Modern Austin Wedding

Oh goodness, are you ever in for a treat today. I swear, it’s as though someone popped into my dreams and pulled out my favorite ideas and decor elements and put them right into a wedding! Not only that, but our couple (Lindsey and Jim) hired an absolutely All-Star team to put everything together, including Two Pair Photography, Bird Dog Wedding, and Pollen Floral Art. Let’s jump in!

From the bride, Lindsey: We originally wanted to do the party-at-which-you-happen-to-get-married vibe, and we’re both still a bit surprised that we went a more traditional route! But keeping that sentiment in mind while planning, we didn’t over think things — just chose things we love. Like ice cream cookies. And succulents. And stiff drinks. Style-wise, we wanted our wedding to be pretty minimal, modern, architectural. And then we found this amazing converted cement plant in the hill country, complete with corrugated metal, farm tables, and donkeys. So it sort of became a study in contrasts.

We decided to go with mostly neutral tones – greys and golds and cool minty green – offset with small pops of bright red. I loved the idea of a bright color against warm wood backgrounds, and our wedding planner Emily Leach made these cool geometric paper favors that held macarons and doubled as table numbers. I DIYed the programs and menus and signs, and let the floral designer work her magic with succulents and terrariums. Originally we were going to have the wedding outside, and a last-minute rain threat brought us inside the giant screened-in porch. Instead of hanging our paper lanterns individually, Emily bunched them into a bold bouquet. It was great to let the industrial architecture (and the rustic hill country landscape) be the backdrop.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Choose three things that mean a lot to you (for us it was maybe the venue, the music, the photos), and don’t sweat the rest. It’s gonna be great. Also, don’t get too drunk at your party the night before, no matter how much sense it seems to make at the time. Oh! And hire a wedding coordinator, at least for the day-of. There’s so much to think about, and it felt great to leave the decision-making to someone else and just enjoy the day.

New Orleans Inspired Wedding Ideas

Photos By: Kate Ignatowski

One of our all-time favorite decorative accents is Spanish moss. It immediately brings to mind Southern tree-filled expanses, even when the South is nowhere near in sight! Kate Ignatowski and Mimosa Florals brought a little bit of the South to Brooklyn, NY in this New Orleans inspired wedding shoot, with endless modern elements guaranteed to inspire you.

From the photographer, Kate Ignatowski: We shot at 501 Union, a newer venue in Brooklyn, and immediately pictured a bayou, New Orleans vibe with lots of candle-light to go with the modern, refined elements of the space. How could you not have a cognac tasting at that bar! We had the calligrapher create a menu with the couple’s favorite cognacs and included assorted decanters for an intimate feel. We thought a couple that included a cognac tasting would have an appreciation for great food, so we went with rich cakes and assorted chocolates for dessert. To inspire foodie-loving couples, we displayed thoughtful, individually written recipes for each guest as their favor.

Spanish moss was a major element used to tie in the bayou feel. We draped it from the ceiling, drenched the tablescape with it, and incorporated bits in the altar piece. I LOVE the asymmetrical design in the altar with the moss + garden floral elements tied together with orange and gray ribbon. We kept with pops of yellow and orange to compliment the cognac and grays to complement the moss. The invitation suite has a splash of yellow-orange along with hand written gray graphite for a modern touch.

San Diego Party Wedding

Photos By: Rock This Moment

Hearing these words from the bride is like magic to our ears: “I have always been a very crafty and creative person so in my mind there is almost nothing I can’t do.” What’s better than a bride who fearlessly tackles creative projects to make her wedding day more personal? Get ready to delve into this stunning wedding from Rock This Moment, filled to the brim with amazing floral design from Cozy Posies:

From the bride, Quinesha: I would describe my wedding as whimsical, romantic and full of fun. Although we are both very spiritual, I did not want to have a traditional church wedding. I wanted the wedding to have the feeling of a big party and what better place than San Diego’s Gaslamp District. We wanted our personality to show in every aspect of the celebration. We picked the Hard Rock because it reflected our Rock & Roll attitude and we loved the industrial feel of Luce Loft. We transported all our guest to the reception in a yellow school bus which we thought it was very nostalgic (and budget-friendly).

Bouquet recipe: My bouquet and my maid of honor’s arrangements included white David Austin roses, Peonies and Dusty Miller leaves. We used ranunculus, Dusty Miller and seeded Eucalyptus for the corsages and boutonniere. The groom were a single David Austin rose with Dusty Miller and Eucalyptus.

I did not have a true theme but I could describe it as kind of southern rustic with a twist of modern elements. I wanted it to be Classic, Timeless, Youthful, Stylish, Modern, Entertaining and Fun-loving. My wedding colors were antique gold, white, charcoal and black. We decided to provide flip books as favors to our guest. We experienced it at a work event and said that we would definitely have to have it at our wedding. We thought the photo booth was a little played out. We had the cover custom made to match the design of our wedding invitations and guest book.

Like most particular budget brides, I researched everything to see what the world had to offer and then if it was something I could do for cheaper. I have always been a very crafty and creative person so in my mind there is almost nothing I can’t do. A few things I DIYed for the wedding were: I hand wrote the wedding backdrop and attached the branches to the pole stand, designed and created the wedding programs and signage (welcome, seating chart, table and bar signs), spray painted all the votives, created the guestbook, glued all the envelopes to the pages, designed and created the custom table menus, added glitter to the MR and MRS signs on the sweetheart table, made the draping pearls chair necklace (pearls were on a roll), painted and accessorized the wooden doll cake toppers, and lots more.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? My advice would be to make your wedding personal; it should reflect both of your personalities. It’s okay to compromise on some things and not to sweat the small stuff (no one will even notice).
