Colorful Bohemian German Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

An outdoor boho chic wedding doesn’t always have to be in an earthy setting as Sarah and Martin’s vibrant Germany wedding proves. Expertly photographed by Ashley Ludaescher Photography, hosting a bohemian-style fête on the grounds of an impressive estate like this one in the equally-impressive German countryside is just as perfect! Choosing a palette with moody reds as the foundation, Love Circus transformed Sarah and Martin’s wedding venue into a hip location with the right amount of elegance from Ulrike Buchheim‘s floral designs. All of the different elements and trends harmonizing so well together has us gleaming with delight!

From the photographer, Ashley Ludaescher Photography: This wedding beautifully styled by Love Circus, was so much fun to photograph. With a bohemian garden theme, guests enjoyed the beautiful summer weather in Northern Germany on the stunning grounds of Schloss Herzfelde. Guests escaped the city and spent the weekend celebrating Sarah & Martin tying the knot after a decade together. From the flower crown station for the guests to create their own flower crowns, to the bride’s gorgeous Mira Zwillinger dress, the weekend was filled with beautiful touches and details. Sarah works in fashion and her dress purchased from Brown’s Bride in London fit her perfectly and matched the relaxed sophisticated vibe of the wedding weekend.

Mixing and matching wedding style ideas can be nerve-wracking, especially if the two or more ideas are complete polar opposites of one another. Opt for having luscious florals if you’re seeking out an elegant wedding and toss your more modern ideas in during cocktail hour, as seen here in Sarah and Martin’s fun and bohemian wedding lounge area. A huge tip for pulling the ideas off: be sure to keep the color choices consistent throughout your big day!

Mid-Century Mod Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Bright colors, a fun and festive setting, and a beautiful couple are what makes this wedding inspiration so great to look at. This San Francisco wedding event was inspired by the coolness of the mod 1960s and we can’t blame them! It was a lively time and everything was as vibrant and energetic as it could be. Don’t miss the eye-popping shades of aqua and orange, paired with some incredible details from florals to that retro wedding cake that looks almost too good to eat.

Modern Geo Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

There’s nothing that’s more impressive than when vendors brainstorm to design a shoot that has us enthralled with the creativity and talent they have. Shelley K Photography and Haley Hueckman did just that and what came from their collaboration is quite amazing. One of the things that we’ve learned is that if there’s anywhere that a black wedding dress can work so well, this shoot has proved to us it’s in the desert, paired with the most eye-catching flowers by Bramble & Brass and those sultry jewel tones.

From the photographer, Shelley K Photography: This modern geometric wedding editorial took place in the high desert region of eastern Oregon. The shoot was styled with a love of geometry and equilateral shapes as well as deep jewel tones. The jewel tones paired beautiful with the neutral backdrop of the landscape and created great contrast. We also wanted to step outside the box with a black wedding dress. All florals were foraged locally in eastern Oregon.

Like brides, grooms are most certainly entitled to jazz up their wedding day threads. Classic tuxedo jacket styles in black or cream are always a winner, but picking out a navy blue, ruby red, or even emerald green tuxedo jacket will be sure to wow everyone. Mixing and matching different prints are another fun way to show your sartorial skills, like this groom who dressed up his casual linen blue jacket with a diamond-print bowtie. Quite snazzy to say the least!

Cutting open sweet-smelling citrus fruits like these and displaying them in and around your wedding tables are a fun way to dress up your tablescapes if they’re in need of more styling. They add brilliant pops of color and an even bigger plus is that they smell divine!

Tuscan Inspired Terrain Wedding

Garden Weddings

A wedding inspired by Mediterranean colors at Terrain is always a good thing and in the case of Phoebe and Tim’s wedding, it’s a great thing. Ali & Paul Co. were the maestros behind the camera for their big day, catching shots of the organic-colored, Sicily-inspired wedding day. The deep and rich hues from this wedding are a match made in heaven with the venue, to say the least, and Katie Rebecca Events worked wonders to fuse everything together so effortlessly! Weddings like these are certainly a few of our favorite things.

Terrain wedding

From the bride, Phoebe: I always wanted something that was lush with greenery and botanicals. Tim’s grandfather came from Sicily, so we wanted to capture some of that feel, with the ash-green leaves and oranges. I love the juxtaposition of masculine hues with touches of light, feminine colors, so the palette of dark emerald, navy, apricot, and cream worked perfectly. I showed Katie, our wedding planner, some ideas of things I liked, but then she took those ideas and ran with them — and produced something amazing! We gave her style guidelines, but in the end, we trusted her eye and her expertise and gave free reign to her to create and pull together all the details.

