Photographer Tyler Branch sent over this lovely wedding and I’m delighted to share it with you. Two of my favorite things about Inga and Scott’s wedding: Wayfarer’s Chapel. It really is just so breathtaking. And Inga’s bouquet. I’m just a sucker for beautiful flowers. Special thanks to Tyler for sharing some of the stunning simplicity of their day!

Eric and Lina are an internationally diverse couple. While Eric is from the U.S., Lina hails from Denmark. One of the interesting things about planning their wedding were the American traditions, says Lena:
Bridesmaids aren’t a Danish tradition in weddings, but Eric explained the meaning behind it, and it was fun to choose special people in my life to share in the day. Nana, my sister, insisted on being called the ‘best girl’ after she heard the guy version is called ‘best man’-maid of honor didn’t cut it for her. It was really special to me that I could honor my cousins who traveled a long distance to come to my wedding in California.
One of my other favorite parts of their wedding were crepes made to order by Crepes Bonaparte. LOVE IT! Special thanks to T&H Photography for sharing their work! As always, they’ve taken gorgeous photos!

Photographer Kristen Leigh’s work is always always impeccable. Pretty much everything she shoots is an editor’s dream. Melissa and Ryan’s wedding is no exception. Their location, Strong Mansion, in Maryland, is unreal. I mean…it looks like a scene out of Pride and Prejudice. I really mean it! And all that bright color is just too good to be true!
Oh…and you may remember Melissa and Ryan’s engagement session, which I also featured here. I LOVE when I get to feature both the engagement and the wedding…it makes my selfish heart really happy. Special thanks to Kristen for sharing her insanely lovely images!

Aubrey Atlas of the uber fabulous stationery team Atlas & Campbell recently wed her dapper beau, Nick, in a wedding that is just absolutely stunning. Of course, you can’t expect any less from a vendor in the industry…especially when it’s someone as crazy talented as Aubrey! Her wedding (along with a really great description and ALL the vendor details) was featured on Style Me Pretty, but I couldn’t resist sharing a few extra photos that weren’t featured. To see more, be sure to check out the SMP feature…it’s totally worth the click!!!
Abby Ross took these GORGEOUS images…so get ready to eat your heart out!

Nate and Alex were married at Bee Tree Park in St. Louis, Missouri and hosted a reception at Cliff Cave Park. Their wedding featured a number of simple handmade details that I know you’ll love. I particularly adore the embroidery. Oh how I love embroidery. Special thanks to Erica Turner for sending over such beautiful images!

This destination wedding takes place at the Korakia Pensione in Palm Springs, California. The Moroccan inspired resort set the tone for the entire wedding, and photographer Caroline Tran captured such incredible imagery, I feel honored to share it with you today.
Some guests woke up early to enjoy yoga in the courtyard…
An outdoor cafe served breakfast to guests as they woke up…
While the bride spent the day getting ready, one of her friends baked the wedding cake. Wine and baking? What a lovely way to spend an afternoon.
Here’s the brooch that the bride put on the back of her dress…I adore this sweet and personal detail!
Caroline explains, “It was an intimate ceremony. 40 of their closest friends and family surrounded them in a circle as they exchanged vows.”
The wedding cake is topped by polaroids of the bride and groom taken earlier in the day.
I love the beautiful food stations with a Moroccan flare, provided by caterer Piero’s Acqua Pazza.

Photographer Shannen Norman sent over these pictures from Candice and Geoff’s wedding and I’m so thrilled. Sometimes, couples are so dang adorable, I can’t help but share their wedding. Candice’s short dress is so chic, and I absolutely adore the long ribbon trailing from her bouquet. I also love how creative the ceremony area is, with a bevy of ribbons adorning the sky. Oh…and letting your bridesmaids pick their own dress? Honestly…BEST thing ever. Bravo to wedding coordinator Amanda from In The Now Weddings and Events for helping design such a lovely wedding.
