Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Martina Micko

Newlyweds Maryanne and Matt wanted a wedding that showcased the beauty of Southern California, and that’s precisely what they got with this woodland celebration put together by Sweet Emilia Jane and The Little Branch. The day kicked off with a tree-covered ceremony in the woods with sunlight peeking through, and culminated with a family-style dinner under bistro lights — all captured by Martina Micko Photography!

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!

Garden Party Wedding at Demetria Estate

Garden Weddings

Photos by:

onelove photography

Another onelove photography beauty and it takes place all in the majesty of the great outdoors at California’s Demetria Estate. Genevieve and Clark’s wedding is just so elegant and what I love the most about it is that despite hosting their big day outdoors, they pull in lovely, soft pops of color that simply work well with the vineyard surroundings. From the gray in Clark’s dapper suit to the sweet pink hue of Genevieve’s bridesmaids’ dresses and the dahlias in the centerpieces by Connor Casavan, it was all compiled so effortlessly by Emily Bowser. Enjoy this classic garden fête!

Hazelwood Photo

Today’s real wedding gives a whole new meaning to “the great outdoors.” Oregon couple Meng and Max celebrated their marriage beneath a woodsy canopy that was heavenly to behold. Hazelwood Photo embraced every natural backdrop (yes, that includes towering waterfalls and lakeside cliffs!) and Floral Sunshine was there to spruce up the bridal party with flower crowns for all. We especially love the way Gather Event Planning & Consultation and Something Borrowed tied in details like the gold speckled cake and the oversized chalkboard in lieu of paper programs.

Old City Philadelphia Wedding

Romantic Weddings

When you have a couple as fun as Onna and Chris, you know you’re in for a good time. Their day was nothing short of entertaining. From the top notch eatables to the lively reception bands (that’s right, there were TWO!) to the wedding parade that quite literally swept the streets, we know everyone had a great time. This sweet couple’s love for one another is evident from the start, and we’re so glad they personalized every bit of their celebration. Some of our favorite details include the flower-garnished fans that were swapped for bridesmaid bouquets and the wedding cake sporting soft watercolor brushstrokes. The ever-so-flawless Emily Wren Photography captured every second, so read on for the inside scoop!

Tangerine and Soft Blue Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

This is one color palette that really sticks out at you and with just the right maneuvering, you could certainly pull it off for all four seasons. One July Photography showed us the beauty of a vibrant tangerine and blue wedding shoot designed by Elm Street Social and we haven’t been able to shake off the elegant glam vibes this inspiration is radiating. Wallflower Designs not only sought out the prettiest sunset-colored orange garden roses and delicate pale blue hydrangeas, but also added in lovely dashes of seasonal fruits like apricots, cherries, and even an aubergine-hued plum for some color depth. We love this editorial’s versatility!

wedding ceremony decor - http://ruffledblog.com/tangerine-and-soft-blue-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, One July Photography: We know everyone has seen the 2016 Pantone Colors of the year – but have you seen it with a healthy dose of TANGERINE? From the vintage corvette, to the masterful floral textures, and hand drawn stationery elements – the romantic color palette was echoed throughout the day. Some fun details included: a great DIY seating card project (all you need is a copper pen, marble backsplash tiles, and some gorgeous handwriting!), a fabulous short haired bridal hairstyle, and a fruit and floral filled tablescape paired with painted church pews. Marla from Wallflower Designs is the queen of floral texture. She created the perfect blend of vibrant seasonal fruit with an eclectic array of florals. The brides bouquet was an organically composed masterpiece! Ashley from Paper Love Club created a beautiful suite of products: invitation suite, menu, hand-drawn map, just married sign, and more. Each element incorporated fine paper, watercolor, copper leaf, and custom calligraphy.

