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!)

Every year, for the past three years, on this same date, I always have the same issue when it comes to a feature..... I really should finally share my own wedding, it is our anniversary after all! Every year its the same thing, I keep the date open, I dont schedule anything, promise myself that I will whittle down the 300+ images that I swear are important to the feature, aka to me, and every year, I cant and then have to scramble last minute for something else. I woke up this morning and well here I am again, what to do.... finally I thought, enough is enough, I am going to share some of it, but more importantly share some funny tidbits that go along with our day intermixed with the images. We were really blessed in the weather department, with Hurricane Irene making its way up the coast, it literally arrived to us around 2am or on our wedding night. Its funny to look back at our wedding, the details, the decor.....

A lovely ceremony spot of a find in the form of a private home from the early 1900's. A whimsical pop up tent to carry the guest through the celebration. This classic New London, Connecticut wedding from Robyn Blasi Photography, hits some New England wedding high notes with its traditional touches and cape like feel. Gentle details in navy & yellow bring to life this late spring wedding, which even was meet with some April showers, not stopping the celebration in any way! Classic & simply lovely, this Connecticut wedding is a upstate little dream!

I love when the opportunity comes my way to put a spotlight on weddings from around the world, each celebrated in their own unique fashion. Such is the case with today’s wonderful wedding from Hong Kong wedding photographer Sophia Kwan Photography showcasing a mix of old world traditions with a dash of something new. Joe & Billy started their day off honoring the ways of Chinese culture by sharing tea ceremonies with close family and friends travelling from place to place. Joe took things one step further, donning a stunning vintage look which featured a gorgeous traditional gown complete with a knot pinned up do finished with fresh flowers. After the traditional aspects of the day were over, Joe switched to a lovely lace long sleeved wedding dress for their ceremony/reception at Club One which was set against the most amazing wall of mixed greens. To finish the look of the room, birdcages & chandeliers of crystal were accented throughout, giving the most divine of secret garden feeling! The unique blend of something so old and traditional mixed with that which is more modern makes for a beautiful sneak peek into a whole other world!
