We can't get enough of Francine and Jon's modern wedding celebration - brimming with all sorts of glitz and glam. The vibrant purple color palette definitely set the tone for a fabulous and fun affair. Everything from the bouquet and cupcakes, to the shoes and floral arrangements were so chic and complementary of each other.

We love bright, bold, and unique color palettes and encourage our readers to embrace vibrant colors no matter what time of year they're holding their wedding. This wedding incorporated a lot of colors that you wouldn't think go together, when in actuality, they all blend to create a vividly bright and colorful scene. Taking a chance with bold colors often pays off - your celebration will instantly have a great energetic vibe - but make sure you speak to your floral designer or even coordinator before choosing colors that are totally out there.

This wedding, submitted to us by Turn Loose the Art, is so chic, we can't help but love it. All of the details are classic yet modern - we love the bird cage, parasol, and even the bride and groom's mode of transportation! Weddings really are all about the details, and this celebration is no exception.


Katherine Ennis never thought that she would meet her true love wearing a Santa hat in a bar. But there he was, smiling at her from across the room with the festive headpiece flopping over his head. It was at the 12 Bars of Christmas charity bar crawl in New York City's East Village where Katherine and Michael first met in 2007. Although Katherine had woken up that morning feeling tired and reluctant to the idea of going to bars all night long, her friend had eventually convinced her into going anyways.


This seaside photo shoot has such amazing details. Everything from the twine holding the silverware together and the nautical-inspired stationery, to the beyond beautiful florals and the table of reclaimed barn barn blends so perfectly together. Although this particular shoot took place in Maine, any bride can easily imagine a similar tabletop taking place anywhere on the East Coast.


Bedell Cellar's trademark vintage red truck is such a great photo opportunity for couples who have their wedding there. No matter how many photos we see with this red truck, we never fail to love each one!
