From Honey Honey Photography…  I knew immediately that Jenn & Mike’s wedding was going to be phenomenal when she said she was a wedding planner…and that they were planning on having donuts. And we all know a wedding with donuts is a good wedding. Jenn further described her colors to be red, blue, and white – but not just any red, blue, and white, they were well-curated shades, from a coral-red to a periwinkle-blue to the literal colors on the stunning and unique bridesmaids dresses.

Jenn chose a Monique Lhuillier corset paired with the prettiest full skirt – a match made in heaven. Guests were welcomed with champagne and popsicles on the front yard of a private estate in Palm Springs. The bride and groom exchanged vows and rings under a tree on the front lawn, with a beautiful garland arch that hung so naturally it seemed it was part of the tree. Mirrors were a big inspiration and were used as signs throughout the wedding. The reception was one the highlights – Jenn & Mike’s friends and family were seated at long grand tables with a custom bag with their names and a baguette. Palm trees soaring up high and the warm desert breeze as the perfect ambiance. Not only were the donuts impeccable, so was the cake, with its pink marbling and gold flecks, they were almost too beautiful to eat! The night came and so did the dancing – the perfect way to end their special day.

9 Steps to Take Your Wedding Website to the Next Level

Looking to take your wedding website to the next level?  We’re here for you… and so is the team at Minted. Together we’re counting down a little how-to on making that wedsite POP, so you can tell your guests just when and where the party is.  From sharing your love story to outlining all of the amazing details, here’s a list of nine must-do’s for THE perfect website – awesome features, customizable layouts and seriously stunning designs from Minted included.

DON’T FORGET THE DETAILS

I am a big fan of giving your guests detailed information and pointers on what to expect about the ceremony and reception locations – specifically dress code. I once went to a wedding that had a really rocky ceremony location, followed by a mucky grass recaption. I wish they had mentioned not to wear high heels. People always have questions on the dress code, so some advice beyond “casual attire” is helpful! – Libby

START WITH A THANK YOU

Your guests will be traveling near and far to celebrate your Big Day, so giving them more than one thank you is most definitely a must.  There’s nothing I love more than perusing a friends’ website and landing on a sweet note of gratitude… it makes me feel like a special part of their big moment. – Dawn

OFFER A VARIETY OF LODGING OPTIONS

Offer a variety of options for lodging if you’re having an out-of-town or destination wedding. Yes, this is your wedding and you might be going all out, but your guests might have three other weddings this season and are on a set budget.  We listed low, medium and high price-points from cute little inns to the high end hotel we were staying at.  Also, list how far each hotel is away from the reception site, so your guests can plan their car or taxi ride accordingly to and from. – Melissa

HIGHLIGHT YOUR FAVORITE PLACES

If you’re planning a destination fete (or even if you’re the local inviting a lot of out of towners) offer your guests a to-list of a few of your favorite things in/or around the area! My entire guest list was West Coast and we made sure to share our favorite New England joints – everything from the local gem with the best brew, to where to find the best roast beef sandwich, to which beaches the locals favor. – Michelle

SHARE YOUR LOVE STORY

Share your love story! My favorite part of any wedding website is reading a sweet write-up of how the couple met. And of course, details about the proposal. It’s a fun way for your guests to feel involved right from the get-go and share in the excitement leading up to the big day. – Stephanie

LOGISTICS, LOGISTICS, LOGISTICS

There can never be enough logistical details in my book! I’ve attended so many weddings where there was confusion on where do you meet for the shuttle, what time, does it come again if we miss the first round, etc! Giving your guests as much timing and location information – especially with transportation – helps you and your wedding run smoothly in the long run – Elizabeth

REMEMBER THAT CONTACT INFO

Don’t forget to add contact info for guests who might have extra questions! Consider creating a separate wedding email address and give your maid of honor or best man access to it as well to help with answering any wedding-related questions. – Melissa

MAKE THOSE BRIDAL PARTY INTRODUCTIONS

Save yourself the introductions and give guests an idea of who the Bridal party is! Not only will they have a better understanding of your VIP’s, but you’ll also give your ladies some much deserved attention. – Michelle

SHARE YOUR PHOTOS

Your friends and family LOVE you with all of their hearts… and they want to see more of you! Be sure to add some of those sweet, sweet moments you have captured over the years, including that ah-mazing engagement session you had sooo much fun capturing with your photog. – Dawn

So you know what needs to be included on your Minted website, but did you also know that Minted offers a never-ending lineup of awesome features that will make the entire process easier than picking that color scheme for your bridesmaids?  From customizable layouts to event RSVPs to gift registries, Minted has everything you’ve ever wanted, plus a show-stopping design that will leave all of your guests talking.

