Happy hump day friends and fans! I have some big news to share with y’all, but I’m holding off on sharing it until later this week. It’s not good, it’s not bad, it’s just, big. So, while you are all anxious on the edges of your seat, I’ll share with you a few gorgeous photos from Tommy & Robin’s big day in Texas, submitted by Kim Maguire Photography via Two Bright Lights.
Tommy and Robin were wedded at Camp Lucy in Dripping Springs, Texas on July 2nd. She wore a GORGEOUS mermaid gown with an ornate floral & crystal belt. Her colors were white, light pink with a hint of green and she carried a stunning all white bouquet of tea roses and peonies with a bright blue brooch. I’m dying over the details but one of my favorite shots is of the rings. Don’t worry, I’ll show y’all that one 🙂
and my favorite ring shot, EVER!
How cute is that?!
Oh Monday. I can’t complain about the weather, but the rest of my life is sort of a jumbled mess lately. I’m not going to go into full details, I’m just having some issues sorting through some stuff. With that, if you see that I’m a little quiet over here or not as enthused or perky as I normally am, understand that I still love y’all and will hopefully shake what’s going on soon.
However, I will not let my sour mood take over today because I have to share the rest of the perfectly vintage, seaside Laguna wedding I teased you with last week! There’s no easier way to put a smile on my face and ignite a warm spark in my heart than with a vintage lace gown, a gorgeous cathedral veil and a view overlooking the sea. Julie and Eric were married on July 20th at the Laguna Cliff’s Marriot in Dana Point, California. Her veil and cap are vintage pieces given to her by her grandmother. Her bridesmaids worn champagne colored gowns and carried pink, purple and ivory bouquets. Eric and his groomsmen wore purple bow ties and tuxes. What I love about this wedding was how simple, yet completely elegant it was. They had a simple white, classical wedding cake and had minimal decorations. But with a gorgeous view over Laguna, you don’t need much do you? The photos were submitted by the amazing Deborah Huber Photography via Two Bright Lights.
Isn’t her veil and floral cap absolutely gorgeous? It was passed down to her from her grandmother.
Happy Thursday! It’s finally a beautiful, sunny morning here in DC so my spirits are very high! Plus, it’s one day closer to the weekend! I have some super fun (yep, i said that) fall activities lined up for Saturday! My friend and I are going outlet shopping, winery tasting and then going to a haunted house! Wee! It’s really kind of awkward how much I love fall and Halloween.
I could blab your ears off about fall and Halloween, but I’d much rather show you a wedding that has me GIDDY with excitement. A vintage inspired bride, glittery belt and a venue overlooking the bay? Yes, please! Julie wore a gorgeous, vintage inspired all lace gown with cap sleeves and had soft, finger curls in her hair. The wedding was in Dana Point California at the picturesque Laguna Cliff Marriot, which overlooks the gorgeous Laguna bay area. Oh and the men had on purple bow ties. How CUTE!

Stay tuned for the rest of this beautifully vintage, seaside wedding!
Oh, Monday. I’m having a rough day already. But, I suspect it will perk up, especially after I’m done looking at these adorable DIY wedding pictures.
Ashley and Mark wed at Mark’s family home in Raleigh, North Carolina. What I love most about this wedding is how personal, understated and comfortable it is. They wanted just a simple wedding surrounded by the people they love most. Ashley carried a classic bouquet in green, yellow and white and carried those colors throughout the rest of the reception. Her favorite food, peanut butter and jelly, was also featured in the adorable hor’s devours. Plus, their “how I met” story is absolutely heart melting. Thank you Sarah of Whitmeyer photography for sharing this adorable wedding! [All images submitted via Two Bright Lights].
Ashley and mark were introduced by Ashley’s cousin, Tracy, who lived across the street from Mark. Tracy kept telling Mark, “Ashley is your future wife” and continued to tell Ashley, “Mark is your future husband”. Both Ashley and Mark brushed Tracy’s remarks off without knowing that Tracy was speaking the truth! When the two finally met, Mark walked up to Ashley and said, ” I guess I should introduce myself to my future wife!!” And low and behold….the two were wedded at Mark’s Parent’s home in Raleigh on September 10th!
Happy Tuesday, friends! I apologize for leaving you on the edge with my sneak peek of this adorable wedding but life has been busy! But have no fear, I have the rest of the GORGEOUS photos here with some words from the beautiful bride.
The April 30th ceremony took place at the St. Helena Catholic church, with a reception directly following at the Charles Krug Winery. I’ve always been a sucker for classical vineyard weddings and this one is definitely one of the prettiest I’ve seen. The pale pink peonies with the white, ivory bouquets were simple, yet glamorous and the centerpieces, place cards and props matched the natural, rustic chic vibe of the venue. One of my FAVORITE parts of this wedding doesn’t have anything to do with the decor. This couple is SO adorable. They are whimsical, fun and visibly madly in love. Couples like this are why I love weddings. They understand it’s a serious event, but you need to be YOU and have the whole thing represent that. Okay enough of my blabbing, lets look at some pretty pictures courtesy of the talented Lori Paladino photography.
The wedding planning process was certainly daunting at first. We really wanted it to be a classic, timeless affair and we kept that in mind as we were searching for all of our vendors starting with our wonderful wedding planner, Amy Thumhart! She had worked on my brother’s wedding so we decided to build on that relationship and invite her to make the magic happen for our wedding. From then on, we gathered a team of vendors who were absolutely amazing every step of the way. I could not thank them enough after the wedding day.
Holy, blow your mind. This wedding I’m about to show you is amazing. I’m having the hardest time picking just three images to show you. I had all of these intentions to talk purses today but as soon as I peeped in my Two Bright Lights inbox, I knew I couldn’t let this one sit.
The bride, Katie, is absolutely gorgeous and you can see how truly in love she is with her (now) husband, David. Oh, and they are probably the cutest couple I’ve ever seen. Plus, the reception was held at the Carriage House at Charles Krug Winery in picture perfect St. Helena, California. The bridesmaids were soft blue gowns and carried bouquets of pastel pinks and yellows, which were colors Katie carried out in her recepoion decor as well. Now that I’ve painted a visual, I’m going to share a few sneak peeks of this INCREDIBLE wedding shot by the crazy talented Lori Paladino photography.
Seriously, could they BE any cuter? Can’t wait to share the rest tomorrow!
It’s WEDNESDAY! Weee! The sun is shining and the temperature is PERFECT! Plus, it’s only 2 days until the weekend and I’m happily staying put! But those aren’t the only reasons for my excitement. I have the rest of the gawgggeous June Canadian wedding I teased you with on Monday! In addition to more beautiful photos, I have their adorable story to share, as told by the bride! All photos are courtesy of Ella Photography.
Danny and I have been together for 9 years, but I’ve known him for 20. Candice and I have been best friends forever so we all grew up together. I knew him completely before we started dating so it was a very easy transition for us anyways. I went from being Candice’s best friend to dating her brother!!! You can see how that may have been a bit weird in the beginning, but everyone came around pretty fast. They wanted the best for both of us si why not have us be happy together! Continue reading
