Geometric Gems Styled Elopement

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Sonia Bourdon

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.

Bougainvillea Estate Wedding

Modern Weddings

Photos by:

The Melideos

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!

Mid-Century Geometric Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

This editorial shot by Hayley Rae Photography hits all the marks for a pinning recipe. It’s whimsical, mid-century mod, it’s geometric and the color palette this Vancouver wedding team chose is just heavenly. Cahoots Creative Happenings took the vision and ran with it, with florals by The Flower Factory. We will leave it to event stylists from Spotlight Events to take it from here!

From the event planner and producer, Spotlight Events: This mid-century geometric-inspired wedding styled shoot was a fun, creative expression from a group of Vancouver, BC’s top wedding professional. The shoot incorporated an intimate ceremony set-up, tablescape, cake display, lounge and a beautiful real life bride and groom! The concept was to showcase the geometric trend in an energetic and classy style.

Paige Petriw of Spotlight Events (producer and visionary of the shoot) chose the geo theme and a colour pallet of mint, teal, white and gold, and happily gave free creative rein to each vendor involved to showcase their talents fabulously. Cahoots Creative Happenings (designer) built so many of the elements from scratch and brought the mid-century inspiration to the overall design. The ceremony backdrop and geo chandelier over the tablescape were all crafted out of paper by the Cahoots Creative team. The newly renovated Stanley Park Pavilion was the perfect venue to provide an elegant and clean backdrop for the design. The two-piece dress from Pure Magnolia with tulle ballgown skirt and sequin top was the perfect fun and bubbly attire for the bride, combined with the groom’s pop of colour bow tie from Beaux.

Jasmine Hoffman and her team provided hair and makeup for the bride creating a laid back glam look. The flowers by The Flower Factory were modern and classic at the same time. The three tiered cake created by The Cake and the Giraffe was stunning with a marble base and water colour painted teal on top. The hexagon detail in gold and teal brought in the energetic geo theme. The stationery was hand-crafted by Kait Creative to add the perfect final touch to the design. Rentals from A&B Partytime Rentals and Loungeworks brought style to the essential elements, including chairs and linens. Everything was captured beautifully by the talented Hayley Rae Photography (photography) and Premier Love (videography).

Romantic Botanical Garden Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Today, we’re heading into Chicago to find some lovely garden wedding inspiration in the midst of this beautiful and bustling city. With Beso Weddings & Events at the forefront of the conceptualizing and Kristin La Voie Photography behind the lens, it’s no doubt this styled shoot was going to be anything but amazing. It’s full of rich ruby reds to start off with, and it’s rounded off with impressive color accents like gold and champagne that Natural Beauties Floral, Inc. were clearly beyond thrilled to play with; those floral designs are out of this world!

fall wedding ideas - photo by Kristin La Voie Photography http://ruffledblog.com/romantic-botanical-garden-wedding-ideas

From the photographer, Kristin: When we initially sat down with Gabriela of Beso Weddings & Events, we knew we wanted to create a European-inspired wedding look set in a venue that was not your typical Chicago scene. Chicago Botanic Gardens has numerous gardens, each with its own personality and style, and their English walled garden was the exact look we were after; romantic, colorful, and intimate. Every detail was chosen with this precise vision in mind and thoughtfully designed and executed perfectly by Gabriela and our amazing team of vendors.

Even if your wedding is set to take place in the fall or winter months, white is still a beautiful color to use in and around your wedding decor to enhance your color palette of choice. We love the concept of using stark white crossback chairs like these at an indoor or outdoor wedding ceremony. It makes any ceremony chair decor really pop, especially with those deep and moody, cool weather colors seen here.

Did we mention how much we love patterned linens on wedding tables? It’s so much more eye-catching than your classic and crisp white tablecloth, and it provides another glam touch of added style to your wedding tablescapes.

