Sarah and Tony call L.A. home but they wanted to throw a destination wedding weekend their guests would never forget. With loved ones traveling from across the world, including Tony’s family from Nigeria, they brought everyone to Saratoga, Wyoming for a rustic retreat unlike any other. Ashley Sawtelle photographed and we’re so ready to watch it all unfold.
Los Angeles residents, Sarah & Tony, wanted to create a memorable 3-day wedding weekend at Brush Creek Ranch in Saratoga, Wyoming. Guests came from all over the U.S. and even Nigeria – where Tony’s family is from – to enjoy the great outdoors and celebrate the two. The couple wanted to pair decor elements with the beautiful surroundings of the ranch during the fall season.
Dusty lavender, sage, wheat, and whites were incorporated into the floral designs, ceremony and reception decor. The ceremony took place inside with candle light, rustic wood pews and greens hanging from the light fixtures above.
Guests got to enjoy cocktail hour on the deck of the main lodge witnessing the beautiful sunset and were welcomed into the grand tent for dinner and dancing.

It’s fab products meets amazing customer service, one living space at a time. Scroll for the tips of a lifetime.
FOR THE LIVING ROOM
Whether you plan on hosting your fair share of game nights or simply like cuddling up with your sweetie for a good movie, keeping your living room on point is key.

The wedding may be over, but the fun doesn’t have to be. If you’re feeling those post-wedding blues, don’t fret: this next year (and the rest of your life, for that matter!) is going to be the best yet. As you settle into your newlywed bliss and throw your to-do lists out the window, you and your significant other can relax and enjoy the life you are creating together. Whether you have wanderlust, babies on the radar or simply look forward to a night in with no discussions of cocktail napkins, these tips will keep you feeling blissful all year long.
Whether you plan a monthly date night or start dreaming up your anniversary trip, having something else to look forward to post-wedding will keep the blues at bay. For me, this was as simple as planning quick day trips from our house every few weekends. Having those little journeys to look forward to helped me move past the slump that I got into right after the wedding (and the planning) ended.
MAKE COMMUNICATING A PRIORITY
Admit it: during wedding planning, your conversations always ended up circling back to color palettes and entrée options. Now that those things are behind you, it’s important to keep talking. We’re not saying it has to be all day, every day, but asking each other about your lives, having discussions about your interests and keeping your spouse informed on what’s going on in your world are all it takes to keep your communication game stronger than ever.
FIND THINGS TO DO TOGETHER AND APART
My husband loves playing Ultimate Frisbee. Me, not so much. So every Saturday, he spends the morning playing, while I spend it with friends, doing yoga and having “me” time. Even though the time is short, having moments apart keeps us balanced and helps us enjoy the time we do spend together just a little bit more, like trying new restaurants, binging a new show or exploring our city.
HAVE THE MONEY TALK (A LOT)
It may not be the prettiest piece of advice, but it is probably the most important. If you’re joining your bank accounts, it’s good to do this right away, if not, you still need to talk about how you’ll handle joint expenses. Cook a nice dinner, open a bottle of wine and get talking: being up-to-date on each others financial goals makes life go much smoother, no matter what kind of bumps in the road you may encounter.
EXPAND YOUR CIRCLE, BUT DON’T LOSE TOUCH WITH YOUR OLD FRIENDS
You may have taken a 2-week honeymoon immediately after the wedding or are just basking in your married life and spending time alone, but either way, newlyweds often experience a brief reprieve from their social lives post-wedding. Once you get that out of your system, it’s important to reconnect with your friends. Spend time with them one-on-one and make sure none of your besties feel isolated now that you have a new title. And bonus: married life can bring about new married friends. Find ways to expand your inner circle by joining clubs, talking to the new girl at work or getting involved with a charity. New friends always keeps things fun and interesting!
DON’T GIVE INTO SOCIETAL PRESSURES
You may already be internally rolling your eyes every time someone asks you about a baby. Whether you’ve already started trying or don’t feel that babies are in the cards, make sure you’re doing what feels right for you and your significant other. Pressure will come from family and friends (and even complete strangers!), but if you stay true to yourselves, you’ll make the right decisions in all matters of your life.
RELIVE THE DAY AS MUCH AS YOU CAN
You put a lot into the wedding and made it the best day ever! It’s important to remember all those amazing feelings you felt. The best way to do this? Keep looking through those photos, watch your video, and reminisce on that funny thing the best man did during his speech. For me, creating little wedding albums for my family with their favorite images was a fun, and productive, way to dive into all those beautiful photos over and over again. Put your favorite photo as the background of your phone or framed in your house, text your Maid of Honor to remind her how grateful you still are for her help, or just browse through your album during quiet moments on the couch—all are great ways to keep the day fresh in your thoughts.
CELEBRATE THE LITTLE THINGS
Did you get a promotion at work? Finally, finish binge-watching Prison Break on Netflix? Have a great conversation with your Mother-in-law? Treat yourselves to a night out, a new accessory for your home or a glass of champagne. Toasting to all the good in life, and doing it often (no matter how small!), will keep you feeling happy, even when things aren’t as lovely.
NEVER STOP SAYING “I LOVE YOU”
This one may seem easy, but with real life comes real problems and there may be times when it’s not so easy. No matter how angry or upset you may be, never stop saying those three little words. Sometimes all we need is a simple reminder to make everything okay.

