Janessa tells us, “I have always loved coral, it’s been my favorite color since I don’t know when! For the wedding I wanted a more subtle, girly, pastel color and peach was perfect. We had a hard time finding dresses that matched the color I wanted, but we eventually did and I am so happy with how perfect they were. I have a very vintage taste and my husband was very happy to go along with what I wanted (even though he has more modern taste) and grey just watches with everything. It’s softer than black for a summer wedding, but still so classy. Bow ties were also a must; I had my sister (my maid-of-honor) help me find those online.”

“Planning was fun at times, stressful at times, and crazy at times! I was in my masters of OT all throughout the year we planned, and I am not sure how I got through that year (ha!) Planning a wedding and social were like two extra huge assignments. However, I had tons of help from our families and my bridesmaids.”

“My favorite moments included having both of my parents walk me down the aisle. It was beautiful to be able to do that with both of them; the pictures of us together on the aisle turned out amazing.”

“Seeing Chris smile as I walked down the aisle was one of the best moments of my life.”

“My favorite part of the reception was being carried out by Chris on his shoulders. It made for an awesome and fun entrance, and it was something that we said we wanted to do right when we started planning. It was the most uncomfortable I have ever been (my dress was unbelievably tight and I was upside down for so long!) but it set the stage for the fun night we had planned for our guests.”

Romantic Love Session in Oregon Wine Country

Today we’re featuring this “romantic love session” photographed by Sandra from White Ivory Photography. Sandra tells us, I captured Ashley and Alex in the heart of Oregon Wine Country, with sweeping landscapes of the vineyards and a lush atmosphere. The sheer sweetness of Ashley and Alex along with a superbly charming location made this a most delectable shoot to photograph. We all felt transported to a different time and place.”

New Haven Lawn Club Wedding: Christian + Rob

We’re loving this New Haven Lawn Club wedding! Meet Christian and Rob. This beautiful bride and handsome groom had their wedding at the New Haven Lawn Club in Connecticut. Their wedding has a classic theme tied in with some personalized handmade details. Katie from Katie Slater Photography captured the love, faith, and commitment that makes us so very proud to feature this wedding.

Christian says, “For me, the inspiration was remembering the past and embracing the future. I lost both of my parents to cancer prior to the wedding and my grandmother could not be in attendance. The colors we chose, certain aspects of the ceremony and giving to charity in lieu of favors were all in an effort to remember my dearest family members while simultaneously celebrating my future with my husband.”

“We did our own escort cards by downloading a calligraphy font and using great stamps we purchased on Etsy. We also did our own table numbers by using pictures of ourselves at the age of the table number. With the help of our wedding planner, we made ribbons for the different charities guests could vote for us to donate to.”

“My favorite part was the first look. Not only did it relieve some of the pressure from later on in the day, it was our time to soak it all in. We walked around the venue, saw everything we may have missed if we were only present for wedding activities. We got to chat with our vendors (who we absolutely loved each and every one of them!) and just enjoy the moment.”

Katie tells us, “Christian and Rob hold a very special place in our hearts. We knew this day was going to be special since our very first meeting. Christian came to us having recently lost her mother. She bravely and openly shared her story with us. We’ve been so lucky to work with such an amazing couple.”

“The love in Christian and Rob’s day is palpable. The quiet moments filled with prayer. The happy moments filled with laughter. We adore them all. We especially love how these two planned their day to represent more than just their favorite colors. They selected tones of pink (for breast cancer) and dark purple (pancreatic cancer) to remind them of their lost family members.”

“Simple, classic details. Walls washed in rosy hued light. Candles upon candles upon candles. There’s so much to love here.”

Denver Coffee Shop Engagement Session: Brie + Tyler

We love engagement sessions! Especially when they’re at a coffee shop. Brie and Tyler’s Denver coffee shop engagement session was magical! This wonderful couple worked with Emmy from Searching for the Light Photography to create some fantastic photos. See for yourself…

Emmy tells us, “Brie and Tyler met at a coffee shop. They are the most down to earth people you’ll ever meet and so it seemed fitting that their engagement session be at the coffee shop where their love story started. They are a very natural holistic romantic couple, so an evening shoot with romantic lighting and more fun outfits made up the second half of the evening shoot. Even though we got caught in the rain, Brie and Tyler had no problem pulling off fantastic photos.”

Brie says, “We chose Fika Coffee House because it was the place that we met. It was both our favorite coffee shop before we even met and we spent a lot of time there together. One of the first times we hung out, we were at Fika and Tyler gave me the book, The Alchemist. It was such a meaningful gift and such a vivid memory. From that point on I knew that he was different and started to feel like he was the one! So, when we thought about meaningful places to take our pictures it was easy.”

Daniel tells us, “Let me take you on a biking adventure in the next few minutes. And not any kind of adventure, but one that has a happy ending. You get the sarcasm here right? I’m far from talented when it comes to English writing. Stay for the photos maybe?”

“I’ve had some luck this season with the weather but adding a super sweet couple like Caity and Dave just blew my expectations away for a chilly fall afternoon at Belmont Plateau, Philadelphia.”

“They rode bikes, read to each other on a picnic blanket, opened champagne and even impersonated Red Ridding Hood, if Dave would’ve agreed to play the big bad wolf. All of this under the beautiful backdrop of the Philadelphia skyline, transforming every minute into a gorgeous red hot sunset.”
