Today is all about the chic and the stylish.
We are in Austin, Texas for Elizabeth and Aaron’s modern white wedding. I so love this couple’s style, with Elizabeth looking elegant in an BHLDN dress with amazing Jimmy Choo shoes. They had a ceremony in front of an open fire, a cocktail hour and some super beautiful décor at their venue; W Hotel Austin. Wow.
Thanks so much to Cory Ryan Photography for sharing their images with us today, here is what they had to say about the day;
“Elizabeth rocked a beautiful long sheath BHLDN wedding dress with a tiny bow on the waist line, which she accentuated with a rhinestone belt and nude Jimmy Choos. Did I mention she has amazing style? One of the reasons I love photographing W hotel weddings is that the décor oozes classy charm on it’s own. But add a creative couples personal touches, you’ve got a heck of a party with lots of eye candy and lovely details! (Which also comes in handy when it decides to pour rain, and you have an awesome ballroom to have your own private party in.)
From start to finish, Elizabeth & Aaron’s wedding day was totally personalized. The ceremony actually took place in the record room by the fireplace, with only the closest 50 family and friends in attendance. The party then moved upstairs where an R&B trio entertained 150+ guests during cocktail hour, which was complete with signature drinks and a sweet toast from Aaron to Elizabeth. Then the doors opened to a lovely ballroom decorated in shades of cream and grey. White lounge sofas and furniture surrounded the dance floor and cupcake table, allowing for a laid-back party atmosphere. The centerpieces included hand wrapped books in the wedding colors, plus silver vases in cool geometric shapes, holding a variety of white flowers.
And would you believe Elizabeth is a semi-professional baker? She actually made all her own cupcakes for the gorgeous display you see! Greenbelt DJ was the proverbial “icing on the reception cake”, spinning the couples OWN records into the dance party mix. AMAZING! Big congrats go out to Elizabeth and Aaron, and thank you for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day!”

This afternoon I have another WWW reader wedding, you guys are the best… it’s official :-)
WWW readers Tom and Emma married on the 28th September 2013 at Flanesford Priory, Herefordshire. With a vision of a countryside rustic celebration they home made almost everything themselves.
They had pretty paper details, luggage tag labels, hessian, logs of wood and decorated jam jars filled with flowers. I love the gorgeous bouquets and the bridesmaids in pink. Emma looked stunning in a classic dress with birdcage veil while Tom went for a dapper grey suit. Beautiful.
Thanks so much to the wonderful Marta May Photography for sharing her imagery.

WWW readers Georgina and Ed married back in October 2013 in the beautiful Cotswolds. They wanted their wedding to be home made with locally sourced seasonal produce.
Georgina customised so many aspects of their day, from her lovely Coast wedding dress to the bridesmaids shoes and her hair comb. She also arranged the pretty flowers, made the silk bouquets and crafted confetti. WOW.
There was scrumptious food, stylish attire and a lot of love.
Thanks so much to the brilliant Delia McDonagh Photography for sharing her gorgeous photographs today.

WWW readers Sarah and Scott married on the 2nd November 2013 and held their reception at Jacksons Lane, a dance studio in London. They begun their day with the sweetest first look at the striking St Pancras train station, I so love the images from this touching moment.
Sarah and Scott had a vision of a vintage circus for their wedding; with a fun red colour scheme they had bunting, tickets, popping candy, straws and clown noses. Sarah opted for a brooch bouquet she made herself instead of flowers and there was a bake off for guests.
Scott wore a grey three piece suit with red tie, while Sarah chose a tea length polka dot dress with red sash. Gorgeous.
Thanks so much to the utterly brilliant Buckinghamshire Wedding Photographer Miki Photography for sharing his photographs with us.
