Romantic Botanical Garden Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Today, we’re heading into Chicago to find some lovely garden wedding inspiration in the midst of this beautiful and bustling city. With Beso Weddings & Events at the forefront of the conceptualizing and Kristin La Voie Photography behind the lens, it’s no doubt this styled shoot was going to be anything but amazing. It’s full of rich ruby reds to start off with, and it’s rounded off with impressive color accents like gold and champagne that Natural Beauties Floral, Inc. were clearly beyond thrilled to play with; those floral designs are out of this world!

From the photographer, Kristin: When we initially sat down with Gabriela of Beso Weddings & Events, we knew we wanted to create a European-inspired wedding look set in a venue that was not your typical Chicago scene. Chicago Botanic Gardens has numerous gardens, each with its own personality and style, and their English walled garden was the exact look we were after; romantic, colorful, and intimate. Every detail was chosen with this precise vision in mind and thoughtfully designed and executed perfectly by Gabriela and our amazing team of vendors.

Even if your wedding is set to take place in the fall or winter months, white is still a beautiful color to use in and around your wedding decor to enhance your color palette of choice. We love the concept of using stark white crossback chairs like these at an indoor or outdoor wedding ceremony. It makes any ceremony chair decor really pop, especially with those deep and moody, cool weather colors seen here.

Did we mention how much we love patterned linens on wedding tables? It’s so much more eye-catching than your classic and crisp white tablecloth, and it provides another glam touch of added style to your wedding tablescapes.

Romantic Blue and Gold Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

The mix of colors in today’s styled shoot from Lindsay Hackney Photography and Apotheca Flower and Tea Shoppe is so fantastic, we think it pretty much has us hypnotized. Rich blues, crisp golds, soft lavender, and minty green — how can it get better than that? Of course, the bride’s Vera Wang gown is also stealing the show with endless layers of tulle that help make this shoot one of the most romantic we’ve seen in a while.

Romantic Blue and Gold Wedding Inspiration- photo by Lindsay Hackney Photography http://ruffledblog.com/autumn-styled-shoot-at-aldworth-manor

From the photographer, Lindsay Hackney Photography: Autumn in New Hampshire is known for its vivid reds, but for this shoot we were inspired to explorer a cooler fall palette. Moody Prussian blue, minty green and lavender made for exciting and unique foundational colors with bits of gold, peach, and orange keeping things classic.

We were also totally inspired by our venue, the incredible Aldworth Manor. There is no place quite like it in all of New Hampshire, or even New England! The Tuscan-style estate had fallen into disrepair and is being lovingly restored to host weddings and events. The elegance of the Manor’s original features combined with the shabby-chic feel of its current state made for an exquisite backdrop. A gorgeous Vera Wang gown from Borrowing Magnolia and divine floral design from Apotheca Flower Shoppe finished pulled everything together to perfection!

Simply White Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Studio EMP

For me, there’s nothing more calming than an all-white color palette. Studio EMP and Found Vintage Rentals recently gathered to showcase some of Found’s beautiful rental pieces, accenting them with soft ivory blooms, white pumpkins, and neutral linens for a look that’s totally monochrome and striking in its simplicity.

From Found Vintage Rentals: Benjamin Moore announced Simply White as 2016 color of the year, and we’re not at all mad about it! There is something very relaxing about an all white palette that we just can’t get enough of. So pull up a cozy European homespun linen bench, unpack Grandma’s heirloom crystal, and fill ironstone vessels with blooms of white, and enjoy a cozy Christmas dinner around our Domaine Table. Simply (perfectly) White.

Willow Creek Winery Wedding

DIY Weddings

When a baker gets married, rest assured the dessert table is going to be a whopper. Bride Toni owns her own bake shop with her sister, and the two went all out designing sweet treats for her wedding to groom Josh. The entire day was a creative fall wedding to remember, with the help of the talented Jessica Hendrix Photography and Pocket Full of Posies.

From the bride, Toni: Our wedding took place at Willow Creek Winery in cape may New Jersey. Kevin Celli was our guide and planner and did an amazing job with helping us out in any way possible! For my wedding I imagined a rustic but colorful and creative vibe. It was fall, but I wanted to incorporate peacock blue/green with bright reds and oranges. Some gold accents. I did a lot of my own crafting, like stained crates handmade seating arrangements signage, etc.. I handmade my invitations and save the dates, at each setting. There was a clementine with a leaf cutout with hand gold embossed names!

One of the biggest things I did for the day was the wedding cakes and all the desserts! I own my own shop in Haddonfield, New Jersey called Sweet T’s Bakeshop. My sister and own the shop together and made a ton of desserts for my day! Two cakes including three different flavors: blood Orange velvet, sweet potato with spiced pears, and baked apple cinnamon dolce! We also made individual apple pies in mason jars, French macaroons with hand painted gold spiders (it was Nov. 1) mini pumpkin cheesecakes with ginger snaps crust and ice cream cookie sandwiches with homemade oatmeal raisin cookies and Bassetts pumpkin ice cream. We also had an array of vintage glass bottle and jars scattered everywhere in tables.

I was in love with my floral arrangements by Pocket Full of Posies in Galloway NJ. Beth Ann did a fabulous job! When my flowers arrived at my hotel suit while we were getting ready I was so so so excited and blown away! I had some succulents, orchids, eucalyptus, deep purple Calla lilies, blue thisle, red berries, and some really pretty bright orange and red needle looking flowers!! In love! Oh yeah, I also had sunflowers with the petals picked off! My table arrangements had turquoise lanterns and white lanterns scattered with candle and some of the antique bottles had a flower or two. There were also some blue mason jars with flowers.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? My advice for other couples is to try and make it special for yourselves. Don’t worry about what other people think. Put your love and every into little details and it will become something special!

