Our featured Anne Barge Bride of the week is Sarah. The bride and groom live in Toronto and wanted a Winter destination for their guests to enjoy. Sarah and Martin were married in picturesque Vail, Colorado. Their Winter wedding was rustic elegance at its best. Set at the Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch, their special day was full of glamorous touches amidst the impressive natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains.

The bride wore “Ryan” from the Anne Barge collection. This silk shantung gown sculpts the body with architectural seaming and a strapless neckline. Sarah accessorized her wedding gown with a beaded sash and fur stole for the outdoor ceremony. Bridesmaids were in long dresses in champagne tones with fur stoles. The Groom wore a striking navy blue tuxedo to set him part from his Groomsmen in classic black.

Dori and Tyler’s Winter Wedding has us in the festive spirit of the holidays! The wedding took place at Stonebridge Farms in Alabama. Their December nuptials took advantage of the season with Christmas trees framing their twinkle lit altar.

Dori found her wedding gown at The White Room in Birmingham AL. From the Blue Willow Bride collection, the Marigold gown has a triple tiered skirt designed in a point d’esprit. She accessorized the waist line with a self-tie sash accented with beading. Bridesmaids wore varying gowns in shades of pink and cream. While the Groom and Groomsmen wore three-piece gray suits. For the reception, the Groom changed into a festive green and red Christmas tie!

The reception was full of other surprises too. Being a graduate of Auburn University, the Groom’s cake reflected the college spirit. And to make the day more unique, wedding guests were visited by Aubie the Tiger!

We hope you enjoy these special moments from Dori and Tyler’s wedding as captured by Simple Color Photography! xo

Congratulations Dori + Tyler!

It is our first Wedding Wednesday in December! And as it is officially Winter (or at least feels that way!), we felt it fitting to share a beautiful wedding set amidst a snowy background.

Scott and Kristin were married in Quebec, Canada at the Fairmont Chateau Montebello. This grand resort sets a rustic yet elegant backdrop complete with luxury log cabins. This choice for a wedding destination was perfect as Scott and Kristin wished for their guests to escape into a Winter wonderland. Guests enjoyed sleigh rides and warmed themselves with hot chocolate wedding favors. Wedding planner Lynn Lee from Fine Weddings & Events ensured everything was executed seamlessly.

The bride wore “Sage” from the Blue Willow Bride collection by Anne Barge. This satin mermaid gown has an Alencon lace v neckline and button details. To stay warm, the bride chose a fur to stave off any chill. And she carried a bouquet by Full Bloom Kristin looked absolutely beautiful!

Real Wedding – Rock & Roll Couple

Mark and Erin were married in June. This couple’s love of Rock & Roll set the theme for their Summer wedding. Custom invitations let guests know that the reception was going to be a celebration reminiscent of a concert tour. Merry Me Events created the flowers for the day and were also the wedding planners overseeing the details… From escort cards in the form of ticket stubs to backstage passes for guests to wear, the imagination that went into this unique wedding is wonderful!

The bride walked down the aisle in Anne Barge’s Waverly wedding gown. Erin found her dress and custom veil at the Wedding Suite at Nordstrom Tyson’s Corner. Jimmy Choo shoes and clutch completed the bride’s beautiful ensemble. The groom donned a Canali suit from Nordstrom Chicago Michigan Avenue.

Mark and Erin said their vows surrounded by friends and family at the Morris Chapel in Niles Michigan. The reception followed at The Brick in South Bend, Indiana.

We know you will enjoy seeing this couple’s special day unfold. The bride described the wedding’s theme as Rock & Roll Industrial Glam. Imagination Photography perfectly captured the joy of the day!

Rock & Roll Invitation Suite

We love weddings which incorporate traditions from various cultures. This week’s featured wedding highlighted the bride’s Chinese heritage . Carmen and Bob were married in Tampa, Florida. For their April wedding, a soft color palette of blush pink to soft rose was chosen. In Chinese culture, the color red symbolizes happiness. Therefore, red was a bold accent color central to many elements in the wedding from the bridesmaids bouquets to the wedding cake.

The bride wore the Aimee gown by Anne Barge. A fit and flare silhouette of draped illusion tulle, the gown’s cross over rucking shows a bride’s figure perfectly. Carmen looked stunning! She accessorized her ensemble with crystal jewelry including a necklace, earrings, and cuff bracelet. Carmen found her Anne Barge wedding gown at Malindy Elene Bridal in Tampa, Florida.

The couple had pre-wedding photographs at the Tampa Museum of Art. The bride and groom performed a Chinese tea ceremony. At traditional Chinese weddings, Tea Ceremony is the equivalent of an exchange of vows at a western wedding ceremony. The wedding ceremony and vows were held at the Westin Hotel in Tampa. Amalie Orrange Photography’s images perfectly illustrate the soft beauty, pure joy, and romantic vision of this wedding. We know you will enjoy the photos to follow! xo

Real Wedding – Moraine Farm

The Estate at Moraine Farm in Massachusetts was the setting for Maria and Jack’s wedding. Their June nuptials took place outside in front of a gazebo on the property’s expansive lawn. The reception celebrations included lawn games and signature cocktails to cool guests under the Summer sun. Dinner and dancing was under a draped white tent with orange and yellow lanterns hanging overhead and giving a soft glow as the night drew near. Maria found her Anne Barge gown at a Trunk Show hosted by Kleinfeld Bridal in NYC. The strapless gown of silk shantung has a full skirt with linear bands decorating the hemline.
