Get Inspired by This Beautiful Wedding Cake Table

Wedding Design

In today’s styled shoot, Olivia Morgan Photography and Southern Grace Events used the charm of their Southern locale to its full potential with a sleek color palette of black, white, and green to accent lovely vignettes. Of course, we have to mention the bride’s gown from One Fine Day Bridal Salon, because those beaded cap sleeves are seriously calling our name. We’re particularly smitten with both the beautiful wedding cake and its creative display — aren’t you?

Moody Industrial Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Figtree Pictures

There’s nothing we love more than watching a bare space be transformed to reach its fullest potential, and this styled shoot from Australian vendors Little Gray Station, Alstonville Florist and Figtree Pictures is no exception. This creative collaboration took place at a private property with the most glorious industrial shed and an even better view! From the tablescape lit by soaring marsala tapers and hanging Edison bulbs to the dessert display with a trio of fruit-adorned cakes, it doesn’t get much better than this. (Though they even outdo themselves with that blackberry ice-cream cart!) Romantic and moody and fit for a statement-making couple, we hope you enjoy this utterly divine soiree.

Gothic Glam Fall Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Gaudium Photography

Halloween has dawned upon us and what better inspiration to share today than one draped in swirls of marsala and wispy stripes of marble in a very glam and gothic setting. Gaudium Photography shared this haunting beauty orchestrated by Max & Dexter Event Design and it is all sorts of fabulous. With bold and elegance, this shoot is filled with rich, dark hues and moody florals courtesy of The Arrangement Company. All of these fine elements band together against the best architectural location you can think of for all of these Fall-inspired wedding elements, and it is nothing short of wonderful.

Industrial Glam Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

An art deco inspired affair, today’s styled shoot boasts an incredible transformation of an industrial warehouse into sleek + sophisticated wedding inspiration. Lemiga Events partnered with Akeem Clayton to ensure that the sharp color blocking and acrylic table numbers were softened by towering floral arrangements and plush lounge settings. With a flickering seating chart display, the room is brought to life, and the resulting images from Alexis June are pure magic!

Industrial Glam Wedding Inspiration - photo by Alexis June Weddings http://ruffledblog.com/industrial-glam-wedding-inspiration

From the event designers, Lemiga Events: We love working with unique venue spaces to create an unexpected event design. For our winter styled shoot we were inspired by the Atlanta Daylight Studio located in the creative Westside District of Atlanta. Originally a 1920s Shell Oil facility, Atlanta Daylight Studio is a beautifully restored warehouse with metal riveted walls, beams and high ceilings. With multiple rows of windows, it is completely daylight controlled with the click of a switch. The unique character of the space created a raw and industrial backdrop to our luxe design.

Fall Wedding Inspiration with Jewel Tones

Wedding Design

Just in time for delightful fall weather, Ashlee Mintz Photography graces us with this equally-delightful bridal inspiration. Designed by Arielle Fera Events, the shoot is set in a lovely moody color palette with the prettiest shades of seasonal colors outside of the norm of oranges and browns, like cool plums, charcoal grey, and navy blue. Lightening up the wedding editorial are the exceptional dresses in neutral shades to die for. Let’s not forget about the insanely-good arrangements by Allium Floral Design; from the wedding centerpieces to the bouquets, the floral designs were one of the many cherries on top of this wedding shoot!

From the photographer, Ashlee Mintz Photography: Collaborating with Arielle Fera Events to bring this dark moody vision to life led to the most beautiful, gothic, and romantic wedding inspiration. This shoot has a lot of different elements/details, from the lush floral tablescape to the cabbage that lies under a marble name card. The palette included rich, deep tones of purples, blacks, charcoals, and blues. These jewel tones evoked the most magical setting for a stunning bride and her bridesmaids.

Modern Downtown Los Angeles Wedding

Modern Weddings

A pair of newlyweds who never stop smiling and dance down the aisle are definitely our kinds of people. Anna Delores Photography captured Megan and Donald’s modern wedding at LA’s Millwick House, a venue so full of lush greenery that it nearly reminds us of a tropical oasis. Abby Lee Events helped the couple’s vision come alive, right down to the Mario and Princess Peach cake topper.

Modern Downtown Los Angeles Wedding - http://ruffledblog.com/modern-downtown-los-angeles-wedding

From the photographer, Anna Delores Photography: Megan and Donald stole our hearts after telling us that they met during a Zumba class (how freaking adorable is that?!?), and they couldn’t wait to bring the East and West Coast families together for a big day of love. This D.C. based couple decided to hold their wedding at the modern Millwick in the heart of Los Angles Arts District and Abby Lee Events worked closely with Megan to curate this gem of a wedding.

Game of Thrones on the Beach Wedding Editorial

The More We See

Who’s a “Game of Thrones” fanatic over here? Raise your hand proudly and if your spirit animal is Daenerys, you’re going to fawn over this ultra-creative shoot from the lens of The More We Seebelovely floral and event design wondered what the Mother of Dragons’ wedding day would look like if she decided to get hitched, and it’s nothing short of amazing. With a beach-boho vibe and a striking black dress separate, we think Dany would definitely approve of this intimate wedding inspiration.

