Bohemian Wedding Inspiration at a Magnolia Plantation

Wedding Design

Photos by:

There are almost no words for how delighted the bursts of color in this shoot from Christina Lilly Photography and Gilded Lily Events delighted me. With incredible touches of bohemian flair, bright fuchsia and teals and a couple so beautiful it nearly hurts to look at them, we just can’t get enough!

From the photographer, Christina: As a photographer that just got married myself I wanted to inspire thinking outside of the box. I wanted to portray a wedding reminding couples it can be all about them. I saw sweeping Spanish moss and a rainbow of bohemian color as my backdrop. So I decided to take my idea to a Magnolia Plantation in Charleston SC.

Together with other creative minds I managed to produce what would be an ideal wedding for that colorful, music loving, bohemian couple. We played Tame Impala to set the mood and spray painted gold and hot pink everywhere. Along with feathers and a real actual rainbow I think we hit the nail on the head. My music loving couple really showed it could just be a simple serenade at dusk to say I do.

Sailboats, waves, octopus and jellyfish are just a few of the amazing seaworthy designs featured in Concertina Press’s line of vintage inspired nautical wedding invitations and stationery.

“Ruth is an exceptional artist and artisan! She was very prompt to stay in communication with me throughout my ordering process. She worked with me to make sure that all my needs were met exactly. It was so comforting to work with her through the stressful process of ordering the perfect wedding invitations! I absolutely LOVE the way her products turned out, and cannot wait to send them to all my guests! Thank you SO MUCH Ruth, your kindness and professionalism have helped me more than you know!” ” – Emily D.

After living in the small town of Woods Hole on Cape Cod for nearly 11 years, Ruth, the owner and designer of Concertina Press, moved down to the sunny East coast of Florida to be closer to family. Her Cape Cod map save the date is still widely popular with couples getting married on the Cape, along with the matching wedding invitation. Since moving south she’s added more tropical designs including seahorses, sand dollars and waves.

Ruth takes pride in customer service, and making the online ordering process as easy as possible while still remaining personalized. You can purchase samples of any of her invitations online, or contact her directly with any questions or for a quote.

Today’s wedding from Megan Ann Photography has the cheeriness of bright blues and yellows with a little pop of gold sparkle in the bride’s Christian Louboutin pumps. The newlyweds designated each table with a different state that holds special meaning to them — just the kind of personal touch we love!

From the bride, Elizabeth: I grew up in Southern California, but Jeremy and I live in Boston and had more out of town guests than local friends and family. We really wanted to give our out of town guests a feel for Southern California. The location was the first thing we chose – Levyland gave our guests the Southern California beach atmosphere, but was a pretty blank slate for us to work with!

Instead of choosing a color scheme, my mom and I picked out a fabric line that we incorporated into many of the wedding’s elements. I picked Joel Dewberry’s Modern Meadow as I loved the colors and felt like it really would bring out the best in the setting (plus, Jeremy’s favorite color – and eyes – are blue).

My mom and I are very crafty, and, as a result, the DIY projects were plentiful: I designed all of our invitations, Jeremy screen printed them, and a whole bunch of friends helped with assembly. I made all of the escort cards, table numbers, and signage, along with the guest book, my mom quilted gorgeous table runners for each of the tables, made the ring bearer pillow, and we made chocolate dipped pretzels as seating cards, all of the guys’ boutonnieres and ties. Friends of ours transformed the cinder block garage into a beautiful, soft dance floor covered in ribbons, with custom lighting.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? One of my favorite things was the small ways I incorporated our parents and grandparents special days into ours – we used my parents’ toasting flutes, my grandparents’ (and aunt/uncle; mom/dad) cake toppers; his grandparents’ cake servers. I also wore my grandmother’s ring and carried a hankie from his grandmother. Those small things meant the world to me, and to our families and added a wonderful family touch to the wedding.
