A Romantic Wedding with a Pink Wedding Dress

Happy Monday lovelies! So much prettiness lined up for this week and we are starting it all off with this sweet + romantic wedding – with a pink wedding dress! Perfect for Valentine’s Day week, right? :) Lauren is an English teacher, so they thought an overarching love story theme would be perfect for their wedding.
 Each table was named after a different novel, and the favors were bookmarks with an ee cummings quote. During the ceremony they even read ee cummings’ poem. “I carry your heart with me.” This poem was actually chosen by Lauren’s 6th grade class as the poem that best captured the spirit of love and they even surprised Lauren on her wedding day with a copy of the poem with all of their signatures – how sweet! :)

 There was some rain on their wedding day, but Lauren said she loved “when it rained because it made our wedding feel even more like a house party and less like a scripted event.” Big congrats to Lauren + Dan and thanks so much to Mi belle photography for the gorgeous photos!

 Our bridesmaids and groomsmen got to choose their own white dress or gray suit (respectively).

We had Spanish-style food to fit the early California vibe of the house. There were pitchers of sangria on every table, which we used for toasts instead of champagne. We also had two signature cocktails: the “Dan” was a whiskey drink, and the “Lauren” was a vodka one.

Chiffon Slip Dress

For a body-confident bride, the simple and revealing slip dress, with its origin in the clingy gowns favored by 1930s Hollywood starlets, is a stunning choice. Petal-shaped paillettes drift down this detailed yet subtle gown. By Suzanne Ermann; nude satin pumps by Christian Louboutin.

 Nontraditional bride Kristin always knew she wanted to wear a pink dress to her wedding…now that’s our kind of girl! With the peachy layers and blush sheer tulle, this surely is one great dress! Look at the rest of the images to see just how stunning she looked in her custom made confection.

 Blush wedding gowns appeared on dozens of runways during New York Bridal Fashion Week—and we predict that dresses in this peach-pink, barely-there shade will soon catch on in a big way.
  Until recently, wearing a wedding gown in a non-white or ivory hue was the exception rather than the rule. But after watching gown after gown come down the runway awash in subtle shades of blush, pale pink, and even true peach, we realized that the paradigm was shifting.
 Especially when Reese Witherspoon, a paean to classic, conservative dressing, put her stamp of approval on the trend by walking down the aisle wearing a blush-colored Monique Lhuillier gown in March. Clearly, blush has made its official debut as an expected—not quirky—wedding dress color.
