This lovely and romantic boudoir shoot from Brittany Lauren Photography is effortlessly dreamy! We love the contrast of delicate vintage lace lingerie with leopard print, and the sweet mint, pink, and turquoise color scheme of the surroundings, styled by Betsy Miller. Cassandra Kennedy Beauty created a makeup look that is soft and subtle with the dramatic lingerie. We’re swooning over the adorable cake from Sweetly Aimee, a light pink confection with white fondant that resembles vintage lace. Swoon!

Classic White and Green Destination Wedding for Denver Couple
When you fall in love with your wedding venue, you just know, no matter what your plans originally were. Amanda and Vlad planned for a Colorado wedding, but they never knew what hit them as they stepped foot onto Bella Collina’s stunning grounds in Florida. Reminiscent of the Tuscan countryside, it was love at first sight for the duo and it just jived so well with their romantic wedding vision that we get to fawn over thanks to Kristen Weaver Photography‘s epic photos. The white florals and greenery by Lee James Floral looked resplendent against the venue’s landscape, but no matter how glorious the blooms looked, it just couldn’t compare to Amanda and Vlad looking like a million bucks. They stole the show, for sure!
Natural + Organic Wedding Inspiration Featuring Minted
Set in an industrial warehouse space, today’s Aisle Society shoot featuring Minted stationery and decor is natural, organic, and ethereal! Louise from B.LOVED designed two different looks, each showcasing invitations with greenery and floral motifs from Minted. The watercolor influenced Leafy Ampersand suite and the vivid Diamante set inspired a blush, gray, and green setting with botanical motifs, floaty bridesmaids dresses from TH&TH Bridesmaids, and an on-trend macrame gown from Luella’s Bridal. Whimsical gold foil trees dot the tabletop, which sits beneath a canopy of suspended greenery designed by Moss and Stone Floral Designs. Minted’s Vines of Green all-in-one invitation and Petal Surround suite are showcased in the second look, with dramatic black tableware, coordinating black table numbers and menus, and flowing silk ribbons. The greenery inspired stationery sets, loose florals, and refined organic feel are perfectly on-trend, and we couldn’t be more in love with the stunning images by Helen Warner Photography!
Glamorous Garden Wedding Ideas
Equal parts glamorous and playful, this garden wedding inspiration shoot from Marsais, Blush and Vine, and Weddings by Jessee channels inspiration from Marie Antoinette and cotton candy! The unique juxtaposition perfectly captures the sweetness of Brittany and Ethan’s love for one another, and combines for a whimsical fairytale shoot not to be soon forgotten. Enchanting details such as a mirrored table, hand-painted opal dinnerware, and dramatic black taper candles set the scene, with lush compote-style arrangements from Blush and Vine completing the glimmering tabletop. Cotton candy from Lush Puff echoes the gown from Carol Hannah with swaths of tulle, and sleek black accents from the silk ribbon by Honey Silks & Co. to fabulous Manolo Blahnik heels play up the glamorous style. We are swooning over every unexpected detail in the lovely images captured on film by Marsais!
Colorful Floral Wedding Inspiration
Scottsdale’s El Chorro resort was a stunning backdrop for this whimsical styled wedding inspiration created by Victoria Canada Weddings and Events. Selecting a dramatic floral linen from La Tavola Fine Linen as their inspiration, they designed a garden soiree featuring bold patterns and vibrant florals by Carte Blanche Design. Elegant and eclectic details abound, including a hand-lettered vow board by Dear Sarah Design, a painted wedding cake by Ruze Cake House, and stylish lounge furniture from Prim Rentals. From the unique statement floral for the ceremony setup to the delicate blush gown from Bella Lily Bridal, not a detail was left unfinished, and we are swooning over the images captured on film by Elyse Hall Photography!
