Brilliant Wedding Design Inspired by Paper Goods

We couldn’t agree more with Frances of Prema Style when she said “Honing in on the style that resonates for you and your fiance (and the type of event right for you both) helps tell your story in an authentic and harmonious way.” This styled shoot was put together to showcase three unique styles inspired by various wedding invitation suites and stationery, and each of the looks is a positively stunning celebration of its own theme. Thank you Megan W Photography for your beautiful images!

From the stylist, Frances Harjeet of Prema Style: Your wedding is an opportunity to share your story with those that you love in a beautiful and meaningful way. Personalization is in the details. Honing in on the style that resonates for you and your fiance (and the type of event right for you both) helps tell your story in an authentic and harmonious way. In this editorial, we’ve chosen three distinct paper suites to style with corresponding details to show how you can connect your wedding style throughout the planning process and celebration. Your paper goods set the tone for your guests, since receiving a Save the Date or Invitation will be their initial introduction to your event. We encourage couples to be creative in the manner they carry the aesthetic of the paper goods into the styling for their big day.

Stunning Floral: Bright and bold, this watercolor invitation suite is all sorts of fun. We imagine this wedding with a poppy Palm Springs vibe with MidMod accents. Warm and sunny, these paper goods call for flirty fashion, cheerful pink blooms and citrus-infused cocktails. An assortment of sweet confections, petit fours and tartelettes of raspberry and pistachio offer a delightful alternative to the standard wedding cake. Colorful vintage stamps and personalized stickers add even more charm to this spunky and stylish wedding.

Marbled Chic: This paper suite is classic and formal, perfect for a Black-Tie wedding for two very chic grooms. We chose timeless florals; freesia and calla lilies in a monochromatic palette. Elegant sterling silver pieces for the table-scape, tall white tapered candles, rich ivory lines with crisp black accents further establish the aesthetic. Inspired by the marbled paper backing on the invitation, we incorporated details using this refined marbled look into other aspects of the styling. This is a wedding perfectly suited for silk bow-ties, mother of pearl cufflinks, decadent chocolate cake, champagne towers, a big band playing jazz favorites, and frolicking in fountains after midnight.

Fairytale Romance: Just like an 18th century painting in a carved gilded frame, this suite transports us to another time and place. Magical and dreamy, we were swept away by the romantic feel of this trifold invitation. Soft pastel florals, antiqued gold and silver tarnished with verdigris, lush ferns and draping vines, the elements for this set are natural, delicate and rich with stories. A hand-painted cake, inspired by the painterly aesthetic of the invitation is draped with demure greenery and the sweetest little blooms of “Love-in-a-Mist.” With this styling, our bride, adorned in fine Belgian lace and sparkling diamonds, steps straight out of a fairytale book into her real life romance.

Georgia Summer Southern Wedding Inspiration

Blue Label, Wedding Design

Any time I get to see a bit of rose gold, I immediately fall in love. Today’s shoot takes classic southern wedding inspiration and gives it a bit of a whimsical approach, taking on cool spring colors and lots of lush floral design. The team of Alyssa Alig Photography, Brie Owens Events, and Bud and Bloom did some great work here!

From the photographer, Alyssa Alig: The estate is the embodiment of Southern class and charm. This shoot features rich golds and blush tones. The rings were created with rose gold, the flowers were composed of garden roses, ranunculus, and seeded eucalyptus. We were inspired by both classic elements and a touch of whimsy. The two marry well with the stunning setting in the fields of the Georgia landscape.

We adore the newly wedded romance they brought to the shoot, which added to the rich heritage of the South. “I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where, / I love you simply, without problems or pride: / I love you in this way because I don’t know any other way of loving.” – Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

Beach Destination Wedding in Tulum

Beach Weddings

If there’s one thing beach weddings deserve, it’s a heavy dose of bright colors. That’s exactly what Laura and Jason did for their destination wedding in Tulum, Mexico, and they ended up with a vibrant and personalized day – exactly as they had envisioned. Ariel Renae Photography was the perfect choice to take control behind the camera, as these images will attest!

From the bride, Laura: We wanted a stress-free environment to enjoy the time with each other and all of our loved ones that had traveled so far to be with us. We wanted the wedding to feel personalized and vibrant – a true celebration of where we’ve been as a couple and a reflection on the way in which we chose to live our lives. We wanted everybody to mingle and spend real time getting to know one another, which is why we loved having multiple days with everybody who came down to Tulum.

The vibrant, bright colors of Mexico and the tropical waters of Tulum were a source of inspiration. We steered clear of stereotypical “tropical beach” colors like beige and pastels and embraced the fully saturated palette of Mexico. Purple, navy, bright pink, turquoise, and orange played a big part. The color palette was really defined first in our website, which we used as a place to establish a look and feel that we carried through the whole wedding. We stayed true to this look and feel this through our DIY projects and kept everything in mind as we made decisions on the necessary rentals, etc.

Doing a destination wedding can be challenging since you can often be so disconnected from the location and many of the people that are involved in making your wedding come together. Since we weren’t able to interact with the location or people involved on a regular basis, we wanted to find a way to control what we could in order to make sure the experience still felt very personalized and hand-touched. The DIY projects became a way that we could put our stamp on a wedding where so many things were just out of our control. It allowed us to focus on the things that we really enjoyed and not stress about the less-controllable elements, while creating an experience for us and our guests that felt very true to who we are and personalized in a really special way. We found, in the end, that no one commented on the chairs, napkins, or plates (rentals that we opted not to go overboard on) but instead we found people drawn to, and remembering, the small touches that we put in made by our hand. That was, and is still, really rewarding.

