Ashley + Dustin: A Luxe Vintage Wedding by jHenderson Studios
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Calling all glam brides! Get ready to be wowed by the amazing tablescapes in Ashley and Dustin’s Nashville wedding. From the glitzy chandeliers to the rhinestone-wrapped centerpieces, we’re loving the way this couple blended urbane and vintage aesthetics to create their own unique cosmopolitan look. Special thanks to jHenderson Studios for sharing the day with us!

“We wanted [our wedding] to feel modern, contemporary, and unique,” says the bride. “We wanted it formal, fun, and interactive for our guests, so we selected a great band and included a photo booth. Later on in the evening, we passed out glow sticks for our guests to use while dancing. We also had a live painter documenting the entire event.”

Thanks again to jHenderson Studios for sending over these pretty pictures! If you liked this elegant urban wedding, you should also check out Courtney and Adam’s shabby chic California affair and Katelyn and Brad’s juicy Colorado nuptials.

Katie + Alex: A Summery Southern Engagement Shoot by Almond Leaf Studios
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Engagements

Today’s gorgeous engagement shoot comes straight from the South—Chapel Hill, NC to be exact. Katie and Alex met as undergrads at the University of North Carolina (go Tarheels!), so when it came time to capture their pre-wedding bliss, ace photographer Elizabeth Marx of Almond Leaf Studios scouted three picture-perfect spots around campus.  We love the way they used simple outfits and backdrops—it really lets their love for each other (and those beautiful smiles!) shine through.

From the bride-to-be: Alex and I grew up about 20 minutes from each other in small and smaller towns in eastern North Carolina.  As close as we were geographically, and as intertwined as our families were in the local arts and athletics communities, it wasn’t until college that we (finally) met.  Our overlap at UNC Chapel Hill was very brief, but we were introduced by mutual friends during Alex’s senior year and my freshman year.  Post-grad, Alex and I both found ourselves in Charlotte (he beat me there by three years, naturally, and had secured a graduate degree in the meantime) and apparently we both needed a little nudging from our mothers (guilty, yes) to get us on our first date.  After sharing chips and salsa and a bottle of wine at a local Mexican restaurant, we realized that the saying is true—Mothers do always know best. And here it is, four years later, and we are getting hitched!

Emily + Ben: A Vintage Tennessee Wedding by Gideon Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

From fond farewells to an emotional first look, Emily and Ben’s sweet Southern wedding is filled with special moments. Their vintage-inspired affair took place on a cool October day on the grounds of the Heartwood Hall estate just outside of Memphis, Tennessee, and we love how they blended traditional rustic touches with a modern hipster aesthetic. Special thanks to Gideon Photography for sharing photos from the day with us! You can view even more details in the full gallery.

Emily and Ben originally met at a conference in Monterey, California. She ended up moving from Tennessee to California to intern at the church that hosted the conference, and Ben happened to be a youth pastor at the very same church. He waited a full year for her to complete her internship before asking her on their first date with an elaborate scavenger hunt. The duo exchanged vows back in Tennessee during the Fall of Emily’s twenty-first year, which had always been a dream for the bride.
