Catherine & George   ♥   Orange County, USA

Photographer:   Endless Wave Studios


Catherine & George live in Taiwan, however they planned their wedding overseas in The States to ensure that their family and friends would be by their sides on their special day.


And what a day it was! Relaxed-yet-refined this Orange County celebration radiates with rustic romance. From their adorable first look moment, to the end of the evening – dancing outdoors with their nearest and dearest under rustic strings of twinkling lights – this delightful duo sported a look of pure happiness, their love for one another and for their family clear for all to see.


Catherine certainly won in the style stakes too in her oh-so-chic, figure-hugging fishtail frock and delicate veil – just right for an open-air Cali celebration.

Hadley & Kal   ♥   Los Angeles, USA

Photographer:   Megan L Photo


Sometimes the key to a great wedding is simplicity and that is exactly how the talented photographer of today’s sweet nuptials described this darling Los Angeles Temple wedding day.


Megan L Photo:

“Hadley and Kal’s short, but sweet Los Angeles Temple wedding was planned in only two months! They went for simplistic, and put more importance on the love that they shared than on anything else.”


Wide beaming smiles were worn the whole day through by not only Hadley and Kal but by each of their guests too. Fun, love and togetherness are the main ingredients for creating a successful and memorable wedding day and that’s exactly the recipe that today’s super-cute couple went for, and there’s no denying that the beautiful clear blue skies helped to deliver a bright and breezy, summer party feel.

Real Wedding – From London To LA

You Mean The World To Me

Bora & Will   ♥   Los Angeles, USA

Photographer:   onelove photography


Today’s real wedding is picture perfect. Of course, Bora the beautiful bride steals the show in her delicately detailed dresses and just wait until you see her shoes – you’ll definitely go green eyed!  


Bora and Will held their reception in one of California’s chicest hotels, The London in West Hollywood, Los Angeles. With panoramic views across the City of Angels as their backdrop, the couple put their heart and soul into adding a personal stamp to the venue (including a giant monogram topiary no less!) and they really made their special day their own.

Sara says:

“Okay, I have to spill a guilty secret. I was ‘this’ close to hijacking these two wedding dresses for my own, after seeing Bora stun in them. If only I was getting married again… swoon! Simply breathtaking! Bora is a designer for Tory Burch so it makes sense that her wedding would be so absolutely stunning!”

Bora says:

“My love of design, decor, interiors, fashion…I wanted it to be a mix of classic and modern with lots of greenery. Instead of how a ‘wedding’ should be with colour themes – I wanted it to be ‘how I would decorate my home’ or a ‘dinner party’. Romantic, classic, a bit quirky with all my favourite things – topiaries, blue and white Chinoiserie vases, black and white checkered floors, chandeliers, candelabras and I definitely wanted long rectangular tables. I also had my ‘Olympia Le Tan’ book clutch for the wedding- as something blue, which I loved!”
