Botanical Baby Shower with Rose Gold

Design Inspiration

Photos by:

LoveHer Photography

Yes way, rosé! This baby shower dreamed and designed by Dream a Little Dream Events, I Heart Table Art and The Black Posy is totally unprecedented and utterly femme. “In Full Bloom” was the mood of the day, and botanical elements in blush, peach, rose gold and copper were dispersed throughout this greenhouse in all the right places. This is our first baby shower on Ruffled, and we’re pretty excited about it! We can’t get enough of the rose gold details and how this setting would look equally beautiful for a wedding. All captured by LoveHer Photography.

Rich Southern Jewels Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

We’re not kidding when we say this one is a gem – even the bride and groom look like living jewels! With flashes of copper amidst the ornamental tablescape and dessert station designed by eMBee event design, the ruby, emerald and sapphire palette becomes utterly symphonic. It’s hard to miss the creative blend of transitioning lines from the sharp color-blocked frames in the paper goods to the soft velvet overlay of the head table to the wavy strokes that create a marbling effect across the cake. Lindsey LaRue Photography even captures the flower-filled terrariums from Wildflower Fare. All in all, this shoot is sublime to the core – told you we weren’t kidding!

DIY Copper Leaves Cake Topper

Opal+Rose Photo

We’re huge fans of today’s DIY project, not only because we’re rose gold and copper-biased, but it can also be done fairly quickly and customized to whatever size you’d like to use. We chose to create a delicate cake topper, but you can certainly recreate the tutorial on a bigger scale to make a garland or a larger wreath to display at your reception (or even in your home). Thank you to Opal+Rose Photo for capturing the step-by-step images and end result!

Italian Winery Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

To say the least about this Christa Taylor Photography wedding inspiration shoot, it is stunning. It’s just in time for the change of the season and we’re completely enamored by all of the colors and the ever-dreamy vineyard setting. CK Weddings and Events enlisted a real engaged couple as their models (an idea we always love) and dressed them up finely to suit the chic, provincial vibe and the soft colors found in the tablescapes and the floral design by Bloomsberry. A personal fave of this shoot are the colors: finely mimicking that always-cool change from the bright heyday of summer to the warmth of fall.

From the photographer, Christa Taylor Photography: It only took one visit to Maysara Winery for it to earn a spot on our favorite venues list. From the gorgeous stone walls, surrounding hills, and incredible live wood architecture, this winery perfectly captures majestic Pacific Northwest beauty.

To play off the stunning and romantic setting, we pulled in fresh copper touches which balances so well with the blush, grays, and soft greenery. During the early spring the winery is drenched in soft sunlight and sets a natural tone for these delicate colors, rich textures, and organic elements. Since Maysara Winery is a beautiful example of a family run and local business, keeping all the elements of the shoot local was a passion. The wedding dress was designed and made by the talented Nature of Isa, the gorgeous jewelry created by VK Designs, and the modern suiting provided by Este’s Menswear. Even the darling couple are local and engaged to be married later this summer!

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?

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.

Country Mountain Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Rugged and dainty is what we’d say if you asked us how to describe this beautiful Marcucci Photography wedding inspiration shoot. The mountains and the countryside are a wonder all on their own, and this shoot pulled together by Love by Lynzie Events centered around this peaceful landscape dazzled us even more. Flower 597 focused on the abundance of greenery in these parts and made the most impressive tablescape garland and bridal bouquet sweetly dotted with white fleurs. We can’t get enough of it or anything else in these shots!

From the event designer, Love by Lynzie Events: Our shoot is inspired by the wonder and rustic feel of being in the country and the mountains but with a modern twist. We brought together materials that are natural but not always associated with each other. With a colour palette of forest green, copper, marble, and wood, we sought out to bring warmth and a sense of edge to the beautiful all white barn. Nagham from Love by Lynzie created marbled paper for all the stationary and place cards with calligraphy by Cat’s Lettering. The luscious garland by Flower 597 that ran down the centre of the tablescape was embellished with copper painted fruit.

Our bride wore a sexy vintage inspired Anais Anette gown with gorgeous boho jewels from Spark and Thistle. We even had some very cute ponies come on set. Our loved putting together this shoot and really wanted to show brides how to mix the whimsy of an all white barn in the countryside with a little edgy trend.

Industrial Greenhouse Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Milton Photography

We love when modern and vintage cross paths. Contrasting ideas always make such cool, funky, and lively shoots and this one snapped by Milton Photography is no different! Kismet & Clover brought together these ideas through the look and feel of antiquated romance meets urban styling. To keep the lines minimal but to also add more greenery for the greenhouse feel, Chickweed Cottage brought in cool potted greens and succulents, which always modernize a space without going overboard. And it must be mentioned: any time copper is used, we always have to take a second and third look.

copper wedding ideas - photo by Milton Photography http://ruffledblog.com/industrial-greenhouse-wedding-ideas

From the event designer, Kismet & Clover: The inspiration for this wedding shoot came from wanting to draw upon the romantic feel of a greenhouse while balancing it with the urban feel of an industrial interior. We love the look of an old farmhouse potting shed, but wanted to modernize it by softening the rustic with clean modern lines, copper, metallic undertones, and soft textures.

