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!

Oldfield Plantation Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

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

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

Set them in glass candle holders like these for a more elongated effect, or add even more elegance and use dreamy metal candelabras. Swoon!

Language of Flowers Wedding Editorial

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Hanna Photography

I recall the first time I heard about the meanings of flowers and almost immediately, I was captivated by it. The gesture of using certain flowers in a wedding bouquet to symbolize important characteristics is just so dreamy and romantic. Stemming from a novel, Festive Event Planning used the shoot concept to its full potential. With Hanna Photography commanding the camera, it’s no shocker that the whole editorial and the darling florals by Emlily Floral Design makes this shoot so alluring to look at.

romantic wedding dresses - photo by Hanna Photography http://ruffledblog.com/language-of-flowers-wedding-editorial

From the event designer, Festive Event Planning:
The inspiration behind the shoot stemmed from the novel “The Language of Flowers,” by Vanessa Diffenbaugh, in which a young girl turns to flowers as a source of creativity and identity in the midst of trials. Her skills go beyond her ability to create beautiful arrangements to also include her aptitude for weaving together florals with meanings and purposes specific to the recipient.

orange taper candles - photo by Hanna Photography http://ruffledblog.com/language-of-flowers-wedding-editorial

In this way, I was compelled to create a story through the language and meaning of flowers – utilizing flowers that conveyed messages pertinent to love and marriage. Emily of Emlily Floral Design beautifully delved into this concept with arrangements of lavender roses (enchantment), white roses (purity), ferns (sincerity) sweetpeas (pleasure) and white clovers (think of me), garlands of ivy (fidelity/marriage) and passion vine, and assortments of yellow tulips (helpless love), veronica (fidelity), and lamb’s ear (softness/support), which hung overhead.

With the reception table, I wanted to exude the feeling of wildness meeting elegance, with natural garlands running across the table that was purposefully adorned with handmade beeswax candles and linens hand dyed using fruits and flowers. Tableware by Pretty Vintage Rentals included handpainted salad plates, gold-tone flatware and mismatched crystal pressed glass stemware.

The invitations by Cecile’s Paper Co. embodied this story of flowers with a mix of bold prints and colors with soft letterpress lettering, while the three-tier cake by Frost It Cakery took the appearance of a blossoming rose. Additional details included the flower satchet favors, which were handcrafted using lavender and spray roses, and gilded jewelry by BHLDN. The intimate greenhouse of Stella Mare’s and a rose garden served as our backdrops, perfectly complimenting the natural feel of the day. In all, I wanted to tell a story with this shoot – a story of beauty, creativity and love.

Intimate Garden Wedding Ceremony

Garden Weddings

While we love a no holds barred wedding day with an elaborate reception, Danna and Gib’s wedding makes it clear that all you really need are two people madly in love (and maybe some cake). Emily March Photography celebrated the couple’s garden wedding ceremony — decorated beautifully by TreBella Florist — which was followed up with some tasty eats and tequila shots. What better way to celebrate saying yes to forever?

From the photographer, Emily March: Danna and Gib had the definition of a whirlwind engagement. Gib proposed this past February, only a few months before getting deployed overseas with the Army. Too excited to wait to get married, the pair opted for an intimate civil ceremony barely a month after Gib popped the question!

Retro Camping Inspired Wedding

Wedding Design

As soon as I hear there’s a bride with blue hair, I get a little skip in my step. Add to that an equally stylish wedding party in this styled shoot from Kelsea Holder Photography and The Queen’s Bees, and how could you possibly go wrong? The flowers from eden floral slo are a peachy pink and yellow dream come true, tied together with long cascading ribbons and arranged in a way that’s just as fun and unique as the bride herself.

Retro Camping Inspired Wedding - photo by Kelsea Holder Photography http://ruffledblog.com/retro-camping-inspired-wedding

From Jennifer Hix of The Queens Bees: I really wanted to do something different and have it about not just the bride and groom but the family and friends around them. I really look at weddings as a celebration of not just a union between two people, but really a marriage of family and friends, the people who shaped, encouraged, and challenged you to help make you the person you are. I wanted it be a love letter back to the loved ones and a true celebration of all. And with creativity sparking left and right, it became the “Something Blue” shoot.

