1960’s Frank Lloyd Wright Inspired Wedding

September 30, 2014 | carrie

Taking place at a Frank Lloyd Wright venue, Allie and Timmy’s 60’s inspired wedding incorporated retro designs and different pop culture artifacts, including a typewriter. Their bright and joy-filled day was beautifully captured by Kimberly Seabury, who’s emphasis on photographing the emotions of the day made for some seriously breathtaking imagery! In honor of The Beatles, Woodstock, and Twiggy, sit back and enjoy Allie and Timmy’s 1960’s Frank Lloyd Wright inspired wedding.


The Couple: Allie & Timmy

The Wedding: 8.2.14 in Salem, Oregon

The Inspiration: Our inspiration for the wedding was mid century design meets classic cocktail party. The two kind of go hand and hand, so it was a pretty fun process of gathering ideas and making our ideas a reality. We’ve both always been into classic design, so getting married was really a great way to showcase our style and get creative. I’ve always dreamed of having a fancy soiree, reminiscent of a party scene from an old movie. And also to have a swanky party with a lounge feel. And we were able to incorporate the two. It was cocktail classy meets lounge retro. The fashion fell into the same categories. Though my dress wasn’t actually vintage, I like to describe it as a 1950’s Vogue drawing. Very flowing, yet also very angular. Tim’s suit was very 1960’s. A classic suit, with a fashionable flair. Very mod. He looked like one of the Beatles! 
















The Moments: There were so many great moments I will never forget, so it’s hard to choose just one! It was amazing being able to see so many friends and family together in the same place. It was great getting to see everyone having the best time and telling me so. And of course, it was beautiful to spend the whole night with the man of my dreams. But I’d have to say that the best moment for me was being able to watch my grandparents share a dance with one another. To see the love they still have for each other is so inspiring and touching. I can only hope Tim and I persevere and are lucky enough to grow old with each other.

Nautical Inspired DIY Wedding in Maine

September 30, 2014 | lexi

Emily Delamater Photography

Last Spring, I had the ultimate privilege to stand next to my oldest childhood friend and watch her marry her best friend and soul-mate. Drawing inspiration from all things nautical, this DIY wedding was relaxed, perfectly executed, and entirely sentimental. Their wedding was the ultimate celebration of love, filled with close family and friends, incredible food, and non-stop dancing – all captured perfectly by Emily Delamater Photography. I am beyond honored to share Jess and Tom’s nautical inspired DIY wedding with y’all today!

The Couple: Jessica and Tom

The Wedding: Laudholm Farm at Wells Reserve, Wells, Maine

The Inspiration: Since Tom and I are from different cities – we knew that our wedding would include travel for at least some of our guests. Instead of asking half the party to travel – we asked everyone to! Tom and I got married in Wells, Maine close to Ogunquit where Tom’s parents have a beach house. The inspiration for the theme and decor was a combination of laid back New England and nautical.
