Fall City Hall Wedding

I love fall weddings- the colors are always bright, the air crisp, and the flowers unique. This fall wedding looks so cozy and sweet. The bride’s creative details turned this location into something completely unexpected. Thanks Heather of Espana Photography for sharing!

From the photographer. Allison is an incredible florist and stylist. She and Dave were married in Nehalem on the Oregon Coast, surrounded by fall leaves and beautiful handmade details. Her inspiration for the decor was “elegance and soul” as she put it. Such a pleasure to photograph them! She took an ordinary City Hall and made it absolutely magical.

Tea Party Warehouse Wedding

Today’s wedding is so full of whimsy and design, you’re sure to find something to inspire your next event. The bride made all of the fabric and button flowers and they could not be any more stunning! Every element helps to support their tea party theme and infuse the day with fantasy. And, of course, the whole day is captured beautifully by the ever amazing, Our Labor of Love.

From the bride. We had gone to a few wedding expos and found absolutely nothing that appealed to us at any of them. My husband and I were sitting on a balcony at the Fox Theater in Atlanta overlooking an expo and I mused that whenever I thought about our wedding, I envisioned a tea party. It kind of ran from there. After falling in love with some dresses, we decided to narrow it down to a 1930s tea party and encouraged all of the guests to dress period.

Our color scheme was plum, light tiffany/robin’s egg blue, cream, and antique gold. I’m a graphic designer by trade and had everything pantone matched, from my shoes to my hair.

The flowers were made of felt and were cut, embroidered and built by hand. I sculpted the cake topper out of sculpy to fit into a teacup we got from crate and barrel that happened to be the proper color. The buttons on the flowers, the tea sets for the centerpieces and the linens were all antiques donated from both families. We also had a wall of old wedding pictures from both families.

The biggest DIY had to be the stationery. I designed the save the dates, invitations, programs, thank you cards, and guest book pages by hand. We rented a letter press to print everything completely by hand. I loved the process so much that I started a business doing handmade wedding stationery.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Two things: 1. Do not skimp on photography. The number one thing I heard from everyone I talked to is how disappointed they were with their wedding photos. I was determined to not let that happen to me.
2. Make use of family heirlooms as decoration! We got so many compliments on how touching/sweet it was to include all of the old linens, tea sets, and such. That was just a bonus on top of saving tons of money.

Handmade Ranch Wedding

This is one of those weddings that makes me miss warm sunny days and itch for a crafty weekend. Kelty of Steep Street Photography captured the relaxed vibe of Kendra and Chris’s wedding perfectly.

From the photographers. Kendra and Chris are high school sweethearts who got married at a ranch in the Santa Cruz mountains this summer. The decorations, setting, clothing, and events were fun and lighthearted with lots of bright colors. The bridesmaids chose their own dresses and colors, there were dahlias everywhere, and the checkered tablecloth and striped decor feel gave the wedding a cozy retro vibe.

They served brats and mustard for appetizers and planted small strawberry plants for each guest as a favor and seating card. The wedding party wore quirky nose/mustache glasses half of the evening and the main building itself made the wedding feel even more like a summer party on a farm or ranch. The bride wore a mermaid-y hoop skirt dress that not many other people could pull off! The evening ended with some raucous dancing in the barn by the pond.

From the bride, Kendra. Chris and I did a lot of projects for the wedding ourselves. It was a ton of fun brainstorming ideas together and seeing the final results on our wedding day. A few of the things we DIYed together include: our invitations and other paper products; sewing our napkins, table runners and yards of fabric bunting and our strawberry plant guest favors (which doubled as seating cards).

We built a photobooth which was a huge hit with our guests and gave us some hilarious pictures! Lastly, we had a cookie table for which we made all of the cookies and brownies for, freezing the dough a month before the wedding and then baking them all off the day before the wedding (with only moderate “quality control” testing along the way).
