Lighthouse Point Park Wedding

Photos By: Daphne and Dean

It never would have occurred to me before, but a beach wedding mixed with a dusty lavender color palette is pretty darn perfect. With some accents of mint green and incredible floral design from Blossoming Blessings, this New Haven wedding was a big winner — see the images from Daphne and Dean to judge for yourself!

From the bride, Rochelle: Our wedding day turned out to be more beautiful than how I envisioned it to be. I wanted my friends and family to experience our first day as husband and wife with so much joy, and most importantly, see how much love and FUN we truly have with one another through all of our little wedding details. We wanted everyone to fun, plain and simple.

90% of our wedding decor was created by both my husband and myself. It was the epitome of DIY. We did the save the dates, invitations, signs, favors, escort cards, sign in decor and the list goes on. One DIY I will always cherish is the carousel wedding logo he created for our invites and placed on our cotton candy bags. We truly are teammates and we honestly grew closer as we worked on all of these projects together. We made a lot of fun out of it and actually have a few of our wedding decor around our apartment! So, as you can see, our little wedding theme/hashtag was all about “Team Schultz.” We even choreographed/mixed all the songs to our first dance together, and practiced it once. That’s not even a joke.. it’s disgusting how are in-sync we are with one another.

For our centerpieces, I had a centerpiece making party where my bridesmaids, friends and family gathered to wrap twine and yarn around wine bottles all night long. Again, it’s important to make these DIY projects fun. Otherwise, it will be a big snowball of stress and no one wants to be around a stressed out bride. No one. My mother made my beautiful veil and sash. My grandfather made our cupcake display but cutting up a tree that fell in my backyard. All of these projects are so cherished and seeing everything put together, truly made our wedding so.. us. It was grand.

Welsh Floral Wedding Inspiration

There’s no better way to cheer up my day than with some breathtaking floral design, and Forbesfield Flowers delivered just that in this styled inspiration shoot from Wales. Ryan Welch Photography worked his magic behind the camera, bringing his fashion photography expertise to make this wedding shoot something special to remember!

From Beth of Forbesfield Flowers: Ryan and I met a few years back thanks to a mutual bride and we immediately established a shared ideal on aesthetics, especially in relation to weddings and all they involve. It was only recently, when I moved my business from a retail shop to a studio space on the balcony of a Victorian arcade, that we realised we had the perfect location for a photo shoot. The idea took flight from there.

Working in careers saturated in weddings, the vision and inspiration for this shoot, rather peculiarly, came as much from what we didn’t want as what we did want. We knew that we did not want to go down a well trodden path and felt that we had to offer something new and alternative to make it worth doing. Classic luxury has long since been out of fashion with weddings and so this was the starting point. So, out were apple-cheeked, pink-lipped, blushing brides and in were vamp-lipped, heavily styled locks and sultry attitudes. Out were ‘freshly picked from the garden’ flowers and in were dense, decadent, showy floral creations. We were looking to create the luxury and opulence that many modern brides dismiss in favour of a DIY look, and show them that luxury does not mean tacky or camp. The indulgent elements were brought in from the flowers, hair, makeup and dresses whilst the pared back, spartan backdrop gives a cool, modern edge.

Ryan clearly brings his fashion photography back ground to the shoot, moving away from the usual wedding photography style and bringing something that appears more at home in a glossy, fashion magazine. Bring into this the metallics used in both the cake and invitations and the scene is set for a wedding that takes place amidst exquisite luxury and crumbling grandeur. Strangely, it is the proximity of two such diverse aesthetics that creates a bewitching, enchanting quality to the final photographs. The final product is the vision recognised and at its most simple can be describes as “classic luxury goes modern.”

Stylish Green Building Wedding

Time and again, The Green Building has proven itself to be one of our favorite wedding venues. How can we possibly resist its easy blend of industrial and romantic styles? Clean Plate Pictures was recently there to capture the wedding of Jen and Rob, whose wedding was decked out to stylish amazingness by Whimsy Weddings and Molly Oliver Flowers.

From the bride, Jen: We’re not a couple who likes a lot of attention and fluff, so we wanted our wedding to feel fun and modern. In terms of style, we like a mix of minimalism with graphic colorful pops. We are also obsessed with food and it is a huge part of our relationship, so we wanted to make it the “theme” of our wedding. We were inspired by Smorgasburg, which incorporates a lot of our favorite things: cool people, hip location in Brooklyn, and the ability to feast on a variety of different things. I think we ticked off all those things!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Don’t listen to people who say things HAVE to be a certain way. If you don’t want a cake, don’t have a cake. If you don’t want to toss your bouquet, don’t do it! Nothing is set in stone; tradition is nothing but a guideline.
