Between the Sequin Gown, String Lights, and Sunlight, this Intimate Normandy Wedding Positively Glowed
May 18, 2019 by Khoi Nguyen in Wedding 0 Comments

Beth and Marcus’ Normandy wedding was the garden party of our wildest dreams! The couple held their intimate celebration at a cozy French Airbnb, which allowed them to set up a ceremony space nestled among the trees and organize a picnic-style reception amid the lush, overgrown gardens. Their decor centered around twinkle lights, dream catchers, boho rugs and pillows, and simple garlands of eucalyptus, and the result was truly captivating. The bride wore a stunning sequin Needle & Thread gown that sparkled from every angle and the groom looked dashing in an emerald ASOS suit that was the perfect combination of modern and timeless. Photographers Eastlyn & Joshua truly captured the dream-like vibes of this Normandy wedding, and even took us along on the couple’s romantic day-after adventure at the Cliffs of Etretat! The Couple: Beth and Marcus The Wedding: Airbnb, Normandy, France There are so many memories that stand out from the day, but writing letters to each other and then reading them whilst I was in the bath is the clearest one. Eastlyn & Joshua, our photographers, advised us to find the time in the day before the ceremony to take in the moment. Clasping each other’s hands and whispering together in the silence felt […]

The Couple: Haley and Andrew The Wedding: Gold Mountain Golf Club, Bremerton, Washington The most important thing to us was keeping it true to who we are!

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 […]

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 Ultimate Guide to Planning Your Rehearsal Dinner
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.
