Chic Orchard Wedding and Barn Reception

Categories Real Weddings

Beautifully captured by our friends at Cathy and David Photographers, we’re sharing Katie and Keth’s lovely wedding at the County Line Orchard in Hobart, Indiana. From the picturesque outdoor ceremony to the romantic red barn reception, guests were greeted by handcrafted touches throughout the day–including the diy wooden signs made by the groom! Rustic-chic in every way, some of our fave details include the gray and pink color scheme, the tractor that pulled guests to the ceremony site, the Star Wars cake topper {so cute!}, and the surprise song that Keth sang and played on his guitar to Katie at the reception sigh!}. Oh, not to mention their unique guest book idea–a wine rack full of empty bottles that were marked with a future date. Guests were encouraged to write messages and put them inside a bottle. At night’s end, the bottles were corked with the messages inside–with the intention that Katie and Keth read them each anniversary hereafter. So clever! Enjoy this beautiful rendering of their wedding day story!

Hello, “Color Monday!” We’re happy to celebrate you with a neutral palette and a pop of sunshine. Sleek and sophisticated, gray is an all-time favorite wedding neutral and when combined with yellow feels soft and approachable. Spring or summer, this refreshing medley is a perfect choice for any simple, modern wedding. What do you think… perhaps an industrial-style wedding that takes place in a quaint loft or foundry venue? Of course, there would have to be an adorable flower girl in yellow tulle and the fresh scent of lemons from the fruit centerpieces at every table–drifting throughout the space. Sounds invigorating! Tell us, what’s your style and wedding colors?

Welcome to “Behind the Design!” Today we’re getting the inside scoop from graphic designer, Megan, and curator of Modern Heartthrob, one of MagnetStreet’s newest {and trendiest!} Save the Date designs.

“This Save the Date design was inspired by simple, bold typography brought together by a minimalist frame. Clean and simple art elements sit on top of a fun and playful photo–being intentional with the idea that the art elements may interfere with some of the photo. It’s effortless, fun, and flirtatious. This design can easily be transformed to any season, any theme and for any couple.”

Modern, Multi-Cultural Beach Wedding

Categories Real Weddings + Wedding Stationery

Joyful, touching, modern, gorgeous, fun, colorful… so many ways to describe Emilia and Christian’s coral and silver beach club ceremony and reception at the Ritz-Carlton in Sarasota, FL. With trolleys for transport, the wedding party rode worry-free to the Beach Club lawn where they had a traditional Christian ceremony–adorned with Japanese and Persian touches to honor Emilia’s heritage. From the ceremony, it was cocktails and sushi on the Sunset Terrace and then back to the main hotel to dance the night away. There’s joy on every face and it’s our pleasure to feature this beautiful beach wedding captured by Limelight Photography. Enjoy.

Best part of the whole wedding day…
The best part of our wedding day was when we got 10 minutes to sit with each other in between the ceremony and cocktail hour as a married couple enjoying some sushi, hors d’oeuvres, and champagne together before seeing everyone during cocktail hour.

About your dress…
I absolutely love my dress that I bought from The Gown Gallery in Kansas City, MO. It is a simple and chic chiffon dress from the Romona Keveza Collection that was perfect for our beach wedding! My shoes were from Badgley Mischka and the design highlighted my dress. Our gorgeous flowers were from Botanica International Design Studio, who I received the pleasure of both meeting the owner Ian Prosser and working with the Creative Director Zoë Gallina.

Nicole Kaney, Wedding Planner
Our wedding planner, Nicole Kaney and her team, were simply the best you could ask for in planning the perfect wedding! Nicole not only helped us decide on so many important factors for our wedding, but she also communicated everything we were hoping for in a wedding to each and every one of our vendors. We want to express our endless thanks to Kathryn Schanuel, the Director of Meetings and Special Events at the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota, for working with both Nicole and several others in organizing an absolutely amazing wedding day experience.

We also cannot even begin to express how much we loved each an every one of our flowers that were impeccably designed and arranged by Botanica International Design Studio. Working with Zoë Gallina in all our arrangements was an absolute treat!

We also want to thank our wonderful videographer Maureen Taylor from VHVIDEO for capturing every memorable moment. She does fantastic work and is so incredibly sweet and adorable at the same time!
