Now that the excitement of Eclipse 2017 has died down, we thought we’d share this sweet pick-me-up to get Tuesday kicked off right! Maria and Brian’s California wedding was inspired by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, one of our own personal faves for creative ideas. Bride Maria set to work planning it all, bringing in The Little Branch to create lush floral arrangements and Mirelle Carmichael to photograph every detail and happy moment. Congratulations, newlyweds!
Prudence and Vincent’s big day is everything we love about summer weddings — bright flowers, a beautiful outdoor garden setting, and big smiles all around. When you add in metallic geometric accents, a unique gown by Amsale, and images and design from Emily Wren Photography and Belovely Floral & Event Design, well you’ve got a surefire winner. Congratulations to the happy couple!
What’s bright, fun, and funky and puts a smile on our face? This styled shoot from Kas Richards, LENZO, Poppy Culture, and One Fine Day. Full of joyous color and whimsical design details, we’re going to spend the rest of the day poring through all the great ideas — like that incredible oversized balloon display, and a ceremony setup straight out of a modern boho dream!
If there’s anything we’ve learned over the past couple of years, it’s that geometric wedding decor is here to stay. Geo design has found its way into nearly every aspect of the wedding day, from ceremony backdrops to centerpiece holders to even wedding fashion. To help you out in planning your geometric-inspired wedding, we’ve pulled together some of our favorite wedding ideas using clean lines and great shapes.
There’s nothing that’s more impressive than when vendors brainstorm to design a shoot that has us enthralled with the creativity and talent they have. Shelley K Photography and Haley Hueckman did just that and what came from their collaboration is quite amazing. One of the things that we’ve learned is that if there’s anywhere that a black wedding dress can work so well, this shoot has proved to us it’s in the desert, paired with the most eye-catching flowers by Bramble & Brass and those sultry jewel tones.
From the photographer, Shelley K Photography: This modern geometric wedding editorial took place in the high desert region of eastern Oregon. The shoot was styled with a love of geometry and equilateral shapes as well as deep jewel tones. The jewel tones paired beautiful with the neutral backdrop of the landscape and created great contrast. We also wanted to step outside the box with a black wedding dress. All florals were foraged locally in eastern Oregon.
Like brides, grooms are most certainly entitled to jazz up their wedding day threads. Classic tuxedo jacket styles in black or cream are always a winner, but picking out a navy blue, ruby red, or even emerald green tuxedo jacket will be sure to wow everyone. Mixing and matching different prints are another fun way to show your sartorial skills, like this groom who dressed up his casual linen blue jacket with a diamond-print bowtie. Quite snazzy to say the least!
Cutting open sweet-smelling citrus fruits like these and displaying them in and around your wedding tables are a fun way to dress up your tablescapes if they’re in need of more styling. They add brilliant pops of color and an even bigger plus is that they smell divine!
We see what stylists Taylor and Katherine from Aisle Planner mean when they laid eyes on the venue for this place: it’s the perfect spot for creativity to run rampant and theirs sure did with this trendy, contemporary wedding shoot by Cavin Elizabeth Photography. It’s full of razor-sharp lines, clean and bright colors, and just the slightest dash of romance from the florals by The Flower Shop; because we all need a dash of romance, right?
From the stylists, Taylor Hollman and Katherine Oyer from Aisle Planner: Sharp geometrics, defined lines and a stark black-and-white palette come together to create modern wedding inspo like you’ve never seen in this perfectly styled shoot. The Romantik Studio made for a killer setting—their clean-slate studio provided stylists Tayler Hollman and Katherine Oyer of Aisle Planner the perfect blank canvas to play with, and Cavin of Cavin Elizabeth Photography captured their vision beautifully. Hollman and Oyer dressed the bride-for-the-day in an ethereal pleated piece from The Dress Theory that softened up the sharpness of the shoot perfectly, and really set the scene for what we can only describe as oh-so-chic modern romance.
Lucky To Be In Love created a marbled invitation suite as mesmerizing as they come, and Amy Samuel of The Flower Shop crafted wild, sprawling floral arrangements that managed to feel both sharp and soft. Greenery as bright as it was lush played perfectly against soft white roses—and both were complemented by pops of pink and dusty lavender ranunculi.
The oh-so dreamy florals sat pretty against a scene that was sharp and super defined. The tablescape embodied the definition of modern with its black-and-white palette brought to life through polygon plates and place mats boasting oh-so-pretty patterns. The gold chairs provided by Folklore Rentals where the show-stopping and added modern and masculine lines to the scene. Gold flatware and airy gold-wire chairs added a touch of metallic that really brought the shoot to life, and—our favorite part—Jenny Wenny Cakes handcrafted a two-tiered cake that encompassed the aesthetic of the entire scene in one (super tasty) treat. The stylish spread was complete with unbelievable poke plate provided by Waters Catering and Fine Foods—and blackberry mojitos we’re still washing it all down.
In this absolutely breathtaking styled shoot from Sonia Bourdon Photographe, we saw creativity at its finest unfold. Mlle Artsy was the designer for this and rather than shy away from the cold temperatures, they embraced it, threw a pretty dress in and a bespoke suit for good measure, and dolled up this cave to no end. This setting definitely comes with ample inspiration, so Flore&Sens Atelier Floral created colorful arrangements that meshed perfectly with the aesthetic of the shoot and its surroundings. Who says all of the warm months get to have all of the fun styled shoots?
From the event designers, Mlle Artsy: This creative shoot was inspired by our magnificent wintry landscapes of Canada. We are blessed to have such breathtaking scenery here, and we had to put nature at the forefront of our styled elopement shoot. We were greatly inspired by the cave at Arbraska Laflèche, with its unbelievable stalagmites and gorgeous stone walls. The cave inspired our colour palette: shades of white, gold, rust and black, and completed our palette with a rich dark turquoise color that we used as our accent color. We incorporated geometrics, granite, geodes, quartz and gems into the shoot, which tied into the location. Those quartz perfectly complemented the stalagmites and stalactites found on site. We transform this cave into a mine of Ice and Gems. Finally, a winter wedding is not completed without furs, especially for their rich textures and warm colours.

