Francesca + Ben’s Rustic Meets Natural Red August Farm Wedding

A rainy day couldn’t get Francesca + Ben down! Their rustic meets natural Red August Farm wedding was nothing short of brilliant despite the clouds and rain. From their touching first look to their romantic barn vows, come rain or shine, this pair was determined to have a fantastic wedding, and they did!

While we adored seeing Ben + Francesca’s love for one another light up the day, our bride was obviously the best part. We absolutely adored her romantic meets boho updo with bits of baby’s breath details and soft curls. For her makeup look, we wanted to keep things natural so we used soft hues on her eyes but defined them with liner. As for her lips, we kept the tone a peach nude for a softer look.

We can’t get enough of Francesca + Ben’s Red August Farm wedding, and we’re so excited to show you some of our favorite moments.

Rachel + Nick’s Summer King Family Vineyards Wedding

If winter weather is getting you down, we have a dose of summer on the blog for you today. Rachel + Nick’s summer King Family Vineyards wedding is the perfect way to remember that flowers will bloom again, the sun will shine, and a couple in love is always in season. Rachel + Nick’s big day was as romantic as they come. From Rachel’s gorgeous smile to she and Nick’s sweet first look,  this pair was basically glowing on their wedding day, and we were so happy to be a small part of it.

Of course, if we’re going to talk about a glow, we have to talk about our glowing bride. For Rachel, it was all about her wonderful smile and those beautiful eyes. We made sure that her eyes were the focal point of her look, defining them with liner and lashes. For her lips, we kept the color neutral so that her eyes stood out even more. Finally, for her hair, we swept it into a half-up, half-down style with romantic curls framing her face. The result? A glowing bride we just couldn’t get enough of.

We were so happy to help Rachel feel beautiful during her summer King Family Vineyards wedding and can’t wait to share some of our favorite moments with you.
