Romantic Hindu and Humanist Wedding Weekend

Garden Weddings

Photos by:

Dominique Bader

When we see the words “wedding weekend” pop up, we’re automatically enamored by what’s to come in the photos. Dominique Bader was in charge of documenting Sundari and Andy’s festivities and it was kicked off by the warm and vibrant Hindu, Sri-Lankan Tamil wedding. Following their first celebration, their Humanist wedding was dressed in lovely shades of white and grey with delightful additions of green thanks to the creations by Floribunda Rose. With a gala like this, Always Andri Wedding Design was on hand to offer not only smooth planning but fantastic design as well.

Garden Party Wedding at Demetria Estate

Garden Weddings

Photos by:

onelove photography

Another onelove photography beauty and it takes place all in the majesty of the great outdoors at California’s Demetria Estate. Genevieve and Clark’s wedding is just so elegant and what I love the most about it is that despite hosting their big day outdoors, they pull in lovely, soft pops of color that simply work well with the vineyard surroundings. From the gray in Clark’s dapper suit to the sweet pink hue of Genevieve’s bridesmaids’ dresses and the dahlias in the centerpieces by Connor Casavan, it was all compiled so effortlessly by Emily Bowser. Enjoy this classic garden fête!

Lush Natural Beauty Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Oh how we love when people embrace the rain! It’s such a peaceful, relaxing kind of beauty + there’s nothing like quiet, shiny puddles to complement an abundance of flowers and soft candlelight. This Texan editorial from Events by Jade and Lizzie Bee’s Flower Shoppe unified a soft neutral palette to create a light, ethereal ambiance that has us sighing with delight. We especially love the subtle marbling tied together in the invitation envelope AND the gold leaf topped cake. Ultimately, Rachel Elaine Photography gifted us with images that evoke and inspire.

Moody Dramatic Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Now that fall is finally here, we are fully embracing this berry-toned affair cultivated by creative minds like Lindsey Zamora and Poppy Lane Design. This dream within a dream, shot by Britni Dean Photography is candid proof of the power of film. Straying flowers and trailing ribbons rest gracefully upon a layered gown that pops vividly against a hypnotizing monochromatic backdrop, while poetic hand lettering in gold glitters atop a textured papyrus in deep teal. As we gaze upon the lavish tablescape, we can’t help but notice the divine fruits clumped artistically amongst the gold-rimmed stemware and pleated blue china. Talk about aesthetic!

Moody Dramatic Wedding Inspiration - http://ruffledblog.com/moody-dramatic-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Britni Dean Photography: Amanda Watson’s Workshop was my very first workshop experience and it truly marked a turn in my heart and in my business. I have never shot with such intention or motivation! I am so excited to share this all film moody wedding inspiration at Aristide in Mansfield, Texas.

Fall Wedding Inspiration with Jewel Tones

Wedding Design

Just in time for delightful fall weather, Ashlee Mintz Photography graces us with this equally-delightful bridal inspiration. Designed by Arielle Fera Events, the shoot is set in a lovely moody color palette with the prettiest shades of seasonal colors outside of the norm of oranges and browns, like cool plums, charcoal grey, and navy blue. Lightening up the wedding editorial are the exceptional dresses in neutral shades to die for. Let’s not forget about the insanely-good arrangements by Allium Floral Design; from the wedding centerpieces to the bouquets, the floral designs were one of the many cherries on top of this wedding shoot!

From the photographer, Ashlee Mintz Photography: Collaborating with Arielle Fera Events to bring this dark moody vision to life led to the most beautiful, gothic, and romantic wedding inspiration. This shoot has a lot of different elements/details, from the lush floral tablescape to the cabbage that lies under a marble name card. The palette included rich, deep tones of purples, blacks, charcoals, and blues. These jewel tones evoked the most magical setting for a stunning bride and her bridesmaids.

Modern Romance Inspiration with Pops of Jewel Tones

Wedding Design

This wedding inspiration editorial has everything: a stunning backdrop that could double as fine art, an impromptu boudoir session, and a lovely modern grey tablescape with flashes of deep plum. It’s all so brilliant and we’re so thrilled Jillian Rose Photography snapped it all. Ede by Jacqueline was smitten by the location of the shoot and knew the exact direction to go to complement the outdoor space, highlighting the delightful architectural features. Autumn Vine Design thought to pair the various shades of blue with shades of purple, and it was such a swell move since the floral arrangements stick out so beautifully amidst all of the design elements.

