Sydney Wedding from Chanele Rose Flowers & Styling

Small weddings make such an impact on me that I actually get goose bumps when I look through the photos, and that's exactly what happened with this affair in Sydney. Watching the bride and groom get ready, knowing that 100% of their attention will be on each other is just so cool! Two of their closest friends attended, and you can tell that this intimate wedding will be one of the most special moments this friendship foursome will ever share. Cheers to them, and many thanks to ...

Hunter Valley Wedding from Gray Photography

Fun in the sun is great, but a gray and rainy day can surprise us and deliver the most spectacular atmosphere! Gray Photography (apropos name, huh?) proves it with the remarkable photos below. This couple embraced the weather conditions and absolutely shines through the mist and rain. And when you can't beat the wetness, why not join it? The bride and groom take a final plunge into the pool for a very cool trash the dress session!

Chicago Wedding at Architectural Artifacts from Ashley Biess Photography

I am always simply astounded by a dedicated DIY-inspired couple, and this bride and groom are no different. They brewed their own beer to make homemade gifts for guests, and they learned how to make letterpress stationery in their very own dining room! I am beyond impressed! The venue, Architectural Artifacts, offered the perfect place to turn their vision into a reality. I especially love the transformation of the ceremony...

Perth Engagement Session from Marc Ash Photography

At SMP, we absolutely love a good engagement shoot. Besides getting us super excited about wedding day, it is the perfect excuse to grab your honey and show the world what makes you two, well, you two! This couple takes the sweetest pictures together, looking totally natural and totally in love. We adore contrast between the bride-to-be's feminine white sun dress and the industrial backdrops. Marc Ash Photography captures it...

Chicago Wedding at Willis Tower from Kristin La Voie Photography

This wedding is a true tribute to the city of Chicago, topped off with model micro skyscrapers in lieu of floral tablescapes -- What a beyond cute and urban idea!! This couple trekked around the city prior to their ceremony to find the best Chicago backdrops and moments for their portraits, and BOY did they find them! Check out the lovely pictures below and a whole lot more in...

Pender Island Wedding from Jennifer Ballard Photography

I love when a wedding carries on in the most elegant of ways and then BAM -- a few fun, unique surprises pop up along the way! The couple's toast to their friends and family before the recessional during the ceremony is so touching, and a tower of mini donuts for dessert at the reception!? Yes, please! It's not hard to see why the bride and groom chose Pender Island in British Columbia for their nuptials. If I found myself on a gorgeous island with a winery, I'm not sure I'd ever leave! Check...

Vermont Wedding from AbiElaine Photography

The bride's radiant smile is ear to ear, and that's exactly how I feel about this wedding at Pond Pavilion at Equinox Resort & Spa. I get choked up when the father of the bride sees his daughter for the first time; I am obsessed with the furry four-legged ceremony participant, and I love, love, LOVE the tablescape combinations! Who'd ever think that rocks in water could be so romantic? Many thanks to ...

Austin Wedding from Ashley Garmon Photographers + Keely Thorne Events

Effortless elegance is the name of the game here, and my objects of obsession are the little burlap baggies filled with petals for guests to toss after the bride and groom kissed at the ceremony. Adorable!! And the pictures of this moment just sing with happiness! The couple used simple and classic white and off-white tones for their nuptials, and I couldn't imagine a more lovely indoor-outdoor reception site. See all of it and a whole lot more in...

Mississauga Wedding from Trost Photography

We at SMP love all sorts of special wedding themes and personal touches, but when a couple goes green, we get super excited to see what they can do while being extra kind to our planet! Eco-friendly couple Paula and Blair used post-consumer paper, hemp-based card stock, Goodwill and a dozen other repurposed and recycled items to keep their wedding as environmentally friendly as possible. On their wedding day, Mother Nature thanked them with beautiful sunshine and gorgeous surroundings. You...

Carlsbad Wedding at Leo Carillo Ranch from Captured by Aimee

This wedding is like a patchwork quilt of vintage goodies, romantic touches and contributions from family and friends! What screams vintage chic more than lace doilies, mismatched china, antique doors and mason jars? The homemade sweets are definitely a highlight, and the bridesmaid dresses and cowboy boots are such a perfect, flirty combo! Many thanks to Captured by Aimee for bringing this wedding to life in...

