Green and orange is such a wonderful color scheme, and Nicole Ha did a fantastic job creating unique and organic florals for Natalie and Norm’s wedding (which is full of lovely details!), including floating flowers, wrapped stems, and a mix of low and high arrangements.

Romantic Italian Wedding Inspiration
The inspiration for this moody, romantic shoot by Erica Brenci of Les Amis Photo comes from the beautiful venue, Villa Ida Lampugnani, near Milan—and we absolutely see why! In keeping with the Art Nouveau period, referred to as Liberty Style in Italy, stationery by Cristiano Guerra of Princess Event Design + Wedding Planning takes its cues from the home’s intricate furnishings. To complement the white anemones and lisianthus in florals by Sofia and Cosetta of Il Profumo dei Fiori, the team at Princess Event Design + Wedding Planning incorporated blush pink, cream, and gold into the décor. Elegant table settings are like an extension of model Viviana’s ethereal Jenny Packham gown and glittery platform heels, and we’re swooning over the romantic hairpieces she incorporated! For a sweet ending, a simple cake embellished with pomegranates from Sweet Pastry Lab marks the final flourish. There are so many gorgeous images to swoon over—visit the gallery to lose yourself in them all!
Garden Party Bridal Inspiration
We’re swooning over these images from Arielle Doneson Photography that are filled with pastel goodness! From floral-motif stationery by Borrowed & Blue to well-loved antique pieces from Borrow Vintage + Eclectic Rentals, we adore every delicate detail. Shi Shi Events styled this gorgeous garden party-inspired look with fabulous flowers created by Molly Taylor Designs and pretty gowns from Something White—we love the simple scallops and sweet floral embellishments, as well as the mantilla lace veil. This entire shoot makes us feel like we’re in a sophisticated English garden, especially with the colorful desserts from Main Street Cupcakes—lovely!
Turquoise + Lavender Wedding Inspiration
Turquoise and lavender—the color and the herb—are beautifully bold in this sophisticated inspiration shoot from First Comes Love Wedding Photography. Styled at Vellum in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the table pops with the tropical hues, grounded by dark wood tables and brick walls. Bright stationery accented with aqua and plum stripes from Dooby Design pairs perfectly with the palette. An exotic printed table runner holds a garland centerpiece of purples and greens by PassionFlower, who also created the fabulous coordinating hairpieces for the brides. Elegant gowns from The Gown Shop Ann Arbor are stunning; their classic silhouettes are the perfect backdrops for the unique bouquets and hair flowers. We adore the uber-chic colorful elements of this fun shoot!
Pretty Pink & Gold
Frilly, girly, romantic… we’re head-over-heels in love with this inspiration shoot from Ashley Bartoletti Photography! The first hint of the glamour to come is in the pretty pink stationery accented with gold glitter from ALH Designs. Soft and lush flowers in shades of pink, green, and lavender by Robertson’s Flowers are a perfect complement to the gorgeous Cairnwood in Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania. Renee Patrone of Events by Renee pulled in gleaming gold accents, mercury glass, and mint julep cups to give the tablescape and desserts by Stephen Starr Events an unmistakable sparkle. And, of course, we saved the best for last: the amazing Watters gown with an ecru sash featuring a flirty feathery embellishment from Van Cleve Wedding Pavilion. There are too many sigh-worthy details to count—see them all in the gallery!
Glamorous Old World Bridal Inspiration
There’s nothing more mesmerizing than bridal fashions with Old World sophistication and gorgeous details, and these stunning images from Arielle Doneson Photography confirm that! Captured as a look book for Something White bridal boutique near Cleveland, Ohio, at the equally glam The Tudor Arms Hotel, these gowns and veils—especially all of the lovely lace—leave us drooling! We adore the vintage look of the surroundings, complemented by pieces from Borrow Vintage + Eclectic Rentals. Baci Designer created the stationery for this shoot, and oversaw the styling of the entire day. We feel as though we’ve been transported to another era!
Vintage + Colorful Outdoor Wedding Inspiration
We love this fresh approach to vintage wedding decor, with design by Chicago Vintage Weddings and images from Justine Bursoni! The woodsy setting is the perfect backdrop for bold-colored florals from Flowers by Stem; the brides peach and cream makeup by Karen Marie Salon is a neutral base for her classic strapless gown with unexpected details like rosettes on the bust and a bow at the base of the skirt. Vintage rentals and gold accents provide a touch of sparkle on the dark wood table set amongst the trees. Besides the lovely bride, our favorite part of this shoot is an amazing dessert table topped with ruffled icing cakes by Luscious Layers Bakery. Delicious! Drool over all of the beautiful details in the gallery!
Glamorous Bridal Floral Inspiration