Peach and Copper Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

A peach wedding dress, be still our hearts! This shoot by Mikaela Marie Photography was just thoroughly decked out in the softest and dreamiest shade of peach and creatively, Lovely and Bubbly Events thought to pair it with an equally-beautiful shade of light blue. The two colors together are so harmonious for the eyes! Just when we thought that the color coordinating was done, copper–the ever-growing metallic color that we certainly cannot get enough of–was tossed in places as seen at the sweetheart table and even as tiny flecks on the wedding cake. Rounding off the fun and flirty inspiration were the peachy florals that So Lovely Weddings and Blooms provided for the shoot. There was a generous array of green foliage for the bouquet and the centerpieces, with stems of pretty peach peonies and garden roses peppered in here and there. We’re loving how fresh this wedding inspiration looks!

peach wedding dresses - photo by Mikaela Marie Photography http://ruffledblog.com/peach-and-copper-wedding-inspiration

From the event designer, Alyssa Gabel of Lovely and Bubbly Events: The design for this shoot really stemmed from the idea of a peach wedding dress. We love the different colored wedding gown trend, but we decided to take it a step further with a non-traditional color while keeping the season of summer in mind. That peachy and copper feel was incorporated all throughout the shoot in the paper products, the peach tree place card wall, and peachy popsicles. We also loved the idea of mixing rustic and industrial design elements. The rustic elements like our antique white dining table and white barn venue mixed with the modern industrial copper chairs made this editorial really stand out. This idea of mixing styles shows how a couple with two different tastes can incorporate both of their personalities in their wedding design.

Peach and Gold Spring Wedding

Wedding Design

Peach and gold is such a magic combination and no matter what style your wedding is, this color duo just works so beautifully together. Shelley K Photography and her group of creatives including Station ’62 and Hearts & Petals decided to venture out into their hometown of eastern Oregon to see what goodness they could create for a peach and gold spring wedding in the rural backdrop. I think “create” is a clear understatement with this shoot when you see the photos. They pulled in the most gorgeous peach flowers to create such stunning arrangements on a contrasting wooden table and the vibrant colors just popped out. Always a great complement, teal was brought in and you see hints of it in the florals and in my favorite element, the bird-printed napkins. Love small details like that!

Peach and Gold Spring Wedding - photo by Shelley K Photography http://ruffledblog.com/peach-and-gold-spring-wedding

From the photographer, Shelley K Photography: Fellow eastern Oregon creatives and myself put together an amazing gold and peach themed bohemian wedding inspiration captured on film. This project was put together by a group of women living in rural eastern Oregon. We wanted to inspire local brides and others planning weddings in rural communities to not be afraid to step outside the box a little bit. Our bride and groom models were so inspired that they decided to throw a surprise wedding following the shoot. They called and texted all their friends the morning of the shoot and had an amazing 75 person turn-out.

Peach and Gold Southern Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Riverland Studios

We’ve been hearing so many wonderful things about one of the newest venues in Charleston, The Gadsden House. And rightfully so! Recently, this venue was gussied up with the one-of-a-kind floral design by Branch Design Studio. Using Riverland Studios as the photographer for this shoot, Whitney wove her magic and came up with the most pristine creations of ranunculus, anemones, and kumquats nestled in milk glass. Topping off the tables was the most darling printed table runner from Lulie Wallace‘s textiles. Very southern belle chic!

peach and gold southern wedding ideas - photo by Riverland Studios http://ruffledblog.com/peach-and-gold-southern-wedding-ideas

From the photographers, Riverland Studios: Riverland Studios is a collective of talented photographers based in Charleston, South Carolina. We recently launched a sister studio, Studio Adele, and decided to put together a local styled shoot to mentor our newest talent and get inspired for the spring wedding season. When we were brainstorming ideas we were really drawn to the notion of using only local vendors and Lulie came to mind as the main inspiration! Lulie is a local designer and artist who exemplifies contemporary Southern style. All of us here at Riverland love her gorgeous paintings – we pulled inspiration from her “tablescapes” series – and were so excited to incorporate some of her fabrics into the day.

The color palette of soft, warm neutrals and feminine aesthetic of her designs felt like the perfect compliment to the soft light in The Gadsden House. Whitney at Branch Design Studio did such an amazing job with the florals. We decided on ranunculus, anemones, kumquats (which are all around the Lowcountry right now!) among other gorgeous blooms. She also created a pretty amazing flower crown which of course we had fun shooting. We included vintage pieces of milk glass to add to the tablescape of florals and golds accented by a fabric table runner sewn from a Lulie Wallace textile. One of our amazing photographers, Amanda, also happens to be quite talented with hand lettering after taking the Parris Chic Boutique Calligraphy Workshop. She hand painted the ombre peach and gold place cards which perfectly paired with the “Iris” fabric from Lulie.

Romantic Southern Elopement Inspiration

Wedding Design

When I saw this beautiful shoot by Lindsay Herbst Photography, I immediately fell in love. I adore how Design Studio South made it so intimate with a sweetheart table just nestled in the Savannah woods, a sumptuous cobalt blue linen draped casually, and the peachiest of dahlias and ranunculus by Colonial House of Flowers: just perfect for Georgia.

