Tulum Inspired Wedding With White + Rattan

Wedding Design

Jen Rodriguez

If you’ve been following the blog for a few months now, you probably know we recently took a trip to Riviera Maya and got a chance to take a peek at the intense beauty of Tulum. Well, today’s styled shoot from the fantastic team of Jen Rodriguez, Lovelyfest, and Stella Bloom Designs is bringing the memories flooding back with its pared down yet endlessly chic wedding design. With a simple color palette of white and green with some hints of wood details and terracotta, this styled shoot is not only inspiring us, but setting the wheels in motion for our next vacation planning!

When your soon-to-be proposes to you in front of Cinderella’s castle at Disney World, it makes sense that you’d want to add some fairy tale elements into your wedding day in tribute. Laura Ivanova captured the wedding of Ashley and Jon, a couple who made sure their big day was totally infused with their personalities and loves. This included a heaping portion of pink blooms put together by Sadie’s Couture Floral & Event Styling, ranging from roses to anemones to the all-time wedding favorite, peonies.

From the bride, Ashley: We wanted the entire day to be a reflection of our personalities and our relationship. Jon has always been traditional and a bit old-fashioned, whereas I tend to like things that are trendy and unique, so our wedding was a combination of our two styles. We also kept things fun and playful by adding in details that were special to us. Jon proposed in front of Cinderella’s Castle in Disney World, so we had fun creating a bit of a fairy tale theme to go along with that; my Hayley Paige gown (I called it my princess dress) and our ‘happily ever after’ cake topper were two places you can see that. Additionally, we had both lived our entire lives in Minnesota but knew that we would be moving to New Orleans shortly after the wedding, so we tried to throw in some very Minnesotan details where we could to celebrate the state we love so much! Our venues were situated in our favorite spot on the lakes in Minneapolis, just blocks from our apartment building. Taking pictures on the beach where we had walked so many times before felt special and almost surreal. Jon and I are huge hockey fans and one of our favorite things to do together is go to Wild hockey games so my parents surprised us by having the Wild mascot show up during our cocktail hour. Having him there was a huge hit with guests and the pictures that we got are priceless!

Pink has always been my favorite color so it was an easy choice for my flowers. My parents also had a pink wedding 30 years ago and their marriage means so much to me, so I wanted to give a nod to that. I am proud that even as a medical student, I managed to plan and execute a lot of the wedding details on my own! Two projects that I am really proud of are the Mr. and Mrs. signs for the back of our chairs at the reception and the table of photos displaying our parents’ and grandparents’ wedding photos.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Have fun with the planning! Try to throw in little details that are unique to YOU! I think it’s great to find inspiration from other weddings online and in magazines, but at the end of the day you should look at your wedding day and be able to say that no one else in the world could have a wedding exactly like yours. The personal details will be the ones that stand out when you think back on your day.

Modern Southern Wedding

Romantic Weddings

While today’s couple may live in California these days, they knew they wanted to get back to their roots for their biggest celebration. Tori and Jacob returned to Louisiana to exchange vows in true southern style, with sweet tea popsicles, a cake pull, and plenty of nods to Jacob’s love of football. Photography By Micahla Wilson and Botanical Occasions by Leanne Graves put in beautiful work here!

Modern Southern Wedding - http://ruffledblog.com/modern-southern-wedding

From the bride, Tori: The entire wedding planning process was so much fun – I wish I could go back and relive it all again! We picked Sainte Terre in Benton, Louisiana to have our rehearsal, wedding, and reception. Even though we live in California right now, Jacob grew up in Mississippi and I grew up in Louisiana, so it was important to us to get married in the south and close to home. There is a wonderful family who owns and runs Sainte Terre, and they made our wedding weekend better than we could have ever imagined! Everything was so personalized to us and so very special. While we were getting ready at the venue, Jacob took his groomsmen to eat at Dawg House in our college town (the place where it all started!) and then they went up to the Louisiana Tech football stadium where most of them either played football or coached years ago. Many of them live in different parts of the country now, so they enjoyed going back to their old college stomping grounds!

