I had the honor of featuring so many beautiful Real Weddings this year and every one fit my credo for ‘creatively wed’ event – it was nearly impossible to narrow those down, but I wanted to share some of my favorite inspiration from real couples this year! From boldly colorful affairs filled with unique details, showstopping backdrops of lush flowers, couture dresses for international castle destinations, and minimalist organic decor with botanical greenery, each and every one of these featured couples reach the epitome of creative wedding inspiration!
Alan and Yenisleidy’s wedding day was such an immediate pick – the bride herself was behind most of the incredible details that made this day so personal and so picture-perfect! The breathtaking photos managed to do justice to her boho garden inspiration in rich shades of berry pink and taupe gray. This is the very definition of creative wedding inspiration!

Ann and Tucker managed to pull off one of the most beautifully styled, minimal wedding days that I’ve ever come across!
