Plantation Weddings, set on the steps of an old Civil War-era home, have captured my heart. Remember this gorgeous Southern wedding by La Cosa Bella Events? I still can’t get it out of my head! For a truly Southern wedding, Brides need to look no further than a wedding at Lowndes Grove Plantation in Charleston. This venue sets the bar and is decked out with lush florals in shades of pearl, peach, and dusty silvers. Ever since I got into the floral industry, I seriously obsess over flowers at weddings! These arrangements of white peonies, pink anemones, the david austin juliet rose, and ranunculus. All my favorites, y’all! Riverland Studios captured every moment, be sure to check them out when looking for a photographer in Charleston.
Our favorite wedding photographer is back again with a stunning Mexico destination wedding. Alea Lovely, an incredible photographer based in St. Louis, has an incredible gift of capturing every look, every stolen kiss, every moment of your wedding. This Mexico destination wedding is no exception! I love this bride’s look, especially with that beautiful headpiece, and ankle bracelet. It’s the perfect touch of glamour for her empire waist wedding gown. Just a few close friends and family attended the affair, creating a relaxed and subdued vibe. But since it’s Mexico, we know they had the time of their lives.
This past weekend our team had the pleasure of attending and covering The Swoon Event in Dallas. This is not your run-of-the-mill bridal show. Nor is it your run-of-the-mill bridal market. Picture Pinterest - and spending an afternoon pinning beautiful, awe-inspiring, gotta-have-it-now goodness for parties and weddings…but in person. You can imagine the giddiness and ear to ear smiles. The Swoon Event took place at The Green Warehouse in the Trinity Groves community of Dallas and (sidebar: if you live in Dallas, near Dallas, or are planning a trip to Dallas – you must visit this vibrant, thriving, eclectic destination) primarily features non-traditional goods, services and inspiration for locals who are planning a wedding or event. However, you don’t have to be a Dallas Fort Worth native to partake. For example, Winifred Bean (our newest obsession) can be shopped online. Also available worldwide – Appy Couple, Design Roots, Posta Bella, Damsel White Label, Picture Perfect Day, and Apryl Ann Photography. If you love working with independant designers, are obsessed with discovering new talent, crave incredible distinctive art, and enjoy shopping small businesses then we highly recommend checking out and following all of The Swoon Event vendors.
Beach engagements just make me smile. There is something about a big open ocean that puts me at ease. This couple shines against the background, especially with that red dress! T.C. Engle Photography captured this couple in Manhattan Beach, and I honestly don’t think she could have gotten more perfect light! Every image is serene, and the light is engulfing them! I’m obsessed, y’all!
I am loving anything and everything that touches on the nautical aesthetic for spring. This beautiful bride played off an the strong white pillars of an old church for her bridal session, and moved inward to a Charleston bridal shop with a stunning blue and white printed wall. These photos show off a natural side of her, and Carmen Ash Photography created a stunning session.