On that day, I wore my mom’s gold bracelet that my dad adds a diamond to every year for their anniversary. It’s my favorite piece of her jewelry and she let me wear it as my “something borrowed.” Mine and Jacob’s parents both have such strong marriages and have been great examples for us. The bracelet reminds me of all of the happy years of marriage that Jacob and I have ahead. Jacob and I didn’t do a “first look” but my dad and I did. I never showed my dad my wedding dress or anything until that day. It was such a special moment to share with him and he had hand written me the sweetest letter to read after I was married.

Our flowers and decorations were better than I ever could have dreamed of! The greenery on the walls gave the room an enchanted garden feel and the copper accents made it unique. The rich pinks and pops of blue made the reception area feel glamorous. One of my favorite touches from our florist was that she put a Cafe au lait Dahlia in my bouquet that is grown in California — a little nod to where Jacob and I have our first home together. We had vintage couches and chairs in the middle of the reception area as a fun space for guests to sit and socialize. Of course we had to incorporate football into our wedding a little bit! Our favors for guests to take were little golden bears filled with (locally made) honey because Jacob is a coach at Cal Berkeley, and their mascot is a Golden Bear! Our song that played after we walked out of the chapel was Silverscrapes by Chronic Crew. This song is popular around Cal football, and it is played all the time in the highlight videos from their games. I surprised Jacob with this song and he was so excited when he heard it start to play. He also threw a football with my garter around it instead of the traditional garter toss. Our southern sweet tea pops were such a hit! There is a lady in my hometown that makes them and they taste JUST like sweet tea. We had them in our welcome bags at the hotel and also out for people at our reception. This was such a treat for our friends who live in California and don’t get sweet tea very often!

Our food was all delicious southern-style home cooking. The chef is one of the family members that owns Sainte Terre, and she worked so hard to make sure everything was exactly how we wanted it. Jacob opted for an ice cream station instead of a traditional groom’s cake — because ice cream is his favorite dessert! A few of our favorite menu items were boudin balls, a Louisiana Shrimp boil station, mini crab and crawfish savory cheesecakes, and even a mac and cheese bar! My favorite time of the night was when Jacob and I got to sit and eat at our sweetheart table at the front of the room and just soak in the celebration. It was a short moment, but we loved getting to be surrounded by our family and friends having so much fun!My bouquet was wrapped in lace that was from my mom’s wedding dress. On the morning of the wedding, my mom gave me a small box to open. In the box was a tiny gold angel pin that she told me about once I opened it. My grandfather, who passed away when I was only three years old, had given her this to give to me on the day I got married. We added it to her lace wrapped on my bouquet so that I could carry it with me during the ceremony.

Colors of the Wind Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Today’s styled shoot is full of so many rich colors and textures, it’s difficult to know where to begin. Inspired by the romance of Disney tales, Mylyn Wood Photography and Daisy Floral Artistry created a sweet tableau complete with luscious summer fruits, colorful blooms, and inspiring wedding fashion. Let’s bring on the dreaminess!

From the photographer, Mylyn Wood Photography: We’ve all been there. Cuddled up on the couch, popcorn in hand, snuggled in a blanket and weeping over great love stories on the television. Call me juvenile but Disney’s interpretation of the story of John Smith and Pocahontas is one of the most beautiful and moving love stories ever told. Fictional yes, but fables that can make your heart race like the beating of a drum? I bow down to it.

I had been playing with the idea of doing an editorial inspired by this incredible fantasy for years but was naive in thinking it would be viewed as childish. The more I poured my heart into it as if it were MY wedding and I was living THEIR story the easier it became to do Disney and to do it right. We made sure there were nods to the era by including antique goblets, brass ornaments and a vintage compass. Efforts were made to let every detail sing but not scream of the natural elements surrounding the story. Every piece was carefully selected: the ornamental deer, the movement and illusion of wind in her gown, even the willow tree and the significance it held. We wanted a strong and powerful color palette that would blend beautifully with who I envision she would have been as a bride: deeply rooted, passionate, and softly mimicking the fantastical watercolor vision of her from the film. We made sure that both cultures, though originally thought to clash, blended smoothly. Both natural and wild coexisted wonderfully next to vintage stamps from the era, a compass he carried and even the parchment and penmanship he would have crafted.

