A California Wedding Inspired by the Forest

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Martina Micko

Newlyweds Maryanne and Matt wanted a wedding that showcased the beauty of Southern California, and that’s precisely what they got with this woodland celebration put together by Sweet Emilia Jane and The Little Branch. The day kicked off with a tree-covered ceremony in the woods with sunlight peeking through, and culminated with a family-style dinner under bistro lights — all captured by Martina Micko Photography!

This Elegant Wedding Has An Amazing Escort Card Display

Shoda Love

It has to be said that we are absolutely in awe of every real wedding we come across and this darling California wedding from the lens of Shoda Love has been added to that list. It’s full of lovely details (like adorable pets and fun song lyric signage!) and the planning and design cleverness of CCL Weddings & Events, paired with the floral stylings of Art With Nature. What we’re really mesmerized by is the escort card display. It’s so unique and definitely a wedding conversation piece!

Fields of Gold Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Let’s kick this inspiration off by saying that a sprawling field is always bound to produce great ideas and great pictures, and Lindsey Gage Photography certainly did not disappoint. With a well-loved song by Sting in mind, the elite vendor list–comprised of The Blooming Bud who was in charge of florals, Kathryn Pederson Events who coordinated the details, and Cherished Rentals leading the design and styling–took to their outdoor canvas and dressed it up beautifully. A lovely farm table stood tall and atop it was a centerpiece with rich colors, also found in the bride’s wild bouquet and that must-replicate wreath. We’d gladly stroll through this field anytime if this inspiration is what we would stumble across.

Romantic Hindu and Humanist Wedding Weekend

Dominique Bader

When we see the words “wedding weekend” pop up, we’re automatically enamored by what’s to come in the photos. Dominique Bader was in charge of documenting Sundari and Andy’s festivities and it was kicked off by the warm and vibrant Hindu, Sri-Lankan Tamil wedding. Following their first celebration, their Humanist wedding was dressed in lovely shades of white and grey with delightful additions of green thanks to the creations by Floribunda Rose. With a gala like this, Always Andri Wedding Design was on hand to offer not only smooth planning but fantastic design as well.

Autumn Wedding for Two Middle School Sweethearts

Rustic Weddings

The sweetest details and couple storyline are splashed all over this beautiful Alex Lasota Photography wedding. Not only does it have sweet and pink whimsical details designed and planned by Tin Sparrow Events with florals by Simplified Celebrations, Jordan and Dyllan’s school-age love story is one for the books and it definitely gets two thumbs up from us with ooh’s and aww’s thrown in as well. It’s clear from Alex’s fantastic shots how overjoyed these two lovebirds are to finally be marrying one another, and there’s no better place to say their I Do’s than with these stunning ranch views in the background. Heartfelt weddings are just the best!

Outdoor Bohemian Colorado Wedding

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.

Yes way, rosé! This baby shower dreamed and designed by Dream a Little Dream Events, I Heart Table Art and The Black Posy is totally unprecedented and utterly femme. “In Full Bloom” was the mood of the day, and botanical elements in blush, peach, rose gold and copper were dispersed throughout this greenhouse in all the right places. This is our first baby shower on Ruffled, and we’re pretty excited about it! We can’t get enough of the rose gold details and how this setting would look equally beautiful for a wedding. All captured by LoveHer Photography.

Secret Garden Inspired Australian Wedding

Garden Weddings

Photos by:

Lara Hotz

Be still, our beating hearts. It’s a rare occasion that we’re left speechless, but this captivating Australian wedding shot by Lara Hotz has done just that! With a sophisticated palette of white, green and gold, this black-tie fete gives us an enchanted garden meets glam opulence vibe that we are simply LIVING for. The bride, Dominique arrived at the ceremony in a vintage automobile, but turned the corner for her grand entrance in a mode of transportation with quite more literal horsepower. Her ethereal illusion dress stole the show as she approached her groom, Sunny, beneath a flowy canopy + leafy chandelier. The reception that followed was held in a clear-top tent filled with long family-style farm tables and foliage galore by Cate Locke Botanica! Dominique’s reception gown features exquisite beading and an overall mystic design. Can you say haute couture? Prepare to be stunned by this almost too good to be true celebration designed by White Rabbit Projects and the bride herself!

Blush Pink Wedding at Carondelet House

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.

