Love this pairing – red and gold is tried and true but the ochre is stunning and unexpected!

Fall evokes the dreamiest of color palettes and also some of the most innovative pairings, we think. Brittany and Adam married near the tail-end of the fall season where society’s color palette has started gravitating away from oranges and bright reds into deeper tones. Darker reds and moodier colors like their choice of burgundy and navy blue are spot on for this time of year. We love how Elle and Jaye Events transformed JW Marriott Las Vegas into a romantic, fall wonderland with burgundy, gold, and navy blue woven together. With Susie and Will and all of the vendors strutting their best stuff for Brittany and Adam’s wedding, the result was exceptionally beautiful.
Almost instantly, a wedding in Washington, DC has visions of ultimate grandeur. Jen and Nick wed in the early spring at the Four Seasons and they left no stone unturned when it came to the ins and outs of their wedding design. Jen’s favorite blooms are the ever-stunning and lush magnolias and with that color inspiration as their jumping point, they coveted a white/ivory and green wedding with gold accents. Florist Amy from Amy Lauren Floral Designs expressed and continued the color palette by using sumptuous white peonies and white roses along with the glossy magnolia leaves. This wedding has too many impeccable elements to it, both in design and in personality. We’re just glad that Kristen Gardner captured all the splendor in full!
Janine and Mike chose Woodbridge Township’s stunning Ariana’s Grand for their reception venue, and the venue was perfect for their clean and ethereal wedding vision! To keep their wedding timeless, Flowers by Bernard filled their reception with swaths of greenery and mixed metals, accented by succulents and acrylic elements for a modern touch. Janine’s late grandmother was named Rosalie, and they honored her by sprinkling roses throughout the arrangements. We are swooning over every gorgeous images from Stephanie Sunderland, and the spectacular wedding day video from NST Pictures!
When you have a sublime location like Norman Farms ready to utilize at your fingertips, taking advantage of it and all of its natural delights are at the top of the list. Illustrious vendors like Fiona Louise Design and Something Minted had a blast foraging around the massive 28-acre property to beautifully bring this farm-to-table inspired shoot together. The art of table setting was a large inspiration for the day; for shoot designer and venue owner Fiona, welcoming loved ones meant breaking out the nicest wares and florals and setting up a grand table for gathering. For this shoot, an herb bouquet with mint and rosemary, blackberries, quince, pears, and apples were shared fresh from the grounds. A hearty loaf of sourdough bread and golden blossom honey was the centerpiece amidst the taper candles and antiquated English wares. Save a seat for us at this table; we would definitely want to break bread here among friends.
Let’s all take a moment (or two) out of our day to check out this bliss-inducing Janita Mestre wedding. It’s delightfully in the desert, so of course you’re going to spot a few cacti at Galway Downs, but you’re going to see such a dreamy color palette too. Being so close to Valentine’s Day, Stephanie and Alex wanted to evoke love all throughout, so they picked pink as their go-to hue. Big and bright blush and ivory florals by Events by Floral Sensations complemented the eye-catching David’s Bridal mauve bridesmaids’ dresses, and we loved this idea, too. Instead of continuing the soft tones everywhere, shake up the colors like Stephanie and Alex and throw a deep hue in the same color family somewhere that will be seen. Adding it to the bridesmaids’ dresses was a clever touch without overwhelming the couple’s desire to have an airy feel to their wedding day.
The leaves are turning, temps are getting a smidge cooler, and autumn is set to make its grand entrance soon, so what better way to celebrate than with a stunning early fall wedding from one of our favorites, Amy Arrington Photography! Vinewood Plantation, a historical plantation home just outside of Atlanta, played host to Melissa and Zach’s whimsical celebration. J. Elliot Style designed an event that’s a mix of rustic and sophisticated, with elegant lanterns and greenery adorning the tree serving as the backdrop for the outdoor ceremony, and swaths of greenery and vivid blooms from Virtu Floral and Event Design gracing the wooden tables for the barn reception. We’re crushing hard on Melissa’s eclectic bouquet – a mix of anemones, ranunculus, dahlia, rose, and even kumquats in early autumn shades make for a stunning addition to her lace gown. Head over heels for this beautiful event and all of Amy’s images captured on film!
