At the very top of this couple’s wedding wish-list? A non-traditional celebration full of heart, love and family. In lieu of a first look or formal schedule they chose to take the day slow and share in the little moments with their darling baby boy. To cap off the evening, they treated their guests to a candlelit dinner in a wine cave plus a gorgeous dessert by Sweet On Cake. Head to The Vault for even more captured by The Edges.

From The Edges Wedding Photography… Libby & Ross wanted a more un-traditional wedding. They got ready together on the day with their new baby, Everette. There wasn’t a big reveal or first look, just a sweet moment with the three of them. Guests arrived to a cocktail hour before the ceremony. They were able to chill out and relax on the lounge furniture and enjoy the sunshine and a drink before the festivities began.
What we loved is that the couple was very casual with the timing of the ceremony – they just decided when it felt right to start and the little ones dropped flowers on the ground as guests surrounded them in a circle. Afterwards was another cocktail hour before being seated for dinner.
Since this was a destination wedding, it gave everyone lots of time to interact and enjoy each other’s company. Dinner was served in a wine cave with lots of candles. Even the band they hired was unique – a blue grass/country band from Austin, TX. It was truly a special day and shows how you can celebrate in a way that is unique to who they are as a couple.

No lie, I literally made a Sephora run the day before my wedding to find a skin matching foundation. Stressful? You bet. Life changing? Completely. For years I’d been faking an overly tinted face which didn’t necessary match my Irish white skin tone and once I’d found my perfect shade well, it was a total game changer. Which is why we’ve asked TEAM Hair & Makeup, to help you get a jumpstart on finding the perfect foundation color for your skin well before the rehearsal dinner. Press play to learn more!

You know her from roles on our favorite shows like One Tree Hill, Grey’s Anatomy and All My Children, but today Leven Rambin is stepping into the role of bride with a look inside her autumn wedding to Jim Parrack (a.k.a . Hoyt from True Blood.) Taking cues from the venue, Leven and Jim’s planner, Something To Celebrate designed a day infused with European-style elegance and Heather Curiel came on board to capture. Consider your wedding plans infinitely inspired, and pin every bit inside The Vault.
From the Bride, Leven… I really wanted my wedding to have an ethereal, bohemian elegance to it. I was so inspired and elated once I found the venue, Le San Michele in the tiny town of Buda, Texas. Virginia, the owner, has turned her home and property into an adorable, unique, modern shabby church paradise with hints of European elegance. I immediately fell in love with all the lighting fixtures she had in the trees and the Moroccan lamps that scatters the property. The gardens added a romantic feel, too.
I wanted earthy Pastel tones more appropriate for a spring wedding, but I didn’t care! I knew exactly what I wanted down to every detail and my planners and florists nailed it. When I arrived, my breath was taken away at how accurately they were able to make my vision come to life! It was small and intimate and absolutely perfect.
The Karaoke on the back patio after a delicious dinner was SUCH a hit! We sang, danced, and partied until the wee hours! Numerous guests have told me it was the best and most beautiful wedding they’d ever been to, and that it was like a fairytale! And that’s exactly what I was going for, so I’m very happy!
