Edgy Bohemian Wedding Inspiration

Photos By: Veronica Varos

If ever I could step inside a styled wedding shoot, I’d pick this one from Veronica Varos Photography. It’s the ultimate bohemian fairytale with enough flowers from Mt. Lebanon Floral to last a lifetime, and the perfect unique venue, Iron Eden, whose iron pieces provide a stark contrast to the soft beauty of the gowns and floral details. This here is true love.

From Ansley, owner at Bliss Events Ltd.: We “described the inspiration for the shoot as ‘Eclectic, Edgy & Bohemia.’ Iron Eden is the perfect description of our shoot as Eden means, ‘any place of complete delight, bliss and peace.’ Personally, I loved the fact that we all wanted to create a dream.”

From Carmel, owner at Mt. Lebanon Floral: I knew that head wreaths were going to play a part. I wanted that vibe to be represented, to be eclectic and loose and to illustrate that a wedding can be part fantasy and part reality; fantasy but not the princess look. I wanted to reach the bride who cannot be pigeon-holed. I visualized bold and textured and soft at the same time. That’s why so many different textures came through in the final product. Even the location supported this with a sort of ‘nest theme’, an iron nest. It shouts ‘one of a kind’, even the gold dress underlines that. Our teamwork was flawless. I think people want something new, more free form, more organic. To me, it’s fantasy. It’s for a girl who really, on that day, is living a little bit of a fantasy. It’s magical, almost Mid Summer Nights Dream like. It’s the day that you should absolutely be able to live a fantasy. If not then, when?

From Erin, owner of Glitter & Grit: For the shoot I chose gowns by Lindee Daniel, who is the epitome of eco luxury. Her designs evoke elegance with an edge by weaving together sustainable fabrics and endless details. Her gowns are created in Los Angeles, using exquisite and exclusive wild and peace (cruelty-free) silks, organic cottons, and other natural fabrics. Colors are either from the natural color of the fiber, or by a natural dyeing process. The sleek designs of Nicole Miller are a perfect fit for the no-fuss bride. Look for vintage-inspired pieces with lace, beading, and magnificent draping from Nicole Miller. Her gowns provide versatility for any bride while remaining effortlessly chic. The Nicole Miller Bridal Collection is handmade in New York and are made of the best quality fabrics.

New York Meets Palm Springs Wedding

Photos By: Amber Gress

As if there was ever any doubt, this wedding proves that when Amber Gress and Michelle Edgemont come together, the result is pure magic. As soon as Caitlin and Scott realized their wedding day could (and should!) be whatever they want it to be, they began looking at it as one big party with all their loved ones in tow. Sounds perfect, right? Spoiler alert: it is.

From the bride, Caitlin: It took us a little while to really hone the vision for our wedding. We spent so many hours stalking other weddings and pinning into the wee hours of the night, and there were so many fun styles and ideas we were just so overwhelmed. That’s when we realized that we didn’t need to follow something someone else did; we could do whatever we wanted. Sounds crazy, but took a couple months for us to realize that. And we knew more than anything we wanted the atmosphere to feel like a party. We thought of all the fun things we’d like to see at this fabulous party which were cool metallic elements, fun runners, cascading streamers. We wanted our guests to feel the energy and fun from the second they entered the tent, so we did that through the décor.

Bouquet recipe: Peach garden roses, peach stock, white dahlias, ferns (some spray painted gold!), light pink spray roses, hot pink carnations. They were tied with a combination of ribbons; peach watercolor, white with black polka dots and metallic gold. The bridesmaids’ bouquets were ferns (some tips spray painted gold!) with a peach watercolor ribbon.

Our theme was definitely “Party.” And our color theme/style was lush ferns and greens accented with pink and peach florals. Handwritten type accents throughout and touches of metallic gold and geometric patterns. And last but not least, confetti! The geometric table runners and table numbers were DIY [but not by us:)]. We hired the INCREDIBLY amazing and creative Michelle Edgemont who took this party idea and made it a reality.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Do you! Don’t get overwhelmed with all the photos upon photos of ideas. I’d say, start by thinking what you want it to feel like… romantic, cozy, modern, inventive, quirky…and then dream up what that means. The best part is you can’t go wrong; it’s your vision, so take some risks and have some fun with it.