Tim and I both have a sibling that was not part of the direct wedding party. However, my brother and Tim’s sister are very important to us, so we wanted to include them in a very special way. They not only read passages during the ceremony, but they also gave speeches, in addition to our maid of honor/best man, in lieu of traditional parent/family speeches. My brother’s speech was unexpectedly laugh-out-loud hilarious and the big hit of the night! Also crazy is the story of my wedding cake: Several years ago, I was a food editor for Cooking Light magazine. I’m very picky about my desserts, so my dear, dear ex-coworker Deb (who is an amazing pastry chef) handmade the personal coconut cake and shipped it to us overnight from Birmingham, AL!

The hanging florals Terrain created for the reception were amazing! I also loved my bouquet — it was so heavy because of just how full Terrain’s floral design team packed it! It’s hard to narrow it down, but I have to also mention the tables/place settings. The napkins + goblets + gold flatware + candles + foliage and oranges was everything that I was hoping for. Katie of Katie Rebecca Events and her team totally delivered.

I think the best moments were when you KNEW you made the right choice because they just GET you. This was especially true when talking to our ceremony vendors. Our officiant, Donna, really wanted to tell our story and write a custom ceremony that was very personal, which was exactly what I had always hoped for. I wanted the ceremony music to be very us, which wasn’t the traditional songs or hymns but also nothing dance-down-the-aisle crazy either! Our musicians, Shawn and Sharon, made the perfect suggestions right away. I fell in love with their rendition of Bob Dylan/Adele’s “To Make You Feel My Love” as soon as I heard it — gave me goosebumps!

Tim and I did a first look. In the nearly 9 years we’ve been together, I’ve barely seen Tim get emotional. He did when he turned around and saw me. It’s funny — I cry a lot at my friends’ weddings, but I didn’t even shed a tear at mine… just lots of laughter! Tim and I are not dancers, so we took classes, like many couples. We only were able to make it to two classes, though, so we were very worried we were going to mess up the steps, even though it wasn’t a true choreographed dance (it was just the rumba). So after photos, while our guests were still at cocktail hour, we snuck into the reception area and practiced like crazy, haha. Lastly, I didn’t expect our father/daughter or mother/son dances to be so emotional. I kept cracking jokes so my dad wouldn’t be too sad. He’s pretty stoic in person.

From the photographers, Ali & Paul Co.Tim & Phoebe wanted a Tuscan inspired wedding surrounded by their closest friends and family. They shared 8 years together and finally planned the wedding of their dreams, thanks to the help of wedding planner, Katie Rebecca. They tied together her favorite color palette of navy, emerald and apricot and created a dreamy reception space filled with citrus and olive leaves. From hand painted wedding invitations, floral creations by Terrain, and mini bottles of Limoncello with custom watercolor and calligraphy tags in place of a seating chart, the details pulled everything together perfectly!

Casey Brodley, Photographer

I’m not a traditional wedding photographer. My background and training is steeped in photo journalism, so that’s how I approach a wedding. My goal is to document the day, not stage it. I let moments unfold naturally, with minimal prom posing and minimal “say cheese” interference.

As a photo journalist, I come prepared for anything. Every wedding is different. I have witnessed full-grown men weep more times than I can count. I have seen smiles so wide that I’m concerned someone may burst a blood vessel. I have climbed mountains with all my gear. And this one time a sprinkler system was triggered during a ceremony.

As a wedding photographer, I walk into every job with the guarantee that I will witness pure joy. But more importantly, I walk into every job with the probability that my day will end with cake. I like to keep my cake-to-work ratio balanced. For health reasons.

Jackson Pollock Inspired Wedding Editorial

Wedding Design

There’s nothing that says “modern” quite like a Jackson Pollock painting. The artist’s drip-style of painting is quite well-known and with the surge of modern wedding trends, we knew this Pollock-style splatter look would make its way in! Mikkel Paige Photography captured the lovely images from this Pollock-inspired wedding shoot and they are brilliant. With a team of vendors like Color Pop Events and Blade Floral and Event Designs, it’s no wonder this wedding editorial turned into a funky and fun minimalist playground!

modern wedding ideas - http://ruffledblog.com/jackson-pollock-inspired-wedding-editorial

From the photographer, Mikkel Paige Photography: Dobbin St is the hottest new venue in New York City, located in a very trendy area of Brooklyn on in Williamsburg. Wanting to be amongst the first vendors and “wedding” in the space that opened just two months ago, this very talented team of popular NYC vendors came together to create this Jackson Pollock inspired, vibrant inspirational shoot.

