Moody Agate Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Plum & Oak Photo

I can’t tell you how excited I am to share this beautiful Plum & Oak Photo collaboration with Kelsey Rae Designs and Carla Kayes Floral Design. The old world feel of the venue, the moodiness of the photos and the shoot altogether, and how much this reminds me of an 19th-century romantic novel are a few of the things I adore so much about it. The big topic of this whole shoot, though, is that stunning agate-designed cake by Sweet Cheeks Bakery. Agate is popping up everywhere and I’m glad it’s found a spot with weddings. Use them as table numbers, decorate your floral table runner with agate colors that stand out, or like this shoot, plant them onto your wedding cake.

From the event designer, Kelsey Rae Designs: The second I stepped foot on Vista Valley Country Club, I could just feel how special it was. It has an old world charm that makes it super unique, and now one of my favorite venues in San Diego County. Instinctively, Elyse of Plum and Oak Photo and I wanted to do a shoot that showcased the unexpected. As with most things we do together, the idea clicked right away for both of us. We looked at each other and said, let’s go moody and bring in agate and other things you wouldn’t think would be in this type of romantic setting.

Carnation and Godetia Wedding Flowers

Wedding Design

Photos by:

When we saw this wedding bouquet from DeFiore Photography and Hana Style Designs, we just knew we had to share it. Carnations are often left aside in lieus of more glamorous bloms, but this fluffy bouquet make is proof carnations can have a space in the stylish scene too – like in this post we shared a few days ago. Read on for more inspiration behind this lovely greenhouse shoot:

From the photographer, Danielle: As spring looms, I tend to think about blooming flowers, feminine essence and the return of light. In fact, spring was the inspirations for my recent shoot at Bath Gardens with Brittany from Hanna Style Designs and Keegan Steele from Steele the Spotlight. It was so much fun playing with light, color and fresh combinations right before the spring wedding season! The ivories, light peaches and coral colors add a great backdrop that helps the navy pop, providing amazing detail to a simple bouquet while keeping it fresh, light and naturally feminine. Carnations, although an uncommon wedding flower choice, really offers a delicate softness to the arrangement and gives it a rustic feel.

Garden Romance Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

I might be a sucker for a classic pink and red color palette, but can you blame me? There are so many inspiring details to behold in this styled shoot put together by Beijos Events and Megan Welker Photography, but we have to give a special shout-out to the incredible floral design by Siren Floral Co.. That bouquet is a show-stopper for sure!

From the event designers, Beijos Events: As far as the inspiration behind this shoot, simply put, my partners and I have a love affair with Anthropologie and BHLDN (who doesn’t, right??). So when we were presented with the opportunity to work with them we definitely had a “pinch me” moment! We hadn’t really had the chance to work and style a vintage garden wedding and we really had strong romantic vision for this one. The first and major story behind this shoot was a vintage ballerina gets married in a secret English garden, and the ideas came flowing from there.

It was great to work with such delicate materials and textiles for this shoot. We wanted the rentals from the furniture pieces down to the flatware to be rustic and antique, with mismatched pieces that told an old story. The invites we wanted were focused around the garden, playing on a pretty fall burgundy/peach floral combo for Fall. The flowers were beyond amazing playing on bold pretty to soft herbal and organic looking pieces you find in a real English garden. The desserts were petite and perfect for delicate setting, and the hair and make really played into the ballerina inspiration with a messy bun and dewy pinks. Everything came together easily since as previously stated the “love affair” is so strong!!
