Summer is in full swing and this wedding fits right in, full of bright colors and sunshine. Bursts of aqua and yellow pop up everywhere brightening the day. Once again lace and burlap display just how darling they can be when combined. Their super cute stationery suite from Designs in Paper added the perfect whimsy.

words from the vendors

Hayley and Will met during their first semester of school at MTSU. He sat behind her in Biology, they started hanging out after class, and have been together ever since! Shortly after they started dating, Will left to study abroad in Australia for a semester, and they talked every day during his absence.

But absence makes the heart grow fonder, and years later, Will proposed in the science building where they met, tricking Hayley by saying he had to go pick up some transcripts! These two are so sweet together, and their wedding, which took place at historic Cedarwood in Nashville, TN, was such an emotional day.

It was so sweet to watch Hayley take everything in when she arrived at Cedarwood. She and her bridesmaids teared up as they walked through where everything was going to take place. An emotional first look, followed by a beautiful garden ceremony, led into one heck of a party to top off the perfect day!

Hayley described their wedding style as vintage, southern, simple, and FUN! The aqua, yellow, and gray color scheme was accented with pops of vintage printed cloths from Cedarwood‘s collection, and fit perfectly with the monogrammed elements Hayley and Will brought to add to the decor. The “LOVE” banner on the dance floor also made a fun addition! A sparkler exit sent the newlyweds off in style to start their life together!

words from the vendors

From Dana Cubbage Weddings:
Megan and Joe chose Magnolia Plantation in Charleston, SC as the backdrop for their gorgeous royal purple wedding. Together with their closest friends and family, they enjoyed the most perfect spring day here in Charleston and the two of them just glowed all day long. From Megan’s gorgeous lace Maggie Sottero gown to the guys’ dapper grey suits, everything was picture perfect. After a beautiful First Look, we were able to take full advantage of the plantation for photos.

Following their heart felt ceremony beneath the oaks, we snuck off to the white bridge – and those are some of my all-time favorite images! Guests dined on delicious Southern food and celebrated with the newlyweds all night long. The ladies of Pure Luxe Bride did a fabulous job bringing Megan and Joe’s vision to life. It was truly an amazing day!

Linnea Paulina Photography

But before that we invite you to enjoy Anna and Tommy’s beautiful white wedding at Oregon’s Pearson Air Museum. To see more of these amazing images captured by Linnea Paulina Photography be sure to stop by the full gallery.

words from the vendors

From Linnea Paulina Photography:
Tommy and Anna were married in Vancouver, Washington in September 2013. Their wedding ceremony took place under a historic oak tree in the middle of a beautiful green field. Their wedding reception was held in a gorgeous old airplane hangar which was transformed with garlands hanging from the rafters and a good sprinkling of string lights. Their wedding has a classic feel with natural roots.

a bit about the venue

We can’t say how much we enjoy seeing weddings and/or receptions held in interestingly alternative spaces. Anna and Tommy chose the Pearson Air Museum as the location for their wedding reception. Natural light pours in through the massive windows of this old airplane hanger and bounces beautifully around it’s whitewashed walls and glossy white floors making it the perfect location for a light and airy all white wedding.

steal worthy idea

Interested in feeding people but not blowing your budget on a meal for 100+ people? Don’t you worry we have three budget friendly reception menus ideas that will satisfy your guests and your wallet!

1. Wedding Brunch: Depending on time of you wedding you can easily serve a full brunch spread that can include everything from  french toast, pancakes, bacon and sausage, waffles and omelets. This sort of meal tends to be much cheaper then a full dinner and your guest are just as happy.

2. Appetizers and Cocktails: This option will allow you to serve a variety of drinks and keep your guests mingling while they munch on tasty snacks . Plus with your wedding cake being served a little later your guests will never notice that they missed a meal.

3. Dessert Only: Let’s face it, we all go to weddings for one thing. Cake! So why not just skip to the best part of the night and save yourself the dinner bill. putting together a creative dessert table can be just as fun and memorable.