From the photographer, Lindsay Herbst Photography: I, as well as other film photographers from all over the country, came together for a 3 day styled shoot out/self taught workshop called Better Together. We had all met this past October attending another workshop in Georgia, and realized that we had learned just as much from each other, than we did from the workshop! During the workshop, and after, We all clicked so much, and really embraced the whole idea of Community Over Competition, We were constantly sharing tips on each others work, embracing our new found love of shooting film, encouraging each other, and growing from each other. A lot of us felt frustrated that there was a lack of inspiration in our areas, so we decided to collaborate on a styled shootout where we learned from each other, shared our struggles and our creative ideas.

Blue and Peach Organic Wedding

Romantic Weddings

The combination of soft blue and delicate peach in today’s wedding is one to fall in love with. Caroline Lima Photography and Tre Bella worked to make Danielle and Adam’s big day as memorable as possible, and we have no doubt they achieved their goal. There’s much to love in this wedding, but we’re still reeling over the bride’s emotional first look with her father!

From the photographer, Caroline Lima Photography: When I asked Danielle and Adam to name three things that made them fall in love with each other, they had a bit of trouble responding at first. That’s because they both felt that creating a short list would be difficult. But finally they spoke of being drawn to one another also because they each share a deep devotion to their families. And as I watched their beautiful wedding unfold, as their two families became one, I could clearly see why! Danielle and Adam come from truly loving, kind-hearted stock.

Romantic Santorini Elopement

Elopements

Julia Kaptelova

Is it ever not a good day for an elopement in Santorini? This beautiful wedding from Julia Kaptelova, Rosmarin Weddings and Events, and Fabio Zardi takes us to our favorite Greek island for the most intimate elopement of Inna and Ilya. The pastel color palette just happens to be the icing on the cake here!

From the designer, Anna of Rosmarin Weddings and Events: Lately it happens often that the couple wants to avoid big wedding with lots of guests. In this case, the best solution appears in intimate wedding just for two, when two loving people in an atmosphere of infinite romance pronounce the most important words for each other. That was the story of Inna and Ilya. They chose for the wedding ceremony a small church on a lonely cliff on the most beautiful island on earth – Santorini.

Inna, as a perfectionist, wanted to create an unforgettable day. That’s why she has paid great attention to details, decor and color palette. The choice fell on a peach – a gentle, very wedding color, green – we used a lot of ivy, fragrant eucalyptus, which is rich in Santorini, and as accents – purple, plum. Thin flowing fabrics, exquisite details, vintage dishes and fruit table decoration – all these made style truly gentle and romantic. Song of couple – John Legend’s “All of me”, and the main phrase of it — “All of me loves all of you” — became the leitmotif for the wedding paper goods, which perfectly fit into the overall style. Inna ordered pillowcases as well which decorated the bride’s morning.

There was so much tenderness that day! The beautiful bride looked incredibly elegant, and at the same time romantic. By the way the dress was sewn to order, and it is often the best solution when your dream dress is impossible to find in stores. Ilya looked like a character from old Hollywood films – perfectly fitting suit, accessories and, of course, a bow tie in the tone of the wedding palette. We organized a dinner on the terrace of the hotel room, and by tradition it started in the most romantic time on Santorini – when the sun had almost disappeared behind the horizon and painted the island in ocher colors. It was a wedding the couple dreamed of, and the memories of this day will remain in their hearts for a lifetime. No doubt about it!

Finnish Mansion Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

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

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

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

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

Greenhouse Romance Wedding Editorial

Wedding Design

We already knew that Santa Barbara has no shortage of stunning locations, but that still didn’t stop us from being floored by this styled shoot from Luna de Mare Photography and Jenn Sanchez Floral Designs. Soft peach and orange mix with light blues and greens for a look that’s heavy on the romance and sweet in all the right spots.

From the photographer, Beatrice of Luna de Mare Photography: Rancho Dos Pueblos served as the perfect location for our inspiration for an elegant outdoor wedding among thousands of clear glass panes reflecting the softest of our Southern California light. In the midst of light glowing ever-so-softly onto the warm buttery tones, the quiet sophistication of the color palette Jenn Sanchez chose, sat a perfect and beautiful tablescape. Jenn chose neutrals, paired with pale blue chargers by Case de Perrin, and added little pops of warmth & color with papaya and persimmons as a nod to the season.

Rust and Thistle Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

While blue and orange may not be the most common color scheme, this styled shoot from Tracy Enoch Photography, Meggie Fracisco Events, and Expressions of Decor is here to show us how incredibly beautiful the unexpected can be. Our favorite element of this shoot might just be the plaid tablecloth, which ties together the tablescape effortlessly!

