Downtown Birmingham Spring Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Photos by Heart

It seems like spring offers some of the prettiest weddings around, thanks in part to bountiful lush foliage and fresh blooms — quite a few of which you’ll see in this styled shoot from Photos by Heart and Vera Flora Design. Captured in downtown Birmingham, the shoot blends easy spring style with an urban industrial vibe (we’re loving the exposed brick) plus a cake so pretty, it’d be a near crime to eat it.

Colorful Agricultural Center Wedding in Marfa

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

Mandee Johnson

If you ask us, today’s wedding almost runs more along the side of “amazing dance party” than it does any sort of traditional wedding, and we positively love it. Newlyweds Josh and Betsy even performed a choreographed first dance, arranged by an Emmy-nominated choreographer! Let’s take a peek at the bright + fun images from Mandee Johnson, with beautiful coordination and flowers from Magic Hour Marfa.

Olga Siyanko

If getting a peek at a secret garden indoors excites you as much as it does us, then this styled shoot from Olga Siyanko and Bloomministry is going to be your soul mate. The Russian team of vendors created a positively stunning love story inspired by The Thorn Birds, complete with bush-like floral arrangements, blush pink candles, and a tablescape with the most refreshing pops of orange ranunculus at each place setting.

Wedding Design

Get ready for the crazy amount of beauty in this wedding inspiration. It’s being dished out from the design thanks to An Enlightened Event, the florals from Rogue + Fox Floral, and especially the couple! Many of you may recognize the ever-stunning blogger, Jenny Wu, and thanks to the lens of Anya Kernes Photography, these magical pictures are gracing us on the blog today. The styling is bliss and we’re going haywire over all of the lovely blues used and the overall result is crisp, elegant, and so modern.

A whimsical fête with such elegance.  Jessica Elle Photography captured the result of Chelsea and Zachary’s Oklahoma wedding, featuring the designs of Aisle Be With You, who worked closely with Chelsea on her dream wedding plans and all of the unique customization.

Spirited Alabama Wedding with Holiday Ideas

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

W&E Photographie

Just in time for all of the merry festivities, W&E Photographie sent over Sarah and Trey’s holiday-inspired Alabama fête that’s giving us all of the Christmas feels. They wanted to incorporate their beloved holiday and did so in a most elegant way, with a moody red and green palette (as seen in the bridesmaids’ dresses and the beautiful floral arrangements by Staci Bledsoe) and a wreath backdrop worth replicating. Just like the dessert table at their reception, this wedding is the sweetest.

Moody Burgundy and Gold Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Black attire, heaps of burgundy, and an always-needed dose of warm colors is what makes this rich wedding inspiration from the lens of INGAVEDYAN weddings + fashion so sublime. Nestled in the forest and with sky-high trees all around, this wedding design and fashion style is for the bride who’s daring to push the dark color limits and would even step into (and fashionably rock) a black wedding dress. Wild Rose Flowers‘ creations only added to the mix, with deep-hued blooms in all shades of red, grabbing attention. From the cake display to the tablescape with flashes of gold, we’re enamored with this wedding inspiration!

Wedding Design

This editorial was most intriguing, not to mention so beautiful! Floral designers Sebesta Design, Kate Farley Design, and Cottage Flowers know how harrowing it can be when choosing the right person for the job to create the blooms for a wedding. To lend out a helping hand to couples in the process of selecting, these mavens of floral-making created a pretend set of criteria based on a faux couple’s color palette and style. From there, they let their imaginations run amok and the end results photographed by Redfield Photography turned into a dazzling editorial and the creations are nothing short of bliss!

Australian florals, horseshoe escort cards and a family-style feast enhanced with bowls of citrus? We simply can’t get enough of Brooke and Sam’s Colorado wedding captured by Harper Point Photography. Calluna Events once again designed a gorgeous Colorado wedding with floral design by Lalé Floral Design, who added Aussie blooms like Kangaroo Paws, Geraldton Wax and Gum Nuts since the bride is from Australia herself.

Scenic Mt. Hood Organic Farms Wedding

Romantic Weddings

According to the bride, Hannah, she wanted to get married in a beautiful place and we have to agree with her and Jeremy that Mt. Hood Organic Farms is exactly that beautiful place they wanted and more. Maria Lamb Photography showed us all of the stunning farm scenes and how breathtaking they are, along with how effortlessly Whitney Werts Events and Foraged Floral managed to work in designs and blooms that meshed so well with the venue. If Portland looks like this all the time, we may have to make a few trips to catch the beauty!

