There is a certain mystic to Cape Cod weddings. A feel of old world and tradition. Ashleigh Carney & Matthew Carney recently married at the Orleans Inn in Connecticut, playing up bright poppy colors of fuchsia, orange, green & touches of light pink. Opting to stage their ceremony next to a stunning old gray windmill along the bay, Ashleigh & Matthew created a dreamy world for their wedding day. Playing in the sand, posing the beach cruisers, our couple made the most of their Cape Cod wedding!
Rounding out the week, I figured I would end on a place that is calming & serene, like Lake Michigan! This little styled shoot has some great touches that are totally borrow worthy for those considering a seaside inspired theme for their wedding days. Perhaps my favorite touch over all is one well tied together element...Netting! The use of the netting on the table top is fantastic & I complete love the idea of it! Carrying that element on, what you might not realize at first, our bride's birdcage veil...yup thats netting! Fastened with some well placed pearl touches, this takes the idea of a veil and brings it right into the wheel house of the seaside theme. Lastly, the use of twine (like netting!) with seashell touches wrapped around the bouquets brings everything full circle! Have a Fantastic Sea Dreamy Weekend Everyone!!

Sometimes the idea of running off, with a few choice friends mind you, getting married in an exotic location sounds like THE perfect plan! It seems that is exactly what our couple, Whitney Austin & Vaughn Gray had in mind! Soft Latin flares with vibrant pops of intense warm colors create the stage for this destination wedding at Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita in Riviera Maya, Mexico. Whitney's view on her ideal wedding day?

Heading down south, we are treated to the vintage feel wedding of Kelly Foster & Gene Harley. This wedding was truly a family affair with various family members greatly helping out our bride with everything from sourcing (over 3 states!) mix matched china, bottles, & various knickknacks to a hand made scrapbook and my personal favorite, a stunning brooch bouquet made by Kelly's cousin, which by the way, was her first time making one! Kelly offers some wonderful commentary throughout regarding her wedding & a few words of advice for future brides to be!