From the event designer, Meggie Fracisco Events: The sparkling new Laurel venue in Grapevine, Texas brings a unique option to Dallas and Fort Worth Area couples. With an outdoor ceremony space, an indoor chapel for shelter from unpredictable Texas rain, and an indoor/outdoor reception space, couples looking to wed have lots of options at a location that feels like a destination, but still close to home. In this inspirational shoot, we show off the venue’s hill-country style charm with a bold palette of rust, thistle and porcelain white. The clean wood ceremony altar takes on a more relaxed tone with carefree curly willow and hearty blooms. Crystal chandeliers add a touch of sparkle.

The table, anchored by a robust heavy plaid linen and accented by comfy cushioned benches, overflows with lush greenery and abundant roses and tulips. Antique scroll dinnerware and cut crystal glassware play together to create a relaxed, mix-and-match feeling. Wood-handled Laguiole steak knives reflect the venue’s generous use of wood accents and build anticipation for a hearty Texas steak dinner. The bridal model dons a thickly textured Ines di Santo gown in a rich alabaster tone. The dramatic, low v-back mermaid gown highlights the model’s natural beauty. Sparkly drop earrings and a lush bouquet packed with roses complete the look. We’re honored to share this shoot to show that a wedding can be just as romantic and beautiful even with non-traditional wedding colors. When designing your wedding, start with the colors you love and then think about how to create comfort, warmth, and celebration within that palette. The result will be an event that’s completely unique!

Then we created a new design with Heidi from Zenadia where we tri-folded the menu cards for the evening to show each guest’s name calligraphed as a place card at each place setting! This truly turned created a spectacular detail! After the guests enjoyed a three course meal, we revealed the “party” room where the band began to play the first dance song for the bride and groom! The guests left the event saying it was the best wedding they had ever been to!

Modern Romantic Wedding in Provence

Wedding Design

Obviously I’m not going to pass up the the chance to add a little more Provence in my life, right? These images from Greg Finck‘s workshop, styled by Branco Prata and with floral design by Laetitia C. Fleurs d’Atelier, have positively taken our breath away, as Greg’s images always do. Branco Prato’s inspiration stemmed from the play of dark against light and still life imagery, all of which is explored beautifully here.

modern romantic wedding in Provence - photo by Greg Finck Photography http://ruffledblog.com/modern-romantic-wedding-in-provence

From the event designer, Sofia Ferreira of Branco Prata: The world is fast becoming a small village and these days everything and everyone seems to be connected! You can go from one place to the other in minutes, you can experience new things every single day. We live in an era where everything is possible and all the things that exist around us, can in fact inspire us! Light Workshop was just that, a gathering of people from all over the world, with different visions, cultures and expectations, so for me it was important to create something different, something that touch them in more ways than one.

I started to dream about the shoot the minute I woke up at 4 am thinking about the amber stone! When designing for a shoot, it’s normal to be overwhelmed with ideas and different concepts, but for me this time around it was quite clear: a modern couple in a decadent, dark and old setting, inspired by still life paintings! We always look for the bright side of things, even in photography we are always chasing the perfect light… for this shoot I wanted to turn things around and explore the dark side of things, after all the famous quote from Pythagoras “If there be light, then there is darkness.” was the best way to end the Light Workshop experience!

From the bride, Katie: We envisioned something simple and small – neither of us really wanted to feel like the center of a huge amount of attention! We also wanted it to feel more like a family vacation in Hawaii than a wedding, so that our respective families – who came from Seattle, California, Wisconsin and New Zealand – could get to know each other over the course of a few days. Puakea Ranch was the perfect venue for this, because we could all stay at the Ranch together, rather than heading off to separate hotels every night.The venue, on the Big Island of Hawaii, was a beautiful, secluded, historic, luxurious ranch, so the look of the wedding came naturally from that – it was rustic, elegant, and laid-back. I loved blush and gold for colors, so Rachael started there to create the amazing tablescape, with touches of blue and a eucalyptus centerpiece.

Flower recipe: For flowers, we focused on blushes, whites, and creams with accents of coral, including garden roses, peonies, and eucalyptus accents. I wore a bridal lei of white pikake and all the guests had white orchid leis.

Our cute nametags were made by theapothecarybee on Etsy, and we designed our rings ourselves at Green Lake Jewelry Works in Seattle. At the last minute, we put together a cute setup for the guests to throw rice from at the end of the ceremony (picture attached.) But other than that, I didn’t do a lot of DIY – planning the wedding was hard enough :) We did have a good friend as an officiant, my cousin as our bartender, and my sister’s boyfriend DJed and handled the music during the ceremony, so all of that kept it feeling very personal and ‘like us.’

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Nothing groundbreaking – just communicate and be yourselves – do what you think is right for the two of you as a couple. Neither of us are big planners, so if that’s you, I would recommend having a wedding planner. Rachael at Vintage & Lace did an amazing job pulling all the design details together while incorporating my likes and dislikes, which was something I had no clue how to do on my own. I would also say, even though it feels like you have to make every little thing perfect, don’t worry about the small details too much! That’s not the most important thing in the end.

