Get ready for some dreamy winter romance with this wedding shoot from Nicole Flores Photography Co. Inspired by The Nutcracker, this shoot is the perfect balance of elegance and whimsy. The elaborately designed cake is the star of the show, with draped theater curtains and a mini playhouse inside!
The inspiration was taken from the play, The Nutcracker. The stylist, Victoria Miller of Decor by the Day, had a winter shoot in mind with a romantic and whimsical feel and bold shades of red, navy, and creme as the main colors. The flowers are bold and rich shades of red. My favorite accent of the designer’s is the fruit (grapes, pears, figs, and cranberries) which added extra texture and pops of color. The silverwear, chargers, and glasses are a beautiful gold color, perfectly complimenting the rest! The cake is very unique, as it is designed to go with the theme and has a playhouse inside of it!

This sweet outdoor California wedding from Susie and Will is filled with darling handmade details! The bride’s mother and aunt did all the florals themselves, with a soft pastel hued color palette of blushes and soft greens. We love the mini terrarium orb favors DIY’d by the bride!
I wanted an all outdoor wedding with beautiful scenery and a romantic feel. I’ve chose baby pink and lavender as my colors as it really paired with all the white roses that bloomed around the venue.
I wanted to have vintage feel to our attires. The groomsmen wore light grey suits with blush bowties that really paired with my bridesmaid dresses.
The most important thing was to have a beautiful venue and a great photographer. Susie & Will really captured every moment and brought our day to life!
One of my favorite moments was coming down in a horse & carriage with my dad sitting next to me, it really felt like a princess moment! And of course saying ‘I Do’ in front of our closest family and friends!
My mother and aunt did all the florals and really captured my vision to have light colored flowers with a hint of green. It paired well with my style and popped out in pictures.
For favors my mother and I decorated clear orb balls with dried roses and greenery inside. I also handmade my own guestbook, candy table setting, photo booth backdrop, and ceremony lanterns.

This vintage styled airplane engagement session from Pattengale Photography is too cute for words! The shoot is a nod to Colt’s proposal, which he did mid-air with an adorable emergency check list. Read the cute story below!
Around Thanksgiving last year, Colt had asked me to join him for a “fly-in holiday dance” at a hangar he connections to. We both dressed up in our holiday attire and bundled up for the early December cold. I met Colt at the local airport, where he rented a Cessna, after he had already completed the pre-flight. Colt was excited to share that he would be filming our flight with some go-pro’s, because he wanted to video tape my first landing (which I was nervous about.) He had secured one go-pro to the wing outside the cabin, and another was mounted on the dash. We took off and Colt gave me control to let me have some experience flying. He took back the control and asked me to grab something from the backseat. As I turned around to find what he wanted, we experienced an engine spurt, which alarmed me. Colt was also seemingly alarmed, which was very concerning, as he is a very experienced pilot. He asked me to begin the emergency checklist to help him get back to the airport safely. As I got through the list, he asked me to read the emergency flight ring engagement procedure, which turned into his proposal. My now husband is quite clever and good at playing pranks. He had simulated an engine issue to startle me into reading the “emergency procedures,” which were actually step by step instructions for his proposal. I of course accepted with delight, realizing that, first of all, I was going to spend the rest of my life with my best friend, that we were not in an emergency situation, that the proposal had been caught on camera, and that he had all of our family filming us from the ground.
