Elegant Tampa Ballroom Wedding

Elegance and romance were the theme of the day for Kara and Lance’s winter black tie wedding at Tampa’s The Vinoy Renaissance. The couple were married on a gorgeous Florida day at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, one of the most stunning cathedrals in the area. After their traditional ceremony, guests moved to the Vinoy’s Mezzanine for cocktails overlooking the water and a reception in the grand ballroom where amber uplighting created a magical display in the stately hall. Events in Bloom created centerpieces in neutral tones of ivory and soft peach with roses, peonies, ranunculus, and stock. Kara and Lance opted for a sweetheart table, and it was a true centerpiece of the reception, with glimmering sequin linens and an elegant garland centerpiece of roses and eucalyptus. A sophisticated palette of warm metallics carried throughout, from beaded Adrianna Papell bridesmaids dresses to champagne bottle place card holders. Of course, it’s the personal touches that make a wedding special. Guests signed wine corks in lieu of a guest book, and Lance—a baseball player—wore Batman cleats in his Major League debut, and donned a special gift from Kara, monogrammed Batman cuff links. We are absolutely smitten with every detail, from Kara’s lace Girl with a Serious Dream dressing robe to the sparkler exit and vintage Rolls Royce. Prepare to fall in love with every beautiful image captured by Justin DeMutiis Photography!

    Romantic Miami Garden Wedding

    Jared and Lauren’s wedding was a self-described “giant garden party” at the stunning Miami Beach Botanical Garden. Though the Florida weather can be temperamental, the couple was greeted with gorgeous, sunny skies for their outdoor soiree. Jared is Jewish and Lauren Latin Catholic, so their ceremony—officiated by Lauren’s Godparents—was entirely customized to include traditions from both. The couple said their vows beneath a beautiful chuppah from Ever After Floral Design, played Ave Maria during the mantilla ritual, and broke the glass before their first kiss. The whimsical reception featured an eclectic seating area with settees and chairs from The Salvage Snob, a honey cake with rosewater buttercream frosting from Bake Bar, and a bourbon bar and cigar roller, a must-have in Cuban culture. Every moment is magical in the images from Merari Photography!

    Romantic Spring Mountain Bridal Inspiration

    Magic happens every time I am reunited with my amazingly talented friend Brandi of Alexis June Weddings, so when we both found ourselves in gorgeous Asheville, NC last month, it was the perfect opportunity to take advantage of the stunning weather to create a beautiful bridal editorial! Homewood is nestled within the historic Montford neighborhood, and the English stone manor set the stage. Gossamer gowns from Wildflower Bridal fluttered in the spring breeze, and beribboned bouquets from Flora Asheville accented the graceful designs by Anna Campbell, Ti Adora, Blush by Hayley Paige, and Willowby by Watters. Hughes Hair Design styled the gorgeous Brooke and Hannah with soft, loose locks and rosy lips and dramatic eyes by Dollbox Productions completed the elegant look. Romantic and sweet, these are flawless looks for any spring bride!

    Chic + Coastal Wedding Inspiration

    Today’s gorgeous inspiration shoot, designed by Kelly Hancock Events, was inspired by the most stunning bridesmaids dresses by Dessy! The gorgeous mix and match gowns in coastal tones evoked the feeling of the ocean and sand, and thus a coastal theme was born. The classic silhouettes, pretty pleats, and textured fabrics in the dresses influenced the tabletop and other decor, with gauzy ribbons, a debossed wedding cake from Hands On Sweets, and subtle nautical details including driftwood, rope, and seaglass. FH Weddings & Events kept the florals loose and wild with protea, roses, oats, and greenery that echoed the oceanside surroundings of Tampa Bay WatchLasting Luxe Hair & Makeup glammed up the ladies in their flattering Dessy dresses. The comfy and chic styles even have pockets (I’m a sucker for dresses with pockets)! We’re head over heels for all of the fabulous details in this shoot from Every Last Detail for Aisle Society, captured by Caroline & Evan Photography!

    Wedding Inspiration from Aisle Society

    There are some days that are simply perfect, and today is one of those days, because at long last, we are debuting Aisle Society to the world, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to share the absolutely gorgeous Aisle Society official brand shoot that I styled with Lauren of Every Last Detail and a dream team of Chicago’s best wedding pros at downtown’s most fabulous wedding venue, Chez. Together with the ladies from Estera Events, we set out to create an event that would showcase all of the things that Aisle Society represents: fun, friendship, community, and of course, utterly beautiful wedding inspiration! Dramatic draping from Drape Kings was the centerpiece of the room, swathed along the ceiling and leading to a ceremony altar flanked by simple but show-stopping eucalyptus arrangements from Fleur. In the rest of the details, we bathed the whitewashed space in color! Our gorgeous ladies donned frocks from Bella Bridesmaids and David’s Bridal in shades from blush to dusty blue and flowing Truvelle and Sarah Seven bridal gowns, carrying bouquets of vibrant summer blooms. The modern but elegant tabletop features glimmering sequin linens and rose gold chargers and amazing confetti popper menus from Sarah Drake Design. I’m brimming with excitement for you to watch the video of the day by the insanely talented Nicodem Creative (I dare you not to get goose bumps!) and see every gorgeous image from Alexis June Weddings!