Peach and Copper Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

A peach wedding dress, be still our hearts! This shoot by Mikaela Marie Photography was just thoroughly decked out in the softest and dreamiest shade of peach and creatively, Lovely and Bubbly Events thought to pair it with an equally-beautiful shade of light blue. The two colors together are so harmonious for the eyes! Just when we thought that the color coordinating was done, copper–the ever-growing metallic color that we certainly cannot get enough of–was tossed in places as seen at the sweetheart table and even as tiny flecks on the wedding cake. Rounding off the fun and flirty inspiration were the peachy florals that So Lovely Weddings and Blooms provided for the shoot. There was a generous array of green foliage for the bouquet and the centerpieces, with stems of pretty peach peonies and garden roses peppered in here and there. We’re loving how fresh this wedding inspiration looks!

peach wedding dresses - photo by Mikaela Marie Photography http://ruffledblog.com/peach-and-copper-wedding-inspiration

From the event designer, Alyssa Gabel of Lovely and Bubbly Events: The design for this shoot really stemmed from the idea of a peach wedding dress. We love the different colored wedding gown trend, but we decided to take it a step further with a non-traditional color while keeping the season of summer in mind. That peachy and copper feel was incorporated all throughout the shoot in the paper products, the peach tree place card wall, and peachy popsicles. We also loved the idea of mixing rustic and industrial design elements. The rustic elements like our antique white dining table and white barn venue mixed with the modern industrial copper chairs made this editorial really stand out. This idea of mixing styles shows how a couple with two different tastes can incorporate both of their personalities in their wedding design.

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.

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!

Handcrafted Orchard Ranch Wedding

DIY Weddings

Photos by:

Gantes.Co

If you’re marrying someone whose family owns a ranch like this in California, it’s absolutely a no-brainer that you’re going to get married on this beautiful spot of land. I was definitely floored to see all of the lovely copper and indigo details in this wedding shot by Gantes.Co, especially that ceremony setup with that gorgeous arbor styled by Sitting In A Tree and covered in blooms by Sweet Memories Flowers. From Ring to Reception definitely pulled out all of the stops and Molly and Brennen’s big day looks so magical. Still swooning over those cotton field shots.

Handcrafted Orchard Ranch Wedding - photo by Gantes.Co http://ruffledblog.com/handcrafted-orchard-ranch-wedding

From the bride, Molly: Brennen and I are both pretty laid back and knew that all we wanted was a space that was welcoming and felt like us, so it only felt natural to get married at his family’s walnut orchard. I have always had a thing for the outdoors and muted natural tones, so I wanted to be sure that it had a natural feel. We also wanted a simple and sleek aesthetic with clean lines but still wanted to play up our laid back personalities with the bohemian element to make it less formal and stuffy. So we went with a natural bohemian modern vibe.

Copper + Fruit Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

These days, copper is one of those accents we just can’t resist. Pair it up with eucalyptus and then add one hands-down show-stopping gown from Hayley Paige, and goodness gracious we’re in love. Thank you to Lauren Elisabeth Events for dreaming up this inspiring scene, Giving Tree Photography for capturing it all on camera, and The Sodus Blossom for your beautiful floral arrangements!

Copper Fruit Wedding Inspiration - photo by Giving Tree Photography http://ruffledblog.com/copper-fruit-wedding-inspiration

From the event designer, Lauren Elisabeth Events: We wanted a very earthy and chic feel for our styled shoot with a lot of blues and greenery. We wanted to incorporated copper touches and fell in love with the idea of spray painting real fruit for our centerpiece, place cards, table number, and to include in the bouquet and on the cake. I spray painted the fresh fruit 2 days prior to the shoot – pineapple, pears and grapes – and used a metallic copper spray paint. Once everything was dry, I gently placed them back into the refrigerator and they kept very nicely. We absolutely loved how the fruit turned out and the statement it makes in the pictures.

