Molly & Teddy’s wedding was all about 2 amazing families from across the globe coming together and it was just plain stunning. Molly’s gown was simple but elegant with a pearl accented bodice. All of her accessories were also pearls, and extra special. The veil she wore was her mother’s they changed it a little bit by taking off the flower crown. Her earrings were her aunt’s and necklace her great grandmother’s.
Today’s stunning real wedding comes to us from Kate of Off BEET Productions, based in Fair Haven, New Jersey! Here’s Kate to tell us more:
Randi & Dan had a beautiful New Jersey wedding at the Ryland Inn in Whitehouse Station. The large stone fireplace created an extra cozy setting for their ceremony. In combination with the amazing Chuppah decorated with lots of organic greenery created by Twisted Willow it was breathtaking. Randi & Dan are a laid back couple and wanted to have as much fun as possible while taking their wedding photos. The day was cold any rainy so we did most of the photos indoors.
This delightful engagement shoot comes to us from Iris Dee Photography, based in Seattle, WA! Here’s Iris to tell us more:
I photographed Bianca’s and Anthony’s engagement session at Pike Place Market on a June evening after closing time. It worked out perfectly because we didn’t have to deal with tons of people in the background, yet we still had plenty of daylight due to the long Seattle summer days.

Maribel and Jonathan had an intimate destination wedding in Maui at Kukahiko Estate, a private venue that features plenty of greenery and a lawn set directly in front of the ocean surrounded by dramatic lava rocks.

Today’s featured wedding video, brought to us by Derek Lamoureux of LC Productions, is heart-warming, tear jerking, and cinematic. Here’s Derek to tell us more:
Madison and Josh met back in 2014 on the dating website “Plenty of Fish”. They had their first date at the Western Fair Home Show, followed by a lovely dinner. Josh put a lot of planning into the proposal and it finally happened on a canoe trip to Algonquin Park. Madi and Josh decided to get hitched at the beautiful Windermere Manor in London, Ontario. From beginning to end, their wedding day was full of laughs and magical moments. The LC Productions team thoroughly enjoyed being part of their day.
Today we have a lovely styled shoot to share with you, styled three ways to show exactly what you get at three different price points! Here’s wedding planner Brooke Millis of Each & Every Detail to tell us more:
As wedding planners, one of the most common conversations we have with our couples involves budget numbers, their Pinterest board, and a tough conversation about how much this centerpiece or that charger actually costs. We love working with couples to find a style and look that can be achieved within their budget, but we find that there’s a lot of heartbreak early on due to the fact that price tags are hard to find online. With this styled shoot, we wanted to show how specific elements can increase or decrease your budget while altering the overall look of your tablescape. We also included mock budgets for the entire wedding, so that couples can get a sense of how what they see on the tabletop relates to the overall style and cost of their wedding. These prices are definitely based on our Dallas-Ft Worth market, and will vary from place to place.
Designed Perfectly Events is a full service Wedding & Event planning company servicing the greater DC metro area and beyond. I was working in catering sales but started this company to be more involved and offer my creative ideas and strategic planning advice to my clients on a different level. What some people may not know about me is that I was actually born and raised in Germany. I am technically half German and half Greek although a lot of people think I am Asian due to my husband’s last name. I was only 19 years old when I took a leap of faith and moved to the US just 4 days after my high school graduation. I love the unknown and new beginnings and was very excited to see what life had in store for me. I am your typical German – practical, organized, stubborn at times yet very honest and direct. I have always had a love for planning events but I never thought I would make it my career. I feel absolutely blessed to call this my job as it certainly doesn’t feel like one. I am excited to get up and go to work each and every day.
