The Secret Garden Inspired Wedding in Ireland

Wedding Design

Photos by:

As Ever Photography

Like so many other young girls, as soon as I got my hands on Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden, I fell desperately in love with the beautiful scenes painted through Burnett’s use of imagery. It looks like Jennifer Corbett of As Ever Photography and I share this love, as the novel was the inspiration behind this lush styled shoot completed with the help of Lovebird Designs and The Irish Flower Farmer. And have I mentioned this loveliness takes place in Ireland?

The very same second we saw the floral chandelier in today’s wedding from Melia Lucida, Celebrate Events, and Celsia Floral, we knew we were in for something special.

We’d love to see more of these round ceremony spaces popping up in the future!

Backyard Elopement Inspiration for Valentine’s Day

Wedding Design

It seems like Valentine’s Day offers an unending supply of romantic wedding inspiration, which is precisely what we found in this styled shoot from Four Corners Photography and Amanda Jewel Floral Design. With a floral patterned ceremony backdrop, incredibly lush floral arrangements, and a table runner accented with love notes, this is the ultimate in inspiring wedding design.

Backyard Elopement Inspiration for Valentine's Day - photo by Four Corners Photography http://ruffledblog.com/backyard-elopement-inspiration-for-valentines-day

From the photographer, Four Corners Photography: I have photographed quite a few backyard weddings as well as Valentine’s Day weddings and I really wanted to create something to inspire backyard brides everywhere that they can have something beautiful, romantic, and timeless. I also wanted to create something that inspires you to think outside the red that comes with Valentine’s Day. I still wanted to incorporate a few intentionally red pieces (ring, lips, a few florals) and heart motifs (shape of the dress, hearts on the cupcakes), but tried to keep those things minimal!

Modern Minimalist Dallas Wedding

Garden Weddings

Ghost chairs, a seating chart arrangement with a unique neon sign, and one of the sweetest couples we’ve seen are some of the reasons why we love this Dallas affair photographed by Sarah Kate Photographer. With Stefanie Miles executing all of the details of the day, Rae and Kurt planned a modern wedding day with the most elegant color palette. To complement it, bows + arrows incorporated white and ivory blooms and heaps of botanical greens to add to the lovely minimalism of the day. What a stunner this fête was!

From the photographer, Sarah Kate Photographer: Rae and Kurt’s wedding was brimming with minimalist inspiration designed by Stefanie Miles and lush tropical inspired foliage by Bows & Arrows that added just the right amount of color and texture.  The couple hosted a small family wedding ceremony in their own backyard and chose The Nasher Sculpture Garden to host a large reception the next day!  Wolfgang Puck was there to serve up all kinds of fantastic dishes for the guests and The Grand Bevy bartended specialty beverages including edible cocktails.  Guests dined and danced among the sculptures and Sarah Kate captured all the fun!

Enchanted Garden Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Okay, you might need to brace yourself for this one. Samantha Jay Photography and A Garden Party sent over this incredibly stylish shoot that proves that you can have a garden wedding no matter the time of the year or the location. With how lush this entire shoot looks, it’s almost impossible to believe there was a snow storm outside just the day before!

Ruffled - photo by Samantha Jay Photography http://ruffledblog.com/enchanted-garden-wedding-ideas

From the photographer, Samantha Jay Photography: The magic that happens when several unbelievably talented vendors come together to make a styled shoot is undeniable in these romantic photos. What hoped to be a spring garden styled shoot was transformed into a breathtaking snowy adventure when southern NJ was hit with a huge snow storm the day prior. Loads of fresh greenery, yards of peach tulle and glistening gold accents make you forget about the snow on the ground and help to inspire what your romantic garden wedding could be like, in any season.

Wearing Her Sister’s Wedding Dress

Romantic Weddings

When Lillywhite Photography sent this wedding our way, we were delighted to read the background story. Not only is the bride in this wedding the photographer’s very own sister, but the siblings actually shared the same Pronovias wedding gown nearly two years apart! All Occasions Event Planning and Knot Just Flowers contributed their incredible eye for design and flowers for a day that’s truly relaxed and breathtaking at the same time.