Cool Toned Autumn Wedding

Elegant Weddings

Photos by:

Odalys Mendez

Chances are, when you think of a fall wedding you already have a certain vision in your head. Today’s wedding turns all your preconceived notions of a fall wedding upside down, using a cool color palette instead of warm tones to create a look that’s utterly fresh and inspired. Odalys Mendez, Chancey Charm, and Stylish Stems all did absolutely beautiful work here!

From Sarah of Chancey Charm: Lauren Smith and Melvin Chu were the sweetest couple. The Bride, having an interior design background, really thought through every detail with us and was up for the challenge of gathering and perfecting the details with some incredibly creative friends. Ultimately, Beth Claterbaugh of Stylish Stems was able to perfectly bring her dream and Sarah Chancey’s inspiration sketches to life with a romantic backdrop for the ceremony and garlands gracing the long dinner tables at the reception.

The bride and groom really wanted to incorporate a nod to their home, San Fransisco, which was accomplished with a riverside reception under string lights by Goodwin Events and a muted blue color palette. It was a night of food, joy, dancing, and laughter. Truly an escape from reality for guests who enjoyed riverside chats and drinks in the sunset.

Stylish and Light Fall Wedding

Modern Weddings

While we love our dark and moody color palettes for autumn, we absolutely adore that this couple took a brighter and airy approach to their fall wedding. Cheery reds, light pinks, and crisp whites all come together for Abby and Tommy’s beautiful day, which was pulled off with the help of wonderful vendors including Sara & Rocky Photography, A Vintage Affair Events & Rentals, and Park Floral Design.

stylish and light fall wedding - photo by Sara and Rocky Photography http://ruffledblog.com/stylish-and-light-fall-wedding

From the event designers, A Vintage Affair Events & Rentals: This delightful and gorgeous wedding featured a bright and bold color palette using a colorful red, blush, gold, and ivory as the main colors. The colors were able to pop out against the blank canvas that is Blanc while seamlessly harmonizing with the greenery around the venue to create an organic yet vibrant feel. The couple decided they wanted to carry over their initials from their invitations to the wedding itself. In order to do this they enlisted the help of Lighting and Design by Scott to create marquee lights of their initials and an ampersand. The marquee lights created a unique and modern backdrop to their ceremony, as the couple stood in front of the lights for their special moment.

On their way down the aisle the handsome and might we say adorable ring bearers carried “hip hip” and “hooray” flags. Though only a small detail, the bride loved this idea so much she chose to have the flags recreated as mini drink stirrers so guests could enjoy them with their beverages. Abby and Tommy’s ceremony was incredibly heartwarming as both of their dads officiated it. Tommy’s dad began so that Abby’s dad could walk his daughter down the aisle and then take a minute to soak it all in before concluding the ceremony. It was so personal and so lovely, everyone was smiling from ear to ear the entire time. Showing off their bright and fun personalities, when the ceremony finished, instead of turning around and walking down the aisle, they made their way back in style… by dancing down the aisle.

To carry on the theme of the ampersand, Tommy and Abby used handmade ampersand magnets to hold guests’ watercolor place cards. These magnets then doubled as the couple’s favors. The reception room was filled with beautiful wood tables which were adorned with lovely wild, loose, textural arrangements to keep the feeling more organic. There was also seasonal fruit to complete the look which tied in the overall farm to table ambiance the couple wished to design. Seasonal blooms like dahlias were brought in to correspond with the beginning of the fall season! The florist also used Vining greens in order to “connect” the tables and make the room feel more integrated and natural. For dessert guests enjoyed a s’mores flavored cake made by the bride’s friend. They also had ice cream sandwiches served on an adorable pink bike.

Fantastic Mr Fox Wedding Inspiration

Sarah & Ben

Here at Ruffled we’re longtime fans of all things Wes Anderson, so we were delighted to see that photographers Sarah & Ben share the same love! They put together a truly incredible styled shoot inspired by Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox, bringing along Ever After Vintage Weddings for event design and 2Birds Events on floral design.

From the photographers, Sarah & Ben: As huge Wes Anderson fans, this project was a total labor of love for us and we are so happy with how everything came together! We adore how perfectly so many of the details from the movie worked their way into the details, from the cider jug to the blueberry favors, down to the fact the the ever so amazing Oh Hello Events even included Mrs. Fox’s dress pattern as the invitation liner!

We found a perfect forest to shoot in, with tons of pine needles pulling in the fall feeling color palette of the movie (which is hard to find here in Florida!) and Ever After Vintage Weddings did a beautiful job of setting up an intimate feast in the forest. Then, just when our hearts felt like they could burst from the stunning sight of it all, things were kicked up another notch with amazing florals from 2Birds Events (this bouquet is fall perfection!) and a unique two bun up-do for the bride that had us squealing with excitement. There really is no other word for this shoot but fantastic :)

Tulle & Grace

Today’s shoot from Tulle & Grace takes a simple formula — a darling couple in love, an eye-catching gown, and show-stopping scenery — and makes it absolutely shine. It’s an absolutely perfect anniversary shoot for fall, and we have no doubt it will inspire all you autumn brides out there planning your big day now. Of course, we have to mention the flowers from Forage & Fleur, because that wild bouquet is truly the stuff of dreams.

