Wedding Day Bridal Inspiration

Wedding Design

We must admit, we’re positively smitten with the idea behind today’s styled shoot from Sweetlife Photography and Swoon Floral Design. The images capture a bride taking some time for herself on her wedding day to reflect on everything that has led to this moment, writing a love letter to her beloved, and having it all captured on film photography for years to come. Breathtaking doesn’t even begin to cover it.

From the photographer, Jake of Sweetlife Photography: So much anticipation. She’s dreamt of this day since she was a child —- what would it look like? How would it feel? And it has finally arrived. There’s a schedule to keep. Vendors arriving and setting up. Family and friends whirling around to turn her dream into reality. And amidst the hustle and bustle, she stops to savor the moment. She steals away, a few brief moments to herself. She gathers flowers and writes a love note to her groom. These still, quiet moments slow the day down just enough for her to remember all that led her here. Our all-film shoot, “Foraged”, symbolizes this idea of slowing down on a wedding day and remembering to reflect on its significance.

With the Columbia River Gorge near Portland, Oregon as our backdrop, we weaved this idea of reflection and simplicity throughout our styling. Austie Eckley kept the bride’s look natural and organic, and Swoon Floral Design provided a simple green vine, a loosely bound bouquet, and loose floral stems to tell our story of thoughtful foraging. Truvelle provided their “Merly” gown -— the perfect dress to effortlessly catch the wind while balancing uniqueness and style. It features a sweetheart neckline, lace straps, and low lace-up back finished off with a thin grosgrain sash. JES Design Studio provided an earthy and stunning pink opal stone beaded bracelet and earrings to complete our bride’s look.

For our love letter scene, we asked Something Borrowed Portland Vintage Rentals to provide just a few beautiful elements to tell our story of poetic reflection and romance. Their Gerard Wooden Table and natural wood dining chair, vintage inkwell and dip pen, brass candelabras, and kerosene lamp set the stage perfectly. Kelsey Malie Calligraphy provided the hand-lettered love note in white ink set against a lavender watercolor background to compliment our floral color palette. The stunning Brazilian model Tábata Tveten, recently engaged herself at the time of the shoot and no doubt dreaming of her handsome groom-to-be, perfectly embodied the soft, calm, and romantic anticipation we hoped to convey in this shoot.

Glam Winter Bridal Inspiration

Wedding Design

Nikita Lee

We don’t know exactly how, but something about stylish winter wedding shoots just seems to make the harsh cold weather a bit more bearable. That’s definitely the case with this beauty from Nikita Lee, Clara Putlitz From Beyond The Garden Gate, and Allure With Decor, a team who used their gorgeous Pacific Northwest surroundings as a backdrop for some seriously great ideas we can’t wait to share.

From the photographer, Nikita Lee: Inspired by the beautiful woodlands of Oregon and the desire to create a delicate, unique and luxurious display of how rustic and elegant design details can walk hand-in-hand. Each piece and vendor was carefully curated to create this beautiful editorial. I am so grateful to all the talented women who were involved. Designing and photographing this was such a dream!

Romantic Floral Inspiration Shoot

Wedding Design

We may have seen our fair share of bridal sessions here at Ruffled, but whenever there’s a backdrop as pretty as this one, it’s hard not to get excited all over again. While this floral garland is perfect for this bridal shoot, it could also work wonders as a ceremony backdrop on the actual wedding day. Thank you Lindsey Orton Photography and Lizy’s Lillies for your work on this one!

Romantic floral Inspiration Shoot - photo by Lindsey Orton Photography http://ruffledblog.com/romantic-bridal-inspiration-shoot

From the photographer, Lindsey Orton Photography: We really wanted to give brides inspiration on what they could do for a great statement piece or backdrop for a ceremony. They could even use it for a reception or photo booth. We just loved the idea of falling blooms, almost like rain! We wanted it to be very natural, airy, and organic. We tried to keep a soft and feminine color scheme, which is why we chose the soft blush wedding dress.

Austin Styled Bridal Session

Wedding Design

What’s better than a little bridal inspiration with some bohemian flair? We were beyond thrilled to see this lovely styled shoot land in our inbox, especially given its all-star team of vendors — including Lindsey Stump Photography, Southern Social Events, The Quiet Rabbit, and Stems, just to name a few. This is one tablescape we’ll absolutely love for ages!