I can admit it; my love for bougainvillea is near obsessive at this point. Fluffy and bright pink, it’s the perfect accent for every tropical climate. Wisely, Andrea and Brian chose to use the blooms throughout their wedding day decor with help from Lace & Likes and Siren Floral Co.. Their day was full of geometric and handmade accents in the absolute chicest boho way possible, and The Melideos captured everything wonderfully — as they always do!

After seeing this inspiration shoot by Taken by Sarah Photography, I think I may need to put Yemassee, South Carolina on my list of places to visit! I am in awe of how beautiful this shoot is, and how much Sarah of Taken by Sarah Photography contributed to it along with Magnificent Moments Weddings and Glammed and Groomed. It’s got such a delightful mix of modern and old; marrying ghost chairs and such an eclectic, geo-style cake with the setting of the Old Sheldon Church in the background. A beautiful vase that resembles a tree trunk houses pretty fringe tulips, anemones, and more while perched on a wood table. What a treat this wedding inspiration was!
From the photographer, Taken by Sarah Photography: The incredibly gorgeous low country of the south eastern shores has a never ending supply of beauty, but Old Sheldon Church ruins is a particularly surreal place. The church was burned down twice, in the Revolutionary War and the Civil War, and has a rich supply of history. Some of the grave markers there date back to the 1600’s and you can still stand at the pulpit which is completely intact. The entire area has a mysterious and incredibly old air to it, and it can be a very healing experience to spend time just gazing at all the land has to offer. This wedding inspiration is meant to be a different take on what a wedding can look like in the low country with a lot of organic and natural components, making it a part of the landscape.

Ready for a dose of boho inspiration? Enter this styled shoot from Laura Kelly Photography and Presh Floral, inspired by a nephew’s love of rocks and gems. The team added in a two-piece bridal combo, a wildflower bouquet, and a macrame table runner to bring the bohemian inspiration full circle, and we adore the result. Don’t miss the incredible cake with a marbled design and geometric elements!
From the event stylist and floral designer, Presh Floral: The inspiration for this shoot came from an unusual place – my seven-year-old nephew. When I asked what he wanted for his upcoming birthday, he responded “rocks and gems.” In pursuit of such a gift I headed to a rare mineral store in downtown Ottawa where I browsed through beautiful raw gems. As I read about the meanings attributed to different stones it occurred to me they could be incorporated into wedding decor as interesting and meaningful symbols.
In the market for some high-impact, low-stress wall decor to make your party pop? Look no further, because we’ve got Kathryn Godwin of Studio Cultivate with us to share how to make these great geometric wall shapes that will add some quick pizzazz to your wall (or cake, or plants, or so much more) in seconds flat!
For this project, you will need:
-balsa wood 1/4″
-gold spray paint
-hot glue sticks
-hot glue gun
-miter cuter hand shear
-glue dots or double sided tape
1. Measure out the lengths you want each geometric shape to be, using either an X-acto blade or the miter hand shear to cut at marked points.
2. If you don’t want to be exact with the angled cuts, the miter hand shear helps to estimate the proper cuts. As you work, align the pieces to be able to better decide on the angle to cut.
3. Do the same with the 3-dimensional pieces that will project from the base, cutting after studying the desired angle, and trimming if necessary afterwards.
4. With a dot of hot glue on each end, the pieces are easily assembled and quickly set. Hold in place while the glue cools.
5. Choose the preferred color of cardstock, apply hot glue to the base of balsa wood structure and press to the paper.
6. Gently cut around the edge of the balsa wood with an X-acto blade to cut away from paper sheet.
7. To temporarily adhere to wall, use glue dots or double sided tape and arrange in a clustered gathering.
-Odd number quantities always make for a more dynamic composition!
-Make a variation without attaching to cardstock paper and use as a cake topper.
-Use larger pieces of balsa wood and create center pieces, we pulled a plant through one for an interesting take on table decor.
Bright colors, geometric details, bold floral arrangements from Branch Design Studio — these are just a few of the pieces that make up this incredible inspiration shoot. The shoot itself was a photographer’s workshop, so the images you’ll see come from not one but five great photographers, including Dana Cubbage Weddings, Caroline Ro, Jenna Marie Weddings, Taylor Rae Photography, and Sara Bee Photography. Let’s jump on in!
From Dana Cubbage Weddings: In the South, it’s not very common to see a wedding that is funky and bold! We wanted to create something that would inspire brides to break the rules – to pave their own path – when it comes to their wedding day design. From the bold two-toned taper candlesticks, a non-traditional light grey wedding dress, dramatic voluminous hair, and a more relaxed look for the groom – this inspiration shoot was anything but Southern. This inspiration shoot was created as part of a workshop for photographers, hosted by five Charleston-based wedding photographers, with the purpose of educating and training second shooters.
The concept was brought to life by a team of incredible vendors, the project was such a labor of love for everyone involved. Dana Cubbage of Dana Cubbage Weddings, Caroline Howard of Caroline Ro, Jenna Moore of Jenna Marie Weddings, Sara Boyd of Sara Bee Photography, and Taylor Horton of Taylor Rae Photography teamed up together to teach this incredible workshop in downtown Charleston and brainstorm the idea for this beautiful shoot. Eliza Morrison of Branch Design Studio played a huge part in our floral-centric design, suspending bud vases + flowers from our corrugated metal backdrop, as well as creating the most beautiful centerpieces of succulents, copper-sprayed greenery, and black taper candles – a total conversation starter for guests!
Ooh! Events and Polished! Tabletop helped take everything to the next level by streamlining our modern and clean ideas with square dishes, black metal silverware, bold colored vintage stemware and mismatched seating around a dark wood farm table. A white fur runner, glass and copper decorative pieces, and bright colored napkins from EventWorks helped tie everything together.
The bride’s look was simple but still made a statement; a fitted, light grey Watters dress from our local Fabulous Frocks and dramatic makeup to match our modern aesthetic. Carrie of PaperDolls created a full, but loose, curly hairstyle that was perfect for our bride’s dark hair. To match, we asked Weston (our groom – and real-life husband of our bride, Lea) to ditch his tie at the last minute to match Lea’s off-beat look. Still wanting him to look wedding-ready, his anemone boutonniere was the perfect amount of class and formality. This inspiration shoot is a true testament to the amazing things that can happen when you think outside the box.

