Spring Crossroads Estate Wedding

Elegant Weddings

Photos by:

Brooke Borough

Lizzie and Paul’s wedding is one of the most darling things we’ve seen today, and Brooke Borough captured all of it in its glory. This California fête in the springtime by Jill & Co Events is radiating in its whimsical flashes of pink with Anna le Pley Taylor‘s floral goodness ranging from the bride’s dainty bouquet to those creations lining the ceremony aisle. One thing we have to comment on: vintage barns can rock ceiling draping like no other.

From the event coordinator, Jill & Co Events: Lizzie & Paul tied the knot at a beautiful estate in Los Olivos, CA – Crossroads Estate, a Foley Family Wines property. Mid spring they said their “I Do’s” underneath an old oak tree at the base of rolling hills surrounded by 250 of their loved ones. The bride and her mother were meticulous with design details and strove to truly bring the outdoors into the vintage barn. Soft drapery on the poles of the barn with garlands flowing up and down drapes truly brought this outdoor feel alive.

The strewn market lights and chandelier over the dance floor softened up the barn and gave it elements of warm dimension. A trio played during cocktail hour al fresco, where guests gave heart felt speeches to the newlyweds. This couple chose a different direction than your typical sit down dinner, and offered numerous delicious food stations in a cocktail style meal, with guests mingling about, offering a unique guest experience. The night fluidly continued into hours of dancing with an incredible live band, compliments of the best friend of the groom and lead musician. Lizzie & Paul capped the night off with a bottle of champagne and jumped into a romantic vintage car before speeding off to their honeymoon and life as husband and wife!

Colorful Bohemian German Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

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

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

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

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

Hummingbird Nest Ranch Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

Like the bride said, her wedding had the flower wall of her dreams. Once you see it, you’ll understand why it’s ours too! Matt and Danielle’s California wedding was a dream and thanks to Katie Shuler Photography, we’re able to share all of the bright colors, elegant wedding details from LB Event Planning, and the must-see flower wall and other fantastic florals by Events by Sammy.

tropical colors flower wall - photo by Katie Shuler Photography http://ruffledblog.com/hummingbird-nest-ranch-wedding

From the bride, Danielle: I have always envisioned having a tent reception! The feel is so classic and elegant but also very warm and intimate because of the added nature/garden feel — we both loved that. Matt and I wanted a formal wedding, but one that would be reflective of us as a couple, by remaining personal, and fun! We wanted our wedding to also be elegant, classic, warm, personal, timeless, and garden chic. We were able to achieve that exact vision with the help of my mom, sister and LB Events.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Stay true to yourselves! If your day reflects you as a couple, it will be a memorable day for everybody, no matter what. For us, the best touches were the personal ones. We had Matt’s best childhood friend marry us, we wrote our own vows, and I surprised Matt with a visit from our labradoodle during bridal portraits. Unbeknownst to us at the time, our favorite intimate moments were also recognized, and acknowledged, by our family and friends as being the most special. Hire a photographer that you gel with! Matt and I instantly clicked with Katie. Her relational skills, I think, is one of her gifts as a photographer, aside from her insanely talented eye. By the end of the experience we felt like the best of friends — comfortable and ourselves in front of her lens. We absolutely cherish our wedding photos and I know our relationship with our photographer was a big factor.

Colorful Ironstone Vineyards Wedding

Modern Weddings

Photos by:

Erin Milnik

An elegant wedding in the countryside can definitely be styled to how you want it, so when Cat and John were planning their California vineyard nuptials, they wanted heaps of color and a lovely dash of whimsy thrown in for good measure. Their florist, Rare Palette, went all out in designing the wedding blooms, using wondrous combinations of peonies, tulips, and garden roses that got our hearts racing. We’re so glad Erin Milnik was there to capture this day!

Colorful Ironstone Vineyards Wedding - photo by Erin Milnik http://ruffledblog.com/colorful-ironstone-vineyards-wedding

From the bride, Cat: We imagined an elegant wedding in the country — classic, vintage, romantic, rustic. Our color scheme was navy with pops of orange, pinks, golden yellow, and greens. We had some DIY projects, including handcrafted petal cones, a custom welcome sign and seating chart made from reclaimed pallets and stained by John, our table number holders and table numbers, the weathered arbor (steel wool, vinegar, and black tea stain), seed packet name cards, and the ribbon garland on cake table.

From the photographer, Erin MilnikI’m thrilled to be sharing John and Cat’s wedding day with you! I met the couple in a coffee shop in Murphy’s California… the couple was staying in a cabin nearby, had been wine tasting, and decided they loved Ironstone Vineyards so much that they ended up booking it for their wedding venue. John is a design director at Clif Bar so the wedding would be full of great design and lots of color.

