An Elegant Summer Florida Wedding from Séverine Photography {with Pops of Yellow}

I'm loving the cheeriness in this Real Wedding of Emily and Jeff from Séverine Photography - it's an elegant summer wedding in Florida with beautiful white florals and pops of yellow throughout. Their wedding was held at the newest location of The White Room in St Augustine, The Villa Blanca. Wait until you see their dance together under a gorgeous crystal chandelier - and be sure you don't miss the photo with all the chandeliers at their ceremony spot.

An Elegant Canadian Golf Club Wedding {with something blue bridal shoes}

Today's pretty in pink wedding is absolutely beautiful. I'm in love with the spectacular wedding cake - look at those sugar flowers! And, the bride even wore "something blue" wedding shoes. Lesley of Pure Aperture Photography captured the wedding day of Monica and Jonathan seamlessly, even though the ceremony almost didn't happen outside with looming clouds overhead. The outdoor ceremony that Monica dreamed of happened - and then the clouds broke. Despite getting a bit soaked, the clouds parted and the sun came out just in time for the second round of family photos. Enjoy the gorgeous photos in the photo gallery below . . .

Glamorous Red + Gold Elegant Wedding with 2,000 Flowers in Australia

You are going to be blown away by today's featured wedding of Kristi and Steve that was photographed by Blumenthal Photography. The bride wore multiple different dresses at her wedding where the decor focused around the contrast of gold and different shades of red. The reception included over 2,000 individual flowers from Sydney Wedding Flowers which popped against the clear glass furniture and gold detailing.

When the bride was asked "What was important to you about your wedding?"
I really wanted our guests to be blown away, by everything! With this in mind we really had no limits set; the more glitz the better! Thousands of flowers and hundreds of candles, we wanted every element of our wedding to be incomparable and unforgettable. My dresses were also very important to me; I couldn't decide between having a big princess dress, or having a more sexy fitted dress... So in the end I decided to combine both! I also wanted to wow our guests with ANOTHER dress for the cutting of the cake, so I chose to literally match my dress with the cake and have gold detailing throughout.

When the bride was asked "What advice would you give to brides and grooms planning their day?" On your wedding day; take a deep breath and enjoy yourself! Your whole day goes so quickly so you really don't want to spend it stressing about minor details that may or may not go wrong. Your bridesmaids and groomsmen are there to help you, take advantage of that! If there’s anything that they can do to help, ask them so that you have one less thing on your mind and you can really embrace the day!

New Year's Eve Wedding filled with Cocktails and Confetti

Happy New Year's Eve. I have such a treat for you today. The wedding I'm showcasing took place exactly a year ago today - what a special night for Crystal and Jason. Happy Anniversary to the happy couple! Crystal wrote to me and said her and Jason were focused less on having the perfect wedding {I LOVE this} and more on throwing a truly amazing celebration. They chose New Year's Eve as their wedding date as they knew their guests would "relish the idea of a dual reason to revel". Happy Wedding. Happy New Year.

New Year's Eve Wedding Invitation Suite

The evening was filled with love, laughter, dinner, dancing, cocktails and confetti - all the best things for any wedding. And, their 7 year old son was their ring bearer who got to announce "You may kiss the Bride!". ---> Be sure to scroll down to see all the gorgeous photos and read Crystal's best wedding advice.

And, lastly - here is Crystal's Best Wedding Advice . . . Choose the right Vendors. Vendors you connect with! They are there to make the event run smoothly from beginning to end and top to bottom.  I've been know to be control freak, but in this case, we paid a little extra for extremely talented people - and more to the point, for piece of mind.  It was worth every single penny.  Also, remember that this is yours to do your way.  Make it look and feel like you and your Groom.  The guests will notice it, feel it... and love it!