A single, simple braid adorned her softly flowing hair allowing the wind to rush through and give us a glimpse of her first meeting with John. Placing them under the long, graceful branches of the aspen tree was so reminiscent of their visit to Grandmother Willow and it was incredibly touching to see their “First Look,” in that location. The cake itself was winking to Grandmother willow herself with our baker constructing a cake that boasted the texture and visual of her bark while being sweet, unique and steadfast. Including a groom’s cake was also important, showing the blossoming of the dirt they dug in search of greed and the beautiful love that enveloped instead. Our real emphasis was put on the passion within the romance. The courageous love that was declared, the path that was chosen with difficulty and the love that lived through the worst of circumstances. Their vows were meant to be viewed as love letters and our subtle inclusions of the compass within the invitations were purposefully done to indicate their choices made with determination, zeal and without fear. So many of us have dreamt of having a fairy tale wedding but it comes with a fear of being obvious, amateur or naive. We are proudly proving that you can have your fairy tale wedding and it can be everything you ever dreamed of.

Classic and Romantic Savannah Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Izzy Hudgins

When we think of getting married in the south, we envision a beautiful affair filled with romantic tones and gorgeous design elements rolling all over the place. So when we saw Morgan and John’s nuptials took place in southern-traditional Savannah, we had to take a closer look at Izzy Hudgins‘s account of their big day and of course, we were so delighted about everything we saw. From Kiwi Fleur‘s elegant ivory and peach floral arrangements to the couple’s uniquely-designed reception venue, we’re positive you’ll fall in love with this southern affair.

From the bride, Morgan: We wanted a traditional, romantic, southern, winter wedding in the place we love the most, Savannah, Georgia. We were going for classic and romantic for the ceremony and the reception was so lively and fun. The colors were silver and gray, ivory, and peach. Simple and subtle, but everything really popped out against the different settings.

Marsais

Getting right out and saying it, this wedding anniversary session is touching and a tear-jerker to say the least. We’re so thankful to have had Marsais share such a beautiful shoot representing real, deep love and Joy and Ben’s story is one for the ages. With the help of Jade Magnolia‘s boho chic design and Clementine‘s lovely blooms, this astounding couple certainly deserved a terrific way to mark their wedding anniversary and this shoot was it. Read their incredible story below and be sure to have a tissue handy to wipe those tears!

From the photographer, Marsais: It’s a special occasion working in the wedding industry when a couple immediately touches your heart, at such a young age, and inspires you all the same. That is the start of the story of Ben + Joy, who are celebrating their wedding anniversary. This is no ordinary love story, but one of courage and determination and a love that runs deep and wide.

At age 16 Ben was diagnosed with an extremely rare bone cancer. The battle would begin, taking his right leg to repair his spine and and giving him a 10% chance of survival. At age 18, he was diagnosed again, with odds that you can imagine, completely did not serve in his favor. He met Joy during this time and their friendship began and ultimately, united them. It has been a long, arduous journey for any young man to endure but 7 years in remission, he finally got to marry the love of his life. Unsure if this day would ever arrive, it was a celebration their friends and family will never forget.

Marking their wedding anniversary is extremely important for them. It represents the fight they have for each other, the will to overcome such heartbreak and the power that love and faith represent in their life. We couldn’t think of a better place to represent such growth and life in their session than having this anniversary shoot take place at the incredible Greenhouse in Driftwood. A very place which uniquely represents such incredible and rare treasures. A location filled with light and love. We wish Ben + Joy nothing but extreme happiness in their long life together! We are celebrating with you guys!

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!

Garden Pacific Northwest Wedding

Romantic Weddings

As if we don’t dish out enough, here is some beautiful wedding eye-candy from the astounding lens of Amanda K Photography. Taylor and Mike’s nuptials in Seattle focused heavily on the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, while also incorporating natural and earthy tones you can’t ever go wrong with. Stacy Anderson Design kept the blooms elegant in tone and style and Alexis Marie Events wrangled all of the fine details of the day to make sure that even in a rainstorm typical for the northwest, everything was still a vision to behold.

From the bride, Taylor: My vision was sort of a mish mash of a few different themes: A garden wedding, with the feeling of a seaside affair while paying tribute to the Pacific Northwest. With guests coming from all over the country, we wanted them to really have a great time. I wanted lots of lush greenery and ferns, soft natural tones, lush florals, and elements like sun bleached mussel shells strewn on the dining tables and a raw oyster station to bring in the ocean. I was aiming for elegant, earthy and personalized.

