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

Lanikuhonua was a natural choice for Jamie and Trey’s destination wedding for a bride who grew up in the Hawaiian islands. The tropical affair, designed by Grey Collective member Moana Events is one for the books. We can not peel our eyes away from the tablescapes at the tented reception—runners consisting purely of roses! Passion Roots florist continued to create magic at every turn with the pink and deep coral palette included a stunning floral arbor and centerpieces. June Cochran Photography was on had to capture all the rose-colored happiness of Jamie and Trey’s big day—your’e going to love it!

From the Wedding Planner:  This stylish and fun wedding took place at Lanikuhonua with a beautiful beachfront backdrop surrounded by Hawaii’s most elegant foliage. Jamie and Trey’s inspiration came from the bright pinks, oranges, and corals of a sunset. Jamie wanted to incorporate her love of flowers into her wedding day and worked with her wedding planners to drape the tables and altar with ferns, peonies, dahlias, and roses. Trey, along with Moana Events continued the wow-factor and surprised his new bride with signage displaying sweet sentiments as she entered the property. The couple also chose Laurenish Designs to create custom hand painted watercolor stationery that matched their invitations to display items such as the dinner menu and cocktail selection for the evening. During the reception, accents of gold complimented the customized place setting of ferns and fuchsia pink place card napkin wraps.

The bride grew up in the Hawaiian islands and wanted to share some of her favorite things with her destination guests, so the reception also featured local elements; a poké bar for dinner, malasadas – a Portuguese doughnut for dessert, and a live Hawaiian band.

The love the light, bright mood of this beautiful shoot from Connie Balluff Photography. The peach, blush and pink peony bouquet by The Lovely Ave pops against the historic, white Utah State Capital building and the relaxed, textured details like the cropped top and tulle skirt by Janay Marie and the organic stone headpiece by Danani Handmade give a fresh boho vibe. Lucky for us, Connie Balluff  was behind the lens scapturing all the details of this lovely editorial.

Arden and Jordan’s wedding was a family-focused fête held in the always-picturesque city of Charleston, South Carolina. We’re loving the focus on classic details like the bride’s custom lace Kate McDonald gown, the leaf green taffeta bridesmaid’s gowns, a stunning ceremony at the historic Grace Episcopal Church and a cheery green, blue and peach floral palette. The couple enlisted the talent of Ashley Seawell Photography to capture all the details of their wedding day and private club reception and we know all you classic brides will love it!

What made the wedding special and unique? 

I’m not sure I can boil it down to even one or two things! But, perhaps the most unique thing is that the same person who married my parents thirty-seven years ago graciously married us. We were so thankful to be able to share that with him and with my parents.

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

The gown was a gorgeous custom Kate McDonald creation that we discovered at Southern Protocol Boutique in Charleston. We had looked several places already and had a difficult time finding something that I wanted: lace, ball gown, and something I hadn’t seen in the blogs and magazines. Michelle at Southern Protocol placed me in a short white lace dress by Kate McDonald and paired it with a large silk ball gown skirt. We ended up adding a removable silk bow, made some other tweaks with the short dress to give it an open back, and voila! I removed the skirt and bow for the reception, and still have the short white dress in my closet to wear during the summer.

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal? 

It feels like almost everything we did for the wedding made it truly us. My mom and I planned it all together, and everything had its own personal touch. For the ceremony, I wore my maternal grandmother’s locket and my paternal grandmother’s bracelet. Almost everyone involved in the ceremony was family, and my mom and I hand picked each song, each hymn, and each reading. For the reception, the flowers were done by a family friend, and the flower vases and urns came from my mom’s boutique. As friends signed our guestbook, we had pictures of our parents and grandparents on their wedding day. Nearly everything was extremely personal, and I couldn’t imagine it any other way.

What was the most memorable part of the day? 

Walking down the aisle with my dad. Family is extraordinarily important to me, and this was the moment I had played over in my head for weeks on end leading up to the ceremony. When the organ piped through the church and we started walking towards the altar with so many of our friends and family looking on, it was tremendously emotional and perfect. I’m not sure I’ll ever forget that feeling of overwhelming gratefulness and excitement.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

We met at a soccer game with friends. After Jordan had talked my ear off, I was about to never speak to him again, but my mom insisted. Fast forward almost two years, and Jordan asked me to go to dinner with him on Friday (or usual weekly date). We walked beneath the oaks in the Old Village, out to Alhambra Hall and back, all while Jordan strangely asked if there were any docks around. I knew at that point that he had wanted to ask, but he was likely thwarted at Alhambra by the throngs of dogs and their humans. After dinner, he took me down to the Pitt Street Bridge, pointed nervously at the Ravenel Bridge (“Look at all the cars! They look like ants!”), and, shivering from the February cold, got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.

We’re celebrating the official start to the new year with a fresh and elegant inspiration shoot set at Summerour Studio in Atlanta. The details, planned and designed by Taylor Dawn, are rooted in nature like the soft, natural florals filled with the Hellebore bloom by Bloomin’ Bouquets and the calligraphy and floral hand-illustrated invitations by Olive Juice Press. The tablescape is both classic and comforting with natural linens and relaxed palette. We’re loving the inspiring mood of the shoot—a fresh start to a new year, and it’s all captured to perfection by the uber-talented Rustic White Photography.

What made the wedding special and unique? 

The wedding was so unique to us because we were able to incorporate my Indian traditions, while still having my cousin and one of Jeremy’s closest friends marry us. It was absolutely the best of both worlds. To also be able to have it take place in our favorite place, Naples, FL, was a dream come true.

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

My gown was designed in Bombay, India. I had a vision of what I wanted and was able to create it in tandem with the designer. I can’t decide which outfit I liked the best, but they were all beautiful in their own way!

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal? 

Having my cousin officiate the wedding was something very special to me. I also loved the fact that we got married in Naples. Growing up, I moved so many times in my life and Naples is the one place that has been a constant for the past 10 years of my life. This is also a place that Jeremy and I started visiting early on in our relationship. I am so grateful that we can continue visiting this wonderful place as we grow together.

What was the most memorable part of the day? 

One of the best memories I have is watching the Barrat from the balcony with ALL 18 of my bridesmaids. The second I heard the beat of the drum, my heart started to pound – it was as if I just realized I was actually getting married that day! Of course there are so many other memories, but that is one that I will never forget.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

Jeremy and I met in Cabo San Lucas, MX when I was only 20 years old! I was down there on spring break, when I happened to come across Jeremy. Although he also attended Michigan State University, he was actually down there interning at a hotel. We met through mutual friends, however I never thought in a million years that he would actually be my future husband. Fast forward seven years later, we moved to New York City and he proposed in Gramercy Park – one of the only private parks in the city – a day I will remember forever.
