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!

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.

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

Photos by:

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.

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.

Whimsical Engine Room Wedding

Romantic Weddings

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

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.

Seaside Wedding Inspiration Shoot

Wedding Design

Dreaming of a beach wedding? Today’s styled shoot from John Schnack Photography, Nicole George Event Planning & Design, Lauren Sharon Vintage Rentals, and Native Poppy has you covered. The team uses all of the beach’s natural offerings to create a ceremony and tablescape that’s utterly inspired, including a ceremony arch that we love so much, we wish we could move it right into our own homes!

seaside wedding inspiration shoot - photo by John Schnack Photography http://ruffledblog.com/seaside-wedding-inspiration-shoot

From the event designer, Nicole George Event Planning & Design: I wanted to create an elegant coastal inspiration unlike typical beach styled shoots. We focused on an ethereal, modern, and clean design with raw textures, a natural color palette of cool blues and tans, and gold and brass details. It was important for us to show couples that you don’t need flowers to create a beautiful event and designing around your landscape is key. Instead, we used a lot of glass bottles, driftwood, and fishing ropes and nets to adorn our tabletop and ceremony. Sea-grass, textural lounge furniture, and draping linens softened the look. My favorite part was balancing the rich landscape with delicate, sea-themed details.

Mackensey Alexander

New York City couple Emily and Robert made their way down south to Savannah, Georgia for their lovely DIY wedding. The couple make a living designing movie props, so it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that their big day would be full of quirky and thoughtfully handmade elements. Thank you to Mackensey Alexander and Ivory + Beau for your beautiful work on this day!

From the event designers, Ivory + Beau: Emily & Robert were probably one of the coolest couples we have ever worked with. This couple from New York City design movie props for a living. The week of their wedding the groom was even contacted by the company doing the Ben Affleck movie that was being filmed in Savannah. He of course had to turn it down explaining that while it was ironic the movie was being filmed at his wedding venue where he was getting married that week…

Joanne and Cody, a real-life engaged couple, were the perfect duo to model for this sweet workshop with Rhythm Photography, Phoebe Lo Events, and BLUUM BLVD.

Dutch Still Life Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photographer Sarah Kriner Photography describes this shoot as a “magical day,” and we only had to take one glimpse at these images before we believed her too. Sarah, along with a team of Aisle Ready Events and Isibeal Studios, imagined a shoot inspired by Dutch still life paintings with an opulent + rich color palette, which they topped off exquisitely with two incredible cakes from The Topping Couture Cakes.

Dutch still life wedding inspiration - photo by Sarah Kriner Photography http://ruffledblog.com/dutch-still-life-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Sarah Kriner Photography: This shoot was inspired by the opulence and beauty of still lifes in the Dutch Golden age of painting. Their contrasting light and the overwhelming richness of color, with details so vibrant you feel like you could walk into them, has always inspired me as a photographer and is something I strive for in my own photos. Creating a shoot around this has been a daydream of mine for a while, and the combination of watching talented people come together to make it happen and the hoped-for blanket of snow made it a magical day.

Colorful Woodland Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

I hope you’re ready for a burst of color, because you’re about to get it from this styled shoot by Caroline Ross Photography, Umbrella Events, and Green With Envy. The team dreamt of a Kate Spade-meets-the-outdoors theme, and we love how they were able to bring nods to nature indoors. Top it all off with a delicious looking dessert table, and we’re all set!

Ruffled - photo by Caroline Ross Photography http://ruffledblog.com/colorful-woodland-wedding-inspiration

From the event designer, Umbrella Events: This is our stylized session from Vancouver, Canada, with a theme of Kate Spade in the woods. We used a lot of different vendors for this shoot and everyone was really enthusiastic about the Kate Spade theme. We wanted stripes and hot pinks along with a woodsy theme, and used gold animals and a beautiful hanging wreath to bring the outdoors in!

Luxe Northwoods Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

I genuinely just don’t know where to begin with this styled shoot from Meg Cooper Photography, Fox & Fern Floral, and denae brennan weddings & events. The lush bouquet with pops of red peonies? The gold chandelier hanging above the reception table in the woods? The impeccable Tara Keely gown? They’re all great starting points, but just wait until you take everything in for the full picture of perfection.

From the event designer, denae brennan weddings & events: When Meg Cooper approached me with the desire to put together a winter-themed styled shoot, I immediately contacted Brianna at Fox & Fern Floral to get her on board as well. The three of us did two weddings together in 2015 and I was excited to get these talented vendors on the same project again. Brianna and I had worked at a very special private ranch property on a 2014 wedding, and the owners were gracious enough to not only let us set up our shoot there, but also take out one of their gorgeous horses for a few shots!

