We just want more and more of this Texas wedding shoot by ML Photo & Film! We can’t get enough of those sky high magnolia trees and the ultra-southern Woodbine Mansion sitting pretty in the background. To our heart’s delight, Eclipse Event Co. wanted to keep the style fresh and sweet as tea, with the always-classic white and ivory paired with cornflower blue accents along with hints of gold in the cutlery and peach linens. The medium powdery blue certainly stood out on the sprawling manor’s grounds, tying everything together to result in an epic rendition of “southern charm”. This one is certainly for the Pinterest boards!
Elegant Classical Seattle Wedding Inspiration
Seattle’s gorgeous historical Rainer Chapter House was modeled after George Washington’s Mt. Vernon home in Virginia. It contains a multitude of antique furniture and framed portraits that have the effect of bringing you back in time to the late 18th century, and this shoot photographed by Audrey Norman Photography effortlessly blended the classical venue with current trends. A neutral color palette of champagne, ivory, blush, and gold melded with the ornate interior, and pops of texture created a soft feel, especially when paired with romantic candlelight on the elegant tabletop with a ruched cheesecloth runner. Botanique Flowers styled a warm and inviting centerpiece with warm peach and sage tones, and The Sweet Side designed a cake with square tiers embellished with ivory flowers inspired by the Pronovias gown from Labelle Salon.

Our favorite detail? The entrance fountain overflowing with lush florals!

Botanica designed a stunning chuppah for their blended ceremony (Danielle is Jewish, Patrick Presbyterian), and worked with the NK Productions team to style a sophisticated reception with modern touches such as acrylics and a sea of candles for the reception. They say rain on your wedding day is good luck, and the best laid plans of a courtyard reception were quickly switched for plan B, a ceremony and reception setup on the dramatic loges overlooking the museum. This made for an intimate event that Danielle says “ultimately made for an even more memorable experience!” This elegant and timeless event is one for the books, beautifully captured by Hunter Ryan Photo!
Elegant Bridal Session Inspired by Frida Kahlo
Art will forever be inspirational subjects, but even the artist is put on display and ultimately, veer towards becoming artistic components themselves. Cue the illustrious Frida Kahlo. The woman was a pioneer for her time and thanks to her ingenuity, we were graced with many surrealist self-portraits and homages to her native Mexico. In this delightful shoot by Heirloom Rose Photography, Montserrat Salgado wanted to channel Frida, but steer her style towards a light and airy aesthetic. Frida was a paragon for her own brand of femininity, and a bold bridal gown by Esteé Couture with lace details and off-the-shoulder sleeves proclaims that brand of womanhood. Vendors like Haute Poppies and Perch Event Decor fully embraced the inspo. Pink and gold details are forever timeless and the florals were showstoppers; large, organic bundles of blush and peach blooms and without a doubt, that big and beautiful floral crown was the main event. Frida, no doubt, would wear that beauty proudly.
Charleston Wedding at Governor Thomas Bennett House
California-based Kate and Edward decided to tie the knot in Charleston, South Carolina, and fell in love with the classic and historic aesthetic of the Bennett House.

Undeterred, The Petal Report and Tiger Lily moved the ceremony indoors to the base of the dramatic staircase. The rain cleared just as the ceremony ended, just in time for the couple and their guests to dance the night away to Palmetto Soul. These two are hopelessly in love, and it shows through in every beautiful moment captured by Rachel Red Photography!

Mariana chose a sophisticated Rosa Clara gown featuring a detatchable skirt (and pockets!), and accented the gorgeous gown with 92-year-old earrings gifted to her gread-grandmother by her great-grandfather on their wedding day. Salazar donned a chic suit/tuxedo mix, and a watch gifted to him by friends for his thirtieth birthday. The couple sprinkled their day with many handmade elements, from “tears of joy” tissue packets to little hangover kits for guests, and created some fun photobooth signage, which was a hit!

