The Red House Wedding {Jenna + Jason}

Oh yes, we’re definitely fans of this Tennessee wedding.

The groom is a talented singer in the band ‘Reform the Resistance’ and first set eyes on Jenna whilst working a side job as a barista. He managed to muster up the courage to ask her out and shortly after the pair became smitten.

The adorable couple chose to wed in a small, intimate wedding at The Red House in Franklin, Tennessee, United States. The venue choice was certainly fitting, given that both Jason and Jenna love music. They love music so much that it became the theme for their wedding. The Red House venue fit the theme wonderfully because the walls are adorned with gold records and a vast collection of rock-n-roll memorabilia.

We just love this couple, the unique venue, and the brides amazing wedding dress. Her dress was meticulously designed by her insanely gifted mother, which even incorporated vintage lingerie into the dress.

King Valley Golf Course Wedding {Shauna + Rob}

This wedding looks wildly entertaining, with its fierce blue/green/white colour palette and all those kilts.

Shauna and Rob wed in Rob’s parents’ backyard in a tented ceremony. Guests parked 3km away at the reception site, King Valley Golf Course, and were shuttled to the ceremony site where they enjoyed cocktails and refreshments, including Pimm’s Cup. “We wanted our day to have a balance of simple elegance and relaxed charm,” says Shauna.

“A gift to my bridesmaids included satin robes of the peridot colour.”

The colour combination was inspired by a birthday gift. Shauna explains, “The inspiration for our day came from a sapphire ring Rob had bought for my birthday in our second year of university. I had always imagined that it would be my ‘something blue’ on our wedding day.

Over the years, (nearly 8 years since that birthday) the ring has sadly been misplaced, but I still love this bold shade of blue and still wanted it to be my ‘something blue’ on our wedding day. I even dyed my ivory satin wedding shoes to the [shade of] blue.

The gemstones we chose were Sapphire and Peridot. [Peridot is an] August stone, and the month of our wedding.

Hailey, at Final Touches was a great source for bringing our inspiration to a reality. The striking blue was balanced out by softer shades of peridot green, and ivory.”

Shauna and Rob also draw from heritage for their wedding inspiration. “When planning the wedding, Rob and I wanted to celebrate his Scottish heritage and that he and his groomsmen would be wearing kilts. The blue in his Clan’s tartan created a clever mix and proved to provide us with lots of inspiration,” says Shauna.

“French Macarons were the peridot green (chocolate mint) and ivory (sesame flavor) from Ruelo Bakery.”

Centennial Parklands Wedding {Katie + Jack}

We’re yet to meet a hip, vintage, super chic Australian wedding that we didn’t like. This Sydney wedding wowed us with its super simple, yet wonderfully chic vintage aesthetic.

Katie and Jack wed in a beautiful morning ceremony followed by a lunch reception at Centennial Parklands Restaurant in Sydney, Australia.

This wedding is full of so many stellar details – vintage attire, fun centerpieces, and simple elegant wedding cakes. We especially love that the couple chose a festive colour combination. Katie explains, “A wedding is a day of celebration and I wanted the colour scheme to reflect that, so instead of a few muted colours, we chose to incorporate a range of bright colours into our day. We mainly used bright blues, oranges and yellows.”

Katie chose to design her own wedding dress. “I had known for a long while that I wanted a very simple wedding dress, and so I decided to design my dress myself. I was then lucky enough to have my minister’s wife make the dress exactly as I had always envisioned it!”

“We threw a lot of traditions out the window so that our wedding better reflected our personalities. We both have two left feet, so to save ourselves the embarrassment; we didn’t have a first dance. We are both tea drinkers, so we had tea at the cutting of the cake instead of champagne,” says Katie.

“I tried to DIY as many details as possible, and so I created all the invitations, bouquets, orders of service, ribbon wands, menus, table numbers, seating chart, centerpieces, as well as many other details.”

More from the gorgeous bride:

What was your biggest challenge?

“One of the biggest challenges I faced during the planning process was indecisiveness. There is so much beautiful wedding inspiration out there. I almost wanted to plan ten different weddings so I could incorporate all the ideas I adored.”

What was your favorite moment?

“My favourite part of the wedding was definitely the ceremony, where we made our promise to love and cherish one another for our whole lives. It is such a terrifying yet exhilarating thing to do. One of my favourite moments was when our minister cracked a joke at the beginning of the ceremony – it really lightened the mood and reminded us to just relax and enjoy ourselves.”

What’s your advice?

“My advice to brides planning their wedding is to spend less time dreaming and more time doing. It’s a lot of fun to dream up wonderful wedding ideas, but it all goes to waste if there’s no time or energy to make them a reality. Once you find an idea you love, go ahead and make it happen.”

Did you receive help from friends and family?

“We wanted to involve our friends and family as much as possible in our big day. We enlisted the help of friends for our wedding cars, the wedding dress, makeup, flower arranging, music, wedding cars, master of ceremonies. We are so grateful for the generosity of the people around us, who made our day so very personal.”

Congratulations Katie and Jack and thank you for sharing your utterly gorgeous wedding photos captured by Photography By Caspix.