Oh to have a backyard this gorgeous. I’m convinced this particular spot was made just for hosting weddings. Set against an oak-filled estate, with the most elegant, romantic details and florals crafted by Florabella, this day is a sea of beauty. And with Sylvie Gil’s images in tow, the proof is in the pudding. Carve out some time for this pretty gallery. You won’t regret it.
From the photographer… Hosted at the bride’s grandparent’s private estate in Woodside, California, Jessica and Michael’s wedding was an elegant outdoor affair. Jessica wore a modern Vera Wang gown with a classic veil, and her bridesmaids each selected a floor-length champagne gown of their choosing to make for a cohesive but unique look. The couple exchanged handwritten vows under the oak trees in the garden where the bride spent time during her childhood, and notes of Spanish guitar accompanied the affair. After cocktail hour on the lawn, complete with signature His & Her cocktails, dinner was served in a clear top tent, allowing guests a view of the towering redwoods overhead and the starry night sky beyond. We used a lovely sea glass palette of pale blues and greens with slate grey accents to create an elegant but understated ambiance as guests dined on lamb and salmon and drank a selection of wines from the bride’s family’s winery. A custom floral chandelier acted as the focal point of the decor atop the dance floor, where guests danced late into the evening. Finally, to conclude the festivities, guests bid the newlyweds farewell with festive sparkler departure as they were whisked away to start their new life as husband and wife.

Growing up, the bride spent her summers at the family cottage on the lake so it’s no surprise Izzy wanted to say “I do” in exactly that spot. She married her love, Tom surrounded by their favorite people, with Sincerely, Ginger Weddings & Events working her magic on the wedding day design. The photos by Rebecca Yale will leave you craving summer in a serious way and we can’t get enough.
Izzy and Tom were married on July 9, 2016 on Deer Lake at the Boyne Mountain Resort in MI. Izzy grew up spending her summer’s at her family’s cottage on the lake and knew that it would be the perfect spot to say her I Do’s. The bride and groom were married next to the lake facing the beach house all covered in ivy, which carried over into the flowers and design for the day. Izzy’s brother-in-law, Max, officiated the ceremony and the bride and groom were accompanied by Izzy’s sister and Tom’s brother as their Matron of Honor and Best Man. Instead of a traditional wedding party both the bride and groom invited their friends to get ready with them and take pictures with them all in shades of grey, cream and blue.
The custom letterpress invitation suite featured a custom watercolor crest and the Save The Date and welcome note featured watercolor illustrations of the dock on the lake and a map of the Traverse Bay area. The place cards were also watercolored in shades of blue and displayed on a hanging macrame piece at the entrance of the tent decorated in ivy. The bride wore a white grecian style Jenny Packham dress and accessorized it with blue Valentino pumps very similar to the shoes her sister wore the previous year to her wedding. The bride kept her family close to her on the day by wrapping her bouquet in her great grandmother’s handkerchief. The bride also paid tribute to her family by following in her mother and sister’s footsteps and smashing her own glass during the I Do’s.
The bride and groom had their first look by the lake followed by portraits in the forest before the ceremony while guests enjoyed a pre-ceremony refreshment. After the ceremony guests returned to the cocktail lounge area by the water and the Matron of Honor and officiant’s 6-month-old golden doodle puppy made a quick appearance. Guests were welcomed into the tent for dinner and dancing, which had been set in Tuscan blue linens with dark blue napkins and gold silverware for contrast with organic white and green centerpieces. The head table was a rectangular farm table with a leafy green runner dotted with white garden roses and peonies and a couch for the bride and groom to lounge on in between dances.
The bride surprised her groom with a dessert table full of donuts- his favorite treat- in addition to the cake. After cutting the cake the bride and groom took a quiet moment to themselves to walk to the end of the dock and watch sunset wrapped in one of the blankets thoughtfully provided for guests to snuggle up in as the nights get cold.

