Napa Valley Wedding at Beaulieu Garden

I'll never forget the first wedding that we featured from photographer, Yvonne Wong. That wedding has become one of SMP's most loved affairs and I'm pretty sure that this next one will creep high up on your list of favs too. Sent to us by the beautiful bride and her equally dreamy hubs, it's Napa Valley at its finest, with pretty pops of color...

New South Wales Wedding by Tealily Photography

What I wouldn't give to be a guest at this gorgeous dream of a wedding. If only just to witness the crazy amount of love that is swirling around this entire event. Seriously, I think it is almost palpable during the snap shots of the first kiss. Trish Lee of Tealily Photography did a superb job of capturing the gorgeous couple, all the gorgeous details and lots and lots of gorgeous Aussie + Argentine love. Did I mention this...

Vintage Photo Shoot by Elizabeth Messina + Lisa Vorce + Mindy Rice

I am a bit at a loss for words for this next feature. Which is rare considering that I spend my life coming up with just the right words to describe every perfect wedding detail that we share on SMP. But this one is different. It's a collaboration between three people that are kind of like the Queens-of-All-Things-Gorgeous, and I literally dropped my jaw when I saw what they had come up with. Event designer Lisa Vorce of...

Timeless Savannah Wedding from Jose Ortiz Films

I like to think of Savannah as being beautifully timeless. Maybe it's the Spanish moss clinging to the old oak trees, or perhaps it's the slower pace of living. It could be the copious amounts of delicious sweet tea available. Whatever it is, Savannah's vintage charm was the perfect backdrop for this gorgeous wedding from Tricia Huddas & Co Events. The bride and groom drove off into the sunset in a classic 1956 Corvette, and we're...

This cute couple is the real deal and if their engagement session is any indication of what's to come, we can't wait to see their big day.

North Carolina Destination Wedding by Watson Studios

I love Dan and Natalie of Watson Studios. For many reasons, but on the top of my list is their ability to capture the very essence of the couple's personality in each and every wedding I've seen from them. So you know when they were asked to capture the wedding of their dear friend in the gorgeous mountains of North Carolina, it was going to be a good one. Well folks, it turned out better than good. It's all that is lovely about...

Eclectic Minneapolis Wedding from La Petite Fleur

I feel the need to preface this wedding with a warning that you may be searching for the nearest jazz lounge as soon as you finish taking everything in. This is definitely one of the coolest and most eclectic celebrations we've seen in a while. The bride wanted something fun and unique, and I'm positive she got it. A downtown Minneapolis ambiance, a sweet ceremony in a pasta bar, and a dark, jazzy reception in a sexy club are the ingredients to this striking wedding. They were even lucky...
