An Eclectic Fall Wedding by Rebekah Westover Photography {Part Two}
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Continued from {Part One} - Photos by Rebekah Westover

After taking their vows at The Salt Lake Temple,  the newlyeds and their closeknit group of guests retreated to the Memorial House in Memory Grove.   During the spring and summer months, Becca and Jason would ride bikes to Memory Grove every Sunday and spend the afternoon picnicking and watching all of the dogs play. They fell in love with the area, and once they discovered the venue, it was a must for the reception!

The handmade décor was a labor of love.  Inspired by Anthropologie-esque repurposing of common materials into kitschy, creative décor items,  the couple salvaged glass bottles for centerpieces, utilized vintage sheet music for table runners, and pinned seating assignments on an antique dress form.  Roots prettied up the displays with a palette of autumn florals, tying it all together. Grace Harvell, of The Graceful Baker, prepared the dreamiest and most delicious, three-tiered carrot cake that Becca, Jason, and their guests had ever tasted!

As we sit and soak in all of the creativity, we’re wishing these two a lifetime of love…

An Eclectic Fall Wedding by Rebekah Westover Photography {Part One}
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

A wedding of two creative types always yields some serious inspiration, and Becca and Jason’s wedding was no exception.  The two met way back in the first grade and went all the way up thru high school together.  But it wasn’t until years later, when Becca was living in San Francisco and Jason in Idaho, that the two fell in love over long distance.  Becca is a contemporary ballet dancer, while Jason is an entrepreneur and graphic designer; together they designed a day that focused on their connection with close friends and family. They made use of November’s eclectic fall palette and created loads of charming décor for their Salt Lake City celebration.  These photos evoke such joy- a big thanks to Rebekah Westover for sharing them with us!

Head over to part two…

A Bold Beach Affair by Lindsey Gomes Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

He loves the ocean, while she adores quirky bright colors.  After Nick and Piper got engaged in March of 2011, the duo set out to plan a modern, bold beach affair.  Piper immediately called her sister, Niki Martin of Events Redefined, who helped her to quickly book some favorite vendors.  These fresh photos by Lindsey Gomes gorgeously portray their ‘mission accomplished’ and exude such a vibrance and joy.  

With a year and a half engagement, Piper had plenty of time to fall in love with one bridal gown, then change her mind completely and opt for another that suited her style even better.  In the end, she was so glad that she made the switch!  The maids dressed in mix-and-match, deep sea blue frocks and carried bright contrast bouquets designed by April Flowers.  

Under a birchwood archway amongst mini terrariums of apricot blooms,  Nick and Piper married in a completely customized ceremony.   Revealing their personal, handwritten vows to one another was the highlight of the day!  

Post-ceremony, it was all about relaxing, fun, and dancing!  The laid back couple looked to April to create a fresh, relaxed ambiance with textured greens and wooden box centerpieces and to Niki to incorporate that blissful beachy vibe into the evening. I’m utterly refreshed by all of this great color and oceanside style; super big thanks to Lindsey Gomes for sending this charmer our way!

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
