When we open up wedding submissions, we’re always prepared to see something pretty. We’re alway ready to see happy couples, delightful decor and venues that we’d book for our very own weddings. On the very best of days, though, we open a set of images that puts an enormous grin on our faces from start to finish. This gallery ~ captured by Emily Wren Photography ~ did just that. Aly and Tor’s summer wedding at Appleford Estate isn’t just full of pretty… it’s also loaded with all kinds of joy. The excitement shines through on each and every image. An almost tangible love that deserves to be shared! These days are are the best. Oh… and if your a pup lover, don’t miss their giant of a pup, “Bear”.
More from Emily Wren… Aly & Tor’s Appleford Estate wedding was filled with lovely moments and personal touches. Elements in cloud grays, sweet pinks, and crisp whites appeared delicate and timeless set against the venue’s lush greenery. Aly’s bridesmaid, Steph, is the boss-babe behind Stephanie B Design and she custom-designed the entire wedding stationery suite, welcome sign, escort cards, and table numbers, adding a layer of personal significance to some seriously elegant pieces! The welcome sign and the invite featured her own watercolor painting of the venue and that graceful lilting script, paired with handsomely debossed silver-gray velvet was so chic!
The bride wore an intricately embellished Berta gown that looked as if it had been plucked from the pages of a fairytale. Paired with soft glowing makeup and a polished chignon that ONLO styled, Aly’s natural beauty was allowed to shine. Throughout the venue, Fresh Designs Flora & Events‘ arrangements of dreamy pink blooms and hanging greenery installations really added to the ethereal feel of the day. The bridesmaids wore fluid, floor-length, pale peach chiffon dresses and the groomsmen wore crisp, oxford-navy suits paired with handsome silver ties.
The ceremony took place beneath a stunning floral arch, set at the water’s edge. Aly and Tor’s handsome pup, Bear, was dressed for the occasion in a dashing collar of greenery. He looked so proud walking down the aisle for the ceremony– clearly he was excited to see his parents tie the knot!
Following the ceremony, guests were treated to a gorgeous summer supper on the estate’s terrace.
As the sun set, Aly & Tor danced into the night surrounded by their friends and loved ones. Truly a picture-perfect summer wedding!
