Greenery lovers: get ready to swoon! This romantic Russian outdoor wedding from Tandem Wedding captured by Sasha Dzyubchuk is too stunning! We love the bride’s gorgeous gowns (yes, there are multiple and all fabulous). The ceremony backdrop under a floral and draped tree is utterly enchanting.
First thing we knew for sure- we wanted a countryside wedding. We chose a countryside hotel with beautiful green grounds for the ceremony and a beautiful loft/barn for the reception. We didn’t want to stick with one particular style, so we combined a few. We wanted our wedding to be romantic, elegant, and natural with fresh greenery decor.
Our attires were rather classic. Classic black tuxedo for the groom. As for the bride, I had 3 attires: first one for ceremony- A-line silhouette Milla Nova dress with floral elements, second one for the reception- sparkly light A-line dress, and a third one was for the wedding dance- a combination of white silk midi skirt with a bodysuit.
We didn’t want a “standard” ceremony arch, so we decided to decorate a tree and luckily found a perfect one.
We had lots of greenery with an addition of neutral white/beige flowers, also lots of wooden details. Also while planning, we decided to connect our story with decor details, so instead of classic table numbers we had names of States that meant something for us (California where we met, Pennsylvania where we also lived together, etc.)

Ending off the week with this romantic vintage bridal inspiration captured by Poppy & Sage Photography. To commemorate her grandparents’ 50th wedding anniversary, Hannah donned her grandmother’s gown for a timeless portrait session. With a beautiful heirloom gown, old family photographs, and a 1928 Chrysler, this shoot is a vintage lovers dream.
Hannah Hayes Sisson shares: HEIRLOOM pays homage to the circle of life; encompassing both enduring and young love. This shoot celebrates two significant milestones for my family. In essence it commemorates both the enduring love between my grandparents as they reach their Golden Wedding Anniversary. And as I wear this heirloom of my grandmother’s wedding gown, it is also an opportunity for me to contemplate my future as I transition from adolescence into adulthood.

We’ve fallen head over heels for this chic Sonoma destination wedding from Tan Weddings & Events captured by Elizabeth Warrick! With a neutral color palette and classic details, this outdoor wedding is so lovely. We love the emerald green jewel tone bridesmaid gowns!
We wanted to go for a classic romantic look. I grew up in wine country in Europe and adore old stone buildings, greenery and vineyards. We wanted a place that would have fabulous weather in October but also a place we knew our guests would enjoy as their own special getaway. Sonoma was a place we both enjoyed and it ticked all the boxes. When we found Sonoma Golf Club, it just fit the exact vision we were looking for. As far as colors, we wanted to keep in neutral and classic.
We wanted to keep the attire neutral with jewel earth tones. All men in tuxes and all ladies in jewel tone gowns.
Since I’m in food media, food was very important to us and being able to customize our menu to make it ours. We also really wanted to set the mood with live jazz during cocktail hour and while people ate dinner. We searched hundred of bands to find the right one. But our biggest must was to have a multi-event experience as everyone was from out of town: a welcome reception the day before our wedding to have both sides meet and mingle, the wedding day and brunch with bubbles the day after to exchange funny stories from the night before. I feel like our entire wedding was a splurge to be honest. We had a much smaller budget to begin with and ended up throwing it out the window for a once in a lifetime experience.
Colin and I loved every moment of our wedding. We loved eating dinner under twinkle lights and the setting sun listening to the jazz. The day of the wedding can be a bit of a blur for the bride and groom so we thoroughly enjoyed the rehearsal dinner/welcome reception and the brunch as times for us to just exhale and enjoy all our loved ones. I mistakenly ate an hor d’oeuvre from the cocktail hour while waiting to be announced with my husband for dinner. I dropped sauce all over my silk dress and had all my bridesmaids helping to get it clean with some soda water and a blow dryer. My wedding planner also last minute made me a garter our of rope since i lost mind before the toss. She was a lifesaver!
Your wedding day will never go 100% smoothly. Just take a breath, enjoy the day and slow your mind. It will be over in a flash of a second and you don’t want to spend any of it fixated on what ends up not being perfect. No one will see it but you and at the end of the day, it wont matter much.
