Princess Bride Themed Vineyard Wedding (8)This lovely, whimsical vineyard wedding comes to us from Vivian Chen Photography, based in Oakland, CA! Here’s Vivian to tell us more:

Kinne and Steve met in law school and quickly bonded over their cute and nerdy interests. Flash forward a few years, and they found themselves getting married with a destination wedding at a picturesque private Napa estate. Their wedding decor had little touches that were intrinsically them, from the “To infinity and beyond” engraved inside Steve’s wedding band to the use of Lord of the Ring writing on the wedding signs (hand painted by Kinne’s sister!) to my favorite, their “The Princess Bride” guestbook.

A Beautiful Maui Wedding (12)

This stunning Maui beach wedding comes to us from Karma Hill Photography, based in Wailuku, Hawaii. Enjoy!

Tiffany & Ryan decided on a beautiful Maui Wedding at Po’olenalena Beach on Maui’s south shore! The light was gorgeous giving off hints of pinks and purples as the sun set against the clouds. The waves breaking in the background made for the perfect backdrop for this gorgeous couple to tie the knot. The ceremony was performed in the perfect location just above the water and surrounded by lava rocks. Reverend Valentine Rosete officiated their heartfelt ceremony beginning with a blow of the conch shell. The lovely couple exchanged leis and said their vows and Reverend Tino closed with a beautiful Hawaiian blessing to start the couple off on their new life as husband and wife. After their ceremony Karma Hill Photography took advantage of the gorgeous scenery and sunset for their romantic couple’s pictures. The wedding went extremely smoothly thanks to the coordination and planning of Simple Maui Wedding.

Travel Themed DIY Wedding (7)

Travel Themed DIY Wedding (17)

This wonderful DIY comes to us from Kristen Nicole Photography, based in Toledo, OH! Here’s Kristen to tell us more:

Rosanna and Paul’s wedding was travel-themed, based on all of the places they had visited over the years and also while dating. Almost all of their elements were DIY – cake topper’s made out of wood in the shape of the state each of them is from, boarding pass table cards for guests, luggage tags made out of maps for guests to write notes to the couple. What also made the wedding special were the trays of pastries as centerpieces, made by Rosanna’s father, who is a baker from Italy. After years of providing other brides and families with treats for their events, he was able to showcase his creations at his daughter’s wedding.

A Northern California Beach Wedding (1)

A Northern California Beach Wedding (1)

This gorgeous California coast wedding comes to us from Viera Photographics, based in Rohnert Park, California!

The couple were ironically both very stressed the morning of the wedding. Mainly because unbeknownst to the other, neither had yet written their vows. In the words of the couple about how they met: “Boy meets girl. First year at UCLA, if you’re keeping track. They exchange smiles, a few laughs over scattered birthdays, a random run-in at the shoe section of a shopping mall, and then proceed to ignore each other for the better part of four years. Reconnect through mutual friends and chance.

Bicycle Theme Country Manor Wedding in Ireland (8)

Bicycle Theme Country Manor Wedding in Ireland (19)

Today’s real wedding comes to us from Reesha of Prêt à Papier based in Dubai, UAE! Here’s Reesha to tell us more:

When Valerie McCabe came to me to design their wedding stationery, I knew it was going to be one of the most unique requests I have received in my career as a wedding stationer. Irish Valerie McCabe was to marry Scottish Phil Hobbs and they were going to be hosting a celebration reception in an old manor house in a spectacular part of Ireland. But there was much to celebrate! It was going to be 3 occasions in 1 – Their wedding, Phil’s 50th and early retirement. So their invitations and wedding stationery needed to convey these 3 themes in a creative and light hearted way, but with a touch of class. It was of course going to be a mature wedding that would reflect the collective life experiences and humour of their guests.

An Intimate Pacific Northwest Island Wedding (3)

This sweet Pacific Northwest Island wedding comes to us from Tasha Vanasse of Vanasse Studios Photography based in Seattle, WA! Here’s what Tasha has to say about the lovely couple and their big day:

What do you get when you cross a gorgeous bride and groom, a fairytale island location, a BHLDN wedding dress and cultural influences from the northwest, east coast, and Jamaica? Alexis + Kevin’s wedding was quite simply perfect, and one of my favourite weddings to date. I’m thrilled to share a few photos from their picturesque day with you. The whole day unfolded beautifully on Lummi Island (in the San Juan Islands), from the girls preparing in the quiet morning hours, to a rockin’ dance party that ran late into the night. As a photographer obsessed with lovely things, I couldn’t have dreamt it better myself.

Stylish and Quirky Las Vegas Wedding (1)

Today’s real wedding, brought to us by wedding stationer Michael Coxen of Paper and Home is the perfect blend quirkiness and refinement! Here’s more about the wedding from Rissa of Scheme Events:

It never ceases to amaze me how each and every Springs Preserve wedding has its own style, point of view and makes the venue shine in a completely new way! Sara & Keaton hosted their friends and family on a beautiful May evening at Springs Preserve and gave it their own spin. The day was filled with memorable moments, from their best friend officiating one of the most impressive wedding ceremonies we’ve witnessed, to having Sara’s brother send a video toast from thousands of miles away. To know Sara and Keaton in a day-to-day setting is only to know a portion of who they really are. Get to know them on a dance floor and the party really gets started!

This stunning mountain wedding comes to us from Christina Kiffney Photography based in Boulder, Colorado! Here’s Christina to tell us more:

Darren and Devin met during college at Colorado State and dated for 6 years before getting married. They got engaged while sitting on the balcony of the gorgeous Brodmoor hotel. Self-described as easy going homebodies, they wanted to create a wedding atmosphere that was cozy, comfortable, and celebratory of their beautiful home state, Colorado. They couldn’t have been happier with the simple and joyous day they had, and they continued their non-traditional celebration with a honeymoon to England and Ireland.