Portland weddings - photo by Maria Lamb Photography http://ruffledblog.com/scenic-mt-hood-organic-farms-wedding

From the bride, Hannah: In the initial phases of wedding planning, we knew we wanted to get married in a beautiful place, surrounded by the people we love, with good food, Oregon beer, and great music. Our goal was to throw a fabulously beautiful party in celebration of our love! We also knew we were going to need some help to make this happen. We were lucky enough to find Whitney with Whitney Werts Events who has really made all of our wedding dreams come to life! Whitney has helped us make a beautiful event and put us in touch with the most perfect vendors.

Jeremy and Hannah met in college. The two were attending Reed College, Jeremy was a senior and Hannah was a sophomore. With the help of their mutual friend (and now groomsman in the wedding!) Henry, the two went on a date to a tiny little Thai restaurant in SE Portland. There must have been something extra special in the pad thai that evening, because the rest is history.

The Proposal: Hannah is a competitive horse back rider and totally obsessed with horses. Jeremy surprised her with tickets to the world cup of show jumping in Alberta, Canada. They spent the first day of the trip at the horse show, but the next day Jeremy drove them up to Lake Louise (probably one of the most beautiful places ever!) and proposed next to the lake. After Hannah said yes, the two celebrated with lakeside champagne and chocolates.

Gothic Glam Fall Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Gaudium Photography

Halloween has dawned upon us and what better inspiration to share today than one draped in swirls of marsala and wispy stripes of marble in a very glam and gothic setting. Gaudium Photography shared this haunting beauty orchestrated by Max & Dexter Event Design and it is all sorts of fabulous. With bold and elegance, this shoot is filled with rich, dark hues and moody florals courtesy of The Arrangement Company. All of these fine elements band together against the best architectural location you can think of for all of these Fall-inspired wedding elements, and it is nothing short of wonderful.

Blush Pink Wedding at Carondelet House

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Priscila Valentina

Today’s real wedding takes place at one of our favorite LA venues – the Carondelet House! Ever so dynamic, this space features everything from an urban loft interior to stained glass windows to whitewashed brick. Akemi and Brian’s biggest priority when it came to designing their special day was creating an event that reflected, well, them, and we’re happy to say that their wedding was a warm celebration of love, love and nothing but love! XOXO Events made sure the entire day went off without a hitch, and they exchanged “I do’s” beneath a charming combination of chandeliers and exposed beams. We are in serious awe of The Little Branch, whose tangled bundles of ranunculus, anemone, peonies and roses decorated the brick walls in a sliding scale of pink! You can see it all here in these moment-filled images from Priscila Valentina – we dare you not to shed a couple tears.

Intimate Wedding with Pup Ring Bearers

Jenna McElroy

How adorable is this playful + intimate Austin wedding? Some might consider planning a wedding on a hotel balcony to be a challenge, but Katy and Charlie accepted it with gusto and the result has truly left us speechless! Soft, pastel blooms from Margot Blair created an exquisite balance for the dark, geometric furniture, and those halo-wearing canines made sure that nothing was lacking on this special day. We especially love the pink watercolor curtain that served as an eye-catching ceremony backdrop. Jenna McElroy captured every small detail from the velvet ribbons that decorate the bouquet to the flash tat bar at the larger reception. We can’t wait for you to see it all!

When summer turns to fall, we can’t think of a more beautiful place to exchange vows than the scenic Pacific Northwest. Seana and Brian married each other in Portland, Oregon, and infused their wedding day with nods to the 1920s via vintage furniture, mercury glass, and a vintage-inspired wedding gown. With Hazelwood Photo behind the camera, Pearl and Roses Wedding Planning tackling day-of coordination, and Swoon Floral in charge of floral design, this is one for the books!

