Jessica + Matthew: Whimsical Eastern Shore Wedding by Hudson Nichols Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

As the weather warms up, we can’t help but daydream about the most idyllic places on the planet to spend the summer months.  You know, coastal spots with harsh winters that become completely alive with gorgeous foliage, visitors, and cool water lapping up on the- for a brief few months- warm sandy shores.  Jessica and Matthew’s May wedding transports us to such a spot- Trappe, Maryland, where they married on a sunny day at their family farm.  We’re completely taken by the entire event, from their easy-breezy style to the pops of whimsical, vibrant color. And it doesn’t seem that it could have been captured more perfectly than it was in these sunlit photos by Hudson Nichols Photography.

Jessica glowed in an organza Badgley Mischka gown, and had her long curls sideswept in a pretty low-do.  Much like the rest of the event, she emanated an effortless beauty.  The florals, with pops of color inspired by a desert sunset, were sourced from a local farm.  The bride lended her creative touch to many of the day’s details, designing the romantic country wedding of their dreams in a place they both hold dear in their hearts.

Lindsay + Luke: A Romantic Backyard Barbecue Wedding by Stacey Hedman
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

This dreamy East coast couple, married in Massachusetts last August in an inspiring al fresco affair.  The sun-filled event was held poolside at Lindsay’s family home, and emphasized vibrant summer florals, amazing food, the connection of friends and family, and lots of dancing!  With a romantic backyard wedding on their minds, the couple added a barbecue reception element, and when it was all said and done, a casually stylish and charming day ensued.  We’re swooning over Lindsay’s laid-back bridal style (gown by J. Crew), the gorgeous organic blooms (by Petal Flower Design), the touch-of-prep East Coast vibe, and Stacey Hedman’s incredible visual depiction of their love story!

Lindsay and Luke met in Boston; she was a ‘wingwoman’ for a friend of hers, and he was a ‘wingman’ for a friend of his. As fate would have it, they were the two to find love!   The couple said their vows at the First Parish Church in Concord, then headed into the soft summer sunlight for portraits.  The bride’s family home was an idyllic locale for a classy backyard celebration; florals and candles floated in the pool and guests gathered on the porch for a spread of coastal cuisine.

Lovely Vineyard Wedding by elisa b Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Get ready for a dose of loveliness!  This East Coast pair married on a scenic vineyard in Virginia.  Maria and Will’s wedding featured a lovely purple palette and a sweet surprise end to the evening.  Here is their story in photos by elisa b Photography.Maria is a Vermont girl and dreamed of a wedding in an organic, natural setting with lots of pretty scenery.  They came across their perfect locale at Veritas Vineyards in Afton, Virginia.  Maria’s favorite color has been purple since she was little, so the couple drew inspiration from the vineyard to design an elegant, purple-infused wedding day!  Pat’s Floral Design was the creative mind behind all of the charming, feminine florals.Maria and Will met in Boston, where Maria’s cousin brought them together in a secret ‘set-up’ during a friendly gathering. Over the course of a gorgeous New England fall and a cold and snowy winter, they fell in love.  Will had long been planning a move to Virginia that spring for medical school, while coincidentally, Maria was accepted into a PhD program at the University of Virginia.  The stars were aligned!  Rain nearly threatened the outdoor ceremony, but after only a few drops of rain, it held up just fine.

After they were wed, everyone headed indoors to celebrate in a light-filled ballroom.  As a focal point, the florist put a gorgeous tree behind the head table and hung lanterns from the branches.  Candlelight and beautiful florals filled the room.  At the end of the evening, there was a fun surprise for guests:  the donut wagon from Carpe Donut!

There’s more to see from this sweet wedding {over here}!

A Romantic Pastel Real Wedding by Marie Labbancz Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Since Easter is this weekend, I thought it was perfectly timely to share Catherine and David’s romantic, pastel Pennsylvania wedding.  The day had a very classic East Coast feel, with a traditional Catholic ceremony at St. John Vianney Church and a reception at the private country club near the family’s home.  Catherine and David’s timeless romance was documented by New Jersey-based photographer, Marie LabbanczCatherine wore a sophisticated Monique Lhuillier gown in all lace; the maids were dressed in barely pink frocks.  Everyone carried lush peach, pink, and white peony bouquets by Nancy Saam.  I can’t get enough of this sweet spring palette!

East Coast elegance met classic romance for the reception at the Philadelphia Country Club, which was adorned with the prettiest garden florals and a petal-embellished buttercream cake!

Many congratulations to the lovely couple, Catherine & David!
