Classy & Elegant/Childlike & Playful
June 13, 2009
There is something about this wedding that is not only classy and elegant but childlike and playful…what a great combo!
Luke Snyder explains…
Sara and Mike bussed their friends and family into the redwoods of the Santa Cruz mountains to host their wedding at a very unique location.
Nestldown, reminiscent of Disneyland with its miniature train, waterfalls, ponds, gnome home, and tree house put a whopping “Wow!” in the mouth of nearly every guest and a jam packed day full of celebration ensued.
The day began like a fantasy children’s tale, transformed into an emotional and heartfelt event, and finished with some serious booty-shakin’

Rainbow Summer Camp Wedding: Sara & Joe

As soon as I saw Sara's incredible rainbow dress I just knew I had to feature this wedding. I mean, goodness, any bride that rocks a dress like that is guaranteed to have an amazing wedding. I wasn't wrong! The day was held at Camp Kinkora in Montreal where the bride used to go to summer camp as a kid.
Eccentric, Whimsical & Eclectic Homespun Wedding: Erik & Caitlin
February 11, 2013
I didn't think people like this existed in real life. When I first laid eyes on Erik & Caitlin's wedding images I was convinced it was a styled shoot with models. This couldn't be an actual wedding, surely? But I was wrong and my heart whooped with joy.
The wedding took place in September at the bride's parent's home. The entire wedding cost less than $5000. (I know! As if it wasn't amazing enough already, right?!) Caitlin designed her own dress (which was made by the mother of the groom and ended up costing only $190, including the veil!), wore $20 shoes (which she customised) and her floral headpiece was made by one of her bridesmaids an hour before the ceremony. The cakes were homemade, the flowers were grown and collected by friends and family and the invitations were hand painted and wax sealed by the bride. All the catering was done by the mother of the bride and the bride's brother Matt acted as bartender. As you can probably imagine the couple also decorated the entire space themselves.

I don't usually like to make assumptions about which weddings might be the most popular ones that we publish, but I'm pretty confident to state that I think you are all going to lose your collective shit when you see Lisa and Tom's wedding. Why? Well would you get a load of her DRESS!!! Before we move onto discussing anything else about this one, we need to talk about that immediately!

How do I even begin to describe a wedding like this? Eco? Hippy Chic? Organic? Ourdoorsy? Woodland nymph-like? Musical? Midsummer Night's Dream-esque? None of these words seem to do any kinda of justice to this beautiful wedding.
Samuel & Jessica were married in Moravian falls at Pennel Horse farm. They wanted they day to have a raw and natural feel with a bit of mystical charm and simplicity. "They defined their wedding by what they love and not what tradition says to do", photographer Shelley told me "so they combined some common elements of the wedding ceremony, seasoned with of a little bit of hippie, funk, vintage and organic charm. Every little thing was a reflection of who they are as individuals and as a couple."
Their bridal/groomal parties were huge and the woods were filled with light and music from the lanterns they all carried and the drums they played. The ceremony was a really emotional one (as you can see from the video below) the pair washed each other's feet and Sam even sang and played guitar to his new wife. The reception looks like a blast! The guests ate great organic food and they danced into the night around a giant bonfire.
Jessica's dress was by Amalia Cararra. She bought her dress at "Stardust Celebrations" in Dallas, Texas, where she she was spotted by the creators of a new reality show on WEtv called "Girl Meets Dress." The couple's love story will be aired March 9th as the premier episode! Be sure to check out a snippet of their wedding video below as a little sneaky peak!
Thanks to Shelley, Jess & Sam for sharing their a.m.a.z.i.n.g ceremony and wedding with us (and yes, there are over 100 photographs in this post but I had to include them all!)
DIY Irish Wedding with an Outdoor Woodland Ceremony: Noel & Dee
January 30, 2013
Noel & Dee's Cork wedding had a laid back, bohemian vibe and was held at Ballyvolane House. The ceremony was held outside in the woods. "The owners of Ballyvolane House, Justin & Jenny Green and their wedding coordinator Breffne McKenna organised our ceremony and reception flawlessly", began the bride. "We didn't have to worry or think about anything on the day as everything went so smoothly. Even when our celebrant didn't show up, there was no issue as Justin stood in to conduct our ceremony in the woods. This made it even more special. Our guests didn't know any different, and just assumed Justin was the celebrant until he came around during the reception with a tray of champagne. Some of the guests commented that we were really getting our money's worth out of him! We can't thank them enough for going above and beyond in every way."
Woodland Wedding with Antlers, Feather & Herbs: Leah & Simon
November 12, 2012
"I wasn't the kind of girl who had dreamed about her wedding day since the age of five", began newlywed Leah who married Simon earlier this year, "and being engaged on December 20th and getting married on March 31st didn't give us a whole lot of time to plan anyway. So I found myself in a little deep at first, but a few days into discussing ideas, we realized how cool it was to be able to create an event from the things we love - nature, the woods, rustic details. Daily life delivers you many inspirational things, and having eclectic tastes we knew it wouldn't be a cookie cutter or 'paint by numbers' kinda wedding."
