From Amy Rizzuto Photography … The sun rose slowly, casting a warm glow over the turquoise blue waves lapping against the bright white sand. It was the morning of Danielle and Adam’s wedding day, and it couldn’t have been more perfect. With hearts for adventure and travel, Danielle and Adam decided to get married in Riviera Maya, Mexico. Eighty- four of their closest friends and family ventured to the Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun Resort to witness Danielle and Adam tie the knot and become husband and wife.

Before the walk down a beautiful sea shell lined aisle, Danielle and Adam decided upon a first look in an old abandoned mansion on the beach. As a single tear trickled down his smile lined face, Adam pulled Danielle in for the biggest hug, whispering she looked more beautiful than he could have ever imagined. After their gorgeous sunset ceremony, Danielle and Adam danced the night away with all of their family and friends.

Vintage Elegant Swedish Wedding Inspiration

I love exploring new places, and luckily, my job sort of comes with a little virtual taste of that through all the weddings and shoots that we feature on the daily. Today? We’re diving into the charm and beauty of Sweden thanks to 2 Brides Photography and Vintage Wedding by Sweden. It’s vintage pretty at it’s finest, from the hairstyles to the sweet gowns and all that lies in between.

From the vendor team… In an old attic in the south of Sweden, two cousins found a hidden treasure. An unused and long forgotten about lot of vintage wedding dresses from a bygone era. When Frida and Emma chose me to shoot their campaign images I was so stoked! I mean I love old lace, vintage fashion and the idea of what they where all about. To have the opportunity to photograph dresses like these and working with a fab team of wedding business professionals doesn’t come around too often. All I can say is it was truly a dream gig!

Vintage Wedding By Sweden was founded in 2015 by Emma and Frida, both living and working on the little island Hönö, situated outside the west coast of Sweden. In two old charming houses, unique showrooms have been built and is open to meet and greet brides with champagne and fittings. Enjoy this taste of West Coast Sweden with it’s unique archipelago nature and fisherman’s culture as we incorporate today’s and yesterday’s beauty and craftsmanship in a lovely mesh.

Rustic Norwegian Wedding in Tuscany

Can we just agree that getting married in Tuscany is what wedding dreams are made of? Surrounded by olive groves, the authenticity of this affair is overwhelmingly breathtaking. From their garden ceremony to the courtyard reception, Facibeni Fotografia shared every darling detail with us here!

From Photographer Facibeni FotografiaCatherine and Nils chose to celebrate their wedding on an estate in the pristine Tuscan countryside. Along with their families and their close friends, they chose an old village to spend a few days relaxing with their loved ones due to the good food and the many experiences that the region offers to visitors.



The estate “ Quercia al Poggio” is the place they chose to celebrate the ceremony and organize the reception. The estate is an ancient Tuscan village surrounded by olive groves; completely built in stone, it is one of those authentic places where you can still feel the atmosphere of a few years ago. There are no ultra sharp TVs, and it is more likely to meet a donkey that a Wi-Fi signal. Well … a place of those where you leave heart and spirit!



The ceremony took place in the garden. A short but very intense rite, in which families and guests attended moved, in an almost surreal silence, interrupted only by birdsongs.

 In a place so beautiful and romantic, the photo shoot could not but be exciting. I chose to portray the couple simply, during a walk on the dirt road that winds through the property.



The dinner was held in the courtyard, between the ancient stone walls of the village. The T table has been prepared in a simple way, with flowers of the territory. Dinner was delicious, with delicious dishes of meat and mushrooms, and the inevitable red wine produced on the estate of Quercia al Poggio.



The speeches were endless! The Norwegian tradition in fact wants, in addition to the wedding party, that even friends say a few words to wish good luck to the marriage.

From the beautiful Bride… From the moment we met we were inseparable. The first year of our relationship was filled with fun and exciting adventures. We were fortunate enough to be able to travel to several places together, including Tulum, Mexico. There in Mexico, we fell in love. Ever since that amazing trip, we’ve had a soft place in our hearts for Tulum, which is why we were thrilled to start the rest of our lives in one of the very first places our love began.

Our wedding week was truly a fairy tale from beginning to end. The venue was the perfect backdrop to our love story. Gwen and her team from Destination Weddings Tulum handled every aspect of the wedding from the rehearsal dinner at Hartwood to the Cenote Cave tour to the late night churro cart; no detail was overlooked. We chose to have a destination wedding because we wanted all our guests to feel like they were on vacation. La Zebra had the rustic feel we wanted but still had the comforts of home. The days before the wedding we lounged by the ocean, played corn hole and even went cave swimming with our guests.

Like most brides, I was very nervous to see how the vision in my dreams would actually look, especially when your only able to correspond via email. The morning of the wedding I looked out the bridal suite to see blue skies, puffy white clouds and crystal clear turquoise water. I knew at that moment that it was going to be a perfect day. My husband and I still can’t believe what an amazing destination wedding we had. We feel truly lucky to have had so many loved ones with us to celebrate our love story.

Plantation

From ARIA StudiosKea and Francis’ wedding took place at the picturesque Pahala Plantation House on the Big Island of Hawaii. Warm as the Hawaiian sun, Kea and Francis are the kind of people who make you feel like you’ve known them for ages from the moment you meet them. Kea was breathtaking in a beautiful blush gown and flowers plaited into her braided hair. Francis and his body building self wore a perfectly complementing light suit. We headed out for golden hour to shoot around several of the wonderful features the Big Island has to offer; everything from sun soaked country roads, macadamia nut and coffee trees, and toppled over plumeria trees. The next morning we met at dawn for a sunrise post shoot amongst the rich black sand and lava rock of Punalu’u Beach. Kea wore a flower crown made from her wedding flowers that was a perfect way to add another life to her florals.
