First—we love the simplicity of Ashley and Zachary’s family-centric wedding day. There’s a sense of calm and happiness in every, single beautiful image by Red Fly Studio. Second—OMG it’s that wallpaper!! (you’ll know it when you see it.) We know you’ll enjoy this pretty little wedding as much as we do!

From photographer- Ashley and Zach had the perfect combo of being downright adorable and having classic beauty. They handled the dreary, rainy day with grace and enjoyed being around everyone. When these two saw each other for the first look, Zach literally jumped up and down and shouted “I’m the luckiest guy in the world!” Ashley has family in Germany, so their ring bearer, Zach’s nephew, wore lederhosen. They also did a traditional German log cutting after the ceremony to signify the beginning of a new family and the overcoming of the first obstacle of marriage. The color palette they to chose was timeless and the emotions of the day were real. I loved this wedding.

What made the wedding special and unique?

We chose Summerour because not only was the building absolutely gorgeous on its own, it was a central location for both families. That was top priority as family was the main inspiration for our wedding day. There is a certain comfort that comes with just being with your family. We wanted to spend the evening with each other, soaking in every minute and immersed in happiness with family and friends. We wanted people to see the love we have for each other in a setting that was gleaming with joy for all involved. We knew we didn’t want a wedding centered around a theme. The decor was light and simple. With the help of a welder from work we were able to make 17 candelabras for the tables. It wasn’t until the reception I was reminded of the ‘no candle policy’ I signed – whoops! They were still gorgeous and looked amazing by the floral arrangements. The log cutting ceremony was a special part of the reception. The majority of my mom’s family lives in Germany and wasn’t able make it. This was a way to include them and honor her heritage.

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

I took a girls trip to Atlanta to find a dress with my mom, his mom, and his sisters. It was the second dress I tried on at the first store I went to, Kelly’s Closet. I looked in the mirror and thought this is it – DONE! I still can’t get over how comfortable it was to wear.

What were some touches added to make it personal?

Our music choices- Processional: First and Last Waltz – Nickel Creek, Recessional: Clocks – Coldplay and lastly, First Dance: Out of The Woods – Nickel Creek.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

One of my favorite parts of the day was dancing with my dad while Zachary and his mom danced. It was such a special moment for me. As I looked over at him I couldn’t believe it. I am married to the most handsome, patient, and funny man AND he loves his mama AND has an incredible family!? I was overwhelmed and couldn’t wait to be his forever.

What made the wedding special and unique?

A wise soul advised me to go into your wedding day like you were writing a book about it. The entirety of the book would be solely about every detail of the day. They directed me to mentally note every taste, every sound, every feeling, every smell, every moment. It is so easy for the human brain to take special moments for granted. It takes great effort to consciously stay in the present moment and to enjoy it to its fullest. This piece of advice – to write a book about my wedding day – was the greatest gift someone could have given me. It helped me to live fully through each minute and to soak it up to its entirety.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

My husband and I did things a little differently – We were officially married April 19, 2014 with an audience of about 15. We decided to have our full Ceremony and “party” one year later on our anniversary. I would recommend this to everyone! It relieved so much stress of the day and did not take away the specialness of the event. I can honestly say it was the best day of my life, marrying my best friend again!

We’re loving this collab! Fabulous jewelry designer, Gorjana, teamed up with Green Wedding Shoes create a new line of bridal jewelry. We love the romantic mood of the collection and this wildly beautiful shoot photographed by Stephanie Williams of This Modern RomanceMore details about the collaboration from the designers below.

From Gorjana: We have always had a bridal customer and I’ve wanted to expand to that market for some time now, so a collaboration with Jen from Green Wedding Shoes was a perfect fit to tap into that market. The bridal market is a natural fit for the brand especially when it comes to bridesmaids jewelry. Our pieces have always made great bridesmaids gifts because they are so versatile, unique, and classic so they can be worn after the big day.

For the Green Wedding Shoes Collection, I wanted to create pieces that would take bridal and bridesmaid jewelry to the next level. I love the delicate nature of the pieces in this collection. They truly make for beautiful accents and will make any bride or bridesmaid feel unique on the big day. I was really excited about working with Green Wedding Shoes on this collaboration and getting to make Jen’s vision a reality. You can shop the Green Wedding Shoes x gorjana Collection here.

A bit about the collection from Jen Campbell the founder + editor of Green Wedding Shoes: For Green Wedding Shoes’ first collaboration with Gorjana, I set out to create a unique collection of jewelry for modern brides, bohemian brides, and their bridesmaids that allowed the mixing and matching of pieces to create just the right look for each wedding party. I also wanted pieces that would easily translate into daily wear after the big day, a huge bonus for anyone who’s been in a wedding!

As we kicked off the design process, I drew my inspiration for the collection from nature and textures. I just love the beautiful lace details of a wedding gown, the raw edges of druzy stones, organic-leaf elements, and tiny, delicate details with lots of layers. Then I worked with Gorjana to pair these timeless elements with some of my current loves for this season: rose gold, druzy stones, unique rings, and jewelry headpieces.