I also wanted a huge emphasis on photographs. We made a large display table inside with dozens of framed family photos, ranging from antique portraits of my grandmother’s wedding day to photos of our parents as kids, and everything in between. We had a few baby and family photo albums on display, and then I got tons of loose prints made as well. My aim was for every guest at the wedding to be able to find themselves in a photograph somewhere – loose prints we strewn onto the coffee tables and high tops for people to be able to thumb through during cocktail hour. We also had a photo booth for some fun candids, and our guestbook was our trusty little Fuji film Polaroid camera.

We didn’t have a ton of DIY elements, but we had tons of personalized elements throughout the day. What we did create was the escort card display, where I pasted cards into a vintage window we bought. My talented cousin created sketches that we used in lieu of table numbers, highlighting all the different locations that Mike and I have lived or hold dear to us. It was a really wonderful way to incorporate all the traveling and moving we have done, while simultaneously including our guests who had come in from or also cherish all those various locations. We also chose coffee as our favors (Seattle, duh!), but chose the brand based on its name, Herkimer coffee – Herkimer is a county in rural upstate NY, and between my family’s vacation home up there and Mike’s family being from Rochester NY, everyone instantly recognized the coincidence in the name and loved it! We had stamps made by my friend Allison, using the calligraphy that Libby designed for us, and stamped all the coffee with our “logo”. Also, my brother graciously made a customized corn hole set for us by hand! We also created cards for each guest’s seat, thanking them for joining us and reminding them how much it meant to us.

Along with the dozens of photographs that we brought, we also brought about half of our home to be used as decor! The rug we stood on during our ceremony was my grandmother’s; Mike was wearing his grandfather’s tie clip; we brought a vintage globe and old wooden soda crate for the guest book display; lots of brass candlesticks and trays to place around the venue; my brother played guitar as I walked down the aisle with my dad, and the song he played was “Here Comes the Sun”, which was my parents’ recessional song at their own wedding; instead of a reading or poem during the ceremony, we had Mike’s mom prepare some thoughts on love and marriage, which she shared and moved everyone; instead of a stranger, we had Mike’s brother-in-law marry us; we brought in the ferns to adorn the aisle, and the coffee favors sat on my grandmother’s old tray table.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? If things don’t go the way you planned, don’t sweat it! You’re the only two (and your planner) who know that it didn’t go “your way” – your guests won’t ever know! Some things, big or small, are bound to go wrong.

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

This charming and whimsical Florida wedding captured by Rad Red Creative is a total must-see. It has the most delightful vintage details and the way Susie and Hayden dressed up The Southern Barn is such a dream. They left no vintage stone unturned and everything from their wedding stationery to their reception’s wedding lounge area has shabby chic and antique written all over it. To complement the day, Bloomingdale Florist created elegant floral arrangements with a variety of colors and florals like peonies and garden roses. The forecast of rain definitely did not cast a shadow on this beautiful and wonderfully-detailed day!

Florida wedding venues - photo by Rad Red Creative http://ruffledblog.com/southern-charm-florida-wedding

From the bride, Susie: Springtime in Florida has some of the best weather. Generally nice and sunny during the day and cooler in the evenings. Plants and flowers are at their peak of blooming and coming into fullness and color. We also got engaged in March of the previous year and hoped for about a year-long engagement. We gave ourselves about a full year to plan so that we were really able to take or time picking out our favorite vendors and figuring out how we could best use this day to not only celebrate our love but also to reflect both of our personalities, individually and together.

Intimate Alabama Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Austin Gros

What do you get when Austin Gros photographs a beautiful wedding day in Alabama? Something very lovely, of course! We can’t get enough of how simple and intimate Sarah and Will’s deep south wedding is, nor can we get over that it looks so effortless and yet so refined at the same time. Using the stunning nature scenes surrounding them, Invision Events transformed a family home from the groom’s side into the perfect location to continue their family legacy. Talk about tearjerker! Marked swooped in and added some impressive blooms from the ceremony altar pieces to the floral crowns worn by the bride and her maids. We love how this Alabama day is so heartfelt and steeped in family roots!