The color palette was chosen to play off the already amazing curated art and colors in the venue: black and white with pops of yellow, mauve, green and blue (“Yves Klein blue” particularly on the front exterior statement wall, a color first mixed by this famous artist around 1960.) Everything in the shoot played off those colors, with an addition of Pollock-like splatter paint throughout particularly on the dinner plates, cake and guest book paper. Two other well known artists are highlighted at the venue including Christine Gedeon who created the mural on the back wall out of tape, inspired by an aerial view and side view of the Manhattan/Brooklyn landscape as seen from the venue’s rooftop, and custom wallpaper by Brooklyn native Sarah Merenda. A blue sequin tablecloth, pink boutonnieres and bouquets, an incredible stationery suite custom designed for the shoot by Bliss and Bone, and a stunning Hayley Paige gown all contribute to this absolutely outstanding wedding shoot.

Game of Thrones on the Beach Wedding Editorial

The More We See

Who’s a “Game of Thrones” fanatic over here? Raise your hand proudly and if your spirit animal is Daenerys, you’re going to fawn over this ultra-creative shoot from the lens of The More We Seebelovely floral and event design wondered what the Mother of Dragons’ wedding day would look like if she decided to get hitched, and it’s nothing short of amazing. With a beach-boho vibe and a striking black dress separate, we think Dany would definitely approve of this intimate wedding inspiration.

From the event designers, belovely floral and event design: When we thought about doing a beach photo shoot, we wanted to put a creative spin on it. For any East Coast (Philadelphia/Jersey) residents, a ‘wedding down the shore’ always has that typical nautical vibe going with it, and we wanted to try something new! At the time of planning our photo shoot, Game of Thrones was still running and we thought to ourselves, “What if Daenerys got married?”

We found ourselves answering with a beach wedding filled with rich tones, textures, unexpected elements and of course a touch of “fire.” For a girl who is always wearing white or blue, we envisioned her in a beautiful black wedding gown allowing her to really pop off the oceanic landscapes. We designed the shoot to of course have a few coastal touches (cause you can’t fully ignore the ocean!) along with Moroccan and bad-ass elements – Mother of Dragons is nothing short of the toughest girl we know!

Brightly Colorful Sequined Wedding

Modern Weddings

Maybe it’s a girly girl’s thing, but we can never have enough glam, gold, or sequins and we’re so thrilled this A.J. Dunlap Photography wedding came our way. Kast Events and crew worked their magic all over the modern venue and transformed it into a shining spectacle. Eclectic Sage certainly stopped the show with those elaborate and gorgeous floral arrangements. In every bright color you could think of or imagine, the blooms worked so well against all of the sequined decor. Shout out to the bride’s floral crown, especially; it’s so divine!

From the photographer, A.J. Dunlap PhotographyThe pops of color, sparkly sequin and the happy couple that fill this wedding will make you smile from ear to ear. The bride wanted a glamorous and colorful wedding day, and she got just that! The ceremony was set on a theater style stage with a gold and silver paper chain background that was breathtaking. Match that with the mismatched floral bridesmaid gowns & flower crowns, and you had one gorgeous wedding.

With unique touches everywhere like the Polaroid place cards and brownie tower wedding cake, it was a day not soon forgotten!

Who says bridesmaids have to match, in dress style, color, or otherwise? We say to branch out and have them throw on a wide array of styles and colors that suit your wedding tastes. Prints are a huge trend right now for bridesmaids’ dresses and they’re such a hit. Oh and who says they have to be dresses? We love the new jumpsuit idea, too!

Modern and Linear Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

We see what stylists Taylor and Katherine from Aisle Planner mean when they laid eyes on the venue for this place: it’s the perfect spot for creativity to run rampant and theirs sure did with this trendy, contemporary wedding shoot by Cavin Elizabeth Photography. It’s full of razor-sharp lines, clean and bright colors, and just the slightest dash of romance from the florals by The Flower Shop; because we all need a dash of romance, right?

