    Elegant Santa Barbara Wedding

     

    Elegant Santa Barbara Wedding | C&K photography

    When a photographer you love sends you a wedding you love – well, that’s pretty much the best day for a wedding blogger. And this elegant Santa Barbara wedding from Chris & Kristen Photography definitely made my day. The stunning couple wanted a laid-back yet elegant wedding with Italian touches thrown in to honor the groom’s side of the family. And it reinforces how much I love California weddings.  Read More »

    Preppy Southern Wedding

    Preppy Southern Wedding | Dana Laymon Photography

    Sorry for the lack of posts this week – I’ve been bedridden with a terrible virus that completely wiped me out (stomach virus on top of being pregnant is brutal!) So to make up for it, I’ve got a fabulous real wedding for you today. I love all of the hints of the South in this wedding, but the pineapples most of all – for those of you that don’t know, the pineapple is a traditional expression of “welcome” throughout the South. Pretty perfect for a wedding, don’t you think?  Read More »

    Handmade Ombré Wedding

    Handmade Ombré Wedding | Amy Carroll Photography & Heyday Event Lab on Oh Lovely Day

    Hold on to your balloons, because today’s handmade ombré wedding is legen (wait for it….) DARY. Sparkle + gold – check. Ombré + color – check. Gorgeous handmade details – check. Sweet moments and traditions – double check! You better get your pinning finger warmed up because this one is so full of inspiration, you’re going to want to save every photo. What I really love is that while this bride had a lot of DIY and handmade decor, that doesn’t mean she didn’t hire amazing vendors and have a fantastic planner to help her pull everything together. Just because a bride likes DIY doesn’t mean she wants to DIY everything (I hate when blogs make DIY seem like an all or nothing thing. You can do whatever you want!) This wedding shows you that DIY and handmade weddings + fabulous vendors can work together perfectly. Read More »

    Wizard of Oz Wedding | Red Heels Events and Summer Jean Photography on ohlovelyday.comWhat do you get when you combine inspiration from The Wizard of Oz with a wedding? One of the most creative shoots I’ve featured on Oh Lovely Day, that’s what!

So follow the yellow brick road to today’s Emerald City Shoot from Red Heels Events and Summer Jean Photography.  Read More »
