You’ll Fall For This Romantic Estate Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Gold and blue are a match made in heaven, and this wedding from Emily Wren Photography is here to prove it. As every wedding should be, their day was full of sweet personal details and cute nods to the couple’s love for each other, including the groom’s gift of red Converse sneakers to the bride. The always-on-point Love n’ Fresh Flowers delivered the floral arrangements full of vibrant texture.

Romantic Hindu and Humanist Wedding Weekend

Garden Weddings

Photos by:

Dominique Bader

When we see the words “wedding weekend” pop up, we’re automatically enamored by what’s to come in the photos. Dominique Bader was in charge of documenting Sundari and Andy’s festivities and it was kicked off by the warm and vibrant Hindu, Sri-Lankan Tamil wedding. Following their first celebration, their Humanist wedding was dressed in lovely shades of white and grey with delightful additions of green thanks to the creations by Floribunda Rose. With a gala like this, Always Andri Wedding Design was on hand to offer not only smooth planning but fantastic design as well.

Autumn Wedding for Two Middle School Sweethearts

Rustic Weddings

The sweetest details and couple storyline are splashed all over this beautiful Alex Lasota Photography wedding. Not only does it have sweet and pink whimsical details designed and planned by Tin Sparrow Events with florals by Simplified Celebrations, Jordan and Dyllan’s school-age love story is one for the books and it definitely gets two thumbs up from us with ooh’s and aww’s thrown in as well. It’s clear from Alex’s fantastic shots how overjoyed these two lovebirds are to finally be marrying one another, and there’s no better place to say their I Do’s than with these stunning ranch views in the background. Heartfelt weddings are just the best!

Outdoor Bohemian Colorado Wedding

Australian florals, horseshoe escort cards and a family-style feast enhanced with bowls of citrus? We simply can’t get enough of Brooke and Sam’s Colorado wedding captured by Harper Point Photography. Calluna Events once again designed a gorgeous Colorado wedding with floral design by Lalé Floral Design, who added Aussie blooms like Kangaroo Paws, Geraldton Wax and Gum Nuts since the bride is from Australia herself.

Scenic Mt. Hood Organic Farms Wedding

Romantic Weddings

According to the bride, Hannah, she wanted to get married in a beautiful place and we have to agree with her and Jeremy that Mt. Hood Organic Farms is exactly that beautiful place they wanted and more. Maria Lamb Photography showed us all of the stunning farm scenes and how breathtaking they are, along with how effortlessly Whitney Werts Events and Foraged Floral managed to work in designs and blooms that meshed so well with the venue. If Portland looks like this all the time, we may have to make a few trips to catch the beauty!

From the bride, Hannah: In the initial phases of wedding planning, we knew we wanted to get married in a beautiful place, surrounded by the people we love, with good food, Oregon beer, and great music. Our goal was to throw a fabulously beautiful party in celebration of our love! We also knew we were going to need some help to make this happen. We were lucky enough to find Whitney with Whitney Werts Events who has really made all of our wedding dreams come to life! Whitney has helped us make a beautiful event and put us in touch with the most perfect vendors.

Jeremy and Hannah met in college. The two were attending Reed College, Jeremy was a senior and Hannah was a sophomore. With the help of their mutual friend (and now groomsman in the wedding!) Henry, the two went on a date to a tiny little Thai restaurant in SE Portland. There must have been something extra special in the pad thai that evening, because the rest is history.

The Proposal: Hannah is a competitive horse back rider and totally obsessed with horses. Jeremy surprised her with tickets to the world cup of show jumping in Alberta, Canada. They spent the first day of the trip at the horse show, but the next day Jeremy drove them up to Lake Louise (probably one of the most beautiful places ever!) and proposed next to the lake. After Hannah said yes, the two celebrated with lakeside champagne and chocolates.

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.

Hazelwood Photo

When summer turns to fall, we can’t think of a more beautiful place to exchange vows than the scenic Pacific Northwest. Seana and Brian married each other in Portland, Oregon, and infused their wedding day with nods to the 1920s via vintage furniture, mercury glass, and a vintage-inspired wedding gown. With Hazelwood Photo behind the camera, Pearl and Roses Wedding Planning tackling day-of coordination, and Swoon Floral in charge of floral design, this is one for the books!

