Ashley & Ryan’s Denver Wedding – CHARD Photography

, , , , , , , ,

Gorgeous mountain backdrops, beautiful greenery, stunning church ceremony and a classy skyscraper reception! Ashley and Ryan’s destination wedding in Denver, Colorado had a little bit of everything and all the makings of a memorable and unique destination celebration. When selecting the setting for their late Summer nuptials, Ashley and Ryan chose a place near and dear to the groom and the city where he grew up. Though this was a destination wedding for the Los Angeles based couple, getting married in the church that Ryan grew up in was a natural choice. When it came time to plan their reception, the stunning view of the Grand Hyatt’s Capitol Peak ballroom on one of the top levels their Denver high-rise stole their hearts. The floor to ceiling windows running around three sides of the room boasts one of the best views of the city skyline that came alive as the sun set.

I could gush over Denver endlessly, but even more stunning were Ashley and Ryan and all the special touches they put into their wedding day. Their beautiful purple and silver color palette was elegant and classy. One of my favorite details included the hand-carved and hand-painted hummingbird cake topper that the groom’s family crafted for their wedding cake. Absolutely gorgeous! Rich from CHARD Photography did an incredible job of capturing every lovely detail of Ashley and Ryan’s special day. It’s so evident just how much fun they were having and how much they truly soaked in every moment celebrating with friends and family. I had such a blast being a part of their wedding day!

Katie & Jesse’s Laguna Cliffside Wedding – Stone Crandall Photography

, , , , , , , , , , ,

Katie & Jesse’s Laguna cliffside wedding took place in a spot near and dear to the bride. This stunning property has been in the bride’s family since the 1940s when her grandfather bought this small cottage on the cliffside with a stunning view of Laguna Beach’s beautiful coves. With a stairway straight down to the beach from the backyard, the property was the perfect spot to say “I do” and spend the evening celebrating with their friends and family. Besides the gorgeous navy and coral color palette and bold patterns, one of my favorite details of this wedding was how Katie, a teacher of middle school special needs students, chose to incorporate artwork that her students made showing what they felt it meant to love someone! Such a special touch! Thank you for capturing every yummy detail of this special wedding Stone Crandall Photography!

Carly & Adam’s Malibu Wedding – Mike Arick Photography

From the very beginning of the planning process, I fell in love with Carly & Adam’s vision for a modern and fun estate-style wedding in Malibu with gorgeous pops of yellow and grey. The contemporary color palette, elegant small plate style dinner and breathtaking views of Malibu made for a day that no guest will easily forget! Surrounded by friends and family, Carly & Adam said “I do” on an outdoor terrace with a dreamy backdrop of the Malibu coastline. After dinner guests moved back to the same terrace where lighting and lounge furniture had transformed the space into a “rooftop club feel.” They partied and danced the night away! Mike Arick Photography did an amazing job capturing this stunning couple on their most special day!

Courtney & Nick’s English Countryside Destination Wedding – Ross Talling Photography

Courtney & Nick’s Destination Wedding in the English Countryside was a beyond incredible experience! We’re so glad we got to be a part of it and so excited to share some of the images from their fabulous marque wedding today on Infinitely Inspired! Nick, a UK native, met Courtney a sweet and down to earth Orange County girl and though they both live in California now, their hearts were set on going back to Nick’s hometown to host their wedding celebration at his parent’s holiday cottages in Cornwall, England. Picture the perfect English countryside with rolling hills, lots of quaint stone cottages, a gorgeous white marquee/tent and of course a stunning couple.

Their ceremony took place in a beautiful grass lawn and guests partied the night away at their tented reception enjoying a traditional English Wedding Breakfast and later a more casual Hog Roast dinner and lots of yummy sides! I loved their pretty mint and grey color palette and the fun details like the chevron aisle runner they flew over from the US. Ross Talling Photography did an incredible job of capturing all of the fun of Courtney & Nick’s celebration which stretched late into the night! When you’re having that much fun, why stop?!

Adam & Katie’s Nautical Wedding – Mike Arick Photography

From the moment I met this sweet couple I just knew I had to be a part of their wedding! Katie and Adam are so kind and full of life and love for each other. After living in New York for several years and just moving back to California, Katie and Adam were eager to enjoy a true West Coast celebration. Their nautical nuptials were a perfect fit for the Redondo Beach Historic Library. Guests enjoyed the ceremony & cocktails overlooking the ocean then moved inside to enjoy the 1920s decor of the Library for dinner and dancing. Mike Arick Photography did an amazing job of capturing every stunning, perfect, nautical detail!

GORGEOUS Laguna Beach Wedding – Gavin Wade Photography

When I first met Jill & Rory I just knew I had to be a part of their special day! They both have such a positive and upbeat energy that is truly infectious. The theme of their Laguna Beach nuptials centered around their own personal journey of love and experience with a long distance relationship that spanned continents – Rory is from the UK and Jill is from sunny Southern California. Though long distance relationships can be difficult, Jill & Rory knew that this was a unique part of their journey and chose to honor this with travel-themed details throughout their wedding like luggage tag favors, table names of cities special to them, and cute luggage and travel props. They said “I Do” in a beach ceremony on the most stunning Spring day and danced the night away at a colorful garden reception, ending the night in a shower of candy sprinkles thrown by guests as they ran to catch their limo. The talented Gavin Wade Photography team did such an amazing job capturing every special little detail!

We absolutely love private estate weddings especially when they’re set in a location as beautiful as Santa Ynez and when we get to work with the cutest couple ever! Monica and Seamus’s gorgeous wedding took place at the bride’s parents home in Santa Ynez overlooking vineyards and rolling hills. It just doesn’t get much better than watching the sun set from a stunning reception tent while enjoying live music. I adore these images from Equals D Photography and how Ryan captured the excitement of the day so well! Enjoy!

Exposed Cake

Who knew that the inside of a cake could look so beautiful? This new trend appeals to those who are going for rustic and country style weddings. It often makes people feel a bit nostalgic because it looks similar to homemade cakes.

Endless Lace

Parisian Pastry of Romance 

Originating from France, this whimsical French Croquembouche cake has rapidly become a popular alternative for wedding cakes. It was once believed if the newlyweds could kiss over the top of a towering Croquembouche without knocking it over, they would enjoy a prosperous life together.

Gold Flaking

Looking for a subtle way to add some sparkle and shine to your cake without going overboard? Get ready to fall in love with this simple gold flaking look. For a more rustic look, have your cake decorator use the flakes sparingly. For a glamorous look have the flakes heavily added to the rims of the cake or splashed across the entire surface of the frosting.

All Things Green

While flowers have been added to cakes for more years than we can count, gorgeous greenery such as succulents, moss and olive branch leaves are making their debut and adding a whole new twist to cake decorating lending to a beautiful and organic feel. This unique style is so natural yet breathtaking.

Imperfect Cake

Sometimes perfect and polished isn’t always best. This new frosting technique allows wedding cakes to look slightly undone and rustic yet elegant and organic. We can’t get enough of this trend!