Alabama weddings - photo by Austin Gros Photography http://ruffledblog.com/intimate-alabama-wedding

From the bride, Sarah: Will and I wanted a small, intimate wedding. As we searched around for venues, we had a little bit of difficulty finding that right place. On a visit to Will’s father’s house, it occurred to me that the whole time the place for us was right under our noses! In early 1975, Will’s grandfather (Papa) found an old shotgun in Marvin, Alabama, and moved it to 13 acres he owned in Opelika. It’s a special place, set off the road a few hundred yards and surrounded by pines and hardwoods. When Papa died, he left the home to Will’s father. The house itself is a piece of Whatley family history. We decided to (humbly) add to the legacy by having our ceremony and reception there.

Soft Bridal Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Sometimes you just need heaps and heaps of pink and loveliness to stare at, like this bridal inspiration shoot by JOJO Photography and FilmAlchemy Styled pulled out all of the stops and drew up a shoot with all shades of pink imaginable, from the softest blush to the sweetest cotton candy pink, and further down to the deep magenta shades. Sumptuous blooms and botanicals were strewn all over the place by rose bredl, only adding to the whole femininity of the shoot. Pairing the pinks with a cool tone of gray paper goods gave it such a classic feel. This is certainly one shoot that left us wanting more of it!

From the photographer, Jennifer of JOJO Photography and Film: I created these images in collaboration with some amazingly talented female creatives in Columbus, Ohio. The shoot was planned to specifically feature the new Bohindi Bride line of accessories. The look was made to be soft and free, as well as bohemian but glamourous.

Spring Blooms Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Up on the blog today is this lovely and ultra-colorful shoot captured by Sarah Maren Photography. If you’re in need of some bright inspiration, this shoot conjured up by Kate Whelan Events is it. It’s got a great dose of beautiful blooms by Flourish, intricate details all over that fabulous reception table, and last but definitely not least, stunning gowns. You really could not ask for much more in this shoot!
Sarah Maren Photography

From the event designer, Kate Whelan Events: Spring has sprung with this beautiful garden inspirational shoot. We wanted to feature some of our favorite Spring florals, from poppies to peonies – and we brought together some of our favorite local vendors to create a tablescape and dessert table that make their mark against the incredible backdrop that is Park Winters. Amazing gowns – including one classic Amsale stunner – are featured with garden-like bouquets. Everything is simply inspired by the Spring flowers used throughout in pops of pretty color.

Elegant Umbrian Castle Wedding

Elegant Weddings

Photos by:

Cinzia Bruschini

An absolutely stunning and enthralling wedding in Italy’s always-gorgeous Umbria region? Why yes, please! Photographer Cinzia Bruschini set our Tuscany-loving hearts aflame after she sent us this beauty, and if I had to describe the whole wedding, I would just say let your pinning commence. The wedding of Valeria and Pier Luigi took place in a castle near the Tiber River, and it is your quintessential Italian outdoor wedding with spacious tables and some of the most delicious-looking food I have ever laid my eyes on. It’s complete with lovely punches of blush pink and wine-colored red blooms from Il Fiora di Paola in the midst of a neutral color palette designed by BiancoAntico.

bridal portrait ideas photo by Cinzia Bruschini http://ruffledblog.com/elegant-umbrian-castle-wedding

From the photographer, Cinzia Bruschini: The wedding of Valeria and Pier Luigi is a classic Italian, elegant wedding with a vintage touch. The venue was an amazing castle on one of the most beautiful hills dominating the valley of the river Tiber. It is formed by an important villa, resulting from its sixteenth century refurbishment of a late medieval and renaissance castle, complete with panoramic terraces and lush hanging gardens.

Neutral Lake Tahoe Wedding

Romantic Weddings

You can bet your bottom dollar that this gorgeously-shot Jeremiah and Rachel Photography has left me more enthralled with Lake Tahoe than I already was. Those dusty blue waters and sprawling landscapes are breathtaking enough as it is, but when you add weddings and romance to the mix, I fall even more in love, like with Kelsey and Chris’s big day. They kept their color palette neutral and clean, and sprinkled such pin-worthy goodness in the form of their design and florals thanks to Hunter & Company Events and B&B Designs. Fans of minimal stylings and just a gorgeous wedding in general, this is a must-see.

lake tahoe weddings photo by Jeremiah and Rachel Photography http://ruffledblog.com/neutral-lake-tahoe-wedding

From the bride, Kelsey: Chris and I wanted our wedding day to reflect how we try to live our lives everyday: with maximum amounts of laughter and minimum amounts of stress. Of course, with our families, hosting a stress-free day is near impossible and sometimes you laugh to keep from crying. Our big day was filled with all the emotions, and it ended up being more amazing than we could have ever imagined because of it.

