This post is going to be a little dessert heavy, but who’s complaining about that? Everything is so detailed, it’s almost too pretty to eat! We’re loving the soft pink, mint green, and yellow color scheme, with gold all over to add that touch of luxury. A perfect palette for Spring or Summer weddings!

From the Photographer: The style of this session is rustic with a modern twist, and the theme is romance in a summer garden. The set is decorated with soft and fresh colors, such as yellows, pinks, and greens, with gold details being the emphasis to depict the luxurious feel. We found this little secret garden in the urban city; it is so quiet and beautiful, and is a perfect location for a whimsical wedding.

Our planner, D’Love Affair Wedding & Events, sourced all vendors and made this session happen. The set is provided and designed by Past Pieces, from small details like vintage books and suitcases, to big items like the wooden doors, and beautiful couches. We love the rustic dessert table, supported by wine barrels.

The beautiful wedding dress, from Pronovias’ new 2015 collection, is provided by Clara Couture Bridal. This dress features an unique loose strap design, with elegant bead work. The jewelleries, designed by Mirror Mirror Bijoux, also complimented the pink sequins dress with its unique colors and textures.

The grand dessert and cake is all designed and handcrafted by Kitty Wong Pastry Shop. The wedding cake, also the main focus of the dessert table, is made with exquisite details like ruffles and gold sequins. The cake was painted with white and gold watercolor effects, and decorated with pink and ivory flowers; all the details are handmade and are edible!

We’re so smitten with this winter styled shoot that draws inspiration from fairytales and German influences. The black, white, and red color scheme with pops of greenery works perfectly with the snowy landscape. And the bride’s braided hairstyle makes her look like a German princess. This is a winter wedding we’d love to attend!

From the Photographer: A styled winter wedding based on the charm of nostalgic German Christmas traditions and fairytales of long ago. Heidi and Markus embark on a journey to get married on a magical winter day in the forest. Leaving breadcrumb trails behind them (in case they get lost!) they discover a witches hut decorated in candy, and even St. Nick has left some goodies in a pair of shoes for them (an old Christmas tradition in Germany)! They say their vows amidst an archway of candy, then head into the hut for their whimsical reception – complete with snow globes, pretzels, and lots of holiday treats and warmth by the fire!
-loosely inspired by the Brothers Grimm tale of Hansel and Gretel (without the sibling factor!)

Alanna and Josh really knocked their wedding out of the park, adding so much of their personalities into their big day. So much color and so many fun details in this wedding! We’re loving all the wildflower arrangements and their custom invite!

From their Photographer: Let me prepare you for all of the gorgeousness [above]! Alanna and Josh’s wedding had sooo many amazing details and heartfelt moments. It was seriously a photographer’s dream. I love love LOVE their custom invitations that depict them and their venue. Super cute! I also loved their vintage details on every single table. Alanna’s dress was very chic and unique. Their ceremony was under a huge oak tree, and their rustic style barn reception, complete with string lights, was very romantic. Josh’s face when he first saw Alanna walking up the isle was priceless. I love day time weddings and the gorgeous natural light it provides. They hired a folk singer, which really fit the mood! Everything went perfectly, and I was so glad to have the honor of capturing their wedding day.
How they met: Alanna and Joshua met at Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Slidell when they were in the youth program. They became friends, and after a couple of weeks, began dating.
How he proposed: Josh proposed on the Riverwalk at sunset in New Orleans. They were sitting there watching the boats, and then Alanna heard their song (Unforgettable by Nat King Cole.) As Alanna turned around, she saw her sister with their dog Stella and Stella had the ring tied to her collar on a bow. Josh knelt down and tried to get his speech out, but he had to cut it short since he was so nervous and choked up.

This backyard wedding was made with so much love by the couple’s family. The birch arch was made by the bride’s father for their beach ceremony across the street from their home. Their tented reception was decorated by the bride’s sister and offered yard games like giant-sized jenga. We’re loving the fun and relaxed vibe of this wedding!

From their Photographer: Prepare to feast your eyes on this incredibly delicious wedding!! Joe and Christina are quite the stunning pair and everything about their wedding complimented their every move. This amazing wedding took place at the beach across the street from Christina’s parents house with a custom white birch arbor lovingly made by the brides father, Gary. Their reception was held in the back yard, which was fantastically decorated by Christina’s sister, Michelle. Michelle thought of everything. She has such a creative mind and you could see the love and adoration she has for her sister and new brother-in-law in each and every piece she designed and displayed. The yard was decked out with yard games, particularly a life sized Jenga game, which was masterfully played by the wedding party. Scroll down to see all the fun. Everything was put together wonderfully by friends and family, making this day a huge success.