Chicago Wedding from Chernivsky Weddings

This couple prioritized their favorite things, and it just goes to show that if you're true to yourself and what you love, a beautiful wedding will develop no matter what! Inspired by their favorite cities, family treasures, religious upbringings and more, the bride and groom created a super fun day with unforgettable favors, food and a knock-your-socks-off dance party. The roof deck at the ...

Brisbane Engagement Session from Studio Impressions Photography

A dark, empty bar makes the perfect setting for half of this couple's engagement shoot, and hidden urban street corners make the perfect second half! The bride-to-be's feminine floral dress is the perfect counterpoint to the edgy surroundings, and I love the bright red tones in the bar. But, the truth is, if you take the setting out of each picture, this shoot would still be absolutely stunning, because this couple is so ADORABLE together! Congratulations to them, and many thanks to ...

Dandenongs Pre-Wedding Photo Session from Erin King Photographer

There are lots of things I adore about this pre-wedding shoot, but I have to say, this couple's outfit choices are absolutely to die for!  The colors, the bride's gorgeous dresses, the groom's bright patterned button downs -- These two are waaaay ahead on the fashion curve, and it's not too surprising since they co-run a Kenzo store. I wish I could take a couple styling lessons from them! And the shoot is romantic, playful and fashionable - just like the couple. Many thanks to ...

Hill Country Wedding at The Farm on Peach Creek from Mint Photography

This wedding reminds me of an outdoor festival....or carnival...or whatever makes it simply impossible not to have fun! Beautiful colors, paper garlands blowing in the breeze, and candy colored candlesticks make the perfect recipe for this crafty, DIY affair. Everyone took part in creating this masterpiece. Bridesmaids climbed trees to hang decorations; the mother of the groom made the table runners and groom ties, and the bride built the ceremony site. This was truly a labor of love! Thank...

Evanston Engagement Session from Jasmine Nicole Photography

This couple channeled their engagement story during their engagement shoot, which seems to me like the picture perfect way to honor popping the question! The groom-to-be played his guitar and sang a song for his bride-to-be before getting down on one knee. Throughout these photos, the two are singing that very same song with music from his guitar as accompaniment. And get this - he popped the question only two days before this shoot! The happiness is still so fresh in their eyes and...

Terrara Wedding from Nora Devai Photography

This wedding was designed to be every bride's dream! With an echo to vintage elegance, the reception was literally dripping with flowers, white lanterns and soft drapery. Check out the floral inspired tower of cupcakes and wedding cake sitting on the most adorable vintage, sterling silver stand! I love this dessert display, and I want a cupcake (or two)! The ceremony's understated garden beauty was the perfect way to get things started. ...

Ripponlea Wedding at Quat Quatta from Stewart Leishman Photography

The classic architecture and picturesque gardens of Quat Quatta have me totally enamored! What a beautiful backdrop for this sweet couple's wedding day. With bubble confetti, a mix of cultures, and an elegant atmosphere, this couple rang in their nuptials in style. A cultural highlight for me is the Chinese character signifying "double happiness" that was incorporated into the tablescape design. What's better than happiness? Double...

Hamilton Island Wedding at Outrigger from Kelly Tunney Photographer

An island wedding, tooling around on golf carts with pals (and champagne!), a mid-wedding surprise sunset cruise and tons of fun...Does it get any better than that!? I think not! This couple created a glamorous and unforgettable affair, but I suppose we shouldn't be too surprised since the bride is a designer. She certainly shows off her stupendous skills in the full gallery of images, which you simply must check...

Chicago Engagement Session from elle rose photo

I don't know which to obsess over first -- The amazing chemistry between these two or their oh so adorable puppy!! Looking like they just walked out of a J. Crew catalog, this couple is glowing and makes Chicago look like a serious destination spot. Those photos by the water with the cityscape in the background? Breathtaking!! Check out the full gallery of photos right here thanks to the amazing work of ...