Modern Romance Inspiration with Pops of Jewel Tones

Wedding Design

This wedding inspiration editorial has everything: a stunning backdrop that could double as fine art, an impromptu boudoir session, and a lovely modern grey tablescape with flashes of deep plum. It’s all so brilliant and we’re so thrilled Jillian Rose Photography snapped it all. Ede by Jacqueline was smitten by the location of the shoot and knew the exact direction to go to complement the outdoor space, highlighting the delightful architectural features. Autumn Vine Design thought to pair the various shades of blue with shades of purple, and it was such a swell move since the floral arrangements stick out so beautifully amidst all of the design elements.

From the event planner, Ede by Jacqueline: The venue itself was so incredibly charming and unique. I loved Ebell’s high ceilings and unique chandeliers that were offering that outdoor feel. I thought having stronger jewel toned colors would pop in this space. Also, with Ebell’s stunning bridal suite, I knew I had to incorporate a soft and romantic boudoir session.

A boudoir session doesn’t always have to be a separate day of shooting. Don’t hesitate to ask your photographer about getting some choice snapshots of you before the heyday of hair and makeup come around. Pick a great spot with nature lighting and wear your favorite lingerie and most importantly, relax and let the camera snap those natural smiles!

During the planning process, I came across a stunning art piece made by Christine Olmstead and I knew I had to incorporate it in the shoot somehow. It was definitely not easy shipping it across the country, however I knew this would make this shoot come alive. I’ve become a fan of using stunning art pieces as backdrops for weddings, it can be so versatile and unique!

Woodland Garden Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Look no further if you’re in need of some wedding day inspiration that combines the beautiful woodland outdoors, stunning photos by Amberlee for Jessica Cooper Photography, and picture-perfect blooms by Larkspur Botanicals. This wedding, tucked away in the trees, has got the right amount of whimsy and romance and those two things have always gone so well together.

From the bride, Amory: My fiancé and I wanted to have a very intimate backyard wedding. We were going for a rustic yet simple style. The backyard was so gorgeous with lots of trees and greenery so we really wanted that to be a big part of the style.

Our day was romantic, fun and rustic. I went with a gold/blush color scheme. We had lots of DIY projects such as creating our seating chart. My father in law built the big piece of wood and stained it for us. Once that was done, my sister in law wrote all of the table numbers and guests names on our sign. It was one of my favorite pieces of the wedding. She also made our drink menu, ceremony sign and an “unplugged sign”. The unplugged sign was an important part for both my fiancé and I. We wanted people to really be there with us and share this special moment rather than on their phones.

We then shared our professional photos with our family & friends when we received them, which they loved. I created little cones with flower petals to have thrown once my husband and I walked out of the ceremony. I also created the table numbers. I bought lots of gold & blush picture frames and we wrote the table numbers inside of them. They were adorable and very easy to make.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Planning your wedding is half the fun! It may get crazy and difficult but stay true to what you want. Everyone will be happy if you are happy. Some of my best memories besides the wedding, were planning it. Such as buying my dress with my mom, cake tasting etc.

First Dance: “I’ll Be,” Edwin McCain (My husband had heard that song in the car when he was about 7 years old. He had told his nanny that would be his wedding song one day.)
We also played Endless Love by Lionel Richie which was my in-laws’ wedding song. It was their 20th anniversary so we played it for them and let them have a dance. It was a total surprise to them and such a great moment.

Colorful Bohemian German Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

An outdoor boho chic wedding doesn’t always have to be in an earthy setting as Sarah and Martin’s vibrant Germany wedding proves. Expertly photographed by Ashley Ludaescher Photography, hosting a bohemian-style fête on the grounds of an impressive estate like this one in the equally-impressive German countryside is just as perfect! Choosing a palette with moody reds as the foundation, Love Circus transformed Sarah and Martin’s wedding venue into a hip location with the right amount of elegance from Ulrike Buchheim‘s floral designs. All of the different elements and trends harmonizing so well together has us gleaming with delight!

