Ojai Wedding from Lacie Hansen

At face value, this wedding is wildly gorgeous. Bright colors and detailed traditions are literally dancing across the images by Lacie Hansen. But once you dig a little deeper into this blend of cultures, it holds even more beauty. Beauty that is laced throughout the groom's poetic description of a chance meeting that resulted in the ultimate happy day and in the true emotion behind all those pretty details crafted by ...

Ireland Wedding from Brosnan Photographic

The best way to celebrate St. Paddy's Day, in my book, is to get cozy with a destination wedding in the birthplace of green-loving festivities. Ireland is, without a doubt, one of the most gorgeous landscapes for marrying. There's an old world charm that can't be beat and when you add a wildly gorgeous Bride to the mix - one who looks like she stepped right out of a Jane Austen novel - the result is a day woven with elegance and simple beauty as seen through the lens of ...

Rhode Island North Beach Clubhouse Wedding from Erin McGinn Photography

There are so many things tucked into this beautiful Rhode Island affair (captured by the oh-so-lovely Erin McGinn) I want to gush over, I barely know where to start. But I think I have to start with the dress. That breathtakingly beautiful Claire Pettibone piece of art. Or maybe I should start with the two adorable bow-tie wearing boys who now can officially call each other...

Tuscany, Italy Wedding from Studio Impressions Photography

I am not sure what could enhance a love story more than the rolling hills of Tuscany, Italy; a place that holds family, love and wine to the utmost importance. It is clear from Studio Impressions' photographs that this day was no exception. I want so badly to close my eyes and be transported behind that birdcage veil so I can see this day through the bride's eyes. The delicate...

Glen Ellen Wedding at Atwood Ranch from Andrew Weeks Photography

I spend a lot of time drooling over beautiful gowns here at SMP.  That's just part of my job.  (I know, I know... I'm lucky.)  But, if I had to (had to) choose my all-time favorite gown, it would most definitely be this stunning Claire Pettibone number, which never EVER fails to make me smile.  Especially when paired with an uber-elegant barn wedding chock-full of personal details (Harry Potter, anyone?), the planning expertise of...

So, we've all dreamt of running off to Tuscany to say "I Do" to the love of our lives, right?  I mean, that's just a given.  A given, because Tuscany just so happens to be an uber-romantic spot for vow exchangin' and a drop-dead gorgeous locale, to boot.  Case in point?  This breathtaking Badia di Campoleone affair planned to perfection by...

Camarillo Wedding at McCormick Home Ranch from Love Ala

I'm a backyard wedding kind of girl. I think Father of the Bride probably started it all, but since writing this blog for the last nearly 6 years, it's those simple, sweet, all together lovely backyard affairs that always leave the longest lasting smile. And this one, while not a backyard in the traditional sense, is as pretty as pretty comes and just reminds me so much of those intimate, warm, filled with love homegrown affairs that I love so very much.
