Delicate + Romantic Mansion Wedding

Madeline and Nick chose the historic Patrick Haley Mansion in the Chicago suburb of Joliet for their lovely summer wedding. The grounds of the stately mansion provided a beautiful backdrop for their garden ceremony, and the impeccable ballroom housed their classic reception, in a palette of ivory, gold, and pink. Anthony Gowder Designs mixed pretty pink roses and delicate white hydrangea with floating candles in glass vessels to line the tabletops, which featured elegant gold-rimmed china. Madeline’s Maggie Sottero gown and BHLDN headpiece is effortlessly chic, and we adore each and every image from Kristin La Voie Photography!

Classic English Garden Wedding Inspiration

The beautiful mint and gold tones and lavish ambiance of Fetcham Park’s Queen Anne Mansion served as inspiration for this gorgeous English garden wedding shoot, styled by the lovely Wedding Sparrow and Emma Wyatt. A light and airy pastel color palette, exquisite lace gowns by David Fielden from Exquisite Bridal Couture, and whimsical, elegant stationery from Moira Design Studio echo the beauty of the Surrey countryside. Bo Boutique Flowers created centerpieces of pale pink, cream, and yellow dahlias, astilbe, garden roses, and eucalyptus to complement the warm and sunny ballroom. A four-tiered Rosalind Miller cake is a charming nod to stacked vintage hatboxes, and a classic Bentley bedecked with astilbe, eucalyptus, and blackberries served as the get-away car. We are completely in love with the beautiful images from Emma Wyatt Photography!

Modern + Chic Arts Center Wedding

Meg and Matt were married on a gorgeous fall day in Cambridge, MA at the lovely Multicultural Arts Center. The couple were instantly charmed by the historical venue with its gorgeous high mint and gold ceiling and urban, sophisticated feel. With the color palette of the venue as their inspiration, they selected florals from Nature’s Design in neutral white and ivory, with wild touches such as branches, berries, and succulents. Meg’s bridesmaids each selected a beaded or sequin metallic dress and—paired with her chic Nicole Miller gown—the effect is spectacular! Meg’s father home-brewed 40 growlers of beer, which he drove to Massachusetts from Iowa, inspiring the reception’s “I-90 Beer Bar”, and he also collected vintage beer glasses, which were served at the bar and doubled as favors. We love all of the couple’s personal touches such as a playful Jenga guest book, feather place cards, and cannolis in place of a traditional cake! We adore each lovely image from George Rivera!

    Classic Burgundy + Blush Fall Wedding

    We fell in love with Kristen and Andrew’s Texas fall wedding at Ashton Gardens the moment we set eyes upon it! The warm color palette of burgundy, crimson, blush, and navy is perfect for autumn, and the decor was inspired by the subtle touches of vintage lace and beading on Kristen’s gorgeous Anna Campbell gown. Stems of Dallas created romantic bouquets and centerpieces of burgundy dahlia, blush roses, black willow eucalyptus, and hydrangea, and decorated the centerpiece of the ballroom, a dessert table with a gorgeous cake from Sugar Bee Sweets, with fresh fall flowers. The Valeries of Valerie and Valerie Events made sure the day went off without a hitch, and we’re head over heels for the images from Tracy Enoch Photography!