Plum and Gold California Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Whimsical, enchanted, fairy tale — all of these words could be used to describe Mackenzie and Travis’ magical wedding day. Their wedding was full of beautiful purple tones, lush greens, and eye-catching gold, adding up to a regal look that’s never overwhelming. Thank you to Connection Photography and Simply Irresistible Events for sharing your lovely work!

plum and gold California wedding - photo by Connection Photography http://ruffledblog.com/plum-and-gold-california-wedding

From the bride, Mackenzie: We wanted our wedding to feel like a fairy tale, without ever saying the word fairy tale, if that makes sense. We wanted it to be very immersive and to give that whimsical enchanted feeling. More than the look we focused a lot more on the FEEL we wanted it to have. We thought in terms of how it would feel for everyone there celebrating this day with us. We didn’t want it to feel like it was just all about us, we wanted every guest to personally feel that ‘happily ever after’ is a real thing and it definitely had that feeling! When it came to a color scheme, we didn’t want the color scheme to drive the look of the wedding. We wanted a touch of every color! We accomplished to include every color throughout our wedding, but kept it all unified by arranging greens, light pinks, various purples, ivory, and gold!

Old Charm New York Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

There’s a lot to love about today’s styled shoot from Julia Elizabeth Photography, Polka Dot Events, and Rose Red and Lavender, but at the top of the list is how very “New York” the whole thing feels. Architectural elements, a chic nearly monochrome color palette, and a super stylish couple bright everything together for a shoot that encapsulates the best of both old and new New York.

old charm New York wedding inspiration - photo by Julia Elizabeth Photography http://ruffledblog.com/old-charm-new-york-wedding-inspiration

From Julia Elizabeth Photography: When Tracey Goldstein of Polka Dot Events and I first started discussing the feel for our shoot, we touched upon a growing trend with her clients requesting a wedding design that is inherently New York City without being too theme-y or outdated. Once we visited 190 North, a newly opened Williamsburg, Brooklyn venue with its modern Brooklyn architecture mixed with vintage New York accents, our vision of combining old and new came to life, hence the name “Old Charm, New York.”

We gathered some of our favorite NYC vendors and gave them a little background on our “couple”: Late 20s to early 30-something modern Brooklynites, throwing an intimate winter wedding at 190 North. They love how the space’s soft color palette and wainscoting plays off the industrial garage door windows and brick accent walls, and want to highlight these features with minimalist floral and décor that is both sophisticated and understated. Their color palette is dusty blue, gray, white with accents of gold and natural greenery. Then we let all the vendors do their thing! Park Slope’s Lion in the Sun custom designed the stationery suite with a Brooklyn map overlay sitting atop a simple cardstock designed with a nod to 190 North’s geometric door patterns and mix of modern and traditional fonts. The monogram was designed by Allison Steinfeld and the black envelopes were graced with white hand calligraphy by Laurel Hansen.

Stylist Allison Koehler dressed the bride in two Limor Rosen gowns that brought our her modern day edge while still holding onto a classic bridal look. First a romantic low back dress with a long lace train for the ceremony, followed by a playful beaded silk gown for the reception. Her hair and makeup was styled natural and soft by Stacey and Gabby of Once Upon a Bride and all the jewelry and rings were supplied by Mociun in Williamsburg. Not to be outdone, the groom wore a midnight blue tuxedo from The Black Tux. Our florist Rose, Red and Lavender created an asymmetrical sculptural backdrop for the ceremony made from greenery and gold leaf accents. The same look was carried into the bride’s simple posy bouquet, and combined with white flora and succulents. Post-ceremony, we took photographs in front of the classic 1969 Checker Taxicab from FilmCars and amongst the beautifully refurbished vintage chairs by Jessica Allyn.

Our vision for the tablescape was simple yet edgy. We selected metal frame barn tables and gunmetal tolix chairs from Broadway Party Rentals, and we dressed them with a dusty blue satin runner, black and white coup china, crystal stemware and a mix of ultra-modern and ornate gold flatware. For the tablescape we used geometric gold candleholders and simple white roses in bud vases from RRL. Dish Food & Events created the gorgeous (and delicious) charcuterie spread. And what’s a wedding without a yummy dessert bar? Our adorable simple cake designed by Luckybird Bakes was the perfect compliment to the incredible dessert corner by Erin Emmett of Sweet Pistachio. We’re so proud of all the talented New York City vendors we were able to bring together to create such a sought after look. Thank you for helping us bring the vision to life!

If this styled shoot from Sarah Houston Photography and Love Blooms has a point to prove, it’s that blush pink and gold will always be a winning combination. The team used the color palette against a crisp white background, making everything pop and seem that much more elegant.

Ruffled - photo by Sarah Houston Photography http://ruffledblog.com/charlottesville-glam-wedding-editorial

From the photographer, Sarah Houston: I have always been a lover of a Blush & Gold palette (throw in some sparkles and it’s a dream come true!) so naturally when Sue reached out to me for a collaboration… well I jumped at the chance to do a Blush & Gold shoot at my favorite venue Rixey Manor. I know that the theme has been done in many ways, but I wanted to bring a classic, elegant approach to it with a white palette to really make it pop. I always love how white is a blank canvas and you can add layers to it to make it stand out.