Floral-Filled Carondelet House Wedding

Romantic Weddings

No matter how many houses we see at Carondelet House, it never loses its appeal. It was a perfect fit for Rachel and David’s wedding captured by Valorie Darling Photography, which was a day full of some of the most striking hot pink flowers arranged by The Little Branch. Orange Blossom Special Events truly outdid themselves with the coordination on this one!

Floral-Filled Carondelet House Wedding - photo by Valorie Darling Photography http://ruffledblog.com/floral-filled-carondelet-house-wedding

From the bride, Rachel: We got engaged 6/21/14. David planned an amazing surprise proposal at the Abbey (because it was where we had our first kiss). He tried to convince me we have to go for a friend’s birthday. When we got there he told me to keep walking toward the back and I finally came to a stand still when I got to an empty room with two huge cameras, roses and champagne. After, he surprised me with an engagement party (80 of our family/friends) at a friend’s store. We had the BEST night and left a few days later for Italy and Israel for two weeks to celebrate.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Plan quickly so you can relax and enjoy the process! Also remember that things really will go wrong (like a lot of things) so make sure you just go with the flow and enjoy your day.

Wedding Music:
Bride’s Processional: “At Last,” Etta James
First Dance: “Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me,” Mel Carter
Our cocktail hour was all Gipsy Kings! And the dancing was a fun mix of 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s and current music (think Madonna, Prince mixed with Don Omar and Haim)

This Calligrapher’s Wedding is Elegant Bliss

Elegant Weddings

What an absolute treat this wedding is! From the perspective of Allison Kuhn Photography, we get to see another talented wedding pro work on a wedding and it’s her very own. Bride Megan is a calligrapher so naturally, when it came to her own nuptials, she pulled out all of the stops and designed a stunner. Of course, all of the paper goods were amazing, and like the rest of the wedding, the florals by New Creations Flower Co. were beyond dreamy.

pink wedding bouquet - photo by Allison Kuhn Photography http://ruffledblog.com/this-calligraphers-wedding-is-elegant-bliss

From the photographer, Allison Kuhn Photography: Megan and Chris were married this past May at the Separk Mansion in North Carolina. Megan is a calligrapher and created and designed a gorgeous wedding. Every guest had watercolored escort card in addition to a silk ribbon at their table with their name calligraphed upon it. One of the most stunning details were Megan’s black, purple and gold invitation suite which she designed. To compliment all of Megan’s amazing details, Melanie of New Creations Flower Co. created a beautiful floral design upon the tables utilizing black candles throughout purple and dusty pink florals. The green ring that Megan wore was Chris’s mom’s ring who passed away several years ago. The couple was all smiles the whole day, and it couldn’t be a more perfect wedding.

Elegant African-Inspired Mountain Wedding

Elegant Weddings

There’s something so beautiful about each wedding set against a mountain backdrop. Utah native Tyler Rye Photography captured Raynesha and Dominic’s beautiful day, and he documented all of the impressive decor by Forevermore Events and beautiful moments, even when the rain started pouring. With a strong desire to incorporate their African heritage throughout their wedding, bloomers flower & decor took cues from Raynesha and Dominic to use South Africa’s national flower and the latest hot bloom, king protea, in their arrangements. We could go on all day about this beautiful wedding but the pictures speak better for themselves.

elegant Utah weddings - photo by Tyler Rye Photography http://ruffledblog.com/elegant-african-inspired-mountain-wedding

From the bride, Raynesha: I wanted to be on top of world when I said forever. I wanted to capture the love and the way my husband looked at me in total admiration. I always wanted to get married in the mountains or somewhere outdoors because there is something so magical about nature. I envisioned a little bit of everything. I wanted touches of rich colors and gold to give a regal feel. I wanted to bring a small touch of African symbolism to celebrate our heritage. Our colors were blush, wine, and gold. Our theme was rustic elegance with a touch of African inspiration. My husband got crafty and decorated the broom we jumped over to commemorate an African-American tradition. He used burlap fabric from Michael’s which was wrapped at various stages up the handle with burgundy and gold ribbons from Ace Hardware using a hot glue gun and gold craft wire. Instead of pouring sand for unity, we used dirt from our childhood homes to join together and we plan on using that dirt to plant a tree at our first home.

