Dreamy and moody, and filled with elegant details such as calligraphy and couture fashion and with a moody color palette of taupe, deep plum, silver, black, and teal, this inspiration board is stunning for a fall or winter wedding. We adore the timeless bohemian sophistication!
Kathleen describes her July wedding to Dan as “Kate Spade meets Charleston” and we have to agree! A timeless and chic color palette of pale pink and gold is both perfectly preppy and effortlessly romantic. After a ceremony at Georgetown University’s Dahlgren Chapel of the Sacred Heart, guests made their way to Arlington’s Army Navy Country Club for the elegant reception. Everlasting Flowers accented the classic beauty of the ballroom with low and lush ivory centerpieces, linens from La Tavola in the palest of blush, and beautifully coordinated chivari chairs from DC Rental with patterned cushions. Kathleen is resplendent in a Watters gown from Katherine’s Bridal (with Kate Spade shoes, naturally!), and her maids are gorgeous in Bill Levkoff. We are completely in love with the lovely images from Katelyn James Photography!
Magical and lovely, there may be no more peaceful setting than Atlanta’s tranquil Serenbe. The sustainable community was home to Chris and Megan’s gorgeous wedding, captured by the exceptional Melissa Schollaert Photography. Ashley Baber Weddings worked with Gloriosa to design a wedding that brought out the natural beauty of the surroundings, with greenery table runners, florals in shades of purple from lavender to violet, rustic wood tables, and chic modern touches such as the outdoor lounge area, sophisticated draping, and clean white calligraphy by MM Ink. Megan’s deep plum and garnet bouquet is the perfect complement to her effortlessly elegant gown from Bridals by Lori. We are spellbound by this beautiful soiree!
Lake Forest’s elegant Armour House was the perfect setting for Lynn and Han’s classic, elegant Illinois wedding. The garden’s picturesque gardens, complete with flowering trees and pond, was an angelic setting for the couple’s outdoor ceremony, and the stately interior, with its grand marble stairway and sun-filled garden room, made for the most lovely reception. ArtQuest worked with Lynn and Han to bring their sophisticated and classic vision to life in a whitewashed reception with shimmering gold. But fashion was the star of the day, and we are utterly in love with the fluttering BHLDN bridesmaids dresses and Lynn’s luscious Pronovias gown. Each and every image from Evan Hunt Photo is absolute perfection!
