Not everyone craves a cookie cutter wedding, nor should they. The stylish fashion forward bride is probably my absolute favorite. Color, is nothing to her but a vehicle for style. Black, white, fuchsia, they are all equal, what matters is how evocative one feels over another given its overall design. For those leaning toward a more moody & mysterious wedding style, something like this Gothic chic Utah wedding hits on all the right levels. With a hearty focus on wedding fashion, this sophisticated formal exudes atmospheric perfection. All starting with a black wedding dress from Bling It On Dress Rentals, details like sheer long sleeves accented by hand beaded detailing and a cafe au lait underlay are the touches that elevate & add intrigue. Dialing up the brooding romance allure, a bridal up-do just the right balance of undone polish, plays a heavy hand into the romance factor. The rest of this dark & dreamy Utah wedding is the sweeping landscapes that is Antelope Island, captured with beauty by wedding photographer Ashley Smith Photography.
Whether you're a fan or not, fall is coming here in the US. With fall's arrival so does the power of golden hour in all its color drenching glory. When three wedding pros from Maryland met up for the first time they knew immediately that they had to create together and create they did! Wedding photographer Manda Weaver Photography headed to the coastal shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club for a swoon-worthy bohemian bridal style inspiration shoot. Florist Amy Nicole Floral took the bohemian bridal spirit to heart, gathering a mix of blooms in an untamed way, true to the bohemian nature. Calligrapher & stationery designer Calligraphette Co crafted a handwritten invitation suite that was gorgeously captured fall romance. The end result is a golden pink kiss of wind swept bay breezed hair with moments plucked straight out of your favorite dream. Fall is here, but can we really be that mad about it if this is how we toy with her??

Having just styled a chemistry wedding myself, my ears perked up a bit extra when this geology wedding hit my inbox! Pretty weddings are pretty, but there really is something to be said for those that have a unique vision and are articulated in such a meaningful and beautiful way! Inspired by the bride who cringes at lace and feels more at home with dirt under her french manicured nails, D.Lillian Photography put together what she calls The Geologist's Guide To Highway 1. The intimate and small setting was crafted with those in mind that love nature. Filled with delightful wedding decor that celebrates a geology wedding, details like a field guide book, camping lanterns, geodes, and potters plates add the perfect touches. In lieu of a traditional dessert display, our bride simply pops open her Outback, showcasing delicious treats upon her textbooks and supplies. The beauty to this geology wedding is that it celebrates something outside the wedding norm, all while proving to be equally as stylish and beautiful.

Early spring is a truly fun time to head to the woods. Life is still pretty quiet and the temperature is almost utter perfection for snuggling! Molly & Matt teamed up with Wisconsin wedding photographer McNiel Photography to head out to the Ice Age National Scenic Trail for a woods engagement session. After something a bit more fun & unique then a simple forest session, the couple enlisted KP Designs to create a swoony enchanted camping world for them to play in! With a few choice vintage decor pieces in place such as book planters, an old radio and retro tins made into planters, the scene was set. Literary touches were a gorgeous underlying theme to their wood engagement session inspired by something Matt's grandparents used to say. Matt's grandpa met his grandmother when he was in Ireland during World War II, and soon after brought her to the US as his bride. They always called each other their "everlovin'" as it was apparently an Irish term. Before Matt's Grandma passed away, she made a point to tell them that she knew they were each other's Everlovin'. Ever since it has stuck for them, and serves as the perfect touch to tie their woods engagement session together!
