Fred Meyer Jewelers Fall Catalog

Sponsored

Photos by:

Jenny Chokbengboun

Whimsical wooden elements, a wedding venue that is absolutely to die for, and packed punches of jewel-toned reds make up the images from the Fred Meyer Jewelers Fall Bridal Catalog. With fall weather heading our way, this strikingly pin-worthy inspiration from Fred Meyer Jewelers is absolutely darling. Sticking to the season, Emerald Petals played upon the location and capitalized on the winery’s traditional look and created overflowing centerpieces with lovely white and green detail set atop gold urns. To add to the tablescape, a simple runner of foliage topped the look off and gave everything that autumnal feel. We love summer just as much as the next person, but there’s something about fall that we can’t help but adore!

Liana Huserik, Creative Manager at Fred Meyer Jewelers, gave us an inside look at how this autumnal wedding inspiration came together: Inspiration for this modern fairytale came from the combination of contrasting elements – geometric, industrial, urban elements meet with natural, soft, whimsical details in this stunning photo shoot.

Portland’s urban winery, Coopers Hall, was the perfect contrast to the wedding’s fanciful décor. Stacks of wine barrels, a ceiling full of fairy lights and a modern seating area gave the space natural vignettes for fun photo ops. We contrasted the winery’s contemporary architecture with whimsical wildflower bouquets, gold accents, woodcut coasters and soft candle lighting. For colors, we used unique, autumnal colors — spiceberry, blue umbra, winter sage, and Florentine gold. Pick your colors like a pro by browsing color palette websites like Design Seeds or Adobe Color. Choose a base you like and instantly get a full palette of perfectly coordinating colors.

PaperBackdrop

A fluttering, paper backdrop gave bare walls extra texture and helped define the space to feel more intimate. This popular DIY is a great way to give open spaces a dramatic feel without overspending! Find out how to make your own in just five easy steps.

These ethereal gowns were designed by Michelle DeCourcy, a Portland boutique designer known for statement and alternative wedding dresses. Each gown expresses modern elegance in their unique details – tulle overlays on an off-white skirt, floral appliqués, flowing empire silhouettes, and a lacy racer-back. Simple color pops like a magenta ribbon in the bouquet, bold lipstick and a smoky eye tied the look to our palette.

Elegant bridal jewelry rounded out the look by giving the bride a modern, metallic touch – a diamond solitaire pendant and matching earrings, delicate gold bangles and a spectacular wedding set. Named for the circle of light surrounding celestial bodies, the radiance of a halo engagement ring is unmatched. Accompanied by a brilliant pavé wedding band, this timeless, vintage-inspired wedding set perfectly reflected the whimsical mood of the wedding.

For the groom, we wanted to put a twist on the traditional black tie with a handsome, navy suit. The dark material kept the suit looking formal and classic, but the navy color allowed him stand out from the crowd. Just like the bride, colorful accessories like a vibrant bowtie, wild rose boutonniere, polka dot socks and brown dress shoes round out the look.

A pair of steel cuff links or a sharp-looking dress watch can add a debonair touch to your groom’s attire, but the wedding band is the real show-stopper. These days, grooms are upgrading their classic, gold bands to diamond-studded masterpieces and the changes don’t stop there. Alternative metals like titanium, cobalt, steel and tungsten are becoming more popular among today’s grooms. Many of these unique metals offer a more contemporary look and are more durable than traditional gold – perfect for the modern gentleman in your life. Check out Fred Meyer Jewelers metal guide to learn more about these metals’ characteristics.

Dinosaur Inspired Wedding at Fernbank Museum

Whimsical Weddings

What better venue for two self-proclaimed “big nerds” than a museum of natural history? Jade + Matthew Take Pictures captured the wedding day of Jackie and Jon, who filled their day with bright and colorful decor (need we point out the amazing floral design by Artistic Flowers?) to complement the museum’s own architecture. Don’t miss a single second of this one!

