It doesn’t take long after meeting Ivan + Anita to realize that they are both true romantics. On the morning of the wedding Ivan gave Anita five gifts wrapped in separate boxes and numbered them. One of them included a photo of a willow tree that Ivan had planted in their new home together since Anita loves willows, and another was a journal full of letters he had written to her since the day they first met. Every detail they planned for their wedding was something personal to them. They both love quotes and Anita framed a quote for each of the reception tables. We loved this quote on one of the tables; “What greater thing is there for two human souls that to feel that they are joined – to strengthen each other – to be at one with each other in silent unspeakable memories”. [George Eliot] See more on Style Me Pretty.
Anita + Ivan, your whole day was absolutely beautiful and perfect, and we wish you both a lifetime of memories together.
We chose Mark + Elizabeth Kowal from White Album Weddings. We wanted a romantic and natural feel for our photos. Photography is the most important thing for me as I love pouring over photos over and over again and to have beautiful photos to look back on and remember our special day will be the greatest gift, for us, and to be able to share with our families, friends, and our future children, grandchildren and hopefully great-grandchildren!!

Sweet, earthy and organic, this wedding style photographed by Elizabeth Kowal of White Album Weddings brings rustic and romantic elements together simply, but still strikingly beautifully. The simplicity of the textured palette of greens and the setting, amidst grassy fields and in a vintage wedding chapel, are sure to stun and offer inspiration for the minimalist bride at heart.

I can tell you with certainty that simplicity
is one of the truly precious things in this life. (quote by Annie Traurig)
The quaint chapel is full of rich warm wood tones and antique stained glass windows, a romantic place for an intimate ceremony. Nestled between the two tall windows are climbing vines shaped into a heart which makes a whimsical and pretty backdrop for the wedding vows. A sweetheart table with a tall centerpiece of cascading greenery on crisp light linens is flooded with natural light from a nearby picture window and was styled by Floral Design by Lili, who also created the ceremony vine backdrop and the all-green bouquet, a mix of ferns and Queen Anne’s Lace.
A semi-naked cake is dressed in white and topped by a simple cutting. Blending modern appeal with a timeline elegance, the bride’s hair placed in a low chignon, effortlessly tousled and finished with a single vine. Her makeup is a stunning tailored approach to classic vintage chic, with light washes of gold and a dramatic and bold burgundy lip color to compliment the sophisticated styling by Felicia Bromba. The gown is a vintage find by Borrowed Bridal Dreams with an upper bodice adorned with cream and ivory toned sequins, and draping chiffon flowing effortlessly from the waist to the floor.