Santa Barbara Sunset Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Milton Photography

The lovely sunsets on the west coast are always inspirational and they bring the most brilliant shades of pinks, blues, oranges, and tints of gold peeking out. What I love about this Milton Photography shoot is not only did WINK! Weddings style it to mimic those gorgeous colors, but the photos themselves are bathed in those same hues. Such artistry right there! Speaking of artistry, how beautiful are those blooms from CocoRose Design? Here’s a great tip to keep in mind: one of the best places to infuse color in a wedding (or a shoot!) is through the florals!

Santa Barbara weddings - photo by Milton Photography http://ruffledblog.com/santa-barbara-sunset-wedding-inspiration

From the event designers, WINK! Weddings: When Pantone announced their colors of the year, we knew that while beautiful, they could pose a challenge stylistically for couples. Rose Quartz and Serenity are two colors that have bold, set definitions in the minds of many, and we really wanted to focus on using them in a way that wasn’t so black and white. Varying tones of blushes and blues helped bring this idea to life, along with incorporating the natural elements and textures of our amazing backdrop. We also wanted to showcase the versatility of this pallet, and we did this by offering alternate table top elements but keeping key pieces like centerpieces, tables, and large furniture items the same. Take all these elements, add the golden light, cotton candy skies, and Justine Milton, and you end up with a dreamy styled shoot that will inspire you beyond 2016.

Desert Bloom Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

There’s nothing quite like the boho wedding trend lately. It’s got equal parts glamour, vintage, and modern all rolled into one very pretty wedding package. When you’re doing a shoot with this inspiration style in mind, it’s almost a must to host it in the desert. In this Jennifer Fujikawa Photography shoot, this concept came to life and just bloomed. Thanks to the lovely lace dresses and the wonderful tablescape, this shoot had its fair share of elegance while keeping with the earthy, desert vibe. Naturally, FlorUnique took to the surroundings as inspiration and brought in bouquets decorated with succulents, baby pink roses and peonies, protea, and accents like peach hypericum berries and blue thistle. No matter what your style is, this inspiration shoot is one to definitely check out!

From the photographer, Jennifer Fujikawa Photography: This is an elegant desert wedding inspiration shoot at Joshua Tree for the bride with a more elegant style that still wants to embrace the desert vibe and its natural surroundings. The dresses are lovely lace with a soft mint pastel for the bridesmaid and the table settings are elegant gold/white with blue crystal that echoes the colors of the desert.

Quite often, we get wedding inspiration featuring a wide array of creative ideas and color palettes that are so refreshing. This Knoxville fête is such a treat because it’s got a gorgeous couple dressed to the nines, lovely colors invoking lush and sandy landscapes with hints of oasis-style blues and greens, and out-of-this-world floral arrangements that are the cherry on top of this dreamy inspiration.

This shoot from Elle Rose Photo is your golden ticket for summer. Taking a break from the beloved blush pink and neutral palettes, Cheers! Chicago dreamt up this happy color palette of hot pinks, bright oranges, and bright blues. Hello Darling brought in the gorgeous florals that stole the show. Grab a popsicle and join us:

From the event planners, Cheers! Chicago: We decided to inject our shoot with bold, bright, vibrant colors in a fabulous variety of floral textures to spice things up for spring and summer! The florals by Hello Darling were truly the focal point of our shoot, showcasing individual, eye-catching arrangements in unique, asymmetrical gold vases that would make your eyes travel up and down the length of of our decor “runner”. Windy City Linen provided a soft pink lamour linen for our main table that we covered with a lace overlay, ensuring the delicate lace pattern detail wouldn’t get lost underneath the busy blooms. Chez was the perfect setting for our shoot with its chic, white wall s- we knew the striking colors and pops of gold from the flatware, geometric balls, urchins, and lanterns would really pop on a such a simple, clean space.

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.