Dinosaur Inspired Wedding at Fernbank Museum - http://ruffledblog.com/dinosaur-inspired-wedding-at-fernbank-museum

From the bride, Jackie: Jon and I both have a lot of family, so we knew from the start we would be having a large wedding. With that in mind, we wanted a setting that would be large enough to suit all our guests and still have a lot of personality. We looked at a number of hotel ballrooms that all looked supremely bland, so the architecture of the museum was refreshing… Oh, and we are both big nerds (Jon just got his PhD in Computer Science and I am a major pop culture and science fiction fan) and we love dinosaurs, so that helped. =)

You will notice from the photos that we wanted a lot of bright, beautiful summer flowers — especially because I had originally hoped for an outdoor wedding, which ended up being impractical in Atlanta in July. The colors were actually picked to match the watercolor image on our invitations. Jon and I were living in New York while the wedding was being planned so Wayne, our wedding planner, designer and florist, chose all the color combinations and planned all the table layouts, including the glassware, tablecloths, chairs and a variety of other things I never would have thought of on my own.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Our strongest advice is to look at a lot of photos for ideas and go into any conversation prepared with your own opinions. Pinterest helped us find a lot of creative direction for small details. Definitely don’t be afraid to listen to others’ ideas for creative direction, but if you find something you love, stick to it!

Wedding Music:
Wedding Party Processional: Handel’s Royal Fireworks; Vivaldi’s Allegro in D from Concerto for Two Trumpets; Handel’s Hornpipe from Water Music
Bride’s Processional: “Te Diem,” Charpentier
We had no real recessional music because we recessed to the sound of everyone ringing dozens of unique antique bells my mom had painstakingly sought out one by one over the past year from antique markets and junk fairs and put under every seat as a surprise. Very fun play on Jon’s last name. :)
First Dance: “Sea of Love,” Cat Power

Modern Highlands Wedding Editorial

Wedding Design

This beautiful wedding editorial is just the thing we need for this September day, and how perfect is the styling for the upcoming change of the season? Kati Hewitt Photography and Love Birds Vintage Rentals & Styling collaborated on this Scotland-inspired shoot, bringing in all of the classic elements of the jaw-dropping elements of the Highlands terrain with a hint of modernity. Bride & Bloom drew in some of the most awe-inducing, berry-toned blooms and foliage for the arrangements; great complementary pieces for the earthy feel of this entire shoot.

From the photographer, Kati Hewitt Photography: There are few places in Europe as beautifully enchanting as the Highlands of Scotland, a fact not lost on the Mother-Daughter design team at the helm of Love Birds Vintage Rentals & Styling. “We lived in Scotland when Tiffani was a teenager,” explained Bridgette, “so we brought a lot of items home with us when we returned to the States. There is something about the history and character of those pieces that shaped not just this shoot, but our overall design aesthetic and how we approach wedding design in general. Scotland is all about history, and in a sense, weddings are as well. We want to help our clients create spaces that speak to their own story; their own history, and their families’ histories. That’s what weddings are, after all, taking his history and her history, combining them and then building upon that to create your own.”

We took the idea of quintessential Scotland, with its intense green hills, beautiful ivy-lined rose gardens and stark gray architecture and then tempered it with a modern touch. There’s a lot of that going on in the region as well, always a push and pull between the traditional and the modern, and that idea extends to American wedding design as well. We really wanted to keep that traditional element, that sort of wink to the past, without creating a design that felt stuffy. Of course there are elements like the tartan throws that are decidedly traditional, but when you look at Kelli, her look is much more edgy. We wanted to show brides that it is possible to combine both in a way that works.

Working with Kati Hewitt of Kati Hewitt Photography, they were able to capture the essence of Scotland without the 8 hour plane ride. “Olde Dobbin Station was the perfect backdrop, and Kati captured it perfectly. It’s one of the oldest structures in the area dating back to the late 1890s. We knew we wanted to capitalize on that for this shoot. When we started adding in all the details, it just took us right back home.”