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

Elegant Calhoun Beach Club Wedding - http://ruffledblog.com/elegant-calhoun-beach-club-wedding

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

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

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

French Country Banquet Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Debbie Lourens

This Debbie Lourens and Green Goddess Flower Studio collaboration shoot is a vision in red. The deep ruby is just so mesmerizing and definitely screams French countryside when you see how this rich color is woven and worked into this editorial. It’s such a strong color on its own and adding a delightful punch of pale blue to the mix of colors is the icing on the cake. Not only does it bring out the red even more, it softens the whole look, giving it a nice touch of whimsy. There are so many treats to see with this wedding inspiration!

countryside wedding ideas - photo by Debbie Lourens http://ruffledblog.com/french-country-banquet-wedding-inspiration

From the floral designer and stylist, Green Goddess Flower Studio: The inspiration for this shoot was a French banquet in a relaxed country setting. Reminiscent of traditional family dining around a big table in an old Loire Valley chateau. The overall look of the table is one that is relaxed, but elegant without being overly rustic – a little bit of French country botanical. We wanted a table that looked warm and inviting, particularly for couples who want to consider a cooler weather wedding. It can be a wonderful time of year to get married and really enjoy those rich, decadent winter meals, with great wine and a roaring fire. We opted for warm, rich colours of reds, peach and coral, with hints of mint and deep purple for some added drama. We chose large opulent, heavily petalled blooms to convey the sense of understated elegance and to off-set the rich textures of the finer berries. We chose to do a swag style arrangement which is very on-trend and suits the French banquet style of dining.

Langverwagt is a historic farm with beautiful heritage buildings. As the reception cellars were built for practical use of storing wine, they are quite dark – which invites filling the rooms with lots of warm candlelight and rich warm colours. The farm has beautiful gardens around every corner and it was lovely to bring some of the garden into the venue as part of this shoot. And to make use of the venue’s permanent fairy light installations to add some romance to the look.

We wanted to use items that were effortlessly elegant, as if you had been invited to a French country chateau for this celebration. Almost as if the village had all rallied and lent all of their best family crystal, flatware and candlesticks to help the couple celebrate amongst those who had watched them grow up. The slight colour on the flatware added an interesting perspective instead of going for more neutral crockery. It also had a slightly raised pattern on it that gave it a more relaxed feel than if we had chosen something with a gold rim for example. The glasses from Woolworths were ideal they were very classic shapes with beautiful etching that conveys old tradition without the heaviness of a cut crystal glass.

We used a stone coloured linen tablecloth to keep the look relaxed and added a striped linen runner to give it a more French feel. The lighter coloured linen also served as a great backdrop for the deeper coloured flowers and complemented them, rather than competing with them. The gold cutlery was a little nod to some opulence and completed the look by adding to the warm colours of the décor.

We also chose the clear perspex Victoria chairs, which are based on the design of Louis chairs, again the French connection. But we opted for clear chairs, to let the opulence of the table do the talking, rather than confusing the look with more detail in the chairs. We considered using wooden chairs, but the clear perspex added a more contemporary feel, that was too old-world.

It is often made with mostly greenery, but in our case given the season and the abundance of beautiful berries (in red, purple, brown, green and pink tones), we used the berries as the main ingredient of the swag, with a little greenery for some definition. This was complemented with coral charm peonies (from Holland as they are in season in the Northern Hemisphere between May and August), but peonies are available locally at the end of October, but not necessarily in this colour), red tulips (these are in season in South Africa between June and October), red ranunculus (in season in South Africa from June to November), cream, red and peach roses (available all year round), foliage, all complemented by a mix of seasonal berries.

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.

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

Santa Rosa Beach Wedding

Beach Weddings

While Texas always makes a lovely location for a wedding, newlyweds Jade and Dan knew they wanted the laid-back essence a beach wedding would provide. The couple headed to Florida with Sweet Julep Photography and Stems on their list to make their dream day a reality, which they accomplished easily with so many talented hands nearby. Let’s take a look!

Santa Rosa Beach Wedding

From the photographer, Sweet Julep Photography: When Jade originally contacted us about her Santa Rosa Beach wedding, we were like, “Oh heck yes!” But then we learned that she and Dan didn’t even live near Florida. They lived in Ft Worth, TX! Destination weddings are our absolute favorite, and we were in love with Jade from the very beginning. So with only email and Facebook as a means to get to know each other, we anxiously waited for the day to come when we could finally talk face to face with this girl!