Indigo and Copper Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Copper is a metal that has been making waves lately in the wedding industry and it’s no surprise. Whether you have an understated color palette and you’re looking for some unique glimmer, or you have an array of colors and you’re looking for that special something to round it off, copper is your best bet. In their collaboration, Shelley Elena Photography and Karis Crawford drew inspiration from natural elements and thought that the deep, moody indigo would pair so nicely with copper’s vibrance. Of course, they were right! It seems to be a feat to create floral pieces that stand out when you have two colors vying for the spotlight. Remi + Gold definitely came through with this creation and what I love the most about it are the delightfully golden ranunculus blooms and those scarlet garden roses. Just beautiful!

indigo and copper wedding inspiration - photo by Shelley Elena Photography http://ruffledblog.com/indigo-and-copper-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Shelley Elena Photography: Karis Crawford and I dreamed up a shoot that would combine our love of modern and organic elements with the vibrant colors we love. Austin is filled with incredibly talented artists, making it easy to pull together a team that executed our vision beautifully. We loved the cohesion of indigo and saffron with wood and copper, and felt that it represented a unique combination of colors and textures that would stand out in a wedding world of pastels. We both find inspiration in natural elements, but wanted to bring those indoors to a more modern setting. One Eleven East, just outside of Austin, just opened and is the perfect minimalist backdrop to any artist’s vision. Our couple, Katie & Mike, got married in Yosemite and are majorly in love, even re-sharing their sweet vows with each other while we shot, making the entire team a little misty eyed.

Botanical Australian Barn Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Lara Hotz

Just one glimpse of this Lara Hotz wedding and I was immediately floored. With the romantic styling of She Designs at Tocal Homestead paired with how lovely Cindy and Robert look together, this wedding blew me away. The venue is the epitome of a beautiful Australian farm, and Cindy and Robert chose to play upon its strengths by incorporating lush greenery and ivory-colored blooms around the ceremony area and in the reception barn. The addition of copper laced into their table centerpieces was just brilliant. See for yourself how everything came together to be such a romantic setting.

botanical Australian barn wedding - photo by Lara Hotz Photography http://ruffledblog.com/botanical-australian-barn-wedding

From the bride, Cindy: As the reception was in a barn, we loved the natural wood structure of the barn and wanted the décor to reflect the natural materials of the venue. We also wanted the décor to have a wonderfully lush greenery feel to it so that it would feel like there was an element of the outside inside. The beautiful grounds of Tocal Homestead was also an inspiration. It was so difficult to pick any specific theme. We wanted it to be beautifully green and being held in a barn, it was natural that the theme would lean towards a rustic barn theme. We also had a “tiki” bar area at the heritage barn site for the guests to have some nibbles and drinks in between the ceremony and entering the reception barn. The tiki bar was a nod to our Hawaii engagement and we had Kona beers which we loved when visiting the Kona Brewing Company on Big Island (which only arrived into Australia the day before the wedding!) in our “beer bath”. The bar was also littered with fresh mint, lemons, limes and artichokes for a farmers markets feel.

Lavender and Copper Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Today’s styled shoot sprouted from a very distinct focal point: the wedding invitation suite. The mix of copper and lavender led the team of Emily Katharine Photography, Tickled Pink Brides, and Arrangements Floral Studio to dream up a romantic scene featuring bohemian details, geometric accents, and beautiful floating centerpieces that have us totally awestruck. What’s not to love?

lavender and copper wedding inspiration - photo by Emily Katharine Photography http://ruffledblog.com/lavender-and-copper-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Emily Katharine Photography: Many people often overlook the importance of the invitation suite. However, I think it is one of the most important parts of your wedding design. It sets the tone for your day. Not only does it provide your guests with useful information, it gives them direction about the vibe and feel of your wedding. For this session, the inspiration sprouted from a modern invitation suite from Wedding Paper Divas, and Kristi from Tickled Pink Brides made this vision come to life. The lavender invitation suite had copper foil geometric patterns that found their way into many details throughout the day. The pearlescent envelopes shone even more with Emily Grace Design’s calligraphy and vintage stamps from Treasure Fox.

Our bride, Aubree wore a stunning Hayley Paige gown from Calvet Couture. Complete with a tulle skirt and ornate beaded lace, it was truly remarkable. Her look was complete with soft, elegant makeup and a fabulous textured fishtail braid done by Brie & Brie. Her groom, Thomas (who also doubles as my second shooter – a jack of all trades!) wore a navy suit from Pronto Uomo and a bowtie with some fun purple accents. The ceremony took place inside the old school house on The Acre’s property. Complete with mismatched chairs – some of them being copper – and some gorgeous lilac florals – it was a beautiful event. The candlelight provided a warm glow to the room as the couple exchanged their vows. Guests found their seat with the help of dream-catcher place markers, created by the brain behind this operation herself – Kristi from Tickled Pink Brides.

Dinner was enjoyed in the modern, open-air, vine clad, white walled structure. The farm table was adorned with table top accessories from Emily Grace Design and Wish Vintage Rentals. The chargers, Moscow mule mugs, and napkin rings tied in the copper vibe. Add in a few votives and vintage amethyst goblets and the mood was set. A stunning centerpiece, half of which was floating above the table, was created by Arrangements Floral Design. Her talents blew me away!

