It won’t come as much of a surprise, but whenever we hear a bride wanted an outdoor wedding with fresh flowers at every turn and a bouquet that “looks like [the bride] just stepped out of the garden,” we get a little extra pep in our step. Bloom & Co. did not disappoint as floral designer for Adriana and Mike’s Canada wedding, while Blush & Bowties helped implement all the little details to make the day perfect for the couple.

Pinch me, because I’m pretty sure this wedding from Rabbit Rabbit and Faye and Renee has me in a dream.

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.

French Countryside Wedding Inspiration in Burgundy

Wedding Design

Romance is certainly in the air and all over the elements with this fine Tara Francis Photography shoot. It was brought to life via Sylvie Gil Workshops and knowing what kind of company you’re in with Sylvie’s workshops, you know that you’ll be photographing some amazing subjects. As if this Burgundy château wasn’t jaw-droppingly beautiful enough, Alison Events turned it into this elite wedding spot that we know we would get hitched at in a heartbeat. Holly Flora pulled the countryside look from the outside in with those snaking vines in the chapel and the wild, red, and leafy centerpieces for the tablescape. Everything is just too dreamy and French to handle in this shoot!

French destination weddings - photo by Tara Francis Photography http://ruffledblog.com/french-countryside-wedding-inspiration-in-burgundy

From the photographer, Tara Francis Photography: This styled shoot at Sylvie Gil’s workshop was set at a beautiful 18th century chateau in the heart of Burgundy, France’s countryside. The dress was a jaw dropping Vera Wang wedding dress from her 2017 collection. The bridal boudoir was in a room that was wall to wall white walls with a classic white bed. I loved the veil draped over the bride’s face. The gorgeous floral arrangements in a Dutch Master style were done by Holly and Becky from Holly Flora. That gorgeous ring you see in the bridal boudoir is from Trumpet and Horn.

Invitations including the etched tortoise shell place cards were done by Yonder Design. The seating chart was laid out on a bed of moss on an antique table. I fell in love with the tablecloth; it was a hand dyed marble cloth custom made for the shoot by La Tavola. The ceremony was in a little chapel which sat right behind the Chateau. The chapel had lots of flowers and greenery designed again by Holly Flora.

Cupid’s Arrow Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Jenna Henderson

Here’s a shoot featuring a lovely marriage between modern and industrial that we just can’t get enough of today. These colors have us all googly-eyed and feeling hopelessly romantic, while Jenna Henderson‘s chronicling of the day via photographs have us falling hard for this chic juxtaposition. Kennedy Occasions‘s lush floral arrangements do this shoot so much justice and they were the perfect, bright pop of pinks to accompany such a fun styled shoot.

valentine's day inspiration - photo by Jenna Henderson http://ruffledblog.com/cupids-arrow-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer and shoot designer, Jenna Henderson: We drew our inspiration from Cupid’s arrow, finding fun ways to sneak the arrow into our decor including an arrow through the bouquet, cake, and on the paper goods. We also loved the romance of the lush florals and rich colors, and to contrast the softness, we selected an urban industrial location and a chic Edison bulb lighting installment. The result is a romantic, intimate wedding full of industrial chic touches.

With such a fun lighting installment overhead, we totally welcome contrasting styles like this. Finding an industrial space for your wedding venue doesn’t mean that you have to go the modern route when it comes to style and design. Stick to your guns if you want to dress a contemporary space in sumptuous linens, dreamy centerpieces, and romantic elements. The huge plus about venues like this are that they tend to carry a very neutral color palette, so design it to your heart’s content.

Modern Metallic Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

This wedding editorial by Kate Touzel Photography has fab written all over it. Designed by Forever & a Day Events and Design and floral creations by Damsel Floral Co, this shoot blended classic and bohemian elements with modern, geometric twists. Taking a further look at the beautiful photos, just the simple addition of muted tones like mauve and burgundy add in a darling dash of vintage. It’s incredible how such different styles blended so well!

From the event designer, Forever & a Day Events and Design: I was inspired by the classic bride, who captures a timeless aesthetic, and by the bohemian bride, who captures a whimsical aesthetic with touches of structure. I fell in love with the peacock accent color and added the mauve and burgundy to really make it pop!