As for DIY, we brought rocks from the Brooklyn Bridge Park in our home borough, hand-painted numbers on them and used them as our table numbers, we designed, printed and hand-ripped the menus, we designed notecards on the Mexican loteria bingo cards for people to leave us words of wisdom/advice during the reception. We had Ahau Tulum make cornhole sets for our wedding. Cornhole is a game that we play in Indiana and played a lot at college, so knew that our friends and family would find this the perfect beach game. We had this out at our cocktail hour and into the evening on our wedding and were also able to use the cornhole set throughout our week on the beach with all of our friends and family following the wedding day. We also had a “bell”-shaped piñata made, which referenced our wedding tag “JLWeddingBell” and also my grandmother’s collection of bells given to her by grandchildren and family/friends over the years. They couldn’t make it to the wedding, so this was our nod to them.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? It’s very helpful to work with someone (a wedding planner) that understands your vision and that you trust to accomplish what you want without you having to hand-hold each little thing. This is especially true for a destination wedding where you just can’t be there to meet with people and plan things in a way you might be able to if you were married where you live. Allowing this person to handle the things that you can’t control or don’t enjoy doing as much will allow you to focus on the elements that you can control and enjoy doing and let the rest of it go. For us, this meant thinking a lot about the little hand-touched details and the things that made our guests feel truly welcomed and excited to experience this with us but also with each other. I think it’s also important to have the wedding be a reflection of you as a couple – taking into account the things that make each person tick. I was lucky because I have a creative and artistic husband who enjoys doing projects, so we were able to do a lot of things together. It’s also important to divide and conquer for certain things – for example, I let Jason choose much of the music because he really enjoys that, while I dealt with much of the budget and logistic elements. Weddings can be expensive so think about what really matters to you and make choices that prioritize those things. Don’t get carried away worrying about every little thing because it all adds up quickly.

A Fun Food Truck Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Majesta Patterson

I’ll admit it; I used to think it would be difficult to make a food truck wedding elegant. Well no more, because this backyard California wedding from Majesta Patterson has completely proven me wrong! Cole and Caitlin’s wedding day was full of good eats, lovely floral design, and bistro string lights. Prepare to be blown away by this endlessly sophisticated wedding:

From the bride, Caitlin: We wanted our wedding to be super laid back and fun for everyone involved; we saw it as a great opportunity to bring family and friends together and have an amazing evening making memories. It was so great to have the people that we love and cherish there to celebrate with us, and we wanted that to be the focus and not get hung up on too many little details. We wanted everyone to feel relaxed, have some great food, dance to some awesome music, and just enjoy spending time with loved ones.

My wedding could probably be best described as simple and classic, with vintage elements, and a soft color palette with the occasional pops of color (brought in largely by the flowers used in the bouquets and on the tables). Everything felt light and soft with just the right amount of contrast. There were several DIY projects, including the menus, table numbers, the “ribbon wall,” escort cards and the display they were attached to, bride and groom chair backs, cake topper, ring box, wooden gate with bride and groom’s initials, stands for the vintage windows displayed at the altar and behind the sweetheart table, the game of “life-sized Jenga,” hangers for the bride’s/bridesmaids’ dresses, and several pieces of refinished vintage furniture. The wedding planner along with my mom and dad totally rocked at all of these DIY projects!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? My best advice for couples would be to relax and be adaptable when planning your wedding—especially if you are doing it long distance, which is becoming more and more common these days. If you would have asked me a few years ago how I expected my wedding planning to go, I would’ve said, “I don’t need a wedding planner, I can totally do everything myself.” Little did I know that I would be planning a wedding long distance, and wouldn’t have the freedom to fly back and forth between Omaha and the Bay Area to get my hands dirty in all the little details. I was able come up with a vision for the big day, but needed to leave the execution in my mom’s and my wedding planner’s hands (yes, I did get a wedding planner after all, and she was a huge blessing to us). I learned through the process that it’s okay to trust your vision to other people—no, I didn’t get to do every DIY project myself, and I didn’t get to see everything first hand before the big day, but guess what? I had a beautiful wedding and reception, the planning process wasn’t stressful, and the most important part was that I got to marry my best friend that day—that’s all that ultimately matters for any bride or groom.

From the photographer, Majesta Patterson: Marrying tradition with modern design, Cole and Caitlin held a sweet, rustic wedding at the Rengstorff House in Mountain View. Planning all the way from Nebraska, they carefully chose the perfect details and vendors – from their food truck spread to their gorgeous tablescapes. I love that Caitlin chose to add pops of color in her bouquets while keeping the bridesmaid dresses mismatched and neutral! Cole adorned a classic navy blue suit, my absolute favorite suit color of the season. Let’s just talk about their tablescapes for a second – one of my favorite details from their wedding! Like all good things, the layers to their table created a perfect balance to create a homey and inviting feel to their reception. With custom menu’s nailed to wood blocks and mismatched glass vases to hold their delicate wild flowers. Napkins were wrapped and placed in cute buckets to carry the food truck theme, placed on a natural wood board atop their light blue table runners. And lastly, the overhead bistro lighting created a warm environment for their guests to dine under. It truly was a charming celebration!

Dramatic Jewel Toned Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Sweet Poppy Studios

There’s something so opulent about deep jewel tones, and we love that the creative team of Sweet Poppy Studios, Sealed With A Kiss Events, and Max Gill Designs combined this palette with bohemian styling for today’s styled shoot. The invitations and paper goods pair perfectly with the entire aesthetic, and the votive candles sprinkled along the tabletop? Perfection.

