How about a little coastal adventure to kick off the weekend? Ryan + Kristen’s e-sesh followed them from a clifftop to the sandy beaches along the shores of the Oregon coast, and it sure made for some incredible sunset snaps. Nikita Lee Photography captured every ounce of light filtering through the trees and reflecting off the water to represent R + K’s Oregon love story.

K + R both worked at rival coffee stands in their town when one day Kristen decided to give his shop a try. As fate would have it, they fell in love over the next year and now they’ll tie the knot this June in southern Oregon. Kristen tells it, A year after our first encounter was the best day of my entire life, when I got the greatest honor of being Ryan’s eternal bride. In the Old Mill District in Bend OR, three days before Christmas, he took me over the pedestrian bridge lit up so beautifully with twinkling lights, there he got down on one knee and took me as his bride.

Ryan came up with their Oregon location because 1) there are so many photo-worthy spots, and 2) the Oregon coast is where their love story began.

Kristen says, As soon as I became a bride, the one thing I was certain about was the necessity to find a photographer that would not only capture such a precious time in our lives, but one that could also portray the love we share for each other in photos we’ll cherish for a lifetime… Nikita has been such a blessing to work with and I am beyond thankful for the excitement she has shared with Ryan and I on this new adventure of ours.

Congrats!

After scrolling through all the prettiness that is this plum wedding editorial, we most definitely had a major craving for sweets. You’ll see why after you view the photos Jenna Henderson shared with us of the shoot at (and styled by) CJ’s Off the Square in Nashville. You’ve been warned!

One of our fave things about this color palette is how it can be worked into weddings of any season.

A few words from the stylists at CJ’s Off the SquareThis design is in the details: The entire shoot was built upon the flowers we chose (beautifully arranged by The Enchanted Florist!)…We fell in love with the ‘Danielle’ by Leanna Marshall the minute we walked into The Bride Room. It’s fun, flirty, and nontraditional, but still perfectly elegant for a bride for an upscale garden wedding ceremony. We added other on-trend elements, such as gold accents, to keep the look light and luxe. We love how this vision came to life!

From the beginning, F + B knew what they wanted—Frances found her dress on the first page of the first bridal magazine she saw and they were adamant about showing off the food, drink, and city skyline Melbourne, Australia is known for. They also knew that they didn’t want to place too much of a burden on friends + fam in the planning. Ben’s an Events Manager so he took care of the nitty gritty, and their stylist Georgeous Occasions designed a garden wedding that was both sophisticated and relaxed (read: Italian food + fancy drinks for all) for their big day.

Ready to check out all the photos by Adrian Tuazon? Sure you are…

Not sure about wedding colors? Look in your closet! Frances + Ben noticed a theme of blue, which helped them stay away from anything that felt too feminine for their tastes.

Frances says, The Van Handel Group in Australia are synonymous with impeccable venues and dining. We just couldn’t pass up this city location and their modern Italian menu at Fatto Catina. It is situated in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD on the Yarra River and features an outdoor terrace so we sat all our guests outside overlooking the river, perfect on a balmy summer night. The city skyline provided a beautiful backdrop and with Chinese New Year we has the night sky full of fireworks. The team at Fatto developed a decadent modern Italian menu and allowed our guests their own select main course which is a real treat at weddings and we had so much positive feedback on that alone.

Final words about the restaurant, via Frances…

We were adamant about selecting a restaurant over a traditional wedding venue as it offers a vast range of benefits. There is normally no venue hire associated with that option, the furniture and décor are already there lowering hiring costs and most importantly a good restaurant will see the benefit of being fully booked and appreciate a new range of clientele that will experience the restaurant and as such go above and beyond in the level of food and service they provide.

Wishing you guys the best!
