Krista & Michael: Lombardi House Wedding

Love is classic. Shining. Timeless. And sometimes, true love is effortless. That is exactly how Krista and Michael's love feels, and that's why their wedding day at Lombardi House in Hollywood felt so perfect for them.

When Gavin James performed "Book of Love" during the ceremony, the dreamlike perfection of the day could not have been more moving.

When Michael's brother stood to give his toast, he mentioned his brother's passion for finding the best of all things. These two clearly know they have found the best in each other. After that, it was time for one of the greatest parties we've ever witnessed. Have you ever seen a bride and groom crowd surf at their wedding reception??

I have to say that Krista and Michael's style is as effortless as their love. With a classic black, white, and gold palette, every part of this day shone with Hollywood glamour! In the welcoming green and white oasis of Lombardi House, it felt almost like stepping back in time.

Krista and Michael, thank you for including us in all of the heartfelt, tear-jerking, and flat-out rocking moments of your day! May every day ahead of you be just as effortlessly joyful and beautiful!

Chelsea & Brian: El Encanto Santa Barbara Wedding

Yesterday we shared Chelsea & Brian's sweet Love Story film, and you got a taste of just how beautifully these two express their love for each other. Today, make sure you've got a tissue on hand, because this classically romantic wedding at the Belmond El Encanto in Santa Barbara includes some of the most moving, eloquent vows I have ever heard!

I'm not going to say too much about this wedding, because nobody could say it better than the bride and groom...

This Santa Barbara wedding had it all: classic style, an emotional ceremony, a gorgeous location, and a joyful party crowd! Can you believe that Brian designed the invitations and printed details?

Chelsea and Brian, thank you for your openness and your generosity, for opening your hearts and sharing your love - and your love story - with the world. I am inspired by your words of love and by your dedication to each other. I know that you will only grow in love as you face your next adventure together!
