With record low temps all around the US today, this Maui beach wedding has us remembering warmer days. Marla and Shawn were married this past July barefoot on Baldwin Beach, Maui. After 16 years together, they made their dream come true of having a beach wedding. Highlights of their Maui beach wedding include rainbows, music by Ukelele, coconut drinks, and post ceremony trash-the-dress. The photographer capturing this awesome couple was Wendy from Ardolino Photography. See all the photos next…
Maui Beach Wedding
Wendy tells us, “Shawn proposed to Marla in June 2012 at the Seattle Space Needle. They dreamed of a beach wedding, but didn’t know when or where they would do it. After being invited to a family member’s Hawaii wedding, they started to think that Maui would be the perfect location. The family member’s wedding location and date was changed, so Marla & Shawn decided to go ahead and book a flight anyways to have their dream beach wedding, just the two of them.”

Manor House Engagement
Scott tells us, “I met up with this super cool couple, Jennifer and Matt, at the Manor House at Prophecy Creek for their engagement session. They were both really fun to be around and the session went off without a hitch! The weather cooperated and the rain stayed away from us during our session even though it rained a little that same morning. Jennifer and Matt are getting married at the Manor House at Prophecy Creek as well. It was great to explore the grounds and to see where we could potentially go for photos on the day of their wedding. We ended up getting some awesome shots during the session and the three of us had a great time!”

This outdoor Seattle wedding has plenty of Anthropologie and J.Crew-esque style! The couple, Molly and Kenny, were married earlier this summer in a small town just north of Seattle, Washington. Their wedding was captured by Kali from Kali Norton Photography. Find out more from Kali and see all their beautiful details…
Outdoor Seattle Wedding
Kali tells us, “A couple of weeks ago, I had the utmost pleasure of traveling to a little town North of Seattle to photograph the nuptials of Kenny and Molly. We spent the most superb summer day in amidst their closest family and friends overlooking nearby mountains, eating the best food, drinking the best wine, and just celebrating their love. Kenny and Molly are people with a passion for food and an even bigger fervor for life. So, from pig roasts to local wine to the biggest laughs, everything was perfectly genuine.”
“It’s not always that I have the satisfaction of photographing a wedding where couples write their own vows, but every time I have the pleasure of hearing them, it ignites something so spine-tingling in me. Hearing words spoken out loud of things endured and how two people feel about one another, really brings to life the unique fibers that make up their love–in a way that we on the outside otherwise perhaps wouldn’t have the pleasure of ever seeing. Molly and Kenny’s carefully constructed words written for one another painted such a vivid picture for me of the fruition they bring to each other’s lives, that it brought me to tears.”
“From perfectly chosen Anthropologie and Jcrew-esque style to the most beautifully thought out speeches, I hope you enjoy a glimpse at their day.”

Emma and Tucker’s Iowa backyard wedding will have you smiling! Their wedding this past May was at Emma’s childhood farm in Sperry, Iowa. The joyous day was filled with heart-warming looks, a marvelous outdoor landscape, and a chic theme with gold colors. Kim from KimAnne Photography captured all the day’s beautiful moments. See the photos and find out more…
Iowa Backyard Wedding
Kim tells us, “Can I just say Emma and Tucker’s wedding was absolutely out of this world stunning and simply breathtaking?! We have loved getting to know Emma and Tucker, they are very special to us and I know they will find so much happiness together in their newest adventures.”
“Their wedding ceremony was so elegant and intimate, held in Emma’s childhood backyard garden, adorned with sweet momentos of her family and beautiful flowers. Emma’s mother’s best friend, Gina, from Peacock Park Designs, brought a mobile wedding day with her when she arrived the week of the wedding and, together with their closest family and friends, did not miss a detail throughout the day. Every last detail was thought of from the old fashioned typewriter with their names typed together to their beautiful love story pinned to their darling little flower girl’s dress. We were awestruck and in photography heaven the entire day!”
“Their reception was held in a beautiful tent in their backyard and their guests were treated to the amazing band “HELLONUVO” from Chicago as entertainment, and a great time was had by everyone who had the honor of celebrating with them. The lanterns topped off the night in a beautiful remembrance of Teresa and she was there the entire day in every amazing detail that adorned their wedding and in every loving guest that attended.”

