Bridal Portraits During a Roman Sunrise

Wedding Design

I fell madly in love with Rome the first time I visited, and this beautiful bridal shoot is reminding me why it was love at first sight. Lilly Red Creative, Camilla Cascino, and Christine Cater collaborated to create this heart-achingly lovely scene during a Roman sunrise with two wedding gowns we’re crushing on, hard. Thank you to this wonderful team!

Dusty Toned Wedding Ideas Inspired by the Baltic Sea

Wedding Design

Be still our hearts — this styled shoot inspired by the Baltic Sea is filling us with all kinds of good vibes today. Angela Zion Photography, Bespoken, and Statice Floral created this moody ocean-inspired shoot with shades of lavender, mauve, and greys, with some seriously beautiful tableware to tie it all together. Wait until you see the cake with the most incredible sugar oyster shells, which we for sure thought were the real thing!

Downtown Birmingham Spring Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Photos by Heart

It seems like spring offers some of the prettiest weddings around, thanks in part to bountiful lush foliage and fresh blooms — quite a few of which you’ll see in this styled shoot from Photos by Heart and Vera Flora Design. Captured in downtown Birmingham, the shoot blends easy spring style with an urban industrial vibe (we’re loving the exposed brick) plus a cake so pretty, it’d be a near crime to eat it.

Classic styles and clean designs are the first words that come to mind with this Caroline Ro-photographed wedding in Charleston. With Sweetgrass Social working their coordinating and design magic, Blair and Jordin stuck to a very becoming color palette of white and green for their venue’s aesthetic. Branch Design Studio took charge of all the pretty florals, sticking close to the elegant setting of this southern affair.

Blush Pink Wedding at Carondelet House

Priscila Valentina

Today’s real wedding takes place at one of our favorite LA venues – the Carondelet House! Ever so dynamic, this space features everything from an urban loft interior to stained glass windows to whitewashed brick. Akemi and Brian’s biggest priority when it came to designing their special day was creating an event that reflected, well, them, and we’re happy to say that their wedding was a warm celebration of love, love and nothing but love! XOXO Events made sure the entire day went off without a hitch, and they exchanged “I do’s” beneath a charming combination of chandeliers and exposed beams. We are in serious awe of The Little Branch, whose tangled bundles of ranunculus, anemone, peonies and roses decorated the brick walls in a sliding scale of pink! You can see it all here in these moment-filled images from Priscila Valentina – we dare you not to shed a couple tears.

Italian Island Elopement Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Monica Leggio

Today’s styled shoot is nothing short of belissimo! We have completely fallen for the poetic love story Monica Leggio captures on the small Italian island of Ponza. The deep affection these lovebirds have for one another is made prevalent in the urgency, warmth and personal elements of their elopement. Rosenvoile and La Rosa Canina brought the story to life, incorporating details like antique lace, magnificent curved garlands and an intimate tablescape overlooking tight clusters of homes resting along the Mediterranean Sea. The reception was nothing short of a dream, and we are simply enamored by the twinkle lights, dripping candles and authentic Italian feast. Cin Cin!

Italian Island Elopement Inspiration - photo by Monica Leggio http://ruffledblog.com/italian-island-elopement-inspiration

From the photographer, Monica Leggio: Ponza has always been kind of a second home to me, so it was quite natural for me as a wedding photographer to start thinking about a way to share my love for its beautiful colors and sceneries, its deep and enchanting silence, its simple and genuine people. The heart of its uniqueness as an island lies essentially in its authenticity, and that’s what inspired us most during the creative process that led us to the final concept. Looking at Italian literature, we draw a lot of our inspiration in terms of settings and moods from Elsa Morante’s “L’isola di Arturo”, while iconic movies as “Il postino” and “Baaria” were basically our starting point when coming to tell Maria and Silverio’s story.

Laura Ivanova

When your soon-to-be proposes to you in front of Cinderella’s castle at Disney World, it makes sense that you’d want to add some fairy tale elements into your wedding day in tribute. Laura Ivanova captured the wedding of Ashley and Jon, a couple who made sure their big day was totally infused with their personalities and loves. This included a heaping portion of pink blooms put together by Sadie’s Couture Floral & Event Styling, ranging from roses to anemones to the all-time wedding favorite, peonies.