Ethereal Atlanta Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Poring through some gorgeous images on film is a great way to fill our day, and this styled shoot from Unique2Chic Photography, Honeybee Events, and Gold and Bloom does just the trick. An utterly romantic wedding gown from BHLDN’s spring 2016 line set the tone for the day, which was filled to the brim with floral decor in shades of red and white and one of the must stunning Southern venues we’ve ever seen.

ethereal Atlanta wedding inspiration - photo by Unique2Chic Photography http://ruffledblog.com/ethereal-atlanta-wedding-inspiration

From the event designer and photographer, Honeybee Events and Unique2Chic Photography: Today, we’re taking you to The Swan House in Atlanta, Georgia, with natural wedding inspiration, organic details and a flowy wedding gown. It was a typical spring afternoon in Atlanta, and we arrived at the swan house just as a storm was rolling in. It rained for about 10 minutes, and then there was a beautiful sunset over the marsh. The Swan house is a beautiful location for Atlanta wedding photos including the driveway in front of the mansion, front gate vintage cars, and more. BHLDN let us use one of their spring 2016 wedding dresses and it basically set the tone for the shoot.

Scarborough Fair Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

We just love the inspiration behind today’s shoot oh-so-much. Inspired by the herbs listed in Simon & Garfunkel’s “Scarborough Fair,” the talented team of White Rabbit Studios, Kathleen Bernal Events, and Old Frond set to work on a styled shoot incorporating these fragrant green bits. The result? Total romantic bliss.

Scarborough Fair wedding inspiration - photo by White Rabbit Studios http://ruffledblog.com/scarborough-fair-wedding-inspiration

From the event designer, Kathleen Bernal Events: This wedding inspired styled shoot, entitled “fair and light,” was designed and planned by Kathleen Bernal Events and photographed perfectly by Ashley Vaughn, with White Rabbit Studios. The inspirations for this shoot were the herbs, parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme, as listed in the Simon and Garfunkel song, “Scarborough Fair.” Taking us back to the Medieval times, these particular herbs were often used in wedding bouquets, as symbols of love and prosperity, and ways to ward off bitter and sad feelings. Not only are their scents heavenly, but they are also long-lasting. Mixing these age-old traditions with modern foliage created a stunning set of florals for the bouquet and table decorations. Styled in a magical woodsy area, with traces of a snowy day still remaining, we could not have asked for a more romantic setting.

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!

berry toned wedding at Terrain - photo by Sweet Root Village http://ruffledblog.com/berry-toned-wedding-at-terrain

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.

Collaborative Pennsylvania Farm Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Photos by:

Justin Tearney

When bride and groom Heather and Scott started to take on endless DIY projects for their wedding day, they had no shortage of friends and family willing to lend a hand and help tackle the decor. The result is a day at Fox Hill Farm that’s a true collaborative effort, with beautiful thoughtful details everywhere you turn and a wedding photographed by Justin Tearney that will be remembered for years and years to come.

collaborative Pennsylvania farm wedding - photo by Justin Tearney http://ruffledblog.com/collaborative-pennsylvania-farm-wedding

From the bride, Heather: It was really important to us that our celebration reflected and honored our individuals stories and our history together. My grandmother was an artist and her hand painted silk scarves made beautiful runners for the dessert tables, cocktail tables and more. I even used one of her unpainted scarves as a sash. Scott, a photographer, brought his father’s 4×5 camera to be used in photographs. We had recently moved back North after living in Nashville for eight years, so we went with a Southern inspired menu including chicken and waffles, Mac and cheese, hush puppies and pork belly sliders. Scott’s father is known in our families for his pies, and we were excited to have him supplement the amazing desserts made by Allie’s Cupcakery and Cafe with some of our favorite pies he makes.

My father is a woodworker and designer and crafted an amazing bar using antique doors, live edge details, and a copper top. It fit in so perfectly at the venue in their Civil War era barn and existing use of antique doors that it ended up staying for use by future couples. In addition he made a second bar section to hide the kegs, and two beautiful live edge tables, one for the photo booth and one for refreshments and programs at the entrance to the ceremony. He also made the wooden welcome sign Heather wrote on to mark the entrance of the venue.

One of our favorite parts of the whole experience was how collaborative it was. Perhaps our friends and families thought we were a little wacky for how many DIY projects we took on, but if they did they never let on, and pitched in enthusiastically to help us in any way they could. Heather and her sisters all worked together to dip dye over 100 napkins. Scott’s sister and her husband surprised us with an incredible performance of Closer to You by Brandi Carlile during the reception. Heather’s mother was the master organizer which is perhaps the most important part when you are planning a completely DIY wedding. The whole event ended up going off without a hitch and we have no doubt it is because of all of the help we had from family and friends in so many more ways than we could ever list here.

Romantic Birmingham Villa Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by Heart

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

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

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

Romantic Winter Wedding at The Cooper Estate

Romantic Weddings

This romantic wedding captured by Miranda Hattie Photography was heavily influenced by the bride and groom’s Cuban backgrounds. An intimate setting was essential to Yanin and Alex’s big day. The gorgeous florals by Ever After Floral Design were the perfect touch with pops of marsala scattered throughout the day. Surrounded by Palm Trees and loved ones, these photos make you want to hop on a plane Florida-bound!