Not only did Shauna from Arrangements create a stunning centerpiece, but can we talk about that bird cage that she dolled up from Wish Vintage Rentals? This vintage birdcage was overflowing with lush blooms that were flown straight from Holland. The geometric patterns from the invitation directly inspired the four tiered cake from The Sugar Suite. Beautiful petals made from sugar incorporated the florals and lavender from the wedding. And it smelled delicious! The lounge area was created to allow guests to relax and mingle in a comfortable area. Complete with The Acre’s vintage bus (check out that macrame curtain), it provided just that. Wish Vintage Rental’s fun green couch was covered in eclectic pillows. A rug strewn across the coffee table held an assortment of other goodies – including a copper orb. This was such a fun session to be a part of and I’m so grateful for all of the vendors that were involved. I love having the ability to connect with creatives all over the state and to be inspired by all of their creations. Working with this team was a dream. Be sure to check out the trailer created by Love and Lustre which adds a fun element to all of it!

Modern Industrial Winter Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Bright colors, geometric details, bold floral arrangements from Branch Design Studio — these are just a few of the pieces that make up this incredible inspiration shoot. The shoot itself was a photographer’s workshop, so the images you’ll see come from not one but five great photographers, including Dana Cubbage Weddings, Caroline Ro, Jenna Marie Weddings, Taylor Rae Photography, and Sara Bee Photography. Let’s jump on in!

modern industrial winter wedding inspiration - http://ruffledblog.com/modern-industrial-winter-wedding-inspiration

From Dana Cubbage Weddings: In the South, it’s not very common to see a wedding that is funky and bold! We wanted to create something that would inspire brides to break the rules – to pave their own path – when it comes to their wedding day design. From the bold two-toned taper candlesticks, a non-traditional light grey wedding dress, dramatic voluminous hair, and a more relaxed look for the groom – this inspiration shoot was anything but Southern. This inspiration shoot was created as part of a workshop for photographers, hosted by five Charleston-based wedding photographers, with the purpose of educating and training second shooters.

The concept was brought to life by a team of incredible vendors, the project was such a labor of love for everyone involved. Dana Cubbage of Dana Cubbage Weddings, Caroline Howard of Caroline Ro, Jenna Moore of Jenna Marie Weddings, Sara Boyd of Sara Bee Photography, and Taylor Horton of Taylor Rae Photography teamed up together to teach this incredible workshop in downtown Charleston and brainstorm the idea for this beautiful shoot. Eliza Morrison of Branch Design Studio played a huge part in our floral-centric design, suspending bud vases + flowers from our corrugated metal backdrop, as well as creating the most beautiful centerpieces of succulents, copper-sprayed greenery, and black taper candles – a total conversation starter for guests!

Ooh! Events and Polished! Tabletop helped take everything to the next level by streamlining our modern and clean ideas with square dishes, black metal silverware, bold colored vintage stemware and mismatched seating around a dark wood farm table. A white fur runner, glass and copper decorative pieces, and bright colored napkins from EventWorks helped tie everything together.

The bride’s look was simple but still made a statement; a fitted, light grey Watters dress from our local Fabulous Frocks and dramatic makeup to match our modern aesthetic. Carrie of PaperDolls created a full, but loose, curly hairstyle that was perfect for our bride’s dark hair. To match, we asked Weston (our groom – and real-life husband of our bride, Lea) to ditch his tie at the last minute to match Lea’s off-beat look. Still wanting him to look wedding-ready, his anemone boutonniere was the perfect amount of class and formality. This inspiration shoot is a true testament to the amazing things that can happen when you think outside the box.

Rust and Thistle Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

While blue and orange may not be the most common color scheme, this styled shoot from Tracy Enoch Photography, Meggie Fracisco Events, and Expressions of Decor is here to show us how incredibly beautiful the unexpected can be. Our favorite element of this shoot might just be the plaid tablecloth, which ties together the tablescape effortlessly!

From the event designer, Meggie Fracisco Events: The sparkling new Laurel venue in Grapevine, Texas brings a unique option to Dallas and Fort Worth Area couples. With an outdoor ceremony space, an indoor chapel for shelter from unpredictable Texas rain, and an indoor/outdoor reception space, couples looking to wed have lots of options at a location that feels like a destination, but still close to home. In this inspirational shoot, we show off the venue’s hill-country style charm with a bold palette of rust, thistle and porcelain white. The clean wood ceremony altar takes on a more relaxed tone with carefree curly willow and hearty blooms. Crystal chandeliers add a touch of sparkle.

The table, anchored by a robust heavy plaid linen and accented by comfy cushioned benches, overflows with lush greenery and abundant roses and tulips. Antique scroll dinnerware and cut crystal glassware play together to create a relaxed, mix-and-match feeling. Wood-handled Laguiole steak knives reflect the venue’s generous use of wood accents and build anticipation for a hearty Texas steak dinner. The bridal model dons a thickly textured Ines di Santo gown in a rich alabaster tone. The dramatic, low v-back mermaid gown highlights the model’s natural beauty. Sparkly drop earrings and a lush bouquet packed with roses complete the look. We’re honored to share this shoot to show that a wedding can be just as romantic and beautiful even with non-traditional wedding colors. When designing your wedding, start with the colors you love and then think about how to create comfort, warmth, and celebration within that palette. The result will be an event that’s completely unique!