Wedding Music:
Processional: “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” Elvis Presley
Pick songs that remind you of dates, special moments and most importantly for the party, songs that make you want to dance and have a laugh. Other songs, “I Love You Yes I Do” by James Brown and The Famous Flames, Sam Cooke’s “Just for You.” Most of the playlist was 50s rock and roll, 60s soul and late 70s to early 80s indie hits. Warning: people will want to dance to matter how small the wedding, so even if you aren’t planning for dancing, be ready with the hits both classic and modern. We made that mistake and had to scramble and make an emergency dance playlist. It ended up great because the Brooklyn Hustle from Saturday Night Fever became a huge hit – it helped that my dad was an expert at the choreography!

Mexico City Courtyard Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Photos by:

We hope you’re prepared for a little fantasy trip to Mexico City, because this shoot from Sarah Kate Photographer and Joshua Aull Photography already has us daydreaming. Everything was shot right outside of the city, using locally sourced food and items with as-always impeccable floral design from Bows and Arrows.

Mexico City courtyard wedding ideas - photo by Sarah Kate Photographer and Joshua Aull Photography http://ruffledblog.com/mexico-city-courtyard-wedding-ideas

From Sarah Kate Photographer: This colorful shoot in Mexico City was a collaboration between my photographer fiancé, Joshua Aull, and I, plus Bows and Arrows floral. We sourced most items from the local markets and from our hosts’ traditional Mexican home! We wanted to convey a shoot of a different type. Colorful and lively! We shot in the forest outside the city and at the most picturesque courtyard you can imagine!

Romantic Peach Wedding at LA Arboretum

Bohemian Weddings

When your inspiration for your wedding day is Anthropologie, it’s a safe bet you’ll be dealing in some seriously eclectic and chic style. That’s the look bride Savannah went for when she married her beau Coleman in Los Angeles, with the talented Joe+Kathrina Photography and Tasteful Tatters in tow. Add in some DIY touches from the bride’s family and friends, and you’ve got this beautiful result!

romantic peach wedding at LA Arboretum - photo by Joe and Kathrina Photography http://ruffledblog.com/romantic-peach-wedding-at-la-arboretum

From the bride, Savannah: I would definitely have to say that Anthropologie inspired the look and feel of my wedding. The Anthropologie brand and style is distinct and easy to identify, which is what I wanted people to think of my wedding; when they walked into our venue and looked around I wanted them to feel my personal style through the entire decor. I wanted each guest to think, “Wow, this feels just like Coleman and Savannah.” Well… who am I kidding? My cowboy husband definitely doesn’t exactly have the Anthropologie style, but you know what I mean, I wanted it to feel like us :) Bold patterns, an artistic feel and a feminine touch, were all things I drew upon from the Anthropologie style.

My wonderful wedding coordinator Emilee Sutherland and her team created these amazing DIY napkins for all of our guests. They were so beautiful and exactly what I wanted. The Tasteful Tatter team also made these to die for cake and pie boxes so that the guests could all take a slice of pie or cake home as their favor. This is just another example of them making my vision come to life, I showed them a picture and they did it! They are incredible. My last name is Lay, like Lay’s potato chips, so as a fun and personal touch we also handed out Lay’s potato chips with a cute tag as another favor. So cheesy, but cute! My cute momma and all of her friends also made individual cakes for each table. This way, when my hubby and I cut the cake, all of our guests were able to cut their cake at the same time. The individual cakes were so beautiful and such a unique touch. It was a perfect way to engage the guests and make them part of the experience.

Wedding Music:
First Dance: “Making Memories of Us,” Keith Urban

From the photographers, Joe+Kathrina Photography: Savannah had told friends, “I’m going to marry a cowboy one day.” As she went off to college little did she know that she’d really meet her cowboy. Enter: Coleman, an actual farmer whose family owns and runs a farming business in Oregon. Friends knew instantly these two were in it for life. While planning a wedding in California, Savannah worked on finishing up school in Boise – which needless to say made it all quite difficult. They were hard set on their June date which made it even more difficult to find the perfect outdoor venue where they could really put their own touches to bring together both their city and country families together. Savannah’s parents really helped find their venue and with Emilee and her team this wedding came together perfectly. There were hints of DIY with romantic flair throughout the day. From each table having their own homemade cake and different cake topper as their centerpieces, plexi glass menus, a thrift found bike with a basket as their escort “table”, a fun pattern as their tablecloth, a large “Love is Patient” decor at their sweetheart table, and of course cowboy boots. We had only been able to meet with Savannah in person before the wedding, which is always nerve racking having to wait until the wedding day to meet the groom but Coleman could not have been more gracious. Watching these two and photographing them together, they were so natural in each others arms. Most of all you could fee; their happiness together. It was a good day.