Dreamy Floral California Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Seriously, could this wedding be any prettier than it already is? Photographed by Muir Adams Photography, Tracey and David’s nuptials are just dripping in luxe and elegance. And who could miss those amazing floral creations by Flora Organica Designs? They spanned the entire wedding and certainly made a strong statement of their own, especially that gorgeous floral arch covered in hydrangeas at their ceremony! This wedding is certainly one to see and go crazy over.

pink and white weddings - photo by Muir Adams Photography http://ruffledblog.com/dreamy-floral-california-wedding

From the bride, Tracey: My husband David and I met a few years ago (end of 2012). We actually went to the same high school but because he was four years older than me, we never really ran into each other. I met him one night when I was out with some girlfriends. I couldn’t help myself but to approach him, which is not something I normally do. We hit it off immediately and both instantly felt the connection. The rest is beautiful history! After dating for only a few months David planned an incredible surprise trip that summer to Europe. We traveled to Prague, Rome, and Paris. Even though his plan was to propose in Paris, he couldn’t wait and popped the question in Rome!

Kentucky Derby Inspired Wedding

Wedding Design

Are you still in need of some gorgeous southern inspiration for your big day? Thanks to Finnegan Photography, we’ve got this delightfully-southern inspiration on the blog today, complete with those larger-than-life bows and hats, a dapper gentleman, and florals out of this world from Joann’s FloristCarlson Premier Events pulled together a shoot that called upon equestrian elegance and loveliness of My Fair Lady. The blending of the two themes created a final product so darling! What’s captivated me most are the centerpieces and how the entire space was dolled up in magnificent blooms, perfectly matching the prim and properness of the whole shoot.

Kentucky Derby Inspired Wedding photo by Finnegan Photography http://ruffledblog.com/kentucky-derby-inspired-wedding

From the photographer, Finnegan Photography: This Savannah, Georgia vintage wedding is all about style and grace as the details come together to become an event filled with inspiration of Kentucky Derby elegance. The Barn at Red Gate Farms is the perfect venue to host a southern engagement. Vintage pieces draped in gold and pink accents compliment the classic look of black and white that could create a timeless set of wedding portraits. All of the beautiful details and wardrobe reflect an inspired “My Fair Lady” look, and the gorgeous Savannah backdrop makes for the perfect southern affair.

I am definitely blown away by these stunning Amanda Megan Miller Photography images. I could never have dreamed up wedding inspiration more opulent or luxurious than this! Clementine Custom Events surely has their work cut out for them to create such an elegant setting within the walls of the beautiful Lyric Opera. Because of how crazy beautiful the venue is, no stone was left unturned when it came to this wedding design, so what else would be fitting but rich fabrics; a ruby-hued bouquet and boutonniere by Field & Florist along with the most lovely centerpieces; and a golden table for guests. This inspiration is such a swoon fest for me.

From the event designer, Clementine Custom Events: The Civic Opera House has been a long time home of the Lyric Opera of Chicago. Built in 1929, it houses an interior of Art Deco design while being a major icon on the Chicago River. While operatic performances have made their mark on the stage, weddings have only been a whisper at this architectural treasure. Amanda Miller of Amanda Megan Miller Photography and Loreen Hospodar of Reenie Rose and Clementine Custom Events brought together a team of all-star Chicago vendors to set a different sort of stage at the Opera House to show off how spectacular a wedding could play out in such a grand space.

This was the sweetest day and oh how I wish I was a fly on the wall of this wedding, especially at Ashley and Luis’s ceremony during her vows. I am such a sucker for custom vows and ones that make you teary! Pie-Shoppe snapped the entire day and night away and I love all of the love between these two that were conveyed through the images. Orange Blossom Special Events and Foxtail Florals teamed up and infused the whole day with lovely muted colors, wonderful blooms, romance galore, and brilliant Mexican decor.

From the event designer, Grace of Orange Blossom Special Events: Ashley grew up in LA, she has an affinity for individuals with disabilities, and has been fortunate to travel to amazing places like India, China and more. Luis grew up in Mexico City, he has a strong entrepreneurial spirit and somehow manages to win almost every competitive game he plays. They both love midcentury style, they love to stay up to date on local hot spots, and have a precious 5 pound puppy named Ella.

