Real Wedding | Love on a farm

I came across this first image on Tumblr (big surprise there) which lead me to (here comes another surprise) Ruffled! Here I’ve posted some of my favorite elements of the wedding, clink on the link below to see the orignal post and more pictures. My favorite part is the barn itself. When you go to Ruffled read the part about the couple’s time capsule!


Katie & Steve | Real Wedding

I found this wedding while stumbling across the Internet one fine evening. Since I was born and raised in the magical Pacific Northwest I fell in love with the natural aspects of this wedding. Think about it, how inexpensive these center pieces are if you can just find them in your neighborhood. This, I like.


Real Wedding: Juliet & Andrew | French Laundry, Napa Valley

I was watching Forbes Luxe 11: Extravagant Meals on the Travel Channel and #2 on the list was a restaurant that my parents visited on their wedding anniversary. The French Laundry is tucked away in Yountville, California, north of San Francisco in Napa Valley. From the late 1880s to the early 1920s The French Laundry went from a saloon, to a brothel (after the prohibition) to a French steam laundry. In 1974 Don Schmitt, the mayor of Yountville and his wife bought the building to be used as a restaurant. Everyone in town had known it as the The French Laundry, so the name stayed the same.

So, that’s just the brief history of the building, visit the website to read more on how it came to be the famous restaurant it is today.

ANYWAY, back to wedding time. After watching the show I was inspired to find images of a wedding that took place at this famous location. And well, here we go:


Bryce & Whitney

From original blogger:

On Bryce & Whitney’s first date, Whitney’s phone rang. And her heart stopped. Her dad had died suddenly. As she made her way through the shock and the grief, Bryce was by her side for every second. They got married off the beaten path, nestled in the orchards of Mt. Hood Organic Farms on a bluebird July day as Mt. Hood provided a stunning Oregon backdrop. Surrounded by friends and family, Whitney made a point to incorporate her Dad into the ceremony in unconventional ways: by wrapping his bow ties around each bouquet, saving her favorite for her own; and by having Bryce wear his socks.

This picture is just the best:


Real wedding | Tracy & Jim

Yes – you are seeing that correctly. She is wearing a purple wedding dress. I love the lace one-shoulder detail and her turquoise ring. But what I really like about this wedding are the little details. Take a gander:

Comment from original blogger: For $150, Tracy designed and printed their invitations and ceremony programs. The paper came from Kelly Paper and the printing was done at 1 Up Graphics. When in doubt, stack the type on your invitations to create a full-length conversation piece that also includes every bit of 411 needed for guests.

The bride and groom created this flowchart to show how each guest is connected to the couple. Clever, right?


Heather & Alex

Found this on Martha Stewart Weddings and just fell in love with colors, photography and location. Aka everything. The first picture is my favvy.

Blurb from original post:

On June 5, 2011, the sun was shining as 150 guests gathered in the blossom-filled yard of the couple’s home to watch Heather and Alex exchange vows. Then it was off to one of the couple’s favorite restaurants, Campanile, via double-decker bus, for a family-style Tuscan feast, music, and dancing.

They got married underneath an orange tree. Oh mah gwad. Gorgeous wedding all around:

Andrea & Matt

From one of the popular wedding photographers in Seattle, I had saved this page from Jenny GG photography for a while. What I like about this wedding is that the couple made every table at their reception a different city. Although I don’t know the story, I’m assuming they traveled to those cities together. I want to do the same at my future wedding