Stylish Greenpoint Loft Wedding

Modern Weddings

Seeing weddings break the mold and step outside of the box is a lovely and welcome thing. When we get served up a dish of unique wedding details with a stunning couple to boot, it reinvigorates us. Abby and Jeremy not only brought the industrial style to their Brooklyn wedding; they incorporated one-of-a-kind wedding details and florals by Wyld that were snapped by Shannon and Elena for Amber Gress Photography that we absolutely adore.

modern wedding fashion - photos by Shannon Roddy and Elena Mudd for Amber Gress Photography http://ruffledblog.com/stylish-greenpoint-loft-wedding

From the bride, Abby: We knew that we wanted to get married in Brooklyn (where we met), but we wanted an unconventional event space. Something that felt like our experience of Brooklyn—artsy, approachable, maybe even a little gritty. When we stepped into The Greenpoint Loft we fell in love instantly. It was the perfect mix of urban and industrial with huge potential and freedom for anything we wanted to create. In all honesty, it just felt like a really cool yet unpretentious place where we could party hard with all our best buds.

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?

Too excited to wait to get married, the pair opted for an intimate civil ceremony barely a month after Gib popped the question!

Modern Downtown Savannah Wedding

Modern Weddings

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

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

“Ruth is an exceptional artist and artisan! She was very prompt to stay in communication with me throughout my ordering process. She worked with me to make sure that all my needs were met exactly. It was so comforting to work with her through the stressful process of ordering the perfect wedding invitations! I absolutely LOVE the way her products turned out, and cannot wait to send them to all my guests! Thank you SO MUCH Ruth, your kindness and professionalism have helped me more than you know!” ” – Emily D.

After living in the small town of Woods Hole on Cape Cod for nearly 11 years, Ruth, the owner and designer of Concertina Press, moved down to the sunny East coast of Florida to be closer to family. Her Cape Cod map save the date is still widely popular with couples getting married on the Cape, along with the matching wedding invitation. Since moving south she’s added more tropical designs including seahorses, sand dollars and waves.

Ruth takes pride in customer service, and making the online ordering process as easy as possible while still remaining personalized. You can purchase samples of any of her invitations online, or contact her directly with any questions or for a quote.

Buckle in, because we’re about to share the wedding of event and floral designer extraordinaire Juli Vaughn of Juli Vaughn Designs. With some planning expertise from Leah of Color Pop Events and the help of some of New York’s finest vendors, the wedding turned into a “color-filled, festive, whimsical event” in the bride’s own words. Thank you to Haley Sheffield for taking these wonderful images!

Bright + Modern NYC Wedding - photo by Haley Sheffield Photography event and floral design by Juli Vaughn Designs http://ruffledblog.com/bright-modern-NYC-wedding

From the bride, Juli: When Josh and I started planning our wedding, the first thing we realized was that we wanted all of our dearest friends present and involved and made to feel like our wedding was the most fun they’d ever had. It was the driving force in all of our details and all of our festivities. Because it was the second wedding for both of us, we chose to solely invite friends instead of family. We planned a weekend of events – Friday night tacos and karaoke instead of a rehearsal, morning yoga the day of the wedding to calm nerves and start the day off right, a double decker bus tour of NYC for the cocktail hour, and a pajama brunch at the hotel the day after the wedding.

Urban Glam Wedding in Long Beach

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Erin Hearts Court

Today’s wedding showcases the result when two styles fuse — one with a modern organic background, and the other on the more traditional side. Shalina and Chad’s wedding blended these aesthetics beautifully, using marquee signs, fuchsia flowers, and traditional ceremony pews to tie everything together. Thank you to Erin Hearts Court, Krista Jon, and Christina from Archive Rentals for all your wonderful work here!

From the event planners, Archive Rentals: Salty and sweet; coffee and tea; she and he… their 11 years in the making! With her Filipino and Indian heritage and his all-American Minnesota upbringing, Shalina + Chad’s union was a merging of opposites in the best of ways! While Shalina envisioned a modern meets organic design, Chad’s vision veered towards the traditional. The result? A perfect pairing of a church ceremony with an alternative after-party at an industrial NY style loft space, The Loft on Pine!

Colorful Wedding at Terrain

Garden Weddings

No matter how many times we see rain on a wedding day, it never appears to put a damper on the newlyweds’ faces. Amanda and Rich were all smiles for their color-filled wedding day at Terrain at Styer’s, one of our very own long-time favorite venues! Ruffled vendor danfredo photos + films nailed it behind the camera, while Fresh Designs Florist brought the bride’s dream floral visions to life.

From the bride, Amanda: My husband Rich and I visited Terrain, our venue, for a coffee several months before we got engaged. We loved how beautiful, rustic, and romantic it was while also feeling laid back and cozy. Terrain’s vibe informed much of our wedding planning. We knew we wanted to get married, and we knew that we wanted all of our guests to really enjoy celebrating with us and to feel like they were a part of something special too. As we planned, we tried to imagine our wedding from the perspective of our guests and make everything as easy and fun as possible.

