Colton + Lindsey, a Hyatt Tamaya Wedding

We’re total suckers for a childhood crush turned full blown romance years down the road, so its no surprise that we are incredibly smitten with Colton and Lindsey’s love story! Their beautiful fall wedding at Hyatt Rengency Tamaya was the cherry on top of an already amazing little tale of love.

These cuties met at church camp 14 years ago and instantly became friends before they started dating in 2013. And being huge lovers of Disney (something that we share too!) it was only natural for Colton to propose at Disney World. After two previous trips to Disney Parks, Colton made it happen on their third trip together! While stopping in the France Pavillion to take a picture, Coton got down on one knee and proposed to Lindsey in front of her family (he had even been in contact with one of the on-site Disney photographers to capture this moment, swoon!).

Flash foward to this fall and these two pulled off the sweetest darn day ever! Everything was not only gorgeous, but all of the personal touches and details Colton and Lindsey put into their day were beyond words. From creating their own glass signs (which were absolute STUNNERS btw) to the precious little Funko cake toppers to performing a dance they learned in their living room, Colton and Lindsey are seriously the definition of amazing, down-the-earth lovers! This day was such a freaking fairytale, we’ll never stop obsessing over every aspect of it!

Cheers to the Woodruffs, we adore you guys forever and ever!

Wedding Inspo - Glass Wedding Signs

This year we’ve seen some of the most dazzling wedding day details and displays, but the one that has really caught our eyes (& hearts) is glass signage! Tons of our couples have displayed this growing trend on their special days that we couldn’t help but share the beauty of these unique details with all of you!

Each of these signs were not only unique in color and design, but each set truly represented the couple they were created for. From the simple cactus drawings, to the handprinted colored beauties, to the mirror-like signs, all of these wedding day details were beyond dreamy.

Check out all of these incredibly beautiful, yet so modern glass wedding signs, they are certainly a sight to behold.

Tom + Justine, a New York City Engagement in Central Park

Admist all the beauty and craziness of wedding season, New York lovers Tom and Justine invited us out to the Big Apple for their engagement session and we just couldn’t resist sharing all the magic of this special evening! Our girl Bre captured these two out and about in Central Park on a dreamy October evening and it was nothing short of amazing. From Bethesda Terrace and Fountain to the Central Park Lake to all the adorable bridges and walkways of this historic location, we couldn’t get enough of these two in one of the most special places on earth!

Tom and Justine are both attorneys in New York and met a little over two years ago. They instantly fell for each other and they’ll be making in official in Santa Fe at La Fonda on the Plaza next August! We can’t wait to see all the beauty and fun that they’re going to bring to the City Different! Cheers cuties, can’t wait for 2020!

Jason + Ryan, a Ghost Ranch Wedding

Love comes when you’re least expecting it and Ryan + Jason are such a wonderful reminder of that truth. This fall, these lovers invited us to Ghost Ranch to celebrate their love and their life together, something that we were so honored to witness.

Jason and Ryan met at a Conversations About Buddhism group at a meditation center they both attended and Ryan was instantly attracted to Jason’s thoughtful, intelligent insight and contribution to the group. Soon after several chance encounters at a local grocery store (which has its own kind of cinematic, romantic vibe) Ryan realized just how special Jason is to her. Several years down the road, Jason proposed to Ryan on Christmas Day while on a trip in Lubbock, Texas with a photo album filled of their memories together and the words “will you marry me Ryan?” nestled onto one of the images. Needless to say, Ryan said yes to Jason who she described to us as someone who is, “capable of stretching a greeting into a thousand moments while the busy world whirled around in a fury.” (We’re not sure we’re ever heard a more romantic way to describe something as simple as a greeting before!)

Their quaint Ghost Ranch wedding was absolute perfection. From simple, intentional details, to letting the location of Ghost Ranch shine— which, in Ryan’s words, “meant so much to us, as nature is a cathedral for us both.” We were so moved by these two and the pure, spiritual love that they share on such a deep level for one another. If there’s such a thing as soulmates, Jason and Ryan are proof of that once-in-a-lifetime love that you just know the universe conspired into existence.

Cheers to these gentle souls and their love, Ryan and Jason are truly an inspiration!
