Croquet Themed Spring Wedding Shoot

This vibrant inspiration shoot combines the colours of spring and summer with a fun croquet theme.  The bright colours of the croquet balls created the inspiration for the entire setup from the retro stationery suite and striped place cards, right though to the zesty fruit desserts. With a gorgeous outdoor tablescape, milk shooters, and wheat grass place cards, it’s filled with plenty of creative ideas for a pretty outdoor affair. Just imagine… treating your guests to a fun lawn game to play during the reception – bound to be a hit we say!

Country Love Shoot by Cedarwood Weddings & Krista Lee Photography

The inspiration behind this country love shoot by Cedarwood Weddings and Krista Lee Photography is all about wide open spaces. Set in a 50-acre nature preserve on a historic farm estate in Nashville, Tennessee, the setting is perfect for popping the big question during a romantic romp in the southern countryside – and the fact that it’s so darn pretty doesn’t go astray either!

Sophisticated Plum Wedding by Kamila Harris Photography

Florentine Gardens Wedding

There is something so romantic about today’s wedding by Kamila Harris Photography. The pretty plum and pink infused hues, the grand ballroom reception, the pretty gold and silver details. It all comes together in a way that is very sophisticated without being pretentious, ever-so-chic without being overdone. But more than anything, it’s the insanely beautiful bride and her head-over-heels adoring beau that really makes our hearts sing.

From the photographer: Jenn and Andy first contacted me in early 2012, as they started planning their New Jersey wedding from their home in the UK. I had my first Skype client meeting with them, which was pretty funny since I am ridiculously awkward on camera – but it was very cool being able to speak to them, face to face, across the world! We met in person when they were here in New York a few months later finalizing some of their wedding plans. I was so excited about their wedding right from the start. I already loved The Estate at Florentine Gardens (especially in the fall), and I just couldn’t wait to see how this super cute couple’s day would turn out. And it turned out so awesome! Jenn was such a beautiful bride, Andy was a very handsome groom, and the whole wedding party was so much fun. I hope you enjoyed some of my favorite photos from their beautiful day!

California Heritage Schoolhouse Engagement Shoot by Jonathon David Photographers

Heritage Schoolhouse Engagement Shoot

You’re bound to love this little gem of an e session from Jonathon David Photographers. Wendy and Aaron’s oh-so-cute love shoot takes place in a heritage schoolhouse where they got to go back in time and play big kids together. An engagement shoot as adorable as this always gets a big tick in my book. School’s out class!

Bride-to-be Wendy shares: Aaron and I met rock climbing on Bishop’s Peak in San Luis Obispo. We both love nature, so outdoor engagement photos were an obvious choice. One less obvious thing about us, is the goofy streak Aaron and I have in common. We decided to play off of our silly personalities by doing part of the shoot in a historic one room school house. I am a teacher at an outdoor school, so the idea fit us perfectly. We sure had fun acting like over-sized kids. We added details with the chalk and blackboard, before we headed over to the pond on the school property! Because we love nature and the outdoors so much we decided to take a small boat out on the water.

From the photographer: I wanted to focus on a wedding with earthly magic seen though the eyes of a mysterious wood nymph. At a time when the heat of summer begins to wane, the leaves transform their colors, earthly creatures begin harvesting and preparing for the bitter cold of winter. I choose the wood nymph as my theme for their playful earthly focus, but also for it’s mystery and magic. I represented this theme by using earthly products or mimicking them where ever I could. For example we used birch and vines as an alter, wood benches for seating and the ceremony itself in the woods. The reception used wood tables and benches, moss runner, wood candles and vases, branch silverware, wood slabs for chargers and the table scape itself being set under a large tree. We also had a moss swing with vines, shoes covered in leaves and flowers, deserts centered around berries and apples, menus in the form of a maple leaf, as well as an organic game centered menu. We conveyed mystery and magic though dramatic makeup for our model, dry ice in drinks to create a potion effect, and a complex layered ethereal gown. I choose the name Edmund Mountbatten for our groom; Edmund being a common princely first name and Mountbatten being a Royal English Surname. I choose the name Rusalka Wood for our bride; Rusalka being literally translated to Wood Nymph in Czech and Wood referring to our focus. As a wedding planner there are certain design themes that you always dream about creating. For me this was one of them and I am so very pleased with the final product, the process and the entire experience. I hope you enjoy experiencing it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding by Neil Redfern Photography

I’m practically drooling over the cheese wedding cake in this delightful UK wedding. It looks so inviting and delicious, I might just have to pop over to the deli this afternoon and grab a bite of gourmet brie to indulge myself. Then again, the cheese stack is not the only delight in this sweet wedding held at the lovely Sandhold Oak Barn in Chesire. It’s full of homemade sweets, vintage inspired mismatched centrepieces, and an ice-cream van! Just a whole bunch of prettiness and delicious all round really! Brought to us by Neil Redfern Photography all the way from the UK, it’s the perfect little sunny soiree to get you through your day!

From the photographer: Photographing the wedding of my personal friends is such a privilege, it just takes the enjoyment of a job which I already love to an even more enjoyable level – and so it was when I photographed the friends of my very good friends Natalie & Jack at the beautiful Sandhole Oak Barn in Cheshire, England on one of the warmest days of the year so far – the sun was shining all day! 

I used to work with Jack and mainly through of shared passion for the odd drink, we became really good friends. Seeing him so happy on his wedding day was just brilliant:-) Jack had every reason to be happy, he was marrying the beautiful Natalie (how amazing does Natalie look?!) in front of all their family and friends at one of Cheshire’s best wedding venues on what must have been the hottest day of the year! Not a bad day then. Natalie and Jack had the perfect day and I couldn’t have been happier for them both. Natalie had planned everything to the smallest detail and the day literally couldn’t have gone any better. I was just pleased to be able to photograph it for them both.

Outdoor Winter Wedding Theme Ideas

Not every winter wedding is blanketed in snow or celebrated indoors. So we thought some gorgeous inspiration for an outdoor winter wedding, would be just the thing for couples planning a celebration in a not-so-chilly climate. We love the combination of delicate baby’s breath, elegant silverware and pretty milk glass vases, all set against a rustic outdoor setting to create the PERFECT mix. And we can’t get enough of the romantic boho style, organic details, and those fabulous drop earrings! Designed to perfection by Swann Soirées, it’s a winter wedding theme which will spoil you with swoon-worthy ideas!