Elegant Calhoun Beach Club Wedding - http://ruffledblog.com/elegant-calhoun-beach-club-wedding

From the bride, Ashley: We wanted the entire day to be a reflection of our personalities and our relationship. Jon has always been traditional and a bit old-fashioned, whereas I tend to like things that are trendy and unique, so our wedding was a combination of our two styles. We also kept things fun and playful by adding in details that were special to us. Jon proposed in front of Cinderella’s Castle in Disney World, so we had fun creating a bit of a fairy tale theme to go along with that; my Hayley Paige gown (I called it my princess dress) and our ‘happily ever after’ cake topper were two places you can see that. Additionally, we had both lived our entire lives in Minnesota but knew that we would be moving to New Orleans shortly after the wedding, so we tried to throw in some very Minnesotan details where we could to celebrate the state we love so much! Our venues were situated in our favorite spot on the lakes in Minneapolis, just blocks from our apartment building. Taking pictures on the beach where we had walked so many times before felt special and almost surreal. Jon and I are huge hockey fans and one of our favorite things to do together is go to Wild hockey games so my parents surprised us by having the Wild mascot show up during our cocktail hour. Having him there was a huge hit with guests and the pictures that we got are priceless!

Pink has always been my favorite color so it was an easy choice for my flowers. My parents also had a pink wedding 30 years ago and their marriage means so much to me, so I wanted to give a nod to that. I am proud that even as a medical student, I managed to plan and execute a lot of the wedding details on my own! Two projects that I am really proud of are the Mr. and Mrs. signs for the back of our chairs at the reception and the table of photos displaying our parents’ and grandparents’ wedding photos.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Have fun with the planning! Try to throw in little details that are unique to YOU! I think it’s great to find inspiration from other weddings online and in magazines, but at the end of the day you should look at your wedding day and be able to say that no one else in the world could have a wedding exactly like yours. The personal details will be the ones that stand out when you think back on your day.

Moss-Filled Michigan Wedding

Romantic Weddings

If you’re looking to get inspired by a wedding with a stunningly clean and green wedding palette, Agnes and Jeff’s Michigan wedding is it. Shot by MorningWild Photography, it’s got these whimsical and romantic details that had us wanting more and more. Rebecca from Ideal Events & Design sought to bring Agnes’s elegant woodland wedding ideas to life and it’s quite safe to say she achieved that goal along with Damsel Floral‘s unbelievably good centerpieces. Those glimmers of peach florals in the arrangements were the perfect touch of color!

From the planner, Rebecca from Ideal Events & DesignI was thrilled when Agnes reached out to me to work on her upcoming wedding to Jeff. As an art director, Agnes had a wonderful vision for their wedding day and I was thrilled to help bring her elegant woodland wedding to life. Agnes had already chosen a beautiful location, a private white barn at Bieker Farms, which is nestled between beautiful woodlands and an apple orchard, so we began working on securing the rest of her vendors and bringing together all of the elements of the day.

Of course the location was such a feature of the design for this wedding – Agnes wanted to highlight the woods that surrounded the property because she and Jeff often escape on weekends to family woodlands in Northern Michigan. Incorporating moss (collected from the family land) and ferns was a way to bring their life into the design elements. The bride and her friends spent a day creating the gorgeous moss covered sign to hang behind the bar and ferns were featured in the centerpieces by Damsel Floral. Agnes even created a fern logo to use throughout the wedding stationery.

As we began to build the day, it was always evident that Agnes and Jeff kept their guests at the forefront of their minds. They truly wanted everyone in attendance to feel part of their celebration – from ensuring polka music was played for her Polish family members to serving family style meals to encourage conversation – so many decisions focused on their family and friends. As the evening went on and the celebration lasted well into the night with late night pizzas and a sparkler send off for the newlyweds, I do believe their guests enjoyed every minute of it!

