Thank you so very much to Brian Marcus of Fred Marcus Photography for sending us today’s featured wedding. Your photographs have inspired us to no end! And of course, to Erik and Melissa for sharing their absolutely gorgeous celebration with us!

Real Wedding: Erik and Melissa, III

We’ve featured two totally different weddings today…the first a crisp, sophisticated beachside affair with AMAZING flowers by Karen Tran. And this one, shot by Brian Marcus…a romantic, rustic/chic style with a sense of warmth and intimacy that I love.

Two completely unique styles, two completely different weddings and yet they both evoke the same sense of romance and unabashed beauty. It just goes to show that if you let your own personality shine through, your day will be perfect…filled with a sense of style and grace that suit you and your love to a T.

We had a few really great touches that made our wedding so special for us…we gifted the women pashminas (the rolled up fabric in basket) just in case they got chilly. We had guests take B&W photos of themselves with a vintage photo booth. Because of Erik’s music connections, our band went out of their way to do special songs just for us…like David Bowie – Modern Love.

More on the way!

Real Wedding: Erik and Melissa, II

For those of you that don’t know about Fred Marcus Photography, it’s one of those studios where the focus is always on the couple, always on the emotion. Capturing the simple but innate beauty of the day.The perfect details and the absolute joy behind each image. And when I saw this wedding that they recently photographed, I think that I fell in love all over again.

From the absolutely gorgeous (and by gorgeous I mean that I am a little jealous of her) bride…

We held the ceremony right in the middle of the vineyard which was such a breathtaking moment….right in the middle of the grapes! In the hours before the wedding, it poured and poured and poured, then right as I walked down the aisle the sun came out!  Such a magical moment.

My gown was by Monique Lhuillier and had a beautiful ombre (gradation effect)…  went from ivory to latte.  An absolutely gorgeous dress. Erik wore a tux by John Varvatos, a tie by Ralph Lauren and a Vest by Duncan Quinn (who also made his cufflinks). Classic elegance.
