1. North Carolina Mountain Wedding At Claxton Farm

    Katie Garrity & Ben Hulkower first met along their respective medical journeys thanks to a chance NYE encounter, only to fall in love for good, moving all along the country to strengthen their bond. Now resting in North Carolina, Katie & Ben opted to share their love for the gently rolling mountains with friends & family, at Claxton Farm, a place where the world could be seen 360 degrees. A natural rustic vibe was lent to the day, from farming details to homespun touches that were truly personal and close to the heart from both the couple's grandparents. An electric palette of bold blue and orange was injected throughout, creating an energy and buzz. Soaking in that true southern laissez faire attitude, guests were invited to sip on craft beers while playing lawn games, taking in the views around them.

  2. Late Fall Rustic Wedding At L’abri at Linwood North Carolina

    Let's face it, the one thing above all that most couples fear leading up to their wedding day is weather. Utterly out of our control, weather is that one thing we feel could break us. The reality is, it often presents us with a gorgeous perspective we were too distracted with the outside world to see. Such is the case with Ashtyn & Carlton's late fall rustic wedding at L'Abri at Linwood. Like so very many couples that came before them, the original plan was to say I do a la nature under the hand crafted arbor built by Ashtyn's father specially for their day. As luck would have it weather moved in before the ceremony could get under way, forcing a venue change of indoor barn nuptials instead. The result is an airy, light filled wooden world that became the perfect locale for such a lovely totem to the day which was beautifully accented by lush fall flavored blooms from The Pink Peony.

  3. Vintage Industrial Old Mill Wedding At Slater Mill Rhode Island

    Well one things is for absolute certain.... I am now utterly dying now at the thought of a real mill wedding in an old mill! Thanks to Sara Smile Photography and her wonderfully romantic styled session at Slater Mill in Rhode Island, my creative juices are running wild! Slater Mill is a gorgeously restored water powered textile mill which produced cotton yarn from 1793 to 1829, which still houses a lot of the original detailing and trinkets. Naturally a few of these vintage trinkets {and their surroundings} found their way into the decor, but perhaps the best nod to this mill wedding is the cotton infused wedding bouquet in the most delicious of autumn hues. I have a pension for rustic industrial interior design and when I saw a lovely styled shoot like this carried out in such a setting, well, lets just say, get your pining fingers ready! Romantic, swoony and wonderfully understated in just the right ways, this mix of real world come old, is a blend that is sure fire wedding heaven.

  4. Rustic Neon Vineyard Inspired Sun Valley Idaho Wedding

    Our wedding would be considered rustic, shabby chic, whimsical, colorful, romantic, and personal. Most of the flowers we used were whimsy colorful wildflowers. The location had a lot of character. We got married outside on the property of a private residence. There was an old covered wagon on the property as well as a rustic wooden horse wagon. We had antique wagon wheel chandeliers in our reception tent. All of my bridesmaids each wore a different shade of coral from dark to light to create an ombre effect. We had a unity tree ceremony. We had lawn games during cocktail hour (custom made bean bag toss and ladder ball). Our wedding reception dinner was served family style with a salad, a chicken pasta, and fresh wood fired pizzas served tableside. We had different flavored cupcakes and cake pops for dessert all served from birch wood platters. There were lots of candles and lanterns to provide romantic lighting. Our transportation for our guests was yellow school buses (because I'm a teacher!)