From the event planner, Ede by Jacqueline: The venue itself was so incredibly charming and unique. I loved Ebell’s high ceilings and unique chandeliers that were offering that outdoor feel. I thought having stronger jewel toned colors would pop in this space. Also, with Ebell’s stunning bridal suite, I knew I had to incorporate a soft and romantic boudoir session.

A boudoir session doesn’t always have to be a separate day of shooting. Don’t hesitate to ask your photographer about getting some choice snapshots of you before the heyday of hair and makeup come around. Pick a great spot with nature lighting and wear your favorite lingerie and most importantly, relax and let the camera snap those natural smiles!

During the planning process, I came across a stunning art piece made by Christine Olmstead and I knew I had to incorporate it in the shoot somehow. It was definitely not easy shipping it across the country, however I knew this would make this shoot come alive. I’ve become a fan of using stunning art pieces as backdrops for weddings, it can be so versatile and unique!

Industrial Meets Earthy Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

It’s so much fun to blend styles and design concepts for wedding editorials, and here we have another beauty to share from the lens of Gray Door Photography. It’s got equal parts modern and industrial mixed with the right amount of organic elements, and these ideas work so effortlessly together. We’re squealing over how Rustic Roots Design created the ideal arrangements for this styled shoot and put the emphasis on the foliage, allowing those dreamy, lavender and blush colored roses to peek through and add some romance. This indoors-meets-outdoors inspiration is so mesmerizing!

modern wedding ideas - photo by Gray Door Photography http://ruffledblog.com/industrial-meets-earthy-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Gray Door Photography: Providence, Rhode Island is known for the historic preservation of its mill buildings. With a team of local entrepreneur vendors working to bring our vision to life, this white-washed mill felt like the perfect place to bring earthy and industrial together. Our inspiration grew from our team’s fondness of intimate, thoughtful weddings, playful yet romantic details, and a serious love of texture. This shoot is for the bohemian bride who values those same things – down to the very last detail.

The watercolor invitation suite was hand torn, painted, and lettered. The headpieces, sash, and garter were all handmade to complement our gorgeous silk chiffon, organic cotton gown, which was also made here in America. Each piece of furniture is vintage or antique restored to preserve its beauty and character. Even the donuts in our pretty little donut tower were hand crafted by a local donut shop! The floral elements (composed of a variety of thistles, blackberry branches, bay leaf branches, queen anne’s lace, ranunculus, smoke bush, olive branches, succulents, and a few other blooms) were perfectly overgrown, bringing the outdoors in. We believe your wedding should reflect you and your love. This wedding inspiration shoot is for those brides and grooms whose love is true, sweet, romantic, playful, a little bit wild, and a little bit free.

Luxury English Estate Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

We’re taking you all on a journey today to the lovely English countryside where Philippa Sian Photography has brought to life the most luxurious purple-and-grey hued wedding shoot. The location has those sprawling and picturesque landscapes you’d find on an English estate as beautiful as this one, and Violets and Velvet knew that complementing the whole mood of the shoot with equally-gorgeous, garden-style floral centerpieces was key. Our excitement over this shoot cannot be contained!

purple and grey weddings - photo by Philippa Sian Photography http://ruffledblog.com/luxury-english-estate-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer and event designer, Philippa Sian PhotographyMixing the classic with the new – that’s what this luxury inspirational shoot embodies. With Wrest Park, an English Heritage grade I-listed country estate as the stunning backdrop to this romantic shoot, we were able to complement the grandeur with a feminine and modern look.

When designing the look and concept of the shoot, I knew that I wanted grey to play a big part. Grey is such a versatile and stylish colour and I’ve started to see grey table linens appear more and more. I wanted to build on this and add a mix of feminine colours to deliver this grey colour trend in a really new way.

Before I had decided on the full colour palette, the lovely Maria-Antonia from Duchess & Butler and I were discussing her luxury hire collection and she showed me her beautiful Valentina charger plates; a lux pink with gold embellishment. She has such a good eye for colour and showed how mixing colours with your tablewear can work really well. In this case she suggested her Audrey purple glasswear to sit alongside the pink and gold charger plates and there it was! All of a sudden we had our colour palette! Grey and gold with highlights of pink and purple; a stylish, on trend look mixed and delivered in a really fresh way.

