Is there any better way to kick off the weekend than with some beautiful floral inspiration? We think not, so we’re sharing these images by Carography Studios from Vero Workshop to get things started off right. Ellie Alexandra and Lindsay Coletta Designs were tasked with event and floral design, bringing the romance full circle.

Historic Garden Wedding Inspiration

Today’s inspiration shoot could best be summed up as “timeless traditional with a modern twist.” A talented team of vendors including Candice Adelle Photography, L.Havard Events, Social Supply Design and Decor, and Sidra Forman all came together to create a lush scene with a classic aesthetic but with updated accents, such as a table frame with hanging lights, a painted backdrop for a beverage display, and a dreamy bouquet full of the freshest colors in the wedding world. Let’s jump in!

Chic Niagara-on-the-Lake Vineyard Wedding

Rustic Weddings

It won’t come as much of a surprise, but whenever we hear a bride wanted an outdoor wedding with fresh flowers at every turn and a bouquet that “looks like [the bride] just stepped out of the garden,” we get a little extra pep in our step. Bloom & Co. did not disappoint as floral designer for Adriana and Mike’s Canada wedding, while Blush & Bowties helped implement all the little details to make the day perfect for the couple. Simply Lace Photography captured it all, so let’s take a look at their images!

Romantic Blush and Burgundy Phoenix Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Time and again we’re amazed by what a simple pop of color can do. Lacey and Talan wanted their wedding day to be simple and elegant, a goal they achieved with a muted color palette featuring just the right accent of deep reds. Melissa Jill Photography captured the day behind the camera, while Flowers by Jodi nailed the floral decor!

From the bride, Lacey: My biggest desire for my wedding was for it to be simple and elegant with a hint of vintage and rustic feel. I wanted a lighter colors with no overpowering colors—a more natural look and tones. I am an Arizona girl at heart so I did add a desert feel. I based my wedding around the idea of desert succulents. I absolutely love the look of succulents; they are very simple. I also love lace and wood, which is where the lace and wood were featured at my wedding. I wanted it to be simply beautiful without being overly elaborate. I love the simplicity of light and natural tones so my colors were: blush, ivory, gold, and champagne with the hint of the dusty miller color from the succulents. And I added a little pop of maroon as to not look too washed out and to give it a little fall feeling with a darker tone.

There were quite a few DIY projects. I have a very crafty family and my sister Brooke Soules made a variety of things for my wedding. She made every banner at my reception, wooden magnetic hearts, a wooden guestbook sign in plaque with my new last name on it, two wooden frames that hung polaroids taken throughout the day on it as well as baby photos, and the flower crown I wore. She has an etsy shop so it was very easy for her to produce all of the crafts for the wedding. There were also wooden palate backdrops that were at my wedding; they are homemade but we had them already from a previous event.

I live out of state with my husband. We live in Orem Utah. We are up here because we went to school at BYU and now we just work there. So, I planned my ENTIRE wedding from out of state. I am from Arizona so I wanted it to be close to my family. My husband is from Seattle, WA. I flew almost once a month to look at venues, take engagements, and take bridals photos. It only took me 3 months to plan my wedding. I had been planning since late July 2016 and was officially engaged in the middle of August 2016. People think it was crazy to plan it in such a small window, but I wanted a fall wedding in Arizona and I didn’t think it was necessary to wait a full year. My planning went very smoothly; I had the best wedding coordinator and sisters who met with all my vendors for me. I work full time, 9 hours a day. So my life was work during the day and wedding planning at night for three months straight. However, I had most of all the details worked out in 2 months and spent the last month relaxing and spending time with my fiancé. And it turned out absolutely amazing. My wedding went so smooth; not a single thing went wrong and I didn’t want the night to end! I wish I could live it again.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? My advice for other couples is to not sweat the small stuff. Planning a wedding should be about celebrating a new life and a new journey with your love. So be happy and excited! Things will work out and turn out beautiful so don’t waste your energy stressing over planning the big event. Surround yourself with supportive friends and family and enjoy the process because your wedding day will stunning!

Industrial Texas Wedding with Romantic Minimalism

Modern Weddings

Texas is known for its weddings with heaps and heaps of southern charm, but Ashley and Johnny’s wedding broke out and traveled down the road of modern and clean. Rachel Meagan Photography was in charge of chronicling this fun couple’s big day and immediately, it evokes a contemporary feel with simple yet striking elements. The bloom creations by Wild Bunches Floral echo this with eye-catchingly bright white anemones, the ever-loved eucalyptus, and white peonies, to name a few.

Destination Wedding Weekend in Sifnos, Greece

Romantic Weddings

It’s incredible to think that beautiful locations like Sifnos exist. Greece is full of amazing spots that look like they were plucked right out of a dream, so it’s no wonder why George and Ainee were smitten and charmed. Elias Kordelakos Photography had the lucky job of spending an entire weekend perched neatly in this city in Cyclades and the photography captured all of the bliss and all of the Grecian goodness. The 12 Events kept the styling true to the location: simple, clean, and timeless with whites, creams, and subtle touches of greenery. George and Ainee, their wedding, and Sifnos are all just so dazzling.

Classic styles and clean designs are the first words that come to mind with this Caroline Ro-photographed wedding in Charleston. With Sweetgrass Social working their coordinating and design magic, Blair and Jordin stuck to a very becoming color palette of white and green for their venue’s aesthetic. Branch Design Studio took charge of all the pretty florals, sticking close to the elegant setting of this southern affair.

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!

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.

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!

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

Romantic Weddings

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!

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!

Wedding Music:

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. :)
