From the Bride… I know, I know you’ve all heard the story before of the high school sweethearts falling in love and marrying each other. But, that’s just what happened with the two of us! We met our freshman year of high school, and he won me over with his guitar playing skills and that is how our love story began. We have been inseparable since that day. Once I finished college and Skyler followed his dream of playing professional baseball we packed up and headed east to Denver where we added two furry family members – our dogs Wrigley and Duke. Fast forward three years later we had enough of the snow and now happily living in our hometown of Monterey Bay. Our wedding was the most incredible day of our lives that we are able to share with our closet family and friends.

5 Ways to Take the Stress out of Bridesmaid Dress Shopping

If we’re being honest, finding that perfect bridesmaid dress isn’t always mimosas and bestie bonding. Sure, your shopping excursion always starts out fun, but landing on THE right style can be a tad bit stressful. So today we’re teaming up with our friends at Vow To Be Chic for five fab ways to take the stress out of bridesmaid dress shopping. Scroll below and thank us later, loves.

Your Stylist will even help you mix and match colors and silhouettes, plus send you swatches if you need them. It’s truly that simple.

The Perfect Summer Wedding in Maine

Last spring my family snuck away for a vacation on Maine’s gorgeous coast, and to say we fell in love with that place is a total understatement. I’m constantly scheming return travel plans but until then this York-set wedding is the next best thing. With SHE Luxe Weddings & Design by their side, Viveka and Alex brought their families together for the perfect summer day with a nautical twist. Dive into the images by Christina Bernales and see why we can’t get enough.

From Christina Bernales… As a wedding photographer, one of my favorite parts about weddings is seeing two families come together to celebrate the couple. Viveka and Alex’s wedding was first and foremost a big family affair, with Viveka’s big extended Swedish family joining Alex’s in the celebration.

Their union couldn’t have taken place on a more beautiful Maine summer day. Viveka got ready at her grandparents’ home and their wedding took place at Trinity Church in York, which is a beautiful, stone church, full of character and history. It felt as though we’d been transported to another time in history for a brief moment.

After a riverside champagne toast, Viveka, Alex, and their immediate families took a boat ride along the York river from the church to their wedding reception at the York Golf and Tennis Club where they had an unforgettable celebration.
