30 Bridesmaids + Groomsmen for a Brunch Style Wedding!

If you love waffles for dinner – and let’s be honest, who doesn’t? – then a wedding like Abigail and Samuel’s might be perfect for you. They incorporated all their favorite breakfast foods for a menu that was anything but boring. Oh, and they did it with a bridal party of 30 by their side. This gallery by Jake + Heather and film below by Berean Productions are not to be missed.

From Jake + HeatherWe don’t even know where to start with how amazing Abigail and Samuel’s wedding was. Even with their gorgeous outdoor ceremony of 300 guests, bridal party of 30 and spacious, wide open historic reception structure, their day felt so incredibly intimate and family oriented.

Abigail is a joyful soul that has never met a stranger and Samuel is intentional and kind with a gracious presence. These two compliment each other perfectly and they could not have been more excited to marry each other.

Their special day held lots of meaningful details, an emotional first look, a tear-jerking ceremony – don’t forget the donut bar, old fashioned coke bottles, and last but not least, waffles for dinner.

It was certainly one for the books and we were beyond honored to capture these photographs for them!

Take advantage of all this solid sofa time and add all the snuggly and cozy must-haves to your wedding registry list – you’ll be wanting these items for winters to come. PS. We’ve included a recipe for Nutella Hot Cocoa that is NOT to be missed.

A Summer Wedding Awash in Lavender + Blush

Every now and then a wedding comes along that’s nearly impossible to curate because every last image is utter perfection. That’s exactly the case for this summertime ranch affair designed by CCL Weddings & Events with floral pretties from Peony & Plum. We’re officially spending this Black Friday dreaming in shades of lavender and blush, and you can find even more captured by Esther Sun in the gallery and The Cub Team’s film below.

From the Bride…We had a vision from the beginning of a natural outdoor vineyard wedding in California awash in lavender and blush colors. Other than that, we had a lot of concepts floating around in our minds, and our planner, Cat Leo of CCL Weddings and Events, worked really hard with us to narrow the ideas down to something we could execute. We think it really came together beautifully in the end, from the flowers to the candles to the signage!

Venue: We knew that our families—Sejin is from Seoul, and Mike is from Chicago—and our friends would be coming from all over the place, so California just made a lot of sense for us as a gathering place. We also fell in love with the perfect weather and the beautiful natural settings that are everywhere in the state. We took a trip out to California last summer and looked at a handful of very nice venues, but nothing really stood out to us. That same weekend, we went to our friends’ wedding at Malibu Rocky Oaks in the Santa Monica mountains, and it just hit us that this was the perfect place to get married. The sun setting over the mountains, surrounded by grape vines, it was everything we wanted but couldn’t exactly articulate. Cat had told us about Saddlerock Ranch and Vineyards, and we tried to see the venue while we were in the area, but we weren’t able to get in. So we took a leap of faith and booked the venue without actually seeing it in-person, and it was everything we could have hoped for!

Favorite moments: Definitely walking down the aisle with our moms. We wanted to honor our moms for shaping us into the people that we are today, and it just felt really natural that we would walk down the aisle with them. And we were so lucky because the sun was shining and the weather was amazing, and when the sun set and the café lights lit up the dance floor and the dining area it was perfection!

Advice for other couples: Don’t procrastinate, share the load equally with your partner, and listen to your planner!

Simple + Intimate Fall Elopement in Paradise Valley, Montana

‘Tis the season to spend time with our families, which is why this sweet Montana elopement feels so appropriate to share. Captured by the talented Danford Photography, it’s a seriously sweet reminder that family is first and foremost, and we’ve got it all waiting in The Vault!

From Danford PhotographyMelanie and James decided to have a simple elopement while they were on vacation in Montana with their two year old little boy and baby girl. They chose gorgeous Paradise Valley for the simple and sweet occasion. The day of their elopement, the mountains were blanketed in low-hanging clouds, but the rain held off. Melanie wore her beautiful red hair down her back, complemented by a lace BHLDN dress and her vintage emerald engagement ring. Her bouquet was a gorgeous pop of yellow on an overcast day. We all casually strolled up the hill to a field with beautiful 360-degree views of the cloud-covered mountains and the horses grazing nearby. Melanie and James made vows to their children and each other, exchanged rings and kisses, and then we took photos of their adorable family as their little boy ran off some energy. Afterward, they sent us off with a generous slice of the most incredible lemon blueberry lavender cake. The afternoon was relaxed, intimate and full of love.