Country Mountain Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Rugged and dainty is what we’d say if you asked us how to describe this beautiful Marcucci Photography wedding inspiration shoot. The mountains and the countryside are a wonder all on their own, and this shoot pulled together by Love by Lynzie Events centered around this peaceful landscape dazzled us even more. Flower 597 focused on the abundance of greenery in these parts and made the most impressive tablescape garland and bridal bouquet sweetly dotted with white fleurs. We can’t get enough of it or anything else in these shots!

navy blue suits - photo by Marcucci Photography http://ruffledblog.com/country-mountain-wedding-inspiration

From the event designer, Love by Lynzie Events: Our shoot is inspired by the wonder and rustic feel of being in the country and the mountains but with a modern twist. We brought together materials that are natural but not always associated with each other. With a colour palette of forest green, copper, marble, and wood, we sought out to bring warmth and a sense of edge to the beautiful all white barn. Nagham from Love by Lynzie created marbled paper for all the stationary and place cards with calligraphy by Cat’s Lettering. The luscious garland by Flower 597 that ran down the centre of the tablescape was embellished with copper painted fruit.

Modern Downtown Savannah Wedding

Modern Weddings

Today’s wedding is hailing from the ever-beautiful Savannah, Georgia. When you have plenty of lovely sights and scenery in this town, it’s no wonder why Emily and Adam wanted to say their I Do’s here. Mackensey Alexander Photography captured the couple’s beautiful wedding day along with all of the very fine details with it. This warm-colored wedding adds such a heavy dash of sophistication and modernity, and what we love the most is that the couple came up with the design all on their own with Ivory + Beau helping them execute their vision.  They kept the color palette toned down and went for cool browns and soft neutrals, and then went bold with the flowers and enlisted Colonial House of Flowers for their skills. This elegant fête is one for the books!

savannah weddings - photo by Mackensey Alexander Photography http://ruffledblog.com/modern-downtown-savannah-wedding

From the bride, Emily: Adam and I wanted our wedding to feel like an intimate, joyful dinner with our friends and family. We wanted our wedding to feel formal yet understated, modern yet warm, and elegant yet relaxed. We wanted every moment to genuinely feel like us, and to reflect our joy. More than anything, we wanted to give our guests the opportunity to feel our love – both the love between Adam and me, and the love we have for all of them.

From the photographers, The Lockharts: When organizing this inspiration session, our vision was to create a romantic environment that embraces the organic beauty of nature. A garden setting was a must since it easily encompasses this dreamy, outdoor vision. Chandor Gardens in Weatherford, Texas not only created a gorgeous earthy scenery with its greenery and flowers, but the formal English accents, as well as ancient Chinese architecture made it into the picture-perfect romantic environment.

Whimsical Engine Room Wedding

Romantic Weddings

With a timeless color palette of pink, gold, and blue, it’s all but impossible to go wrong. Sarah and Branden embraced these colors on their wedding day in Georgia with Casto Photography & Cinema and Cote Designs, celebrating a love for each other surrounded by the most important people in their lives. This wedding has a bit of everything, so let’s jump on in!

From the photographers, Casto Photography & Cinema: High school sweethearts Sarah & Branden envisioned a destination Georgia wedding celebrating their new life in the peach state while incorporating their love for their hometown in Maryland and love for the Baltimore Orioles (Branden is a pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles organization). They wanted to create a day that was both unique but would remain timeless. Incorporating the chippy brick walls of the venue, hints of copper, a bold color palette of blues and pinks, paired with sunlight streaming through the windows and classic pairings, Sarah & Branden’s wedding was truly one of a kind and a reflection of their sweet love.

Los Angeles Foodie Wedding

Modern Weddings

How could a wedding between two restaurant owners not be good? Steve and Shanti’s LA wedding, photographed by Christina Lilly Photography, is full of wildflowers, a carefree bohemian attitude, and of course, all the good food you could hope to eat. Where else would such a beautiful wedding feel at home but SmogShoppe?

From the photographer, Christina Lilly Photography: The couple are restaurant owners and have a love for food and community. Steve is from upstate NY and comes from a family or artists and innovators. Shanti is from Southern California and comes from a family of hippies and her name basically sums her up, Shanti Star Church. They decided to bring their wedding to California where all of Shanti’s family and friends could add their touch to the wedding. The couple is passionate about incorporating surrounding artisans and they do the same in their restaurant back home.

