More Vintage French Wedding Inspiration!

Happy Friday everyone! This past week Jessica Claire offered a workshop to help photographers practice capturing all those beautiful details shots. All those details you work so hard on – you want to make sure your photographer captures them! My friend Summer from Grey Likes Weddings was the stylist for the session and I’m totally loving the “fake wedding” she put together with the help of Megan with MAEMAE Paperie and Lauryl with Lauryl Lane. All photos below by the talented Brandon Kidd. And this is just a sneak peak to it! Check out Grey Likes Weddings in the upcoming days for more details into what went into the styling of the session.

Real Wedding: Kelli + Toby’s Vintage Parisian Wedding

The talented Brooke from Brookelyn Photography sent me this charming wedding to share with you guys today. The ceremony and reception took place at a beautiful location (just wait until you see the photos!) – Treehouse Point/Issaquah, in Washington. From Brooke, The event was a small party of the couple’s family and friends. The wedding colors were light pink and gray. The couple wanted the event to have a simple,vintage, parisian feel. The venue was so beautiful without a lot of decor so the hints of light pink and gray were perfect accents. A lot of the items purchased for the wedding were either local or purchased from Etsy.

How did you two meet? (from Brooke) Toby and Kelli met at a restaurant while Kelli was finishing her senior year at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. she was a server and he was working in the kitchen. Their first date was camping and a Bjork concert at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado!

J. Mendel Dresses

Ever since I saw that gorgeous dress Kate Walsh wore to the Emmy’s last Sunday, I had to know more about the designer – J. Mendel. And, wow, check out these beautiful dresses from the Spring 2010 Collection. So utterly romantic. I think any of these would make a beautiful wedding dress – the yellow or peach could be a fun rehearsal dinner dress :)
