Real Wedding: Laura + Chris | VanLandingham Estate | Charlotte, NC

We can’t decide what we love most about Laura and Chris’s wedding: Laura’s jaw-dropping two-piece gown; the captivating grounds of The VanLandingham Estate; the four-tiered cake dripping with hand-crafted gumpaste peonies; or, that the couple’s first dance song was to “Boogie Shoes” by KC & The Sunshine Band.

This former Carolina Panthers TopCat cheerleader and her hubs nailed the challenge of creating a beautiful and meaningful event, while at the same time keeping it light-hearted and fun! Their wedding was featured in Carolina Bride magazine where they were asked to describe their wedding in three words.  They responded with, “Ethereal, effervescent, and—according to Chris—rowdy.”

Fantasy was on hand to keep Laura, Chris and their guests boogieing well into the evening, while Indigo Photography was there to document their big day.  Get ready for some seriously beautiful imagery.  Loads of love to Indigo Photography for sharing their talent with us.

Published: Shape Magazine Editor, Jaclyn Emerick’s Wedding | Style Me Pretty

We are ushering in the first day of spring by sharing details from  the wedding of Shape magazine’s Fitness Director, Jaclyn Emerick, to her husband, Scott. With a soft color palette in hues of pink, green and gold, this Watercolor, FL soiree was beautifully authentic. We especially love that Jaclyn and Scott chose to incorporate their French bulldog into their big day!

Their  wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty last week where Jaclyn shared, “Our relationship has always been about experiencing new things together, about exploring and adventuring and most importantly having fun. We wanted our wedding to feel that same way.”

And what fun it was! The couple and their guests partied to the sounds of Papa Sol band well into the night. (Literally. Everyone was having so much fun, the couple extended the party to midnight.)

We are in love with the images shared by photographer, Lauren Kinsey. To view the full gallery, check out Style Me Pretty.

Real Wedding: Jessica + Will | The White Room | St. Augustine, FL

Arguably one of the most picturesque cities in the country, St. Augustine, FL exudes historic charm.  Downtown features cobblestone streets, quaint shoppes and intimate cafes. It’s a romance-lover’s dream.

Sweet couple, Jessica and Will, wed downtown at Villa Blanca (hello, gorgeous soaring ceilings!) before letting loose at a raging reception at The White Room.  The two chose The Royals to kickoff a night of non-stop dancing.

We love that the band got a special shout-out on the Alex Michele Photography blog. Alex Michele wrote,  “I can’t say enough about [Jessica and Will’s] incredible vendors especially their live band choice called “The Royals.” These guys were seriously AMAZING! I forgot I was working a wedding, and rather felt like I was at an intimate concert! They had EVERY one on their feet dancing and were so super sweet, too!”

Thanks for the love, Alex Michele, and for sharing these jaw-dropping images from Jessica and Will’s big day!
