Colorful Floral Wedding Inspiration

Scottsdale’s El Chorro resort was a stunning backdrop for this whimsical styled wedding inspiration created by Victoria Canada Weddings and Events. Selecting a dramatic floral linen from La Tavola Fine Linen as their inspiration, they designed a garden soiree featuring bold patterns and vibrant florals by Carte Blanche Design. Elegant and eclectic details abound, including a hand-lettered vow board by Dear Sarah Design, a painted wedding cake by Ruze Cake House, and stylish lounge furniture from Prim Rentals. From the unique statement floral for the ceremony setup to the delicate blush gown from Bella Lily Bridal, not a detail was left unfinished, and we are swooning over the images captured on film by Elyse Hall Photography!

Modern NYC Wedding at the Rainbow Room

Manhattan’s iconic Rainbow Room was the setting for Sara and John’s classic New York City wedding. Surrounded by their family and friends, the couple tied the knot after almost a decade of dating with sweeping views of the NYC skyline as their backdrop. Their sophisticated evening of dinner and dancing began with a ceremony underneath an intricate branch chuppah from Spina with Sara’s grandfather’s tallit atop, and ended with her grandfather’s flawless rendition of “New York, New York” performed for the reception. A chic Sylvia Weinstock cake with fresh blooms complemented the lush florals in ivory, blush, and lavender, decorating the one-of-a-kind Rainbow Room. We are head over heels for every moment of this NYC soiree captured by Brklyn View Photography and captivated by the beautiful film from McKenzie Miller Films!

Austin Wedding at Villa Del Lago

Laura and Sebastian grew up in two different worlds—he from England and she from Alabama—so when planning their Austin wedding, the couple had a grand time combining their backgrounds in a fun, yet classic, way! The setting of Austin’s Villa Del Lago was perfect for their “English garden” wedding with a Southern dinner party atmosphere. STEMS Floral Design created natural and lush florals with hydrangea, roses, eucalyptus, and magnolia leaves that perfectly complemented the ladies’ royal blue Amsale bridesmaids dresses and Laura’s lovely Watters gown, and created a romantic atmosphere atop the tented reception’s elegant farm tables. The celebration was a complete melding of Laura and Sebastian’s cultures, right down to the day’s menu, which featured bangers and mash alongside fried quail with buttermilk ranch dressing. We’re simply spellbound by the timeless images captured by Jenna McElroy Photography!

Colorful Scottsdale Wedding

Dominique and Blake’s vision for their Scottsdale wedding was pure romance, and working alongside Jennifer Ellis of White House Design Studio, their ideas transformed into reality. The couple, dating since their sophomore year of college, were joined at the Omni Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Montelucia by family and friends who had watched their love blossom over the years. A vivid color palette of berry, wine, and ivory was selected to enhance the beauty of their desert setting, and White House Design Studio created arrangements overflowing with orchid, hydrangea, and magnolia leaves to festoon the ceremony arch and adorn the luxurious reception tables. In lieu of traditional place cards, guests received hand-calligraphed notes in ivory ribbon-wrapped boxes, the notes serving as a warm thank you from the couple for joining them to celebrate their special day. As always, Melissa Jill Photography captured each moment perfectly!