Oh my goodness, everyone. Would you take a look at this wedding inspiration that Saltwater Studios shot? And give yourself a few minutes to let all of the gorgeous wedding details sink in? I love all aspects of this boho chic shoot, right down to that unbelievable bouquet with every color imaginable in the red spectrum by Savannah’s Garden Florist, the classic ruby red engagement ring tucked away in The Mrs. Box, and last but not least, all of the organic elements woven in so well. It plays in effortlessly with the natural elements and adds a decent heap of romance. Oh, I am just going gaga over this if you can’t already tell.

From the photographer, Saltwater Studios: A lot of boho details with some rustic natural elements sprinkled with a touch of romantic charm is the perfect way to describe this styled shoot in Southern NJ. Running Deer is a small golf course & venue tucked back in the woods and it played as the perfect backdrop for these amazing vendors to collaborate to create some beautiful inspiration. Antlers, lace and vintage pieces added to the elegance of this winter shoot.

Bohemian Wedding Under a Circus Tent

Whimsical Weddings

Circus tents are definitely not just for circuses, everyone, and Katie and Billy proved that to us. They had the most vibrant jewel-toned wedding, and I’m so thrilled they had Nessa K Photography photograph all of the stunning details all over Tuckahoe. LK Events and Design and Photosynthesis partnered up and beautifully brought a crazy-good boho feel to the day, with elements like dip-dyed cloth napkins, a to-die-for lounge area with a couch you have to see to believe, and floral crowns that rival any you see at Coachella. This wedding is that good.

Bohemian Wedding Under a Circus Tent - photo by Nessa K Photography http://ruffledblog.com/bohemian-wedding-under-a-circus-tent

From the bride, Katie: For the past 6 years we’ve lived in both Austin and then Los Angeles, and decided to be married in Richmond, VA, the city where we met. Since we’re both from Virginia, we were excited to be surround by so many loved ones and knew it would be a family/friends reunion of sorts. We envisioned a relaxed and intimate outdoor wedding with farm tables, BBQ, vinyl spinning and dancing under the stars.

Fun Nautical Inspired Vow Renewal

Wedding Design

This vow renewal is chock-full of sweetness, and I don’t just means all of the heaps and heaps of delicious desserts! Megan and Brent of Studio Castillero captured Melissa (of Melissa Biador Photography) and Nio’s day and love beautifully, along with the fantastic DIY creations the couple tackled, the to-die-for dessert bar, and those florals! Can we talk about the designs Penny Blooms did? I love Melissa’s eclectic bouquet and all of those eye-catching colors and blooms, from the dainty lilacs to the single magenta rose. Keeping it simple, the couple opted for centerpieces that offered table space while also adding uniqueness and their own spin to the wedding through glittered table numbers, long-necked vases with small bundles of flowers, and the highlight of their centerpieces: the names of US Naval ships tucked in.

Fun Nautical Inspired Vow Renewal - photo by Studio Castillero http://ruffledblog.com/fun-nautical-inspired-vow-renewal

From the bride, Melissa: My husband and I renewed our vows since we had an intimate ceremony about 8 years ago. Our renewal embraced our personalities as a married couple… from the nautical decor (representing my husband’s career in the Navy) and the feminine, fun details. Our colors were coral, mint, cream and blush pink with a touch of glitter and gold. We had many personal touches to our renewal. My husband wore his dress blues during the first part of the day our groomsmen wore casual attire and a handmade bow tie made by my cousin. The bridesmaids had different dresses that fit their personal style and each wore a statement necklace as a gift from me.