From the event designers, belovely floral and event design: When we thought about doing a beach photo shoot, we wanted to put a creative spin on it. For any East Coast (Philadelphia/Jersey) residents, a ‘wedding down the shore’ always has that typical nautical vibe going with it, and we wanted to try something new! At the time of planning our photo shoot, Game of Thrones was still running and we thought to ourselves, “What if Daenerys got married?”

We found ourselves answering with a beach wedding filled with rich tones, textures, unexpected elements and of course a touch of “fire.” For a girl who is always wearing white or blue, we envisioned her in a beautiful black wedding gown allowing her to really pop off the oceanic landscapes. We designed the shoot to of course have a few coastal touches (cause you can’t fully ignore the ocean!) along with Moroccan and bad-ass elements – Mother of Dragons is nothing short of the toughest girl we know!

Modern and Linear Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

We see what stylists Taylor and Katherine from Aisle Planner mean when they laid eyes on the venue for this place: it’s the perfect spot for creativity to run rampant and theirs sure did with this trendy, contemporary wedding shoot by Cavin Elizabeth Photography. It’s full of razor-sharp lines, clean and bright colors, and just the slightest dash of romance from the florals by The Flower Shop; because we all need a dash of romance, right?

Modern and Linear Wedding Inspiration - photo by Cavin Elizabeth Photography http://ruffledblog.com/modern-and-linear-geometric-wedding-inspiration

From the stylists, Taylor Hollman and Katherine Oyer from Aisle Planner: Sharp geometrics, defined lines and a stark black-and-white palette come together to create modern wedding inspo like you’ve never seen in this perfectly styled shoot. The Romantik Studio made for a killer setting—their clean-slate studio provided stylists Tayler Hollman and Katherine Oyer of Aisle Planner the perfect blank canvas to play with, and Cavin of Cavin Elizabeth Photography captured their vision beautifully. Hollman and Oyer dressed the bride-for-the-day in an ethereal pleated piece from The Dress Theory that softened up the sharpness of the shoot perfectly, and really set the scene for what we can only describe as oh-so-chic modern romance.

Lucky To Be In Love created a marbled invitation suite as mesmerizing as they come, and Amy Samuel of The Flower Shop crafted wild, sprawling floral arrangements that managed to feel both sharp and soft. Greenery as bright as it was lush played perfectly against soft white roses—and both were complemented by pops of pink and dusty lavender ranunculi.

The oh-so dreamy florals sat pretty against a scene that was sharp and super defined. The tablescape embodied the definition of modern with its black-and-white palette brought to life through polygon plates and place mats boasting oh-so-pretty patterns. The gold chairs provided by Folklore Rentals where the show-stopping and added modern and masculine lines to the scene. Gold flatware and airy gold-wire chairs added a touch of metallic that really brought the shoot to life, and—our favorite part—Jenny Wenny Cakes handcrafted a two-tiered cake that encompassed the aesthetic of the entire scene in one (super tasty) treat. The stylish spread was complete with unbelievable poke plate provided by Waters Catering and Fine Foods—and blackberry mojitos we’re still washing it all down.

Geometric Gems Styled Elopement

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Sonia Bourdon

In this absolutely breathtaking styled shoot from Sonia Bourdon Photographe, we saw creativity at its finest unfold. Mlle Artsy was the designer for this and rather than shy away from the cold temperatures, they embraced it, threw a pretty dress in and a bespoke suit for good measure, and dolled up this cave to no end. This setting definitely comes with ample inspiration, so Flore&Sens Atelier Floral created colorful arrangements that meshed perfectly with the aesthetic of the shoot and its surroundings. Who says all of the warm months get to have all of the fun styled shoots?

copper wedding accents - photo by Sonia Bourdon Photographe http://ruffledblog.com/geometric-gems-styled-elopement

From the event designers, Mlle Artsy: This creative shoot was inspired by our magnificent wintry landscapes of Canada. We are blessed to have such breathtaking scenery here, and we had to put nature at the forefront of our styled elopement shoot. We were greatly inspired by the cave at Arbraska Laflèche, with its unbelievable stalagmites and gorgeous stone walls. The cave inspired our colour palette: shades of white, gold, rust and black, and completed our palette with a rich dark turquoise color that we used as our accent color. We incorporated geometrics, granite, geodes, quartz and gems into the shoot, which tied into the location. Those quartz perfectly complemented the stalagmites and stalactites found on site. We transform this cave into a mine of Ice and Gems. Finally, a winter wedding is not completed without furs, especially for their rich textures and warm colours.

Modern Minimalist Dallas Wedding

Garden Weddings

Ghost chairs, a seating chart arrangement with a unique neon sign, and one of the sweetest couples we’ve seen are some of the reasons why we love this Dallas affair photographed by Sarah Kate Photographer. With Stefanie Miles executing all of the details of the day, Rae and Kurt planned a modern wedding day with the most elegant color palette. To complement it, bows + arrows incorporated white and ivory blooms and heaps of botanical greens to add to the lovely minimalism of the day. What a stunner this fête was!

From the photographer, Sarah Kate Photographer: Rae and Kurt’s wedding was brimming with minimalist inspiration designed by Stefanie Miles and lush tropical inspired foliage by Bows & Arrows that added just the right amount of color and texture.  The couple hosted a small family wedding ceremony in their own backyard and chose The Nasher Sculpture Garden to host a large reception the next day!  Wolfgang Puck was there to serve up all kinds of fantastic dishes for the guests and The Grand Bevy bartended specialty beverages including edible cocktails.  Guests dined and danced among the sculptures and Sarah Kate captured all the fun!

