It’s been a drizzly few days around here, but this sunlit scene may be just the cure. The story goes: Heather of Darrling Design dreamed up this bright, cheerful DIY-themed shoot while interning with floral pro Jennifer Laura Design and as soon as Jennifer saw her notes, she said, we have to make this happen. So they combined talents, gathered a team of vendors, and got right to work.

PS: Did we mention that Heather’s also a flower genius? Paper flowers that is! It’ll all make sense when you scroll through these snaps by To Live To Love Photography:

Heather’s father-in-law constructed a large frame for their backdrop, and she and her sister cut and hand tied each crepe paper piece to the frame. We love these gold and champagne tones, but imagine the possibilities for other color schemes!

Personal letters on romantic calligraphy to present to one another. His says, “Meeting you for a latte was the best decision of my life.” Too cute.

Heather executed the styling and design for the shoot, which meant crafting gorgeous paper flowers to complement Jennifer’s florals. We have a sneaking suspicion we’ll be seeing more of Darrling Design‘s DIY expertise in the future! Incredible, right?.

Romantic backyard Texas wedding | Photo by Juliane Masciana | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=82644

When you have personal ties to a specific location, it simply makes sense to say “I do” there too. For Morgen and Chris, the bride’s childhood in Victoria, Texas made just the place for a vintage rustic glam themed wedding with 75 guests: Morgen says, My grandparents built that house before I was born and now my mother lives there. I grew up climbing those oak trees and running through those fields and we plan to make many new memories there for years and generations. It was such an honor to share my special place with all my friends and newly expanded family. I know my grandfather would have loved seeing me get married under his trees.

Thanks to Juliane Masciana Photography for the photos below…

Yep, this Alfred Angelo gown in “ivory café” is the epitome of vintage rustic glam, don’t you think? It features net over satin, embroidered lace, crystal beading + sequins,  grosgrain ribbon, and a chapel train.

During the ceremony, we chose to wash one another’s feet as our vow to serve each other humbly and thoughtfully. It was important to slow down, connect to the significance of our commitment, and soak up the moment.

They found the perfect brown suit to go with the dress, too.

Morgen created her vintage glam look with gold tableware, gold chargers, mercury glass, and vintage pieces that flowed romantically with the natural setting.

Right in the middle of planning for the wedding, they sold their home and possessions and jetted off to London for Chris’ work. (Can you imagine?!) They then flew back to Texas for the wedding and were off to London again for the honeymoon—where they visited 10 countries together in the following months.

What’s sweeter, these desserts or the elegant vintage décor surrounding them?

A few words from our bride…

Our love story was fast and furious and I couldn’t see it any other way. We knew it was love on week one, engaged five months later, and married exactly one year from the day we met. When we met on March 20th, 2013 I didn’t realize it was the first day of Spring and my grandparents anniversary from 1965 so I really believe the date picked us. March 20th, 2014 was a wedding date where new love grew and more anniversaries memories were shared. Again, my grandfather would have had a great big smile.    

So sweet! Congrats to Morgen + Christopher!

Snowy Alpine wedding portraits | Photo by Roland Faistenberger Photography | Read more -  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=82624

Remember those bohemian wedding portraits by Roland Faistenberger Photography that (we can only assume) you fell in love with last week? After seeing a second set of dreamy portraits, we’re thinking Roland has gotten to know some pretty amaze couples as of late, at the coolest locales around too. This Alpine shoot with bride + groom Nina and Thomas has to be one of the best, set among snow-blanketed mountains that look like they’re straight from a winter dream.

The bride + groom both feel a deep connection with the mountains of Austria—especially Seegrube and Hafelekar at 2256 m. high in the Alps. Beautifully simple and breathtaking.

We’d gladly swap some of the warm LA sun for an Alpine view like this.