Cedar Lake Estate Wedding Inspiration

The More We See

Right off the bat, I am going to fully confess I fell hard for this shoot cleverly done by The More We See and crafted together by Heart & Dash and Kate Farley Design. It tugged on the endearing heart strings of mine when I saw the first few pictures of the couple waking up together on their wedding day; no worries of “bad luck,” just a sweet and tender moment shared between them and a lovely breakfast of bagels, coffee, and those divine-looking rosemary grapefruit cocktails before heading out to get married. I am so smitten right now with how creative and darling this entire shoot is. Not to mention, there’s so many pin-worthy elements!

small wedding ideas - photo by The More We See http://ruffledblog.com/cedar-lake-estate-wedding-inspiration

From the event designers, Heart & Dash:
The big world of social media allows us to discover some pretty amazing people and places right from the comfort of our sofa. It was on one of my journeys down the rabbit hole that is Instagram that I discovered Cedar Lake Estate about a year ago. It took me all of two seconds to fall in love with the property. So when The More We See reached out to us recently to see if we’d be interested in working with them on a shoot, we pitched the idea of using Cedar Lake as our setting.

Southern Oak Tree Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

There is really nothing more beautiful than giant southern oak trees, Spanish moss hanging from them, and sprawling land behind it. Beyond a doubt, Erin Wilson Photography knew just what she had in mind for these trees when she dreamt up this gorgeous inspiration. Together with Angela Sostarich Photography, the two photography mavens shot an editorial complete with romantic colors, swirling fabrics, and lush florals. My excitement for this shoot is through the roof!

Southern Oak Tree Wedding Inspiration - photo by Erin Wilson Photography and Angela Sostarich Photography http://ruffledblog.com/southern-oak-tree-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Erin Wilson Photography: A Texas girl living in an Arkansas world. I grew up in Houston Texas and because of the love of my life I relocated to Arkansas to his home town and photograph weddings all over the state. A big part of my heart still yearns for Texas and southern oak trees with spanish moss and just the feeling of the deeper south. I collaborated on a very southern style yet stylish and fresh shoot with many Houston Texas wedding vendors to put together this green, fresh and romantic editorial. We were inspired by shades of green, creamy blush, soft billowy fabrics, romantic florals, soft watercolor tones and the gorgeous oaks at Houston Oaks Country Club.

Plum & Oak Photo

I can’t tell you how excited I am to share this beautiful Plum & Oak Photo collaboration with Kelsey Rae Designs and Carla Kayes Floral Design. The old world feel of the venue, the moodiness of the photos and the shoot altogether, and how much this reminds me of an 19th-century romantic novel are a few of the things I adore so much about it. The big topic of this whole shoot, though, is that stunning agate-designed cake by Sweet Cheeks Bakery. Agate is popping up everywhere and I’m glad it’s found a spot with weddings. Use them as table numbers, decorate your floral table runner with agate colors that stand out, or like this shoot, plant them onto your wedding cake.

Moody Agate Wedding Inspiration - photo by Plum and Oak Photo http://ruffledblog.com/moody-agate-wedding-inspiration

From the event designer, Kelsey Rae Designs: The second I stepped foot on Vista Valley Country Club, I could just feel how special it was. It has an old world charm that makes it super unique, and now one of my favorite venues in San Diego County. Instinctively, Elyse of Plum and Oak Photo and I wanted to do a shoot that showcased the unexpected. As with most things we do together, the idea clicked right away for both of us. We looked at each other and said, let’s go moody and bring in agate and other things you wouldn’t think would be in this type of romantic setting.

Swan House Spring Wedding Inspiration

Never in my life have I come across a shoot more utterly romantic than today’s feature from Simply Sarah Photography and Elleson Events. Featuring not one but two stunning gowns (one of which boasts a beautiful icy blue skirt), a venue that’s nothing short of breathtaking, and a wedding table we can’t help but love, we know you won’t be able to resist the photo shoot’s beauty either.

Today, we’re taking you to The historic Swan House mansion with natural wedding inspiration, organic details and a perfect Alexandra Grecco wedding gown with floral detailing flown all the way in from the Bozeman, Montana. We chose a neutral color palette infused with soft pops of rose quartz and serenity, the pantone colors of the year. These delicate details paired perfectly with the stunning architecture of The Swan House and allowed the sweet love shared between these two to really shine!