Modern and Linear Wedding Inspiration - photo by Cavin Elizabeth Photography http://ruffledblog.com/modern-and-linear-geometric-wedding-inspiration

From the stylists, Taylor Hollman and Katherine Oyer from Aisle Planner: Sharp geometrics, defined lines and a stark black-and-white palette come together to create modern wedding inspo like you’ve never seen in this perfectly styled shoot. The Romantik Studio made for a killer setting—their clean-slate studio provided stylists Tayler Hollman and Katherine Oyer of Aisle Planner the perfect blank canvas to play with, and Cavin of Cavin Elizabeth Photography captured their vision beautifully. Hollman and Oyer dressed the bride-for-the-day in an ethereal pleated piece from The Dress Theory that softened up the sharpness of the shoot perfectly, and really set the scene for what we can only describe as oh-so-chic modern romance.

Lucky To Be In Love created a marbled invitation suite as mesmerizing as they come, and Amy Samuel of The Flower Shop crafted wild, sprawling floral arrangements that managed to feel both sharp and soft. Greenery as bright as it was lush played perfectly against soft white roses—and both were complemented by pops of pink and dusty lavender ranunculi.

The oh-so dreamy florals sat pretty against a scene that was sharp and super defined. The tablescape embodied the definition of modern with its black-and-white palette brought to life through polygon plates and place mats boasting oh-so-pretty patterns. The gold chairs provided by Folklore Rentals where the show-stopping and added modern and masculine lines to the scene. Gold flatware and airy gold-wire chairs added a touch of metallic that really brought the shoot to life, and—our favorite part—Jenny Wenny Cakes handcrafted a two-tiered cake that encompassed the aesthetic of the entire scene in one (super tasty) treat. The stylish spread was complete with unbelievable poke plate provided by Waters Catering and Fine Foods—and blackberry mojitos we’re still washing it all down.

Bright Summery Arizona Wedding

Romantic Weddings

We are so all over this summery Arizona affair today from Amy & Jordan. We’re talking about refreshing flashes of pinks and aqua set against white and cream backgrounds to really make those colors stand out. Don’t even get us started on the modern backdrop; it’s utterly divine. ROAR Events designed and planned Alyssa and Spencer’s southwest wedding with such finesse and Sarah’s Garden Style followed it up with darling florals in the same fun and flirty shades, with a bit of orange to pack an added punch. Enjoy today’s fête; we certainly did!

geometric wedding ideas - photo by Amy & Jordan Photography http://ruffledblog.com/bright-summery-arizona-wedding

From the photographers, Amy & Jordan: Such a bright and summery wedding. A bold color palette of light pinks, fuchsia, aqua, and accents of gold. There were luscious succulents interspersed with pops of cream florals. They were married by a white brick fireplace with a mirrored mantel and sat in front of a geometric floral designed wall at their sweetheart table. It was a stunning day, from beginning to end.

Having a sweet note at each guest’s place setting is a touching gesture that all your loved ones will appreciate. Though it won’t take the place of a more elaborate thank you note you’ll send to them later on, it’s another way to show them your appreciation for attending and showing their support at one of the happiest moments of your life! Tip: print your thank you on the back of your wedding menu cards if you’re doing individual menus.

Modern Festive Austin Wedding

Modern Weddings

Photos by:

The Nichols

What more could you ask for from this beautiful wedding? Sloan and Jose had a ultra-trendy venue, The Nichols as photographers, and an afterparty/second reception to celebrate their New Years’ Eve fête all-in-one. Stems brought in vibrant colors to amp up the otherwise cool-weathered Austin wedding day, and with the festiveness of the day, Olive and Belle reined in all of the hip details. We would have loved an invite to this glorious event!

Austin weddings - photo by The Nichols http://ruffledblog.com/modern-festive-austin-wedding

From the bride, Sloan: Right from the get-go we knew we wanted something different than a typical “all in one shot” wedding. We also knew that we wanted our wedding day to evoke two different feelings: Ceremony, intimate. Reception, non-stop party.  Having lived together for three years before getting married, we really wanted to get into the heart of a wedding and marital union from a non-traditional, non-religious standpoint. We felt we could achieve this with a very intimate ceremony that felt both personal and communal. It was important to us that our family and guests knew how appreciated their roles in our lives to the point of our marriage meant and how much we look forward to having them in our futures.

Initially, we wanted a private ceremony one night followed by a reception the following night, but had a hard time wrapping our heads around how to not make guests feel excluded from the ceremony. When our ceremony venue, Union on Eighth had New Year’s Eve as one of their only remaining available dates in 2015, the idea of a split event on the same day was born. 

