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!

    Glamorous Southern Lakeside Wedding

    Since she was a little girl, Courtney had dreamed of her fairytale wedding day, and—in her words—her wedding to Jack at Georgia’s Ritz Carlton Lodge Reynolds Plantation was more magical than she ever could have imagined! The couple fell in love with the natural setting on Lake Oconee and from the moment they stepped onto the property, they knew it was the perfect location for their Southern wedding. They shared their vows underneath a gorgeous floral arch created by Designs by Kent, and then danced the night away to the tunes of Simply Irresistible underneath the stunning reception tent, which featured soft pink lighting, elegant white and gold china, and elegant centerpieces of rose, garden rose, and hydrangea set atop textured white linens. The night was capped off with a spectacular fireworks display—the perfect ending to the perfect day! Prepare to be spellbound by every beautiful image from Ashley Seawell Photography!

    Romantic + Vintage Country Club Wedding

    Rachel and Jacob’s vision was “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and, with a lot of love and a fabulous team of wedding pros, their wedding at Garrison, New York’s Highlands Country Club brought that dream to life! As English teachers, the couple named each reception table after a favorite book. Rachel’s stepmother, Gina Palmer, created illustrations and graphics for all of the stationery, table cards, and menus. Bernadette from The River Garden created romantic and natural florals—with olive leaf, peonies, snapdragons, anemones, and roses—to truly transform the space into a veritable indoor garden! There’s so much sweetness and light in each beautiful image from Nicole DeTone Photography!