From the bride, Jennifer: I wanted our wedding day to feel romantic and natural. I loved our venue and I wanted to take advantage of the natural scenery by focusing my details and decor to match the natural garden setting. We envisioned a romantic, whimsical, garden wedding; I mostly focused on shades of pink (specifically blush and coral), neutral tones, and greenery.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Stay flexible throughout the process, tastes and styles change and if you have a long engagement yours are likely to shift a little as time passes. Find vendors who you enjoy working with early on, trust their judgment and you will find they do amazing things with the creative freedom you give them. Enjoy the process and the excitement that comes with being engaged.

From the photographer, Lillywhite Photography: I am a wedding photographer and had the honor of photographing my sister’s wedding :) Little did I know on my wedding day that my sister would be wearing the same wedding gown as I did almost exactly two years later. Dress shopping was pretty hard for me because I had such a strong vision of the dress I wanted. Something lacy, but a different type of lace. Something simple, but that would truly be one of a kind. When I tried on my dress from Pronovias at Pebbles Bridal Shop, I without a doubt KNEW it was the one. When I saw my groom for the first time, I knew that he KNEW it was the one too. I felt so me & absolutely stunning in my dress. When my sister got engaged, we kind of threw around the idea of her trying on my dress too. I knew her wedding would be so different and it didn’t bother me at all to share it. I thought it would be a great way to save money and I wanted to get more use out of a dress so pretty! When she went to Pebbles Bridal Store to try on dresses, we brought my dress along with us. She tried on a few & when she tried on mine, I knew it was the one. She was completely glowing and the dress took on a whole new feel with her in it. Seeing her in that dress on her wedding day was such a full expression of the love we have for each other. Along with sharing the wedding gown, we also shared in being each others’ maid of honor. I really felt our weddings were an example of the sisterly love we have for each other.

Art Nouveau Irish Mansion Wedding

Paula O'Hara

The second my eyes ran across the words “Irish mansion wedding,” I knew I was in for a treat. Add to that the fact that some of Ireland’s most talented vendors participated in the day (Paula O’Hara, Alise Taggart, and The Informal Florist, just to name a few), and my giddiness was out the roof! Andy and Dermot’s wedding did not disappoint, with a reception that we’re sure to come back to time and time again for inspiration.

From the event stylist, Alise Taggart: Andy is originally from South Africa and is the editor of the very cool Huck Magazine, Dermot is from Ireland and works as a civil servant in London where they reside. When they initially started planning, they took into account how they wanted their wedding day to ‘feel’ – they wanted their day to be grounded in their Irish Catholic and South African Jewish roots, bringing together their families and closest friends for an intimate, rustic and welcoming day, but with a hint of art nouveau thrown in.

Bellinter House is a Palladian style Georgian mansion dating back to the 18th century set in the Irish countryside. Andy & Dermot decided to have their ceremony on the front lawn of the house under the ancient Weeping Beech Tree. On their way to the ceremony site, the guests filled handmade paper cones with natural confetti for tossing afterwards and we had mini San Pellegrino’s to keep them cool while they waited. The drinks reception was held in the main floor of the house where we had a photo booth set up and named the parlour after their beloved cat, “Pip”. For the dinner reception we used long tables instead of round with billowing tablecloths, hand dyed soft grey runners and tones of burgundies, scarlet and lavender intertwined with loads of candles. This really added to the intimate family style dinner that Andy and Dermot had envisioned.

Claire Ryan of the Informal Florist really created the most beautiful loose wildflower arrangements, walls of vines interlaced with fairy lights and a foraged branch hanging from the ceiling above the head table. The favours were my favourite as they were so meaningful. Andy had small ceramic bowls imprinted with a lace pattern taken from a piece of her Grandmother’s wedding dress made by a local artist in Capetown. We set a piece of Sally Williams nougat on top and tied them with a little note using velvet ribbon. After dinner, the tables were moved outside onto the patio to allow for dancing under strung globe lights in the reception room and the guests headed upstairs to the parlour for a beautiful cake spread by WildFlour Bakery and tumblers of Amarula and Jamison, another nod to their cultures. It was a gorgeous day had by all and documented perfectly by Paula O’Hara and Catch Cinematography.

