This sweet little Austin wedding might be light on a bevvy of wedding detailing, but it more than makes up for it in charm! Amanda & Andre went back to Amanda's Texas roots when it came time to plan their wedding from abroad. Andre, being from Switzerland, followed her lead, creating the most perfect Austin wedding nestled in at Barr Mansion. This Austin wedding venue is a dreamy locale from its white washed estate home to the enduring little white chapel in the back. The couple choose to only add only small touches here and there to keep the beauty of the property the star. Stems Floral did a terrific job crafting understated arrangements that were just the right touch, in a wash of pinks & orange accented by navy. My favorite piece to the day however is Amanda's magnetic smile and a laugh that seems to translate through images, something I am betting is part of what made Andre fall in love with her! Texas wedding photographer Photo by Betsy did a beautiful job capturing each sweet moment in moody gorgeousness and I just know you'll fall for this sweet little Austin wedding!
Today's wedding is extra special to me in a way that no other wedding ever could be. First and foremost, its the couple... my little sister and the one who finally stole her heart. Secondly, its their uniquely cool chemistry wedding theme that I had the pleasure of articulating for them in styling and florals. When I look back I realize how much their wedding was a true unintentional fingerprint of just who my sister and I are, two very different people. She, an engineer; myself, creatively minded. When Christy & James got engaged a million ideas started to flow about their wedding. Gatsby Gatsby, Art Deco!! Very quickly after exploring venues they realized that while they loved the idea, it wasn't them. Soon enough they knew the right choice, an organic chemistry wedding nestled into their very own backyard. Immediately following that decision came the science flavored shopping spree of beakers, test tubes, microscopes, vintage chemistry sets (complete with mercury, yes mercury!), pipettes, and so many more delicious items that I will allow you to discover on your own. While those wedding decor elements are amazing as is, Christy & James' have a pension for cool interior decor pieces in the home that we had our eye on. These vintage furniture pieces were immediately liberated from their home...

If you think your one year anniversary shouldn't be something to truly celebrate, today's unbelievably sweet loft wedding anniversary session will make you a believer! California wedding photographer Peterson Design & Photography went to task creating a unique little world for Marissa and Nathan to celebrate in at Pomona's The Loft on 2nd, with many of the details crafted by her own hand! The Loft on 2nd, an urban loft wedding venue that is flooded with light and filled with vintage furniture pieces, was a gorgeous backdrop, helping to direct the vintage wedding decor. Paper elements like tassel garlands & origami hearts paid perfect homage to the one year wedding anniversary gift of paper, while details like gold rim champagne flutes & wooden derived florals supplied the spunk! While the scene at this one year anniversary come styled loft wedding was quirky perfection, it was Marissa & Nathan's uncontainable sweetness that put it over the top! Perhaps this little gem will have your wheels turning when your own anniversary comes rolling around!

Today's wedding has a special place in my heart. Not all weddings are family affairs... this one is deeply rooted in family dynamic. Some weddings tend to take themselves far too seriously, not truly allowing for the couple's personality to ever shine through. This one is all personality, all style, all kinds of incredibly cool every step along the way. Lastly, not all weddings are photographed as stories, this one is, and you know I love a good story! When a preview peek of this wedding popped up from my dear friend's feed California wedding photographer Chris Wodjak Photography, I think I sent her an IM in under 10 seconds to begin the begging process! Lucky for me, the twinkle in my eyes must have been just right and this little beauty came my way. I hinted earlier on about the style behind this backyard wedding, but you really have no idea. From just wedding decor alone there is so so very much to love. From macrame backdrops, dream catchers swaying in the wind, airplants and oversized succulents dotting well just about everything, its a truly playful styling dream wonderfully articulated by southern California florist The Bloomin Gypsy...