From the photographer, Sweet Poppy Studios: It’s no secret that Campovida is one of the most gorgeous venues in northern California and when Lara from Sealed with a Kiss Events and I received the opportunity to do an inspiration shoot there we jumped at the opportunity. We called a few of our all time favorite vendors (Max Gill on florals – can you say WOW?!) and pulled from a few resources we have been absolutely loving these days – Free People and West Elm. What Lara put together for me to capture was absolutely breathtaking and a shoot that will always be at the very top of my favorite list!

From the event designer, Lara of Sealed With A Kiss Events: I wanted to do something really unique and different, out of the box. I used inspiration from one of my favorite stores, West Elm, and combined it with unique elements from another favorite, Free People. Since I am usually designing a lot of weddings with light colors, I switched it up and did a combination of black, a deep blackberry color, amber, and gold. One of my all-time favorite florists, Max Gill, created a whimsical design for the bouquet and centerpieces that really brought the pieces from the table together. To highlight the funky tableware elements from West Elm, Brylo Studio created custom menus and place cards with the organic Free People theme in mind. Our lovely bride wore two different long white Free People dresses and had hair and makeup by the amazing Carrie Aldous. Carleigh Fager, from Sweet Poppy Studios, was my natural choice for a photographer as each shot tells part of the story of a couple as well as the day. Although this shoot is quite different from what I normally design, I love how it came together and expresses a sort of unique and funny style aesthetic.

Modern Wedding Tribute to Elvis and Priscilla Presley

Wedding Design

Photos by:

From SF with Love

As lovers of all things vintage, how could we possibly resist this styled shoot from From SF with Love and Lily Spruce? Every bit is inspired by the retro sensibilities of early rock ‘n’ roll, but updated with modern decor accents and a dedication to keeping everything fresh and local. The shoot is brimming with great party ideas anyone can achieve, so let’s take a look!

From the planner/stylist, Genevieve Roja of Lily Spruce and the photographer/stylist, Laurie Wilson of From SF with Love: For this photo shoot, we were inspired by Elvis and Priscilla Presley, since Geraldine and Johnny are musicians and love all things vintage. We wanted to make the shoot relatable to modern couples—both vintage and down-to-earth, and bring that era into the now with special touches and details that would feel organic in our Bay Area backyard. The venue, Shelldance Orchid Gardens, is in a sweet coastal town called Pacifica, just south of San Francisco along Highway 1.

We gathered some of our favorite vintage-inspired vendors in the San Francisco Bay Area who share a similar sense of style. It felt magical to work with these talented vendors, and our chemistry was apparent in the way things organically came together—including the polka dot and green tone themes that developed naturally. Staying true to our San Francisco roots, all of the vendors shared a value to keep things local—even the flowers and food ingredients were sourced locally.

Vintage elements were incorporated throughout the shoot, from the big things like the vintage BMW and classic Honda motorcycle, to the small details like the heirloom china and glassware, and the wedded lovebirds’ jewelry. For the love of music, we used a classic record player and made confetti out of vintage music sheets.

Puppy Wedding Styled Shoot

Wedding Design

We’ve got a very special treat for you all today, and it comes in the form of a collaboration by Danfredo Photos + Films, Confetti & Co., and Kate Farley Design. Danni of Danfredo films imagined the nuptials of her two sweet pups, and built an entire styled shoot around her vision for their wedding day. To say the result is anything less than brilliant would be selling it short, but judge for yourselves!

From the photographer, Danni of Danfredo Photos + Films: My husband, Wilfredo, and I are both Philadelphia-based photographers and videographers (he’s my regular second shooter or, if a couple books us for both photo and video, he’s the primary videographer). Since we’re relatively new to the area, we thought it would be fun to collaborate with local vendors on a styled shoot – our first one ever. One night (over wine), I joked that we should use our dogs, Hudson and Chelsea (rescue pups from Little Paws Dachshund Rescue), as the models for our shoot. We laughed it off, but I knew we were on to something.

Over the past few months, I’ve become friends with Sara Murray at Confetti & Co. I approached her about the possibility of helping me put together a styled shoot featuring our puppies instead of people. She loved the idea and even volunteered her Frenchie, Millie, to be Chelsea’s maid of honor. Sara had worked a lot with Kate Farley and Ashley Wrenn-Peterson in the past and suggested I pitch the idea to them – they loved it, too. I’ve known the baker, Brooke Saylor, since her wedding day (I was the second shooter for her own wedding which was featured on Ruffled). They, too, recently moved to Philadelphia from NYC and we’ve become really close friends with her and her husband. We’ve also become friends with Claire Hudson, a pet portrait artist (she painted a watercolor logo for the happy couple and well as proper oil paint portraits of them) and Jackie Starker, who owns a local pet store. Claire’s golden doodle, Stamps, accepted the invitation to be Hudson’s best man. Together, all of us started planning Hudson and Chelsea’s industrial chic wedding. All together, we invited nine of Hudson and Chelsea’s friends to play parts in their wedding. For decor, we approached West Elm Philadelphia about donating some pieces for us to use for the shoot and they totally agreed! We built the set in the morning and shot all of our details before having the dogs show up at the venue.

From the stylist, Sara of Confetti & Co.: In styling this shoot, we really wanted to keep everything miniature! The biggest piece of styling for dogs was finding cute items that worked with the scale of everything. The adorable West Elm blue patterned salad plates (used as doggy dinner plates) were the jump off point. From there we softened the palette with some mints and then added a touch more vibrancy with pops of pinks and plums within the flowers and added more miniature details, like coasters for dog salad plates and votives as dog drinking glasses. It was fun working at a different scale!

