Fate Brought These Two Together – And They Celebrated With Fireworks!

They attended the same high school and college, but never met until post graduation, when both were in Chicago. With the groom’s brother playing matchmaker, it all came together and before they knew it, they were saying “I do” back where it all could have started, in Tucson, Arizona. And back at their hometown, they celebrated in a BIG way – with Black Sheep Filmworks capturing the chic style, the sweet kisses and even the fireworks! See it all right this way!

From Black Sheep FilmworksOh, Annie and Sean…so swoon-worthy! From that incredible Monique Lhuillier wedding gown, to those red-soled Christian Louboutin’s for BOTH bride and groom, to suspended floral rings to FIREWORKS, Annie and Sean had one of the most chock full of “eye candy” weddings ever.

Annie and Sean both grew up in Tucson, attended Sabino High School, and the University of Arizona… and NEVER met each other! They both moved to Chicago after graduating from the U of A and it was Sean’s brother that introduced them. Sean stated that he was “Going to marry that girl” after their first date, so obviously, fate finally stepped in and these two gorgeous Tucson lovebirds finally found each other!

Love letters that Annie and Sean had written to each other were opened on the day, and read aloud, privately. This was incorporated into their highlight film, as per Annie’s request, and it really connects you to their love story. Not only are they beautiful, with great style, but they are “Oh-SO” in love. Their family and friends (close to 250 of them!) came from all across the globe to take part in this soirée.

Special touches filled Annie and Sean’s wedding. From red soled Christian Louboutin’s for both bride and groom, to the placement of a Mexican lasso during the ceremony, to a wishing tree instead of a guest book, no detail was overlooked. Sean even surprised Annie with fireworks during the reception. This was truly a gorgeous, spicy, “beaming smile” wedding… Bravo, Annie and Sean!!!

Rustic Romance Abounds With This Wedding Day Inspo

We hung out with some boho bridesmaids, had a romantic romp with these lovebirds and kept it simple and chic with this bridal shoot. And now, last but not least, is Jeremy Chou’s Tuscan inspired shoot from The Process Workshop. Rustic and intimate, this shoot captures a couple in love and the beautiful tablescape created by Cedarwood Weddings where they’ll toast to their happily ever after. But enough text – head to our Vault to see the good stuff!

From Jeremy ChouAs fresh and natural as Italian vineyards along the hills of Tuscany, the Cedarwood Weddings design team combined sophisticated and refined alfresco elements to create a dream destination wedding style in Nashville, TN. Bringing together sunny golden hues in peach, apricot, and butterscotch, the rich colored flowers and natural elements are sure to induce a daydream of sun-drenched meadows and rolling hills.

Clean lines reminiscent of vineyard vines in rows inspired simple but luxe table settings with modern gold flatware and pale green linen napkins contrasted by warm wood and tattered edge seating assignments tucked into the forks. Aged Tuscan urns act as statement bases to both the lush asymmetrical centerpiece and natural arch ceremony altar covered in foraged vines and sunny peach and apricot flowers.

The bride perfectly complements the overall aesthetic with a sophisticated long sleeve lace gown, sleek ponytail, and an unstructured bouquet of airy sunny tones finished off with hand dyed silk apricot ribbon from Honey Silk & Co.

A paper suite from Designs in Paper showcases vintage romance with gold foil details, hand torn edges, and a modern monogram gracing the envelope liner. To complete the look, a combed buttercream cake from Patty Cakes atop of gilded base and finished off with vines and blooms.

Simplicity + Sophistication Come Together In Style

There’s beauty in simplicity; we hear it time and time again. But well, some cliches are popular for a reason and this shoot proves just that. It’s Day 2 of our Process Workshop deep dive and this morning we have a styled shoot courtesy of Michael and Carina Photography. With Cedarwood Weddings once again making magic, it’s a treat for tired eyes. See every pretty pic in our Vault right this way!

From Michael and CarinaBeauty is often found in simplicity and inspired by Historic Ceadrwood’s grounds aged stone walkways and rolling meadows, the design team embraces refined natural beauty in a sophisticated palette of slate, white and greenery. A community style table set against the venue’s front hedge is lined with clear acrylic chairs and draped in grey linens. A graceful hand made foliage garland drapes off the table as a nod to the lush green surroundings found on this historic Southern estate. Pure and simple settings selected to focus on clean lines and natural beauty, accented by sophisticated white sage sprigs.

Cedarwood’s historic Southern front porch draped in greenery vines is the perfect clean backdrop for the bride’s portrait session. She is the epitome of refined beauty in her sleek, sophisticated silk gown and romantic updo.

Repeating the clean palette, an invitation suite from Designs in Paper in shades of grey is styled for photos using only simple white petals and glass atop grassy ground. To complete the style a simple single tier cake by Patty Cakes was accented with delicate dusty greens and a pure glass base.
