jesse & benji’s country western wedding

jesse & benji's country western wedding

When Jesse and Benji were planning their fall wedding, they wanted a casual vibe. The venue, the Barn on Belmont, lends itself to rustic nuptials, but the couple went for a country western theme as a twist. Not only were there plenty of cowboy hats and boots, there were plenty of other lovely rustic details. And I plan to hide my solo cups in a cowboy boot next time I throw a party! Enjoy!

Laurie and Trevor had the most adorable fall wedding at a barn setting in Colorado. Their wedding was full of fun, rustic details. If you love sunflowers like I do, you’ll love Laurie’s bouquet. And who can resist an ice cream cart at the reception! Enjoy!

cancun-themed bridal shower

I love this bridal shower! The wedding itself was a destination affair in Cancun, so the maid of honor planned a Cancun-themed shower to celebrate. There are lots of fun DIY details – I love that spray painted pineapple! – plus it’s over brunch and I just adore brunch. Enjoy!

angela & etienne’s intimate autumn wedding

angela & etienne's intimate autumn wedding

I love fall – it’s my absolute favorite season. And one of the great parts of the fall is getting to feature lovely fall weddings, like this one. Most people probably think rustic chic when it comes to fall weddings, but this one is stunning and there’s not a single pumpkin in sight (not that there’s anything wrong with pumpkins!). Instead, the bride and groom chose a warm color palette and beautiful details. I also love the use of candles in the ceremony space, all of the orchids, and the bride’s nontraditional color choice for her custom-made gown! Enjoy!

lisa & steve’s california vacation home wedding

lisa & steve's california vacation home wedding

Lisa and Steve rented a vacation home in Rancho Mirage to host their intimate wedding ceremony and reception. It didn’t feel right to title this post “backyard wedding” because how many of us have backyards that stunning? When I first looked through these photos I assumed the venue was a swanky hotel! Even better, Lisa and Steve may be a bit older than most of the couples we feature on this blog, but they had a beautiful wedding and Lisa looked absolutely stunning in her wedding gown! Enjoy these photos!

circus birthday party

circus birthday party

This circus-themed birthday party for two five year olds is absolutely adorable – and as a new mom myself, I think I’m going to have to up my game when it comes to theme parties! The two mothers handled all of the details and decor themselves. Plus the location – a family ranch in Nevada – is stunning. Check out that sky! Enjoy!

allison & steven's winter dinner party wedding

When Allison and Steven tied the knot they decided to forgo the large reception and instead host a small, intimate dinner party at a bed and breakfast, where Steven prepared all the food himself. The wedding was made more romantic by the late season snow storm, making the affair even more cozy. Enjoy!