Hello Romance! This elegant photoshoot, captured by Kaysha Weiner Photographer, shows how glitz and glam fuse with elegance oh so perfectly. This combination of smoky blues, hues of pinks and metallic tones work for any season. Brilliantly designed by The Joy Parade and adorned with gorgeous florals by Rebelle Fleurs, every little detail has the perfect touch of glamour.
From the designer, The Joy Parade: This concept was pulled together after I began tossing around ideas for winter color palettes. Soft light pink with complementary neutral colors are really popular and they’re used all year around – but how can pink transition in a new way for winter? I liked the idea of pulling in the popular shades of pink and blush and ground those a bit more with greenery, and neutrals of smoky blue, brass, and gunmetal. The result is unexpected, romantic, clean, timeless, and a little bit moody.
Today’s styled shoot was inspired by the event designer’s trip to Iceland, and the Nordic inspiration just flowed from there. A modern bohemian tablescape, a cable-knit sweater cake, and plenty of candles and birch wood accents all shared the spotlight with a beautiful couple and a sweet pup named Zeus. LV Imagery and Blush + Bowties did absolutely stunning work here!
From the event designer, Blush + Bowties: It’s not often one hopes for grey skies, but on the day of our shoot, we were praying for overcast weather. As luck would have it, Mother Nature was on our side and delivered an incredibly atmospheric backdrop for our Nordic Woodland creative shoot. Three years ago I spent a week in Iceland for my honeymoon. It was an unexpectedly enchanting trip. The landscape was like nothing I had ever seen — mysterious, stark, and hauntingly beautiful. Since visiting, I have been dreaming up a shoot with Nordic design and a woodland twist.
The models/actors for the day, James and Annika, playing the roles of our Nordic couple Eiric and Asta, could not have been more of a pleasure to work with. The blond, blued-eyed beauties captured the story of our bride and groom. Hair and makeup artist Angela McQueen brought out the natural beauty of our bride for the day and finished her look with an ethereal braided crown. Renna Reddie, of Get Reddie, provided the cozy and whimsical attire for our couple, which reflected the feel for which we aspired.
Leslie, from Warehouse 84, who supplied the props and furniture for the shoot, generously offered up her private home set on several acres of land for the shoot. A wooden arbour adorned with a lush woodland garland, created by florist Jen Pogue, was the ideal home for our deer skull (nicknamed Ned). Birch stumps with drip candles and terrariums completed our ceremony set up. A cozy cable-knit sweater cake and copper cake, designed by Le Dolci, perched perfectly atop our wood plank table and antique ladder. We stayed simple with the table and chairs as a nod to the minimalist Nordic style. A garland cascaded across the table and onto sheepskin rugs. A lush berry-toned centrepiece and antlers were woven beautifully into the tablescape, which also included geometric terrariums, organic shaped plates set on wood chargers, gold flatware, and copper mugs. Custom-designed menus with a subtle geometric pattern and place cards were provided by Paper and Poste.
On site was a forest, where we placed our cozy lounge for the couple. A masculine leather couch grounded the space and was draped with furs and patterned pillows. As we lit the flame on the candles, the true romance of the scene came alive. One of my favourite moments of the day was when Zeus, Leslie’s dog, made a surprise cameo in the shoot and was quickly adopted by our couple for the duration of the day. Celebrating the bare but enchanting landscape, understated Nordic style, and raw woodland design was a superlatively satisfying endeavour. Lauren from LV Imagery beautifully captured the allure of the scene, and I am so happy to share the photos with you.
When I heard “modern, mid-century meets bohemian wedding” and “palette full of blushes, fuchsia, and pops of coral” together in the same sentence, I knew I was in for a real treat, and this wedding from Melissa Biador, Amorology, and Plenty of Petals absolutely did not disappoint. Add in some accents of gold and brass, and you’ve got this richly textured wedding full of totally enviable details that have put it at the top of our favorites list for this year!
From the event designers, Amorology: Our inspiration for Joanne and Andrew’s dreamy day came from this couple’s love of clouds and sunsets. We infused their modern, mid-century meets bohemian wedding with a palette full of blushes, fuchsia and pops of coral. Accents of gold and brass mixed with vintage glassware topped tables dressed with textured runners. Table numbers floated in golden frames and champagne toasts were poured over delicate clouds of cotton candy in blush coupes.
As a nod to our bride’s love for all things boho, a whimsical macramé piece served as the escort display, complete with gold script and bright, playful florals. Fun lounge pieces including a white peacock chair and a Moroccan rug provided a haven for guests to relax during the evening while the little ones entertained themselves at their very own table, sitting on mini wooden stools. Loved ones left with a sweet homemade treat—delicious cookies created from a special family recipe!

