    Snowy + Colorful Wedding Inspiration

    It’s the season for wintery white weddings, and this stunning shoot from Soiree Weddings & Events has us swooning! Flowers and fruit on the stationery from Dear Ampersand give a light and airy touch. We’re totally crushing on the sophisticated details like the rose-colored vintage-style sofa. Loosely gathered florals mixed with succulents and greenery from Flowers At Will, citrusy orange and turquoise details, and pops of fresh color from clementines add unexpected hues that we just love against the snowy backdrop of the Idaho mountains. And with all of the snow-white details surrounding this setting, we’re especially in love with the cake from Amaru Confections, which is an untraditional ecru color that sets it apart perfectly. Spend some time scrolling through all of these gorgeous images from Two Bird Studio!

    Chic Wine Country Wedding

    We are simply dazzled by Devin and Ryan’s gorgeous Napa Valley wedding, held at a lush private estate in the heart of wine country! Lush spring blooms, olive branches, and details in lovely peach and green hues make this affair classic and pretty, all thanks to the expertise of Napa Valley Custom Events by Sharon Burns. Even the invitations from Foglio Press incorporate the olive leaf theme. Devin’s romantic strapless gown and filmy peach bridesmaids dresses are lovely at the outdoor ceremony, which was also punctuated with peonies and other exotic blooms from Julie Stevens Design. These images from Julie Kay Kelly Photography are just brimming with beautiful details, and we love them all!

    Elegant Austin Ranch Wedding

    Elizabeth and Robert perfected rustic elegance with their wedding at Camp Lucy, in Dripping Springs outside of Austin, Texas. We just love the sweet, pastel colors against the woodsy venue–gorgeous lush blooms from Bouquets of Austin, pale blush bridesmaids dresses from Monique Lhuillier, and lots of lace on Elizabeth’s Enzoani gown and cathedral veil from Bridal Boutique. We’re drawn to these pretty photos from Photography by Vanessa, especially with details of the tri-fold ceremony programs by Shine Wedding Invitations and a cake by Coco Paloma Desserts festooned with fresh blooms. Elegant rentals from Whim Event Rentals mix with iron pieces from Mancino Iron Rentals, which reinforce the romantic, rustic theme. Says Elizabeth of their “gorgeous” wedding, “We wanted a romantic and intimate hill country wedding. It felt like a perfect Texas weekend.” We couldn’t agree more!