A Wedding That Proves ‘Going Green’ Can Be Oh-So-Chic

The phrase ‘going green’ has taken on a new meaning thanks to this pretty party from Kallima Photography. See that greenery? Well, little did you know that Courtney used the exact same ivy from her Mother’s wedding bouquet, making this stunner of a celebration seriously sentimental. Graced with A&P Designs and elegant details, we’ve got it all in The Vault!

Inn

From the Bride… Both Florida natives, Brock and I share a love for the water. When he introduced me to the little slice of heaven that is Boca Grande, it quickly became a special place to us as a couple. Having grown up in different parts of Florida, we loved the idea of a black-tie wedding in a coastal setting. The Gasparilla Inn & Club was the perfect venue — elegant, charming and old Florida at its finest.

Our flowers were an elegant mix of white and ivory hydrangeas, orchids and roses with gold accents throughout the reception. My bouquet was a very special part of our wedding day. Inspired by mother’s bouquet, I knew I wanted cascading flowers and to incorporate the ivy used in her bouquet that my Dad had preserved from their wedding 30 years ago.

I wanted my dress to be one of a kind so what better place to find the perfect dress then New York City. With no certain style or silhouette in mind, I tried on the Victoria gown at Vera Wang and felt as if it was made for me. There was just something so unique, yet timeless about it that I had never seen before. I paired it with a cathedral veil to add to the dramatic effect.

The wedding day was everything we dreamed it would be and more. We wanted our guests to have the time of their lives and feel our appreciation for the influence they had on us. To have all of our favorite people in our favorite place was truly amazing.

Not Your Average Warehouse Wedding

Oh, how I love a couple who thinks outside the box. No surprise, the bride is the owner of an amazing online art gallery and that love of aesthetics perfectly translated to the wedding day. Think mismatched chairs, an asymmetrical ceremony arch, cheeky paper goods, and a warehouse setting with an industrial vibe. Kate Ignatowski photographed and we’re totally obsessed.

Urban Space

From Kate Ignatowski… Tze is the owner and founder of Uprise Art, an online art gallery based in New York City. So I wasn’t surprised at all to see her bring the same creativity and attention to detail to her wedding as she does her business. She especially spent a lot of time personalizing her paper suite, which included “west” and “east” coasters since her and Geoff are from opposite coasts.

The space itself was full of character, from the mismatched ceremony chairs to all the unique nooks and crannies. The asymmetrical ceremony arch full of white flowers and greenery added a softness to the industrial space. And the reception tables were set up to take full advantage of the grand space. Long tables were decorated with white florals, greenery and neutral runners. And Tze took especially great care in the cake toppers, which she hand painted and picked out to be proportional to her and Geoff’s significant height difference!

Upon their entrance, Tze and Geoff entertained their guests with an Argentine tango dance. Tze is a long time dancer and owner of a dance company in NYC, but, after months of practicing, Geoff’s ability delighted everyone! It was a wonderful day and I felt so lucky to be there capturing it all.

Clifftop Views. Windswept Hair. This Engagement Has Everything.

We like to think of ourselves as experts in the engagement session department. I mean, we’ve covered what to wear, where to shoot, and how to get those dreamy, romantic photos we all completely adore. And this e-sesh from Winsome And Wright? It puts all of the above into practice. Go see the full gallery with a trip to The Vault!

From the Bride to be…Matt and I were introduced by his sister-in-law during my senior year in college at a fundraiser. He was (and still is) hilarious, nerdy, and awkward enough to give me the wrong number during our initial phone number exchange. Our first date was at a Halloween party, to where he wore a Slytherin crest on his costume knowing that it was my favorite Harry Potter house. That’s when I knew a magical adventure was in the works.

Over the years, we’ve grown to love nature and have made experiencing it a priority in our lives. We’ve traveled near and far to some of the most enchanting parts of the world and Matt even pulled off an epic proposal in Yosemite National Park! The next stop for us was Big Sur and taking our engagement photos there was only natural.

