Real Wedding: Melissa and Ryan

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!

Real Wedding: Kelly and Michael

Kelly and Michael’s wedding shot by Desi Bayton is so unique and refreshing! Desi has some really beautiful imagery…I’m loving the old world feel, and I ADORE the Fitzgerald-esque tux that Michael is wearing. I also don’t normally post lots of images of ceremonies, but I couldn’t help sharing these…I just love all the gorgeous tradition involved in Michael and Kelly’s wedding. So lovely!

I know there are lots of you out there desperate to see ballroom weddings…and I think this one is exemplary! Thanks again to Desi for sending it over!

Real Wedding: Johanna and Charles

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.

Real Wedding: Jen and Toffy in Mammoth

It’s rather unusual that I get a chance to see a beautiful mountain wedding, so it’s always exciting when one pops up in the inbox. Jen and Toffy’s wedding, shot by Floataway Studio, has a really unassuming, simplicity to it. The scenery at Parallax Restaurant at McCoy Station on Mammoth Mountain naturally lends itself to a rustic sensibility.

Here’s a little info about the wedding from the bride:

We did almost everything ourselves, from the welcome bags to the wood veneer programs, song books, invitations, Save the Dates, rehearsal dinner invitations, etc.  We also decorated the church and reception sites ourselves the day before and the morning of the wedding.My friend Danny made the toffee favors from scratch, and Toffy’s parents donated all the brownies in the welcome bags and at the reception hot cocoa station from their bakery Sugar House in the Philippines. All the vintage books were discards from my high school library. The birch accents were collected by my dad in Ohio and flown out along with all the mason jars and vintage/antique bottles on the reception tables.

Real Wedding: Rachel and Noah

Rachel and Noah’s sweet vintage inspired wedding was shot by Sarah Shreves, and I’m really really loving the rustic vibe. Their location, Bernardo Winery in San Diego, really goes to show what a difference a great location can make! If you find just the right spot, what’s already on location can hopefully add to the look and feel of the day, without any extra costs for decor!

Real Wedding: Alicia and Mark

I don’t think it’s possible for the Marvimon House to produce an ugly wedding. I think it’s a conspiracy of some sort. While I work on figuring out the conspiracy, take a look at these beautiful details sent over by Annie McElwain. If I’m not mistaken, Annie’s work was recently featured in Real Simple Weddings Magazine (on newsstands now!), so be sure to check her out!

Real Wedding: Jenny and Jeff

Love all the quirky details from Jenny and Jeff’s wedding, which was sent to me by Choco Studio. I particularly adore the succulent centerpieces, which are SOOO DIY friendly. They last forever and look so great stuffed in all sorts of unique little containers. I hope you enjoy! Happy Tuesday!