Snow White Inspired Bridal Session

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Joanna Fisher

Today’s styled shoot can be summed up as “Snow White reimagined.” The team of photographer Joanna Fisher and designer Bleached Butterfly approached the famed fairy tale maiden with a modern twist, using a bold color palette of blue and red and adding in soft blush pink and pops of gold. The result? Well, it’s just about as romantic as it gets.

From the photographer, Joanna Fisher: Inspired both by Grimm’s original fairytale Snow White, and by the modern spin on the story as interpreted by ABC’s Once Upon A Time, this Snow White inspired styled bridal is the culmination of so many industry creatives’ hard work and creativity. Styled by the talented Autumn Kramer of the Bleached Butterfly, her vision for the re-telling of Snow White is truly a modern fairytale. Soft blush and gold accents are elevated by the deep reds and blues of the decor and florals, bringing this story to life.

Our bride is wearing the elegant and whimsical “Severine” gown by Monique Lhullier, provided by the Plumed Serpent Bridal. Crowned with the delicate hairpiece and jewelry by Paris, the bride truly looks like she has stepped out of the pages of a storybook. Her vows, in the form of lyrics by Mumford and Sons, are presented on the Black Velvet ribbon by Silk and Willow, hand penned by Molly Shanahan, Calligrapher.

The cake, by Baked Desserts, bears the famous lines of the song from the Disney classic, “Someday My Prince Will Come”, and the theme is carried through in the beautifully penned love letters the bride holds. Showered in the words left behind by her elusive love, the image of our ‘princess’ standing in the midst of falling antique letters is one of the photographer’s personal favorites.

Al Fresco Beach Wedding in La Jolla

Beach Weddings

This gorgeous Tuscan inspired wedding created by Evangeline Lane Photography, First Comes Love San Diego and Organic Elements is nothing short of breathtaking. The touches of Italian influences throughout every part of this wedding will make you believe that it took place right in an Italian villa. From the gelato bar to the lush florals, this wedding is absolutely stunning.

Tuscan countryside inspired wedding in La Jolla - photo by Evangeline Lane Photography http://ruffledblog.com/tuscan-countryside-inspired-wedding-in-la-jolla

From the photographer, Sarah: We wanted a Tuscan daytime family style wedding. We wanted it to feel like we were at someone’s home. I used to live in Florence and spent a lot of time in Tuscany out in the countryside. It was important to recreate this feeling. The hotel was a perfect place to do that. We didn’t have a color scheme per se but we wanted natural colors and not one color to stand out.

Flower recipe: I had a really long cascading bouquet. My mom also had one at her wedding in 1984. Mine had coral garden roses, soft pink peonies, pale coral dahlias, soft orange dahlias, tuberose, dark centered white anemones, white ranunculus, silver dollar eucalyptus, and olive branches.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? We planned it in 6 months, it was perfect. Not too much time to stress. We also loved having it on a Sunday so we could enjoy the whole weekend with friends and family. I would highly suggest a Sunday wedding… We all went to the pool after and that night we just relaxed. I loved having it during the day because we got to be with all of our guests and have fun.

From the photographer, Evangeline Lane Photography: Sarah and Aristo have a love for all things Italy. While planning their La Jolla wedding, it was important to find a location that allowed us to create an intimate feeling of having your closest friends and family over at a private villa. We found the perfect setting in Estancia – the Olive Lawn felt like the Tuscan countryside with steps where the couple said their “I Dos.” In lieu of a wedding party the couple had the children enter before them – with flower wands and crowns. For the reception, we brought in a sheer chiffon canopy to shade the garden and adorned extra long tables with burlap table cloths topped with crisp white linens and etched glassware. Each place setting was completed with a menu with a place card clipped to it along with a sprig of fresh herbs. For florals, large footed bowls overflowed with greenery and flowers of all different colors and the end of the tables were capped with flower runners that reached the floor. To complete the theme, food was served family style, there was a gelato bar and of course plenty of Italian wines served tableside.