I think the icing on the whole shoot for me was the Vera Wang blush wedding dress… I literally wanted to keep it forever. The sparkle bridesmaids gowns really bought it all together as well as the stunning florals that were a soft feminine color. I mean who doesn’t love gorgeous flowers? I honestly believe that Blush & Gold will always be a staple for wedding colors, because the possibilities are endless!

We’re reliving a little bit of Valentine’s Day charm with this styled shoot from Carolynn Seibert, Angela Marie Events, and The Plantation Florist. The team used the romantic holiday as a starting point for this lovely imagined wedding, using a color palette of red, fuchsia, blue, and gold to create a modern approach to classic decor.

Valentine events can be tricky and most time all the same. I feel like our inspiration has a beautiful vibe, adding blues and hints of plums!

Snow White Inspired Bridal Session

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Joanna Fisher

Today’s styled shoot can be summed up as “Snow White reimagined.” The team of photographer Joanna Fisher and designer Bleached Butterfly approached the famed fairy tale maiden with a modern twist, using a bold color palette of blue and red and adding in soft blush pink and pops of gold. The result? Well, it’s just about as romantic as it gets.

From the photographer, Joanna Fisher: Inspired both by Grimm’s original fairytale Snow White, and by the modern spin on the story as interpreted by ABC’s Once Upon A Time, this Snow White inspired styled bridal is the culmination of so many industry creatives’ hard work and creativity. Styled by the talented Autumn Kramer of the Bleached Butterfly, her vision for the re-telling of Snow White is truly a modern fairytale. Soft blush and gold accents are elevated by the deep reds and blues of the decor and florals, bringing this story to life.

Our bride is wearing the elegant and whimsical “Severine” gown by Monique Lhullier, provided by the Plumed Serpent Bridal. Crowned with the delicate hairpiece and jewelry by Paris, the bride truly looks like she has stepped out of the pages of a storybook. Her vows, in the form of lyrics by Mumford and Sons, are presented on the Black Velvet ribbon by Silk and Willow, hand penned by Molly Shanahan, Calligrapher.

The cake, by Baked Desserts, bears the famous lines of the song from the Disney classic, “Someday My Prince Will Come”, and the theme is carried through in the beautifully penned love letters the bride holds. Showered in the words left behind by her elusive love, the image of our ‘princess’ standing in the midst of falling antique letters is one of the photographer’s personal favorites.

Styled Boho Engagement Party

Engagement Sessions, Wedding Design

Valentine’s Day is coming up on Sunday, so naturally we’re spending today sharing some gorgeous inspiration shoots heavy on the romance! First up we have this beauty from the team of Endless Exposures Photography, Vintage Indulgence, and Edelweiss Events, who created a romantic engagement party complete with a darling tablescape and plenty of sweet treats.

From the photographer, Endless Exposures Photography: We could not be more thrilled with this Valentine’s Day engagement party styled shoot done by a group of extremely talented vendors that graciously offered their time and talents to put together a fun-day of showing off our craft. We wanted the shoot to have an amorously charming feel to it from the beautifully styled tablescape done by Lauren with Vintage Indulgence down to the little details like the calligraphy apples and stationery done by Hey Bernadette.

Brittany and Josh are getting primped and dolled up by the amazing hair and makeup team, The Fairest One, while we put the finishing touches on the dinner setup. From the unique and sweet Love cake and cookies Jenna with Sinfully Sweet Cake’s made to the cake balls and pops from Pretty Pops… the desert table is a to-live-for Valentine’s treat.

It wasn’t hard to convince my camera to fall in love with Brittany and Josh as they exchanged sweet kisses, laughter, and naturally intimate moments between each other in front of a DIY, bohemian, laced teepee and open outdoor backdrop. Dressed in a rose red gown from Couture House, Brittany’s beauty shined through every image… and Josh’s sweet and real love for her was undeniably anything but styled.

Seattle Mid-Century Modern Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

Carina Skrobecki

A mid-century modern wedding in Seattle inspired by Palm Springs? Heck yes. Rachel and David’s wedding day is everything we could hope to see and more, with some retro glam and plenty of gorgeous floral design and fun. Thanks to Carina Skrobecki, Perfectly Posh Events, and Butter & Bloom for pulling everything together so beautifully!

