Ocean views & chic surroundings, what more could a gal want in a dreamy spot to say 'I Do'! Finding one of their mutual loves in the ocean, Alexis Hunt & Hunter Rowe knew that they wanted the majestic beauty of coastline as their backdrop yet a location that was chic & sophisticated. The Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort turned out to be just such a perfect location, offering up a gorgeous grassy special space just large enough to host an intimate wedding along the coastline. Alexis was wonderfully stunning in a ruched gown while donning the most full & gorgeous elbow length veil. The ladies wore bright & fun short dresses from J.Crew in periwinkle with nude pumps while the boys were all sharp in tuxes and sunglasses of course! Alexis & Hunter are the perfect picture, beautiful & classic with all the right touches!
Charleston South Carolina weddings seem to gravitate here, finding a home on Storyboard and I could not be more thrilled. The south has such a terrific way of a life, a sophistication that can not be denied and the best part of the Charleston weddings that head my way, each is a new take on a wedding style. Tierney Simpson & Joe Jutzi's Gibbes Museum of Art wedding was al fresco in the surrounding gardens where light strands punctuated the soon to be starry night sky. Quirky elements where used to bring some whimsy in the from of two life sized topiaries made to look like their dogs, a surprise gift for Tierney, as well as 2 gorgeous old doors that served as the perfect backdrop for the ceremony! A playful color palette of peach, light blue, ivory & mint gave the surrounding gardens a soft pop of color, with mint having a deeper meaning for Tierney being from Kentucky. While the day has a touch of eclectic fun to it, the undeniable glam & sophistication that is the south is ever present!

Pretty in Pink, Gilded Gold, Lace, Lace & More Lace! The lake side wedding of Rachel & Phillip Jones was straight out of a romantic vintage dream with so many terrific little touches working in harmony to bring the day to life. Apothecary bottles, pearls, tea cups, and gold watches are just a few of the elements that helped shape the day. Tables were set in a 5 layer place setting of gorgeous gilded china complete with tea cups as all proper southern settings should! What romantic dream world would be complete without pink as the main color in the palette & flowers upon flowers surrounding everything! Rachel was a vision right out of the art deco era in her gorgeous floor length lace gown, pinned curls & jeweled hair piece, Gatsby Romance! It may sound like a funny thing, but perhaps my favorite part to it all are the wonderfully curmudgeon flower girls who are simply everything in their not feeling it faces especially in the portraits, adorable!! For those that love wonderfully girly & filled of romance, your going to swoon all over this one!

If you're a sucker like me for cute kids at weddings, be warned, today's gorgeous California wedding has them in spades! Tracey Go & John Pagulayan's wedding was the perfect marriage of a classic traditional wedding with touches of culture & modern fashion. The ladies donned gorgeous pale floral print dresses in blush with thistle flower & gold ball bouquets while the men wore traditional Guayabera shirts & slacks, even fedoras for that perfect feel. As I mentioned the kids were a plenty, the girls dressed in adorable petite rosette dresses while the boys were carbon copies of their adult counterparts in white rolled up button down shirts, slacks & fedoras to match! Tracey & John opted for a traditional wedding at the opulent Church of St. Peter & Paul, after which they celebrated at Erhart's By The Sea Fort Mac Arthur in a room filled with tall centerpieces topped by generous blooms while mini mirrors rained down from the top. The overall effect to the day is a gorgeous light bright & joyous fete that wonderfully blends two styles, both fresh & full of life!
