Berry Toned Spring Wedding Editorial

Wedding Design

Berry tones might go hand in hand with fall wedding decor, but they fit right at home with spring weddings too. Erika Lynn Photography and Blushing Blooms put together this stylish shoot with an eye-catching array of pink and fuchsia flowers used for the bride’s bouquet, her flower crown, and even a beautiful hanging flower backdrop!

From the florist and designer, Jamie of Blushing Blooms: We wanted to create a different setting for a classic bride, we were inspired by the bare curved tree branches and created a beautiful backdrop for any couple to say their I do’s. We also added sweet woodland touches like moss and bird’s nests, and if you look closely you can see a small snail that made his way into the bride’s bouquet… what a sneaky snail!

Graceful Desert Wedding at Enchanted Rock

Wedding Design

It used to be that “desert” and “romantic” were two words never to be found in the same sentence, but that time is long gone — just take this styled shoot from Bella Reese Photography, Vivid Events, and Sweetwater Stems as proof. Blush pink protea and centerpieces with eucalyptus make us dream of sunny desertscapes, complete with a beautiful bride in a stunning Enzoani wedding gown.

From the photographer, Bella Reese Photography: Most of my childhood I woke up in the southwest — desert was all I knew. Having always had the mountains in my horizon, with beautiful cactus and just plain desert is home to me. There has always been something so comforting about it. So this vision I’ve had for so long came naturally. I wanted something that came from my heart and meant something so deeply. Enchanted Rock seemed fitting with its gorgeous landscaping and perfect location. It was exactly what was needed to provide my “desert.”

Going into it I knew that succulents and proteas had to play a big part and Sweetwater Stems more than delivered! The gorgeous Enzoani gown immediately stood out in Blush Bridal Lounge, it is so elegant and relaxed, exactly what we needed! Giselle with Vivid Events helped pull this all together and she knew exactly how to make my vision come alive.

My amazing husband knew exactly how important this shoot was to me and also knew my vision for the table. It had to be JUST right. So as great as he is, he built us the table. It’s perfect! It allowed the personal touch I really wanted because this is so near and dear to my heart. The table setup really allows for such an intimate gathering, all of us girls wanted to sit down and have a glass of wine! It was so inviting! I couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to help pull this together. This was the desert elegance we all wanted!

Pretty Vintage Southern Wedding

Vintage Weddings

Photos by:

Vintage dress lovers, get ready to swoon. The southern bride in our next feature sourced vintage dresses not just for herself, but all of her bridesmaids as well. Vintage details, hard work and lots of love combined to create a charming Virginia wedding.

From the bride. Jacob and I have known each other since middle school. We navigated our early years of high school together as best of friends and we finally decided to fall in love junior year of high school.

The family barn in which we celebrated is very special because it is over 70 years old and was falling apart as of last year. I had always dreamed of having my wedding reception in the barn where as a child I swung from the rope swing into puffy piles of hay fresh from the fields! As soon as we got engaged, I ran out there to take a second look, contemplating the time frame we had before the wedding. I was disappointed to find the barn in worse condition than I had remembered. My dad reassured me that it was also his dream to fix it up and use it as an entertainment center for our big family get togethers. With the help of dozens and dozens of wonderful and amazing friends and family, chopping down trees from our own backyard to make lumber, Grandma’s southern cooking, and lots of mason jars filled with water for our laborers, the barn miraculously transformed into a beautiful, historic structure. It’s just so charming.

I knew I wanted a vintage dress but I had no idea where to start. On the first day of our search, we found the dress! It’s a 1950’s wedding dress in great condition. Bygones referred me to a local Richmonder who specializes in vintage wedding dress restoration where I got it restored and fitted.

For the bridesmaid dresses, we searched for hours for vintage dresses online and in vintage shops. We ended up finding all of them except for one on ebay and etsy. The last one we found at good ol’ Bygones, where I found my dress. The bridesmaids dresses are basically my favorite part of the wedding. I loved them all so much!

For the reception, my mom, my grandma and I all collected hundreds of jars and old soda bottles from antique shops, a local farm that sold mason jars in bulk, etc. My grandma even went to Cracker Barrel and asked if she could have the adorable, little syrup bottles they throw away after use. She got a whole box full! A few years back, my dad found about 30 glass soda bottles from what looks like the 1950’s underneath the old general store on our property. They were some of our best finds! I ordered wildflowers wholesale and we arranged them ourselves the day of the wedding! For the tables, we bought lots and lots of yards of yellow gingham fabric to use as runners. We bought hankies from antique shops and giftwagon.com and used them on each table as well.
