Santa Barbara Estate Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Anna Delores

So, we just about lost it when we saw this bride’s incredible floral patterned wedding gown by Olvi’s. Not only does it fit Ann like a glove, but the pops of color are the perfect look for spring and put such a smile on our faces. Thank you to Anna Delores and Creations by Nupur for your work on this beautiful day!

From the bride, Ann: We were hoping to have a wedding using eclectic travel vernacular paired with a modern sensibility. Both my husband and I are drawn to modern aesthetics, but we wanted to express a timelessness through our love of travel. Our location was very modern, and our graphics melded modern herring bone patterns with old-style maps, and our flowers took on a more lush, eclectic look through traditional centerpieces paired with modern succulents. Because our guests were also traveling for the wedding, we wanted them to feel like they were joining us on a tropical weekend getaway. Our favorite weddings have been weekend-long events where guests meet and become friends over their shared experience, so we launched the party with a beach BBQ on Friday, wedding festivities and hotel poolside bonding on Saturday, and a Sunday farewell brunch. When it came to Sunday’s brunch, we repeatedly tried to introduce various friends and family members, whom already got to know each other quite well by weekend’s end – which we loved!

Industrial Wedding at a Metalworking Studio

Modern Weddings

We love that today’s couple knew their venue, Gutierrez Studios, would be the perfect fit for their wedding day because it captured both of their spirits individually — analytic industrialism for the groom, and a blank creative canvas for the bride. Lindsay Hite of READYLUCK and The Vanlandingham Design Studio were the chosen pros to be by their side for the big day, making their vision come to reality with startling clarity and a clear focus on modern design in an industrial setting.

From the bride, Brittany: Greg and I have known each other since elementary school and are living proof that opposites attract. We really wanted a day that would celebrate how much we love one another and how fortunate we are to have so many amazing family and friends. It is so rare and special to have all of the people you love together in one place at the same time. We instantly fell in love with Gutierrez Studios, a working metal studio in Baltimore’s Clipper Mill. The amazing artistry and historic industrial setting seemed like the perfect allegory for Greg’s analytical personality and my creative spirit. The studio is not a traditional event space and we were so thankful to work with Drew at The Vanlandingham Design Studio. He came highly recommended and was without a doubt crucial to making our wedding dream a reality. He really got to know us and translated our personalities along with our rustic and industrial vision into the most meaningful and magical day we could dream of. We worked with fantastic professionals throughout the entire process and with Drew by our side, we didn’t have to worry about a single thing.

Greg gave me a beautiful bracelet along with sweet and silly card. When I opened the card there was also a photo of us taken at our senior prom. The edges were tattered and the photo image was almost peeling away from the plastic backing. I instantly recognized the image and soon realized that he had been carrying this photo in his wallet every day for the past 11 years. Thinking about all of the amazing moments we had shared and all of the memories we still have to make together was definitely one of the most memorable parts of the day.

My dress included a patch sewn into the lining that was made from pieces of family members clothing including my mother’s wedding dress, Greg’s aunt, grandmother, and mother’s wedding dresses, my grandmother’s painting smock, and my grandfather’s apron. It was a special way to feel connected to all of our loved ones. We were very excited to give Daruma Dolls as favors to all of our guests. A daruma doll is a traditional Japanese doll seen as a symbol of perseverance and good luck. When someone receives a daruma doll it has two blank eyes. The recipient fills in one eye upon setting a goal or making a wish, then the other eye once it is fulfilled. Greg’s Bachan, Japanese grandmother, passed down the tradition to her family and we wanted to share it with all of our guests as a special token of thanks and good fortune. We hope all of their wishes come true!

Waterside Destination Wedding in Bali

Garden Weddings

Photos by:

Lara Hotz

Destination weddings are always a welcome treat in our world, and Ness and Roger’s shindig in Bali, Indonesia is definitely the sight for sore eyes. The couple brought along Lara Hotz behind the camera and used Global Weddings to coordinate their unforgettable wedding event, which included a ceremony be the ocean and a poolside reception with paper lanterns aplenty. How could we not fall in love?

From the bride, Ness: The overall style and concept was a mix of colonial, natural, textured and classic. I feel this came through once it was all brought together on the day. When it came to picking a venue, being near the ocean was an important component and Semara Luxury Villas in Uluwatu delivered on this without a doubt! In addition to being near ocean, having lots of greenery and being outdoors was also key. The base line colours were all very neutral with colour accents brought through the flowers.

Bouquet recipe: Like many brides I first headed to Pinterest, gathering pictures of my most favorite floral designs. I gave these pictures to Global Wedding and they coordinated with our florist to create my bouquet, table centerpieces and flower arch. The pictures I gathered were to be used as a guide as I just wanted to use flowers that were locally available. The florist did a great job using a mix of hydrangeas, white chine lotus, dendrobium orchids, calla lilies, tuberoses bloom, foliage, silver suede and pale pink baby roses for my bouquet, and white china lotus, dendrobium orchids, phaleonopsis orchid, calla lilles, tuberoses bloom and foliage for the centerpieces. Finally we had green hydrangea’s used amongst the candles in the swimming pool.

I always say less is more, so we kept it pretty simple. Lots of candles and flowers which are two things I adore were throughout the venue. Simple lanterns framed the reception and for our ceremony we had a beautiful flower arch. Given how beautiful the location was we really didn’t have to do much. Colour wise we kept everything well balanced with lots of natural tones with hints of colour but nothing too dominate throughout, I feel this created a nice flow and energy.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? 1) Invest in a photographer. I understand that the costs of weddings are incredibly high these days. But one thing to not skimp on is the person that documents that day for you. Roger and I were privileged enough to have Lara Hotz document our day and I can honestly say it was absolutely worth the investment. Lara is magnificent and our photographs completely and utterly capture our perfect day. 2) These days everyone has access to email or is on social media. As such, we decided to save on costs and be eco-friendly by sending out save the dates and all of our wedding invitations via email using Mail Chimp. We also created a website using Wedding JoJo. They offer great website templates that you can easily tailor to suit your needs. 3) It’s your day so don’t get overwhelmed by it all. Do what you want to do and don’t let traditional wedding concepts dictate the style of your wedding day.

Virginia Boathouse Wedding

Vintage Weddings

If you’re anything like me, you’re always up for a little wedding inspiration with a vintage twist. That’s exactly what we got in the form of today’s wedding from Dixie Pixel Photography and Vogue Flowers, who both worked wonders on Joanna and Otto’s wedding day at a Virginia boathouse (such a great idea for a wedding venue!). Let’s dive right into the goodness, yes?

Virginia boathouse wedding - photo by Dixie Pixel Photography http://ruffledblog.com/virginia-boathouse-wedding

From the bride, Joanna: In the planning process, we envisioned a 1930s Hampton(ish) garden party. Flowers and gold were two of the bigger elements. The bigger items that were DIY were the invitations (my personal fave), faux mercury glass for the votives and vases, the table numbers which were actually drink names of the era, the Mr. & Mrs. signs on the chairs at the sweetheart table and the guest book which were Replica vintage postcards that we’ll keep in a box to read til our first anniversary.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Elope if you want to keep your sanity! Hahaha… JK. Don’t underestimate the undertaking a wedding is. Try to stay as organized as possible to help minimize your stress level. I created an email account that my fiancé and I could go to access, so everything was in one place. Also, there are apps you can use to keep track of vendors, guests, budget etc. if you’d rather not have a paper binder. I personally like “IDoo” app the best (for iPhone).
