We make no secret of the fact that we LOVE when proposals are capturing on camera. From an editor's perspective, there's something that makes me absolutely giddy about the pure, unfiltered emotion captured on both people's faces. The one being surprised, yes, but also the person proposing. The anticipation, nervous energy and pure, unbridled hope that shines through reminds me of that moment when my now husband got down on one knee, and everything tunneled in to that one, anticipatory second.
There's nothing like fall in the Northwest. The temperate weather and beautiful colors make for the perfect background to engagement photos. We love that they chose a lakeside location to capture their love. And their outfits are the perfect inspiration for a casual fall photo shoot!
Having a Pinterest pretty wedding is great and all, but it's the personal details that really it make it special! From fun personal table names to pictures of the two of them, this couple really highlighted what was meaningful to them. And we love the color combination of dusty blue and creamy whites - we have a feeling you'll be seeing a lot more of it in 2019!
This gorgeous rooftop wedding is city chic at its best! The gorgeous couple planned every detail with intent and their planner shared some of those thoughtful details with us. "Alina and Tony are an amazing couple, whose wedding was filled with love, laugher, elegance, and style - one I would do all over again in a heart beat. Although these two have lived in several different cities, both as individuals and as a couple, Seattle has become home for them, and the city they knew they wanted to get married in. This decision and every other detail had so much meaning and thought put into it, ranging from the date - one day before Alina's parents' Anniversary, to the cocktails served a Jeff's Margarita (Alina's dad) and a classic punch for Tony's dad, Tom."
We are huge fans of fall weddings here at Apple Brides. There is something so cozy and romantic about saying "I do" when there's a bit of a chill in the air! That being said, there are a few things that you must consider if you plan to have your wedding during those autumn months.
Let's face it, your wedding day is going to be epic no matter what. But when you're able to incorporate cultural traditions that are close to your heart, it is all the more special. We love that this couple was able to highlight their Irish heritage, all with an incredible view of Lake Coeur d'Alene!
Recently, we were in New York for Bridal Fashion Week, where bridal designers from all over the world debut their upcoming dress collections. We got a chance to see all the gorgeous designs before they hit shelves, and see what was going to be up and coming for the 2019 season. Here's what we loved!
This private vow renewal at the base of Mt Rainier is perfect for adventure lovers! These two opted to renew their vows in a private ceremony for their 5th anniversary and paid homage to their love of the outdoors through the location. Small details that have meaning for the couple are what make a wedding so special, so we love the sentimental, special details these two included for this moment that they shared with us.
This couple eloped when they got married, so for their first anniversary they rented a lodge area for friends and family to take part in a weekend full of celebration. The day was full of love and laughter from everyone who came, and included a surprise visit from a fire breather!
We're going to preface this by saying this couple is stunning all on their own. However every detail of this styled shoot has us absolutely swooning.
We LOVE when someone has the forethought to have a professional capture their proposal. Stealth, ingenuity and detailed planning led to a golf course marriage proposal that had the future bride laughing and crying at the same time. The groom found a company that prints custom designs on golf balls and had them inscribed one with the words: "will you marry me?" Then he sawed the golf ball in half and inserted a ring-holder into the center.
Purple and pink and gold, oh my! These gorgeous, girly color tones pull together to create a warm, feminine aesthetic with metallic touches. Coupled with a chic groom in a tan suit and a sexy dress and you've got yourself one gorgeous wedding inspiration shoot!