Today’s real wedding gives a whole new meaning to “the great outdoors.” Oregon couple Meng and Max celebrated their marriage beneath a woodsy canopy that was heavenly to behold. Hazelwood Photo embraced every natural backdrop (yes, that includes towering waterfalls and lakeside cliffs!) and Floral Sunshine was there to spruce up the bridal party with flower crowns for all. We especially love the way Gather Event Planning & Consultation and Something Borrowed tied in details like the gold speckled cake and the oversized chalkboard in lieu of paper programs.

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!

Grab some tissues, cause this one is a stunner! Equal parts whimsical and sweet, this real wedding between the Winnie and Jose has us smiling from ear to ear. Posies in pink garnish an impressive twig arbor and bouquets of peonies, roses, hydrangeas and hypericum berries abound, thanks to the handiwork of Botanica Lifestyle + Design. Marin Kristine demonstrates a tremendous eye for detail as she gives each DIY element a bit of permanence in her dreamy photographs. Just look at those tea leaf favors with personalized calligraphy from the bride herself! Leave it up to Tan Weddings & Events to coordinate such a marvelous celebration.

Park Winters Garden Wedding - http://ruffledblog.com/park-winters-garden-wedding

From the bride, Winnie: Our wedding vision was romantic with a touch of vintage. We also included a traditional tea ceremony before the western ceremony. The tea ceremony was important for us because it was a way to show respect to our parents and older family members. We invited family and very close friends only. I wanted to keep it small and intimate and I wanted all guests to enjoy every single moment of the night.

Tangerine and Soft Blue Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

This is one color palette that really sticks out at you and with just the right maneuvering, you could certainly pull it off for all four seasons. One July Photography showed us the beauty of a vibrant tangerine and blue wedding shoot designed by Elm Street Social and we haven’t been able to shake off the elegant glam vibes this inspiration is radiating. Wallflower Designs not only sought out the prettiest sunset-colored orange garden roses and delicate pale blue hydrangeas, but also added in lovely dashes of seasonal fruits like apricots, cherries, and even an aubergine-hued plum for some color depth. We love this editorial’s versatility!

wedding ceremony decor - http://ruffledblog.com/tangerine-and-soft-blue-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, One July Photography: We know everyone has seen the 2016 Pantone Colors of the year – but have you seen it with a healthy dose of TANGERINE? From the vintage corvette, to the masterful floral textures, and hand drawn stationery elements – the romantic color palette was echoed throughout the day. Some fun details included: a great DIY seating card project (all you need is a copper pen, marble backsplash tiles, and some gorgeous handwriting!), a fabulous short haired bridal hairstyle, and a fruit and floral filled tablescape paired with painted church pews. Marla from Wallflower Designs is the queen of floral texture. She created the perfect blend of vibrant seasonal fruit with an eclectic array of florals. The brides bouquet was an organically composed masterpiece! Ashley from Paper Love Club created a beautiful suite of products: invitation suite, menu, hand-drawn map, just married sign, and more. Each element incorporated fine paper, watercolor, copper leaf, and custom calligraphy.

Fun tip: Our stylist, Jen from Elm Street Social, purchased a set of hexagon marble tiles typically used in a backsplash. These backsplash tiles were transformed into escort/seating cards when Ashley added gorgeous hand lettering with a copper pen. The romantic dress was created by up-and-coming designer Ellyn Goodman. The illusion back is a showstopper. Carly Pribich created a fresh-faced look with makeup application and hair styling from Jen Spair added the perfect balance of soft feminine romance and modern appeal. Check out that hair for short-haired brides! 

Heritage Prairie Farm is a farm-to-table venue nestled in the Chicago suburbs. This gorgeous location provided the perfect backdrop for a charming, romantic, and organic setting. Jen from Elm Street Social brought the vision together with her impeccable styling. She introduced perfectly paired tones, textures, and styling concepts that are fresh yet timeless. This real-life couple emoted so much JOY during this inspiration shoot. We are so blessed to capture this chapter in their love story!

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.

Dinosaur Inspired Wedding at Fernbank Museum

Whimsical Weddings

What better venue for two self-proclaimed “big nerds” than a museum of natural history? Jade + Matthew Take Pictures captured the wedding day of Jackie and Jon, who filled their day with bright and colorful decor (need we point out the amazing floral design by Artistic Flowers?) to complement the museum’s own architecture. Don’t miss a single second of this one!