We wanted to create a real wedding look for this shoot, and so Duchess & Butler set the table for 22 place settings. We used gorgeous grey linen and candles, beautiful pink and gold charger plates, purple and pink glasswear with flashes of gold in the cutlery and candelabras. The chairs were covered in delicate gold lace chair covers which added to our embellished and romantic styling, all provided by Duchess & Butler. Beautiful menus and place settings in a soft grey and gold foil from The Whistle Press added the finishing touches.

Wild and blousy floral displays in urns adorned the table, with a delicate green garland running the length of the table. The fireplace was draped in a mesmerising floral display which created the most stunning backdrop for our table setting and our couple.

The bridal bouquet was given the same swoon worthy treatment, with trailing, romantic passion flowers mixed with delicate buds and blousy florals. Beautiful ribbon from Lancaster & Cornish in deep greys and gold foiled dusky tones completed the bouquet’s luxury and romantic look.

Floral favour cases with delicate truffles inside by Villa Dolce which were dotted on each place setting. These tasty truffles also made up our luxury sweet table accompanied by the beautiful cake from Wild Flower Cakes, with gorgeous hand written calligraphy labels from Oh Wonder Calligraphy tied together with dreamy gold foiled silk ribbon from Lancaster & Cornish.

The Whistle Press provided beautiful hand crafted stationery for the shoot, using beautiful grey and white papers with gold foil text. Oh Wonder Calligraphy added some romance with handwritten calligraphy envelopes, love letters and romantic quotes on a vintage mirror.

Our lovely bride and model, Rebecca, wore two stunning dresses from London bridal boutique, Heart Aflutter Bridal Boutique who specialise in unique, stylish and exciting bridal wear. Both dresses encompassed the dreamy and embellished feel of the shoot, with the first gold embroidered dress, ‘Heart of Gold’ by designer Claire La Faye and the second, a floaty soft grey editorial dress, ‘Alexandra’ by designer Truvelle. Both looks were accessorised with ‘Amy Leaf’ hair accessories from Tilly Thomas Lux and beautiful ivory shoes from Love Art Wear Art. Rebecca’s look was perfected with natural makeup and a loose romantic updo by Patricia Soper.

Our groom, Luke, wore a classy and dapper 3 piece Mohair Berwick suit from Gresham Blake. We also teamed up with Mrs Bow Tie to complete his look. He wore their classic silver skinny tie mixed with a dusky rose Turner pocket square to add a pop of colour and a subtle nod to the colour palette.

Oldfield Plantation Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

A soft and luminous wedding editorial at a plantation in the deep south? We signed up for those pictures from Jose & Teresa Photography and they definitely did not disappoint! For a few days, photographer Jeremy Chou held a workshop in Okatie, South Carolina and this southern countryside was the setting while Design Studio South was in charge of all of the details and elements. Under the swaying Spanish moss and centuries-old oaks, they chose a pastel color palette of blues and greys. In came dashes of blush from Colonial House of Flower‘s elegant floral arrangements created with roses and ranunculi, to name a few choice blooms. We can only imagine how dreamy it was to shoot this editorial!

weddings in South Carolina - photo by Jose & Teresa Photography http://ruffledblog.com/oldfield-plantation-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Jose & Teresa Photography: This styled shoot took place in the low-country of Oldfield Plantation in Okatie, South Carolina. It has an ethereal feel with the soft Spanish moss hanging from trees as a background and a beautifully in love couple, who are actually engaged and to be married later this year. The bride has a tattoo of a cross on her right hand’s ring finger, as she is a woman of faith, which really captured my attention as I am also a believer. This concept came to be by Jeremy Chou’s Workshop given on February 29 – March 1.

Long taper candles always add a great deal of romance to any wedding tablescape. They come in a wide variety of colors so you can mix and match them and ensure they suit your color palettes. Set them in glass candle holders like these for a more elongated effect, or add even more elegance and use dreamy metal candelabras. Swoon!

French Couture Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

What a sweetly-crafted wedding editorial by Ryan & Alyssa Photography this is! It’s got a brilliant story behind it, a romantic design by Bespoken that is so very French, and the perfect floral decorations to match the entire concept by Kate Asire Flowers: a vision of pink, roses, and lushness all over. Be right back; going to dig up a chic beret and start daydreaming of France.

