Real Wedding: Ashley and Matt, VI

For me, the sign of a great wedding is one where you can just tell the bride is having fun. Today's beautiful bride, literally kicked off her shoes and danced the night away...a complete party! I love that.

Real Wedding: Ashley and Matt, IV

Here are few more tidbits from today's featured wedding...

From Kate Triano, the oh-so-talented photographer that captured these joy filled images...

The light coming in during the ceremony was perfect. The room had soft candlelight and beautiful chandeliers as well. Once Ashley's Dad walked her down the aisle, Ashley kissed Matt. It was such a sweet beginning to the ceremony!

Love, love, loving today's real wedding...filled with gorgeous jewel-toned details, a perfect bride and an eclectic wedding style. It's really refreshing to see a bride completely embrace her own style and design a wedding that envelops who she and her fiance are as a couple.

Kate Triano sent us this gorgeous wedding and if you haven't already totally fallen for her style, you will after you see this next round...

Real Wedding: Ashley and Matt, II

I knew the shoes on the last post would get everyone excited...but, for me, it's the absolutely lovely bride and her eclectic, vintage chic style that really soars in this wedding. She just seems like the kind of girl that I would want to be friends with...one who has her own sense of style, her own unique perspective.

By the way, the shoes were actually bought on the fly from a clearance rack at DSW! Again, SO the kind of girl that I want to be friends with!

Real Wedding: Ashley and Matt

Today's wedding is a little off the beaten path of what I normally feature on SMP, with a jewel-toned color palette and a chic vintage style, but I thought it was so beautiful that I just had to share. Plus, the bride is just so ridiculously gorgeous, it's hard not to fall in love with her!

Ashley and Matt were married this past November at The Homestead in Hot Springs, Virginia. She wore a Marisa gown from Jeanettes...

As promised, here is a real life look at today's featured wedding. The AMAZINGLY talented Andy Jackson of Portal Films shot it using 16 mm film and I have to say, it's drop-your-jaw gorgeous. The clip only reminds me of just how much I love his work. His ridiculously beautiful work...

Thank you so much to Andy for putting this together. It's such a treat to see a wedding truly come to life! If...

Real Wedding: Jennifer and Trey, V

I get emails here and there from brides who are looking to design a super chic wedding with their ceremony in a traditional church but with there reception in kind of a fun/funky spot. Well, that is just what today's bride did! I know that in many parts of the country, it's hard to find those great farms, the incredible seaside resorts, the modern lofts and the lakeside estates that we often feature on SMP. But, I will tell you this...EVERY town has hidden gems that are definitely worth...

Real Wedding: Jennifer and Trey, IV

I have to say, the best part about today's wedding is probably the ridiculously great reception that the couple threw. But, the ceremony details are pretty gorgeous too, so I wanted to share a few more photographs of those before we dive into the party! photographs by the oh-so-talented Frank Becker and Sarah Jane of The Time Photography More to come!

Real Wedding: Jennifer and Trey, III

There is just something lovely about infusing your wedding with traditional touches. I know that we try to feature really unique details on SMP, ideas that push the boundaries of what a wedding "should" be, but...sometimes, it's those timeless touches that really make a wedding beautiful... photographs by the oh-so-talented Frank Becker and Sarah Jane of The Time Photography From the bride...

Today's wedding, in Lexington, Kentucky is all about traditional charm...with a twist of course! photographs by the oh-so-talented Frank Becker and Sarah Jane of The Time Photography From the bride...

Real Wedding by Jen Fariello, IV

Let me tell you what I love about Jen Fariello, the photographer behind today's great wedding. There is nothing fussy about her photographs. Each image is shot with a clarity that I crave...where you can see the absolute joy in a bride's eye, the sweet details that make a wedding unique, the unabashed happiness in a mother's face. She shoots each wedding as if it's the first she's seen and the result is usually magic.

For more eye candy and inspiration you HAVE to check out...

Thank goodness for Jen Fariello. Since we had to pull today's earlier wedding, I am loving Jen even more than I did before, as I just happened to have this absolutely lovely wedding sitting in my inbox. So I guess that I can say, Jen saved the day!

Gotta love the Pabst Blue Ribbon...adds that touch of Mountain charm that the couple was really going for! More to come!