Seattle mid-century modern wedding - photo by Carina Skrobecki http://ruffledblog.com/seattle-mid-century-modern-wedding

From the event designer, Perfectly Posh Events: Rachel & David were inspired by Mid-Century Modern designs, Palm Springs, cocktails and Mad Men. Holly with Perfectly Posh Events spent a year with the bride Rachel, her mother, Rachel with Butter & Bloom and Beckie with Vintage Ambiance collecting and thrifting mid-century modern pieces to use in their wedding décor. For the ceremony, we constructed a “breeze-way” backdrop and hung vintage lights over the aisle to create a romantic glow. The reception centerpieces were an eclectic mix of classic table lamps and cocktail vignettes with whimsical flower touches. For dessert, guests enjoyed mini pineapple upside down cakes baked by Butter & Bloom. The bride and groom are WSU alumni, so it was only fitting that they treat their guests to WSU Grabber Ice Cream Sandwiches from as the late night snack to conclude the evening!

Finnish Mansion Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Let’s be honest, I was sold as soon as I heard the words “Finnish mansion.” Then I saw the images from Petra Veikkola Photography and I fell completely in love. Gorgeous gowns from Pukuni, lovely accessories by Aino, and Kukka Fiori tie everything together even better than we could have ever imagined!

Finnish mansion wedding inspiration - photo by Petra Veikkola Photography http://ruffledblog.com/finnish-mansion-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Petra Veikkola Photography: The styled shoot took place in an unique Finnish environment in Hostel Tuorla, Tuorla mansion area and park. The mansion dates back from the middle ages and has probably been a part of bishop’s cattle ranch. The area were the shooting took place consist of old buildings, a large park, a small pond and an old mill. The Finnish nature and the beautiful location was the main inspiration for the shoot.

The colour palette was kept soft and minimal to reflect minimalist aesthetics that are often connected to Finland and Finnish design. All bridal dresses were made just for this shoot. The shoot was initiated by Saara from Pukuni (the maker of bridal dresses) and Satu from Aino (the maker of hair adornments). They wanted to gather together their dream team to showcase the truly talented and passionate professionals that can be found in Finland. The shoot went really smoothly and everyone was also having a good time.

Dreamy Rose Gold Wedding

Elegant Weddings

Lovers of rose gold, blush pink, and gold, look no further than this elegant wedding from Heidi Ryder Photography and Day Of Gal. Taryn and Nick are two high school sweethearts turned newlyweds who celebrated their vows to each other on the bride’s own birthday. Full of love and sweet touches, this is one you won’t want to miss!

dreamy rose gold wedding - photo by Heidi Ryder Photography http://ruffledblog.com/dreamy-rose-gold-wedding

From the bride, Taryn: Nick and I were together 8 years when we got engaged. We met when I was 16 and he was 18. High school sweethearts some might say. We always knew we would end up together and always planned on it. Most of our years were spent in different states, though, as we attended different colleges and began our careers. My mom, an event planner, and I had been discussing my wedding plans for years. Filing away photos of flowers, dresses, linens, embroidery designs and color schemes we liked. The minute the ring was on, it was game time. I always dreamed of a fall wedding outside, strategically timed before day light savings. Checking the calendar for dates, our family’s rabbi had limited availability in the fall. The only date which worked for all of us would be on my 25th birthday and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. Nick crashed my 16th birthday in high school and that’s really when I knew he liked me, so this seemed like a special touch coming full circle. I guess he will be crashing my birthday for the rest of our lives! He was really hoping the wedding was on my birthday. Now he only needs to remember one date!

I wanted a romantic, warm and inviting look without being over the top. And, that’s what I got. I had my own “Franck” a la Father of the Bride, and he tied everything together and had several surprises for me. The wedding was at Westlake Village Inn, which looks like a vineyard estate and has a freestanding tent. A rustic, yet elegant look. The hotel became a destination wedding for us Westsiders who don’t venture far. It had all the best elements without feeling like a stuffy hotel ballroom. It was perfect.

Flowers and all the small details were so important to me. The color scheme was blush, ivory, green and a pop of one dark color. The arrangements were a mix of high and low vases, all different antique silver mixed with votive candles and petals. Three long tables framed the dance floor. A mix of rectangle and round tables were used to fill the room to make the space feel warm and less formal. We used rose gold flatware to balance the blush linens. Lighting throughout the tent was amber and pink to compliment the reception tent. Vineyard chairs were the last touch to make the room perfect.

Detail to attention was a must. We had custom drinks, letter-pressed napkins, and drink stirrers. We monogrammed bathrobes for the bridal party, handkerchiefs with our initials hung on vintage racks during the ceremony for ‘your tears of joy’, each parent and grandparent received personalized hankies and we even monogrammed welcome bags with our wedding hashtag #sarnoffisthenewblack. Our delicious, simple and beautiful wedding cake was topped with a wedding cake topper Nick and I picked from my mom’s vintage collection. The cutting of the cake was almost a private moment as everyone was so busy dancing, eating homemade gourmet cotton candy or snacking at the late night French fry bar. The evening was so very special. Since Nick and I had been together so long, all of our closest family and friends have watched us grow up together. We were able to be with all the people who we loved most, our nearest and dearest. I felt like I was floating through the day for the most perfect celebration of our love and the start of our life as husband and wife.