Settle in tight, because we’ve got something truly special to share today — which means we had a nearly impossible time narrowing down the images for this post. Photographer Carlie Statsky and her husband Gabe recently celebrated their ten year wedding anniversary, and decided to do a proper celebration with an utterly stylish and sweet vow renewal with their darling children in attendance this time around. Delbarr Moradi photographed the event, Engaged & Inspired helped with the styling, and Amanda Luu Floral Design shone on floral design duty.
From the bride, Carlie: We knew that we wanted to celebrate such an important milestone in our relationship with some kind of a celebration, but we couldn’t decide on the direction to take it in. One part of us wanted a big ceremony and an even bigger dance party with all of our friends and family, and another other part of us craved something really intimate and small so that our kids could feel more connected to the celebration. We ended up doing our vow renewal with just the two of us and our kids, Myles and Kaia, (Myles was 9 and Kaia was 7 at the time) and it ended up being such a bonding and beautiful experience that our family will remember forever.
When we first got married 10 years ago we decided to have it in a church because we were worried about the possibility of rain in mid-March, but we both really gravitate towards natural light and the outdoors, so this vow renewal was the perfect opportunity to do things the way we’ve aways wanted to… so we headed for the hills of Carmel Valley! Gabe and I are both wedding photographers, so we’ve seen some really beautiful places, but Holman Ranch has always been one of our very favorite venues in all of California with it’s expansive views over the valley, rustic stone walls and majestic oak trees, so it felt like the ideal spot for us. The whole aesthetic of the day was inspired our personalities, the spring season with all of its bright colors and fresh growth, and our love for all things natural. We wanted the day to be a reflection of who we are, so there were elements that represented each of us in the design.
I’ve always been obsessed with light and photography, and hexagons represents light bokeh to me, so I wanted to feature that shape along with other graphic elements throughout the design. When my husband isn’t shooting weddings, he’s designing and building fine custom furniture from wood, which is why we included lots of wood grain and hand-crafted elements too. I love that the details were so personal to us, and that Gabe and I designed the hexagon backdrop and gave built both the backdrop and the hexagon accent table by hand. Allison from Engaged & Inspired did such an amazing job interpreting and focusing our eclectic, bohemian vision and then bringing it all to life in the most beautiful and elegant way. Every single vendor involved in the day completely exceeded our expectations and blew us away with their creativity and their talent. We especially have to thank Delbarr Moradi for capturing the whole feeling of the day in the details and the moments that her eye was drawn to. I can’t think of a better way to begin our next 10 years together than by standing under a giant oak tree to speak our vows to each other again as our 2 children were witnessing our love for each other. We left that evening feeling so close as a family and so grateful for the experience.

Pink and gold with lots of natural greenery will always be obsess-worthy for me. This shoot from Milou + Olin Photography, Eighteenth Avenue Events, and LC Floral takes this classic combination and makes it just as inspiring as ever, adding delicate ruched details in some places and daring bejeweled elements in others. Make sure you check out the delicious selection of cakes and desserts!
From the event designers, Eighteenth Avenue Events: Nestled in the heart of the Livermore wine country, surrounded by rolling hills and vineyards, Concannon Winery is the perfect setting for a romantic, whimsical wedding. With the vineyards in harvest season, the grapes really give the property and extra special touch. Planted over 30 years ago, the grape arbor is a landmark of this property. Its entwined vines, trellised in an arch features clusters of hanging grapes of different varieties and beautifully accentuates the charm of the surrounding area. Normally seating up to 150 guests, we opted for a more intimate gathering, focusing on the detail of each guest’s place setting, favor and desserts.
Inspired by this year’s trends of rose gold and blush pinks, we created a tablescape to swoon over. Everything from the sheer La Tavola Linen to the exquisite farm tables and place settings featuring rose gold chargers, flatware and interesting geometric hurricane lanterns were used. Ivory lace dinner plates, blush goblets and salad plates set the overall romantic tone. Wooden menu signage is hand brushed with rose gold and our “Let Love Grow” signage points the way to the guest’s herb seed packet favors, all by Sweet + Crafty. The cascading floral table runner is a wow factor for any occasion especially paired with our other floral accents from LC Floral including our bride and groom’s chair detail, floral headpiece and ring and beautifully whimsical oversized bouquet.
We chose to do a decadent dessert bar from Ma Petite Maison Cakes which included a his and hers cake along with a variety of the couple’s favorite desserts such as pyramid shaped chocolates, “naked” mini cakes and donuts. Our pink glazed donuts also set on the place settings acted as the guest’s place cards with hand written names on each, written by Sweet + Crafty. The bride’s gown, a vintage feeling La Soie Bridal collection gown featured intricate lace detailing and satin covered buttons on it’s back and exquisite lace appliques cascading down a flowing tulle skirt. Other accessories, including Badgley Mischka blush pink shoes, Kate Spade bangle and Kendra Scott ring and earrings, all stay within the tone of the wedding while adding just the right amount of sparkle to complement the bride’s over all look. Her natural “rosy” makeup and romantic side swept hair style tie it all together.
The Mrs. Box heirloom collection ring box beautifully accentuates the brides teardrop diamond set in rose gold. Our blush watercolor invitations and other paper goods are unique and set the perfect tone of the intimate feel for the event. Our lounge area featured vintage furniture highlighted by rose gold geometric hurricane lanterns, candles and the absolutely perfect lighting that this venue has to offer. The wonderful Caroline Winata from Milou + Olin Photography beautifully captured the entire event and helped create memories that will last a lifetime.

