1. Private Residence Hudson Valley Backyard Wedding

    “The whole wedding managed to feel at once like the greatest, most important party we had ever been to and just another summer barbecue with our family and best friends.” This incredibly wonderful statement struck me with such truism when I read the start of what Alexa had to say. To be able to slow the day down, take in each special moment, and be able to revel in it is the true beauty behind the wedding day. Alexa and Jon's private residence Hudson Valley backyard wedding is one filled of sentimental detailing. Married at Alexa's family home, the couple shared their I do's in a truly special place, in front of a tiny chapel her great-grandfather built for his wife in the woods behind their home. Flower arrangements included pink and white peonies from Alexa’s father’s garden, which her mother hand picked the month prior, wrapping in newspaper and storing in a refrigerator until a week before the wedding! Escort cards were equally sentimental, a collection of flat stones from around the couple's favorite beaches on Block Island, where Jon proposed to Alexa, with guests’ names painted on them. Guests of the backyard wedding were treated to a raw bar, a roast pig and New Zealand lamb, which was a nod to the groom’s Kiwi heritage. Even Alexa's approach to her wedding dress...

  2. New Frontier Ranch Wedding With Chic Romantic Detailing

    Wrapped up in nature is perhaps one of the more serene and lovely places to host an affair.  Through the natural landscape, with soft breezes blowing, there is a certain allure that is hard to beat.  When it comes to a ranch wedding, a vast locale like the New Frontier Ranch is something that Bre and Adam knew would make their day.  The beauty to Bre and Adam's wedding is how eloquently they dialed up the elegant romance factor.  Wedding details like a chandelier swaying ceremony backdrop wrapped in blooms and a barn filled of white, are just a few of the details that make this ranch wedding.  Bringing it all home is Bre's crush worthy style, featuring a body hugging low back wedding dress, topped with a multi-layer statement necklace that is all kinds of amazing.  While the ranch wedding as a whole is a treat, its the special little guest star that makes us giggle with delight!  For those seeking a more country affair, we think you'll want to take notes!

  3. Sophisticated Vintage Chicago Wedding at University of Chicago’s Bond Chapel

    When I first saw Cassie & Stefan's utterly stunning Chicago wedding I completely thought it was a styled shoot.  I was beyond floored when I realized it wasn't indeed the handy work of a team of inspired creatives, but instead, one ultra stylish couple that simply oozes chic vintage perfection!  Set at the iconic University of Chicago's Bond Chapel, this Chicago wedding is all about class and elegance.  As if ripped from the pages of Vogue itself, Cassie's Rime Arodaky wedding gown lays the most gorgeous of ground work for her sophisticated vintage wedding style.  Driving the look home, she opted for a retro updo, enhancing the throw back feel, perfectly accented by a floral applique veil, also from Rime Arodaky.  Keeping the vintage Chicago wedding vibe going, Cassie's dad handcrafted a unique parlor style backdrop to their sweetheart table, turning the event space at Prairie Productions into a whole new world.  From there mauve velvet tablecloths were draped over tables, while lush garlands of green topped with a mix of berry hued blooms...

  4. Edgy Bohemian Bride Style In Unique Locale

    Today's gorgeous bridal inspiration is fun for a few reasons!  For starters, the locale.  I am sure by now you have seen various takes on the ugly location challenge, today's styled shoot however, takes it to a whole new level of astonishing.  Like a page right out of the chic bohemian bride manual, we find a long tressed beauty who ever so elegantly turns the world of a parking garage into her own private oasis.  Featuring a combination of a few bohemian bride looks, the tying theme to each is lace detailing allowing the hair to run free.  This shoot alone should serve as a beacon to ever real couple, to every photographer, that says they simply didnt have anywhere good enough to take amazing portraits.  I very much disagree with that sentiment and I think you'll see why...