Industrial Romantic Fall Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

With its dramatic dark tones and pops of shimmering gold, this styled shoot from Christina Block Photography and Ruby Reds Floral is a perfect reminder of why we love autumn so much. There are not one but two stunning gowns from Inbal Dror used here — one strapless and one longsleeve lace — and a delicious array of bundt cakes and desserts for you to feast your eyes on.

industrial romantic fall wedding inspiration - photo by Christina Block Photography http://ruffledblog.com/industrial-romantic-fall-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Christina Block: This styled shoot was planned to have every detail & element to flawlessly fit with one another. I worked one on one with Inbal Dror & used 2 of their couture bridal gowns, which are mind blowing as is. All the vendors I got together are some of the best in the industry… from the place settings, to the floral… baked goods, location and so forth, everything was beautiful & I think you will agree. Some of the vendors we used were Inbal Dror [as I mentioned prior], Wish Vintage Rentals, Trumpet & Horn, The Mrs Box, Silk and Willow, Graceline and so many more. The shoot also takes place in the old Barnett Building which is a historical building in Downtown Jacksonville… a perfect back drop for the shoot. Styling is my second love & I was very pleased how this shoot came together.

Vintage Pennsylvania Estate Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

The More We See

The More We See and Love n’ Fresh Flowers are quite the talented pair, so it’s little wonder we love this next wedding as much as we do. A good place to start is bride Ashley’s amazing two-piece wedding gown by Carol Hannah, which has us breathless with its blush pink billowy skirt.

vintage Pennsylvania estate wedding - photo by The More We See http://ruffledblog.com/vintage-pennsylvania-estate-wedding

From the bride, Ashley: When we thought about the day, we envisioned a celebration that was relaxed and a bit untraditional with lots of details that felt like “us” – in the end just a really great party that celebrated how much we love each other and our family and friends. We wanted everyone to feel like they were at an energetic dinner party with a few extra special touches. We looked for a venue that would provide a beautiful backdrop, had a lot of different options (including a plan B rain plan which we thankfully didn’t end up needing, even though it was close!), and that would let us add our own touches. We found that at the Inn Barley Sheaf Farm, which even had mini horses – Sean’s favorite animal!

Bouquet recipe: My bouquet had dahlias, lace hydrangea, ninebark, lisianthus, wild grasses, and fragrant herbs that were all grown organically especially for our wedding at Love n’ Fresh’s flower farm in Philadelphia. It was hand tied with fabric from my skirt, leather and a gold brooch.

Our close family and bridal party all stayed at the Inn for the entire weekend and we took advantage of all of the beautiful areas on the property for everything from the rehearsal dinner – a clam bake as a nod to Sean’s hometown at the beach with a bonfire, s’mores and lawn games – to the after party and a laid back Sunday brunch. Our celebration was intimate and relaxed with curated details that enhanced the rustic/vintage setting. The color scheme was very natural and inspired by the property and surrounding area. We started with creams, greens and blushes and accented it with pops of oxblood, wood, other natural elements, and sparkly gold (so much gold!). We had so much fun incorporating details that were things we loved or reminded us of favorite memories – like waffles in the welcome boxes because we met in the Netherlands or having homebrewed beer named after our puppy as favors.

We had a ton of DIY projects and had so much fun spending time together doing them in the months leading up to the wedding. We built the ceremony arch as well as several large wooden signs that we placed throughout the ceremony and reception (Ashley & Sean welcome sign; ‘Can I Get a Witness’ sign; bar menu; Mr. & Mrs. chair backs). For the ceremony space, we designed and made pillows to warm up the pews, and added blankets which actually came in pretty hand on the chilly October day. I surprised Sean with the sign our nephews carried that had his nickname for me. We designed and printed the programs and menus and made streamers with wedding bells for guests to wave after our kiss. For the reception space we DIY’d the escort cards and gold leaf place cards, a marquee ‘BAR’ sign, tons of votive holders, and walkway luminaries. My mom taught me to cross-stitch when I was little so the two of us sewed all the table numbers. One of our hobbies is homebrewing and we made beer for the favors and designed the labels. Last, we filled guest welcome boxes with treats from the Netherlands, New York, Philadelphia and Kentucky – all special places to us and our family.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? First, choose great vendors. We count ourselves incredibly lucky that we had a venue, florist, photographers, and videographers that truly got our vision and translated it even better than we imagined. Because we chose to plan ourselves, having fantastic people working with us throughout the process meant we got a stress-free day where we could concentrate on each other and our guests instead of whether flowers were in the right place. Second, choose what feels right for you and follow your instincts throughout the planning process – whether that’s traditional or something that makes your parents think you are crazy. We had three family members and friends perform our ceremony, which ended up being our very favorite part of the day, and had cheeseburgers and tater tot poutine for dinner. Last, during the wedding, slow down time as much as you can. Everyone always talks about how insanely fast it goes, and it’s true. Try to be present and take little moments to step back and soak in how much love and support is in that room for you and your partner.

Stormy Day Plane Hangar Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

When you’ve got more than enough love to go around, a rainy wedding day can’t put a damper on your spirits. Lisa and Brad exchanged vows at the bride’s father’s airplane hangar, which was the perfect unique touch for this couple — even on the stormiest of days. Sarah Tamagni Photography, We Do Designs, and Lisa’s Flor Decor also put their marks on the day, taking care of the images, design, and flowers respectively!

From the photographer, Sarah of Sarah Tamagni Photography: Lisa and Brad wanted to be married out at her father’s plane hangar, a place she loves and has been a big part of her life. It was a stormy October day surrounded by close family and friends. There were so many details at this charming cropduster’s daughter’s wedding. The aisle was lined with layers of pampas grass plugged into huge wooden stumps with garden roses and Rice stock. The ceremony backdrop was a garland of pampas grass and rice stock hanging from fabric strategically placed out on the airstrip. Flanked by Gray and white striped pillars holding gorgeous flowers in shades of yellow.

