Grab a tissue! This groom had to sell his guitar to afford to move across the world to be with his wife as they start their life in New Orleans. Little did he know, what she had something incredibly special planned for him on their wedding day. Cue those tears, right? How sweet (and in a sweet dress, too!).

8. This Blush Dior Wedding Dress

When we think of a bridal moment…we think of this; the texture, the color, the volume, THE SMILES! If we had this dress on, we’d never take it off.

7. This Perfectly Pink Floral Installation

Floral installations were all the rage in 2019, and boy are we glad they were! From full, floral arches to cascading baby’s breath, we kept our eyes our for the coolest installs of the year. Clearly, pink was a front runner :)

5. This Fiesta Cake

These fiesta-themed sweet treats have been ridiculously double-tapped, and we’re not surprised at all. The textures on these frosting cacti and colors in the cake make our eyes light up! We’ll see more of you + your sweet tooth in 2020!

I can show you the world…and a six-tiered wedding cake that smashed the box-office. This Aladdin-themed wedding cake definitely got our attention this year. We loved seeing vendors explore their creativity + be inspired by all of the amazing remakes from Hollywood this past year.

3. The Grazing Table of our Dreams

grazing table: Savour & Graze

2019 moved from the cheese plates + passed hors d’oeuvres, and introduced us to some amazing spreads! It was all about grazing tables! We’re talking an epic abundance of food meant for just grazing. We saw so many fun displays in 2019, like beautifully styled fresh fruits, veggies, breads, dips, sweets and even sushi!

2. These Mismatched Velvet Maids

dresses: Jenny Yoo Collection

Maybe it’s the big change in season – but there’s something about fall weddings that always captivates us. You loved fall wedding fashion in 2019 – specifically this totally chic bridesmaid lineup from Jenny Yoo. It’s all about texture, structure + flirty styles in THE MOST swoon-worthy colors.

1. This Impressionist Masterpiece

cake: Buttercream Bakery

That’s truly a work of art! You loved this impressionist art-inspired wedding cake…and so did we! This 2019 cake trend consistently offered up gorgeous, bold coloring and creative designs that were *almost* too good to eat.