Moody Black and White Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Let’s just say we’ve never seen a black and white wedding setting we didn’t like. This one, captured by Abigail Bobo Photography and styled by Sage Nines Event Production is no exception. They took a moody approach with this classic color duo and the results are absolutely scrumptious.

modern wedding dresses - photo by Abigail Bobo Photography http://ruffledblog.com/moody-black-and-white-wedding-ideas

From the event and floral designer, Sage Nines Event Production: The inspiration behind this shoot came from a favorite black and ivory tapestry that I found. I love that black is making such a comeback in weddings, but wanted to feature it in an edgy and less formal setting than I have typically seen it. Our bride and groom models, Brittainy and Brandon, are married in real life but had eloped to Mexico, so it was a perfect opportunity for them to get dressed up again and enjoy having Abigail Bobo capture some more sweet images of them! Brittainy wore a stunning two piece dress by Bo and Luca from The Dress Theory, which was a perfect blend of elegance and edge. We dressed the maids in all black, which gave me the liberty to go in any direction with the florals. I literally had no preconceived notions about a color palette and just went with what looked amazing at the wholesaler that week, which turned out to be white anemones with black centers, orange ranunculus, and coral charm peonies.

Modern Copper and Emerald Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Michelle and Logan

Copper has become such a trendy metallic color and fixture lately and it’s so easy to see why. It acts as a great filler for any type of wedding palette; whether you’re using elegant and neutral colors or if you choose bold and vibrant shades, a dusting of copper throughout your wedding can bring everything together. In this beautiful shoot by Michelle and Logan, Blush Events created some modern and chic inspiration using black and white stripes along with emerald. To dress it up more, they tossed in small doses of copper via the place settings and that delicious cake. For a great complement, The Rose Shop stuck to lovely whites and greens for florals and nestled some arrangements in geo planters. So fun! This is one inspiration shoot that could not have been more amazing.

green wedding ideas photo by Michelle and Logan http://ruffledblog.com/modern-copper-and-emerald-wedding-ideas

From the photographers, Michelle and Logan: We worked with Blush Events to create something unique and new for our area with this styled wedding shoot. Living in our region of Idaho, it seems that brides feel they need to all have cookie-cutter type receptions. We wanted to show how brides can use this brand new venue to do something different!! We went with copper, black, and emerald green to really bring in the clean modern feeling with the geometric shapes. It looked incredible in the venue with the exposed brick wall and natural window light. We had an amazing team of vendors to bring the ideas and vision to life. My husband and I are a husband/wife photo+video team and I felt that we really were able to capture the essence of the shoot together!

Swan House Spring Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Never in my life have I come across a shoot more utterly romantic than today’s feature from Simply Sarah Photography and Elleson Events. Featuring not one but two stunning gowns (one of which boasts a beautiful icy blue skirt), a venue that’s nothing short of breathtaking, and a wedding table we can’t help but love, we know you won’t be able to resist the photo shoot’s beauty either.

From the photographer, Simply Sarah Photography: Inspired by the rich history, beautiful detailing and expert craftsmanship of The Swan Coach House in Atlanta, Georgia, Hollie with Elleson Events took our vision along with our sweet couple Amanda and Ryan and turned it into something truly beautiful. Today, we’re taking you to The historic Swan House mansion with natural wedding inspiration, organic details and a perfect Alexandra Grecco wedding gown with floral detailing flown all the way in from the Bozeman, Montana. We chose a neutral color palette infused with soft pops of rose quartz and serenity, the pantone colors of the year. These delicate details paired perfectly with the stunning architecture of The Swan House and allowed the sweet love shared between these two to really shine!

Spring Watercolor Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Such a stunning wedding by Anna Smith Photography! There’s nothing quite like a classic wedding color palette of black and white and keeping the florals fresh with a white-and-green theme. It’s probably one of my most favorite combinations and it gets me every time, especially since I’m reminded of my own wedding day colors! I love how Madison and Chris’s big day worked in such timeless elements with very modern ones like the dapper gentlemen in tuxedos, the traditional church wedding, Madison’s eclectic bridal style (who else loves her short and textured hairdo?), and their gray-hued wedding stationery with that fun pop of orange watercolors. This wedding by Pick Me! Weddings is a great example of when different wedding styles come together so well!

spring watercolor wedding - photo by Anna Smith Photography http://ruffledblog.com/spring-watercolor-wedding

From the photographer, Anna Smith Photography: Madison and Chris were such a joy to spend the day with. I first med Madison during our boudoir session, which rocked by the way. Madison had such a classic, elegant taste for the wedding day and wanted to bring in some of the couple’s cultural heritage. She fell in love with an Israeli wedding dress at a trunk show and never looked back. The dress designer was Inbal Dror and her wedding dress made for a stunning, modern and classic beauty with an open back. With help of Rami Carter from Pick Me Weddings, who traveled all the way from Colorado to style the event – the day turned out to be gorgeous.

