Gold leaf has to be one of my favorite DIY goodies – within seconds it can jazz up even the simplest items, turning them into glitzy accents or show-stopping pieces. Such is the case with these gold leaf branch centerpieces, which can also be turned into place card holders. Thanks to Kathryn Godwin of Studio Cultivate for sharing the tips and tricks!

Damien Milan Photography

Typical of photographer Damien Milan’s work, is a magnetic intensity of closeness. There’s something about the way he captures a moment, something intoxicatingly real and raw. From the texture of landscape and dress, to the intimacy of pre-wedding preparatory steps, Damien’s approach is one of telling a story through detail – the quiet drama of technique and of tone.

Australia based, Damien and his partner Anastasia have an international scope and are available for booking in and around Europe to which they are already traveling every summer (June – September). If planning an international or destination wedding, consider the practicality and cost-saving of a trusted photographer already in situ.

By filling out this online form, couples planning a destination wedding in Europe this summer will even have a chance to receive 20% off their photography package.

Colorful Industrial Wedding Shoot

Wedding Design

Today we’re heading down to sunny Florida for some bright and cheery wedding inspiration, this time with an industrial chic style. Andi Diamond Photography, Winsor Event Studio, and Belle Fleur Studio. Everything was topped off beautifully with a rock-n-roll bride with bright blue hair and serious pin-up style.

From the photographer, Andi Diamond: We are so excited to share our Ybor City State Museum stylized wedding shoot. The overall theme was industrial- chic meets craft brew. The Ybor City State Museum was the perfect location with its white brick and cobblestones. This city landmark has been preserved from times when people would meet and play dominoes and it perfectly embodied the craft brew concept; Ybor is known for having a big craft brew presence. Our theme also gives a nod to the growing trends for craft cocktails and for the younger brides and grooms who have an alternative style. Our lovely bride, JoHannah, was the perfect fit for this alternative-glam theme. She is elegant with an edge (don’t you just love the tattoos and BLUE hair!?). Her rock ‘n’ roll meets pin-up inspired look dazzled in front of the camera. She was a natural! Her real life beau, Terence, was also a rockstar that day! Don’t let this tough guy fool you, he is one big (hello, muscles!) teddy bear! I loved being able to work with a real couple, and a gorgeous, tattooed one at that! They had no problems loving, touching, and giggling with each other!

For decor, we incorporated lots of metallic: aluminum, copper, and bronze. Industrial details like metal orbs in centerpiece; wood and galvanized chargers were also used.Our craft brew table had growlers (each growler had a slate sign with beer names) with different styles of brew as well as tasting for bride and groom to sample. Christi created a sign that said “BREW” that was made with bottle caps. All items were set on a pallet table and a display of pint glasses and vintage amber beer bottles and flowers were used as accents.The cake display was achieved with the use of filing drawers accented with flora. The stands of metal tubing was meant to resemble a keg.Our tablescape featured various vintage wooden chairs, a crushed metallic linen, stacked chargers made of wood and galvanized chargers, topped with bisque china and hem stitched napkins. Each table setting was accented with vintage mis-matched gold flat wear and fig colored glass wear. The menu display was a painted binder clip, secured to a metal roofing shingle. The table number was suspended above with the light instillation of Edison bulbs and metal baskets.The bride’s bouquet was aimed for the more alternative style – roses, ferns, orchids, ranunculus, and brewers wheat gave life and vibrant color to the shoot .We adored Terence’s indie-hipsteresque look! He donned a carved wood bowtie, suspenders, and of course some awesome tats! JoHannah wore a rock ‘n’ roll/Bettie Page inspired wedding gown. It featured a corset top and exposed boning- very vintage pin-up style!”
