Whenever I travel there is a particular place I seek out to visit if they exist in the area, ruins. There is something so incredibly enchanting about them. The mix of man made structure, left undone, overtaken by nature. Over-sized windows that now serve as doorways, a preview into the next landscape that lays just around the corner. I have long since been infatuated with the idea of a ruins wedding. When real bride Lexi, along with wedding photographer Casey Hendrickson Photography, set off for her portrait session, they headed to the dreamy North Carolina hideaway of Old Sheldon Church Ruins. Dripping in southern bride elegance, Lexi's look is one that is perfectly on trend. From a draped & cinched silhouette wedding dress, to the pulled apart braid wrapped around her neck, dotted with baby's breath. The duo took over the ruins around golden hour only to be meet with severe thunderstorms & the threat of tornado. Not ones to back down easily, they instead yielded the inclement weather into artistry, resulting in a wonderfully romantic ruins wedding dream.

From the moment I laid eyes on Caroline Smart & Bob Shaw's Cambridge Massachusetts Harvard wedding, 'Easy Like A Sunday Morning' as been strolling through my head. There is a delicious beauty to Caroline & Bob's approach to their Harvard wedding day, something I would love to see become more of a trend. In lieu of a wedding party and the commotion that comes with surrounding yourself in a room full of people, the couple opted to spend the morning getting ready together. Nestled into the most cozy of garden nook backyards, the couple celebrated their day with a slow & easy breakfast for two, allowing them to put the focus squarely where it should be, on their love and connection. Connecticut wedding photographer Ashley Caroline Photography did a wonderful job of capturing the sweet details of the world around them, telling a story that defines the song track that has been running through my head. With such a sophisticated take on their morning, I expected nothing less from the couple when it came to their wedding style, both in fashion as well as table setting. A playful bold palette of vibrant pink hues...
