A little while back now I had the incredible opportunity to visit with the absolutely amazing team that makes up Sandals Resorts, specifically in a few of their Jamaica locations such as Sandals Montego Bay & Sandals South Coast. The purpose of the trip was both to experience the unique opportunities that each and every Sandals guest has available to them, as well as take in their incredibly cool Aisle to Isle destination wedding program. Its true, there are a lot of places one could celebrate their destination wedding. What you really need to do is ask yourself, do they offer you the ability to personalize your wedding in every single aspect, delivering with luxury level design detailing? Do they afford you the ability to just show up, and actually be a guest at your own wedding, versus running around for all those last minute errands and projects like so many do?? With 18 resorts around the Caribbean, there is certainly at least one that will catch your eye, and remember, get married at one, honeymoon at a another!

You're not supposed to have favorites. They say each one should take an equal amount of you're heart. The simple truth is, thats never really the case is it? When Atlanta wedding photographer Christa O'Brien Photography's stunning fine art film noir moody boudoir shoot fell into my lap I felt a sense of connection I don't always feel. Don't get me wrong, I so very much love the various shoots we share, its not always though, they feel completely like... me. If I were to do a boudoir shoot today, I'd be beating down Christa's door... no joke, no fluff, solid truth. There are so many beautiful little things working in harmonious strength within this little moody boudoir that it is extraordinarily hard to deny its success. The location is utterly divine, offering the perfect blend of natural light, with a mood loving interior decor. A bouquet of the drippy hand-tied fashion in dark brooding hues by Beautiful/Wild Design accented with ribbon from The Poetry of Silk floats throughout. Simple, incredibly chic lingerie choices hug in all the right places creating the most enticing blend of reveal meets coy. Then you have Christa's eye coupled with hair & makeup artist Erin Ryser beauty details. Each and every photograph is stand alone stunning...
I'll be the first to admit, I'm floored each and every time I come across a couple who has known one another & dated since childhood. Its such an incredible thing to me, to be seated next to your soulmate from the very start. Grace & Carlo are the sweetest example of just that, love that lasted from a very young age. Meeting all the way back in kindergarten, going on a 'first date' in 8th grade, its fair to say these two evolved through life together in such a beautiful way. For their Winnipeg wedding, the duo opted for the stylish Fort Garry Hotel as their backdrop, allowing their modern romantic day to bloom. Details like suspended geometric shapes, lush dripping greens, a candle light reception and marble accenting might be the elements that catch your eye, its the couple's incredible wedding fashion that does it for us! A Pronovias wedding dress that fits as if it were quite literally made right upon Grace and groom fashion that is right out of GQ, I dare you not to eat up it all up. True there are many things to love about this Winnipeg wedding, it is however the portrait sessions by wedding photographer Sambajoy in the greenhouse that leave us love struck, though, its pretty hard to beat the classroom bridal party sequence! Much love for this incredibly stylish Winnipeg wedding, classic, ever so romantic and all kinds of timeless perfection.
A winter wedding is a unique experience unlike one during any other season. Couples that opt for a cold weather wedding don't just simply identify with the season but utterly adore the little details that go along with it. A team of Oregon wedding pros sought to capture the spirit of a winter wedding, all while putting their cozy chic twist on it. Set in the misty boysenberry fields of Butler Barn, Oregon wedding photographer Hazel Eye Photography was on hand to bring the cold weather vision to life in a perfectly moody way. Teaming up with Peachy Keen Coordination & Thistle and Fern Floral, some of the very best aspects of a winter world were chosen to play with. Imagine a cozy lounge setup, complete with plaid throw blanket, furry winter boots and oversized hot chocolates. A petite evergreen adorned with thinly sliced wood ornaments turned guest book. A personal favorite to the Oregon winter wedding, a stunning white wedding cake featuring a cable knit sweater fondant overlay! To bring the winter bridal look, real flowers and berries were woven into the hair, while a rosebud wrap served as warmth. Lastly, farm elements like an old Ford pickup, boysenberry fields backdrop and a surprise guest in the form of Hei Hei the wonderfully cool Silkie chicken made an appearance bringing everything together. If you're considering a winter wedding yourself I implore you to take this cold temperature beauty as winter inspiration gold!
