{Ivory & Blush Seaside California Wedding} Christina & Min

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

For my first wedding feature in awhile due to coming soon Baby Boy Koru, I picked an absolute beauty!  You'll enjoy the ocean views, the ivory & blush flowers & the stunning Bride wearing a beautiful wedding gown.
  Tikko Weddings shows us the beauty:

Christina & Min got married on May 25 at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel in Dana Point, California. The coastal retreat offers magnificent Pacific Ocean views & breezes.  An elegant ivory & blush palette with turquoise accents mirroring the sea enhanced the stunning setting.  At The Gazebo Lawn, a beautiful spot overlooking the Pacific Ocean & northern coastline, the Bride & Groom said "I Do!" in front of their family & friends.  After capturing newlywed moments on the lovely beach, a classic ballroom reception followed at The Plaza, also boasting ocean views.  Dinner, dancing & merriment was enjoyed by all in celebration of the new Mr. & Mrs!

My Favorite Moment:  The gorgeous Chinese dragon makes a grand appearance at the reception!

My Favorite Detail:  The flowers are beyond amazing, from the bouquets to the centerpieces.  

Congratulations, Christina & Min!

{bridal bouquets} single

When Brides think of single during wedding planning, they are most likely considering inviting their single guests with a date or embarrassing their single ladies with a bouquet toss.  Things could be changing!  Single may become a common word during wedding flower conversations.  More & more, I spy Brides carrying one single bloom for their bridal bouquet.  Hmmm, being single never looked so good!  

A single bloom bridal bouquet is certainly a budget-friendly choice.  & a stunning one!

{still standing} dream come true

I have been wanting & hoping & wishing & praying to write a post like this for what seems like forever . . .

I am so happy & excited to announce my husband & I are expecting a baby boy in July!  Words cannot even describe how over the moon we are about Baby Boy Koru.  It's a dream come true, & I count my lucky stars every day.

As most of you know, my journey towards parenthood has been long, winding & trying.  I last spoke of this journey about one year ago & I've been pretty mum since.  My silence wasn't because there was nothing to say.  Quite the contrary!  There was so much to say I could hardly put my experiences into a coherent post.  I hope to write about it someday, to remember the journey & to help others who may be experiencing something similar.  For now, all I can say is every step, every stumble & every fall was worth it.

It's not lost on me that this particular adventure is just beginning.  I won't breathe easy until Baby Boy Koru is safe, happy & healthy in my arms.  But my worries are merely a footnote in this journey.  I am truly enjoying every moment of my pregnancy, basking in its glory & wonder.  

What does this mean for Koru Wedding?  In a complete leap of faith last summer, I decided not to accept any 2014 weddings.  It didn't seem fair to compromise the time, attention & passion I devote to Koru clients & weddings because I was either hugely pregnant or juggling a newborn.  Thankfully, my decision was the right one since Baby Boy Koru will be here soon!  I will consider 2015 weddings on a case-by-case basis & I hope to be fully back in the wedding game by 2016.

As for Koru Wedding Style, I will do my best.  I'm sure most of you have noticed I have had trouble blogging & visiting other blogs regularly since the summer.  Now you know I had good reason!  From here on out, I will blog when inspiration strikes.  Hopefully, that will be fairly often!  No promises.

Koru Wedding is based upon the inspiration & celebration of new beginnings.  To me, that's always meant weddings.  Now I've expanded my horizons to realize Baby Boy Koru is a new beginning for my family, one that deserves my complete & full attention.  & so it goes!    

Thank you for sharing in my exciting news!

{Rustic Australian Wedding} Kirby & Jonathan

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Today's wedding is quite a treat- a darling, rustic affair in Australia.  It's the complete rustic, romantic package with a candlelit ceremony & intimate barn-like reception.  Not to mention a killer classic car or two!  Gold Hat Photography shows us the beauty:

Kirby & Jonathan were married on November 3 in Victoria, Australia at Emu Bottom Homestead.  The historical venue is surrounded by pretty gardens & rural countryside, perfect for a rustic wedding celebration.  The wedding day began with the Bride arriving at the venue in style, traveling in a vintage black beauty.  The marriage ceremony took place at The Slab Hut, a charming former farm worker's cottage lit by the soft glow of candlelight.  In this natural warmth, the Bride & Groom said "I Do!" in front of their close family & friends.  An intimate reception followed in The Woolshed, made of rough hewn beams & filled with candles, bunting, poms & clusters of flowers.  Here, the Bride, Grooom & their guests had a great time celebrating!

My Favorite Moment:  The newlyweds stealing a kiss in their cool vintage ride!

My Favorite Detail:  The venue is absolutely unique & awesome.

Congratulations, Kirby & Jonathan!