Tranquil Bohemian Beach Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Alexandra Wallace

A gorgeous bohemian event on the beach, complete with a hanging tassel backdrop, stylish bar, and incredible floral design? Say no more. This shoot from the wonderful team of Alexandra Wallace, Lovelyfest Events, and Precious and Blooming utilizes paper goods from Wedding Paper Divas to create a simple and relaxed day that’s just as exciting as it is tranquil and peaceful.

From the event designers, Lovelyfest Events: Growing up in Southern California has been influential in shaping our overall style and aesthetic as designers, and never having lived more than 10 minutes from the beach, the ocean is a major source of that inspiration. For this shoot, we wanted to reflect the casual and simple nature of true ‘California style’, with a non-traditional beach wedding. Living in a town with countless seaside wedding venues, we sought out to design a wedding that could encompass a beach feel without cookie-cutter “beach” items ( i.e. seashells and sand). This shoot took place on one of our favorite cliffs by the sea in Shell Beach with one of our favorite wedding photographers, Alexandra Wallace. She really encapsulates a modern and unique vibe in her photos, and we knew she could showcase this one perfectly. With this setting came various scenes of natural beauty; a gaping view of the ocean and a naturally marbled cliff wall on the sand. The cliff rivaled any backdrop we could create ourselves! The ocean and sky provided a simple backdrop for our table, with it’s blue hues juxtaposing the focal colors of our shoot: rose quartz, mustard yellow, crisp white, and pale gray.

As with all of our weddings, our design of this shoot began with the overall look, theme and vibe, followed closely by the choosing of an invitation suite. Paper products may seem like a trivial detail, but for us, these little details can help keep the design focused and cohesive. After scouting our venue and finding unique aspects of it that inspired us, we chose the Gilded Marble Invitation suite from Wedding Paper Divas. The deep Dijon hue of this invitation reflected the color and marbling of the cliff walls where our shoot was to take place, and the white geometric details and bold lettering spoke to that simple and modern California style we were seeking out. We set up an exposed wood dining table from Embellish Vintage rentals high on the cliff where only the ocean could be seen behind it. This in turn helped keep the focus on the table itself, with the backdrop of the sea being a complement to our design. On each place setting sat a menu from the same Gilded Marble invitation suite. Because of it’s detailed design, we kept the table decor very simple. We accessorized with modern gold flatware, stark white plates, gray stoneware and modern brass napkin rings. Our vintage champagne coupes sat on geometric rose quartz coasters, giving the table a more modern feel. The cool gray napkins lent a sophisticated yet understated feeling to each place setting, and driftwood knife rests brought the beach setting into play.

We worked closely with florist Kellye from Precious and Blooming to come up with a floral design that didn’t feel too contrived, something very California chic. She designed a stunning centerpiece that was looked as though it was laying on the table, to create a more at-home, foraged feel. We accented the table with real pink Himalayan salt blocks, pink hued taper candles and vintage salt cellars filled with pink salt. Finally, we added in modern white chairs around the rustic table to really bring together that laid-back, modern California feel. Since the cliff wall was a major source of inspiration for our design and our choosing of paper products, we knew it had to be the focal point of the ceremony. The natural marbling on the wall is a stunning feat of nature and we couldn’t keep our eyes off it! We hand-crafted tassels and created a ceremony backdrop against the wall complete with foraged wood and florals from Kellye. The modern white chairs served as the perfect modern accent and were a stark contrast to the soft hues of the beach.

We left our cake designer, Papercake Events, creative freedom to come up with a cake design inspired by the sea and our Wedding Paper Divas invitations. On the bottom tier of the cake, Whitnie mimicked the marbling of the Gilded Marble invite, and on the top used geometric accents keeping with the modern theme. Instead of placing flowers on the cake, we had Precious and Blooming come in with leftover florals, creating a loose and unique look at the bottom of the cake table. We’re always looking for new ways to show off floral arrangements, and it doesn’t always have to be in a vase! Embellish Vintage rentals is always expanding their inventory, and although most of it is classic and antique, we easily weaved it into our modern, eclectic design. With their vintage bar cart we added in custom cocktails, more geodes and pink salt blocks, and extra cards from the invitation suite. You never know when you’ll need extra paper goods, and escort displays are always a great way to tie in those fun details! Overall, the marbled invitation suite tied in perfectly with the ocean and cliffs of Shell Beach. We worked with all local vendors to make this styled shoot come to life, as we really wanted to encapsulate what a local beach wedding could be. We hope we can inspire brides to think outside the box when designing their own wedding, and that what is typically done in your venue doesn’t have to be the same for you!

