Romantic Outdoor Wedding Inspiration

This romantic inspiration shoot from Ashley Seawell Photography has us swooning! Set at a beautiful, earthy-but-elegant equestrian estate in the South, the scene is bursting with soft lavender, pink, and yellow blooms in lush arrangements and single florals from Cote Designs. Woven into the tablescape is antique silver from York Cottage Antiques and scalloped gold china set atop vintage-look linens from Nuage Designs. We adore the lavender details like a simple boutonniere for the groom, wearing a gray suit from Lionel Smith, Ltd.; lavender cocktails; and lovely stationery with lavender accents that includes artwork by Katherine McCall. A structured gown from House of the Bride includes swaths of tulle for the ultimate in romantic attire. We are in love with everything about this gorgeous outdoor affair!

Whimsical Seaside Wedding

The beautiful New England seaside town of New Shoreham, Rhode Island, was the setting for Grace and Mark’s bohemian outdoor wedding. Held at the Spring House Hotel, bridesmaids wore navy gowns they chose themselves, while pretty bride Grace chose a Saja Wedding gown paired with metallic heels from J.Crew. Her loosely tied bouquet of standard roses, scabiosa pods, snapdragon, zinnia, dusty miller and seeded eucalyptus from Painted Rock Designs was reminiscent of the custom stationery she and Mark designed themselves. The indoor-outdoor reception took full advantage of the views, which guests spilling out onto the deck to enjoy the ocean breeze and cake from Aldo’s Bakery. We adore these photos from the always lovely Arielle Doneson Photography!

    Classic + Crisp DC Wedding

    A classic, elegant twist on Americana was the theme of Ginny and Matt’s DC wedding, and we love the crisp, pretty vibe of it all. Their ceremony was held at St. Patrick Catholic Church—the oldest parish in the district—which features gorgeous stained glass windows and a pretty stone exterior. Bridesmaids held to the simple, classic scheme in navy dresses from J.Crew, while Ginny wore a column style Mikaella gown from Betsy Robinson’s Bridal Collection paired with a cathedral length veil made by her mother. The reception at DAR Constitution Hall included more classic decor, including cream florals from The Enchanted Florist, enhanced with pops of greenery and gold details. We adore the combed icing on the cake by Pastry Xpo, which also features a whimsical wooden bride and groom on the top. Enjoy these lovely images from Marta Locklear!
