We know the whole vintage-inspired thing is totally de rigueur right now, but we find it refreshing to see an ultramodern affair every once in a while. This event was photographed by Tara Welch Photography and coordinated by Amber Karson Events—and was held at the super-cool LongView Gallery.
District Weddings

A Maryland wedding with a Peanuts theme, bridesmaids in yellow with brown leather accessories, and an old-fashioned candy station—what’s not to love here? Oh, and the old window transformed into a wedding-day itinerary is pretty genius, too.

We’re guessing brown leather accessories are becoming a trend here; bride Kristen paired her gown with a leather belt (what a cool alternative to a satin sash). We’re also loving the venue, Panorama Farms, located right outside of Charlottesville (lots of new-to-us rustic farm venues popping up lately!).

This Chesapeake Bay wedding incorporates some cute nautical touches. And we’re huge fans of the bride’s gown—the origami pleating is so unusual.
Bayside Bride

There’s something about bright yellow flowers—especially craspedia boutonnieres­—that just makes us happy. We’re head over heels for the modern accents at this Celebrations by the Bay wedding.
