Angelica and Nicolas were married at the Olive Boutique Hotel in Condado, Puerto Rico on July 13.  “From the moment that we found it, we knew it was the perfect place because it is private and rustic,” Nicolas said. The bride wore a v-neck lace fit ‘n’flare wedding gown with a keyhole back, accessorized with her hair in an updo and a pair of peep-toe platform pumps, while the groom wore a navy blue suit, accessorized with a tie. Bridesmaids wore mix ‘n’ matched short chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of roses and baby’s breath. Guests (all thirty of them) were greeted with a picture frame that said, “Thanks for your love and support” as well as sunglasses to beat the summer heat on top of the roof terrace. The ceremony took place right at 5 o’clock just before sunset with scenic views of the lagoon. “It was a beautiful day that had many details, but the best was the sunset the God gave us,” he said. Fun fact: it was even officiated by Nicolas’ father. The reception took place shortly after. Restored wooden tables were decorated with log centerpieces, votive candles, and coffee bean bags, which also served double-duty as favors, at each place setting, surrounded by upholstered chairs. The food was one of the main highlights of the night. Why? Because it was inspired by the Mediterranean cuisine. Plus, not to mention the three-tiered naked cake. The newlyweds’ best advice? “Our wedding was made 85 percent by ourselves because it was very clear what we wanted and could do, so we suggest that on everything is the dream of the couple that will be reflected, whether made by you or a wedding planner,” Nicolas said. “Further, if you like our wedding, the best option is a renowened restaurant!”

Jessica and Ross were married in a traditional church ceremony at the Catholic Student Center at Washington University followed by a reception at Jefferson Memorial in St. Louis, Mo. on November 16. “Jefferson Underground has personality, and we wanted something other than a cookie-cutter wedding,” Jessica said. “We loved the unfinished brick walls and industrial feel to it as well as the outdoor space we could us for the bar and dance floor.” The bride wore a strappy satin fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with statement earrings, necklace, and sash, while the groom wore a three-piece gray suit, accessorized with a tie. Bridesmaids wore mix ‘n’ matched short navy blue dresses and carried bouquets of dahlias, anemones, silver brunia balls, thistles, and succulents. “From the beginning, we wanted the theme of our wedding to be really neat lighting,” she said. “The Aries Company helped us realize that dream with the string lights and Edison light fixtures. It really stood out in pictures and added a special glow to the whole evening.” Dinner was all tons and tons of local flavors! “We wanted to show our guests a taste of St. Louis — Schlafyly seasonal beer, BBQ, and ice cream with ingredients sourced all over,” Jessica said. Tables were decorated with gray linens, assorted vases and vessels centerpieces, and yarn art numbers. Notice the goat cheese potato chip favor bags at each place setting? Plus, the personalized plastic cups that also served double-duty as escort cards. “After the first dance, it started to sprinkle and rain a little bit,” she said. “We were worried it would ruin the reception, but our guests weren’t deterred. We will never forget dancing in the rain with all of our family and friends, and it made for some unforgettable memories and hilarious pictures.”

Tanya and Adam were married at Hotel Vitale in San Francisco, Calif. on May 18. “Not only do we love the city, we were lucky enough that the bay lights were up in time for our wedding creating the perfect backdrop,” Tanya said. She wore a sweetheart fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a Juicy Couture statement necklace, bracelet, and earrings, while bridesmaids wore blush dresses with cute bows at their waists. Notice how their bouquets feature succulents? We’re suckers for them! Following the rooftop ceremony, the newlyweds danced down the aisle and escaped to a room to spend a few minutes alone. Meanwhile, guests enjoyed hand-picked wines and heavy appetizers instead of a sit-down dinner. The cake even featured their pup!

Eco-Friendly Spring Rooftop Wedding in Florida

Posted by Caitlin on Aug 01, 2013

Amber & Steven

May 4

St. Augustine, Florida  

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

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

The rooftop, which was open and airy for the wedding ceremony and dancing portion of the reception, sold us on The White Room. It was absolutely the most ideal location for a wedding party of 80.  Everyone stayed and danced even past the 11 p.m. deadline.

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

1. Photographer

2. Wedding dress

3. Dance party reception

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

Our wedding ceremony exit is something we will all always remember.  Once our officiant officially announced us as husband and wife, we danced to “The Good Life,” by Kanye West on our exit down the aisle.  It was totally unexpected by our audience, since our ceremony was so sentimental and sweet. However, it fit our personalities and following the exit, everyone switched gears and was ready for the dance reception to begin.

Peach and Gray Rooftop Style Shoot in Massachusetts

Posted by Caitlin on Feb 12, 2013

As part of our Valentine’s Day week of inspiration, we thought this peach and gray rooftop styled shoot would spark some romance. Elegant yet modern, it’s filled with pops of color, details such as “tears of joy” tissue packets and not to mention, a lounge complete with cigars and martinis.  The venue not only offers beautiful backdrops for photographs but a feel of intimacy midst the bustling city landscape. Fall in love with one look:
