If you’re considering having a theme for your destination wedding day then you couldn’t go far wrong by taking some tips from Danielle and Aaron’s nautical styled New York soiree.

 

Using one strong theme for a wedding can sometimes overshadow the day however this stylish duo perfectly filled their big city shindig with personal touches and brought their love of wanderlust to life without going overboard!

 

Stripes and anchor references styled the suited and booted sailors and maids, table dressings referenced a love of travel and heading out across the high seas and the bride rocked an absolutely darling button front wedding dress – Ahoy New York!

Destination Wedding – Pretty Autumn Day In The Hudson River Valley

Jane & Michael   ♥   Hudson River Valley, New York

Photographer:   OLLI STUDIO

 

There’s been a touch of autumn in the air over the last few days in the UK. Torrential downpours and grey skies have been greeting us most mornings and once the sun finally came out yesterday afternoon there was a cool, fresh autumnal edge to the breeze and the pavements were strewn with yellow leaves where the trees must have mistaken the unseasonable weather for the beginning of fall.

 

Despite it signifying the end of summer, autumn is a lovely season and a gorgeous time of year for a wedding. Deep earthy shades can be teamed with pops of autumn brights – pumpkin orange and golden yellow and rich red leaves – to create a warm and romantic wedding theme.

 

Jane and Micheal jetted off to Upstate New York to create just this kind of cozy atmosphere for their wedding day. Their day was filled with crisp, bright sunlight and their venue didn’t disappoint with autumn-hued treetops and a dewy view over the Hudson River Valley as their backdrop. Cute personalised touches including pumpkins and scarecrows added to their pretty, rustic autumn theme.

 

Fingers crossed that the summer sunshine is going to return to us for a little while longer, but it is quite exciting that the lovely autumn months are just around the corner too…

Destination Wedding – Luxury Lakeside Ceremony, New York

Jess & Rob   ♥   Seneca Lake, New York

Photographer:   Smile Peace Love Photography

 

Today we’re jetting off to the US and the state of New York for a luxury lakeside destination wedding! Waterside weddings are one of my favourites; whether it’s overlooking the ocean, a river, a lake or even a canal, being beside water creates an incredibly calm and at-one-with-nature feeling, and of course it makes an undeniably beautiful backdrop.

 

Jess and Rob tied the knot beside the harbour of the elegant Watkins Glen Harbour Hotel, overlooking the spectacular Seneca Lake in the heart of Finger Lakes Wine Country (sounds good to me!).

 

Their springtime celebration was prettied with pink details and Jess stunned her groom (and their guests) in a sophisticated capped-sleeve Vera Wang gown, just right for this spring soiree.

 

They pampered their guests with lovely little personal details at the wedding reception including pashminas as favours to keep everyone snug as the sun began to set and the early evening chill arrived….

Cora & Brian   ♥   Hudson River Valley, New York

There are so many beautiful areas in the state of New York. Venture beyond the dazzling lights of Manhattan and be charmed by the countryside and coastal regions that are only a stones throw away.

 

Cora and Brian LOVE the Hudson River Valley region, north of New York City, with its undeniable charisma and historical beauty and so it seemed like the perfect place for them to say ‘I Do,’ and I think that you’ll agree that they chose one of the most picturesque venues for their serene outdoor ceremony!

 

The enchanting Boscobel House and Gardens overlooks the Hudson River and is considered to be one of the finest examples of Federal-style architecture in New York. Doesn’t the majestic yellow house deliver everything that you could imagine a dream American wedding to be and more?

 

Beyond the regality of the ceremony venue, this darling duo ensured that their big day was a romantic-yet-relaxed affair. There’s infectious smiles and laughter to be seen on everyone’s faces and their wonderfully rustic reception ended with dance floor shenanigans and fun with the photo booth props!

 

If you think that New York could be the wedding destination for you, look beyond the bright lights of the big city, as there are so many fairytale venues to choose from just around the corner…

There might be sunshiny skies here in the UK today but the blog is boasting all shades of autumn… 

 

This real life bride and groom (Shannon and Al) were hoping to create a stylised ‘day after’ photo shoot and so together with a talented team of vendors they set about achieving this wonderfully bohemian woodland wedding inspiration.

 

The crisp days of early fall delivered an atmospheric light for this romantic rural shoot set within a family owned vineyard at Baiting Hollow, New York.