Germany wedding photographers - photo by Ashley Ludaescher http://ruffledblog.com/colorful-bohemian-german-wedding

From the photographer, Ashley Ludaescher Photography: This wedding beautifully styled by Love Circus, was so much fun to photograph. With a bohemian garden theme, guests enjoyed the beautiful summer weather in Northern Germany on the stunning grounds of Schloss Herzfelde. Guests escaped the city and spent the weekend celebrating Sarah & Martin tying the knot after a decade together. From the flower crown station for the guests to create their own flower crowns, to the bride’s gorgeous Mira Zwillinger dress, the weekend was filled with beautiful touches and details. Sarah works in fashion and her dress purchased from Brown’s Bride in London fit her perfectly and matched the relaxed sophisticated vibe of the wedding weekend.

Mixing and matching wedding style ideas can be nerve-wracking, especially if the two or more ideas are complete polar opposites of one another. Opt for having luscious florals if you’re seeking out an elegant wedding and toss your more modern ideas in during cocktail hour, as seen here in Sarah and Martin’s fun and bohemian wedding lounge area. A huge tip for pulling the ideas off: be sure to keep the color choices consistent throughout your big day!

Elegant African-Inspired Mountain Wedding

Elegant Weddings

There’s something so beautiful about each wedding set against a mountain backdrop. Utah native Tyler Rye Photography captured Raynesha and Dominic’s beautiful day, and he documented all of the impressive decor by Forevermore Events and beautiful moments, even when the rain started pouring. With a strong desire to incorporate their African heritage throughout their wedding, bloomers flower & decor took cues from Raynesha and Dominic to use South Africa’s national flower and the latest hot bloom, king protea, in their arrangements. We could go on all day about this beautiful wedding but the pictures speak better for themselves.

elegant Utah weddings - photo by Tyler Rye Photography http://ruffledblog.com/elegant-african-inspired-mountain-wedding

From the bride, Raynesha: I wanted to be on top of world when I said forever. I wanted to capture the love and the way my husband looked at me in total admiration. I always wanted to get married in the mountains or somewhere outdoors because there is something so magical about nature. I envisioned a little bit of everything. I wanted touches of rich colors and gold to give a regal feel. I wanted to bring a small touch of African symbolism to celebrate our heritage. Our colors were blush, wine, and gold. Our theme was rustic elegance with a touch of African inspiration. My husband got crafty and decorated the broom we jumped over to commemorate an African-American tradition. He used burlap fabric from Michael’s which was wrapped at various stages up the handle with burgundy and gold ribbons from Ace Hardware using a hot glue gun and gold craft wire. Instead of pouring sand for unity, we used dirt from our childhood homes to join together and we plan on using that dirt to plant a tree at our first home.

Modern Downtown Savannah Wedding

Modern Weddings

Today’s wedding is hailing from the ever-beautiful Savannah, Georgia. When you have plenty of lovely sights and scenery in this town, it’s no wonder why Emily and Adam wanted to say their I Do’s here. Mackensey Alexander Photography captured the couple’s beautiful wedding day along with all of the very fine details with it. This warm-colored wedding adds such a heavy dash of sophistication and modernity, and what we love the most is that the couple came up with the design all on their own with Ivory + Beau helping them execute their vision.  They kept the color palette toned down and went for cool browns and soft neutrals, and then went bold with the flowers and enlisted Colonial House of Flowers for their skills. This elegant fête is one for the books!

From the bride, Emily: Adam and I wanted our wedding to feel like an intimate, joyful dinner with our friends and family. We wanted our wedding to feel formal yet understated, modern yet warm, and elegant yet relaxed. We wanted every moment to genuinely feel like us, and to reflect our joy. More than anything, we wanted to give our guests the opportunity to feel our love – both the love between Adam and me, and the love we have for all of them.

Whimsical Oceanside Wedding

DIY Weddings

Gaby J Photography

Bright and colorful are two words we get giddy about when we hear a real wedding description. Gaby J Photography had the liberty of hanging out all over Rancho Guajome’s grounds to capture Cinthia and Rick’s wedding. Add in some beautiful pink tones and ivory hydrangea and you’ve got a sweet day of celebration for the books!

bride and groom - photo by Gaby J Photography http://ruffledblog.com/ranch-style-wedding-in-oceanside

From the bride, Cinthia: I tried to go for shabby chic, but ended up with of mixture of stuff. Our whole wedding was very much DIY. Rick was very adamant about not living together before we got married so we pretty much organized the whole wedding long distance. We considered many options for our wedding. Like having a cute elopement in Point Reyes CA or having a BIG wedding here in Vegas but we couldn’t find something we both could truly agree on. We had a budget so I started looking at state parks in San Diego. I found Rancho Guajome online. We checked it out on a weekend I was out there and booked it a week later. They were the most affordable with minimal restrictions. It was also very beautiful. The garden area where we got married had all the flowers in full bloom when we saw it the first time. One year later we got married and he relocated to Vegas.

