Colorful Southwestern Wedding Inspiration

Today’s inspiration board is bringing to life a vibrant, bohemian wedding! Southwestern touches such as succulents and beading pair with a glamorous color palette of copper, turquoise, coral, and peach to echo the colors of sunset and the desert. We love the idea of using exotic blooms, such as protea, and adding a bit of color to your dress, like the hint of orange in this bride’s floaty Marchesa gown. We’re swooning over this fun and colorful palette!

    Rustic + Chic St. Louis Wedding

    Jess and Bassey combined neutral tones with a botanical feel for their St. Louis wedding. Kristin Ashley Events curated the event, pulling together bohemian details, such as a feather at each place setting, with organic elements like the unique baby’s breath reception chandelier. Bloomin’ Buckets created centerpieces in accents of pink and green to bring color to the earthy palette of the Forest Park Visitors Center. Each place setting was dressed with a calligraphy quote from the couple’s favorite band, Mumford and Sons. Sadly, Bassey lost his brother, who was to be his best man, three weeks before their wedding. To honor Imoh, the couple had tie bands engraved in his memory for their groomsmen. These two are so radiant with joy and love, even in the face of their recent loss, as shown in their gorgeous trailer from Sweet Tea Media and in the beautiful images from Heather Roth Fine Art Photography.

    Lowcountry Garden Wedding Inspiration

    Be still our hearts! There may be no city quite as charming as Charleston, with its horse-drawn carriages, historic city center, and seaside romance. This gorgeous editorial for Cottage Hill Magazine‘s Homecoming Issue brings to life the quintessential Lowcountry coastal feel. Set at RiverOaks Charleston, where Charleston’s signature Spanish moss abounds, abundant floral from Fern Studio and gorgeous hand-lettering from A Lettered Life bring a classic Southern garden wedding to life. Kaitlin Holland designed the scene, selecting a neutral color palette of the palest of pastels, bold gray linen, and lush greenery. A lettered backdrop for the cake table and , and chic bar cart styling add whimsy, as do the adorable flower girls and ring bearers running happily about! Ethereal gowns from Bella Bridesmaids and White Dresses Boutique billow in the soft Atlantic breeze, reminding us of the beauty that is this seaside venue. We are utterly smitten with each and every image from the amazing Buffy Dekmar!
