Destination Wedding at Private Coastal Estate in Nova Scotia [Canada] – Published in Destination I Do Magazine

This stunning coastal French Chateau “Harbour Mist” on the maritime province of Nova Scotia, Canada was the inspiration for this wedding design with pretty French details and colors that mimic’d the estate’s architecture. The home’s gray cedar shingles, the coastline’s bluish-grey stone that has been smoothed by years of the tide washing over it, and mussel and clam shells found along the shoreline, all determined the color palette for this wedding. To compliment the smoky blues and grays, the bride wore an appliquéd blush Monique Lhuillier wedding gown and blush Jimmy Choo heels. Her art deco diamond ring from Walton’s Antique Jewelry looked lovely placed in a vintage ring box with gold fleur de lis on the lid. Bridesmaids wore a smokey blue Watters dress with blush underlay. Long flowing strands of hand-dyed ribbon by Cocoon Silk Ribbon were tied around the bouquets to catch the ocean breezes.

Weathered wood guest tables sprinkled the plush green lawn and boasted gathered floral centerpieces by Thorne & Thistle, including native blooms, such as white lilac and Canada Mayflower, along with blush pink peonies, roses and foraged greenery. Guests were mezmerized with 180 degree views of the Atlantic Ocean on one side and a view of the estate, orchard and hillside on the other. Calligraphy place cards by Gracefully Made Art were tucked into blue mussel shells at each guest’s seat. The custom wedding invitation, calligraphy and illustration of the estate were all created by Anna Lora Whitley of Silt & Pine. The Bride and Groom chose to hand write their vows in a gray velvet Vow book by Elmo Paper Stories. Maple syrup in a bottle shaped like the maple leaf, also seen on the Canadian flag, were parting gifts for guests and used the next morning at a brunch given by the groom’s family for out-of-town guests. It was the loveliest of days captured on film.

Emily & Seth’s Temple & Grand Bohemian Wedding, Birmingham AL [Published in Carats & Cake]

We couldn’t have ordered more perfect fall weather for Emily and Seth’s early November nuptials in Mountain Brook, Alabama. The day began with the bride and groom surrounded by their wedding party getting ready at her parents’ home. With her Mom and Dad overlooking from the balcony, Seth stood in the back yard and had his First Look of Emily in her blush Mira Zwellinger gown.

Forgive me for the lengthy blog post and amount of images, but this day had so many memorable moments with stunningly beautiful details designed by the talented team of Mariée Ami Wedding Planning Studio. It was a traditional Jewish ceremony, so Emily and Seth signed the Ketubah before the ceremony and danced the Hora dance at the reception. And, trust me…you don’t want to miss Emily and her dad’s choreographed father-daughter dance. Plus, Seth got up on stage and sang Tom Petty’s “American Girl”. Both had the crowd roaring. Such a fun night!

Emily was the sweetest bride to work with from the planning process all the way through the moment she and Seth departed at the end of their wedding day. She took time amidst all that was going on in HER day to say thank you after so many shots all day long. She had a grateful heart which she made known to her parents and every vendor involved in her wedding.

I’ll let the images tell the rest of this wedding story. You can also see this wedding on Carats & Cake. Mazel Tov Emily and Seth! I wish you the very best. Thank you for inviting me into your life to celebrate and document your perfect day.
