Patterned Pretty: A Real Wedding by Gideon Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Courtney and Rudy are a fun-loving, bright couple, and their wedding couldn’t have been more of a reflection.  I’m all over their modern style (wait til you see all the fabulous patterning) and these extra-stunning photos by Gideon Photography!  A full day of festivities (morning ceremony, afternoon luncheon, and evening party), tons of support from family and friends, and the bold yellow and black design elements made it unforgettable.

These two sweethearts met in high school, and have been inseparable ever since.  After four years together, they decided it was time to tie the knot, so they planned a May wedding that was filled-to-the-brim with activity and joy.  Bloomers brought Courtney’s love of yellow hues, ranunculus and roses together in a glowing bouquet.  The bride and groom were dressed to the nines, Courtney in Mori Lee and Rudy in a sharp black tuxedo by Adrian’s. These two are adorably smitten… of course there’s nothing more inspiring than that.

The early ceremony at the temple progressed to a luncheon with family and close friends. The couple then kicked it up for a blast of a reception at the gorgeous Ledges, in their hometown of St. George, Utah.  The design elements were over the top… they found the just-right blend of chevron, polka-dots, and modern geometry patterns to end their celebration with a bang.  Lemon-filled floral arrangements,  a ceiling sprinkled with lanterns and a fetching candy bar are just a few of the inspiration ideas I absolutely love.

There were a a few surprises in store for the reception- the groom and his groomsmen sat Courtney down and serenaded her with a rendition of a Backstreet Boys song. Courtney laughed so hard she cried.  This couple shares a commitment, amongst others of course, to never take themselves or life too seriously. Not even when it came to the pristinely designed, four tiered modern beauty by For Goodness Cakes. As they cut the cake, Rudy beat Courtney to the punch and playfully smothered it all over her face!  Courtney redeemed herself, but admits that he ‘won.’ Love that zest…

Modern-Vintage Winter Wedding by Shandro Photo
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Hold your horses… just because it’s officially springtime (YAY)!… doesn’t mean that we don’t have one more winter wedding to show off before we dive headfirst into the season.  With the vintage-glam guinea fowl feather accents and the sharp, perfectly matched wedding party wardrobe, this one had to be shared.  Mackenzie and Ian were married on the weekend of her grandparent’s 66th wedding anniversary, and a winter wonderland in Edmonton, AB, Canada was the setting for their intimate wedding.  Shandro Photo was there to document their modern-vintage day!The wedding party wardrobe is so fun!  I love the sleek black attire with the Guinea fowl-esque polka dot accessories.  It’s just the right amount of matchiness and just terribly charming! The bouquets and boutonnieres featured winter white blooms, berries for a pop of color, and the themed feathers.  The bride designed and planned the entire day and clearly, she has a knack for vintage styling in a fresh, contemporary way!

The evening wasn’t complete without a photo session out in the pristine, new fallen snow.

Big congratulations to Mackenzie and Ian!
