The vibrant blooms of springtime were the inspiration for today’s gorgeous shoot by the talented Janie Medley of The Bride’s Cafe. An abundance of lush flowers from Flower Muse—including tulips, poppies, ranunculus, garden roses, and anemones—graced the gorgeous bouquets, flower arrangements and floral crowns created by The Bride’s Cafe. We can’t decide which of the incredible bouquets is most gorgeous! Shamara, a 2016 bride-to-be, is utterly resplendent in gowns from Bella Bridesmaids, and we are simply in love with each image from Love By Serena—enjoy all of the swoon-worthy floral inspiration!
Oh how we adore each and every little morsel of this stunning inspiration shoot from the Chapel Designers workshop in Santa Barbara! With a classic palette of rose gold, cream, peach, and burnt coral, the tablescape—designed by Nancy Liu Chin Designs with flowers from Florabundance—is pure elegance. Romantic hydrangea, stock, roses, and ranunculus come together in a warm and inviting mix of low and high arrangements. One vessel features a timeless composite rose, so named because a single stem is surrounded by layers of wired petals, giving the appearance of a giant rose. Such a refined and timeless variation on a classic! With its long lace sleeves and fluffy silhouette, Claire Pettibone‘s Peace gown is the perfect complement to the elegant table, and delicate china from Small Masterpieces and rentals from Classic Party Rentals complete the setting. We are completely in love with each image from Diana Marie Photography!
We love this fresh take on nautical style in weddings! Pale pink and gray stationery from Suite Paperie is still nautical-chic, but in a softer presentation than crisp navy and red. Dulce Dreams Events directed a stunning shoot filled with soft blooms from L’Oasis that fit right into the soothing color palette. With images from Alexis June Weddings and Cyrience Photography on a gorgeous old-school sailboat at Maritime Parc, we just can’t get enough of this chic and sophisticated setting! Staying true to the theme, Madison Lee’s Cakes used real seashells for the molds on the cake, and brown sugar created the illusion of sand. The model’s intricate GEMY by Gemy Maalouf gown is stunning! We’re in love with this shoot from top to bottom—see every last detail in the gallery!
There is so much gorgeous inspiration in this collaboration shoot between Kristyn Hogan and the talented team at Historic Cedarwood, and we love it all! Amber Housley created the lovely floral stationery and helped direct the styling of this bridal party tea in the garden. Eclectic linens from Urban Outfitters ground the tables for a collection vintage dishware and vases on top, filled with bold blooms and some of the prettiest teacups we’ve ever seen! The bridal party sipped pink Champagne from Le Grande Courtage while playing dress-up in amazing gowns from The Bride Room and accessories by Beatrice Couture Designs styled by Opulent Couturier. And aren’t you just in love with the playful side pony styled by Jessica Jones? Run, don’t walk, to the gallery to soak up all of the 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!
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!
If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you may have seen that last week I was lucky enough to be able to attend an absolutely lovely brunch in New York hosted by Minted to celebrate the launch of several fabulous new products! The Little Owl was just the right size for our group, and the venue was only highlighted by the absolutely adorable decor styled by Hank + Hunt and Minted. The peach and mint brunch featured a precious dessert table with pinwheel background (love!), coordinated bunting and paper mobiles, and decor from the brand-new Matthiola line designed by Moglea for Minted. Oh, and on top of the wonderful new decor lines (meaning: you can have this look for your next party!), Minted is introducing letterpress invitations and fabulous luxe paper options. Thanks to Minted for a fabulous event—see it all in the gallery!
This gorgeous styled shoot has it all: an absolutely stunning gown from Carine’s Bridal Atelier, Valentino d’Orsay pumps, and the simply breathtaking setting of Keswick Hall at Monticello near Charlottesville, Virginia. The rolling green hills provide a lush backdrop for bold pink and green blooms in bouquets and centerpieces created by Pat’s Floral Designs. We are head over heels for the classic Southern charm that Just a Little Ditty created in this beautiful setting, and the gorgeous images from Jen Fariello Photography!
Photographer Caroline Tran calls this Saddlerock Ranch inspiration shoot—complete with a dreamy tabletop covered in driftwood, protea and colored glass—”easily one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever shot.” It’s no wonder this Malibu, California shoot is one of our favorites of the year! Caroline teamed up with Utterly Engaged magazine and So Happi Together to craft this uber-creative shoot, which was also part of one of the photographer’s recent workshops. We’ve fallen for the eclectic, mismatched vintage seating surrounding the long farmhouse table, provided by Found Vintage Rentals, and the ruffled ombre cake by A Wish and A Whisk. Oh, and the zebras! Who could resist wedding inspiration that comes with zebras?!
This sweet and simple but oh-so-elegant inspiration shoot from Rylee Hitchner Photography features a less-is-more vibe that we adore. It’s no wonder this is a favorite from 2012! From the French-inspired stationery by Neither Snow to the loosely gathered green and white bouquets by Amy Osaba, we’re in love. Jessica Sloane Event Styling & Design pulled together an afternoon Paris affair that’s big on understated sophistication, just like the bride’s Badgley Mischka gown. Vintage silver accents from Southern Events Party Rental Company provide subtle sheen paired with light blue and gold table settings and a lovely, pearlized cake from Dreamcakes Bakery. Beau, oui?
