A Vintage Inspired Love Shoot

Wedding Design

Where oh where to begin with this romantic styled shoot from Vintage Wedding Love by Greenbrook & Co. and Nina & Wes Photography? All of the lovely little details are as beautiful as the backstory submitted by the stylist, Josephine, who also serves as the model in the shoot alongside her dear husband. Let’s jump on in and take a peek!

From the event designers, Vintage Wedding Love by Greenbrook & Co.: This love shoot was a much needed breath of fresh air for us and it brought us back to where it all started… Specializing in destination weddings and elopements in Europe, we get to travel to gorgeous places to create and capture beauty, and we love love LOVE what we do! Rarely do we get to travel for ourselves, so when we heard Nina & Wes Photography would be passing through Scandinavia this past summer we knew we had to meet up with them there and take a trip down memory lane, and this time, we got to be the stars of our own creation :D I got to see my charming Swedish groom in his dashing vintage suit, he got to see me in my gorgeous lace gown, and together we got to relive and re-love the little details, sparks and emotions of our big day. We got to feel those butterflies again as we walked down to the water where he asked me to marry him and I was so ecstatic I almost forgot to say “yes”, and then up the hill to our favorite little chapel on the Swedish west coast where my hubby is from.

Working with brides from all over the world, we have the privilege of helping make their wildest dreams come true. We get to be a part of the beginning of their adventure and get to dream along with them as their big day approaches. Planning a wedding is a dream. Marrying the one you love is a dream. When the long awaited wedding day arrives, we feel like our dream finally comes true… And it really does come true. You get to be his Mrs. and he gets to be your man forever. It’s the best feeling ever! We had our dream wedding. Beyond all dreams really… We eloped just the two of us in Scandinavia and then celebrated our wedding later that year with family and friends on the French Riviera.

We sailed through it all with sparkles in our eyes… and bliss begets bliss… a few months after the honeymoon butterflies were settling down, we were so delighted to find out we were expecting our baby girl. Then, sometimes, once “real life” starts, things aren’t as you imagined. We didn’t anticipate how hard the next few years would be. How hard loss would be. How hard it would be to live through everything not being as it should be through those precious nine months. How hard it would be to hold your breath, and then feel so relieved when baby girl finally got here… From the day she was born, she was in pain. She spent the first eight months of her life in pain. Sleeping 20 minutes at a time and screaming in between. Married life was not as we had imagined and everything but our baby girl got left behind. Before we knew it, by the time she was doing better, we had been married for years and between work, family life, and more work, we had barely had the time to just live it all in and enjoy being together. To enjoy being husband and wife.

Regardless of how hard life can be at times, we are beyond grateful for every moment. Even those hard ones. They really make you appreciate the little things… like getting to play bride and groom again hehe… and sometimes you just need to step back and let some of those first emotions light up again. That’s what this shoot was all about. Nina & Wes made us feel so comfortable in their presence, and we just enjoyed the ride. All of our hardships washed away for a while as we walked along the water and just relaxed together, in love. It was perfect!

A Garden Greenhouse Wedding in Australia

Garden Weddings

From time to time we come across a wedding that literally takes our breath away, and the second we saw the reception in today’s wedding from Lara Hotz that’s precisely what happened. One lucky guest described the day as “a feast for the eyes,” and we truly couldn’t imagine a more perfect description. I’ll let the images do the talking from here on out!

From the bride, Alison: We were so lucky that my husband’s parents owned this beautiful historic house in Sydney – we felt it almost a waste not to have the wedding there! So we wanted a style and vibe that reflected the historic farmhouse – lots of greenery and nature with a rustic and relaxed feel. I think in the end it was a vintage/rustic look… One of our guests described it as a feast for the eyes! I just wanted it to be fun and to fit in to the historic location. I didn’t have an overt theme that I was sticking to, I just picked things I liked along the way and I think it turned into a rustic look by the end.

We made the signs that we placed around the property on big blackboards and easels for the reception, canapes and ceremony. We made menus and order of service for the ceremony on lots of different beautiful patterned paper from Spotlight – no two were alike! We made the place cards with stamps, raffia and pegs. The flowers were absolutely amazing – Jardine Botanic did a phenomenonal job. The archway where the ceremony took place was made of peonies. She also used some of the leaves from trees from the property for my hairpeice – which was such a nice touch. My Dress is from a very talented Australian designer called Philippa Galasso who was recommended to me when I was looking at beaded lace in a fabric shop. Philippa is amazing she comes over to your house to discuss designs and fabrics and she has her own beaded lace makers in France. I wanted some colour in my dress on the day and she ordered this beautiful sample of sage and gold beaded lace from her designers to show me – it was exactly what I wanted. She made the dress for me and it was the only wedding dress that I ever tried on!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Planning a wedding is a very steep learning curve in diplomacy! I think it is important to be clear, open and honest with family and friends from the start about what you want… otherwise things have a tendancy to snowball. Use as many friends and people you know in the wedding – its always nice to have more friendly faces on the day helping you get everything together. Our good family friend Rev Dr Jegasothy solemnised the ceremony and it was so special to have someone you know to be able to marry you!

Las Vegas Wedding with Bohemian Details

Bohemian Weddings

Today’s bride was going after a laid-back bohemian look, and to say she nailed it is a complete understatement. The day was filled with amazing floral details by Bud & Vine, captured by Gaby J Photography, and it’s the perfect encapsulation of a minimalistic natural wedding that’s low on stress but high on the pretty.

Las Vegas wedding with bohemian details - photo by Gaby J Photography http://ruffledblog.com/las-vegas-wedding-with-bohemian-details

From the bride, Morgan: We went with a modern, natural look… minimal, indie-ish, boho. Our colors were mostly jewel-tones. We DIYed candles for our wedding favors! And our backdrop, my husband built out of old pallets, as well as our cake stand. Our wedding stood out from the crowd because of our location — though we were in Vegas, it just didn’t feel like you were in the middle of a big city.

We used a lot of different greens for our table runners and arches, like ferns and different types of eucalyptus. For my bouquet, my focal point was a protea, the rest was dahlias, eucalyptus, and some other random things. My bridesmaids had the same bouquets minus the protea. My flower crown was eucalyptus and peonies. My favorite memory was our first look, it was very calming for me, and if we hadn’t done that, I think I would have lost it at the “altar.” Also, I loved our photobooth, so fun.