What made the wedding special and unique?

Preppy, colorful, glam. Those are the words I’d use to describe Liz + Jason’s beautiful Charleston SC wedding. The ladies of Pure Luxe Bride created such an inviting + beautiful space at Harborside East, a waterfront venue on the Cooper River, including a glamorous chandelier hung from the top of the tent, colorful florals by Branch Design Studio, a custom bar, and two long tables flanked by gorgeous navy chiavari chairs that matched the wedding color palette. It was an incredible design for sure! Despite morning storms, the skies parted just in time for their First Look in historic downtown Charleston.

Liz + Jason held down the dance floor all evening and their late night snack was the King of Pops cart – a local Charleston specialty which their guests LOVED!! At the end of the night, the newlyweds exited through the rain + lightning and hopped into a vintage Bentley… the perfect ending to an amazing wedding day.charleston_modern_preppy_wedding_decor_42charleston_modern_preppy_wedding_decor_41charleston_modern_preppy_wedding_decor_48charleston_modern_preppy_wedding_decor_43 charleston_modern_preppy_wedding_decor_44 charleston_modern_preppy_wedding_decor_45 charleston_modern_preppy_wedding_decor_47

Gasp! Swoon. Sigh…We’re basically speechless over this one. Lavender and Rose, a.k.a. event-planner-extraordinaire, created an absolutely breathtaking wedding day for Liz and Jonathan in the South of France. The florals are heavenly, the bride is timelessly elegant and the scenery will take your breath away. We can’t even find the words to describe this level of gorg. Luckily, these incredibly stunning images by the uber-talented Marianne Taylor Photography say it all.classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_04classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_02classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_03classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_05classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_06classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_08classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_09classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_10classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_11classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_13classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_14classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_15classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_16classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_19classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_20classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_21classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_23classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_24

What made the wedding special and unique?

We really wanted a destination wedding. I was in love with all things French – I had lived there in the past, we both spoke the language, he proposed and so it was easy, South of France it would be. I googled ‘wedding planners in the South of France’ and came across Lavender and Rose. Even from the first glance of their website, I knew they would be the right choice. Thankfully, Jennifer said they would be available to plan our wedding for late September and off we went. Jennifer was excellent. Her vision, style, professionalism and attention to detail was impeccable and at all stages of the planning process, she kept me calm and assured. I knew she had it under control (even when I didn’t) and most importantly, she understood my vision for the day. That’s key.

After a lot of issues with finding the right church, with the help of some family friends, we secured a beautiful church in Bar-sur-Loup, a tiny village just north of Mougins/Cannes. The church itself was perfect but the views were spectacular, in the mountains and overlooking a large impasse. It definitely had that wow factor. Our church ceremony music was performed by Hitched Wedding Music. Their voices are simply breathtaking and even during rehearsals, they amazed our bridal party.

What were some touches added to make it personal?

We had welcome bags hand delivered by Jennifer and her team. They included a tiny bottle of champagne, locally made soap and jam from Grasse and heel protectors (as the Chateau had stony paths). They also had all the details for pick up times, locations etc so everyone knew exactly where they had to be and when. Catering was by Parfum et Saveurs – the food was simply delicious, served to guests under silver lids to keep the food warm as there was quite a walk from the kitchen to marquee.

We had a live acoustic walking band, the Gypsy Queens, who played in between courses and speeches – they went to our guests tables and asked them for their requests. They really got everyone in the party mood. It was such a good idea to have them play in between courses as I often felt at previous weddings, that part can sometimes drag. After the cake cutting (our cake was by Wedding Cakes by Pamela) and dessert, the band led us up to another staged area with a grand piano and festoon lights where Jon serenaded me – a complete surprise. It was so romantic and a moment I will treasure. Jon and I had our first dance to a live performance of the song My Cherie Amour (classic) with all our guests waving sparklers. The Gypsy Queens led everyone to the inside dance area for the final part of the day, the dancing. Our DJ was Yannick Le Roux who was excellent. I think Jennifer had to literally move people off the dance floor at 3am! Yannick really listened to what we wanted and I would strongly recommend him. Another great idea was to have the Photo Booth by Alban Pichon in the same area as the dancing so that when people got a bit tired from dancing, they could act silly with French themed props and take away their pictures.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

Jon and I travelled in style to our reception in a vintage Aston Martin Lagonda. It was so vintage we had a wind up roof! I squeezed me and my dress into the car and there was just enough room for my new hubby! The guests followed behind in organised transport beeping their horns!

Our reception was held at the dreamy Franco-Italian Chateau Diter located just outside of Grasse. Filled with statues, fountains, ponds, flowers and the most spectacular renovated chateau, it was the perfect location for us. We had two large marquees set up (just in case) and boy were we glad of that. For what seemed like a lifetime (I was told later it was 20mins), we had a torrential downpour, just as we arrived at the venue. Jennifer dealt with it in true professional style and ushered everyone to champagne and canapés under the marquee. We had stunning music again from Hitched Wedding Music during the cocktail with Rob playing on a grand white piano and Rosie singing 1950s classics to jazz favourites. The French caricaturists and live cooking stations by caterer Parfum et Saveurs kept guests entertained.