Dinosaur Inspired Wedding at Fernbank Museum - http://ruffledblog.com/dinosaur-inspired-wedding-at-fernbank-museum

From the bride, Jackie: Jon and I both have a lot of family, so we knew from the start we would be having a large wedding. With that in mind, we wanted a setting that would be large enough to suit all our guests and still have a lot of personality. We looked at a number of hotel ballrooms that all looked supremely bland, so the architecture of the museum was refreshing… Oh, and we are both big nerds (Jon just got his PhD in Computer Science and I am a major pop culture and science fiction fan) and we love dinosaurs, so that helped. =)

You will notice from the photos that we wanted a lot of bright, beautiful summer flowers — especially because I had originally hoped for an outdoor wedding, which ended up being impractical in Atlanta in July. The colors were actually picked to match the watercolor image on our invitations. Jon and I were living in New York while the wedding was being planned so Wayne, our wedding planner, designer and florist, chose all the color combinations and planned all the table layouts, including the glassware, tablecloths, chairs and a variety of other things I never would have thought of on my own.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Our strongest advice is to look at a lot of photos for ideas and go into any conversation prepared with your own opinions. Pinterest helped us find a lot of creative direction for small details. Definitely don’t be afraid to listen to others’ ideas for creative direction, but if you find something you love, stick to it!

We had no real recessional music because we recessed to the sound of everyone ringing dozens of unique antique bells my mom had painstakingly sought out one by one over the past year from antique markets and junk fairs and put under every seat as a surprise. Very fun play on Jon’s last name. :)

Modern Highlands Wedding Editorial

Wedding Design

This beautiful wedding editorial is just the thing we need for this September day, and how perfect is the styling for the upcoming change of the season? Kati Hewitt Photography and Love Birds Vintage Rentals & Styling collaborated on this Scotland-inspired shoot, bringing in all of the classic elements of the jaw-dropping elements of the Highlands terrain with a hint of modernity. Bride & Bloom drew in some of the most awe-inducing, berry-toned blooms and foliage for the arrangements; great complementary pieces for the earthy feel of this entire shoot.

From the photographer, Kati Hewitt Photography: There are few places in Europe as beautifully enchanting as the Highlands of Scotland, a fact not lost on the Mother-Daughter design team at the helm of Love Birds Vintage Rentals & Styling. “We lived in Scotland when Tiffani was a teenager,” explained Bridgette, “so we brought a lot of items home with us when we returned to the States. There is something about the history and character of those pieces that shaped not just this shoot, but our overall design aesthetic and how we approach wedding design in general. Scotland is all about history, and in a sense, weddings are as well. We want to help our clients create spaces that speak to their own story; their own history, and their families’ histories. That’s what weddings are, after all, taking his history and her history, combining them and then building upon that to create your own.”

We took the idea of quintessential Scotland, with its intense green hills, beautiful ivy-lined rose gardens and stark gray architecture and then tempered it with a modern touch. There’s a lot of that going on in the region as well, always a push and pull between the traditional and the modern, and that idea extends to American wedding design as well. We really wanted to keep that traditional element, that sort of wink to the past, without creating a design that felt stuffy. Of course there are elements like the tartan throws that are decidedly traditional, but when you look at Kelli, her look is much more edgy. We wanted to show brides that it is possible to combine both in a way that works.

Working with Kati Hewitt of Kati Hewitt Photography, they were able to capture the essence of Scotland without the 8 hour plane ride. “Olde Dobbin Station was the perfect backdrop, and Kati captured it perfectly. It’s one of the oldest structures in the area dating back to the late 1890s. We knew we wanted to capitalize on that for this shoot. When we started adding in all the details, it just took us right back home.”

Modern Romance Inspiration with Pops of Jewel Tones

Wedding Design

This wedding inspiration editorial has everything: a stunning backdrop that could double as fine art, an impromptu boudoir session, and a lovely modern grey tablescape with flashes of deep plum. It’s all so brilliant and we’re so thrilled Jillian Rose Photography snapped it all. Ede by Jacqueline was smitten by the location of the shoot and knew the exact direction to go to complement the outdoor space, highlighting the delightful architectural features. Autumn Vine Design thought to pair the various shades of blue with shades of purple, and it was such a swell move since the floral arrangements stick out so beautifully amidst all of the design elements.

From the event planner, Ede by Jacqueline: The venue itself was so incredibly charming and unique. I loved Ebell’s high ceilings and unique chandeliers that were offering that outdoor feel. I thought having stronger jewel toned colors would pop in this space. Also, with Ebell’s stunning bridal suite, I knew I had to incorporate a soft and romantic boudoir session.