Everything about today’s feature wholeheartedly embraces the true spirit of a southern wedding. A family-style reception dinner, a choir singing “Oh Happy Day!,” and a classic bridal look are just some of the pieces that fit together to make Beth and Zack’s day a beautiful one to remember. Photos by Heart, Christina Sloan Events, and Studio Flower all worked together wonderfully here!

From the event designer and planner, Christina Sloan Events: A crisp, October evening and a gorgeous villa was the setting for Beth and Zack’s wedding. An intimate gathering of family and friends came together to celebrate the couple and was treated to an elegant, Southern-inspired family style meal and tons of gorgeous details, from the custom, hand-lettered mirror menu and place cards to the beautiful place settings.

Beth and Zack wanted an evening that treated their guests to Southern hospitality, full of elegant details and custom design, while still incorporating their fun personalities. As a surprise to her new groom and her guests, Beth arranged for the Birmingham Mass Community Choir to come out during the recessional with a cheerful rendition of “Oh, Happy Day.” From beginning to end, it was a day of love, celebration, good food, and gorgeous details.

Ethereal Chapel Wedding

Elegant Weddings

Bride Lindsey knew she wanted her wedding day to be both ethereal and classic, and her chosen color palette of green and white helped her achieve this goal. Jen House Design rocked the floral design, while The Compass Points Here captured everything to total perfection for a lifetime of memories!

From the bride, Lindsey: Pretty, ethereal, and classic. That is how I described my vision for our wedding to our florist and I think that is exactly how it turned out. Plus it was a day full of love and laughter which represents our relationship so very well.

We knew we wanted to get married in a church and were thrilled to find a place where the church, venue and accommodations are in one place.When we picked our venue, I knew we needed a subtle color palette and after a little debate I choose gold and white with a bit of green and blush mixed in. I’m so happy that I took a chance on white bridesmaids dresses because the girls looked like angels walking down the aisle. The boys looked incredibly dapper and classic in a tux sans vest with suspenders. My dress was chosen on the second try and I loved that Hayley Paige is a young female designer who truly understands what so many brides want to be on their big day.

We definitely were attracted to young wedding vendors and can’t say enough positive things about them. By the end of the day it felt like we had new friends celebrating with us. It was a dance party like none other. I am a believer in tiny details that have lots of meaning. For that reason I incorporated little things that meant a lot to my husband and I. I carried a broach on my bouquet that my grandpa gave to my grandma. I wore borrowed diamond studs from my other grandmother. We drank out of borrowed crystal champagne flutes. I gave my dad geese cuff-links as he has lovingly nicknamed me Goose since I was a little girl. We included wedding day photos from our family as a part of the decor. I had our florist write the bridesmaid’s names on the ribbons that tied their bouquets and the lyrics to our wedding song on mine. It all meant something on such a meaningful day.

Whimsical Retro Inspired Wedding

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Vanessa Velez

A retro inspired photoshoot with a color palette of blues and reds is just what the doc ordered for today, so we’re thrilled to share this beauty from Vanessa Velez, Soco Alicea, Rodri Studio. Loosely inspired by The Notebook, this shoot explores the imagined wedding between Allie and Noah with a lovely ceremony vignette and vintage inspired details aplenty.

whimsical retro inspired wedding - photo by Vanessa Velez Photography http://ruffledblog.com/whimsical-retro-inspired-wedding

From the photographer, Vanessa Velez: As an avid reader and total romance addict Soco Alicea planned this wonderful shoot inspired by the epic Notebook novel. While I had seen many shoots done with this idea, we had yet to find one that actually got inspired to create their what if wedding. So we decided we wanted to take it upon ourselves to actually create the magical wedding that would have been in the Notebook if the main characters had gotten to the altar on screen.

When our designer Rodri came on board he simply created magic and with the inspiration of the bicycles and the color scheme we came up with he created a creative and fun ceremony setup. We wanted to really incorporate the idea of the vintage feel and the water so we really worked with having a lot of details and colorful set ups that had the story embedded in each vignette. It was all about creating stories inside the story we where conveying on the shoot.

Sweet Ranch Wedding in Las Vegas

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Cara Robbins Studio

From time to time I fall deeply in love with a wedding, and that’s what happened when I laid my eyes on this one from Cara Robbins Studio and Destinations by Design. Zoe and James’ wedding was thoughtful, deliberate, and fearless in its approach to forgoing traditional expectations in favor of what would make them happiest and most comfortable.

sweet ranch wedding in Las Vegas - photo by Cara Robbins Studio http://ruffledblog.com/sweet-ranch-wedding-in-las-vegas

From the bride, Zoe: I knew from very early stages of planning that I wanted our wedding to be a celebration of love that honored the two of us and paid homage to my husband and I as individuals and reflected our sensibilities. We really wanted to lose every extraneous detail and focus on a minimal but extraordinarily beautiful event that would deliver our vision with precision. This meant that from the get-go we knew we wanted to skip some of the more traditional components of the classic wedding format that we felt were either antiquated, or didn’t feel substantive enough to be included in our ceremony.

white rose and peony bouquet - photo by Cara Robbins Studio http://ruffledblog.com/sweet-ranch-wedding-in-las-vegas
Flower recipe: I carried an all-white bouquet of white roses, white peonies, white hydrangeas, ranunculus, and baby’s breath. The bridesmaids carried blue hydrangeas, white peonies, blue thistle, baby’s breath, and blue anemones. All the men wore thistle as their boutonnieres including my dog who was the ring bearer, and my nephews who were flower boys.

I wanted to create an environment that was timeless, non-traditional, romantic, beautiful, and earthy, but that didn’t necessarily fit into a specific category, ie. rustic. I wanted a bohemian feel for our ceremony, with touches of whimsy and a feeling of earnest romance in every detail. The whole event took place outdoors so I wanted everything to blend into the desert landscape where the ceremony took place. Our Chupah was draped with heavy blue cloth and then adorned with blue and cream flowers and moss. We had a beautiful Turkish rug on the podium that we borrowed from my husband’s aunt, and I wore a braided halo with wildflowers in the back that attached to a floor-length veil. We had a make-your-own-mac+cheese bar and a taco bar for dinner. We wanted our wedding to be our ultimate party and we said f*** everybody else’s idea of what a wedding should look like! Best move ever on our part.

Our color scheme was dusty blue with accents of muted red. Each name tag and place setting was attached to a little air succulent which paid homage to the desert-ranch we got married at. There were little pieces of lavender tucked into each person’s place setting. Words to describe the look of our wedding would be romantic, bohemian, non-traditional, Jewish, timeless, down-to-earth, and minimalist.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Let go of any allegiance to tradition for the sake of tradition if it doesn’t serve a purpose in the greater scheme of your vision. My husband and I kind of fought to shake some of the traditions that we found antiquated and gendered. We chose not to be announced and not to do the Hora (very controversial!). I didn’t throw a bouquet and both my parents walked me down the aisle. I hated the idea of being “given away” as it seemed so anti-feminist to me. Because we only did things we wanted to do our celebration was amazing! It was all about the ceremony and then amazing food and dancing. We kept the formalities to a minimum and I think it was appreciated all around.

From the photographer, Cara Robbins: A little back story on Zoe and James, I actually photographed their siblings’ wedding a couple years back (believe it or not her brother is married to his sister!). Zoe and Moria (James’ sister) met at summer camp years ago and sort of decided that they were going to marry each others brothers, and some how that actually happened!! You’ll have to get the full story from Zoe but can you believe that? Together the boys own Ventura Sprits, a small distillery in Venutra, CA and Zoe is a doula/birthing coach. Together they live in downtown LA in a beautiful loft where we actually did their engagement photos. They got married out at James’ aunt’s ranch just on the outskirts of Las Vegas. When they first approached me about this I wasn’t so sure about a Las Vegas wedding but boy was I wrong! This ranch was absolutely amazing and made for a perfect and very personal backdrop for their wedding (there was even a mini horse!). The property itself has so many great details and they just wanted to bring a really fresh and simple vibe to the decor. One of my favorite parts was that dinner was served on farmhouse tabled that were positioned between a mini orchard of fruit trees (just wait til you see this)! They had beautiful table decor and little gifts for each guest – air plants – as escort cards. Cocktail hour was hosted right next to this amazing oasis pool and guests got to drink cocktails made with the alcohol that James and Henry make! The wedding party was large and mixed, they really didn’t want to make it only brides maids and groomsmen so there were boys and girls on both of their sides and the girls got to wear mixed dresses that were stunning against the desert background. Zoe’s amazing ring was actually James’ mothers and the two of them are all about family (check out the super cute flower boys and their adorable flower crowns). Also at the end of the night James surprised Zoe by covering Can’t Feel My Face by the weekend and serenading her!

Stylish and Light Fall Wedding

Modern Weddings

While we love our dark and moody color palettes for autumn, we absolutely adore that this couple took a brighter and airy approach to their fall wedding. Cheery reds, light pinks, and crisp whites all come together for Abby and Tommy’s beautiful day, which was pulled off with the help of wonderful vendors including Sara & Rocky Photography, A Vintage Affair Events & Rentals, and Park Floral Design.

From the event designers, A Vintage Affair Events & Rentals: This delightful and gorgeous wedding featured a bright and bold color palette using a colorful red, blush, gold, and ivory as the main colors. The colors were able to pop out against the blank canvas that is Blanc while seamlessly harmonizing with the greenery around the venue to create an organic yet vibrant feel. The couple decided they wanted to carry over their initials from their invitations to the wedding itself. In order to do this they enlisted the help of Lighting and Design by Scott to create marquee lights of their initials and an ampersand. The marquee lights created a unique and modern backdrop to their ceremony, as the couple stood in front of the lights for their special moment.

On their way down the aisle the handsome and might we say adorable ring bearers carried “hip hip” and “hooray” flags. Though only a small detail, the bride loved this idea so much she chose to have the flags recreated as mini drink stirrers so guests could enjoy them with their beverages. Abby and Tommy’s ceremony was incredibly heartwarming as both of their dads officiated it. Tommy’s dad began so that Abby’s dad could walk his daughter down the aisle and then take a minute to soak it all in before concluding the ceremony. It was so personal and so lovely, everyone was smiling from ear to ear the entire time. Showing off their bright and fun personalities, when the ceremony finished, instead of turning around and walking down the aisle, they made their way back in style… by dancing down the aisle.

To carry on the theme of the ampersand, Tommy and Abby used handmade ampersand magnets to hold guests’ watercolor place cards. These magnets then doubled as the couple’s favors. The reception room was filled with beautiful wood tables which were adorned with lovely wild, loose, textural arrangements to keep the feeling more organic. There was also seasonal fruit to complete the look which tied in the overall farm to table ambiance the couple wished to design. Seasonal blooms like dahlias were brought in to correspond with the beginning of the fall season! The florist also used Vining greens in order to “connect” the tables and make the room feel more integrated and natural. For dessert guests enjoyed a s’mores flavored cake made by the bride’s friend. They also had ice cream sandwiches served on an adorable pink bike.

Vintage Wedding at Gramercy Park Hotel

Vintage Weddings

All you vintage-loving brides out there, listen up. This wedding (from the incomparable team of Lev Kuperman and Violet and Verde) is where it’s at. Gramercy Park Hotel in New York City was the absolute perfect venue to complement the couple’s vision, and these high school sweethearts ended up with a wedding for the ages!

From the florist, Bridget of Violet and Verde: Melanie was an absolute dream to work with. She was, by far, the most upbeat, sweet, and happy bride and with Mitchell, having been a couple since high school, they were just perfect together and complemented each other so well. They had a clear vision from our first meeting of what they wanted for florals – shades of pinks, reds, and whites without looking too holiday and using a more vintage aesthetic to complement the beautiful venue.

We chose anemones, peonies, ranunculus, roses, paper whites, cosmos and sweet peas to fill the bouquets and tables. Brass lanterns, mercury glass vases, and vintage votives and bottles lined the tables with more flowers placed throughout the tables. Each place setting was adorned with a single colorful bloom for guests. Lush vines and foliage paired with assorted lanterns created a romantic backdrop to their rooftop ceremony. It was truly a beautiful day for such a wonderful couple!

