Today’s darling couple, Savannah and Tye, first locked eyes during a coed volleyball game at a local church. While that initial encounter on the court sparked no date requests, their official first date was just a short time away and as cute as they come. Tye sneakily sent out a group text asking his friends, including Savannah, if anyone had any interest in a weekend kayaking trip but when Savannah showed up day-of, the date only included Tye (and his third-wheelin’ bestie, Eddy). Fast-forward through four years of courtship later, many dates spent in the sunshine outdoors, and the purchase of some real estate, and the twosome was looking to make their relationship a bit (a lot!) more serious. Tye proposed at the top of Table Rock Summit Trail amidst family, friends, cameras, and imagine it, a drone! Congrats Miss Savannah, your hubby thinks of everything! So it makes perfect sense since their engagement was set against the mountains, that their beautiful Big Day should too. Choosing gorgeous Grandfather Vineyard & Winery as their venue of choice, the duo went for a relaxed outdoor wedding and ceremony filled with understated hues of emerald and navy and Fuschia Moss Floral Design bouquets topped off with what happens to be our fave floral of the moment, black tie anemones. Cheers to this happy couple! Your Big Day was so perfect, so personal, and so YOU!

A happy bride makes the prettiest bride and this couldn’t be any truer than Chloe on her wedding day. And while we are sure groomie Cameron’s love for his one-and-only was clear to every friend and every family member in attendance, what makes our hearts go pitter patter just happens to be how well done, from top to bottom, this ceremony and Raffaldini Vineyards reception was. Let’s start from the beginning, shall we, and take a scroll through each gorgeous image captured by lovely High Country shutterbug, Boonetown Story. Chloe’s BHLDN halter gown takes the metaphorical (wedding) cake not just because of its flirty open back but for how ladylike that peek-through halter neckline is. Sighs all around. And how about that wooden signage crafted by the bride and her father? Truly professional. And drumroll please… our favorite part of this Big Day and our favorite trend of 2017 has to be the succulent favors prepared by The Succulent Source. We like them because of their cute little size but also because it’s a takeaway that keeps on giving, a favor that guests can actually make use of. All pluses in our book! Chloe and Cameron, we raise our glasses to you two lovebirds and wish you a lifetime of happiness!