Lyons Farmette Bohemian Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

Our Love is Loud

We love hearing these words from a bride: “We wanted the land to be our decor and we added just a few personal touches to the natural beauty that surrounded us.” Newlyweds Ashley and Brian married at the breathtaking Lyons Farmette in Colorado, incorporating a few bohemian touches like a macrame ceremony backdrop and wildflower floral arrangements along the way. Thank you to Our Love is Loud for sharing your work!

Lyons Farmette bohemian wedding - photo by Our Love is Loud http://ruffledblog.com/lyons-farmette-bohemian-wedding

From the bride, Ashley: I didn’t have a specific “style” in mind for our wedding but I knew I wanted it to be a collection of all of our favorite things. We love nature and feel very supported by the land which made it important for us to find a beautiful outdoor space that had trees, water, and a fire pit. We wanted the land to be our decor and we added just a few personal touches to the natural beauty that surrounded us.

I’d describe our day as natural, grounded, Earthy, fun! The women in the bridal party wore tones of blush, pink, and rose gold and the men wore gray suits with navy bow ties. The napkins were DIY. We purchased multiple fabrics and created the napkins for the tables, which added a nice touch. The alter was made from family members and we took lots of time and attention to bring photos and important items for our alter space and tables. One of my favorite parts of the wedding was walking through the Lyon’s Farmette garden and showing the florist, who works full time on the land, what colors and flowers I liked. She hand made the bouquets and floral arrangements the morning of our wedding and all the flowers came from the garden on site.

California Orange Grove Wedding

Modern Weddings

Last week we shared an inspiring wedding shoot in an orange grove, and today we’re bringing you a real wedding in one! Fondly Forever Photography and Hello Gem Events worked together on Becca and Michael’s big day, which took place completely outdoors and embraces the epitome of “California cool.”

California orange grove wedding - photo by Fondly Forever Photography http://ruffledblog.com/california-orange-grove-wedding

From the bride, Becca: Most importantly we wanted our guests to experience the beauty and warmth that we feel each time we visit our family ranch. Using this as our vision led us to make a number of design decisions alongside our wonderful planners Hello Gem such as: having all three parts of the wedding completely outdoors from the cocktail hour in the middle of the orange grove to the reception in a field under the stars. We felt this vision really came to life in many ways – our bartenders, for example, embraced the cocktail hour in the grove, spontaneously picking oranges from the tree and making fresh screwdrivers for guests!

Vintage Glam Rainy Day Wedding

Romantic Weddings

If you love vintage glam but don’t want to go all-out with the theme, we think you’ll find tons to love in Jessica and Brandyn’s wedding day. Virginia Ashley Photography and George’s Flowers put in great work for this couple’s celebration, filling the day with beautiful flowers (including the most stunning burgundy dahlias) and capturing every moment perfectly.

From the photographer, Ashley of Virginia Ashley Photography: There were so many sweet moments in Jessica and Brandyn’s day! Their wedding was filled with such style! Jessica’s Gatsby-inspired dress was stunning, the bridesmaids were beautiful in shades of blues/grays, and the groomsmen looked dapper. The lush florals throughout their day had me smitten too! The decor and charm of their wedding fit these two perfectly!

Blue and Peach Organic Wedding

Romantic Weddings

The combination of soft blue and delicate peach in today’s wedding is one to fall in love with. Caroline Lima Photography and Tre Bella worked to make Danielle and Adam’s big day as memorable as possible, and we have no doubt they achieved their goal. There’s much to love in this wedding, but we’re still reeling over the bride’s emotional first look with her father!

blue and peach organic wedding - photo by Caroline Lima Photography http://ruffledblog.com/blue-and-peach-organic-wedding

From the photographer, Caroline Lima Photography: When I asked Danielle and Adam to name three things that made them fall in love with each other, they had a bit of trouble responding at first. That’s because they both felt that creating a short list would be difficult. But finally they spoke of being drawn to one another also because they each share a deep devotion to their families. And as I watched their beautiful wedding unfold, as their two families became one, I could clearly see why! Danielle and Adam come from truly loving, kind-hearted stock.