Whimsical Garden Wedding in Dallas

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

Ben Q. Photography

When you’ve got a photographer as talented as Ben Q Photography, a bride who’s an event designer herself with Embrace the Day Events, and cheerful floral design by Holly Viles Design, how could you possibly end up with anything less than sheer beauty? Tie everything together with a Kate Spade theme and lots of color, and you’ve certainly got one for the books.

whimsical garden wedding in Dallas - photo by Ben Q Photography http://ruffledblog.com/whimsical-garden-wedding-in-dallas

From the bride, Amanda: As a wedding and event planner in Dallas, I’ve been given the opportunity to see a lot of different weddings – different colors, styles, themes, DIY projects, etc. When it came time to switch hats and be the bride, it was wildly overwhelming to narrow down the inspiration and decide on a style that fit my (then) fiancé’s and my personalities and depicted our love story well. And to be perfectly honest, I didn’t want to have a wedding, but my parents weren’t about to let me get away with that and I’m so thankful they didn’t.

It’s hard to beat the romance that garden weddings always have and the Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Garden is by far one of my favorite venues in Dallas so we knew without question, that would be our venue. Soon after the venue was booked, I reached out to some of my favorite vendors and had them “save the date” (aka send contracts). Combining the look and feel of the Arboretum with my husband’s love of modern style and my love for Kate Spade and bright colors, we decided “Kate Spade Garden Party” was the look we wanted to accomplish and our vendors loved the idea. We created the look by using bright colored flowers, fuchsia napkins, black & white striped table runners and personalized gold accents like a cake topper, chair signs & a gold foil print with our vows.

Personal touches are my favorite, so I jumped on the opportunities of buying prints that added a little something extra and printing photos of us to place around the reception. Of course, we didn’t get away without doing some DIY projects. One of my favorites was our “guest globe” that we found in a local antique shop and I hand painted. I also made the place card tassels and the place card display. As many people know, April and May were brutally wet and stormy in North Texas. Alex & I got married on the only sunny, rain-free Saturday in April and the day couldn’t have been more perfect. I am a daddy’s girl and also very traditional when it comes to the first time the groom sees a bride so I opted to do a first look with my dad and save the first time my groom saw me for when I walked down the aisle. Both were special moments that I’ll cherish forever. Our reception was epic. It was the ultimate dance party, kicked off by a surprise choreographer father/daughter dance to Uptown Funk. Like all good things, it came to an end and my groom and I shared an emotional and love-filled private last dance.

Carlie Statsky

Today’s wedding from Carlie Statsky is an expert study in blending garden wedding style with a bit of rustic detailing. Jesse and Mason spent an absolutely beautiful day together exchanging vows, toasting each other, and sharing their love with their closest friends and family at the lovely Allied Arts Guild.

From the bride, Jesse: Our wedding day was an unforgettable celebration of love with our closest supporters, our family and friends. The Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park, CA, a beautiful and historic garden oasis, lent an elegant and intimate setting for both the wedding ceremony and the reception, all meticulously brought to life by wedding planner, Bari Howard.

With a garden ceremony setting resonating with rustic simplicity and charm amid the beauties of nature, family, friends, and further accompanied by the soaring sounds of stringed instruments to a cocktail hour fueled by signature Moscow Mule copper mugs and delectable appetizers, the day was topped off beneath an arbor with a majestic dinner place setting, heartfelt speeches, and an array of dance moves with music provided by a DJ. The day couldn’t have been any more wonderful and picturesque, with lovely, yet creatively keen compositions captured by photographer Carlie Statsky. We are truly blessed to call this memory our wedding day.

Herb and Garden Wedding Editorial

Wedding Design

Spring has certainly sprung, and there’s no better season to host a herb and garden inspired photo shoot. This beauty from Lauren Schwarz Photography and Savannah’s Garden Florist takes oodles of lush greenery, fresh white blooms, and nods to gardening to the next level by blending them seamlessly with wedding style and floral arrangements. Make sure you take a look at the bride’s incredible wedding hair — I’m sure I’ll try to copy it for myself soon!

herb and garden wedding editorial - photo by Lauren Schwarz Photography http://ruffledblog.com/herb-and-garden-wedding-editorial

From the photographer, Lauren Schwarz Photography: Our team was inspired by all things garden and herbs. We wanted to create something fancy and luxurious out of simple things like potted herbs, Pear Tree branches, and moss. Set in the fabulous Maggpie Vintage Rentals warehouse, we transformed a corner into a garden greenhouse reception scene. The bridal looks were vintage inspired our stylist used lace to create an amazing headpiece and veil and switched her from a more formal look to a more simple dress with custom belt detail. We hope you enjoy this gallery with many different looks for Spring or Summer.

