The theme of the day was Indian Summer – a fusion of rich colors and bohemian elements that seem to go so effortlessly at this time of the year. From the circular ceremony layout to the geode table numbers to the eclectic cake trio, we think it looked pretty sweet. Other highlights include the delightfully delicious cookie bar and trolley car that gave a subtle nod to the South. Let’s dive on in!

New wedding dress lines always get us so giddy, we must confess. We anticipate each creation with excitement and we fawn over the latest trends in the wedding fashion world that get brought to life through the dresses. With a full retail line that appears in bridal boutiques throughout North America, has heaps of goodness that will suit the taste of every bride, from a traditionalist bride to a bride seeking modern and sleek.

The wedding industry is constantly evolving and the same goes for wedding dresses. Pure Magnolia Gowns stayed on top of the styles and we’re so impressed by all of the different variations. They’ve not only paid attention to the sartorial trends, but the creator of , Patty Nayel, says they’ve been supremely inspired by the real brides that often head to them for wedding dresses. The two big trends this season are dress separates and peek-a-boo gowns. Both styles are gaining speed amongst designers and brides alike. With Pure Magnolia Gowns’s unique and modern bridal separates, brides are loving the ability to mix-and-match tops and skirts (and colors!) to create the perfect bridal look.

For the brides on the hunt for something more show-stopping and skin showing, Pure Magnolia Gowns also has peek-a-boo gowns; with these lovelies, you get a chance to show off while still looking ultra-elegant.

Fun patterns and prints, dreamy lace, and luxurious fabrics are other must-see and must-have trends for the latest wedding dress collections, and certainly didn’t hold back from them! Watch out for their soft, simple, and feminine looks paired with sumptuous lace and other rich fabrics, along with their dresses gussied up in striking gem-colored prints and floral prints.

We love that has a “sky’s the limit” attitude when it comes to their dresses and not only do their designs think outside of the box, but each beautiful wedding gown is made of materials that are sustainable and ethically-sourced.

Shot in picturesque gardens of the French Riviera, these luxe gowns have truly set the stage for the bridal trends of 2017, and we are delighted to share them with you today!

The concept is simple: Contemporary elegance meets comfort and beauty. This contradiction is made possible through mermaid sillouhettes, side slits, detachable overskirts and other simple lines that create a harmonious balance. Though they can be described as minimalist, these gowns are hardly lacking. Crisp lace is a theme throughout, creating timeless looks that even Grace Kelly and Kate Middleton would fawn over. Light fabrics of crepe, taffeta, chiffon and gauze work together to give the gowns cohesive dimension and life – totally twirl-worthy!

It’s impossible to decide what we love most about this collection. Going beyond the layered fabrics, Pronovias has incorporated subtle elements of sophistication to each and every gown- feathers, silk thread, sequin appliqués and delicate beading, just to name a few. These embellishments are the perfect emphasis for the not-to-be-forgotten back. Though the gowns could rest on these hand-crafted details alone, they don’t stop there! Pronovias has artfully blended fabrics in soft pink, vanilla and green to create shades of white that exceed our wildest dreams.

Pronovias 2016 Collection

Fashion & Beauty

Photos by:

This past weekend, invited us to attend their first NYC runway show, and we honestly couldn’t be more thrilled to see their 2016 Collection in person. As always, Pronovias is on the cutting edge of wedding fashion with a selection of couture gowns that are positively blowing us away. Just wait until you see the pieces with illusion lace — our jaws hit the floor.


Shown above: Veranda gown


Verona gown – love the cape!


Valeria gown – with a gorgeous keyhole back


Valira gown – with a criss cross back


Veneto gown – flowy delicate neck detail


Varinia gown – silk gauze skirt with French and Chantilly lace bodice


Timy dress – 3/4 lace sleeve gown, making sleeved wedding gowns look SO good


Vienal gown – sweetheart neckline with sheer overlay in illusion tulle


Varnava gown – A-line wedding dress with French lace and side pockets (French lace and pockets in the same sentence is always a good combo in my book)

Pronovias is a family company that started in 1964 in Barcelona. This Spanish label is available in 105 countries and launches two collections every year. Atelier Pronovias, the gowns you see in this collection, is the Haute Couture line worn by top models including Karolína Kurková and many other Victoria’s Secret models last April at the Barcelona show.


Verila gown – Mikado silk, lace and tulle ball gown and side pockets!


Pleasant gown – off-the-shoulder bodice with sheer elbow-length sleeves

Pronovias’ Flagship store (all 5 floors of a building in Midtown!) and headquarters is in New York City, and it has over 500 bridal boutiques that carry the label. The 2016 collection has 30 gowns, with romantic and sexy silhouettes with illusion bodices, French and Chantilly lace, mikado silk, crepe or brocade that give these gowns an airy and ethereal look.