Stylish Williamsburg Wedding

Modern Weddings

Photos by:

Pat Furey

If ever there was a couple that exuded style from every pore, it’s today’s couple in this wedding from Pat Furey. The groom’s blue suit is sharp to a T, the bride’s bouquet by Fox Fodder Farm tied with an Hermès scarf is all kinds of chic, and her silk gown by Johanna Johnson is completely irresistible. Color us smitten.

stylish Williamsburg wedding - photo by Pat Furey http://ruffledblog.com/stylish-williamsburg-wedding

From the bride, Jackie: Mike and I both agreed we wanted a wedding that felt intimate, that felt very New York, that felt very relaxed, that was full of good food; we wanted to share an intimate moment with our nearest and dearest… and then let loose and really celebrate. We live in the East Village and just across the bridge in BK was the Wythe Hotel. They fit the bill with their gorgeous indoor/outdoor space complete with foliage, exposed brick, a huge beautiful bar and oodles of built in ambiance. Fall seemed perfect – golden leaves, a chill in the air and a dream of donning a leather jacket with my wedding dress. What we got was green leaves, unseasonably warm weather and a torrential downpour to tell the grandkids about. We couldn’t help but laugh about the ridiculousness of it all.

A theme isn’t really our thing. Colors on the other hand… Jewel tones are my jam. I love love love raspberry, maroon and deep pinks. Pair that with deep greens, shades of cream, off white, ecru and accents of gold and I am in absolute heaven. That being said, the color scheme really only pertained to our flowers and the place cards. Everyone has their own style and we wanted them to be able to wear what they wanted, what they felt good in.

I can’t remember the root of it, but I wanted dip dye place cards. Some places said beet juice, others said grape juice, some said cranberry juice. Don’t be fooled, when it comes down to dying thick card stock, you need dye. I bought two shades of RIT and got down to business. It was time consuming to say the least, but I loved the way they turned out. Mike hand wrote the names of each guest. Table Numbers: This might be a little offbeat for a wedding but we have a thing with skulls. Tattoos, ceramic skulls from Mexico, hand drawn ones, decoupage plates from John Derian – you name it, we have them. I wanted to subtly incorporate that into the wedding. We hand stamped a skeleton couple holding hands with a heart in between them on the envelope on our Save the Dates. Our invites had hand stamped and embossed skeleton couples dressed to the nines on the envelope. Our table cards each had a hand drawn skull courtesy of Mike. We were going to keep them all and frame them, but a few went mysteriously missing. =) I wanted signs but couldn’t figure out the best way to do it. We enlisted a very talented friend with some serious X-acto knife skills who cut each letter out by hand and and glued them onto printed paper. Some of them were even strung together into a tiny banner for our card basket. Bless her and her crafty skills.

Whimsical Engine Room Wedding

Romantic Weddings

With a timeless color palette of pink, gold, and blue, it’s all but impossible to go wrong. Sarah and Branden embraced these colors on their wedding day in Georgia with Casto Photography & Cinema and Cote Designs, celebrating a love for each other surrounded by the most important people in their lives. This wedding has a bit of everything, so let’s jump on in!

whimsical engine room wedding - photo by Casto Photography http://ruffledblog.com/whimsical-engine-room-wedding

From the photographers, Casto Photography & Cinema: High school sweethearts Sarah & Branden envisioned a destination Georgia wedding celebrating their new life in the peach state while incorporating their love for their hometown in Maryland and love for the Baltimore Orioles (Branden is a pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles organization). They wanted to create a day that was both unique but would remain timeless. Incorporating the chippy brick walls of the venue, hints of copper, a bold color palette of blues and pinks, paired with sunlight streaming through the windows and classic pairings, Sarah & Branden’s wedding was truly one of a kind and a reflection of their sweet love.

California Orange Grove Wedding

Modern Weddings

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

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

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

Fuchsia and Emerald Wedding at Villa Woodbine

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

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

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

Scottish Chic Wedding in Portland

Bohemian Weddings

Photos by:

Hazelwood Photo

Today’s wedding is a definite case of “Where do we begin?”. Everything about Meghan and Bobby’s wedding — from the lush, organic floral arrangements done by Selva Floral Design to the boho-meets-industrial vibe — is worth falling head over heels in love with. Thank you to Sarah of Hazelwood Photo for capturing the day and Social Hour Events for taking care of all the coordination!

Scottish chic wedding in Portland - photo by Hazelwood Photo http://ruffledblog.com/scottish-chic-wedding-in-portland

From the bride, Meghan: We had a kind of boho, industrialist vibe in mind, with some key Scottish influences! My husband and I met in Amsterdam in the Netherlands where we live, but he’s from Scotland. His family flew over from Glasgow for the wedding and we wanted our wedding to reflect who we are now, but also where we’ve come from! We were looking for a really raw, natural and open space whose natural beauty would be our main decoration. We really wanted an unadorned and natural aesthetic. We absolutely found that in the Yale Union, a former laundry factory built in the early 1900s. The wedding took place on the top floor which has wall to wall windows and many skylights which flood the space with natural light. From there, it was really about building a wedding aesthetic that built around that gorgeous space.