Hand made vintage style wooden planes landed on the reserve tables along with shades of yellow flowers in vintage silver pieces. A photo backdrop was decoupaged with aerial photos of surrounding landscapes taken by the father of the bride. As a focal point a handmade propeller was highlighted with the names of the bride and groom. A small world globe was made of fresh flowers displaying a paper plane and banner. At the sign in table a custom propeller vase was a perfect way to display all of the gorgeous flowers at this wedding along with a 4 by 8 sign hand painted in bold stripes bringing out the lyrics to FLY me to the moon!

Southern Wedding with Fashion Decor Elements

Elegant Weddings

What wedding would be complete without ending the night with fireworks? Jessica and Robert made their way from their home of Los Angeles to the more relaxed location of Charleston, South Carolina, bringing along Clay Austin Photography and the talented designers of RiverOaks to make their dream day a reality. Both the bride and groom work in the fashion industry, so the nods to vintage clothing patterns and sewing were a perfect addition!

From the photographer, Clay Austin Photography: This wedding took place at the jaw dropping RiverOaks Charleston which in my opinion is one of the most beautiful venues in the low country! The gorgeous couple decided to leave their busy lives in Los Angeles and declare their love for each other in the south, surrounded by the most important people in their lives. They both work in the fashion industry so Marianne and her amazing crew at RiverOaks created the most perfect fashion inspired design elements throughout the decor. The celebration was capped off by an elaborate fireworks display to send them off with a bang :)

Elegant Fall Wedding Ideas from Texas

Wedding Design

It seems like late fall produces the most beautiful styled shoots, doesn’t it? That’s the impression we get with this photo shoot from Amber Vickery Photography, Annabelle Mode with Wedding Mode, and Sprout, who combined a whole range of colors and textures for an absolutely dreamy wedding scene.

Elegant Fall Wedding Ideas from Texas - photo by Amber Vickery Photography http://ruffledblog.com/elegant-fall-wedding-ideas-from-texas

From the event designer, Annabelle Mode: I wanted to design a romantic, elegant and timeless occasion through a warm and cozy fall color palette. I knew Amber would be able to capture everything just the way I envisioned it with her attention to detail and ability to see things with such an artistic eye. Pair that with jaw dropping floral design from the uber talented Michelle Hodges, owner of Sprout. She was able to find foraged and found pieces with structured center pieces and I could not have asked for more. The historic 1890 Grove House, courteously provided by Leslie and Hugh Washburne, was the perfect setting for all of these fantastic elements to come together. Focusing on details was so much fun; stunning calligraphy, a gold foiled cake, and stunning jewelry only enhanced the beauty of everything.

The bride, Rebekah Sauer, and bridesmaid, Elizabeth Howell, were dressed in such fabulous gowns thanks to Julian Gold Bridal in San Antonio. I knew I wanted Rebekah in something graceful and elegant yet ethereal, and what better than this Monique Lhuillier gown and magnificent lace veil. Elizabeth, with her gorgeous red hair, was begging to be in this beautiful teal Amsale dress. Who could have been more handsome than our groom, Jake Sears, who complimented Rebekah so well. And finally, how adorable are Poppy and John, the flower girl and ring bearer, who almost stole the show! Collaborating with such talented and creative women in our industry made this shoot such a joy to design and style!

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.

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.

A Late Fall Inspiration Shoot in California

Wedding Design

There’s no doubt that fall in California can be one of the most beautiful times around, and this styled shoot from Photography By Charise and Belle of the Ball Designs sets that fact in stone. Using an array of pinks and burgundy (with a pop of gold), these wedding ideas have us positively swooning and dreaming of an autumn romance.

We decided on a fall, bohemian styled set up. Combining a gorgeous tablescape, an apple cider station and a fall inspired dessert bar mixed with beautiful florals in this outdoor setting was the perfect combination for our vision.

Autumnal Texas Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Photos by:

June Bug Company

We couldn’t have a better way to prep up our Thanksgiving festivities than by starting the day with a perfectly autumnal wedding captured by June Bug Co. You might want to take a piece of that apple pie while you read Shannon and Bryan’s fall wedding:

autumnal texas wedding // via ruffledblog.com

From the bride, Shannon: I was never the girl that dreamed about her future wedding before being engaged because I felt like it was bad voodoo or you’ve purchased a one-way ticket to Crazy Town. However, when Bryan proposed to me I was free to become an excited, giddy bride. The door was opened to being planning our dream wedding. When I was young, my family owned an antique store. I learned to appreciate historical antiquities from an early age which influenced many of the wedding decisions. I wanted to find a historical barn setting for the venue which can be a little tricky in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. There simply aren’t that many venues to choose from. After viewing several venues, we came upon Howell Farms after being suggested by my sister. I instantly fell in love with the venue. It was exactly what I was looking for in our wedding venue. The wedding venue looked gorgeous with the many fall colors and fallen leaves dancing around it.

We were married in the fall because it’s my favorite season of the year so many of the decorations and wedding colors were based around the colors of fall leaves. Many of the table decorations had amber glassware, pumpkins, burlap, and old books that were collected during out yearlong engagement. I spend many a weekend at local flea markets, antique stores, and estate sales looking for all of the table decorations. The main wedding color was mustard yellow because it represented my grandmother’s citrine necklace and earring set which I wore that day.