French wedding inspiration - photo by Ryan & Alyssa Photography http://ruffledblog.com/french-couture-wedding-inspiration

From the photographers, Ryan & Alyssa Photography: When Nicole and Alex envisioned their wedding day, they had no idea how much their past would direct their future. You see, they first met while studying abroad in Paris for a summer. While they were both cultivating their love for French culture, the language, and the people, they found themselves also falling in love with each other. And when they returned to the City of Light 3 years later, Alex proposed to Nicole with his grandmother’s canary diamond! For their wedding, they couldn’t imagine not embracing the culture and style of the city that first drew them together.

They chose to get married at the Venue at Postcard from Paris, in Nicole’s hometown, a place that embodied the soft, romantic pallet and French couture design these two so enjoyed. Alex & Nicole desired a small, intimate ceremony and celebration, and the attention they paid to details carried through from the ceremony design to the Louboutin shoes Nicole wore. Alex & Nicole wrote their vows in French, and had those vows hand-lettered to a custom parchment backdrop for their ceremony. For their reception, Alex & Nicole chose a family styled design complete with personalized escort cards, dinner lighting, and a gorgeous floral garland in muted, romantic tones. And they celebrated with a glass of rosé and a gorgeous blush lace design cake with sugar florals. Blush macarons with edible pearls were a guest favorite, a nod to one of their favorite French treats. Enjoy this intimate indoor wedding inspiration!

French Garden Inspired Wedding Editorial

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Ben Q Photography

Anything beautiful is bound to always catch our eye and that happens quite often over here. Anything French-inspired and beautiful is, without a doubt, going to be something we fall for and as a clear example, this Ben Q Photography wedding editorial is it. It’s inundated with soft, gauzy colors reminiscent of the French countryside, a divine dress, and a personal favorite, those sweet loaves of French bread that are so simple yet so perfect. Kudos to The Southern Table and Events by Kristin for this spectacle. Take us to France already!

From the event and floral designer, The Southern TableInspired by the rolling lavender fields of Provence, we chose a soft, serene palette of pale purples, greys, with pops of peach. The Southern Table combined garden roses, sweet pea, trailing clematis with heuchera leaves, lavender, and bearded irises in organic cement pots for an earthy, yet elegant feel. They paired these loose, organic arrangements with gold trimmed scalloped dinnerware and sleek gold flatware to create this elevated garden look.

Have you spotted the “bread” trend in weddings? We love the idea of couples taking handheld loaves of bread like these French bread loaves or croissants and adding them at each guest’s place setting. It’s a cozy gesture and it’s a fun alternative to just handing them a roll of bread during dinner.

Waterfall Elopement Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

If you’re in need of a gorgeous setting for a wedding or a shoot, there’s really nothing like stepping outside of the box (literally) and heading outdoors. Chelsea Q. White Photography and Ivory & Lace Events headed to their nearest dreamy waterfall, took one look at it, and the ideas for this shoot began to form. To contrast the rugged look of their surroundings, they went for softness everywhere: in the styling and in the muted colors with little pops of brightness thanks to the florals by Moss Floral Design.

From the photographer, Chelsea Q. White Photography: Both Kristen (of Ivory & Lace Events) and I wanted to create a romantic, intimate editorial centered around this gorgeous waterfall just north of the Texas-Oklahoma border. With such beautiful and raw scenery, we wanted to keep the elements minimal yet romantic and organic – something a bride could easily attain if she opted for a low-key wedding celebration.

We imagine our bride, SaraBeth, setting the scene with details like linen napkins and delicate escort cards. The Truvelle gown was the perfect combination of feminine and yet unfussy for a wedding in the outdoors. Her tousled fishtail braid and sweet makeup enhanced her girlish style yet looked natural enough that she could’ve done it on her own. The wild, unstructured flowers added a hint of bohemia to the shoot. We loved the way Moss Floral incorporated the raw silk ribbon from Silk & Willow in the bouquet and a few pops of color in the centerpiece in an otherwise muted environment. As SaraBeth prepared for the big day, we imagined her penning a heartfelt love note to her beholden, the one for whom she waited at the waterfall.

From the planner, Kristen of Ivory & Lace EventsDuring the Christmas holiday last year, I did a lot of hiking with my husband and it turned out to be a huge source of inspiration for this shoot. I wanted to create a look that drew heavily on nature and the natural beauty of the environment that I witnessed during hiking. I wanted an atmosphere that was as elegantly otherworldly as it was natural. The organic beauty of Turner Falls was where we drew inspiration from and was really the cornerstone of the shoot.

