Gorgeous Outdoor Bridal Luncheon by Ashley Lynn Fry & Girl Photography

Happy Friday!!! And what a happy Friday it is…wait until you feast your eyes on the styled bridal luncheon by Ashley Lynn Fry and Girl Photography. We love, love, love the burlap, gorgeous vintage elements, and delectable sweets to perfectly complement the rustic and romantic setting.

From the photographer:

The inspiration for the shoot was an outdoor formal luncheon hosted by a bride for all her bridesmaids with rustic and vintage influences. The bride was modeled after someone who liked vintage elements that were a little more refined, soft, and with a hint of romance. She also had a love of the outdoors but it was important to her to a keep a somewhat formal feel despite the setting. She has a love of sweets and wanted the desserts to be light and reflective of the natural setting. The tablescape utilized different patterns of vintage red and white transferware, vintage crystal of different sizes, all accented with roses, peonies, snapdragons, and ranunculus florals in thrifted vintage wood boxes.

So inspiring! Have a good weekend East Coast Brides and thank you Girl Photography for sharing this gorgeous styled shoot with us!

New Jersey Autumn Wedding by Jenny Orsini Events

Good morning and happy Monday! Today we have another perfectly styled, New Jersey wedding submitted by Melissa of Jenny Orsini Events and captured by Jeff Tisman. Like any true Jersey girl, this bride loves a little sparkle- just look at those shoes! This glamourous, autumn wedding took place at the coveted Manor in West Orange. This popular New Jersey venue is booked years in advance. Keep reading to see why!

From the beautiful bride…

Being able to have the wedding ceremony outside was so important to us because we loved the ambiance of the grounds, and I was so thankful for no rain. It was a definitely a chilly evening, but I was so numb (from excitement!) by the time I got down the aisle to Brian. It was so beautiful, like a dream! It was incredibly romantic and our guests really loved the setting. Seeing every detail come together was just amazing. The pictures say it all!

From the event designer, Melissa Loiacono…

Jamie and Brian found venue perfection when they chose The Manor in West Orange, New Jersey, as it provided a unique mix of the traditional, with a touch of rustic elegance.
Having a wedding in October typically throws a couple into the traditions of a fall inspired affair…leaves, warm apple cider, and orange and red color palattes. Well, not for Jamie and Brian!
The wedding design was consistant in its array of of vivid yellows and marigolds, paired with the sleek look of charcoal grey. Yet, it played a distinct role for each location…vintage and rustic for the evening ceremony, and sophisticated elegance for the reception. The gardens were exquisite for the ceremony, with wrought iron archways of ivy, white pumpkins and submerged orchids. Chrome lanterns, birch branches and candlelight worked beautifully on their tabletops, with modern platinum pintuck linens, and bold room uplighting for the reception.

Jamie and Brian are an incredibly fun and boisterous couple…not afraid to show you their silly and sentimental sides. Having a photobooth was a must for Jamie and Brian…a chance for their guests (and themselves!) to let loose and have a keepsake of the fun their guests had that day. It was very important to have special touches incorporated that were truly meaningful to them as a couple. The couple’s dog, Brody, was a large part of their life, and they lost him to cancer shortly before the wedding. Jamie found a way to bring Brody into the day with a gift of custom cufflinks bearing his picture for the groom. From the sparklers for the guests to light as the couple became husband and wife, and the personal songs for her ceremony processional, to the super sparkly shoes for the bride to strut in as she walked down the aisle…every detail was executed so their guests could walk away saying “This wedding was definitely Jamie and Brian’s!”

White Orchid At Oasis Wedding by Jamie Lee Photography

Happy Friday! Our next real wedding comes to us from Florida! This quintessential southern wedding by Jamie Lee Photography is the perfect example of expressing yourself through your wedding. This bride and groom love cowboy boots and jeans and we love how they incorporated them into their big day! Enjoy!

From the beautiful bride, Bailey…

If you ask any of our friends or family they will tell you our wedding describes us exactly. Very classy but laid back with the cowboy/girl boots shows our southern way of life.

The most memorable part of my wedding day would have to be seeing my husband on the dance floor. He never liked to dance and on our wedding day we was so happy he was on the dance floor all night. That was the most memorable part for me. For my guest it would probably have to be my adorable flower girl tripping and falling on her way down the aisle.

Le Meridien Hotel Wedding by Laura Leigh Photography

Our next real wedding takes place at the Le Meridien Hotel in Philadelphia. Submitted by Laura Leigh Photography, this modern, city wedding perfectly captures this couple’s love for Philadelphia and each other. We love the modern touches and the glamourous styling. Enjoy!

From the talented photographer, Laura…

Evalis & David were married July 2011 at the Le Meridien Hotel in Philadelphia, PA. The couple fell in love with the Le Meridien for the Hotel’s modern look and unique style- from the gorgeous ceremony room to the offbeat wall decor and modern rooms. Although the couple does not live in Philadelphia, they have fallen in love with the city over the years. They wanted to capture Philly in their photos- so we visited City Hall, Rittenhouse Square and Love Park for their photos prior to their ceremony. The hotel also served as a great backdrop to capture the modern but stylish feel they wanted to achieve with their wedding.

A DIY Massachusetts Wedding by No Eye Has Seen Photography

We love DIY weddings and this is one is no exception! Everything from the perfectly accessorized beautiful bride and the clever pops of yellow and green to the absolutely adorable ring bearer and flower girl. Captured by No Eye Has Seen Photography, you will love this DIY Massachusetts wedding.

From the photographer, Alicia,

Brian and Katherine’s wedding was everything a wedding should be. With it’s vibrant colors and DIY details that perfectly reflected the couples personality, this wedding was one for the books. Katherine and Brian are both vibrant and cheerful people, so it was absolutely fitting that the colors they chose matched their incredibly fun personalities. With just 50 of their closest friends and family around them, they promised forever to each other under the warmth of the Massachusettes costal sunshine. Everyone they loved was in attendance except their one child…Reggie the hedgehog. And because Reggie was unable to attend the wedding, they made sure to pay tribute to him throughout the day with the ring bearers “pillow”, cake toppers, and hedgehog sugar cookies. All in all, this was was one of the most fun, loving, and colorful weddings I’ve ever been to.

The Franklin Institute Wedding by BG Productions

We are in love with this wedding, not only for its beautiful bouquets and classic style, but also for its different and just plain cool location. Held at The Franklin Institute to reflect their love of science, BG Productions beautifully captured the first look on the rooftop, the ceremony in the planeterium, and the reception in the rotunda around the Benjamin Franklin National Memorial.

From the bride, Lauren:

Our overall theme for the wedding was “classic elegance with a hint of eccentricity”.  We decided having black and white as our colors would provide a classic look, and would really bring out the unique pearl color of my wedding dress.  We incorporated purple in the flower arrangements and groomsmen’s ties in remembrance of my (the bride’s) mom who passed away, as it was her favorite color.

We also wanted to provide our guests with meaningful favors that reflect our values and beliefs. The favors were custom made donation cards that  benefitted WhiteKnot.org, which is an organization that promotes marriage equality.  We are big supporters of human rights and the right for all people to marry.