Fun tip: Our stylist, Jen from Elm Street Social, purchased a set of hexagon marble tiles typically used in a backsplash. These backsplash tiles were transformed into escort/seating cards when Ashley added gorgeous hand lettering with a copper pen. The romantic dress was created by up-and-coming designer Ellyn Goodman. The illusion back is a showstopper. Carly Pribich created a fresh-faced look with makeup application and hair styling from Jen Spair added the perfect balance of soft feminine romance and modern appeal. Check out that hair for short-haired brides! 

Heritage Prairie Farm is a farm-to-table venue nestled in the Chicago suburbs. This gorgeous location provided the perfect backdrop for a charming, romantic, and organic setting. Jen from Elm Street Social brought the vision together with her impeccable styling. She introduced perfectly paired tones, textures, and styling concepts that are fresh yet timeless. This real-life couple emoted so much JOY during this inspiration shoot. We are so blessed to capture this chapter in their love story!

Dinosaur Inspired Wedding at Fernbank Museum

Whimsical Weddings

What better venue for two self-proclaimed “big nerds” than a museum of natural history? Jade + Matthew Take Pictures captured the wedding day of Jackie and Jon, who filled their day with bright and colorful decor (need we point out the amazing floral design by Artistic Flowers?) to complement the museum’s own architecture. Don’t miss a single second of this one!

Dinosaur Inspired Wedding at Fernbank Museum - http://ruffledblog.com/dinosaur-inspired-wedding-at-fernbank-museum

From the bride, Jackie: Jon and I both have a lot of family, so we knew from the start we would be having a large wedding. With that in mind, we wanted a setting that would be large enough to suit all our guests and still have a lot of personality. We looked at a number of hotel ballrooms that all looked supremely bland, so the architecture of the museum was refreshing… Oh, and we are both big nerds (Jon just got his PhD in Computer Science and I am a major pop culture and science fiction fan) and we love dinosaurs, so that helped. =)

You will notice from the photos that we wanted a lot of bright, beautiful summer flowers — especially because I had originally hoped for an outdoor wedding, which ended up being impractical in Atlanta in July. The colors were actually picked to match the watercolor image on our invitations. Jon and I were living in New York while the wedding was being planned so Wayne, our wedding planner, designer and florist, chose all the color combinations and planned all the table layouts, including the glassware, tablecloths, chairs and a variety of other things I never would have thought of on my own.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Our strongest advice is to look at a lot of photos for ideas and go into any conversation prepared with your own opinions. Pinterest helped us find a lot of creative direction for small details. Definitely don’t be afraid to listen to others’ ideas for creative direction, but if you find something you love, stick to it!

Wedding Music:

Bride’s Processional: “Te Diem,” Charpentier
We had no real recessional music because we recessed to the sound of everyone ringing dozens of unique antique bells my mom had painstakingly sought out one by one over the past year from antique markets and junk fairs and put under every seat as a surprise. Very fun play on Jon’s last name. :)
First Dance: “Sea of Love,” Cat Power

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.

Santa Rosa Beach Wedding

Beach Weddings

While Texas always makes a lovely location for a wedding, newlyweds Jade and Dan knew they wanted the laid-back essence a beach wedding would provide. The couple headed to Florida with Sweet Julep Photography and Stems on their list to make their dream day a reality, which they accomplished easily with so many talented hands nearby. Let’s take a look!

Santa Rosa Beach Wedding

From the photographer, Sweet Julep Photography: When Jade originally contacted us about her Santa Rosa Beach wedding, we were like, “Oh heck yes!” But then we learned that she and Dan didn’t even live near Florida. They lived in Ft Worth, TX! Destination weddings are our absolute favorite, and we were in love with Jade from the very beginning. So with only email and Facebook as a means to get to know each other, we anxiously waited for the day to come when we could finally talk face to face with this girl!

Highlands House was the most quaint little bed & breakfast nestled back in the trees only a couple blocks away from Gulf Place. HH had a beautiful bridal suite with the most gorgeous, soft light. The white aesthetic of the house made the perfect backdrop for all of Jade’s colorful details. We were obsessed with Jade’s personal style and loved the color palette that she chose for her day. Our favorite feature of the property had to be the boardwalk through the natural area to the beach! We loved that you could go from a modern B&B to a lush, green lawn to an overgrown boardwalk to the sandy Gulf coast. It wasn’t your every day, average beach rental!

