Colorful Heritage-Inspired Wedding Fiesta

Inspired by family heritage, a love of nature, and simplicity, Jessica and Salvatore envisioned their perfect intimate wedding surrounded by vibrant color and meaningful details. Mix the bride's Mexican heritage with the historic significance of Seven Springs in Virginia, and you have a beautiful tribute to the past and present. From the DIY sugar skull hand fans to the personalized maracas for guests to shake to get the couple to kiss to the Mexican De La Rosa candies that represented Jessica's grandmother's maiden name, we are completely smitten with the heart behind their special day.

Captured by Awesomesauce Photography, Jessica and Salvatore wove Roman Catholic traditions into their ceremony like the lazo to symbolize the couple's unity and modern trends into their reception like the cutest mini silver piñatas ever that served as their unique guest book alternative. In lieu of a cake, they shared sweet red strawberries as their guests laughed and shared a meal and memories underneath bistro lights and the stars. It goes without saying that this fiesta was one for the books for these lovebirds!

Earth Day Inspired Garden Wedding

Each year, Earth Day is not only a celebration of the world in which we live, but a reminder to take care of our surrounding environment to make it last for generations to come. Lyndsay and Cory wanted to give a nod to nature with a special day of their own as they planned a garden wedding at the Founders Inn in Virginia Beach with the help of Soirees by Lauren. Amidst mossy centerpieces, gorgeous rose bouquets, a unity tree, and a wood slab guest book, these two lovebirds paid homage to Mother Nature while committing to their future together.

Captured by Amanda Manupella Photography, all of Lyndsay and Cory's outdoor reception dreams grew to life through joy-filled moments and sweet pink and white décor. We love a bride with a whimsical flower crown, and Lyndsay's did not disappoint as it reminded us of the floral beauty surrounding us in nature each day. The green garden backdrop was the perfect location for a wedding filled with love, and we hope it inspires others to consider loving on the environment on their special celebrations!

The Whimsical Glam Wedding to Make All Succulent Lovers Swoon

If you're a fan of all things succulent, then you're going to be completely over the moon for Ashley and Jeffrey's Outer Banks wedding! Envisioning a whimsical, yet glamorous beach celebration, these two brought their a-game when it came to assorted natural coastal decor at the Sanderling Resort. From a custom driftwood cake pedestal to soft sage green bridesmaid dresses to itty bitty cactus cuties in the reception centerpieces, everything was a feast for the eyes and set the tone for a simple elegant wedding for the couple and their loved ones.

One of Ashley's favorite memories included smooching her new husband with sand between their toes and the Atlantic as their witness. With a gathered tulle bridal skirt reminiscent of gentle ocean waves and sunkissed cheeks, it's no wonder the romance of the beach captivated them both! Beautifully captured by Neil GT Photography, sweet moments at the ceremony like a flock of gulls gracing the sky above them and a special banjo ukelele solo one of the groomsmen played for Ashley and Jeffrey at the reception made the entire day a one-of-a-kind destination wedding.
