HammerSky Vineyards wedding

Pretty. Pink. Romantic. Vintage. If any of those words describe your style, you’ll probably end up pinning every one of these images. Just a warning for ya. Valerie loves vintage-inspired weddings—the charm, the pastels, the little personal touches—and anything BHLDN, so their big day had to have all that. Plus a vineyard setting, a barn, and two white dresses. And you know what? Every little thing came together impeccably, pretty pink ‘maids and all. We don’t have to convince you though, Jake and Necia Photography will do that.

Valerie tells it, When Brian and I first started looking for a wedding venue, we had different visions of where our special day would be. He wanted to be married at a winery, and I saw myself tying the knot somewhere in a beautiful barn. After searching for weeks, we found HammerSky Vineyards in Paso Robles, CA, which happened to be the best of both worlds. Surrounded by green vineyards and beautiful mountains, this venue was sweet and charming, and happened to have the perfect white barn and farmhouse on the property. We wanted our guests to feel like they have traveled to a faraway place, unlike any other place in California. They definitely got that feeling with HammerSky Vineyards.

Some special touches that made our wedding day extra lovely were the vintage handkerchiefs I bought for my bridesmaids and moms to carry down the aisle, my dreamy flower crowns, the lace heart from my grandmothers wedding dress that was sewn into the train of my dress and of course, my handsome groom waiting for me at the end of the aisle. After the rehearsal, the night was spent with a few bridesmaids completing my escort cards and pie favors, which made for great laughs and many memories for years to come.

Pink peony bouquet

When you have a Claire Pettibone gown as the subject of your editorial, you have to make sure the other deets can keep up. A venue that encapsulates the romance of the day. Textured spring bouquets that channel a vintage love story. And soft images to convey the mood. Charla Storey’s shoot has it all + that’s exactly why we’re sharing it today. Take a peek…

Photog Charla Storey says, Texas springs are filled with life! Great colors, pops of pinks, greens, and rich golden sunlight! Inspired by spring and the textures of this stunning Claire Pettibone dress, the team knew we wanted a venue that complimented that depth, with a soft color palette. Camp Lucy was perfect with the textured stone, large carved wooden doors, and the ivy covered staircase.

Each little element channeled the movement and design of the dress, from the green spring setting to the bouquets of peony, ranunculus, and garden roses that Sweet Magnolia whipped up.

Sweet Magnolia’s gorgeous and creative centerpiece stole the show, filled with pinks, peaches and flowing greenery, adding right amount of pop on the table. Silk and Willow’s hand dyed table runner brings the right amount of depth, movement and is perfect detail for a romantic dinner for two! We really wanted to leave you feeling nostalgic and ready for a sunset dinner for two in Texas hill country.

White and gold wedding inspiration

(First off, that chair? It looks MADE for mountaintop loungin’ in a little white dress. Gahh!) So we knew that part II of these golden hour snaps from Scott Clark would be breathtaking, given the light and Malibu ranch setting we got to take a peek at during part I yesterday, but LB Events + Details, Darling really brought it with the reception design. Nothing better than a rustic-meets-bohemian setting right up on the golden light of sunset!

Blush and blue bouquet

Something blue is always a sweet detail in a wedding, but the team behind this enchanting shoot used it as the starting point for the whole occasion. From the blue Johanna Johnson wedding gown to the something borrowed décor sprinkled throughout, what could’ve been the tiniest details come alive when you really zero in on them. Oh and the florals? Taken to new heights completely, thanks to Tin Can Studios. We’re sure lucky Twah Dougherty sent these shots our way.

Is it strange to say every gal should have the chance to give this Elizabeth Fillmore gown a twirl?

Twah says, The blue wedding dress by Johanna Johnson was the perfect foundation to build the rest of the styled shoot on. We paired offbeat color combinations of deep plums, dusty rose, and peaches in the invitations and florals to accentuate the blue dress and to bring in a fresh aspect to a classic approach. Plus, their something borrowed included pieces from Borrowed Vintage‘s china collection for the tablescape.

California golden hour portraits

Utter the words ‘golden hour’ and ‘wedding’ in the same sentence and you’ve captured our attention for sure. Toss in a collection of vintage bridal wear and one of the dreamiest mountaintop settings and we really can’t look away. LB Events + Details, Darling collaborated on a series of wedding portraits and ceremony ideas inspired by a single song. We’ve got part I of Scott Clark’s images, plus the story below…

Kiersten of LB Events says, The song “Awake My Soul” by Mumford and Sons was the true inspiration behind this free-spirited shoot. The vendor team wanted to create something much like the song—a song that has lyrics that reach deep into your soul and a melody that evokes all kinds of good feels. The goal between all the vendors was to create beauty from simplicity. The location was truly something unique—the winding, twisting, unending road that leads up to Great Spirits Ranch seemed daunting at first, but there was a collective sigh of “ohhhhhh” upon arrival. The view is simply breathtaking. It’s one of those places that you feel like you’ve searched for your whole life, so there’s an immediate sense of peace once you are there.

Like we said, this Malibu backdrop sure is dreamy… The setting could not have been more perfect for our natural feel. Wisps of dried vines and the lush shrubs that covered the mountainside perfectly blended with our neutral color palette of green, ivory, and shades of oak.
