Wedding Style Meets the Big Easy

Wedding Design

There are few cities as rife with their own personal style as New Orleans, Louisiana. Brass instruments, Mardi Gras, and a nod to French sensibilities are the first things that come to mind for me, and this styled shoot from GreenAutumn Photography & Film and Delight Floral Design fuses these things together for an inspiring styled shoot that has us yearning for a trip down south!

From the paper goods designers, Frou Frou House: The inspiration for our styled shoot came from a recent trip to the culturally infused city of New Orleans. Belonging to our neighbours down south, this little gem was packed with breathtaking architecture, musical history, classic flair and indigenous cuisine. It was not hard for us to fall in love and envision a styled wedding based on the Big Easy lifestyle and culture.

Our tablescape featured a French Horn as the centerpiece borrowing from the city’s affair with brass instruments. This was our focal point and was surrounded by vintage gold candlesticks. A luscious leafy garland peppered with subtle florals crafted by the talented Delight Floral Design draped down the center of the table. We paired this beautifully with a navy satin linen and charcoal napkins provided by Susan Murray International. Influenced by the presence of the Art Deco era within New Orleans, we selected mirrored plate chargers from Event Rental Group, gold flatware and custom menus designed by our in house team that served as remnants of this period.

The stunning florals incorporated rich jewel tones of burgundy and magenta which were accented with soft blush pink roses and wax flowers. This gave our shoot just the right amount of sophistication and romance. Wanting to include a little bit of the Big Easy cuisine, we used a traditional New Orleans pastry – beignets by Vanilla Lane for our sweet table. The two tier navy cake with delicate handmade blush pink florals looked lovely in front of the lace and gold dipped feather backdrop.

One of the highlights of our trip was witnessing a delightful Second Line wedding march filled with a full band, frilly parasols and a whole ton of 50s flair go down the middle of the French Quarter streets. We based the look of our couple on this experience. Our breathtaking bride wore a gorgeous cap sleeve ivory Theia gown completely embellished with ivory sequins from Sash & Bustle. A charming feather hairpiece was placed effortlessly in her hair which was styled with lovely vintage sapphire earrings. The handsome groom wore a custom classic navy suit from Surmesur Toronto, a crisp white shirt and a dark green polka dot bow tie for an added colourful touch. Our friends at GreenAutumn Photography captured our vision wonderfully and the raw candid moments between our real life couple could not have been more romantic and natural. This timeless, romantic wedding inspiration is perfect for a sophisticated yet fun bride that appreciates the small personal details from a city full of life, love and history.

California Winery Wedding with Fuchsia Accents

Rustic Weddings

I don’t know about you, but “relaxed winery wedding” is right up my alley. Throw in some incredible fuchsia and pink ball dahlias, and I’m completely sold! Imagen Photography, Savvy Event, and Chestnut and Vine put their talents to work to make Mary and Dillon’s day a special one, and they certainly achieved it.

From the bride, Mary: We were envisioning a rustic chic laid back environment with lots of love and family surrounding – beautiful, fun, and relaxed. Our colors were shades of grey, blue and pops hot pink! Our table cards were handwritten by the bride’s mother then placed on wood in individual vases with a single ball dahlia (same flowers used for bouquets & boutonnieres). We (the bride & groom) also hand made ALL the lawn games, ladder golf, giant Jenga & cornhole.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Don’t sweat the small stuff, it’s just one day. We had so much fun planning that helped the joy of the day to last from well before to well beyond. Also, we sprung for a wedding video which couldn’t be overrated, it’s been a really special treat to have to look back on the best day of our lives so far.

Overcast Beach Wedding with Blues and Silver

Wedding Design

Even when the days get a bit chillier, a beach wedding is never out of the question – as this styled shoot from Karla Korn Photography and Rockstar Catering + Event Co. attests. This team drew inspiration from rugged rocks and crashing waves, and opted for a silver-grey gown for the bride (a detail we absolutely love). Some silver leaf details and beautiful greenery from Botanical Bliss ties everything together beautifully!

From Rachel Pintarelli, Rockstar Catering + Event Co.: We’re pleased to share with you a sweet styled session celebrating the coastal winter wedding. Coral Cove Park in Jupiter FL was the perfect backdrop for our intimate affair which featured the moodiest of December skies and our real-life sweeties, Kristie and Tyler. From the beginning, Karla’s vision for the shoot was clear – soft and romantic images that capture the coziness of an overcast evening and the movement of an ocean breeze. With inspiration stemming from the beautifully rugged rocks along the sandy coastline and the waves that crash over them, our creative team worked with a color palette that combined muted hues of ocean blues and grays against natural textures and tones with added pops of silver.

Each and every detail you see was handcrafted, designed, or selected by our vendors, right down to the silver leaf flatware and sea salt favors. For the florals, Chloe from Botanical Bliss composed a unique collection of Cotton, Air Plants, Spanish Moss, Dahlias, Italian Ruscus, Rice Flower, and Orchids with a wispy, airy feel. Candlelight and hand written paper details from Erica Dunhill upped the romance factor table-side, alongside winter white faux fur ghost chair accents, timeless china from Atlas Party Rental, and vintage furnishings by Urban Vintage. The dinner menu featured fresh, seasonal fare from Chef Kyle of Rockstar Catering + Event Co which paired perfectly with our signature Pear + Prosecco cocktail. For dessert, Earth and Sugar created a stunning three-tiered cake adorned with silver leaf and cotton accents.
