Jewel Tone Inspired Shoot

Wedding Design

We’re always up for anything in a jewel tone color palette, and this beautiful shoot has them in spades. Inspired after a trip to London, Alexis June Weddings and Kaitlin Agulto Weddings put together a weddingscape with wonderful favor ideas, an eye-catching bouquet arrangement, and a positively dreamy wedding dress from BHLDN in an untraditional beige tone.

From the planner, Kaitlin Agulto Weddings: Brandi from Alexis June Weddings and I have been ogling jewel tone colors for months now and are so beyond thrilled that all of the tiniest of details finally came to life! When we had the opportunity to partner with Crossing Vineyards and Winery, we knew we had a perfect chance to show another side of a vineyard wedding. And in doing so, we found inspiration in Brandi’s recent trip to London and all the beautiful emeralds, rubies, plums and reds that she saw while she was there. We didn’t want to lose touch with our location though, so by bringing in elements like the blooming grape vines and gorgeous stemless wine glasses with hand-painted calligraphy by Vanessa (VCalligraphy) as well as wine flavored lollipops (Luxe Lollipops) for favors, there was no way anyone could forget where we were!

The florals for this shoot were absolutely fabulous! I challenged Susan (Ye Olde Yardley Florist) to conjure something up that captured a multitude of our jewel tone colors and was so unique I wouldn’t even know what half of the flowers were called. And, let me tell you, she was successful. With an incredible garden of her own, she pulled in some gorgeous blooms for us, creating a centerpiece and bridal bouquet full of color and texture. She also designed the arch standing on the venue’s property to look so natural that you thought it was just growing in the garden and yet still full of vibrant colors.

What is a London jewel tone inspired shoot without some vintage though, am I right? When I found this dress at BHLDN I didn’t even think twice. It was elegant (AND BEIGE!) and the beading was so detailed I couldn’t even control my excitement in the store (limited, of course, to only one happy dance!). And what would a gorgeous barn table (Fox and Finch Vintage Rentals) be without some vintage China, gold flatware and the perfect plum ombre stemware? Paired with Charlene’s (kraze4paper) “Mr.” and “Mrs.” wine glass charms and Stephanie’s (Rustic Homemade) table number, our table was complete! Growing up with friends who can bake is something extraordinary. Ashley Baker (Ashley Bake Me a Cake), who specializes in stunning deliciousness, designed a beautiful set of naked cakes for us with accents of pink and white frosting and topped off with a gold “cheers” cake topper (Emily Steffen). As you can probably tell, to me it’s the details that make the difference. I searched high and low for unique items that could add to this jewel tone inspired shoot and I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge that without them, this shoot wouldn’t be complete.

Lavender Big Island Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Today’s wedding just happens to be one of those that feels so relaxed, you just wish you had been there to share in such a special day. Kylie Martin Photography and Bliss in Bloom took the reins on Natalie and Dylane’s wedding day, capturing beautiful scenes in various shades of purple and lush arrangements filled to the brim with roses.

From the bride, Natalie: I really just wanted the wedding to feel elegant and whimsical, Hawaii is so beautiful it wasn’t hard to make that happen! Purple is my favorite color so it was pretty easy to pick the color scheme for the wedding. We went with lots of different shades of purples, some blues, and white accents. When I saw how all the colors came together I was beyond amazed at how well they complimented each other.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? My advice to couples that are planning their wedding now is to remember to take in the experience. Always think about what truly matters, don’t sweat the small things, and over all just relax and how fun!
