This Emotional Cairngorms National Park Elopement Will Have Your Scottish Wanderlust Out of Control
April 2, 2019 by Khoi Nguyen in Wedding 0 Comments

Jodi and Zach’s Cairngorms National Park elopement in the Scottish Highlands had everything we love about adventure elopements: breathtaking scenery, unique style, and sentimental details. As adventure wedding and elopement photographers themselves, it comes as no surprise that Jodi and Zach (aka The Camerados) had an intense focus on creating a day representative of their carefree spirits, and bringing everyone they love into the fold. They and their guests spent an entire week bonding and falling even more in love with Scotland. Then, on their actual wedding day, they all trekked deep into the lush forests and fully embraced the unpredictability of Mother Nature as they exchanged vows, sang, and danced their way into married life! We’re seriously deep in our feelings because of the emotions The Kitcheners captured in both their pre-wedding film and every single elopement day photo. The Couple: Jodi and Zach The Wedding: Cairngorms National Park and Inshriach House, Scottish Highlands, United Kingdom Honestly, we didn’t do a lot of planning for the actual day, but we did do a ton of planning in the logistics for the week. We eloped with our family and a few close friends in the Scottish Highlands at Cairngorms National Park. The most important part of our […]

This Desert Glam Wedding at Under Canvas Brought the Boho Flair to Zion National Park
March 29, 2019 by Khoi Nguyen in Wedding 0 Comments

Want to know why spring and summer are two of our favorite seasons? Because we get to gush over all the boho desert weddings again, like this one at Under Canvas! Jamie and Johnny brought boho glam to the max with their decor, colors, wedding party style, and floral design. The couple’s goal was to create a celebration not only worthy of their love, but that let their guests get a deeper understanding of their life and views on marriage. So, their festivities included yoga, karaoke, dancing, and pizza. No detail was included just for the sake of tradition, and that level of personalization made this wedding something truly special! Luckily for us, Lauren Mihae Photography was there to capture every incredible moment! The Couple: Jamie and Johnny The Wedding: Under Canvas, Zion National Park, Utah I think the most important planning aspect was making the entire wedding weekend a very personal, authentic reflection of who we are as a couple. Often times a bride and groom get so caught up in pleasing other people – your parents, your community – that you lose your sense of self in the process. However, we wanted people to leave with a better understanding of our […]

This Traditional Ojibwe Wedding at Wanuskewin Heritage Park will Take Your Breath Away
March 22, 2019 by Khoi Nguyen in Wedding 0 Comments

Between the 20-foot tipi towering over the banks of the Saskatchewan River and all the reverent homages Angela and Cullan paid to their ancestors throughout their wedding weekend, this Ojibwe wedding was truly unforgettable. The couple’s ceremony took place within the sacred Wanuskewin Heritage Park and featured traditional Ojibwe wedding ceremony rituals performed by the groom’s father. The next day, the couple took their guests to The Red Pony Stands Ojibwe Horse Sanctuary for a reception that stayed true to their wild, free-spirited vibes and included portraits with a revered breed of pony that has deep significance to Canada’s indigenous tribes. Our hats off to Angela and Cullan for creating such a nuanced and sentimental wedding day and to Stick Productions who caputed it all! The Couple: Angela and Cullan The Wedding: Wanuskewin Heritage Park and The Red Pony Stands Ojibwe Horse Sanctuary, Saskatchewan, Canada The most important aspect of planning our wedding was incorporating our Ojibwe traditions into a contemporary wedding ceremony to reflect our shared spiritual and cultural values. The father-of-the-groom officiated the wedding ceremony on our behalf, which included a traditional pipe ceremony and cultural protocols passed down from our grandparents and great-grandparents. The wedding ceremony was conducted entirely in the Ojibwe (Anishinaabemowin) language, including our vows. The […]

Desert Chic Joshua Tree Wedding at The Ruin Venue
March 20, 2019 by Khoi Nguyen in Wedding 0 Comments

Lauren and Robert’s desert wedding at The Ruin Venue was boho minimalism at its absolute finest! With the help of Heartthrob Weddings and Events, they brought their at-home style into the desert with vintage furniture, organic textiles, neutral florals from Tropic of Flowers, and tons of greenery. In keeping with the boho-chic vibe, Lauren chose a dramatic Rue De Seine gown and delicate flower crown, and her girls donned neutral Show Me Your Mumu that complemented her look beautifully! Between the bride arriving at the ceremony in a vintage car, the golden hour portraits, and the plate smashing at the reception, there were so many unforgettable moments that Sarah Linda Photography captured brilliantly! The Couple: Lauren and Robert The Wedding: The Ruin Venue, Joshua Tree, California When planning our wedding, the most important factor for us was finding a great venue that reflected who we are as a couple and giving our family and friends an experience they’d never had before. The most memorable part of the day was seeing all our family and friends in one place together to celebrate our special day. We had guests from England, Canada, Hong Kong, Cayman Islands, and Australia, so being reunited with everybody was an unbelievable feeling. Wedding Party Processional – “Heart of […]

Effortlessly Glam Tuscan Wedding at Castello di Gabbiano
March 19, 2019 by Khoi Nguyen in Wedding 0 Comments

After falling in love with Italy and getting engaged on the Amalfi Coast, Dorien and Philippe knew that Tuscany was the perfect region to say, “I do,” and Castello di Gabbiano was the ultimate venue to host their family and friends. The old-world architecture, the rolling vineyards, and the cozy atmosphere were perfect for a day that was filled with effortless glamour and rustic elegance. The couple’s florist, Wild Flowers & Wodka, added minimal arrangements in pinks, creams, and oranges that added a subtle softness to the classic rustic Italian setting. And the bride’s modern two-piece ensemble from Rime Arodaky added a touch of whimsical romance that we can’t get enough of! Kreativ Wedding nailed it in capturing every detail of this gorgeous Tuscan wedding! The Couple: Dorien and Philippe The Wedding: Castello di Gabbiano, Tuscany, Italy Instead of organizing a big traditional wedding in our home country (Belgium), we chose to have an intimate and small wedding weekend in Italy with our best friends and family. We both enjoy life, very much enjoy traveling, and sitting down for dinner with a good glass of wine with our friends or family. As our guests all took the effort to come to Italy especially for our wedding — we are […]

If modern romance and rustic desert vibes are your things, get ready for Chelsea and Kyle’s wedding at The Paseo to take your breath away! As a nod to their time in the Czech Republic, the couple focused on creating a relaxed atmosphere and used simple yet stunning details to show off their personal style. Lace & a Barn helped the couple bring their timeless yet non-traditional wedding dreams to life with gorgeous desert-hued floral designs, and the creative duo added antique details to give a vintage look to their rustic Arizona venue. This special day was brimming with emotional moments and epic views, all of which Alayna G. Clark Photography captured so beautifully! The Couple: Chelsea and Kyle The Wedding: The Paseo, Apache Junction, Arizona We wanted our wedding to be authentic to our style and include our closest friends and family. We lived abroad in the Czech Republic together and loved the laid back style of their weddings, including having one witness in their bridal party instead of a large group of bridesmaids and groomsmen. We chose to have our dearest friend by each of our sides to witness and attest to our love. My MOH surprised me with the most gorgeous and sentimental […]
