Anastasia and Kristers’ Fairytale Wedding at Liepupe Manor

Where it took place: Liepupe Manor, Liepupe, Latvia

Why we love it: Anastasia and Kristers made elegance seem effortless in their fairytale outdoor wedding. From the lush manor park where they exchanged their vows to the cozy greenhouse where they dined under twinkle lights with their two witnesses, everything about this wedding felt laid-back yet sophisticated. The best part? It was all done in the prettiest pink color palette! This Latvian wedding will truly make you feel like you’ve stepped into a storybook scene.

Phong and Hoang’s Epic Tropical Bohemian Vietnam Elopement

Where it took place: Bai Tho Mountain, Vietnam

Why we love it: Between the epic mountaintop ceremony looking over the sea and the intimate sweetheart dinner on a boat, this Vietnam elopement was truly breathtaking! The couple climbed the Bai Tho Mountain for over an hour to get to the summit, where they exchanged emotional vows just as the sun was rising, and it could not have been a more romantic moment. Then they toasted to forever on a boat that was decked out with cafe lights, dreamcatchers, black and gold place settings, and organic florals, grasses, and greenery. Can you say destination elopement goals?

Rachel and Michael’s DIY Palm Springs Wedding

Where it took place: Ace Hotel Palm Springs, California

Why we love it: Palm Springs always brings out the creative side of couples, and Rachel and Matthew were no exception! The crafty couple created three separate lounge areas with Moroccan rugs, couches, and lanterns, set up a mini paper burning altar for their ceremony, and designed tablescapes that were full of texture and color. Plus, the day began with the bride serenading her hubby-to-be during their first look, so our hearts didn’t stand a chance!

Tyler and Graham’s Fashionable Southern Wedding at Huguenot Mill and Loft

Where it took place: Huguenot Mill and Loft, Greenville, South Carolina

Why we love it: When a wedding is full of as much joy, handmade magic, and killer style as Tyler and Graham’s winter celebration, we can’t possibly only share it once! Not only did the bride rock a glamorous ruffled gown and a hand-me-down pearl crown, but the groom pulled off an epic style surprise with a black sparkly jacket. The couple also incorporated Christmas trees into their ceremony decor, asked their friends to bake a variety of cakes for their reception, and surprised everyone with a late-night taco delivery on the dance floor. No detail was left unattended and the result was the epitome of a winter wonderland!

Samantha and Chantal’s Minimalist Glam Garden Wedding

Where it took place: Madsen’s Greenhouse, Newmarket, Ontario

Why we love it: Samantha and Chantal’s wedding was essentially in a secret garden but had a minimalist and modern vibe that was totally their own. The crisp white flowers and gold accents were the perfect balance against the loads of greenery that filled both their ceremony and reception. And the brides’ complementary strappy lace wedding gowns and romantic, flowing hairstyles were bridal style goals!

Anastasia and Aleksandr’s Boho Picnic Style Beach Wedding in Bali

Where it took place: Melasti Beach, Bali, Indonesia

Why we love it: A cozy picnic on the beach, crystal clear water, a boho-luxe bridal gown, and a groom that plays guitar…do we need any more reasons to obsess over Anastasia and Aleksandr’s bohemian Bali wedding? Their vibe was totally chill, but every element was also designed to perfection. We still don’t know what we love most: the bride’s chic-meets-boho style, the stunning views, or the contagious energy that radiated from every image. So, we’ll just go with all of the above!

Tirza and Chris’ Dia De Los Muertos Wedding

Where it took place: Jurupa Valley, California

Why we love it: Not only was this Dia De Los Muertos wedding perfect for Halloween but the idea of honoring those who have passed as you embark on the beginning of your forever resonated with us on such a deep level. Set in a California desert, this wedding was spooktacular from top to bottom with vibrant red and orange florals, traditional attire, skeleton makeup, a mariachi band, and a sweetheart table that doubled as an Offrenda with photos and treats for Tirza and Chris’ loved ones.

Anna and Davis’ Burgundy and Olive Latvian Wedding

Where it took place: Nitaures Dzirnavas, Nitaure, Latvia

Why we love it: We never realized how much we love wedding balloons until we saw Anna and Davis’ gorgeous wedding, and now we can’t help but hope that balloons are a 2019 wedding trend! This Latvian wedding was filled to the brim with cozy lounge seating, moody florals, gold accents, bohemian-inspired teepees, and anything else you could dream of for an upscale outdoor wedding. Not to mention the watercolor-inspired paper goods and signage and the cascading greenery in every corner were out-of-control gorgeous!

Midori and Chris’ Retro Hawaiian Wedding at Kualoa Ranch

Where it took place: Kualoa Ranch, Honolulu, Hawaii

Why we love it: Midori and Chris’ intimate beach wedding was full of aloha spirit! The couple exchanged vows and traditional Hawaiian leis in the company of their nearest and dearest family and friends, then made their way to a Hawaiian garden for an open-air reception under the palm trees and the stars. With pineapples, tons of vibrant blooms, tropical greenery, string lights, hand-stitched napkins, reusable totes bags, and a retro photo booth van, they created the coziest island reception we can imagine. (And made us want to pack our bags and head for the islands immediately!)

Allie and Jesse’s Urban Boho Wedding in Downtown Seattle

Where it took place: MadArt Studio, Seattle, Washington

Why we love it: It should come as no surprise that this stunning art gallery wedding was put together by a bride who is both a wedding planner and floral designer herself! Allie and Jesse chose the venue because it was a blank canvas on which they could make their mark. Then they added seasonal blooms, pampas grass, a handmade hexagonal ceremony backdrop, black linens, a pink and gold accents to the space that gave it a totally distinct, fun-loving look. They also indulged in a champagne tower unity ceremony, which really is just as cool as it sounds!
