With it’s simple florals and DIY details, it is easy to fall in love with this organic mountainside wedding from 135milimetros! The bride and groom handmade most of the details, including all the paper goods and flowers. And even more special, the bride wore her mother’s gown reimagined as her own! Love!

We are simple people, and we wanted to have a wedding just like us. So, we had a simple decoration with flowers, and had the theme of Portuguese writers (because we love to read!). Also, we were very lucky of our choice in the location. Casa do Valxisto is simply amazing, and was beyond our expectations.

I always had a dream of marrying in my mother’s wedding dress. So I took it, and made it a little modern and gave it my style.

We were very selective with the guests, so all the people there were truly important to us. With this, we felt so very happy and grateful for seeing everyone enjoying the day, the venue, the great wine and food and, of course, having fun. The venue was very cozy and it was perfect for our winter wedding day.

I was very methodic with the choice of all the flowers. I wanted simple but elegant flowers for that combined with the venue. It was made by me and my mother in law, just the way I dreamed it. For our favors we cooked some orange crush. For the lids of the jars we used linen fabric from the groom’s family.

We are living in a dream with this utterly stunning engagement session from Katherine Rose Photography inspired by The Notebook! From the rowboat on the foggy lake to the cute picnic with ducks, this session is perfectly romantic!

Nicholas Spark’s “The Notebook” is one of the most romantic stories ever written, and was the perfect theme for our sunrise engagement shoot. We decided to re-create one of our favorite scenes from the story, and began the day with a romantic boat ride on the beautiful Lake Wohlford in Escondido, CA. In order to add more romance to the shoot, we dressed up the vintage rowboat with a luxurious garland and dressed our couple in classic vintage attire. We then sent them out onto the lake to enjoy memorable morning on the lake enjoying a stunning sunrise.

This lush tropical garden makes for the dreamiest backdrop in today’s Florida garden wedding captured by Cat Pennenga Photography. The blush and navy color combination was perfectly classic and so chic!

We both do not like being in the spotlight, so we wanted to highlight a wedding that had a lot of beautiful, natural scenery and then to incorporate a lot of fun! We chose Navy, Blush and Gold as our main colors. We both loved Selby Gardens and the natural beauty it adds.

I tried on so many wedding dresses and when I tried on the Hayley Paige Remmington gown I knew it was the one! My personal style is very girly, and I love wearing patterns (especially floral prints) so the gown embodied that perfectly, while incorporating blush.

I carried by grandmother’s Bible that she carried when she was married.

I really enjoyed our wedding ceremony. We had one ring bearer carry his sign upside down and during the ceremony our flower girl spilt the basket of petals. We also had our best man struggle to get the rings out of his pocket so that added another laugh to the ceremony.

My priority were the flowers of the wedding-to compliment the already beautiful landscaping of the gardens. We also prioritized the food and photography! We splurged on those items and decided to skip any drapping in the reception room since it was all re-done.

We did custom Koozies for wedding favors. I handmade the ringbearer signs that 3 of our 4 ringbears carried and my mother handmade the ringbearer pillow. I also etched our champagne flutes myself to include Mr. and Mrs. and the date of our wedding.
