Dreamy-Colombian-Wedding (5 of 21)

Gorgeous views, dreamy bridal fashion, and candid shots are why Yeison and Alejandra’s wedding in Columbia is a must-see. After a classic ceremony at Iglesia El Lugar de Su Presencia, the amazing Captainfer Photography stole the couple away to shoot incredibly romantic moments of the new husband and wife. The bride wore loose wild flowers in her hair and fashioned a top-fitted, timeless gown. We love how you can feel the excitement from the big day in these enchanting photos!

The Couple:

Yeison and Alejandra

The Wedding:

Iglesia El Lugar de Su Presencia, Bogotá, Colombia

The Inspiration:

I had a pastry shop which decoration was vintage, so we decided to use some of its decorative elements in our wedding. We also liked the rustic wave that we have seen at wedding blogs, and we decided to include it at our wedding decor theme because it matched with the venue.

The Moments:

Our favorite moment was the ceremony because we have prayed for God´s presence to be there, and after the ceremony many people told us they felt something really special that they could not explain. It was perfect and was “magic”. We are sure God´s presence really was there. We also love that moment because without being planned, our votes had things in common and were connected with our pastor words.

Rustic Bohemian Wedding at Elodie Farm

Rustic-Bohemian-Wedding-at-Elodie-Farm (38 of 43)

Curtis and Charlotte were best friends before they started dating, and for that reason they knew that once they took that next step their relationship would quickly turn into love. Their casual, bohemian wedding at Elodie Farm in North Carolina was a beautiful day filled with raw, natural decor and simple attire. Wishing for their son to be a part of the ceremony, Curtis and Charlotte’s favorite moment will make you love this special day even more! We can’t believe how perfectly Kasey Loftin Photography captured the incredible love on the big day!

The Couple:

Curtis and Charlotte

The Wedding:

Elodie Farm, Durham, North Carolina

The Inspiration:

When we decided to get married, there was no other choice in our minds but to have the ceremony at the goat farm that we spend most of our free time, and the place where we feel in love. The farm is really what set the tone for our inspiration, a casual yet intimate gathering for our closest friends and family, with the sweetest feel. We are in the food and hospitality industry so we wanted to incorporate local vendors and friends as much as possible. My dad and our friend/ restaurant owner provided the food/pizza, a local farm supplied the flowers, and all of decor was from the farm. The style (decor and fashion) was effortless bohemian with authentic rustic touches, providing a romantic yet free-spirited look and feel to our day, and it couldn’t have been more perfect.

The Moments:

When I think back to our wedding there is always one exact moment that comes to mind and brings me to tears almost every time. Instead of doing a candle lighting ceremony or a sand ceremony, we chose to do a “blessing of the hands” ceremony in which Curtis and I placed our hands on my belly and the officiant read the blessing. It was important for us to incorporate our son into the ceremony and we thought that this reading was the perfect way to do so. It talks about how these hands will protect you, honor you, cherish you, and love you eternally. While the officiant was reading the passage and our hands were placed on my stomach, our son began kicking. Curtis and I both looked at each other, smiled and then started crying. It was such an intimate and special moment and to know that our son was experiencing it with us is something I will truly never forget.

The Couple Recommends:

Definitely our photographer Kasey. She has such an amazing energy and spirit about her that is contagious and made our day so much more fun. Since we did everything for our wedding ourselves it was so nice to just leave this piece up to her, and she truly exceeded our expectations. By the end of the day we were laughing and talking with her like we had known her for years, and we now consider her a friend, which is so special to us, and which is why I would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding. We can’t thank her enough for the time and effort she put into our special day.

Charming Savannah Wedding at Bethesda Academy

Charming-Savannah-Wedding-at-Bethesda-Academy (22 of 25)

He lived in New Orleans and she, Atlanta, but after meeting at a football game in Alabama, Kerri and Brandon sparked up an exciting new relationship. The long distance only made these two realize their love for one another and how they couldn’t spend another moment apart, so Brandon quickly made the move to Atlanta. Deciding on an intimate, wedding, Kerri and Brandon focused on creating an awesome dinner party surrounded by love. The Bethesda Academy in Savannah, Georgia with its historic buildings and Spanish moss covered oak trees created the perfect setting for this charming Savannah wedding. Hopkins Studios expertly captured the happy couple on their big day!

The Couple:

Kerri and Brandon

The Wedding:

Bethesda Academy, Savannah, Georgia

The Inspiration:

We wanted our overall feel to be very focused on family and love. We wanted to keep things very intimate and small. It was all about the love between us and the love of our families. We wanted our wedding to feel like an intimate dinner party…with a kick ass party band! :) We definitely took some inspiration from our surroundings. Bethesda Academy’s grounds are absolutely stunning; the old buildings, the Spanish moss covered oak trees, the Moon River, Whitefield Chapel. Wedding day fashion was simple. We wanted to be comfortable and relaxed. I was not even looking to wear a “wedding dress” but I came across the beautiful Lela Rose “Forrest” gown and thought it was perfect. It fit my personality perfectly and fit with the setting as well.

The Moments:

It is so hard to pick just one, because the whole day was absolutely perfect! But if we had to pick one, it would be our ceremony. Brandon and I decided to write our own vows to one another and it was so special. We called them our Love Letters to one another. It was so great to look out at our family and friends and see the smiles on their faces, and the tears in their eyes. You could feel love in that little chapel. And to have my brother standing next to me as my “Man of Honor” and Brandon‘s sister next to him as his “Best Woman”, it is a moment we will never forget.

The Couple Recommends:

Every single one of our vendors was amazing to work with, and did a fabulous job! We couldn’t have pulled any of it off without Kelly Mattox! What a life saver she was. It was challenging at times trying to plan a wedding from out of town, but Kelly made it so simple and easy for us. I told Kelly the overall look that we wanted for our reception, with no pictures to show her, and she totally got it and made it come to life. Our florist, Amy with Harvey Designs also did an incredible job! She far exceeded our expectations! Our flowers were exactly what we had wanted and more! And she was able to use our flower containers that Brandon made himself! (the brown wood boxes used as the center pieces on the tables)
