Bree & Erik   ♥   Puerto Penasco, Mexico

Photographer:   Ily Grantham

 

Not only did Bree and Erik’s destination wedding take place beside a beautiful beach in Mexico (not to mention how stunning Bree looked in her lace wedding dress…that she designed herself – how talented?!) but there’s a wonderfully warmhearted and thoughtful story behind the spot where they decided to tie the knot.

 

Being able to pick a truly unique wedding location can be one of the main reasons that brides and grooms decide to get married abroad. For this darling duo not only did a destination wedding feel right but getting hitched in Mexico enabled all of their close friends who live in Mexico to definitely be able to attend their nuptials.

 

A typical hotel wedding just didn’t fit the bill and so they set about making a brilliant one of a kind idea become a reality. I’ll let Bree the beautiful bride explain the full story behind their heartfelt bohemian ceremony in Mexico…

Sara & Dustin   ♥   Santa Cruz, USA

Photography:   onelove photography

 

Mountain weddings always seem to be so tranquil and idyllic, and Sara and Dustin’s ceremony certainly lived up to this with a sweet and private setting tucked away within the quiet hillside of Boulder Creek in California.

 

Once it was declared that Sara and Dustin had ‘nailed it’ – literally, check out their cool announcement board! – the party really got started!

 

This cool couple put their heart and soul into their DIY day and it really paid off; there are so many steal-worthy ideas! Rustic signs, a milk and cookies station, personalized blackboard glasses for all of the guests, a homemade photobooth, wedding flowers put together from the local farmers market and more.

 

You’ll be so impressed by the festival feeling that this darling duo managed to create for their celebration and the stunning, serene Santa Cruz mountains standing silently in the background simply add to the already magical atmosphere.

Krystle & Michael   ♥   Maui, Hawaii

Photographer:   Karma Hill Photography

 

I’m not sure you could tie the knot anywhere more paradise-like than the sun-bleached sandy shores of Hawaii. Clear blue skies beam overhead whilst leggy palm trees sway in the gentle Pacific Ocean breeze, easing the tropical balminess – Hawaii sure does deliver on the dreamy destination wedding front!

 

Krystle and Michael said “I Do!” with an oceanfront ceremony at Sugar Beach Events of Hawaii, a private oasis on the breathtaking island of Maui. They added a touch of the tropics to their day by wearing traditional Hawaiian lei garlands and with beautiful local flowers for the bridal bouquets and centerpieces, whilst the rich royal blue hues of the wedding party outfits (and Krystle’s gorgeous Manolo Blahnik’s!) reflected the sapphire blue ocean.

 

We’re so pleased that Maui wedding photography team Karma Hill were on hand too to capture the sunshine and smiles of this delightful destination wedding day!

Photographer:   Kane and Social

 

Glamorous, chic, stylish…these three words simply roll off the tongue when it comes to Tarin and Andrew’s sleek Miami hotel wedding.

 

Having chosen one of Miami Beach’s most elegant hotels with the finest address for their destination wedding – the opulent five star St Regis in Bal Harbour – the couple sensibly continued a theme of luxury throughout their day with the groom and groomsmen modelling suave tuxedos whilst Tarin the radiant bride looked every bit the sophisticated belle of the ball in her beautifully beaded and graceful gown.

 

On arrival at the hotel, opulent crystal chandeliers dazzled their guest in the Grand Hall before decadent and inviting table décor drew them into the impressive ballroom for the wedding breakfast. Sheer luxury at its best!

Photographer:  Cean One Studios

 

There’s something undeniably romantic about a mountain wedding. With clear blue skies and crisp fresh air, take your breath away views and untamed scenic beauty they’re the epitome of weddings that are at one with nature. Oh and if there’s even the finest film of snow turning the scene into a winter wonderland then it is sure to be a heart melting wedding day.

 

Today’s mountain wedding has it all and then some. Set on the large and popular ski resort on Mammoth Mountain in Eastern California, Brandi and Jake used this idyllic and icy setting to create a pretty and personalized wedding day that not only had a wonderful woodland backdrop and a reception venue with roaring fires but their day was topped off with aforementioned blanket of snow, taking the romance of their day to a higher level.

So many words could be used to describe Krystina and Gabriel’s Miami wedding day – stunning, elegant, refined, dreamy, magical, sensational – however the one term that rolls all of this wonderfulness into one is ‘glamorous’ and their Coconut Grove nuptials were most certainly glamorous with a capital G!

 

Krystina was a jaw-droppingly beautiful bride, sashaying down the aisle in a wow-factor Vera Wang gown and veil and shimmering Jimmy Choo stiletto sandals, Gabriel radiated with style in his dapper tux and the pair continued to dazzle their guests with a glitzy reception full of destination wedding gorgeousness. Prepare to swoon…