The wedding ceremony was held at one of the oldest churches in Waco, First Baptist followed by the reception at the most up-scale Waco venue, The Ridgewood Country club. Large chandeliers and hardwood floors with beautiful lush flowers and colorful up lighting brought the day together. Parchment and Paper stationary designed her invites as well as menu place settings. Each bridesmaid wore a different dress which reflected a Grecian style in light of the groom being Greek. LoveShackFancy & Adrianna Papell were the bridesmaid dress designers. Having a large bridal party of 8 bridesmaids and 8 groomsmen is just a small reflection of how much love they received on their wedding day.

They wanted this to be a special day, but most of all fun for their guests who traveled from near and far. After dinner was served to the 200 – something guests, the highlight of the night was the gorgeous wedding cake made by the very talented Frosted Art Bakery. This was one of the most delicious cakes I have ever had! The couple’s favorite moment of the night was passing out sunglasses and having a huge dance party. Everyone loved putting these on and joined in on the fun. Overall this was such a gorgeous day and we lucked out with the weather being sunny on the first weekend of March. The sparkler exist was a treat because the exit car belonged to the bride’s grandfather!

Colorful Woodland Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

I hope you’re ready for a burst of color, because you’re about to get it from this styled shoot by Caroline Ross Photography, Umbrella Events, and Green With Envy. The team dreamt of a Kate Spade-meets-the-outdoors theme, and we love how they were able to bring nods to nature indoors. Top it all off with a delicious looking dessert table, and we’re all set!

Ruffled - photo by Caroline Ross Photography http://ruffledblog.com/colorful-woodland-wedding-inspiration

From the event designer, Umbrella Events: This is our stylized session from Vancouver, Canada, with a theme of Kate Spade in the woods. We used a lot of different vendors for this shoot and everyone was really enthusiastic about the Kate Spade theme. We wanted stripes and hot pinks along with a woodsy theme, and used gold animals and a beautiful hanging wreath to bring the outdoors in!

Modern Black and White Wedding with Emerald

Modern Weddings

Any couple who describes their wedding theme as “Kate Spade met The Wicked Witch of the West” has already garnered my attention and adoration, and this wedding did not disappoint. Sarah Libby Photography, Everything Beautiful OKC, and Leigh and Louise Design came together to work on Avery and Michael’s modern wedding with a clean color palette of black, white, gold, and green, with a bit of burgundy in the floral arrangements for good measure.

From the bride, Avery: I would describe our wedding style as Kate Spade meets Boho chic. If Kate Spade fell into a forest, that’s the feel we were going for. Somehow our end phrase became Kate Spade met The Wicked Witch of the West.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Don’t follow protocol. Just because that’s the way it’s always been done doesn’t mean that’s how it has to be. Make it your own and then own it. Secondly, take a moment to take it all in, it. Thirdly, don’t pay $1,000 for your veil. A full cathedral veil with a blusher cost us $18.00.

Avery stunned in her long sleeve plunging neck gown by Madison James from Beloved Bridal and Michael could not stop looking at her. Michael surprised her with her grandmother’s ring to wear as her wedding band and the tears flowed. The bridesmaids wore bold emerald Badgley MIschka gowns and the groomsmen wore a classic tux. They were married at sunset overlooking the Oklahoma farmlands. They chose bold tablecloths to fancy up their reception space and chose a non-traditional cake table filled with fancy donuts and cookies. They also had specialty pizza’s prepared for all of their guests from their favorite pizza place. They had a confetti entrance to their reception and partied with family and friends before their sparkler sendoff!

Glam Holiday Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Emily Sacco

There’s no time like the holiday season for glam wedding inspiration, and this shoot from Emily Sacco, Calluna Events, and Merci Bouquet Floral brings it in full force. A team of Denver’s best and brightest came together to create this shoot inspired by a roaring 20s theme with a hint of edginess, chock full of black, gold, and red accents. How did it all turn out? You’ll just have to see for yourself!

glam holiday wedding inspiration - photo by Emily Sacco http://ruffledblog.com/glam-holiday-wedding-inspiration

From the event designers, Calluna Events: Energized by the changing seasons and the colder temperatures, we at Calluna Events set out with a mission to curate a shoot that catered to both the winter bride and holiday party enthusiast. Armed with the color palette of black, gold, and bright hues of red, we were completely inspired and ran with an edgy roaring 20s vibe that was dripping in glitz and glam! We paired up with Denver’s talented vendors – each bringing their own personal flair and interpretation to our speakeasy theme and together a sultry, rich, and totally gorgeous shoot came together. Epernay Lounge in downtown Denver served double duty not only as our one of a kind sultry venue, but assisted in the ideation of our spooky speakeasy, contributing everything from the dripping tapered candles to the gold gilded pumpkins. Merci Bouquet showed up with extravagant blooms in hand, exploding with texture and color. The unexpected combo of fruits + florals to garnish the tablescape effortlessly complemented our distinct color palette, bringing poise and synergy to the entire shoot.

Dark boutonnieres flattered the eye-catching textured bouquets, and an abundant array of candles topped off the vibrant black sequined La Tavola linen. Gold flatware, chargers and matte black napkins were the finishing touches. Each detail was carefully crafted to dramatize our gorgeous venue and complete the already sexy, intimate vibe. It was nearly impossible to tear your eyes away from the giltz of it all. A & Be bridal shop generously presented two never been photographed dresses for the shoot. The Catherine Dean “Tallulah” dress and the Rue de Seine “Leif” dress from the 2016 “Nomadic Love” Collection were featured and individually lent a hand in completing the look we were striving to accomplish. The simplicity and elegance of each dress were breathtaking and stole the show. We loved the intricate beading detail on both dresses, emulating the Great Gatsby glamour with a modern edgy spin… swoon. Our grooms were clothed in beautiful custom Bespoke Edge suits – clean, polished, and perfectly suave.

