If you know anything about me, you know that I love taking something that is so clearly one style and dialing it up to perfection with the introduction of another. Today's dreamy woodland wedding is exactly that! What would normally be described as rustic, with the introduction of wind blown draping, free flowing florals, crystal & metallic accents, becomes the perfect romantic woodland wedding. With a pulse on glam, a dash of vintage, it proves that a setting is only the starting point to any vision! The team of wedding designer Marcella Camille Events along with florist Tumbleweed Floral Truck used a mix of decor pieces from Pleasanton Rentals, Joe Squared, and Gussy Up Décor to craft a sweetheart table for two under majestic redwood and oak trees along with the perfect wood gazebo lounge draped in sheer paneling & chandeliers from Chair Divas. Injecting a more masculine color palette in shades of ivory, green and orangey-reds, the team was able to make the woodland wedding accessible to all, striking the perfect balance. This woodland wedding is just further proof that no matter the locale, all it takes is a little vision!

One of my favorite pieces to weddings is the gobsmackingly beautiful bridal fashion. From modern to classic to gorgeously glam bridal style, there are so many brilliant ways to go! Philippine wedding photographer Jessie Villegas of Capturing Smiles Photography recently teamed up with a few other amazing local vendors to craft 4 wonderfully romantic glam bridal looks that show, with just the right touches, how utterly stunning and perfectly glam one can become! Whether is loosely curled flowing locks or hair that is sleeked back with a bold lip and smoldering eye by the beauty team of Len-Len Anaya and Kevin Abdala, each look has its own personality! While beauty is every bit the show stopper, let's be honest, its the gowns that command the glam bridal style! Each dress, whether lace applique or flowing tulle, came from FIONA CLARA by Alma Mae Roa, offering up a delicious buffet for the eyes to work with! While we play no favorites, there is certainly no shortage of glam bridal style to inspire today!

Everyone's definition of a romantic setting varies slightly, but my word it is hard to argue with a gorgeous industrial loft setting like the one at Seattle's own Axis Pioneer Square! Spearheaded by the owner of Seattle's new specialty rental company Fanciful Rentals, a romantic candle lite loft wedding was crafted featuring a mix of antique furniture and decor. Working with a strong wedding color palette of blush, red & ivory, vintage blue floral china and a steel grey linen were choosen as the perfect counterbalance to soften. Playing off the blue floral found in the table setting, a highlight to the loft wedding design was a light beige love seat lounge accented by 2 gorgeous stately toile pillows! As if details like taper candles and vintage champagne flutes filled with rose champagne weren't enough, the team really embodied romance for this styled loft wedding utilizing a lace top BHLDN wedding dress and understated accessories. The last piece to the puzzle, tying the loft wedding together, were the bold florals from Verde & Co. that were equal parts fresh and modern. The beauty to a loft wedding is how the space can transform into just about anything you dream up. Easily one of the most versatile locales, its no wonder that these urban wedding venues are such a prize!

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!
