Samantha + Tanner: A Hint of 1920’s Paris
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings, Reception

Samantha and Tanner got engaged in Paris, symbolically creating a ‘lock of love’ on the Pont Du Alexandre III Bridge, throwing the key into the Seine River.  Talk about romantic…  They drew from their epic engagement to plan a wedding with French inspirations, every detail a charming tribute to their commitment to one another.  A day of feather, furs, glitter and glam unfolded, here’s their story in photos by Ashley Rose Photography. Samantha wore a chic, fitted Priscilla of Boston gown; Tanner wore a custom tuxedo with a herringbone button down and bowtie. Don’t they look totally perfect together?!  Shades of plum and indigo gave the palette wow-factor, while simple white pomanders hung along the aisle on the rooftop of  Seven Degrees in Laguna Beach.  The bride’s favorite moment was standing at the altar next to her future husband, as her brother officiated the ceremony. She says, ‘At that moment, all the noise of the outside world faded away as he spoke directly to us. It felt as if we were the only people present.’  After the dashing afternoon ceremony,  everyone headed down to the Media Room for a dramatic, 1920’s Paris-style reception.  Guests scooped up vintage key escort cards as they made their way into the glamorous party, which was outfitted with crystal chandeliers, tall feather centerpieces, and the glow of magenta light.  

Samantha’s advice: ‘Take the boring traditions you don’t like about weddings and throw them out the window! But most importantly, enjoy every second of it because it really does go by in the blink of an eye.’

A sincere thank you to Samantha and Tanner for sharing their stunning photos and romantic story with us; we’re awe-inspired.

A Beach Wedding in The Outer Banks by Echard Wheeler
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

We are wild for purple… amethyst, plum, and violet… and of course we’re always delighted when a wedding album sweeps us away to the beach!  Marie and Nate’s wedding in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina was a blend of the two: gorgeous color and sweet East Coast scenery.  This Outer Banks wedding, photographed by Echard Wheeler, was beachy & intimate, with the perfect amount of casual elegance.

Marie brought elegance to the beach by wearing this classic Justin Alexander gown.  The bridesmaids, who flew in from all over the country, looked so pretty in plum-colored Alfred Sung dresses.  For the ceremony, the focus was on the vows and the amazing coastal setting.

This adorable couple met in Rocket Club in high school, and kept in touch throughout the years. After many years of talking and many moves around the country, Nate finally asked Marie on a date- they were married three years later!

Marie and Nate love the Outer Banks, and made it the highlight of the day.  After a beachfront ceremony, the reception was just steps away, indoors at the Pier House. They also really wanted to support local businesses, so they opted for saltwater taffy favors from Forbes Candies, florals from Bells and Whistles, and a menu of local seafood.  The cake from Argyle’s brought the beach theme inside.

Their special day began with a little drizzle, but ended up with sunshine and a warm breeze.  As evening came, indoor lanterns made the reception glow…

With the vibrant florals, amazing venue, and an adorably happy couple- this wedding was just filled with our favorite things! <3

Eclectic + Eco-Friendly in Seattle
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

This week’s real wedding from Jagger Photography is entirely charming and lovely.  We totally adore the way Beth and Kevin infused their values and personality into a day that was, well, completely ‘them!’  Beth chose a color palette that paired natural tones with mulled wine and cranberry hues.  The florals were sourced from a local farm- (and they really pop in the photos)!  The vibe was laid back and cozy.  All in all- the couple went for sweet simplicity, natural beauty, and sustainability… and the photos couldn’t have turned out more perfect.  Enjoy!
