Classic Elegance at the Beverly Hills Hotel by Michelle Warren
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings, Uncategorized

Elisha and David’s Southern California wedding fills our hearts with sunshine! From the bride’s sweet ballet flats to the textured white bouquets, everything about this ceremony feels elegant, refined, and inviting. Set on a “perfect” day at The Peninsula Beverly Hills, the intimate family affair (Elisha’s stepfather officiated) took place outdoors by the hotel fountain, which was turned on moments after they exchanged vows. Michelle Warren was on hand to capture the magic, and we’re thrilled to share her lovely images today.

Rustic Farm + Vineyard Wedding by Heather Elizabeth Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Kim and Jon envisioned their day to be shabby chic with a rustic barn in the background, lit by market lights.  After dreaming it all up, they discovered Boa Ventura De Caires Winery in Livermore, California, and it was the total package. Complete with an apricot palette and sunflowers for days, the wedding of these high school sweethearts was a summer dream. Many thanks to Heather Elizabeth Photography for sending this over!

This how-we-met is definitely one for the grandkids!  The pair met on the first day of high school: Jon thought Kim was a cute older classman, but she was a freshman too.  Jon wasn’t available at the time, but Kim thought he was a nice looking fellow.  Once Jon became available, she told her mom and found out that their mamas were friends when they were pregnant!  Much to Kim’s surprise, her mother also mentioned that  she was named after Jon’s older sister, Kimberly Kay.   At the time, their moms never thought that there would ever be any coinciding with the names…  That is, until Kim and Jon dated thru high school and college, then moved out to Hawaii together where Jon was stationed in the the military.  He proposed, then made her the new Ms. Kimberly Kay Worswick!  What a story~ Love it!

A Touch of Rustic & Trend by Paper Antler Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

This week’s real wedding was a pure celebration of family, friends, great food and tons of dancing. Lissa and Paul aimed to throw a great party, choosing the lush Hilltop in Spring Green, Wisconsin as their unique venue. Paul works as a nurse in a local ER and is also a flight nurse in the Air Force; Lissa works as an attorney. The ten-month engagement was an incredibly busy time, as Paul was deployed overseas, they bought a new house, and, about three months before the wedding, they found out they were expecting their first baby! Whew..!  They still pulled off one heck of gorgeous and sweet wedding.  The décor balanced rustic details with a touch of ikat trend and a dash of peachy romance… all captured beautifully by the good folks at Paper Antler!

Lissa was such a classic beauty in a Romona Keveza Legends gown and matching mantilla veil, while the bridesmaids wore grey chiffon frocks by J. Crew to complement the organic palette of greys, greens, and soft peach.  The couple wed surrounded by loved ones and the great embrace of nature. 

The drought that struck the midwest over the summer let up just in time for the wedding — it was raining on and off on the day-of. Luckily, the rain, which lit up the lush green landscape, stopped thirty minutes before and they were able to host most of the festivities outdoors.  After a cocktail hour of lawn games, guests settled into a romantic nook on the property for a reception of rustic beauty.

Daffodil Parker wove peach garden roses into the décor adding a soft romantic element against the trendy ikat patterned table runners and rustic display of candlelight.  Instead of a wedding cake, the couple opted for fresh-out-the-oven homemade cookies and ice cream. The guests loved it!

Be sure to head over to the full gallery to enjoy more inspiring photos from the day!

Massive congratulations to Lissa and Paul on their new family!

Handcrafted Fall Fest Reception by Meg Ruth Photo
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

This week’s real wedding has all the elements of a quintessential fall day.  The amber, peach, coral and gold palette, topped with a heartfelt family feel made this just the story to share days before the holiday.  The newlyweds- Juliet and Stuart- share a love of indie music and being outdoors, so they hoped for a rustic style barn wedding.  Hosting their big day in a barn didn’t turn out, but with the help of friends and family, they spruced up the Cultural Hall of Rosecrest Ward to look like a rustic, eclectic little venue with vintage whimsy and fall charm.  Meg Ruth captured their sweet connection and creative style in rich, beautiful photographs.  Enjoy every last kiss and bit of autumn color!

The couple has been together for years, with Stu waiting for Juliet while she was a missionary in Argentina. They both now work full time and attend school —  and did so all while planning the wedding!  After a private ceremony at the LDS Temple in Salt Lake City, the couple was greeted by a crowd of loved ones to wish them well.  Juliet has been a Martha Stewart and Anthropologie fan for years, so for her, it was all about the handmade, eclectic vibe.  The bride and her cousin, Kim from Designs by KF, rolled up their sleeves to incorporate DIY elements like blue mason jar centerpieces, paper goods, and reception backdrops-  the result was full-on charm!

From the exquisite florals to the vintage rentals, the fabulous DIY- décor factor to the darling cake, every ounce was meaningful, personal, and utterly heartfelt.
