Christina and Pablo are high school sweethearts, and friends and family from around the world converged onto St Petersburg, Florida for their classic wedding at the St. Pete Museum of Fine Arts. A black and white color palette and black tie wedding party attire added an elegant touch. The museum’s natural beauty needed little in the way of decor, so petite centerpieces from Northside Florist atop shimmering linens added a finishing touch to the expansive room. Bridesmaids selected their favorite black dresses from Azazie, while Christina was radiant in a lace mermaid gown from The White Magnolia Bridal Collection. Loving the love and cheer in the beautiful images from Caroline & Evan Photography!

Classic Blush and Gold National Cathedral Wedding
After Jessica and Zach got engaged, they sweetly joined Jessica’s parents on a trip to DC to celebrate their wedding anniversary. One of their excursions there was to take a walk on the grounds where her parents held their wedding ceremony, the National Cathedral. Naturally, they were so smitten with the gardens and the buildings that once they found out the Gothic-style cathedral was now hosting wedding receptions in addition to ceremonies, the New Yorkers jumped on the chance to get married there. Jessica wanted an “elegant and ethereal” day so with the help of Caroline Dutton EventsÂ andÂ Kate & Lilly Floral Design, they drew inspiration from the Bishop’s Garden on the grounds. With Audra Wrisley capturing all the pretty pale pink roses, peonies, greenery, and everything in between, the duo said their I do’s and partied the night away in one of the most amazing venues we’ve seen.

Dreamy Brooklyn Wedding with Flowing Flowers and Hints of Citrus
Sarah and Scott originally had a large celebration planned, but like many other brides, COVID changed that. In a cautious manner they decided to move forward with their wedding with just their 12 closest family and friends. Despite the small guest count, the design aspect was large. Their outdoor ceremony took place surrounded by banyan trees under the most stunning Chuppah. Reception was followed with the most divine tent with flowing florals and hints of citrus.
Perfectly Pink Fairy-Tale Wedding in Romania
Sarah & Benjamin wanted guests to feel like they were entering a magical world when they arrived at their wedding and the day was full of awe-inspiring details which made that vision a reality. From getting married at the castle-like Wonderland Cluj Resort, to the horse-drawn carriage fit for royalty, to the show-stopping, jaw-droppingly lush, floor-to-ceiling florals by Elena Bodea – Las Floristas that filled both the ceremony and reception, guests were transported into a fairy tale for the day. Add to that that these two look like they walked out of a magazine themselves, and this may be one of the most dreamy weddings ever! The gallery is full of more incredible photos by Ioana Porav Photography, from the stunning rose petal seals on the stationery by Invogue Art, to Sarah’s romantic Milla Nova wedding gown (a nod to her Hispanic roots), to even more photos of their unbelievable florals, and trust us, you absolutely want to see them all!
Timeless Conservatory Wedding with Neutral Colors
When you find out that Christine and Michael’s guest list consisted of family from 19 different states, you’ll wonder like us how they accommodated every single one of them. They happened upon Morristown, New Jersey because of its proximity to major airports and train stations: a huge plus. What they really lucked out on was The Madison Hotel-Conservatory. Cassi Claire Photography captured the breathtaking venue and its high glass walls, stark white interior with a slight industrial vibe, and the abundance of flowers already perched inside. The couple wanted to keep their colors simple, so they opted for a classic color palette so as not to detract from the conservatory itself. Apple Blossom Flower Shop created pieces with white flowers front and center and heaps of greenery strewn throughout, from the bouquets to the centerpieces. Check out local conservatories for their wedding availability; they are usually decked out in impressive flora and fauna already and are such a unique option for wedding venues.
Elegant California Wine Country Wedding
Gina and Joe’s story begins like so many others in this generation: via a dating app and an awkward first date. Despite the fact Joe was not a Francophile and “avoided all of the French words” at the French restaurant they ate at, the pair met up again and the rest was history. Before they knew it, they were planning a wedding in Temecula’s wine country with Ashley Bee Photography documenting their day. Purple was common favorite color between the two of them, yet they wanted to break up the hues with various shades. Mauve, gold, and the deep brown wood interior at Wiens Family Cellar created a classic and rustic feel. Gina and Joe are fond of the outdoors, yet due to the weather and the season, they opted to stay warm and cozy inside. Despite this, they wanted to extract those aspects of the outdoors they love and add them into their indoor venue. Long, wooden tables mostly exposed with Sweet Flowers’ wildflower-esque creations gave this nature-loving couple exactly the motif they wanted, and it’s a treat for us all too!