We decided to host a morning ceremony followed by brunch at The Union on Eighth and a reception later in the evening at Easy Tiger. This turned out to be the best decision we made for our wedding day. It allowed us to have time with our guests twice that day which made the day feel all the more special. It was also really fun for our guests. We got to hear stories about their adventures between the ceremony and reception, how they hung out with other guests between each event, and how it made their New Year’s Eve so unique.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Take your time and go with your gut. Jose and I had a long engagement, 2.5 years. Throughout that time we came up with a million ideas, viewed over 20 venues in multiple cities, etc. I’m so glad that we took our time, did our research, and didn’t jump into anything that didn’t feel right. Hire a coordinator, or if you can fit it into your budget, a planner. We ran into Sydney of Olive and Belle at a mutual friend’s wedding the April prior to our wedding. After a few months of thinking I could handle everything on my own I sent a desperate, ragged message to Sydney inquiring if she would be interested in working with us. Thank goodness she said yes! Our day wouldn’t have been as seamless or anywhere near wonderful if it weren’t for her.

Stand your ground, but also learn to pick your battles. One question I would repeat in my head during times of conflict or battling preferences was “If this happens/doesn’t happen at your wedding will you be devastated?” While that sounds a bit extreme, it allowed me to figure out what I absolutely had to have, what I could compromise on, and what I absolutely did not want. 

If possible, write your own ceremony. My godfather was a gem and officiated our wedding. He, his husband, Jose, and I collectively had a hand in the writing and planning of our ceremony. We chose to honor our family and friends with community vows and a ring warming passing. We also infused a loose take on a hand tying ceremony. It meant so much to us to be married on our terms, in a ceremony that was uniquely ours, and even more, that it was delivered by someone who means so much to us.

Wisconsin Bohemian Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Let’s start off by saying this: how dreamy does Wisconsin look at the cusp of fall? It’s surreal and with all of the greenery and lush landscapes roaming everywhere, it’s no wonder that Cherry Blossom Events concocted this vibrant, bohemian shoot. Laurels & Stars Photography documenting of the day was sublime, and speaking of sublime, the whimsy that Floral by Jamae packed into those wild floral arrangements is pure bliss for us.

boho chic weddings - photo by Laurels & Stars Photography http://ruffledblog.com/wisconsin-bohemian-wedding-ideas

From the event designer and stylist, Cherry Blossom Events: This vibrant and lush backyard inspiration will make your inner bohemian sing and awaken. The ethereal mix of light and vibrancy of color feels almost tropical, when in reality this was shot in a backyard in Wisconsin in September — further proof that brides and planners can create just about anything using what they have. This stunning project was planned and styled by Laura of Laurels and Stars Photography along with the amazing creative genius of Andrea and Sarah of Cherry Blossom Events.

Along with the help of many talented vendors, we were able to create an editorial piece that is just really beautiful to look at. Using unique and personal details like my Grandmother’s old clock, Andrea & Sarah transformed a simple barn table into a gorgeous lush piece of artwork. Andrea & Sarah also added touches of DIY, you’d never know the escort board and chargers were stained to compliment the color scheme of the floral arrangements. Furthermore, the desserts and naked cakes add to the intimate and bohemian feeling of this inspiration. And finally, the escort cards and invitations complete the feeling of vibrant and lush bohemian. The watercolor blues and handmade vibe coupled with the coppery calligraphy really finish the look. We were so pleased with the way this styled shoot came together, our hope is that it provides inspiration to others in our industry.

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!

Dallas wedding venues - photo by Sarah Kate Photographer http://ruffledblog.com/modern-minimalist-dallas-wedding

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!

Rae and Kurt hosted an intimate wedding ceremony at a private residence for all of their nearest and dearest, and the next day, invited more guests to a stunning garden wedding reception. This is a great way to keep a ceremony small while also enjoying a larger celebration for your big day.

Mid-Century Geometric Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

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

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

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

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

Cupid’s Arrow Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Jenna Henderson

Here’s a shoot featuring a lovely marriage between modern and industrial that we just can’t get enough of today. These colors have us all googly-eyed and feeling hopelessly romantic, while Jenna Henderson‘s chronicling of the day via photographs have us falling hard for this chic juxtaposition. Kennedy Occasions‘s lush floral arrangements do this shoot so much justice and they were the perfect, bright pop of pinks to accompany such a fun styled shoot.

valentine's day inspiration - photo by Jenna Henderson http://ruffledblog.com/cupids-arrow-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer and shoot designer, Jenna Henderson: We drew our inspiration from Cupid’s arrow, finding fun ways to sneak the arrow into our decor including an arrow through the bouquet, cake, and on the paper goods. We also loved the romance of the lush florals and rich colors, and to contrast the softness, we selected an urban industrial location and a chic Edison bulb lighting installment. The result is a romantic, intimate wedding full of industrial chic touches.