A boudoir session doesn’t always have to be a separate day of shooting. Don’t hesitate to ask your photographer about getting some choice snapshots of you before the heyday of hair and makeup come around. Pick a great spot with nature lighting and wear your favorite lingerie and most importantly, relax and let the camera snap those natural smiles!

During the planning process, I came across a stunning art piece made by Christine Olmstead and I knew I had to incorporate it in the shoot somehow. It was definitely not easy shipping it across the country, however I knew this would make this shoot come alive. I’ve become a fan of using stunning art pieces as backdrops for weddings, it can be so versatile and unique!

Industrial Meets Earthy Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

It’s so much fun to blend styles and design concepts for wedding editorials, and here we have another beauty to share from the lens of Gray Door Photography. It’s got equal parts modern and industrial mixed with the right amount of organic elements, and these ideas work so effortlessly together. We’re squealing over how Rustic Roots Design created the ideal arrangements for this styled shoot and put the emphasis on the foliage, allowing those dreamy, lavender and blush colored roses to peek through and add some romance. This indoors-meets-outdoors inspiration is so mesmerizing!

modern wedding ideas - photo by Gray Door Photography http://ruffledblog.com/industrial-meets-earthy-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Gray Door Photography: Providence, Rhode Island is known for the historic preservation of its mill buildings. With a team of local entrepreneur vendors working to bring our vision to life, this white-washed mill felt like the perfect place to bring earthy and industrial together. Our inspiration grew from our team’s fondness of intimate, thoughtful weddings, playful yet romantic details, and a serious love of texture. This shoot is for the bohemian bride who values those same things – down to the very last detail.

The watercolor invitation suite was hand torn, painted, and lettered. The headpieces, sash, and garter were all handmade to complement our gorgeous silk chiffon, organic cotton gown, which was also made here in America. Each piece of furniture is vintage or antique restored to preserve its beauty and character. Even the donuts in our pretty little donut tower were hand crafted by a local donut shop! The floral elements (composed of a variety of thistles, blackberry branches, bay leaf branches, queen anne’s lace, ranunculus, smoke bush, olive branches, succulents, and a few other blooms) were perfectly overgrown, bringing the outdoors in. We believe your wedding should reflect you and your love. This wedding inspiration shoot is for those brides and grooms whose love is true, sweet, romantic, playful, a little bit wild, and a little bit free.

Chic Wedding with a Lush Floral Wall Backdrop

Elegant Weddings

If you’re ready to inject a little bit of chicness into your day, there’s no need to look any further than Yeva and Brett’s stylish California wedding. Wanting to add a show-stopping element to her day, Yeva and her friends set to work making an incredibly lush floral wall backdrop to accent the couple’s sweetheart table, and we frankly couldn’t be more obsessed with it. Everything was captured by Chad Annie Photography, and the inspiring floral decor came by way of Nora’s Designed Flowers!

Chic Wedding with a Lush Floral Wall Backdrop

From the photographers, Chad Annie Photography: It was an honor shooting this stunning bride and groom’s Wedding. The Bride, Yeva, designed the whole wedding herself and the groom played an amazing role in helping her execute everything the day of. Their sweetheart table was one of the best we’ve seen, complete with the lushest DIY floral wall backdrop.

They married at Saint Kateri Catholic Church where the family performed a traditional unity candle lighting. Cocktail hour and reception was held at the Newhall Mansion, a private estate that dates back to the 1800s. Yeva and Brett’s love for each other was clear. The Best Man gave a speech saying that “Yeva was the Girl of Brett’s dreams,” and by seeing the way he looked at her, there was no doubt this was true.

Heavenly Wedding Inspiration with a Floral Swing

Wedding Design

Gauzy and dreamy, this Avec L’Amour Photography and Delighted Images shoot is the bee’s knees. Thuy from Avec L’Amour Photography orchestrated the fine details of the shoot and went for a romantic, carefree, and innocent setup, with the sweetest floral swing we’ve seen. Pineapple Petals Studio added to the mix by having heaps and heaps of the prettiest pink fleurs: bougainvillea, roses, tulips, and peonies, to name a few. We can never resist falling for an ultra-feminine shoot like this one!

From the photographer and event designer, Avec L’Amour Photography: California has a natural, golden beauty that is, in one aspect, so harsh, yet also so mesmerizing. The Bay Area is surrounded by golden hills that are often untouched, but only an arms length away. We, a group of Bay Area creative wedding professionals, decided to take a mid-season respite and refill our creative cup with a dream shoot that features some new and different things with which to inspire our clients. This shoot was photographed on both film for its dreamy qualities and digital for expediency. We combined the mediums in this gallery to show brides the seamless blending of hybrid photography, which allows for both cost effective services and true film range.

