categories 100LC's Favorite's, Real Weddings

It’s the eve before 2013 and we’re in total reminiscing mode. Sigh.. it’s been a heck of a year with a ton of gorgeous weddings. Modern, ruffly, sparkly, outdoor, destination, barn, classic, colorful weddings flooded our inbox this year and we want to take a moment, nah, scratch that – we’ll take the rest of the day to share all of our favorites. There is just so much pretty to share! Ready? Let’s do this!

(Click on the images to take you to the full post to view all the pretty pics from each wedding)

bleubird wedding

This wasn’t  just any wedding. It was the wedding of Miss James of Bluebird Vintage, her man Aubrey, and their beautiful children. It was photographed beautifully by Brooke Schwab and will make your heart feel warm and fuzzy. We promise.

california barn wedding

The be-dazzling wedding of Amanda Judge, founder of Untamed Petals, one of our favorite accessory lines completely wow’d us! Loved every dreamy detail captured by Ellie Grover.

Ierland countryside wedding

Max Wanger captured this Ireland countryside wedding beautifully, plus it’s one of those weddings that looked so fun you wish you were invited too!

Jesi Haack delivered a major punch of awesome and color in this modern Chicago wedding with a cowhide aisle and table runners, gold balloon table numbers, chevron curtains, graphic signage… ahh, it was a good one!

elegant Tuscan wedding

The bride’s dress swept us away, the photos of the Tuscan backdrop by Lisa Poggi are stunning, the romantic dinner with silver vintage cutlery and those candelabras – yep the entire wedding elegant and enchanting.

Whimsical Palm Springs wedding

Ok, this Palm Springs wedding designed and coordinated by Bash, Please was just a tad insane. So insane that we had to split it up into three parts! Words don’t do it justice, so click on the photo to take you to the full posts!

DIY Portland wedding

The letterpress invites, bride’s handmade shoes (made by the groom himself!), and freehand silhouette cutting station at this Portland wedding, photographed by Bryan Aulick were so unique and fun that we had to have it on our fave list!

Smogg Shoppe wedding

Smogg shoppe wedding

Sitting in a Tree knew exactly how to make this bride’s wedding sparkle, and EPlove knew exactly how to capture it all. A whole lot of glitter and a whole lot of pink peonies made this one of our favorite sparkly weddings of the year! And how cool is that instax photo canvas as a guest book?

Alder Manor wedding

The combination of the bride’s dress, moody and romantic photography by Dan O’ Day and the perfectly imperfect details of this couple’s venue were breathtaking.

Pink and gold California wedding

Pink and gold California wedding

When we found out Taylor Sterling, Founder + Creative Director of The Glitter Guide was getting married and that Edyta Szyszlo would be photographing it, we knew it’d be a fete to remember. It was a stunner, for sure!

Amanda and Tim's wedding

Then there was the memorable wedding of our very own Amanda and her husband Tim, photographed by the amazing Max Wanger! It tops the charts as our fave and we’re still reliving it in our minds today. Sorry we’re teasing you with just this one photo, but it will all be worth the wait come spring when it’s released in Martha Stewart Weddings!

There’s enough eye candy here to keep you busy for a good chunk of your day, yes? We’ve got even more coming up as we dig through and pick out our favorite wedding cakes, invitations, dresses and wedding bouquets from the year. Check back in just a bit!

ps. Aren’t you dying to see what all these brilliant photographers and wedding designers have planned for 2013? We can’t wait!
