Jenna + Troy: A Romantic Ranch Wedding by Lindsey Gomes Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Ranch weddings don’t get any more romantic than when the venue is your parent’s home… and the ranch is the one you grew up on, raising horses and reveling in the coastal California weather.  And we didn’t even mention the soft blush palette!  Jenna and Troy hosted their fresh, relaxed, romantic wedding day among the rolling hills and century-old Oak trees at the bride’s family home in Paso Robles. The bride and groom made the earthy and elegant day their own, and the lovely Lindsey Gomes was on site to photograph every last detail.  From the sequence-embellished bridesmaids dresses to the dreamy garden rose bouquet, we’re swooning over the couple’s style and so-in-love sweetness.

Jenna was outfitted in head to toe lace in a sophisticated silhouette by Enzoani.  Six beaming bridesmaids stood by her side as her cousin (dressed in gold sequence)! married the two in a civil ceremony- in the company of close friends, family, and the wide expanse of nature.  A dramatic burlap and floral archway framed Jenna and Troy as they made it official with their first kiss as husband and wife!

Susan + Nick: A Coral and Teal Midwest Real Wedding by Jackie Cooper Photo
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

These rediculously cute lovebirds met in the college housing at the University of Kansas.  Susan first saw him during ‘game night’ in the halls, then later recognized him amongst hundreds of people in her Intro to Journalism class.  Susan says, ‘When the teacher told us to form groups for the semester, I immediately hunted him down, thinking that if I paired up with a neighbor, I wouldn’t have to travel far to work on projects!’  After the class was over, they continued to get together for ‘Journalism Movie Nights,’ which were really just an excuse to hang out.  After a year and a half of will-they-won’t-they tension Susan and Nick finally ended up together—and never looked back.  Revel in the fresh palette and sweetness of their wedding day with these blissful photographs by Jackie Cooper Photo!

It was an all-out summer celebration; the coral, teal and yellow palette- a fresh nod to the hot day in Kansas. Their ultimate goal was to throw a colorful, bold party; a reunion of sorts for their college friends.  The bride wore an ultra-feminine, sweetheart neckline gown by Wtoo, while the maids mixed and matched in teal frocks from the Jim Hjelm Occasions Collection.  Bursts of white hydrangea bouquets for the bridesmaids and a coral garden rose bouquet for the bride were the perfect complement!

DIY Wednesday: All-White Bouquet
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself, Flowers

By Brittni Mehlhoff

Accent colorful bridesmaid dresses with all-white bouquets, for a high-contrast statement that really pops. Using just two types of flowers and one filler, you can create a gorgeous monochromatic bouquet that any bridesmaid, or bride for that matter, will love.

You will Need: anemones • ranunculus • veronica white flowers (filler) • 2 feet of ribbon • floral wire • scissors

Step One. Start by removing excess leaves from all the stems. Then, choose a couple of larger flowers and criss cross the stems underneath the blooms. A couple of anemones and one ranunculu is a good start. Keep in mind that the first few flowers you start with will be in the center of your finished bouquet. So choose good ones because they will be the focal point.

Step Two. Add  a few veronica white flowers next, balanced on opposite sides of the bouquet.  Make them slightly higher than the height of the rest of the bouquet, so they can peek out the top.

Step Three. Once you have that first little bundle of flowers in hand, begin surrounding it with additional ranunculus and anemones. Work all the way around the bouquet to create a balanced look.

Step Four. Finish things off with a few flowers that have a natural curve in the stem to fill in any holes and complete the rounded shape.

Step Five. Next, holding the stems with both hands, one hand at the top close to the flowers and the other toward the bottom of the stems, have a friend wrap floral wire around the stems several times as close to the top as possible. Holding the bouquet with both hands will help ensure that the flowers don’t move around while the wire is being wrapped around the stems.

Step Six. Lastly, cut a piece of ribbon approximately two feet long and wrap it around the stems a few inches below the floral wire to keep the stems in place and add a decorative element. Then, cut stems at the bottom of the bouquet so they are all the same length. Place in a few inches of water until heading out to the ceremony.