Before iPads and Pokemon GO, tree swings and warm afternoon breezes were one of the best memories of childhood summers. The quintessential symbol of carefree and happy, we incorporated a handmade rope swing with gorgeous vining bougainvillea and passion flower as a focal point for our model. To round out the look, we added vintage lanterns styled with tree of heaven clusters and more bougainvillea. Finding a hill with a lone, sturdy oak tree to provide an arm and canopy was the finishing touch that made it all feel romantic and heavenly!

The model’s pink champagne two piece dress is perfectly elegant yet playful with the beaded, French vintage inspired cropped camisole and a skirt made of layers upon layers of soft, lightweight tulle. Her light coverage, natural makeup look and loosely arrange low up-do accented with gorgeous handmade hair pieces gives her an organic, effortless look of beauty. Two bouquets were made to compliment this bride’s look — a sweet, but understated romantic arrangement and a more vibrant and textured bouquet. Both looks use the same color family, but feature different levels of vibrancy. Similarly, the menu and invitations showcase a watercolor floral scheme with gold flecked hand lettering to update traditional wedding paper design.

The tablescape is the real life embodiment of our vision of a perfect romantic dinner al fresco. Vintage French bistro chairs were given romantic flare when adorned with olive leaves and budding olives, while delicate, paper thin fuchsia bougainvillea added a feminine touch. The overflowing centerpiece of loosely arranged varieties of roses, tulips, tree of heaven, raspberries, and sweet peas made the rosé wine and lavender buds that much sweeter to sip! Because every dinner should end on a sweet note, the simple, two layered cake decorated with the most organic spray of jasmine vines and a single dusky pink lisianthus could not be more enticing!

Colorful Modern Palm Springs Wedding

Modern Weddings

Gideon Photography

Setting eyes on this wedding, we immediately thought it was just so fun: fun to look at and we’re sure that it was fun to be at, too! Gideon Photography captured this brightly-colored and modern Palm Springs wedding to our delight and it was clear that no design stone was left unturned by Amorology when it came to Katie Leclerc (of TV’s “Switched at Birth”) and Brian Habecost’s West Coast wedding. Pops of color were all over the place, from the darling bridesmaids’ dresses and bouquets by Twigg Botanicals, to that ultra-creative dessert table. This wedding is a bright pastel lover’s dream!

From the event designers, Amorology: We teamed up with Backup Backdrops to create three fun displays for ceremony, escort and dessert. Our simple ceremony wall with Plexiglas arrows alluded to our couple’s love of cycling and the idea of sharing the road together. Inspired by their love for playing Cards Against Humanity, we couldn’t help but make a “Katie and Brian Against Humanity” escort display! We had Peanut Press help us design and create oversized playing cards that served as the table names and had fill in the blank statements. Smaller playing cards were placed at our escort wall and held the guests names on one side and a noun listed on the other side. Guests were invited to find their table by pairing their card with the best matched table name. How fun is that? It was such a great way to get guests moving, talking and laughing at their seats! For dessert, we collaborated with Hey There Cupcake and Backup Backdrops again to display an array of yummy treats underneath a bicycle backdrop as another nod to Katie and Brian’s love for biking together.

During cocktail hour, guests enjoyed Cactus Coolers, colorful popsicles from Si Paletas and delicious bites from Room Forty. The popsicles were a life saver during the hot summer weather in Palm Springs! For the head dining table, we created a custom table runner hand painted by Peanut Press and adorned with living fruit and florals by Twigg Botanicals. And the mid-century tables from Folklore Vintage Rentals were a perfect match for the tabletop prettiness from Hostess Haven. Bicycle shaped save-the-dates from Pitbulls and Posies tied our cycling theme together and were complimented by bright, geometric custom stationary by Peanut Press.

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.

We call this type of arrangement a swag or a floral runner. 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!

Romantic Redwoods Wedding

Rustic Weddings

The California redwoods are such impressive creations of nature, and in all of their majesty, it’s no wonder why so many couples choose to get hitched there. It’s gorgeous! Victoria Carlson Photography snapped Lindsay and Eugene’s romantic wedding day to our delight. For color choices, Lindsay wanted to keep the focal point on all of the organic elements around, so a clean neutral palette with hints of greys and blues were important. There’s nothing more timeless than a pairing of white and green florals and root & riot did a fantastic job creating such complementary pieces. We give this wedding an A-plus!

