Punk Rock Bridal Shower

If you love weddings, parties, and events with a bit of edge in them, then you’ve come to the right spot. NJ + NY team Jessica Oh Photography, Color Pop Events, and Gilded Lily Events recently put together a styled bridal shower inspired by punk rock meets prim & proper. From the bridesmaids’ styling to the paper goods to the cake studded with metallic sugar beads, you’ll get plenty of alternative ideas here for you own un-bridal shower!

From the event stylists, Color Pop Events: I came up with the idea for this shoot after seeing a photo of Emerson’s fashion collection for Spring 2014, which was themed a “Punk Rock Garden Party.” Taking that idea one step further, I added the tea party element to incorporate some Alice in Wonderland whimsy. The overall vision for the shoot was to create a beautiful setting with girls in designer clothes, but to give everything a bit of an edge to it. I wanted people to look at these girls having an amazing time and think “I want to be them!” even if the clothes, accessories, hair, and make-up might be a little bit out of their comfort zone. This shoot was definitely meant to inspire.

The garden space at 501 Union proved to be the perfect venue for the shoot, and we were able to use the other rooms to set up the dessert table and bar cart. Gilded Lily Events created multiple floral arrangements with garden roses in a variety of vivid colors and through their in-house rental company, Dovetail Vintage Rentals, provided all of the tabletop items along with the bar cart and vintage pink chair. All of the paper goods, from the invites to the rock posters to the custom coasters were cleverly created by Mia Maria Design. The dynamic paper goods duo also handmade the darling escort cards, tea bags that were emptied of the original tea leaves and then stuffed with confetti. The custom studded cake and bright pink and yellow macarons came courtesy of Hudson Cakery. Three of the four dresses (Red Valentino, Monique Lhuillier and ML Monique Lhuillier) were rented from Rent the Runway, which is where we also got some killer punky jewelry pieces by Sarah Magid. The models’ hair and make-up was done by SB Beauty, who captured the vision of the shoot perfectly. The highlight of the shoot was definitely the floral backdrop created by Gina Paola Design, which she made by hand out of dyed coffee filters. The result was stunning. And we were fortunate to have Jessica Oh Photography there to capture every minute of the day.

Century House Wedding

Photos By: Danielle Poff

Summer is finally starting to wind down a bit, which makes us appreciate relaxed, backyard celebrations like this one from Danielle Poff all the more. After some searching, Alexa and Eric were able to find the perfect venues for the backyard wedding feel they sought, topping the day off with impeccable floral arrangements from The Petal Co..

From the bride, Alexa: We envisioned a backyard wedding feel for our big day but did not have an actual yard to use, so our venue locations were the closest to “backyard” that we could get! We also wanted it to be really relaxed and laid back, more of a party atmosphere. To keep with the summer wedding and light fresh feel we had an adorable lemonade stand as well!

Centerpieces at the reception had feverfew, garden roses, mint, seeded eucalyptus, and dusty miller.

We had a color scheme that was mainly used for the bridal party attire and in some of the linens and floral arrangements. Yellow and gray have always been two of my favorite colors so I wanted those to be present in our big day! I wanted my girls to be comfortable so I let them chose any gray dress that they felt the best in! For the guys we kept it casual as well with yellow gingham shirts with cuffed sleeves and loose ties. Summers in Pleasanton are hot so I wanted everyone to feel comfortable! As far as DIY projects go there was quite a few! All of the invitation pats were hand stamped by my husband and me. One of my friends designed the stamps for us and we hand stamped them all! She also designed the program which we turned into a stamp and added a Popsicle stick, and an engagement photo to make a cute fan for guests while they were at the ceremony. The chalkboards at the reception were all done by me and our lotto scratcher favors were in tiny envelopes designed by my friend also.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? It sounds cliche but go with your gut! If it’s something you and your fiance want then go for it! at the end of the day, you don’t want to have regrets about things you should have done! I got some flack for my very casual feel of the whole thing including my dress, open seating plan, and laid back approach. Once the wedding day was here though no ones opinions matter! all of our guest had a fabulous time and I couldn’t be more happy about our day! Some advice for the day of, again cliche, but don’t sweat the small stuff! Yes, little things will come up (for example we had flowers that were supposed to go around our cake tiers and the bakery just put them next to the cake) which could have been a problem I stressed about, but know one knew how it was supposed to be anyways and it still looked super cute! Another advice is DO A CAKE SMASH!! I have to say these are some of my favorite pics of our day. Since we did a First Look (also recommended) before the ceremony we already had so many nice and pretty pics so it was really fun to have the crazy pictures with cake on our face!

Clifton Inn Wedding Inspiration

One spot that never ceases to amaze us with its Southern charm these days is Charlottesville, VA. We’ve featured quite a few shoots and weddings in this pretty town, and today we’re bringing you another thanks to the talents of Rachel May Photography, Amore Events by Cody, and Whimsical Floral Design. There’s a good bit of peach and ivory prettiness ahead, so let’s jump on in!

From the stylist, Amore Events by Cody: The beautiful details of The Clifton Inn inspired our color palette of reds, greens, and peaches in our style, color scheme, and décor. This simple and neutral beauty is emphasized through the bride’s windswept hair and flowing veil and lace dress. Included in our shoot are flowers, candles, and gold-rimmed wine glasses to set the tone and mood for our evening of celebration. In this instance, our decorations serve as warm neutrals in an outdoor and scenic wedding: they work to compliment the existing beauty The Clifton Inn offers.