From the florist, Kate of Kate Farley Design: Danni of Danfredo Photo + Films and Sara of confetti and co. approached me with the project idea and being a pup lover, they had me hooked before I could even finish reading the email. They gave me a color palette to work with consisting of soft peachy pinks, deep, romantic plums, sage greens and touches of grey. My color loving mind was racing with ideas for flower selections. I ended up choosing to work with the super romantic David Austin Juliet roses, pink celosia, pale pink astilbe, white lisianthus for some added lightness to the rich plum scabiosa. We also threw in some scabiosa pods for some added texture along with some inky viburnum berries to give the centerpiece a beautiful balance of light and dark.

From the stationer, Ashley of hello, bird.: My starting point for the paper for the shoot was the “couple” themselves. I wanted the invitation to be long and narrow, like Hudson and Chelsea. We had decided on a great color palette, and after seeing the portrait from Pennys & Stamps, I knew I wanted to pick up the mint in the writing. That long and narrow shape was carried through to the place cards and favor tags. The cake topper was circular to be a little more classic and cohesive with their gorgeous cake by Saylormade.

From the baker, Brooke of Saylormade: In my wedding cake business, I focus on making goodies that taste as delightful as they look, and I wanted these doggie treats to be no exception! I packed the cake full of good-for-you ingredients like carrots, peanut butter & wheat germ. But my favorite were definitely the peanut butter krispies with carob ganache, which is like fake chocolate! They loved it!

Romantic Philadelphia Wedding

Elegant Weddings

One look at the incredible floral designs from 7Textures, and you’re bound to fall in love. Bride Rose mixed the soft aesthetic of the flowers with the rich and classic architecture of Philadelphia’s College of Physicians for a look that kept us guessing and simultaneously smitten. Thank you Redfield Photography for sharing your images!

From the bride, Rose: The great architecture and rich finishes of our venue were definitely a source of inspiration and served as a wonderful backdrop for our event. We aimed for a classic and romantic feel, with lots of whimsy and fun. We tried to always think about our guests during the planning process, and made sure to never take ourselves or the event too seriously.

Justin and I took about 10 minutes to ourselves right after the ceremony. We admired our new jewelry and had some quiet time to relax and really take everything in before heading out to all of our friends, family, and the awesome party awaiting us. For the most part, we trusted in our great vendors to execute our vision, but we couldn’t let the day go by without having our hand in a few DIY projects. I designed the printed goods (menus, invitations, save the dates, programs), and tapped my sister’s incredible talents for illustration duties. Justin and I designed our wedding website and he did the dirty work writing the code to bring it to life.

We’re making our way towards the cooler weather of fall, and when we see shoots like this one from Bret Cole, Jan Hatch & Gayle Jarrett of California Vintage Rentals + Design, and Wanda’s Flower Shop, we can’t help but get even more excited to brew up some hot cocoa and pull out our cushy sweaters. Some inspiring floral design, a drool-worthy wedding cake, and a Monique Lhuillier gown all add up to pure wedding magic here!

From the photographer, Bret Cole: The stylist (Jan Hatch) and I wanted to come up with a look that was clean, but unstructured. Organic, but with touches of rustic elegance that fits Tahoe. We chose a lot of plants that are native to the Tahoe area to include in the floral arrangements, and the sleek lines and warm woods of our mid-century modern furniture flowed well with the Resort’s style. When I pitched it to the marketing team at Squaw Creek, they loved it. I chose the models and vendors who joined us, and they deserve big props. I think they did an amazing job!

All White Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

What color goes hand in hand with weddings more than white? A dream team of vendors including Paola Colleoni Photography, Princess Wedding, and Il Profumo dei Fiori put together a styled wedding shoot based solely around the shade, with the only variations coming through in the form of floral design. How beautiful is the result?

all white wedding inspiration - photo by Paola Colleoni Photography http://ruffledblog.com/all-white-wedding-inspiration

From the stylist, Sara of Princess Wedding: The main theme behind this shoot is the idea of a dreamy and timeless bride, placed in a setting where all the elements could create a juxtaposition between warm and cold. The white elements, the glasses, the bottles, the rain and the ceramics create a dreamy and static atmosphere, warmed up by the textiles, the fabrics and the flowers. The things the whole team loved the most about this photoshoot have been the femininity and the elegance which Laura, the model, totally embodied with her young, melancholic feel and her sensual and feminine shapes.

Revolution Hall Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

Heidi Benjamin

What better way is there to celebrate your love than by filling your wedding day with nods to all the things you and your S.O. love? In Rachel and Jan’s case, a celebration filled with retro touches and nods to vinyl collecting was in order, with no shortage of other handcrafted details all captured by the lovely Heidi Benjamin.

Revolution Hall wedding - photo by Heidi Benjamin http://ruffledblog.com/revolution-hall-wedding

From the bride, Rachel: Like so many, we wanted it to be a reflection of us. Which means lots of fun, tons of color, great food and equally great music in a not-too-stuffy, throwback setting. Our wedding was fun, bright, eclectic, and personal with tons of vintage details. Our theme was loosely tied to the idea of a “True Love Tour” because we actually had two celebrations and wanted a clever way to tie them into the invitations. There was a more involved celebration where we grew up in New York, and then a smaller reception with our friends where we now live in Denver after our honeymoon. I work in the music industry and my husband and I are both big fans of live music (and vinyl collecting) so we liked the idea of making a musical element a cornerstone of the setting. That theme was reflected in the paper goods, table numbers and the music itself. My husband is a brewmaster, so our venue choice of a concert hall attached to a brewery in the city we met was an easy one. The color scheme was largely mint, peach, yellow and some metallic accents, which we blew over the top with the flower wall.