Vintage gown – one of my personal top 3 faves! Chantilly lace mermaid skirt overlaid with soft tulle flared skirt gathered at the waist

These sexy, lace dresses are inspired by lingerie with a touch of Hollywood glamour from the thirties and forties. These Great-Gatsby inspired gowns play with strategically placed sheer panels, beaded tulle and embroidery creating the most delicate sleeves, neckline and back. This Spanish household label is quickly being adopted by brides beyond Spain and across the globe. has 7 logistic centers worldwide to ensure the process to finding the gown you want is smooth until you have it in your hands. Their attention to detail and precision you see in these gowns carries throughout the company.

Elegant Toronto Wedding Inspired by Dolce & Gabbana

Elegant Weddings

We love seeing weddings that are a long time in the making, and Renata and Aundrae went on their first date in 2005. Nearly a decade later, the couple exchanged vows in Toronto with the help of photographer Boyfriend/Girlfriend, wedding planner/designer and reception florist Melissa Andre Events, and bouquet florist Blush & Bloom, choosing a wedding theme inspired by Dolce & Gabbana’s spring/summer 2014 campaign. I dare you to find a more fashionable couple!

From the bride, Renata: From day 1 we knew we didn’t want anything typical so when we met with our wedding planner, she presented the most perfect inspiration: Dolce & Gabbana spring/summer 2014 campaign and we were instantly sold! The rich golds, warm reds, blacks and hint of blue when combined, made something so dreamy!

Warm. Romantic. Inviting. Rich textures. Fashion forward. Our wedding reminded me of a modern Spanish cathedral – it took place in a church (built in the 1800’s) so that speaks for itself. Melissa & her team modernized it with the gorgeous Christian Lacroix wallpaper as the table top and modern elements throughout. One of our favorite elements we added was the custom drawn caricature – we both love soccer and have played for almost all our lives, so having both of us drawn in our wedding attire, wearing soccer cleats, was an obvious choice.

For the ceremony, we had an arch made up of rucus foliage as well as hanging amaranthus. My bouquet was very important to me – I really wanted something I had never seen before and so different. My friend Becky is beyond talented – I sent her an image of the protea flowers and I knew I had to have it. How it turned out was better than I imagined! Our floral arrangements at the reception were a mix of garden roses, peonies and anomones.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? My advice for couples planning their wedding is to stay calm and try not to get caught up in it. I found the process can easily get stressful and frustrating – especially costs and budgets. Pick whatever is most important to you, and eliminate things you could live without. In the end, as long as you get married, the rest will fall into place.

Wedding Music:
First Dance: “I Found My Everything,” Mary J Blige
Music was a huge thing for us! We both love music and different genres, and knew that music is the one thing to get people going! For our ceremony, we had a single violinist so it was so romantic and beautiful and we wanted him to play Ave Maria as it means so much to us. The cocktail was inspired by Frank Sinatra with a mix of soul, Motown and jazz.

Claire Pettibone Romantique 2015 Bridal Collection

Fashion & Beauty

We’ve been big fans of wedding dress designer Claire Pettibone for years now, so when we heard the designer was introducing a line of more affordable yet equally gorgeous bridal gowns, we could hardly contain our excitement. Laura Gordon Photography captured the stunning pieces on film, and we have to admit we’re having a difficult time picking a favorite.

Claire Pettibone Romantique 2015 Bridal Collection - photo by Laura Gordon Photography http://ruffledblog.com/claire-pettibone-romantique-2015-bridal-collection

Designer Claire Pettibone has built a career making brides’ dreams come true, but if her couture collection is a bit out of reach, or if you just want a more understated, low-key vibe for your special day, she has created some very romantic ways to say “I do.” “After countless love-letters from brides who adored my collection but didn’t quite have a couture budget, we felt it was time to launch ‘Romantique’,” Pettibone explains. “It was really important to me and our company to make this collection with quality and integrity, so we chose to keep the production at home here in Los Angeles. ‘Romantique’ has a relaxed elegance so that a bride can really make it her own. I love that our brides don’t fit into a “type” and that my collection seems to attract the coolest, anti-zilla, girls you would totally be friends with,” says the designer.

