From CLY By MatthewLindsay and Ben got married at the Bowery Hotel this June. They were a fun and playful couple. They were ready to have a great time with their friends and family and were just upbeat throughout the whole day. While Lindsay was getting ready, her mom was there the whole time helping Lindsay look the best on her most special day. Lindsay also wore her mom’s veil, which was very meaningful for her. Their gorgeous chuppah with a candle lit ceremony was so magical. After the ceremony, I also followed them to their room to capture their intimate moment where they were toasting to become Mr. and Mrs. for the first time. It was such a sweet moment!

From the details of the bride’s amazing Carolina Herrera dress to the breathtaking floral design by Designs by Ahn, it was such a beautiful and romantic wedding.

From Julia Wade… Dear friends. She’s married. My beautiful, baby sister. Jeffrey Kruger gave a TED talk in Asheville in 2011 and in it he spoke about the profound, lifelong bond siblings can have. He submits that siblings are a rich, fertile ground for lasting relationships, because truly they are the only people who walk almost your entire life with you.

Sarah, I love you and I so deeply happy that you have found the love of your life. And I am so grateful to walk this life with you as your sister and as your friend.

We created these images for her in Salt Lake City.. our home town.

From Ann & Kam Photography & CinemaI knew I liked Rachel from the first time we talked—her easy laughter and kind nature came through even on the telephone. Then I had the pleasure of a little phone call from her mom, when I really fell in love with their whole family. It was easy to feel how much this family loves and cares for each other, and I was in love with them for it. Aaron and Rachel seem to be the perfect fit – laughing often, affectionate, caring, smart, fun, easy going. I could go on and on, obviously! We’ve been looking forward to their wedding for a year, and I am still smiling even as I edit their collection!

Rachel and Aaron’s day was a delight because of the wonderful people involved, but it was also flawlessly beautiful. The Chicago History Museum was the site for the ceremony and reception, and provided a stunning setting, as always. I am still swooning over the gorgeous florals by Life in Bloom and Rachel’s Carolina Herrera gown. Five Grain Events planned the day to perfection, and the David Rothstein Band kept the party rocking all night. Truly, a perfect day.

Whimsical + Playful Malibu Wedding With a Ferris Wheel

As a little girl, this gorgeous Bride (who owns The Printed Palette with her handsome Groom) used to dress up in her aunt’s wedding dress and dream of her perfect day, which always included a ferris wheel and cotton candy. Years later her dream came true with help from Amorology, and as a result, we have so many pretty pictures from Acqua Photo to pin! From the jade green Weddington Way bridesmaids’ dresses (yes, that’s Tenley from “The Bachelor!”) to the Bride’s ruffly Lazaro gown for JLM Couture and the furniture from Pretty Vintage Rentals, everything about this day makes us smile. See it all here.

Whimsical

From AmorologyWhen there is a Ferris wheel and a cute couple who happen to be the proud owners of The Printed Palette, we knew that we were in for a great wedding! This wedding brought out the essence of good ol’ fashion fun and a sweet side courtesy of Bon Puf cotton candy cart and countless other treats. We loved working with this darling couple and even got to spend time with one of our favorites; bridesmaid Tenley Molzahn, from The Bachelor. There were so many playful details of this wedding from lawn games and a Photo Booth, to lots of DIY details that we had such an amazing time styling. Beautiful blooms from Plenty of Petals brought the tables to life and fun printed place-mats from Paper Source added a touch of metallic to pair with the mid century wood tables from Circa Rentals. Acqua Photo was there to capture all of the best and touching moments!

From the beautiful Bride… Kurt and I were high school acquaintances who each had a significant other when we met. He tells me now that he always thought I was the prettiest girl in high school. We reconnected in January 2005 on Myspace. He lived in San Diego and I was “finding myself” in between my parents house in Redlands and my best friend’s dorm in Fullerton. I fearlessly invited him to hang out at my friends house one night and to Disneyland the next day. I asked him what his favorite dessert was and he told me “Apple Crisp” so I went and bought him one of those obnoxious candles in that very scent. When he arrived to my friend’s house that night, I immediately had butterflies and couldn’t get over how tall and handsome he was. After an hour or so, I handed him the candle and told him that I was only going to give it to him if I liked him. Without realizing it, I had spilled the beans about how I felt. He teases me about it to this day, but I know that’s what won him over.

