THIS dress. Straight up Vera Wang perfection, don’t ya think? With over half of the guests flying to Boston for the weekend, Sean + Vanessa knew a city wedding would make the most sense (despite Vanessa’s love of outdoor affairs), so they really went all out to make everyone’s trip one to remember. Thanks to Cambria Grace Photography for capturing all the crazy beautiful details on camera + sending ‘em our way!

Has there ever been a more perfect bouquet than this? Krissy of Pollen Floral Design seriously brought it.

Vanessa says, We agreed that we loved blushes, pinks, and metallics and aimed to create a setting that felt city chic and a bit bohemian, with nods to tradition. Throwing a good deal of the budget toward florals and collecting décor pieces with my mom made my vision come to life. We are decidedly city people but have a love of rich history. Find more inspo on her Pinterest.

During their vows, Sean + Vanessa surprised everyone by pulling out vintage books and reading to each other, alternating line-by-line. So sweet!

The Millennium Boston Hotel in historic Faneuil Hall is super close to many of Boston’s most iconic spots, and is decked out with big greenhouse-style windows to provide natural light during the ceremony and city lights for the reception…

After the ceremony, my new husband, MOH, Florist, and Photographer went traipsing around Faneuil Hall to the carousel at the Rose Kennedy Greenway to take some shots on the twin lobsters—my vision realized! Sean literally hoisted me onto my lobster in my wedding gown—it was perfect. Walking through our city as newly weds was really fun.

A few words on the budget, c/o our bride…

It was more than double what we initially hoped to spend. We learned quickly that a city wedding is not wallet-friendly. My advice would be to have open discussion early to set an ideal budget, then know your wiggle room. Start getting quotes on the aspects of the day you feel most strongly about—for us it was photographer, flowers, and food, and they were all sublime.

It sure looks like it! Congrats to Vanessa and Sean!

Sagewood Farm Canadian wedding | Photo by Olive Studio | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=82543

Jen + Dan’s wedding has “relaxed elegance” written all over it. They used to work for a safari company and lived in tents in Botswana and Zimbabwe for much of the time, so a wedding theme that encompassed the outdoors + camp-vibes totally inspired them. Luckily they found a killer venue, Sagewood Farm, with a tent and barn to get kick off the design.

Big thanks to Olive Studio for the photos below.

They fell in love with Sagewood’s open corn/soy bean field, honeymoon tent, vintage vehicles, ceremony space, and the outdoor bar that connected to the barn, to name a few features. (Whew, there’s a lot to love about this place!)

Jen tells it, A picturesque outdoor space for ceremony and cocktails was a must. We wanted to give our guests a different experience, something very cozy with a lot of character.

April of Olive Studio says, Each table was decorated with items that the owner of the barn had collected over years of antiquing. Glassware, china teacups, vintage silverware, various milk glass items and vintage salt and peppershakers filled the long harvest tables. Flowers were arranged in vintage boxes and in silver teapots. Each chair was different as was each teacup and saucer. Every single detail was thoughtfully considered, making guests feel like part of this vintage fairytale.

Would you believe J +  D planned the wedding in under 3 months?! They enlisted the help of Alexandra from Blush & Bowties to make it happen. She did the planning, designing, and lots of DIYing.

Rich red fall bridal portraits | Photo by Chris Dunn Photo | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=82375

Brides-to-be, have we convinced you yet that bridal portraits are sooo worth it? It’s your chance to shine in an intimate, personal way that you can look back on long after “I do”. We’ve had such a pretty bunch of portrait inspo here on 100lc lately, and we’re quite excited to continue the theme with this bridal session from Loren & Chris Photography taken at Sandia Crest, over 10k feet up at the top of the Sandia Mountains of New Mexico.

She wore a chiffon red dress with a unique embroidered open back. For a little added elegance, we layered a matching floor length lace cardigan. Her hair was swept up into an effortless crowning braid and her makeup was kept natural with golden browns and a cranberry lip.

Their goal for the bouquet + crown: an overflowing harvest of flowers. Floriography NM knew just the recipe with this local, organic mix taken mostly from their farm.
