Bear Flag Farm

Bear Flag Farm, Stevenson Bridge Road, Winters, CA, United States



Get married surrounded by fields of lavender, take portraits in the orangerie, dine in the orchards, and dance under a canopy of stars at this gorgeous Northern California farm. Located about half an hour north of Napa, this Winters property is the perfect spot for a spring, summer or fall wedding if you’re on the hunt for a venue that’s got a real French garden party feel to it.

We recently sat down with owner Tina of Bear Flag Farm and talked all things labor of love about the property. If you like the idea of hosting your wedding in a small town in Northern California that’s just off-the-grid enough to feel totally charming, this could be your wedding spot.

The Joinery

244 Montague Road, West End, Queensland, Australia



Australia is known for cranking out some beautiful architecture and interior design, so it should come as no surprise that Australian weddings are equally stunning. This Brisbane wedding reception took place at a warehouse-style venue known as The Joinery. The couple combined their modern aesthetic with touches of vintage fashion and décor to create a setting that was a reflection of their personalities and an authentically Aussie style.

We recently got the details on this gorgeous Queensland wedding from photographer Alice Mahran. Read on for more about The Joinery and this bride’s heirloom wedding gown.

Prospect House

12745 Silver Creek Road, Dripping Springs, Texas



Creative design ideas reigned supreme at this Texas wedding. The inspiration behind the décor for the day was to develop spaces that felt completely different during each part of the wedding. What does that mean exactly? It means a ceremony framed by urns and a large installation overlooking the pastures. It means cocktail hour spent surrounded by lush greenery walls. It means all-white for all dinner décor, including gauzey white fabric draped overhead. It even means a game of late-night ping-pong.

Zoey and Aneri’s wedding at Prospect House in Austin’s Hill Country was nothing short of crush-worthy and we’d expect nothing less from Elyse and Katie of BW Theory working with photographer, Matthew Moore. This is a team that creates stunning design work in Austin, Philly and the tri-state Area. Jump on in for details from Katie and to see Matthew’s gorgeous snaps.

W Punta de Mita

W Punta de Mita, Bahía de Banderas, Mexico



If there’s one thing you instantly notice about W Punta de Mita upon arrival, it’s the colorful, bold and bright décor. Embracing the artistry of the indigenous Huichol people, the hotel’s many art installations and bold architectural flourishes give this resort a personality all its own. So, when we got wind of a wedding that embraced the décor and accented it through interesting lighting installations and bold floral décor, we had to hear more.

We caught up with photographer Ana Hinojosa  about the creative and lighthearted, celebratory spirit of this 3-day wedding weekend captured in her images. If you are on the hunt for a tropical destination with a waterfront view for your special day, this just might be the venue you've been searching for!

Spain Ranch

732 e 116th St, Jenks, Oklahoma, United States

 

Who says weddings have to be on Saturday afternoons? This Oklahoma couple decided to do things a little differently and opted for Sunday morning nuptials at Spain Ranch, a 44-acre property outside of Tulsa with a contemporary barn, horse fences, a pond and bison roaming the tree-covered property.

The massive A-frame barn set a sunny, romantic tone for the a.m. ceremony, complemented by bridesmaids in a rainbow of pretty pastels (men wore suspenders and bowties) and a low-key brunch following the ceremony. If we know one thing to be true, it's that this white-out barn will give you the warm-and-fuzzies inside.