Fuchsia and Emerald Wedding at Villa Woodbine

Garden Weddings

Photos by:

Michelle March

The color combination of fuchsia and emerald green makes my heart sing oh-so-much, so you can imagine how excited I was to see this wedding from Michelle March and Sullivan Owen Floral & Event Design. The rich colors play off each other beautifully, and accent the couple’s romantic ceremony and reception more perfectly than we could imagine. Congratulations to the newlyweds, Joann and Nate!

fuchsia and emerald wedding at Villa Woodbine - photo by Michelle March http://ruffledblog.com/fuchsia-and-emerald-wedding-at-villa-woodbine

From the bride, Joann: I envisioned a garden wedding with old world influences. The venue was my inspiration. I chose bridesmaid dresses that matched the lush greenery and palms. I saw the giant oak tree in the garden, and wanted to transform it into the backdrop of where we were to get married with Spanish moss and romantic florals.

Emerald green and fuchsia were our main colors. I think my head table really encompasses the look of our wedding. We used vintage lace runners on the rustic farm tables, mercury glass and rose gold candle votives and vases, and assorted Vintage candlesticks with taper candles. We had a Vintage postcard station for guests to sign instead of a guest book, which one of my bridesmaids gradually mailed to me throughout our first year of marriage. Used Grandma’s vintage bell collection – one on each table for guests to “ring the bell to see kisses from the new Mr. and Mrs.”

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Try to have fun with your partner in making the plans. My husband is really into music so I let him take account for all things music related and he loved being able to contribute to the planning of our wedding day. I love florals and had so much fun being able to work with my florist to make my vision come true!

Colorful Carondelet House Wedding

Romantic Weddings

By now, it seems like we’ve professed our love for Carondelet House dozens of times. If you aren’t already as smitten as we are, then by the time you see these images from Lukas & Suzy VanDyke you’ll completely understand the hype. Thanks to Orange Blossom Special Events and Peony & Plum for helping bring together the couple’s vision for a cultural celebration of love!

From the bride, Jenny: I met Paul when he was three weeks away from moving to China for a year. I didn’t think he would call me since he was leaving so soon, but the next day he set up a unique date for us. He wanted to share some of his experiences with me, as he had traveled all over the world — to India, Vietnam, Cambodia, Israel, Jordan, Thailand, and Sri Lanka, to name a few. Paul found a Sri Lankan festival in Santa Monica and brought me to listen to the music, enjoy the dancing and the spicy food. We grew so close over those three weeks before he left for China and continued to fall in love while he was across the world.

A year later, Paul came home and we moved in together. We rescued the best dog ever, our fur baby, Ellie! One day I came home to find a note on the door. Paul had set up a scavenger hunt and used pictures from our relationship as the clues. He posted the pictures all over our neighborhood, and at the end of the hunt I found Paul and Ellie (and a ton of strangers who had gathered to watch) standing with roses. Paul got down on one knee, and of course I said yes. But he wasn’t done just yet. It just so happened to be Sri Lankan day in Santa Monica that evening, so to celebrate we relived our first date.

When designing our wedding, we wanted to incorporate lots of color and flowers inspired by the cultures that Paul and I love. We didn’t want it to be too girly. So I was especially thrilled when I stumbled upon Hmong runners and napkins from Thailand. We couldn’t be more thrilled with how everything came together and we cannot thank all our vendors enough for all their hard work to make our day just perfect!

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.

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.

Minnesota Hilltop Elopement Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Melissa Oholendt

If the ceremony arch and bouquet combination from today’s shoot by Melissa Oholendt, Munster Rose, and FAB Event Design doesn’t stop you in your tracks, well we just don’t know what to say. Us? We’re completely floored by the floral arrangements, that lace gown (and the jumpsuit!), and the delicious cocktails. Luckily we’ve got the recipes so you can whip up the yummy drinks for yourself!

