Take a classic garden celebration and add a generous dose of color plus blooms by Kelly Lenard, and I’m on board. It’s everything we love about summer nuptial with design moments (hello invite suite and family crest!) that feel totally fresh. Thanks to Lauren Baling for the perfect moments captured, all waiting in THE VAULT.

From The Bride…The vision for my wedding was very classic and organic. Much of my inspiration came from the natural setting of the garden we used for our ceremony. Different shades of pink were used for the bridesmaids dresses and florals to add color. The rest of the colors were very neutral to complement the outdoor setting. Kelly went over and beyond the with the florals!
The highlight of the day was walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing Joshua’s reaction. I could feel and see how raw and real his love was for me at that moment! We wanted our ceremony to be closely connected to us, so we our fathers! Joshua’s father was able to officiate the wedding, and my father read scriptures and led in prayer. Overall, having the people we love most celebrating our love was the best wedding gift we could’ve received, and I’m so thankful Lauren was able to capture our love so beautifully!

Monogrammed, chandelier’d, and 100% classic every inch of this affair planned by Boldly Chic Events is tucked, tied and designed to perfection. The Bride’s impeccable style alone is worthy of a stroll through THE VAULT gallery. Cory & Jackie stood behind every shot you see here, and we have a feeling you’ll fall hard for this understated class.
Lori from Boldly Chic Events…There is something about Jenny and Aaron that is incredibly special. The kindness they show everyone they meet is something that can’t be missed. They have a lovely calmness about them and it is clear that they are going to have a life full of absolute love. We enjoyed every minute of the planning with this couple and the day turned out perfectly. It is one we will never forget.
The couple chose Attica, Indiana as the setting for wedding day events. We were thrilled to make the short road trip away from Indy! The Old Church was charming with a southern feel, which is fitting for the native Texan Bride.
The natural-ness of the day was at every turn – the bridal gown, the florals, the simple greenery details and the private property set in rural Williamsport all made it personal and exactly in line with what the couple loves most.
The private property was owned by a friend of the couple and they have spent several days walking the trails, enjoying the creek and just enjoying nature on the secluded grounds as a couple. So, the decision was easy!
The week leading up to the wedding was wet – very wet. But, all the talented vendors (and the groom’s farming expertise) pulled it in and made this tented affair go off flawlessly. We couldn’t have done it without them!

As I bid sweet summer adieu, I’m relishing in any toes-in-the-sand goodness I can get my hands on. Thankfully, this coastal gem made it’s way into my inbox by way of the ever intriguing Kyle John Photography just in time. One Kelly Lenard bouquet and a Sarah Seven dress later and I’m reminded of why beach bridal sessions win me over every time.

From Kyle John Photography…
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express,
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.
And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!
– Lord Byron