When we discovered Faith of Winsome of Wright, we were in awe. Her photos were beautiful and her personality was even more so. She was friendly, positive, and helpful right from the beginning. During the session, she made us feel comfortable and knew exactly what she was doing with the camera. We give Winsome and Wright our highest of recommendations.

A Stunning Mountaintop Wedding With a Meaningful Details

After the tragic loss of the bride’s father just months before the wedding, it was this couple’s number one priority to honor his memory on the big day.  They included beautiful moments like a candle lighting at the welcome table and a locket tied around the bridal bouquet. Peony & Plum and CCL Weddings helped make it a day to remember and The Great Romance and FonD Productions captured every bit.

From The Bride…Roy and I met in college and started dating 5 years ago, and it has been a whirlwind of an adventure since! Upon beginning our careers, our professional endeavors took us all over the East Coast – starting in Boston, then to Philadelphia, and now New York City. But when it came time to decide on the location for the wedding, we knew right away that we wanted to get married where our roots were planted and where our hearts collided: California. With general geography out of the way, we began the venue hunt. Roy and I are fortunate to have very similar preferences in style, but with it came the almost-unattainable specificity in the vision of what we wanted. After months of a seemingly endless search, we came to the realization that to materialize that vision and truly reflect us as a couple, we needed a blank-slate where we could customize and build our wedding from the ground-up.

We found that perfect blank slate in Malibu Rocky Oaks. From the moment we stepped onto the venue, we fell in love with its Tuscan architecture and design that exuded elegance. The private estate provided the right amount of intimacy, while the sweeping vineyard landscape painted the perfect romantic atmosphere. The raw setting was all that we could ask for, and enabled us to put in our personal touches to bring everything together.

In keeping with the Tuscan theme, we incorporated olive branches and Italian-inspired greenery throughout our floral décor. We opted for a fairly neutral color scheme consisting of ivory, nude, blush, peach, and pops of gold to tie in all of the details. Our aim was to produce a timeless, romantic, and elegant affair. Luxurious, but in an understated way. In addition to having a private space to celebrate, we also felt strongly about having an outdoor dining area. Building upon the breathtaking views of the mountains and vineyards, the use of bistro lights, crystal chandeliers, and gold candelabras came together to create the perfect al fresco dining experience that we dreamed. The overall theme for the wedding was “Let Everything Be Done in Love” – the phrase by which we choose to live for one another. And we infused these phrases into various elements of the wedding.

One of our key focuses was on catering to our guests and their experience from beginning to the end. Starting with a chauffeured ride into the venue, we welcomed them with tasty refreshment drinks, and surprised them following the ceremony with cold eucalyptus towels and popsicle-infused champagne to cool them on a warm Malibu day. We certainly wanted to account for the diverse sweets palates of our guests, so multiple dessert stations were a must, although the macaron ice cream sandwiches were the biggest hit.

I recall a moment during the reception as Roy and I marveled at the sight of our loved ones enjoying their meals, and we gazed at one another with pure joy in our eyes, the biggest smiles, and overflowing hearts, truly thankful that everything, and most especially that everyone, had come together for our special day…it was a perfect celebration to honor our love and union. The only thing that would have made this day even more perfect was having my father by my side. The wedding was already a roller coaster of emotions for obvious reasons, but it was an especially emotional day for me as I had lost my father just months before the big day. To overcome the anxiety and heartache on the day-of, we found small ways to honor and remember him throughout the wedding. On the welcome table, we laid out rows of candles that our guests could light in his memory. At the ceremony, we reserved a seat with his name and picture, and had an acoustic guitarist to commemorate his love for the guitar. And as I walked down the aisle alongside my brother, I carried a gold locket of his picture around my bouquet.

Losing my father was the single most tragic event of my life, and to marry Roy was the single happiest moment of my life. I consider having these two juxtapose one another as a symbolic representation of life and our matrimony. It is in the toughest times that we vowed to lean on each other, and to breathe new hope and bring laughter when life seems devoid of either. It shows us what we can overcome and endure, as long as we have each other by our side. And it highlights the fragility and ethereal nature of life, but the beauty that can always be found within it. Our wedding was remarkable to us for so many reasons, but it is the discovery of a true ‘soul mate’ within each other that really makes this love extraordinary.

