Small Rose Garden Wedding with Mansion Reception

Categories Real Weddings

Dimitra and Chris met each other in college–while on a swimming scholarship. Dimitra is from South Africa but her family originates from Greece. Surrounded by their closest family and friends, their intimate and elegant wedding was held in the rose garden at Loose Park in Kansas City, MO. This sweet wedding reflected not only the immense love that Dimitra and Chris have for each other but for small beautiful details, too. Garden and park weddings are amazing summer venues. We simply adore the effusion of pink roses in the garden, Dimitra’s oversized bouquet, red accents, DIY photo box, as well as the elegant tablescape and artful wedding cake. Enjoy.

Romantic Mountaintop Wedding With Teal Accents

Categories Real Weddings + Wedding Stationery

There is so much pretty in Shahida and Cameron’s wedding–it’s hard to know where to begin. From the exquisite mountaintop location to the teal colored accents, we are in love with this Ojai, California wedding in the Los Padres National Forest of Ventura County. This stunning locale is actually the home of Cameron’s grandmother. So, treating their guests to panoramic views and overlooking Lake Casitas, they had a beautiful outdoor ceremony and wedding reception. Shahida looked amazing in her lace beaded dress as did her maids in teal bridesmaid dresses. A few of our fave highlights include traditional elements from Shahida’s Indian heritage, their DIY ring holder {alternative to the ring box} and their cascading pastel blooms. And, of course, we love love their wedding favor boxes they personalized at MagnetStreet! Thanks so much to Joanne Leung Photography for sharing this lovely wedding and location with us. Enjoy!

Wedding Style: Romantic Elegance
Wedding Colors: Ivory, Peach, Teal & Pink

Shahida DIY’d their ring holder from carving out a heart-shaped hole in the middle of a journal book. Such a clever keepsake!
