Woodsy weddings are way romantic, yes? There’s something about being tucked away in the woods with all your loved ones that just makes us feel all warm and cuddly inside. Add in a babbling creek and Portia + Desmond’s vintage-meets-French-chateau-meets-shabby-chic style, and you have a wedding we can really get behind. We’re also digging the dreamy pastel tones captured oh-so-beautifully by Emily Delamater. Swoon.Read More

Major swoonfest, right? Something else to love… their “buy back” program for the rare vintage items in the “Private Reserve” section.
Private Reserve pieces are from our own private collection. These pieces feature a guaranteed buyback within 120 days of the purchase date. The program is simple – purchase the item at full price, take care of it when you use it, and then sell it back to us at the Private Reserve Buyback Price shown. You can also elect to keep the piece. Its up to you. Our Private Reserve is a great way to enjoy a beautiful piece of vintage history on your special day while having the assurance you can sell it back within 120 days of the purchase date. The only caveat is that the piece must be returned in the condition it was sent. If it is damaged, we will not purchase it back. Please keep away from hair spray and any other contaminants.
Ok, ok, we’ve got one more thing for you. Want to win one of their beauties? Weddings Bespoke is going to give one lucky 100 Layer Cake reader a chance to win one of their gorgeous pieces!

Heather + Carson’s Florida wedding made our jaws drop for a sec when we first saw it. Which is the same way these lovebirds felt when they first toured The Ringling Museum of Art Courtyard. Between the dramatic architecture, Greek and Roman-style statues, and the museum’s art collection that guests could view during cocktail hour, it was the obvious venue choice for their formal yet fun soiree. And thanks to Kallima Photography, we can ooh and ahh over this stunning affair all we want.
We’re waaayy into these Adriana Papell gowns. Those are the kind of bridesmaids dresses you’d be guaranteed to wear again.Read More

From fresh picked blooms to bicycles to a couple of good books, Kurtis + Renee’s engagement sesh has all the necessary ingredients for a perfect summer day.Read More
Lauren + Tim from Lauren Fair Photography designed this pink and teal “glam bohemian” shoot to be an inspiration to anyone who loves bright colors, floral crowns, shimmery gold elements, and rustic furniture… and to be the perfect backdrop for their friend Greg’s surprise proposal to his girlfriend Liv! From Lauren, She had NO clue. They modeled for us for about 45 minutes before Greg said, “I have one more prop in the car…” which was a sweet book full of Instagram photos of the two of them. When Liv finished looking through the book, Greg pulled her to her feet, dropped to one knee, and popped the question! One heckuva proposal, yes? Here’s how it all went down…
Look at how happy and cute they are even before the proposal!Read More
