Not only are Jenny Yoo’s bridesmaid separates beautiful and refreshing, but they’re currently each $10 off during July! We have loved this trend for a while, and are so happy to see some of our own brides embracing it. They’re also super cute for a bridal shower or rehearsal dinner!

We love all weddings – but when it is a friends’ wedding, plus a collaboration of all of your favorite vendors (who are also friends!) we can’t help but fall even more in love!
Steve DePino, the groom, is an incredibly talented photographer. Steve has shot at virtually every wedding venue in Connecticut, so when it came to his own wedding, he and his fiancé Lauren Ann, wanted a venue that was totally unique. Steve was raised and still lives in charming Guilford, Connecticut, so it was important to him that all of the wedding festivities take place there. The couple planned their ceremony at Bishop’s Orchard, which was established in Guilford in 1871 and is a town landmark. When Steve and Lauren Ann were scouting the location, they noticed that there was one clear spot in the apple orchard where a tree had been removed. They decided to use that spot as their ceremony location. They wanted to get married in April, however the apple trees were not yet in bloom. Floral designer extraordinaire, Yumiko Fletcher of Hana Floral Design transformed the tree that sat right behind the ceremony site into a living tree! She and her team hand wired thousands of cherry blossoms to the tree and created the most spectacular backdrop for the ceremony!
The reception took place at The Guilford Marketplace. The Marketplace is situated in the center of town along the historic Guilford Green. This location is also a town landmark that was recently renovated to be a charming, retro market. Steve, Lauren Ann, and their son Luke are regulars, so having the reception there was a no brainer! The atmosphere is hip, laid back, and fun, just like the couple! They even coined their own whimsical hashtag for the wedding: #grocerystorewedding.
Store owner, Beth Chapman, styled the bride and was there on the day of the wedding to dress her. Lauren Ann and Steve got engaged slightly before fall bridal market. When Beth saw the Remmington gown by Hayley Paige walk down the runway, she called Lauren Ann and told her that she had found her gown. Hayley did a huge favor by shipping the gown in for Lauren Ann to try, and sure enough, it was perfection!
The wedding images below by Justin & Mary Marantz are nothing short of epic. The couple is stunningly gorgeous, and you can see their love radiating through the images! We are so happy for you Steve and L.A (and Luke).! And we were honored to have a small part in your big day!

It’s no secret that we love all things preppy, so when our friends Justin & Mary asked us to style their “Walk Through a Wedding” on Nantucket, we of course jumped at the chance! For those of you who missed our last “Walk Through a Wedding” post, Justin and Mary’s seminars are just that – an opportunity for photographers to be walked through all aspects of the bride and groom’s big day while being provided shooting tips. Our job, along with event planner extraordinaire Stacie Shea, is to set the stage with all of the fashion and wedding details so that the photographers have a lot of pretty things to shoot.

This luxury mountain wedding inspired photo shoot was a dream to collaborate on! It not only involved some of the best wedding vendors in the county (see the list below), but it was shot at the most stunning location! Lonesome Valley is a rustic, elegant venue nestled in the blue mountains of Cashiers, North Carolina. The views and ambiance are beyond epic. Owner and stylist, Beth Chapman, felt the only way to match this location was to find an epic gown! And we think that she fit the bill with this unique floral wedding gown by Gustavo Cadile. Coupled with a 3-dimensional floral veil by Sara Gabriel, it oozed Southern charm, which was just perfect for this romantic photo shoot!