Spanish Mission Texas Wedding
Dana and Donte may just be the most picture-perfect couple, and their intimate, backyard wedding under the warm Texas sky has us spellbound! The couple searched high and low for their perfect venue and luckily found a Spanish Mission as a rental home, and the rest, as they say, is history! Though bringing in each and every item for a wedding is a daunting task, Wedfully Yours (where the bride is a lead coordinator) worked tirelessly to make this Big Day perfect. Donte and Dana met in high school and became inseparable after reconnecting two years ago. Dana shares “My mom said I always thought she didn’t like him, but really, she didn’t like that I was so crazy about him. I’d completely lose my mind from the excitement!” Their story—along with Dana’s new not-for-profit business dedicated to hiring people who have fallen into homelessness— touched the heart of Brittany Lauren Photography when we held a wedding photography contest here on EAD earlier this year, and it’s easy to see why. We can’t help but fall in love with this couple, whose love and affection for each other shine through in absolutely every moment. We know you will feel the same!
Wedding Inspiration from Aisle Society
There are some days that are simply perfect, and today is one of those days, because at long last, we are debuting Aisle Society to the world, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to share the absolutely gorgeous Aisle Society official brand shoot that I styled with Lauren of Every Last Detail and a dream team of Chicago’s best wedding pros at downtown’s most fabulous wedding venue, Chez. Together with the ladies from Estera Events, we set out to create an event that would showcase all of the things that Aisle Society represents: fun, friendship, community, and of course, utterly beautiful wedding inspiration! Dramatic draping from Drape Kings was the centerpiece of the room, swathed along the ceiling and leading to a ceremony altar flanked by simple but show-stopping eucalyptus arrangements from Fleur. In the rest of the details, we bathed the whitewashed space in color! Our gorgeous ladies donned frocks from Bella Bridesmaids and David’s Bridal in shades from blush to dusty blue and flowing Truvelle and Sarah Seven bridal gowns, carrying bouquets of vibrant summer blooms. The modern but elegant tabletop features glimmering sequin linens and rose gold chargers and amazing confetti popper menus from Sarah Drake Design. I’m brimming with excitement for you to watch the video of the day by the insanely talented Nicodem Creative (I dare you not to get goose bumps!) and see every gorgeous image from Alexis June Weddings!
Waterside Wedding with Manhattan View
Jodi and Jared were married on a picture-perfect day at Waterside Restaurant and Catering in North Bergen, NJ. The dramatic Manhattan skyline as seen from the Hudson River was the perfect backdrop for their outdoor ceremony, which featured many lovely moments, including the traditional seven blessings as read by the couple’s aunts and uncles. The couple wanted their wedding to have a light and airy feel, and flowing Donna Morgan dresses for the ladies in shades of blue matched the sunny August skies and perfectly complemented Jodi’s Reem Acra gown from Kleinfeld Bridal. As the imposing skyline was visible from the venue’s floor to ceiling windows for the reception, Avenue Flowers & Gifts kept the centerpieces simple and low, with fresh white blooms. Jodi and Jared selected the band, Burnt Sienna, because they had caught their show at a local hotspot in Dewey Beach, Delaware, where they fell in love! The non-stop dance party was kicked off by the couple with a fabulous choreographed first dance, executed flawlessly right down to the “Dirty Dancing” style lift at the end! Every moment is captured beautifully by Cassi Claire!

Elegant Masquerade Wedding Inspiration
This glamorous shoot, designed by Vision of Elegance Events, was inspired by the masquerade balls of 15th-century Venice. Lake Forest Illinois’ The Armour House, an Italian mansion with a grand staircase, light-filled paneled ballrooms, and expansive lawn, provided the perfect setting. This modern twist on a masquerade features a glamorous tabletop in shades of rose gold, blush, and gold with florals created by Vision of Elegance Events. Luxurious details such as a Swarovski crystal mask from Rodwall Couture, textured linens from Nuage Designs, 3-tier champagne tower, and tableware from The Festive Frog added to this elegant affair. We love the on-point stationery designed by Pink Elephant Events, including a unique scroll menu, and an ornate stenciled cake from Elysia Root Cakes is the perfect finishing touch. Every image is beautifully captured by Elizabeth Nord Photography!
