The sky is literally the limit when it comes to wedding venues these days. You can go glam in a big ballroom or get cozy in a rustic barn setting. Or in Andree + Greg’s case, you can bring in Shelter Co. to set up a pop-up glamping experience in the woods for you and all of your guests. Why not, right? These guys will literally set up shop in the middle of the forest, bringing in everything from the fully furnished tents to the luxe lounge furniture to the rad crop of vendors they work with. Accommodations are even set up for guests to spend the night, so the party don’t stop when the sun goes down. In fact, that’s prime time for s’mores making. Sounds like the most fun ever, yes? Thanks to Lovebird Photography for sharing this unique wedding with us!
The wedding was set right in the middle of a redwood forest. Pretty magical.
Fine dining in the middle of the woods? That’s our kind of camping.
What a creative and unique wedding idea! Love it!

In the words of Miley, We can’t stop, and we won’t stop… with all the amazing giveaways. We’re on day three of a whole bunch of giveaways celebrating our five-year anniversary, and we’re really just getting started.
Today we’ve got a pretty robe and romper from the Pretty Plum Sugar for BHLDN collection. They’re oh-so-cute to get ready in on your wedding day, and also lovely to lounge in on lazy Sundays as a married lady. All of the pieces in this collection feature hand-painted petals on soft cotton voile. Seriously stunning.
Now it’s time to enter to win a robe and romper in your size! The print will be based on availability, but they’re all gorgeous.
Good luck, cakies!
*This giveaway ends on Friday, March 7th and is open to U.S. entrants only.
Wendy Laurel Photography + the folks over at Pacific Weddings magazine are lucky enough to have the Maui beaches at their disposal when dreaming up beautiful shoots like this one. White sand, black rock, gentle waves rolling in… we can hardly imagine a more scenic natural backdrop. The theme for this shoot was “velvet and the beach.” When we think about the beach, we don’t normally think velvet—and that’s exactly what we love about it. Just add a touch of velvet ribbon, a tufted, regal-looking settee, and all of the sudden the beach feels less laidback and a little more dramatic.
We gotta say, the gowns are the real showstoppers here. Gorg!
Kudos to the amazing team of vendors below! You guys hit it out of the park with this one…