Flower recipe: My bouquet was DIY from vintage brooches, while my bridesmaids (and Jan’s brideslady) carried monochromatic white bouquets made of mostly peonies, hydrangeas, mini roses and carnations with some greenery and other brooch accents. All of the handheld arrangements were wrapped in chambray from one of my late grandfather’s old work shirts. Table arrangements were mostly carnation, mini roses, baby’s breath and alstroemeria.

As far as DIY was concerned, the 8′ x 10′ flower wall was the largest, most collaborative DIY project. I ordered loads of tissue paper online and had my family and friends fold a bunch at my bridal shower in lieu of a game, which was way more fun! We spent the entire day before the wedding styling the wall. The brooch bouquet was the other time consuming project I had my heart set on. A lot of the brooches were provided by both sides of our family, which made it that much more special. It was well worth every broken nail! My hairpiece, the record-based/tiered dessert stands for donuts and the table numbers were also DIY, as were the flower arrangements. All of the flowers were in vintage glassware I collected at thrift stores and garage sales on trips home to New York, as well as while in Colorado; I carried a ton of glasses back with me for the wedding in my luggage.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Oh man, I hope you’re remembering to have fun! Having realistic expectations about the day, working with people you trust, delegating tasks, asking for help, and not comparing yourself too much to what’s hot on Pinterest are all key points. Really, this is going to be the best day of your lives, so keep that in mind with every step and you will make decisions that are the best for you both.

Del Mar Powerhouse Wedding

Modern Weddings

I’m constantly wowed by how much influence a color palette has over the feeling of a wedding day, and the bright and pastel tones in Jen and Kombiz’s wedding definitely exudes the perfect relaxed, beach-y vibe to go with their California wedding. Jenny Minns of Luxe Events and Root 75 worked their magic with design and flowers, while She Wanders Photography captured it all for us to share!

From the photographer, Suzanne of She Wanders Photography: Jen and Kombiz are a power-couple who crafted an event as bright and sweet as they are. Despite meeting in New York City and living in D.C., they chose to have a destination wedding at the place they fell in love: San Diego, CA. These two do-gooders (she in cancer research, he in education) strove to create a wedding that combined their love of food and drink, simplicity and intimacy.

Their palette consisted of sherbert colors -peach, yellow, mint, and coral with the bride’s and groom’s parties dressed in gray. The ceremony was officiated by a family friend, and was full of laughter and tears. Hanging picture frames were woven with flowers against the beautiful Pacific Ocean and provided the perfect backdrop for such a special occasion.

For the reception, their mixologist friends created custom drinks, including the Jen Daisy. The linens and napkins were made by Kombiz’s mother with white, mint, and gray fabrics. Guests relaxed in a gazebo lounge area with benches, throw pillows, and bistro lights while music played. It provided the perfect relaxed atmosphere for casual conversation among members of a new, unified family.

In addition to taking home their beloved, Jen and Kombiz planned to have mementos of their special day. Every wedding guest was asked to sign a poster of their vows, which will hang in their home as a reminder of their everlasting love. Brightly Designed created a beautiful poster not unlike a ketubah. And each year on their anniversary, Jen and Kombiz will open their anniversary wine box and enjoy the concealed bottle and love letters inside. The box is a repurposed jewelry box made by Jen’s late grandfather. Jen and Kombiz created a colorful, joyous day for all their guests to enjoy.

Adventurous Historic Cedarwood Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

Q Avenue Photo

Any time we see a wedding from Cedarwood Weddings, we know we’re in for a treat. Lauren and Rhett’s wedding didn’t disappoint, and was filled to the brim with stunning proteas, eye-catching design, and some of the most gorgeous scenery we’ve seen in quite a while, all captured by the wonderful Q Avenue Photo.

adventurous Historic Cedarwood wedding - photo by Q Avenue Photo http://ruffledblog.com/adventurous-historic-cedarwood-wedding

From the bride, Lauren: We envisioned something very natural, whimsical and free-flowing. Our wedding was kind of an on-going project that would change as we made decisions. We knew off the bat that we wanted a very nature oriented look of the wedding and that we didn’t necessarily want a primary color but more of a very light color scheme overall. We did make our own wedding favors but other than that Cedarwood handled a lot of the little details that made our day so lovely! I requested a lot of wild flowers, (no formal looking flowers were really used) there were lots of succulents and a couple roses thrown into my bouquet as well.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? I think the main thing is just to keep taking time out for each other and not to lose sight of what it’s really all about; a lifelong commitment to one another. Also, it’s one of those things that you don’t want to “over plan” for and stress about because that’s not going to get you there any sooner. We would make little weekly/monthly goals and let the rest fall into place as time went on. It was a blast and Rhett was so much help! Enjoy the details! Don’t skimp on the photography!

Handcrafted Singapore Wedding

DIY Weddings

Photos by:

Jonathan Ong

Sit tight lovelies, because we’ve got something special in store for you. Pam and Joel’s Singapore wedding was handcrafted from head to toe by the bride and her designers, In Merry Motion. Pam even designed her own wedding dress – which we adore, obvs. Thanks to Jonathan Ong for capturing this beautiful affair!

handcrafted Singapore wedding - photo by Jonathan Ong http://ruffledblog.com/handcrafted-singapore-wedding

From the bride, Pam: We wanted our wedding focus to be a thanksgiving celebration for our family and friends, and for it to be less about us, and more about the love and grace that we have received through our years of courtship! We have been very blessed with divine Providence in our lives, and hoped to share that with our guests. We envisioned a wedding that was intimate and authentic to us! We went for a natural, clean, and light style.

