Indoor Greenery Wedding Inspiration

Lush, beautiful weddings aren’t exclusively reserved for the outdoors. And for our gorgeous styled feature today, photographed by the talented Ben Q. Photography, the team wanted to bring natural elements to an indoor setting. The ceremony was staged with a climbing vine arbor, complete with potted twigs, sprigs and leaves. Bows + Arrows created a sweetly untamed garden rose bouquet. And the intimate sweetheart table was crowned with a floating wreath made of hops vine. We’re pretty much obsessed. So much inspiration for couples who are planning an indoor celebration to get excited about!

Apple-Vaca-Main

If your idea of the perfect honeymoon or wedding involves an ultra romantic setting, minimal planning and affordable amenities, allow us to introduce you to an exceptional travel provider that’s definitely worth knowing about, Apple Vacations! Couples who plan and book a trip with Apple Vacations will have their travel arrangements taken care of, will be put in touch with an experienced wedding planner who will help coordinate the day of their dreams, and will enjoy great promo-code discounts for groups as small as ten guests! From travel arrangements and legal requirements, to great ways to save (and even a bridal registry!), you can sit back and relax while Apple Vacations takes care of it all! Sounds pretty amazing to us! :)

Today we’re excited to take a little tour of three west coast of Mexico destinations that are popular spots to tie the knot or enjoy a relaxing honeymoon. First up is Los Cabos, where the gulf of California meets the Pacific ocean. Here, azure blue and turquoise waters, rugged cliffs, quiet coves, desert vistas and mountains all come together to create a dreamy backdrop for your special day. Best known for its golden beaches, active nightlife, and luxury resorts featuring top-of-the-line restaurants and spas, as well as golfing and fishing, Los Cabos is also the perfect destination for the honeymoon of your dreams!

Next we have Huatulco, one of Mexico’s most relaxing tourist destinations. With 22-miles of picturesque beaches, relax on the sand or enjoy the region’s abundant marine life during a scuba diving or snorkeling excursion. And environmentally-conscious couples can have their dream green wedding in Huatulco, at the hemisphere’s first eco-tourism resort. Love that!

Last but not least is Vallarta-Nayarit, a destination where you’ll find an exotic blend of vibrant culture, Mexican flavor, and nature at her best. Exchange “I do’s” as the sun sets over the pacific ocean or enjoy watersports, nightlife, and beach combing during your first trip as a married couple! And Vallarta-Nayarit is home to Banderas Bay, where you can enjoy the thrill of whales up close from December through April. That would be so cool! :)

Dreamy California Ranch Wedding: Lauren + Blake

ranch wedding

There’s a good reason why ranch weddings are so darn popular. It doesn’t get much better than the dreamy, relaxed feel of the setting or that sense of rustic charm us city dwellers perpetually crave . Plus, you usually get to take a virtually untouched environment and make it all your own. Lauren + Blake’s situation was exactly that and they did an amazing job of turning their blank-slate-of-a-venue into a beautiful, romantic place to say their I Do’s! While we love it all, we’re particularly smitten with the gorgeous florals by Breier and Bride – so crazy romantic! – and the classic gray + cream color palette. Here’s a bit more about the day from Lauren:

We wanted our wedding to be outdoors, relaxed and natural. We also wanted our guests to feel “free to be you” and comfortable throughout the day. They took the time from their lives to celebrate us, so we wanted to be sure we thanked each person for being with us on our wedding day. Blake and I envisioned every person feeling wanted, loved, accepted, and involved. With close to 180 people in attendance we were able to make everyone feel at home. It was important to us that our wedding felt intimate and personal.

Thanks so much to Bryan Miller for the beautiful photography + congrats to L + B on an incredible day!

One of my favorite pieces of decor was our archway. My mom and I stumbled upon the archway in a small flower shop in Los Gatos, CA. Two days later I was shocked and touched to see in our front yard as an engagement present from my parents. They’re pretty rad.

Listening to the speeches/toasts while sitting at our sweetheart table. It was incredibly touching for both Blake and I. Being able to take in the beauty of our day and the faces of our loved ones...little compares.

  • Pick a few things that mean the most to you and focus on those.
  • Ask for help! And don’t feel bad doing it! :)
  • Make decisions that feel right and try not to second guess yourself; it’ll add unnecessary stress and confusion!
  • Think outside the box, weddings don’t have to break the bank.
  • Take deep breaths along the way. Rest knowing it will all come together, it always does. Besides, all you’re going to truly care about is being wed to the love of your life.
