Cozy Mountain Wedding by Kristopher Orr
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Brittany and Mark’s wedding in Salt Lake City was held in November… it was intimate, relaxed, and cozy… held in the evening hours at the Mill Creek Inn.  Kristopher Orr documented their memory-filled day in beautiful film photograms.  This first one, so crazy beautiful…  The couple was very relaxed about planning the details, they were mostly concerned with creating a close and comfortable atmosphere with their very favorite people and serving great food.  They worked with a unique deep purple, mustard, and black palette, which was very pretty in the autumn mountain setting.  The pair met at a party while both attending the University of Utah.  A year and a half after they got together, they decided to tie the knot.  Mark works for a small roofing company and Brittany is a PR rep for a physical therapy company.  They share passions for exotic travel, photography, and adventurous outdoor sports!  For a wedding gift, Mark got Brittany an old Yashica 124G Mat twin lens camera. She got him a framed scratch map of the world on which to document their travels together.

During the course of the evening, Mark and Brittany found lots of time to sit and visit with guests.  Just before they cut the cake, Mark gave a beautiful, impromptu speech about his love for Brittany and his gratitude for everyone that had come to share the day.  The entire wedding night just felt like a big, relaxing get together with the people they love.

Intimate Arboretum Wedding by Love Me Sailor
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Allison and Mark’s day was very intimate…only fifteen guests in attendance.

We were taken with the gorgeous film photographs by Love Me Sailor and the pretty jewel-toned palette.  And we thought it inspiring, the way they celebrated their love with a cozy little ceremony in the arboretum and private restaurant reception. The couple met in the West Village in NYC, but they live in Los Angeles, where Allison opened a makeup and beauty lounge called  Blushington– on Sunset Boulevard.  All the ladies at the wedding were treated to hair styles by drybar and makeup by Blushington!  Above, Allison poses with her sister/best friend.  The guest list included only ‘immediate’ family- parents, siblings, and their children.

The private reception was held at a romantic little restaurant called Julienne.  Allison decorated a long family-style table with florals in the colorful, seasonal palette. 

Throughout the planning process, Allison and Mark focused on one thing: their lifelong commitment to one another.  This steadfast devotion made the day utterly unforgettable.  See the full gallery {here}.

As we soak up the last few weeks of summer sun, we’ve got a vibrant yellow and damask California real wedding for you. The lovely couple, Holly and Dieter, met on eHarmony!  A group of co-workers used their savvy party planning skills to coordinate the entire event. (We’re in awe of how the crew pulled together the dessert table)! Holly and Dieter said their vows looking out over the vast blue sea.. and had an intimate gathering with friends and family at their home near Dana Point.  Thanks to Kristi Klemens for sharing these photos with us!

Winter Cabin Wedding in B.C.
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

In the midst of summer, I’m going thru a little season envy right now… (Ya know, I start to think about my winter wardrobe and how nice it would be to pull out sweater.. in the middle of winter I miss all my summer dresses).  I decided to cure that by featuring this rustic, intimate winter cabin wedding!  Alison and Andrew held their DIY-style day in the small patch of rural bliss called Smithers, British Columbia.  Enjoy the sweet and simple styling!
