It’s Valentine’s Day, and as we all know, Valentine’s is meant to be enjoyed with the one(s) you love, so what better way to celebrate than with a fabulous Galentine’s Day brunch! Emily Elizabeth Events created this adorable “Girl Gang Gathering”, where she and several of her closest friends came together to sip, eat, chat, make Valentine’s Day cards, and create floral arrangements, and this is one party we wish we could attend! Pink and gold stationery from Paper Delights invited each lady to the gathering, where they were greeted with balloons festooning the entrance to Seattle’s Ollie Quinn and the most gorgeous tabletop with florals by Emily Elizabeth Events and dusty pink linens from La Tavola. We’re loving chic and modern details like acrylic standing mirrors, cut-out name place cards, and pink lip cookies, and the romance and elegance of the compote centerpieces, textured fabrics, and vintage trays displaying sips and bites. Galentine’s has never looked so fabulous and we are head over heels for every moment, captured beautifully on film by Blue Rose Photography!
We may be a bit fruit-obsessed lately (figs anyone?), but with all of the colorful autumn fruits, can you blame us? This week we are crushing on the pomegranate, and it’s easy to see why! Poms make gorgeous escort cards, are an interesting and unique addition to centerpieces and bouquets, and their rich pink-red color just screams autumn!
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 admit it, stripes have become our latest obsession! We’ve already crushed on sassy black and white stripes, but now we’re smitten with delicate and romantic blush, and we’re loving the trend of blush and white stripes in weddings! Such a beautiful way to add a bit of texture to your decor, gown, and even cake!
No matter how you plan on spending your Valentine’s Day, these sweet heart details will surely get you ready to celebrate! We couldn’t let this Valentine’s week go by without a roundup of some of our favorites, so whether you choose to incorporate heart details into your wedding, don some sequined heart goodies for the holiday, or are simply a fan of the sweet shape, we know that these hearts will surely make yours flutter!
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?!
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!
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!
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!
What you’re about to see is nothing short of pure confection perfection. An absolutely perfect color palette of aqua, mint, watermelon pink, and gold; cuter than cute desserts by Brown Betty Dessert Boutique; and exceptional styling by Styled Creative (LOVE that backdrop!) come together in these incredible photos by Alison Conklin. I adore this shoot down to each and every cake, pop, and sprinkle!
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!
The styled shoot we have for you today was inspired by the feeling of being completely and utterly lovestruck. You know – that passionate, heart-stopping, fallen-hard kind of love. Using a palette of rich fuchsia, magenta, and vibrant pinks, Julie Liles Floral & Event Design dotted roses, tulips and calla lilies with crystals and arranged them among sparkling candles and lanterns. How fabulous are the custom headpieces by Petals by KC and the glittered favor boxes? Then there’s the stunning ombre cake by Frosted Bliss Cakes and the adorable sparkling cake pops by Raleigh Cake Pops too! So many fabulous details in these incredible photos by Live View Studios. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
It’s so refreshing to see a fall-inspired wedding or shoot using colors outside of the typical fall palette! For this shoot, Michelle Cousins of Utah Events by Design used a copper and gold-inspired palette with touches of peach, pink, and mossy green for a little fall flavor. Details such as the bride’s dress, birdcage veil, and the table linens also give this shoot a vintage vibe. And can we stop for a moment and talk about the cake? The stunning ombre green cake with copper flowers by Sugar Kisses Cakes is absolutely incredible! There’s no better way to start the Thanksgiving holiday than with these beautiful images from Tonya Peterson Photography – a huge thank you to Michelle for sharing this gorgeous shoot with us!
I love the delicate, romantic feel of ombre elements, and this gorgeous inspiration shoot from Eventity Inc highlights ombre in the most beautiful way! The Darlington House in La Jolla was the backdrop for a beautiful bridal look and tablescape in a classic pink, white, and sage color palette. The fresh, clean tabletop features flowers from Sweet Pea Flower Company and soft ombre menus and place cards from Cali Cards, and to top it off there is the most amazing cake from Hey There Cupcakes! Sit back and enjoy the fabulous images from Bryan N. Miller Photography!
Goodness gracious, me oh my. From the moment I saw the invitations, I knew I’d be in love with this inspiration shoot. Add in the killer cacti and the insanely beautiful models and I’m completely hooked. Photographer Elle Golden Photography brings us an incredible vintage chic collaboration with Christopher Confero Design and Bella Signature Design in the middle of the desert outside Las Vegas. Really though, does it get any hotter than this?
Today is such a fun day for me because I get to show off my very first designed shoot! I was so thrilled when Sara Gray asked me to create a shoot for her latest MarryThis! wedding guide, and immediately enlisted the amazing Kelly Marie Uss of Fleur to join in to help me style a romantic summer wedding shoot, full of vibrant colors and elegant and fluffy blooms. I love trends, but wanted to take a few of the design trends that are popular today, such as vintage china and lace, and use them in a way that was classic and timeless, a wedding that would stay fresh and inspiring for years to come. We chose the absolutely fabulous Aeree Loft at Room 1520 as our venue, its clean white walls and amazing light were the perfect backdrop!