We wanted the raw, white, industrial elements of the venue to be the backdrop and Sarah’s florals and floral installation that she created as an altar made up the rest. This aesthetic really captures our personal style, but we also thought it best suited the venue which we wanted to be true to and at the same time, fussing too much over any one detail seemed like it would distract from the joy of the occasion. More than anything, we just really wanted to have a lot of fun! I mentioned it above, but having a few fun elements with reference to our past and our present life in Holland was something we tried to do here and there. Merit Badge handled our bar service and they were fantastic! We LOVED them! Our two signature drinks were the “Glasgow Mule” – a nod to my husband’s native Glasgow and the “The Old Dutch Bike” a reference to our life in Amsterdam in the Netherlands. While we worked with Anders Printing for all of our signage, the creative was actually designed and hand drawn by my husband Bobby. He’s been drawing funny little sketches since the day we met and they’re one of the many reasons he won my heart. They’re so charming and cheeky and sweet. Macklochrie was the moniker we used for all our signage and was our Instagram handle as well. It’s a combination of our last names – Mackendrick and Lochrie. Although Bobby is from Scotland, my last name is of Scottish origin, so somehow this funny combination of our names is still true to both of our Scottish roots (his being a lot more recent than mine!)

We were so, so lucky to have our first choice of vendors for literally every key element of the wedding. The first two vendor wins started with Sarah Blasi at Selva Floral Design and Sarah Morrison of Hazelwood Photo. Sarah at Hazelwood Photo was referred to me by my brother and his wife. She had done a beautiful job capturing the wedding of a friend of theirs (who also happened to get married at Yale Union) and I knew instantly when I saw her work that she would capture the day in the way that we would want – unscripted and natural. Sarah at Selva Floral Design was the first vendor to be hired and frankly, I credit Sarah with not just creating the most beautiful floral arrangements I have ever seen, but for making our wedding vision a reality. You’re starting to see a lot of work like hers on the Portland wedding scene, but Sarah is really the OG of this kind of beautiful, natural aesthetic. I can’t even really explain her work in a simple sentence. She doesn’t just create arrangements, she builds installations. She’s a creative powerhouse and we’re so lucky to have had the chance to work with her. She’s an artist.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Well, I would say that despite best efforts to stay calm and enjoy the process, you will find yourself at a few junctures where you’re just a bit stressed out of your mind! You’re pulling off a production! That said, focus on finding vendors to partner with that you can trust, who respect your vision and who are just good people! We worked with THE nicest people we have ever met and this is in addition to being really the best in the industry. Focus on finding the right space and good food and don’t worry about the rest! It’ll all come together! Try to keep it as unscripted as possible, but somehow organized and then you won’t have some kind of freakout moment if things don’t go to “plan” because there really isn’t one! It’s a beautiful party and should be a lot of fun for everyone- most of all the bride and groom! We had a blast at our wedding!

Wedding Music:
Bridal Party Processional: Bach’s G Major Suite Prelude
Boys and Flower Girl Processional: “Shebag Shemore” (Traditional Celtic piece)
Bride’s Processional: “Here Comes My Baby,” Cat Stevens (live instrumental cello)
Recessional: “We’re Going To Be Friends,” White Stripes (live instrumental cello)
First Dance: Loch Lomond
We didn’t do a traditional first dance, but we did a play on a Scottish tradition. Normally this song is played at the end of a wedding in Scotland, but Scottish weddings run LATE, so we brought it in earlier, so that no one would miss it. Basically, all the guests come together in a big circle and the bride and groom hold hands in the middle facing each other and everyone sings along and rushes in and out towards and away from us holding hands and stomping their feet. It’s honestly one of my all-time favorite moments at any Scottish wedding. It brings me to tears every time! It’s a sad song about two lovers who have to be separated, but will meet again on the banks of Loch Lomond in Scotland. It’s particularly special to us as my husband is from Glasgow and Loch Lomond is just outside the city, so is a much beloved local landmark.

Romantic Old Souls Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

onelove photography

The Villa San Juan Capistrano is truly one of the most beautiful venues out there. It’s got a bit of Old World charm to it, which just so happens to be perfect for KC and Andrew and their wedding! onelove photography captured the whole day behind the lens while Growing Grace Floral Design created floral arrangements that are nothing short of stunning.

From the bride, KC: The wedding vision that we came up with as a couple represented us because the venue we chose was intimate, romantic and timeless. We wanted our wedding to be a comfortable setting for our family and guests that we don’t get to see too frequently. We are both pretty easy going people, and have both often been told that we have “old souls” which is why we both liked the idea of the design feeling rustic with lots of wood, greenery and pops of coppery metallic pieces.