Intimate Minnesota Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Photos by:

Simply Rosie

I’m a total sucker for a good intimate wedding. As a wedding photographer herself, bride Elisabeth knew from past experience that she wanted to keep her wedding small. With a gorgeous family farm setting and images by Simply Rosie, we’re smitten with the results of her tireless DIY work!

rustic bridal parties

From the bride, Elisabeth: I always knew my wedding would be at the family farm where I grew up. Our farm is along the Red River in Minnesota with a beautiful barn and fields. With this landscape already, we didn’t need to do much else! We wanted a laid back country wedding feel with hayrides, campfire s’mores and a picnic dinner. Ribs, potatoes & beans were served. The guests sat on haybales during the ceremony as the sun set. The barn was decorated with a touch of gold and elegance with wildflowers from the fields nearby.

Our stationery was hand painted by my mom. We cut out gold wrapping paper to make the bunting we hung with the lights in the barn. We hand dipped the root beer bottles into gold and pink paint and let them drip. I spray painted all the little farm animals gold for the name places. We made our own tables for the guests to eat on out of the barn wood that was always stored in our barns. Any of the extra decorations were from my own house — being a photographer, I have plenty of little props to style with! The gold paperclip fringe on the sweetheart table was made by my little sisters. Let’s just say that was a tedious and time-consuming job. I am so grateful to my family for all the help. And also our large friend network of creative, helpful DIY people — we couldn’t have done it without them. It was a fun wedding to plan!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Don’t be afraid to have a small wedding. As a wedding photographer, I looked back on my favorite weddings to shoot- one of them had 16 people in attendance. When considering a small private wedding, I had wives tell me to go for it and that they wished they would’ve done the same. While we kept ours to just family, it was still around 60 people. It really was perfect.

Brooklyn Botanical Gardens Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

Photos by:

AGAiMAGES

Two striking brides, a reception in a botanical garden, storybook-perfect images from AGAiMAGES: all of these make this Brooklyn wedding one of our all-time faves! Anja and Kellye’s wedding day was full of lush red flowers from Peartree Flowers, impeccable style, and last-minute lucky weather. Let’s hear it for the newlyweds!

brooklyn botanical wedding

From the photographer, AGAiMAGES: Anja and Kellye really wanted their ceremony to be outside, but because the North East is pretty unpredictable in the fall, it was all up in the air. However, on their wedding day, beautiful soft clouds gave the best possible light and they could have their dream ceremony outside in the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. The emotional and beautiful ceremony that made most if not all guests’ eyes tear up followed by afternoon reception in the Palm house.

From the bride Kellye: Brooklyn, New York is our city of love. We had our first dates in Park Slope and Coney Island. We spent weekends flopped on blankets in Prospect Park and bar-hopping in Williamsburg. We moved in together in Prospect Heights and built our life. We wanted our wedding to pull from that sense of place. The natural beauty of Brooklyn’s parks, the comfort of its classic Brownstone-lined streets, the hip edginess of its diverse thoughts, creativity and people.

We wanted to bring all the beauty of Brooklyn and autumn to our guests. So we looked for inspiration regarding colors in the fall foliage. For flowers we drew on the natural setting of the park with arrangements that were luscious and dramatic, but not too ornate or manicured. Food consisted of delicious favorites using local ingredients. We wanted the photography to be candid and capture the natural surroundings and raw emotions of the day, which it did perfectly!

We wanted everyone enjoy some elegance and celebrate, but also keep things simple enough that all was pleasurable and at ease. For us, it was a perfect day.

Seattle Fall Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

Every time I look at this wedding from Carly Bish, I get the biggest smile — because of the bride! Not only does she have some amazing style, she also has the most infectious smile I’ve ever seen. With a fall wedding in Seattle, a little rain was almost a given, but I think it only added to the romance of these wedding portraits. And how great are all the dahlia arrangements made by the bride and her friends and family?

bohemian fall weddings

From the bride, Jessica: Our wedding style was urban-whimsy with vintage touches and lots of full and semi-DIY. We are both artistic, so hand making elements of our wedding was important to us and came natural. We wanted to create a fun, hand made, not-at-all-stuffy day.

I’d call our wedding eclectic, like us. We chose gray, ivory, teal and olive green as our colors, with gray having the strongest presence. We DIYed as much as we felt we could, including email save the dates, invitations, guestbook, flowers, music playlist, dessert, favors and our ceremony backdrop.

I always wanted to DIY the flowers, but worried it would be a headache. It was one of my favorite things! The day before our wedding, my best friend and I went to the farmers market in our hometown of Issaquah, WA to get flowers. We purchased 5 large dahlia-filled bouquets and spent less than $60. I have some dahlia plants at my parents home, and my mother-in-law also picked up some flowers to add to the mix. My maid of honor met us at my house to assemble all the bouquets and mason jar arrangements. The morning of the wedding, another one of my bridesmaids helped me wrap the bouquets in twine. A true team effort! I’d highly recommend doing this, if the season is right and you aren’t super particular and willing to work with what the farmers have.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? The wedding and all its details are secondary to the happiness of the couple getting married! Don’t sweat the small (and the not-so-small) stuff; if the linens are slightly off tone, or your dress hem is filthy (like mine became), or people don’t mail in their RSVP, do your best to let it go. We were blessed to have some of our friends and family reminding us of this during the planning process. Also, do whatever you can to live in the moment, and take moments to yourself (and your new spouse) as needed!

Hawaiian Holiday Inspiration Shoot

Wedding Design

Photos by:

We’re starting our roll into the winter season, which means Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is on repeat in my iTunes these days. Add our favorite season with one of the best places on earth, and this styled shoot is brought to fruition by Opihi Love and Tamiz Photography. A holiday shoot with bohemian styling from Hawaii? Say no more, I’m officially sold!