Drop any plans you have today, because you’ll be staring at this inspiration shoot from Elisabeth Millay Photography! We love the cascading bouquet of pastel flowers, baby’s breath, greenery, lace, and feathers so much, and there are no words for the fabulous fresh flower belt, both from Rebecca Shepherd Floral Design. The vintage feel of this entire shoot is so glamorous, and the fluffy tulle gowns by Lazaro and Kelima K add even more drama. The perfect cap to this stunning setup? The couture look of the Beatrice Couture Designs hairpieces. We. Are. In. Love. with all of the beautiful images in the gallery!
Glamorous Jewel Tone Inspiration
Ahh, we love the rich colors in this jewel tone styled shoot from Chic to Chic Weddings and Christine Choi Photography! Set outdoors at Highland Springs Resort in Cherry Valley, California, the first thing we noticed was the lush purple, blue, and fuchsia flowers from The Flower Lab. Rich blue linens, gold Chiavari chairs from Star Event Productions, and sparkly chandeliers hanging from the trees up the romance factor. We adore the pearl barrette, from Handmade by Sara Kim, pinned in the long hair of model Achara Kirk, as well as the flowy tulle skirt of her gown from Simply Bridal. There’s so much to love in this stunning shoot!
1920s Art Deco Inspiration
This Art Deco wedding inspiration shoot from Spindle Photography is just absolutely stunning! Inspired by the 1920s, designers from Mariee Ami in Birmingham, Alabama, joined forces to create a sophisticated, sparkly backyard party. Cloth of Gold Flowers used a palette of mostly white with hints of green and gold and even white feathers for arrangements, while Uprising Custom Cakes created a blue confection with gold detailing to complement the theme. Elegant and intricate gold and silver table settings from Table Matters rounds out the look. But the crown jewel of the affair is the Jenny Packham gown—with gold accents, beading, and rhinestones—that’s breathtaking. Everything about this soiree is perfection, like a page out of The Great Gatsby!
Vintage + Romantic Inspiration
The effortless sophistication of this styled shoot by Jen Huang Photography leaves us wanting more! Antique floral china, lace linens, and gold touches courtesy of Borrowed Blu combine with softer fashion choices like a light gray suit and bohemian style beaded gown from Nearly Newlywed Bridal Boutique for a chic but casual affair. Garden blooms and wildflower-inspired bouquets by Sarah Winward of Honey of a Thousand Flowers give an elegant accent when mixed with silver platters of fresh vegetables and flickering candles; the watercolor invitation by Dear Jendo ties in seamlessly with the theme. We’re so in love with the bride’s coral lipstick and gorgeous curls tucked back at the base of her neck, styled by 10.11 Makeup. Ahh, vintage details and romantic styling—does it get any better? See all of the beautiful images in the gallery!
Cozy Coral + Turquoise Inspiration
There’s nothing more comfortable than hanging around your own super-stylish house, and that was the concept behind this collaboration between Laura Ivanova Photography and Jesi Hoolihan of The Snow White Effect! Vibrant citrus, bold coral-orange florals, and bright turquoise vases from Munster Rose Floral & Styling are the perfect counterpoint to the muted clothing. We love these sunny shots of inspiration!
Vintage Chic Engagement Session
Laine and Marty’s Victoria, BC engagement session was styled by one of their close friends, Jessica from Petite Pearl Events, and it’s just the perfect mix of sweet, chic, and vintage! These two lovebirds are marrying next summer in Italy, so what better to do than to create an engagement session filled with some of their hometown Victoria charm? The Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse was the gorgeous backdrop for the rustic fall shoot. I simply adore the lush florals in shades of coral, peach, and pink from Verbena Floral Design, the lovely lace table runner, and of course, Laine’s amazing dupioni dress from Alida’s Gowns. Sit back and enjoy the beautiful images from Eternal Reflections Photography!
Valentine’s Day Love Shoot
What better time to do a little love shoot than Valentine’s Day! Leanne and Gordon are an absolutely precious couple, and this whimsical and quirky Valentine’s engagement session in snowy Chicago suits them to a T. Their little table for two featured raspberry tarts, blooms in the palette of kisses, romantic ribbon and adorable cross stitch messages of love. Thanks to my lovely friends Jessie from Simply Jessie Photography and Kelly from Fleur for sharing!
Let’s Get This Party Started
While Nick and I were taking photos, our guests headed to the reception tent for the cocktail hour. They were supposed to gather around the rectangular pool — amidst round high top tables and mason jars of candles tied with red and orange ribbon — but the wet weather prevented that from happening. However, I heard they still had a pretty excellent time.

Lowcountry Bridal Portraits

Though set in the Lowcountry, the shoot evokes the romance and history of Europe, with the Old World textures of River Oaks and magical Ivy gown from Saint Isabel Bridal.