The guys chose to get ready at a condo about a block down the road. We had the most amazing weather on this day, so we really enjoyed that we were able to walk back and forth between the two locations! Per usual, the guys were relaxed and watching baseball until about 30 minutes before the ceremony. Jade and Dan chose to not see each other before the ceremony, so we had to do most all of the photos after the ceremony, which made for some gorgeous images. Everyone was so light-hearted and happy that getting beautiful pictures was effortless. As we headed back to the house for the reception, we loved that you could stand on the porch and watch the whole setting on the lawn while still seeing the bright blue colors of the ocean. The sun dipped below the horizon pretty quickly, making the most perfect atmosphere for dancing under the string lights.

Intimate Garden Wedding Ceremony

Garden Weddings

While we love a no holds barred wedding day with an elaborate reception, Danna and Gib’s wedding makes it clear that all you really need are two people madly in love (and maybe some cake). Emily March Photography celebrated the couple’s garden wedding ceremony — decorated beautifully by TreBella Florist — which was followed up with some tasty eats and tequila shots. What better way to celebrate saying yes to forever?

From the photographer, Emily March: Danna and Gib had the definition of a whirlwind engagement. Gib proposed this past February, only a few months before getting deployed overseas with the Army. Too excited to wait to get married, the pair opted for an intimate civil ceremony barely a month after Gib popped the question!

Ethereal Victorian Inspired Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Victorian style is always full of flair and such creative inspiration, from the colors and the floral arrangements to the concepts. The ideas are endless and Emcee Studio Photographie captured such a stunning take on this always-breathtaking trend. Complete with a divine high-necked dress and a delicious naked wedding, Wood and Rose added to the mix with their centerpieces and a dreamy jewel-toned bouquet made of roses and greenery that looks freshly-plucked from an English garden.

vintage wedding ideas - photo by Emcee Studio Photographie http://ruffledblog.com/ethereal-victorian-inspired-wedding-ideas

From the photographer, Emcee Studio Photographie: This photo shoot is inspired by a deep vibrant color palette with golden undertone against a nostalgic backdrop that contain pieces carefully curated by Fox and Finch Vintage Rentals. This shoot is designed to have an ethereal texture, accentuated by Victorian style details such as the bridal gown and cocktail dress. Wood and Rose puts together a dazzling bridal bouquet that mesmerizes you with luscious roses on a wild, unruly yet stunning base made of peppermint willow, leucadendron, fern and eucalyptus. The stern but elegant thistles add daintiness to the arrangement, bringing delicacy to the bouquet without taking away the fullness of the more voluminous flowers.

Sometimes you just need heaps and heaps of pink and loveliness to stare at, like this bridal inspiration shoot by JOJO Photography and FilmAlchemy Styled pulled out all of the stops and drew up a shoot with all shades of pink imaginable, from the softest blush to the sweetest cotton candy pink, and further down to the deep magenta shades. Sumptuous blooms and botanicals were strewn all over the place by rose bredl, only adding to the whole femininity of the shoot. Pairing the pinks with a cool tone of gray paper goods gave it such a classic feel. This is certainly one shoot that left us wanting more of it!

From the photographer, Jennifer of JOJO Photography and Film: I created these images in collaboration with some amazingly talented female creatives in Columbus, Ohio. The shoot was planned to specifically feature the new Bohindi Bride line of accessories. The look was made to be soft and free, as well as bohemian but glamourous.

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!

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.

