Danielle and David live in Berkeley, CA, but decided to have their wedding at the stunning Silverleaf Club in Scottsdale. The wedding was filled with laughs, tears, fun-filled speeches and PIE. Pie is always a good sign of an awesome wedding. And I love how the couple choose a venue that highlighted the beauty of Arizona, where they were both originally from. To say that this wedding is a stunner is an understatement. Read More

Today’s wedding inspiration shoot was inspired by the photographer’s heritage: her love of her grandparents and the art of true Southern entertaining. With a venue that feels like home in the South with it’s big wrap-around porch, the incorporation of heirloom china and gold flatware, and colorful florals that feel like they were freshly cut from the garden, I’m longing for a visit to the South myself. So pour yourself a glass of sweet tea and stay a while. Read More
The Notebook-Inspired Wedding (has it really been 10 years since we fell in love with Ryan Gosling?)
Call me a sucker, a sap, or cheesy, but I freaking love The Notebook. Maybe it’s because I met my sweetheart young. Maybe it’s because I love a great love story. Maybe it’s because Ryan Gosling is so hot and Rachel McAdams is such a doll (and let’s be honest, you know you STILL wish they’d get back together in real life too…don’t lie). It’s probably a combination of all of those things, but I do – I just love this movie. And I can’t believe it’s 10 years old already.
Since I know many of you still love it as much as I do – a good love story is timeless, after all – I thought I’d share 5 steps to having your own wedding inspired by The Notebook.
Step 1: You need a bride in white driving gloves. It’s so Ally.
Step 2: Ringbearers in newsboy caps, obvs.
Step 3: Groom and groomsmen in bowties and suspenders, Noah style.
Step 4: A birdcage veil. Because “if you’re a bird, I’m a bird…”
Step 5: A canoe getaway. Bonus points for rain and a sea of ducks.
*major bonus points for nabbing the actual Ryan Gosling as your groom. And kudos to you.
While I’m sure you can tell I’m mostly kidding, I do think The Notebook can inspire a lovely wedding or engagement session, if you love the movie or maybe your first date was seeing the movie – how cute would that be!?
Happy 10 Year Anniversary to The Notebook – thanks for all of the lovey dovey inspiration and romantic date nights. “It’s still not over…”
I’m giddy over today’s Old Hollywood wedding from Heidi Ryder. Old Hollywood glamour, vintage touches, gold polka dots galore – what’s not to love? And my favorite of all is the fashion and style the bride infused into the day. She designed and made her dress and the bridesmaid dresses herself, and I am more beyond obsessed with her dress. And her gold glitter Miu Miu heels. Just too good…
Katie thought she was out for an evening stroll at a Los Angeles park with Mike, meanwhile he had planned a proposal for her with Sparkles & Vintage. And Martina Micko was there to capture the whole thing, and an engagement session afterwards as well. The whole thing is so romantic and swoon-worthy. Read More