There’s no doubt about it, modern weddings truly shine at LA’s SmogShoppe. Add in a “kick of style” as the bride says, and you’ve got this whopper of an event from Chaz Cruz Photographer, So Happi Together, and Bloom Box. With a black, white, and gold color palette, the geometric accents truly shine through!
From the bride, Tiffany: Len and I met during our last year at the University of California, Irvine (zot! zot!) through a mutual friend who was one of our groomsmen. We were together for 6 awesome years before Len proposed in Central Park, a place where we spent a lot of time during our years living in New York City. After the proposal, we moved back to Los Angeles to start our new life. Our wedding was the BEST. DAY. EVER. (thus far, of course). We know it’s cliché to say so, but it really was! It was everything we imagined it to be, plus more. Ultimately, we wanted the day to reflect us: modern and elegant with a kick of style. But we also wanted the day to be very personal.
In keeping with tradition, we were married in the same church my parents were married in 30 years ago, I used my mother’s veil and added a few extra details, and we used my grandmother’s wedding dress skirt as our veil during the traditional Filipino ceremony. These all added to the sentiment of the day and meant a lot to us and our family.Our journey began after meeting our wedding planner Nancy Park of So Happi Together and our photographer Chaz Cruz of Chaz Cruz Photography. Both have to be two of the most talented people in the wedding industry, hands down! Just take a look at the photos – they speak for themselves! Also, the most important thing to us was being able to relate to all our vendors on a more personal level, even after the wedding was over. All we had to do was tell them what we wanted and like the magicians they are, they made all our wishes come true. We loved Chaz’s work so much we printed all our engagement photos on canvas and displayed them on a bookshelf at the reception. We enlarged our favorite shot which ended up being the backdrop to our dessert table at the wedding.
Everything was pretty much seamless after Nancy joined the picture. She was always there for us, reliable, responsive, honest, and went above and beyond in every project. She is really everything you could want from a wedding planner. She was truly there for me the way a good girlfriend would be there for you on your wedding day. After signing with her, we now had time to create and DIY some of the details. We gold dipped crystals to go with the place cards, and my mother, grandmother and I made all of our detailed napkins from scratch. I really have to hand the credit to Fayaz at Bloombox Designs who really just took our floral and decor ideas to another level that left us breathless the second we walked into our reception venue. We sincerely love all of our vendors and appreciate everything they did to make our day special.
Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? First, hire a wedding planner. I know this may seem daunting, but they really know what they’re doing and will save your sanity. They will allow you to enjoy your day, and the process of planning. Trust me, you won’t regret it. Secondly, I would ask to prioritize the aspects of your wedding that mean most to you and go from there (aka splurge!). For us, the three most important things to us were photography, food and invitations. Urban Palate, our caterer, blew our minds on the day of the wedding, just as they did during our tasting. We’re planning on scheduling another tasting to celebrate our 1 year anniversary! Our cake was from Sweet and Saucy and was delicious! I wish I could go back in time to eat more of it. They executed our design inspiration perfectly! Our invitation suite was from Lucky Penny Paperie, a letterpress stationery vendor I found on Etsy. The calligraphy on our envelopes and place cards were done by Tammy Mendoza with Letters to You. Her handwriting is so unique and beautiful and we’ll cherish them forever. We got so many wonderful comments on them! Last but not least, I would ask you to savor every moment and have fun! Don’t just go through the motions because before you know it, your gorgeous day will be over! Also, remember to SMILE!

For all you engaged couples out there looking for some photo session ideas, look no further than this love shoot from Hello Miss Lovely. A boho-inspired look and a jaunt into the woods is just what the doctor ordered, and a bit of colorful smoke bombs is the icing on the cake!
From the photographer, Hello Miss Lovely: Into the woods we go, with flowers, DIY-ness, and of course wild & crazy love. I styled this inspirational bridal session with the help of Bella Flora and Salt on the Rocks. I wanted it to be rustic and romantic with an edge. In doing so, I made a tee-pee out of white birch wood branches, topped with a gorgeous floral piece, along with a matching bouquet. I also set up a “table for two” with a barn-wood table top and the same birch wood branches as legs. The decor was simple, yet romantic, using geometric terrariums, floral plates, and crystal and gold-rimmed glasses. I also baked a naked cake for this shoot! My GORGEOUS couple are total babes who brought in the element of edge and sweet-sweet love. We also played with colorful smoke-bombs at the end of the shoot for a pop of bold summertime colors.
Laycee and Jon’s wedding is so chock full of great design it’ll make your head spin. The creative couple (the bride is a designer while the groom is a cinematographer) had their hands all over the day, right down to the creative Save-the-Date video you’ll see at the very end. Laura Goldenberger and next saturday affairs did remarkable work on this one, as always!
From the bride, Laycee: We love the mid Century modern style of our venue Frederick Loewe Estate. The architecture has clean lines, geometric sculptures, design books with large Swiss typography, etc, which is all a cohesive design language used throughout our wedding. The surroundings of the venue is an expansive and beautiful desert-chic landscape. We used this contrast between geometry and organic shapes on everything from our invitation, place cards to welcome signs. We thought that this contrast creates more energy and interest rather than the hand-written, DIY look a lot of other weddings have.
All the napkins and table runners were hand-made from a few different geometric patterned fabric we chose. All the table numbers were house numbers from home depot, spray painted gold. The little geometric shapes holding up the name cards were made from clay, cut into unique shapes and baked in the oven to harden. Quite a few of the geometric shaped terrariums were made from 90s lamps, with the light bulbs and cords removed. The 2 white columns with the clear casing on top at our altar were also custom made. I designed our own letterpress wedding invitation, all the place cards, name cards, welcome signs and all other collaterals. The wedding favors were designed by me as well: a pair of letter press coasters in black and white, with gold patterns. Our Save the Date was a collaboration between Jon and I. I design for a living and he produces video for a living. This piece is a perfect example of the magic we create together, and a “making of” teaser of the real wedding invitation.
Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? I think the trick to planning a great wedding is to have a clear vision of your design aesthetic or theme from the get-go and stick with it throughout. Not to say everything needs to look the same, but if there’s a central theme threading everything together, the entire look will be cohesive. Changing minds about the look will often create disjointed experiences and confuse yourself as well. Also, do as much as you can but not over commit. Spend your money on the most important things like the venue and catering. It’s totally okay to let some of the smaller things go. They won’t have as big of an impact to your wedding as the venue and catering will.

