If you’ve been dreaming of fairy tale vibes for your big day, look no further than this blush and peach wedding inspiration! Our team here at Junebug Weddings cooked up this gorgeous shoot highlighting a few details we’re currently obsessing over: ground-up ceremony arches, copper details, colored glass, and statement bridal accessories like the ones shown from Emma Katzka. With the help of some of Asheville’s most sought-after vendors including Floressence Flowers, East West Vintage Rentals, and Wildflower Bridal, our vision came to life! As you scroll, you may notice something a little different about these images. We were fortunate to collaborate with a collective of talented photographers for this shoot during The Photo Rehab workshop, who each captured the moments and details in their own way. This shoot, which took place over two days, also features two beautiful real couples, Brooke + Cody and Shana + Hunter, who graciously showed off their love to help bring you a little fairy tale-inspired goodness!

This Talega Golf Club Wedding is Old Hollywood Meets California Cool

October 17, 2017 | colleen

A vintage inspired dress, modern decor, and the perfect getaway car, this Talega Golf Club wedding is effortlessly cool. Cat and Jon’s go with the flow vibe translated into their wedding with a post ceremony drive and a couple of other last minute decisions simply because it just felt right. Between Cat’s artistic background and Kayla Ewing Wedding and Event Planning, the details of everything from the invites to the decor are spot on. Justin Jay and Take Heart Films perfectly captured Cat and Jon’s joy and easy-going nature that was so evident throughout the day.

The Couple: 

Cat and Jon

The Wedding:

Talega Golf Club, San Clemente, California

The dress inspiration came from a deep rooted love of vintage (1920-1930) fashion and the incredible green dress from the film Atonement (if you have ever seen it, you know what I am talking about). That was it. I never looked at anything else that wasn’t charmeuse. You would be surprised how few dresses there are without lace/beading embellishment. I lucked out when the designer (Suzanne Neville herself!) of my dress was visiting a local shop and confirmed she would be able to put two different of her designs together, the bodice from one, and the skirt from another. I watched her as she drew up a sketch of my dress, it was magical.

I wrote and illustrated a children’s book for Jon with all the most special moments/memories of our lives together Dr. Suess style. It was perfect. Jon knows my undying love for converse tennis shoes and made custom, “Just Married” sneakers. I wore them for our entire honeymoon and haven’t really taken them off since.

Being a stickler for aesthetics, I kept the bridesmaids in white and the groomsmen in black. I think we ended up looking so clean together!

Since Jon wanted the big wedding and I originally wanted to elope, we did both, sort of. We went to a mountain top in New Zealand to exchange hand written vows before the wedding. Nobody knew, just us and a photographer. Epic photos of it were made into a sign in book for our wedding. Dawn Thompson did an epic job photographing, as well as Artifact Uprising printing the book!

I ended up added the “just married” lettering to the jacket that morning of. My beauty look evolved throughout the day, I didn’t decide until after the ceremony to put red lip stick (it just felt right!).

There is a photo next to the car at our venue that we both felt was magic. I felt like a 1930’s movie star and Jon felt like James Dean. Needless to say, It was a good moment for us both. Another favorite was when Jon threw me over his shoulder (very Seven Brides for Seven Brothers style) to prevent my silk charmeuse dress from snagging.

We adored having an old muscle car. During our portraits together we took a short (but very fast) drive, played classic rock, and kissed. My hair was basically a hot mess from the wind, but I didn’t care. We felt like old movie/rock stars living “life in the fast lane.” Running off for our portraits allowed us to have a special moment together after the ceremony (such an emotional high!) before seeing everyone. I recommend it!

Effortless Tuscany Destination Wedding at The Lazy Olive

October 16, 2017 | colleen

Holly and Ryan’s destination wedding at The Lazy Olive was a dream come true. Doing a lot of the planning themselves, Holly and Ryan opted for a rustic, laid-back vibe where they could celebrate with their closest family and friends. Choosing The Lazy Olive was an easy choice when it came to checking the boxes off of their list of wedding wants. Federica Cavicchi Photography was there to capture all the sweetness of their love, and the gelato truck during cocktail hour.

The Couple:

Holly and Ryan

The Wedding:

The Lazy Olive, Tuscany, Italy

The most important thing was keeping it simple! Our end goal was a low key, outdoor, intimate celebration with our closest family and friends, oh and good food and wine of course! I think we achieved that.

The internet, blogs, and Instagram have made planning a destination weddings so easy. Most blogs credit suppliers, so we quickly got an idea of the most popular ones, the styles we liked and the ones we didn’t. If you’re happy to do the research yourself, then I’d recommend using the money you would have spent on a wedding planner (they can be pricey!) elsewhere.

We spent a week looking at venues in Tuscany. Nothing compared to The Lazy Olive. As soon as we drove up to the entrance it felt like “us” and ticked all the boxes – rustic, outdoors, and intimate. With friends and, family traveling from all over the world, we were keen to maximize on quality time spent with them, so we hired the venue for 2 weeks.

The most memorable part of the day were the smiles on both of our faces during the ceremony. My cheeks ached by the end – it was definitely the happiest day of our lives.

My mum spent months buying and drying flowers which were used for confetti. Federica captured a photo of her holding baskets full of the stuff wearing a huge smile which I’ll treasure forever. The colours and smell were amazing!

Federica was fantastic, staying to the early hours of the morning to ensure not a moment was missed. I had been lucky enough to meet Federica in Melbourne before the wedding – she was so warm and bubbly that I immediately felt comfortable in her presence and ultimately in front of her lens! Neither Ryan or I like posing for photos, so her natural, journalistic style of photography suited us well.

For the drinks reception we hired an ape car (traditional Italian vehicle) to serve gelato from – a lot of fun and a big hit. We served our favourite flavours; chocolate, lemon and pistachio!

Daniela and Malcolm at The Lazy Olive are true professionals with a very personal touch. They make you feel part of their family! They stocked an impressive bar and encouraged us to party until 4.30am.