Minnesota hilltop elopement inspiration - photo by Melissa Oholendt http://ruffledblog.com/minnesota-hilltop-elopement-inspiration

From the floral designers, Munster Rose: Even though the Midwest is known for it’s harsh winters, we are lucky enough to truly get to experience all four seasons including a spectacular and prolonged fall season. October and November have seen a resurgence in popularity where we’ve seen bride & grooms take full advantage of the beautiful colors and textures that are completely unique to our autumn season.

We took our inspiration directly from the fabulous fall textures and bundled it with an epic rolling hillside elopement and chic cocktail-focused reception (because who doesn’t love a negroni in the fall?). We wanted to take the outdoor element that the Midwest is known for but turn it on it’s head and make it chic, romantic and ever so slightly poetic to play off of L.M. Montgomery’s quote in Anne of Green Gables “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” Because we are oh-so-glad we live in a world where there are Octobers.

Al Fresco Beach Wedding in La Jolla

Beach Weddings

This gorgeous Tuscan inspired wedding created by Evangeline Lane Photography, First Comes Love San Diego and Organic Elements is nothing short of breathtaking. The touches of Italian influences throughout every part of this wedding will make you believe that it took place right in an Italian villa. From the gelato bar to the lush florals, this wedding is absolutely stunning.

Tuscan countryside inspired wedding in La Jolla - photo by Evangeline Lane Photography http://ruffledblog.com/tuscan-countryside-inspired-wedding-in-la-jolla

From the photographer, Sarah: We wanted a Tuscan daytime family style wedding. We wanted it to feel like we were at someone’s home. I used to live in Florence and spent a lot of time in Tuscany out in the countryside. It was important to recreate this feeling. The hotel was a perfect place to do that. We didn’t have a color scheme per se but we wanted natural colors and not one color to stand out.

Flower recipe: I had a really long cascading bouquet. My mom also had one at her wedding in 1984. Mine had coral garden roses, soft pink peonies, pale coral dahlias, soft orange dahlias, tuberose, dark centered white anemones, white ranunculus, silver dollar eucalyptus, and olive branches.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? We planned it in 6 months, it was perfect. Not too much time to stress. We also loved having it on a Sunday so we could enjoy the whole weekend with friends and family. I would highly suggest a Sunday wedding… We all went to the pool after and that night we just relaxed. I loved having it during the day because we got to be with all of our guests and have fun.

From the photographer, Evangeline Lane Photography: Sarah and Aristo have a love for all things Italy. While planning their La Jolla wedding, it was important to find a location that allowed us to create an intimate feeling of having your closest friends and family over at a private villa. We found the perfect setting in Estancia – the Olive Lawn felt like the Tuscan countryside with steps where the couple said their “I Dos.” In lieu of a wedding party the couple had the children enter before them – with flower wands and crowns. For the reception, we brought in a sheer chiffon canopy to shade the garden and adorned extra long tables with burlap table cloths topped with crisp white linens and etched glassware. Each place setting was completed with a menu with a place card clipped to it along with a sprig of fresh herbs. For florals, large footed bowls overflowed with greenery and flowers of all different colors and the end of the tables were capped with flower runners that reached the floor. To complete the theme, food was served family style, there was a gelato bar and of course plenty of Italian wines served tableside.

Mountain Vineyard Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

You might have caught on to this by now, but any time I see a sequined wedding gown, my heart skips a beat or two. This styled shoot from Rebecca Masters Photography, Allure with Decor, and Beyond the Garden Gate uses not one but two sparkly frocks, and pairs them with lush floral design and pomegranate accents for a look that’s more than perfect for chillier seasons.

From the photographer, Rebecca Masters Photography: Nestled in the beautiful Applegate Valley, Red Lily Vineyard’s “Stargazer Knoll” was the perfect location for our rustic yet elegant, autumn wedding shoot. With an abundance of towering oak trees, and the breathtaking Siskiyou mountains surrounding, what better to depict the little-known gem which is the Southern Oregon wine country.

Our focus was to show how simple and affordable it can be to create two equally beautiful looks for your wedding day. The sequin Badgley Mischka gown, which we rented from Rent the Runway, is a stunner no doubt but when paired with an airy tulle skirt from BHLDN, you have a dazzling and unique bridal look that will surely leave an impression.

