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!

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 Watch. Lasting 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!

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!
