Abby and Sid’s wedding designed by Bella Signature Design is bright, cheery, colorful and altogether lovely. These nuptials took place on Bainbridge Island, Washington, which faces Seattle. (Does it get any more beautiful?). Special thanks to Bradley Hanson for capturing such a gorgeous wedding and allowing me to share it with you!

Yeah…not sure what to call this…all I know is I love it! This rule-breaking bride and groom, Sarah and Jacob, decided to do a pre-wedding photo shoot. I absolutely love how gorgeous these came out. When you have a full day rather than 27.2 minutes to shoot all of your photos, it makes it that much easier to capture tons of wonderful shots. Of course Courtney Brooke did such a RAD job…you just can’t lose.
So, for those of you who don’t mind that your groom gets a little sneak peak, you might want to consider a practice run with your man. Now onto the STUNNING images…
While I work feverishly on putting together a collection of my favorite photos from last week’s shoot, I’m starting this week off with a Napa appetizer. Well, an appetizer for me anyway. I get to head up to wine country next week to attend a wedding and I absolutely can’t wait!
Elizabeth and Darren’s gorgeous Napa wedding was sent to me by Jessamyn Harris. I’ve been so excited to be able to share it with you… I’m getting in the mood for vineyards, wine and stunning scenery! Elizabeth did all the planning herself, so DIY brides, be encouraged! You can do it!
I’m making up my absence to you with an extra special weekend post!
Jessica and Ryan got married at the top of Mount Holyoke (Massachusetts) in an intimate morning ceremony in the mist (you just can’t plan mist, can you? SO wish you could!). Jessica incorporated a number of thoughtful DIY details in their wedding and even provided polaroid and holga cameras for their guests to use. Their reception was held at the Montague Bookmill, and afterward, the couple went for a romp in a pumpkin patch with their dog. Elisabeth Millay took the incredible photos of this gorgeous wedding and I’m so unbelievably thankful she’s shared them with me…and you!
I love that this couple hired their photographer, JB Reed, to shoot not only the wedding, but also the two days of fun prior to the big event. Here are a few snapshots of each. And please note how much I LOVE this location. GORGEOUS! I’m getting into my Autumn mode, and when I do, it’s all about cozy images of mountains, boots, jackets, blankets, muffins, soup and coffee. And cuddling. Mmmmm the fall. So now I think I want my wedding in Crest Butte, Colorado…
How cute is her getaway dress? Ruffles. You know me and ruffles.
Oh how I love The Flash Dance. Michael just sent over a video for me to share with you all that I really love. Not only is the song absolutely perfect, but I love how you can see the entire wedding, toasts and all, in one and a half minutes of cute. Just utter cute. I’d like one of these for my own wedding. Wouldn’t you?
Here’s Michael’s breakdown of the wedding:
Tai & Mia had a beautiful outdoor wedding out at Tierra Rejada Ranch. The weather was perfect and their friends and family were really into dancing their faces off! Well I obliged…I gave them everything from Prince blended with Daft Punk, through Lynyrd Skynyrd blended with Eric B & Rakim! It was so good to see the older guests dancing along side their friends and even a few children… Really was quite a party.
The Jessica Claire Workshop is coming up in just one week. I can’t even begin to tell you how hard we’ve been working on making the event ever so fabulous and fun. I wanted to share a little sneak peek with you today. MaeMae Paperie designed our invitation suite and I just love what Megan come up with. Here are just a few teasers…
Why are you still in business? Everyone hates you.
Grey Likes Weddings is still here. I promise. This is the longest I’ve ever been away, and I promise that the only reason is because of Time Warner Cable’s FABULOUS (note: sarcastic/irate tone) service. I actually googled “I Hate Time Warner Cable” and found over 600,000 results. (Note my favorite article about hating Time Warner Cable). I suppose I’m not the only one then.
Posts coming forthwith. Satisfaction Guaranteed!
Umm…excuse me? I can’t even handle this rehearsal dinner. Not only is it overlooking one of the best views in New York City (FAVORITE CITY. EVER.) it also boasts absolutely stunning decor not to mention a totally adorable couple. Tears of jealousy threaten to sting my eyes. Please make it stop. Get me a plane ticket. Stat.