Romantic Wedding at John James Audubon

Romantic Weddings

Whimsy, romance, glamour, vintage charm — this wedding from Maria Mack Photography has it all. Maria and Michael’s wedding in Pennsylvania was everything they could hope for, including a reception space completely decked out in colorful ribbons and two incredibly stunning gowns for the bride. Thank you Buttercup and Elevee Events for beautiful design work on this day!

From the bride, Maria: We really wanted a Whimsical Vintage Glamour feel. We wanted it to be beautiful and romantic, while making sure it really showed our personalities and personal style. Our venue had a beautiful, rustic, natural landscape which we designed the rest of the wedding around. We didn’t have a specific color scheme – we wanted it to be colorful with a mix of color with elegant pops of glamour – hence the sequin details on our bridal party, glamourous second gown, and twinkle lights throughout the space. We used mismatched china, a beautiful designed sweetheart table with a chandelier, and had our entire reception pavilion draped with colorful ribbon.

Oregon Garden Resort Wedding

Garden Weddings

We love when a bride knows exactly what she wants, and today’s bride knew from the very beginning that a garden wedding would be perfect for her big day. Jamie Rae Photography, Whitney Werts Events, and Swoon Floral Design all did phenomenal work bringing Chrissie and Michael’s dreams to reality, incorporating tons of dahlias and other beautiful blooms for a truly romantic feel.

From the bride, Chrissie: I always dreamt of having a garden wedding! I would dream of floral and trees surrounding my entire day. I also wanted to implement light colors, lace, and create a lot of decor items myself. I am so pleased to say my dream has come true! When we got engaged, my fiancé and I lived 5-10 minutes away from the Oregon Gardens resort. We both drove past it every single day. The week after we got engaged we talked about possible venue options. We both agreed that a Garden wedding was what we both wanted. I booked our venue at the Oregon Gardens for August 22, which was the ONLY day available for that year! We got so lucky!!!

I was able to make several DIY projects for my wedding! It made it such a personal thing for me. I designed my “Advice” box for the welcome table, created the reception center piece with round woods, doilies, vase buds, sewed together lace around every 2 mason jars per table, and many more small details for the reception tables. My Maid of Honor painted bible verses on stained wood planks for our isle decor. These wood planks were tied on white lace to hang on Shepard hooks for our ceremony aisle. Michael and his grandfather also built our ceremony cross. Michael and I stained it just a couple days before the wedding :)

From the Photographer, Jamie Rae Photography: Chrissie and Michael had a very special summer wedding. Warm winds blew smoke filled air from eastern forest fires, giving an extra glow to the Oregon Garden Resort and creating a unique and fun ambiance to photograph. Like Chrissie and Michael themselves, their day was filled with with an authentic and vibrant joy… joy for each other, of course, but also for their guests, family, and faith. Chrissie and Michael both took their wedding vows very seriously, and as a photographer who sees multiple weddings per year this commitment not only to each other but to the act and commitment of marriage left me extra inspired as I walk out my own marriage.

Italian Destination Wedding for a Wedding Planner

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Les Amis Photo

There’s no better way to kick off the week than with a destination wedding in Italy. The dream team of Les Amis Photo and Il Profumo Dei Fiori worked together on this beautiful wedding for couple Barbara and Michele. Barbara is a wedding planner herself with Four Nineteen Weddings, so it comes as little surprise that her day would be gorgeous from beginning to end!

Italian destination wedding for a wedding planner - photo by Les Amis Photo http://ruffledblog.com/italian-destination-wedding-for-a-wedding-planner

From the bride, Barbara: When you are a wedding planner specializing in destination weddings, planning your own destination wedding is actually quite an experience! For us, Italy was, without a doubt, the place to celebrate our marriage. Michele is Italian and I, well I just love everything about Italy. At the time of our engagement, we had been considering planning a trip with friends to the Puglia region, which is by far, one of my favorite places in Italy, and not as known as other Italy wedding destinations (like Tuscany or the Amalfi Coast). When looking for a place to rent for this trip, we came across the most stunning masseria in the Salento region, Masseria Torre Ruggeri, and upon seeing photos of it, we just knew, that that was where we had to have our wedding. Sight unseen, we booked the masseria before even telling anyone we were engaged. At first, I truly thought about handling every single aspect of the planning myself, against the most important advice I give all brides considering a destination wedding. About two months into the planning, I realized that I should actually follow my own advice if I wanted to really enjoy my wedding day (and not have it feel like work). I did not want to have one of Four Nineteen Weddings other planners have to work either, so I needed to find someone local that understood my vision and was OK with the fact that I was going to handle pretty much everything about the wedding except for the day-of logistics. I also needed them to help us finalize some details that were pending, and was so happy to find Katia and Francesco at Lecceventi, who were absolutely fantastic (and so very sweet)!

