In my early childhood years I had the unique privilege of spending a few years on a petite Caribbean island called Montserrat. One of the incredibly cool features to the islands were rich black sand beaches. Ever since then I have always had a sweet spot for these silky smooth oddities! When an Oregon elopement hit my inbox from wedding photographer Blush Creative Photography set on darker sand beaches, I knew I was hooked. The Oregon coastline is a thing of goddess like beauty and the locale of this styled shoot only served to hence the elegant moody affair. A simple sweetheart table with details like seaglass pieces and draped fabric picked up on the natural surroundings. Injecting a touch of color into the neutral surroundings, cool greens, baby blues & pale pinks accented the Oregon elopement. The last piece to the puzzle was a dove grey gown from Joanna August that joyfully danced in the wind. This vision of an Oregon elopement is simple perfection, as an elopement doesn't have to mean something light on style just because there are not a hoard of guests to see it.

Whether you're a fan or not, fall is coming here in the US. With fall's arrival so does the power of golden hour in all its color drenching glory. When three wedding pros from Maryland met up for the first time they knew immediately that they had to create together and create they did! Wedding photographer Manda Weaver Photography headed to the coastal shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club for a swoon-worthy bohemian bridal style inspiration shoot. Florist Amy Nicole Floral took the bohemian bridal spirit to heart, gathering a mix of blooms in an untamed way, true to the bohemian nature. Calligrapher & stationery designer Calligraphette Co crafted a handwritten invitation suite that was gorgeously captured fall romance. The end result is a golden pink kiss of wind swept bay breezed hair with moments plucked straight out of your favorite dream. Fall is here, but can we really be that mad about it if this is how we toy with her??

Having just styled a chemistry wedding myself, my ears perked up a bit extra when this geology wedding hit my inbox! Pretty weddings are pretty, but there really is something to be said for those that have a unique vision and are articulated in such a meaningful and beautiful way! Inspired by the bride who cringes at lace and feels more at home with dirt under her french manicured nails, D.Lillian Photography put together what she calls The Geologist's Guide To Highway 1. The intimate and small setting was crafted with those in mind that love nature. Filled with delightful wedding decor that celebrates a geology wedding, details like a field guide book, camping lanterns, geodes, and potters plates add the perfect touches. In lieu of a traditional dessert display, our bride simply pops open her Outback, showcasing delicious treats upon her textbooks and supplies. The beauty to this geology wedding is that it celebrates something outside the wedding norm, all while proving to be equally as stylish and beautiful.
