Fun in the Sun Barn Wedding Inspiration!

In celebration of summer, we’re going to shake things up and share a real “fake” wedding this week! This photo shoot, set up by Christy Whitehead Photography in Jacksonville, Florida, captured the rustic charm of bandanas, boots and barn at a new wedding location, The Keeler Property. <!–more–>

Out in the pastures and down by the barn, the “Bride” and “Groom” had it all. The dress from Park Avenue Bridal, hair by Alison LeeAnn, and makeup by Ruthless Beauty. A Fantasy in Flowers designed the three different bouquets to play upon the rustic theme that were wrapped with bandanas, beads and rope.

Although this was a shoot, the Bride and Groom had a three tiered cake, designed in theme by Kakes by Katie, that provided for an all out cake trashing as a finale! Enjoy the photos and the fun…

Christina & Conrad’s Fantastic Florence Wedding

Ah, the romance of Italy!

Christina and Conrad’s destination wedding was accented by such simple, yet beautiful details that created an evening of sweet ambiance. The evening was lighted by a floating layer of candles in the pool of the elegant Riva Lofts, where guests gathered for the ceremony and outdoor reception. Rosapaola Lucibelli Photography captured the splash of reds, such as the bride’s contemporary dress, greens, in the trees surrounding the reception, and whites, like the of orchids scattered throughout. Red berries added color to the centerpieces and place settings, while graciously covering the tiered tart cakes with adorned signs for each. <!–more–>

Enjoy the beauty of Florence!

Carolyn & Paul’s Romantic Philadelphia Museum Wedding

It was pure magic when Carolyn and Paul met the day before starting law school together in Philadelphia. Their life together since has been one of laughter and good times and their modern, fall wedding was the perfect mixture of all their passions. <!–more–>

Carolyn had picked to have the wedding at the city’s local relic, the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. The museum provided a beautiful backdrop for photographer Cathie Berry-Green of BG Productions, plus it enabled the wedding to host guest in different areas throughout the day!

The ceremony took place in the beautiful cobblestone courtyard. Cocktail hour was enjoyed in the Warden Garden. Dinner was served in the high-ceiling Chinese Rotunda. And the night ended with drinks and dancing in the Upper Egypt Gallery. Floral design was provided by the talented Marybeth of Studio M Designs.

Staying true to incorporating their passions, the couple chose details that guests could thoroughly enjoy. The table “numbers” were local breweries and when guests sat down for dinner, they were enticed to a short history of each pub. The guests also received cookie cutters in the shape of leaves to carry on the fall theme. Groom Paul was pleasantly surprised to find he had his own cake with an image of Jim Morrison on it, as a tribute to his love for The Doors.

Share in the bliss of Carolyn and Paul’s wedding and enjoy the photos!

The creative team used this poem for inspiration:

Our story is set in Wonderland.
The Queen is in love… her heart is full.
Together with her king-to-be, they are hosting a wedding party reception, her way.
Her elite guest list is limited to a special few.
Held at her private palace, in the gardens, it is nothing out of the ordinary for her majesty.
Just feathers and fluff. Opulent jewel tones. Rich satin and lush velvet.
Gold glitz and glam. Natural greens. Delectable dessert. Roses red.
Her way.

The centerpieces are made of topiary and oversized chess pieces — genius!

Kim & Adam’s Fabulous Multicultural Yacht Wedding

An extravagant affair at sea marries Vietnamese culture with Jewish tradition

The incredible photos below are by the uber-talented Table 4 weddings, and a few are by their second shooter, Kim Le of Kim Le Photography. And you absolutely must must must also watch this insanely creative video by Joe Simon of Joe Simon Productions. When the wedding video is elevated to art like this, it makes me terribly happy. <!–more–>

As the product of a multi-ethnic marriage, nothing warms my heart more than seeing a beautiful wedding that seamlessly blends and honors different cultural traditions — especially when it’s done in super-elegant style! For Adam and Kim of New York City, their dream wedding meant inviting 100 friends and family members to spend 3 days aboard the Seadream yacht, for a celebration that included a traditional tea ceremony, a ketubah (Jewish marriage contract) and a chuppah (Jewish wedding canopy), fireworks (!), lots of groovy tunes, great food, and FUN!
