Scandinavian Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Photos by:

This photoshoot from the darling duo behind Jeff Loves Jessica stole our hearts right away with its fresh, clean design and pops of confetti. Styled by The Honeycomb Collective for the new Hearten e-magazine, this mid-century inspired shoot is sure to catch your eye. We’re especially loving that gray scalloped backdrop with wooden slat hearts!

From the photographers, Jeff Loves Jessica: This mid-century modern, Scandinavian-inspired wedding set was a joy to put together. Its simple, organic theme was drawn from Lotta Jansdotter, a Swedish designer whose work I completely adore (her fabric is even featured in the bride’s clutch)! There is no end to the talent and kindness of wedding professionals around here, and we were so honored to see all the pieces of this shoot fall magically into place.

Local Wedding Guide: New Jersey

Local Guide

Calling all Garden State couples! We’re hopping across the Hudson to highlight our New Jersey Blue Label members and learn tidbits about them. From our favorite local venues to photographers based in NJ, here is your look-no-further list of resources. If you’re not in NJ, remember they all love to travel!

New Jersey:

Aevum Photography:
New Jersey Wedding Photographers

Tell us a little bit about you and what you do.
Aevum Photography: Half hipster, half geek, Aevum is a team of two like-minded artist/photographer/mac nerds who decided to join forces to bring a new angle to wedding photography. We believe in simplicity, honesty, natural light, coffee, and all things real. We think wedding photography is entering a new era, and we want to be a part of defining it.

What is your favorite tip for couples for being photographed on their wedding day?
Aevum Photography: It’s really hard to be yourself when there’s a giant camera lens in your face, and while we will sometimes literally hide in the bushes to help you forget, the best thing you can do is stare straight at that person you’re marrying and remember why this is the happiest day of your life. It only takes a fraction of a second to capture that real-life smile.

Any favorite photo spots for engagement sessions or must see sightings?
New Jersey is called the Garden State, but in the northeast region where we’re from, it doesn’t always live up to its name. Still, it’s possible to find some gems among the concrete. One place we love is the giant run-down Colgate clock in downtown Jersey City that lights up at night across from the Manhattan Skyline. Or the high grass and rolling hills of the Loantaka reservation. And for an awesome juxtaposition of urban grandeur and rural delight, we like to shoot at Liberty State park and the surrounding grounds.

Mydolcefarniente – Weddings and Events in Italy

Dear beloved couples,

Thousand of kilometres divide us and you have to take a very important decision of choosing your destination wedding planner. Yes, i know it’s difficult to do without meeting the person. So, before we can have a Skype call to meet each other virtually, just a few lines about me. I’m a Tuscan soul since 2002, can’t stop thanking heavens for having “dropped” me in this marvellous land. Also for me the reason of moving to Italy was love :)
I’m completely in love with the wedding planning that I’m involved in since 2011. Your wedding is my wedding so if you choose Mydolcefarniente, you choose a highly professional team. I don’t apply the same fee for every event. I give the opportunity to the couple to choose the most appropriate solution for their dream wedding to come true. We work in a flexible way and offer different solutions unless we find the right option that satisfies your needs. We don’t have restrictions because the only things that counts is to make you happy.
Hear from you soon, Yuliya

Coral Savannah Wedding

Vintage Weddings

Photos by:

It’s pretty much a given that any wedding that Jade + Matthew shoot will be epic. Remember their first feature? We’re still swooning over these images. Today we have a new wedding to gawk over. Uniquely them and totally gorgeous, Autumn and Ken’s wedding may very well convince you to add a touch more color to your inspiration. A blush pink wedding gown and flowy polka dot dresses for the ladies is just about every girl’s dream, including ours.

From the bride, Autumn: Vintage was my first thought, then I found my wedding dress… that really set the tone. Everything kind of evolved as far as colors and vision… I really just took time and let it all fall into place.

I feel that the day ended up feeling fun, free and whimsical and romantic. Our colors were coral, pink tangerine and grey… again not a choice per se, it just evolved once I found the boutonnieres that I loved (in Coral). Once I came across the polka dot dresses for the bridesmaids I wanted to tie the dots in without making it seem like a child’s party. I found someone on Etsy who sells “dots”, I ordered some 3-inch dots from her and used those as the place cards, I also ordered multiple sizes of smaller dots and glued them on the ceremony programs.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Our first idea was to go to Savannah and have the Reception at Vic’s… we went for months looking at other places and checking out a ton of venues online and in person. We ultimately went with our first thought! I would say that you have to stay true to what you want to do and don’t feel pressured to make decisions, you never know when you just come across the right things (like my bouquet, boutonnieres, guestbook, makeup artist etc.). Don’t sweat it, it will all come together!