The rain was worth it – after the clouds parted, we had this heavenly ethereal light, something I have never witnessed before. It was magical and made for some amazing photographs from our photographer, Marianne Taylor and videographer Clark and Palmer Wedding Films (both UK based) . They captured the detail, the light, the mood and all the tiny details which whizz past you on the day.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

I met Jonathan at a friend’s birthday party in a steak house in East London. He wasn’t my usual type I have to say but I was intrigued when he ordered the largest meat platter I had ever seen. He has now admitted it was all an attempt to get my attention but I just remember asking myself ‘Who is that hungry Chinese guy and how on earth will he finish all that meat?’ Well it worked – the following weeks were full of old school romance, fun filled dates like ping pong, swing dancing and restaurant hopping. It was the most fun I’d had in a long time! After a year and a half, he got down on one knee in true romantic fashion at a beautiful Chateau in a small village outside of Lyon. And so the French story began.

Talk about a striking couple! If it isn’t immediately obvious from the gorgeous fashion at this wedding—the bride and groom are fashion designers. Both of whom, designed their own wedding party wardrobe. We’re loving Jenny’s choice for her bridesmaids—avante-garde, navy jumpsuits—which Micah balanced out beautifully with the sharp fitting tuxedoes he designed for his groomsmen. The additional details of the event were clean and minimal (think graphic white calla lilies) and the couple let the always-cool Parker Palm Springs venue do the talking. Thankfully, Jenny Smith & Co. was there to perfectly capture the day.

What made the wedding special and unique?

We both are very artistic individuals and wanted a venue that was unique. We both have always loved the aesthetic and history behind the Le Parker Meridien in Palm Springs and felt an outdoor sunny November wedding at the hotel would be the perfect fit. We wanted the design of the wedding to be minimalistic and clean. We stuck to white calla lilies for the bouquets and centerpieces, navy jumpsuits for the bridesmaids, navy tuxedos for the groomsmen, and let the venue make up the rest of the overall look and feel.

What were some touches added to make it personal?

We are both fashion designers so Micah designed tuxedos for the groomsmen, while Jenny and her twin sister, Brie, designed jumpsuits for the bridesmaids.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

We decided to write our own vows and recited them to each other for the first time at the wedding. It made for a truly unique ceremony full of laughs and tears. In addition, our fathers’, siblings’ and friends’ speeches were hilarious, memorable and so special.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

For Micah’s birthday, he invited a small group of friends to Palm Springs with a secret proposal plan in mind. As the birthday meal ended, a waiter set a giant cake down in front of Jenny, to which she explained, “its his birthday, not mine” and pushed the cake in front of Micah. Micah then leaned into Jenny and asked her to read the cake which read “Will You Marry Me?!” and got down on one knee! What prompted the decision to have the wedding at this particular venue?

What’s white, pink and metallic all over? Definitely this wedding and it’s absolutely adorable. Dawn and Tim celebrated their wedding in spectacular style at the super-scenic Monarch Beach Bay Club. We’re especially in love with the tablescape details stlyed by our talented friends at Bliss Productions Wedding and Event Planning . And, of course, we totally heart the tasteful incorporation of the heart motif. Check out all the love and joy as captured in gorgeous images by Jana Williams Photography.

What made the wedding special and unique? 

Dawn and Tim’s wedding was an intimate ceremony among close friends and family at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Bay Club in Dana Point, CA. For the colors, we went with, Blush, gold, and grey, with pops of melon. Dawn got these colors from the champagne that they drank the night of their engagement. The love between Tim, Dawn, and Dawn’s daughter Elle was represented by three hearts, and was the inspiration for many of the details of their wedding. The three hearts representing Dawn, Tim and Dawn’s daughter Elle were included on the invite, the three-tier cake and the sign for the favors.

What were some touches added to make it personal? 

Guests were given mini bottles of champagne as favors, which represented the night that Tim proposed to Dawn under the stars with champagne. We also included on the sign a saying about enjoying bubbly under the stars for guests. The couple resides in Chicago, therefore table names were based off the couple’s favorite streets there. Because Dawn’s daughter Elle is such a big part of both Tim and Dawns life, they chose to have a scavenger hunt for the kids, as well a fire pit, complete with s’mores making station with Dawn’s favorite chocolate, and specialty marshmallows for everyone to enjoy. Floral arrangements consisted of dahlias, pink tulips, and blush colored roses. Dawn’s dress included blush in it and had a fun cut. The aisle of the ceremony had an ombre effect and large arrangements on either side to compliment the beautiful ocean behind the bride and groom.Southern_California_Wedding_Photographer_And_Jana_Williams-1553