From the stylist, Melissa of Opihi Love: Hawaii is such a little slice of heaven on earth — beaches, sand, sunsets, we have it all! It’s when you find hidden gems like a Eucalyptus Forest, and fields of protea, you realize just what Maui has to offer. Although our leaves don’t change color, on the side of Haleakala Crater in upcountry Maui we created our luxe version of a Holiday Photo Shoot. Inspired by beautiful fabrics, warming colors and nod to nature, Tamiz Photography captured the shoot as if we were high in the mountains of Oregon.

Bohemian Nouveau Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

Photos by:

Goodness gracious, what this wedding does to me. Chris and Erman had a bohemian outdoor wedding ceremony with a most amazing setup, and had their friends and photographer Abdi of Three Photographers capture their wedding day. Between the incredible wild bouquet and the jack-o-lantern table numbers, this wedding is one for the fall books!

bride and groom outdoors

From the bride, Chris: Our style was definitely bohemian, with a touch of nouveau. Lots of lace, crystals, silver and copper. We wanted the country feeling but with a bit of refinement. Romantic yet easy. We had the bridesmaids wear whatever they wanted, just told them creams, blushes and flowy or lacy. Brown shoes, boots or clogs. Backyard appropriate. The fellas were in dark jeans and mellow colors. My maids of honor (I had two, also the photographers) made the flowers from my yard. I made the boutonnières from feathers I collected.

We strung the clothesline on the house for the seat cards. Burned each of them and used stamps for the numbers. Carved pumpkins for the tables. I purchased loose chandelier crystals from etsy and strung them together with Xmas ornament hooks. Then taped them on hangers and hung them from the trees. I purchased fall flowers (mums, grasses, vines and ground covers. We will be planting all of them so we an enjoy them every year on our anniversary). They were put in baskets we borrowed from our local farm stand.

Fall Wedding Details by Bows ‘n Ties

Sponsored

Photos by:

It’s no surprise that Fall is the sweetheart of weddings. With it comes a cornucopia of colors with an ever changing palette and texture aplenty, making wedding planning a feast with inspiration. Today we are selecting a few of our favorite fall wedding details, color palettes and matching ties from Bows-N-Ties. They currently carry over 4000 neckties, bow ties, and matching pocket squares that are sorted to match over 250 popular bridesmaids dress colors – including J.Crew, Alfred Angelo, Dessy and Davids Bridal bridesmaid dresses. Since we can’t talk about Fall without mentioning its rich hues, we also selected a few color palettes we love for the season:

fall wedding details

We love this wedding above from Cameron Ingalls, which pairs the fall details of dried wheat with rich tones of fig and plum bridesmaids dresses and matching ties for the groomsmen.

fall wedding details

Fall is also apple season! This means you can incorporate them in several different ways. Starting with apple orchards themselves, one of our favorite spots for an engagement session during this season. We also love incorporating apples in a wedding such as escort cards, having an apple cider bar, or candy apple favors like in this wedding we featured above, shot by Raya Carlisle.

plaid wedding details

Plaid instantly make us feel cozy. The gorgeous bride above shot by Kina Wicks is our inspiration for our next favorite detail. You can simply pick a plaid pattern you like and pull your wedding colors from there. We personally love this plaid tie. If you do choose to outfit your men in fantastic Bows-N-Ties neck ware, then you should certainly enter their Wedding Picture Contest for a chance to win $250! There is a new winner selected every month!

Ultimately Autumn is a season of bold and unabashed color, like we find in this Chicago wedding we featured above from Olivia Leigh Photographie. Breaking away from muted tones we’re used to seeing, our picks for the groomsmen ties are vibrant with a fresh spin on the traditional fall colors.

Melbourne Boathouse Wedding

When newlyweds Rob and Kim were dating, they visited the Fairfield Boathouse in Melbourne and immediately knew that’s where they wanted to marry. Taking a great deal of inspiration from their invitation suite from Rifle Paper Co., the couple and their friends planned an amazing day that was as much a treat for the guests as it was for Rob and Kim themselves. Our thanks goes out to the incredible Jonathan Ong for sending these images our way!

Autumnal Chicago Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Looking through these images from Olivia Leigh, I don’t think my smile ever left my face. There seriously isn’t a more beautiful place to get married in the fall than the Midwest! Meagan, a schoolteacher, and Drew are two of the most fun-loving people we’ve seen, and it shines through in every photograph. Prepare yourselves for some serious wedding dress envy from Lazaro (that corset is beyond, people):


Meagan + Drew | Vintage Teacher's Fall Wedding

From the bride, Meagan: Our goal was to keep the details tasteful and stylish with an element of playfulness. More than anything, Drew and I wanted to create a feeling of merriment throughout the whole weekend. We wanted our friends and family to be participants in our celebration rather than observant guests. To accomplish this we chose a band and caterer that would keep things fun, fresh and seamless. There was dancing between courses and we opted for an ice cream sundae bar instead of serving cake.


Meagan + Drew | Vintage Teacher's Fall Wedding

We didn’t choose a set theme or colors for our wedding; instead we drew inspiration from autumn colors and textures. We considered the groomsmen’s grey suits, the bridesmaids’ blue dresses and the chocolate brown linens as ‘neutrals,’ and let the flowers become the focus. The beautiful arrangements tied everything together with rich fall colors like cranberry, orange and goldenrod.