There’s no better way to capture a beautifully natural environment with bountiful blooms, free flowing water and long-lingering light. We paired blush-hued florals with soft green foliage and long branches loosely nestling them together in a way that made them seem like they were spilling out of their vases. The long silk ribbon blew in the wind as if to mimic the flow of the waterfall. The gown offers a soft look which was elegantly paired to the ethereal texture of the rocks and surrounding elements. The highlight of this shoot is captured through the colors of the waterfall and the delicate palette that was carefully chosen to balance out the rough terrain of Turner Falls.

Romantic Southern Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

This wedding inspiration is a southern delight, complete with a sprawling outdoor location, fabulous photos by j.woodbery photography, and darling florals by
The Sonnet House. We definitely weren’t shorted at all on the amount of pretty in this shoot: the design ideas were unreal and one example are those place settings. A heady mix of oyster gray and gold, all set atop a lovely baby pink linen. We could definitely gab all day about this inspiration!

From the photographer, j.woodbery photography: The Sonnet House is one of my absolute favorite venues to work with. Not only is it a gorgeous property, but the folks who own and run it are such a joy to be around! When we started brainstorming for this styled shoot, we were all on the same page for the colors we liked- greens and dusty pink with a pop of dark red, and some fun metallics to add texture. The more we planned and designed, the more excited we got. Everything came together so perfectly that I’m not sure it could’ve been any better! The whole shoot was so amazing and I’m excited to share it for inspiration to brides!

Corey at The Sonnet House did all of the florals (and killed them!). I love that they offer in house florals as well as catering. Magnificent Cakes created a stunning cake and The Heavenly Donut Company joined us with their doughnut truck as a treat as well! Katie and Joseph, our real couple (I actually shot their wedding two years ago!), were so much fun and were looking good in their wedding clothes! Katie had two dresses, both from Bella’s Bridal in Birmingham, one from a private label and one from Kitty Chen. Joseph’s suit and duds were all from Saks. Linens were from Decor to Adore, paperie from Max and Mila, makeup by Katina Carter, and the motorcycle borrowed from a friend.

Bohemian Bridesmaid Brunch Party

Wedding Design

We think styled shoots like this should definitely be a thing. When putting together this shoot, Callie Hobbs Photography and Yonder Floral and Decor House wanted to think out of the box and construct an editorial different from the traditional bride and groom shoot. As soon as Callie and Gretchen found an engaged model, they thought to do a glam shoot with her and her girlfriends, dressed to the nines in boho chic gowns and gorgeous hair and makeup. What a fun concept to tackle with your own bridesmaids!

From the photographer, Callie Hobbs Photography: When putting this shoot together with Gretchen of Yonder Floral and Decor House, we wanted to do something different than the standard bride and groom session. Gretchen was the brains behind this magical day! She actually found a model who is soon to be married and then we brought in two of her girlfriends to have a bridal brunch! To make it even more fun we turned it into a photo session with a bride and her best friends! Who doesn’t want a chance to get all dolled up with a fabulous braid and flawless makeup?!

Gretchen created the beautiful florals and then also made these gorgeous greenery belts for her besties in the ethereal gowns. It was the perfect touch! I could not get over how beautiful everything came together! As the girls were blasting and dancing to music, it made me wish we did something this fun before my wedding! I loved the table setting on the floor with an over hanging woven fixture. I mean wow! Gretchen is truly a talented human being! Along with the tee-pee and the fun rugs she set up in such an industrial, clean space, that made it stunning! Blanc could not have been a better location for such a fun and light-hearted event. I feel like the engagement period just flies by so to anyone in this phase of life, don’t let it pass you by! Take advantage of it and gather with people you love every chance you can!

Modern Minimalist Dallas Wedding

Garden Weddings

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

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

Chic Bridesmaid Dress Inspiration

Wedding Design

It’s safe to say that this styled shoot not only won our hearts, but also tugged on our heartstrings. Photographed by Tiffany Von Photography and planned and styled by both Whim Events and The Everyday Co., this shoot was dreamed up through the idea of brides gifting their bridesmaids sweet handkerchiefs on the day of the wedding as a sign of appreciation and love for being there through the wedding planning stages and simply, just being there. Love that! Aside from heaps of emotion, the shoot took a muted stance in terms of color and featured beautiful, cool-toned Monique Lhuillier bridesmaids dresses and floral arrangements from Whim Events that would rival any garden.

wedding calligraphy ideas - photo by Tiffany Vonn Photography http://ruffledblog.com/muted-and-neutral-bridesmaid-dress-inspiration

