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

Stephanie and Mark’s rooftop reception at The Cape offered a 360-degree view of Cabo and a stunning sunset-inspired color palette for a beach-front celebration coordinated by About Love and captured by Ana and Jerome. We’re loving the colors of the tablescape accented by soft, feminine florals by Florenta. The overall look is the perfect blend for the bride who appreciates both the textural elegance of a European reception and all the scenery of a destination wedding.

What made the wedding special and unique?

It’s really hard to pinpoint what was so special about our wedding because everything felt special to us! The intimate rooftop with a 360 degree view of Cabo where our reception was held is a good start. The location and views from the The cape hotel in Cabo is just to die for. We didn’t want our wedding to be typical and we made a lot of choices based on making the experience enjoyable for our guests.

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

I found the Monique Lhuillier gown at Bridal Galleria in San Francisco. It’s definitely not what I had in mind but the second I put it on I fell in love with its ethereal feel and how comfortable it was.

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

We had an amazing violinist and guitarist duo for a few hours, but after that our very close friend DJ’ed the party.  So before the wedding we carefully curated the playlist to be a solid mix of dance music interspersed with classic vocals and eclectic tunes everyone could enjoy.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

Most memorable part of the day was definitely saying I do. Our amazing friend Steve officiated the wedding for us and he did such a great job!

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

Mark and I met through friends but he knew about me for about a year before he got the chance to actually meet me. When we met we definitely had an instant connection. He proposed when we were in London for New Year’s Eve 4 years exactly after the day we met.

Kendall and Luis were married at Eden Gardens in Moorpark, CA in a celebration that blended both their Mexican and American heritage. CMG Weddings & Events led the design incorporating beautiful and romantic white florals by Florals by Isabelle and we’re obsessed with the pineapple theme—a reference to the groom’s last name: Piña. SO adorable. Check out all the pretty details in these gorgeous images by Lucas Rossi Photography

What made the wedding special and unique?

We were getting married, that alone made the entire thing special and unique to us! Being that my husband’s family is Mexican and mine is primarily American, we had to accommodate for both cultures. While it seemed a bit stressful at first, it’s one of the reasons the wedding was so special. Our ceremony was in English, but incorporated some parts in Spanish. Like a poem by the popular Mexican Poet, Pablo Neruda. We had our DJ play a mixed variety of music including Latin songs, which everyone enjoyed dancing too, even those who claimed, “I don’t know how to dance to this”. The entire thing made it easy for both our families come together and celebrate our wedding.

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

I found it the first day at the second store. I had tried on a lot and somewhat liked a couple of them, but the second I put this one on I knew. The girl helping me knew and she asked me before I left what I thought about this dress, I told her “this is the one” before anyone else saw it. Best part, I didn’t even know what I was looking for, it was nothing like what I thought I’d be wearing, but I couldn’t have dreamed up a better one. The dress is Pronovias from The White Dress in Corona Del Mar.

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

My husband’s last name is Piña, which means Pineapple. We decided to add pineapple details throughout the wedding decor. We didn’t want to go overboard with the pineapple touches. For example we used real baby pineapples with tags for our escort cards, pineapples on our signage and napkins! Guests loved the miniature pineapples!

What was the most memorable part of the day?

The entire day was memorable. Our immediate family and most of the wedding party arrived two days before the wedding day, for the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. The following day the men went off to golf, while the ladies went wine tasting. So, our wedding felt more like a three day event, with the actual wedding being the final hurrah. With that said, for the two of us one of the most memorable parts was when we sneaked away, during dinner, to take our sunset photos. Our photographer, Lucas Rossi, really made us feel comfortable and it felt more like a time for us to have fun together, than an actual photo shoot.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

We met on a Friday night, at a bar, while celebrating the birthday of my husband’s cousin. Neither one of us wanted to go out that night, but destiny forced us out of our homes and made us cross paths. One year seven months later, we got engaged. Our engagement happened on a Friday evening, at one of our favorite restaurant’s (Beachcombers in Corona Del Mar). We had a long conversation that night, where we discussed our plans for our future and what we each wanted out of life. This was followed by a nice walk along the beach, where my husband popped the question!

Ever wonder what the wedding of a floral industry insider looks like? Well look no further than Shelby and David’s day at Providence Hill Farm. The bride’s sister, and owner of Tulip, filled the day with burgundy dahlias, apricot ranunculus, king preotea and romantic antique garden roses and accented with gorgeous rentals from Lovegood Wedding & Event Rentals. The details were completed with flea-market-finds by the mother-of-the-bride (think hundreds of antique glassware and brass candlesticks). Lucky for us, Beth Morgan Photography was on hand to capture all the lovely boho vibes.

What made the wedding special and unique? 

Well for starters I work for a floral design company, Tulip Floral + Goods, and it was pretty special to be a part of something that I’ve become so passionate about. Burgundy dahlias, apricot ranunculus, king preotea, romantic antique garden roses were just a few of my favorites. So Lesley Frascogna, my mentor/best friend/sister & owner of Tulip made it happen. She absolutely knocked it out of the park with florals.

We tried to source a lot of the unique decor ourselves. My mom started thrift shopping the second I got engaged. I’m not joking when I say that everyday for almost a year she was in every single flea market remotely close to Jackson. She collected nearly 100 vintage colored drinking glasses & a ridiculous amount of brass candlesticks for the seated dinner at the reception. We indigo dyed table runners the day before the wedding because that’s just what you do, right? The rest of the unique pieces came from Lovegood. I knew from the moment I saw Lauren’s collection of beautiful furniture/decor that she was my answer for everything I envisioned on my wedding day. The antique rugs, lounge furniture, and handmade wooden tables played a huge role in the overall feel of the reception. It was a total dream.