Austin styled bridal session - photo by Lindsey Stump Photography http://ruffledblog.com/austin-styled-bridal-session

From the photographer, Lindsey Stump: Our tablescape design was inspired by the first colorful blooms of spring, that feeling of nostalgia for being barefoot amongst the wildflowers. With a touch of bohemian whimsy, we incorporated lots of colorful statement pieces from Anthropologie and kept the floral centerpiece wild and organic.

The maidenhair ferns planted in concrete pots add the perfect touch of neutral amongst the otherwise playful setup. Our chandelier installation mixes a monochromatic range of patterns and solids to tie in that carefree, color-centric vibe. Overall, the design focused less on tradition, playing more on the idea of a well-traveled woman with a love for found objects and color.

Garden Party Bridal Shoot

Wedding Design

Erin + Tara Photography know how to turn scenes into beautiful pieces of photographic art, no question about it. When you’ve got a bride donning various gowns from Anna Campbell and decked out in floral design from Prunella, the scenes only get prettier and prettier.

garden party bridal shoot // via ruffledblog.com

The inspiration for our shoot was a romantic, country, garden party wedding. Natural, abundant florals, colour and whimsy against a backdrop of expansive green lawns and beautiful architecture at St Agnes homestead. Space to run free, flowers that are wild and locally gathered and beautiful dresses that float in the breeze.

Bohemian Fall Bridal Session

Wedding Design

It would be an injustice to let autumn come and go without sharing these gorgeous bridal session images, as far as I’m concerned. Alyssia B Photography took the reigns as photographer and Flowers By Adrien did the same with floral design, resulting in a romantic bohemian aesthetic heavy on the purples and pinks and light on fussiness.

Jen Huang Workshop

Wedding Design

A few weeks ago I was invited to speak at the workshop of the one and only Jen Huang here in NYC, where I talked about submitting to blogs and answered other questions and concerns that attendees had about online publication. The two day workshop was jam-packed with precious professional advice and techniques by Jen, each day with a gorgeous shoot styled by Jackie of Merci New York between in-studio lessons. The styled wedding shoot took place at Central Park Zoo, now offering the space as a wedding venue – lucky for you NYC brides! See that stunning Reem Acra number below? It’s part of Reem Acra’s new collection and it’s debuting on Ruffled! Jen’s next workshop is scheduled for July – don’t forget to check out her site for more info!

With the romantic aesthetic of Ruffled Blog in mind, this inspiration shoot was created for Jen Huang Photography’s workshop as a collaboration between the many talented vendors involved. A slight drizzle enhanced the secret garden theme and the beautiful Central Park Zoo provided the perfect hideaway for our beautiful couples Naysa and Whitney and Michelle and Jeffrey. We paired classic table pieces and calligraphy by Paperfinger and draped the tables and chairs with florals by Saipua and cakes by Sugar Flower Cake Shop. The lush, intimate scene was captured not only on film but on canvas by a live painter. The concept and mood was designed by Jackie at Merci New York and all the attendees were able to interact with and learn from Jen Huang on site. In addition to these workshops, Jen will be hosting a couple more this year in NY and CA and more information can be found on her blog.

Jesse and Paul have been together for over a decade but decided to tie knot with a very intimate ceremony. Their engagement was short despite all the years together (just one month to plan everything eek!), so they decided to have a photo session done a week before the wedding. Jesse designed the shoot herself, bringing what she had at home to decorate it. Jesse’s gorgeous dress is by Colette Dinnigan. Shot by the wonderful Sydney photographer Trish from Tea Lily Photography.

1950's Bridal Portrait Bridals

Design Inspiration

This bridal session is extra special. Ellen wanted a bridal session done to honor her mother and grandmother. She sneaked her mom’s wedding dress and veil from the attic, along with her grandmother’s headpiece to wear for the photo session at the same church where her parents got married. She also brought her mother’s bridal portrait and the results are a sweet homage to these great women in her family and uber coolness thanks to Kelly from Kellan Studios.

Casey Brodley, Photographer

I’m not a traditional wedding photographer. My background and training is steeped in photo journalism, so that’s how I approach a wedding. My goal is to document the day, not stage it. I let moments unfold naturally, with minimal prom posing and minimal “say cheese” interference.

As a photo journalist, I come prepared for anything. Every wedding is different. I have witnessed full-grown men weep more times than I can count. I have seen smiles so wide that I’m concerned someone may burst a blood vessel. I have climbed mountains with all my gear. And this one time a sprinkler system was triggered during a ceremony.

As a wedding photographer, I walk into every job with the guarantee that I will witness pure joy. But more importantly, I walk into every job with the probability that my day will end with cake. I like to keep my cake-to-work ratio balanced. For health reasons.
