Hotel Del Coronado Wedding by Jasmine Star

People.  Have I got a wedding for you today.  Sent in by the fabulous and inspirational Jasmine Star, this wedding has captured my heart.  You all know I'm a big fan of not overdoing it; there's nothing better than keeping it simple and meaningful.  And our bride Sarah and I seem to be on the same page.  This girl went through a lot to get to her wedding day, including having to postpone the date due to sickness, so to see her...

Solage Calistoga Wedding by Sylvie Gil

I've got a gorgeous little wedding for you today, straight outta Cali and shot by the fabulous Sylvie Gil.  But first let me ask: have I ever shared that I love hydrangeas?  Because I do.  I grew up with them in my backyard and danced around them, half-naked, as a baby.  My baby friends were doing it too, so it's not like I was some weird baby or something.  (Because I wasn't.)  But the hydrangeas in this wedding bring...

Classic Southern Wedding by SimplyBloom

Whenever I get a new wedding from the ladies of Simply Bloom Photography, I know I'm in for some eye-popping prettiness.  Each and every wedding Vania and Christine send my way exudes this soft, romantic glow, and I always have this overwhelming desire to step inside the photos and be a part of the action.  Today's outdoor affair is no exception.  The gorgeous pastels and naturally occurring floral decor of Amber and...

Outdoor Vintage Wedding by Katy Gray

This wedding has captured my heart.  First off, it was shot by the hyper-talented and super awesome Katy Gray of Katy Gray Photography.  Now, as if that wasn't enough, the wedding of Larissa and Brett is so chock full of homespun details and decor, it's hard not to get sentimental about the whole thing.  Just listen: her mom and grandma each had a hand in the invitations; his family helped out with the program fans and wooden signs...

Rustic Wedding at Spanish Oaks Ranch

Hello, lovelies!  I am SO into the wedding I've got for you today.  Amber and Sean were wed in one of the most exquisite natural settings ever, and I adore the way the love and happiness of the day shines so brightly through each and every sun-kissed image their amazing photographer, Ken Kienow, captured.  You know what else I love?  The fact that the bride was so inspired by her venue that she designed the affair entirely around its...

A Romantic Portuguese Wedding by BrancoPrata

I am really excited today, because I get to introduce you to Sofia and André, the amazing, hyper-talented and nicer than your Mother (depending on the Mother) team behind the incredible force of BrancoPrataSofia and I go way back - not like me and Mariah go back to baby and pacifiah - but back far enough to know that she's the bee's knees and her right-hand man, André...

Celebration of Spring Inspiration Shoot by Carmen Salazar

Oh inspiration shoots, how I love thee.  Let me count the ways: I adore your antique bird cages, your layered personal cakes, your colorful colorfulness, your avant-garde nature-infused hair accessories, your nest inspired couture floral rings, and your teal and yellow bumble bee ties.  How you inspire me to go forth and create my own inspiration shoots, in my bedroom, with my sticker collections that I've had since I was five, and my pretty little Anthro dresses, and my Betty Crocker cake...

Hoffman Haus Wedding by Anne Marie Photography

I'm a detail kind of girl.  You dig?  I imagine many of you do, given your likely penchant for a site like Abby's, here.  (:  But seriously, details RULE.  They are the measure of relationships, in my estimation and, while I don't hold anyone to a standard insofar as weddings go, I LOOOOVE me a good close-up shot or cleverly thought out embellishment.  What else do I love?  Well, cowboy boots, pinwheels, bocce ball games and elaborate bridal suite wall paintings, for starters.  And...

Portland, Oregon Wedding by Jessica Hill

This has got to be the coolest freaking wedding I've seen in ages.  There are skulls involved.  Skulls.  Cuff link skulls, but skulls, nonetheless.  And amaaaaazing jewelry, and blow-ya-mind invitation suites, and from-the-heart vows, and EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS WEDDING RULES.  Thank you, Jessica Hill, for bringing such photographic awesomeness to my day!!  Seriously, the eye candy going on here is astonishing.  It's...

Savannah, Georgia Wedding by SimplyBloom Photography

Ok, get comfortable my friends, 'cause you're in for a treat.  Now, my calendar says it's mid-May, but I've had to rely on the heater under my desk for warmth, it's been so chilly.  However, when two of my favorite ladies, Vania and Christine of SimplyBloom Photography sent this wedding my way, I was so excited by what I saw that I turned the thing off.  This wedding was all I needed to warm me right up!  I don't know if...

Pretty in Pink Wedding by Kim Le

Got room for a preciously pink wedding?  Ha, I don't even know why I ask.  When Kim Le sent me this wedding, my eyes started watering... literally.  It wasn't just the pictures that excited me; the real tearjerker comes in the form of what Grant, the groom, had to say about the day and, more importantly, about his bride, Cylie Lyn.  Scout's honor, I fell into a puddle on the floor when I read his words...

Wellington, South Africa Wedding by Jan Hendrik

When I first saw this wedding by Jan Hendrik, I started hyperventilating like a tween at a Justin Bieber concert.  I seriously have a debilitating crush on every little nook and cranny of fresh, clean inspiration this ravishing wedding has to offer!  Each and every incredible detail makes my heart beat a little faster.  The simple yet stunning color palette is GLORIOUS.  The bride's sleek, classic, unadorned gown made of white denim...

Ritz Carlton Wedding by Amelia Lyon

When Amelia Lyon sent me this UNBELIEVABLE cream-colored dream of a wedding, which took place at the oh so divine Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel... well, I just about died.  No, seriously.  That's how fabulously BREATHTAKING it is.  Amelia's photography regularly has me perched on the very edge of my seat with my eyeballs 10 inches from the screen, hyper-focused on her rich, radiant imagery.  But, oh my, THIS WEDDING... it is pure...

Backyard Wedding by Gia Canali, II

I happen to be a HUGE fan of backyard weddings - they have such an intimate nature to them that always gives me those warm fuzzies!  (Granted, you and your family will be left with hundreds of tiny stiletto punctures in your lawn, but what a small price to pay, wouldn't you agree?) And although I've never met this featured couple, photographed by Gia Canali, I believe I'd adore them; those inflatable swans, alone, likely speak volumes...