With such a fun lighting installment overhead, we totally welcome contrasting styles like this. Finding an industrial space for your wedding venue doesn’t mean that you have to go the modern route when it comes to style and design. Stick to your guns if you want to dress a contemporary space in sumptuous linens, dreamy centerpieces, and romantic elements. The huge plus about venues like this are that they tend to carry a very neutral color palette, so design it to your heart’s content.

Modern New York Wedding at 501 Union

Romantic Weddings

Today, we’re serving up another stunner and this time, we’re heading to New York to feature this modern and sophisticated beaut, all documented by Koman Photography. It’s got heaps of traditional wedding elements like breathtaking bouquets by Edelweiss Floral Atelier that you couldn’t even imagine and on-point sartorial choices by a trendy wedding party, but 501 Union‘s vintage look adds in a dash of elegance to this wedding.

gold balloons - photo by Koman Photography http://ruffledblog.com/modern-new-york-wedding-at-501-union

From the bride, Joohee: Pablo and I both knew we wanted to keep our wedding close to our home, friends, and family in New York City. After some brief web surfing, I came across 501 Union in Brooklyn, and immediately upon viewing pictures, I knew in my heart that this was the perfect place for us. A week later, we signed for the venue at first sight. Having a background in art, in my eyes, the modern feel of the venue, the black and white walls, and the chic art deco wallpapers provided the ultimate canvas to host any type of wedding. We set our date for late September, and while fall in New York is beautiful, our summers seemingly feel shorter every year. Trying to extend summer a little longer, we decided on a romantic theme with pink and metallic colors, dreamy tulle, and plenty of pink flowers to lighten up and contrast the venue. The weather on our wedding day ended up amazing, so it actually felt like a perfect summer day.

My family owns a bakery called the Runcible Spoon Bakery, and after receiving a degree in art, I decided to take my artistic talents and apply them to the family business. Over the years, while learning to manage the business and to bake, I also taught myself how to decorate cakes. It quickly became obvious that I would make my own wedding cake. Eventually, I also decided to cater all of the desserts for our wedding by creating an entire dessert bar. I must admit, baking hundreds of macarons, cake pops, and hand decorated cookies, on top of making a wedding cake and planning a wedding, was truly a labor of love.

Our entire day was magical – everything went exactly the way we had envisioned and hoped for the year leading up to it. The saddest part of the day was when it was all over. All of the planning, stressing, and, in my case, baking was so worth it in the end. After the day just flew by and our guests were leaving, I remember turning to Pablo and saying, “Aw – let’s do that again.” It was a good thing we planned an after party! When it came to picking vendors, we were blessed to have found a team with a creative vision that we could place all our trust in to capture our day. Pablo and I still constantly find ourselves looking through our wedding photos, because even though the day has gone, those pictures and video still live on and remind us of the best day of our lives – the end of our beginning.

Stylish Greenpoint Loft Wedding

Modern Weddings

Seeing weddings break the mold and step outside of the box is a lovely and welcome thing. When we get served up a dish of unique wedding details with a stunning couple to boot, it reinvigorates us. Abby and Jeremy not only brought the industrial style to their Brooklyn wedding; they incorporated one-of-a-kind wedding details and florals by Wyld that were snapped by Shannon and Elena for Amber Gress Photography that we absolutely adore.

modern wedding fashion - photos by Shannon Roddy and Elena Mudd for Amber Gress Photography http://ruffledblog.com/stylish-greenpoint-loft-wedding

From the bride, Abby: We knew that we wanted to get married in Brooklyn (where we met), but we wanted an unconventional event space. Something that felt like our experience of Brooklyn—artsy, approachable, maybe even a little gritty. When we stepped into The Greenpoint Loft we fell in love instantly. It was the perfect mix of urban and industrial with huge potential and freedom for anything we wanted to create. In all honesty, it just felt like a really cool yet unpretentious place where we could party hard with all our best buds.

Kayla Snell

Oh this inspiration is a must to take a gander at. When you peruse through the photos, you’ll find an unparalleled shoot of bright colors, muted tones, elegantly-made blooms by Davy Gray, along with a Victorian-esque bride and a mod groom. If you ever wondered what a moody and ethereal wedding would look like with hints of modernity, this styled shoot collaboration by Kayla Snell and Bird Dog Wedding is it.

