Blooming Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Milton Photography

Ever since this styled shoot loosely inspired by Frida Kahlo landed in our inbox, we haven’t been able to take our eyes off it. Every bit is styled impeccably – from the gold place setting, to the floral crown, to the groom’s dapper blue checked suit, to the lush burgundy bouquet. Milton Photography, Birds & Honey Events, and Akiko Floral Artistry absolutely outdid themselves with this one!

“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.” -Frida Kahlo

From the event designer, Mona of Birds & Honey Events: Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón, better known as Frida Kahlo, has always been an inspiration to me. Frida, to me, was the epitome of a beautiful and “confident in all the right ways” kind of woman. Frida Kahlo was a “gem” in the truest and strongest sense of the word. Ever since I was a little girl I felt such a deep connection to her. Her eyes, her lips. I remember falling in love over and over again with her and her art. All those colours. All those colours and emotions she evoked. She was a revolutionary gal who liked to live in constant self-expression; I believe this is most evident in her art, the way she dressed, and the way she carried herself. She basically never gave a damn what anyone thought of her. I have always wanted to pay tribute to this beautiful woman and I soon began dreaming of how I could bring all of those beautiful colors and emotions to life as wedding inspiration for those brides who were wanting a wedding that was both soft and powerful all at the same time.

Bold Geometric Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Full disclosure: we fell in love with this styled shoot within seconds of seeing the first image. We’re no strangers to geometric wedding inspiration, but this styled shoot from JBM Weddings and Tinsel & Twine ups the ante by incorporating bold colors, inspired paper goods, and housing it all in a Brooklyn whiskey distillery.

From the stylist, Erica of Tinsel & Twine: The Kings County Distillery set up their operations in the Brooklyn Navy Yard in 2010, making it New York City’s oldest (legal) distillery. The stately brick building, which was formerly the Paymaster’s Office, is now home base for nearly continuous whiskey and moonshine productions. With a location just adjacent to Dumbo and the Brooklyn Bridge Park, it wasn’t long before locals started inquiring about using the space for weddings and events. Over the last six months, our Tinsel & Twine team has partnered with the The Kings County Distillery to bring those bourbon-inspired events to life.

We were thrilled to team up with some of our favorite local talents to produce a beautifully styled photo shoot. The building’s raw, industrial facade inspired us to create a visual story that married quintessential “Brooklyn” edginess with traditionally romantic and femme elements. To contrast with the space’s varied wood surfaces and overall whiskey brown tone, we established a color palette rich with pops of orange, pink, turquoise, and mint accented by rich gold details. This is especially true of the vignettes set in the Barrel Room, with bride and groom posing amidst a sea of aging bourbon. Strong lines and geometric shapes provided a modern element as a foil to the building’s existing stately architecture.

This color scheme, along with key textural details, can be seen in our florals, as well as the stationery by Fourteen-Forty and signage by And Here We Are. Our bride’s slim column gowns, provided by Gabrielle Bridal, have strongly angled bias seams and are balanced by a vintage fur capelet. Her gilded flower headpiece and belt by Hushed Commotion also add a bit of old world feminine glamour. The ceremony backdrop and fringed table canopy by Michelle Bablo create a sense of whimsy and unexpected color, making use of the venue’s overhead space. We are look forward to raising a glass and hosting very special celebrations at the Kings County Distillery.

Rhode Island Summer Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Photos by:

Lev Kuperman

Every little thing about this wedding from Lev Kuperman just floors me. When this couple first met, they were both studying celestial navigation, and this detail didn’t go unnoticed in their wedding decor – namely, the constellation seating chart and table names. Congratulations on your impeccable wedding, Mollie and Brian!

From the bride, Mollie: I was born in Providence, RI and met my husband on Cape Cod while I was in SEA Semester (a marine science study abroad program), so even though we both now live in Washington State we knew it would be most meaningful to return to that area for our wedding. We both have strong connections to the water (Brian’s now a navigation officer at sea) so I knew that it was important to incorporate a coastal feel to the wedding. The venue was perfect for us because the grounds were surrounded by the Providence Harbor. When Brian and I first met we were both studying celestial navigation and I think there’s something eternally romantic about using the stars as your guide. That’s where the inspiration for a lot of the decor came from.

We’re both laid back people who enjoy the outdoors which is why we had our ceremony outside. We loved that after dinner our guests could roam the grounds outside, mingle on the deck, or jump on the dance floor inside the bakehouse where our reception was held. We wanted to keep everything feeling authentic and local because few locations can beat the simple beauty of coastal RI in late June. That’s why it was important to me that all our flowers were local and in season. I envisioned an understated, somewhat whimsical wedding with an underlying feeling of classic elegance. Navy and white were the base colors and then to add a bit of ethereal, mid-summer charm I cut these conservative, nautical colors with lots of pastels. The braids in my hair, my floral head wreath, the bells for the guests, the English Roses as well as the hand-fasting ritual during the ceremony were all a nod to our English and Irish heritage.

My dad constructed our white framed table seating display, I picked the fabric backing and wrote out the tags. We decided to pick a constellation for each table and I made the table signs. I picked up the ribbons for the boutonnieres and bouquets, as well as the vases for the centerpieces. My sister-in-law found a beautiful clam shell with an ink drawing of a tall ship done by a local artist. It reminded me of the ship I sailed on during the study abroad when I first met Brian so we used some ribbon to turn it into a ring holder. I also took a photo of Brian and myself so that I could recreate an accurate portrayal of our silhouettes for the cake topper, programs, and card box. It took some time to draw our silhouettes in a way that I imagined we would look on our wedding day and then carefully cut them out but I love how they looked when I was done!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? My favorite art teacher would always stress, “form before detail!” My advice in regards to wedding preparation, especially if you love details (and even if you don’t I promise unexpected details will pop up regardless), get as much of the ‘form’ of your wedding done as soon as you can so that you have lots of remaining time to create and perfect the little touches. With that being said it was exciting to see all the planning come to life the day of the wedding but what I remember most fondly from that day was how sincerely happy our guests were for us. I remember how incredible it was to see our closest friends and relatives, most of whom traveled so far to celebrate with us. I remember how meaningful the ceremony was and what a handsome couple my grandparents still were in their suit and dress. I remember how dapper the little boys looked when they walked down the aisle and how sweet our careful little flower girl was not wanting to drop a single petal. At the root of it all weddings are about people; the interactions you have with them are what you remember best about your wedding day. The rest is just a backdrop, albeit a lovely backdrop that you work hard to create. So have fun but don’t be devastated if a handful of things never quite get done. Just invite the people who mean the most to you and keep in mind what the day is all about: you’re marrying your own true love!

“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.