Earthy Greenhouse Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Hello, grass place mats! When this wedding made its way into our inbox, it was one we all immediately fell head over heels in love with. There was an overcast haze throughout this shoot, but it seems to have elevated these fantastic colors Ninth & Everett used in this Christy Wilson Photography shoot. The cool and crisp colors of the venue emphasized the overall neutral palette found on the handwritten Italian paper menus and the pink and white darling centerpieces by The Farmers Florist. This shoot is just a win all around.

From the event planners and designers, Ninth & Everett: When we initially partnered with Christy Wilson of Christy Wilson photography, we discussed the idea of working with one of Nashville’s most beautiful new venues, Long Hollow Gardens & Nursery. We wanted to take a very natural environment and add a rich touch of luxury to create the perfect balance of earthy and elegance – A modern but timeless greenhouse wedding.

How lucky is it to be able to pull off a beautiful Galia Lahav wedding dress straight off of the runway and use it in a shoot with Connie Whitlock? Quite lucky, indeed! We’re so excited to share these yummy photos with you so you can go gaga over all of the beautiful details of Moss Denver‘s transformation, and the modern color palette with the Victorian garden-esque florals by Flora by Nora. Simply amazing!

industrial modern Colorado wedding inspiration - photo by Connie Whitlock Photography http://ruffledblog.com/industrial-modern-colorado-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Connie Whitlock: The inspiration for the colors, mood, and style of the shoot came from the invitation suite provided by Wedding Paper Divas. The shoot took place in a modern/urban venue, but we kept the decor very organic and simple. The stunning dress by Galia Lahav is fresh off the runway – we lucked out and had a chance to incorporate it while it’s going around on the trunk show circuit. We loved the juxtaposition of the clean, elegant lines of the modern, urban, industrial venue against the organic feel of all of the decor we chose. We chose organic textures like rustic wood, silks, and linens, and layered with a simple color palette and lush florals. We used overflowing floral to accent everything and to create that look.

Chic Navy Wedding in Tahoe

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

onelove photography

Lake Tahoe is such a breathtaking place and the images onelove photography captured from Janelle and Jamie’s wedding have made it a definite location to visit on my bucket list. I love everything about this wedding, especially how beautifully Elise Events complemented the woodsy surroundings by incorporating rustic tones and creamy whites that stand out beautifully amongst all of the greenery. And let’s not forget those pops of navy dotted all over the wedding! I’m talking in particular about those stunning Adrianna Papell dresses. If you’re ever looking for a way to have a color strewn in to your wedding effortlessly, have your bridesmaids wear the shade of your choice. Brilliant idea!

chic navy wedding in Tahoe - photo by onelove photography http://ruffledblog.com/chic-navy-wedding-in-tahoe

From the bride, Janelle: Jamie and I are a very easy going couple. We wanted our day to truly reflect our personalities- casual, fun and outdoorsy. We chose Tahoe as it is one of our top three favorite place to visit in summer time. Since it was a destination wedding, we wanted our guests to be able to make a weekend out of the trip, so Tahoe was the perfect weekend getaway for our guests. We kept the ceremony short and sweet, and went away with some of the traditional wedding moments such as the bouquet toss and the parents dances. Cocktail hour was casually held on the grass while our guests sipped moscow mules and old fashions.

Botanical Australian Barn Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Lara Hotz

Just one glimpse of this Lara Hotz wedding and I was immediately floored. With the romantic styling of She Designs at Tocal Homestead paired with how lovely Cindy and Robert look together, this wedding blew me away. The venue is the epitome of a beautiful Australian farm, and Cindy and Robert chose to play upon its strengths by incorporating lush greenery and ivory-colored blooms around the ceremony area and in the reception barn. The addition of copper laced into their table centerpieces was just brilliant. See for yourself how everything came together to be such a romantic setting.

botanical Australian barn wedding - photo by Lara Hotz Photography http://ruffledblog.com/botanical-australian-barn-wedding

From the bride, Cindy: As the reception was in a barn, we loved the natural wood structure of the barn and wanted the décor to reflect the natural materials of the venue. We also wanted the décor to have a wonderfully lush greenery feel to it so that it would feel like there was an element of the outside inside. The beautiful grounds of Tocal Homestead was also an inspiration. It was so difficult to pick any specific theme. We wanted it to be beautifully green and being held in a barn, it was natural that the theme would lean towards a rustic barn theme. We also had a “tiki” bar area at the heritage barn site for the guests to have some nibbles and drinks in between the ceremony and entering the reception barn. The tiki bar was a nod to our Hawaii engagement and we had Kona beers which we loved when visiting the Kona Brewing Company on Big Island (which only arrived into Australia the day before the wedding!) in our “beer bath”. The bar was also littered with fresh mint, lemons, limes and artichokes for a farmers markets feel.

