Happy Monday, friends! Not gonna lie, today’s Mississippi wedding by Cassidy Carson Photography won’t make it any easier to start the workweek: Our bride + groom had a weekend-long celebration at Anna’s family home, with 130 people at the Friday ceremony and a fab reception, the “Swanky Soiree”, the next day. The plan to split it up came because of Anna’s health complications, so she could rest and enjoy the whole event with Daniel and their loved ones.

The bride wore an illusion high neckline, cap-sleeve blouse made of French Chantilly lace and French silk tulle. Just darling! Her bouquet recipe: white ranunculus, dusty miller, David Austin “Patience” garden roses, White Ohara garden roses and Pashmina garden roses

Anna snagged Cassidy Carson Photography by searching her fave film photographers on Instagram, sifting through hashtags from Erich McVey and Jose Villa’s workshops, for those that had the right feel and location. She even searched #contax645 and #fujifilm—her favorite combo!

Their biggest hurdle was planning with Anna’s health in mind. Her fatigue not only meant the two-day wedding but needing to sit during the ceremony and always having seats nearby. They did a flawless job of working this into the décor, don’t you think?

Parting words, c/o the bride: What I remember most about my wedding are the stolen moments of laughter and teasing after Daniel and I were married where we truly just reveled in the fact that we were now husband and wife. We were truly blessed to get two days to celebrate and enjoy the well wishes, love, and support of our friends and families. The second night we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves, which made the moments of shared laughter and joy even more memorable.

Cheers!

We’re noticing a shorter engagement trend as of late. Last Friday’s boho desert wedding was planned in 3 months, today’s was planned in 3, and later we have a two-day wedding done in 4. Less time to plan often actually means less time to stress, and Kendra and her guy pulled off their dream wedding this way with the help of planner/designer Madeline Hovey of Sweet Ambience and a handful of dear friends. Thanks to Kendra’s brother + film photographer, Curtis Wiklund for the photos!

John is a Designer and Animator and Kendra is the decorations buyer at BHLDN (eee!). So as you can imagine, the two of them and their super talented designer friends worked on everything from the florals to the music (including John singing a few songs!) to the invitations. Oh, and a ton of pretty BHLDN bridal fashion, like the Peter Som number above.

(More inspo behind their woodland theme here.)

Our venue had the perfect amount of lush trees and natural light, a charming barn with a loft overlooking the dance floor, and cozy little nooks to catch up with old friends over a cider mill donuts and hot chocolate. There’s nothing quite like an autumn outdoor wedding in Michigan, and we were so grateful to be able to use a friend’s back yard to celebrate.

And some srsly good advice: Save your money for the Honeymoon! The wedding day is an exciting day but you will never forget the sweetest moments you have with your husband on your honeymoon. I am so glad we were frugal with our wedding so we could enjoy a beautiful honeymoon in Napa Valley and Big Sur.

Congratulations, K + J!

Intimate 29 palms desert wedding | Photo by Rad And In Love | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=84927

Time spent engaged: 3 years; time spent planning: 3 months. Yep. See, when G + A got engaged in 2011, planning a 100-person wedding with guests from different states, on budget, with a location that repped them perfectly got quite stressful—even when they visited Joshua Tree and fell in love with 29 Palms Inn.

Fast forward to 2014, content with life in San Diego, when Geneva’s dad planned a trip from GA to CA. Since he can’t fly due to a medical condition, the timing was right to have the wedding then. Luckily photog Jamie of Rad + In Love was available and ended up being such a perfect fit that everyone thought she was an old family friend!

Geneva says, I was originally planning to have the ceremony onsite at 29 Palms Inn, but my mom and sister convinced me that we should have it in the park, and I am so glad they did! The guests rode together to Indian Cove Amphitheater on an old (and booze filled) school bus. The amphitheater was so incredibly beautiful; it felt really magical to be there and made our ceremony so meaningful.

Andy’s fave moment was being lifted up on chairs during the Hora dance, while Geneva’s was when one of their flower girls, Clementine, chose to walk down the aisle with Andy. When it was G’s turn to say “I do”, Clementine yelled “I do!” before she got a chance! Presh.

One of each dress, please.

The bride’s sis hit up grocery stores for wild-looking flowers and Geneva, her ‘maids, and the moms, had a flower arranging party. They had a blast and it was a huge money saver, allowing them to do the whole wedding for $10,000.
