Sparkling New York Castle Wedding – Rena and Sudip were married at Oheka Castle in Huntington, N.Y. on August 3. More than 400 guests attended this red and gold Indian ceremony. And calling all Taylor Swift fans: You might recognize this venue from its appearance in Swift’s “Blank Space” music video!

Elegant California Estate Wedding – Lisa and Derek were married at Il Palazzo Estate in San Clemente, Calif. on April 11. We love how they blended a white and blush color scheme with shimmering gold accents. And when it came time for the groom to decide what to wear, the choice was likely a simple one – he works for The Black Tux!

Phoenix, AZ

We featured Crystal and Ryan’s E-session back in October, right before their wedding.  Their photos were so amazing and full of personality.  I couldn’t wait to get their wedding photos from Kara, of Illuminated Moments, because I knew they would be just as awesome.  So without further ado, I am happy to show you their fantastic wedding:
