Berry Toned Wedding at Terrain

Blue Label, Romantic Weddings

Well it just doesn’t get any cozier than this next wedding from Sweet Root Village and Strawberry Milk Events. The incredible day was pulled together in under 2 months (can you believe it?) and was an intimate celebration at one of our favorite event venues, Terrain at Styers. Let’s take a look!

From the photographers, Sweet Root Village: Kayanne and David got hitched at the courthouse back in September, but still desired a more formal (yet intimate) celebration with family and close friends. It just so happens that Kayanne’s new sister-in-law is Julie Savage-Parekh of Strawberry Milk Events. She helped Kayanne whip up a cozy, Christmastime celebration in under 2 months for around 40 guests at the charming Terrain at Styer’s (Anthropologie’s nursery and cool event space outside of Philly.)

Being 2 hours outside of D + K’s hometown of Annapolis, MD it made for a fun, mini destination wedding location. Julie, David and their family visit Terrain every year at Christmastime for brunch and shopping because it’s simply magical. Kayanne had never been – and her first visit was the day of their wedding where she too, fell under it’s enchantment. They had their first look among the Christmas tree farm while guests arrived and enjoyed a mini cocktail hour complete with gourmet hot chocolate bar and a cheese and charcuterie display. Guests then entered the greenhouse for a candlelit, religious ceremony where the bride and groom exchanged their own vows.

After the ceremony, the curtain was pulled back to reveal a magical dining room with one dramatic, long kings table that held hundreds of candles and crystal candelabras. A seasonal garland of greenery also ran down the length of the table. The farm to table multi-course meal was fantastic (we’re talking butternut squash bisque, braised beef short ribs and individual apple pies a la mode in cast iron skillets), and there were several heartfelt speeches and toasts. Although the celebration was more of a dinner party, the bride and groom still shared a first dance to Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.” The sweetest surprise actually came after cake cutting, when Kayanne’s maid of honor showed a touching video of special messages recorded by Kayanne’s family back home in Brazil who were unable to make the trip. The bride did her hair and makeup herself and had two something borrowed’s – Julie’s Vera Wang veil and antique diamond shoe clips. The bride DIY’d the polaroid guest book table, signage, gold glitter pine cone ornament favors and place cards.

Eclectic Appleford Estate Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Eclectic was the word of the day for this styled shoot from Jessica Cooper Photography and Falls Flowers. Mismatched chairs, vintage oil lamps, and a mix of fun napkins were all key elements here, playing beautifully against the couple’s modern romantic look. Just wait until you see all of the yummy dessert ideas!

eclectic Appleford Estate wedding inspiration - photo by Jessica Cooper Photography http://ruffledblog.com/eclectic-appleford-estate-wedding-inspiration

From the event designer, Forget-Me-Not Vintage Rentals: The gorgeous grounds of Appleford Estate in Villanova, PA initially inspired this beautifully eclectic shoot. Even with the lush greenery and bright blooms fallen for the season, florist Alyssa Rainville of Falls Flowers foraged for local berries and stems that added their own rustic charm to all of her designs. The gorgeous bouquet was a blend of these locally harvested items and fresh flowers, creating the perfect woodsy, winter mix. Forget Me Not brought their keen sense of style to the tablescape and ceremony space, playing on the rustic feel of the venue by using their handmade farm table, mismatched chairs, and vintage oil lamps. For a fresh, modern twist, they brought in an eclectic collection of fun napkins, accent pillows and other textiles. Pippa & Fig brought the natural rustic element even more to life with a leather detailed escort display – each guest’s name hand painted on a banner-style leather tag. The invitation suite was a fresh of modern tribal prints and Kraft paper, perfectly complementing our theme. Highlighting the bar top of 13th Street Cocktails, was a reclaimed wood serving tray from Infinite Abyss Handmade. The inlaid tribal design is another perfect nod to the organic modern elements of this shoot. Queen Bee Pastry created a collection of white, textured cakes, giving Falls Flowers another chance to show off their foraged winter finds. Adorable mini Mason jar pies completed Queen Bee’s assortment of desserts, and added the perfect rustic touch.

This bride’s gorgeous auburn tresses were perfectly tousled by Belles and Grooms, giving her a carefree, romantic look. The makeup, by Occasions by Diana, gave her a clean, natural look. Focusing on her glowing, fair skin tone, Diana accented her brows and cheeks staying away from any harsh lines or bold lips. She kept the brides eyes romantic and soft using shadows and a pencil liner. Sweet Caroline designed her custom made separates – choosing a sheer, long sleeve top with lace appliqué, allowing her to have a gorgeous semi-open back, while still remaining modest for the cold weather. A soft tulle skirt, accented with a leather wrap belt, tied this look in perfectly with the overall theme. The bride’s incredible emerald ring from Harry Merrill and Son Jewelers stole the show as the perfect choice for an alternative engagement ring. Harry Merrill’s simple diamond earrings and hand engraved wedding bands added a touch of sophistication. Bel Aire Bridal provided the perfect, woodsy-inspired headpieces and a gorgeous cathedral veil added an air of romance and whimsy. For the groom, we chose a less formal, light gray suit from Generation Tux, accessorized with a black bow tie, skinny black suspenders and a brown oxford shoe.

Pale Pink and Icy Blue Floral Arrangement

Flower Guide

Photos by:

Sweet Root Village

While spring might be the season that makes you think of flowers the most, winter is rich with its own selection of beautiful blooms and Sweet Root Village is here to help prove that point. The photography + floral design powerhouse put together a beautiful arrangement of flowers incorporating soft blue and sweet pink, perfect for Pantone’s colors of 2016! Let’s take a look:

Ruffled - photo by Sweet Root Village http://ruffledblog.com/pale-pink-and-icy-blue-floral-arrangement

From Sweet Root Village: This glamorous, wintery centerpiece is packed with lush ivory and pale pink blooms and completed with touches of icy blue textures. A perfect way to mix the 2016 Pantone colors of the year! The bulk of this arrangement is made up of blooms that can be found all year long, such as hydrangea, standard roses, and spray roses. These blooms can be found in such a huge variety of colors and translate well into nearly any sort of theme or style depending on how they are used!

pale pink and icy blue floral arrangement - photo by Sweet Root Village http://ruffledblog.com/pale-pink-and-icy-blue-floral-arrangement

Some of the more delicate blooms like Scabiosa and Ranunculus can be sourced most of the year, but they do have several off months that fluctuate depending on the weather. Evergreens and Firs can be foraged all year long, but are most used during the winter months of course due to the wintery feeling they add to arrangements and wreaths. Privet berry is another wintery element that is well loved for its deep blue colored berries! It’s usually available over the summer, but its berries are green! They slowly darken to the deep blue color we all love the closer they get to winter and typically finish their season by December. During the Spring months, the always lovely Viburnum is a great alternative! Eucalyptus silver bell pods are typically only found over the holidays! Get them in December and January before they bloom out and are hard to find.

Paperwhites are an extremely fragrant bulb flower that are usually found during the Winter months of November through March. The teeny, delicate blooms clustered in an arrangement add such a beautiful and unexpected texture! They are not expensive blooms, but they do quickly add up in an arrangement due to needing so many of the tiny stems to make any sort of impact.

paperwhites - photo by Sweet Root Village http://ruffledblog.com/pale-pink-and-icy-blue-floral-arrangement

This centerpiece could translate to a Spring arrangement by adjusting to add some stunning sweat pea on the vine and popping in a few fluffy peonies. Or to a Summer, rustic wedding by switching out the wintery textures for queen anne’s lace and seeded eucalyptus. Extra deep toned burgundy Dahlias and snapdragons with some dried hydrangeas would take this arrangement towards gorgeous Autumn route.

Seamstress Inspired Elopement

Wedding Design

Out of all the things we love about today’s styled shoot from Michelle Lea Photographie, Annie’s Room, and Rainbow’s End Floral, what we love the most has to be that it’s inspired by the photographer’s own grandmothers. Appropriately, the shoot brings in antique and vintage elements and gives them new life while simultaneously providing beautiful inspiration for couples planning their own events now!

seamstress inspired elopement - photo by Michelle Lea Photography http://ruffledblog.com/seamstress-inspired-elopement

From the photographer, Michelle Lea Photographie: This styled elopement was inspired by my two grandmothers. They both loved to sew and have tea parties. This styled shoot took place at The Millstone wedding venue located in Limestone, TN. This rustic venue was built in 1811. The mill served as a working mill until it was closed in 1994. In 2010 the mill was completely renovated to a beautiful unique venue. Every piece that was original to the mill is still there repurposed to beautiful works of art.

Mountain Vineyard Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

You might have caught on to this by now, but any time I see a sequined wedding gown, my heart skips a beat or two. This styled shoot from Rebecca Masters Photography, Allure with Decor, and Beyond the Garden Gate uses not one but two sparkly frocks, and pairs them with lush floral design and pomegranate accents for a look that’s more than perfect for chillier seasons.

From the photographer, Rebecca Masters Photography: Nestled in the beautiful Applegate Valley, Red Lily Vineyard’s “Stargazer Knoll” was the perfect location for our rustic yet elegant, autumn wedding shoot. With an abundance of towering oak trees, and the breathtaking Siskiyou mountains surrounding, what better to depict the little-known gem which is the Southern Oregon wine country.

The sequin Badgley Mischka gown, which we rented from Rent the Runway, is a stunner no doubt but when paired with an airy tulle skirt from BHLDN, you have a dazzling and unique bridal look that will surely leave an impression.

Enchanted Styled Wedding at Maravilla Gardens

Wedding Design

We hope you’re ready for a dose of glamour, because today’s shoot is pulling no punches. Gloria Mesa Photography, Christina Lauren, and Ilana Ashley Events all collaborated on this stylish wedding session at Maravilla Gardens, where fuchsia and purple come together in a beautiful symphony and there’s no shortage of mouth-watering desserts to choose from.

enchanted styled wedding at Maravilla Gardens - photo by Gloria Mesa Photography http://ruffledblog.com/organic-and-intimate-wedding-in-arizona

From the event designer, Christina Lauren: Tumbling roses, everblooming flowers, and lush greenery overwhelm the second you step into Maravilla Gardens. The original plan for this styled wedding was very natural: wild flowers, fresh California produce, exposed wood, and a splash of glamour. The creative process evolved into something much more romantic, and a bit rebellious. We chose three main stages to show event trends: bridal party table, cozy sitting lounge, and towering displays of dessert.

Peppered with flickering tea lights and bowls of California grown berries, a lacy-sequined blush runner slithered down the 9′ ebony table set for 12. Name card flags were placed in plums, a ridiculously charming, easy, DIY project. We chose to monogram linen napkins with guest’s initials. In lieu of cutesy favors, guests would take something home both practical and personal. We also weren’t afraid to mix metals: copper chargers, brass candlesticks, and gold flatware. The living room inspired sitting lounge, perched over California mountains, was set for those who prefer intimate conversations over the dance floor. Marsala taper candles provided the perfect ambient light, the kind that makes everyone look flawless. Lots of pillows and throws added a cozy element, while their colors reinforced the overall look of the wedding.

Dessert tables, rich with color and decadence, were draped with leafy greens, and roses plucked from Maravilla Gardens. The naked cake adorned with natural produce, seduced with its 9 stacking layers. The dessert bar, three levels high, boasted organic berries and citrus from local farm stands.
Bold and interesting details danced throughout the shoot. Overflowing arrangements dripping in Amaranthus boasted Coxcomb, hydrangea, and deep purple callas. The florals were partnered with veggies like artichoke and eggplant adding a level of abundance and masculinity. The bride’s bouquet was something more wild and simplified – a nod to her casual cool attitude. She wore a traditional lace two-piece gown puddling just enough to conceal her magenta Manolos. Her beau in a traditional tux, “I feel like Bruce Wayne” he boasted posing next to the 1958 Silver Cloud Rolls Royce. That was a moment of ‘aha’ for the team, because shouldn’t everyone feel like Batman on their ‘styled’ wedding?!

Fall Wedding Inspiration with Berries

Wedding Design

There’s no season like fall for deep, rich colors, and today’s shoot from Brittany Michelle Photographer and City Blossoms Event Design has them in spades. The team also added in plenty of fresh fruit — pomegranates, pears, and berries — for a freshly-plucked feel. Of course, we have to mention the cake from Peridot Sweets, which is just about the most perfect autumn wedding cake imaginable.

fall wedding inspiration with berries - photo by Brittany Michelle Photography http://ruffledblog.com/fall-wedding-inspiration-with-berries

From the photographer, Brittany Michelle: This wedding inspiration shoot is the collaboration of some of the most talented vendors in the Las Vegas area. Located at the Wetlands Nature Preserve, the background was truly serene and whimsical. The gorgeous floral arrangements set the tone for true romance in the Fall – with burgundies, shades of orange and yellow – pomegranates and pears – gorgeous garden roses and dahlias… Pops of gold and lace in the details add richness and whimsy – and complement the bride’s amazing gown perfectly.

We really loved how all of the gorgeous vintage tableware/china added to the romantic feel of the main table. And the floral “chandelier” was one of the highlights of the shoot. In fact, all of the amazing floral arrangements are really what took this shoot to the next level. We also really loved how the beautifully simple cake was elevated by adding fresh fruit and floral accents.

All of these gorgeous details are made even better with our amazing couple – so sweet and in love. Jess & Mike have the best chemistry and authentic adoration for each other. We spent our time laughing and dancing and basking in the beautiful evening light. This shoot was a dream to be a part of and was the perfect way to usher in a season of Fall weddings!

Industrial Romantic Fall Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

With its dramatic dark tones and pops of shimmering gold, this styled shoot from Christina Block Photography and Ruby Reds Floral is a perfect reminder of why we love autumn so much. There are not one but two stunning gowns from Inbal Dror used here — one strapless and one longsleeve lace — and a delicious array of bundt cakes and desserts for you to feast your eyes on.

From the photographer, Christina Block: This styled shoot was planned to have every detail & element to flawlessly fit with one another. I worked one on one with Inbal Dror & used 2 of their couture bridal gowns, which are mind blowing as is. All the vendors I got together are some of the best in the industry… from the place settings, to the floral… baked goods, location and so forth, everything was beautiful & I think you will agree. Some of the vendors we used were Inbal Dror [as I mentioned prior], Wish Vintage Rentals, Trumpet & Horn, The Mrs Box, Silk and Willow, Graceline and so many more. The shoot also takes place in the old Barnett Building which is a historical building in Downtown Jacksonville… a perfect back drop for the shoot. Styling is my second love & I was very pleased how this shoot came together.

Garden Weddings

Photos by:

Pat Furey

Be still our wedding-loving hearts. This Pennsylvania wedding between Melissa and Sam has some of our absolute favorite vendors on board, including Pat Furey, Laurel and Elm, and Kate Farley, just to name a few! It might just be the perfect wedding for fall, mixing a color palette of blush pink and burgundy to perfection and even incorporating berry boutonnieres for the gents.

From the bride, Melissa: I envisioned our wedding style being natural elegance with pops of whimsy. We wanted our day to be gorgeous, insanely fun and memorable for our guests without being too formal. Great food and drinks, tons of dancing with beautiful details for a memorable backdrop for our big day. The color story was blush, burgundy and amber with pops of metallic copper and gold wherever I could possibly incorporate them :)

Since I’m a designer specializing in hand lettering there were a TON of DIY projects: I designed my own engagement ring, Save the Dates, wedding invitations (with hand-painted watercolor floral envelope liners), wedding website, programs, hand stamped muslin welcome bags with itinerary and door hanger, hand calligraphed seating chart, dip-dyed calligraphed placecards, wine bottles with labels that doubled as the table number and guestbook for each table (we’re planning on opening them on each corresponding anniversary), signage, and for the place cards I dip-dyed them different colors based on our guests’ meal choices —- burgundy was prime rib, brown for duck, and green for the vegetarian option (pasta). My mom, sister and I also constructed all the terrariums we used for centerpieces and the garland that was hung on the fireplace and bar at the reception.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Enjoy every minute of your big day and know the details you want to pay attention to – there’s so much going on that day it’s easy to miss things if you’re not looking for them. Don’t forget to eat! Take dance lessons! We surprised all our family and friends by learning to waltz and having some simple choreography for our first dance – everyone went crazy and loved it!! Spring for videography – being able to watch moments from your big day years later will be priceless.

Ferns and Fruit Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Rebecca Hollis

Today’s styled shoot from Rebecca Hollis and Beargrass Gardens ignites the inner nature lover in me, and it’s sure to do the same for you as well! This creative team used a bounty of ferns and fruits to create a fresh take on the woodland wedding, topping everything off with a berry wedding cake that looks almost too good to eat.

ferns and fruit wedding inspiration - photo by Rebecca Hollis Photography http://ruffledblog.com/ferns-and-fruit-wedding-inspiration

From the event designer and florist, Darci of Beargrass Gardens: This inspiration shoot was inspired by the lush ferns that grow abundantly wild in the Montana forests and the fruit trees that grow along Flathead Lake’s shores. Rich and royal colors can be so enchanting and generally stir emotion. Adding fruit and berries will also heighten the senses and therefore, draw your guests in for a memorable and delightful event.

Salt Lake City Hardware Company Wedding

Romantic Weddings

I never tire of seeing grooms with great style, and with his checkered blue shirt and on-trend undercut ‘do, he definitely fits the bill. Green Apple Photography and Flower Afternoon + Decor captured Taylor and Hayden’s vision perfectly, utilizing an industrial reception space and bringing in lush floral design complete with one of our favorite accents, berries!

Salt Lake City hardware company wedding - photo by Green Apple Photography http://ruffledblog.com/salt-lake-city-hardware-company-wedding

From the photographer, Lindsey of Green Apple Photography: The ceremony was at the Logan, Utah LDS Temple, and the reception was in an old hardware building, turned offices, in Salt Lake City. I loved Hayden’s blue checked shirt and blue suit, and Taylor’s beautiful flowers with berries. Val from Flower Afternoon did all the decor and flowers, and brought in summer berries in all the floral arrangements. It was a sweet wedding, with lots of simple details (honey pots for all the guests!)

Relaxed Destination Wedding in Tulum

Beach Weddings

Cassie and Sean wanted more than just one day to celebrate their wedding with family and friends, so a destination wedding was the perfect answer. Everyone headed to Tulum, Mexico for an absolutely dreamy event with tropical air and lush surroundings, made even better by the talents of Cynthia Rose Photography and Tulum Weddings and Events.

relaxed destination wedding in Tulum - photo by Cynthia Rose Photography http://ruffledblog.com/relaxed-destination-wedding-in-tulum

From the bride, Cassie: We knew we wanted our wedding to be laid back, intimate and jam packed with laughter. We also knew we wanted to spend a few quality days (not just one!) with our closest friends and family and have an awesome party to cap it off. Sean and I are beach people (he proposed on the beach at my parents beach house in North Carolina) and oh do we ever love Mexico! It is so close yet, far enough away where we can throw our real world cares to the wind and really melt into two puddles of pure bliss… obviously that’s the place you want to get married! And Tulum… oh, Tulum… pure magic… a jungle beach paradise. It’s rustic, charming and it’s our favorite spot to escape to for a long weekend.

In terms of style, I was going for a laid back, art deco, vintage, beach-glam vibe (if that even makes any sense at all!). I actually just kind of meshed some of my favorite eras together but, everything turned out beyond perfect! The juxtaposition between the rustic, laid back, beach palapas and the glammed up, glitzy details was just beyond!

We wanted to fill the day with tons of little personal touches, which was not easy to do when you’re doing a destination. We ended up bringing several suitcases full of items down to Mexico because we wanted to have these personal touches, which meant I had to be super organized! For our guest book, we had friends sign vintage postcards (I brought a ton of vintage postcards from places that were special to Sean and I) with well wishes or advice. We had our guests find their seats for dinner with gold compact compasses which we brought down, along with signage that said “May love be your compass, may it guide you home….But, first find your seat.” We loved that because home is no longer a place it’s now a person. We also had maracas handmade with our name and the date for guests to shake during the ceremony when we kissed. It was all really cute and in the end defiantly worth all the stress!

relaxed destination wedding in Tulum - photo by Cynthia Rose Photography http://ruffledblog.com/relaxed-destination-wedding-in-tulum

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? My advice for couples thinking about planning destination weddings is… just do it! Destination weddings are the best because everyone really gets to know each other and by the wedding it’s like one big happy family. Try to make it as EASY as possible for all guests… that could mean arranging accommodations for guests, having transportation set up and other events, dinners and things for them to do. The biggest piece of advice is to find someone there who you trust and who can help you. We got really close with Sandy and Morgan and they were rockstars in dealing with logistics. We couldn’t have done it from afar without them. Also, I’m a bit of a control freak and I had to learn how to just let some things be! There were things that I didn’t know how they were going to work or turn out and I had to just trust Morgan and Sandy and roll with it. Distance also makes you super decisive. Make a decisions and move one! Life is in the slow lane in Mexican beach towns (which is why we picked Tulum in the first place) so, in the end it was perfect because all I could do was drink a margarita, enjoy our guests and let the wind carry away my worries.

Elegant Organic Mother Nature Inspired Shoot

Wedding Design

We adore the concept behind today’s styled shoot — what would Mother Nature’s wedding look like? The answer, according to Lauren Gabrielle Photography, Shi Shi Events, and HeatherLily, is lush floral arrangements made up of peonies, garden roses, and berries, and a flowy wedding gown that Aphrodite herself would envy.

elegant organic mother nature inspired shoot - photo by Lauren Gabrielle Photography http://ruffledblog.com/elegant-organic-mother-nature-inspired-shoot

From the event designer, Gina of Shi Shi Events: In Cleveland, we definitely experience the full range of the four seasons. After a particularly long, cold winter this year I was very much inspired by this spring and that beautiful sense of the world waking up and blossoming again. This feeling lead me to think about what it would mean if Mother Nature were a bride and I created an inspirational shoot around it. I wanted the shoot to feel like all of the things I believe Mother Nature to be: bohemian, a bit glamorous, nurturing but powerful and ultimately beautiful.

I also felt it was important to have some baby animals included in the shoot as what’s more spring or more Mother Nature right? For the tablescape we developed a mix of floral pieces in gold vessels surrounded by antlers and set those pieces against vintage china and glassware and chic gold flatware. To add power and punch, our bride and groom’s chairs were draped in smilax and adorned with large horns which acted as place cards for our new “Mr” and “Mrs.” With the setting of a stunner of an apple orchard below us on a hillside I feel like we really captured the essence of Mother Nature at her very best.

Countryside Wedding with Cobalt Blue and Crimson

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Sposto Photography

There’s no reason to shy away from bold colors on your wedding day, and this styled shoot from Sposto Photography, Little Hill Floral Designs, and Touched by Time Vintage Rentals shows us exactly why. Cobalt blue and deep crimson are the stars here, with the bride wearing a traditional white gown followed by a gem-toned blue dress (perfect for the reception, we say). Let’s jump in!

countryside wedding with cobalt blue and crimson - photo by Sposto Photography http://ruffledblog.com/countryside-wedding-with-cobalt-blue-and-crimson

From the photographer, Shauntelle of Sposto Photography: Cobalt blue and crimson red are at the heart of this countryside chic wedding inspiration photo shoot. The nostalgia of summer nights gone by is invoked with old-time movie theatre seating amidst the golden fields of this Temecula pomegranate farm. At the same time, there’s a delicate yet elegant balance between the lush colors of the hydrangeas, unripened black berries, star-of-bethlehem, and protea and the timeless beauty of the white and gold tablescape lined with white tapered candles, brass goblets and pepper tree garland. And all these, beneath a crystal chandelier.

Romantic Baroque Wedding Editorial

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Elate Photo

It’s official, Elate Photo and Tulip know how to bring the romance. This indoor-outdoor affair fuses bohemian bridal style with a reception setup that’s equal parts vintage and botanical, complete with floral arrangements in antique goblets and an endless supply of fresh peach roses!

romantic baroque wedding editorial - photo by Elate Photo http://ruffledblog.com/romantic-baroque-wedding-editorial

From the photographer, Hannah of Elate Photo: This intimate “wedding day” was inspired deeply by baroque art of the 18th century. An inviting vintage home in the heart of Fallbrook was the perfect location for the shoot. The uses of pastel florals, peach colored ribbon, and a delicate lace gown really helped make our vision a reality. We knew right away that candles in abundance were a must!! We had an amazing collection of ornate candelabras that can be seen on display throughout the home. We wanted to capture romance in every sense of the word, so a gorgeous vintage ring was a must as well. We hope you enjoy these photos as much as we enjoyed bringing them to life!

Leaves of Grass Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass was always a source of inspiration for me, so I’m extra excited to bring you all today’s styled shoot from Jason Hales Photography, Bowman & Clark, and Alabaster & Ivory Events. Inspired by the wordsmith’s book of poetry, it brings together classic beauty and organic garden wedding ideas for a shoot that’s making us fall in love with the written word all over again.

From Allie Webber, Co-Owner of Bowman & Clark: We loved getting to design for this unique mixture of soft, garden inspired florals and more structured 19th century details. The arbor structure was covered in greenery and potted and hanging plants created a garden oasis. Wild arrangements, soft fabrics and pillows helped bring in the boho vibe. While the dark 19th century furniture and candlesticks brought depth and warmth into the space. The bride looked effortless in a gorgeous Winifred Bean gown, with her hair pulled back easily, and her makeup creating a natural glowing complexion. We loved the contrasting details and natural feel of this shoot and hope that it inspires a beautiful garden, boho, or 19th Century design.

Hunter Green and Berry Engagement Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Ben Q Photography

It feels like spring is right around the corner, and it’s shoots like this one from Ben Q Photography and Grit + Gold that make us hope it gets here ASAP. In this styled engagement, the bride-to-be wears a hunter green patterned gown and flowers in her hair, with a simple braided ‘do we can’t wait to copy for ourselves.

hunter green and berry engagement inspiration - photo by Ben Q Photography http://ruffledblog.com/hunter-green-and-berry-engagement-session

From the event designer, Lottie of Grit + Gold: The shoot’s design and details all evolved from the Sachin & Babi Noir dress worn by our soon to be bride. Soft and romantic lace linens used for our tablesetting set a nice background so that our floral would really pop. We pulled in terracotta tones in our dishware and napkins which complement the Texas terrain so nicely. A simple noir setup for all those wine lovers who love to picnic. We kept the bouquet and chair details all natural with various greenery, again letting her dress be our floral and detail focus.

Rich Toned Wedding Ideas in Northern California

Wedding Design

When you’ve got incredible flowers to work with, putting together a styled wedding shoot becomes just a little bit easier. Today’s photo session comes from Britt Taylor Photography and Thistle and Honey, who crafted a gorgeous botanical inspired wedding scene complete with rich berry tones, a lovely + leafy garland backdrop, and an incredible lace gown by Sarah Seven that has us positively green with envy!

Rich Toned Wedding Ideas in Northern California - photo by Britt Taylor Photography http://ruffledblog.com/rich-toned-wedding-ideas-in-northern-california

From the event stylist, Shannon of Thistle and Honey: This shoot came together with a great team of vendors from Northern California. When putting together this shoot I was inspired by the rich abundance of warm colors that surround us during the fall. From the early sunsets showering us with warm, golden light – to the brightly hued trees dropping their leaves. Autumn is a lovely time to be married, but the weather can certainly be unpredictable. I wanted to bring a bit of the outdoors in, while still maintaining elegance and simplicity. Beatnik Studios, which serves as an event space and art gallery, was the perfect place for this to all come together.

A Fun Food Truck Wedding

I’ll admit it; I used to think it would be difficult to make a food truck wedding elegant. Well no more, because this backyard California wedding from Majesta Patterson has completely proven me wrong! Cole and Caitlin’s wedding day was full of good eats, lovely floral design, and bistro string lights. Prepare to be blown away by this endlessly sophisticated wedding:

From the bride, Caitlin: We wanted our wedding to be super laid back and fun for everyone involved; we saw it as a great opportunity to bring family and friends together and have an amazing evening making memories. It was so great to have the people that we love and cherish there to celebrate with us, and we wanted that to be the focus and not get hung up on too many little details. We wanted everyone to feel relaxed, have some great food, dance to some awesome music, and just enjoy spending time with loved ones.

A Sophisticated Food Truck Wedding - photo by Majesta Patterson http://ruffledblog.com/a-sophisticated-food-truck-wedding

My wedding could probably be best described as simple and classic, with vintage elements, and a soft color palette with the occasional pops of color (brought in largely by the flowers used in the bouquets and on the tables). Everything felt light and soft with just the right amount of contrast. There were several DIY projects, including the menus, table numbers, the “ribbon wall,” escort cards and the display they were attached to, bride and groom chair backs, cake topper, ring box, wooden gate with bride and groom’s initials, stands for the vintage windows displayed at the altar and behind the sweetheart table, the game of “life-sized Jenga,” hangers for the bride’s/bridesmaids’ dresses, and several pieces of refinished vintage furniture. The wedding planner along with my mom and dad totally rocked at all of these DIY projects!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? My best advice for couples would be to relax and be adaptable when planning your wedding—especially if you are doing it long distance, which is becoming more and more common these days. If you would have asked me a few years ago how I expected my wedding planning to go, I would’ve said, “I don’t need a wedding planner, I can totally do everything myself.” Little did I know that I would be planning a wedding long distance, and wouldn’t have the freedom to fly back and forth between Omaha and the Bay Area to get my hands dirty in all the little details. I was able come up with a vision for the big day, but needed to leave the execution in my mom’s and my wedding planner’s hands (yes, I did get a wedding planner after all, and she was a huge blessing to us). I learned through the process that it’s okay to trust your vision to other people—no, I didn’t get to do every DIY project myself, and I didn’t get to see everything first hand before the big day, but guess what? I had a beautiful wedding and reception, the planning process wasn’t stressful, and the most important part was that I got to marry my best friend that day—that’s all that ultimately matters for any bride or groom.

From the photographer, Majesta Patterson: Marrying tradition with modern design, Cole and Caitlin held a sweet, rustic wedding at the Rengstorff House in Mountain View. Planning all the way from Nebraska, they carefully chose the perfect details and vendors – from their food truck spread to their gorgeous tablescapes. I love that Caitlin chose to add pops of color in her bouquets while keeping the bridesmaid dresses mismatched and neutral! Cole adorned a classic navy blue suit, my absolute favorite suit color of the season. Let’s just talk about their tablescapes for a second – one of my favorite details from their wedding! Like all good things, the layers to their table created a perfect balance to create a homey and inviting feel to their reception. With custom menu’s nailed to wood blocks and mismatched glass vases to hold their delicate wild flowers. Napkins were wrapped and placed in cute buckets to carry the food truck theme, placed on a natural wood board atop their light blue table runners. And lastly, the overhead bistro lighting created a warm environment for their guests to dine under. It truly was a charming celebration!

Camping Inspired Wedding at Sundance Resort

Elegant Weddings

Goodness gracious ladies and gents, sit tight because we’ve got one heck of an event to share with you today. Stacy and TJ’s wedding at the renowned Sundance Resort in Utah is a brilliant collaboration of vision and talented vendors, including Rebekah Westover, Michelle Leo Events, and Urban Chateau, just to name a handful. Their day is overflowing with captivating ideas, so let’s jump on in!

From the bride, Stacy: Early on we decided that we wanted our wedding to be an intimate celebration with our closest family and friends, spanning several days. We wanted every element to reflect us as a couple, which meant balancing TJ’s love for the outdoors and rustic aesthetics with some glamour in a place that has special meaning to us. A year earlier, TJ and I shared our first camping trip at Mount Timpanogos, and loved the idea of having the mountain serve as the backdrop for the weekend’s festivities. In addition to the wedding, over the course of the weekend we invited guests to partake a number of activities and events that we coordinated including: hikes, a rafting excursion, a BBQ with cornhole and a bluegrass band, and more.

During our nondenominational wedding ceremony, guests were given a small cup which contained wine from a bottle that TJ had purchased in France as a child. A young romantic at heart, while in France on a school trip, TJ managed to use all the cash he had on hand to buy a nice bottle of wine with the intention of sharing it with his future wife on their wedding day. He also promised himself that he would take his future wife there one day. Cheers to that! Hours after our engagement, he surprised me with a trip to Paris that night.

Our wedding was sophisticated and down to earth at once, and truly a reflection of us and our love for each other. We didn’t want to compete with the natural beauty of the mountain setting, so we incorporated minimal teal, gold, and tribal elements with neutral colors throughout. Guests received teal and gold arrows with their names calligraphed on the fletching to escort them to their seats. Bistro lights hung above the dining room and chandeliers were suspended above the dance floor to balance the rustic glam aesthetic. Meanwhile the floral centerpieces provided pops of bright pinks and reds, and taper candles and votives lined the blue farm tables. We wanted guests to be comfortable and have places they could go to sit and talk once the dancing began, so we arranged vintage furniture inside by the dance floor and outside on the deck with fire pits.

Given we were planning the wedding from NYC, we decided to focus on a few specific DIY items in order to personalize the event. Upon checkin, guests were greeted with linen hiking backpacks filled with assorted goods including the homemade gorp that I always make for TJ when we go hiking. The key ingredient is orange chocolate! At the wedding, we served guests coffee that we brought from Irving Farm in NYC, the location of our first date. We also spent a tremendous amount of time writing personalized wedding vows and crafting decor items for the July 4th BBQ rehearsal dinner.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Your wedding is likely to be the only time in your life when all of your loved ones are together in one place at the same time. Take time throughout the course of the festivities to look around and soak up the love surrounding you. I can’t recall half the details of our wedding day, but when I close my eyes I can recall the feeling of pure joy and the chill that overcame me as I looked out to all our friends and family from our chuppah and the dance floor on our wedding day. That memory will forever warm my heart. Also remember to take ample time for yourself and your significant other. On the morning of my wedding day, I woke up at dawn and sat outside with my journal and a cup of coffee for two hours before my mother-in-law led yoga and meditation for the bridal party. It was such a refreshing way to start the day and allowed me to reflect on the significance of the commitment TJ and I were making. We also made it a point to have plenty of private time together throughout the weekend, whether it was taking the scenic detour to get to our rehearsal dinner, going for a walk on the mountain during cocktail hour, or enjoying a private picnic lunch after the group hike. Inevitably the events will fly by, but taking a moment here and there to pause and reflect on the occasion with your partner will help you be more fully present in the moment. These moments ended up being some of my favorites and are the ones I recall most vividly months later.

From the event designer, Michelle Leo Events: Stacy and TJ were a delightful couple to work with. It always helps when my clients are interested in creating something truly unique and personal rather than duplicating something they’ve already seen when it comes to their wedding design. Stacy put her faith in me as her designer and together I feel we were able to create something that was as equally fun as it was elegant. We infused rustic pieces into the beautiful setting of Sundance through wood tables and linen furniture pieces to create comfortable conversation areas for guests. To balance these rustic elements, we used lush blooms in bold colors on top of the light wood tables dressed with cream runners to create drama. A variety of gold candlesticks with tapers also dressed the tables. This lighting combined with the strung bistro lights overhead created a comfortable and romantic atmosphere for guests to dine. One of my favorite elements of this “Tribal Glam” wedding was the combination of tribal elements throughout the paper suite. I loved the patterned used by Peter Loves Jane on Stacy and TJ’s invitation suite which carried over to the table menu and place cards. To accentuate this tribal element, we designed a completely custom gold and ivory target for the escort card display. The target was filled with darling mint and gold arrows provided by Fletcher and Fox. Guests names and table assignments appeared in hand calligraphy by Curlique Designs on the fletching of each arrow. Guests really enjoyed approaching the target and locating their arrow (which also served as their wedding favor). Rather than signing a typical guest book, guests wrote messages to the couple in a coffee table book boasting images of beautiful Mount Timpanogos, the mountain that served as the beautiful and natural backdrop for Stacy and TJ’s nuptials. Overall this wedding was a joy to plan and design and I’m extremely happy with the results of this darling celebration.

Burgundy Winter Wedding Ideas

Gold and rich berry tones go together like peanut butter and jelly, no? We happen to think so, which is a major reason why we fell in love so quickly with this styled shoot from Kate Ann Photography, Pop the Cork Designs, and Nature of Design with Janet Flowers. Give me an inspired sweetheart table, a lush floral bouquet, and a romantic display of candles, and I’m one happy lady.

From the photographer, Kate of Kate Ann Photography: I sat down for coffee one afternoon with Jenna from Pop the Cork Designs and revealed my desire to photograph a bohemian gypsy themed style shoot. Jenna gathered a teamed of talented wedding professionals and the after a month of planning they made it happen! This shoot features an earthy jewel tone palette combined with religious inspirations. We had fun with candles, rosaries and vintage Madonnas. This shoot has a natural whimsical feel and our Gypsy bride exerts effortless beauty. It tells the story of a stylish bride who is strong in faith and love.

Christmas Tree Farm Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

What better venue could there be for a winter themed wedding shoot than a Christmas tree farm? Namely, this beautiful one in Elgin, TX. Emilie Anne Photography, Kindred by Karis, and Davy Gray pooled their creative talents to create a one-of-a-kind holiday-inspired shoot, complete with berry-topped cakes, decorated macarons, a festive fireplace mantel, and of course, a brilliant red bouquet.

Christmas Tree Farm Wedding Inspiration - photo by Emilie Ann Photography http://ruffledblog.com/christmas-tree-farm-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Emilie Anne: With the holiday season right around the corner, we wanted to translate classic Christmas icons into a rustic but elegant wedding. One of our biggest inspirations was the Christmas tree. We immediately knew we wanted to use the gorgeous Elgin Christmas Tree Farm. We envisioned rows of evergreen trees with our lovely bride right in the midst. The colors are simple and refined, classic deep reds and greens with gold accents. The simple paper elements with loose calligraphy that are edged in gold really set the mood for this shoot and give it an elegant charm.

The dessert table makes you feel like you are at a holiday party with that luscious caramel drizzle cake, sugared cranberries and cheery gold-brushed macarons. The wood tones were another huge inspiration; being in the trees meant a woodsy rustic feel. Setting the tablescape right amongst the trees gives the feeling of dining in a winter wonderland. We love the bride’s non-traditional shimmering nude dress, giving off a real elegance and warmth to juxtapose the rustic rows of evergreens. The florals really bring the whole shoot together with the deep reds popping perfectly from the greens, not only in the centerpiece and garland, but also from the backdrop of trees. The vignette of the fireplace mantel and wingback armchairs gives you that warm and cozy feeling when you think of sitting around the fire during the holiday season. This shoot was truly a nod to all of our favorite Christmas traditions for a beautiful holiday wedding.

A Southern Winter Wedding with Jewel Tones

Wedding Design

Something about jewel tones and the autumn season just make them perfect for each other, don’t you think? This creative team of Ashley Slater Photography, Michaela Noelle Designs, and Lindsay Coletta Designs certainly seem to think so, and we agree. Deep and dramatic floral design merges with rich berry hues to create an absolutely magical wedding inspiration shoot!

A Southern Winter Wedding with Jewel Tones - photo by Ashley Slater Photography http://ruffledblog.com/a-southern-winter-wedding-with-jewel-tones

From the event designer, Michaela Noelle: Deep berry hues mixed with feminine gold touches, whimsically designed floral arrangements with plenty of greenery, vintage china carrying out our color story, the most elegant chandelier, a dessert bar unlike anything we’ve ever seen, a romantic and flowy gown, and a stunning bride and groom who share a sweet love story. This is what our romantic, wintery inspiration shoot was made of. When we dream up the inspiration shoots for The Bloom Workshop guests to practice photographing and styling, our goal is to create something exceedingly gorgeous, different from what a bride might choose for her actual wedding day, and put together a story that is filled with unique, tiny details (perfect for the prettiest of detail shots!).

My personal favorite color is purple, but it’s often hard to find an elegant way to incorporate this hue into design schemes. The right shade is key! Because we wanted to design a scheme suited for both Fall and Winter, a deep plum and berry-purple seemed perfectly appropriate. I kept calling the palette “berry”, so from there we came up with a berry inspiration shoot, adorned with edible and delicious varieties of berries, seen in many aspects of the design. From blackberries dripping from our main floral centerpiece, to raspberries and more blackberries gracefully draping off every square inch of our dessert bar, it certainly was a shoot filled with inspiration. Each of the artists involved in the day poured their heart into their portion of the design. I loved how the two set ups (the dining table and dessert bar) complimented one another, by tying in the gold and berry elements, in the most beautiful of ways. A bold color palette is worth the risk, especially when paired with soft details!

From the designer, Sarah of Sarah Park Events: With Spring just around the corner, our vision for this shoot was to use bright colors and bring the outdoors in. Having that vision in mind, the greenhouse at Oatlands Historic House & Gardens in Leesburg, VA was the best venue to bring our vision to life.

The history behind the greenhouse is just amazing and you can see that through the photos. The old exposed brick walls was one of our favorite spots to take bridal portraits, very romantic and filled with lots of character. Our color inspiration came from the greenhouse itself so we were able to use a lot of fun and bright colors. The great thing about having events at greenhouses is that the weather can be cold and snowy outside but the inside will always be warm and colorful. We had to brave an icy cold day that day but I am extremely happy with how everything turned out and I can’t thank my vendors enough!

New Year’s Eve Cleveland Wedding

Modern Weddings

Photos by:

Suzuran Photography

Where do I even begin with this wedding? Rachel and Jeff wanted their wedding to be “vintage with a modern twist,” and brought in just the right amount of gold and Art Deco influence to carry out their dream. They found the absolute ideal location for their vision in Cleveland’s The Arcade, which is so beyond gorgeous and steeped in history that it has its own place on the National Register of Historic Places. With Suzuran Photography behind the camera and Lisa Daniel Floral Design in control of the stunning flowers, this is a wedding Daisy Buchanan would surely envy.

