Kendall+ Keddy: Great Gatsby Glam Photographed by Caroline + Ben Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Gatsby-hype or not,  Kendall and Keddy’s Austin wedding is an absolute knockout.  The bride’s favorite book is in fact, The Great Gatsby, and her favorite era? All of the art-deco and glamour of the 1920′s.  The Austin celebration was drenched with vintage-inspired details from the time period and the photographs by Caroline +  Ben Photography could not have captured the style, emotion, and opulence more perfectly.

For the ceremony, the couple planned to surprise one another with a scripture reading.  Unbeknownst to either of them, they had selected the exact same one, Ruth 1:16: ‘But Ruth replied: Do not persuade me to leave you or go back and not follow you. For wherever you go, I will go, and wherever you live, I will live; your people will be my people, and your God will be my God.’

Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Q: What’s black, white, and hot pink all over? A: Lauren and Mike’s modern NYC-themed nuptials! Though this Manhattan-based couple married in Rochester, Michigan, the Big Apple was a major source of inspiration for their glam ballroom wedding. “Ever since I saw the Sex & the City movie, I knew that I wanted black bridesmaid dresses with bright fuchsia flowers,” says Lauren. With the help of Courtney at Petals Planning Company, the rest of the graphic decor followed suit! Thanks to photographer Calynn Berry for sharing her images of this metropolitan celebration.

Modern Romance at the Four Seasons by Michelle Lindsay Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

When a wedding planner gets hitched, you know the results are going to be extraordinary. From the candlelit ceremony to the violet and ‘hot lady pink’ color palette, Jennifer and Jamie’s glam ballroom celebration at the Four Seasons in D.C.  was filled with details that spelled modern romance.  Almost two hundred guests traveled from twenty three states to see them say ‘I do’, and they kicked off the party with glasses of pomegranate seed-garnished prosecco at the ceremony. Ace photographer Michelle Lindsay documented the fuchsia luxury with vibrancy and clarity—we can practically feel the excitement radiating off these images!

Despite living on the same street in Arlington, VA, hectic schedules kept the bride and groom from a typical courtship. She’s an event planner, and he’s a surgeon, so they got to know each other over pre-work Starbucks dates and late night walks with Jennifer’s dog Bentley. A year into the relationship, Jamie proposed in San Francisco. He had a gorgeous engagement ring for her—and a blinged-out collar for Bentley!

The couple opted for a large, party-style celebration in the city where they fell in love: Washington, DC. They married at a luxe hotel in the historic Georgetown neighborhood, and streamlined the reception to involve as few breaks from music and dancing as possible. As an event planner, Jennifer loves the drama of colored lighting, and worked with A2Z Music Factory to turn the Four Seasons ballroom the perfect shade of pink. Another favorite detail of the bride’s: the textured rosette table linens, which felt as luxurious as they looked.

Intimate Hawaiian Real Wedding by James Rubio Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Bright persimmon hues and deep and very vibrant fuchsias…all on the scenic island of Kauai… sounds like paradise to me. Claire and Jing’s destination wedding is a bundle of gorgeousness. The bride and groom were born in difference Chinese cities, but met in London where they attended college.  After five years there, and three subsequent years in a long distance relationship, the couple was very happy to make a home together in Hong Kong and jet off to Hawaii for an intimate celebration.  Despite some unanticipated rain, these beautiful photos by James Rubio Photography are pure proof of a joyful and stunning wedding day!

Living in Hong Kong, the couple envisioned Hawaii to be sunny and bright.  What they weren’t counting on was the continuous tropical rain.  Although minorly disappointed, they embraced the Hawaiian mist and moved forward with an outdoor ceremony that was stunning to say the least.  Martin Roberts’ floral design was the ideal blend of vibrant island elegance, framing the entire event in exotic beauty.

Claire, in a sophisticated one-shoulder Vera Wang and Jing, in a classic black tuxedo, later took more photos in the warm rains and ended up happily soaked.  The locals reported that the Hawaiian rain was good luck for a wedding!  The couple joked back, ‘Well if that’s the case, today we are indeed extremely blessed people.’

Claire is a photography fanatic and came across James Rubio’s photography from thousands of miles away.  After falling in love with his style, the plan for the Hawaiian destination wedding emerged.

The quaint reception for ten was a site to behold!  On a covered porch at the Plantation Gardens, a dinner table with architectural centerpieces and glowing candlelight was set.  With the rain misting outside, it was a cozy little setting.  

We’re loving all of this Hawaiian eye candy and Claire and Jing’s impeccable style.  The juxtaposition of island beauty with luxury and elegance so makes me swoon.

  Happy wishes to this joy-filled couple! xoxo