Classic Wedding at Oheka Castle
We are utterly, completely, head-over-heels smitten by today’s stunning bride, Lina. She is the epitome of elegance in a classic Aire Barcelona gown with train and sleeves, her chic chignon by Russel from Styles on B and understated makeup by Ylenia L Mazzei allowing her natural beauty to shine through. To say that it’s hard to take our eyes off of her is an understatement, but her wedding to Vladimir is equally as irresistible! Long Island’s landmark Oheka Castle is a mere 36 miles from New York City and yet feels a world away. It is a most beautiful setting for a classic wedding, and Lina and Vladimir’s color palette of pink, aqua, and gold brought a playful touch to the surroundings. The couple worked with Karyn Michael Events to bring their vision to life. L’Oasis Floral Design created rich florals in shades of pink and ivory, with fluffy dahlias, delicate roses, and lush hydrangea. We dare you not to fall in love with each gorgeous image from Alexis June Weddings!
Modern Desert Wedding
Less is most certainly more in this gorgeous contemporary Arizona wedding from Amy & Jordan Photography! Cactus Flower worked with Allie and Jon to create a modern, chic wedding at DC Ranch. After an outdoor ceremony on the lawn, guests moved into the Regale where they were met by simple but dramatic tables with centerpieces of long-stemmed white roses and black linens and gold chivari chairs. Pale pink J.Crew bridesmaids dresses softened the palette, and we are in love with Alli’s dramatic Allure Bridals gown. Enjoy each and every gorgeous image from Amy & Jordan Photography, and the fabulous trailer from Simply Cinema!
Romantic Gatsby-Inspired Wedding
James and Anne’s romantic Gatsby-inspired wedding had us at hello! Inspired by the 1920s vibe of her elegant Jenny Packham gown, Anne set out to create a subtle vintage feel for their Milwaukee nuptials, and the sleek, mirrored ambiance of Bacchus was just the right fit. Bouquets of delicate peonies and dusty miller beautifully offset BHLDN bridesmaids dresses, and a dramatic bridal bouquet of pink blooms with wispy white feathers was the perfect complement to Anne’s ethereal ensemble. Impressions by Esther created a mix of high and low centerpieces for the reception in an eclectic mix of depression glass, mercury glass, and milk glass vessels. The day’s pièce de résistance? Anne’s father’s vintage Jaguar! Be prepared to swoon over each and every image from Heather Cook Elliott!
Classic Detroit Ballroom Wedding
Detroit’s stately Colony Club is home to some of Michigan’s most elegant weddings, and Chris and Kate’s June nuptials shows it off to its fullest! Working with a chic black, gold, and pink color palette, La Belle Epoque Events designed a classic ballroom wedding, featuring sophisticated florals from Viviano Flower Shop. Statement linens in bold black stripes, glittering sequins, and uplit ruffles were the centerpiece of the ballroom, which was left open and airy for the large dance floor where guests boogied away to the sounds of Big Will and the 360 Degrees Band. It’s clear that these two are head over heels in love, and Blaine Siesser Photography captured their day perfectly!
Central Park Boathouse Wedding
You first spied Kristen and Britt in their lovely Brooklyn engagement session, and we are so thrilled today to share their classic Manhattan wedding. They selected one of New York’s most gorgeous settings, The Loeb Boathouse Central Park, as their venue, and the theme of the day was natural beauty. The cherry blossoms were out in full force for their spring nuptials, and they made the most of them, with stunning blossom branch centerpieces created by Lenox Hill Florist, and of course, portraits in the blooming park! The couple rode across the lake to the Boathouse in a Venetian gondola, and the party greeted them upon arrival with cheers. Britt, a graphic designer, created all of the printed materials for their wedding, in their true-to-NYC black and white palette. Enjoy these beautiful images from B Hull Photography!
Roaring Twenties Wedding Inspiration
We are just crazy for this Great Gatsby-inspired shoot from Reg Campbell! Drawing inspiration from the idea of a young couple living it up in the Roaring Twenties, whisking off to get married in Paris, and enjoying the good life, Mona Moore Events pulled in authentic accessories, such as a vintage microphone and a grand piano from Sisters Vintage Party, plus an antique Bentley from SA Limo and props such as Cuban cigars for a romantic vibe we adore. The sophisticated setup was perfect at Bohanan’s, a prestigious restaurant in San Antonio that features a wood-and-brass bar, gilded dining room, and blue velvet seating—absolutely perfect for the feel of the 1920s! To fully embrace the theme, the bride wore an Art Deco style gown from Destiny Bridal Boutique, with a beaded headpiece that recalls the decade. We love that not a single detail escaped the team, with gold and black stationery from Le Snooty Fox that complements the surroundings and a table filled with French pastries from Bakery Lorraine. An amazing pink cake from Creations Cake is feminine and pretty, too. Puffy pastel florals from Botanika grace tabletops, while the bride’s bouquet features elegant roses and earthy succulents—it’s a perfect mix of grandeur and grace, just like this shoot!