It was important to us that all of the people that were able to come that day feel appreciated as their presence was what we valued most. That’s what comes to mind when thinking about why we chose such a wide variety of desserts, so there could be a little bit of something for everyone. Why we chose the Photo Booth company that we did, because we wanted our guests to have a good time. It is also why myself and one of my bridesmaids hand made all of our wedding favors, because we were hoping that all our loved ones would feel the thanks we have for them and how they contributed to our lives and the people we are today.

A lot of the design was brought to life by KC’s step-mom Rebecca and her friend Kerry. They spent countless hours coming up with ideas to make the day unique. There was a moss covered “L” to represent our married last name “Lang” that was created by Kerry and attached to a vintage gate that Rebecca had found out an antique shop. The containers for the centerpieces are something that KC was particularly found of. She wanted to have wooden planters mixed with lanterns, but to use the lanterns as another terreriums. Michelle with Growing Grace Floral Design did an amazing job of making the centerpieces flow together almost like a runner down each of the guest tables. One nostalgic contribution used for the pictures that was parked out front of the venue, was KC’s grandfather’s 1931 Ford Model A. It was restored by her grandpa and will be kept in the Aman family for generations to come. It was lovely to have that additional vintage touch in photos that day.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Planning a wedding is much more detail oriented than we could have ever imagined. We had over a year to plan and still were down to the wire only a week or so before the wedding finalizing details. My biggest advice would be to be sure to reserve the venue as soon as possible, then work on what you want your wedding to feel like and hone in on that for details. We wrote our own vows, which was lovely but I wish we had made more time to memorize them that day. On the day of, all of the time and effort spent to make the day come together will seem like it went by so quickly. So be sure to take it all in, enjoy every minute of the whole day and remember you’re starting life’s journey with the person you love most in the entire world.

Vibrant Eclectic Wedding in Palm Springs

Bohemian Weddings

Any day is a good day for a Palm Springs wedding, like this one from Brian Evans Photography. With a never-ending assortment of colorful blooms and one of the most stylish couples we’ve ever seen (Petal and John Paul met while working at Louis Vuitton), you’re all but guaranteed to fall in love. Chic Productions and The Bloom of Time did beautiful work designing the event and floral decor for the day!

From the photographer, Brian Evans Photography: Petal and John Paul met when they were both working at Louis Vuitton. With a couple like that you know their wedding is going to be packed with style. Within a few minutes of meeting Petal and John Paul I knew they were going to be an amazing couple to work with. They chose to say “I do” at one of the most iconic properties in Palm Springs. From the floral covered antique wedding arch to the beautiful invitations and the couple’s impeccable attire, this wedding was packed full of gorgeous details.

Protea, roses, marigolds, persimmons, thistle, snowberry, coxcomb, orchids, eucalyptus, and early fall foliage withstood the heat, looking fresh, fun, and festive! The couple loved the color turquoise, which is woven throughout the details of the wedding. The bride honored her Persian tradition serving desserts and menu items inspired by her culture, but favoured the non-traditional in choosing fashionable flower halos for her maids instead of hand-held bouquets.

As much as I love seeing all the wonderful details, it’s the real moments that make a wedding special. This wedding was full of them. A secluded first look that took John Paul’s breath away. Petal walking down the aisle radiating with happiness. The wonderful words spoken about the couple. John Paul and his daughter sharing a dance that lit up the entire room. It may have been 110 degrees that day, but it could not have been a more perfect wedding.

Whimsical Retro Inspired Wedding

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Vanessa Velez

A retro inspired photoshoot with a color palette of blues and reds is just what the doc ordered for today, so we’re thrilled to share this beauty from Vanessa Velez, Soco Alicea, Rodri Studio. Loosely inspired by The Notebook, this shoot explores the imagined wedding between Allie and Noah with a lovely ceremony vignette and vintage inspired details aplenty.

whimsical retro inspired wedding - photo by Vanessa Velez Photography http://ruffledblog.com/whimsical-retro-inspired-wedding

From the photographer, Vanessa Velez: As an avid reader and total romance addict Soco Alicea planned this wonderful shoot inspired by the epic Notebook novel. While I had seen many shoots done with this idea, we had yet to find one that actually got inspired to create their what if wedding. So we decided we wanted to take it upon ourselves to actually create the magical wedding that would have been in the Notebook if the main characters had gotten to the altar on screen.

When our designer Rodri came on board he simply created magic and with the inspiration of the bicycles and the color scheme we came up with he created a creative and fun ceremony setup. We wanted to really incorporate the idea of the vintage feel and the water so we really worked with having a lot of details and colorful set ups that had the story embedded in each vignette. It was all about creating stories inside the story we where conveying on the shoot.

