  • Hollman + Sara

  • Goodness, I love a fabulous beach wedding. Sara and Hollman went the destination route for their outdoor nuptials, and I am digging the light and airy tropical vibe of the day they created. One of things I really enjoy about destination weddings are how intimate they are; it's truly a celebration wi[...]
  • Kailey + Travis

  • If you're having trouble waking up this Monday morning, no worries! Skip the coffee, and get a load of this bright yellow spring wedding. Yellow is just one of those colors that perks you right up and gets a smile on your face. That it's the most prevalent color in today's super charming featured we[...]
  • Jen + Mark

  • Today's bride, Jen, redefines the term "do-it-yourself." She dyed her own shoes, crafted every element of decor, with all the florals created by her aunt, and even spent three months drawing the damask border on the 50-foot aisle runner. The girl has got some mad crafting skills, and the couple's we[...]
  • Weekend Love: Steven + Allie

  • Happy Sunday, everyone. For the second part of our Weekend Love, we have the wedding of Steven and Allie. One of the things I love most about DIY weddings is how involved the couple's family can get. For starters, Allie and Steven were married in the church the bride's grandmother helped build as a [...]
  • Weekend Love: Emile + Derek

  • The couple featured in our the engagement shoot today kept it sweet and simple. They used a chalkboard as their only props, and the result is so full of brightness and love that it made me say to my husband, "Oooooo, honey. We need a BARN! And a WOOD FENCE! And REALLY TALL GRASS to frolic in!" &n[...]
  • Andrew + Sarah

  • Today's bride, Sarah, offered up a piece of great wedding planning advice that I think all the newly engaged should take to heart, "Enjoy it! Start early, and don't rush the decision making process. Make sure it's exactly what you want." So often brides can get caught up in having to do 568 differen[...]
  • Brittany + Derrick

  • Today's featured wedding looks like it was one awesome party! Brittany is a nurse, Derrick is a motorcycle racer, and their personalities busted out in this wedding. All the details are modern, fresh, and funky, but with a fierce classic twist. I especially love the photos of them in the bright aqua[...]
  • Grace + Micah

  • I've made no secret of my adoration of couples who build their wedding sites from the ground up. It takes ingenuity, creativity, and a healthy dose of moxie. They enlisted friends to help with the music and flowers, and family helped set up shop at Hunter Park which is a preserve north of San Diego.[...]
  • Whitney + Justin

  • I'm a sucker for a broad and sweeping Southern wedding, and today's is just the ticket. Whitney and Justin were married at the Eden Gardens State Park, a venue with gorgeous antebellum architecture and stunning scenery. They even found a way to incorporate their four legged friend into their wedding[...]
  • Chandler + Valerie

  • After the bright colors of yesterday's wedding, we're slowing it down a bit with a laid-back beach affair to send us into the holiday tomorrow. Chandler and Valerie were married on Florida's Palm Island, which is accessible only by boat or ferry. Once you're on the island you can only get around [...]
  • Sakura + Nathan

  • For today's wedding, I contemplated just writing "Stripes. That is all." This wedding is just . . . wow. The big, bold, black and white stripes with red accent, the spiky red heels, and the outdoor events with the big tents? I almost can't handle all the wicked DIY creativity.    [...]