From the bride, Yanin: I had always envisioned our wedding to be in a place very intimate where everyone can feel the love that Alex and I feel for each other. Alex’s oldest brother is a minister and we both knew we wanted him to marry us. I think that was very special and made the wedding even more intimate and personal. I wanted a wedding that was elegant, organic and vintage. I knew I wanted a fall wedding because we met during the same time we had the wedding 4 years ago and because it is our favorite season. I knew I wanted something outdoors. I also love antiques. My mom and stepdad collect antiques and have started a small antique company. I share the same love for beautiful antique pieces and I knew I wanted that at our wedding. I also wanted to show Alex’s personality in our wedding and our Cuban heritage so I knew I wanted a Cuban cigar roller. Lastly, I knew I wanted one heck of a party and I wanted the dance floor to never be empty. I love to have fun and dance and I wanted people to feel that energy all night long. I think our wedding really encompassed both of our personalities.

My mom and stepdad are huge antique collectors and I knew I wanted to use some of their items for our wedding. It was also a great way to showcase the items they have for rent in their company. I used a French door as the seating chart. I did the writing for the seating chart, which took me longer than I expected. I am a perfectionist and kept erasing and then doing it all over again. The mirror is also an antique that my mom has and I used it as the menu, which I also wrote on. Our florist added beautiful berries to our seating chart and menu. It was a really nice touch. My jewelry for the day of the wedding my mom and I bought from an antique store in Miami. The earrings and the bracelet are one of a kind pieces.

I also wanted to show our Cuban background as both of our parents are from Cuba, so we had a cigar roller, a coffee bar and a percussionist. The cigar roller and coffee bar were a surprise for Alex from his parents. He loves smoking cigars and I thought this would be a great treat for him. He also loves espressos hence the coffee bar, which the servers did pass around Cuban coffee to guests. I loved our DJ from the moment we met him but I knew I wanted a little more when the music was playing. When looking for someone to play drums our DJ let us know he had a percussionist to play the drums, which brought the music and party to another level. I have a lot of favorite moments. Getting ready for the wedding with my mother and my bridesmaids was amazing. Walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing Alex standing there waiting for me next to my favorite girls and his groomsmen. I loved the fact that my brother, who is autistic, was able to be there too. He never goes to weddings but I knew my wedding would be incomplete without him. Seeing him there made my heart full. I loved our first dance and dancing with my father. I loved seeing my mom dancing to “Dancing Queen”. I loved seeing Alex so happy and full of life. I loved seeing everyone I love there and having a good time. Our wedding day was basically my favorite moment.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? One piece of advice to give all brides is enjoy it to the fullest! Do not stress about a magical day. I enjoyed it from getting ready with my mom and bridesmaids to the end of the wedding. Dance even if you sweat so much you look like a mess. I enjoyed it and danced so much, I ripped my dress. That’s how all weddings should end!

Whimsical Retro Inspired Wedding

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Vanessa Velez

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

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

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

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

Parisian Twilight Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Navy blue and gold make a timeless combo, and they work brilliantly together in this styled shoot from Kelli Boyd Photography, Grace Graffiti, and The Vine. This talented team of vendors used a real life couple who recently got engaged in France, so a theme of Parisian Twilight fit the bill wonderfully! Let’s jump right on in:

From the event designer, Grace Graffiti: With such a talented group of vendors, we thought it would be best to let each vendor have full creative control of their area of expertise. We wanted to showcase each other’s strengths and how amazing a wedding can look when your have a team of vendors that work well together. Our model couple just recently were engaged in Paris, France, so the theme of a Parisian Wedding fit perfectly. From the chandelier hanging from the trees to the sabering of sparkling wine to the floral macaron wedding cake, our couple were able to reminisce their engagement in the international city of love.

Flora and Fauna Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Flora and fauna — what better inspiration for a beautiful outdoor celebration? Today’s styled shoot from the talented team of Michelle Chiu Photography, Darling Event & Co., and Martha Claire Floral brings together a wedding day vignette inspired by antique botany and zoology illustrations, which you can see right away in the invitation suite. Add in some stunning copper elements, and you’ve got a positively enviable look!

flora and fauna wedding inspiration - photo by Michelle Chiu Photography http://ruffledblog.com/flora-and-fauna-wedding-inspiration

From the event designer, Tara of Darling Event & Co.: Our main inspiration stemmed from antique botany and zoology illustrations. These detailed, accurate, hand-crafted drawings and paintings are nods to all that weddings represent: a focus on deep realities and a quest for truth, all the while showcasing something incredibly gorgeous. These antique illustrations are often completed in jewel tones – vibrant and rich, without ever feeling too bold. Using this same palette, Martha Claire Floral brought in a variety of large blooms with lots of textures and greenery, creating that same mood. Her whimsical combination of oversized ferns with dahlias and garden roses almost demands a scientific examination. The bride’s simple hair bouquet is reminiscent of a day spent outside, just soaking up all of nature’s bounty.

