Thao & Dan: Lakeside Wedding

Ohio

November 11th, 2010

Growing up, a friend of mine had a house on a lake, and we spent many lazy summer hours on the dock imagining a wedding there. What we created in our minds was a wedding that looked just like this one. Family, friends, not too much fuss, lots of DIY, and a ceremony over the water. This sweet day was photographed by Redwall Photography, and I first saw it on Wedding Chicks.

Thao and Dan held their wedding at the lake cottage that Dan’s grandparents owned and where he’d visited them all his life. They kept their guest list small, which allowed them the opportunity to take everyone out on a boat for cocktails after the ceremony. This is a great tip when planning a wedding…the smaller the guest list, the more flexibility you’ll have to do something memorable, as Thao and Dan did. wedding on the waterwedding on the waterwedding on the waterwedding on the waterwedding on the waterwedding on the waterwedding on the waterwedding on the waterwedding on the waterwedding on the water

Alex & Akil: Beach Wedding

Costa Rica

November 4th, 2010

This beach wedding makes me smile. First of all, the bride and groom, Alex and Akil, were obviously made for each other. Their wedding took place on a perfect stretch of beach at Reserva Conchal on Costa Rica and was created with the help of Aimee at Tropical Occasions. Love the woven textures and deep brown accents of the design. I also love the fact that Jose Villa shot this wedding and was so willing to let me post it! As a former photographers’ agent from NYC, I’ve seen a lot of good photography. The first time I saw a Jose Villa photo shoot, I knew he was something special, and here he proves me right.beach weddingbeach weddingbeach weddingbeach weddingbeach weddingbeach wedding
