Modern Love + Hot Pink Flowers

Flower Guide

Photos by:

We all know if there were a wedding glossary, pink flowers would be under an ultra romantic setting. Hot pinks, on the other hand, can instantly modernize a romantic wedding with a jolt of color. So if you needed proof to your respective soon-to-be other that pink flowers have a modern facet, take heed from Sarah Winward of Honey of a Thousand Flowers. She is not only showing a fresh floral arrangement with pink flowers, but she is also showing the same arrangement done in two ways can have completely different styles.

From Sarah Winward: Some flowers naturally look better in certain environments than others, some transform to different moods pretty well. This arrangement demonstrates how the same flowers could be set in a moody and romantic environment, and also a contrasting cheerful and bright wedding. If you see flowers that you love, but that are used in an environment different than the one you are planning for your wedding, consider switching up a few details like the vases and table setting to make it work for your event (paying respect to the season and flower availability, of course.)

Flowers used were: hanging amaranthus, peony, tulip, bush ivy, and festival bush.

Garden Virginia Wedding

Vintage Weddings

Photos by:

This bride has got some seriously amazing style. Her Lazaro gown is vintage glam to the max, and so are her gorgeous pin curl waves! The bride isn’t the only stunner though — the locale is enough to make any girl start running for the nearest countryside. As always, Gabe Aceves did a wonderful job capturing the day!

From the bride, Dani: I wanted a really natural not over done feel. Basically pulled right out of etsy or Anthropologie. I wanted to take my style and make it something Evan would enjoy as well. Instead of super feminine floral shabby chic touches, I added rough burlap and live moss with dirt. I wanted lots of wood and natural elements.

I began with the color scheme of taupe and neon orange. But there are so many variations of Taupe and orange that it got complicated and at times daunting to stick with the scheme. The bridesmaids dresses were more tan instead of gray brown, etc. So in the end I pulled away from the strict taupe and orange and began adding touches of green and other muted colors here and there. I’m really happy with the outcome. I was going for natural and rough, while being pretty and light.

Washington Music Inspired Wedding

DIY Weddings

Photos by:

We are always giddy to see weddings from our readers come to fruition. When Atalie, the gorgeous bride from this wedding, sent over these images shot by Tonhya Kae, we literally squealed. We immediately fell in love with all of the musical inspiration spread throughout her wedding day, from vintage music sheets to an amazing soundtrack selection. The bride’s amazingly talented friends and family pitched in for her big day, handcrafting details such as the bridesmaids’ headbands and the darling peacock boutonnieres.

From the bride, Atalie: My first inspiration was of course my relationship with Gus. I decided to do everything music themed because we bond over music. We used a guitar for our guest book and placed a few engagement photos in the strings. I hand made all of the boutonnieres, adding the peacock feathers was the perfect touch! I added music paper feathers to tie them into everything… my favorite! The music we played at our wedding was music we both loved and music that made us think of each other. I ended up having everyone walk to Sweet Disposition by The Temper Trap. It flowed beautifully, and Gus definitely cried when I walked down the aisle! Our venue 4-H camp was very old and rustic. Together we decided our colors would be grey, navy blue, and a sage-ish green. We brought some vintage furniture, and I was very happy to find that the old piano I remembered playing as a child was still there! We also had tons of mason jars and all the old books, frames, suitcases, records, and vintage music paper were from my Grandma.

The other inspiration for the wedding was our photographer Tonhya and her style of photography. I loved how friendly she was, and that she was our age. She related so well to us and all of our friends, and was so sweet the whole day. My advice to brides about photography is to hire someone you believe in, and that you can be friends with. Splurge on it too, because it will be the only thing you have to remember your day with!

The actual day was amazing. We were afraid it was going to be pouring down rain, but it only began to sprinkle as I walked down the aisle to Sigur Ros… which made the moment even more magical. Everything looked so beautiful, and I loved how personal all of it was to Gus and I. It was the most surreal day of my life, and I wish I could relive it! My advise to brides is to make things because you love your fiance, not just because you want it to look like a wedding you saw on a blog. Take a moment to sit down and admire everything with your husband.