Our couple sat like royalty in Charming Chairs’ King chairs – their newest edition and a never been photographed specialty. With such a commanding presence, we paired these one of a kind love seats alongside the clean white Louise chair to create a juxtaposition of our darker colors. Lolli and Pops took us back the Roaring 20s with indulgent sweets and candies – Charleston Chews, cream sodas and gold and silver rock candy that looked almost too good to eat. Sugarmill brought our delicious macaroons, decorated with flecks of gold and delicate black detail. Each sweet treat seamlessly fell into the mix. Bubbles were popped over a dramatic champagne tower, compliments of Moet & Chandon Champagne. The intricate tower was handcrafted on top of a glamorous gold sequin linen provided by Event Rents. Last but certainly not least, Emily Sacco from Emily Sacco Photography photographed the entire shoot. The angles she captured, the colors she accentuated, and the overall feeling she curated through her photos was absolutely jaw dropping. We are overjoyed with the final product!

Surprise Holiday Elopement Brunch

Wedding Design

A holiday elopement brunch? Get out of town, because you just mentioned three of my favorite things. This styled shoot from Jenna Bechtholt Photography and Dandy & Fine Parties pairs a chic brunch celebration with festive holiday decor, using gold and black in the chicest of ways and adding punches of bright red and soft pink floral accents.

From the event designers, Dandy & Fine Parties: We absolutely love elopements celebrated with an intimate group of closest friends. We also love the idea of a wedding brunch, set with a fancy pants mimosa bar. Then add the holiday season in with all of it’s lovely rich jewel tones and soft, velvety textures. And on top of it all, the bride and groom are surprising their friends who have no idea they have just eloped! So, they casually send out their online invitations for a Holiday Celebration to throw them off track. Then, they officially announce their elopement at the first cheers of the morning!

As the guests arrive they are invited to belly up to the Bubbly Bar where they can build their own holiday mimosa in gold sugar rimmed glasses, with a choice of apple cider, cranberry juice, pomegranate juice or rose water. Then they can top it off with extra festive garnishes like cinnamon sticks, sugar dusted cranberries, rock candy sticks, rosemary or pomegranate seeds. Now is the the time for that first cheers of the morning… let the celebrations begin!

It’s time for brunch! Everyone sits down to a table setting decked out in lush, wintry glamour. The black velvet table runner is topped with romantic, voluptuous floral arrangements, and the taper candles in gilded candlesticks add extra regal glamour. Vintage glassware in pops of green and blue jewel tones grace each place setting. The china is topped with cranberry linen napkins carefully tied with black velvet ribbons with gold polka dots and thoughtful, calligraphed name cards. Gilded eucalyptus also makes an appearance to add that last fine detail. To get extra festive, mini green garlands are tied to each chair back. The celebration goes on for hours, pretty much all day, as the bubbles keep flowing! A beautiful wintry day of gathering around the table with the best of friends and celebrating love, that will forever be cherished.

Chicago Warehouse Wedding

Blue Label, Romantic Weddings

Chicago’s Salvage One has long been one of our favorite venues for industrial weddings — it’s simply the perfect backdrop for a variety of so many different styles. Beth and Brandon chose to contrast the industrial space with romantic decor and floral design, bringing on board the talented Artistrie Co., A Stem Above, and North Shore Weddings and Events to round out their vision!

From the bride, Beth: I wanted my wedding to be the most amazing day surrounded by my closest family and friends. I wanted everyone to laugh, feel the love and good energy in the room, and most of all be smiling and have a great time! It was important to me that the day felt intimate, cozy and comfortable for everyone there.

I did not have any color theme as I usually tend to love neutrals, blacks and gray. I loved the brightness and the delicateness that the white/lighter color flowers brought to the wedding. I loved Salvage One for its brick walls, concrete and romantic darker lighting and I wanted to include design that complimented that natural setting. One of my favorite pieces of the wedding were the mismatched lace table runners that my mom and I found from all over the country. We started collecting them and each one was special in its own way and I love how they pulled together the gorgeous table settings. I was also lucky enough to have my sister in law Alissa do all of the graphic design work for the wedding, so everything we printed was tied together. The invitations, to the welcome bags, to the programs all had a similar theme which I loved! She also designed a logo for us that we used on a wide range of pieces throughout the wedding. See attached for an example of the logo used on our program.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Make sure your wedding is the most amazing party you want to be at and never want to end! There are so many details, questions, decisions to be made, so try to remember to have fun with it and don’t stress about the small stuff! Also spend the most time on the details of the wedding that are the most important to you. Brandon and I knew we wanted our dance floor packed the entire evening, so the details around the music were very important to us. We found an amazing band (Front of House) and had so much fun working with the band to talk through songs and the theme for the night!

Wedding Music:
My mom found an incredible folk guitar duo from the Old Town School of Music in Chicago. They were an adorable couple and they played an incredible variety of Bob Dylan songs which we loved hearing and knew everyone in attendance would enjoy as well. “Don’t Think Twice its Alright”, “Shelter From the Storm” and “Forever Young”.

