How sweet is it that Chelsea + Will wanted their wedding to be someplace they could return to easily and add memories to? They also wanted to be able to stay at their wedding venue as late as they wanted to party with their 155 guests. So they went with Chelsea’s family farm. Her great grandparents held their wedding there, she spent most of her holidays there, and it was where she brought Will into her family’s traditions when first starting their relationship. So how did they dress up the farm? Glamorous camping style, with tons of color & handmade details, all photographed by Paige Newton.
Rachel + Ashkahn had their wedding at Mildale Farm, an estate out in the middle of the countryside in Kansas. It’s completely private with land as far as the eye can see, peaceful, breathtaking, natural, so romantic, and was handsomely captured by Steven Michael Photography. It’s everything that graphic designer, Rachel fell in love with, and what also inspired her to spend countless hours designing the custom script for their wedding invitations.
We’re coming full circle with Tauri + Dylan. Remember last July when we featured their incredibly sweet engagement photos & video? Their story tugged at our heartstrings like crazy, and honestly, we could not wait for their wedding especially knowing Ciara Richardson was going to photograph it and Digital Memorys was going to capture it all on video. Lots to see, so let’s jump right into it, shall we?
Tauri’s bridal bouquet recipe: Peonies, ranunculus, roses.
Let’s talk about this dress! Tauri’s mother made it. Each vintage lace applique and bead was hand-stitched to the lace body of the top. The skirt is layers upon layers of different shades of delicate vintage tulle to match the top. A portion of her mother’s wedding dress, that she also made, was stitched to the inside of the skirt. Tauri didn’t know she was going to do that until she put the dress on for the ceremony. She could feel it on her leg as she stepped inside the skirt and knew immediately what it was and both cried.
The brick walls, the relaxed and rustic vibe, and the the twinkle-lit courtyards at the Carondelet House venue near downtown Los Angeles make it quite the magical place. We envy any couple that gets to celebrate their wedding there. And we envy Rad + In Love for capturing not just any wedding there, but this dreamy one. Even with 120 guests, everything about their wedding felt so intimate. Maybe it was all the gorgeous lace details in Rowina and her bridesmaids’ dresses, or the candlelit alter both of their fathers created for them, but we’re loving it to bits.
How amazing is her Rodarte star hair pin? Dying.
These macaroon jewel boxes are the cutest and make perfect bridesmaids gifts.
Guys, we can’t think of a prettier way to start off the week than with Lisa + Aaron’s wedding, captured stunningly by The Mullers. Let this first image of Lisa’s homemade birdcage veil, and hand-beaded Reem Acra dress covered in sequins and pearls be just a taste of the loveliness that’s to follow. So many fab details in this one. They did a perfect job of bring a bit of city glam and their love of modern design into the style they coined, City Glam meets Nebraska Countryside.
We want her veil! She actually designed it too, using a flower she found at Soutche and French tulle for a spin on the traditional birdcage veil.
Is it crazy that we’d actually want this photo as a print to hang on our walls? Such a gorgeous shot.
Those J.Crew gingham ties are always a fave to see on groomsmen.
