There are few things that, from a creative standpoint, get me out of bed in the morning. Rather I should say, there are few things that lock me snuggled into bed as I dreamily glide through each image, entranced by what I see. Moody, earthy artful yumminess is certainly on that short list. When I stumbled upon Australian wedding photographer Ine Ertvaag Photography styled elopement along the Australian coastline, you can best believe I didnt budge one inch out of bed. In fact I snuggled down hard as I walked through each and every frame of the elopement. The brilliance to the way that Ine captured such a simple (lacking in details :0 ) elopement is the very fingerprint to why, if dont value you wedding photography, true good wedding photography, you're a bloody fool. I wasn't there, but you better believe I was standing right next to them as I leafed through the story. I felt my own hair a complete mess, pushed around with reckless abandon by the wind. My eyes ached with each adjustment to the fading light. My own skin felt of the very same goosebumps Ine captured as the tendrils of the Gwendolynne wedding dress beat against her skin. True, honest, & worthy wedding photography is not about being able to look back at images and think to yourself, yup thats is what happened. Its about seeing even a solitary image and feeling as if it comes alive...
What could spell dark romance better than a moody snow filled woodland world as your stage? While a snowy shoot might have been the goal for this styled elopement photographed by wedding photographer Lissables Photography, a dreamy blizzard filled world took hold! Expressing a dark romance feel, everything about this delicious elopement is style driven. Wedding designer A Pretty Styled Life brought the drama in the from of grandeur & sophistication. Working with a dark palette centered around black & gold with deep burgundy accents, wedding decor details were chosen that echoed an artistic mod edge. Uniquely geometrical elements dotted the sweetheart table from spherical treasures to gilded sea urchin like starbursts. Sweet treats in the form of sugar dusted donuts, chocolate dipped red velvet Oreo's and a petite gold wedding cake found the perfect home among the snow dusted surroundings. It is for me however, the gorgeous and perfectly fashion forward bridal look to the elopement that is everything.

If there very idea of a tropical destination wedding leaves you a bit weak in the knees, you're going to love today's feature! If the idea of planning something from far away leaves you apprehensive, you're going to love today's feature even more! What feels like only a few short months ago, brought me to the Bahamas, more specifically to the carefully landscaped and dreamy grounds that is Sandals Royal Bahamian. While we were there to explore, experience and learn about the many unique aspects to a Sandals' vacation, there was one element that stood out above the rest, Sandals very own WeddingMoons. The name alone might sound intuitive, but believe me when I tell you it is something very much more!

Italy is simply one of those places that inspires endless wanderlust dreams. From falling in love to romantic getaways to trips of a lifetime and European weddings, the romantic notion that is Italy is simply everything! Jenna & Cory felt much the same way and saw the perfect opportunity to combine an amazing Italian Tuscan getaway with just a few of their closest into a chic, intimate Florence Italy wedding. The beauty to Jenna & Cory's Tuscan wedding is in the elegance and simplicity. Nestled into Villa Torricella cobble stone courtyard, the couple enlisted the aid of Italian wedding planners Getting Married In Italy to craft the perfect al fresco wedding. Folding wood chairs were adorned with lace ribbons, while potted plants and a stucco archway framed the couple with the most picturesque hillside backdrop. After the ceremony guests joined the couple for a private dinner in a setting that is easily filed under Italy wedding dreams set under an ivy canopy! While the choice wedding details were absolute perfection, it was Jenna & Cory's own wedding style that truly made it everything. From the long sleeve open back lace wedding dress & stunning tassel heels to Cory's trim fit tux, their wedding is the style, sophistication and ease that makes an Italy wedding swell with so much wanderlust!
