Light and Airy Romantic Bridal Inspiration

I’d love to close my eyes and transport myself to a world where everything around me was as beautiful as this magical bridal inspiration captured by The Jacksons Photography. Taking inspiration from the gilded accents in the ballroom at The Westin Columbus, Leda of Events Held Dear wanted to play with movement and texture, and mixed pieces of glass, wood, linen, silk, and crystal in her design. From flowing silk fabrics to shimmering taper candles and cozy rugs, each detail was thoughtfully created to evoke a romantic and ethereal feel. Evergreen Flower Co. created arrangements of blush garden roses and greenery with an organic shape, so that the entire finished tabletop looks like one intricately designed centerpiece. The pop of deep blue taper candles was the perfect finishing touch! Each moment from the way the Anna Campbell gown floats across the ballroom floor to the smoke from the tapers as it envelops the table is absolute magic!

Sparkly + Chic Wedding in the Arizona Desert

Months of planning a beautiful outdoor wedding in the desert were almost for naught as thunderstorms threatened to derail Lindsay and Trevor’s Paradise Valley, Arizona wedding. A mere five minutes before the ceremony at Paradise Valley Country Club was scheduled to begin, the sky cleared and sun shined down upon their pretty pink, gold, and silver soiree! White House Design Studio and Ashley Gain Weddings and Events worked with the couple to design a whimsical and chic event full of subtle glam. From Adrianna Papell bridesmaids frocks to sparkly rose gold toppers from CV Linens, mixed metallic sequins set the scene. But nothing could upstage Lindsay, who donned a ruffled Lazaro gown we are head over heels for! Lindsay and Trevor are both Arizona State University alums, and the highlight of the reception was the ASU Marching Band, led by Sparky the mascot, celebrating the newly-married couple. Each image from the always-spectacular Melissa Jill Photography is drop-dead gorgeous!

  • Romantic + Colorful Winery Wedding

    Hang and Hao’s romantic wedding at Livermore, CA’s Murrieta’s Well has all of our favorite things: a colorful palette, personal touches, stunning fashion, and incredible images! Inspired by the vineyards surrounding the winery, the couple wanted an organic feel for their event, and Sachi from Delphinium Floral Design outdid herself creating lush arrangements of peonies, garden roses, and blushing bride protea. Crisp white calligraphy, hand-lettered by Hang, and vintage stamps dressed Minted agate invitations, and the adorable animal place card holders were spray-painted by the couple, adding a special charm to the table setting. Silk ties hand-dyed with organic elements such as tea and beet adorned the favors. We are completely spellbound by every image by Kate Anfinson!

    Clean and Classic Waterside Wedding

    Eleanor says “From the moment we got engaged, we realized it was most important that our wedding be classic, elegant, but crazy fun.” We couldn’t agree with her sentiment more! From Eleanor’s classic Peter Langner gown to the chic, nautical location of Narragansett, Rhode Island’s The Dunes Club, the wedding came together perfectly within their vision. Ellie and Tim infused personal details into every aspect of their nuptials. The ceremony was held at Brown University (Eleanor’s alma mater), Tim and his groomsmen wore custom ties from The Knotty Tie with anchors and the state of Wisconsin (to blend their East Coast and Midwest families), and the couple enlisted Kearsley Lloyd to create a custom monogram and Sharon Morgera to design their wedding map. Bridesmaids dresses by Monique Lhuillier and soft pastel florals by Stoneblossom echo the seaside setting. We are smitten with each image from Erin McGinn!
