Outdoor Wedding

Inspiration: Lavender Fields Forever

Utah friends, have you been to the lavender fields at Young Living Farm in Mona? Tiffany of Tiffany Sangster Photography tells us they bloom for only about a month in late June, so they had the tiniest window to dream up this shoot in. As you can see with this beauty of a wedding cake from Cupcakes by Julie, the team let the fields inspire every inch of their purple wedding vignette. This ring from Wilson Diamonds. Talk about a stunner! They chose it for a nod to both contemporary and classic wedding styles. Tiffany says, We were inspired to go a different route from the boho chic that you have seen before, but instead go more of a modern love story. My first thought went straight to Carol Hannah Bridal, all her dresses have a beautiful flow to them and yet still retain that modern style that is up to date with today’s high fashion. The Potted Pansy, with her breathtaking floral arrangements, were perfect for this shoot as well.

Real Weddings: Meet Lauren

Rustic radiance. This Catskills wedding was simplicity done right. The first-look photoshoot in the woods was prelude to the sunshiny outdoor ceremony. Galvanized pails filled with baby's breath lined the aisle, and glistening water provided the perfect altar. The barn-turned-dance-hall was choice for the reception. The pastoral trimmings were all on point. Our Solstice Skirt and Fleur Bustier were a lovely match for this special day. And how about those antlers!

Real Weddings: Meet Marina

Rocky Mountain Majesty. Marina and Brendan were married in a beautifully simple ceremony. They let their location awe, as only the Aspen mountains can. The bride wore one of our favorites, our Birch Dress with our Heritage Veil. This radiant couple, and the surrounding natural beauty, was captured in all its grandeur by Laura Murray Photography

Real Weddings: Meet Minnie

Minnie and Marshall were married on solstice weekend on Orcas Island, WA, Minnie's childhood home. Their wedding was earthy and elegant, inspired by the natural beauty of the island. Their arbor was crafted from driftwood collected off the beach, freshly picked flowers graced the tables, and the couples guests dined on local oysters and fresh, wild-caught salmon. Minnie and Marshall's friends and family rolled up their sleeves and created nearly everything from scratch. The bride's dad planted a field of poppies, just for the occasion! The bride's mother reclaimed a lost love of sewing to create a bodice that the bride wore with our Kensington Skirt. All of the personal touches made this love filled day truly one-of-a-kind.

This Colorado Styled shoot has set our hearts on fire. We are longing for adventure in the great outdoors and unending days to be wild and free.

Brought to life by the wind and the amazing Kristin Sweeting, our dresses couldn't be happier. Buon weekend adventurers!
