A backdrop of verdant green climbing ivy and dreamy painterly florals would play a muse for any impressionist artist, so it’s no wonder that Indigo Event Design chose the stunning gardens and chateau of Monet Vineyards for this Claude Monet-inspired shoot. BLUE Floral Company created a pastel rainbow of locally-sourced florals to paint the outdoor ceremony space and stunning bouquet that is worthy of Monet’s brush itself. Lush centerpieces of coral and butter yellow peonies, lavender scabiosa, and dusty blush roses sit atop a french blue table, with just the right touch of regal elegance from gold flatware and chargers. Romantic and intimate, these photos by RTFaith Photography prove that even a micro-wedding can be a fairytale wedding too!
Holly and Jacob chose the beautiful Grandeur House for their fall wedding and the all-white farmhouse was the perfect backdrop to highlight all of the personal details they chose for their event. Dusty blue tablescapes were warmed by centerpieces from A Pocket Full of Posies in hues of rust, burgundy, and orange, reflecting the fall foliage outside, and Holly’s mother used stained glass from churches hit by Hurricane Katrina to make beautiful glass flowers for the tables. Small magnolia and Japanese red maple trees were even placed in the space for the evening but then brought to the couple’s home to be planted as a memory of their big day! They did an amazing job incorporating family heirlooms into their celebration while also creating new heirlooms and Jessica Brown Photography captured each of those details perfectly!
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.
Meg and Ned envisioned their Connecticut wedding to be simple and elegant and with their fête being held in the middle of summer indoors, the possibilities were truly endless for them; which meant that Cassi Claire Photography was going to be in photography heaven with the amount of subjects to photograph. Shore Haven Golf Club was transformed with delicate colors and throughout the venue, a soft pale pink with the ever-popular complimentary colors of gold, white, gray, and navy blue were dotted all throughout. The key to really executing a plethora of colors together is to keep the palette simple, starting with an overall, main color that works effortlessly with the rest of them (like what Meg and Ned did with white). Utilize the rest of the color choices and pepper them all over the wedding in various areas. The blooms by Flowers by Justine were perfectly pink and white with a mix of gray planters and tall gold column stands and the groom and groomsmen were dapper in blue. A four-or-five color palette can be daunting, but with a little know-how and creativity, the shades will harmoniously work well together.
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!
We’re dreaming of warmer weather over here, and we have been served some wonderful wedding inspiration on a plate. It’s a unique one for sure, as it features a trés chic wedding gown from Emily Kotarski paired with some muted colors. Cayleigh Hopkins of The Petal Report jazzed up what we typically think of “summer shades” and used deep versions of reds, blues, and purples instead. Enjoy this shoot from Hannah Alyssa Photography to the fullest, especially those florals from Fresh Weddings and Events. That bouquet with the protea front and center is a dream!
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.
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!
Austin’s gorgeous Laguna Gloria set the scene for a vibrant and colorful bridal inspiration shoot designed by Lindsey Brunk. The Italian-style villa, with its black and white checkered floors, dramatic doors and windows, and expansive grounds is an elegant location for weddings or portraits. Lindsey chose to showcase a gown from Romanian designer Divine Atelier, and the darling mix of lace and chiffon paired with a slightly daring back cutout is unexpected and unique! Makenzi Laine chose to accent Mel’s natural beauty with soft makeup, vivid lips, and a chic updo. A punchy and playful bouquet from Without Wax, Katy completed the swoon-worthy bridal ensemble! We are always head over heels for the images from Michelle Boyd Photography, and we know you will be too!
Katie and Jeffrey celebrated their nuptials on a gorgeous winter day. After a ceremony at Katie’s childhood church, the guests moved to New Jersey’s Ryland Inn for a warm and cozy reception. The Ryland Inn’s large rustic ballroom with a beautiful stone fireplace was dimly lit by candlelight and Conroy’s Creations created breathtaking large arrangements to accent the cathedral ceilings. To combat the chilly December day (theirs was a 12/13/14 soiree!), the bridesmaids accented their J.Crew gowns with soft gray pashminas. Their warm and romantic day was beautifully captured by Brklyn View Photography!
There simply isn’t one single thing we don’t adore about Jen and Jesse’s modern Brooklyn wedding. Rather than a formal dinner, the couple chose to enjoy a progressive cocktail party with their guests, a perfect mix of formality and casualness. Liberty Warehouse set the perfect scene with its industrial aesthetic. The organic greenery from Violet and Verde highlighted the brick, wood, and metal throughout the venue. As if their locale couldn’t get more breathtaking, Jen’s father created a wooden altar from scratch that, paired with Violet and Verde‘s floral, made an exquisite and personal ceremony backdrop. Jen is a vision in her Blush by Hayley Paige dress from The White Gown and the bridesmaids’ dresses add just the right pop of color. Even their choice of wedding date is perfection—they were married on Loving Day, the anniversary of the overturning of the criminalization of interracial marriage in the US. We know that you’ll join with us in falling head over heels for every sweet moment as captured by Kat Harris Photography!
We have the prettiest little Brooklyn wedding to share today! Esther and Peter were planning their wedding from Korea, so they enlisted the help of the fabulous Lindsey Brunk to bring their dreams to life. After a ceremony at New York City Hall, the couple walked the Brooklyn Bridge before making their way to The Farm on Adderley for a lovely, intimate patio reception with pretty little posies from Lindsey Brunk and a vegan red velvet confection from Lael Cakes. Esther designed her own gown, and it is positively gorgeous. Her mother helped by sewing over 1,000 beads onto the gown! We adore the sweet simplicity in this beautiful wedding, and the lovely images from Brklyn View Photography!
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!
We love a good Southern wedding filled with romantic details, and Justine and Eric’s North Carolina wedding fills the bill perfectly! First stop: St. Michael the Archangel Roman Catholic Church for an elegant ceremony, punctuated with divine bold red bridesmaids dresses by Love Lane from Bella Bridesmaids. The pop of color is gorgeous! Justine chose a beaded strapless Pronovias gown and veil, which she accented with jewelry by Sorrelli and metallic heels by Jimmy Choo. To honor her family, Justine also carried her great-grandmother’s rosary and her great-aunt’s handmade purse. Eric carried his grandfather’s ink pen in his Men’s Wearhouse suit, and he also tucked a photo of his great-grandfather in his pocket. We love these sweet details! Classic stationery from Maria Scheel and understated florals in cream and green—including white and ivory hydrangeas, peonies, garden roses, and mini calla lilies—by Kelly Odom marked both the ceremony and reception, with tall trumpet vases spilling fluffy blooms on to tables at Prestonwood Country Club. With direction from A Southern Soiree Wedding & Event Planning, the ballroom was transformed into a gold and cream wonderland for dinner and dancing. Cinda’s Creative Cakes provided the tiered confection, topped simply with white roses. We’re swooning over this beautiful wedding and these images from Nancy Ray!
Oh how we love this beautiful and refreshing take on winter wedding inspiration! The gorgeous Bitterroot Mountains in Montana are the backdrop for this stunning inspiration shoot from Soiree Event Design Spokane and Rebecca Hollis Photography. Warm mustard, french blue, and deep berry red come together to echo the beauty of the surroundings in a lovely and unconventional color palette. Home-brewed cider, hand-dipped beeswax candles, and fresh local honey butter favors (recipe below!) are just a few of the rustic, elegant details that make this shoot so personal and down to earth. A flowy gown by Claire La Faye, florals by Ashley Mitchell, and rustic rentals from the Attic complete the scene. We are smitten!
