We originally published this wedding almost exactly a year ago. When I came across it today, I just had to repost. It has amazing details and is a terrific example of a fusion wedding!
Esther and Won’s wedding is an elegant affair (photographed beautifully by Sloan Photographers) with a twist. As if their classic detailing wasn’t enough (bird cage veil, white roses, a timeless sheath dress with heavenly train), they also honored their roots with a traditional Korean ceremony, complete with a serious wardrobe change. I love that they were able to seamlessly blend the two cultures – it’s a great example of really making your wedding day represent who you are as a couple…
What a pretty wedding we have for you today! Carissa and Patrick were married at the Ringling Museum, and let’s just say, there was nary a clown car in site. Rather it was an event that lived up to the grandness and elegance of the venue (captured beautifully by Justin DeMutlis Photography), but with the intimacy of a couple who was really enjoying their day.
And the classic detailing! From Patrick’s tux, to the ruffles on Carissa’s train (perfect for dancing), to the simple elegance of their cake, each element matched the grandeur of the space. It looks like it was a truly gorgeous day.
Carissa and Patrick were kind enough to send over a ton of details about…
Happy Friday! The java hasn’t quite kicked in yet, so until it does, take a re-look at this gorgeous wedding in Palm Springs by Beautiful Day Photography.
How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story:
Adam and I were both dating other people and met one night at my friend’s restaurant. We were hooked from that moment. We became each others’ other half…honestly…it’s an incredible feeling to know within minutes that this is the one you want to spend the rest of your life with. I feel like we are twin souls…that we have known each other long before we met.

It’s not every day that you find an engagement shoot that can be classified as totally Modern and totally Vintage, but that’s the case with Monika and Joe’s session from Megan Ann Photography. The stunning couple starts off in the uber-modern Andaz Hotel in San Diego’s Gas Lamp district and look completely at home amongst the vinyl walls, murals and decadent chandeliers.
Then they shift completely away from the Art Deco feel and go for Old Hollywood Glamour at the Santa Fe Train Depot. And, I’ve gotta say, I think they nail both looks (and, on a side note, can I tell you how much I’m pining after Monica’s killer heels?). Their wedding promises to be a blend of both style – we can’t wait to see the photos!

As someone who planned a destination wedding, I can tell you first-hand how much work it can be to make sure all of your guests have rooms that are close to your reception, within their budget and on par with their comfort level. If only we’d have had RoomAtlas!
RoomAtlas basically maps out all of the hotels near a location that you set (in this case I chose Pasadena’s gorgeous Imperial Palace Banquet Hall) and gives you a quick overview of their average room rate. Which is great, but it’s with the extras where RoomAtlas really makes your life easier.

I love that your engagement photos can be all about who you are as a couple. So far this month we’ve had an eclectic camper van shoot, Harry Potter fans, a skateboarding session, a glamorous proposal and a couple up for all sorts of fun. You can really do anything!
Add to it, today’s photo session by the talented BH Photography. Lama and Faisal are an incredibly stylish couple who wanted their engagement photos to reflect that. So, they headed to the Opus Hotel in Montreal for a backdrop of hotels, boutiques and museums. The result looks like something off the pages of a magazine, don’t you think?
There are some weddings where one aspect stands out and calls for all of your attention; for Janet and Michael’s destination wedding, that would be the location. Beautifully photographed by Jules Photography the shots capture the versatility of the Italian countryside – the mountains, lush greenery and sweeping views of the ocean (it doesn’t hurt either that Janet and Michael take absolutely stunning photographs).
Janet worked with the historical elements of their locale (the hotel where they were married is from the 11th century!) creating details that had a classic feel for an overall romantic effect. Be sure to read more about her thoughts and how they chose their location after the photos.
Michael and I…

Jim and I met at the gym. He was a client of mine. I worked there as a personal trainer so he basically paid me to torture him! We worked together about 2 years with no romantic involvement and then lost contact for about another year when he stopped training. We met up by chance and he asked me out, one thing led to another and now here we are today happily ever after!!
What was the theme or design inspiration for your wedding?
I never really thought out a theme to our wedding but knew that I wanted it to have a classic and elegant style. I thought…
