With Valentine's Day right around the corner, engagements are blossoming and weddings are being planned. Lauri and Isaac's summer wedding at The Holly Farm in Carmel, California is the perfect inspiration for all of the bright celebrations to come. Wispy air plants hung from glass balls, glittering lights graced the surrounding foliage and the venue's natural beauty formed an event that was both elegant and relaxed.
Wedding Ideas: Vera Wang
In classic black, white and gold, Jayme and Nick's wedding day was traditional but with a few fun twists! On the traditional side of things, we have adorable peplum dresses for the bridesmaids, polkadot and plaid bowties for the gents and beautiful architecture to backdrop the group portraits. And for the twists, there were matching TOMS shoes for the groomsmen, a fall inspired S'mores bar, and a toilet paper gun on the dance floor. Yes, you heard right and if you, like me, have no idea what that is, you'll just have to check out the modern and elegant photos of DWJohnson Studio to see for yourself.
With gorgeous intricacy and soft femininity, lace bridal gowns are a favorite for many brides. Though opting for a traditional all-lace gown is certainly a stylish decision, there are many variations of lace detailing and sleeves that these brides featured in our Real Weddings Library wore beautifully. Enjoy!
Bali Wedding at the Alila Villas Uluwatu with Photography by Studio Impressions – Dorothy and Stanley
On the romantic island of Bali, Dorothy and Stanley were wed in a celebration that was truly out of this world! The couple focused on making each detail reflect their unique personalities, including a carpet of pink rose petals down the aisle - the bride's favorite, plus a cake topper that was a identical replica of the couple complete with miniature Vera Wang dress and dashing navy blue suit. They also used bicycles throughout to represent the groom's passion for cycling and his job as a bicycle engineer. The day was enchanting and unforgettable!

Today's sweet garden wedding is a breath of fresh air, reminding me of the romance I saw in weddings as a little girl. Wearing the lace gown that both her grandmother and mother wore at their own weddings, Laura married her groom, Ben, in an outdoor ceremony at her childhood home, followed by a reception at the Philadelphia Cricket Club. Every detail was beautifully sentimental, and it was all perfectly captured by Asya Photography.

So many women feel the need to modestly cover up or hide their body art to be "wedding appropriate". Well, here at Junebug we are all for celebrating your own beauty, not what other people feel you should look like on your wedding day. Your wedding is such special moment in your life and you deserve to celebrate everything that you are.
This year at Bridal Market, tulle was everywhere! With designs that departed far from the voluminous ballgowns reminiscent of a childhood Cinderella fantasy, tulle was used to create everything from soft and airy fluttering layers to tight gathers creating intricate texture and linear structural detail.