Her color palette was mimicked and highlighted by BorrowedBlu with all the tabletop goods. Their team also brought in another element from the natural world: copper. All the metal accents featured are copper – from the modern terrariums from Anthropologie to the oversized version of these terrariums made to be the ceremony ‘arch’ installation (designed and built by Tara at Darling Event & Co). With details from calligrapher Leah Moss, an equally beautiful and delicious dessert spread from Sweet & Saucy Shop, a gown from Watters Wtoo, and beauty done by Nicol Artistry Makeup & Hair, this day truly represented all that’s wonderful about Flora & Fauna.

It’s an honor to have worked with such a talented team, some of whom I met as fellow attendees at Angel Swanson’s inaugural Love & Splendor workshops, and others through the power of this incredible industry. The connections of a solid vendor team make all the difference, even for a stylized shoot, but especially for a bride preparing for her big day.

Romantic Elegance at Spadina Museum

Wedding Design

I love seeing wedding shoots inspired by classic artists, and this one from the incredible team of Purple Tree Photography, Affairy Events, and Caprice Design & Decor is no exception. Here, the team was inspired by a mixture of Gustav Klimt’s art and romantic perfume ads, which came together beautifully for a romantic feel with a bit of eclecticism mixed in for good measure.

romantic elegance at Spadina Museum - photo by Purple Tree Photography http://ruffledblog.com/romantic-elegance-at-spadina-museum

From the event designer, Ksenia of Affairy Events: We produced this styled shoot with a great team of vendors in Toronto in the summer. We were inspired by perfume ads, different scents and personalities of women and Gustav Klimt. So you will see there are different shades of pink, burgundy and a bit of blue and gold that were used in the shoot.

Today’s wedding from Olive Photography, Caprice Design and Decor, and Behind the I Do is just the cutest, no doubt about it. Isabella and Lukas married with a “woodland glam” theme, and they found the ideal venue to showcase their vision and fuse together their love of the woods and art. The end result is a wedding that’s a dream for all you fall and winter wedding couples!

From the bride, Isabella: Lukas laughs when I talk about the theme… “woodland glam” (almost as hard as he laughed when I told him that our Christmas decor would be “woodland Christmas”). We wanted to showcase our love of the outdoors and of art. We had visited the McMichael together many times in elementary and high school, we thought it would only be right to go back there! We hoped that all the touches and details would be meaningful to us as a couple, while also honouring our families and different cultures. We also wanted to capture moments from our long history together as a couple. Our music came from our high school mixtapes for each other and decor incorporated the many photos from our 9 year relationship.

Lukas’ favorite moment: Watching Isabella walk down the aisle with her dad, looking so beautiful and elegant was simply breathtaking. And in classic Bella style, she tripped on the front of her wedding gown. In a cute little huff of frustration and embarrassment she hiked up her dress and marched down the rest of the aisle. Our guests all let out a laugh but if you looked towards me you would see a smile from ear to ear. It was a perfect display of the clumsy yet perfect bride I would marry minutes later. An unplanned and completely accidental moment reminded me of why I fell in love with her.

Isabella’s favorite moment: There are many moments that I will always remember. But my standout moment happened the second we walked out of the ceremony space. The gravity of the ceremony finally hit me and a kiss from my groom brought me to tears. Lukas will attest to the fact that I emote as much as rocks do. But at this moment my heart was full. We had the back of the gallery space to ourselves as the wedding party and parents made it down. Seeing our most beloved friends and family cheering and crying was so special. We got to hug each person and revel in the moment. Not only did I feel so much love for Lukas, but I felt the love from our family and friends.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Weddings are filled with so much emotion and meaning. Knowing that though, it will never be drama free no matter how hard you try! Despite it all though, those special moments that come from the day make it completely worth it. Keep your sanity by doing everything very early! Complete tasks when you feel it is “too early”… because no matter what it isn’t. Finally we learned the wedding is about more than the couple. Something we commented on repeatedly throughout the day was how lucky we were to have our family and friends in our lives. We hope that your day will be filled with the most love your friends and family could possibly give.
