Joshua Tree Wedding {Shanti + Mark}

This couple are the ultimate advocates for the saying “less is more” and we love it! Their California wedding was beautifully minimalist, eco-friendly, and rustic.

Kristine Ambrose of Ambrose Wedding Photography documented this charming wedding held at Joshua Tree National Park, California, United States.

The rock climbing couple chose to have a 90% zero waste wedding and reused or recycled most items. Most of this wedding was DIY’ed by friends and family including: bouquet, boutonniere, headpieces, food, and ceremony. They used online invites, no balloons, small dried flowers, carpooling, recycled ware, no presents, online photos and low impact photo printing. Wonderful idea!

Vintage Beach Wedding {Kriss + Aven}

This styled shoot is like one big suspended daydream.

We adore this shoot and the fact that it was put together with one purpose, to provide inspiration for brides who dream of having a vintage beach wedding.

Best Photography captured the day and explained the styling, “We chose a lavender theme and created a vintage look with soft colors of mint and peach, distressed furniture for props and plenty of sweet old fashioned touches. Think milk glass, French lace, distressed wood and antique crystal. My favourite element of the shoot was the groom’s outfit, curated by Brothers and Craft. He wore a vintage newsboy hat, suspenders and a bow-tie with a succulent boutonniere.

For the florals we chose classic and romantic anemones, earthy seeded eucalyptus and of course fresh lavender. The cocktail table was set up on an antique dresser with drawers full of iced clams, sweet goat cheese with figs and lavender infused lemonade cocktails. The sweets table consisted of a gorgeous cake by Rhapsodic Bakery, Vanilla Lavender cupcakes and delicate macaroons. And favors were little jars of lavender infused Florida honey, a heavenly combination for a chic beach wedding. Of course the essential element to any great photo is real love and the fact that our models are a real life couple made the shoot so romantic. Pair true love with a gorgeous Florida sunset and you get a dreamy wedding.”

Waters Edge Estate Wedding {Clare + Luke}

A beautiful wedding location may just be our absolute favourite thing. And Perth, we think you make one heck of a wedding backdrop!

It seems that Clare and Luke agree. They chose to tie the knot in the Scented Gardens, which was followed by their wedding reception at the beautiful Waters Edge Estate in Perth, Australia.

We love the reception venue, the mesmerizing scenery, the bride’s veil, and the blue one-shoulder bridesmaid dresses.
