Classic and Romantic Savannah Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Izzy Hudgins

When we think of getting married in the south, we envision a beautiful affair filled with romantic tones and gorgeous design elements rolling all over the place. So when we saw Morgan and John’s nuptials took place in southern-traditional Savannah, we had to take a closer look at Izzy Hudgins‘s account of their big day and of course, we were so delighted about everything we saw. From Kiwi Fleur‘s elegant ivory and peach floral arrangements to the couple’s uniquely-designed reception venue, we’re positive you’ll fall in love with this southern affair.

From the bride, Morgan: We wanted a traditional, romantic, southern, winter wedding in the place we love the most, Savannah, Georgia. We were going for classic and romantic for the ceremony and the reception was so lively and fun. The colors were silver and gray, ivory, and peach. Simple and subtle, but everything really popped out against the different settings.

Catalina Point Oceanview Wedding

Romantic Weddings

It was just impossible to not be so enamored with this west coast wedding. Not only are the ocean views of the Pacific sheer bliss, but the heaps and heaps of purple and silver are incredible. Dave Richards Photography was thankfully present to capture the day, and every detail of this wedding was on point thanks to the planning expertise of Katie over at Bob Gail Special Events. Filling the reception with even more purple to look at, Hollyflora went wild with the arrangements of very classic lavender and plum-colored blooms. The pretty in this California wedding is almost too much to handle!

From the bride, Alexa: We wanted to embrace the natural elements of the resort but also make it feel like a west coast fall, which is why we went with vibrant purples and a classic, timeless feel. We went with a variety of purples as our main color with touches of silver.

This was the sweetest day and oh how I wish I was a fly on the wall of this wedding, especially at Ashley and Luis’s ceremony during her vows. I am such a sucker for custom vows and ones that make you teary! Pie-Shoppe snapped the entire day and night away and I love all of the love between these two that were conveyed through the images. Orange Blossom Special Events and Foxtail Florals teamed up and infused the whole day with lovely muted colors, wonderful blooms, romance galore, and brilliant Mexican decor.

From the event designer, Grace of Orange Blossom Special Events: Ashley grew up in LA, she has an affinity for individuals with disabilities, and has been fortunate to travel to amazing places like India, China and more. Luis grew up in Mexico City, he has a strong entrepreneurial spirit and somehow manages to win almost every competitive game he plays. They both love midcentury style, they love to stay up to date on local hot spots, and have a precious 5 pound puppy named Ella.

Chic Austin Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

When a wedding party kicks off with a mariachi band and food trucks, you know you’re in for a good time. This was exactly the case for Amy and Bob’s wedding, whose Austin celebration is full of so many whimsical details and a grey lace gown you’ll fall head over heels for. Thank you to Julie Wilhite Photography, CLINK, and Merveille Events for your parts in this beautiful day!

chic Austin wedding - photo by Julie Wilhite Photography http://ruffledblog.com/eclectic-outdoor-texas-wedding

Amy and Bob got married last October at the beautiful Laguna Gloria, a contemporary art museum in Austin, TX. From the start, they wanted to make their wedding unique and something their guests would truly enjoy. The ceremony was held in the amphitheater and it could not have been a more perfect day for these two to get married. As Amy’s sisters walked her down the aisle to “Ho Hey” by The Lumineers, the entire group went silent. It was a moment no one will ever forget! Afterwards, guests were greeted into cocktail hour by Mariachis, Peached Tortilla’s food truck and passion fruit signature cocktails being passed to all.

Romantic Iowa Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Logan Clement

Never in our lives have we seen so many different styles of flowers in one wedding, and we are ALL about it. Today’s wedding from Logan Clement, Bride Meets Wedding, Shelly Sarver Designs, and Hand Pickd (Just For You) is full of inspired floral design, tons of beautiful rentals, and a wedding dress covered in tiny flower accents.

From the wedding planner, Aubrey Secrest of Bride Meets Wedding: When you look at Gabrielle and Andrew you can see not only the love they have for each other, but the amount of love that they have for their family and friends. These two thrive on spending time with their families, and really focused on not making the wedding day just about themselves and their new journey as husband and wife, but as a celebration of their family and friends.

If the weather is starting to get chillier where you are, the warm color palette of this California wedding will heat you right up. Leo Cabal and Tanner Wendell Stewart were the photographers behind the big day, which was beautifully styled by Ever After Events with absolutely jaw-dropping flowers from Isari Flower Studio. Seriously, the bride’s cascading bouquet? Out of this world.

