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

Set in the hills of Julian, California, Jenny and Jacob exchanged vows at Sacred Mountain Retreat  on the patio overlook, with the rolling hills and mountain fog in the background. Simple and elegant, the ranch house was a lovely atmosphere for a wedding, and beautifully decorated by Simply Elegant Weddings. The two said “I Do” in front of a wooden circle that was built by the bride’s brother-in-law. We’re loving the warmth of all the wood details and the understated black and white palette. The celebration is both relaxed and lovely and captured perfectly by Shelly Anderson Photography.

Kat and Zachary’s wedding at SmogShoppe is adorable to the max. The low-key couple stayed true to the beauty of the SmogShoppe and brought in small pieces of themselves – specifically their pups and nods to the Lincoln Park Zoo (the location of their first date and engagement.) We’re especially loving the animal-inspired table numbers and escort cards. The yellow florals by The Little Branch and letterpress stationery by Creative Letterpress, Inc. are lighthearted and fun and the photos by Grey Collective member Mandee Johnson Photography capture all the details and delight. Enjoy!

Zachary and Kat are two very private and low-key people filled to the brim with love and sweetness. They say in a perfect world they would’ve run off and eloped. With Kat being the only girl in her family and Zachary being the youngest of four, they wanted the wedding to be a family affair. Their best friend of 8 years, David Marx, (and who was largely responsible for them being together) married them among some of their closest friends and loved ones.

Kat – “There was such a certainty when it came to exchanging our vows ­ it was weirdly grounding. It seemed like all the emotion in the room came together to make one, big shared feeling. It’s impossible to put into words, but it was really something.”

From the photographer: They stayed true to the beauty of the SmogShoppe and brought in small pieces of themselves – specifically their pups and nods to Lincoln Park (first date/engagement spot). They incorporated their two dogs as much and as tastefully as possible, since they couldn’t be at the venue. They got a prime spot on the SmogShoppe’s projector, keeping a watchful eye on the whole party and showed up in the photo booth.

They designed all of the the paper goods: save-the-dates, invites, envelopes, escort cards, table numbers, menus, etc. Wanting to pay homage to SmogShoppe’s gorgeous succulent walls they continued the theme throughout their stationery. The table numbers had be animals! A nod to their first date being at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago and also where Zachary proposed.

The floral design was aimed to blend seamlessly with the design of SmogShoppe. A color scheme of mostly white, sage greens with pops of yellow. The wedding party was in navy and grey to contrast with the green of the succulents and the rusty red of the building.

Another key element was our bartender, Ricky Yarnall. He worked with Kat and Zack to make a stellar menu that reflected our personalities and love of cocktails. He really knows his stuff.  EcoCaters were a dream: down-to-earth and great eats. Including late night snacks like hot pretzels and vanilla ice cream using Zachary’s family recipe!

From Jurgita BridalA girl is about to cross the bridge. She is barefoot, yet graceful. Calm, yet solemn. She might be just catching her breath in solitude, hiding in nature, moments before her own wedding. You can almost hear the crowds somewhere not far away, behind the trees on the green field, friends and relatives chatting while seated around rustic tables, waiting for the bride to appear from across the bridge. Or she might have escaped everything and everyone, confidently waiting for the love of her life to show up so they could elope.

In many cultures, bridges are seen not just as a way to reach the destination, but also as a strong symbol of transition: to the opposite bank of the river, to another stage of life, or, in this particular case, from being a girl in a magical forest to becoming a wife.

The photo shoot was inspired by the wild nature of the small village, Josvainiai , in Lithuania –the hometown of photographer Monika Dovidaite. The nature surrounding Josvainiai was a perfect background to highlight the ethereal looks of the wedding garments. Soft blush and creamy ivory, multilayered tulles and silks, wild flowers and decadent jewelry –all this is a tasteful mix for a free spirited bohemian bride-to-be.

It is fascinating how the mood of a dress can be changed by wearing different accessories. The frail and delicate silver wreath gives an impression of dreamy innocence, while replacing it with Swarovski crystal earrings immediately shifts the look towards royal grace and drama. The same can be said about the hair –in some images it is let down, looking completely natural and creating a relaxed mood. And in some looks, casually tied up hair make it all look elegant.

Lace, river, pearls, tranquility, tulle, blush, Nordic forest, embroideries, wild flowers–all this subtly blends into the graceful perfection of several fairy-like bridal looks. The make-up is flawless, the jewelry looking rich and sumptuous, but balanced out towards the boho style with generous amounts of blossoming peonies and irises.

And last, but not least – the most subtle version of a non-conformist bride-to-be created with a minimalist combo of plain white shorts matched to the embroidered lace top. The look is finished with a pair of splendid pearl earrings.

Brittany and Mark’s wedding day at Keswick Vineyards is lovely, easygoing and romantic, which is exactly what the couple wanted. “If we were to plan our perfect date, we’d go to a local vineyard, enjoy a bottle of wine, and sample as much food as we could from whichever food truck was parked out at the vineyard that day — so that’s exactly what we arranged for our wedding,” says bride Brittany. We’re especially loving the  the bride’s dreamy Leanne Marshall gown which she customized with a local seamstress—GORG. The day was accented with lavender-hues bridal party and lovely florals by The Proper PetalAster and Olive Photography worked their magic behind the lens to capture a day filled with sunshine and big, beautiful smiles. Enjoy!

What made the wedding special and unique?

Our wedding day was romantic and easygoing. We were given a budget from our parents and it was entirely up to us to manage it wisely. We planned and designed every detail ourselves, with our priority always being to make sure our wedding day was an authentic reflection of us. If we were to plan our perfect date, we’d go to a local vineyard, enjoy a bottle of wine, and sample as much food as we could from whichever food truck was parked out at the vineyard that day — so that’s exactly what we arranged for our wedding. The result was truly a representation of the beauty and blissful simplicity of Virginia, as well as the romantic and fun loving nature of our relationship.

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

After trying on what seemed like hundreds of dresses, I fell in love with this dreamy Leanne Marshall gown. I made it my own by requesting to purchase it without the straps and worked with a local seamstress to add the slit and belt. My look was finished with an airy cathedral veil that my grandmother made.

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

It was a day full of unique details including the special roles we gave our family members (our sisters were our “flower girls”), the heirlooms sprinkled throughout the day (our cake knife was used to cut both my parents’ and grandparents’ wedding cakes), the equestrian touches (Mark is an avid equestrian so I wanted to give him something on our wedding day that tied into this passion — I found antique horse cuff links from the 1920’s that he loved!), and the sweetheart mirror (the calligraphy on the mirror matches the engraving inside Mark’s wedding band, “All the world to me” — a phrase in our first dance song, “Sugar Tree” by Simplified).

What was the most memorable part of the day?

Without a doubt the first look. I was surprised by how emotional it was and from that moment I had what felt like first date butterflies all over again and the biggest smile on my face. Another one of our most cherished memories was when my grandfather stood up at the beginning of the ceremony to lead us in prayer. Since I was a little girl, he has begun every family gathering with a blessing, so it meant the world to me to have him begin our wedding day the same way.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

Mark and I met in Los Angeles when a mutual friend, Greg introduced us. Greg and I went to high school together in Virginia and he and Mark attended Georgia Tech and also studied abroad together in France. As fate would have it, we all ended up on the West Coast and when I invited Greg to my birthday party one year, he asked if he could bring along a college buddy. The spark was instant between Mark and me and that night we made a marriage pact — a promise we’d get married if we were both still single at 30. We were engaged two years later and Greg was the best man in our wedding.