From the planner and designer, Whim Events: This season, we have noticed a major shift in bridal party “gifting.” More and more couples are asking our team to source beautiful, sentimental gifts to ensure their wedding party feels appreciated and loved. We designed and planned this shoot with the thoughtful and purposeful bride in mind. This vision for this shoot was to create an unforgettable bridesmaid experience and a way for the bride to artfully thank her girlfriends for their years of companionship and devotion. Set in the luxurious bridal suite of the Ames Hotel Boston, we designed a day-of setting to reflect what every bride and her maids should experience – a relaxing and joyful day, prepping in a airy and beautiful environment while receiving the ultimate pampering. And with that comes the emotional moment for every bride; thanking her best friends with the most thoughtful and heartfelt keepsakes.

Festive Wedding Celebration at Millwick

Garden Weddings

Pie-Shoppe

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.

Springtime Greenhouse Wedding Inspiration

Engagement Sessions, Wedding Design

Photos by:

Martina Wendland

When you’re in Canada and the winters can be a bit harrowing, it’s time to put your creativity to work and come up with wedding inspiration that oozes springtime warmth. Martina Wendland and The Creative Details drew their design from greenhouses while tying in classic wedding flair with a dreamy palette of blues, grays, and cream tones. One thing to certainly have on the list was an abundance of greenery and La Petite Fleur provided that and beautiful arrangements of roses, lilacs, and ferns. It’s amazing what you can dream up when you’re wishing for spring!

From the photographer, Martina Wendland: The Great North blesses us with some seriously long winters… time to hunker down by the fire and plan and dream of all things spring. The Creative Details & I put together this styled greenhouse inspiration with these words in mind: organic, classic, styled simply, pretty, garden + fresh. We had an amazing group of vendors and thoroughly enjoyed putting together wedding inspiration in a spot we all dream of some day hosting a wedding – the perfect early-spring escape from our sometimes late-to-arrive mild weather. Decked in row upon row of ferns, succulents, and blooms, the greenhouse hosted our whimsical + live wedding display.

Spring Watercolor Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Such a stunning wedding by Anna Smith Photography! There’s nothing quite like a classic wedding color palette of black and white and keeping the florals fresh with a white-and-green theme. It’s probably one of my most favorite combinations and it gets me every time, especially since I’m reminded of my own wedding day colors! I love how Madison and Chris’s big day worked in such timeless elements with very modern ones like the dapper gentlemen in tuxedos, the traditional church wedding, Madison’s eclectic bridal style (who else loves her short and textured hairdo?), and their gray-hued wedding stationery with that fun pop of orange watercolors. This wedding by Pick Me! Weddings is a great example of when different wedding styles come together so well!

From the photographer, Anna Smith Photography: Madison and Chris were such a joy to spend the day with. I first med Madison during our boudoir session, which rocked by the way. Madison had such a classic, elegant taste for the wedding day and wanted to bring in some of the couple’s cultural heritage. She fell in love with an Israeli wedding dress at a trunk show and never looked back. The dress designer was Inbal Dror and her wedding dress made for a stunning, modern and classic beauty with an open back. With help of Rami Carter from Pick Me Weddings, who traveled all the way from Colorado to style the event – the day turned out to be gorgeous.

The wedding ceremony was held at one of the oldest churches in Waco, First Baptist followed by the reception at the most up-scale Waco venue, The Ridgewood Country club. Large chandeliers and hardwood floors with beautiful lush flowers and colorful up lighting brought the day together. Parchment and Paper stationary designed her invites as well as menu place settings. Each bridesmaid wore a different dress which reflected a Grecian style in light of the groom being Greek. LoveShackFancy & Adrianna Papell were the bridesmaid dress designers. Having a large bridal party of 8 bridesmaids and 8 groomsmen is just a small reflection of how much love they received on their wedding day.

They wanted this to be a special day, but most of all fun for their guests who traveled from near and far. After dinner was served to the 200 – something guests, the highlight of the night was the gorgeous wedding cake made by the very talented Frosted Art Bakery. This was one of the most delicious cakes I have ever had! The couple’s favorite moment of the night was passing out sunglasses and having a huge dance party. Everyone loved putting these on and joined in on the fun. Overall this was such a gorgeous day and we lucked out with the weather being sunny on the first weekend of March. The sparkler exist was a treat because the exit car belonged to the bride’s grandfather!

