** Real Wedding ** An elegant green and gold destination wedding

It was the radiant colour of the bridesmaid’s dresses that drew me into this wedding. Emerald was the pantone colour of the year for 2013. My sister-in-law was bridesmaid at a wedding that rocked green as the colour theme (and boy did they rock it well, it was a beautiful fresh Spring wedding), but I have been slightly disappointed that very few emerald weddings have dropped into my inbox.

Kaleolani and Jose  certainly demonstrate that this is a colour that transcends last year’s trends. It works well for Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter. It is flattering, eye-catching and a little bit different.

That isn’t all that today’s wedding has to offer you. There is a beautiful guest book alternative, a signed ornament for the tree, beach portrait shops and bridesmaids that so clearly know how to party at a wedding…

Here is BTW Photography to tell us more about the big day:

“This wedding is one for the memory books. Simple, elegant, and earthy, Kaleolani and Jose’s wedding was beautiful in every sense, but particularly in an emotional sense. Surrounded by family and friends, the day was heavily focused on their love and commitment.

“Kaleo and Jose have a beautiful story of support and sacrifice. Jose is a bomb technician in the Army and spent a significant time in Afghanistan. Upon his return for a tour, he proposed to Kaleo right there on the tarmac. Ever since then, she has left her home state of Hawaii to be with Jose, as he moves around the country.

“Growing up in Hawaii, nature and the water play an important role in Kaleo’s life. Lake Tahoe gave Kaleo a small taste of home and served as a central meeting spot for Jose’s family from San Diego and others from Michigan. What was unique about this wedding, besides the beautiful backdrop, was the sense of family and excitement. It wasn’t just a wedding, but a reunion that lasted for days. Love was present on so many levels; but non more so than the “I do’s” that Kaleo and Jose shared.”

** Real Wedding ** A Rustic Vineyard Wedding

Rustic styling is still all the rage, but it can take many different manifestations. Rustic chic, traditional rustic, boho rustic… you name it. Everyone puts their own individual spins to their big day, even if they take inspiration from others. After all that is really the essence of wedding blogs – taking ideas from others and making them your own.

Today I have a lovely wedding for you that takes place in a winery – a beautiful barn-like space that the couple could style to their own desires.

The professionals behind the lens at Carolyn and Ben’s wedding was Reminisce Photography, who is here to tell us a little more about their big day:

“Carolyn and Ben got married at Brooklyn Winery, a gorgeous winery and restaurant with perfect vintage touches and delicious wine. All the flowers are done in house, and what a gorgeous job they do.”

** Real Wedding ** Fun-filled Portraiture

Today’s wedding sneak peak isn’t bursting at the seams with intricate details… I chose it because it is absolutely oozing with fun and I thought that it would be a great way to inspire you to think about your wedding portraiture. It is important to reflect your personalities, and you can tell from these stunning images that Rachael and Amon are a whole lotta fun…Not only that but the balloons and streamers make great decor inspiration for the whole day as well!

Oli Sansom, the photographer, shared the story behind this colour popping wedding:

“The inspiration behind Rachael & Amon’s wedding came from their combined personality traits. The whole day mirrored the type of people that they are. Rach being a whimsical creative type and Amon being a sophisticated traditionalist type, they wanted a wedding that felt both formal and informal at the same time.”

“Rachael used a loosely applied floral aesthetic to achieve a little bit of cohesion in the bridal party, and let the colour do the rest of the talking.”

the ceremony

“Their wedding was held at the beautiful Good Shepherd Chapel, Abbotsford. Rachael’s sister-in-law, Katie, sang “Fools Rush In” as the bride walked down the aisle in a gown made by Melbourne couture designer Helen Manuel. Amon waited for her at the end in a custom cerulean blue Ralph Lauren suit and black bow tie. Bridesmaids picked their own dresses (you always end up with great results when ladies choose their own dress!). Groomsmen wore a floral print paul smith shirt and bow tie and suits from their closets. After the nuptials, the couple was whisked away in a friend’s 1975 black mustang convertible for photos.”
