When Darien & Eric vacationed at a small resort on the Oregon coast one 4th of July weekend, Darien never imagined the fireworks the weekend would spark. On their last night there, Eric planned a romantic dinner at the resort's restaurant. The couple sat in front of a large, picturesque window, illuminated be the pinks & oranges of an awe-inspiring sunset. As the restaurant slowly cleared out, the two of them sat, laughing & finishing their champagne.

We love the offbeat & outdoorsy feel of Danielle & Brian's classicly rustic Connecticut wedding! With Danielle working as a nurse in the Navy, stationed in North Carolina & Brian living in Connecticut, the couple spent much of their time in a long-distance relationship. Danielle & Brian purchased a Volkswagen Mini Bus during the course of their long-distance romance so that they could spend more time together as they traveled between states. It only seemed fitting that they incorporated this symbol of their commitment into their wedding celebration.

Jenna & Jared have good friends, good music & a huge crowd to thank for their picture-perfect proposal. The couple planned a trip to Jones Beach with a group of their friends to see a Jason Mraz concert—it was Jenna’s 7th time seeing one of her all-time favorite artists. Without telling anyone else his plan, Jared asked Jenna to stand up during her favorite song, “Lucky” & asked her to marry him in the front row of thousands of people. The crowd went wild, especially when she said “yes” & sealed it with a kiss.

With a passion for rustic elegance & a taste for fresh & organic food, Nikki & Matt whisked away from their home in Texas to share a special destination wedding in Colorado with family & friends. The couple created a day that took advantage of the perfect pastoral setting in a breezy celebration filled with homespun & romantic touches. We especially adore the pops of autumnal orange, farm-fresh cuisine & invitations that alluded to the intimate setting.
