Kicking the celebration off with a crawfish boil, their best friends by their side.
The bustle of the city swirling through the streets, pops of color on every corner.
Flowers and vines swaying in the humid air as they hung from the iconic balconies above.
She wore a fancy white pantsuit and bright, magenta heels.
He pulled on matching magenta socks and tied up his bright mint laces before heading out into the city.
Boarding the street car to meet his bride.
They wed in a bright, open courtyard with brick and greens all around.
Their best friends filled the mint chairs to witness their vows.
Twinkle lights swaying overhead.
Across the black & white checkered floors, she made her way down the aisle.
Together on a bohemian rug, sharing their promises with one another.
Then, parading through those eccentric New Orleans streets,
dancing their hearts out under their lacy parasols to celebrate this big, beautiful love.
Jazz echoing through the air. Onlookers joining in and cheering them on.
They ended their day rocking out at concerts of their favorite musicians.
Unique, fun, bold, intimate, and eccentric.
This is the story of Amanda + Jon & their colorful New Orleans wedding at the Catahoula Hotel.

Tropical urban rooftop wedding at fremont foundry seattle

 

This is the story of Jessica + Seth and their modern, minimalist rooftop wedding at Fremont Foundry in Seattle. Their day was filled with bright whites, modern design, and it screamed summer in every way. Blue skies and the warm sunshine filled the air. Giant smiles and fits of laughter all throughout day. They got ready in a bright, modern Seattle home that was surrounded by beautiful, overgrown, Pacific Northwest greens.
 
An urban wedding in the heart of the city. They got married on the rooftop with the moon hanging above as their witness. After saying yes under a flower covered copper chuppah, they popped some bubbly for a first cheers as husband and wife. Just before sunset, they wandered around the city hand in hand. High fives and more laughter under the Aurora Bridge. Happening upon two cuddly puppies to snuggle just before watching the sun set on Lake Union.
 
A falafal food truck and doughnuts instead of cake. Tropical flowers and greens sprinkled throughout the space. Collected vintage postcards for their guestbook, popcorn favors, and a colorful photo booth complete with silly animal masks, their celebration was filled with so much happy and love.

This is the story of Tris + Remi and their vegan, woodland fairy themed wedding.
The tables set with medieval chalices and collected vintage cutlery, candles flickering wildly.
Homemade jam upon every plate. Hand drawn table settings and a wedding seal illustrated by the bride.
Their day inspired by Midsummer nights dream, the secret garden, her favorite fairytale, and art nouveau works.
They aimed for their day to feel cozy + elegant just like their home and life.
One of her best friends sewing last minute details, as all of the girls prepare in a room filled with family heirlooms.
Their first look, on the path between his childhood home and his best friend’s home down the street.
The same path he has taken countless times as a child.
Now, where he embraces his bride in her flowy, vegan gown and her antique German crown.
They exchanged their vows in the backyard of the home he grew up in, overlooking the Napa River.
Boats sailing by, joining the celebration by tooting their horn.
Afterward, everyone gathered in the living room for a great vegan feast.
Tears, cheers, and cakes adorned with edible butterflies.
Romantic, eclectic, whimsical, otherworldly.
And they danced the night away under twinkling lights and then drove away in their vegan love mobile.