Coral Wedding with a Flower Ceremony Backdrop

Romantic Weddings

Who doesn’t need a nice dose of bright colors in winter? Allison and Chris’ whimsical wedding uses a color palette of coral and grey with a beautiful array of flowers and succulents, including dahlias, garden roses, and craspedia. Artistrie Co., Life in Bloom, and Midwestern Bride did beautiful work here!

From the photographers, Artistrie Co.: This Rivers Restaurant wedding is what dreams are made of. With floral design by Life in Bloom, make-up by Joanna B Artistry, hair by Debra Petrielli, coordination by Midwestern Bride, and DJ-ing by Toast & Jam, where can you go wrong? That’s a dream team of Chicago wedding vendors if I’ve ever seen one! Add that to a beautiful outdoor setting along the Chicago River, and you have found the most perfectly adorable wedding ever. Allison and Chris’ summer soiree was bright, cheerful and perfectly them.

In honor of it being Sunday, Allison had the most adorable little mimosa bar set up in the hotel room as the ladies got their hair and make-up done. There was even a little sign that said “Sundays are for mimosas” which I couldn’t agree with more. Allison’s bridal suite looked out onto LaSalle Street where the couple would meet to see each other that very afternoon. The bridesmaids dressed in bright coral dresses with aqua blue necklaces and the men donned light gray suits with coral ties — a perfect combination for summer! This wedding party was so much fun to work with as we traveled around the city for portraits. My favorite stop was a bright teal painted building featuring a large mural of a moose blowing bubble gum. The wedding party lined up in front of this mural with their own version of bubble gum which made for one of my favorite photos of the year.

When the wedding party arrived to Rivers Restaurant, the festivities were ready to begin. The ceremony backdrop by Life in Bloom was a showstopper. Allison, Chris and their wedding party stood in front of a soft white curtain featuring floating vases of flowers as the couple exchanged their vows to one another. As I learned during their engagement session, Allison is a self-proclaimed confetti queen. Naturally, she had packets of confetti for each guest to toss as the newlyweds walked hand-in-hand down the aisle. It was a beautiful ceremony! Afterwards the patio transitioned to the dining space for their romantic riverside reception. The patio featured long tables, chevron linens, brightly colored blooms, succulent name cards, and beautifully strung bistro lights. Guests enjoyed the views of the city from along the river as they dined and sipped on the couple’s signature drink: Michigan apple sangria. The whole day was perfect from start to finish.

Surprise Holiday Elopement Brunch

Wedding Design

A holiday elopement brunch? Get out of town, because you just mentioned three of my favorite things. This styled shoot from Jenna Bechtholt Photography and Dandy & Fine Parties pairs a chic brunch celebration with festive holiday decor, using gold and black in the chicest of ways and adding punches of bright red and soft pink floral accents.

From the event designers, Dandy & Fine Parties: We absolutely love elopements celebrated with an intimate group of closest friends. We also love the idea of a wedding brunch, set with a fancy pants mimosa bar. Then add the holiday season in with all of it’s lovely rich jewel tones and soft, velvety textures. And on top of it all, the bride and groom are surprising their friends who have no idea they have just eloped! So, they casually send out their online invitations for a Holiday Celebration to throw them off track. Then, they officially announce their elopement at the first cheers of the morning!

As the guests arrive they are invited to belly up to the Bubbly Bar where they can build their own holiday mimosa in gold sugar rimmed glasses, with a choice of apple cider, cranberry juice, pomegranate juice or rose water. Then they can top it off with extra festive garnishes like cinnamon sticks, sugar dusted cranberries, rock candy sticks, rosemary or pomegranate seeds. Now is the the time for that first cheers of the morning… let the celebrations begin!

It’s time for brunch! Everyone sits down to a table setting decked out in lush, wintry glamour. The black velvet table runner is topped with romantic, voluptuous floral arrangements, and the taper candles in gilded candlesticks add extra regal glamour. Vintage glassware in pops of green and blue jewel tones grace each place setting. The china is topped with cranberry linen napkins carefully tied with black velvet ribbons with gold polka dots and thoughtful, calligraphed name cards. Gilded eucalyptus also makes an appearance to add that last fine detail. To get extra festive, mini green garlands are tied to each chair back. The celebration goes on for hours, pretty much all day, as the bubbles keep flowing! A beautiful wintry day of gathering around the table with the best of friends and celebrating love, that will forever be cherished.

