The Crazy Catch

All of us possess a little bit of crazy. But there is just something about finding the one who gets that little quirky side of you. Someone who gets every word you say (and those that you don’t). With all the celebrations that come our way, we somehow get a glimpse of a love story in how a couple does their wedding.

We particularly fell in love with Martin and Stefanie’s Great Gatsby meets Alice in Wonderland affair because it embodies how love can make us do beautiful things, as well as goofy ones. How small details (love love love the invitation design by the way), as well as family and friends make a wedding epic… How laughing, dancing, and throwing a drop-dead gorgeous celebration is totally cool. Stefanie was simply glowing in her classic gown. The light pink tones of the entourage dresses were the perfect balance to the bold and bright colors of the reception that was styled by Bea Valdes, which was the right balance of timeless and trendy. So go ahead, be a little crazy… it sure makes the world more fun. Thank you MangoRed for sharing the love!

The Sweetest Sophistication

Pinch me please, because I think I’m still dreaming. This super gorgeous wedding from MangoRed is what great Mondays are all about. Ryan and Amanda’s beautiful bash is filled with sweet sophistication and delicate daintiness. To be honest, among all the prettiness you are about to see, we sort of admit that the bride’s gown the thing we took a good long look at. And today, we only have to look not once, nor twice, but three (yes, THREE!) times at the breathtaking gowns by Monique Lhuillier, Reem Acra, and Vera Wang–Amanda looked equally stunning in all of them.

Oh, and I’m pretty sure you’ve heard, right? Blush is the new black. Gotta love, love, love those dresses! Soft and surreal, we’ve decided that we’re welcoming this Monday with arms wide open!
