This might be a sweeping statement, but we kind of think these photos represent all that is pretty. Morgane of Big Day Event Design dreamed up a timeless, elegant shoot in the South of France at the beginning of summer, complete with roses, peonies, and one heckuva gorgeous theme. Then she hooked up with photog Studio AQ to create a soft, ethereal inspiration shoot for the romantic in us all. What a team!

Morgane says, The Domaine de Blanche Fleur is one of the most beautiful and enchanted venues in the Avignon area and we shot inside their ‘orangerie’, where there’s an amazing natural light, soft, but intense thanks to the huge windows.

Pink and gold Carmel wedding | Photo by Danielle Poffenbarger | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=76232

Rustic + traditional + glamorous is this Carmel wedding a year and a half in the making. It’s both elegant and down to earth, which is a great combo if you ask us. They decided on Carmel Mission Basilica for the ceremony after attending a mass there on vacation—how sweet is it that they can look forward to revisiting it on future vacays?

Thanks to Danielle Poff Photography for the photos below—they (and we!) were blown away by each and every one of ‘em.

Jessica’s Inbal Dror lace and tulle gown had a fitted top with a sheer lace back. Oh, and that train!—it was the longest in the bridal shop.

A pallet seating chart DIY by Chris + his father-in-law. Jessica’s advice: I highly recommend doing at least one DIY, if for no other reason than the fun story and memory after!

Jessica’s most memorable moment: After we were announced as husband and wife, and had our first kiss we walked down the aisle of the church and Chris stopped to kiss me right there in middle of the aisle. He always sweeps me off my feet!

Cheers you two!

These springy inspiration photos by Christie Graham Photography prove that in a gorg garden setting like the Hycroft Manor, the key is to add in sweet, romantic details and vintage touches, but let the florals take the stage. The vision, from Ashley of Spread Love Events: legacy, heritage, and a colourful take on tradition.