Traditional Burgundy and Navy Fall Wedding
Fall evokes the dreamiest of color palettes and also some of the most innovative pairings, we think. Brittany and Adam married near the tail-end of the fall season where society’s color palette has started gravitating away from oranges and bright reds into deeper tones. Darker reds and moodier colors like their choice of burgundy and navy blue are spot on for this time of year. We love how Elle and Jaye Events transformed JW Marriott Las Vegas into a romantic, fall wonderland with burgundy, gold, and navy blue woven together. With Susie and Will and all of the vendors strutting their best stuff for Brittany and Adam’s wedding, the result was exceptionally beautiful.
Timeless DC Wedding with Shades of Green
Almost instantly, a wedding in Washington, DC has visions of ultimate grandeur. Jen and Nick wed in the early spring at the Four Seasons and they left no stone unturned when it came to the ins and outs of their wedding design. Jen’s favorite blooms are the ever-stunning and lush magnolias and with that color inspiration as their jumping point, they coveted a white/ivory and green wedding with gold accents. Florist Amy from Amy Lauren Floral Designs expressed and continued the color palette by using sumptuous white peonies and white roses along with the glossy magnolia leaves. This wedding has too many impeccable elements to it, both in design and in personality. We’re just glad that Kristen Gardner captured all the splendor in full!
Classic Museum Wedding in DC
We love this absolutely classic fÃ©te hailing from an illustrious museum in our nation’s capital today. This Washington DC wedding was photographed by one of our favorites, Lisa Blume, and it is elegant and so special and timeless. According to Kelly, she couldn’t take her mind off of the National Museum of Women in the Arts’s design and sweetly, how she could picture traipsing down the staircase to meet her dear dad at the bottom to walk her down the aisle to her beau Jamie (tears!). Speaking of tears, we had to mention this touching detail. Kelly needed to have her grandmothers there in some way, so to commemorate these wonderful women in her life, she shipped in two paintings from North Carolina of them and had her grandmother’s tea cup in her bridal suite. Endearingly, the teacup was a gift her grandmother gave to her sister for her wedding.
Wisconsin Winter Wedding
Ashley and Tate are head-over-heels in love, their laughter endless, and their classic winter wedding in the Northwoods of Wisconsin is overflowing with love and joy! The couple both wanted a traditional wedding, with a sophisticated style and simple color palette. They chose Wausau’s Rothschild Pavilion to play host, and selected a color palette of black, white, and gold, with a mix of winter blooms for bouquets and fresh greenery for the reception, featuring a dramatic king’s table and swaths of white draping from the pavilion’s ceiling. Ashley donned her grandmother’s vintage gown for their ceremony and changed into a custom silk gown by Monirose Bespoke Bridal for the reception. Classic black tuxedos and black bridesmaids’ dresses of the maids’ choosing completed the elegant winter look. Wisconsin winter is magical, and we adore the images by Natashia Nicole Photography!
Classic Garden Wedding at Nasher Sculpture Center
Jung and Richard’s clean and refined style shined through in every facet of their Dallas wedding at Nasher Sculpture Center. Their wedding was a mix of modern and organic elements with a timeless color palette of black, ivory, and gold. Keestone Events created an ambiance that complemented the manicured garden beautifully! Fluffy peonies, hydrangea and garden rose arrangements laced with greenery designed by Lizzie Bee’s Flower Shoppe were set atop sleek gold pillars, and gold accents were incorporated in details from the stationery to the chargers, and even the cake from Sugar Bee Sweets Bakery. Jung’s sleek gown from Theia Couture was the perfect fit. Absolutely in love with the gorgeous images captured on film by Allen Tsai Photography!
