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

Liz and Nick met while vacationing in Belize and—although they lived in different states at the time—the rest was history! The couple shares a love of travel, so much of their wedding day at Wells Reserve in Coastal Maine was inspired by their trips together including their signature cocktails and Tuscan, family-style dinner. The visual details planned by Emily Elizabeth Events included beautiful pastel florals by Pretty Flowers, adorable stationery by Rosemary Snow Voulgaris, an scene-stealing oysterbar and an incredible backless Sarah Seven dress. Lucky for us, all the pretty—along with some dramatic sea breeze—was captured by talented film photographer Jamie Mercurio Photography.

from the photographer: Liz and Nick’s wedding was a truly beautiful day – it was a stunning and happy affair complete with all kinds of weather! A summer rainstorm cleared up right before the ceremony began, and Liz walked down the aisle to the Beatles “Here Comes the Sun”! After dinner, a giant rainbow arched over the reception tent. It was like something out of a movie!

Liz looked stunning in an open-back dress designed by Sarah Seven that was customized for her! There were many other beautiful personal touches to the day: Liz’s bouquet included a piece of the same plant that was in her grandmother’s, mother’s, and sister’s wedding bouquets, their ceremony was performed by a friend, and their gorgeous invitation suite was also designed by a friend.

Bride Katie, a journalist, has traveled the world chasing stories and residing in places like Abu Dhabi with her groom Ben. But when it came time to plan their wedding, the couple sought the comforts of home—Katie’s parents’ home of St. Michaels, Maryland to be exact. The couple spent many a weekend in the quaint Eastern Shore town while living in D.C., and knew it would provide the perfect backdrop for the elegant yet relaxed celebration they enlisted Kari Rider Events to help them plan. As a nod to the maritime culture of St. Michaels, the team including florist Seaberry Farm, contrasted brilliant whites with hints of dusty blue and gold to create a scene that perfectly complemented the venue’s coastal vibe. Photographer Perry Vaile worked her fine art magic capturing all the beautiful details and scenes of the day, including some stunning bride and groom portraits in between rain showers.

Romantic, preppy, classic, simple all describe the wedding day of Iris and Joshua at the beautiful, historic Allan House in downtown Austin, Texas. The couple enlisted Joyful Details to plan an intimate affair that focused on the celebration, friends and family most of whom traveled great distances to be there for their big day. We have Exquisite Petals to thank for the punchy pink floral eye candy that contrasted beautifully with the bold blue stripes in the preppy event stationery by Remember November Shop. The genius behind the lens was Stephanie Hunter Photography and we know you’ll love the way she captured Iris and Josh’s lovely celebration.

form the photographer: They chose to serve local brews and they incorporated both Southwest and Asian flavors in their menu to incorporate both the bride & groom’s cultural backgrounds. For their wedding favors, they had fun pie pops in the shape of Texas Longhorns (Bride) and Arkansas Razorbacks (Groom) to represent their alma maters. For their guest book, they had guests pose for Polaroid selfies and then hang them on a frame that they handmade themselves with clothespins.

Their altar was streamlined and simple with the stone ledge that encircled them, adorned with floral arrangements & candles. However, my personal favorite design elements from their wedding were the incredible flowers from Exquisite Petals, the classically designed signage from Remember November and the bride’s understated yet gorgeous gown from Pronovias. At the end of the relaxed evening, the newlyweds were ushered through a sparkler getaway to their “Just Married” pedicab where they waved farewell to their loved ones while their friends and family cheered them on! Kristi Treadwell with Joyful Details did an outstanding job coordinating all of our fabulous vendors.

To make their sophisticated beach wedding a reality, Alice and Brandon enlisted Grey Collective member Moana Events who embellished the gorgeous Oahu ocean-front space with glam details and lush pink florals by Steven Boyle Designs. A personal favorite detail of are are the traditional parasol-turned-photo-props that were supplied to the guests—so adorable and captured to perfection by the beautiful photography of Jana Dillon.

If Bella and Tom’s Oxfordshire private estate wedding is the quintessential English wedding, then we’re encouraging all you garden party brides to take note of the way the Brittish do nuptials. As photographer Inspired By Love notes, their location was “just picture perfect and not unlike a setting from a Jane Austen novel with its expansive lawns, a folly and white bridge over a gently flowing river.” Um—YES. And, of course, we love the floral-driven details pulled together by wedding stylist & coordinator London Bride. The illustrated stationery by Fin Fellowes is delightful and the florals by Foxgloves & Glory are prefect in a pastel palette. Lucy for us, Inspired By Love was behind the lense to capture all the dreamy, garden moments of Bella and Tom’s big day!

from Inspired By Love: This couple wanted a quintessentially English wedding and were lucky enough to be able to hold their day on a private estate in Oxfordshire which was just picture perfect and not unlike a setting from a Jane Austen novel with its expansive lawns, a folly and white bridge over a gently flowing river. The setting echoed the couple’s style perfectly with the groom and groomsmen in traditional ’tails’ suits and the bride in an elegant, feminine gown with the most beautiful bouquet! There was definitely a gentle floral theme with the bridesmaids in delicate floral printed dresses and floral garlands.

The couple held their ceremony at a local church that was just a few moments away from the where the reception was held. The quaint church was decorated simply and elegantly with foliage and candles. The couple exited the church to a walkway of cheers and confetti!

After the ceremony guests mingled on the immaculate lawns while they drank local ales and sipped on Champagne. For the ladies we arranged with the talented florists Fox Glove & Glory a floral crown station so that guests could have a go (with a helping hand!) at making their own garland to enjoy for the rest of the celebrations. So many girls did and they were wearing them long into the night!

Making the most of the beautiful scenery, the couple even hopped into a rowing boat with friends for a little ride down the river, a brave bride in her wedding dress but she managed to do so unscathed!

The delicious wedding breakfast by Eat Five Star and reception were held in a stunning and airy Sperry Tent; inside was styled elegantly and in keeping with the English setting.  The florists set the long tables with grey linen and pretty pastel floral arrangements with dahlias, roses, scented stocks and foxgloves and fern with seasonal fruits and scattered candles. The pretty stationery with bespoke monogram and crest complimented the color scheme with its hand illustration by Fin Fellows, and each guest found their seat from a hanging escort card arrangement with calligraphy by Judy Broad from the steps leading to the tent. As guests took their seats along the edges of the tent, as British tradition encourages, ladies hung up their hats and fascinators from pegs as guests wrapped up in blankets to escape the slight chill in the air.

The couple had a close friend make the three tier cake which was again topped with fresh flowers to tie in with the scheme. The other side of a grand central bar was the dancing area with large light up letters from Doris Loves and casual seating for weary dancing feet! The bride slipped into a Self Portrait dress for the evening and guests continued to dance late into the night (the benefit of being in the middle of nowhere!) to a DJ with live saxophone duo.