Earthy Industrial Bohemian Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Folks, this next shoot is just about as cool as it gets. The all-star team — which includes talented vendors such as Monika Gauthier Photography & Design, Glitz Events, Tufted Vintage Rentals, Florist Fire, and Citrus Press Co, just to name a few — put together a delectably textured shoot inspired by nature and bohemian styling. This is one you won’t want to miss!

earthy industrial bohemian wedding inspiration - photo by Monika Gauthier Photography http://ruffledblog.com/earthy-industrial-bohemian-wedding-inspiration

From Tufted Vintage Rentals: This editorial was designed to encapsulate our organic interpretation of the bohemian style. Conceptualized by Glitz Events, Tufted Vintage Rentals and Citrus Press Co, we focused on a natural, earthy aesthetic and the healing powers of metaphysical elements to create a neutral, yet moody shoot with some edgier moments throughout. Inspired by materials from nature, our team sought to feature soft textures of macramé, lace and wool juxtaposed with raw, earthy elements of wood, stones and crystals.

The raw backdrop of the Rialto theatre, a 1920s theatre with original exposed brick walls and one stellar arch, was the perfect setting. We even incorporated industrial letters from the buildings original signage. Floral arrangements focused on neutral toned flowers paired with earthy and natural elements such as fungi pods and air plants mixed with greenery including seeded eucalyptus and plumose for texture. Air plant terrariums with gemstone accents were sprinkled throughout the shoot. The bouquet featured one large tillandsia air plant with dried fungi, greenery and dusty miller.

When creating the tablescape we layered textures of lace with fringe placemats and paired the soft elements with warm wood tones and edgy black accents. Air plants, greenery, wheat and cattails were arranged in mismatched clear glass vessels. We decided to use mismatched flatware in mixed tones of silver, wood and gold. Pieces of agate and stone place card holders tied in our rock and crystal theme. Wicker and wood chairs warmed up the sterile feel of the industrial chairs. Unique aspects of our editorial include the ode to metaphysical healing powers. We created a favor station featuring healing crystals that complimented our color scheme. We also incorporated incense as well as a sage smudge, which is an ancient practice used to attract positive energy. To take advantage of Rialto’s expansive space and cozy corners, we created a ceremony with a hand-made macramé backdrop as well as a lounge to showcase unique vintage pieces in wicker and Mexican equipales chairs.

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.

The whole shoot was envisioned, curated, and brought together by me, Tara, of Darling Event & Co. 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.

White and Copper Winter Wedding

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Singler Photography

White and copper make a timeless pair, and they shine like no other for winter weddings. We love that this inspiration is accented with a dose of eucalyptus, the perfect choice to add a bit of cheerful greenery! Singler Photography, Blanc Floral, and So Much Fun Events put together this shoot in San Diego with locally-sourced talent and goods, which makes us love it even more.

From the photographer, Tiffany Singler of Singler Photography: Creativity often inspires more creativity, at least that’s what we found with this winter inspired styled shoot. Luxe Love is a styled shoot incorporating some of San Diego’s local amazing talent. The city is exploding right now with emerging creatives who are pushing the envelope and not afraid to try something new, cool, and different. This shoot incorporates incredible florals, styled decor, a custom marque, beautiful hand lettering, and a wedding cake made entirely out of cheese! What could be better :) As photographers we were excited to be a part of this creative and eclectic shoot! It was awesome to work with this inspirational dream team.

Desert Dance Party Wedding in Ojai

Bohemian Weddings

We love this incredible wedding from Marble Rye Photography and Elli Lauren Photography for its ability to take all the best parts of the desert setting and make it into the most epic party/dinner/celebration possible. Bijoux Events worked some serious magic, putting together a day full of so much fun and modern chicness we can’t resist poring over every detail.

desert dance party wedding in Ojai - photo by Marble Rye Photography http://ruffledblog.com/desert-dance-party-wedding-in-ojai

From the event designers, Bijoux Events: This wedding is not only gorgeous but it has some really unique concepts that were so much fun to play with and incorporate. We used some copper troughs, pink himalayan salt cubes, and incorporated some actual cactus into the arrangements which is a little different spin on the whole succulent trend. Even though there is a hint of industrial and geometric shapes in metal in this design, it was so incredibly soft, romantic and elegant at the same time! The couple had a few ideas of what they liked but they had no idea how to reign in all of the ideas into one cohesive look. I constantly received texts of photos from my bride of weddings they were attending, concepts, ideas, florals, all of things she liked but they always contradicted the last. It was fun trying to incorporate little pieces of each one and create that “wow” face when they walked into the wedding spaces. Who would have thought that Coral peonies, cactus, and copper all went together?! Their best friend, named Renewal, married them and they ended the ceremony by carrying their pup “Joey” down the aisle for the recession. They even officially changed their pup’s name to Joey “Lavoie” after the wedding. Too cute.