Crisp Coastal Bridal Inspiration

Wedding Design

If any shoot could make us head for the coast, it’s this one photographed by Christine Pienaar Photography. Christine recently took part in a Christie Graham workshop, where a team of talented photographers captured gorgeous portraits accentuated beautifully with flowers by Garden Party Flowers. This is coastal romance at its finest.

crisp coastal bridal inspiration - photo by Christine Pienaar Photography http://ruffledblog.com/crisp-coastal-bridal-inspiration

From the photographer, Christine Pienaar Photography: With fall fast approaching the coast of Vancouver, this styled bohemian bridal look brings the perfect inspiration for brides who are swooning over long sleeved gowns. Just because the air is a little cooler and crisper, doesn’t mean couples need to hide away from a beautiful coastal setting. This shoot was brought together by the inspiration of the beautiful Rosa Clara long sleeve flared lace gown and deep blues of the west coast. With bohemian touch in mind, the brides fishtail braid ties in a romantic touch to go with the grooms sophisticated checkered suit. With a center piece to swoon over for days, the frame is not complete without the stunning scenery of the coastal rocks and evergreens.

Garden Wedding in Dripping Springs

Garden Weddings

I swear, it’s like today’s wedding took elements of all our favorite types of weddings and rolled it into one, and ended up with one ridiculously beautiful wedding day. The Nichols and Gypsy Floral put some absolutely beautiful work in as photographers and event designer/florist, respectively. And that dessert bar with drool-worthy iced donuts? Well, we’re already trying to find excuses to set one of those up at all of our upcoming events!

garden wedding in Dripping Springs - photo by The Nichols http://ruffledblog.com/garden-wedding-in-dripping-springs

From the bride, Averi: I wanted it to have a boho/romantic style with a comfortable easy going feeling. I also wanted it to have some whimsical/personal touches, like the pug cake toppers (we have 2 pugs), pug cuff links, funfetti cake/donuts, and the DIY calligraphy & cake table backdrop.

Our color scheme was white & creme, peach, blush, celedon + sea glass with pops of pink, bright peony & gold. I hand painted the watercolor escort and place cards and did the calligraphy on them. I also did the calligraphy on the bar sign, and welcome sign. I made the tassel backdrop behind the cake table.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? It is so easy to get caught up in the whole planning process and the million different awesome ideas you see on Pinterest. I definitely let some really small silly things stress me out that in the big picture didn’t end up mattering at all. I would say that just to try and enjoy the planning process and not get to swept up in the insignificant details. I know it sounds cliche, but honestly it really is about marrying the person you love and not about having the perfect Koozie color or a rain-free day. I tried not to let myself have an exact image of what the whole day would look like, because I didn’t want to get weirdly let down if it wasn’t the perfect picture I saw in my head. So when the day came around, a lot of it was a surprise to me and I absolutely loved how everything turned out!

Southern Peach Orchard Styled Shoot

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Christine Williams

We’re heading down South for today’s styled shoot, a dreamy wedding scene in shades of peach. Christine Williams, Peach Tree & Co., and A Unique Boutique put together a photo shoot that blends East and West Coast styles effortlessly, using vintage rentals and a chic wedding gown with sequin accents to tie everything together beautifully.

southern peach orchard styled shoot - photo by Christine Williams http://ruffledblog.com/southern-peach-orchard-styled-shoot

From the event designer, Genessa of Peach Tree & Co.: I call two places my home — Vancouver and Atlanta, Georgia where my dad lives and where I grew up. For the last few years I have worked with one of the top wedding planning companies here in Vancouver, Dream Group Productions. However, I have always dreamed of owning my own planning company specializing in Southern Weddings, Decor Styling, and DIY. Last fall I ventured on my own and created Peach Tree & Co. I wanted to have a company that connected the West Coast with the South ushering brides down to the South to create Dreamy Plantation weddings, or Brides from the South wanting the West Coast beauty for their wedding. I always knew I wanted to plan and style lavish Charleston soirees, intimate weddings on Myrtle Beach, or magical Savannah weddings.

peach table setting - photo by Christine Williams http://ruffledblog.com/southern-peach-orchard-styled-shoot

With this in mind, I created and styled this style shoot to bring the whimsy and ethereal qualities of Southern Weddings to West Coast brides and vendors. I created the concept of the calligraphy design, and place settings, with distressed edges. I wanted the dessert bar to be rustic with delicate details such as lace, and the vanity displaying the desserts. I wanted a open farm time with a floral runner and mismatched china patterns, and pink coupe glasses.

