I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

We can’t resist a good reveal and bride Beatriz’s epic skirt swap has us enchanted. The classic cap sleeve, lace top and white taffeta skirt lent itself perfectly to Beatriz and TJ’s traditional cathedral ceremony and the second skirt of layered, blue tulle lent itself perfectly to the romantic garden vibes their Summerour Studio reception. Planning and design was by Taylor Dawn with floral and catering by Bold  and paper goods by Lairsey Paper Co. Just so much beauty in blue and you can see it all is these gorgeous images by Rustic White Photography.

What made the wedding special and unique?

Our day turned out to be everything we wanted and we owe all of that to our fantastic vendors! We got married at the Cathedral of Christ the King in Buckhead and our reception was at Summerour Studio. We fell in love with Summerour Studio when we saw it because of the beautiful courtyard that makes you feel like you are in Europe and we loved the rustic look of the interior of the building. Everything was simple, elegant and with a pop of blue!

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

I tried everything! I didn’t go into the process with a vision, but I quickly became fond of the idea of separates and wanted a simple and elegant look. This worked well with my longtime dream of wearing blue at my wedding. My mom came down from NJ for a weekend and we went on a dress trying marathon (not even kidding!). At Kelly’s Closet in Atlanta, I quickly fell in love with the Lea Ann Belter separates – the detail on the lace top is amazing! On that same weekend, the Sentimentalist in Atlanta was having a Chantel Lauren trunk show with the blue Mae gown that I had always dreamed of trying on. Everything felt perfect once I had the blue skirt on and I knew it would pair perfectly with the Lea-Ann Belter lace top for the reception. It was a match that allowed me to have everything I wanted on my wedding day!

What was the most memorable part of the day?

My family is Spanish so we had our DJ play Spanish music before dinner as most of the wedding guests wouldn’t recognize the music and we wanted to play more recognizable songs after dinner. It started with all my family and some of our guests on the dance floor dancing to traditional Spanish music and next thing you know all of our friends and family joined!! It was so much fun and dance lessons were being given! Dinner had been served and everyone was still on the dance floor so the DJ asked if anyone planned on eating dinner and everyone laughed. That was a special moment for us and so much fun to see our family and friends coming together in support of Spanish traditions.

 

What was your something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue?

My dress was my something new and a bracelet from my Mom was my something borrowed. And my something blue – well that was everything! I love blue and I can’t thank Taylor (my wedding planner / everything) enough for helping make my crazy blue dreams come true. There were blue accents throughout the day and of course the blue skirt that I paired with my Lea Ann Belter top for the reception!

 

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

In Hoboken, NJ on the waterfront with two of our best friends! I grew up in NJ and we met and lived in Hoboken for four years before moving to Atlanta, GA. It is actually quite the funny story. We were staying with our friends Brooke and Alex who I’ve known since 5th grade. Brooke actually introduced T.J. and I as she went to Penn State with him. T.J. called Brooke and Alex earlier that week so they strategized that we’d walk along the waterfront in Hoboken and then head to my favorite sushi spot for dinner. We were walking around the water and T.J. asked if Brooke and Alex could get a picture of us, my response: “Come on – we aren’t tourists! We lived here forever!” I finally gave in for one picture and immediately started walking away completely not realizing that T.J. was getting down on one knee to propose! It was an easy yes! Hoboken will always have a special place in our hearts and this moment solidified it.

Designer and planner, Toast Events, sees each editorial shoot as a challenge in the art of transforming spaces. By choosing to explore untapped elements which most would overlook as mundane, the team flips the narrative making something beautiful out of nothing. For this particular shoot at Ottawa Art Gallery they incorporated a floral element in a completely new and artistic way. They enlisted the help of We Are Pollen Nation and focused on minimalistic sensibilities to design a floating glass table for the bride and groom. Foraged greenery and large white blooms create a simple yet stunning statement. Accented by a black and white palette in the stationery by Little North Company and a textural fine-art-inspired cake by Cake Whisperer, the look is both timeless and totally fresh. Check out all the details in these stunning film images by Lace & Luce.

Planner and designer Jennifer Fox Weddings set out with a goal to highlight simple and understated elegance in Paris—to create images that are tastefully vintage, romantic, and elegant while maintaining a touch of contemporary charm. Traditional Parisian venues were captured in a less conventional way, so that the shoot isn’t centered around the idea of a particular city, but instead gives the feeling of romance throughout old-world Europe. Floral design is by Wild Blossom, stationery and calligraphy by French Blue and cakes by Synie’s Cakes Paris. Loving the incorporation of reds, pinks and blues and it’s all captured beautifully here by Lindley Battle Photography.

The inspiration behind this BEYOND-gorgeous styled shoot was romance and femininity with rich tones and botanicals woven throughout. Planner and designer, Bellafare‘s vision started with the luxe velvet linen and bell jar terrariums and grew from there. Design details, including florals by Flowershop, and stationery by Dulles Design, exude a certain softness but maintain a touch of modernity as seen in the table adorned with mustard and blush candles and organic florals with blush, yellow, and deep rose tones that appeared as if they were growing out of the bell jars creating an almost fairy-tale accent. There is not a single details that isn’t an absolute dream and it’s our pleasure to share these film images from photographer Josh Morehouse.
