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…”
