Susan + Nick: A Coral and Teal Midwest Real Wedding by Jackie Cooper Photo
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

These rediculously cute lovebirds met in the college housing at the University of Kansas.  Susan first saw him during ‘game night’ in the halls, then later recognized him amongst hundreds of people in her Intro to Journalism class.  Susan says, ‘When the teacher told us to form groups for the semester, I immediately hunted him down, thinking that if I paired up with a neighbor, I wouldn’t have to travel far to work on projects!’  After the class was over, they continued to get together for ‘Journalism Movie Nights,’ which were really just an excuse to hang out.  After a year and a half of will-they-won’t-they tension Susan and Nick finally ended up together—and never looked back.  Revel in the fresh palette and sweetness of their wedding day with these blissful photographs by Jackie Cooper Photo!

It was an all-out summer celebration; the coral, teal and yellow palette- a fresh nod to the hot day in Kansas. Their ultimate goal was to throw a colorful, bold party; a reunion of sorts for their college friends.  The bride wore an ultra-feminine, sweetheart neckline gown by Wtoo, while the maids mixed and matched in teal frocks from the Jim Hjelm Occasions Collection.  Bursts of white hydrangea bouquets for the bridesmaids and a coral garden rose bouquet for the bride were the perfect complement!

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 Reveal… and a Real Wedding!
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Today’s real wedding is a very special reveal! When we heard that the fab folks at Alfred Angelo were celebrating their real brides by selecting one to be their ‘Facebook Cover Girl’ each month, we thought it was brilliant.  We were honored and flattered to help them with the selection process and so excited to announce that Mrs. Ticona Fillah is February’s lucky lady. Ticona married the love of her life, Vince, this past September, in a vibrantly romantic wedding in Potomac, Maryland. We snagged these stunning photographs by Judah Avenue Photography to share the day!

Ticona’s dramatic drop waist style gown looked as if it was made just for her!  Her classic, yet modern bridal look was complemented by rich, bold hues of the bridal party attire.  She shared that their inspiration for planning was ‘tradition and romance with great food, and non-stop dancing. We really wanted our guests to share in our love and union, and to have an amazing time!’

After taking their vows in a traditional ceremony at the church,  the celebration continued in a nearby hall.  The reception was glamorously adorned with submerged florals and candlelight.  After pouring over the details for almost a year, an evening of all-out dancing ensued in the dreamy and carefully constructed ambiance.

A Bold Beach Affair by Lindsey Gomes Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

He loves the ocean, while she adores quirky bright colors.  After Nick and Piper got engaged in March of 2011, the duo set out to plan a modern, bold beach affair.  Piper immediately called her sister, Niki Martin of Events Redefined, who helped her to quickly book some favorite vendors.  These fresh photos by Lindsey Gomes gorgeously portray their ‘mission accomplished’ and exude such a vibrance and joy.  

With a year and a half engagement, Piper had plenty of time to fall in love with one bridal gown, then change her mind completely and opt for another that suited her style even better.  In the end, she was so glad that she made the switch!  The maids dressed in mix-and-match, deep sea blue frocks and carried bright contrast bouquets designed by April Flowers.  

Under a birchwood archway amongst mini terrariums of apricot blooms,  Nick and Piper married in a completely customized ceremony.   Revealing their personal, handwritten vows to one another was the highlight of the day!  

Post-ceremony, it was all about relaxing, fun, and dancing!  The laid back couple looked to April to create a fresh, relaxed ambiance with textured greens and wooden box centerpieces and to Niki to incorporate that blissful beachy vibe into the evening. I’m utterly refreshed by all of this great color and oceanside style; super big thanks to Lindsey Gomes for sending this charmer our way!