California weddings - http://ruffledblog.com/romantic-redwoods-wedding

From the bride, Lindsay: Whenever my husband and I talked about getting married, we always knew we would say “I do” beneath the redwoods. My husband and I love being outdoors in nature, but one of our favorite places to be is amongst the trees. We wanted something simple, elegant, and timeless, yet also laid back and relaxed. My husband and I are not formal people by any means, so it was important for us to have an environment that was comfortable for our guests. Whenever people would ask me about the vibe of my wedding I would tell them, “it’s going to be a magical, romantic forest wedding!” I really feel like I accomplished this! But some more adjectives I used to describe the day were: ethereal and woodsy. Before I purchased ANYTHING I would make sure it stayed true to these descriptions.

Bouquet recipeMock-orange, white roses, white peonies, ferns… to name a few! My florists were amazing! I sent them a few inspiration photos that I found off Pinterest, and my task to them was to make me a beautiful, big, bouquet full of white flowers and ferns.

I chose a neutral color scheme and I feel like that perfectly complemented the gorgeous setting and the feel of the day. I knew I wanted my bridesmaids in different dresses and different colors, but was still somewhat particular on the dresses they chose. I ended up giving them 10-15 different dresses to choose from and everyone chose the dress that I wanted for them (without me saying a thing!). I thought they all looked beautiful! For the men, I think my groom looks so handsome in navy, so we found a gorgeous slate blue tux for him. He wanted to be in something different than his groomsmen, so we chose grey suits with navy ties for the rest of the guys!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Stay true to you. It sounds cliché, but it is so easy to lose sight of you and your partner during the craziness of wedding planning. Remember that this day is about the two of you and the celebration of your love and commitment to each other – that is all that matters. I loved my wedding day and it went perfect, despite all the things that actually “went wrong” (like it raining on wedding day for our outdoor wedding!) But what I loved the most and what I remember the most are all the amazing moments shared between my husband and me.

Don’t worry about making everyone else happy and just worry about making you and your groom as happy as you can be! Also, we highly encourage a first look. I know it’s not traditional, but aside from saying our vows during our ceremony, our first look was the most special moment. I can’t even explain in words how beautiful that moment was, and one of the only moments of the day where it was just the two of us.

Intimate Thailand Resort Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Come and take a minute or two to check out this pretty in pink (and purple and aqua!) wedding in Thailand. Honestly, you’ll probably need more than a few minutes once you start browsing through Blush Photography‘s beautiful captures of Lynn and Matt’s wedding in tropical paradise. To amplify the romance, IAMFLOWER adorned the sweetest pink and ivory blooms to anything, including the sweet floral crowns the bridesmaids and the flower girl wore! Not only are the landscape views out of this world, but The Wedding Bliss Thailand certainly did a number on the styling of this wedding; it’s as dreamy as you’d expect a tropical beach wedding would be with your nearest and dearest.

From the bride, Lynn: We met at work… our d­esks being next to ea­ch other, we locked e­yes and the rest as t­hey say, is history! ­I thought Matt was v­ery sweet on my first­ day at work, plus he­’s easy on the eyes t­oo! I found out years­ later that he told o­ne of our common frie­nds that he thought I­ was “well fit” (a British slang referring to attractiveness, not physical fitness). Matt surprised me by ­organising a romantic­ beach picnic with 3 ­course meal at Canggu­ beach in Bali. He ha­d a small bag with hi­m the whole time and ­I thought that we wou­ld be staying the nig­ht at Hotel Tugu. As ­the sun set, he took ­out a photo album tha­t he had made earlier­. It was very sweet a­nd romantic. On the l­ast page of the album­, there was an envelo­pe and inside was a s­mall note with the in­scription “Will you m­arry me?” in tiny han­dwriting. Matt then ­took out the ring, an­d got on his knees to­ propose. Of course, ­I said Yes immediatel­y!

We have always liked ­Thailand, having trav­elled there a few tim­es and Matt has spent­ a few months there d­uring his gap year. W­e decided on Phuket b­ecause it’s beautiful­ and easily accessible for our family and ­friends that were tra­velling from Australi­a, UK and South East ­Asia. Also, my family­ are mostly in Austra­lia and Matt’s family­ are based in UK, so ­Thailand was the half­ way point for our fa­milies. Destination w­eddings always feel m­ore relaxed and enjoy­able, guests are on h­oliday mode and not w­orrying about work. W­e fell in love with T­he Naka Phuket resort­, it had everything w­e needed to create ou­r perfect dream weddi­ng.