Our graphic designer friends Alex and Puiyee designed our invitations, along with the ampersand that included our initials, and all the illustrations used during wedding – including the adorable jam jars and the portraits of us. The portraits were also used for our engagement (Joel planned a scavenger hunt to propose to me, and Alex and Puiyee designed a series of cards for each station).

Our friends from In Merry Motion designed the look of our wedding: nature-inspired with a handcrafted touch! Our colour scheme involved watercolour tones of powder blue, light wood, blush, and light green. All the decorations for the wedding were handmade by our friends Joyce & Weiyan – the designers from In Merry Motion. This included the feature backdrop inspired by the verse from Ecclesiastes: “He makes all things beautiful in His time”, with aged pages from wise books and hymnals; hand-cut autumn leaves in muted watercolour draped over our wedding reception dinner at the Food for Thought (at the National Museum of Singapore).

We designed our wedding bands, and had it made by the Saught artisans in Cambodia (his was pink gold, mine was yellow gold – both with a touch of artillery shells in it!) I designed my wedding dress, and had it handmade in Cambodia – using natural, handwoven silk! WIth the surplus lace from the wedding dress, I used it to DIY my headband for the wedding ceremony. We also had a DIY jewelry table for our wedding guests at the wedding receptions: they were words from the ‘fruits of the Spirit’ taken from the Bible – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control, handstamped onto round pendants; and we provided an assortment of chains, cords and loops for our guests to get creative! The pendant charms were all handmade by Saught artisans in Cambodia.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? We found that the best way to avoid getting too stressed out by the wedding preparation was to keep our focus on what our goal of the wedding was: for us, it was to honour our family, to honour Christ, and bless our friends. It was much easier to make decisions on venue, programme etc based on that; and to have a wedding that we knew was very much authentic and true to ourselves – which allowed us to create good, fun memories for our family and friends. We also made it a point to make sure that we didn’t get too caught up in the wedding preparations, and to carve out time to date (without doing wedding stuff), and prepare ourselves for a lifetime together! :)

Our processional was “Morning has broken/Sing Hallelujah”; and our recessional was “Sing Hallelujah”. Our super talented friend who is a musical/theatre actress Ethel Yap sang this for us! We didn’t have a first dance… because we both have two left feet! I did plan a little surprise for Joel at our friends’ dinner with a few friends – and sang “Close to You” on a watermelon ukulele.

Handcrafted Fall Wedding

DIY Weddings

Nothing quite perks up our day like when we receive a wedding from one of our very own brides, except maybe when that bride used one of our DIY tutorials for her wedding decor. Ashley and Conor wanted a whimsical and eclectic wedding day, and a backdrop of DIY paper wheels helped send them on that path! Katie Ruther Photography did a brilliant job capturing the day, so let’s get started:

handcrafted fall wedding - Katie Ruther Photography - http://ruffledblog.com/handcrafted-fall-wedding/

From the bride, Ashley: Our vision for our wedding was to encompass both of our personalities. We wanted it to be whimsical and eclectic. As cliche as it sounds, we wanted this wedding to capture our love. I know, I know… cheesy, but it is so true. Our colors were ivory, navy blue, and gold. We didn’t stick to one solid thing. We saw what we liked and we went with it!

We DIY’d everything. Downtown Los Angeles became my best friend. My mom and I spent hours working on everything, but in the end, it not only saved us a ton of money, it was way more personal. We made the back drop. We bought two pieces of fencing from Lowe’s, constructed stands, made some paper windmills, and hung some material between. We also did all of our own bouquets. We bought a ton of flowers from the LA flower market and each bridesmaid got to make their own personalized bouquet. My favorite accent that we made were all of our gold dipped feathers. We purchased mass amounts of ivory and white feathers, dipped the tips in gold paint and covered them in gold glitter. They were the best accessory! They were in the bouquets and flower arrangements on the tables.

Modern Speakeasy Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Shea Christine

Oh me oh my, do we ever have a treat for all you readers today! Desiree Dawn Events and Shea Christine got together to create this styled shoot inspired by a modern speakeasy, with touches of herringbone and days of yore at every turn. We adore this elegant take on a couple who met in a bar over cocktails and decided to embrace their first meeting through an intimate, humble elopement. Not to mention all the incredible paper goods from Make Merry!

herringbone paper goods

From the event designer, Desiree: I think what inspires me the most is looking at old photographs of weddings, fashion, and era-specific details. Then, what I love to do is find a way to make them new again. That being said, move over trendy Chevron pattern, it’s time for your bigger, bolder brother to make way into the wedding world: Herringbone. You can find this delicious pattern in a lot of menswear, especially suits with a 1920s nod. It was a feature in our paper goods from Make Merry! and carried out through our groom’s hat, lamp shades, his bow tie, and the beautiful handmade garland that graced their table.

For more prohibition era inspiration, I looked for elements that gave that, “we met at a bar and fell in love over cocktails” vibe. A modern speakeasy is what we came up with. Imagine seeing your lover for the first time on your wedding day as he presents you with a celebratory shot to get you ready for your big day! We asked the craftsmen behind Bar-Lab to come up with two old-fashioned cocktails with a modern twist. I love the whimsy of a groom’s shot being called a Floral Garden. More so, with old-fashioned weddings, you’d get married, have drinks and eat cake. So simple.

