peony bouquets and mismatched bridesmaid dresses

This gorgeous rustic chic wedding comes to us from Melissa Babasin Photography, based in Portland, OR! Here’s the lovely bride to tell us more:

Greg and I met at a country line-dancing party! My mom decided to throw this fun “barn party” one year and scouted our town for the coolest barn around, and it happened to be on the property Greg lived on. We naturally connected at the party and he stole my cowboy hat (his way of flirting!), and pulled a sneaky move to get my phone number. The rest is history, and so now I get to live on the property with the beautiful barn, and we throw the party annually!

Elegant Lake Tahoe Wedding (12)

Sophia and Nick's wedding at West Shore Cafe on Lake Tahoe, California.

Today’s lovely real wedding comes to us from photographer Ben Chrisman of Chrisman Studios. Here’s Ben to tell us more:

Sophia’s and Nick’s love story began in the real world. When they first met nearly a decade ago in Denver, Colorado, Nick, first innocently mistook his future bride for her younger sister and was immediately shamed (lightheartedly) for this blunder. Their playful relationship was born from that moment and over the years grew into a love based on an unshakable foundation of friendship.

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.
