Modern Highlands Wedding Editorial

Wedding Design

This beautiful wedding editorial is just the thing we need for this September day, and how perfect is the styling for the upcoming change of the season? Kati Hewitt Photography and Love Birds Vintage Rentals & Styling collaborated on this Scotland-inspired shoot, bringing in all of the classic elements of the jaw-dropping elements of the Highlands terrain with a hint of modernity. Bride & Bloom drew in some of the most awe-inducing, berry-toned blooms and foliage for the arrangements; great complementary pieces for the earthy feel of this entire shoot.

From the photographer, Kati Hewitt Photography: There are few places in Europe as beautifully enchanting as the Highlands of Scotland, a fact not lost on the Mother-Daughter design team at the helm of Love Birds Vintage Rentals & Styling. “We lived in Scotland when Tiffani was a teenager,” explained Bridgette, “so we brought a lot of items home with us when we returned to the States. There is something about the history and character of those pieces that shaped not just this shoot, but our overall design aesthetic and how we approach wedding design in general. Scotland is all about history, and in a sense, weddings are as well. We want to help our clients create spaces that speak to their own story; their own history, and their families’ histories. That’s what weddings are, after all, taking his history and her history, combining them and then building upon that to create your own.”

We took the idea of quintessential Scotland, with its intense green hills, beautiful ivy-lined rose gardens and stark gray architecture and then tempered it with a modern touch. There’s a lot of that going on in the region as well, always a push and pull between the traditional and the modern, and that idea extends to American wedding design as well. We really wanted to keep that traditional element, that sort of wink to the past, without creating a design that felt stuffy. Of course there are elements like the tartan throws that are decidedly traditional, but when you look at Kelli, her look is much more edgy. We wanted to show brides that it is possible to combine both in a way that works.

Working with Kati Hewitt of Kati Hewitt Photography, they were able to capture the essence of Scotland without the 8 hour plane ride. “Olde Dobbin Station was the perfect backdrop, and Kati captured it perfectly. It’s one of the oldest structures in the area dating back to the late 1890s. We knew we wanted to capitalize on that for this shoot. When we started adding in all the details, it just took us right back home.”

Plan My Wedding Please

Ever since I was in grade school, I was obsessed with my penmanship. I would not turn in my homework until it was perfect; it drove my mom crazy! I practiced writing every chance I had and eventually fell in love with this art form. Little did I know, it would be the reason I would fall in love with the wedding industry.

Plan My Wedding Please exists to make every wedding and event magical. My role as wedding planner and calligraphy artist, as cliche as it sounds, is to make your wildest dreams come true. From the little details in signage and invitations, to the big details in wedding gowns, caterers and florals, every detail is important. Every young girl dreams of her wedding day, and I am here to make those dreams become reality. I look forward to working with you!

Modern Speakeasy Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Shea Christine

Oh me oh my, do we ever have a treat for all you readers today! Desiree Dawn Events and Shea Christine got together to create this styled shoot inspired by a modern speakeasy, with touches of herringbone and days of yore at every turn. We adore this elegant take on a couple who met in a bar over cocktails and decided to embrace their first meeting through an intimate, humble elopement. Not to mention all the incredible paper goods from Make Merry!

From the event designer, Desiree: I think what inspires me the most is looking at old photographs of weddings, fashion, and era-specific details. Then, what I love to do is find a way to make them new again. That being said, move over trendy Chevron pattern, it’s time for your bigger, bolder brother to make way into the wedding world: Herringbone. You can find this delicious pattern in a lot of menswear, especially suits with a 1920s nod. It was a feature in our paper goods from Make Merry! and carried out through our groom’s hat, lamp shades, his bow tie, and the beautiful handmade garland that graced their table.

For more prohibition era inspiration, I looked for elements that gave that, “we met at a bar and fell in love over cocktails” vibe. A modern speakeasy is what we came up with. Imagine seeing your lover for the first time on your wedding day as he presents you with a celebratory shot to get you ready for your big day! We asked the craftsmen behind Bar-Lab to come up with two old-fashioned cocktails with a modern twist. I love the whimsy of a groom’s shot being called a Floral Garden. More so, with old-fashioned weddings, you’d get married, have drinks and eat cake. So simple.

After a luscious portrait session and a short exchange of vows, the Mister and his Missus sat down at their vintage table with a very colorful and modern tables-cape. We used a combination of vintage rentals and mod rentals. The vintage cake cutter was made unique by ‘dipping’ the handle in copper paint, another one of our vintage DIY touches brought to life. Copper is such a swanky color, it gives you that shimmer that so many long for but still has a solid, industrial feel. We hand foiled the place card holders with copper and continued with that sparkle very subtly on the cake, in the flowers, and in our brides accessories.