Mountaintop Bridal Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

135milimetros

The second we saw the Cristallini gown in this bridal shoot from 135milimetros, we stopped in our tracks. Soft blue-grey lace, a dusty mauve skirt, plus an illusion neckline? Utter perfection. Add in the most jaw-dropping scenery straight from Portugal, and you’ve got the ideal bridal inspiration shoot.

From the photographers, 135milimetros: Some weeks ago we got the desire to do this styled shoot. “We have to!” – that was our feeling. When we feel this onset of inspiration we never second guess it and we always go ahead, even when that transforms the whole logistics into the greatest adventure.

Dusty Blue Winter Winery Wedding

Wedding Design

Dusty blues, crisp whites, and luxurious greens are such a natural grouping that we can’t help but love them together in this styled shoot from Ashley Errington Photography and Allium Design. This team of vendors kept everything icy cool by adding touches of silver (like the wonderful metallic cake), which you can see peppered throughout the reception table. Love!

dusty blue winter winery wedding - photo by Ashley Errington Photography http://ruffledblog.com/dusty-blue-winter-winery-wedding

From the floral designers and stylists, Allium Design: There’s just something so delightful about a winter wedding… This inspiration piece gave us an opportunity to give a little nod to the season and play with a soft palette of grey-green and dusty blue. Our happy couple (a real-life pair) was given free rein to meander through the winter vineyard and Tuscan-inspired winery. The open hillside and stone throughout the venue’s decor offered the perfect neutral backdrop for styling the space. While the color palette was a large part of the design, we wanted there to be warm contrast to the cool colors and muted silver accents. We brought in a couch with cozy blankets and textural pillows and a plush white shag rug beneath it and added lots of lush greenery throughout to soften the stone. Then we layered on an endless supply of vintage candlesticks and dusty blue candles for a soft, romantic glow.

Organic Fern Bridal Inspiration

Wedding Design

Today’s styled shoot was inspired by the incredible lace gowns you’re about to see, and for good reason. They lend a bit of a bohemian air to the shoot, which the team of B. Jones Photography and Gather rounded out with tons of greenery, delicate treats, and of course plenty of romantic details.

organic fern bridal inspiration - photo by B. Jones Photography http://ruffledblog.com/organic-fern-bridal-inspiration

from the photographer, B. Jones Photography: The inspiration for this shoot stems from the romantic French lace Yolan Cris made his gowns out of. From there, we meandered down a springtime French countryside path – a bright, open venue, mostly white florals with hints of soft blush and peach, lots of lush foliage and ferns, a romantic, hand-calligraphed invitation suite, feminine, organic rings, and a tablescape full of romance and whimsy.

Swiss Chalet Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Although today’s shoot doesn’t take place in a real-life Swiss chalet, you’d almost never know it by looking at these images. The talented team of Samantha Jay Photography, Bottle Pop Party Co., and Fresh Designs Florist created this styled wedding ripe with ideas inspired by the Alps and bier gardens, with a modern take on some rustic decor. Love!

Swiss chalet wedding inspiration - photo by Samantha Jay Photography http://ruffledblog.com/swiss-chalet-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Samantha Jay Photography: While the historic hills of the Brandywine Valley in Pennsylvania are a far cry from the snow-capped Alps in Germany and Switzerland, the roots of our inhabitants can be found there. Here you’ll also find a converted barn wedding venue whose walnut beams and white washed walls invoke the same feelings of a warm and cozy mountain chalet. The Gables at Chadds Ford was the inspiration for our alpine affair so we filled it with the work of some of our area’s most talented wedding professionals.

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!

Easy Romantic Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Ben Q Photography

What better way to end the week than with pretty brides on a beach? This inspiration shoot comes from Ben Q Photography, Events by Kristin, and R Love Floral Designs, who created this waterside scene full of lush floral design, delicious treats, and three lovely brides decked out in stunning gowns from some of today’s top designers.

easy romantic wedding inspiration - photo by Ben Q Photography http://ruffledblog.com/easy-romantic-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Ben Q Photography: The shoot concept was about a modern standard of beauty that embraces diversity. We shot three models who are each uniquely gorgeous. The backdrop was a calm sandy lake in Texas. R Love Floral used lush eucalyptus, flat fern and Italian ruscus greenery with fragrant garden roses, hellebores and lisianthus to create very loose, untamed, and natural arrangements that would complement well with the organic feel of the lake shoot.

