It’s probably obvi why we’re digging Connie + Josh’s Arizona soiree. A straight-out-of-the-‘70s aesthetic, Annie Gerber’s ethereal photos, and lots and lots of DIY details. Oh, and did we mention that these two were married the day of the harvest moon, aka the biggest full moon of the whole year? Leave it to the moon to take a dreamy wedding and make it even more magical.

From Connie… We chose our wedding date around the phase of the moon. I’m a huge astronomy/astrology fanatic and the moon is my ruling planet. I would have liked a little more time to plan, but being married on the harvest moon was really important to me. We were engaged  for only three months, so it truly took a village of crafty and talented loved ones to put our magical day together.

I ordered my dress about five days after we got engaged and it was the only one left in any of the sizes, which just so happened to be the PERFECT fit. I just completely skipped over the wedding dress store hopping. I fell in love instantly with my dress because it had a very ‘70s bohemian feel to it.

It’s Monday and you all know what that means… We’re ready to get right back in the swing of things with another sweet soiree! We think you’ll agree that Samantha + Chris’ rustic vineyard wedding is nothing short of dreamy. This cute couple tied the knot in New Zealand, but the colors and theme of the day were inspired by a romantic Parisian autumn. Think pretty leaves falling from the trees, Miss Dior perfume, pastel pink hues, and French music that played throughout the reception. Très romantique, oui? Enjoy Andrea Seymour’s stunning photographs and little bits from the bride sprinkled in between.
