Are your ready for the best blog post of all time? Yes?! GOOD. Because this is one for the books. I mean, it is literally featuring some of our favorite looks of the year and we cannot wait to share! We have the most amazing clients and our team is so overwhelmed with how bad ass each of them are. In an effort to not make the world's longest post, we have narrowed down our favorite weddings of 2016 by a handful of categories. So grab a bottle of wine (this is way too good for a glass, obvi), sit back, and enjoy all of 2016's eye candy. CHEERS!
VENUE: Paige + Don, The Bowers Museum
The Spanish tiles and ivy grown walls made this venue an easy pick! If you could only hear the fountains in the background—to die for, people!

GOWN: Ella Dantzler, Ivory Beaded Long Sleeve
Not only was Ella one of the most hands down stunning brides you will ever see, her gown was out of this world. The intricately detailed corset balanced with the ever-so-earnest skirt made for our favorite gown of the year!

HOLY VEIL: Carly Kashmanian, Classy Elegance
Crown of the year goes to one of our very own! No surprise that Beth envisioned the most marvelous crown of them all. Fun fact: all berries and foliage were foraged for this crown to make it as natural as can be.

BOUQUET: Shannon, Moody Marsala
OK. Like, WHAT?! Shannon's stunning bridal bouquet had us literally never wanting to let it go. Seriously, Monica did not want to part with this breathtaking bouquet. Shannon's vision was just phenomenal—moody for the win!

GROOMSMEN GOALS: Brenna + Michael, Clean Cut
Talk about CLASSY, am I right?! These gentlemen cleaned up nicely with their navy and brown leather combo. PS. All these suits were made to fit for less than $200 a piece from Combatant Gentlemen.

BRIDE TRIBE: Carley + Garrett, California Dreamin'
DROP DEAD GORGEOUS! Yep. First of all, can these bridesmaids be anymore beautiful? Secondly, don't those robes just make you want to lay on the beach with a pina coolida in hand?! Carly's bride tribe took us to paradise—so unreal!

FIRST LOOK: Kate + Leo, Sweet Escape
Kate + Leo are so dashing. Their sweet escape was absolutely magical. The way they look at each other makes us want to get married right now. Sooo amazing!

DETAILS ON FLEEK: Lauren + Kory, Garden Getaway
Lauren + Kory's wedding was straight out of a fairytale Pinterest board—literally! Lauren's vision was so bright and beautiful, we could not wait to make it all become a reality! Three cheers for some completely jaw dropping details and a gorgeous couple!

AESTHETIC: Jordan + Steve, Tropical Minimalist
Where do we even begin with this one?! Jordan + Steve were such an easy pick for our overall aesthetic favorite. Pink walls, palm trees, and a gorgeous sunset are just some of the out-of-this-world elements from their wedding day. This Seattle couple and their destination wedding will definitely go down in the books for one of our all time favorites!
