A Southern Winter Wedding with Jewel Tones

Something about jewel tones and the autumn season just make them perfect for each other, don’t you think? This creative team of Ashley Slater Photography, Michaela Noelle Designs, and Lindsay Coletta Designs certainly seem to think so, and we agree. Deep and dramatic floral design merges with rich berry hues to create an absolutely magical wedding inspiration shoot!

From the event designer, Michaela Noelle: Deep berry hues mixed with feminine gold touches, whimsically designed floral arrangements with plenty of greenery, vintage china carrying out our color story, the most elegant chandelier, a dessert bar unlike anything we’ve ever seen, a romantic and flowy gown, and a stunning bride and groom who share a sweet love story. This is what our romantic, wintery inspiration shoot was made of. When we dream up the inspiration shoots for The Bloom Workshop guests to practice photographing and styling, our goal is to create something exceedingly gorgeous, different from what a bride might choose for her actual wedding day, and put together a story that is filled with unique, tiny details (perfect for the prettiest of detail shots!).

My personal favorite color is purple, but it’s often hard to find an elegant way to incorporate this hue into design schemes. The right shade is key! Because we wanted to design a scheme suited for both Fall and Winter, a deep plum and berry-purple seemed perfectly appropriate. I kept calling the palette “berry”, so from there we came up with a berry inspiration shoot, adorned with edible and delicious varieties of berries, seen in many aspects of the design. From blackberries dripping from our main floral centerpiece, to raspberries and more blackberries gracefully draping off every square inch of our dessert bar, it certainly was a shoot filled with inspiration. Each of the artists involved in the day poured their heart into their portion of the design. I loved how the two set ups (the dining table and dessert bar) complimented one another, by tying in the gold and berry elements, in the most beautiful of ways. A bold color palette is worth the risk, especially when paired with soft details!

Alder Manor Wedding with a Mint Green Dress

Photos By: The Melideos

The second we saw bride Angelica’s vintage Carolina Herrera’s wedding gown, it took our breath away – there’s no other way to put it. The Melideos did both the gown and the entire wedding day justice behind the camera, while Fox Fodder Farm provided the positively stunning flowers.

From the photographers, The Melideos: It’s always fun to head back to one of our favorite venues, especially one that is constantly changing! Alder Manor in Yonkers, New York is under new management and they have been restoring this incredible mansion so that every time we have shot a wedding here, there have been some new surprises around every corner. While it’s looking less and less abandoned and decrepit (one of the reasons we absolutely loved it at first), it is being restored to its former glory and is just as stunning as ever. From that grand staircase to the architecture, there truly is a photo op everywhere you look!

We were so excited to see Angelica and Justin again, we met them for the first time over a year before their wedding and we just knew this was going to be a fun celebration! When I saw Angelica’s vintage Carolina Herrera minty gown I think I did a cheesy fist pump and screamed “yessssssss!!!”, it was so unique and beautiful. Her lovely fishtail braid and the stunning bouquet just pulled the entire ensemble together and made her look like a fairy princess. We love when brides think outside of the box and choose to go with a gown that reflects their personality and style! Angelica and Justin are two of the sweetest most adorable people on the planet. They just oozed adorableness, and after every photo I think I basically melted into a puddle. It was such a beautiful party, such a fun event, and we absolutely loved being a part of it!

Christmas Wedding Inspiration with Fruit Decor

We just adore the trend of pomegranates (or any fruit, really!) in wedding decor. Those pomegranates are the focus of this styled Christmas wedding from Tyler Rye Photography, Forevermore Events, and Bloomers Flowers & Decor, who take the traditional reds and greens of the holiday season and update them with a modern twist in a unique desert location.

From the photographer, Tyler Rye: We wanted to put a little twist on the traditional holiday Inspiration shoot. We added fun details like an old sled and a hand made table by Tyler Rye Photography. We wanted a shoot that would remind people of the beauty of the holidays with out being too traditional.
