The royal wedding is upon us! For all of you watching from home (at a nice early hour - hopefully with a mimosa in hand!) we hope you have a fabulous time. To commemorate the occasion, we thought it would be appropriate to share some images from one of our favorite weddings this past summer - Alicia and Shez's Cape Cod soiree. Alicia and Shez are both Londoners and though their celebration took place in the States, they definitely managed to evoke a certain sense of English style (including some very delicious traditional English trifle).

Cappy Hotchkiss is truly talented when it comes to capturing details that attest to the extraordinary beauty of a wedding. This Tribeca wedding is really no exception - we love the soft, pretty florals, the bride's amazing flowing gown, and of course, the fabulous stationery. Gorgeous details like these are even more stunning against an urban background. Amazing!

Sasha and Sam's August wedding in Asticou, Maine certainly made use of bright, vibrant, and totally fun colors - many of them represented within the over 100 dahlias at the event. We love when couples who choose to have a seaside wedding go with bold colors, as the beauty of the ocean just seems to magnify the gorgeousness. Absolutely stunning!

Gone are the days in which a standard wedding cake was the only way to please your guests' sweet tooth at your wedding. Today, there are lots of different options when it comes to wedding day desserts - and only a fraction of them involve fondant.

It's spring (finally!) and we just have to celebrate with a wedding full of poppy and punchy colors. Tena and Simon made use of vibrant teal and lime green to make their wedding truly stand out. We love this color scheme for spring time - but summer or even fall (with slight variations, perhaps) would work, as well.

Bridemaids' photos are such a good opportunity to create a fun, memorable image. The backdrop of the sunflower-dotted field behind these ladies is enough to add a splash of whimsy and cheer to this photo.
