It’s finally beginning to look like Fall here in New York, and we’re already longing for summer days. This fresh yellow wedding shot by April and Lindsey of Sweet Monday is just what we’ve been coveting. Hiromi and Mitsuru currently live in Japan, but flew back to California to host an intimate wedding with about 30 guests. Their bright and airy aesthetic is a match made in heaven with Rancho del Cielo, our newest favorite venue. Also, how much do you love their luscious florals by La Partie Events?

From Lindsey and April of Sweet Monday Photography:Hiromi and Mitsuru hosted a destination wedding (they live in Japan) for 30 of their most beloved friends and family at the intimate Rancho Del Cielo in Malibu. The details of the day were a combination of sweet and modern. Hiromi made the yellow table runners, as well as collecting tiny yellow glass vases to use sprinkled throughout the reception – all of which perfectly complimented the flowers done by Megan of La Partie Event). Guests filled in their “recipes for a happy marriage” as a keepsake for the couple, dined family style on gorgeous food created by Jill, who owns Rancho Del Cielo, and had treats from the beautiful dessert table by Sweet and Saucy Shop. Once the reception was underway, Mitsuru showed off his DJ skills to get the party going!

San Francisco wedding photography M. Sibthorpe

The beautiful images featured here, are from Jenny and Ethan’s lovely vintage-inspired wedding, at the Huron Substation in Los Angeles. Manali, of M. Sibthorpe Photography, describes Jenny and Ethan’s story as: An adorable little twist on boy meets girl. Jenny and Ethan met in high school, but they were not high school sweethearts since Jenny managed to mask her crush on Ethan until years later when they finally re-met, fell in love and got married!
We just adore that this love story was years in the making. We also adore those teal heels!

I love capturing those adorable moments that happen faster than you know it and weaving them into a story. A bride putting on her dress, a groom waiting to see her, the moments that make you laugh and cry in the ceremony, the kiss! And so much more. I draw on my background as a fine art photographer to document your wedding as an artist, and I draw on my experience of also once being a bride. I know that the photographs are the most tangible memories a couple will take away from their wedding day and I strive to make sure they are everything you could hope for.

San Francisco Garden Wedding

Garden Weddings

Nothing like a pretty DIY wedding fresh off the presses to feast our eyes on. So this morning we’re going to San Francisco to relish these gorgeous images by Stephen Hughes Loewinsohn. Britta and Kyle’s handmade fete was perfectly in sync thanks to coordinator Vera Devera of Va De Vie Events. We’re loving the garden setting, the vintage mix and pops of color everywhere. View all images from this colorful DIY wedding in the gallery.

From Vera Devera of Va De Vie Events: Britta and Kyle had been together for 10 years before tying the knot; these Midwest “kids” met in Arizona, moved to Costa Rica for a bit of adventure and recently settled in Oakland, CA last year after getting engaged.

Details of the wedding included colors of jadite, saffron and coral popped with accents of charcoal. We did a lot of hands on work, including hand-dying muslin ribbons in those colors to hang above her head table, to creating invitations with designer Lilli Keinaenen, mason jar escort cards, and more. Pilar Zuniga created a whimsical bouquet that was literally buttoned up with vintage buttons and fashioned handmade flower boxes.

Notes from Britta:
The most memorable part of our wedding day was when Kyle and I exchanged our vows. We had written our vows independent of one another, following the same format, and asked our officiant, a close friend, to put them together. As it turns out our thoughts on love and marriage are identical. They were funny, personal, and heartfelt—an honest reflection on our 10 years together and our hopes for the future. Other memorable moments were the toasts, all unique and sincere, my dance with my dad which he had taken lessons to prepare for, and the photo booth picture of a friend kissing my grandma.

Advice for other brides:
1. Hire a wedding coordinator! The number of minute details that go into planning a wedding is mind-boggling. Find a great one that you can trust who will let you call the shots.
2. Do as much ahead of time as possible. Leave nothing to the last minute.
3. Keep things in perspective. Your wedding is about bringing together family and friends to witness and celebrate the start of a new life. Not the party.