Today’s wedding is one of those that require a little bit of extra time just to soak in all the good details. The all-star team of vendors, including Rachel Havel Photography, Calluna Events, and Perfect Petal, went all out on this one, bringing Kelly and Adam’s awesome vision of a modern wedding with on-trend geometric details to life in a very bright and cheerful way.
The bridesmaids wore corsages instead of holding the more traditional bouquet, and held triangles attached to cobalt ribbons for the ceremony. Meanwhile, the guests had mini tambourines to jingle after the couple’s ceremony kiss!
The bride’s father is part owner of Epilog Laser, and used their lasers to create the ceremony backdrop, the belly bands for the invitations, the cake toppers, and to engrave the Jenga tiles used as the couple’s guest book.
There was no shortage of chic lounge areas before the reception festivities, all decked out with the laser-cut geometric details and beautiful floral design for continuity!

A bride and groom with style for miles, a penchant for bright colors, and opted to visit a bowling alley for pre-ceremony celebrations? Sign us up pronto. Alli and Dan’s wedding day was more of a jovial celebration than traditional fanfare, bringing together the talents and offerings of Shannon Collins Photography, Natalie Diener, and Blooms by the Box to produce a true wedding for the books.
From the bride, Alli: When putting together our wedding, Dan and I contemplated for a while on what exactly we wanted our wedding to feel, look, sound, and taste like. We wanted the day to reflect what we loved the most: each other, our friends and family, delicious beer, yummy pizza, pretty things, and goofy dancing. We felt that it was important to make the event laid-back and approachable so the day could really be about the celebration. After sharing our lives together for over eleven years, we knew that the day would not only reflect us, but all the amazing, lovely community that we have shared our lives with over the years. We felt that the day should be an awesome party to share our gratitude to those that have watched us grow together and supported us through both the highs and lows. To extend the day even further, we had originally planned for a picnic in the park for fun games and mingling. The early rain that day had us move locations to North Bowl but it did not put a damper on our spirits. The community event turned out exactly how pictured.
Our wedding was playful, eclectic, warm, and colorful. We didn’t have a theme or a color scheme. We thought it would be fun to have the colors reflect the time of the year. We mixed patterns with colors, but stuck close to hues of pink with splashes of orange, teal, and gold. Given our budget and love for projects, we designed and produced most of the details of the day. My talented sister made the save the dates. We made teaser invites by hand and sent out goofy video invitations ourselves. We created the wedding programs on Paint and Word. We cut and sewed the strands for the backdrop and my sister helped build the structure for the backdrop. We have loved Dan’s mom’s famous Christmas cookies and were so thankful for the hundreds of cookies she provided for our wedding desserts. We painted and planted the succulents that we used for decor and later for guest favors. We created a DIY bar and Dan’s brother served as the bartender. Our Inner Circle that served as our wedding party came the day before the wedding to come set up chairs, tables, and decorations. After recycling vases from my sister’s wedding, we purchased flowers online and our talented friends arranged each of them. All of our friends were amazing in all of their support throughout the entire weekend.
Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Always keep in mind what is most important to you and your partner. Secondly, though, remember that this special day is a time shared with your lovely guests. That means, mix your music list up, keep your old Aunt Sue refreshed if it’s 99 degrees outside, and provide food for all your Vegan and Gluten Free friends. We spent months preparing the event nearly independently, but we knew that in order to truly enjoy the day, we needed to bring on some help. It was so great to have someone we trusted to take care of setting up the bar and lighting the candles so that we could kick back and relax with everyone.

