Have you seen the movie yet?! It’s no wonder that the wedding world has been going gaga for Gatsby ever since the previews came out. The glamour, the elegance, and the drama are the perfect inspiration for the bride who wants to go all out on her big day. We’re crazy about the sequins, feathers, and gold that make up this decadent art deco look!

This Art Deco wedding inspiration shoot from Spindle Photography is just absolutely stunning! Inspired by the 1920s, designers from Mariee Ami in Birmingham, Alabama, joined forces to create a sophisticated, sparkly backyard party. Cloth of Gold Flowers used a palette of mostly white with hints of green and gold and even white feathers for arrangements, while Uprising Custom Cakes created a blue confection with gold detailing to complement the theme. Elegant and intricate gold and silver table settings from Table Matters rounds out the look. But the crown jewel of the affair is the Jenny Packham gown—with gold accents, beading, and rhinestones—that’s breathtaking. Everything about this soiree is perfection, like a page out of The Great Gatsby!

Stacy and Frank took cues from their lush surrounding when planning their colorful Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, wedding. Pink silk bridesmaids dresses paired with colorful bouquets from Liz Stewart Floral Design set the tone for a vibrant affair at TPC Sawgrass club after a cathedral ceremony. Once there, guests were wowed with a bold pink backdrop, where JC The Cuban Roller prepared cigars and The Voltage Brothers of EastCoast Entertainment heated up the dance floor. The white cake with cascading sugar flowers from Classic Cakes pulled in some of the same design elements as Stacy’s breathtaking strapless gown. We love the citrus hues in these pretty photos from Brooke Images, perfect for a summer wedding! Kudos to the couple and First Coast Weddings for coordinating such a gorgeous affair!

We think Erin and Constantine are absolutely adorable, and so is their engagement session shot by Troy Grover Photographers! The couple started with oysters at Shuck Oyster Bar in Costa Mesa, California, before wandering around The OC Mart Mix laughing, smiling, kissing, and just being in love. What a wonderful way to celebrate their engagement!

It’s just a fact that everything is bigger in Texas, and Katy and Cort’s wedding is definitely big—on style, sophistication, and elegance. A beautiful ceremony at Saint Mary Cathedral gave way to one heck of a reception at The Driskill in Austin. We love all of the cream, taupe, and gold details in the decor, which complement the pale Amsale bridesmaids dresses from Bella Bridesmaid and the soft bouquets and arrangements by Last Petal. Katy’s gown, Emmaline by Vera Wang, is a jaw-dropper, with swaths of sheer fabric wrapped around the bodice and skirt. Soft details in paper goods by Letterpress Finesse lend a little color, while the lovely cake by The Driskill gets its interest from textures of white. We always love images from The Nichols, but this time the photography duo outdid themselves, capturing every detail of this fab day, which Lauren Carillo of Something to Celebrate Wedding & Event Coordination helped pull off. We want it all!