From the event designers, Bird Dog Wedding: Tucked away in East Austin, between local coffee shops and off-beat food trucks, sits a hidden, idyllic space called 1102 East. The venue features a cozy bungalow and modern industrial details with a bohemian flair throughout. After stumbling upon it one Saturday afternoon, we knew it was the perfect place for our midcentury modern bohemian styled shoot.

Photographer Kayla Snell and I teamed up to create a colorful, fun wedding with the hope of inspiring modern, bohemian brides who are currently planning weddings for this fall. Brightly colored, hand-painted stationery details complemented a bold, black envelope designed by Goldie Design Co. Our bride Dagny Hines was all dolled up with a loose updo from Kristi Drake and a moody makeup look created by Lauren Davis at Hint of Shimmer. Valerie Wolf at Davy Gray created the perfect floral hairpiece that Dagny could easily wear all night long. Dagny wore an ethereal, silk dress from Saint Isabel that featured beaded and lace sleeves and a gorgeous open back. Groom Casey Vanderstoep was dressed to the nines in a navy suit and striped shirt and tie from ByGeorge Austin. His casual, comfortable suit is a must-have for a low key Austin wedding.

We’ve got a treat for everyone today, literally and figuratively! It starts off with this beyond-beautiful bridal inspiration shoot from Audra Wrisley Photography with styling by Jean Hilpert of Magnolia Lane Creative and floral arrangements designed by Studio DBI. It features the color lavender in a gauzy, muted light matched up with cool-tone grays and a mix of neutral and warm greens. What’s most adorable here is that fun and whimsical tulle skirt separate that perfectly matches the hue of the easy-to-create lavender cocktail and what’s even better is that the recipe to this refreshing cocktail is below!

Inspired by the amazing hand-made backdrop by Jean Hilpert, our shoot revolves around a palette of purples, grays and greens to create a soothing yet imaginative space. Created by hand dying coffee filters, the ombré purple colors in the backdrop set the stage for this bridal inspiration shoot, and led the way to a world of majestic creativity. The wardrobe was selected with simple silhouettes and colors, so as not to compete with the backdrop. A custom gray tulle skirt was created for the occasion, and paired with a simple bralette top. Silver Betsey Johnson heels were the perfect glamorous accent!

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

As a graphic designer, I believe that great graphic design is in the details {read: spending lots of time at the computer looking at pixels.} If you dont know what a pixel is- congratulations- because that’s why graphic designer types exist! {to save your eyesight} Really, though-design is more than matching colors and picking pretty fonts {but I do have major love for fonts} – it’s about conveying your message to the world with a swirl, a flourish, a dot, a pattern- whatever it takes to creatively encompass your clients vision and send that vision out into the world with impact.

That’s what I try to do. EMPHASIS on TRY. I adore designing and am currently the owner of NOTEDOCCASIONS.COM , an online site catering to everyone who loves having a party. And who doesn’t because as I see it, life’s a party!

Moody Black and White Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Let’s just say we’ve never seen a black and white wedding setting we didn’t like. This one, captured by Abigail Bobo Photography and styled by Sage Nines Event Production is no exception. They took a moody approach with this classic color duo and the results are absolutely scrumptious.

From the event and floral designer, Sage Nines Event Production: The inspiration behind this shoot came from a favorite black and ivory tapestry that I found. I love that black is making such a comeback in weddings, but wanted to feature it in an edgy and less formal setting than I have typically seen it. Our bride and groom models, Brittainy and Brandon, are married in real life but had eloped to Mexico, so it was a perfect opportunity for them to get dressed up again and enjoy having Abigail Bobo capture some more sweet images of them! Brittainy wore a stunning two piece dress by Bo and Luca from The Dress Theory, which was a perfect blend of elegance and edge. We dressed the maids in all black, which gave me the liberty to go in any direction with the florals. I literally had no preconceived notions about a color palette and just went with what looked amazing at the wholesaler that week, which turned out to be white anemones with black centers, orange ranunculus, and coral charm peonies.

Fuchsia Industrial Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

What do you get when you combine industrial style with a prominent fuchsia palette? An inspiration shoot from Marisa Belle Photography that has us amazed. After getting inspired from a hardware store trip, Marisa thought of an idea of printing wedding invitations on sheet metal, and the rest is history. The entire team pulled together contrasting ideas of vintage and modern through style and lush flowers from The Wildflower AZ, crafting a shoot that will feed your whimsical-loving side while also breathing life into your minimalistic and contemporary side!

