Kohl Mansion Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Gem Photo

Anna and Ben’s wedding is all sorts of gorgeous. Once I was able to pull myself from gushing over the images that Gem Photo captured, I could pinpoint the numerous things I love about their nuptials. Starting right with the color palette. With touches of blush pink, aubergine, mauve, greens and grays, the florals by Huckleberry Karen Designs with event concept by none other than Yelena of The Stylish Soiree, makes this wedding one for the books.

From the bride, Anna: Ben and I are both old souls, so when we stumbled upon the nostalgic Kohl Mansion we knew it was the perfect venue for our autumn wedding. We wanted our day to reflect our personalities and love for one another in addition to having a cozy and romantic atmosphere. Our decor was pretty simple to complement the grandeur details of the space, and consisted of family photos, books, and lots and lots of candles. Our florals were feminine pastel colors with pops of aubergine and even some artichoke!

Our advice to brides and grooms: Try not to sweat the small stuff, stand your ground when it comes to wedding decisions that are important to you, and make sure you get down on the dance floor!

My company, Crimson Letters creates unique hand painted wedding stationery, specialising in opulently painted, heavily illustrated design work, with calligraphy. All items are digitally printed from a master watercolour or acrylic artwork piece and individually and lovingly painted upon. Using only the finest papers and card stock sourced from London And Paris.

I’m a British designer with a degree in textile design, artist and a person with a passion for intricate creativity who’s inspired by all fine things, whether it’s food, interiors or architecture. I’m influenced heavily by my love of travelling, my rich heritage and travelling frequently through the Mediterranean where I have family in Portugal and Paris. I’m exhilarated and humbled by the beauty of this world. Bringing these ideas back to my design studio, each piece is fuelled from the cultures across the world.

I enjoy bringing a fresh decadent approach to wedding invitations, which are a timeless medium. I have always loved weddings and seeing the bride in her white dress has always been a magical moment for me. I feel completely over the moon to be able to create irreplaceable memoirs that the bride can look back on one day with a huge smile.

When I’m not busy in my design studio, I love exploring new parts of Europe, trying to improve my hopelessly basic French and Portuguese skiing, cross stitching, kissing my sons, watching period dramas and painting whilst drinking copious amounts of tea.

Mountaintop Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Catherine Marciniak

Deep reds, woodsy details, a mountaintop setting — all of these come to mind when we think of our favorite winter wedding motifs. Photographer Catherine Marciniak and stylist Carla Esutache of Style Perfect Weddings and Events whipped up this styled shoot with all of these visions in mind, choosing the mountains of North Carolina as their backdrop. Everything was perfectly topped off by some lovely floral arrangements from From this Day Forward Wedding and Special Event Design.

Bethany and Dan Photography

“Photography so fresh you’ll want to slap it.”

In love wedding photographers with our suitcases packed for adventures. We specialize in personality driven portraiture and emotional storytelling.

Our number one goal on a wedding day is to show truth. We want the vulnerable honest imperfect and gritty real-life stuff. Ugly crying from how stinking happy you are to be married. We like messy hair and un-fluffed wedding dresses with dirt on the bottom, undone ties and tipsy wedding guests. Bring it.