From the bride, Stephanie: I was going for whimsical and fun and with and elegant feel. I think that came through in the details of the décor. My color were Coral + Gold + Silver. I was going for whimsical and elegant with a lot of handmade details.

So many things were DIY. With the help of my mom, mother-in-law and bridesmaids we painted the feather tips gold, made all the tassels, thrifted the mix match glasses. My mom sewed all the ties for the groomsmen in a black velvet material. She also made my veil and the table squares for the cocktail tables. For the signs, I used old pieces of wood and attached water color paper that I had painted on and my bridesmaid Libby Tipton Spangler did all the calligraphy. We did the same with the table signs. My MOH’s husband made the Tee-Pee photo booth backdrop.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? I would advise 2 things. 1. Get a wedding planner earlier than later. They have great connections and can help take care of all the details. Especially on your wedding day, they are the go to person for all the little things that come up, so you can just relax instead of problem solving. 2. Don’t stress about the details. At the end of the day what really matters is the person you are going to spend the rest of your life with and all your family and friends who came to celebrate and have a good time. Be present in the moment and enjoy every minute because before you know it your running through a line of bubbles and the most amazing day has come to an end.

Pennsylvania Wedding with Soft Purples

Elegant Weddings

Soft shades of blush pink and lavender, fluffy peony and hydrangea floral arrangements, and one couple unbelievably in love — that’s the recipe for today’s wedding. Gloria and Mike’s wedding day was sophisticated, romantic, and elegant, and no one was better suited for the job of documenting the big day than film photographer Lauren Gabrielle Photography.

Pennsylvania wedding with soft purples - photo by Lauren Gabrielle Photography http://ruffledblog.com/pennsylvania-wedding-with-soft-purples

From the bride, Gloria: The look that we were going for was spring elegance with a touch of romance, which was inspired when I could not just choose one color for the bridesmaid dresses and ended up blending some shades of blush pinks and lavenders. I wanted our wedding to embody a fresh spring ambiance pulled together with a formal black tie event feel as well, to portray the importance of this day for both my fiance (now husband!!!) and I and our families, as well as to make the guests have a relaxed and fun time celebrating with us. So we decided to go with black tuxedos for the groomsmen, and fun colors for the bridesmaid dresses, and had a miniature bridal party with all the toddlers and kids in our families (who doesn’t love the laughter and joy kids bring to the ceremony when they walk down the aisle?).

peony bouquet - photo by Lauren Gabrielle Photography http://ruffledblog.com/pennsylvania-wedding-with-soft-purples
Flower recipe: The factor that really pulled both the formal and soft looks together were our flowers: a blend of white and pink peonies, blush pink hydrangeas, lavender spray roses, garden roses, and pink ranunculus on the wedding cake, centerpieces, and my bouquet was mainly a soft pink and white peony, with white peonies for the bridesmaids’ bouquets.

Any advice for couples planning their wedding day now? Some advice I have for couples currently planning their own special day is to take time away from planning and spend it with the girls and guys who are so involved in your day (shoutout to the most helpful bridesmaids in the world!) and cherish the people who give so much to be a part of your day (for us it was our families). Aside from that, keep your eye on the overall theme and stick to it (it will be a lifesaver when it comes to the nitty gritty details). Also, my husband and I were a long distance couple for our whole relationship (Michigan and Pennsylvania), and I was also finishing nursing school at the time. I know there are plenty of other couples out there who are also juggling many many deadlines and milestones, and it is important to remember why you are getting married in the first place – to join paths with your best friend and the one you love most. It makes it all so much more fun and enjoyable!

Relaxed Destination Wedding in Tulum

Beach Weddings

Cassie and Sean wanted more than just one day to celebrate their wedding with family and friends, so a destination wedding was the perfect answer. Everyone headed to Tulum, Mexico for an absolutely dreamy event with tropical air and lush surroundings, made even better by the talents of Cynthia Rose Photography and Tulum Weddings and Events.

relaxed destination wedding in Tulum - photo by Cynthia Rose Photography http://ruffledblog.com/relaxed-destination-wedding-in-tulum

From the bride, Cassie: We knew we wanted our wedding to be laid back, intimate and jam packed with laughter. We also knew we wanted to spend a few quality days (not just one!) with our closest friends and family and have an awesome party to cap it off. Sean and I are beach people (he proposed on the beach at my parents beach house in North Carolina) and oh do we ever love Mexico! It is so close yet, far enough away where we can throw our real world cares to the wind and really melt into two puddles of pure bliss… obviously that’s the place you want to get married! And Tulum… oh, Tulum… pure magic… a jungle beach paradise. It’s rustic, charming and it’s our favorite spot to escape to for a long weekend.