Meagan + Drew | Vintage Teacher's Fall Wedding

Though we opted not to have an overall theme, the personal banner Drew sketched for our website become a link between the little details. Drew is from the East coast and I’m from the Midwest; we met while living in NYC and now live in Chicago. In his sketch, the New York and Chicago skylines are united by a heart. We took the opportunity to compare Chicago to New York in small ways, like showcasing a Brooklyn Lager vs Chicago’s 312 at the bar and a New York-style hot dog vs a Chicago hot dog for the late-night snack. Our vendors were incredible, and we also had tons of fun designing DIY ‘extras’ to personalize our day. We made cootie catchers to lay at the bars, ‘worst wedding song’ lists to display in the bathrooms, and table numbers out of our favorite song lyrics.

Our families and friends helped us assemble wedding programs, menus, escort cards, Chicago-themed hotel guest bags and the animal crackers we gave away at the end of the night (our venue was next door to the zoo!). We also designed and assembled all of the church decor and florals. It was tons of work but a great way to spend time with everyone!

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Our ultimate goal was to have a blast and feel relaxed on our wedding day. To do this we knew we needed to be organized and prepared. We did a lot of research and enlisted the help of our parents for advice and guidance. We educated ourselves with magazines and websites to figure out what we wanted, how to access it, how to budget for it, and how to achieve it. When decisions got a little stressful we’d ask ourselves: “On the day of our wedding, what will actually matter? What will we remember most?”

From the photographer, Olivia: Meagan and Drew are two of the sweetest, most fun people I’ve ever worked with. Their day was beautiful and chic but throughout it all, it was their humour and happiness that shone most brightly! Meagan looked SO beautiful in her gorgeous whimsical tulle wedding dress. It was, of course, a very windy day in Chicago, and it was a riot throughout the day watching the dress do its own thing, eventually enveloping Meagan in a tunnel of tulle on Michigan avenue. Later into the night, they actually ended up cutting the dress with scissors on the dance floor to ensure maximum party capabilities. :) They decided to go back to Meagan’s hometown of Western Springs, Illinois, for a ceremony at the quaint church where her dad directs their incredible music program. A reception followed at the historic Cafe Brauer, a Prairie Style gem in the middle of Lincoln Park in Chicago. This building is just stunning and the perfect setting for a true Chicago wedding with its rich history and beautiful skyline views!

Boise Botanical Gardens Wedding

Garden Weddings

Photos by:

This Idaho wedding shot by Andria Lindquist is that of a couple with two main priorities: comfort and fun. Isn’t that how it should always be? We love the mix of having a ceremony in a garden setting then moving to a reception in an industrial building!


rustic outdoor ceremony wedding

From the bride, Kristin: The majority of our relationship has evolved through shared experiences and memories of being outdoors; from camping trips into the Sawtooth Mountains of Central Idaho to a surprise proposal while hiking the Na’Pali coast of Kauai. In this light, we realized early on that an outdoor ceremony would be perfect for us. The Botanical Gardens stole our heart from the first visit. It offered an intimate, natural setting and had just the right mix of qualities we were looking for.

Together, we decided what was important to us and weren’t afraid to break away from tradition. We wanted every aspect of our wedding to be personal and a reflection of our relationship. During the planning process, we went through the details of the wedding ceremony together and tailored them around things that were significant about our relationship. It was more important for us to involve the people and things that have touched our lives than to conform to conventional standards. We dressed our Miniature Schnauzer, who we absolutely adore, in a bow tie and he accompanied the ring bearer and flower girl down the aisle. We had close friends perform the music for the ceremony, which included the bridal processional, an original acoustic composition of Coldplay’s “The Scientist” instead of the customary “Bridal March.” For an officiant, we had one of Blake’s friends from grade-school perform a ceremony that we all prepared together. The day was pulled together with the help and support of friends and family. Ultimately, it was very intimate and incredibly special to both of us. It was a perfect representation of who we are together and a reminder of how far we’ve come.

Although the entire day was absolutely amazing, there is one particular moment that will hold an extra special place in our hearts forever. Shortly after the ceremony, we managed to sneak away with our photographer to capture a few more pictures as the sun started setting and the lighting was in its prime. As the photo session began to wrap up, my anxiety started to build. I knew we were headed strait to the reception, and shortly after we rejoined our guests we would have our first dance together. I was not only anxious about our performance, but also lacking confidence in the ability of my dress to cooperate with all the twisting and spinning. To calm my mind and ensure there would be no major wardrobe malfunction, Blake pulled out his iPhone and turned on our song. He grabbed my hand and we danced with each other on a cracked slab of concrete in front of an rustic old barn with the sun setting behind us. In that moment, everything slowed down. We looked around and there were no guests, no timeline, and no pressure. It was just the two of us, my new husband and I sharing a moment together that was sweet, improvised, intimate, and unforgettably perfect.

Advice to future brides: Don’t rush the planning process and really take the time to truly enjoy each step. Take the opportunity to have fun, learn more about each other, and explore what it is that makes your relationship so special to each of you. Appreciate the little moments that occur as you work with each other to customize your big day. For me, some of my fondest memories were made while planning; going through all of our favorite songs together and choosing which one to dance to, coming to tears as we wrote our wedding vows, working together to find the right shade of pink for the ties, and stumbling through our first dance practice in the middle of the living room. Those little moments are now just as significant as the actual wedding day.