Hand Painted Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

How could we not fall in love with this incredible shoot from Nicole Berrett Photography and Stems of Dallas? Pinks, yellows, greens — our absolute favorite colors, all looking their best. The hand painted tablecloth by Marcy Cook Art absolutely steals the scene and turns the reception table into an all-out show-stopper.

From the photographer, Nicole Berrett: Inspired by the colorful hues of Marcy Cook’s handpainted cloth, together photographer Nicole Berrett and the floral designers of Stems of Dallas created an artistic piece surrounding a linen on a table. The idea was to create something erring on the side of simplicity while incorporating unique creativity.

Everything surrounding the cloth was of pristine, natural hues — from the walls of The White Sparrow Barn to the clean lines used in the elements upon the table. Clear glass encased mid-century gold taper candles were placed atop lucite stands, while dinner plates were set across a light marble stone with metallic gold detailing. A lush floral arrangement swept the center of the table creating an organic feel with pops of elegant, neutral florals.

The team created this intimate gathering set for a bride and her groom who have just made the promise of sharing a life together. The bride wears a gown of simple, understated beauty. Her hair, a touch of formal while subdued with natural and loose textures, compliments the neutral colors used in the make up on her face. Rayven of Beauty and the Blush Artistry created this effortless, yet breathtaking, look for the bride.

Black Tie Wedding with Watercolor Details

Garden Weddings

It isn’t every day you come across a wedding with a dream team as good as Nick Radford, Firefly Events, and Violet and Verde, so we’re thrilled to be sharing Emily and Matt’s wedding with you all! This creative couple hired some of the Northeast’s most talented vendors to bring their dream day to fruition, using a color palette of neutrals like ivory, blush pink, and pale peach. We absolutely love the result!

From the event designers, Firefly Events: It was such a pleasure to be a part of Emily + Matt’s love story! These two have an energy that is truly contagious, and we were eager to bring their fun and creative spirit to the forefront of their wedding day.

Caramoor provided a stunning natural backdrop for the happy couple to exchange their vows and dance the night away with their nearest and dearest. The ceremony was truly a family affair with Emily’s older brother officiating, her younger brother playing guitar for the processional, and both Emily’s sister, and Matt’s brother serving as maid of honor and best man. In fact, one thing that drew them to Caramoor for the site of their wedding, was the fact that Emily’s Grandpa lives just a few minutes away, and the family had spent time here when Emily was a child.

Some of our favorite details of the night included hand dyed napkins and hand painted escort cards, both in soft shades of pink and peach to offset all the beautiful florals and soft candle light from Violet + Verde. Romantic calligraphy from Anne Robin could be found throughout the wedding, including the invitations, the escort cards, placed at each guest’s seat.

Vintage Hot Air Balloon Wedding

Wedding Design

My goodness, what a treat we have to share with you all today. This styled shoot from Natalie Franke Photography, Pop the Cork Designs, and My Flower Box Events grabbed our attention right away with its color palette of fuchsia, peach, and cream, but it kept it with the amazing tablescape and the hot air balloon. How great would this idea be for a cheery summer wedding?

From the photographer, Natalie Franke: With pops of peach, pink, and cream – I felt swept away by all of the gorgeous details from this styled shoot. Held on a gorgeous estate north of Baltimore, a vintage hot air balloon served as the backdrop (and inspiration) for this editorial. I absolutely loved working with Jenna from Pop the Cork Events and watching her creative vision come to life in the summer sun! This entire shoot was a dream!

Chic Atlanta Wedding

W&E Photographie

I’ve got to be honest, it was nearly impossible narrowing down images for this wedding post. W&E Photographie and Amy Osaba are a deeply talented team, and Camilla and Luke’s wedding day was their time to shine. Piedmont Driving Club was a primo venue choice, and brilliantly showcased the elegant sophistication of the day.

Chic Atlanta Wedding - photo by w&e photographie http://ruffledblog.com/chic-wedding-at-an-atlanta-driving-club

From the bride, Camilla: Originally we wanted to have an outdoor wedding. I wanted it to feel ethereal and woodland, but once the forecast called for 95 degrees and rain, we figured it might not be so “ethereal” out there. We decided on Thursday to move it inside and I must say, it was lovely. Piedmont Driving Club and Amy Osaba worked beautifully together bringing the whole look inside. I wanted the space to be classic, full of greenery and florals, and as comfortable as possible. We tried to focus on the ceremony because we knew a party with my friends and family would be so fun no matter how much work we put into it.

