Cute Key West Wedding: Kristine + Mike Tie the Knot

Meet this fantastic couple Kristine and Mike! They were married this past July at the Reach Resort in Key West, Florida. Their ceremony took place under a pier pavilion overlooking the beautiful water and sandy beach. Kristine and Mike celebrated in style while being photographed by Filip from Filda Konec Photography. The couple had some really creative ideas for their wedding such as beach inspired sand dollar escort cards, a life size chess game, a starfish guest book alternative, and cards for guests to fill out with advice on “The Key to a Happy Marriage”, attached to vintage-inspired skeleton keys. The soft color palette they chose was perfect for this beach themed wedding with pops of soft pink, light beige, and white. See the beautiful wedding below!

You Must See This Gorgeous Wedding at the Smithville Mansion!

You’re going to love Brian and Vanessa’s wedding at the Smithville Mansion! It was beautifully captured by Cathie and Al of BG Productions Photography and Videography. The bride and groom, Vanessa and Brian, met 3 1/2 years ago at work. They added personalized touches throughout their entire day, from the lace tambourines (instead of bubbles) during the ceremony exit to the homemade candles and Love Tea favors given to guests. They wanted a light, laid-back wedding, and we think they pulled it off perfectly! See the beautiful photos below…

A Beautiful Wedding in Juneau, Alaska — Real Weddings

Are you planning a wedding in Juneau, Alaska? You will want to after seeing this beautiful Real Wedding feature captured by Michaela from BrightEyed Photography! Amy and Jess’ love story began eight years ago. Amy says, “Jess and I met nearly 8 years ago at our friends pool party…”

“I was in the kitchen, frosting a cake when he walked in. In his description, he couldn’t take his eyes off me and I was the only thing on his mind at the time.” While they did not start dating immediately, they kept thinking about each other; five years later, the timing was right! They rekindled their romance after reconnecting on Facebook and had their first official date making haunted Gingerbread Houses and watching a favorite movie, Hocus Pocus. Amy tells us, “I knew he was the one.”

Real Weddings: Brooklyn Arts Center in Downtown Wilmington

When you have a stunning couple like Mallory and Travis gracing the blog and photographer Eric Boneske behind the lens, you just know it’s going to be a stunning Real Wedding! Their wedding was held at the Brooklyn Arts Center in Wilmington, North Carolina. This venue boasts exceptional architecture including 50-foot cathedral ceilings, original brick walls, and stained glass windows, just to name a few. It’s a vintage wedding dream come true! They chose a soft coral color palette infused with pops of blush and orange, along with coordinating botanical decor and paper goods. I especially love their elegant ceremony decor including mason jar vases along the aisle and a pallet-turned-sign which read “Come as you are, stay as long as you can, we’re all family here, so no seating plan“. It is easily one of my favorite handmade wedding details this year. I adore the bridesmaids’ mismatched dresses in shades of pink, the string lights which served as an elegant ceremony backdrop, and the rustically modern wedding cake. The inspiration begins below…

Take 5 → Vintage Summer Wedding + Creative Ideas

It’s time for a fun new series at Emmaline Bride! Be sure you’re following along so you don’t miss any inspiration along the way.

When we spotted these vintage Real Wedding details captured by Justin & Mary and designed by mStarr Event Design, it was the bouquets (from Petal Floral Design) that first caught my eye. Then it was the escort cards, and those chic centerpieces, and the boutonnieres! So, today we’re kicking off a brand new series every Monday called Take 5, where we bring you five stunning ideas from one single real wedding. We’re all about the details here (especially handmade ones!) at Emmaline Bride, so we know you crave creativity as much as we do. For our first feature, we’re sharing five unique ideas including a naked wedding cake, a decorative way to hold wedding cards, a reception table to dream of, and more. We even threw in two bonuses just because we couldn’t help ourselves. ;) Enjoy!

Vintage Summer Wedding
