Jessica + Matthew: Whimsical Eastern Shore Wedding by Hudson Nichols Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

As the weather warms up, we can’t help but daydream about the most idyllic places on the planet to spend the summer months.  You know, coastal spots with harsh winters that become completely alive with gorgeous foliage, visitors, and cool water lapping up on the- for a brief few months- warm sandy shores.  Jessica and Matthew’s May wedding transports us to such a spot- Trappe, Maryland, where they married on a sunny day at their family farm.  We’re completely taken by the entire event, from their easy-breezy style to the pops of whimsical, vibrant color. And it doesn’t seem that it could have been captured more perfectly than it was in these sunlit photos by Hudson Nichols Photography.

Jessica glowed in an organza Badgley Mischka gown, and had her long curls sideswept in a pretty low-do.  Much like the rest of the event, she emanated an effortless beauty.  The florals, with pops of color inspired by a desert sunset, were sourced from a local farm.  The bride lended her creative touch to many of the day’s details, designing the romantic country wedding of their dreams in a place they both hold dear in their hearts.

A Rustic Chic Real Wedding by Allie Lindsey Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Ali and Troy’s Oceanside, California wedding aimed to be casual, rustic and fun. From the looks of these gorgeous photos, courtesy of Allie Lindsey Photography- goal accomplished! The palette of navy, grey, burlap and splashes of green (think succulents) was perfect for this relaxed wedding with California country flair.

Ali’s fit and flare Alfred Angelo gown is perfectly chic, especially with that coordinating navy accent sash!  The maids wore lace frocks from Banana Republic, paired with cowgirl boots.  Love that look- it gets me every time.  Leaf it to Lexi Floral Design created ethereal baby’s breath bouquets that tied it all together.

The bride and groom went to high school together, but weren’t friends at the time. Eight years later, Alison’s brother-in-law, who was Troy’s best friend growing up, introduced them. They married in Heritage Park on an amazing, cloudless day in May.

Alison got a lot of her ideas for detail from Pinterest. Those personalized bottles are definitely a Pinterest-worthy highlight!  The reception was catered by the Delicioso Food Truck (how fun)! and the cake table  was crafted by Sweet Thing Bakery. A photo booth played the role of ‘guestbook’ and provided fun favors.

Coordinated by Main Thing Events, this rustic celebration was as sweet as it gets. From the optional quilt seating for the ceremony (which kids loved) to the taco truck and photobooth (which the adults loved), Ali and Troy’s wedding was a hit.  The relaxed vibe allowed for the love to flow- between family, friends, and of course, between the adorable couple <3

A Relaxed Colorado Wedding by Kristopher Orr
Posted by Kate. Filed under Photography, Real Weddings

I’m a long time admirer of Kristopher Orr’s gorgeous film photographs… They just have that special something…  you know.  He photographed Kristen and Collin’s very relaxed and terribly sweet Colorado wedding this past summer.  I’m just loving the groom’s gingham shirt and the bride’s vintage gown…
The best word to desrcibe their day: simple!  They wanted to spend their wedding day in comfortable, casual style… very untraditional. Kristen and Collin’s ceremony was held at the LDS Temple in Colorado, then they headed over to a private residence for the reception. The weather was beautiful and sunny, but not too hot for August in Breckenridge.  They set up badminton and mini golf games in the backyard for guests to play! The reception tables were decorated with tea pots and knick knacks from thrift stores and antique shops.

So much beauty in simplicity…

Happy Wishes to Kristen + Collin!