Greek Inspired Colorado Ranch Wedding

Romantic Weddings

A wedding with 500 guests isn’t easy to pull off, but Mari and Tomas managed it brilliantly with the help of Steve Stanton Photography, Calluna Events, and The Perfect Petal. The day was full of elegance, tradition, and hometown charm, using a recurring motif of olive branches to tie everything together brilliantly.

Greek inspired Colorado ranch wedding - photo by Steve Stanton Photography http://ruffledblog.com/greek-inspired-colorado-ranch-wedding

From the bride, Mari: Tomas and I both have very large, exciting and involved families. I’m Greek and Tomas is Spanish, with both cultures being very passionate, when we come together everything escalates quickly. When the news spread from California to Colorado and overseas to Greece and Spain, everyone was ready and elated for the marriage of Tomas and I. Our engagement party set the foundation for our planning, reminding us that no matter what comes our way during the process we were going to throw the most elegant, meaningful, passionate celebration. This celebration was not only for us but also for every single person that helped us get to where we are today. So from there the blueprints of our dream wedding were mapped out. After losing my mother five years ago, wedding planning was very emotional to take on by myself. It was a time in my life that I always dreamed I would have my mom by my side. Together we were a dream team when it came to planning, and without her, I knew every decision would be bittersweet, wishing that she could be a part of all the details. Keeping her always at the front of mind through the entire planning process she helped as my guardian angel. Being an event planner and marketer by trade, I had a clear vision of what we wanted and needed.

The photographers behind today’s shoot, McCoy Made Photography, describe it as an organic and timeless look — and how could we possibly disagree? From the bride’s simple yet chic dress to the succulent tablescape to the light color palette, this shoot is guaranteed to be as inspiring today as it is years from now. Special mention to Sincerely Ginger Weddings for the event design and Bloom Floral Design for the floral decor!

Whitney and Jason married in California, bringing some of the charm of the outdoors inside while also infusing rustic elements with a modern feel. Thank you to Desi Baytan and Modern LA Weddings for bringing everything together!

From the event designers, Modern LA Weddings: For Whitney & Jason’s wedding, our goal was to design a wedding characterized as modern rustic chic. Our challenge was to create an elevated take on the notion of outdoor charm – rustic without compromising refinement. The entire design story of the wedding is essentially a harmonious dialogue between rustic and elegant aesthetics. We came up with the concept of Restoration Hardware meets Equestrian Elegance. When I think of modern rustic, I immediately think of the wooden, metal, and organic textures found in a Restoration Hardware catalogue. We took these masculine textures and brought them softness and beauty through florals, fabrics, and colors.

From the photographer, A.Fogarty Photography: As “wedding season” here in New England began to slow down I kept dreaming of a romantic styled collaboration for the off-season. I wanted to create an opportunity to step outside the box, spark creativity, and let creative juices flow. A chance to create authentic images that showcased all of the talents of the vendors involved. I dreamt of a rustic romantic bridal boudoir styled collaboration.

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…

Charming Rustic Upstate Farm Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Elena Wolfe

When you pair a barn wedding venue with crystal chandeliers and twinkle string lighting, total magic happens. Jen and Chris, a college sweetheart couple, had a darling wedding with a soft color palette photographed by Elena Wolfe and coordinated by C + A Event Planning, who also took on the floral design.

From the bride, Jen: Chris and I are college sweethearts who fell in love on the campus of SUNY Binghamton. When we got engaged, we were two-young and free spirits, who just finished undergraduate and graduate school and were looking to start our professional careers. We waited two years before we decided to get married, and we couldn’t agree more with the saying, “Patience is a virtue and the best things in life are worth waiting for,” – Julia Spira.

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!

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.
