10. An Adventurous Destination Wedding in Iceland

The wedding of the couple who met while traveling and fell in love long-distance (she’s from Colorado, he’s from the Netherlands) definitely made our list! We love that the Intimate Lakeside Iceland Wedding location + ceremony totally fit with their adventurous spirits!

9. A Sequined Emerald Gown + Mid-Century Elements

The sparkling sequined emerald dress set this wedding apart from the rest! Well, that and the incredible array of mid-century details! We totally fell for the fun + untraditional vibe of this Mid-Century Glam Desert Wedding.

7. A Glamorous, Modern + California Cool Wedding

This black tie Bohemian Wedding at the Parker Palm Springs was the perfect blend of the California laid-back and modern style, with just a TOUCH of classic old Hollywood flare, and it came in at #7!

 6. A Camping-Inspired Wedding in the Woods

There are so many reasons as to why this Pop-Up Washington Campsite Wedding made our list… From the backless dress, the captures of the couple’s intimate walk through the woods, the ‘maids white dresses, to the ceremony site itself!

5. A Scenic Wedding in the Mountains

This bride’s dress was one of our most pinned wedding dresses (no surprise there!!) and the whole day was filled with absolutely breathtaking views of the snow-capped mountains + verdant forest. We’re majorly crushing on the scenic views + bohemian-inspired details from this Intimate Wedding in the Canadian Mountains. Oh, and don’t miss the film from this one with the most amazing First Look from Hello Tomorrow Wedding Films.

4. A Lush Garden Wedding in Arizona

This DIY wedding in Arizona shows that you can transform just about any venue to fit your style (I mean, they had an Urban Garden Wedding in the middle of the desert!!)

3. A Gorgeous French-Inspired Bohemian Wedding

We completely fell head over heels for this French-Bohemian Backyard Wedding in Utah! Complete with a s’mores bar, a handmade (by the groom!) wedding arch and lacy, white bridesmaid dresses — what’s not to love?

2.  A Rustic + Woodland-Inspired Wedding in Oregon

That sweet image above of the groom singing to his bride before their first look is from this Woodland-Inspired Oregon Tree Farm Wedding – and it was one of our most loved + most pinned images of the entire year! The day was brimming with so many rustic + woodsy details, that we can’t even pick a favorite!!

1. Whitney Port’s Desert Chic Meets Art Deco Wedding

Whitney Port Wedding

It comes as no surprise that Whitney Port + Tim Rosenman’s Wedding is our #1!! With so many whimsical details, her eye for fashion, the floral heels + her custom made high-low lace appliqué dress, we love it all!