Ahhh. This styled shoot is frothy and girly and just a breath of fresh air—which is great, because we’re left nearly breathless by the gorgeous styling from Maine Seasons Events and the stunning blooms from Floral Fauna. Turquoise milk glass, gold, and tons of pink work together to create the fabulous tabletop decor. And those custom ruffled swags on the tables? We’re in love! The simple texture of the cake from Nothing Bakes Like a Parrott shimmers thanks to exquisite gold detailing, and we adore the letterpress stationery by Gus & Ruby Letterpress and hand-calligraphed by Neither Snow. The models’ gowns from LulaKate look like dresses straight out of a fairy tale—which pretty much sums up why this shoot is one of our favorites of the year! We hope these oh-so-pretty images from Corbin Gurkin Photography make your day like they made ours!
Today’s shoot is not your normal fairytale. While many girls picture weddings inspired by Cinderella, we’re absolutely head-over-heels for this shoot inspired by the lost boys of Peter Pan! Dream catchers, stunning bridal gowns, and outstanding personal styling help bring the fun spirit of the lost boys to this shoot. The color palette was inspired by rainbow ice cream, which Petal Pixie did a phenomenal job of incorporating into floral arrangements that popped against the Utah desert backdrop. If you love the imagination of the lost boys, you’ll love this gorgeous shoot by Alixann Loosle Photography!
Today’s Friday Flowers is pure sophisticated elegance! Working with the beautiful setting of Scottsdale’s Country Club at DC Ranch, Petal Pusher and Stephanie Fay Photography created a vibrant tabletop and dessert table in shades of deep fuchsia, royal blue, and gold. We adore all of the elegant touches, including calligraphy menus by LittleOwl Letterpress and gorgeous flowing chair covers from Wildflower Linen, and are completely over the moon for the embossed gold cake created by Classic Cakes and Confections (and the sparkly dessert table backdrop too!). Prepare to swoon over all of the glamorous details!
It’s peony season, so why not dedicate this week’s Friday Flowers to those gorgeous ruffled blooms? Little did I know that while writing this post I’d experience shortness of breath, random giggles, and rapid heart beat. There’s something about peonies that just makes me positively giddy. What is it about these blooms that make them so sought after for brides across the world? Whatever it is, perhaps you should have some sort of smelling salts handy to revive you after you get a glimpse of this collection of fabulous florals!
Enchanting and romantic, from the moment I set my eyes on this ethereal shoot inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream, I haven’t been able to look away! LeAnna Clark of Details by LeAnna brought the magic of Shakespeare to life with stunning details – lush florals from Anthomanic (including a fabulous floral crown!), letterpress stationery, an antique lace tablecloth and candelabra centerpiece, and the most gorgeous location, Fredericksburg, Virginia’s Gari Melchers Home and Studio at Belmont, an artist’s home full of iron gateways and endless flowering gardens. I’m completely captivated by these beautiful images from Charlotte Tittle Photography!
When I was growing up, there were 3 crabapple trees that grew along our driveway. One of my absolute favorite times of the year was when all three of them were full of white and pink blooms, saturating the air with their sweet smell. It was a sad day when the last of the tiny blooms fell to the ground and I realized I’d have to wait another whole year before enjoying them again. Ever since then, I’ve never been able to get enough of flowering spring trees, whether crabapple, cherry, dogwood, or apple, and now I absolutely adore the idea of using these sweet blooms as florals for a wedding!
I couldn’t be happier about all the prettiness we’ve got today, and wait ’til you see what we’ve got now! This gorgeous styled shoot was created by Imoni Events who incorporated personal and creative details with stunning florals by Petal Pusher. I was swoooning over the colorful palette of pinks and peaches with bright pops of tangerine and I absolutely adore the Southwestern goodness in the backdrop of Royal Palms Resort and Spa. Climbing vines, gorgeous fountains, and old trees? Yes please! Oh how I love this whole shoot and all the photos by Melissa Jill Photography. Hope you enjoy it too!
We have such a treat in store for you today! Phebe from Making Me Events sent over the most lovely shoot filled with vintage plates, ribbons, doilies, tea cups, sugar, spice, and everything nice. She has gathered over 1000 vintage and retro plates and has featured some of her favorites in this shoot. I love the delicately glam color palette of pinks and golds and seriously, how yummy do those macaroons look? The styling by Making Me Events is to die for and these photos by Henry Photographers are absolutely lovely!
So excited today to show off the last two Inspired Creations Contest submissions from this year’s Indie Wed! First up, a beautiful “salvage chic” ceremony with whimsical ribbon details and gorgeous florals from Kio Kreations and Hazelton Photography! The ladies used repurposed architectural posts, ribbons and lush floral to create an unforgettable arch focal point. To accompany this lush salvaged arch the bride’s bouquet was made of fresh flowers, berries, and ribbon flowers and guest chairs were tied with ribbon streamers.
