This Beaming Bride Is Giving Us Major #WeddingGoals

With her blue suede shoes, the best updo ever, and a smile that never stops, this Bride did it all right. Despite some little challenges (we’re talkin’ a wedding party of 18!), this spring celebration was smooth sailing, with the help of Hello Blue Photo who captured every blush and gold detail that we keep pinning and pinning. See all the goodness in our Vault right this way!

From the Bride… Our inspiration for the wedding came from a combination of elements. I began to feel overwhelmed with the printed bridal magazines and found myself constantly on Style Me Pretty’s Vault. We wanted it to be so classic that when we are showing our grandchildren pictures from our wedding, it would be timeless. I also started to follow a lot of wedding vendor’s accounts on Instagram (Details Details, Bloom Box Designs, Revelry Event Designers, etc.) for daily inspiration.

Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club was the first venue we saw. We’ve always envisioned ourselves getting married in Palm Springs since it is our favorite weekend getaway spot, but the second we saw the beautiful hardwood floors, classic gold chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling French windows, we knew that we found THE venue. Our event coordinator, Nicole, was so accommodating and genuinely wanted to make our wedding day everything we’ve ever dreamed of. Decorations were fairly easy to select due to how classic the venue was. The gold chandeliers dictated the gold chiavari chairs, gold chargers and gold accents. The white French windows and walls created such a bright inviting feeling to the space and I wanted to accentuate that with white linens, candles, and floral arrangements. I wanted to incorporate the soft pink color that the bridesmaids’ wore by adding light pink flowers in the arrangements and tying the favors with blush pink ribbon.

I can not say enough about Christina, Hello Blue Photo. There were so many reasons why we chose her and we are so happy with the outcome. We met with quite a few photographers prior to meeting with Christina and did not really vibe with them. The second I met Christina, I felt like I’ve known her for years and we instantly clicked. I had no doubt in my mind that she knew exactly what we were looking for in photography and completely understood where our vision was. My husband and I are not very comfortable in front of the camera and didn’t want the wedding to feel too posed. We wanted a photographer who would capture genuine, natural, clear and candid pictures. We knew that we disliked photos that are too edited and cheesy poses. Christina captured exactly what we were looking for and more! We had a fairly large wedding party (eighteen total!), and Christina and her team took charge the day of the wedding! They made sure we had all the pictures we wanted taken and encouraged such natural interaction in the process. We plan on using Christina for all photography needs in the future!

From Justin DeMutiis PhotographyAs guests arrived for Caroline and Brad’s wedding at her parents’ home on Snell Isle, they were guided through a three-part journey of celebration. Starting with a garden-inspired ceremony at the front of the home where the couple exchanged vows, followed by cocktails at the gorgeous guest house where guests sipped champagne and watched the sunset, to the final transition where the guests followed the whimsical light of the luminaries along the water’s edge, until they were welcomed into the luxurious glowing sailcloth tent for an event of dinner and dancing.

We’ve Just Found the Most Romantic Spot in New Orleans’ French Quarter

Hidden away at the Carmelite Monastery, lush romance overflows, seeping into every image from Trent Bailey. Created by Sapphire Events, this sultry scene before us is alluring and inspiring – from Distressed Rental + Revival’s pieces to Melissa’s Fine Pastries’ cake that doubles as a work of art. Fall in love with this look and this Southern spot before the rest of the world gets the word – all in our Vault right here!

From Sapphire Events… This styled shoot was a collaborative effort between Sapphire Events and Trent Bailey Photography. The abandoned Carmelite Monastery from the 1800s tucked away in the heart of the French Quarter served as the inspiration for this shoot. The bouquet created by Kim Starr Wise mirrored the overgrown, wild, and lush feel of the Monastery’s hidden courtyard. The Romona Keveza gown served as the perfect contrast to the structured, ornate architecture of the historic building. Trent Bailey perfectly captured on film the magic and intimacy of the exclusive venue.