The groom is in the music industry and so their music list was off the charts and very important to them. Brandon worked in depth with Dart DJs to put together a truly unique song list that kept the dance floor full the entire night! They walked down the aisle to Avett Brothers and Postal Service. First dance song – When I get my hands on you by The New Basment Tapes. We had them start their first dance completely alone and then had the guests enter into the reception during their first dance. It was so romantic. They got to have a minute alone, with their stunning wedding reception all setup around them and the mountains pink from the sun behind them before anyone else came in. I highly suggest it. Couples have so few moments alone on their wedding day, it was truly magical and special for them.

The bride’s exact words: “As you know, I didn’t have an exact vision of our wedding while we were in the planning phases, and Saturday I felt like I walked into a dream that I didn’t even know I had. It was the most beautiful wedding I’ve ever seen and we haven’t stopped talking about it. We had the greatest time ever and couldn’t have done it without you.”

Copper and Slate Autumn Inspiration Shoot

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Love by Serena

Two seconds flat — that’s roughly how long it took me to fall in love with this incredible shoot from the talented team of Love By Serena, East Made Event Company, and Mobtown Florals. The unique color palette of copper, slate, and mustard works beautifully, while the bride positively shines in her Hayley Paige wedding gown. And let’s not forget that killer hairstyle, either!

copper and slate autumn inspiration shoot - photo by Love by Serena http://ruffledblog.com/copper-and-slate-autumn-inspiration-shoot

From the event planner, Elizabeth of East Made Event Company: With this shoot, I wanted to bring modern, geometric elements into nature — the Japanese maple tree grove at Cylburn Arboretum in Baltimore provided such a unique location for this. I grew up in Baltimore City and many of the details I chose — the leather club chair, the copper lanterns, our model’s funky braided hairstyle — could easily fit into a modern/industrial city wedding but may not typically be used in a garden setting.

I was also interested in an alternative color palette — copper and slate are two colors currently on trend but adding mustard yellow brought a softer, more bohemian feel. Mustard yellow is one of my favorite colors and my husband wasn’t crazy about using it in our own wedding, so this was finally my chance! Our model’s gorgeous naturally red hair added a deeper dimension of classic yet modern glamour to this shoot. We were lucky on shooting day with the sun angles late in the afternoon and Serena from Love By Serena was able to capture some incredible shots on film.

Stylish Pennsylvania Bird Sanctuary Wedding

Garden Weddings

Photos by:

Pat Furey

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

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

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

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

Green Thumb Wedding at Terrain

Wedding Design

If you’ve got a green thumb and love to garden, I think we’ve found the perfect wedding for you. Jessica Cooper Photography and Sebesta Design put together this stylish wedding shoot inspired by lots of natural textures and a warm color palette of gold, copper, orange, and yellow. Stay tuned, because we’ve got a great DIY tutorial from the team coming later today!

green thumb wedding at Terrain - photo by Jessica Cooper Photography http://ruffledblog.com/green-thumb-wedding-at-terrain

From the photographer Jessica Cooper Photography and the designer Sebesta Design: Inspired by theme “Rooted In Love” and the ultra organic look of hanging root balls we worked with hearty textures like wood, grapevine and leather to give the shoot a grounded natural feel, but wanted to bring in lots of lush textures in both the blossoms and foliage so that it didn’t loose its romantic edge. This late Summer, early Fall sunset color palette of gold, copper, terra cotta and dusty blue allowed us to play with so many great blossoms.

Double petal garden roses played off of the flittering buds on the northern sea oats, while long spikes of dusty blue delphinium laid side by side with lush and low velvety clusters of the raspberry coxcomb. The entire inspiration was brought to life at Terrain at their Garden Shed & Greenhouse. The rough cut wooden planks and walls gave us the perfect backdrop for everything from our hanging grapevine ball arrangements, to our specialty drink display.

Modern Romantic Wedding Ideas with Marsala

Wedding Design

Marsala is a color that continues to inspire, and we’ve never seen it look so good as it does paired with copper in today’s styled shoot. Kai Heeringa Photography, Ideal Events & Design, and Damsel Floral Co. created a styled wedding that brings together both traditional romance and also modern design ideas for a look that’s truly captivating.

modern romantic wedding ideas with marsala - photo by Kai Heeringa Photography http://ruffledblog.com/modern-romantic-wedding-ideas-with-marsala

From the event designer, Rebecca of Ideal Events & Design: Inspiration for this shoot came initially from the Pantone Color of the Year, marsala. This color choice has been the subject of many heated blog posts and designer discussions! When I first heard the color choice, I was taken aback, feeling like many that it seemed dated. However, whenever a color of the year is announced, we always see it used as varied shades through the design world and no one can argue that shades of maroon, burgundy, and fig have been used more often lately. So I chose to use a variation of marsala as an accent in a wedding designed to take place between the transitioning of seasons from winter to spring. Icy gray linens with lots of candlelight, thick oriental rugs, and a cocktail station are a nod to warm winter nights by the fire, while blush pinks, lots of greenery, and tulips hint of the spring to come.