In terms of style, I was going for a laid back, art deco, vintage, beach-glam vibe (if that even makes any sense at all!). I actually just kind of meshed some of my favorite eras together but, everything turned out beyond perfect! The juxtaposition between the rustic, laid back, beach palapas and the glammed up, glitzy details was just beyond!

We wanted to fill the day with tons of little personal touches, which was not easy to do when you’re doing a destination. We ended up bringing several suitcases full of items down to Mexico because we wanted to have these personal touches, which meant I had to be super organized! For our guest book, we had friends sign vintage postcards (I brought a ton of vintage postcards from places that were special to Sean and I) with well wishes or advice. We had our guests find their seats for dinner with gold compact compasses which we brought down, along with signage that said “May love be your compass, may it guide you home….But, first find your seat.” We loved that because home is no longer a place it’s now a person. We also had maracas handmade with our name and the date for guests to shake during the ceremony when we kissed. It was all really cute and in the end defiantly worth all the stress!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? My advice for couples thinking about planning destination weddings is… just do it! Destination weddings are the best because everyone really gets to know each other and by the wedding it’s like one big happy family. Try to make it as EASY as possible for all guests… that could mean arranging accommodations for guests, having transportation set up and other events, dinners and things for them to do. The biggest piece of advice is to find someone there who you trust and who can help you. We got really close with Sandy and Morgan and they were rockstars in dealing with logistics. We couldn’t have done it from afar without them. Also, I’m a bit of a control freak and I had to learn how to just let some things be! There were things that I didn’t know how they were going to work or turn out and I had to just trust Morgan and Sandy and roll with it. Distance also makes you super decisive. Make a decisions and move one! Life is in the slow lane in Mexican beach towns (which is why we picked Tulum in the first place) so, in the end it was perfect because all I could do was drink a margarita, enjoy our guests and let the wind carry away my worries.

Handcrafted Mismatched Backyard Wedding

Garden Weddings

Lea and Fabian describe their wedding day as “classic elegance with a touch of vintage whimsy,” and I couldn’t possibly imagine a more fitting explanation. Rachel Solomon Photography and Carte Blanche worked wonders here, taking the couple’s vision of mismatched eclecticism and making sure all the Is and Ts were dotted and crossed.

handcrafted mismatched backyard wedding - photo by Rachel Solomon Photography http://ruffledblog.com/handcrafted-mismatched-backyard-wedding

From the bride, Lea: Our wedding day was absolutely beautiful. My overall theme I identified as classic elegance with a touch of vintage whimsy and I drew inspiration from old English gardens and garden parties. I wanted family style wooden tables without linen with green, white, and ivory flowers lining the centers of the tables with bistro lights swinging sweetly above. I wanted to get married under the tree that I used to climb to read a book or to pick mulberries to give my miniature horse. I decorated the tree with all kinds of lanterns; one of the lanterns was my grandpa’s old railroad lantern.

I knew I didn’t want to walk from the house and be seen by all of my guests, so I needed a way to hide myself until the moment I began to walk down the aisle. I loved the idea of some sort of curtain hanging from a tree. I had seen a paper flower curtain on Pinterest and had incidentally found a large heart paper punch at the craft store, so I began to cut out paper hearts on floral patterned green paper and my cousin sewed them together in 8 foot long strands. We hung the 8×8 creation from a pecan tree and my dad and stepdad parted it down the middle to reveal me, the bride, to the guests and my groom. After the ceremony, the heart curtain doubled as the backdrop for the photo booth.

I saw a drawing in Martha Stewart Wedding Magazine of people reading a large vintage newspaper for a wedding program. My mom and stepdad used to own and produce a small newspaper so I knew it was meant to be! We collected pictures, I wrote small stories, we even created a crossword puzzle, and we created a beautiful vintage newspaper. I found some customizable vintage library cards on Etsy that I purchased and displayed on a vintage card catalogue that my mom owned for the seating chart.