We are head over heels for Chris and Tiffany’s chic city wedding at the Pratt House! We love how four generations of family came together to celebrate this dreamy day and Karen Hill was behind the lens capturing every single gorgeous detail. The beautiful florals by Floresta were the perfect addition to Tiffany’s breathtaking Pronovias gown and we cannot get over how pretty her maids were in purple dresses from David’s Bridal. The darling cake by Empire Cake was sweet as can be and matched the brown and gold reception to perfection. Prepare to spend the day swooning over the fabulous images in the gallery here!
Courtney and Shawn’s wedding at The Little Nell is pure Colorado magic. Though it snowed the next day, their September wedding could not have fallen on a more gorgeous, sunny day. The couple chose bright fall colors to pop against the lush green mountains and worked with the wonderful Lauryl Lane and Virginia of Bluebird Productions to create a beautiful, warm setting amongst the pines and in the dramatic ballroom. Centerpieces of aspen trees and an assortment of fall blooms (loving those orange tulips!) graced the tables and brought the fall foliage indoors. We adore the laid-back Colorado elegance in the stunning images from James Christianson!
Hello my dears and happy Christmas! I hope you are in the midst of much merry and bright. We have some beautiful and romantic holiday inspiration for you today from the Chicago dream team of Hello Darling, Nimble Well, and Kina Wicks! Taking inspiration from the colors of the season, Natalie from Hello Darling created a positively stunning bouquet in shades of crimson, blush, and garnet which pairs beautifully with centerpieces of beautiful greenery garland and a sea of taper candles. We adore the dessert table, which features the most lovely gold and white confection from Luscious Layers Bakery. The addition of silhouettes is such a romantic touch, and touches of berries and cotton echo the softness of the season. Run over to the gallery to immerse yourself in all of the holiday inspiration!
Dramatic jewel tones meet rustic barn setting in this inspiration shoot from One Summer Day, set at Silverbrook Farm in Virginia’s Horse Country. It’s simply gorgeous! The fall feel of the shoot is thanks to moody portraits, set amidst vintage decor from Stylish Patina Vintage Rentals. Coordinated by Ashlee Virginia Events, details like brass candlesticks and gold china sit among deep red and purple florals by Petals & Hedges. We cannot take our eyes off the black and gold stationery and that amazing and unusual cake from Cakebee! And how gorgeous is the gown from Soliloquy Bridal Couture? See all of the lovely images right here!
The stunning mountains of Beaver Creek Ski Resort were the backdrop to Jolyn and Andrew’s Colorado wedding. Although I’m not a fan of skiing (or really any activity that involves the cold), I adore the look and feel of mountain lodges and am in love with the gorgeous florals by Bella Fiori whose centerpieces of elegant blue hydrangea and burgundy dahlias were placed in natural bark-wrapped vases. I love, love, love this wedding and all of the wonderful photos by Rebekah Westover!
I love fall weddings, especially when there are unique and fun autumn elements that are outside of the traditional norm. This fabulous inspiration shoot from Lisa Martin Bloomsberry Floral and Sara Gray Photography brings a modern spin to the fall wedding, showcasing a color palette of vivid orange and yellow paired with kraft paper brown, and fun and unique details including a beer and nut bar, apple place cards, and a recycled beer bottle centerpiece! The beautiful models show off two bridal looks – one classic and one soft and playful, and what better accessory for bridesmaids than bright yellow Hunter boots?
This gorgeous rehearsal dinner, designed by Hillary Yeager of Nashville’s Brocade Designs, makes me excited for fall which (considering how much I adore summer) really takes a lot! Inspired by the rolling hills of Tuscany, the rich gold, currant, and rust hues work so beautifully with the wooden and crochet details. I’m a sucker for fruit in centerpieces, and absolutely adore the grapes and apples incorporated into the arrangements, and the gorgeous greenery accents. Thanks Hillary for sharing this beautiful event!
I simply adore the rich fall colors in Bethany and Jason’s wedding. Even in the warm Florida autumn, the chocolate brown and burgundy tones feel crisp and fresh, and perfectly embody the season! Tallahassee’s SouthWood House was the beautiful backdrop for the event, and Forever Photography by Kylene captured all of the lovely images.
We chatted the other day about wedding philosophies, and one thing that I touched on was that your wedding should stand the test of time. On that theme, here is a classic red, ivory, and sepia inspiration board for you. Notice the multiple ways that handwriting in red ink makes an appearance, subtly tying the elements of the board together. Handwriting is so personal… such a great way to make your wedding your own!
