Preppy Navy Blue and Coral Summer Wedding in Canada

Posted by Caitlin on Sep 23, 2013

Cheryl & Dave

August 23  

Milton, Ontario, Canada 

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

Our venue had an intimate feel for celebrating with our family and friends.  We loved the rustic yet elegant décor, and that they use their on-site garden and local foods to create the most delicious meals!

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. We each wrote our own vows, then followed them with joint vows that we created together.  This made our ceremony feel so personal and special to us.  

2. We cut up a fallen tree trunk near our home and used the cross sections of wood as the base for our centerpieces and décor.  

3. I had custom cufflinks made for my groom with pictures of our beloved dog Gus, so that he could be with us on our wedding day!

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

Our crazy and amazing family planned a surprise flash mob before the best man’s speech!

Vibrant Coral and Beige Beach Wedding in California

Posted by Caitlin on Aug 13, 2013

Gale & Josh

July 27

Los Osos, California 

~~~~~~~~

From the photographer: “Having met Josh and Gale at another wedding I captured last year, I knew the fun celebration that was in store.  Gale found the Bay Back Inn online while searching for a wedding venue, and it was perfect. Guests could stay right on the property where the intimate ceremony and reception was held.  The grounds resembled that of Hawaii with the vibrant colors, gardens and oceanfront view.  Old row boats were scattered throughout the venue, and it offered some great props for pictures.  The soft cloud covering lasted the entire day but truly made everything pop off the page.  

Gale was radiant in her dress and had an effortless beauty to her.  Both of their nerves simmered the moment the saw each other.  Having Josh’s cousin perform the ceremony, Josh and Gale exchanged vows overlooking the bay with boats floating by.  While guests enjoyed the cocktail hour, the couple headed to Montana de Oro State Park for some couple shots on the jetties.  Upon returning, everyone indulged in an incredible Mexican food spread with homemade tortillas cooked on site and some of the best guacamole around.  A dessert bar awaiting everyone after the cake was cut and onto dancing they went.  This group truly knows how to celebrate and enjoy being together.” –Ashley Blake of A.

Beautiful Blush and Coral Barn Wedding in California

Posted by Caitlin on Mar 29, 2013

Ashley & Scott

August 4

Nipomo, California 

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The beauty, the originality and the character of the Dana-Powers barn venue made me fall in love with it. Although is was just a “barn,” it felt like the most gorgeous and unique place to have a wedding. The surrounding hills were breathtaking and the furnishings and details that stood throughout the barn were something I couldn’t live without. No other venue we looked at could compare. All our guests didn’t know what to expect, and when they arrived that day, they were all blown away by the beauty.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

 1. Walking down the aisle with my dad, being filled with so much joy and excitement, seeing Scott for the first time that day. Although I thought I’d be full of emotions, I was just so happy.

2. Seeing the flowers come together. I was overly pleased with what my florist did. They were all so beautiful throughout the entire wedding venue.

3. Enjoying all my guests and watching them all have a good time. Being with everyone and celebrating for one night made Scott and I truly happy.

3. Give us the one moment from your wedding that you can’t stop thinking about.

Exchanging vows will forever be the most sentimental and memorable part of my wedding day. Listening to the words of our pastor and looking into Scott’s eyes made me the happiest girl. And I’m so glad all our family and friends were there to share it with. Our pastor said some very touching words to our parents on our behalf, and it was another very special part of the ceremony.

Inspired by current runway trends, and the classic hues of Valentine’s Day – pinks, reds, and corals – we selected wedding dresses and bridesmaid styles that would be totally perfect for a V-Day wedding – or for any other time of the year. And boy, did our models have fun wearing them!

Summer Coral Wedding Inspiration

Posted by Jeffra on May 12, 2011

Hello gorgeous summer! For those of you planning a summer wedding, don’t forget to consider coral for a main accent color. It’s warm, and also versatile enough that you don’t have to be too concerned on the shading (like with blue, often if you’re going for a light blue, you end up with several different hues). Coral is great to mix and match, as seen in the bridesmaid dresses below. Plus it’s a color that truly pops in outdoor photos. Our favorite part of this entire board…(besides the mini cotton candy treats, yum!)…is including your dog in your summer wedding!
