When I first saw this wedding submission, it was the church that truly caught my attention. Perhaps one of the more structurally lovely & stain-glass adorned churches I have seen. Once I got passed the church I realized that today's feature couple, Melanie Siu-shan Hui & Lawrence Santiago Lipana are absolutely captivating & I am in love with their spirit. Just from viewing their wedding photos, I can tell that these two love life, love laughing & even more so, enjoying life with their friends and each other. The wedding is a gorgeous affair of course, but its the moments they share with each other, family & friends through out, that truly make this wedding so wonderful!
Smaller, more intimate weddings can be unbelievably lovely! For a lot of couples, there isnt always a need to have a ton of people around, just a few select guest is all you need and that is exactly what Jennifer Maddock & Carl Copley did for their Italian wedding! Taking a cue from the 60's, bridesmaids were styled in modern beehives, dressed in lovely pale blues. Our bride has such a grand infectious smile and a laugh you can almost hear through the photos. Perhaps my personal favorite part of this wedding is choice of transportation!

There is a lot to love about today's styled inspiration shoot. From an aesthetic stand point, the styling is right in my personal wheel house. I love everything about dragging furniture outdoors as there is just something that seems so against the grain awesome about it. I utterly adore the use of old storm windows gently hung from swaying tree branches, drinking jars adorned with simple lace bows, earthy lush rows of moss and so incredibly much more. However what is probably my favorite part of this whole shoot is whom the models are! Alexia Wardell Photography fall into a super cute, creative idea that is pure genius!

"Lover of all things vintage and chic, I let our vintage plates take center stage in this photo shoot. With mismatched vintage plates coming from our very own collection I began building a table that couples could fall in love with. The details really make this table work, and while they’re simple I think they really make a powerful statement. Hints of lace, satin, a mish-mash of patterns, fabrics, frames and the hardware gave the table an unexpected elegance and help to pull together a look that any bride could duplicate."