Downton Abbey Inspired Wedding

Vintage Weddings

Photos by:

Golden Hour Studios

Hello, self-professed “Downton Abbey” fan here, just thrilled over this beautiful wedding that landed in our inbox. I was immediately transported to the English countryside as I checked out the photos, and my ooh’s and ahh’s just couldn’t be contained. Amelia and Ari’s beautiful wedding shot by Golden Hour Studios had such a classic vintage feel, incorporating the timelessness of that “Downton” era. And let’s not forget those florals by Seasons A Floral Design Studio! The mix of deep berry tones with the lavender blooms amidst the grounds at Lyndhurst Castle is just such sight to love. A Downton Abbey inspired wedding indeed:

Downton Abbey Inspired Wedding

From the bride, Amelia: We wanted to get married in the Hudson River Valley, because we both grew up nearby water (Ari the Hudson River and Amelia the Great Lakes in MI) and it was close to our only living grandparent – 92-year-old grandmother of the groom. Ari and I met working in NYC, and shortly thereafter he was transferred to London. Ari became a fan of British style and I became a fan of Downton Abbey. The decor from the table settings to my hair (Lady Mary inspired fingerwaves) was inspired by the sophisticated style of the Edwardian Period in England. The cocktail hour featured Pimms Cup and tea sandwiches and the floral table arrangements included fresh fruits and vintage vases.

Peach and Gold Spring Wedding

Wedding Design

Peach and gold is such a magic combination and no matter what style your wedding is, this color duo just works so beautifully together. Shelley K Photography and her group of creatives including Station ’62 and Hearts & Petals decided to venture out into their hometown of eastern Oregon to see what goodness they could create for a peach and gold spring wedding in the rural backdrop. I think “create” is a clear understatement with this shoot when you see the photos. They pulled in the most gorgeous peach flowers to create such stunning arrangements on a contrasting wooden table and the vibrant colors just popped out. Always a great complement, teal was brought in and you see hints of it in the florals and in my favorite element, the bird-printed napkins. Love small details like that!

Peach and Gold Spring Wedding - photo by Shelley K Photography http://ruffledblog.com/peach-and-gold-spring-wedding

From the photographer, Shelley K Photography: Fellow eastern Oregon creatives and myself put together an amazing gold and peach themed bohemian wedding inspiration captured on film. This project was put together by a group of women living in rural eastern Oregon. We wanted to inspire local brides and others planning weddings in rural communities to not be afraid to step outside the box a little bit. Our bride and groom models were so inspired that they decided to throw a surprise wedding following the shoot. They called and texted all their friends the morning of the shoot and had an amazing 75 person turn-out.

Urban Garden Party Wedding

Wedding Design

Set in an industrial space and shot by the uber-talented Emily Sacco Photography, today’s shoot has me falling in love with how Revel+Bloom and Sweet Pea Flowers dressed up Moss Denver. While the space itself is edgy and urban, the look is contrasted with lush greenery and flickering candles sprawling all over that sweetheart table, seemingly-endless moss walls, and a swing bedecked in vines snaking all over the ropes. Kudos to the vendor team for bringing such a creative idea to life!

urban garden party wedding - photo by Emily Sacco Photography http://ruffledblog.com/urban-garden-party-wedding

From the event designer and planner, Revel+Bloom: In our shoot, we are featuring two custom built 16′ moss walls, garden-inspired swing, overgrown and raw sweetheart table design, an intimate and minimal ceremony space, and gravity-defying dessert display. The shoot was styled as “urban garden party” and we worked very hard to keep things original, inventive, and cutting-edge. The final product is very high-end and couture inspired. I really believe that readers will resonate with and be inspired by the work we’ve produced for this shoot!