This Lake Tahoe wedding was stunning! Sarah and Nils’ wedding was at the Thunderbird Lodge and had plenty of purple details, which makes it the perfect follow-up to today’s post about purple wedding ideas. This couple was captured amongst Lake Tahoe’s gorgeous scenery by the wedding photography team from Johnstone Studios. See their wedding and find out more…
Lake Tahoe Wedding
Johnstone Studios tells us, “Thunderbird Lake Tahoe offers the perfect wedding venue for couples looking to take advantage of the pristine scenery of Lake Tahoe. Thunderbird provides historic class that only sizable donations can secure for your fairy tail wedding. Sarah + Nils just couldn’t let Thunderbird go after seeing its manicured gardens and 70 year old stone lodge overlooking Lake Tahoe. The grounds contain many fantastic little features such as a card house, a waterfront gazebo, and the famous Thunderbird yacht. The underground tunnels offer the perfect opportunity for romantic couples photos. Overall it is the perfect place to host the start of your lives together.”
“Sarah + Nils’ rustic wedding contained so many fantastic DIY details such as flower centerpieces, clothes pin photo collages and their ‘Just Married’ banner that decorated the Thunderbird yacht for their couples cruise around Lake Tahoe. The couple even grew their own lavender which they used that to adorn the chairs with lace and purple ribbon. The touch of Japanese hand fans on a hot summer day was so smart for the comfort of their guests.”
“All of their little touches came together beautifully to compliment this historic venue on Lake Tahoe.”

This Hemingway House wedding will blow you away! This fantastic couple, Morgan and Matthew, had their May wedding at the Key West home of Ernest Hemingway. The Hemingway Home was just one amazing aspect of their wedding. Morgan and Matthew incorporated beautiful handmade details into their wedding including custom chalkboard signs, burlap bunting, and paper folding fans. Their photographer Filip from Filda Konec Photography captured so many great wedding photos from their Key West wedding that you’re sure to love. Learn all about this extraordinary couple and their happiness after the click…
Hemingway House Wedding
Filip tells us about the Bride, “Morgan lives in Clarksville, TN and is a veterinarian at a small animal practice. She received her Bachelors of Science at Middle Tennessee State University and then moved to Knoxville, TN to attend veterinary school at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine (GO VOLS!). She enjoys traveling and spending time with her friends, family and her sweet cat, Mischa.”
About the Groom: “Matthew lives in Clarksville, TN and is an operations manager at FedEx Ground Nashville. He has worked at FedEx for 11 years now. He enjoys kayaking the Red River, grilling, TN Vols football and St. Louis Cardinals baseball.”
How they Met: “Matthew and Morgan are high school sweethearts . They began dating in May 2000 when Morgan was a freshman and Matthew was a junior.”
Who Proposed and How: “For 4 years they had a long distance relationship while Morgan was in veterinary school in Knoxville, TN. Matthew lived at home in Nashville but drove to Knoxville every weekend to see her and their cat, Mischa. On March 2, 2012 he showed up at her apartment before she was supposed to arrive home and surprised her when she got there. When she arrived, there was a huge bouquet of flowers and a new collar around Mischa’s neck with a heart charm that said “Will you marry my dad?” Well of course she would!”
“Morgan almost ruined the surprise that day, because the weather was very bad with tornado warnings. She came home for lunch and almost did not go back to her internship due to the weather. Finally the weather calmed and she left, allowing Matthew to continue his plan.”
Why Key West: “In June 2012, Matthew and Morgan wanted to take a trip after Morgan had graduated from veterinary school. They wanted to go to a place they had never been before and make a road trip out of it. So Key West it was! After a 19 hour drive from Nashville to Key West, they finally made it and LOVED everything about Key West. During that trip, they toured the Hemingway Home for the first time and at that time would have never dreamed that they would be married there 2 years later!”
Why Filda Konec Photography: “Morgan accidentally came across Filda Konec’s blog when looking for Key West wedding photographers and instantly fell in love with the photos and knew she had to have them. She emailed them immediately and prayed that May 4, 2014 was available! Surprisingly it was, so she booked them right away and knew it was one of the best decisions they had made planning their wedding day!”