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!

When there’s a photography workshop led by the incomparable Jeremy Chou Photography, it’s a safe bet the result is going to be pretty magical.

Romantic Peach Wedding at LA Arboretum

Bohemian Weddings

When your inspiration for your wedding day is Anthropologie, it’s a safe bet you’ll be dealing in some seriously eclectic and chic style. That’s the look bride Savannah went for when she married her beau Coleman in Los Angeles, with the talented Joe+Kathrina Photography and Tasteful Tatters in tow. Add in some DIY touches from the bride’s family and friends, and you’ve got this beautiful result!

romantic peach wedding at LA Arboretum - photo by Joe and Kathrina Photography http://ruffledblog.com/romantic-peach-wedding-at-la-arboretum

From the bride, Savannah: I would definitely have to say that Anthropologie inspired the look and feel of my wedding. The Anthropologie brand and style is distinct and easy to identify, which is what I wanted people to think of my wedding; when they walked into our venue and looked around I wanted them to feel my personal style through the entire decor. I wanted each guest to think, “Wow, this feels just like Coleman and Savannah.” Well… who am I kidding? My cowboy husband definitely doesn’t exactly have the Anthropologie style, but you know what I mean, I wanted it to feel like us :) Bold patterns, an artistic feel and a feminine touch, were all things I drew upon from the Anthropologie style.

My wonderful wedding coordinator Emilee Sutherland and her team created these amazing DIY napkins for all of our guests. They were so beautiful and exactly what I wanted. The Tasteful Tatter team also made these to die for cake and pie boxes so that the guests could all take a slice of pie or cake home as their favor. This is just another example of them making my vision come to life, I showed them a picture and they did it! They are incredible. My last name is Lay, like Lay’s potato chips, so as a fun and personal touch we also handed out Lay’s potato chips with a cute tag as another favor. So cheesy, but cute! My cute momma and all of her friends also made individual cakes for each table. This way, when my hubby and I cut the cake, all of our guests were able to cut their cake at the same time. The individual cakes were so beautiful and such a unique touch. It was a perfect way to engage the guests and make them part of the experience.

Wedding Music:
First Dance: “Making Memories of Us,” Keith Urban

From the photographers, Joe+Kathrina Photography: Savannah had told friends, “I’m going to marry a cowboy one day.” As she went off to college little did she know that she’d really meet her cowboy. Enter: Coleman, an actual farmer whose family owns and runs a farming business in Oregon. Friends knew instantly these two were in it for life. While planning a wedding in California, Savannah worked on finishing up school in Boise – which needless to say made it all quite difficult. They were hard set on their June date which made it even more difficult to find the perfect outdoor venue where they could really put their own touches to bring together both their city and country families together. Savannah’s parents really helped find their venue and with Emilee and her team this wedding came together perfectly. There were hints of DIY with romantic flair throughout the day. From each table having their own homemade cake and different cake topper as their centerpieces, plexi glass menus, a thrift found bike with a basket as their escort “table”, a fun pattern as their tablecloth, a large “Love is Patient” decor at their sweetheart table, and of course cowboy boots. We had only been able to meet with Savannah in person before the wedding, which is always nerve racking having to wait until the wedding day to meet the groom but Coleman could not have been more gracious. Watching these two and photographing them together, they were so natural in each others arms. Most of all you could fee; their happiness together. It was a good day.

Whimsical Backyard Garden Wedding

DIY Weddings

We adore hearing photographers’ descriptions of their couples’ wedding days, and Cassie Lopez Photography related the wedding of Chloe and Caleb to that of a “DIY Marie Antoinette in the suburbs.” Merci Bouquet shone on floral detail, putting together a bouquet full of garden roses, ferns, kale, cotton, and even tomato vine as a nod to the bride’s grandfather.

From the bride, Chloe: I wanted a romantic southern vintage garden wedding. Caleb and I wanted our wedding to be intimate so we held the ceremony and reception in my parents backyard (the home where I grew up). Both my mother and grandmother were married in their homes so we thought that mom moms garden would be the perfect setting.

Flower recipe: The arrangements and bouquets featured English roses, cotton, ornamental kale, fern leaves, and gold dipped leaves. I had a piece of tomato vine added to my bouquet in memory of my grandfather who was an avid gardener. His hands always smelled like tomato vine and I wanted to carry a piece of him with me that day.

I’d describe our wedding as whimsical, romantic, and intimate. As far as a color theme/scheme we used a lot of navy, gold, ivory lace, and black & white stripes. The majority of color came from the garden flowers. I built the stained glass window display for our ceremony, hand made all of our save the dates/invitations, and guest favors. My mother and I planted and gardened all of the flowers throughout the yard and my father built the beautiful deck for our ceremony. I spent a lot of time searching for floral vintage plates and other antique fixtures. Most of these items were bought from peddlers malls and antique shops throughout Louisville.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Try not to get caught up in what other people want for you and your partner. Everyone has their own opinions but your wedding is truly a day to celebrate who you are as a couple. We are so happy that we kept our wedding personal and unique to who we are. I think that because of this you can really see our personality.