Simi Valley Ranch Wedding

Modern Weddings

Located at the stunning Hummingbird Nest Ranch, newlyweds Sarah and Houman had their Simi Valley ranch wedding with the help of Louise & Third Events’ expertise and Wisteria Lane Flower Shop‘s floral know-how. Photographed by the amazing Brian Leahy Photography, the venue was done up so well that stepping into it post-arranging felt like you were stepping into old world Western Europe. Al fresco dining was the obvious choice here and luckily, mother nature kept herself at bay so no tents were needed. Bistro lights were strung around the reception and mahogany tables were outfitted with floral table runners of roses, ranunculus, and silver dollar eucalyptus.

Mermaid Bride Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Mermaids are all the rage right now. Now that warm weather has dawned (for most of us!), the coral pinks and seafoam greens are ideal for the coming seasons. While I have seen an increase in mermaid trends, I haven’t seen them used for weddings or wedding inspiration until now! Chickadee Events and Virginia Ashley Photography certainly put their hard work into this shoot, and I love that the mermaid inspiration really comes through in such an elegant way. The Proper Petal added to the feel by using bright colors in the table blooms with small vases filled with solo stems of flowers; my favorite being those beautiful orchids. Topping it off, of course, was the mermaid silhouette wedding dress that stole the whole show.

From the photographer, Virginia Ashley Photography: When planning the styled shoot, I wanted to go for something mermaid-like! I have been refining my brand and what I want my style to reflect. I wanted this shoot to be a great reflection of my new brand and the type of couples I love! I was thankful for the sweet couple I had for this shoot! Gabrielle was the perfect mermaid inspiration and looked like a dream in the wedding dress!

Chic Austin Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

When a wedding party kicks off with a mariachi band and food trucks, you know you’re in for a good time. This was exactly the case for Amy and Bob’s wedding, whose Austin celebration is full of so many whimsical details and a grey lace gown you’ll fall head over heels for. Thank you to Julie Wilhite Photography, CLINK, and Merveille Events for your parts in this beautiful day!

chic Austin wedding - photo by Julie Wilhite Photography http://ruffledblog.com/eclectic-outdoor-texas-wedding

Amy and Bob got married last October at the beautiful Laguna Gloria, a contemporary art museum in Austin, TX. From the start, they wanted to make their wedding unique and something their guests would truly enjoy. The ceremony was held in the amphitheater and it could not have been a more perfect day for these two to get married. As Amy’s sisters walked her down the aisle to “Ho Hey” by The Lumineers, the entire group went silent. It was a moment no one will ever forget! Afterwards, guests were greeted into cocktail hour by Mariachis, Peached Tortilla’s food truck and passion fruit signature cocktails being passed to all.

Arroyo Grande Barn Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Danielle Poff

What’s better than a cute bride in glasses? How about an equally cute, relaxed wedding day in Arroyo Grande, California with tons of personal touches, for starters. Danielle Poff, Planimation Events, and Lori Boe Floral Design helped bring Lauren and Ben’s vision to life, which meant a laid-back atmosphere that still brought in a bit of fanciness.

Arroyo Grande barn wedding - photo by Danielle Poff http://ruffledblog.com/arroyo-grande-barn-wedding

From the bride, Lauren: I think our wedding is best described as a relaxed but upscale gathering. I really tried to ensure our family, friends and ourselves felt as comfortable as any other night of the week. But keeping the look and feel of our wedding a notch above casual. I made sure that every aspect truly represented “us”, which made it so much fun and so easy to plan. We put touches of our rabbits on the confetti pops, we brought in a folk band to dance to, I kept my glasses on and we drank a lot of beer and ate sandwiches.

Spring Morning Inspired Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

If you’re a lover of nature like me, you won’t be able to resist this beautiful shoot from Kristen Weaver Photography, An Affair to Remember Weddings, and Bluegrass Chic. The tablescape alone is a complete showstopper, featuring a handcrafted table covered in moss and succulents and topped off with a glass cover for a unique look we’ve yet to see anywhere else. Top it off with exceptionally stunning bridal gowns from Hayley Paige and Sarah Seven and we’re smitten!

spring morning inspired wedding ideas - photo by Kristen Weaver Photography http://ruffledblog.com/rock-quarry-inspired-wedding-ideas

From Kristen Weaver Photography: In the early stages of planning, I felt inspired by pastel watercolors, succulents and earthy plants, and natural crystals. I developed this shoot concept as my final project to complete my internship with Kristen Weaver Photography. The table for this shoot was truly one-of-a-kind. The base was completely handcrafted. The inside layer between the glass and base included a Moroccan-esque tile table runner, and was filled with an array of succulents and mossy greens.