Autumn Lakeside Proposal

Wedding Design

This styled proposal shoot from Bradley James Photography and The Day’s Design came together as soon as the designer spied a gorgeous invitation suite from Wedding Paper Divas. As soon as we saw the stationery for ourselves, we understood the temptation! The scene begins with a romantic indoor proposal, followed by lakeside portraits just as beautiful as the happy couple themselves.

autumn lakeside proposal - photo by Bradley James Photography http://ruffledblog.com/autumn-lakeside-proposal

From the event designer, The Day’s Design: The days are getting shorter, the air is getting cooler and the world is taking on a golden brown hue. We’re welcoming autumn rains, velvet touches and evenings lit by candlelight. It’s a clear sign that engagement season is just around the corner. When I saw Wedding Paper Diva’s dreamy invitation suite with its fairytale-like lake scene the whole story just came to life. With mixed metallic and touches of grey blue, we imagined a lakeside story filled with sequins and wheat grass, where rustic meets elegance and love was surely to thrive. The perfect place to start to the journey to “I do”.

Chicago Warehouse Wedding

Blue Label, Romantic Weddings

Chicago’s Salvage One has long been one of our favorite venues for industrial weddings — it’s simply the perfect backdrop for a variety of so many different styles. Beth and Brandon chose to contrast the industrial space with romantic decor and floral design, bringing on board the talented Artistrie Co., A Stem Above, and North Shore Weddings and Events to round out their vision!

From the bride, Beth: I wanted my wedding to be the most amazing day surrounded by my closest family and friends. I wanted everyone to laugh, feel the love and good energy in the room, and most of all be smiling and have a great time! It was important to me that the day felt intimate, cozy and comfortable for everyone there.

I did not have any color theme as I usually tend to love neutrals, blacks and gray. I loved the brightness and the delicateness that the white/lighter color flowers brought to the wedding. I loved Salvage One for its brick walls, concrete and romantic darker lighting and I wanted to include design that complimented that natural setting. One of my favorite pieces of the wedding were the mismatched lace table runners that my mom and I found from all over the country. We started collecting them and each one was special in its own way and I love how they pulled together the gorgeous table settings. I was also lucky enough to have my sister in law Alissa do all of the graphic design work for the wedding, so everything we printed was tied together. The invitations, to the welcome bags, to the programs all had a similar theme which I loved! She also designed a logo for us that we used on a wide range of pieces throughout the wedding. See attached for an example of the logo used on our program.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Make sure your wedding is the most amazing party you want to be at and never want to end! There are so many details, questions, decisions to be made, so try to remember to have fun with it and don’t stress about the small stuff! Also spend the most time on the details of the wedding that are the most important to you. Brandon and I knew we wanted our dance floor packed the entire evening, so the details around the music were very important to us. We found an amazing band (Front of House) and had so much fun working with the band to talk through songs and the theme for the night!

Wedding Music:
My mom found an incredible folk guitar duo from the Old Town School of Music in Chicago. They were an adorable couple and they played an incredible variety of Bob Dylan songs which we loved hearing and knew everyone in attendance would enjoy as well. “Don’t Think Twice its Alright”, “Shelter From the Storm” and “Forever Young”.

Organic Blush Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Today’s shoot is one of those that just stops us immediately in our tracks. The delicate blush pink and neutral palette paired with the organic floral design and the beautiful images from Tamara Gruner Photography all add up to pure magic that we couldn’t possibly resist! And the bride’s bouquet with a hint of artichoke styled by Bare Root Flora? Utter brilliance.

organic blush wedding inspiration - photo by Tamara Gruner Photography http://ruffledblog.com/organic-blush-wedding-inspiration

From the stylist and florist, Robyn of Bare Root Flora: The inspiration for our shoot was a desire for a sense of feminine romance. We chose a sophisticated, elegant color palette of blushes, greys and golds that married beautifully with the pines and dramatic desert rocks of Castlewood Canyon, where we set our scene. A stormy, grey day was the perfect complement to the look.

We kept the look on our beautiful bride simple and natural, with loose, flowy hair and soft makeup. Her two-piece gown from Emma & Grace was dreamy and romantic while still feeling fresh and contemporary. We wanted the flowers to capture the same romantic, organic feeling. Bare Root Flora paired textural dried artichokes with soft garden roses, chocolate Queen Anne’s lace, sweet astrantia, soft silver tree protea and lush foliage and grasses in a loose and lovely bouquet finished in blush silk ribbons from Silk & Willow.

We wanted the accompanying tablescape to be an extension of this dreamy, romantic aesthetic. The table was set with gorgeous silk runners from Silk & Willow, which echoed the wind and the colors in the canyon. The napkin detail was a particularly lovely focal point for the table, which was set with romantic tableware from Anthropologie. The hand lettered place cards from Miya at Layers of Loveliness were the perfect finishing touch. The finished look was just what we wanted, dreamy and romantic but with an almost effortless sense of sophistication.