Wedding Music:
Processional: “Island in the Sun,” Weezer (Vitamin String Quartet tribute)
Recessional: “Sea of Love,” Phil Phillips
First Dance: “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea,” Neutral Milk Hotel
Father/Daughter Dance: “Crimson and Clover,” Tommy James and the Shondells

From the photographer, Cassie Lopez: This wedding reminded me of a DIY Marie Antoinette in the suburbs. Chloe created a beautiful wedding on the deck in her parent’s garden in Louisville, Kentucky. White sheets and string lights draped in the trees and gold accents brought light to the table decorations. Chloe and Caleb are both eccentric and their wedding completely reflected that with vintage pieces, a striped aisle, an animal headed couple as a cake topper and “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea” by Neutral Milk Hotel as their first dance song. Every detail was quirky, elegant, sentimental and fun.

Pecan Springs Ranch Wedding with Vintage Touches

Whimsical Weddings

We always know to expect big things when a wedding planner gets married. Funnily enough, bride Paige of Pure Love Style would have been content with eloping, but with her husband Matt participating in over 20 weddings over the years, he was ready for his own celebration. Commence the party planning! Paige brought along AL Gawlik Photography, Sarah Goss Photography, and The Flower Girl to round out her vision, and the result is one vibrant and fun wedding perfect for the couple with lots of vintage touches.

From the bride, Paige: As a lover of all things old and vintage I knew right away that our inspiration would come from our many trips to the Round Top Antique week and other various flea markets. Not only did I want the flea market feel at our wedding, I also wanted equine accents. My true passion in life is my horses! I’ve been riding and showing horses for over 25 years so it just wouldn’t be my style with out special horse touches. It wasn’t hard for us to achieve this look since my home and my families have pretty much been outfitted by years of “junking”!

We were asked no less than a dozen times what our “colors” were, well we didn’t exactly have a traditional wedding color palette. I’m a big fan of black and white stripes and was determined to incorporate it into our décor. After many local linen appointments we found exactly what we were looking for at La Tavola linens. We decided to not just do black and white stripes but to do a mix of black and white patterns. We went with black and white stripe table runners on farm wood tables, white with black polka dot linens on our cocktail tables, black and white large check linens on our vendor tables and our patterns of black and white linens were all tied together with our one white textured linen that went on the round guest tables.

As a floral designer flowers were a top priority to me. My flowers were so important that I bought an off the rack wedding dress from Nordstrom in the cocktail dress section for $300 so that I could spend more on my floral!! I wanted bright and bold flowers and lots of texture. I ended up deciding on shades of pink, fuchsia, reds, blush, coral & burgundy for my floral colors… I said I wanted bold and bright! To achieve my over the top floral designs I collaborated with my dear friend, Kari Shelton of The Flower Girl. We have worked together numerous times and I knew she would be the perfect design partner for my floral arrangements. The floral plan was very vague; no two arrangements could look the same, no “traditional” vases / containers, and each table would have multiple arrangements along with little “whatnots” to accomplish my vision.

One of our other wedding goals was to have a delicious and tasty wedding. We obviously accomplished this with our food trucks but we added even more deliciousness by have 5 smallish wedding cakes, totaling 3 different flavors, to create a cake display versus just one big cake. Simon Lee Bakery did an amazing job with our wedding cakes. Matt and I both share the love of homemade pecan pie! We persuaded my grandmother to make us 20 pecan pies so that we could share our favorite pie with our friends. We even displayed her recipe and Matt’s Grandmother’s pecan pie recipe as part of our pie display. We served our cake and pie off vintage cake plates and people were even able to take pie slices home with them in our kraft pie slice to go box.

As a wedding planner one of my biggest fears was to have a boring wedding and there’s no question ours was NOT boring. I’m a huge confetti fan and was able to talk my parents into letting us have a confetti cannon go off later in the night over the dance floor. We kept it a secret from all of our friends and it was one of best-kept secrets ever! The look on their faces when the confetti canon went off was priceless… a little confetti will definitely get bodies on the dance floor. We were having so much fun we didn’t want the night to end. My Mom was insistent that we leave and not keep partying! I couldn’t figure out why it was a big deal if we went a little longer since my family owns the venue. Well, it’s a good thing we listened to Mom and did our sparkler exit because she and my family had arranged to surprise us with fireworks! After our sparkler exit we jumped on the tailgate of our friend Amy’s vintage truck (the same one I rode in going to the ceremony) and headed down the drive; as we approached the road out of Pecan Springs we were showered in fireworks that lined the road. We were completely surprised and in awe! It was absolutely the perfect ending to a perfect night!

Colorful Boho Wedding at Historic Cedarwood

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

Teale Photography

Oodles of gorgeous pinks, tons of lush greenery, an inspiring bohemian ceremony backdrop, and beautiful flowers everywhere you look make this wedding from Teale Photography and Cedarwood Weddings one for the books. If anything, this wedding proves that fuchsia is nothing less than a color for all seasons!

From the bride, Larin: We wanted to create an environment that blended rustic elegance with the organic warmth of a backyard bash. Capitalizing on the raw beauty of Cedarwood Weddings, our styling was romantic, playful, and totally us! I wanted our personal style to shine through in the details – and our guests definitely noticed! The color scheme, inspired by my bedroom pillows actually, was intended to complement the natural setting – blush to vibrant pinks, lush greenery, and mixed metals.

