Rustic + Elegant Mountain Wedding

Clair and Michael chose the intimate setting of North Carolina’s The Farm at Old Edwards Inn for their August destination nuptials. Nestled in the magnificent Blue Ridge Mountains, the inn provides panoramic views and an elegant, earthy atmosphere. The couple worked with Floressence Flowers to design a ceremony and reception that accented the breathtaking surroundings. A breezy tent adorned with gold chandeliers and a chic aisle garland played host to the heartfelt ceremony, where guests were welcomed with a sign hand-lettered by Clair’s best friend and bridesmaid, Lauren. After a cocktail hour (complete with a boat of beer!), guests were ushered into the barn where the rustic setting was elegantly appointed with gracious farmhouse tables, taper candles, ivory blooms, gold mirrors, and greenery galore. Clair and Michael are Kentucky natives, and Clair surprised Michael with a Kentucky groom’s cake surrounded by Kentucky’s best bourbon! We have fallen head over (Badgley Mischka) heels for each beautiful moment captured by Lang Thomas Photography!

Colorado Mansion Wedding Inspiration

Only two words can describe today’s amazing Colorado mansion inspiration styled by Sarah of Ever So Chic Events: rich and dreamy! The Highlands Ranch Mansion was the perfect backdrop for this fresh take on elegant floral design. Inspired by the idea of chandeliers resting on a dinner table and armed with stunning crystal pieces from Artistry Events and Design, Sarah set out to create a unique and intriguing setting with a mix of whimsical watercolors and floral patterns. The mansion’s solarium’s mint walls and stately fireplace paired beautifully with supple floral print linens from La Tavola and gilded place settings from Event Rents. Rich hues of pink and red blooms by Flowers Forever Design, leafy greens, and a sea of pillar candles in the fireplace added glimmering lighting and vibrant pops of color. We adore all of the glamorous touches, right down to the two spectacular lounge areas! Prepare to fall in love with the images from Carrie King Photographer!

Classic + Traditional Ballroom Wedding

Lauren and Raymond both hail from large Italian families, so their East Meadow, NY wedding was no small affair! Their shared love for their heritage was incorporated throughout their reception at The Carltun, from the Italian menu to the vintage map of Italy re-purposed as escort cards and Italian love notes hand-calligraphed by Eliza Gwendalyn. The couple chose not to see each other before their ceremony, and recalls that “walking down the aisle and seeing each other for the first time was something so special that we will never regret.” We know that the moment of seeing Lauren in her elegant and sophisticated Monique Lhuillier gown will be forever in Raymond’s memory! Lauren and Raymond worked with Pedestals for the classic ballroom reception, featuring hydrangea, sahara roses, and glimmering candlelight. Each moment captured by Michelle Lange Photography and NST Pictures is perfection!
