Splendid Wedding Send-offs

In recent years, the trend for a bride and groom to spend their wedding night eating, drinking and dancing into the wee hours with their guests has almost become an expectation. After parties are hard to say no to, especially when they’re filled with all your friends and family. Thus, it’s almost unusual to buck the trend and go the once traditional route of saying “adieu” to your guests at the end of the (gasp!) wedding. Here are a few of our favorite send-off styles that we found in combing the web for you. Enjoy!

Ivory Sparrow Weddings: Razan and Andy

We love weddings and we love our Ivory Sparrow brides! If you and your girls have worn our wraps, robes or flip flops, send us your wedding photos. We’ll feature them in all their lovely, unique glory (and make sure to include a couple snapshots of you donning your special Ivory Sparrow frocks)! Please email them to elizabeth@ivorysparrow.com.

Clearly meant to be, Razan and Andy sealed the deal at Torrey Pines Christian Church before dancing the night away at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel. With well thought out fuschia and violet details, as well as nods to their cultural heritage, the feeling of being surrounded by love from friends and family was surely the most memorable part of the day. Congratulations Razan and Andy!

In saying “I do!” Lindsay and Dave took the phrase “something blue” to a whole new level. Their gorgeous wedding in Massachusetts was complete with aqua details, a clear-topped tent and even a trolley! In looking at these photos, we’re sure you’ll agree: the thing that is most obvious and radiates through is the love these two have for each other. Congratulations Lindsay and Dave!

A Bridesmaid Garden Party: Part Two

We are pleased as punch to share with you Part Two of our Bridesmaid Garden Party Inspiration Shoot. We couldn’t have asked for a lovelier group of girls to model the perfect bridesmaid gift, Ivory Sparrow’s Sweet Bridal Body Wraps, and hope they had as much fun spending time in our soft, cozy wraps as we did taking photos of them frolicking in the garden.

Thank you again to Kimberly Hernandez Photography for participating in our first ever inspiration shoot and congratulations to Carla (above) who will be walking down the aisle August 11th!

A Bridesmaid Garden Party: Part One

We are thrilled to share with you the first of many inspiration shoots from Ivory Sparrow. Shot on a gloriously warm Saturday at a private residence in Escondido, Kim of Kimberly Hernandez Photography was the skilled eye behind the lens; she was such a joy to collaborate with and we cannot recommend her enough for any future wedding, baby or maternity shoots. Our beautiful models were none other than an actual bride and her bridesmaids. Carla (our future Mrs.) is getting married on August 11, so keep an eye out for photos from her big day after she says “I do” to her fiancé, Austin.

This is the first in a two part series. Stay tuned for part two next week!

Congratulations Manny and Ines!