We hunted for the perfect tables and only one company in town, Classic Party Rentals, had precisely what I wanted. I am a bit of a collector of randomness and decided each table should have its own theme, and thus began the hunt for the perfect containers for each of the 16 tables. I began by looking in my mother’s, my grandmothers, and my own cabinets for flower vases or any other antique type containers that would hold water. For approximately one year I scoured thrift stores and yard sales seeking out the perfect containers. The themed tables were quite the project, but I cried tears of joy when I saw how perfect Carte Blanche Floral Designs had captured what I had been dreaming of. The table themes were: green glass, clear glass, cut glass, wooden containers, pink/orange depression glass, tins, milk glass, books, brass, silver, pewter, mercury glass, teacups, terrariums, antique medicine bottles (I’m a nurse), and pitchers. The cocktail hour tables also had a garden theme.

Modern Silver and Purple Wedding Editorial

Wedding Design

Few hues evoke modern and sleek design so quickly as silver, which you’ll find a fair amount of in this styled shoot from Amy & Jordan Photography, Andrea Leslie Weddings & Events LLC, and LUX Florist. When paired with hints of purple and burgundy, the result is a cool toned wonderland! We love the idea of having a tower of champagne drinks available for your guests, with a little sprig of lavender in each glass to boot.

modern silver and purple wedding editorial - photo by Amy and Jordan Photography http://ruffledblog.com/modern-silver-and-purple-wedding-editorial

From the event designer, Andrea Leslie Weddings & Events: When asked to design this styled shoot, I wanted to create something romantic that paired well with the contemporary look of the venue. The smoky quartz color and intricate lace influenced each piece of the design. The layered silver linens provided the perfect base for the centerpiece, which included various shades of purple. For the attire, we dressed the bride in a beautiful Enzoani dress accented with embroidered silver lace detailing and a soft lace and tulle trumpet skirt. The groom was outfitted in a slim fit navy tux with black lapel, carrying the colored tux trend from the runway right into the shoot.

For the paper products, I love the romantic look of calligraphy, but wanted each piece to have a uniquely modern place in the shoot. Rather than your traditional place card, we had guest names scripted on the back of each ghost chair. We also used acrylic menus and a table number, to bring the modern and romantic elements together. Lastly, I LOVE champagne towers, but wanted a modern take on the traditional tower. I utilized a stacked silver stand and accented each glass with a sprig of lavender to bring some softness to each glass.

California Sand Dunes Wedding

Wedding Design

Natural decor elements inspired by the sea are always right at home in beach weddings, but today’s team (including Ashley Williams Photography, Urban Shindigs, and Luxe Botanique) went in the opposite direction and placed them amidst the sand dunes of Southern California. Using sea glass and non-floral bouquet elements, this styled shoot blends the best of both beach-y and desert wedding inspiration for a look that’s keeping us deeply inspired.

From the event designer, Urban Shindigs: It all came to me in a “Blue” haze. Luxe Botanique was wanting to create something with simple natural elements like sand, grape wood, cotton, and air plants. Most minds would immediately go to the beach… but mine went to the blue skies over the majestic California Sand Dunes. I wanted to embrace the raw elements the dunes had to offer. I pulled some natural items from Witty Rentals. We used cowhide for the table linen, equipale leather chairs, and of course a collection of bone skulls.

For the fashion styling I wanted a slate blue look. It first started with the the slate blue Adrianna Papell gown from Bella Bridesmaids. The cap sleeves, beaded sharp lines, and glittering sequins combined to create the stunning look. To top off the brides look we pulled the natural metal/stone jewelery from Kim Egel Jewelry. The groom’s slate blue Allure Suit by Allure Men came from Friar Tux. Hair & Makeup was done by the amazing Erin Dunaway. To keep this shoot raw and natural we wanted a real honest couple. Ashley and Bryan were a perfect match! No flowers were used at all in the bouquet. Instead, Luxe Botanique used rustic textiles like cotton, dried mushroom, seed pods, blue thistle, foliage and an air plant to complete the look. Twinkle & Toast designed a blue water color handwritten invitation to go along, as well as custom sea glass escort cards. It paired perfectly with our stunning cake designed by Hey There, Cupcake. This shoot was all captured by the very talented Ashley Williams Photography & Audrey Alba Films.

Purple and Ivory Wedding in the Woods

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Jen & Chris Creed

It’s styled shoots like this one from Jen & Chris Creed and Enchanted Florist Nashville that make me fall in love with purple all over again. We love how much attention was paid to all the little details here, especially the decoration for the gold chiavari chairs used for the ceremony!

purple and ivory wedding in the woods - photo by Jen and Chris Creed http://ruffledblog.com/purple-and-ivory-wedding-in-the-woods

From the photographers, Jen & Chris Creed: “Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”— John Muir (The Mountains of California). There’s a certain peace and calm that comes from being in nature, and that is where we found the inspiration for this wedding styled shoot. This is for couples who feel called to wilderness, and who want to celebrate with their friends and family under a canopy of trees, while still incorporating a sparkling style!