After a luscious portrait session and a short exchange of vows, the Mister and his Missus sat down at their vintage table with a very colorful and modern tables-cape. We used a combination of vintage rentals and mod rentals. The vintage cake cutter was made unique by ‘dipping’ the handle in copper paint, another one of our vintage DIY touches brought to life. Copper is such a swanky color, it gives you that shimmer that so many long for but still has a solid, industrial feel. We hand foiled the place card holders with copper and continued with that sparkle very subtly on the cake, in the flowers, and in our brides accessories.

DIY Pixelated Backdrop

DIY Projects

Photos by:

We were completely wowed by the epic-scale paper backdrop in this afternoon’s wedding from Sweet Sunday Events, so imagine our delight that we’re able to have Katy herself here to share just how to make our very own! This tutorial is amazingly simple, but will take a fair bit of time to complete — so pour yourself a glass of wine, flip on your favorite program, and get to it! Thank you Caroline Joy Photography for the images!

From Katy of Sweet Sunday Events: Paper art is something we love. This project added the perfect touch of femininity and gave that wow factor to our shoot. Here is a helpful DIY to give you the step by step on making it yourself. Enjoy!

For this project, you will need:
-Packs of colored paper (we used all shades of green and purple, but you can pick your colors)
-Pack of white paper (again color is up to you!)
-Hot glue gun
-Pack of glue for glue gun
-Scissors
-Large sheet of plywood (we used a 4 x 8 piece from Home Depot, but this is the designer’s choice)

diy backdrop supplies

Instructions:
Come up with an image that you would like to create for this project. We chose to make an abstract flower, but you can decide on whatever your little heart desires. Used as a small framed art piece in your home to a wedding backdrop (link this to our shoot), it’ll look great any way you choose.

diy backdrop tutorial

1. Begin by folding paper widthwise into three sections. Fold a good amount because you’ll probably use more than you think.

2. Cut paper on the folded lines. Then make multiple slits in each section. Be sure not to cut all the way through the paper. This will help to save you time!

diy backdrop tutorial

3. For extra texture you can curl some of the paper like you would ribbon. Pull the cut paper between your thumb and the blade of your scissors. The friction causes the paper to turn up slightly.

diy backdrop tutorial

4. Starting from the bottom, hot glue the cut pieces onto the plywood. Moving from the bottom to the top works best!

diy backdrop tutorial

5. Placing the cut pieces approximately 2 inches above the layer below it, continue to hot glue your way up the board. After a few layers of gluing you will start to see a fringe effect happening. Incorporate color and bring your design onto the board.

6. If you curled your paper, just randomly mix these pieces in. You can turn them backwards and forwards to create a more textured look.

7. Be patient and glue, glue, glue. You’ll eventually have a beautiful, one of a kind piece of artwork that’ll make everyone envious.

CMYK Inspired Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

This wedding from photographer Angela Renee is one you’re not going to forget any time soon — in fact, you might want to make sure you have some time set aside before you pore through this stunner! These incredibly talented newlyweds, who are both graphic designers, collaborated on maybe the best wedding website we’ve seen yet. It set the tone perfectly for this technicolor, stylish, fun day, and we love the result!

multicolored wedding ideas

From the bride, Lauren: Like every bride, I really wanted our wedding to be unique. With so many inspiring weddings out there it seemed like a huge undertaking. But thanks to the help of my super hero-like mom, and the fact both Matt and I are graphic designers, we were able to create a truly custom wedding.

It all started with our wedding colors – CMYK which in the creative industry, stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. 4 beautiful colors that spoke to who we were and opened us up a lot of really fun ideas. Next came the printed materials – save the dates, invitations, programs, etc. As I designed each item, my mom printed, cut, and assembled each piece. A HUGE undertaking I’ll never be able to thank her enough for. She also hand-painted our card box and chair signs, as well as put together 3 different hanging fabric strip backdrops we used throughout the venue.

To welcome guests as they entered the room, my dad built a custom frame which we hung hundreds of photos from with clothespins. He also hand-made our cake toppers – bride and groom Totoro’s from one of our favorite movies.

Our centerpieces (which also doubled as our wedding favors) were mason jars filled with CMYK sand and topped with a succulent plant. We made these ourselves with the leftover mason jars from my sisters wedding. The bridesmaids also created the bride and bridesmaid bouquets the day of the wedding.

We wanted a way to say “hello” to each guest as they arrived, so we included a personal message on each guest’s escort card. For the wedding party and parents of the bride/groom, we took this a step further and illustrated character versions of each person which we framed and placed at their seats.

Besides all of our DIY projects, we tried to find other unique touches we could add to the day. Instead of a traditional photobooth, we had a flip book photo booth. The photographer took a video, and then printed and turned it into a mini flip book, offering an animated keepsake of the day. The bridesmaids picked out their own dresses in the CMYK color family, and the groomsman wore CMYK gingham ties. Each member of the wedding party also had CMYK colored wayfarer sunglasses. Great for photos, great for the dance floor! We nixed the traditional first dances, and instead played one of our favorite drinking games – Thunderstruck, where guests gather in a big circle and take turns drinking as AC/DC sings “Thunderstruck.” Instead of a traditional wedding cake, one of my bridesmaids who happens to be an expert baker made us CMYK peanut butter balls and letter pressed cookies with our initials.