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

I knew I wanted different. I knew I wanted long sleeve. So I was casually stalking Pinterest looking for wedding inspiration when I first found out about BHLDN. The rest is history. I immediately found the dress I wanted and wouldn’t even consider looking around at local dress shops. It was a dusty rose color. It had a high neckline. It had intricate beaded embellishments. It was the one. I made an appointment with a stylist for the following week. My mom, my sister, and I drove to the nearest BHLDN location in Atlanta and the rest really is history.

My bridesmaids all wore Show Me Your Mumu in different styles & colors. My bridesman wore a beautiful blue suit with a floral printed tie to match the wedding flowers.

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal? 

Aside from all of the boho/antique touches, the thing that stands out the most to me is the ceremony & reception music. My husband and I are both huge music people. We followed a band all around the country at one point. (Note: We didn’t have our basset hound or bills to pay at the time). So music played a huge role in the feel of the entire day & night. I knew I did not want traditional wedding music. So I put together a playlist on Spotify for the ceremony music, which included Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Ray Charles. I walked down the aisle to Louis Armstrong’s version of La Vie En Rose. We had The Patrick Harkins Band out of Jackson, MS play at the reception. They even learned our first dance songs beforehand. Our first dance: Widespread Panic’s version of Genesis and the father daughter song: Bob Dylan’s slow version of Forever Young. It was so so special.

What was the most memorable part of the day? 

The most memorable part of the day for me would probably have to be when our photographer (Beth Morgan) sneaked us away after our first look to take some pictures of just us two. I could never have imagined how intimate and special those moments would be. Simply just being together away from all of the wedding day chaos, and completely forgetting the camera was even there turned into pure magic.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

We met at a local outfitters shop here in Jackson. He sold me a pair of shoes and somehow got my number shortly after.

We planned a trip to Telluride, CO for a music festival in the summer of 2015. After a missed flight and a few minor meltdowns, we made it to Colorado. We pulled over at a rest stop overlooking a beautiful mountain range somewhere in Buena Vista, CO. Before I knew it he was on one knee asking me to do life with him forever. I laughed, he cried, and we celebrated with our favorite band in the cutest little mountain town.

 Jamie and Matt were wed at the beautiful waterside Thousand Acre Farm surrounded by their closest friends and family. Every detail of the day was carefully curated by A Styled Fete (a premier event & wedding design company based in Chadds Ford, PA) to truly capture the easy-going, fun-loving nature of the couple.

 

  

From the moment guests arrived they were greeted by personal touches that referenced the couple’s love of all things whimsical. The seating chart was adorned with stunning blooms and featured water-color portraits of their beloved pups accompanied by the directions “Please Fetch Your Seat”.

  

The waterside ceremony space was decorated with a beautiful array of floral garlands that set the scene for touching, hand-written vows. The mint and blush color palette flowed perfectly through the ceremony space into the bride’s bouquet and other details. Her invitation suite was simple and was accented with floral envelopes. Succulents were placed in floral designs and around the venue to bring in beautiful blue-green tones as well. The entire space was transformed by their choice of decor and made the location perfect for their big day!

As the majority of Jenny and Pete’s guests were traveling to Philadelphia, they wanted to offer an entire weekend event that extended before and beyond the nuptials. They chose the riverfront mansion Glen Foerd as the venue for the big day, with its historic charm and vintage glam. The stunning bride fell in love with a sparkly Berta Bridal gown with an 8 foot (!) detachable train, because who wouldn’t?! Feast your eyes on the elegant soft-hued florals by Cottage Florist, including the over-the-top gorgeous arch. We are so thankful that Ashley Errington Photography was there to expertly capture all the fun, classic, and beautiful elements.

What made the wedding special and unique? 

90% of our guests had to travel to attend our wedding in Philadelphia, where I grew up. We planned events Friday evening through Sunday evening, so it was really nice to prolong the moment. Our family lives pretty far apart from one another, and our college and high school friends might not have been together as a big group in years, so everyone appreciated the time to unplug and enjoy a mini 48-hour reunion.

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

I work at Hudson’s Bay, which owns Saks Fifth Avenue, so the SFA bridal salon was my first and only stop! Luckily they carry Berta Bridal, whose dresses I’d been ogling on Instagram for months. I tried on every Berta style they carried, but ultimately the sparkle and 8ft detachable train won me over.

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal? 

Our seating chart was a really big hit! We bought a room divider with 15 double sided, rotating picture frames, and on each we made one side a table, and the other a picture of the two of us throughout our relationship. People had a lot of fun looking back on photos from college while finding out who they’d be sitting with. Also, Pete and one of his groomsmen DJ’d our killer after-party which stretched into the early hours of the morning.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

To be honest, the whole thing was a blur. A wonderful, loving, and fantastic blur. Can’t wait to get the videos back!

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

We met while we were in college at Georgetown University. We both worked at the Midnight Mug, a coffee shop located in the library. Fast forward five years, while living together in NYC, we were walking along the Hudson River as a beautiful bride posed for photos with the Statue of Liberty in the background. I asked Pete, “When’s that going to be me?” But little did I know that Pete had a ring in his pocket and with that he was down on one knee and proposed.