Full disclosure: we fell in love with this styled shoot within seconds of seeing the first image. We’re no strangers to geometric wedding inspiration, but this styled shoot from JBM Weddings and Tinsel & Twine ups the ante by incorporating bold colors, inspired paper goods, and housing it all in a Brooklyn whiskey distillery.
From the stylist, Erica of Tinsel & Twine: The Kings County Distillery set up their operations in the Brooklyn Navy Yard in 2010, making it New York City’s oldest (legal) distillery. The stately brick building, which was formerly the Paymaster’s Office, is now home base for nearly continuous whiskey and moonshine productions. With a location just adjacent to Dumbo and the Brooklyn Bridge Park, it wasn’t long before locals started inquiring about using the space for weddings and events. Over the last six months, our Tinsel & Twine team has partnered with the The Kings County Distillery to bring those bourbon-inspired events to life.
We were thrilled to team up with some of our favorite local talents to produce a beautifully styled photo shoot. The building’s raw, industrial facade inspired us to create a visual story that married quintessential “Brooklyn” edginess with traditionally romantic and femme elements. To contrast with the space’s varied wood surfaces and overall whiskey brown tone, we established a color palette rich with pops of orange, pink, turquoise, and mint accented by rich gold details. This is especially true of the vignettes set in the Barrel Room, with bride and groom posing amidst a sea of aging bourbon. Strong lines and geometric shapes provided a modern element as a foil to the building’s existing stately architecture.
This color scheme, along with key textural details, can be seen in our florals, as well as the stationery by Fourteen-Forty and signage by And Here We Are. Our bride’s slim column gowns, provided by Gabrielle Bridal, have strongly angled bias seams and are balanced by a vintage fur capelet. Her gilded flower headpiece and belt by Hushed Commotion also add a bit of old world feminine glamour. The ceremony backdrop and fringed table canopy by Michelle Bablo create a sense of whimsy and unexpected color, making use of the venue’s overhead space. We are look forward to raising a glass and hosting very special celebrations at the Kings County Distillery.

I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to share this styled shoot with you all, my dear lovelies, and the day is finally here! An all-star team of vendors including Chellise Michael Photography, Viva Max Weddings, and Rountree Flowers put together some wedding inspiration full of creativity, whimsy, modern details and hints of geometric influence, and we couldn’t be more in love with the result.
From the event stylist, Viva Max Weddings: The recently expanded LIC event space Attic Studios is a combination of a cool raw loft space and a venue that has character and warmth. Clean white walls are balanced with wooden floors and a funky bar. This is why I wanted to use this great space to present a wedding look that is modern, funky, fun yet still bridal and elegant – a contrast that I know can mesh well in the wedding world. Heather of Attic Studios, Jessie of Rountree Flowers, and I, Viva Max Weddings, began to design a wedding look that focused on lines and color – we wanted something perfect for a couple that is creative, romantic, with a touch bohemian and not afraid of a little spunk. Our vision became something like boho romance with a modern art twist.
Our color palette included a spectrum of blues (ice blue, grey-blue, periwinkle blue, denim blue, navy blue) paired with bright chartreuse, hot pink and gold. This presented a cool tone with a lot of pop. It felt unique but also could work well across seasons. We really wanted to play with the use of line. Strong lines vs. Soft lines — this represented this blend of modern and romantic looks. During the ceremony, Rountree Flowers created an impressive and unique backdrop of soft ethereal fabrics draped behind the couple and then, as a creative contrast, we hung colorful string art dream-catcher-like details that really added impact and visual interest to the ceremony moment (great DIY project). The ceremony backdrop became something memorable and full of personality and the couple could hang the catchers in their home after the wedding to forever remember their beautiful day.
This design theme continued in the reception room. Since the space has fabulous windows we wanted to bring the guest’s eye upward to appreciate the NYC view. We decided it was necessary to take advantage of Attic Studio’s ceiling, so Rountree built wonderful golden geometric structures to frame cool hanging Edison light bulbs. The result was stunning and interesting to the eye. Those geometric lines were repeated on her table scape with gold cubes from CB2 and hand painted geometric shapes on the table runners. The lines looked bold and really great. The addition of Rountree’s elegant and soft floral arrangements beautifully complimented our color palette.
Wedding mornings can be stressful and every bride and groom deserves a little pampering on their special day. HanaKyle is a message therapist that specializes in wedding day jitters. I had her come in the morning and give our bride, groom, best man and maid of honor a little back-rub and reflexology before the big day began. Message therapy is a wonderful gift for a couple that enjoys a little relaxation. Everything came together beautifully. By combining the talents of so many amazing wedding vendors we made a shoot that really showed off the versatility of Attic Studios while presenting a look perfect for our boho artsy urban couple that is deeply in love.

If you’re still loving the gold and geometric trend like we are, this next DIY will be right up your alley. These DIY gem escort card holders are perfect to add a little pop to your reception tables, and they couldn’t be easier to make! Let’s jump into the images from Harwell Photography and instructions from Lemiga Events:
From the designer, Michelle of Lemiga Events: Lemiga Events is a wedding design and planning company based in Atlanta, Georgia. Hollis Wright is our Design Director and expert on all things handmade. Glam up your escort card display with these oversized gem escort card or place card holders. They’re so easy to make, and are perfect for your wedding or just a dinner party with the girls.
For this project, you will need:
-¼” wood blocks (available at Michaels)
-glue (hot glue or Aleen’s tacky glue work well)
-oversized acrylic gems – I found a big bag of assorted shapes and colors at Michaels, but you can also pick your color and buy in bulk here
-Liquid Gilding in the color of your choice (Optional)
-paint brush (Optional)
1. Use a line of glue at the bottom of each block to glue it to the bottom of the gem. Use a folded piece of paper to leave some space at the top of the block for the escort card to slide in. Let dry.
2. Leave your gem colors as is, or paint them all a uniform metallic with liquid gilding paint. Let dry.
3. Slide in your escort cards or place cards for instant glam!
Just when we think the geometric trend couldn’t get any better, this wedding shoot styled by the talented Juniper & Dash falls into our laps. Sarah of Juniper & Dash along with the photographer, Alexandra Whitney, wanted to focus on a richer, more autumnal color palette with various metals thrown in for good measure, and the result is a bright yet dramatic session full of wedding ideas and inspiration!
From Sarah of Juniper & Dash: When Alexandra and I decided we wanted to do something a little different we were both drawn to the idea of a geometric shoot. Looking into what was out there, in the world of geometric weddings, we discovered most of the existing work was in neons or primary colors. We wanted to focus more on a richer palette of autumnal colors so we incorporated plums, shades of mustard with pops of fuchsia and mixed metals – copper, brass, bronze.
Philadelphia offers so many awesome locations it was hard to decide on the one perfect for us. But upon seeing Maggpie’s new location, we were both unanimous on utilizing their rustic industrial space. When giving design direction to our awesome vendors we simply provided them with the color palette and the concept that we didn’t want the geometric element to be too kitschy. Bonus points for incorporating mixed metals.
Cheyenne and Danielle from LoveLeigh created the geometric pattern on the stationery that was carried through on the amazing cake from Philly Cake Maker. Peicha with Falls Flowers is equally as obsessed with texture as I am, and she brought so many different elements together in her bouquets and centerpieces! Then we incorporated the underside of the magnolia leaf in different aspects as it has a “coppery” color. It was so amazing working with Alex! Not only does she capture all the details beautifully, she is such a hard worker! Due to the cold weather on the day of our shoot and the lack of heat in the warehouse, we had some difficulties with the installation of the backdrop… Alex jumped right in there. You can’t ask for a more invested photographer! It’s always a little nerve-wracking when having so many people involved while attempting to create continuity throughout the shoot. All vendors on this shoot were SO spot on, it was a dream!

