    Colorfully Charmed

     

    It was such a pleasure to see this beautiful shoot. From beginning to end, the sweetest details were all thought through with care and had such a whimsical spirit! All the gorgeous images captured by Hilleary Photography make us smile! The coloring and lighting was almost like a fairytale dream.

     

    The details and planning were brought together by Beautiful Bride Events and were top notch as well. Even Elise Nuckols Art was there to hand paint the Kate McDonald hand painted McLeod gown. And let’s not forget about those amazingly pink and perfect florals! #allthehearteyes!

     

    Please see the full shoot over on Cake and Lace! You definitely don’t want to miss any of the charming details.

    Madelyn Dress

    Our Madelyn dress in Cement Shantung is certainly a favorite and we love the simplicity of the color with her ruffled collar. What we love most about the Madelyn paired next to the Kate McDonald McLeod, is how it still stands out next to that hand painted beauty yet allows the bridal gown to be a statement.

    Our other favorite thing is that she has pockets. Of course.

    Jon Favreau of “Pod Save America” and Emily Black, an account executive at Sunshine Sachs, have tied the knot in a backyard wedding in Maine. Picturesque and serene, this gorgeous wedding had springy pops of color and darling details. And of course, the florals included pink and coral peonies and we are smitten!

    Various Lulakates!

    The best part of this real wedding for us is the beautiful and stunning smiles everyone wore. But we did enjoy seeing our Harper, Cason, and Emily dresses in long Dahlia skirts. Bride Emily had her sister and best friend in sassy stripes for a little variety! Emily said in the original article here, that she realized how big and full the skirt of her gown was and wanted dresses to have a little volume as well. The pleats of our Dahlia skirts give just that.