From Wedding Paper Divas: Sometimes the soul yearns for something simple. No heels or fancy frills. Our idea for a relaxed wedding happened as we were driving along the coast. A venue really sets the tone for a wedding, and we knew we wanted to dream up some tranquil inspiration, on one of our favorite shorelines. A beach wedding isn’t for everyone. But if you think it may work for you and your beau, get ready to sink your toes into the sand. There is something so idyllic about a Bohemian wedding theme. It beckons the flower child within you. From the muted flowers, rosy Himalayan rocks, worn wooden table, and old fashioned bar cart, these vintage pieces showcase the heart of what some whimsical free spirits may choose to have on their special day. We made sure to add warmth to the décor, as California winters don’t always have an abundance of color. The stylist and I used shades of pink, gold, and blue for this styled shoot. From the cocktail drinks, to the reception seating area, we made sure to take this theme full circle. From softly rolling waves, to endlessly romantic sunsets, is there a more perfect way to exchange I Dos?

Romantic Winter Wedding at The Cooper Estate

Romantic Weddings

This romantic wedding captured by Miranda Hattie Photography was heavily influenced by the bride and groom’s Cuban backgrounds. An intimate setting was essential to Yanin and Alex’s big day. The gorgeous florals by Ever After Floral Design were the perfect touch with pops of marsala scattered throughout the day. Surrounded by Palm Trees and loved ones, these photos make you want to hop on a plane Florida-bound!

From the bride, Yanin: I had always envisioned our wedding to be in a place very intimate where everyone can feel the love that Alex and I feel for each other. Alex’s oldest brother is a minister and we both knew we wanted him to marry us. I think that was very special and made the wedding even more intimate and personal. I wanted a wedding that was elegant, organic and vintage. I knew I wanted a fall wedding because we met during the same time we had the wedding 4 years ago and because it is our favorite season. I knew I wanted something outdoors. I also love antiques. My mom and stepdad collect antiques and have started a small antique company. I share the same love for beautiful antique pieces and I knew I wanted that at our wedding. I also wanted to show Alex’s personality in our wedding and our Cuban heritage so I knew I wanted a Cuban cigar roller. Lastly, I knew I wanted one heck of a party and I wanted the dance floor to never be empty. I love to have fun and dance and I wanted people to feel that energy all night long. I think our wedding really encompassed both of our personalities.

My mom and stepdad are huge antique collectors and I knew I wanted to use some of their items for our wedding. It was also a great way to showcase the items they have for rent in their company. I used a French door as the seating chart. I did the writing for the seating chart, which took me longer than I expected. I am a perfectionist and kept erasing and then doing it all over again. The mirror is also an antique that my mom has and I used it as the menu, which I also wrote on. Our florist added beautiful berries to our seating chart and menu. It was a really nice touch. My jewelry for the day of the wedding my mom and I bought from an antique store in Miami. The earrings and the bracelet are one of a kind pieces.

I also wanted to show our Cuban background as both of our parents are from Cuba, so we had a cigar roller, a coffee bar and a percussionist. The cigar roller and coffee bar were a surprise for Alex from his parents. He loves smoking cigars and I thought this would be a great treat for him. He also loves espressos hence the coffee bar, which the servers did pass around Cuban coffee to guests. I loved our DJ from the moment we met him but I knew I wanted a little more when the music was playing. When looking for someone to play drums our DJ let us know he had a percussionist to play the drums, which brought the music and party to another level. I have a lot of favorite moments. Getting ready for the wedding with my mother and my bridesmaids was amazing. Walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing Alex standing there waiting for me next to my favorite girls and his groomsmen. I loved the fact that my brother, who is autistic, was able to be there too. He never goes to weddings but I knew my wedding would be incomplete without him. Seeing him there made my heart full. I loved our first dance and dancing with my father. I loved seeing my mom dancing to “Dancing Queen”. I loved seeing Alex so happy and full of life. I loved seeing everyone I love there and having a good time. Our wedding day was basically my favorite moment.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? One piece of advice to give all brides is enjoy it to the fullest! Do not stress about a magical day. I enjoyed it from getting ready with my mom and bridesmaids to the end of the wedding. Dance even if you sweat so much you look like a mess. I enjoyed it and danced so much, I ripped my dress. That’s how all weddings should end!

Romantic Blue and Gold Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

The mix of colors in today’s styled shoot from Lindsay Hackney Photography and Apotheca Flower and Tea Shoppe is so fantastic, we think it pretty much has us hypnotized. Rich blues, crisp golds, soft lavender, and minty green — how can it get better than that? Of course, the bride’s Vera Wang gown is also stealing the show with endless layers of tulle that help make this shoot one of the most romantic we’ve seen in a while.

Romantic Blue and Gold Wedding Inspiration- photo by Lindsay Hackney Photography http://ruffledblog.com/autumn-styled-shoot-at-aldworth-manor

From the photographer, Lindsay Hackney Photography: Autumn in New Hampshire is known for its vivid reds, but for this shoot we were inspired to explorer a cooler fall palette. Moody Prussian blue, minty green and lavender made for exciting and unique foundational colors with bits of gold, peach, and orange keeping things classic.