We started with the venue, a hidden gem just north of Nashville, TN, where the owners lovingly planted the rows and rows of pine trees, and continued to draw our inspiration from nature. The florals were designed with a loose and wild style in mind, and incorporated various purple hues as an accent to all the natural evergreens. The ceremony set up featured gold chiavari chairs under stunning mirrored star lights, to add a lavish touch to the natural backdrop without overwhelming it. The chairs faced a simple whitewashed whiskey barrel altar, and the aisle was lined with pine branches found on the venue property.

A lounge area was set up with whitewashed vintage furniture, perfect for taking in the surroundings during cocktail hour, or for the couple to slip away for a quiet moment! For the reception, we loved a barnwood table set amongst the pines, with lilac and plum linens as an accent. Succulents topped the menu cards, and we did two different look options with plates and chargers. One clear charger with antique china, and one a gold charger with a clear plate. The bride’s dress was a multi-layered tulle gown by Monique Lhuillier, which floated beautifully through the trees. The lace top was by Augusta Jones, and tied into the vintage feel of the lounge area and china. The bride wore a crystal headpiece for the ceremony, and later changed to a more whimsical flower crown for the reception! Her groom was handsome in a navy tuxedo and lilac bow tie.

Party City Wedding in Atlanta

Wedding Design

Photos by:

The Big Fake Wedding recently put together another faux wedding in Atlanta — their home market — making it their tenth event in the Georgia city. Time truly flies, doesn’t it? This time around, the inspiration was “Party City” — imagine lots of celebration, metallic silver, and bright yellow to reflect daffodils, the traditional flower for tenth anniversaries.

Overcast Beach Wedding with Blues and Silver

Wedding Design

Even when the days get a bit chillier, a beach wedding is never out of the question – as this styled shoot from Karla Korn Photography and Rockstar Catering + Event Co. attests. This team drew inspiration from rugged rocks and crashing waves, and opted for a silver-grey gown for the bride (a detail we absolutely love). Some silver leaf details and beautiful greenery from Botanical Bliss ties everything together beautifully!

From Rachel Pintarelli, Rockstar Catering + Event Co.: We’re pleased to share with you a sweet styled session celebrating the coastal winter wedding. Coral Cove Park in Jupiter FL was the perfect backdrop for our intimate affair which featured the moodiest of December skies and our real-life sweeties, Kristie and Tyler. From the beginning, Karla’s vision for the shoot was clear – soft and romantic images that capture the coziness of an overcast evening and the movement of an ocean breeze. With inspiration stemming from the beautifully rugged rocks along the sandy coastline and the waves that crash over them, our creative team worked with a color palette that combined muted hues of ocean blues and grays against natural textures and tones with added pops of silver.

Each and every detail you see was handcrafted, designed, or selected by our vendors, right down to the silver leaf flatware and sea salt favors. For the florals, Chloe from Botanical Bliss composed a unique collection of Cotton, Air Plants, Spanish Moss, Dahlias, Italian Ruscus, Rice Flower, and Orchids with a wispy, airy feel. Candlelight and hand written paper details from Erica Dunhill upped the romance factor table-side, alongside winter white faux fur ghost chair accents, timeless china from Atlas Party Rental, and vintage furnishings by Urban Vintage. The dinner menu featured fresh, seasonal fare from Chef Kyle of Rockstar Catering + Event Co which paired perfectly with our signature Pear + Prosecco cocktail. For dessert, Earth and Sugar created a stunning three-tiered cake adorned with silver leaf and cotton accents.

We hope you find yourself inspired from our collection of details attainable for every style of bride – vintage, modern, beachy, classic, or glam – seaside soiree or not.