Feast your eyes upon a sunset wedding filled with the colors of the desert and a signature lavender hue that paid homage to the Groom’s mother in such a sweet way. Designed by Some Like It Classic, with florals by The Flower Studio and imagery by Melissa Jill Photography, this celebration will make you fall head over heels for the desert at sunset. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t get any prettier than that.
From the Bride… We picked a place special to us, and chose a traditional Jewish ceremony. We chose the color purple to honor Alex’s mother who passed away suddenly two years prior. Purple was her favorite color, her memory was everywhere making this an extra special day. For our first dance we chose a song by Alex’s favorite band, this song was unique and special for us, Alex’s sister preformed which made this moment even more special. Purple, whites, blush, candlelight dinner with wood and rustic details under the stars, light and bright dance floor and drapery surrounding, from menus to programs we put our touch on everything and felt the guest would leave with a night to remember. For the guest giveaways, Alex’s family bakery sent their famous Zaro’s black and white cookies from New York in a custom purple and white for the guests to take home. This was a unique and special personal touch and guests love it!

If ever there were a wedding that we’d want to live inside, it would definitely be this one. We’re talking ocean views, dream locale and a vacation turned wedding celebration in Phuket, Thailand. And just wait until you peek at the ceremony spot. Held on a rooftop overlooking all the gorgeousness of Phuket and made even prettier at the hands of IAMFLOWER, The Bridal Planner Thailand and Vasia Photography, pore through a wedding that puts the dreamy in destination.
Krystle & Coby got married in Phuket, Thailand at the incredible Sri Panwa. Their ceremony felt as if it was above the clouds, held on a rooftop with views of the water and landscape surrounding them as they said their vows. Every detail of this wedding was impeccably thought out by the bride, from the traditional tea ceremony to the dancing outdoors to a firework display.

We all want to look like a princess on THE big day, but channeling your inner Cinderella doesn’t have to mean saying “goodbye” to that sassy side your special someone fell in love with. Take it from Morilee Madeline Gardner – you can definitely have both. Think fabulous ball gowns that are one part traditional, one part modern and all parts romantic. Check out five of our faves (with a twist!) below.
THE MATILDA WEDDING DRESS
There’s a reason that Madeline Gardner is known as the “Queen of the Ball Gown” and it’s because of pretty little numbers like the Matilda. From the crystal beaded floral embroidery to the illusion bodice to the tulle skirt, this one’s an absolute stunner.
THE MARCIA WEDDING DRESS
We’re true believers that a little touch of lace can make any moment that much more romantic and the Marcia gown from Morilee Madeline Gardner is proving that theory… and then some. Think crystal beaded Alencon Lace, a horsehair trimmed flounced skirt and covered buttons. It’s the definition of fairy tale… with a contemporary flair.
THE MARIGOLD WEDDING DRESS
Hello, dreamy, dreamy ball gown. This gorgeous stunner from Morilee Madeline Gardner (also known as the Marigold) is basically straight from a Disney movie. It’s beaded embroidered appliqués meets tulle over sparkle net meets a Diamanté waistband that will show off those curves beautifully. We love.
THE MARISSA WEDDING DRESS
Pairing an ultra-flattering top with a flounced skirt is the sure fire way to leave all of your guests talking and when it comes to the Marissa gown from Morilee Madeline Gardner, it’s also one of the prettiest ways ever to say “I do”. Think a little bit classic with a whole lot of romantic layers and you are sooo on the right track.
THE MARILYN WEDDING DRESS
The Marilyn is the sort of gown that doesn’t need an explanation. From the frosted, embroidered lace bodice to the crystal beaded straps to the beautiful layered skirt to that back, it all comes together to make one serious stunning statement. Oh, and that belt? It’s Morilee Madeline Gardner perfection.