Chicago Rooftop Wedding
The sweeping views ofÂ Public Chicago‘s Ava Terrace set the stage for Erica and Troy’s gorgeous Windy City soiree! The couple set out to create a warm and welcoming affair for their nearest and dearest, and were treated to a picture-perfect Chicago day for their October nuptials.Â Estera EventsÂ designed a ceremony and reception with an urban, modern touch. Erica and Troy said their vows in a circle of prairie grass and ferns, after which guests moved downstairs to the Library Bar to sip cocktails before being seated for a full five-course candlelit dinner.Â Vale of EnnaÂ worked with Erica and Troy to bring their modern romance theme to life with elegant florals overflowing with foliage.Â For the intimate reception, organic and lush arrangements of ferns, taper candles, and rosesÂ graced a large king’s table.Â A wedding planner herself, Erica knew that their day would go by in the blink of an eye, and made sure to take several moments throughout the evening to truly take in all of the joy. We know they will cherish all of the gorgeous images fromÂ Julia Franzosa Photography!
Glamorous Beverly Hills Wedding
TheÂ Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly HillsÂ was the perfect venue for Julie and Jonathan’s dream wedding! With the help of their wedding planner, Catherine ofÂ CCL Weddings, the couple designed a private outdoor ceremony (featuring the couple’s adorable pup, Nala) and elegant indoor receptionÂ withÂ lush and romantic florals byÂ Heavenly Blooms. Luxury and personality came together perfectly, withÂ champagne escort cards that doubled as favors and a cocktail hour snack of beef jerky, the groom’s favorite! We are obsessed with every fun detail in the beautiful images fromÂ Closer to Love Photography!
Brooklyn Warehouse Wedding
There simply isn’t one single thing we don’t adore about Jen and Jesse’s modern Brooklyn wedding. Rather than a formal dinner, the couple chose to enjoy a progressive cocktail party with their guests, a perfect mix of formality and casualness. Liberty WarehouseÂ set the perfect scene with its industrial aesthetic. The organic greeneryÂ fromÂ Violet and VerdeÂ highlighted the brick, wood, and metal throughout the venue. As if their locale couldn’t get more breathtaking, Jen’s father created a wooden altar from scratch that, paired withÂ Violet and Verde‘s floral, made an exquisite and personal ceremony backdrop. Jen is a vision in herÂ Blush by Hayley PaigeÂ dressÂ from The White GownÂ andÂ theÂ bridesmaids’ dresses add just the right pop of color.Â Even their choice of wedding date is perfectionâ€”they were married on Loving Day, the anniversary of the overturning of the criminalization of interracial marriage in the US. We know that you’ll join with us in falling head over heels for every sweet moment as captured byÂ Kat Harris Photography!
Elegant Chicago Wedding at the Drake Hotel
Jessica and Ben’s wedding is quintessentially Chicago. A ceremony at Rush Street’s St. James Chapel gave way to the reception at the Windy City’s iconic Drake Hotel. The Drake’s stunning ballroom doesn’t need much dressing up to be gorgeous, and we love how the couple enhanced the beauty of the room with a color palette of ivory, gold, and a touch of spring green. Florist Anthony Gowder created a mix of low and high arrangements with lush peonies, ranunculus, roses, hydrangea, vibernum, lilies, and blooming branches of spirea. The finishing touch? A classic white wedding cake with gold leaf from Amy Beck Cake Design with a hidden surpriseâ€”confetti cake inside! Jessica’s inspiration was simple, timeless elegance, and we couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Enjoy all of the lovely images from the equally-lovely Emilia Jane Photography!
Chic + Glam Art Museum Wedding
Berkley and Ken’s wedding is take-your-breath-away (and then hyperventilate-a-little-bit) stunning. Every detail of their big day was incredible, unusual and oh-so-unique! Their venue, the Phoenix Art Museum in Phoenix, Arizona, is the perfect blend of chic and modern. We adore the bedazzled bridesmaids dresses in hues of silver and black, as well as Berkley’s brooch-accented all-white bouquet. But we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the escort card holderâ€”displayed on a liveÂ model (no, really!). We can’t choose our favorite thing about this wedding, so take a look at these spectacular photos byÂ Jerry Yoon Photographers and decide for yourself!