About our Groom: Skipping down the Instagram rabbit hole, I came across this gorgeous bearded man… I’ve actually never really been into beards, but wow, this guy is handsome! Flash-forward to a few months later, we decide to photograph our Romantique collection with a “groom” to really tell the whole love story, which after all, is actually the point of a wedding! I reached out to some men’s model agents, and I think I actually gasped when I saw Christopher Millington as one of the gentlemen the agent was sending to our casting! So he shows up, completely charming in a not-trying-to-be-charming way… with a Scottish accent… oh, come ON! And, there you go… we found our Romantique groom. We would love to hear about your groom! Tag him #romantiquegroom, and you can follow ours @chrisjohnmillington. Of course, we can’t wait to see YOU in your Romantique gown #romantiquebride #clairepettibone.

Gold Rush Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Kat Harris

Without a doubt, my current color scheme crush is gold and black. Something about the pairing screams elegant, fresh, and luxe — and photographer Kat Harris would seem to agree! She formed this shoot after getting inspired by runway collections from Ralph Lauren and Kate Spade, and we’re tickled to see how well her ideas translated into wedding design.

From the photographer, Kat Harris: Ever since I saw Ralph Lauren’s fall 2012 black + gold collection along with Kate Spade’s Spring 2013 collection, I have been dying to do a black and gold themed wedding! Black and gold are timeless, and never go out of style yet you rarely see them incorporated into weddings. What excited me about this theme is that timeless, tailored, class is back ladies! I’m a Southern Prep at heart so I’ve been giddy to see tailored suits for men come back as well as classically polished silhouettes for ladies to be back on the horizon. And of course I had to include bows and chevron prints into the shoot!

What is refreshing to me about this theme is that although timeless it offers a fresh, polished, tailored, yet spunky way to incorporate classic All-American details into your wedding. This is why we incorporated a lemon whiskey bar, chevron print on the invites, and bows upon bows upon bows! And don’t even get me started on how cute Jessie and Johan are together. They’re the perfect couple to embody this shoot! We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it!

1940s Rehearsal Dinner Shoot

Wedding Design

Photos by:

When Erin of EE Photography sent this styled shoot our way, we just knew we needed to jump on it! Every single image just oozes Southern charm and vintage appeal, with dreamy decor, weather, and models running rampant. Looking at these pictures makes me desperately wish I had a wooden boat to crawl into and paddle away… Thank you for sharing, Erin!

vintage 1940s rehearsal dinner shoot

From the stylist, Shelbi: We began the styling of this photo shoot with a Pearl Harbor theme in mind and gravitated towards an upscale rustic rehearsal dinner. We wanted to incorporate 1940s fashion with a modern flair and incorporate that design into the tablescape, decor and invitation/sign design as well. The use of a fishing net, boat, poles and anchor helped to set the scene for a romantic dinner by the water. At the same time, we used a crisp white tablecloth and natural colors to create a simple and modern setting as well as hints of gold and silver to add a touch of opulence to an otherwise outdoor setting.

In keeping with the 1940s theme we used typefaces with vintage flair and spiced them up with a unique color palettes. The pop of bright gold was used in the invitation and the signs to unify the event but also to make it stand out. I found the succulents at Calloway’s for $5 a piece in plastic pots and wrapped the pots in rope from Walmart to better fit with the design of the table. These were so easy and inexpensive to make but added such personality to the place settings! I included a step-by-step photo tutorial to show how I wrapped the pots. The hanging clear bottles were empty cream soda bottles used as vases for bunches of baby’s breath.

The benches around the table were handmade by my husband who used stumps as support for two old boards. We also used slices of tree stumps to create a chalkboard menu, direction signs and coasters for the table.

I looked everywhere for the perfect fishing net and found one in the most unexpected place! As my husband was gathering wood for to make the benches he discovered a large net lying in the field behind my aunt and uncle’s house. In the midst of creating a fort, we have speculated that one of my cousins somehow acquired and later abandoned a batting cage net and thus we found our centerpiece!

Timeless Beauty…

Fashion & Beauty

Photos by:

One of the most exciting questions of the past few weeks has finally been answered, and we couldn’t be more pleased! Kate Middleton (or shall we say Duchess Catherine) chose Sarah Burton of fashion house Alexander McQueen to design her wedding gown, and we couldn’t help but see a parallel between Kate’s gown and Grace Kelly’s timeless lace wedding dress. Kate has brought modest simplicity back to bridal sophistication, from her simple tiara to her small posy lily of the valley bouquet. Classic brides, take note from these royal brides of times past:

If we could be princesses for a day, we’d certainly be contacting British designer Charlotte Casadéjus. Charlotte’s gorgeous wedding gowns are so perfectly vintage. Each of her pieces includes original vintage details, ranging from vintage lace to beading to antique buckles. Because of this, none of her pieces are the same and each offers a totally different aesthetic!