We had just fin­ished our first dance­ and speeches and so ­could relax! We had a­lso kept the firework­s as a big surprise f­or months and loved s­eeing the reaction on­ our guests’s faces w­hen the fireworks lit­ up the sky over the ­beach.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? I highly recommend employing the service of a wedding­ planner to help orga­nize your wedding, th­ey really do take som­e of the hassle out o­f planning a wedding,­ especially a destina­tion wedding where yo­u may not be familiar­ with their local ven­dors. Some further a­dvice we received fro­m friends that are ma­rried, try to enjoy t­he day as the day wil­l whizz by very fast.­ Also, keep your phon­es at home on your we­dding day to reduce a­ny further stress and­ distractions, or ask­ one of your bridesma­ids or groomsmen to t­ake care of those mat­ters for you. During ­the ceremony, it’s a ­good idea for your ce­lebrant to announce t­o guests that mobile ­phones/cameras are fo­rbidden during the ce­remony, to ensure tha­t everyone are focuse­d and not distracted ­with trying to take n­ice photographs (whic­h you already have a ­professional photogra­pher to do that job for you!)

From the wedding planners, The Wedding Bliss Thailand: Lynn and Matt’s wedding was a very personal, intimate affair set at a beautiful beachfront luxury resort in Thailand. With their playful, yet nature-loving and romantic personalities, we created a wedding designed to reflect who they are: from a romantic ceremony in pink and purple tones, a cocktail reception where guests enjoyed champagne and writing messages to a happy couple on a vintage typewriter, to the dinner, decorated with tender flowers, playful little cacti as a name cards, and CDs with soulful playlist, created personally by the bride and the groom as favours to their guests.

French Couture Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

What a sweetly-crafted wedding editorial by Ryan & Alyssa Photography this is! It’s got a brilliant story behind it, a romantic design by Bespoken that is so very French, and the perfect floral decorations to match the entire concept by Kate Asire Flowers: a vision of pink, roses, and lushness all over. Be right back; going to dig up a chic beret and start daydreaming of France.

French wedding inspiration - photo by Ryan & Alyssa Photography http://ruffledblog.com/french-couture-wedding-inspiration

From the photographers, Ryan & Alyssa Photography: When Nicole and Alex envisioned their wedding day, they had no idea how much their past would direct their future. You see, they first met while studying abroad in Paris for a summer. While they were both cultivating their love for French culture, the language, and the people, they found themselves also falling in love with each other. And when they returned to the City of Light 3 years later, Alex proposed to Nicole with his grandmother’s canary diamond! For their wedding, they couldn’t imagine not embracing the culture and style of the city that first drew them together.

They chose to get married at the Venue at Postcard from Paris, in Nicole’s hometown, a place that embodied the soft, romantic pallet and French couture design these two so enjoyed. Alex & Nicole desired a small, intimate ceremony and celebration, and the attention they paid to details carried through from the ceremony design to the Louboutin shoes Nicole wore. Alex & Nicole wrote their vows in French, and had those vows hand-lettered to a custom parchment backdrop for their ceremony. For their reception, Alex & Nicole chose a family styled design complete with personalized escort cards, dinner lighting, and a gorgeous floral garland in muted, romantic tones. And they celebrated with a glass of rosé and a gorgeous blush lace design cake with sugar florals. Blush macarons with edible pearls were a guest favorite, a nod to one of their favorite French treats. Enjoy this intimate indoor wedding inspiration!

Romantic Philadelphia Horticulture Center Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Winter weddings can have their tricky moments to plan, but Carrie and Mike carried out their Philadelphia wedding day with such finesse and Redfield Photography skillfully captured all of the goodness on camera. We love that they chose a greenhouse setting and brought in beautiful, deep, jewel red colors and floral arrangements by their event and floral designer, Q|A Events; it brought a fun, vibrant feel to the whole event while keeping in line with the season. This is definitely one ultra-creative way to do a cool-seasoned wedding!

winter brides - photo by Redfield Photography http://ruffledblog.com/romantic-philadelphia-horticulture-center-wedding

From the bride, Carrie: We envisioned a warm, romantic, bohemian feel for the wedding.  We originally wanted something laid back, but when we picked a winter wedding date we decided to dress it up a little bit while trying to keep the bohemian feel. We didn’t really have a color scheme, but we chose marsala and berry tones for our flowers because we thought it would compliment the greenery in the venue as well as the bridal party attire. We didn’t do any DIY projects, but I worked very closely with the event designers and I think we designed something amazing together!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Start as early as possible and stay organized! Also, when things get overwhelming, make sure you take some time alone with your fiancé to have some fun together. It’s simple, but I think it was the only thing that kept me sane.

