If you’ve been following Junebug for a while, you know that we can never get enough tropical wedding inspo. The minute we laid eyes on Madison and Jeff’s black and white Acre Baja wedding, we were in love. Between the simple white florals from Let It Bloom, the macrame backdrop against the palm trees, the sophisticated black bridesmaids dresses, and Madison’s Grace Loves Lace sheath wedding dress, their special day was the perfect combination of elegant yet casual. Oh, and did we mention that the day included wild peacocks and a donkey? Everything about these photos captured by Junebug member Los Ébano is Pinterest worthy so get those destination wedding boards up because this one is worth saving.

Ethereal Welsh Marquee Wedding in Bae Ceredigion

September 20, 2020 | riley

Angharad and David knew that they wanted to be married somewhere they could incorporate both their cultures. With Angharad being from rural Wales and David being from rural Ireland, the two decided to celebrate their love at a private estate where the Irish sea meets the Welsh coast. The ethereal wedding in Bae Ceredigion belongs in a fairytale storybook with its lush greenery, soft pink color palette, and teepee filled with twinkle lights and small floral arrangements from Flowers at the Dutch Barn.

Despite the torrential downpour, the couple faced early on their wedding day, the clouds eventually passed. They were able to get married in the thick of the rolling hills—making for some of the most beautiful photos we’ve ever seen. We absolutely love how Elena Popa Photography captured every moment of the romantic day.

The Couple:

Angharad & David

The Wedding:

Bae Ceredigion, Wales, UK

The Rural and Bohemian Wedding Vibes

Both Dave and I are from rural parts of the world. Dave’s from rural Ireland, and I’m from rural Wales. We decided we wanted our wedding to reflect this, and so when our neighbors in Wales allowed us to get married on their grounds facing the Mawddach Estuary, we were over the moon. Within their garden is an old chapel’s remains, which was the perfect spot for our ceremony. We hired a teepee for the wedding party and went for a laid-back bohemian style reception. We wanted to create a fun and vibrant wedding with tapas-style canapes, paella for mains, and a pizza van for the evening food.

A Memorable Rain Shower

The morning of the wedding, the rain was relentless. I was adamant that I wanted to get married in the old chapel grounds–consisting of four walls with no shelter overhead. It was looking less and less likely as the guests arrived and quickly hurried into the teepee’s shelter. Dave started making arrangements to move the ceremony inside. I was determined not to give in to the weather, so I said that we should wait for a bit to see if things cleared up. We didn’t have to wait long as a welcome break in the clouds came and the rain stopped. Everyone pitched in to move benches inside the chapel walls, set up the singer, and gather–ready for the ceremony. I will never forget that feeling of everything lining up perfectly–all our loved ones gathering together and helping out to allow us to get married in my favorite place in the world, overlooking the beautiful coastal waters of the Irish sea.

Wedding Day Advice From the Bride

Don’t stress. So many things went wrong on our wedding day–the teepee had puddles at one end of it, we initially had no power for the chef, taxis got stuck in the mud on the way down to the wedding, but all of this made it one unforgettable day. I wouldn’t change a thing.

Intimate and Soulful East Austin Outdoor Wedding

September 19, 2020 | riley

Justine’s Secret House was the perfect venue for Chelsea and Marty’s intimate, fun-loving, and stylish wedding. The couple knew that they wanted to have a very intimate celebration of their everlasting love with a family-only ceremony and a reception. Their venue, which is typically a hip local restaurant, perfectly fit their closest friends and family. 

Chelsea’s Anna Campbell floral laced a-line gown perfectly matched the romantic vibes of Justine’s. At the same time, Marty’s League of Rebels tux looked ultra-chic and stylish–matching the minimalistic decor perfectly. One look at these photos from Junebug member Nikk Nguyen Photo and we’re wishing we were there to drink, eat, and celebrate the very apparent love of this gorgeous couple with them! Ready to see the soulful affair? Keep scrolling and get those Pinterest boards ready, Junebabes. This one’s a keeper. 

The Couple:

Chelsea and Marty

The Wedding:

Justine’s Secret House, Austin, Texas

Why Justine’s Secret House

We picked our venue, Justine’s Secret House, because we’ve shared dozens of lovely meals there together. Over time the aesthetic, menu, and general vibe have become a big part of who we are and what we love about Austin–especially our East Side neighborhood. Marty and I designed our home when we remodeled on the East Side in 2015, and Justine’s Secret House felt like having our wedding in our house/backyard—but better, because we had such talented chefs, servers, bartenders, and event staff at our disposal.

A Very Intimate Ceremony & Friend-Filled Reception

Marty and I had a very specific vision for our wedding from the moment we first started talking about getting married—we wanted it to be intimate and soulful. We wanted to focus on our favorite things in life: good food, good drinks, good music, beautiful spaces, close friends and family, and each other. We had a family-only ceremony and relaxed seated dinner before a cocktail party with 70 more close friends. Our mostly nontraditional day was perfect.

A Memorable Piano Performance

Justine’s Secret House has a piano in the main dining room, so I think both of us agree that our favorite part of the wedding was when I sang Marty a song by her favorite musician–10 Million Miles by Patty Griffin. She put this song on the very first of eight CDs and playlists she’s made for me. Marty loved hearing it and being surprised, and I loved surprising her.
