The Lodge at Sonoma {Carly + Michael}

You’re absolutely going to love this California wedding. Carly and Michael traveled from Santa Monica to Sonoma to wed at The Lodge at Sonoma. This wedding is totally outdoorsy, wonderfully rustic, tremendously elegant and truly memorable.

Cathy Stancil Photography captured all the glorious details and commented, “They were the sweetest couple. They both had a great sense of humor and were a lot of fun to work with. Michael made sure Carly had a smile on her face the whole day.”

Monmouth Hills Club Wedding {Jennifer + Brian}

We love green, so we love this New Jersey wedding captured by Vanessa Joy Photography.

The lovely couple wed on St. Patrick’s Day at St. Mary’s Church, followed by their reception at Monmouth Hills Club in New Jersey, United States.

The couple chose green as their main wedding colour and a Celtic/outdoorsy theme. Jennifer explains, “My dad emigrated from Ireland in his mid twenties and so the Irish heritage has played a big influence in my life and is part of who I am. Our theme was part Irish and part nature and green was our predominant colour.

Brian works outdoors and has done so his whole life. He loves the outdoors as do I. Nature was a big influence on our theme. Brian and I both like a more ‘outdoorsy’ natural feel so the colours we chose reflected that of nature.

The Celtic theme was hinted at throughout the day, as was the nature theme by using more earthy rustic materials, and Celtic knot work on some things. We hired a bag piper for the church ceremony as well.”

“We put together all the menu cards, drink cards, some bouquets and table names ourselves. We went to the venue the day before and did some of our own decorating. We made all the favors for the hotel guests ourselves,” says Jennifer.