This is my kind of e-sesh… bare feet in the sand, unreal views that will take your breath away and the sweetest hand-holding. Not to mention, this gorgeous Bride-to-be is on our west coast team. A little extra excuse to pop the bubbly and sit with this gallery from Christine Donee for a while longer. Also, don’t miss her charming story below of how they met!
From the Bride-to-be… Meeting in remote destinations, red-eye flights, and a sense of adventure was how Nick and I started our relationship five years ago. We dated for three years long distance between New York City (where I was an entertainment editor) and Hawaii (where Nick worked at Pearl Harbor), and somewhere between all the distance between us we just kept getting closer.
It only seemed fitting when Nick proposed in one of my favorite places in New York City’s Central Park, that we take engagement photos in one of our favorite destinations together — Big Sur, California. The rugged coastline, sweeping views of the Pacific, lush green bluffs, and the wild open of the California air were definitely calling. Thankfully, our incredible photographer Christine Donee was up for the adventure!
The early part of the day was rainy and blustery and as Nick and I drove the 5 hours up California’s Highway 1 in order to meet Christine in a remote section near Julia Pfeiffer State Park “just in time for magic hour” the hour was looking less than magical with storm clouds rolling in. And then in a twist of pure west coast magic, the storm clouds scattered away and we were lucky enough to get 1 hour of beautiful Big Sur weather for shots along the beaches and bluffs.
And then just like that we were off again, with me jetting off on a red-eye to Nashville to be on the red carpet at the CMA Awards the next morning and Nick headed to Los Angeles.
We’re so grateful to Christine for being able to capture this magic moment, where for a little while, time and distance seemed to stand still. We’re getting hitched in spring in 2017 in the equally gorgeous destination of Santa Ynez, California.
Designed around the idea of “vintage nostalgia with a modern spin”, Emily and Patrick’s wedding day deserves a style category all its own. Think Southern elegance with a touch of roaring ’20s glam, and bold black and white stripes for a modern punch. Graham Terhune worked his magic behind the camera and we have the entire affair right at your fingertips.
From the Bride & Groom… Emily and Patrick met on Labor Day weekend of 2014; ten days after Patrick had moved to Raleigh for a job in the tech industry. A mutual friend was in town, and so over cheerwine and brownies in Emily’s sister’s kitchen, sparks began to fly. Emily, an illustrator and owner of Emily Brooks Designs, accepted Patrick’s request for a tour of Raleigh after he had seen a recent map she had drawn for a local magazine. Two days later, they went on their first date at Poole’s Diner, which they would recreate a year and a half later for their engagement photos. Patrick popped the question the day before Thanksgiving before they were to drive up to Virginia to celebrate the holiday with his family.
When planning for the wedding, they knew they wanted to incorporate their loves for their home states in the details. The Save the Date was the first nod to this – a watercolor of Virginia and North Carolina, with the star over both the groom’s hometown of Salem and the bride’s hometown of Raleigh. The color palette for the wedding was pulled from a textile project Emily had created while in New York based on a Vermeer painting. The rich hunter green was paired with a light blush pink, along with the accents of black, white, and gold. Both the ceremony, held at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, and the reception, held at the North Carolina Museum of Art were blank canvases, as both are mostly a brilliant white; both inside and out. Patrick and Emily loved both traditional and modern spaces, so these two venues were a perfect melding of worlds. Their love for vintage nostalgia with a modern spin was expressed through the bride’s Jenny Packham dress, which fit Emily’s desire to have a 1920’s era feeling gown.
She had always loved her great grandmother’s look on her wedding day; especially her grand bouquet with tiny flowers tied into rich cream colored streamers flowing to the ground. Her florist was able to recreate a vintage airy garden bouquet with roses, hypericum berries, lisianthus, tuberoses, chocolate Queen Ann’s lace, and trailing vines of jasmine and passion flower. Patrick wore a peak lapel tuxedo and Res Ipsa black suede formal loafers. The nod to a vintage feel also extended into the traditional silhouette portraits of the two of them; the original print was matted and signed by guests, and was also seen on some of their wedding weekend paper goods.
Emily’s calligraphy was seen throughout the details; from the invitation suite to the ceremony programs, to the reception signage. She also created a map of Raleigh that was put in boxes for guests, that were filled with sweet and savory snacks from North Carolina and Virginia. The map was also put into use through the mobile app that Patrick created for guests, with a wedding weekend schedule and places to check out in Raleigh. To bring in more of a cabana feel to the reception, monstera leaves, palms, black and white striped runners, and white paper lanterns were used throughout the indoor and outdoor spaces.

This post excerpt is from Rebel Hill Florist with some tips on how to properly plan wedding colors.
“When the ball drops on New Years, many will also drop to their knee and ask the question of a lifetime. As couples celebrate in the midst of the falling confetti and the loud noise-makers, they know they are about to embark on the journey of a lifetime.
Once the excitement begins to settle down, however, couples now realize that they have to do a considerable amount of planning. As a part of the planning adventure, selecting the right wedding colors can be an enormous task. The wedding colors will guide the couple as they make a number of different decisions, including the colors of the dresses for the bridal party, the table linens, the flowers and more.
The right wedding colors will be unique to the couple and each pair should select ones that fit their vision for their wedding and their personalities. There are, however, a few rules of thumb that can help couples avoid potential mistakes that might result in final decorations that do not look as beautiful together has hoped.”