Highlands House was the most quaint little bed & breakfast nestled back in the trees only a couple blocks away from Gulf Place. HH had a beautiful bridal suite with the most gorgeous, soft light. The white aesthetic of the house made the perfect backdrop for all of Jade’s colorful details. We were obsessed with Jade’s personal style and loved the color palette that she chose for her day. Our favorite feature of the property had to be the boardwalk through the natural area to the beach! We loved that you could go from a modern B&B to a lush, green lawn to an overgrown boardwalk to the sandy Gulf coast. It wasn’t your every day, average beach rental!

The guys chose to get ready at a condo about a block down the road. We had the most amazing weather on this day, so we really enjoyed that we were able to walk back and forth between the two locations! Per usual, the guys were relaxed and watching baseball until about 30 minutes before the ceremony. Jade and Dan chose to not see each other before the ceremony, so we had to do most all of the photos after the ceremony, which made for some gorgeous images. Everyone was so light-hearted and happy that getting beautiful pictures was effortless. As we headed back to the house for the reception, we loved that you could stand on the porch and watch the whole setting on the lawn while still seeing the bright blue colors of the ocean. The sun dipped below the horizon pretty quickly, making the most perfect atmosphere for dancing under the string lights.

Stylish Greenpoint Loft Wedding

Modern Weddings

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

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

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

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!

This Calligrapher’s Wedding is Elegant Bliss

Elegant Weddings

What an absolute treat this wedding is! From the perspective of Allison Kuhn Photography, we get to see another talented wedding pro work on a wedding and it’s her very own. Bride Megan is a calligrapher so naturally, when it came to her own nuptials, she pulled out all of the stops and designed a stunner. Of course, all of the paper goods were amazing, and like the rest of the wedding, the florals by New Creations Flower Co. were beyond dreamy.

pink wedding bouquet - photo by Allison Kuhn Photography http://ruffledblog.com/this-calligraphers-wedding-is-elegant-bliss

From the photographer, Allison Kuhn Photography: Megan and Chris were married this past May at the Separk Mansion in North Carolina. Megan is a calligrapher and created and designed a gorgeous wedding. Every guest had watercolored escort card in addition to a silk ribbon at their table with their name calligraphed upon it. One of the most stunning details were Megan’s black, purple and gold invitation suite which she designed. To compliment all of Megan’s amazing details, Melanie of New Creations Flower Co. created a beautiful floral design upon the tables utilizing black candles throughout purple and dusty pink florals. The green ring that Megan wore was Chris’s mom’s ring who passed away several years ago. The couple was all smiles the whole day, and it couldn’t be a more perfect wedding.

Modern Downtown Savannah Wedding

Modern Weddings

Today’s wedding is hailing from the ever-beautiful Savannah, Georgia. When you have plenty of lovely sights and scenery in this town, it’s no wonder why Emily and Adam wanted to say their I Do’s here. Mackensey Alexander Photography captured the couple’s beautiful wedding day along with all of the very fine details with it. This warm-colored wedding adds such a heavy dash of sophistication and modernity, and what we love the most is that the couple came up with the design all on their own with Ivory + Beau helping them execute their vision.  They kept the color palette toned down and went for cool browns and soft neutrals, and then went bold with the flowers and enlisted Colonial House of Flowers for their skills. This elegant fête is one for the books!

savannah weddings - photo by Mackensey Alexander Photography http://ruffledblog.com/modern-downtown-savannah-wedding

From the bride, Emily: Adam and I wanted our wedding to feel like an intimate, joyful dinner with our friends and family. We wanted our wedding to feel formal yet understated, modern yet warm, and elegant yet relaxed. We wanted every moment to genuinely feel like us, and to reflect our joy. More than anything, we wanted to give our guests the opportunity to feel our love – both the love between Adam and me, and the love we have for all of them.

Bright + Modern NYC Wedding

Modern Weddings

Haley Sheffield

Buckle in, because we’re about to share the wedding of event and floral designer extraordinaire Juli Vaughn of Juli Vaughn Designs. With some planning expertise from Leah of Color Pop Events and the help of some of New York’s finest vendors, the wedding turned into a “color-filled, festive, whimsical event” in the bride’s own words. Thank you to Haley Sheffield for taking these wonderful images!