Rustic Autumn Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Photos by:

We love seeing the end result when not only the bride toils away at endless DIY projects, but the groom pitches in too! Such was the case with Alena and Ben’s Nebraska wedding, which perfectly encapsulates everything that fall is. View all of the images shot by the fantastic duo EPlove and read Alena and Ben’s story from the bride herself:

rustic autumn wedding in nebraska from eplove

From the bride, Alena: Literally EVERYTHING was handmade by myself, my darling husband, or my mom and best friend. Our house kind of resembled a sweatshop during the months before the wedding. Ben would be down in the basement sewing and handstamping each of the 150 flour sack napkins or woodburning our initials into the tree trunk circles my dad cut from a tree in our backyard, and my mom spent a week making 12 different frostings and 17 different bundt cakes from scratch, while cutting each section of fabric for all the reception tablecloths (idea found on folksy.com). I created and made each of the boutonnieres (my original inspiration was Green Wedding Shoes “Burlap and Feather Boutonniere Tutorial”), and all of the flower pins, as well as sewing and putting together my bridal bouquet. My maid of honor and I spent hours cutting pennants and clothes pinning them to twine to decorate the barn, and I spent at least one CSI marathon making the yarn letters for the ceremony. Shout out to my MOH for handmaking all of the incredible cream cheese mints and helping me create each unique centerpiece, and to my sister for filling 200 tiny bags with our “first date chai” for guests. I fell even more in love with my husband as he helped me thrift and paint and create.

The door with the keys on it was an old door from my mom’s original house growing up, and some of the decorations on the barn wall were other things from my parent’s childhood (the peacocks, white chair, and window). All of the keys incorporated into the wedding were real vintage keys that my mom scored at an auction. At least 75% of the items used for centerpieces were from my childhood home (my mom is a genius at interior design), others were found at antique shops in downtown NE City. We thrifted most of the china used at the receptions, but also used personal pieces from many family members and close friends (we now have an beautifully mismatched set of dishes for our personal use). The rug we got married on has been in my family for years, and that magical vanity we used as an altar was found at a random goodwill for 25 bucks.

Our first look pictures were taken on a small bridge in the middle of a million trees decked out in their fall leaves. Walking up to Ben on that bridge, with all the leaves and twigs trailing in my lace train and seeing his face for the first time that day- it’s indescribable. It was overwhelming in the most amazing and lovely way. During the lighting of our unity candle (kerosene lamp), two groomsmen performed a gorgeous rendition of “Come Thou Fount” – Mumford & Sons style, complete with banjo. It was so perfect for the moment and a beautiful memory. Also, as a cheap gift, I had myself professionally recorded singing an Ingrid Michaelson song to surprise Ben with during our first dance. We were supposed to have our first dance to a Ben Folds song, so at first he was pretty ticked at the DJ for messing it up- it was the sweetest moment when he figured out it was me singing.

TONS of time was spent on wedding blogs loooong before I even knew my husband (ha- I can’t be the ONLY girl to do that… right?) My personal style as well as growing up in a home where almost everything was vintage, antique, handed down, or handmade also played a large part in our planning. Also, it was really important to Ben and I that even though people might not agree with or understand our vision of our wedding, we wanted our personalities and the loves of our life (music, design, humor) to be evident. Everywhere you looked was something that exuded “us”, and that’s exactly what we spent many late night hours dreaming up while sitting in dingy coffee shops. We wanted to incorporate all the things that make us weak in the knees, and the result was overwhelming. It was perfect. It was 100% Ben and Alena. A day that was so imperfect, crazy, but handmade with tons of love- with many elements we could keep and cherish for the rest of our life (as well as decorate our home with- ha!)

How would you describe your wedding theme? Oooh, a colorful conglomerate of our favorite coffee shop, our closets, a folk music festival, a Mumford & Sons song, an antique shop, a backyard bbq, and your most wildest dreams. But seriously… if our love was an object outside of us instead of a feeling inside of us, it would be something cozy, mismatched, hilarious, imperfect, but lovely and warm — and that’s what I feel our wedding was. Is that a weird analogy? Oh well.

Is there anything else you would like to recommend to other brides? Shop Etsy. The things we couldn’t make or didn’t have time to create, we found on Etsy. And put some effort and money into stellar photography and video. It’s what you get to keep after your day is over. You won’t ever regret it. And finally, our wedding would have been impossible without all the help and support from our friends and family. Even if they couldn’t see our “vision” right away, they were all so positive and helpful in making it happen. A labor of love from start to finish. You’re all rad. Xoxo.

Daily Pick

Casey Brodley, Photographer

I’m not a traditional wedding photographer. My background and training is steeped in photo journalism, so that’s how I approach a wedding. My goal is to document the day, not stage it. I let moments unfold naturally, with minimal prom posing and minimal “say cheese” interference.

As a photo journalist, I come prepared for anything. Every wedding is different. I have witnessed full-grown men weep more times than I can count. I have seen smiles so wide that I’m concerned someone may burst a blood vessel. I have climbed mountains with all my gear. And this one time a sprinkler system was triggered during a ceremony.

As a wedding photographer, I walk into every job with the guarantee that I will witness pure joy. But more importantly, I walk into every job with the probability that my day will end with cake. I like to keep my cake-to-work ratio balanced. For health reasons.

Italian Autumn Inspiration

Not that it takes much for me to dream of vacationing in Italy, but this styled shoot from Cinzia Bruschini has me daydreaming away. From the sweet vintage lace to the candy-covered apples, this al fresco dining shoot is the real deal. I will let the stylist take the stage: Getting married in autumn with the glorious burst of colours in the trees, the crisp crunch of dried leaves underfoot, the nip in the air and the abundance of choices you have with this season being one of the most dramatic symbols of endings and beginnings autumn stands for.

We have been inspired by the magical atmosphere of an ancient town called Moresco in the Marche region, Italy. Gold, red, dark chocolate and coffee — The typical seasonal colours have been used to give life to a very refined design on which the nature is the undisputed Queen.
