Inspiration for your road to the altar


Brittany and Cody were married the day before Halloween, in an adorable and funky affair. The couple used black and white feathers throughout their decor, and opted for some black and white damask runners as well (which of course, I love)! The hand drawn heart they used throughout the reception is just lovely, and I really like that they were able to carry off a Halloween wedding with just the right amount of seasonal decor.

Alex and Xan (who actually also share a name, Alexander and Alexandra) are dancers who fell in love while they were studying their craft in school. They now own a dance company together and were married this October at a 19th century Country Club in Ohio. Xan decided to wear her mother’s wedding dress for the occasion, and the couple carefully choreographed the steps to their own first dance. The first dance was filled with numerous references to things in both families’ romantic pasts (for example, the fact that Xan’s grandparents met in a revolving door is referenced in a long slow circling around each other). I love all the playful images throughout their wedding day – truly such a lovely event.

There is so much to love about Shelby & John’s lovely wedding (not to mention the bride’s fabulous name from one of my favorite movies). The couple opted for rustic decor, which included the bride’s green and white bouquet and wreaths adorning the doors of the church. Various lanterns at the reception set a romantic tone, and be sure not to miss that amazing cake! It’s not often that you see chocolate wedding cakes and this one might just be my new favorite.
