The Bride’s Galia Lahav Gown Provided the Victorian Inspiration Behind This James Burden Mansion Wedding
May 7, 2019 by Khoi Nguyen in Wedding 0 Comments

Xiaoran and Hua gave us all the classic Victorian vibes in their New York wedding at James Burden Mansion! The bride had always dreamed of wearing an incredible gown on her wedding day so, when she fell in love with an organza, off-the-shoulder stunner from Galia Lahav, a regal vibe was the only natural fit for the rest of the day. BLB Events brought ornate vintage decor, luxurious textiles, and eye-catching florals designed by Devon & Pinkett into perfect harmony with the grand venue, and Nine Cakes created a show-stopping hand-painted wedding cake to match the sophisticated feel. No detail was left unattended, and Nicole Ashley Photography captured it with such creativity and artistry! The Couple: Xiaoran and Hua The Wedding: James Burden Mansion, Manhattan, New York I believe a lot of girls dream of wearing the most beautiful wedding gown when they marry their man. So the very first thing I did was purchase my wedding dress! The gown was a Victorian style, so I made sure the rest of the wedding had a similar style. When I was getting ready on the wedding day, I got a bouquet from my soon-to-be husband. I asked him later why he brought me a bouquet, knowing how many flowers we had throughout the decor. He […]

We’re whole-heartedly obsessed with every detail of this wedding, especially the bride’s off-the-shoulder Theia Couture gown and handmade veil! From first look to the sparkler exit, photographer Katelyn Ortego truly captured the magic of this Georgia wedding! The Couple: Brynn and Andrew The Wedding: Mill at Yellow River, Porterdale, Georgia Staying true to ourselves was the most important during planning! We didn’t want to do something just because it’s a thing people do! we wanted everything to be authentic, meaningful, and a celebration. The most memorable part of our day was our first look before the ceremony! Spending time together alone was so special and magical we can’t imagine it any other way.  Our advice is to start planning early because the details can really start to pile up quickly. We only had 6 months to plan our wedding, and we really didn’t start until 2 months in…oops! […]

Scandinavian Style Meets Moroccan Flair in this Boho Helsinki Wedding
May 3, 2019 by Khoi Nguyen in Wedding 0 Comments

Maria and Juuso’s Helsinki wedding was the perfect combination of modern style and bohemian charm! The couple’s DIY-heavy decor complemented their indoor/outdoor venue, Bokvillan, adding just the right amount of personality without overwhelming the inherent beauty. Their neutral color palette actually revolved around second-hand brass candlesticks they found at flea markets around the city. Then they brought in furniture, rugs, and accent pieces from their own home along with the prettiest minimal floral designs from Syväsen Kukka to round out the look. Photographer Patrick Karkkolainen could not have captured this day more perfectly, from the couple’s private vow exchange to their golden hour portraits! The Couple: Maria and Juuso The Wedding: Bokvillan, Helsinki, Finland The most important thing was to make the day reflect us and for our guests to feel the love that we share with each other. We wanted them and us to feel at home and to feel like our wedding was a big celebration of love and life itself. Our vows, which we shared before the ceremony, were the most memorable part of the day. The things that we said to each other will live in our hearts forever. Also, seeing our guests dancing to the Latin rhythms that our performer Daniel […]

April 27, 2019 by Khoi Nguyen in Uncategorized 0 Comments

Lauren and Steven’s beautiful Casa Cody wedding was full of sunshine, tacos, and dancing…is there anything better?! Kelsey Rae Designs helped the couple bring a New York vibe to the California desert and made it all feel effortlessly chic. Love Her Madly took cues from the Spanish-style venue to create floral arrangements in neutral tones with moody pops of color that added elegance without taking anything away from the inherent charm. To round out the day, the couple served tacos, classic deli staples, ice cream sandwiches, and custom cocktails in a tiny mobile bar, all of which spoke to the couple’s fun-loving (and food-loving!) nature. Photographers Joe+Kathrina captured every moment of this wedding beautifully, especially the couple’s post-ceremony portraits in the windmill-studded desert! The Couple: Lauren and Steven The Wedding: Casa Cody, Palm Springs, California We chose Palm Springs because Lauren‘s family used to vacation there as when she was a kid and because we knew that it would offer such a unique California experience. And finding Casa Cody was love at first sight! We visited a handful of other venues but nothing else compared. It is just a gorgeous, unique, historical property. We wanted to feel like we were hanging out in a backyard full of the people […]

April 25, 2019 by Khoi Nguyen in Wedding 0 Comments

As the final event before the big day, the rehearsal dinner is essentially the bridge that takes the couple, the family, and the wedding party from planning mode to wedding weekend party mode! While the general idea of the rehearsal dinner has remained the same, the execution and expectations have definitely evolved through the years. So, in order to help you plan the perfect rehearsal dinner to kick off your wedding weekend, we’ve put together the ultimate guide with answers to the most common questions, theme ideas, and outfit suggestions. photo by Blossom&Co COMMON QUESTIONS Who pays for the rehearsal dinner? Traditionally, one side of the family — typically the side that’s not helping pay for the wedding — will pay for the rehearsal dinner. However, more and more couples today are either paying for the rehearsal dinner themselves or splitting with both sides of the family.

April 23, 2019 by Khoi Nguyen in Wedding 0 Comments

Corinne and Joseph’s wedding at Terrain at Styer’s was essentially a rustic and ethereal garden dream come to life! The couple embraced the natural feel of the venue and added only minimal, heartfelt details to make the space feel truly personalized. Florist Julie D’Agostino took their vision of stepping into an organic garden and created the prettiest floral arrangements in a soft palette of pinks, whites, and greens, which looked absolutely gorgeous against all the greenery within the grounds. This wedding was full of warmth, full of love, and full of beautifully curated details, all of which Patrick Robinson Photography captured with such ease and grace. The Couple: Corinne and Joseph The Wedding: Terrain at Styer’s, Glenn Mills, Pennsylvania The most important thing to us in planning our wedding was to have it feel more like an intimate gathering than a large formal wedding. We live quite far from our friends and family and wanted to be able to remember and spend as much time as we could on this special with our nearest and dearest. Before we were ever engaged, my girlfriends and I spent hours planning our “dream weddings” by searching blogs and websites, and that’s when I stumbled upon Terrain at Styer’s. I instantly […]

Delightfully French Toulouse Destination Wedding at Domaine Du Beyssac
April 20, 2019 by Khoi Nguyen in Wedding 0 Comments

Anna-Leigh and Paul’s celebration at Domaine Du Beyssac was everything we love about French weddings, and so much more! The couple focused on creating the most joyful day with all their loved ones, and the results were nothing short of stunning. With the help of Awardweddings, they hung ribbons in the “happy” ceremony tree, used wildflowers arranged by Les Ideales for the tables and bouquets, and dressed up the historic site with colorful lanterns. The vibe was casual, summer chic, and Susie Kelly Photography captured it so all beautifully. From the raw emotions to the unbelievable sunset over the French countryside, everything about this destination wedding was truly unforgettable! The Couple: Anna-Leigh and Paul The Wedding: Domaine Du Beyssac, Toulouse, France As it was a destination wedding, it was so important that we made it easy for our guests to get to our venue. They were already making the journey to France from Ireland and some of our friends and family even came from Vancouver and New York. So we made a website with a list of hotels in Toulouse city as our venue was 50 minutes outside the city and then had a coach collect all our guests the day of the wedding and bring them to […]
