From Carolina Guzik PhotographyThis Ocean Reef Club wedding was fantastic! Paige + Christian are from the North East and decided to have a destination wedding in Key Largo, a place where Paige and her family have been vacationing since she was a little girl. 100 of their closest friends and family joined them to celebrate their love and commitment for each other.

And as you know, Love is in the details! This wedding had some spectacular decorations. It couldn’t be any more Floridian with the centerpieces being orange and lemon trees, plus some other gorgeous and simple flowers like chamomile plants, and Lily of the valley that Paige’s family brought straight from her grandma’s garden in Philadelphia. This wedding was a complete beauty all around!

Classic + Elegant Wedding at the Bay Preserve

The most important thing about your wedding day is that you and your groom enjoy every moment of it, and this couple definitely did. With two pairs of chic shoes (one for the ceremony and one for dancing!) and the relaxing nature of their waterfront venue, this bride and groom guaranteed their wedding would be a very happy occasion. See all the gorgeous photos from Tiffani Jones here.

From The Bride…We really wanted something that felt like us. We wanted something that felt easy and laid back (even though we all know no wedding planning process is really like that!). We loved that this venue felt as though it was just our backyard with all the people we love, all hanging out. I love the beach and the open water. When Dan first saw me at the beach (we met in NYC) he said “Woah, this is really your element. You seem so at ease and happy here.” BUT we had been to beach weddings and they were so hot and windy – we didn’t want exactly that. This venue had a dock, a beach and then felt like a garden party!

A few extra special things from the day:

1. We wanted our wedding to be a whole weekend celebration, not just a one night affair. For the most part everyone stayed at the same hotel, hanging by the pool together all weekend. It allowed mingling of different friend groups and just an overall celebratory vibe that really spread into the big night.

2. Our photographer and videographers! We Skyped with a few different people before we found who we loved! We obviously love their individuality and skills but we also wanted to find people who we connected with. We loved working with these guys because we felt so comfortable with them and they helped us have a blast.

3. We had a really non religious wedding but we did a tisch. One of my friends had done this and I just thought it was so special, adding love and excitement right before the ceremony. A tisch is an old Orthodox Jewish tradition where the males and females separate. The females talk about the future, give advice and make toasts in general. I’m not exactly sure what the men do, but this just increased the excitement before walking down the isle. I feel like since we did our first look before the ceremony this gave us time to regroup separately before meeting under the chuppah.

4. Our DIY project was the board where the table assignments were located. I was at home for a dress fitting and was in the garage and found this old giant wooden frame my parents had. It was a little beat up but then we simply just added burlap, string and clothes pins and it was perfect! It fit in with the vibe and made us feel like we were artsy.

5. The bridesmaids dresses: Oh man, I have literally thrown away or left my bridesmaid dress in the hotel room after each wedding I was in…and they were expensive! I wanted the girls to feel pretty on the day. I wanted them to want to keep their dress. I wanted their money to be worth it! So I just gave the girls a color scheme and a length and everyone looked gorgeous. No one was pulling up a strapless dress all night, or squeezing into Spanx. Everyone felt like themselves and I think it showed on the dance floor! No one sat down all night!

6. My bridesmaids’ gifts. Everyone makes fun of me because I keep the words “I love you” for only like Dan and my family. I mean I love everyone but those words I like to keep special! So as a gift for all the girls I found these little dishes that said “Je t’aime beaucoup.” I really obviously love them all since they were my bridesmaids and wanted to let them all ACTUALLY know.

7. Shoes. Obviously my sneaks. I am so not a high heel wear-er. I can last for maybe an hour and that’s all. I literally wore the nikes because they were more comfortable but they stole the show!

From Brita PhotographyI’m so excited to share Blair and Jonathan’s gorgeous wedding at Little River Farms with you. There was not a detail overlooked for this southern yet very classic and elegant wedding. From rustic, farm tables at the reception to sophisticated, pastel details in the flowers and attire…Blair and Jonathan’s wedding was the epitome of a timeless southern wedding.

When I arrived at Blair’s bridal suite, she had all of her gorgeous, wedding details ready for me to capture. There were so many meaningful pieces and there wasn’t a detail overlooked. From her grandmothers’ broaches to the embroidery on her wedding dress and the most lovely, sentimental jewelry…everything was just beautiful. I felt so honored to be the one capturing these heirlooms and special pieces that Blair and Jonathan will remember for the rest of their lives. Over 200 guests filled up their outdoor dining room at Little River Farms as Mr. and Mrs. Morgan made their grand entrance. Wooden tables, pastel floral arrangements, and rustic, elegant accents decorated every room of their venue. Their friends and family had a great time celebrating and dancing into the night, laughing, singing, and enjoying every moment of Blair and Jonathan’s special day.

Romantic Art Deco-Inspired Nashville Wedding

I don’t love themed weddings, but this Bride and Groom’s Art Deco-inspired Nashville fête is so elegant and understated, that I may have to change my stance. With touches like beaded bridesmaids’ dresses and décor to highlight the space’s neoclassical design, this wedding is the perfect modern take on 1920′s glamour. And Cassidy Carson‘s photos? Well, they’re perfection, too—see them here.

From The Bride… Nashville is a very special place to us; we met in Nashville, and my husband attended Vanderbilt University. Therefore Nashville was the only choice for us to tie the knot. When we started to look for wedding venues, we both knew that we wanted a classic wedding venue that combined southern culture and vintage charm. From the moment we entered the Schermerhorm Symphony Center in downtown Nashville, we immediately fell in love with the neoclassic design and natural lighting. The venue provided a vintage template, with a stunning courtyard, meticulous crown molding, and grand interior columns. The unique light fixtures and marble flooring were enhanced with beautiful organic floral arrangements.

When it came time to purchase a dress, I had trouble deciding what type of dress I wanted. I just couldn’t imagine myself in a traditional wedding dress. After looking through lots of wedding magazines and blogs, I ended with a custom design from St. Isabel based in Austin, TX. I quickly decided that I would feel most comfortable in a deep & dramatic neckline, and then we built onto the dress from there. I ended up wearing a long sleeved, white laced gown, with beautiful button details.

Once we selected the venue we wanted to make sure our wedding day was elegantly captured. We researched so many photographers and immediately fell in love with film photographer, Cassidy Carson. We couldn’t be happier with the way our pictures turned out. Every picture captures the joy of our wedding with a romantic, rich texture and soft finish.

On the day of our wedding, we started our morning with a quick run; we couldn’t resist telling fellow joggers that we were getting married. Everyone responded with positive comments and stories about their wedding day. Once we finished running we were off to the venue. Another great wedding decision was selecting Jamie Brickell from 12th table design for wedding coordination and Amanda Gros for styling and makeup. Jamie was spot-on with every wedding detail; she made all my planning efforts come to reality. Amanda Gros was also brilliant; she understood that I wanted a vintage, yet natural look. It was very important to me that my makeup wasn’t too heavy. We anticipated being nervous on the wedding day, but were surprisingly relaxed.

Even though we wanted a traditional venue, we wanted to reduce the traditional wedding activities. We excluded the garter belt / bouquet toss and cutting the cake; however we kept our first dance and the dances with our parents. One of my favorite wedding memories was dancing with my father to Moon River, the same song that my grandparents danced to at their wedding. We also wanted our guests to accurately experience Nashville, aka The Music City; we selected an incredible band that kept us dancing to Motown hits. My husband’s primary goal for the wedding was to have an awesome party, and sure enough, everyone had such a good time that it ended with all the male guests placing their ties around their heads. It was a night to remember! We feel so fortunate to have experienced our dream wedding, surrounded by the people we love.
