We love the idea behind these Ireland-inspired bridal portraits that As Ever Photography shared with us: to honor your heritage in subtle ways that reflect who you are personally. No need to go crazy with tradition or shower the scene with shamrocks (unless you want to of course!), just pay homage to your roots in the way that feels best to you as a bride. Kinda great, right?
Totally into this bronze smoky eye. (PS: We’ve got another sultry makeup look later this morning.)
Jennifer of As Ever Photography says, I lived in Ireland for six years and a piece of my heart will forever remain among her rolling green hills and rocky cliffs. I love creating styled shoots to express something about who I am as a photographer and the aesthetic elements that have influenced me. This editorial portrait session incorporates some of my favorite Irish bits and pieces… beautiful handmade linen and lace, Waterford Crystal rosary beads, a traditional St. Brigid’s cross and claddagh ring, and a nod to the emerald isle’s rich literary heritage.
All about those gold details.
This. Cake. Is. Divine. Agreed?
Thanks to As Ever Photography for showing us all the little ways we can celebrate our backgrounds!
This wedding editorial shot on an alpaca farm has all the ingredients for a dreamy spring shoot: light ‘n airy bridal fashion + hair, bouquets to make your heart skip a beat, and something extra to add interest to an already breathtaking scene—AKA a few adorable animals. All wrapped up in soft photos by Nicole Berrett Photography to capture the mood, too…
A darling flower girl is a necessity, don’t you think?
Leslie of Everly Alaine Florals fills us in… The banquet style table created a casual, family-friendly feel. The table was provided by Neighbor’s Table, an inspiring company with a mission to bring people to gather around the table to share stories, love, and a sense of community. The tablescape was styled in neutrals, with one oversized arrangement full of lush greenery and pops of warm colors of red, peach, pink, and cream. The bride carried an organic bouquet full of garden roses…The elements of this shoot created a stunning look with no elaborate décor, just unique elements and beautiful pictures.
All of the styling + décor was a collab between Leslie + stylist Lindsey Brunk.
A beach engagement is already set up to be beautiful—soft light, gentle waves… You know what we mean. But spring in the northeast means bundling up and braving the crisp air, which the team behind today’s shoot knew would be ideal for a Hamptons proposal—scarf, cider, cozy camp setup and all. Thanks to Ashley Caroline Photography for the photos!
Isn’t her outfit the cutest?
From Lovely Day Styling & Events: The vendor team was a family affair—the model’s sister and cousin took part, providing sweet details and stunning florals for our scene. The wooden palette was freshly picked from a curb that morning and provided a rustic-chic table on the beach. The Pendleton blanket was authentically sourced and warmed our lovebirds throughout the day. Our seasonal color palette featured blush tones textured with patterns, plaids and pops of burgundy.
Such a sweet post-proposal setup.
This engagement inspiration… While on the island for a long weekend, he takes her for a walk on the beach and surprises her by popping the question with a rose gold ring in a vintage box. The sun-kissed afternoon is filled with tender moments (a handwritten love note, her favorite cider drink), warmed with a pre-planned campfire, detailed with gorgeous florals and sweetened with thoughtful treats (campfire pies, a small cake and rosemary/lavender madeleines). It’s a day they’ll never forget and an afternoon filled with moments that were uniquely theirs.
Too sweet. Hope this inspires any of you perusing 100lc for proposal or e-sesh inspo.
Thanks to all the northeast vendors below for putting this together!

It’s a fun way to kick off our week dedicated to looking and feeling your best on your wedding day, and we get to hang out with our readers. We guarantee you’re going to love it.
If you haven’t been to SoulCycle before or haven’t even been to a spin class before, no worries! They are so super helpful and accommodating. Everyone has to have a first time, right? Shoes, water, and an amazing workout is included. And if you’re on your way to work, great! They have really nice showers and amenities so you can get ready after the class right there.
We can’t wait to sweat it out with you! And hopefully motivate you to make a little time for yourself and your health as you prepare for your big day. If you’re already married or not yet engaged, you are still 100% welcome to come. The more the merrier.
Fancy another adorable spring California wedding? We sure do. With Cammie’s family vineyard as an option, choosing a venue was easy. The next order of business was packing a weekend full of fun, casual events, so that they could actually spend time with each of their 120 guests. And when it came to choosing other vendors, they simply went with those they felt most comfortable among, Sylvie Gil Photography, being one of them.
Yeah, we think that’s a pretty spectacular spot to get married.
Their love story: Cammie + Kip met in a playgroup as babies. Even though they lived apart until they went to the same college, they always kept in touch. After their first kiss, Kip told her that she was the love of his life. After dating long distance for four years, they finally said I do! Too cute.
The weekend consisted of pre-wedding cheer on Thursday + a girls’ lunch that Cammie’s grandmother hosted on Friday. Then a dinner and the ceremony at their vineyard. They wanted to give the reception a cocktail party feel, so they opted for food stations to get everyone mingling. After a night of dancing, Cammie’s grandparents put on a farewell brunch. Sounds jam-packed with good vibes if you ask us.
Romantic china a la Frances Lane to complement the handcrafted aspects of the design: collected vases, painted signs, gift boxes of sweets, etc. Cammie explains, We tried to incorporate elements from both families in the details. Kip’s family loves to sail and ski. One trick they have for identifying their boat is using glow sticks, so we had glow sticks for the dance party. Kip and I took a celebratory shot of rum from a shot ski his sister made for us. We used his grandmother’s recipe for punch as a signature cocktail. I also placed a pin his aunt gave me on my bouquet. My uncle made all the wine. My grandma cut squares of fabric for people to sign as a guestbook. We placed photographs from our parents’ and grandparents’ weddings on the same table. Our wedding cake was banana with peanut butter frosting, which is the same flavor my parents served on their wedding day…
Paperweight Films was another vendor that the bride + groom made instant friends with…
From the bride… Our wedding was such a fun day! The next morning our faces hurt from smiling so much. I knew it would be a wonderful time, but I had no idea how incredible it would feel to have all our loved ones together.
Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone! We thought we’d share the photos from our DIY plant hanger workshop with Room & Board and Crafting Community with you this weekend. It was such a lovely afternoon and event, and everyone who came made a really cute planter. We’ve got ours hanging in our houses for sure!
Naturally we had to have snacks and lots of flowers.
And gorgeous little locally grown succulents donated by Whole Foods Market.
Thanks to everyone who came out to this event, and to Room & Board and Crafting Community for partnering with us! We can’t wait to do it again soon.