Old Charm New York Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

There’s a lot to love about today’s styled shoot from Julia Elizabeth Photography, Polka Dot Events, and Rose Red and Lavender, but at the top of the list is how very “New York” the whole thing feels. Architectural elements, a chic nearly monochrome color palette, and a super stylish couple bright everything together for a shoot that encapsulates the best of both old and new New York.

old charm New York wedding inspiration - photo by Julia Elizabeth Photography http://ruffledblog.com/old-charm-new-york-wedding-inspiration

From Julia Elizabeth Photography: When Tracey Goldstein of Polka Dot Events and I first started discussing the feel for our shoot, we touched upon a growing trend with her clients requesting a wedding design that is inherently New York City without being too theme-y or outdated. Once we visited 190 North, a newly opened Williamsburg, Brooklyn venue with its modern Brooklyn architecture mixed with vintage New York accents, our vision of combining old and new came to life, hence the name “Old Charm, New York.”

We gathered some of our favorite NYC vendors and gave them a little background on our “couple”: Late 20s to early 30-something modern Brooklynites, throwing an intimate winter wedding at 190 North. They love how the space’s soft color palette and wainscoting plays off the industrial garage door windows and brick accent walls, and want to highlight these features with minimalist floral and décor that is both sophisticated and understated. Their color palette is dusty blue, gray, white with accents of gold and natural greenery. Then we let all the vendors do their thing! Park Slope’s Lion in the Sun custom designed the stationery suite with a Brooklyn map overlay sitting atop a simple cardstock designed with a nod to 190 North’s geometric door patterns and mix of modern and traditional fonts. The monogram was designed by Allison Steinfeld and the black envelopes were graced with white hand calligraphy by Laurel Hansen.

Stylist Allison Koehler dressed the bride in two Limor Rosen gowns that brought our her modern day edge while still holding onto a classic bridal look. First a romantic low back dress with a long lace train for the ceremony, followed by a playful beaded silk gown for the reception. Her hair and makeup was styled natural and soft by Stacey and Gabby of Once Upon a Bride and all the jewelry and rings were supplied by Mociun in Williamsburg. Not to be outdone, the groom wore a midnight blue tuxedo from The Black Tux. Our florist Rose, Red and Lavender created an asymmetrical sculptural backdrop for the ceremony made from greenery and gold leaf accents. The same look was carried into the bride’s simple posy bouquet, and combined with white flora and succulents. Post-ceremony, we took photographs in front of the classic 1969 Checker Taxicab from FilmCars and amongst the beautifully refurbished vintage chairs by Jessica Allyn.

Our vision for the tablescape was simple yet edgy. We selected metal frame barn tables and gunmetal tolix chairs from Broadway Party Rentals, and we dressed them with a dusty blue satin runner, black and white coup china, crystal stemware and a mix of ultra-modern and ornate gold flatware. For the tablescape we used geometric gold candleholders and simple white roses in bud vases from RRL. Dish Food & Events created the gorgeous (and delicious) charcuterie spread. And what’s a wedding without a yummy dessert bar? Our adorable simple cake designed by Luckybird Bakes was the perfect compliment to the incredible dessert corner by Erin Emmett of Sweet Pistachio. We’re so proud of all the talented New York City vendors we were able to bring together to create such a sought after look. Thank you for helping us bring the vision to life!

