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.’

Gilded in Gold: 3 Ways
Posted by Kate. Filed under Color Palettes, Wedding Inspiration

I’m still gaga for anything gold, but there are so many ways to pull off this palette.  Inspired by the myriad of gorgeous gold photos I found, here are three concepts to feast your eyes on:  One warm, romantic, beautifully vintage. One deep, dramatic, exciting, and glamorous. And the third, a sweet boho look with a trendy spin ♥

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.

A Brooklyn Engagement by Amber Gress Photography {Part 2}
Posted by Kate. Filed under Engagements, Photography

An engagement session so nice we had to feature it twice! After kicking off the celebration with bubbly St. Germain cocktails (see the first part of their shoot here), Colin and Masha slipped into some fancier duds and stepped out onto the streets of Brooklyn. Stylist Jenna Cantagallo rocked the glamorous, easy-going vibe, while photographer Amber Gress was on hand to capture the magic.

Here, the pair – who met at a party in Manhattan’s Lower East Side – strikes a few dramatic poses in front of a classic brownstone rowhouse. It’s darn near impossible to not love their unique vibe of easygoing glamour. We’re swooning over their style selections, from Masha’s sequined one-shoulder cocktail dress to Colin’s crushed velvet blazer (both sourced from their very own closets).

Congrats again to the gorgeous couple, and many thanks to Amber for sharing these amazing photos with us!

PS—To kick off 2013, Amber is offering a limited number of free engagement sessions to couples based in or traveling to the New York City area during the month of February. Find more details on her blog.  Let’s just say, we’d make the trip to jump on that opportunity!