It was intimate, dreamy, and FUN. I knew I wanted mostly neutrals, greenery, and light colors, but I was pretty adamant about having the dark pops of red and purple in the flowers. They ended up looking so beautiful against the navy dresses and in the setting!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? I was in my final year of graduate school while attempting to plan my wedding. This allowed/required me to take people up when they offered to help. When anyone offered to do something, I took them up on it. This ended up being a huge blessing and something that made our lives a lot easier! We got to plan our wedding with our moms, sisters, brothers, and friends. Basically, let people help you! It makes it oh so much more fun than to take it all on yourself and everyone can enjoy the day because they had a hand it making it come together. Word of warning to everyone else, don’t offer to help if you don’t mean it, because I will say yes.

Wedding Music:
I had a good friend of mine from high school playing for the ceremony, which was very special. My processional was “Be Thou My Vision” and let me tell you, it was a tear jerker. Just look at Luke’s face. During the ceremony we sang “Jesus, What a Savior!” This was one of my favorite parts. Luke and I faced out and sang with everyone in the room, praising Jesus! Our recessional was “This Girl” by Nickel Creek. Our first dance was to “Drive All Night” by Glen Hansard, the first song we ever danced to (and my vinyl copy got warped in this dang Atlanta heat and I’m a little distraught).

Vibrant Summer Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

If ever there was a gown that deserved its own styled shoot, it has to be this Marchesa beauty. Embellished with beads, shells, pearls, and pops of coral, it stopped us in our tracks the minute we first laid eyes on it. Trini Mai Photography captured every bit of the shoot beautifully, and Flower Allie truly wowed on floral design!

From the photographer, Trini Mai Photography: If I could dream up one word to describe summer, it would be “vibrant.” With a dress so unique that it inspires an entire shoot around it, we set out to capture a bright and happy summer wedding inspiration. Adorned with cheerful coral gems and pretty seashells, it evokes visions of merry days spent on the beach with sunshine on our shoulders and sand between our toes. Add in a charming blue beach house and a row boat covered in summer blooms, this wedding is headed towards total bliss.

Rainy Wedding Day Turned Day After Session

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Sterling Imageworks

Today’s feature is a special treat — sort of a real wedding and a styled shoot in one, you could say. An unexpected rain came through on this couple’s wedding day, meaning they had to move everything inside. Since that wasn’t the original vision they had for their most special occasion, they opted to have a wedding shoot the day after where they could get all the shots they had hoped for the day before. Sterling Imageworks and Events Rental and Floral did stunning work here!

rainy wedding day turned day after session - photo by Sterling Imageworks http://ruffledblog.com/rainy-wedding-day-turned-day-after-session

From the photographer, Sterling Imageworks: This was originally a real wedding submission but it rained on the couple’s big day (bummer I know). So, it is now a mix of their real wedding along with photos from a post-wedding session of the couple. (Same florist, same photographer, same couple, etc). I think this would be a good blog post for you guys because it can show your readers that it is NOT the end of the world if it rains and moves your outdoor ceremony inside.

I (Callie Sterling) partnered with Anna Rogers, a florist in Conway, AR to plan the post-wedding session shoot. We gathered some vintage China of her grandmothers and some decor we had around our homes and went to town. She was the total inspiration behind the florals – I just said something big that makes a statement, she made those visions come to life and then some. I think the long flowy greenery is extremely UNIQUE!!!!!! She used peaches, plums and greenery as her color inspiration behind this bouquet.

So, remember how I said it rained on the real wedding day? Well the storm paused for about 15 minutes and we got to use the large 36 inch balloons I bought for their wedding day. (I went all out for their wedding day as a photographer and then it rained so it was a huge let down — however, if it wouldn’t have rained we probably wouldn’t have done the post-wedding shoot) — everything happens for a reason right?

It’s always a special treat when we get to share a rehearsal dinner, and this one is quite a beaut. The talented team of Injoy Imagery, Willow Rose Events, and Rose Mint Studio collaborated to put together an intimate yet striking event at The Hartman Gallery for Will and Marie, and filled the evening with lovely little details and a cake that will blow. you. away.

From the event designers, Willow Rose Events: Will and Marie met years ago when Marie travelled to Canada. They met, kept in touch as friends. Years later, Will had by chance visited England and decided they should meet up. And the rest is history… that’s where their love story began. Will went to England to surprise Marie with a proposal. The ring is an antique ring – a combination of both their upbringing. The ring is made out of top part Canadian ring, and bottom English ring.

Their rehearsal was especially intimate and special as that was the first time both families met before their wedding 2 days later. I wanted to style the rehearsal in ways to reflect both their easy going personality, love for vintage and Marie’s country upbringing in England. This inspired me to incorporate lots of soft pastel colours, florals, and ‘wild’ flowers in vintage vases and romantic style with calligraphy menus and place cards.

Also, I wanted to have a moment that Marie will be able to treasure while getting her hair make up done. Since they both had a long distance relationship for so long, I had created a board where Will quoted all the things that he loves Marie, so she can read them while getting ready. It was meant to be a keepsake for her after the rehearsal as well.
