We love everything about this super intimate wedding in #Dallas that embraced the #lovewillnotbecancelled mantra by hosting their I-DOs at home.
“Their small at-home wedding, with an abundance of FaceTime salutations, was punctuated by a celebratory parade of well wishers waving from cars - they cried. I cried. We are all navigating this weird situation together and I’m still reminded that what I love photographing exists in these most intimate of wedding days.” - photographer Corbin Gurkin Photography who captured the beauty of Julia & John’s day. #lovewins #caratsandcake

Timeless wedding design pro-tip: Feature a sailcloth tent. “When opting for a bespoke, alfresco celebration, consider a sailcloth tent as a nod to a grand and elevated design. From there, use whites, neutrals and natural greenery to embellish the space in a way that doesn’t take away from the sophistication of the tented structure, but still lends itself to a timeless aesthetic." - @eastonevents

"We wanted to achieve a very warm and comfortable vibe in the tent. Neutral shades and a variety of textures were used throughout to create depth and dimension but also to keep the aesthetic very soft and appealing to the eye. Set in the mountains but with a touch of Southern formality, muted colors were used throughout the design." - planner Virginia Frischkorn of Bluebird Productions, describing the inspiration and intention behind Sloan & Scott's breathtaking mountain wedding in #Colorado.

They listened to us and brought a personal element to getting to know us from taking note of how we styled our apartment to listening to our favorite musicians. As a result, they were able to create an environment for our wedding that felt in sync with who we are as individuals and a couple. They curated an unforgettable evening of unassuming beauty, laughter and community.” - said bride, Madison about planner Amanda Savory Events.