Southern Plantation Wedding in Charleston

Garden Weddings

Photos by:

Feather Love

There are few cities more romantic than Charleston, so native South Carolinians Cate and Tyler picked it as the perfect location for their springtime wedding. Next on the list was to find the perfect team of vendors, and that they did — Feather Love Events, YOJ Events, and Branch Design Studio, just to name a few! The day was full of inspiring floral design, beautiful fashion (like the bride’s Jenny Packham gown), and endless amounts of love.

From the bride, Cate: Tyler and I are both from South Carolina, and we decided early on that we wanted to get married in Charleston. We’ve lived in several different cities, and we knew our friends would be coming in from all over the country. Our wedding was the perfect opportunity to show them our roots and let them experience a little southern hospitality. We looked at several venues and fell in love with Magnolia Plantation & Gardens. The lush gardens were beautiful and inviting. The historic setting served as an inspiration for the rest of our wedding décor.

We currently live in San Francisco. Planning a southern wedding from the west coast wasn’t easy, so we enlisted the help of Katherine at YOJ events. I’m a graphic designer and wanted to create many of the elements myself. Additionally, my mom is an incredible artist. She designed and made many of the elements for our wedding, including the stained glass arch we were married under. We came to Katherine with lots of ideas. She provided us with great advice, kept us organized and helped bring our vision to life. One of our favorite elements was the cornhole boards. It’s a game we play every summer at the beach, so we wanted to incorporate it into the reception. The boards were hand painted by New Bohemia signs in San Francisco. They turned out better than we could have imagined and were a big hit with our guests.

Our biggest decision was finding the right photographer. Your wedding day goes by so quickly. The photos are what you’ll hold onto for years to come. Noa at Feather Love Photography was the perfect choice for us. Her images really tell the story of our wedding and capture the spirit of the day. It was important to us that our wedding feel like a big party. We wanted our guests to be able to relax and really enjoy themselves. Alicia at Duvall Events helped us plan our menu. A lot of thought went into the food, drinks and pacing of the reception to ensure our guests were always well fed and comfortable. The best part of our wedding was getting to celebrate with our friends and family, the people we love most.

Leaves of Grass Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass was always a source of inspiration for me, so I’m extra excited to bring you all today’s styled shoot from Jason Hales Photography, Bowman & Clark, and Alabaster & Ivory Events. Inspired by the wordsmith’s book of poetry, it brings together classic beauty and organic garden wedding ideas for a shoot that’s making us fall in love with the written word all over again.

From Allie Webber, Co-Owner of Bowman & Clark: We loved getting to design for this unique mixture of soft, garden inspired florals and more structured 19th century details. The arbor structure was covered in greenery and potted and hanging plants created a garden oasis. Wild arrangements, soft fabrics and pillows helped bring in the boho vibe. While the dark 19th century furniture and candlesticks brought depth and warmth into the space. The bride looked effortless in a gorgeous Winifred Bean gown, with her hair pulled back easily, and her makeup creating a natural glowing complexion. We loved the contrasting details and natural feel of this shoot and hope that it inspires a beautiful garden, boho, or 19th Century design.

Garden Wedding Inspiration with Antique Details

Wedding Design

When you combine the talents of Anna Delores Photography, Glitz Event Design Studio, and Knot Just flowers, the end result is absolutely magic. This styled shoot has the perfect amount of pink, burgundy, gold, and botanical wedding inspiration, and top it all off with an amazing Monique Lhuillier gown and we’ve fallen madly in love!

From the event designer, Glitz Event Design Studio: A romantic color palette, antique details, and a breathtakingly detailed blush bridal gown – these were just some of the elements behind our Garden Fairytale wedding inspiration. Hartley Botanica provided a beautiful setting that fully encompassed our vision, and was complete with arbor lined pathways, statuettes, and abundant greenery. The seriously pretty invitation set by Umama is the perfect opening to this whimsical soiree.

For the tablescape we wanted to showcase a dreamy and romantic look. We combined antique details and mixed soft patterns and textures with unique rentals from Pretty Vintage Table to create a fairytale-like scene. The ascot wood table and mix of tapestry and velvet chairs was softened by blush tone La Tavola Linens. For the table settings we paired blush depression glassware, gold flatware, mix-matched china, and crystal salt cellars at each setting. To draw further into the antique inspiration we incorporated vintage oil lanterns, gold taper candlesticks with blush candles and cloches with floral accents along either side of the centerpiece. The gold mirrored table set the stage for the noteworthy “Happily Ever After” cake provided by Frost it Cakery.