From the photographer, Marisa Belle Photography: This shoot was inspired during a trip to Home Depot of all places. I was looking for new knobs for my cabinets and wandered into the sheet metal section of the store. I was attracted to the dark, oily color of the sheet metal and wondered, “What would a wedding invitation look like on sheet metal?” I got with my favorite calligrapher Jenna Underwood of Paper and Posies Designs and she created the stunning invitation suite incorporating a leather envelope, escort cards, and copper napkin rings and this shoot was born!

Classic Modern Garden Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Charleston is quite known for its garden glamour. It’s no surprise that when A.Caldwell Events decided to dream up a shoot, it would be centered around clean lines, elegant blooms and greenery by Tiger Lily Weddings, and modern tablescapes. Rachel Red Photography captured the unfolding loveliness from the shoot and boy do I adore it. The bright white interior canvas of Gadsden House is ideal for all of the dainty pops of color in this shoot and trust me, once you see how effortlessly the colors blend together, you’ll love it, too.

Modern Covered Bridge Wedding

Modern Weddings

When you get the chance to get married at a unique venue, you definitely grab the bull by its horns. Take a look at this beautiful wedding photographed by Kimie Grace Photography! Choosing to let the beauty of the venue shine through on its own, Ashley and Braydan added fine touches of string lights, a floral arrangement suspended over the ceremony altar site, and super glam reception, full of beautiful blooms designed by Cambray Rose Florist.

From the bride, Ashley: Ashley and Braydan Young were married on the last three-level covered bridge in the U.S. under a hanging floral arrangement and above a flowing creek. Before the ceremony, refreshments from the bride and groom’s favorite local tea shop were served on the bridge, where guests enjoyed views of the California Butte Mountains. When the curtains opened for Ashley to walk down the aisle, a cappella singers, who sat interspersed with the guests, broke into “One Fine Day” taking the guests by surprise and filling the bridge with the sounds of one of the couple’s favorite songs. Guests used the handmade confetti throwers attached to their wedding programs to shower the newlyweds as they made their way back up the aisle as husband and wife.

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!

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.

Lake House Bridal Inspiration

Wedding Design

We at Ruffled are unabashedly obsessed over gorgeous floral design (tag us #ruffledblooms with your dream-like florals!) and bridal story captured by Alexandra Elise Photography is one to gawk over and over. First, it’s set in a lake house and The Rowland House has such a neutral palette for this eclectic shoot to shine bright. The lake house creates such a great backdrop that contrasts just right to make the colors and itself stand out. Second, all of the colors are so vibrant and rich. The blending of the blues, greens, hints of reds and oranges were all done so effortlessly. And last but not least, would you take a look at the bloom styling by Stacy K Floral?

From the photographer, Alexandra Elise Photography: I recently photographed a styled bridal shoot at The Rowland House which is one of the Inns of Aurora. This styled shoot was a wonderful collaboration where each vendor truly drew inspiration from the gorgeous lake house. The Rowland House is filled with colorful and eclectic design pieces which you can directly see featured in the bouquet and paper goods. The eclectic theme carries through the unique tablescape, featuring a wide variety of citrus fruit. The aroma of the decor itself was amazing! We styled the shoot around simplistic, modern bridal looks because the house and the florals truly spoke for themselves.

Modern Opera House Wedding Inspiration

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

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

Stylish Manhattan Wedding on a Rooftop

Modern Weddings

Photos by:

Amber Gress

With a bright white room like 620 Loft and Garden as your backdrop, the possibilities are endless for your wedding. That’s exactly what Mary Alex and Keith dreamed up when they decided do say their I Do’s in Manhattan. Photographed by the talented Amber Gress, the duo kept their decor to sleek and simple modernity with some rustic elements tied in. Like those beautiful box planters brimming with ivory hydrangeas with succulents and pink rose buds nestled in or those butterfly escort cards. So sweet!

From the photographer, Amber Gress: Keith and Mary Alex live in Georgia, but knew they wanted to have a NYC wedding. Mary Alex is originally from Georgia, while Keith is from NYC, so they share a love of the big apple. They couldn’t have picked a more classically NYC venue than 620 Loft and Garden, right in the heart of it all. We made sure to make time for us to shoot at multiple locations, so we could capture an overview of them in the city. As you can see they are a gorgeous and super stylish couple, and we’re so excited to share this with you!