During the planning process, one of the questions my clients asked the most was “How did you decide how you wanted your wedding to be with all the inspiration and images you see every day for work?”. Truth is, it was very simple for me (I must say, my sweet husband let me do what I pleased in this regard). I knew that I wanted something simple but lovely, and to have the venue itself, the buildings, the citrus garden, the olive trees, the courtyard, the sky, be the center of attention. I was craving to doing a lot of DIY (mostly because doing all these little projects was, belive it or not, a bit of “therapy” for me in the midst of our crazy Costa Rican wedding season). I wanted to incorporate some blue printed fabric in the design and found some vintage blue batik textile on Etsy that became our design inspiration. After buying 40 meters of the fabric (and getting it shipped from Indonesia to Costa Rica), I went from considering making napkins out of them to finally deciding on using them as runners. Being a fan of mixing patterns, the fabric inspired me to buy every piece of blue hued patterned fabric I could get my hands on (pillow covers, scarves to use as highboy overlays, wraps to use as throws for the lounges…) The better part of a day was spent dip dyeing sixty plain cotton napkins in a not so subtle blue ombre design (this was probably my favorite project and also the one I loved the outcome of the most). Michele and I spent days making little wood signs and table numbers from scratch and actually worked on the wedding day making a tulle backdrop for the ceremony spot and hanging ribbon from chairs and trees in the citrus garden. I also designed all the paper goods, and with the help of Michele’s family, made the favors (little bottles of olive oil from olives grown in his uncle’s property, that double up as seating cards).

I really wanted our vendors to be inspired and not feel like they were having their creativity thwarted with a set idea of how I wanted thing to look. I truly believe that if you pick the vendors that are perfect for you, or those whose work you love, or with whom you feel a special connection (or let yourself be guided to those who are, which is the case of destination weddings, when you really have to trust your planner to find the perfect vendors for your vision), then you really can’t go wrong. We truly lucked out in that between our research and Katia & Francesco’s help, we had some pretty talented vendors on our side. The catering was absolutely spectacular (there was actually a guy making bocconcini LIVE at the cocktail hour); our sweet officiant, Victoria, who delivered a custom ceremony that left no dry eye in the house;, the live musicians were fabulous; our lighting designer/DJ did an awesome job with illuminating the already lovely space and an even better job of getting everyone on the dance floor… Last but not least, I am lucky that two of my best friends are a talented stylist and a fabulous makeup artist and that they so graciously gifted their time to me on my wedding day – believe it or not, I did not ask for a hair and makeup trial and the only direction I actually gave them was “braids” and “yes, I do want those fake eyelashes”.

We had the good fortune of having a quite a few of our family and close friends join us for the wedding, and most of them actually spent the whole week (or a good part of it) with us at the Masseria (we also rented the house next door, the lovely Masseria Fondo Paolo). In the end, what we wanted was our wedding to be more than just the wedding day itself (although that was one of the high points); we wanted it to be a unique experience for everyone, something that was not the typical Italian vacation but something that really put Italy, and more so the Salento region, in everyone’s hearts (which it most certainly did). We also opted to step away from tradition a bit. We did not have a wedding party or a wedding cake, my son walked me down the aisle, and I actually decided on using my engagement ring, that I love, as a wedding ring (and in the emotion of the moment, I actually gave my husband the wrong hand to put the ring on; and did not realize it until we were doing portraits!)… Ultimately, I think that the choices you make regarding your wedding day have to feel right for you, regardless of whether or not they adhere strictly to tradition or expectations. While a beautiful wedding is one of my favorite things in the world… I think the most important thing about a wedding is love… not only that shared by the you and your husband but that love that radiates from everyone around you.