Sarah of Keestone Events crafted a romantic and classic wedding with a modern twist. Debbie loves neutral feminine colors and selected a peach and blush palette with pops of gold and sage, and Petals Couture created lovely garden-style arrangements to accentuate the dramatic ballroom.

Tina grew up in Hong Kong and Australia, with half of her family in Scotland, and Zac is from Australia. Their close family and friends live all over the world, so what better way to celebrate their union than with a destination wedding in Barcelona, where they were living when Zac proposed? Their vision of an intimate, personal wedding came to life when they found Casa Felix, a Spanish villa in Barcelona’s wine region, with a relaxed, peaceful ambiance. The couple worked with A Spanish Do to create a poolside reception highlighting the stunning locale.

Colorful + Chic Winter Wedding
Rachel and Clark were married on a crisp, clear Alabama winter day. After attending a number of wonderful but scorching summer soirees, the couple selected January 23rd (1/23!) for their nuptials, and after they chose the date, they realized that the “stars” were literally aligned for the occasion: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn were in perfect alignment! Whether it was due to the celestial phenomenon or the flawless execution by Invision Events—or both!—their day went off without a hitch. After a private ceremony in their church during winter’s golden hour, the couple and their guests made their way to the Birmingham Museum of Art, where everyone enjoyed fantastic food from A Social Affair and danced the night away to the Chad Fisher Group. We love the unexpected color palette of marsala, ice blue, and ivory, brought to life in exquisite florals from Buffy Hargett. Many of the larger arrangements featured unusual combinations such as kale, turnips, pomegranate, and quince, which blooms only in January! We are swooning over every lovely moment captured by Mary Margaret Smith Photography!
Classic Southern Garden Wedding
Ashton and Jonathan knew they wanted an intimate outdoor wedding in and narrowing down the venue location to Hill Garden at Birmingham Botanical Gardens was an easy choice because of its gorgeous, effortless scenery. Southern charm ruled the day, with lush white bouquets by Dykes Culp of Mariee Ami; pops of lavender in Ashton’s peony bouquet are a soft nod to her favorite color. The team at Mariee Ami also styled and directed the affair, making sure every detail was perfect. Ashton’s stunning Martina Liana gown from Ivory & White Bridal Boutique looked ethereal outdoors surrounded by the beauty of the gardens. At the adjacent reception, silver and cream details look magical in the dusky light. A simple cake from Olexa’s features a cascading row of flowers that also uses a hit of lavender to complement Ashton’s bouquet. A Bryan Photo did a phenomenal job of capturing this sweet and romantic soiree—run to the gallery to see it all!
1920s Art Deco Inspiration
This Art Deco wedding inspiration shoot from Spindle Photography is just absolutely stunning! Inspired by the 1920s, designers from Mariee Ami in Birmingham, Alabama, joined forces to create a sophisticated, sparkly backyard party. Cloth of Gold Flowers used a palette of mostly white with hints of green and gold and even white feathers for arrangements, while Uprising Custom Cakes created a blue confection with gold detailing to complement the theme. Elegant and intricate gold and silver table settings from Table Matters rounds out the look. But the crown jewel of the affair is the Jenny Packham gown—with gold accents, beading, and rhinestones—that’s breathtaking. Everything about this soiree is perfection, like a page out of The Great Gatsby!
Classic + Elegant Mansion Wedding
We are absolutely blown away by the gorgeous Southern charm of Callie and Andrew’s Birmingham, Alabama wedding. Held at the historic Donnelly House, the outdoor ceremony gave way to an indoor and outdoor reception, both featuring tons of lush hydrangea blooms in centerpieces and bouquets created by Continental Florist. The bride’s Rivini gown starts as a traditional strapless style, but the bottom will nearly leave you breathless—pleated orchid-like ruffles make this a dress to remember. The chocolate-colored dresses from Bella Bridesmaid are a stark and sophisticated contrast to the white flowers. Spindle Photography captured every last perfect part of the day, including that amazing wedding cake from Olexa’s. We can’t pick just one favorite detail of this delicious affair!
