Palm Springs weddings win my heart every time – they never fail to deliver destination wedding perfection!

Add some seriously glamorous wedding décor, glitzy sequinned bridesmaid dresses and a stylish-as-can-be bride and groom to a sophisticated Country Club venue and you have Kendrick and Aron’s jaw-droppingly gorgeous Palm Springs wedding soiree. Sounds amazing right? Well I’ll leave you here to enjoy the serious wedding eye candy that awaits you….

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.

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!

It’s the first day of September (I know, how did that happen?!) which officially heralds the beginning of autumn here in the UK. Right on cue we are enduring a grey, wet and windy day weather-wise, however the holiday and destination wedding season is still in full swing…there’s always a pocket of sunshine to be found somewhere in the world!

 

So to brighten up this breezy day and to take our minds off the fact that winter is on its way, comes today’s beautiful beach wedding in the US Virgin Islands.

 

Christina and Adam left behind cool, foggy San Francisco and jetted off to the Caneel Bay Resort located within 170 lush acres of the Virgin Islands National Park. Spectacular azure waters and bleached white sand created a dreamy beach ceremony setting whilst pretty pops of turquoise and flashes of tropical pink gave a vibrant finish to this darling destination wedding.

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…

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….
