Real Wedding: Matt and Tara

Matt and Tara’s wedding is absolutely lovely. I particularly flipped over the centerpieces, which were a charming collection of wood, plants and flowers all bunched together. And don’t get me started on the favors. Swoon! Special special thanks to their amazing photographer Kristin Spencer for sending me these images!

Real Wedding: Amanda and Eric

Amanda and Eric’s wedding was so idyllic and dreamy. The location at the Madison Hotel in Morristown, NJ really takes things to a whole new level. The chandeliers? Excuse me? To die for. And the live band? I heart.

And then of course Elisabeth Millay and Jonathan Young shot the wedding, which means the photos are that much more stunning. I can’t tell you how pleased I am to share this with you.

*Quick DIY note: check out how Amanda incorporated that bright yellow fabric throughout her decor. I can hardly imagine something so modern and fresh is often part of the options for you to choose from at most venues. Consider making your own table runners (much like you see here) in order to incoporate your colors and aesthetic. Runners are SOOO super easy to make and if you get a good deal on fabric, rather affordable. And they make a HUGE impact, as you can see here. Here’s a No Sew Table Runner How To if you’re afraid of the sewing machine.

Engaged: Peter and Kat

Peter and Kat are another couple that has chosen an incredibly creative location for their engagement session. They picked the Cerritos Library,where a myriad of backdrops made for a super fun shoot. See! I’m all about the museum/hotel situation for these types of things.

Special thanks to the UNBELIEVABLY fabulous photographer Shannon Leith for sending these over. She did such a great job making the library seem that much cooler.

Real Wedding: Paul and Cassie

I don’t know what it is about Jonas Peterson, but he always seems to shoot AMAZING weddings. And Paul and Cassie’s nuptials are no exception. This wedding has such a vintage handmade feel to it…yet the simplicity and clean aesthetic is completely modern. It’s altogether lovely!

I’ve included all of Cassie’s sources for vendors and decor at the end of the, which is ever so helpful! I always love to know where crafty brides discover all of their delightful finds.

Engaged: Michelle and Jeff

I am SO down with engagement shoots that take place in modern perfection settings. If you are racking your brain for a creative space, choosing a hotel or museum might be a fun alternative. Michelle and Jeff chose Viceroy and The Huntley Hotel. Of course it doesn’t hurt that Bonnie Tsang is such a fabulous photographer!

Engaged: Angela and Evan

Trying to think of creative locations for your engagement session? Why not consider the most personal of all options…your own house! That’s what Angela and Evan did and I think their photos turned out famously. Of course it certainly helps that a) their photographer Amelia Soper of The Sope Box did such a great job and b) their house is SUPER cute.

Enjoy!

Real Wedding: Janet and David

This wedding has an ultra vintage vibe and I just had to share a few of the photos by Aisha Harley. I think these images illustrate how important it is to consider the style and tone of your wedding, and how important it is to match that with your photographer’s style and tone.  Aisha’s style has this sort of vintage look, which worked perfectly with Janet and David’s wedding.

I know it can be hard to wade through oodles of recommendations, listings, blogs and referrals in search for the right photographer. There are SO many great ones out there. How does one decide? Well, besides price point, availability and finding the right click, also consider their style and whether or not that will enhance the direction you’re already heading.

Enough with the talk; on with the photos!

Engagement Shoot: Jay and Carrie

Love love LOVE this engagement shoot. If you have a thing for modern interiors, you’ll never find a better location than the rooftop of the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. How rad was Jay and Carrie’s idea, not only to shoot it here, but to shoot it at sunrise? Swoon. Special thanks to Jessica Claire for letting me share her amazing photos with you!

Engagement: Caroline and Travis

I’ve got a secret wedding fantasty that involves getting married in an orchard of cherry trees during the spring. Can you imagine? Being surrounded by trees covered in romantic spring blooms? Swoon! Well, Caroline and Travis’s engagement session by W. Scott Chester comes pretty close. I LOVE these images!!!

Oh yeah…and I’m pretty sure that’s them on a billboard. So cute!