Anna Delores

For some honest-to-goodness, girly-girl wedding inspiration, you really have to look no further than this beautiful berry-toned fête coming straight from the lens of Anna Delores. Nikki and Rob chose a day of sparkle, the dreamiest shades of pink and purple you could imagine, and a classic country feel. We tip our hats off to Vanessa Noel Events for making sure all of the loveliness of their big day was everything they imagined!

From the event designer, Vanessa Noel Events: Nikki is a girly girl–pink, sparkle, and false lashes are a few of this girl’s favorite things! She and Rob are also both small town dwellers who love the slower pace of a little country living. They chose Historic Seven Sycamores Ranch as the backdrop for their sweet wedding and we set out to glam it up just the right amount.

Nikki and Rob wanted their wedding to feel fun, vibrant, and family-centric so we chose to embrace the colors of spring and created a color palette of berry tones that was both cheerful and dramatic. We used accents of metallic gold, ruffles, and a chandelier to give just the perfect touch of girly glam. We played a lot with combining linens to provide extra interest and texture with the head table as the main focal point draped in a fun and flirty ruffled linen.

One of my favorite details was the water goblets at the head table. Nikki’s mother is an avid collector of the goblets from the famous Madonna Inn. As a nod to her, we used her collection on the head table and Nikki hand-picked a colored goblet for each member of the bridal party. As a tribute to Nikki’s German Mennonite heritage, baskets of homemade zweibach (German bread) greeted guests as they sat at their tables and each guest took home a box of pfeffernüsse, made from her grandmother’s recipe.

Rain on your wedding day is never a fun reality, but in this case, it couldn’t have worked out more beautifully. Instead of the original plan to use the garden space for dinner, guests dined in the venue’s glass barn, which provided a gorgeous backdrop of rustic elegance. The various wood tones throughout the venue–in the glass barn and in the garden, were also inspirations for keeping the design down to earth and comfortable. Accents like wood crates and dark wood chairs contrasted the metallic and luxe details for a perfectly balanced design.

Language of Flowers Wedding Editorial

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.

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.

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.

Moss-Filled Michigan Wedding

Romantic Weddings

If you’re looking to get inspired by a wedding with a stunningly clean and green wedding palette, Agnes and Jeff’s Michigan wedding is it. Shot by MorningWild Photography, it’s got these whimsical and romantic details that had us wanting more and more. Rebecca from Ideal Events & Design sought to bring Agnes’s elegant woodland wedding ideas to life and it’s quite safe to say she achieved that goal along with Damsel Floral‘s unbelievably good centerpieces. Those glimmers of peach florals in the arrangements were the perfect touch of color!

From the planner, Rebecca from Ideal Events & DesignI was thrilled when Agnes reached out to me to work on her upcoming wedding to Jeff. As an art director, Agnes had a wonderful vision for their wedding day and I was thrilled to help bring her elegant woodland wedding to life. Agnes had already chosen a beautiful location, a private white barn at Bieker Farms, which is nestled between beautiful woodlands and an apple orchard, so we began working on securing the rest of her vendors and bringing together all of the elements of the day.

Of course the location was such a feature of the design for this wedding – Agnes wanted to highlight the woods that surrounded the property because she and Jeff often escape on weekends to family woodlands in Northern Michigan. Incorporating moss (collected from the family land) and ferns was a way to bring their life into the design elements. The bride and her friends spent a day creating the gorgeous moss covered sign to hang behind the bar and ferns were featured in the centerpieces by Damsel Floral. Agnes even created a fern logo to use throughout the wedding stationery.

As we began to build the day, it was always evident that Agnes and Jeff kept their guests at the forefront of their minds. They truly wanted everyone in attendance to feel part of their celebration – from ensuring polka music was played for her Polish family members to serving family style meals to encourage conversation – so many decisions focused on their family and friends. As the evening went on and the celebration lasted well into the night with late night pizzas and a sparkler send off for the newlyweds, I do believe their guests enjoyed every minute of it!