Handcrafted Romance Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

The inspiration behind today’s shoot started with the bridesmaid dresses, and it’s easy to see why. The delicate pattern and flowing material are not only easy on the eyes, they also set the imagination running! The wonderful team of Amy and Jordan Photography, Ashley Gain Weddings, and The Flower Studio tied everything together with a focus on attention to handcrafted detail.

handcrafted romance wedding inspiration - photo by Amy and Jordan Photography http://ruffledblog.com/handcrafted-romance-wedding-inspiration

From the event designer, Ashley Gain Weddings: Romance. The art of a brush stroke can say it all. The inspiration for the the shoot came from the authentic feel of hand-crafted design. The calligraphy ink, the hand painted flowers on the cake, the florals on the bridesmaids dress to the tiny rosettes on the china. The art of taking so many tiny handcrafted details and making them an overall concept. It started with the bridesmaids’ dresses. While so many brides have a hard time going choosing a “pattern,” these dresses allow a bride that wants to do something different but still have that timeless-romantic look. Jenny Yoo’s dress spoke to that subtle yet intrinsic feel that we then incorporated into the entire styled-shoot. The dresses inspired the stationary with torn edges, a simple color palette and china with pink and gold saturated hues that added hints of soft-spoken glamour.

Dusty Blue and Cranberry Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

If I had to pick one word to describe today’s styled shoot, it would be “lush.” A table runner brimming with greenery and sweet red blooms, a smattering of red pears, and a scrumptious brunch menu topped off with a marbled cake are just a few of the top highlights here! Thanks to Jessica Gold Photography, Borrowed & Blue Occasions, and Oh Deery Floral for all your work.

dusty blue and cranberry wedding inspiration - photo by Jessica Gold Photography http://ruffledblog.com/dusty-blue-and-cranberry-wedding-inspiration

From the event stylist, Britni of Borrowed & Blue Occasions: I wanted to pick a color palette that fit the season we were shooting in, but was also so flexible that it could be used anytime of year! Our colors were Dusty Blue, Cranberry and Gold – this, surprisingly, was harder than I thought it would be. I chose to focus on the florals and let them do the talking. Briley, from Oh Deery Florals did an amazing job of designing florals that were out of this world! From her lush table runner to her GORGEOUS bridal bouquet, she exceeded anything I could have ever dreamed for the shoot.

Backyard Wedding in the Florida Keys

Beach Weddings

Care Studios

Today we’re bringing you to the beautiful weather of Florida for the wedding of Rhea and Bryan. This adventurous couple chose to exchange vows in the backyard of the beautiful Bella Mar house with the help of a talented team of vendors including Care Studios, Mile Marker Party Rentals, and Marathon Florist. Let’s jump in!

Ruffled - photo by Care Studios http://ruffledblog.com/backyard-wedding-in-the-florida-keys

From the bride, Rhea: We met for the first time at a little pizza shop on Atlantic Ave. in Delray Beach, FL. We wouldn’t start dating for another three months when we ran into each other through a mutual friend and talked over sushi. After that the rest is history. We are both laid back and easy going. We both are adventurous and spontaneous. Bryan kind of grounds my flightiness and idealism while I brings out the kid in Bryan. I love Bryan’s sense of humor and the way his simple way of living life. Bryan loves that she’s always herself and real no matter the situation. We chose the venue because it’s where Bryan’s parents live and we both love the Florida Keys. We chose the backyard of a house in the keys (The Bella Mar) because it was very down to earth and the vibe felt right.

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.

Not to leave out any ideas for the ring bearer, we love this idea of stashing the rings on a potted plant and writing “I Do” on the leaves for a beautiful display before the ceremony!

Hawaiian Garden Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

With all the tropical elements in today’s shoot from Angelica Chang Photography, In Focus Events, and Florals by Isabelle, it’s difficult to believe it didn’t actually take place in Hawaii. Heaps of exotic looking blooms, endless lush greenery, and a fresh tablescape are just a few of the items you won’t want to miss. Of course, we’re also pretty partial to the pops of pineapple in the decor…

From the photographer, Angelica Chang Photography: My vision of was to showcase a classic and timeless wedding inspirational shoot representing the elements of the green tones of palm trees, yellow pineapples and pink tropical flowers from the island of Hawaii. A hint of gold added a touch to the vintage rustic touch. With a group of amazing and talented creative wedding vendors, this absolute vision came to life.

With a timeless color palette of pink, gold, and blue, it’s all but impossible to go wrong.

This wedding has a bit of everything, so let’s jump on in!

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.
