Ending off the week with this dreamy desert shoot from Marie Cameron Photography. With a gorgeous calligraphy invitation and a stunning long sleeve lace gown, it’s hard not to fall in love with this romantic session. I love the bright red pop that vintage chair gives against the neutral desert. And that curled updo and rustic flower crown is the perfect complement to the cacti filled backdrop.

Pink and navy are a pretty classic color combination. This intimate Virginia wedding from J&D Photography gives the combo a fresh spin with bright and chic details you will fall in love with. The little bunny place card holders are probably the cutest thing I’ve seen all year. But my favorite detail has to be the ceremony set up. Getting married in a ring of rose petals is just about as romantic as it gets!
My colors were navy and champagne with blush and fuchsia pink accents. My style was a mix of vintage, romantic and a little bit of secret garden. Since it was a very small wedding, I wanted the location to be cozy, warm, and intimate. That’s why Clifton was so perfect! It was like you were immediately at home.
I’m the girliest girl, so I absolutely loved getting pampered and all dolled up. Having my mom help me get dressed and all the girly chatter in my suite just built up the nerves and anticipation in a good way.
At first, the most important thing was finding the perfect outdoor venue that spoke to our love of nature and was a fit for our small wedding. Then, it was making sure we stayed within budget. Next came finding the perfect planner to execute our vision. And of course, all the little details in between.
Hearing the string quartet play Bittersweet Symphony and immediately becoming emotional, my brother told a joke to help me keep it together. Seeing my husband’s face and locking eyes as soon as we saw each other. And sharing the best day ever with family and friends.
I live in the little details and people that know me best will pick up immediately on the “Danyelle touches”. I sourced the vintage flower frogs and made the signage for the memorial table, signature drink and guest book. I bought a reclaimed window from RVA Antiques and made the welcome sign guests saw as they entered the lower garden.
I decorated the favor box, lining the inside with handmade paper from Paper Source. I became a craft store regular, finding little pennant flags and glitter stickers to complete my “spread the love” message.

Pantone’s colors of the year, rose quartz and serenity blue, have never looked better than in this dreamy eclectic wedding inspiration from Aisle Society captured by Chelsea Anderson Photography. Highlighting the gorgeous wedding and bridesmaid dresses from David’s Bridal, this shoot shows that you can have the romantic wedding of your dreams, while still keeping in budget. The convertible bridesmaid dress looks stunning on any shape (even a beautiful mom to be!) I love the idea of a convertible gown because you can get tons of completely different looks to suit all your besties, while keeping it simple and easy with one dress. No worrying over trying to match different dresses or picking one that won’t look good on someone. And that open back lace wedding gown? Talk about swoon-worthy! It is that elegant designer style, without breaking the bank.
The florals are absolutely breath-taking, especially the ceremony set up! I love the hanging planters down the aisle. And how beautiful is that arch? The vintage lace and greenery make the perfect combination!
