Janice and Steve’s Destination Italian Wedding

“Janice and Steve enjoyed an amazing week of celebrations, starting with ‘hen’ and ‘stag’ evenings in local restaurants (the ‘hen’s definitely outdid the stags by the ladies dancing until the early hours in a small typical night club), the evening before their wedding was spent with all their family and friends in a lemon-grove restaurant – a relaxed evening enjoying local specialties.”

Beautiful Southern Plantation Wedding: Tanya + Trevor

This beautiful southern plantation wedding is one for the record books! Tanya and Trevor were married this past May at the Litchfield Plantation in Pawley’s Island, South Carolina. It was designed by Gigi Noelle Events, who handled an unexpected visitor well: Tropical Storm Ana. Although Tanya and Trevor planned to get married outdoors, they had to tent the wedding at the last minute. Many couples would have been bothered by a last minute change to plans, but Tanya and Trevor just rolled with it! In fact, Tanya was so high-spirited and happy to be marrying the love of her life that the storm did not upset her plans for the best day ever.

The bride and groom worked on wedding details together including making their own invitations, building an awesome beer trestle, and even a huge lawn Jenga game that was painted to match their wedding colors. There were rustic farm tables and a dessert/cake table, which featured “naked” cakes and yummy homemade desserts. They even had a kids table with activities to entertain them. As wedding favors, the couple made their own moonshine to give away to guests. They even had a custom corn hole game made, which was used as a guest book alternative! This is a beautiful handmade wedding at its finest! Read on to see the photos captured beautifully by Feuza Reis Studios.

Tracy + Ron’s Key West Wedding in Pink and Navy Blue

Get ready for some gorgeous beach wedding inspiration! Tracy and Ron’s Key Wedding was captured beautifully with Filda Konec Photography behind the lens and planning behind the scenes by Jennifer Levering of We’ve Got the Keys. Tracy and Ron’s wedding took place at The Westin Key West Resort & Marina, a venue which offers a stunning outdoor pier for the ceremony and romantic ocean-side views for dinner. For their beach themed wedding, Tracy and Ron selected a pink and navy color palette — one of our favorites! She chose short light pink bridesmaid dresses for the girls, who had the opportunity to pick a dress they loved in the same color (but in any style they liked best). The men wore navy blue suits paired with Sperry’s top siders. They also wore a coordinating navy and pink bow tie that really pulled together this fun and modern color palette. With this seaside ceremony, romantic dinner, celebration under the stars, and handmade details everywhere you look, this is definitely one of our favorite beach weddings to date! Enjoy!

We love this “wifey” card given to Tracy by Ron before the ceremony. And we spy some gorgeous Jack Rogers sandals and a fun pair of bride sunglasses, too! The bride’s pink garter was her “something borrowed” from her mom.

Rustic Mountain Wedding: Caroline + Alex

If you’ve been looking for a fun laid-back rustic mountain wedding, this is it! Caroline and Alex’s wedding was this past October in Trade, Tennessee. Raven from You Are Raven Photography captured their beautiful wedding and tells us more about the details. Raven says, “The drive up to Caroline & Alex’s rustic mountain wedding in Tennessee was one of the most beautiful ones I’ve ever made. They married near one of my all-time favorite locations in the world, at the White Fence Farm in Trade, TN, which happens to be one of THE BEST locations I’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting at.”

“I loved Caroline & Alex pretty much immediately, and they’re my kind of people up and down. They’re so laid-back and fun and goofy and were sincerely up for whatever ridiculousness I threw at them (which, with this location, was a lot). The weather was cold and a little rainy, which ended up being perfect for the two of them, they later told me, because their trip to Ireland together early on in their relationship was such a huge part of building who they are together. So their entire wedding day just reminded them of that trip.”

Marisa tells us, “We love these two! Kelly and Joshua met at Starbucks over 3 years ago after noticing each other several times and finally working up the courage to say hello. :) They got got engaged at sunset on the beautiful sands of Laguna Beach in November 2012. They have so much fun together and we love spending time talking with them; in fact, at our first meeting we spent almost three hours talking, coincidentally enough, at a Starbucks!”

“For their engagement session we went to the beautiful Heritage Park in Santa Fe Springs which features a historic greenhouse, windmill and orange grove. It is an absolutely gorgeous location! When we were talking about what kind of feel they wanted for their engagement session, Kelly inspired me to create a custom flower crown, just for our session! She was our first client to wear one and we are so excited to be providing them as a prop option to our brides.”

“We also designed their wedding invitations and spent some time writing the letters in the same font as their invitation on one of my favorite props: the chalkboard heart. We love creating a consistent look across the paper products and photos we create for our clients according to their tastes and vision!”