Bouquet recipe: Kaci of Damsel Floral put together the loveliest floral arrangements, starting with an amazing bridal bouquet of ranunculus, veronica, tulips, roses, protea, and campsis. The trailing ribbons were the final touch that made me fall head over heels for the bouquet.

The icy gray linens from Special Occasions West set off the perfect amount of shimmer and the fig napkins matched the place card envelopes perfectly. These envelopes, beautifully calligraphed by Emilie of Lief Design, contained the evening’s menu card. A simple but dramatic touch to add on each place setting. The table runner of eucalyptus smelled amazing and only needed a collection of candlesticks from Events by I.Candy to be completed.

Our bride and groom, both ballet dancers, were a stunning couple. The bride was dressed in a lace Rosa Clara gown from Renee Austin Wedding. This classically beautiful dress needed no other adornment, especially with the romantic hairstyle and gorgeous makeup from Whitney and Sarah at Brindle & Blonde. And yes, that is all the model’s real hair! The groom was outfitted in a classic suit from AK Rikk’s. My favorite detail of his outfit was the small blue pin on his lapel. The Studio at AK Rikk’s is an amazing space – with both modern and classic elements, so many weddings and events would work perfectly here. The moulding makes the walls anything but basic and natural light streams in through a wall of windows. Every detail was captured beautifully by Kai Heeringa Photography. The invitation suite, with shades of blush pink and fig, was designed by Ideal Events & Design and addressed in the most gorgeous calligraphy from Lief Design.

Natural Woodsy and Copper Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Bold blue and copper are two colors that just pair perfectly together, don’t you agree? Today’s team of vendors (including Olivia Richards Photography, Spreading Lovely, and Jaclyn K. Nesbitt Designs, to name a few) certainly thought so, as they used this coupling for the basis of their styled photo shoot. Add in a pop of yellow floral design, and we’re ready to go!

natural woodsy and copper wedding inspiration - photo by Olivia Richards Photography http://ruffledblog.com/natural-woodsy-and-copper-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Olivia Richards: Morgan, from Spreading Lovely, and I have been dreaming up a copper inspired styled shoot for months, and we were so happy when it finally all came together! We wanted to create an inspiration shoot that could inspire weddings transitioning from summer into fall, and we knew navy blue and copper would be the perfect combination! Morgan built the copper ceremony alter with copper piping and copper wire, and added in the geometric hanging lanterns (from Urban Outfitters) to tie the whole look together. We also brought the copper details into the tablescape, with lots of candle holders and metal cups (from H&M), and even in the unique take on place cards, where Mandy (from Myrtle & Lloyd) painted calligraphy on pieces of copper piping.

A local bakery, who specializes in vegan and gluten-free cakes and pastries, baked up a gorgeous (and yummy!) wedding cake accented with copper painted brushstrokes, blueberries, and thistle flowers on top. All of these amazing pieces of shoot came together at The Ranch at Little Hills wedding venue in San Ramon, CA, which is the perfect setting for a late summer/early fall wedding! We loved the natural setting of the venue with the coppery colored leaves covering the ground, and think our shoot brings a lot of uniqueness by highlighting lush greenery as an equally beautiful alternative to expensive florals. We also love how our shoot focuses on copper as the main color, rather than just as the accent.

Neo-Vintage Industrial Wedding

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Mirabel Photography

For their recent styled wedding shoot, a team consisting of Mirabel Photography, Fleur de Lis Event Consulting, and Ella Floral Event Design put together this industrial inspiration session with a bit of a neo-vintage twist. Light bulbs were the star of the show, playing on a “you light up my life” theme — how cute is that?!

Neo-Vintage Industrial Wedding - photo by Mirabel Photography http://ruffledblog.com/neo-vintage-industrial-wedding

From the event designer, Valerie of Fleur de Lis Event Consulting: Have you ever fallen for someone so deeply just the thought of them lights you up? This unbelievable feeling was the inspiration behind this styled editorial shoot: You Light Up My Life. Throughout this neo-vintage industrial shoot various types of light bulbs make a notable appearance. The “light of my life” cake topper was constructed from different watt light bulbs and a calligrapher’s talented hand. The decanter stoppers, martini sticks and even the light bulb place cards all fall in line with the theme.