From the very beginning, I knew I wanted our altar to be a lasting artifact we could display in our home. I created this free-flowing installation to give the already beautiful backdrop a layer of depth and whimsy. The pinks and florals were perfectly juxtaposed with more masculine accents – woods, skulls, antlers, and other raw materials to create an earthy vibe. And if my husband loves anything more than me, it’s his country – insert American flag everywhere.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Be you and have fun with it! Enjoy making each little decision – just try to make them only once! If you’re into DIY and questioning what to take-on yourself – I urge you to commit to at least one project! Just be sure to give yourself plenty of time, and you’ll be happy you did. Give your bridesmaids the opportunity to shine! I’m so thrilled each of the girls’ dresses wove their personalities into our day. Pick a venue that you find aesthetically special, even in it barest form, to be your canvas. Cedarwood Weddings offers guests a variety of settings on one property and the effortless flow from one to the next kept guests on their toes! Offer out-of-town guests a taste of your hometown, even if it is adopted. For us that meant a historic property exuding Southern charm, a bluegrass duo in the barn cocktail hour, and late-night hot chicken bites! And, let’s not underestimate the power of Southern folklore – our buried bottle of bourbon diverted a storm! Choose an experienced team and you’ll sleep better. Entrusting my vision to one holistic team made planning a (really fun) breeze – thank you for bringing our vision to life!

Annabel Lee Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

As Halloween draws nearer, what could provide better inspiration than Edgar Allen Poe’s “Annabel Lee?” Tulip + Rose Photography and asrai garden are the creative minds behind this shoot inspired by one of Poe’s most famous works, and they filled the dreamy shoot with gobs of grey, black, and muted blues, setting the mood perfectly for a chic Halloween.

From the photographer, Tulip + Rose Photography: As lovers of all things romantic and the Halloween holiday, we have always wanted to do a dreamy wedding inspiration that played to both. We drew our inspiration from Edgar Allan Poe’s poem, “Annabel Lee;” which is a story of lovelorn romance set at a kingdom by the sea that ultimately ends in tender tragedy. Steelwork Park, which is actually the ruins of the old US Steelworks in Chicago, is set right on Lake Michigan and made for the perfect kingdom by the sea. Chicago Vintage Rentals provided the antique table and chairs and the elegant place settings which were integral to our vision. The tablescape was completed with a graceful runner by Silk & Willow and delicate shells and driftwood from Asrai Gardens.

The florals, expertly crafted by Elizabeth Cronin of Asrai Gardens, were an amazing array of blooms many of which were sourced locally. The lush bouquet and centerpiece boasted an amazing architecture as the greenery and flowers delicately cascaded in a purposefully haphazard way – creating stunning artistic movement that mimicked the waves of the sea. Luscious Silk and Willow ribbon was tied around the stems of the bouquet to add even more romantic appeal. Jessica from Boho Ink‘s modern aesthetic merged with classic calligraphy techniques to create this incredible invitation suite. We simply couldn’t stop swooning over her attention to detail in every aspect of the design – from the paper to her intricately constructed words to the overall composition of the each piece – she truly creates works of art. While Edgar Allan Poe is traditionally rather macabre, this poem bears a slight deviation – incorporating unending love in the face of impending doom.

Beach Wedding Inspiration with Sequin Gowns

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Les Amis Photo

Have we ever mentioned how much we love the idea of non-traditional wedding gowns? Because we really, really do. Take this styled shoot from Les Amis Photo, Il Profumo dei Fiori, and Oliveta Design for example — not only is there a stunning white lace wedding gown, but also shown are two sequined gowns that would be perfect for bridesmaids and bride alike. That Tom Ford gown especially has us madly in love!

From the photographers, Les Amis Photo: We wanted to create, in collaboration with Oliveta design, a romantic and twilight style at the same time and provide a setting that recalls a wedding and a gala. The flowers’ bucolic colors, from a wedding inspiration, are in contrast with the elegant and luxurious tones of evening dresses. The pinks and white palettes are therefore in contrast with black and pink sequin evening dresses, with plates and the elegant stationery. The melancholy spirit and the dreamy ocean atmosphere on a windy day are the theme of this shooting in all its phases.

Enchanted Forest Halloween Wedding

Elegant Weddings

Photos by:

Birke Photography

When your wedding date just so happens to be Halloween, you have two options — one, ignore the holiday altogether, or two, embrace it and pull out all the stops. Chelsey and Nathaniel chose option two, fusing Halloween spookiness with an enchanted forest theme for a result that’s both elegant and inspiring. Birke Photography and Valley Flower Company did excellent work here, especially the bride’s lavender rose bouquet!

From the bride, Chelsey: Nathaniel and I met in the 7th grade and have been good friends since spending a whole night talking in the 9th grade. At 24 years old and both in a time of change we decided to move to Mexico together and the adventure continues! The ceremony was held in the Milking Parlor of the Round Barn – a romantic and simple classic vibe, using lavender flowers to incorporate California (where we live), ocean song grey roses with grasses and some darker leaves to accent. The flowers were tied with black velvet.

For the evening reception in the hayloft of the round barn, to feel like you are outside in an enchanted forest we used tree branches, grasses, berries, some dark red roses and pumpkins. I wore my grandmothers pearl necklace as a hairpiece and 4 pins by our 4 grandmothers on my bouquet. The veil was my sister’s that she wore 3 years ago, and I also wore a gold bracelet that I made.
