To hear of love at first sight and truly believe in its existence is a rarity. To view it as a third party voyeur like myself and know within one look that its real is simply captivating. The moment Noemi & Patrick's garden wedding came my way from Canadian wedding photographer Sonia Bourdon Photographe, I knew there was something extra special about it. When I later read of how it was love at first, I realized that it all made sense! While their personal beauty is surely easy on the eyes, its the emotions between the two that is hard to deny. It should be no surprise that their wedding day was a chic celebration of their romance, in a way that is truly befitting. With a slightly rustic hand, details were put together that crafted an elevated homespun feel. Heavy mophead hydrangea blooms lined the aisle while thick cut slices of natural wood elevate ball jars & flickering candles. Their ceremony was nestled in the trees adjacent to the reception, creating a gorgeously understand garden wedding. Simple details, done with a masterful hand, created the perfect environment at Montreal's Pavillon de la Jamaique, and now I know, love at first site is indeed, real.

I have a fairly deep soft spot for the south, swear I was a southern gal in a former life, with an even deeper soft spot for the lowcountry, Charleston type areas to be specific. I am not sure why but Charleston weddings seem to keep finding me and I could not be more thrilled to continue to share them. They are romantically delicious from a locale standpoint but also the beauty & elegance of the people that embrace it are utterly enchanting. Southerners themselves, Lauren & James wanted to capitalize on their College of Charleston romance, getting married in old village of Mt. Pleasant hosting a beauty of a lowcountry wedding. With the gracious aid & artistic styling of mother of the groom, wedding planner Cricket Newman Designs, the couple took the beauty around them as inspiration. From bridesmaid dresses that echoed the Spanish mass swinging from oak trees to a soft color palette that intermixed with elegant blooms & fine china details, the day had all the polish you'd expect from a southern lowcountry wedding.

When you think Old Hollywood your mind travels to a time of refinement and sophistication, where glitz & glam take center stage. Having dreamt for sometime about the idea of a gorgeous styled shoot with Old Hollywood serving as the inspiration, Colorado wedding photographer Jessi Dalton Photography pulled together a dynamic crew of vendors to craft a gorgeous estate wedding at Colorado's Highlands Ranch Mansion. An iconic palette of black & white took shape in every detail from the ghost chair sweetheart table for two to the art deco wedding cake perfectly accented by black diamond like detailing & jewels. To bring a true old world feel to life, real life couple Cristine & Cory embodied the modern Old Hollywood couple, even donning red carpet ready full arm gloves & stealing away in a vintage car. The beauty to this styled estate wedding is the nod to the swank of ole married with details & glam of the present.
It all starts with a simple, beautiful detail from which the wedding beauty grows. Pomegranates have seen a unique rebirth these days, transcending pop culture, into cult favorite landing as a mainstream must have. While the juice is intriguingly dark, its the fresh pomegranate itself that we cant get enough of when it comes to styling. Its modeled skin in a beautiful berry tone, its organic and captivating fleshy inside cavities filled with self contained juicy bursts of a ruby hue, these are the types of elements that can easily inspire a wedding. Sasha & Kenny found this coveted fruit as the perfect jump off point for their Snug Harbor botanical garden wedding, photographed by New York wedding photographer Melissa Kruse Photography. Taking a cue from the pomegranate's organic and unpredictable interior design, Sasha found a stunning wedding dress from The Cotton Bride that almost quite literally floated on air in the most enchanting of ways. The rest was in the details...
