We love Meagan & Dave’s romantic wedding celebration, set in shades of navy & pink. The day incorporated the couple’s young daughter, into every aspect of the day – she shared in their first dance, sat with them at the sweetheart table & decor included details like three forks that read “I do,” “me too,” “me three.” These sweet sentiments added an extra opportunity to bring family into their beautiful celebration of love.

It was at SUNY Geneseo where Ashley & Matt’s love story began & also the place where they took the next step into their future together. Ashley thought they were taking a daytrip to their alma mater to meet college friends for pizza. When the couple arrived & their friends weren’t there, Ashley gave them a call & they said they were running late. Matt suggested they take a walk through campus while they waited, when he unexpectedly stopped at one of their favorite spots, right in the middle of campus & proposed.

As the birthstone for those born in February, amethyst adds the perfect splash of wedding for white-washed February days. The rich jewel tone looks sweet on bridesmaids’ dresses, as a pop of color in bouquets & centerpieces, or in it’s true form in jewelry – but the options are limitless. The regal hues is the perfect way to transition between the seasons, with it’s softer shades serving as the perfect palette for spring & summer seasons, or incorporate darker shades when the weather is chillier.

We love the dramatic feel of a January wedding that encompasses shades of winter whites. With all of the bridesmaids in white, the day had a feel of Old World elegance, frosty fashion & a modern take on timeless traditions. Gold & brown accents throughout the day's decor added the perfect warm touch to an otherwise icy palette. We especially love the handmade bouquet of silk flowers & brooches, an inspired DIY project & the perfect way to add an extra personal touch to the celebration.
