Sometimes a wedding is just delightful. It’s laid back, there’s a sense of community from all the friends & family, the flowers are simple but fitting, and when all else fails an inordinate amount of bunting makes for adorable decor. Obviously having such an adorable and loving couple with a bride in her mothers wedding dress – perfection! Sharalee Prang photographed Beth + Mark’s wedding and said the sweetest thing: There were moments I felt as if the bride and groom might just float away, they were so happy.
How sweet is the back of her dress and her maiden braid? Such a simple and sweet updo for your wedding day.
Since the ladies of Persnickety Events & To Love Photographie have an affinity for intimate weddings and quaint restaurants, they decided to collaborate on a styled elopement shoot. Living in Miami, they know firsthand how chock full of restaurants it is and how stylish and savvy to cater to elopers they would be. They went with the eclectic mix of industrial and Mediterranean furnishings and courtyard of Soyka. Ornate chandeliers, wooden frames, a cornucopia of candelabras, every cracked piece of plaster there is intentional and adds to its overall charm. For budget conscious couples, a venue like this is perfect because minimal decor is needed.

Apparently Sabrina + John loved being engaged so much that an entire a year passed before they even lifted a finger to start planning. They just didn’t know what they wanted. Neither of them had even visited Santa Fe, New Mexico, but they knew they wanted a destination wedding and the lure of something entirely unexpected was enough for them. Wedding Coordinator & Designer, Jessie Baca coined their wedding style as modern meets mountain desert and that’s exactly what it was, modern yet still lighthearted and playful.
Sabrina had told her florist that she wanted a bridal bouquet was “asymmetrical and unrestrained” and the result was spot on. Sabrina fell in love with her bouquet made of an air plant, succulents, scabiosa pods, purple dahlias, burgundy scabiosa and jasmine vine.
So, yesterday we were switching back from this here blog and our new one, 100 Layer Cakelet, admiring the pretty illustrations by Kelli Murray and the gorgeous floral design by Bloem Hill in this flora & fauna birthday party. After stalking their blogs we noticed Kelli + Nicole are going to be collaborating on a new DIY series where they’ll be sharing one creative and beautiful project a month. Um, dream team, right? Their first project, these watercolor paper flowers with an organic, natural and painterly feel.