Ombre Austin Wedding

Garden Weddings

Photos by:

Haleigh and Collin’s wedding takes one of our favorite trends, ombre, and brings it to a whole new level. With the professional expertise of Sweet Sunday Events and photos by Al Gawlik, no detail went overlooked, from the incredible hanging paper centerpieces to the stunning ceremony altar installation. Keep an eye out for one seriously spiffy ring bearer!

bridesmaids outside chapel

From Sweet Sunday Events: What can one do with paper and a sewing machine? Ohhhh, let me count the ways! Old books turned into paper strands bunched and stacked, some were also sewn together to create new and fun textures. All together the old books created a lovely and dramatic centerpiece hanged impeccably from the center chandelier. Classic cardstock was added as a pop of color mixed in the book strands and pink ombre bunting draped to the outside chandeliers just perfectly above the guest tables during the reception. Coffee filters were dyed and turned into ombre flowers at the hand crafted ceremony arch and cake backdrop.

OH!, let’s not forget the gorgeous tabletops. Painter’s gauze was ombre dyed and gathered in the center of the tables. Gorgeous milk glass vases were painted gold and held white hydrangea, beautiful garden roses, ranunculus, fever few and fern. Haleigh {our super sweet bride} collected over a hundred mismatched vintage napkins, painted mini clothes pins that just pushed the level of sweet overboard. Seriously, between us {Sweet Sunday Events} and the bride, not one detail was overlooked. It was clear the guests were incredibly thrilled with the soiree as they danced the night away and ended the night with a ribbon send off for Haleigh and Collin with a Tiff’s Treat in hand!

Crimson Milwaukee Wedding

DIY Weddings

Photos by:

Looking over these images sent over by Anna Page Photography, it’s easy to see where our eyes were first drawn to: that amazing crimson accordion pinwheel backdrop. It’s no surprise that the bride and groom are graphic designers, given that they had their hands in all the day’s DIY details. We’re also pretty fond of the silhouette cake toppers, featuring famous pairings and couples from pop culture.

red bridesmaids dresses

From the bride, Megan: The pinwheels and all other decorations were made by JP and me, my sisters, and my closest friend Sarah. As graphic designers we love the tactile nature of paper and made all of our decorations aside from the flowers out of it. The cake toppers were an idea I had that JP perfected. JP made 20 cake toppers of different famous couples.

Our wedding was sentimental and joyous. Our wedding color scheme was various shades and hues of red. Our DIY projects included:
-We made tons of red pinwheels that decorated the chairs at the reception and made a huge focal wall behind the bridal parties table.
-We made our invitations, save the dates and programs.
-We sewed a booklet for each guest that served as the place card. Inside each booklet we wrote a message to the guest. We knew we wouldn’t get to talk to everyone during the day so we wanted to write them each a note thanking them.
-Jp made all the cake toppers!
-I made my garter

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Pick one thing you are going to splurge on that means the most to you and one thing you are going to let go and live without. For Jp and me, having wonderful photography to look at after our wedding was a must so we splurged on photography. While I love cake we decided that the cakes didn’t really matter to us in the grand scheme of things. This really helped us gain some perspective that everything in the planning process is not equally important and somethings you can live without.

Paper Protea DIY Tutorial

DIY Projects

Photos by:

Remember this stunning gorgeous photoshoot shot by Ashley Forrette from a couple weeks ago? The crafter behind those amazing paper proteas place cards, Rachel Coddington of the Etsy shop Sunny and Stumpy, is back to share with us a tutorial on how to make them yourself. Thank you for sharing!

diy paper artichokes place cards

From Rachel: Using the PDF template, cut out all of your pieces. The smallest circle petal will be your “leaf,” and the columns will be your “center”. Choose whichever colors you want for those particular petals (I like the inside to be light and the leaf to be green, personally!). If you don’t want to cut them out, you can always buy them pre-cut from my shop.

diy paper flowers

diy tutorial blue paper flower protea from rachel coddington

Start in the center. Glue the edge carefully so that there is still equal space between each petal. (I use PVA, but regular glue can work fine).

Glue a small spot on each petal. Overlap the petals and hold until secure.


diy tutorial blue paper flower protea from rachel coddington

With an open pair of scissors, curl each of the remaining petals. Your circle petals will need to be pressed into your hand so that they curl upwards and don’t stick straight up when you glue them to the base.


diy tutorial blue paper flower protea from rachel coddington

diy tutorial blue paper flower protea from rachel coddington

Take the tallest set of petals and glue them to the center.


diy tutorial blue paper flower protea from rachel coddington

Take the medium and smallest set of petals, offset them from the first set, and glue them to the center as well.


diy tutorial blue paper flower protea from rachel coddingtondiy tutorial blue paper flower protea from rachel coddington

This is the trickiest part- apply a small line of glue to the circular part of the flower. This will hold fine once it dries. You can apply it to the base circle petal if you prefer.


diy tutorial blue paper flower protea from rachel coddington

Once that part is glued, you can put on the finishing touch- the leaf! You may need to shape the petals a bit with your hand so they don’t just lie flat- you want them to curl up to meet the other petals.

You’re done! You can play with the petals at this point to have them stick out or stay close to the center.

Instructions:
Step 1: Create a template for the tracing paper/vellum. I used my old drawing block as the template. After a few attempts to get the right template, I am satisfied with my crisp looking template!

Step 2: Trace the template into the tracing paper and use cutter to cut it. But for the folded side in the middle, use the blunt edge of the cutter to give a folding mark.

Step 3: Spray the tracing paper with the Adhesive Spray. Don’t forget to put newspaper to cover the surrounding area. Leave it for 15 seconds. Carefully stick it to the doilies, make sure it fits perfectly.

Step 4: Fold the doilies to follow the tracing paper’s structure. Secure the inside of the envelope with double-sided tape. Voila! Beautifully hand-crafted envelope.