Easy Romantic Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Ben Q Photography

What better way to end the week than with pretty brides on a beach? This inspiration shoot comes from Ben Q Photography, Events by Kristin, and R Love Floral Designs, who created this waterside scene full of lush floral design, delicious treats, and three lovely brides decked out in stunning gowns from some of today’s top designers.

easy romantic wedding inspiration - photo by Ben Q Photography http://ruffledblog.com/easy-romantic-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Ben Q Photography: The shoot concept was about a modern standard of beauty that embraces diversity. We shot three models who are each uniquely gorgeous. The backdrop was a calm sandy lake in Texas. R Love Floral used lush eucalyptus, flat fern and Italian ruscus greenery with fragrant garden roses, hellebores and lisianthus to create very loose, untamed, and natural arrangements that would complement well with the organic feel of the lake shoot.

For the Dessert Table, Amuse Bake Shop created sweets featuring color, shape, and texture, a treat for the eyes as well as the palette. Inspired by fresh fruits and natural ingredients the desserts included Poached Pears wrapped in Pastry, Peach Blackberry and Orange Upside-Down Cakes, a Toasted Lemon Meringue Cake, Caramel Nut Bars, Individual Berry & Pecan Pies, and unique Mini Cakes. One of our models is an artist and illustrated watercolors of our other two models.

Romantic Santorini Elopement

Elopements

Photos by:

Julia Kaptelova

Is it ever not a good day for an elopement in Santorini? This beautiful wedding from Julia Kaptelova, Rosmarin Weddings and Events, and Fabio Zardi takes us to our favorite Greek island for the most intimate elopement of Inna and Ilya. The pastel color palette just happens to be the icing on the cake here!

romantic Santorini elopement - photo by Julia Kaptelova http://ruffledblog.com/romantic-santorini-elopement

From the designer, Anna of Rosmarin Weddings and Events: Lately it happens often that the couple wants to avoid big wedding with lots of guests. In this case, the best solution appears in intimate wedding just for two, when two loving people in an atmosphere of infinite romance pronounce the most important words for each other. That was the story of Inna and Ilya. They chose for the wedding ceremony a small church on a lonely cliff on the most beautiful island on earth – Santorini.

Inna, as a perfectionist, wanted to create an unforgettable day. That’s why she has paid great attention to details, decor and color palette. The choice fell on a peach – a gentle, very wedding color, green – we used a lot of ivy, fragrant eucalyptus, which is rich in Santorini, and as accents – purple, plum. Thin flowing fabrics, exquisite details, vintage dishes and fruit table decoration – all these made style truly gentle and romantic. Song of couple – John Legend’s “All of me”, and the main phrase of it — “All of me loves all of you” — became the leitmotif for the wedding paper goods, which perfectly fit into the overall style. Inna ordered pillowcases as well which decorated the bride’s morning.

There was so much tenderness that day! The beautiful bride looked incredibly elegant, and at the same time romantic. By the way the dress was sewn to order, and it is often the best solution when your dream dress is impossible to find in stores. Ilya looked like a character from old Hollywood films – perfectly fitting suit, accessories and, of course, a bow tie in the tone of the wedding palette. We organized a dinner on the terrace of the hotel room, and by tradition it started in the most romantic time on Santorini – when the sun had almost disappeared behind the horizon and painted the island in ocher colors. It was a wedding the couple dreamed of, and the memories of this day will remain in their hearts for a lifetime. No doubt about it!

Before we head off for the weekend, we want to share one more beautiful Valentine’s Day inspired shoot with you all. This gem is from Amilia Photography and Cedarwood Weddings and provides no shortage of stunning ideas for you to fall in love with. Just take one glance at these images and you’ll know that red has never looked so good before!

Valentines Day romance inspiration - photo by Amilia Photography http://ruffledblog.com/valentines-day-romance-inspiration

From the event and floral designers, Cedarwood Weddings: When the Cedarwood Weddings design team dreams of fabled romance, we dream in velvety reds and soft pinks: the epitome of feminine allure. We combined a lush floral design in shades of red with heirloom pieces, gilded frames hanging whimsically from tree limbs, antique brass candlesticks, and a vintage dusty-rose armchair set in our rolling meadow on an oriental rug. A combination of the natural beauty of Historic Cedarwood’s 50-acre estate and design elements reminiscent of glamorous soirees complement the timeless theme of romantic love.

