Olga and Chris’ Free-Spirited Sauvie Island Wedding

Where it took place: Sauvie Island, Portland, Oregon

Why we love it: It will be years before we forget Olga and Chris’ free-spirited wedding thanks to its punchy color palette and casual-cool details. Olga’s bridesmaids rocked short white dresses while Chris’ groomsmen looked like true rockers in their denim jackets and floral ties. We know you loved this wedding too because it’s one of our absolute most-popular posts of the whole year!

Béatrice and Alex’s Minimalist Bohemian Montreal Wedding at Studio Éloi

Where it took place: Studio Éloi, Montreal, Canada

Why we love it: We referred to Béatrice and Alex’s wedding again and again this year when looking for inspiration for creating a cozy reception from the ground up. This pair married in a blank-slate studio space that they transformed with beautifully-curated furnishings, hanging macramé, and a neutral color palette. It doesn’t hurt that this bride and groom are the coolest couple on the block!

Alissa and Michael’s Emotional Portland Wedding that Took Place at the Bride’s Childhood Home

Where it took place: Private Residence, Portland, Oregon

Why we love it: We’re all about emotion-driven celebrations and none got us right in the feels quite like Alissa and Michael’s wedding at the bride’s childhood home. As soon as the bride and groom shared their “first touch” around a door, we knew we needed a full box of tissues to get through the rest of the heartfelt moments in this wedding!

Kaitlyn and Bryce’s Wildly Romantic Wedding at Wind Wolves Preserve

Where it took place: Wind Wolves Preserve, Kern County, California

Why we love it: Kaitlin and Bryce’s Wind Wolves Preserve wedding honestly looks like it came out of an Anthropologie catalog and we’re not mad about it one bit! From the getting ready teepee to the reception decor, every detail was on trend and perfectly in line with the couple’s boho style.

Naomi and Bryan’s Floral Inspired Antigua Wedding at the Santa Clara Ruins

Why we love it: Naomi and Bryan filled their day with so many elegantly unexpected details that it’s hard to choose a favorite!

From the venue itself to the flowers to the favors, there’s a whole lot to love in this destination wedding!

Jenelle and Johnny’s Moody Fairy Tale Wedding in Southlake, Texas

Where it took place: Private residence, Southlake, Texas

Why we love it: Jenelle and Johnny turned your traditional fairytale wedding on its head with their glorious moody celebration. The purple color palette was ahead of its time (hello, 2018 color of the year!) and was seemingly inspired by the subtle lavender tint to the bride’s mega-gorgeous Hayley Paige gown. From florals to bridesmaids’ fashion, it’s safe to say we’re obsessed!
