Meghan & Kurt Baudler

Married September 1, 2013

Meghan & Kurt met in the second grade and she still has the letter he wrote to her in the 3rd grade to prove that love endures, going through all of elementary school together they then reconnected years later.2013-09-01 Kurt & Meghan-1738With such a history together, they wanted their wedding to focus on “going back to their roots.” Since they had met at such a young age, they decided to incorporate their shared childhood memories into their special day and on display at the ceremony was a childhood love letter. 2013-09-01 Kurt & Meghan-1656

The couple arranged a reading of the childhood classic, The Giving Tree, and as part of the décor they included chalkboard accents and used photos of themselves growing up for the table numbers. The tree-theme was used throughout the invitations, programs, decorations, and readings.2013-09-01 Kurt & Meghan-1652

Meghan and Kurt wanted the wedding to be simple and casually elegant, they chose Pageo Lavender Farms (their venue) as a starting point to help with deciding on the tone of the wedding and their colors of soft ivory, blush pink, and chocolate brown.  All of the elements came together and complemented the beauty that the farm already offered.2013-09-01 Kurt & Meghan-15172013-09-01 Kurt & Meghan-13662013-09-01 Kurt & Meghan-1092The only challenge for the couple in planning their event was knowing where to stop with the DIY even though they were having so much fun with it!

Rachelle & Beau Davis

Married October 19, 20132013-10- 19 Beau & Rachelle-1629
Rachelle and Beau met in college as neighbors. When Beau proposed, Rachelle knew that planning their wedding was going to be an absolute blast. She knew the style she was going for and went all in. Rachelle had a to-do list of what their priorities were, what the theme would be, and deadlines to keep the couple on task.2013-10- 19 Beau & Rachelle-1601
She knew how to make her and Beau’s “Pinterest” dream wedding a reality, but tackling each task one at a time, staying organized, and really exploring new creative outlets wasn’t something either had ever experienced before.2013-10- 19 Beau & Rachelle-13632013-10- 19 Beau & Rachelle-1410
The decision to have the wedding at Winchester Country Club in Meadow Vista, California was made so that Rachelle and Beau’s out-of-state guests could fly in close to the venue and see some outdoor beauty while visiting for the wedding. The bridal party fashion was an Anthropolgie-inspired, relaxed, eclectic feel because Rachelle wanted every choice in the wedding to be a reflection of her and Beau’s unique tastes. They like to mix it UP2013-10- 19 Beau & Rachelle-14102013-10- 19 Beau & Rachelle-1410!

One of the biggest challenges they faced was finding a get-away car! After months of researching someone in the Auburn area for an antique car, they found a sweet man that kindly acted as their chauffeur.
Rachelle and Beau’s wedding was an absolute dream come true for the bride, leaving her hoping that every woman could sit back and say that about their wedding day. One feeling that Rachelle could put into words about their ceremony and reception: pure bliss. As many couples say, take mental snapshots of the entire event because it really does move so quickly, and is over before you know it.

Bridal Fashion Week Spring 2014

New York’s Bridal Fashion Week is coming to a close now. Our favorite week of the year. You know, the week when all of our favorite wedding dress designers including Anne Barge, Monique Lhuillier, Oscar de La Renta, and Vera Wang show their latest collections on the runway! We’ve got an all-access pass to the most beautiful bridal runway shows. Join us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to see it all.

Here is a peak  at the Anne Barge runway.

For the Spring 2014 collections, Anne was inspired by the romance of the past! Imagine the soft pastels and sense of lightness as evoked by the Impressionist painter, Claude Monet. In particular, Monet’s vision and breath-taking interpretations of his opulent gardens at Giverny, France. Silhouettes are inspired by Parisien Couturier Pierre Balmain. We invite you to fantasize about the airy gowns of Balmain’s 1950s gowns on the set of Monet’s paintings in the gardens of Giverny! Perfection!! Website – www.annebarge.com
