A while back, I sent Kathryn of Snippet and Ink a picture from this wedding for her week of Beach Wedding inspiration boards, and she used it on a stunning Northern California beach board
. But this wedding just wouldn't stop haunting me, with it's striking Northern California beauty
, it's quirky style, and it's simple joy. So I decided I had to share this Bodega Bay wedding, as photographed by the talented Jude Mooney
. Continue reading A Simple Bodega Bay Wedding
If I could only have one lofty goal for this website, it would be that I would help make small and simple weddings fashionable again.
There are a million places publishing the worlds expensive weddings, and the message is clear! If we were willing to spend a $100K on our wedding, we could make it amazing(ly expensive). But today I have another great example of a small, simple, affordable wedding that was everything you could wish for and more. Continue reading Heidi & Gerhard’s Lighthouse Wedding
You must, must go check out this amazing wedding
on The Little White Book
. I hesitate to call it a budget wedding, because that would strip away some of it's magical essence. This is the kind of wedding you read about happening 40 years ago, and you sigh, and think "Why can't that happen now?" Continue reading Susan & Cam’s Capital Lawn Wedding
The Little White Book
has been cranking out the adorable simple weddings of late! Go check this simple North Carolina Beach wedding

Every so often I get a wedding that I get so excited about that it makes my little toes wiggle with excitement when I post it. This reader wedding is without a doubt one of those. So, without further ado, I bring you Emmy & Kirk's wedding at Larkspur Farm, Mount Vernon, WA. Hold on to your hats, this is a big post!
What made your wedding creative?
We tried to highlight things that we already love. For us some of those things are letterpress printing, fresh flowers, typewriters, having fun outdoors, photography and music: I took a stab at letterpress printing by enrolling in a great class at the School of Visual Concepts and came out with some lovely invitations.

Oh you guys... I got this amazing email last week, with a wedding that made me remember what really matters, what all this is about. It's not about money, it's not about what we don't have, it's about what we do have: love, joy, family. So feast your eyes on this wedding, and breathe it in. I have been a longtime reader. I got engaged last summer. My husband and I, both law students, were planning a wedding for 2010. The economy has hit the legal profession especially hard. As a result, my husband and I decided to do a "wedding for now" and plan to do a "wedding for later"* when we achieve better financial stability. We planned our mini wedding in three weeks, right before finals, taking place two days before our law school graduation. We had our Dean of Admissions officiate with three witnesses attending, the ceremony took place in the center of our law school courtyard. In the afternoon we had a very non formal reception at an outdoor sangria bar across from the law school. Our budget was around $2,000. Continue reading Clara & Sam’s Recession Wedding