The chemistry between our real couple was undeniable. The bride looked stunning adorned in elegant BHLDN bridal accessories and a detailed blush Monique Lhuillier bridal gown provided by Nearly Newlywed. The enchanting look was completed with a braid inspired ponytail and ethereal makeup done by Crystal Huber Makeup. The groom wore a floral Grunion Run tie that paired handsomely with the boutonnière. The florals by Knot Just Flowers showcased a rich palette of reds, pink, and greens, with a feature of whimsical details.

Romantic Maui Wedding

Flying halfway around the world for an unforgettable fairytale celebration? Uh yeah, sign us up right now. Alisha and Rob’s wedding was indeed a Hawaii fairytale come true, trading in the sandy beaches for an elegant, botanical garden event. The incredible team of Tamiz Photography, Mandy Grace Designs, and Haiku Mill worked true wonders here!

From the bride, Alisha: We decided on Hawaii because it made perfect geographical sense as it was half way between our friends and families in Canada and Australia. Neither of us were keen on beach weddings as we wanted a more formal affair that was romantic and elegant but also contemporary and unique. While searching online for wedding venues in Hawaii we stumbled across Haiku Mill in Maui and it was exactly what we were looking for. The majority of our guests were travelling very far distances and we wanted to find a venue where our guests could experience a fairytale celebration they would never forget.

Our colour scheme involved all soft colours – shades of pinks & grey, ivory & gold accents. We had 6 months to plan our wedding so we didn’t have a lot of time for DIY projects. One project we did do was create personalized escort cards. We bought envelopes that were used as escort cards and wrote individual hand written notes inside to all of our guests. This was a big hit as it showed our guests how much they all individually meant to us. Another resource we found really helpful was etsy. It allowed us to have hand crafted touches such as personalized luggage tags as place cards for our guests.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? If planning a destination wedding make sure you hire an event coordinator that knows the quality local vendors very well as you may not have a chance to meet with any of the vendors in person. Also, try your best to find a venue that can accommodate a wide range of guests as you often don’t know your final numbers until a month before. We thought we were going to have 25 guests but ended up with 90 in the end.

Georgia Wedding with the Ultimate Naked Cake

Amy Arrington

You know those weddings where you can just sense that everything came together perfectly – so perfectly that the whole day seems like a dream? Well, that’s the feeling we get when we pore over this wedding from Amy Arrington (though we suspect her dreamy film images play a big part). Signature Weddings and The Perfect Poppy made Kimberly and David’s wedding a truly special one, with romantic touches and relaxed elegance for us all to admire.

From the bride, Kimberly: We wanted our wedding to be a reflection of us and a true celebration of love, family, and friends. We focused on keeping everything fun and relaxed and making sure that our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We were inspired by our beautiful venue and the storybook feel that it had and included details that hinted at our personalities and interests. Our main goal was to create a day that was filled with love and laughter and all of our family and friends creating happy memories together.

Some words that kept coming up while planning our wedding were “fairytale adventure”. David and I met at Disney World and were long distance for almost four years, which led to many adventures. It seemed natural to theme our wedding to one of things that was involved in building our relationship. The colors we chose were pinks and greens, which are a combination of our favorite colors. We worked together on making the signs for the bar and the guestbook and favor table and on painting the gold giraffe and bear figurines. One of my favorite decorations were the little robots that we had placed on the cake & pie table. Our first date was on March 14th – aka Pi Day – so we have always had a little joke about us and pie/pi. David also loves robots (he built one in school!) so the figurines were an adorable addition to our day.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Relax and have fun! David and I made sure to not take anything too seriously and to just have fun with every bit of the process. Focus on choosing vendors who you feel you can trust to execute your wedding the way you envision it and take their advice. Stay open to new ideas and different possibilities.

Wedding Music:
I loved all of the music at our wedding, but my favorite has to be our first dance song. We surprised our guests with a choreographed waltz to The Sleeping Beauty Suite and it was such a great moment to hear everyone gasp when we did our first big move! It is definitely an experience that we will never forget.
