They say rain on your wedding day is good luck, but waking up to a downpour can be a bit frazzling, especially when September mornings in wine country are known to be warm, not wet! But this bride was unfazed and the backup plan at the Luther Burbank Home and Gardens could not have been lovelier. The clouds began to part and blue skies peaked though just in time for the ceremony, but the lovely redbrick greenhouse was the perfect fit for their 50ish guests. Eileen from Buena Lane Photography captured this intimate greenhouse ceremony in Santa Rosa for Chistian and Rayanna.
We came across this post by photographer Chris Thorton and had to share with you! How amazing that he the took these pictures because his 3 year old son didn’t understand what he did as a wedding photographer, so naturally, why not visually show him with his toys and a fun photo shoot?! Of course mom helped with the shoot by adding the special touches and decorations!
We love the white and grey wedding details in today’s real wedding shot by Magdalene Kourti Photography! From the pops of grey in the invites and the bouquet to a dessert table with custom sweet treats, this bride likes to pay attention to details!
Photographer Becky Schleis form K+B Photography captured moments of love with Aubrey and Matt in a perfect park location in Long Grove, IL. This is what she said about the shoot:
“Aubrey and Matt were such a picturesque couple. They didn’t require much coaching since their love really shines through when they are together. When we first consulted for their engagement session and wedding day, Aubrey told us about their interest in a vintage theme with a mix of a country style. Both of them are from upstate New York and wanted to bring that feel to their engagement session while having the photos taken here in Illinois. We scouted for a location that embodied the charm which the couple was looking for and found Long Grove, IL. It is a small town with an endearing downtown area that had the appeal we were looking for. On the day of the shoot, we arrived at the location early enough to check out their ice cream parlor, grabbed a couple scoops and waited for the couple to arrive. As soon as Aubrey and Matt arrived, we allowed them to walk around and enjoy the area, in hopes that they felt somewhat at home. We were glad that they easily acquainted with the place as we were able to capture natural and sweet moments between the two during the session.”

We love when bride and grooms bring out the fun at their wedding! Photographer Christopher Sztybel from That Werks was able to capture Vanessa and Conrad and they decided to go along with all of his crazy photo ideas (which he loved)! Christopher told us: “It began with their engagement session that required them to order Chinese food all the way to their wedding day at La Triestina in Congers, New York. They set the gold standard of a couple that expresses love effortlessly and you can see that in the photographs. The bridal party and guests gave me everything I needed. The dance moves ranged from choreographed perfection to spontaneous hilarity.”
A unique perspective makes the best casual engagement photos. It might be a thoughtful gaze at a ring on her finger, or the way light and shadow accent a sincere smile. Sometimes it is an interaction, the way two people share a private moment. The skilled photographer finds an artistic expression of the inner feelings; it is the artistry of capturing a mood. To catch a scene that does not recur, involves an element of chance; there is a greater influence from expertise, to get the scene in the camera as it appeared in reality. It is the remarkable ability to capture the essence of the scene in the lens.
When you think of getting married in Washington you might not think of having a beautiful beach wedding, but this wedding will make Washington brides re-think their scenic wedding choice and take it to the beach!

Today we’re sharing this amazing Modern Style Wedding documented by Micah J Photography. Michelle is a nurse and Tom works at a car dealership and also is a guitar player/singer in a band. The wedding was held in Pontiac, Michigan which was great because the city has a beautiful urban backdrop. The ceremony was at First Presbyterian Church built in 1918 and is full of stained glass. After the ceremony, the couple and 16 of their bridal party stopped at a bar named Downtown 51 Grille, where they had cocktails and a few shots. The reception was held in a venue called Crofoot Ballroom which transforms into a bar or concert venue, how fun!
