Foggy San Francisco Proposal: Kelly + Tyler

San Francisco foggy proposal

We adore dreamy photos as much as the next girl, but there is nothing like a special moment captured on film to really get the emotions flying high. So, when the uber-talented Josh Gruetzmacher told us he that he captured Kelly + Tyler’s ADORABLE proposal on both mediums, well, let’s just say we knew it would be a must-share! In lieu of sharing the couple’s story here, we seriously urge you to watch the video for yourselves! There you’ll hear + see all the details about how Tyler totally threw Kelly off the trail (it’s all pretty hilarious!) to ensure this insanely sweet moment of theirs would be a total surprise…

Dreamy Bohemian Wedding Inspiration

boho bridal inspiration

You just can’t beat the unrivaled ambience created by good bohemian design. The bold colors, the unique textures + patterns, the free-spirited sensibility…seriously, what’s not to love? Styled by Dionne Lewiswith florals by Lila B. Design, today’s editorial blurs the lines of whimsical and sophisticated, and delivers big on inspiration for future brides + grooms who are looking for something unique + fun! We’re swooning over the pretty coral-infused palette, the abundance of lace and crochet details, and every last bohemian-inspired piece of jewelry. Let’s hear a bit more about the setting from Milou + Olin Photography, the talent behind these ultra pretty shots:

This dreamy bohemian shoot is perfection for the couple who wants to make their nature-filled wedding venue completely transformative. Each element – from the luxurious crocheted “getting ready” tent, to the watercolored geometric cake – is unique and special, with a yummy peach and cream color palate. We love the mix of textures – between the lace, crochet, mixed metals, woven, and wood elements it really lets each piece of decor shine. A simple invitation suite packaged with themed pieces is modern and beautiful giving guests just a hint of the wedding’s style.

Laidback Texas Farm Wedding: Alexandria + Joshua

Texas wedding

When a couple is as down to earth as Alexandria + Joshua are, you know their wedding will be one for the books. Hosted at a friend’s family farm, their day was all about celebrating their relationship with each other, as well as honoring their tight-knit community of friends + family. We love that they went for an organic, bohemian vibe with the decor and incorporated lots of interesting textures, patterns, and textiles into the design. If you love succulents, moss, kilim, lace, and twine, seriously guys – this one’s for you!

Alexandria says, We didn’t have a ton of time to plan (we got engaged the day after Christmas and married in March!) so at first we just started picking out things we love. We had discussed having a very simple wedding from the get go, so we just kept telling ourselves that we didn’t need to do everything. We are a couple that really enjoy our intimate friendships and love the way weddings have been done for centuries, so really we wanted to make the focus of the day our relationships. We decided to have the wedding on a Sunday, and have parties on both Friday and Saturday before the wedding because we had a bunch of friends and family traveling from out of town. Most of the decorations were borrowed so we only had to purchase a few things. 

Thanks so much to Bethany Jeffery for the lovely photos + big congrats to the happy couple!

During the ceremony we had blankets set on the ground in front so some of our guests were almost sitting at our feet. It was so intimate.

We have a couple of favorite memories! We would probably say the pronouncement was our favorite moment. Neither of us expected to get so emotional, but when the pastor pronounced us as husband and wife we just lost it! It really was the sweetest moment of the whole day. It was important for us to integrate our beliefs into our wedding. The whole ceremony was centered around the example of how Jesus treated his bride (the church). We washed each other’s feet during the ceremony to show our love and service to one another. Another memorable moment was after the wedding. We had a polaroid camera so that we could have physical memories of the wedding. It's always fun to look at your wedding hashtag, but we have a blast looking through the polaroids and seeing the memories made that night.

Another incredible moment was the lantern release. It was really one of the most beautiful things to watch and we think it was the most fun part of the night for our guests.

Definitely check out their sweet wedding video by Cody Maher!

Hire a wedding planner or elope! Seriously. Every couple we know asks us this question and we tell them all the same thing. No matter what size wedding you're having you need help. We tried to do it all on our own and by the end of the night we were so exhausted. If someone offers, accept the help, and if no one does...hire someone! It's worth it. You can also elope and get a great photographer and videographer. We're from different states, so we still had a party in New Orleans a month after the wedding and showed the video. Everyone loved it!
