1. Dark & Dreamy Same Sex Geometric Wedding With Serious Estate Glamour

    Dark, dreamy and passionately glamorous is the perfect way to articulate this beautiful gem of a same sex geometric wedding from the collaboration of planner At Your Door Events and California wedding photographer Kristina Lee Photography. Set at the incredible Ebell of Long Beach, the duo created a glamorous wonderland infused with stately elegance. A rich color palette of dark reds, burgundy, black & gold set the tone while wedding decor in the form of geometric wedding magic took shape. The dessert display showpiece, crafted & designed by Twos A Party, serves as the perfect jump off point, walking us through a wash of patterns and shapes in various forms from the circular gold frame display down to the stunning three tier geometric wedding cake from Rooney Girl Bakeshop. To pick up and pair with the moody drama of their estate courtyard surroundings, the brides were treated to a vintage love seat sweetheart table dressed in vintage plates & chargers. Florist Pixies Petals draped the table in a veiled curtain of lush greens while dotting it with small clusters of floral pops, each showcased in muted gilded vases. With such a gorgeously dramatic surrounding to play in, the last piece to the puzzle was the incredible styling of both the ladies. Playing with light and dark, one wore...

  2. Uniquely Cool Eclectic Chemistry Wedding In San Francisco

    Today's wedding is extra special to me in a way that no other wedding ever could be. First and foremost, its the couple... my little sister and the one who finally stole her heart. Secondly, its their uniquely cool chemistry wedding theme that I had the pleasure of articulating for them in styling and florals. When I look back I realize how much their wedding was a true unintentional fingerprint of just who my sister and I are, two very different people. She, an engineer; myself, creatively minded. When Christy & James got engaged a million ideas started to flow about their wedding. Gatsby Gatsby, Art Deco!! Very quickly after exploring venues they realized that while they loved the idea, it wasn't them. Soon enough they knew the right choice, an organic chemistry wedding nestled into their very own backyard. Immediately following that decision came the science flavored shopping spree of beakers, test tubes, microscopes, vintage chemistry sets (complete with mercury, yes mercury!), pipettes, and so many more delicious items that I will allow you to discover on your own. While those wedding decor elements are amazing as is, Christy & James' have a pension for cool interior decor pieces in the home that we had our eye on. These vintage furniture pieces were immediately liberated from their home...

  4. Late Winter Middleton Place Plantation Engagement Session

    Sweeping plantations are always a big draw when it comes to anything romantic. Plantation weddings, plantation engagement sessions, even the perfect spot for the perfect date. Tennessee wedding photographer Erin Morrison Photography recently journeyed down to the magnificent Middleton Place Plantation for a late winter plantation engagement session that took advantage of the gorgeous rays cast by the raising sun. Starting out on the sprawling lawn of a perfectly southern brick estate, the couple snuggled up as the wind drew gusty breezes off the banks of the Ashley River. Sun flare filled each frame in a delicious way, while the wind made for some wonderfully romantic moments. No trip to a plantation would be complete without heading to the gigantic live oaks, all of which are draped with ever iconic Spanish Moss, a total must for portraits. To inject some true winter vibes into their late winter plantation engagement session, our cozied up couple brought along a uniquely cool oversized winter wedding bouquet from Tennessee florist Lisa Foster Floral Design Studio. To create the winter bouquet, Lisa Foster...
