I do love a good outdoor wedding and this one is pretty special. This is a day of details, many of them DIY and my personal favourite is the ‘something blue’ - it’s one of those quirks that I wish I’d thought of for our day so the best I can do is share it in case you are in need of a quirky ‘something blue’.
Captured by Karen Feder Photography she sums up Lindsay and Michael’s wedding day,
Perfect weather, perfect company and perfect day. A celebration planned in the private meadow of Michael’s parents was the perfect backdrop for the May wedding. So many DIY details made the day perfect ranging from the fun facts on the quaint town of Red Wing to the apple jelly that Lindsay and her mother made as favours for the guests to the doors that she made for the aisle entrance. The 9 nieces and nephews that roamed the meadow rung bells just before Lindsay walked down the aisle and as she and Michael were announced husband and wife. Their late night snack of sliders from White Castle (Michael’s favourite!) arrived in the middle of drinks and dancing and the couple ran through an array of sparklers as they left for the evening.
This is the perfect way to finish the week; a wedding bursting with personal style and pretty. On a personal note this is exactly the kind of wedding I want to be perving on 4 weeks before my own big day; it’s the perfect way of kick-starting the final surge to create ultimate wedding pretty.
Anyway, I digress…
Today’s wedding is shot by Daniel Balboa and Dabiel gives us his account of the day,
Rocky Stone and Nicole Bryant are two beautiful people! Their helpful, loving nature made this day so easy and special. The vintage chic theme created a very relaxed atmosphere for the guests and vendors to enjoy the day.
The fun story behind their day was the rain. It poured overnight and anything outside the last minute tents were wet. The coordinator and photographer, along with the owners of the property, worked together to dry everything off before the guests arrived.
The bride arrived just as the clouds parted and patches of blue skies appeared. Although a little chilly, the rain was held back until part way through the reception. The skys released the rain, thunder and lighting while the bride’s father blessed the newly weds with a heartfelt toast. The pie and dessert table were a small reflection of this unique couple’s desire to be real and authentic with who they are. It was a joy and privelage to capture their amazing day and beautiful love!
This outdoor wedding is the perfect start to a Monday morning; full of colour, smiles and emotion.
The photo of the groom setting eyes on his bride as she walks towards him makes my heart melt a little bit…HTB best get practising his loving gaze!

I love it when a wedding drops into my inbox and makes me squeal with delight. This wedding from Diana Deaver Photography did just that.
The lace, the outdoor ceremony, the pastel tones, the flowers and the ‘you may now kiss your bride’ kiss are all wonderfully brilliant. This is a wedding that will put a big smile on your face this Wednesday morning.
After the madness of the Jubilee weekend, I have a sweet and classic wedding from Michigan in the USA. Captured by McDonald Photography, Deborah and Harry’s day is set a dream outdoor location.
It is also the first time I have featured a ‘First Look’ as part of a wedding - I know of a few friends who want to incorporate one into their day and so I’m really pleased to share an idea on how to do it.
Right, enjoy the details and happiness of this day.
If you’re suffering from Monday morning blues then hopefully this wedding all the way from Sedona, Arizona in the USA will cheer you up.
Shot by Robert Godridge Photography, it is full of timeless style and soft pink hues. According to Robert, Lindsay and Cesar were, ‘the least stressed bride and groom on their wedding day we have had ever. Not even could the poring down rain a couple hours before the ceremony put a damper on their wedding day spirits.’
Using hay bales as seating is the perfect way to capture the rustic look on your wedding day.

I know that you shouldn’t have favourites but I have to confess that this intimate wedding from Mercedes Morgan Photography is one of them. Small budget, DIY, small guest list but great big heartfelt emotion captured in every single shot…and at the end of the day, that is the best bit.
Catalina made her own button bouquet (which I love), birdcage veil, Rueben’s buttonhole and cord which they braided.
These images will make you realise just what your wedding day is all about….enjoy.
I have a little bit of orchard heaven for you today from Vendla Stockdale Photography. If you’re like me and always dreamed of a vineyard/orchard wedding then you will love the backdrop to every single shot.
Diana and Brian were married last summer in the North Fork Valley. I love this description of the day from Vendla, ‘Delicious Orchards where the wedding was held was a truly beautiful venue, with views of the West Elk mountains in the distance and the smell of apples on the trees. The scenery is spectacular and dramatic with the summer storm clouds gathering in the distance. The wedding was small, close friends and family and dinner was served between the lines of trees in the orchard. Brian being an avid fisherman had spent the past two days catching trout to be served for dinner, it was delicious along with local organic salad greens and local wines. While the adults celebrated the children ran among the apple trees collecting apples for their sacks.’
This wedding submitted by Chi Photography is an outdoor delight full of personality. As soon as I saw the vintage engagement ring I was hooked.
Having your guests toast marshmallows over an open fire is a brilliant idea and one I may just have to steal!
