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.

Suzanna + James: A Very NYC Engagement by Alea Lovely Fine Art Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Engagements

Suzanna and James’ engagement photos make NYC look like just about the most romantic place on Earth… from the Brooklyn Bridge to the steps of a brownstone, Central Park to Times Square, Alea Lovely captured the bride and groom-to-be, dressed up, dressed down, and dressed for a night on the town in soft fading sunlight…

Alea says… This was a lovely New York City engagement. Suzanna and James just got engaged a few months ago and are planning their wedding for 2013. It was beautiful in the fall for New York and we shot in Central Park, on the Brooklyn bridge and in Times Square to get the full feeling of NYC. We went with colored attire for the park that gave it a very fall look, and stuck with clean dark formal looks for the bridge and Times Square. I felt that look was very “New York” and fitting for the couple, as the bride-to-be is an attorney and the groom works for the city as a developer. New York is their home and I wanted to give them photographs that resonated with their personalities and their story.

Artsy Brooklyn Real Wedding by Katie Osgood
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

What a treat it is to feature the wedding of a couple of very talented creative types…  Clara and Dave went all out designing and creating a funky, artistic wedding in Brooklyn that was totally, perfectly them.  After looking at venues that were not quite their style, Clara and Dave found the Galapagos Art Space and fell in love.  Armed with two pantone colors, Clara began the search for the perfect papers, inks, stamps, flowers, and accessories that would become the expression of both her and Dave’s vision. The DIY element of this wedding is so impressive; we’re delighted to share this unique set of photos by Katie Osgood Photography!

Clara, a graphic designer by trade, dreamed up an entire suite of modern paper goods;  she also made the boutonnieres and bow-ties, and with a little help from a good friend, executed the rest of the florals. We just love the awesome candy apple red that gave this modern, urban wedding a distinctive look.

Dave and his pals did the full reception setup the morning of, before fancying up in suits and Clara’s handmade bow-ties!  Dave also designed and set up a DIY photo booth- they used their iMac to capture, frame and print photo booth favors for guests to take home.

The ceremony took place in front of the scenic Brooklyn Bridge (and their addition of colorful balloons and paper flowers), in Brooklyn Bridge Park.  Perfectly worded and officiated by their dear friend/roommate/florist extraordinaire, the ceremony was extra special- filled with laughter and tears.

After enjoying the breeze on an oddly warm October day in New York, everyone headed over to the Galapagos Art Space for the party!  Even the guestbook was brilliantly thought up-  they created a large puzzle out of one of their engagement photos.  Friends and family wrote well wishes on the backs of the pieces, and the kids had a blast piecing it together at the reception.

The gem that is the Galapagos Art Space is a rockin’ party spot.  Guests danced under colorful lanterns, and came back to Earth for an incredible piece of Lady M Confections cake and a scoop of organic ice cream from the Blue Marble Ice Cream cart.  All this creativity has us sooo inspired!  Make sure to see the full spread of photos here.
