Alex and Lawrence-Michael’s Vintage Mad Men-Inspired Wedding

0039

What are friends for, if not for lending their gorgeously lush, large California backyard for your fall, mid-century workplace-inspired wedding? “We had originally thought of an urban setting, but our friends shared pictures of their own wedding, and we asked if they would be willing to host ours,” Alex says. “We were so happy and honored they said yes!” As are we! Their brightly colored palette with vintage decor, featuring typewriters, time clocks and literary classics like “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” is the perfect nod to the Mad Men-era vibes they were hoping for. Take A Picture It Lasts Longer was there to capture the bold colors and bright smiles that made Alex and Lawrence-Michael’s day full of love.  (more…)

Glamorous Blue Ridge Mountain Woodland Wedding Inspiration

Today’s styled shoot feature is brought to us by the talented Laura Dee Photography who teamed up with the owners of Lonesome Valley, a gorgeous wedding space in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. The glam event design was styled by Verge Events and I love that it feels you just stumbled upon this romantic scene in the woods.

An amazing vintage-inspired bridal style (the accessories alone are to die for!), a styled drink station with bright yellow lemons and calla lilies and a picnic for two with sweeping views of the cliffs are just a few of the things you’ll be swooning over in this inspiration.  (more…)

Blake and Brendan’s Abandoned Train Station Engagement Shoot

We love a unique photo shoot, and this one at an abandoned train station for Brendan and Blake’s engagement is wonderfully memorable. On a fall day in Doylestown, Penn., the colors on the leaves surrounding the abandoned train station were just starting to change. Along the wood-lined tracks, old train cars sat forgotten, their exterior peeling and bruised. Inside, the structural foundation is all that remains of rows of seats that used to carry passengers along the railroad. Tyler Boye Photography captured the rich colors and captivating textures that served as a gorgeous background for these dapper men to show off their newly engaged status.

It’s our favorite time of the year, when pale toes slip into sandals for some much-needed vitamin D and legs and shoulders peek out from underneath long pants and sleeves into the warm air.

Elizabeth and Kristen’s Charleston Wedding

RRE31532When avid sailors Elizabeth and Kristen decided to tie the knot, it only made sense to incorporate nautical details into their wedding. The glowing couple got ready for the big day on separate boats, where one bride stepped into bright coral high heels and a laced-white dress and the other into light-brown boat shoes and a sweetheart-neckline gown tied together with a nautical blue ribbon. Before the ceremony, they stepped off their boats and onto the docks, which made the perfect place for their first look, and inside the venue, they said “I do” next to a wall of windows overlooking the marina filled with boats. Gillian Ellis Photography captured all the smiles, laughter and love on Elizabeth and Kirsten’s beautiful day. (more…)