Modern + Elegant California Wedding
Guests at Tiffany and Jonathan’s Montecito Country Club wedding were first treated to a dramatic floral installation by Modern Day Designâ€”inspired by an art exhibit the bride saw at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New Yorkâ€”and champagne before taking their seats. Tiffany stunned in a beaded Elie Saab gownÂ as she walked down the aisle, carrying a white peony bouquet, hand-in-hand with Jonathan. After a “somber, ceremonial, romantic” vow exchange, says the bride, everyone switched to party mode, enjoying dancing, cocktails, and cake from Montecito Confections Bakery. From beginning to (late-night) end, Lacie Hansen Photography did a beautiful job of capturing every detail!
Indoor Elegant and Chic Garden Wedding At The Alfond Inn in Florida
With any outdoor wedding ceremony in Florida you have to have a rain plan, which was the case for Taylor and Jacob’s Alfond Inn wedding. What was meant to be a garden style ceremony on the lawn, was moved into the atrium due to weather. But, that didn’t stop the garden vibes.

Elegant and Classic Florida Wedding at the Vinoy
The historical Vinoy in St Petersburg is a throwback to old Florida, and a dreamy setting for a classic wedding! Michelle and Colton chose to hold their ceremony in the lush tea garden, its fountain dripping in garlands from Marigold Flower Co, and then treated their guests to a gorgeous reception in the ballroom, where the blush and gold palette beautifully balanced the architecture. From the letterpress invitations by Olivia Grace Paperie to the images captured on film by The Ganeys, every detail is timeless and chic!
Classic Wedding at the Vinoy St Petersburg
Meghan says “I was never the girl that had dreams of my wedding and had everything planned out! But I did come to the realization, very quickly, that I wanted it to be simple, elegant and FULL of candlelight.” With this simple but classic ambiance in mind, Meghan and Josh enlisted NK Productions Wedding Planning to bring their vision to life. The couple fell in love with the ornate details of The Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club. The resort reflects the grandeur of a golden age, and NK Productions and Victoria Blooms accentuated the venue’s charm with florals of ivory and white set in glittering gold vessels, loads of candlelight, and a spectacular ivy ceremony backdrop that was the perfect setting for the couple’s outdoor ceremony. Binaryflips Photography captured the simple, modern elegance to perfection and we know you’ll be as smitten as we are!
Soft + Romantic Florida Wedding
Caroline and Brandon’s St. Petersburg wedding is equal parts soft and romantic, and elegant touches abound! The couple, who opted to eschew a first look, caught their first glimpse of each other as Caroline walked down the aisle of the gorgeousÂ St. Mary our Lady of Grace Catholic ChurchÂ in a sophisticated customÂ Augusta JonesÂ gown. During theÂ full Catholic mass, the couple both used their baptismal candles to light the same unity candle that Brandon’s parents lit on their wedding day. In the months leading up to the wedding, Caroline and Brandon had taken dance classes, and their choreographed first dance was a hit at the reception! Along with their guests, many of whom traveled to Florida for the big day, the couple danced all night! The ballroom ofÂ The Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf ClubÂ was transformed with lush arrangements byÂ Botanica International Design StudioÂ featuring peonies, roses, greenery, and a sea of candlelight. We are smitten with every beautiful image fromÂ Kristen Weaver Photography!
Glamorous Florida Ballroom Wedding
Sheena and Nicholas’ South Florida wedding is all about elegance and glamour! Their January wedding was held atÂ The Vinoy RenaissanceÂ in St. Petersburg, and the whimsical pink resort helped to inspired the decor’s palette of champagne, pink, and gold. Subtle champagne Bill LevkoffÂ bridesmaids dresses were a perfect match for Sheena’s mermaidÂ Tara KeelyÂ gown, and we’re loving the dramatic bows on her adorableÂ Enzo Angiolini heels.Â Stonehouse EventsÂ worked with the coupleÂ to craft their day, which was filled with personal details, including printing Sheena’s something old, new, borrowed, and blue in the ceremony programs. Redman SteeleÂ createdÂ cascading centerpieces of hydrangea, roses, and orchids. In lieu of favors, the couple donated to The Christopher Reeve Foundation in honor of Sheena’s father, who was paralyzed in a car accident and passed away in the year before the wedding. We are simply in love with each image fromÂ Justin DeMutiis Photography!
