When you have one of a kind wedding dress like in the photo above (adorned with real flowers even), you kinda have to find a place to appropriately show it off. Enter the northern part of Utah’s Great Salt Lake, where its salt flats and pink water can completely envelop you (and your guests too). After searching high and low, Amber Michelle Events ended up here, where her, photog Anastasia Strate, + their team whipped up the dreamiest pink editorial complete with stunning portraits.Read More
Are you getting excited for a whole new year of weddings and parties to devour? So many new floral trends to pop up, venues to emerge, and bridal gowns to swoon over—it’s overwhelming in the best way possible. Whether you’re on the real life hunt for a dress or trying to stay on top of industry news (does it get much better than wedding news?), here’s one fantastic place to start: David Tutera for Mon Cheri.
Looking like a pretty glamorous collection, right? Trusted for his expertise in all things weddings (who here is already a fan?), David Tutera worked with Mon Cheri designer Martin Thornburg to create a chic new collection ranging from ball gowns to A-line dresses and other modern silhouettes.
The Aura gown = an instant fave. It’s available in three shades too. Many of the gowns were inspired by soft pastel hues like gold, champagne, pearl, and petal. These days an off-white gown is something major to consider! Be sure to click into each dress on the David Tutera page for deets.
That mesh paneling is too elegant. Throughout the whole collection, expect rich lace, hand-beaded Swarovski crystals, sheer illusion bodices, and lots of different necklines and details to choose from. Basically, you’ll probably have a few new faves in the running once you flip through each design.

Denver friends, have you had a chance to check out Fort Greene? When Tara Bielecki Photography sent this editorial our way, we learned that not only do they whip up a mean craft cocktail, their neat teal walls + art deco vibes make a totally perfect wedding backdrop. Such an ambience calls for a bit of vintage flair in the details and fashion, no?Read More
Picture a relaxed black-tie celebration (Frank Sinatra playing in the background, bistro lights hanging over the lawn, a stunning Napa Valley venue…) and you’ve got Andy + Jaime’s wedding. He’s a foodie + lover of the outdoors and she’s a little more glitz ‘n glam. With Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch they got to combine both styles and throw a fun party for 65 friends + fam coming in from the Midwest. A dreamy day captured by the talented Jessica Burke? Icing on that fairy tale cake!Read More

This is for all the brides- and grooms-to-be that aren’t quiiiite sure how to pull all their interests into *one* design. Working with the beautiful Swedish American Hall in San Francisco, Jesse of Alison Events and Emily of Shotgun Floral Studio dreamed up a spring theme that combines moody vibes + bright, cheerful tones. We’re thinking the results probably had something to do with those killer florals Suzanna Scott Photography documented throughout, and all the yummy food + drinks. (Don’t get us started!)Read More