Bright + Modern NYC Wedding - photo by Haley Sheffield Photography event and floral design by Juli Vaughn Designs http://ruffledblog.com/bright-modern-NYC-wedding

From the bride, Juli: When Josh and I started planning our wedding, the first thing we realized was that we wanted all of our dearest friends present and involved and made to feel like our wedding was the most fun they’d ever had. It was the driving force in all of our details and all of our festivities. Because it was the second wedding for both of us, we chose to solely invite friends instead of family. We planned a weekend of events – Friday night tacos and karaoke instead of a rehearsal, morning yoga the day of the wedding to calm nerves and start the day off right, a double decker bus tour of NYC for the cocktail hour, and a pajama brunch at the hotel the day after the wedding.

Simi Valley Ranch Wedding

Modern Weddings

Located at the stunning Hummingbird Nest Ranch, newlyweds Sarah and Houman had their Simi Valley ranch wedding with the help of Louise & Third Events’ expertise and Wisteria Lane Flower Shop‘s floral know-how. Photographed by the amazing Brian Leahy Photography, the venue was done up so well that stepping into it post-arranging felt like you were stepping into old world Western Europe. Al fresco dining was the obvious choice here and luckily, mother nature kept herself at bay so no tents were needed. Bistro lights were strung around the reception and mahogany tables were outfitted with floral table runners of roses, ranunculus, and silver dollar eucalyptus.

Boho Pink Wedding Inspiration

Anna Routh

Modern boho brides, this one’s for you. The second we saw this shoot from Anna Routh and Kelley Event Design, full of every shade of pink and the crispest whites, we fell head over heels for the fresh and airy aesthetic. Add to that not one but two beautiful wedding gowns, and we’re forever in love!

boho pink wedding inspiration - photo by Anna Routh http://ruffledblog.com/rose-quartz-spring-wedding-inspiration

From the event planner and designer, Kelley Event Design: My good friend, Anna Routh, and I pulled together this amazing spring shoot with vendors from all over North Carolina (Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Gastonia and Charlotte) and it turned out really beautifully (if I do say so myself). Anna shot it all on film and the light that day was insane at Separk Mansion. We went with a fern and rose quartz theme picking up on spring colors and of course a nod to one of the Pantone colors of the year.

California Orange Grove Wedding

Modern Weddings

Last week we shared an inspiring wedding shoot in an orange grove, and today we’re bringing you a real wedding in one! Fondly Forever Photography and Hello Gem Events worked together on Becca and Michael’s big day, which took place completely outdoors and embraces the epitome of “California cool.”

California orange grove wedding - photo by Fondly Forever Photography http://ruffledblog.com/california-orange-grove-wedding

From the bride, Becca: Most importantly we wanted our guests to experience the beauty and warmth that we feel each time we visit our family ranch. Using this as our vision led us to make a number of design decisions alongside our wonderful planners Hello Gem such as: having all three parts of the wedding completely outdoors from the cocktail hour in the middle of the orange grove to the reception in a field under the stars. We felt this vision really came to life in many ways – our bartenders, for example, embraced the cocktail hour in the grove, spontaneously picking oranges from the tree and making fresh screwdrivers for guests!

Fuchsia and Emerald Wedding at Villa Woodbine

Michelle March

The color combination of fuchsia and emerald green makes my heart sing oh-so-much, so you can imagine how excited I was to see this wedding from Michelle March and Sullivan Owen Floral & Event Design. The rich colors play off each other beautifully, and accent the couple’s romantic ceremony and reception more perfectly than we could imagine. Congratulations to the newlyweds, Joann and Nate!

From the bride, Joann: I envisioned a garden wedding with old world influences. The venue was my inspiration. I chose bridesmaid dresses that matched the lush greenery and palms. I saw the giant oak tree in the garden, and wanted to transform it into the backdrop of where we were to get married with Spanish moss and romantic florals.

Emerald green and fuchsia were our main colors. I think my head table really encompasses the look of our wedding. We used vintage lace runners on the rustic farm tables, mercury glass and rose gold candle votives and vases, and assorted Vintage candlesticks with taper candles. We had a Vintage postcard station for guests to sign instead of a guest book, which one of my bridesmaids gradually mailed to me throughout our first year of marriage. Used Grandma’s vintage bell collection – one on each table for guests to “ring the bell to see kisses from the new Mr. and Mrs.”

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Try to have fun with your partner in making the plans. My husband is really into music so I let him take account for all things music related and he loved being able to contribute to the planning of our wedding day. I love florals and had so much fun being able to work with my florist to make my vision come true!
