Michelle + Matthew’s Romantic Summer Pippin Hill Wedding


Get ready to swoon because Michelle + Matthew’s romantic summer Pippin Hill wedding is going to make your heart flutter. With soft florals, a crisp white and gold palette, and the stunning grounds of Pippin Hill, this big day was everything brides dream of, and we’re so happy to have been part of it.

Michelle is a classic beauty, and that’s exactly what we embraced for her bridal look. Of course, we wanted to showcase our bride’s lovely face, so we swept her hair back in a chic chignon but kept it loose for a more romantic feel. For her makeup, it was all about her lovely eyes. We enhanced their natural shape and color with neutral hues as well as liner and lashes. Our bride looked stunning on her wedding day.

We adored being a small part of this warm weather wedding and can’t wait to share a few of our favorite moments with you.

Erika + Eric’s Romantic Pippin Hill Wedding


What do you get when you add cool tones, romantic florals, one gorgeously fluffy dog, and family + friend involvement? A wedding to remember. Erika + Eric’s stunningly romantic Pippin Hill wedding may just be one of our all time favorites (though, really, they’re all our favorites). From the soft purple hues to the sunset ceremony, the big day’s got everything you could want.

One detail we can’t get over, though? The bride herself. Erika glowed on her wedding day with her blonde locks softly curled and pulled back from her face. With greenery woven in to her tresses, we kept things ultra-romantic for her vineyard first look and al fresco ceremony. For her makeup, we chose to keep things glowy and made sure Erika was radiant with a lit from within beauty.

While Erika may have been the star of the show (alongside Eric, of course), the other details we love are how this couple’s family and friends helped makeup their wedding so special. With family friends providing music for the ceremony, the bride’s aunt providing the perfect jewelry, the cookie table crafted by guests, and photographs by friend Jeremy Salapek, the love could seriously be felt from beginning to end.

We are so excited to showcase Erika + Eric’s Pippin Hill wedding with beautiful photos from Jeremy Salapek.