We were also totally inspired by our venue, the incredible Aldworth Manor. There is no place quite like it in all of New Hampshire, or even New England! The Tuscan-style estate had fallen into disrepair and is being lovingly restored to host weddings and events. The elegance of the Manor’s original features combined with the shabby-chic feel of its current state made for an exquisite backdrop. A gorgeous Vera Wang gown from Borrowing Magnolia and divine floral design from Apotheca Flower Shoppe finished pulled everything together to perfection!

Ethereal Chapel Wedding

Elegant Weddings

Bride Lindsey knew she wanted her wedding day to be both ethereal and classic, and her chosen color palette of green and white helped her achieve this goal. Jen House Design rocked the floral design, while The Compass Points Here captured everything to total perfection for a lifetime of memories!

From the bride, Lindsey: Pretty, ethereal, and classic. That is how I described my vision for our wedding to our florist and I think that is exactly how it turned out. Plus it was a day full of love and laughter which represents our relationship so very well.

We knew we wanted to get married in a church and were thrilled to find a place where the church, venue and accommodations are in one place.When we picked our venue, I knew we needed a subtle color palette and after a little debate I choose gold and white with a bit of green and blush mixed in. I’m so happy that I took a chance on white bridesmaids dresses because the girls looked like angels walking down the aisle. The boys looked incredibly dapper and classic in a tux sans vest with suspenders. My dress was chosen on the second try and I loved that Hayley Paige is a young female designer who truly understands what so many brides want to be on their big day.

We definitely were attracted to young wedding vendors and can’t say enough positive things about them. By the end of the day it felt like we had new friends celebrating with us. It was a dance party like none other. I am a believer in tiny details that have lots of meaning. For that reason I incorporated little things that meant a lot to my husband and I. I carried a broach on my bouquet that my grandpa gave to my grandma. I wore borrowed diamond studs from my other grandmother. We drank out of borrowed crystal champagne flutes. I gave my dad geese cuff-links as he has lovingly nicknamed me Goose since I was a little girl. We included wedding day photos from our family as a part of the decor. I had our florist write the bridesmaid’s names on the ribbons that tied their bouquets and the lyrics to our wedding song on mine. It all meant something on such a meaningful day.

Celestial Inspired Wedding Shoot

Wedding Design

“I love you to the moon and back,” “I love you more than there are stars in the sky” — there’s something about the expansiveness of the skies and the unlimited nature of love that makes these expressions work so well. With that in mind, the talented team of Bri Costello Photography, Jitters & Cocktails, The Arrangement Co., and Vintage Indulgence set to work on this stylish shoot inspired by all things celestial, incorporating beautiful shades of blue and gold for a look that makes us dream of starry nights.

celestial inspired wedding shoot - photo by Bri Costello Photography http://ruffledblog.com/celestial-inspired-wedding-shoot

From the photographer, Bri Costello: I live in Houston, the largest city in Texas, and 3rd largest in the continental US (expected to surpass Chicago by 2020); although, Houston kind of gets a bad rep sometimes. I mean, for the first 4 years I lived here as an adult, I had pledged to move to Austin first chance I got. To be fair, we are quite spread out, neighboring suburbs often spanning up to 45 miles in distance. And there isn’t a major distinguishing factor of Houston. We aren’t weird like Austin, posh like Dallas, nor historical like San Antonio or artisanal like Marfa. And although it took me a hot second to discover, our city is actually kind of funky and awesome.

Houston is the southern epicenter for great museums, opera, ballet, fine art, theatre arts, we have a deep heritage in blues music, great international cuisine, and… we have NASA. Houston, we do not have a problem. For a city whose sport’s team names are: Astros, Rockets, Comets, and Aeros (NHL, folks. We have hockey in Houston), space exploration has become a large aspect of Houston’s identity. Being a lover of the night sky and space and space travel myself, I was a bit inspired by our city’s connection and curiosity for what exists beyond. As I have grown to truly love this city and now proudly claim Houston as my home, I began to develop the idea of creating a project that would highlight this niche of Houston’s makeup in such a way that would be creative, relevant, and authentic, without being too thematically hokie. I felt compelled to give a nod to Houston’s heart for the sun, moon, and stars. So from there, I then teamed up with an amazing crew, largely based here in Houston, and began the Pinterest boards, conversations, style boards, colors schemes, and all the coordination that go in to a styled shoot.