Sophisticated Philadelphia Wedding
One thing is clear from these images by Sarah Der of Kristen and Brendan’s Philadelphia wedding: fun was the theme of the weekend! With all the festivities centered downtown, Kristen says it was easy for guests to get around and explore the City of Brotherly Love. The ceremony was held at the intricately detailed Liberti Church, followed by a chic black and gold reception at The Down Town Club. Following Kristen’s request for lots of pink flowers, Cleavers Petals in the Park fashioned together shades of deep fuchsia and pale blush roses with hydrangeas and dusty miller. Deep turquoise bridesmaids dresses from The Dessy Group provide an additional splash of color. Kristen is breathtaking in a satin strapless St. Patrick gown from Tre Bella, Inc., and a veil trimmed in lace from Modern Trousseau. To ease the stress, Cescaphe Event Group coordinated the planning, design, and other particulars, so Kristen and Brendan could mingle and dance with guests before cutting their gold polka-dot cake—a playful twist on the elegant black and gold decor. We can’t get enough of this gorgeous affair!
Snowy Park City Mountain Wedding
Rachel and Stephen’s snowy and romantic wedding in Park City at The St. Regis Deer Valley reminds us of an elegant Parisian affair! These glamorous images from Chantel Marie Photography have us dreaming of winter in Europe. Pink and cream blooms from Calie Rose Floral & Event Design are aplenty, woven in hair wreaths for bridesmaids and sweet bouquets for Rachel and her bridesmaids. We love the mix of blush and black bridesmaids dresses from BHLDN, Nordstrom, and Watters. Rachel’s Enzoani gown is stunning, especially with her soft updo and sparkling headpiece. Run, don’t walk, to the gallery to see all of the gorgeous details!
Sophisticated + Romantic Michigan Wedding
Katie and Ryan’s Rochester Hills, Michigan wedding may as well have been set in a faraway European village for all of its breathtaking fairy-tale details. Starting with a ceremony at First Congregational Church of Rochester, where old-world elegance abounds, Katie walked down the aisle in a gown from Le Salon that can only be described as amazing. Her cathedral-length veil featured embroidery that gave the ensemble a vintage feel. A bridal party dressed in black and white added drama to the day. For the reception at Meadow Brook, lush cream and pink flowers from Bellisario Floral and an abundance of white candles set on silver stands created an ethereal atmosphere. One of our favorite details is the classic cake from Sweet and Savory Bake Shop set on an antique gold stand atop gold sequin linens. Simply gorgeous! Visit the gallery to enjoy every single photo from Amy Carroll Photography!
Coney Island Engagement Photos
We love a casual, fun-loving engagement shoot, and Chris and Cassi’s Coney Island engagement photos by Jen Huang Photography are fabulous! The cute couple spent a day at the Brooklyn boardwalk playing games, trying out carnival rides, and just generally being in love. The result is adorable photos that show off Cassi and Chris’s personalities. We are completely smitten!
Vintage-Inspired Bridal Portraits
We are just drooling over these bridal portraits from IYQ Photography! From the 1950s vintage dress—with that fabulous cape featuring beaded cutouts—to the fishnet veil headpiece and shiny blue antique car parked on the cobblestone streets of the Shockoe Bottom district of downtown Richmond, Virginia, the vintage look of these photos is so effortless and charming. We love bride Mary Alice’s dark curls in contrast to the soft makeup and dramatic red lips by Makeup by Ellie. Mary Alice’s pewter peep-toe heels with stylized bows and the full, ruffled petticoat put the gorgeous factor completely over the top!