If you asked me to plan the ideal upbeat winter wedding, it would look exactly like this inspiration JBM Weddings and Ash Orzol. The duo wanted to design a winter wedding with a modern Aztec influence and plenty of awesome geometric and crystal touches, thanks to the team with Jove Meyer Events and 2H Flowers.
From the shoot designer, Ash Orzol: The inspiration behind the shoot was about bringing the Aztec/boho feel to an intimate upstate winter wedding. We wanted to keep things modern yet rustic so we weren’t taking away from the venue, because we wanted it to feel organic. I think it’s always best to make the wedding reflect the bride and groom but also be an extension of the surroundings.
We also wanted it to have an attainable DIY aspect to the wedding. We did this by creating handmade accents such as the painted utensils, the mobiles, the garlands and the dipped feathers for the ceremony. In order to really showcase what we each do as vendors, we decided to do an entire faux wedding instead of just doing a styled shoot.
Make sure you don’t miss the behind-the-scenes film from Love + Brain Films:

Every single detail of this styled shoot — and there are plenty of them — has me completely swooning. From the color palette of green, pink, and gold to the various garlands and geometric details, each element is utter perfection. Make sure you don’t miss any of the photos from Lauren Peele Photography, or the incredible floral arrangements by Kate Foley Designs!
From the photographer, Lauren Peele: I wanted this shoot to have a funky modern vibe to it, so for the tablescape I incorporated glittery animal name card holders that held geometric shaped name cards with emerald lettering. I love mixing textures, so I went with a gorgeous emerald velvet table cloth, a sequin runner, and pink/gold foil dot napkins. I mixed different colored copper and gold cups on the tables that held sparkly geometric swizzle sticks.
My florist, Kate Foley Designs, did an amazing job with the flowers. She hand painted gold tips on the succulents, and glazed some of them in glitter as well. She used bright pinks which really popped against the white backdrop and the brides dress. We wrapped the boutonnière and bouquet with sequin ribbons, because you can never have enough sparkle right? My paper vendor created a die cut, hand painted number for the table. I love how fun it is, yet still formal enough for a real wedding.
My goal for this shoot was to inspire real brides, so I was sure to include lots of DIY details, and the table runner was one of them. I found amazing sequin fabric online, and “sewed” it together using witchery stitchery. It was impossible to see the seam, and ended up looking very high end and expensive. The whole project was under $30; you can’t beat that!
I’m obsessed with marquee signs right now, so I knew I had to have one. They can be pricey, and I didn’t want to spend a fortune, so I went to a local flea market where I found a giant metal arrow, and I was able to talk them down to almost nothing. I recruited my hubby to drill holes around the edges for me, and I placed large round bulbs in the holes. The project was so easy, and the arrow really makes a big impact.

Somehow, someway, it seems we never quite tire of geometric wedding inspiration over here at Ruffled. So when this shoot put together by Lottie Fowler of Grit + Gold and Matt & Julie Weddings popped in, we got just a wee bit giddy. With no shortage of delish colors with geometric shapes and design, these images have inspiration for miles:

Something about geometric patterns always appeals to our modern sensibilities, so it comes as little shock that we love this shoot from Scott Michael Photography as much as we do. Little Cat Design Co. jumped on board to incorporate show-stopping details, like the intricate honeycomb backdrop, 3-D place setting trinkets, and bright floral design from Primary Petals.
From the photographer, Scott: Inspired by modern brides, we went out into the heart of the arts district in down town L.A. to create a hip modern wedding style. With a large industrial space, the City of Angels as a backdrop, and plenty of glittery geometric goodness in tow we set to work!
This shoot is very L.A. – from bright and organic flower arrangements to the sweeping bridges, and clean minimal styling. The little touches of gold glitter, and bold graphic patterns keep it fresh and fun. Meandering around the concrete jungle, our model looks radiant in a sleek Nicole Miller gown with geometric detailing. Much of the decor is great for a DIY bride, since it is largely paper craft. The hanging paper piece from Eva Black Design, was hand crafted with repurposed paper and glue.
