Classic Southern Winter Wedding

Robert and Mary Kathryn were married at Mary Kathryn’s childhood church in their hometown of Columbia, SC. They set out to create a winter atmosphere full of candlelight and warmth, and selected The Hall at Senate’s End, with its exposed brick walls and large patio, for their reception. Theirs was a celebration full of personal details and cherished family mementos. The bride’s watch was a wedding gift from her grandfather to grandmother, her rosary and lace handkerchief were gifts from her baptism, and the lace monogrammed tablecloth on the cake table was passed down from her great grandmother. Cricket Newman Designs created beautiful winter florals with lisianthus, seeded eucalyptus, hydrangea, and rosemary foliage. The snowy white blooms were perfect for the season! The bridesmaids’ mix and match dresses in shades of blue are exquisite. We are simply in love with every lovely detail in the images from Ashley Seawell!

Vintage + Gothic Wedding Inspiration

Set against the mythical backdrop of the Appalachian mountains, as a gorgeous spot in Asheville called Homewood, today’s inspiration shoot is equal parts vintage romance and gothic glamour. A vintage gown, dyed the palest of lavender by LWD Couture was the start of a positively regal bridal look. A cathedral veil and crown headpiece completed the ensemble. Vintage calligraphy by 7 Ton Design + Letterpress Co., keys, taper candles, custom-designed sparklers from Susie Saltzman, and the dark wood of the venue enhanced the beauty of the scene, created for the aptly named Fabled Gatherings Workshop. Florals by Floressence Flowers in rich shades of burgundy and coral bring a unique spin to traditional fall colors. Every image from Jameykay and Arlie Photography exudes regal romance!

    Glamorous Opera House Wedding

    Micaela and Mike share a love of music and fashion, and their St Louis wedding pays homage to both! Micaela and her bridesmaids are the epitome of glamour! Micaela paired a Jasmine Couture gown and Miss Mia Jewelry shoulder necklace. Her maids shine in blush beaded gowns from Adrianna Papell, Betsy & Adam, and JS Collections. The gorgeous Peabody Opera House, with its sweeping staircases, picturesque chandeliers, and ornate ceilings, was home to their reception, which featured modern black and gold tables and floral from Elegance in Bloom adding to the striking setting. Accompanying the elegant accents were the couple’s own quirky touches—hot sauce bottles for escort cards and a Star Wars grooms cake. Each beautiful image from Laura Ann Miller had us at hello!

    English Countryside Romance

    Hampshire offers up some of the most stunning views of rolling fields and tree lined horizons and Bonhams Barn fit the bill perfectly for this English countryside inspiration designed by The Wedding Stylist. Sarah of Floribunda Rose created stunning florals with mocha dahlias and gorgeous British foliage, apples on stems, ripening berries and soft ferns. Even the deserts gave their nod to the rustic, countryside setting with fresh local berry tartlets & trio of wedding cakes by Abi Anna Cake Designs. We love the classic touches such as antique cut crystal vases, spools with hand-lettered cotton paper at each place setting, and beautiful trestle table. Each image from Natasha Hurley Photography is absolutely lovely!
