Bohemian Summer Wedding Inspiration

bohemian beach shoot

For those of you in need of some super pretty eye candy to get through the rest of your work day, it doesn’t get better than this dreamy bohemian seaside wedding inspiration! Conceptualized + executed by Jennifer from Jennifer Laura Designs + Paige from Awake Photography, this shoot incorporates so many lovely summer elements (like oyster shells, sequins, feathers + sea glass!) that will leave you day-dreaming of a breezy, waterfront feast with your love!

There are some great ideas throughout for those of you planning a seaside or beach-themed wedding. Personally, I’m a big fan of the mismatched jars filled with flowers + foliage and the bride’s gorgeous fishtail braid!

Cultural San Antonio Garden Wedding: Maya + Craig

Maya + Craig are both creatives by trade – he works in the music industry + she in the arts, so their inspired backgrounds played a major part in the look + feel of their colorful, handmade South Texas garden wedding! They wanted their day to be a representation of both of their personalities, where they come from, and who they are becoming in the next chapter of their lives together. Here’s more from Maya:

It was important to make the longstanding traditions of both our cultures into a contemporary celebration and tradition that we are starting together as a family. Our chuppah was created out of handmade doilies from both of our great-grandmothers and grandmothers which my mom crocheted into a beautiful piece of art. We were so lucky to have our brother-in-law, Akiva, officiate the ceremony; he made it so personal and was able to include traditions from both our cultures and really celebrate our love for each other.

The documentation of the day was also really important to Maya + Craig; they knew we wanted a visual story to tell after the day had passed. And Julia of Our Labor of Love did just that in these beautiful photographs! Congratulations, Maya + Craig — we wish you the best!

There were so so many, but the most memorable moment for me was when Craig surprised me with an a cappella version of "In the Still of the Night" with his groomsmen and dad as back up singers. They were amazing and it was so romantic!

Take a moment to step back during the craze of planning to check in with yourself and make sure you're sticking to what your heart says. We had a few moments when our ideas were getting lost in the planning, and we had to check-in with each other to make sure the day was going to be true to us.

Join The NotWedding Party

The Not Wedding

Have you lovelies heard of The NotWedding? If not, it’s time you have! Complete with dinner and drinks, an emotional ceremony + a dance-party reception, The NotWedding has become a killer alternative to a bridal show. The hand-selected vendors perform their services as they would at a real wedding, and the “wedding guests” get to hear the music, taste the cakes, + smell the flowers… while enjoying a night of great food, dancing + surprises, leaving brides-to-be saying “I want my wedding to be just like that!”

For brides and grooms, the event serves as a source of inspiration, a resource in finding trusted wedding vendors and an emotional reminder to plan for what comes after the wedding: a marriage! For participating wedding vendors, the event exposes their business to new referral sources, while also exposing each vendor to a wealth of inspiration, resources + confidence to take their business to the next level. Pretty rad, right?!

See a snippet of what The NotWedding event is like in the pretty images below…