Jace, with Jitters & Cocktails was incredible at taking my ideas and then sourcing them and bringing them to life. On the day of the shoot, Aubrey with The Arrangement Co. showed up with buckets of the most gorgeous flowers I have seen in a long time. She jumped right in and found such creative ways to incorporate florals in to the decor. Lauren with Vintage Indulgence is a worker and a doer. She has an incredible inventory, and pulled up, truck packed to the brim, and took-off creating some of these beautiful spaces to shoot. As a team, we had a strong vision for a shoot that I can only describe as a mash-up of Galileo’s workspace, except his wife decided to clean-up a bit and throw a fancy dinner party. With that in mind, we tried to avoid too much vintage, anything too modern or too thematic, and/or designs that read more of a garden party. Mixing metals and materials and textures was key in creating a cohesive look that didn’t feel too forced. The backdrop for the ceremony is a late-night creation I thought of in my head. We went back and forth between 100 different ideas for something for the altar, but when I came down to it, we wanted the altar to be centralizing piece that brought the rest of the shoot together. So I found a spare sheet of plywood in my father’s garage and went to town with scrap paints from a local paint store’s “mess-up.” We all love what we created and had a blast working together. Our models were so on-point, and all of the details really just came together so beautifully, and we had fun playing and creating. And isn’t that what this is all about anyhow?

Modern Black and White Wedding with Emerald

Modern Weddings

Any couple who describes their wedding theme as “Kate Spade met The Wicked Witch of the West” has already garnered my attention and adoration, and this wedding did not disappoint. Sarah Libby Photography, Everything Beautiful OKC, and Leigh and Louise Design came together to work on Avery and Michael’s modern wedding with a clean color palette of black, white, gold, and green, with a bit of burgundy in the floral arrangements for good measure.

From the bride, Avery: I would describe our wedding style as Kate Spade meets Boho chic. If Kate Spade fell into a forest, that’s the feel we were going for. Somehow our end phrase became Kate Spade met The Wicked Witch of the West.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Don’t follow protocol. Just because that’s the way it’s always been done doesn’t mean that’s how it has to be. Make it your own and then own it. Secondly, take a moment to take it all in, it. Thirdly, don’t pay $1,000 for your veil. A full cathedral veil with a blusher cost us $18.00.

From the photographer, Sarah Libby Photography:
Michael and Avery were married this fall with a modern, fresh, and fun vibe. Avery stunned in her long sleeve plunging neck gown by Madison James from Beloved Bridal and Michael could not stop looking at her. Michael surprised her with her grandmother’s ring to wear as her wedding band and the tears flowed. The bridesmaids wore bold emerald Badgley MIschka gowns and the groomsmen wore a classic tux. They were married at sunset overlooking the Oklahoma farmlands. They chose bold tablecloths to fancy up their reception space and chose a non-traditional cake table filled with fancy donuts and cookies. They also had specialty pizza’s prepared for all of their guests from their favorite pizza place. They had a confetti entrance to their reception and partied with family and friends before their sparkler sendoff!

Christmas Tree Farm Inspiration Shoot

Wedding Design

We’re about to head out to kick off our holiday festivities, but first we wanted to leave you with this beautiful Christmas tree farm inspiration shoot. The talented team of Janeane Marie Photography, Kate Rose Creative, and Sixpence Floral Design created this Christmas shoot full of personality and coziness with winter couples in mind, pulling together all of the best elements the chilly season has to offer.

From Katelyn of Kate Rose Creative: We knew we wanted to kick this holiday season off with a gorgeous Christmas Tree Farm inspiration shoot. Sixpence Floral Design out did themselves with their gorgeous floral designs. The floral pieces were the focal point of the shoot as they brought in texture, character and color. Lots and lots of color! The use of magnolia leaves really accented the deep reds and burgundies of the floral and the white floral pieces added in contrast. The floral was simply stunning. The bride was adorned with a gorgeous floral crown that tied everything in together. It wouldn’t be a Christmas shoot without a wreath. An oversized, lush, gorgeous hand tied wreath. We topped it off with a ribbon sign by Studio W Designs. The vintage furniture was provided by Dessert Divas. The white couch nestled in the backdrop of miles and miles of Christmas trees served as comfy and cozy space for the couple. The white table and gold cart added character and served as a great focal points for the set up.

The sweets were provided by Simply Delicious. The naked cake was adorned with 23 carat gold edible leafing. We love the way the cake looked with the contrast of the green Christmas tree backdrop. Adorned with white floral and sugared cranberries, the cake was a show stopper. It’s tasty too! The cookies added so much fun personality and character to our look! They were detailed and gorgeous! The stationery was hand painted by the Kate Rose Creative Group team. The use of watercolor topped off the look of the stationary pieces. We are suckers for hand painted stationary pieces. The table decor was full of lush floral, pine cone accents, plaid (we are loving plaid this season), gorgeous calligraphy pieces provided by Love Me Sweet. They also provided a hand scripted sign on a stump that tied in well with the overall look of the shoot.

The bride wore a full ruffled shirt dress with a cozy cardigan. Divaz Fabula did her hair and make up for a soft, romantic look. She looked simply beautiful. The groom was in casual attire. We are gushing over the plaid, bow tie and suspenders. His look was pulled together with a corsage composed of magnolia leaves and berries. Masculine and pretty.
