Homestead Manor

4683 Columbia Pike, Thompson's Station, TN, United States

A short while ago, photographer Abigail Bobo shot newlyweds Eric and Jessica at the stunning Tennessee Homestead Manor, effortlessly capturing their wedding day. Although her photos speak for themselves, she and the happy couple were kind enough to share their personal thoughts and experiences with us, which made for one unforgettable tale.

There’s no beating around the bush here, Homestead Manor is THE modern, barnyard, rustic, host-the-most-epic-garden-party place to be. This 50 acre plot of top-notch farmland boasts some insane marry-making perks such as a dare I say dope bridal suite, pond, indoor-outdoor dining and 4,000 square feet of dancing room. We’re not lying when we say that everyone was literally on their feet, breaking it down (real low) the entire night.

Takk House

55 3rd Street, Troy, New York

Newlyweds Heidi and Frank are both owners and wedding savants of the Takk House. This grand victorian building is retrofitted for any occasion—seriously, the couple is known for making the wildest of requests into reality, and loving every minute of it. When it came time to plan their own wedding, they knew they had to go all out, and that they did.

The aged, vintage feel of the building in combination with repurposed items like an old television turned welcome sign, check in, and concierge desk, made Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" inspired interior to truly come alive. Details of elegant gilded mirrors, historic chandeliers and indoor greenery transport guests back to the 1930s where sipping cocktails, fine dining and jazzing it up on the dance floor was the norm. Heidi and Frank’s innate authenticity and desire to recreate a European hotel escape allowed for their dream wedding to become reality.

Hotel Opening
Luxury Bedding Brand 'Parachute' Just Opened a Hotel in Venice Beach That Turns Guests Into Locals
Jake Kilroy
by Jake Kilroy

 

Parachute has famously put customers to bed in the coziest linens with their heads atop the softest pillowcases. The bedding company's founder and CEO, Ariel Kaye, was inspired to deliver luxury comfort to bedrooms across the country following a picturesque stay on Italy’s Amalfi Coast. There, after an exhausting day taking in the glories of the colorful seaside paradise, she crawled into bed and it was like sinking into dreams. It was the bed every traveler wishes for, the one they forever hope awaits them after an extraordinary day of hikes, bites, and rides. That’s why the woman who gave us the softest sleeping experience ever is taking things up a notch—by opening a hotel.

Villa Cora

Viale Machiavelli, 18, Firenze, 50125 Metropolitan City of Florence, Italy

 

Ever wonder what happens when creatives collaborate with some of their favorite people on the planet? Well, if they’re lucky, they end up with photos that make the experience look just as epic as it sounds. Overlooking the bustling city of Florence, Villa Cora has that dreamy Tuscan romance vibe down to a T. Once we discovered this incredible venue, we had a collective, “andiamo!” moment, and gathered a team of some of our favorite creatives to collaborate with us. Together we created a series of photos that celebrate this gorgeous Italian setting. 

Meanwhile, the vibrant interiors provided a stark contrast of bright colors and pure opulence. With a property that features so many eye-catching design elements, it can be a bit of a trick to capture photos that aren’t too busy, so our team decided to embrace a minimalist design strategy that shows off the architecture, grounds, and combination of beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces captured by KT Merry Photography. We brought in a few pops of flora for color and drama, and relied on the property to tell its own story as the setting of a fine romance.

Wedgewood Weddings Galway Downs

38801 Los Corralitos Rd, Temecula, CA, United States

 

As the leaves begin to transform into shades of amber and crimson and the air begins to cool, we can’t help but feel nostalgic for sweet summertime. We recently caught up with Leah Marie Photography about capturing all 242 acres of Galway Downs, an equestrian rich land in Temecula, completely transporting us back to those much needed sensations of summer.

This private estate, surrounded by lush rolling hills and major-league level wineries, comes together to create the perfect balance between traditional and contemporary. We’re not done just yet. Boasting high-beam ceilings, a lily pond, vintage succulent filled troughs, modern craftsmanship and seamless indoor-outdoor arrangements, this place truly holds up to be a jewel under the sun.
