New Year’s Eve Elopement Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

There are many things to love in this holiday shoot from Aubrey Renee Photography, but what immediately stopped us in our tracks was that beyond incredible gown from Badgley Mischka. Can you imagine a more perfect wedding gown for a New Year’s Eve wedding? Add in some dark and dreamy floral arrangements from Jaclyn Journey and chalkboard-inspired invitations from Days Gone Design and you’ve got some seriously chic inspiration!

Seattle Fall Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

Every time I look at this wedding from Carly Bish, I get the biggest smile — because of the bride! Not only does she have some amazing style, she also has the most infectious smile I’ve ever seen. With a fall wedding in Seattle, a little rain was almost a given, but I think it only added to the romance of these wedding portraits. And how great are all the dahlia arrangements made by the bride and her friends and family?

From the bride, Jessica: Our wedding style was urban-whimsy with vintage touches and lots of full and semi-DIY. We are both artistic, so hand making elements of our wedding was important to us and came natural. We wanted to create a fun, hand made, not-at-all-stuffy day.

outdoor first looks

I’d call our wedding eclectic, like us. We chose gray, ivory, teal and olive green as our colors, with gray having the strongest presence. We DIYed as much as we felt we could, including email save the dates, invitations, guestbook, flowers, music playlist, dessert, favors and our ceremony backdrop.

dahlia wedding bouquets

I always wanted to DIY the flowers, but worried it would be a headache. It was one of my favorite things! The day before our wedding, my best friend and I went to the farmers market in our hometown of Issaquah, WA to get flowers. We purchased 5 large dahlia-filled bouquets and spent less than $60. I have some dahlia plants at my parents home, and my mother-in-law also picked up some flowers to add to the mix. My maid of honor met us at my house to assemble all the bouquets and mason jar arrangements. The morning of the wedding, another one of my bridesmaids helped me wrap the bouquets in twine. A true team effort! I’d highly recommend doing this, if the season is right and you aren’t super particular and willing to work with what the farmers have.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? The wedding and all its details are secondary to the happiness of the couple getting married! Don’t sweat the small (and the not-so-small) stuff; if the linens are slightly off tone, or your dress hem is filthy (like mine became), or people don’t mail in their RSVP, do your best to let it go. We were blessed to have some of our friends and family reminding us of this during the planning process. Also, do whatever you can to live in the moment, and take moments to yourself (and your new spouse) as needed!

Alexis June Weddings

Hello beautiful! We’re Brandi + Ryan, the husband-wife photographers behind Alexis June Weddings. So who is Alexis June? They are the two loves of our life, our daughters, Kierstyn {whose middle name is Alexis} and Kaija {who was born in June}. Two years ago we sold everything we own to pursue our dreams and move across the country to NYC. We’ve been married for nine years and still crazy in love. Ryan speaks Norwegian. Brandi loves everything about Norway. Ryan has his MBA from Notre Dame, but loves to cook. Brandi was a journalist in the United States Air Force and eats everything Ryan cooks. Together with our girls we live in Atlanta, Georgia and cherish every day together.

Being wedding photographers is an honor and a privilege, to be a part of one of the most important moments in a someone’s life is deeply personal. Capturing a couple’s love story together makes what we do even more special. We have laughed, we have cried and we have experienced those joyous moments when its more about two individuals joining as one and less about the details. It’s about the marriage. It’s about the future. Love is a gorgeous thing and we are truly passionate about what we do. We believe everyone has a story and it should be told.

This is our story, what is yours?

CRIMSON LETTERS

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.
