Whimsical Pine Grove Wedding

From exchanging vows beneath the pine trees, to a laid-back reception complete with a bonfire, this whimsical affair is fit for a fairytale. With every detail meticulously handcrafted by the happy couple – from the garlands, to the photo booth back drop – the evening proved to be a true reflection of their love story. Josh Gooden Photo documented every beautiful bit, and you can see it all right here!

Whimsical

From Josh Gooden PhotoI was invited to photograph Kim & Nuno’s wedding at the lovely Roxbury Barn this past May and I was thrilled to document their love for one another. Everything about their day was absolute perfection: their sweet vows underneath the beautiful pine trees, a laid-back vibe to the day, and their meticulously handcrafted details. Being a talented artist, Kim designed her own invites, thank you cards, seating chart, table numbers, garlands, decorative curtains, wedding card signage, and photo booth back drop.

From the Newlyweds… We wanted our wedding to be a unique experience. We were interested in having a party that was all about love and the playfulness that both Nuno and I bring out in each other. We approached our guest signing book by turning it into an irreverent mad lib about finding your first love. I crafted and designed our own invites, thank you cards, seating chart, table numbers, garlands, decorative curtains, wedding card signage, and photo booth back drop. Instead of hiring a stranger to be or DJ and officiant we took a different route. Nuno made a playlist of our favorite tunes and we had my uncle give us away during the ceremony. We wrote his speech as well in keeping with a theme that we were making the night our own.

Both of us decided to have our wedding in the pine grove forest at the Roxbury Barn. It’s located in the Roxbury, NY and is a part of the Catskills. The landscape was gorgeous and reminded me of growing up in the vast forest landscapes of Washington state. Our venue was inviting unlike the sterile dance halls that typify these types of events. We were trying to add our own personality in every way we could from the soundtrack to the small details of the decorations. The night ended with a bonfire and it was an epic moment. Everyone was in awe. The pathways were adorned with lanterns and everyone carried sparklers to illuminate the darkness. It was a great cap to a singular evening that was tailor-fit to our taste.

Lush, Organic Destination Wedding in Provence

Greg Finck wedding never disappoints, but when you add the floral talents of Laetitia C. to the equation? You, my dear, have got Provence nuptial perfection right at your fingertips. Designed with a natural, beautifully organic aesthetic, it’s a day that plays off its South of France setting and the results are a destination wedding done so, so right.

From Greg Finck PhotographyLe Mas de la Rose is a hidden gem in the heart of Provence, surrounded by olive groves and lavender fields. That is in that elegant though intimate typical Provence venue that Fabienne and Carlo had decided to tie the knot. Fabienne is from Switzerland and Carlo from the US, but they had decided to organize a destination wedding by themselves in the South of France. To delight their guests and enjoy the Provence easy lifestyle.

Stationery had been designed by the groom’s brother, and were in a variation of green and grey, which has been the color palette during the whole day. Laetitia C., who is now a friend, has once more done her magic on floral design. Fantastic flowers arrangements were everywhere, from the ceremony to the reception, and were all beautifully designed in a soft green color palette. The bouquets were elegant but not too strict, to reflect the organic and natural side of the region.

The ceremony has probably been one of the most emotional I’ve had the occasion to live this year. The officiant was one of the groom’s best friend and it was difficult not to drop a tear when Fabienne and Carlo exchanged their vows, in the presence of Max, Carlo’s son.

The cocktail was yummy with typical Provence food, including ‘tapenade’ (black olive paste) and regional vegetables, as Le Mas de la Rose grows its own vegetables in the garden. Dinner was similar with amazing organic Provence food and fine wine. The party last until the end of the night, when the bride and groom surprised their guests with an ice cream cart.

Whimsical Pink Wedding San Ysidro Ranch

Y’all know we go weak at the knees for a San Ysidro Ranch affair, but when it happens to include a pro golfer Groom and his designer Bride? Well, let’s just say we were smitten from the get-go. Fiore Beauty ensured all eyes were on the Bride, while fuchsia floral crowns and flirty accents set the scene. With a pretty palette, and details galore – Samuel Lippke Studios captured a gallery that defines pretty.

From Samuel Lippke StudiosWe just adore Kristy & Scott’s wedding! Scott is on the PGA tour as one of the youngest professional golfers & Kristy worked as a designer for Ralph Lauren before moving to POLO, where she met the love of her life while getting him sponsored! These stunning newlyweds were a breeze for Samuel to photograph – they both looked amazing and their love for each other is effortless and beautiful. The two were so laid back that even when a power outage threatened their reception, they didn’t even mind; candlelight dinners are always more romantic anyway, right? We definitely agree.

We were blown away by how beautiful San Ysidro Ranch was & the florals by BloomBox enhanced it so well. We love the deep fuchsia flowers BloomBox used for the bridemaids’ floral crowns. As always, Samuel loved working with the planning gurus from Details Details; Chelsea Navran was an amazing coordinator. Put all of that work together with Kristy’s Oscar de la Renta dress, Scott’s Hugo Boss suit, & the bridesmaids’ colorful M Missoni dresses and you have one amazing event!