For the Dessert Table, Amuse Bake Shop created sweets featuring color, shape, and texture, a treat for the eyes as well as the palette. Inspired by fresh fruits and natural ingredients the desserts included Poached Pears wrapped in Pastry, Peach Blackberry and Orange Upside-Down Cakes, a Toasted Lemon Meringue Cake, Caramel Nut Bars, Individual Berry & Pecan Pies, and unique Mini Cakes. One of our models is an artist and illustrated watercolors of our other two models.

Modern Whimsical Wedding

Modern Weddings

Today’s wedding from Artistrie Co, LOLA Event Productions, and Avant Gardenia features a ceremony scene that’s just about as dreamy as we’ve ever seen. Bright white walls, ivory paper lanterns, and warm candlelight set the perfect tone for Dea and Sai’s wedding, while accents of purple and grey add a pop of modern pizzazz we can’t resist.

From the photographers, Artistrie Co: Dea and Sai’s Prairie Production wedding had me smiling over and over again. The day was filled with hugs, smiles, laughter and lots of love. I loved working with these two for their urban engagement session, and have been looking forward to the wedding day ever since. With coordination by LOLA Event Productions, flowers by Avant Gardenia and catering by Paramount Events, I knew it would be a picture-perfect celebration!

Whimsical and romantic in style, Dea described her wedding vision as a fairy tale, and it was just that. I loved the purple color palette in the bridesmaids BHLDN dresses paired with the men’s classic suits and plaid purple ties. The flowers by Avant Gardenia were picture-perfect, and paired beautifully with the whimsical style. After Dea and Sai’s special first look moment, we explored the West Loop area surrounding Prairie Production. As per our lovely bride’s request, we found a few colorful graffiti walls to use for portraits with the wedding party.

After portraits, we arrived to Prairie Production for the festivities. Their candlelit ceremony was surrounded by friends and family. The setting was incredibly beautiful and romantic. After reading their handwritten vows to one another, the crowd applauded the newlyweds as they became husband and wife. Guests enjoyed Indian-inspired hors d’oeuvres, homemade Italian cookies, and signature cocktails inspired by the bride and groom. For dinner, Paramount Events created a menu that blended Dea and Sai’s two cultures, presenting guests with Indian and Italian-inspired cuisine. The meal was delicious! After some heartfelt toasts, Dea and her bridesmaids changed into saris and the dance party began! Everyone was on their feet in celebration. It was a fun night for all!

Coral Wedding with a Flower Ceremony Backdrop

Romantic Weddings

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

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

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

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

Modern Romantic Holiday Shoot

Wedding Design

We absolutely can’t believe how close Christmas is, and we’re so happy to be sharing some of our favorite holiday inspiration shoots as we get ready! Today’s shoot is sent over by Alyssa & Michelle from Cotton Weddings, Weddings by Jessee, and F Dellit Designs, who put together a shoot that’s totally modern and romantic at the same time. Deep reds, rich gold, and a touch of grey against fresh white make everything pop and make us oh-so-ready for cozy celebrations.

From the photographers, Alyssa & Michelle from Cotton Weddings: The classically elegant white interior and dramatic wooden cathedral doors of The Citadel on Kirby gave us a stunning backdrop for this styled shoot. We were inspired to design details for the modern, romantic bride who loves a touch of drama. The deep red, gold, and white color story was intended to inspire the Holiday bride without looking like a traditional Holiday wedding. Gold leafing details were incorporated throughout and are seen in the invitation suite, the dessert table, and, to top it off, the bride’s side swept romantic braid.

A Fine Flourish designed an invitation suite that felt both modern and organic; with accents of gold on soft hemp paper and grey envelopes. The stunning deep red florals by F. Dellit Designs really accentuated the design of the table scape and allowed the entire table to pop against the white walls of the citadel. Mercury glass vases and pedestals held the florals while the gold flatware paired with crystal glassware really made an elegant statement. The entire dessert table had a light, modern feel with marbling and gold leaf details on the cake, chocolate gems, and macaroons.

The simplicity of the bridesmaids holding a single deep red peony as their alternate to a bouquet supported the minimalistic elegance of their ivory dresses while allowing the bride and her dramatic bouquet to shine. From the bride’s soft gown, romantic hair, and bold red lips to the drama of the florals and romantic candlelit images of the bride and groom, the styling came together seamlessly. I adored every moment of working with Michelle and Alyssa of Michelle Able Photography, who captured every angle of the designs just as we envisioned them.

Chicago Warehouse Wedding

Blue Label, Romantic Weddings

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

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

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

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

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