Bohemian Barn Wedding

Packed with hanging stained glass window panes and a vintage rug backdrop, I’m head over heels for this bohemian barn wedding captured by Joyeuse Photography. Amanda and Steve envisioned a rustic and relaxed big day, and I’d say they ended up with just that. With no set color scheme and gobs of handmade elements, this celebration is definitely one for the books!

From the bride, Amanda: We wanted our wedding to be relaxed, fun and non-traditional. We wanted it to really reflect us as a couple. We decided to combine styles that we each enjoyed. Overall, we envisioned a rustic venue with a vintage feel.

We didn’t set a color scheme for our wedding. We didn’t want to be restrained to certain colors while choosing tablecloths, flowers, dresses, etc. We had many different colors and shades and it ended up really working with everything! We also did as much DIY as possible. I made our wedding invitations, centerpieces, table numbers, escort card stand, favors and other reception decor. I also collected vintage china from thrift shops for months, as well as an antique globe that we had our guests sign. My mother was kind enough to make our wedding cake and the cupcakes for the guests. Making these items ourselves really helped us make this wedding our own, and kept us under budget!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Relax. As we got closer to our big day, we realized that even if we didn’t finish all of the final touches, the day was still going to be perfect. If you have a venue, food and music you are going to have the most amazing wedding. Don’t stress over a dress not matching or the font on the place cards.

Portuguese Beach Wedding

Anyone who knows me is well aware that I’m a sucker for a good destination wedding, and any time Piteira Photography sends over a feature from their homeland of Portugal, I can’t help but do a little happy dance. Como Branco Wedding Concepts jumped on board to style Catarina and Rui’s wedding day on a Portuguese beach, which in no way disappointed.

From the bride, Catarina: It was the most amazing and exciting day of our lives. Well… the rain and the clouds started to threaten our plans of having an unforgettable wedding on the beach. Our hope that everything would be alright flew away with the wind… at some point the weather was so bad that we were hopeless and we finally accepted the idea of having a wet ceremony :) However, it turned out that the angels were with us. Everything went perfectly and the sun could not have been brighter. All the emotions were running high, from the moment I took my shoes off and walked side by side with my father on the sand, until the moment I saw my future husband with tears in his eyes waiting for me (it is a picture that I will remember for the rest of my days).

We finally got married around 4:30pm with the blessing of our beloved family and friends from around the world. Today, we feel very grateful for having the opportunity to share this moment with the most important people in our lives. We tried to bring part of us into our wedding. All the details were carefully considered – e.g. the beach and the ride on the Vespa which made our day special as it is how we go around the city in a sunny day. The reception was long and we partied hard… until 8am… in the end we were exhausted but beyond happy to be married and ready to live happily ever after!

Woodsy Slovenia Styled Wedding

Photos By: Nastja Kovacec

It’s not everyday that we receive gorgeous images all the way from Slovenia, but when we get it, they are nothing short of beautiful. Photographer Nastja Kovacec dreamed up of a sweet intimate setting in a field away from the city buzz, and intimate it was:

From the photographer, Nastja: when I first thought of doing a styled shoot, I immediately wanted it to be a DIY rustic styled wedding. I had a clear vision where I wanted it to be and who’s going to pose as newlyweds. The shoot took place in Slovenia, on the outskirts of a beautiful idyllic camp, surrounded by lakes, rivers and forest. I wanted to incorporate mostly homemade decor made out of wood, paper and other natural materials.

Martina and Robert were my first choice of a couple, because they are just as natural and spontaneous as it gets. They’ve been together for seven years, so the chemistry was definitely there. I wanted it to be something special on Slovenian scene, so I thought bridesmaids and groomsmen were a good way to showcase that, because Slovenian weddings tend to be a little different. For a playful touch we created a sweet corner for the girls and cigar & whiskey corner for the boys!
