Kate Spade Inspired Fall Wedding

Us SMP ladies have a long standing crush on Ms. Spade so when we came upon these pops of pink and chic stripes, it was love at first sight. Jordan Brittley snapped every detail and Anthony Alanis filmed away, as the stylish duo said “I do” and danced the night away. Did we mention this Groom also gifted his lucky lady with a pair of Louboutins? See this gorgeous gift and more in our VAULT right this way!


From Jordan Brittley… I am so excited to share this Kate Spade and garden inspired wedding with you! You’re going to love the Louboutin’s that the groom gave his bride as a gift, the bright pops of pink for this fall wedding, and the “LOVE” marquee sign at the reception. Alexia thought of EVERYTHING when it came to her wedding! She had her bouquet wrapped in black and white ribbon which tied in another Kate Spade detail and tipped it’s hat to fall! More from the bride below..

From the Bride… My mom and I wore a blue stone ring in memory of my sister. I bought it for my mom as a gift for the wedding which was my something blue!

I wanted my wedding day to feel welcoming, loving, inspiring, fun and memorable to my guests! My wedding had always been a dream of mine and Brett and I had a blast planning the details to make sure our guests felt all of the things I mentioned above!

Whimsical Countryside Wedding

After being escorted down the aisle by their young daughter, this cute couple wed amongst nature. Reminiscent of an English countryside garden, this nostalgically intimate gathering is oh-so-sweet. Crowned with delicate blushing blooms and an adorable striped canvas tent, Aly Carroll captured the allure and nuance of their lovely sunset celebration.


Aly Carroll Photography… The nuptials of Sheila and Jake were held at Reiman Gardens in Ames, Iowa, August 15, 2014. On this day, however, the setting was more reminiscent of an English countryside garden, complete with pea gravel pathways, an idyllic potting shed, and masses of late summer plantings spilling from estate-worthy urns.

It was a small, nostalgically intimate gathering, with only a few close family and friends attending. After being escorted down the aisle by their young daughter Sophie, the couple were wed against the backdrop of nature.

Professional floral designer Shelly Sarver artfully embellished the outdoor space with gorgeous pale pink roses, white hydrangeas, and dusty sage greenery. Flowing grosgrain ribbons highlighted the elegant arrangements.

Sophie even had her own little on-site retreat – – an adorable striped canvas tent, crowned with a delicate cascade of blushing blooms. A sunset reception was held on the terrace under large periwinkle umbrellas. Lanterns dotted the landscape, and star garland and fairy lights twinkled above in the leafy canopy of trees.

Fine art wedding photographer Aly Carroll captured all the allure and nuance of this lovely celebration. No doubt, every image will continue to tell the story of Sheila and Jake’s romantic “English country” wedding for years to come.