We went to Disneyland the next day and that is when we started to fall in love. After about a year of an on-again-off-again long distance relationship, Kurt asked me to move to San Diego to help him run a new screen printing business he was dreaming up. Without hesitation and in what seemed like almost immediately, I was packing my bags. We spent another six years running our custom screen printing business and going back and forth from BF/GF to “just friends” all while living together and business partnering together. I know. The business we were in was a very hard business in our given economy and left us little room to be creative. At the beginning of 2012 I decided we needed a change. I started to sketch and design my own designs for clothing. Within minutes of realizing this was going somewhere I named our new business “The Printed Palette”. This business was a new beginning for not only us as individuals but for us as a couple. We finally started to leave the stress behind and give our relationship the attention and chance it deserved. And it worked this time!

Kurt surprised me with a trip to the California Redwoods. He took me on a hike up a national park called “Wedding Rock”. It was truly the most beautiful vision of redwoods and the ocean crashing against the coast. Kurt asked a man to take our photo and walked up to grab his phone back from him after he snapped it. Kurt isn’t a fan of asking people to take pictures, so I remember thinking, “Wow this must be a special occasion.” And then he asked for another one “just in case.”  As I promptly fixed my hair I leaned to pose with him and I looked over to find him on one knee. “I want to ask you to marry me?” After nearly ten years, you can imagine I was pretty emotional. And with happy tears in my eyes on the beautiful coast of California, I said YES!!!

We are a fun, flirty couple with a “two heads are better than one” dynamic. We own a Lifestyle Brand called The Printed Palette. We wanted our wedding to be a reflection of our brand and showcase our playful relationship. Together, we designed and created all of the wooden signs, lawn games, and send off flags. We wanted our wedding day to be filled with all the trimmings of a celebration: balloons, confetti, and tons of love! My aunt told me at the wedding that I used to dress up in her wedding gown and say, “One day I will have a ferris wheel and cotton candy at my wedding.” And ironically I had forgotten what the child in me had always known.

I was inspired by my two favorite colors, peach and sea foam blue, and then adding a pop of jade green to tie the whole wedding together—I loved how it turned out! One of my visions for this day was to have an arbor that we could repurpose into a Photo Booth backdrop. Kurt was able to turn my vision into a reality and brought this backdrop to life by screen printing “Best Day Ever” on one side which guests saw as they entered and “Happily Hummel” on the other side which guests saw as we exited down the aisle as newlyweds and it rained confetti! This was one of our favorite DIY projects.

From the Bride… Brian and I met during my second year of college at the University of Georgia. His sister, Emily, and I became friends while living in the same dorm our freshman year and the following year Brian and his parents came down to Athens to visit. After a group dinner where Brian and I met and discovered our mutual love for food, I knew he was special. We spent the next two years in a long distance relationship flying back and forth between Maryland and Georgia. One of our favorite things to do when I would visit him was to go to Annapolis. We would spend hours walking around and sitting on the benches down at city dock and eventually that became the exact place where Brian got down on one knee and proposed over five years later! Between our love for Annapolis and the fact that Brian grew up across the Bay Bridge on the Eastern Shore, where we spent countless weekends, we knew we wanted to get married somewhere near the water. We chose to get married at Chesapeake Bay Beach Club after falling in love with the gorgeous views! There aren’t enough words to describe how incredible our wedding day was and how much it meant to us to have our family and closest friends there to celebrate with us. From the delicious seafood to the Dolle’s caramel popcorn, Smith Island Cakes and country music, our wedding truly captured Brian and I as a couple. One of the most special things for me was that I got to wear the same beaded belt around my dress that my two best friends wore during each of their weddings. All of our vendors went above and beyond to make our day so special and we can’t thank them enough! I honestly don’t think I’ve ever smiled, giggled, or felt as much pure joy and happiness as much as I did throughout the day!