First Anniversaries Call For Lush Bouquets + Sweet Kisses Galore

I believe love stories are to be honored. And love stories that start in high school and continue to grow stronger day by day? Well they deserve full on celebrations and that’s exactly what these two lovebirds did when they hit their one year of marriage mark. Natalie Bray and Simply Elegant Weddings collaborated to create the scene before us and Natalie captured all the sweet love for us to peruse in our Vault as well, leaving us feeling inspired and giddy. What can we say, we love love.

From Natalie Bray… I hope this love story brings you joy. When two souls meet as high school sweethearts and finally marry… it is fantastic! But why stop there. Why not celebrate with a romantic One Year Anniversary session.

That is just what Jenny and Matt did. The inspiration for this session was romantic minimalism. The bride’s elegant dress from Sarah Seven with romantic open back accented her look beautifully. Now, pair that with Catalina Neal’s cascading florals full of greens, white, and oatmeal adding to the romance and the bride shined. Her hair and make-up focused on a more natural aesthetic with romantic pops of light pink and a simple chignon. She looked stunning. Matt sweetly helped get Jenny ready. What a wonderful connection and moment to have your husband help button your gown or put on your shoes. Just lovely!

The couple wanted to say their vows to each other as a way to relive the day and the words they spoke from the heart a year ago. A reminder of their love and commitment. The ceremony site was draped with olive leaves and gorgeous florals. Such a sweet and heartfelt occasion; therefore, we wanted the couple to stand out, but feel as if there was a canopy of nature surrounding them. The Bradford Ranch did just that. The Ranch was also where Jenny and Matt became husband and wife, so this location was perfect to celebrate. As they repeated their vows, smiles lit up their faces and was such a joy to be a witness to.

A refreshing rose water mojito was prepared for them to enjoy afterward.

The colors and concept continue into the tablescape design. With a Silk and Willow hand dyed table runner and florals filled with white ranunculus and peonies.

It was a beautiful way to celebrate such a special anniversary.

From the Bride… Matthew and Asha were married March 19, 2016. Asha has mixed heritage and is half Indian, so the couple decided to fuse traditions and invite guests to a two day celebration in New York City where they reside.The first event was Friday March 18, an Indian Sangeet at Ph-d rooftop lounge at the Dream Downtown. The location was significant to them as three years prior, they had met and were stuck in an elevator in that very hotel! The couple wanted to return to the ‘scene of the crime’ to celebrate with friends and family.

The couple opted for minimal decor – just vibrant petals and colorful votive candles to contrast the sweeping skyline views and amazing lighting at the venue. Guests feasted on Indian food and then the festivities began. Accompanied by a dhol player (traditional Indian drum) the bridal party performed dances choreographed by the bride and her friend (both former dancers, the bride a former Radio City Rockette.) The night ended with a raucous dance party.

The color palette inspiration was shades of rosé and gold. The bride’s dress was Marchesa with intricate crystal and pearl detail on the décolletage. The bridesmaids dresses were sequins in alternating shades, each dress with a unique detail to make it their own. The florals were in the same palette, roses, hydrangeas, vintage yet modern. The bouquets were all studded with crystals for an extra sparkle.The groom opted for a navy blue tux and his groomsmen wore black. The groom loves to wear red socks, so he incorporated touches of red into his custom suit supply tux – embroidery on the shirt and under jacket collar, and lining of the jacket. The bride’s nephews also wore red socks to match the groom during the ceremony.The girls got ready in the glamorous Tiffany suite. The matron of honor (bride’s sister) conducted a ‘burn ceremony’ in which each bridesmaid made a wish for the couple and threw it in the fire.

The ceremony was interfaith, drawing on Christian & Indian traditions, designed by the couple and officiant Lisa Traina. In addition to Christian readings, there was the hindu ‘7 steps’ and a rose ceremony for the bride’s late mother. The rose ceremony was conceived by the bride and a tribute to their shared love of the ballet, and when the ballerina pulls a rose out of her bouquet for her partner. During the ceremony, the bride pulled a rose from her bouquet in honor of her mother.During the reception, the couple continued the themes of ‘old New York’ and travel through their first dance to Frank Sinatra’s ‘Come Fly with Me.’ The dip and groom’s moves surprised guests! The couple and guests dance the night away…

Guests left with a luxury scented candle designed by the bride who works for a global fragrance house. She worked with a perfumer to make a custom scent that reflected Matthew & herself – Indian sandalwood, American Cedarwood, to represent their roots, and a touch of coconut as a nod to their family name. Named Wanderlove, the candle represented two individuals coming together, filled with wanderlust and love.