From the bride, Rachel: We envisioned a wedding that was vintage with a modern twist. The venue alone is spectacular so I made sure not to take away from that. The Arcade is a classic since 1890 and was one of the first large-scale indoor mercantile center in the United States. It was the first building in Cleveland and the 9th in the country to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Its elegant grandeur was the reason for choosing a New Year’s Eve wedding. So after picking a venue with such beautiful architectural details full of history and securing our New Year’s Eve date, I envisioned a party rich in glitz, glam and all things that sparkle. I went to school for merchandising and have a love for all things vintage so there was a ton of fun had when stylizing the details. I chose items/decorations I knew I could use as accessories in my house after the wedding. There were even a few unsuccessful times when Jeff tried to talk me out of taking pieces from our home to use as stylized items for the wedding.

As for a color scheme, I’ve also been pretty obsessed with anything gold for the past few years so I knew that was an absolute must. Other than that, I told my bridesmaids that I wanted them to wear all different dresses and to envision a glitzed out New Year’s Eve, over-the-top kind of party full of texture, sequins and glitter. I gave them a few inspirational photos to run with along with my pinterest board but of course had the final say. Oh, did I forget to mention that I planned everything from sunny South Florida? Since I couldn’t be home in Ohio to go dress shopping with my girls, I figured this would be easier to let them pick out a dress they’d actually wear again. Thank goodness for technology! When it came down to seeing them all together in their dresses the day of the wedding, I couldn’t have envisioned it better.

I bought all of my bridesmaids vintage hankies and stitched “no ugly crying” on them. My mother and grandmas got “I love you” ones. Mom helped with a lot. She found the large alarm clock neon and removed the old diner looking photo with an engagement photo of Jeff and I done by Sondra Kelly at NE Meadow Studio (not sure if you need any of these photos or not) and then proceeded to slathered it in gold paint. I gave her inspiration photos and ideas and she ran with it. She made the “Pop, Fizz, Clink” sign along with the “Happy New Year” sign. Then lastly the fun glittery gold arrows that pointed guests in the right direction. My mom enlisted my brother-in-law’s artsy brother to make the Arcade/Rachel and Jeff’s New Year’s Eve Wedding sign as well. He did it by hand after looking at our wedding invitation.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Stay true to who you are. One of the greatest compliments I received was about how the wedding was so “Jeff and Rachel”. Having said that, as you are planning the wedding of your dreams, flash forward 30 plus years and ask yourself the tough question, am I going to like that aspect or look back and think what was I thinking? Also, don’t be afraid to use everyday, household items to help stylize your big day. It should be an inviting environment that spews “Jeff and Rachel” or “Mary and Joseph” or whomever you may be!

Colorful Italian Wedding

DIY Weddings

Photos by:

L&V Photography

How could anyone resist this lovingly handmade and whimsical wedding from L&V Photography? Bride Elena is actually a wedding blogger herself – helping to share beautiful Italian weddings and inspiration – so it’s only natural that her own wedding would be filled to the brim with beautiful details and stunning flowers from Il Profumo Dei Fiori.

From the bride, Elena: We wanted an outdoor and informal celebration, with a slight vintage feel, lots of color, big smiles and tears of happiness. The beautiful hills of Oltrepò Pavese were the perfect location and we were so lucky to have an outdoor ceremony with a stunning view. We had an intimate wedding with only 40 guests, just family and close friends. We were so happy to get married after 8 years together and we wanted our wedding to reflect our joy. It was a wonderful day and it felt very “us.”

We wanted our wedding to be colorful and joyful with a late 50s-early 60s vibe. I chose a color scheme of red, light blue and pink with pops of yellow. We had several DIY projects for our wedding day. I’m a wedding blogger and Gabriele is a graphic designer so we wanted our wedding to feel as much personal as possible. We made over 100 paper pinwheels in different colors and size. I designed all the stationery, invitations, menu, table numbers, program fans and signs, with a little help from Gabriele. The music was a DIY project too, I spent the months leading to the wedding scouring the web for the most beautiful songs of the 50s and 60s to play during the reception. Gabriele made the oversized letters, we used them for our engagement session and then again on our wedding day as reception decor. Our family helped a lot, my grandmother made my 50s style wedding dress, my cousin did my hair and my bridesmaids were very supportive and helped us with the last details.

Leti and Viola of L&V Photography made an amazing job capturing every detail and we couldn’t be happier with the results. We will cherish these photos forever.

Ombre Flower Arrangement How-To

Flower Guide

I adore anything ombre, so when Pollen Floral Design came to us with this stunning ombre flower arrangement, I got just a tad excited! These pretty pink florals and lush greens were all captured beautifully by the talented Cambria Grace Photography and I’m happy to share them with you.

Flowers used:
– Pink Garden Rose
– Mock Orange
– White Peony
– Raspberry Scabiosa
– White Dahlia
– Fushia Ranunculus
– Foraged Greens/Berries


ombre colored flowers

From the florist, Pollen Floral Design: In order to create this ombre look, we start by foraging some local greens. If you don’t have a yard with readily available foliage, look for greens growing on the side of the road, over a fence, or ask your neighbor with the green thumb.

Once all the elements are gathered, begin designing your arrangement with your greens. You want to create a full, lush look that will be the basic structure for you design.


ombre colored flowers

Then we start creating the color gradient by placing the white blooms on the right side of the arrangement. Place your larger flowers first (peonies and garden roses). Then fill in any remaining holes with a smaller white flower (mock orange, dahlias or other small bloom).

Continue building your color gradient by adding more and more pink as you build to the left side of the arrangement. Again, start by adding your larger roses and peonies first, then add in the smaller scabiosa flowers and buds for additional texture and depth.

If you prefer to make an ombre bouquet, follow the same steps, but hold the stems in your hand as you design and tie them off with a beautiful ribbon!