Relaxed Brunch Wedding in Florida

Garden Weddings

Photos by:

The Ganeys

Nothing beats the combination of my two favorite things, brunch and weddings. Sara and Jon’s wedding was full of unbeatable sunlight, lots of good eats, and plenty of smiling faces — just as it should be. An incredible team of vendors pulled this day together, including The Ganeys, Oh So Classy Events, Andrea Layne Floral Design, and Ever After Vintage Weddings!

From the photographer, The Ganeys: Sara and Jon’s love is one for the record books. These two are bright, playful, and filled with joy. They are best friends – and it is so clear that they are about to embark on a journey filled with love. Sara and Jon’s wedding took place at Lakeside Ranch in Inverness, Florida. The day started off foggy, but it burned off as the day continued. Sara and Jon wanted their wedding to really be about them. Neither of them felt compelled to dance the night away – so they opted for a brunch wedding (just throwing it out there – I’m a huge fan!). They shared the sweetest first look. Jon had the biggest smile on his face and gave Sara a huge hug.

Sara’s bouquet was beautiful! Created by Andrea Layne Floral Design – it was a piece of art. One of the ribbons wrapped around the bouquet was from Sara’s grandmother’s wedding dress – do you see the buttons? Their ceremony took place at 11:00. Designed by Ever After Vintage Weddings, wooden stumps with candles, lanterns, colored glass, and flowers lined the aisle. A macramé curtain was the backdrop for the ceremony. The wedding party made their way down the aisle, Sara’s brother walked Buddy, their dog. Sara made her entrance on a green vintage truck. Her dad proudly accompanied her down the aisle, carrying her late-mother’s Bible.

Their ceremony was short and sweet. At the end of the wedding, the officiant told Jon he could kiss his bride – everyone cheered. Then, the officiant announced, “Sara, you may not kiss your groom!” and the group cheered again. It was too sweet. Brunch drinks were enjoyed during cocktail hour and the guests made their way to the barn as Bay Kings Band serenaded the group. Guests found their seat (and their party animal) at farm tables covered in lanterns and colored bottles – brimming with flowers. The wedding ended with a beautiful bubble send off as we all wished the newlyweds well.

Modern Day Juliet Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Autumn is only two days away, and we think there’s no better time to share this inspiration shoot with its pops of marsala than right now! Marsala has been quite the hit this year since it was announced as Pantone’s color of 2015, and we think it’s going to experience its best success in gorgeous wedding landscapes for fall — in fact, this shoot from Jennifer Sosa Photography, Pursue Love Design Co., and Milieu Florals proves it!

modern day Juliet wedding inspiration - photo by Jennifer Sosa Photography http://ruffledblog.com/modern-day-juliet-wedding-inspiration

From the event designer, Caroline of Pursue Love Design Co.: Inspired by the beauty of imperfect vintage rusted iron rod doors, chippy paint and patina, we created vignettes of a modern day Juliet in an intimate setting of a gated vintage secret garden. In creating the color palette for this shoot, the colors are romantic, moody and dramatic, bringing attention to the graceful presence of our modern day Juliet and her quiet meditation prior to her wedding day. When designing this shoot, I found inspiration from the colors of aging, imperfect, chipping vintage pieces and metals and mixed them with eclectic textures and a color palette of marsala with pops of color.

The beauty and essence of this shoot was captured beautifully by the talented Jennifer Sosa Photography, who truly created vignettes of drama and romance with movement and light. Hannah Koo of Milieu Florals crafted uniquely curated floral pieces to bring our vintage secret garden altar and tablescape to life. Calligraphy pieces were gorgeously handwritten in elegant fonts in marsala by Alley & Co. Lastly, our modern day Juliet was dressed in dreamy, ethereal bridal dresses by Saja Wedding, adorned with gorgeous headpieces by Untamed Petals and beautifully styled in 2 dramatic and stunning hair and makeup looks by the ladies of E2beauty.
