An Intimate Destination Wedding on a Tropical Island {with only the bride + groom}

This featured destination wedding {on a tropical island near the Indian Ocean} was held at the beautiful Outrigger Resort Mauritius and it's absolutely gorgeous. Look at all those palm trees! The bride and groom decided they wanted their wedding to be on a tropical Island to skip the very traditional ways as they desired something very intimate. Photos by Agape Productions.

Both the bride and groom prepared in different rooms as they wanted to create the wow effect when Victoria {the bride} walked down the aisle to meet Ordelus {the groom}. Their ceremony was short but very emotional and with having a two person wedding - there was lots of time to take even more beautiful photos of the happy couple. They ended their day with a special candlit dinner on the beach with fabulous {natural} scenery surrounding them.

A Classic Southern Wedding on a Family Farm in South Carolina

Today's featured wedding, photographed by Hannah Ruth Photography LLC, is absolutely gorgeous and features one of my favorite wedding flowers - pink peonies. The wedding was held on the 50 acre family farm of the brides- and the bride's father and groom worked together to turn the former horse barn into a dream farm wedding venue. The ceremony took place down the hill from the home and overlooked a beautiful waterfront. The wedding was topped off with southern home-cooked food and BBQ.

The bride herself is a wedding calligrapher and knew exactly how she wanted to decorate the venue and set the tone for their wedding day. She incorporated blush, ivory and gold with the green and yellow of the lemons, limes and rosemary complementing the neutral tone perfectly.

The bride and her dad won the crowd with the surprise of the evening when they swayed to Forever Young before busting moves to Uptown Funk. They both kept it a secret while attending dance lessons for a month.

An Intimate Outdoor Virginia Wedding with a Ceremony Tree Planting

Today's featured couple, Peggy and Nik, had a beautiful intimate outdoor wedding ceremony where they celebrated not only their love for each other, but their love for nature with about 50 guests. Their wedding was beautifully photographed by Crystal Image Photography. During the ceremony, they planted a tree to bring their passion for their outdoors into one of the most important days of their lives. They exchanged their vows they wrote for one another and then planted the tree they had picked out. Their wedding took place at The Mill at Fine Creek in Powhatan, Virginia with the reception being held in the on-site cottage. Along with cake for dessert - their guests were treated to cannolis and tarts piled high, followed by dancing.