A color palette of creamy whites with bronze accents made the perfect combination for this elegant modern yet retro design. As we have all learned from fashion- trends always resurface, but often take on a whole new look. You can see this twist in the acrylic Chiavari chairs, lace bridal gown with sleeves, the modern decanters and custom handwritten invitations. Look at the lush tablescape and candle filled stairwell; every detail of this shoot shines bright!

We started by bringing all of our elements and details to one of Chicago’s most up and coming venues, Brique. With all of the natural light, brick and white walls it provided, we were able to use it as the most perfectly, naturally lit backdrop. We started our inspiration with the color selections of cream, copper and marsala. From there came rich and full florals, a naked cake, copper pots, lace applique on the dress, a navy three-piece suite, custom-made pearl ring, and a farm table and chairs that everyone dreams of having in their home one day — every dreamed-up element came together perfectly.

For the shoot, we incorporated pieces of birch throughout the venue and dinner table which paired perfectly with the gorgeous naked cake designed by Alliance Bakery. Laura Ahern of Accent on Events helped style our tablescape and dessert bar which included marsala linen napkins, candles, wooden chargers and a delicate cream runner, which was the perfect contrast to our farm table provided by Tablescapes Rental. The shoot wouldn’t have come together without the stunning florals by Oliver Dogwood Co., providing the gorgeous, visual beauty which truly linked everything back to our original inspiration.

Late Fall Wedding Ideas with a Cider Bar

Wedding Design

What’s chilly weather without hot apple cider? We’re thrilled to share with you this inspired inspiration shoot from Cyrience Creative Studios and Natalie Trento, who mixed plaid fabrics with copper, blues, and apples for a photo shoot that perfectly embodies the cold weather spirit. We love the idea of having stemware suspended over the cider bar with ribbon, so each guest can cut down their own glass!

From the event designer, Natalie Trento: Fall in New York is an amazing time of year, so we designed this stylized shoot to capture some of our absolute favorite autumn elements. From the gorgeous plaid table runners, to the DIY hand-painted copper apples, to the provincial wire baskets and mercury glass candle holders, each component of the shoot was thoughtfully chosen to create a rustic yet modern autumn feel.

Additionally, many of the décor elements, such as the cookbooks, spice jars, and apples, were carefully selected because of their affordability or reusable qualities. We truly wanted this shoot to feel inspirational yet attainable, so that regardless of their budget, couples could incorporate aspects of the decor into their own weddings. For instance, the hanging wine glass display above the bar and dessert buffet was created out of a 12’ metal pole, 50 yards of navy and charcoal grosgrain ribbon, and wine glasses. This display is not only unique due to its affordable components, but because of the fun and functionality of allowing guests to select and cut their own wine glasses from the display.

Farm fresh donuts and apple cider (we decided to serve both spiced and hard) adorned the self-serve bar along with some of our favorite budget-friendly red wine. Love truly is the spice of life, so in lieu of traditional favors,a display of spice jars was set up for guests to take home with them. The thought was that these spices could be used by the wedding’s guests again and again, and would function as lovely reminders of this intimate fall wedding.

Jennifer Cyr of Cyrience Creative Studios was the brilliant photographer behind all of the lovely images. Natalie Trento of Natalie Trento Events conceptualized and implemented the stylized wedding design. The Kitchen Table, a beautiful downtown NYC private dining and event space that was recently featured on Vogue.com, provided the perfect setting for this intimate wedding shoot. The paper goods, including the adorable leaf “place cards” and recipe RSVP cards, were designed and printed by Afsoon Talai of Golreezan.

Halloween Oddities Inspiration Shoot

Wedding Design

What’s Halloween without a little bit of spookiness? This styled shoot from Rach Lea Photography and Ivory and Beau takes the Spanish moss that’s native to Savannah, GA and uses it to add an eerie, almost swamp-like effect that’s perfect for All Hallows’ Eve. We love that the “groom” brought his own pets to the shoot for an unexpected treat!

From the stylists, Nicole and Adrienna of Ivory and Beau: My best friend, Rachel, who is now getting married was dying to model for us and her tattoos inspired us to come up with an edgy, funky and darker wedding inspiration. With that are our starting point we came up with the theme of oddities and skulls. The Paris Market and Graveface Records had some amazing skulls and taxidermy pieces that we used for decor elements. For the flowers we wanted really dark elements and used a staple of Savannah and Savannah weddings, spanish moss, in a much darker way than normally seen.

The shoot took place at an old dairy farm, which has an almost haunted feel to it. Savannah is known for being a haunted city so it fit really well but in a completely different way than vendors normally portray Savannah. For an added treat, our guy model brought his 2 pets: a boa constrictor and a pitbull, which were perfect touches for the theme, except for when the boa constrictor decided to slither on the table… :) For the bride we modeled her in an assymetrical funky short dress from Faith Thornburg with a tulle and fishnet Twigs & Honey veil and we have Milan Day Spa do a faux hawk with intertwining braids.
