From the bright and whimsical lemon blossom bouquets to the sunny textile prints of the tablecloths, this is a feel-good party with charm to spare. Talented up-and-coming photo Alicia Danielle captured every detail.

Erin & Mark’s Glam-tastic Atlantic City Wedding

Welcome to Tradesy Weddings Wedding Porn Wednesday! I’m super excited to introduce this new feature, which will bring you  tantalizing, luscious, drool-worthy wedding images taken by some of the most talented wedding photogs in the world, right here every Wednesday. <!–more–>

“What’s wedding porn,” you ask? Wedding porn is photography that captures, in explicit, lingering detail, all of the spectacular visual beauty of a wedding. It’s not baum-chikka-wow-wow porn, though it’s been known to get certain brides-to-be all hot and bothered. Good wedding porn inspires, stimulates desire, quickens the heartbeat, and leaves you wanting more. Kind of like regular porn, but you can look at it at work, and even more like food porn, but not as fattening. (What?? You’ve never seen food porn? Oh my. Go to Food Porn Daily. I’ll wait here.)

Want to submit your photos for publication on Wedding Porn Wednesdays? Here’s how.

And now, without further ado, our first featured wedding, photographed by the super-talented Pat Furey, and first posted on The Wedding Chicks (with thanks to the gracious gals at Wedding Chicks for their republishing blessings).

Erin and Mark’s Glamtastic Atlantic City Wedding Adventure

They got married at the Showboat Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City. It’s all velvet walls and Persian rugs and faux-17th century sculptures. Watch Erin and Mark make it modern and cool.

Erin made her bouquet, the guys boutonnieres, and the centerpieces from — get this — the pages of Homer’s The Odyssey. Just take a moment to soak that in. It kind of makes me want to marry her.

This photo, the one right here below, is one of the most beautiful wedding pics I’ve ever seen. It is perfection. Be sure to check out photographer Pat Furey’s blog to see more of his work, which is more art than wedding photography. Thanks for sharing, Pat!

Lori & Justin’s Down-Home Chic Wildflower Wedding

Lori was inspired by this wedding, which we featured a few months ago, and hired bride Alissa to create her headpiece and add colorful tulle and a bustle to her gown. Check out Alissa’s Modern Nostalgia for more cool bridal designs.

Fun personalized details! Garters with the logos of the bride and groom’s favorite teams, and cowboy boots for the bride. How great would it be to throw those boots on with a pair of jeans and say, “I’m wearing my wedding shoes today”?

A colorful and playful dessert table features cookies baked by the bride and groom’s moms, representing Nebraska and Penn State. The moms then had to eat each others’ rival team cookies. These guys are serious sports fans!

Wildflowers in mason jars decorated the tables, and paper lanterns added a festive and chic touch. Both are perfect decorations for budget brides with miles of style.

Kate & Matt’s New England Fairy Tale Wedding

A Beautiful Boston affair overflowing with dramatic calla lilies

Kate and Matt’s Boston wedding was a picturesque, elegant event filled with understated touches of grand style. The traditional style was perfectly suited to the couple, who have known each other their entire lives. Their mothers have been great friends since college and got to see their children get married!  <!–more–> With a muted palette of ivory, yellow and green, and incredible views of the city and harbor from the gorgeous State Room, this classically beautiful wedding was like a fairy tale! And it was captured exquisitely by East Coast and international shutterbug Laura Parent of Relive Photography.

Hilary and Dave’s Laid-Back Seaside Celebration

Flip-flops, starfish, and a happily expecting bride in an intimate and casual beachfront wedding.

Photographer Gabrielle Fox first met Hilary and Dave when they hired her to do a maternity shoot while Hilary was pregnant with their first child. Two years later, with another little one on the way, the couple reunited with their fave photographer when she shot their beautiful wedding at a private estate on the California coast. <!–more–>  The event was a perfect combination of relaxed fun and gorgeous details, with abundant floral and cacti arrangements by Stem Design Studio. With all the ladies in beachy, flowing dresses, and the men in khakis and linens, the mood was stylish, sunny, intimate and fun.

Jordan & Josh’s Yellow Vintage Chic Wedding

An elegant oceanfront affair with pitch-perfect details in our favorite colors of the season

Jordan & Josh’s wedding at The Ocean Institute in Dana Point was one of those perfectly coordinated affairs where every detail is delightful and the elegance feels effortless. I’m so impressed by the innovative event planner Jesi Haack, who coordinated the day and created the flowers, table decor, fabric runners, and other super-stylish details.  <!–more–> The event was photographed by the inspiringly talented husband and wife team at Stephanie Williams Photography.

Whoever’s idea it was to wrap the bouquets in fabric by iconic textile designer Orla Kiely is a genius. Really.

This is one of my favorite tabletops ever. The minimal use of flowers is budget- and eco-friendly, and those antique-style lanterns lend a chic, casual elegance to the room. Notice the texture of the tablecloth and napkins and how they adds richness and contrast to the relatively simple setting.

More stylish fabric swatches, along with candles and whimsical table numbers, add to the room’s warmth and beauty. Smart event design like this puts all those giant gaudy centerpieces and satin tablecloths to shame, and proves that less can be so much more.