Modern Romantic Wedding in Provence

Wedding Design

Obviously I’m not going to pass up the the chance to add a little more Provence in my life, right? These images from Greg Finck‘s workshop, styled by Branco Prata and with floral design by Laetitia C. Fleurs d’Atelier, have positively taken our breath away, as Greg’s images always do. Branco Prato’s inspiration stemmed from the play of dark against light and still life imagery, all of which is explored beautifully here.

modern romantic wedding in Provence - photo by Greg Finck Photography http://ruffledblog.com/modern-romantic-wedding-in-provence

From the event designer, Sofia Ferreira of Branco Prata: The world is fast becoming a small village and these days everything and everyone seems to be connected! You can go from one place to the other in minutes, you can experience new things every single day. We live in an era where everything is possible and all the things that exist around us, can in fact inspire us! Light Workshop was just that, a gathering of people from all over the world, with different visions, cultures and expectations, so for me it was important to create something different, something that touch them in more ways than one.

I started to dream about the shoot the minute I woke up at 4 am thinking about the amber stone! When designing for a shoot, it’s normal to be overwhelmed with ideas and different concepts, but for me this time around it was quite clear: a modern couple in a decadent, dark and old setting, inspired by still life paintings! We always look for the bright side of things, even in photography we are always chasing the perfect light… for this shoot I wanted to turn things around and explore the dark side of things, after all the famous quote from Pythagoras “If there be light, then there is darkness.” was the best way to end the Light Workshop experience!

Destination Hawaii Wedding at Puakea Ranch

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

Bikini Birdie

Give me a destination wedding in Hawaii any day of the week, and I’m one happy girl. Katie and Julian had family coming in from all around the world, so they wanted to make sure everyone could get to spend some relaxing time getting to know each other and share in their celebration. Thanks to Bikini Birdie, Vintage & Lace, and Grace Flowers for their beautiful work here!

destination Hawaii wedding at Puakea Ranch - photo by Bikini Birdie http://ruffledblog.com/destination-hawaii-wedding-at-puakea-ranch

From the bride, Katie: We envisioned something simple and small – neither of us really wanted to feel like the center of a huge amount of attention! We also wanted it to feel more like a family vacation in Hawaii than a wedding, so that our respective families – who came from Seattle, California, Wisconsin and New Zealand – could get to know each other over the course of a few days. Puakea Ranch was the perfect venue for this, because we could all stay at the Ranch together, rather than heading off to separate hotels every night.The venue, on the Big Island of Hawaii, was a beautiful, secluded, historic, luxurious ranch, so the look of the wedding came naturally from that – it was rustic, elegant, and laid-back. I loved blush and gold for colors, so Rachael started there to create the amazing tablescape, with touches of blue and a eucalyptus centerpiece.

Flower recipe: For flowers, we focused on blushes, whites, and creams with accents of coral, including garden roses, peonies, and eucalyptus accents. I wore a bridal lei of white pikake and all the guests had white orchid leis.

Our cute nametags were made by theapothecarybee on Etsy, and we designed our rings ourselves at Green Lake Jewelry Works in Seattle. At the last minute, we put together a cute setup for the guests to throw rice from at the end of the ceremony (picture attached.) But other than that, I didn’t do a lot of DIY – planning the wedding was hard enough :) We did have a good friend as an officiant, my cousin as our bartender, and my sister’s boyfriend DJed and handled the music during the ceremony, so all of that kept it feeling very personal and ‘like us.’

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Nothing groundbreaking – just communicate and be yourselves – do what you think is right for the two of you as a couple. Neither of us are big planners, so if that’s you, I would recommend having a wedding planner. Rachael at Vintage & Lace did an amazing job pulling all the design details together while incorporating my likes and dislikes, which was something I had no clue how to do on my own. I would also say, even though it feels like you have to make every little thing perfect, don’t worry about the small details too much! That’s not the most important thing in the end.

Wedding Music:
Processional: “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” Elvis Presley
Pick songs that remind you of dates, special moments and most importantly for the party, songs that make you want to dance and have a laugh. Other songs, “I Love You Yes I Do” by James Brown and The Famous Flames, Sam Cooke’s “Just for You.” Most of the playlist was 50s rock and roll, 60s soul and late 70s to early 80s indie hits. Warning: people will want to dance to matter how small the wedding, so even if you aren’t planning for dancing, be ready with the hits both classic and modern. We made that mistake and had to scramble and make an emergency dance playlist. It ended up great because the Brooklyn Hustle from Saturday Night Fever became a huge hit – it helped that my dad was an expert at the choreography!

“Ruth is an exceptional artist and artisan! She was very prompt to stay in communication with me throughout my ordering process. She worked with me to make sure that all my needs were met exactly. It was so comforting to work with her through the stressful process of ordering the perfect wedding invitations! I absolutely LOVE the way her products turned out, and cannot wait to send them to all my guests! Thank you SO MUCH Ruth, your kindness and professionalism have helped me more than you know!” ” – Emily D.

After living in the small town of Woods Hole on Cape Cod for nearly 11 years, Ruth, the owner and designer of Concertina Press, moved down to the sunny East coast of Florida to be closer to family.

Since moving south she’s added more tropical designs including seahorses, sand dollars and waves.
