Lindsay and Dan's Pomme Wedding by Asya Photography. asyaphotography.com

Bride and groom Lindsay and Dan gathered a group of fantastic Philadephia wedding professionals to help take their blush and ivory wedding from vision to reality. The couple exchanged vows in a traditional church ceremony before heading to Pomme for their reception. The soft color palette beautifully contrasts with the city streets of Philadelphia in the portraits captured by Asya Photography.

The Couple: Lindsay and Dan

The Wedding: Pomme, Philadelphia, PA

The Inspiration: “I wanted an upscale, romantic vintage feel without being too stuffy. Working with my planner, we picked a color palette of ivory/off-white, gold and blush. We chose off-white and blush flowers, and my bouquet had a cascade. The invitations echoed this color palette. We also found two beautiful gold bar carts, and had a vintage settee for the sweetheart table. The 11-piece band completed the setting.

My dress was an ivory lace overlying a very pale blush overlay. My veil was my grandmother’s – and it had been made for her by my great-great-aunt, who was a hatmaker in the 1930s-50s. The veil had a pearl headpiece, so I wore a family heirloom of a long double strand of pearls to match.”

The Couple Recommends: “Susan from The Styled Bride was absolutely wonderful. She made everything about wedding planning manageable and enjoyable. I recommend her to anyone and everyone.

Our pictures from Asya have been beautiful. We loved working with her because of her calm, unobtrusive style – she felt like she could have been a guest at the wedding. And all of the photographs are amazing. We couldn’t have asked for anything more!

Waterfront Cape Cod Wedding

Greer and Austin’s waterfront Cape Cod wedding was perfectly punctuated by the crisp East Coast air and the sailboats off in the distance. As the couple planned their big day, they relied on their intuition to guide them to the right vendors. After discovering Chequessett Yacht Club near Austin’s childhood home on Cape Cod, everything fell into place. Simplicity clearly paid off because Greer is such an effortlessly beautiful bride and you can sense the serenity in their day through these images captured by Henry + Mac. We love how the pair decided to have their first look inside a school bus, which made for some totally fun and one-of-a-kind portraits.

The Couple: Greer and Austin

The Wedding: Chequessett Yacht Club, Wellfleet, MA

The Moment:Our first look is a moment in time I will forever relive. Our photographer had the genius idea to have our first look on the school bus we rented for guest transportation. Austin and I met on the bus going to high school, and included a bus on our save-the-dates. It was only fitting on our wedding day that we would meet on the school bus once again. After seeing each other, all of the butterflies turned into pure joy and I was able to relax in a way I never imagined I would.

The Inspiration:Austin and I live in rural, southwest NH, but are both originally from Dennis, MA on beautiful Cape Cod. After getting engaged, we looked at countless venues in our new stomping grounds. Each had their own unique qualities, but ultimately something was missing. It wasn’t until we moved our venue search back to the Cape when we found our perfect place — sometimes going home is the best thing you can do for your wedding. Chequessett Yacht Club in Wellfleet is the anti-yacht club, yacht club. When the tide is out, small boats sit beautifully on top of the sand like beached whales. Chequessett has the perfect blend of rustic, with classic, unspoiled Cape Cod beauty.

After choosing the venue and picking our date, it was time to nail down the rest of our vendors. Sometimes, you just know when you speak to someone and you jive. This is the feeling we were looking for when picking each vendor. My brother, who got married last year, gave us some sage advice. He said “if during the vetting process, the vendor isn’t responsive or you aren’t getting what you want, it’s not going to get better as time goes on.” So simple, yet it’s advice I would give to every bride. Choose vendors who are vying to work with you. Who give you timely responses when you’re getting estimates; who speak to you respectfully and put their best foot forward.

Flowers turned out to be the biggest part of my inspiration, which is ironic because I know practically nothing about flowers. After searching for wedding inspiration, I stumbled across a Brooklyn wedding online and the flowers were insanely beautiful. The Brooklyn wedding flowers served as my inspiration moving forward. Because we didn’t choose a wedding color palette in the traditional sense, the flowers served as our color palette and we planned much of our décor around them. It was all about texture. We used thistle, berries, billy balls mixed with soft garden roses in creams, purple, yellow and red hues; seasonal, without being overly autumnal. When you’re surrounded by so much natural beauty, it was important for us that the flowers enhanced the setting without being overdone. The flowers also inspired our invitations.

Cool Chicago Engagement Session

The right location can take an engagement session from a handful of portraits to something unforgettable. Calli and Kidd’s cool Chicago engagement session at BOKA Restaurant and Bar did exactly that. Husband and wife team BellowBlue Photography kicked things up a notch by capturing the couple’s love and style, while also creating stunning pieces of art. We love how BellowBlue worked with balancing elements of dark and light as the session went on.

Calli and Kidd are a beautiful couple, but what really took us over the edge are their adorable pups. Here at Junebug we love when the family pets get in on the wedding action, and these two dogs made for such a fun ending to the couple’s session with BellowBlue.