Standing as an altar, an antique glass paneled door frames the hills of our Tennessee countryside estate at the top of stone steps. Capitalizing on the natural beauty for an utterly romantic al fresco ceremony, the altar is accented by lush and bold floral design. Adorned in an ethereal Hayley Paige gown with a Georgette slit, Jimmy Choo suede booties, and her grandmother’s mink fur, the bride has a perfect vintage-modern look. A vintage Louis Vuitton lock bracelet completed her ensemble, and a statement flower crown and bold red lip carry though the feminine style of the 40s and 50s.

Moody Pink Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Hello Romance! This elegant photoshoot, captured by Kaysha Weiner Photographer, shows how glitz and glam fuse with elegance oh so perfectly. This combination of smoky blues, hues of pinks and metallic tones work for any season. Brilliantly designed by The Joy Parade and adorned with gorgeous florals by Rebelle Fleurs, every little detail has the perfect touch of glamour.

moody pink wedding inspiration - photo by Kaysha Weiner Photography http://ruffledblog.com/moody-pink-wedding-inspiration

From the designer, The Joy Parade: This concept was pulled together after I began tossing around ideas for winter color palettes. Soft light pink with complementary neutral colors are really popular and they’re used all year around – but how can pink transition in a new way for winter? I liked the idea of pulling in the popular shades of pink and blush and ground those a bit more with greenery, and neutrals of smoky blue, brass, and gunmetal. The result is unexpected, romantic, clean, timeless, and a little bit moody.

Bright and Romantic Bridal Inspiration

Wedding Design

When you have a bride and gown this gorgeous, it’s a shame not to build an entire shoot around them. Carolann Morgan Photography and Whitney Farnsworth Calligraphy and Design put together this organic and minimalist inspired wedding scene for Molly’s bridal portraits, full of brilliant backdrops and vignettes guaranteed to stun.

From the designer, Whitney Farnsworth: When you have a bride who is a natural born model, you just have to jump on the opportunity to create a inspirational shoot around her bridal portraits. And with a stunning new venue opening up in town it’s not hard to choose where they ought to take place. The uniqueness of Molly’s bridal photos lies in the ease in which she fit into the bright and airy backdrop of One Eleven East. There is nothing more exciting for a creative then to start with a simple white canvas knowing you can head in any direction. Without taking away from the original 1893 architecture, we created a minimalist shoot that incorporated the uniqueness of the space with the bride’s style.

Inspiration for the shoot stemmed from the incredible blank canvas that is One Eleven East. We love the historic and timelessness the space provides and decided to go with an organic wintry theme for Molly’s bridal portraits. We chose a simple color palate of whites and greenery, with the only pops of red showing up in the bride’s lip color and cozy chair. The bride wore a one of a kind ensemble, which she pieced together herself. The top, from For Love and Lemons, was paired perfectly with the romantic skirt from BHLDN. We wanted to incorporate a warm cozy feel, which we brought in through antique brass candlesticks, antique tables and chairs, and a red velvet chair from Revive Vintage Rentals. The scripted banner, created by Whitney Farnsworth Calligraphy, holds an eloquent love letter dated back to the 1800’s from a soldier writing home to his dear wife. The letter is a reminder of the fierceness of love and the bond which holds us together.

White, being the focal color, was carried throughout the shoot with the florals, paper goods, table settings, and beautifully scripted banner hung on the white brick wall. The walls, which reached 15 feet high from the 122-year-old pine floors, begged for a greenery wreath large in size. The wreath hung roughly five feet in diameter and became the focal point of the space. A large organic bridal bouquet in hues of whites and garland strung across the table and the backs of chairs blended together to create the simple and organic look of the shoot. Carolann Morgan captured the entire day so beautifully. It was such a joy working with this team of creatives!

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.

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.