An Elegant Destination Wedding in Tuscany

Elegant Weddings

We’re kicking off this week with a day of international weddings, starting with this Tuscan beauty from L&V Photography and Chic Weddings in Italy. Helen and Daniel met in Australia, married in Tuscany, and then moved to Hong Kong, so it’s no stretch to say that traveling runs in their blood! This entire day is an absolute dream, and might just have us looking at ticket prices for our own Tuscan vacation…

an elegant destination wedding in Tuscany - photo by L&V Photography http://ruffledblog.com/an-elegant-destination-wedding-in-tuscany

From the bride, Helen: I am originally from London in the UK and Daniel is from Albury in Australia. We met in Sydney (where I lived for 6 years and Daniel for 18 years) and moved to Hong Kong soon after the wedding. Daniel proposed in spectacular style on February 14 2014, whisking me off on a seaplane over Sydney Harbour to a private beach where we enjoyed a romantic picnic and celebrated our engagement with champagne. One third of our guests (including two of the bridesmaids, the 4 groomsmen and our best woman) travelled to the wedding from Australia and the rest of our guests travelled from the UK so we were keen to make a full weekend of the event – having a welcome dinner the night before and a brunch on the beautiful Belvedere Terrace at Hotel Le Fontanelle on the Sunday after.

We wanted to create an intimate and elegant Italian Renaissance garden feel, merging the indoors with oudoors and maximising the beautiful views. We instantly knew that Hotel Le Fontanelle was the perfect venue for us due to its beautiful views of the surrounding Tuscan hills and also the superb food, wine and service. Daniel and I had taken a lovely vacation there the previous year and I had been secretly thinking about it as a potential wedding venue even back then.

Our colour scheme was pastels including charcoal and light greys and light blue. The flowers were neutral and pastel tones with cream and pink together with plenty of greenery and some silvery/grey. Pearl accents were also used within some of the decorations. I really loved working with our wedding invite and stationary designer Fin Fellowes. She managed to capture the floral and elegant theme perfectly and all the stationary was printed using very high quality materials to give a luxurious feel. All stationary was designed by Fin specifically for us and included a bespoke wedding crest as well as a beautiful floral wall on the back of the invites and escort cards.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? I would highly recommend having a wedding planner for a destination wedding to take away the stress and provide the knowledge of local suppliers. Selecting Chic Weddings as our wedding planners and designers was absolutely key. They instantly understood exactly what we were looking for and were able to translate this into the stunning design themes as well as providing recommendations and co-ordination with many of our fantastic suppliers. On the big day, we didn’t have anything to worry about as Clara and Sara from Chic weddings together with the fantastic team at Hotel Le Fontanelle ensured everything ran completely smoothly. I found using a wedding website a great way to provide information to guests to enable them to make it as easy as possible to arrange their travel and make the most of their time in Tuscany.

The show-stopper here is the incredible Rebecca Taylor navy gown specked with silver sequins, which provides the perfect backdrop for a lovely anemone, air plant, and eucalyptus bouquet.

From the photographer and stylist, Candice of Candice Benjamin Photography: The story of how the shoot came together is a simple one. I’m new to Northern Colorado and wanted to show a little un-traditional flair to my new state. I’ve always loved the idea of wearing a colored wedding dress, and wanted to show couples that just because it’s snowing doesn’t mean that you can’t hold a beautiful wedding.

Also, I’ve always been inspired by the galaxy, and feel like you can always find some sort of romance surrounding it. I dip-dyed napkins to remind me of the night sky, hung paper stars over the table, and we dressed the bride in a blue dress with what looks like shooting stars falling down the fabric. My favorite part of the shoot was done by Lace & Lilies. They took the idea of stars and translated that into using star-shaped air-plants in the bouquet.

Smoke and Mirrors Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

The idea of a wedding styled after “smoke and mirrors” was immediately intriguing to me, I have to admit. Mixing together some mysterious and dark inspiration with rich jewel tones, the latest Big Fake Wedding event in New York City is a production that inspires us in new ways each time we look at it. Our particular favorite elements would have to be the incredible fashion and reception details, like the agate table numbers and hand-painted centerpieces!

smoke and mirrors wedding

Mysterious and a bit dark, this inspiration board encouraged vendors to take direction from this year’s edgy bridal fashion and turn it into something ideal and bridal. The bride had two looks – her backless ceremony gown was classic, yet edgy and her very glam reception gown was perfect for the party! Two paper elements really stood out – the programs (painted, stained glass-looking) and the hand-stamped save the dates. Rich, jewel-toned bouquets were accented with gilded leaves to give them the perfect pinch of glamour. Tablescapes were accented with stained glass, agate and hand-painted elements, and enhanced by bits of metallic. We usually let the bride and her maids shine, but these fellows look incredibly dapper in their custom black and navy suits – check out the custom cuffs on the groom (“Just Married”)!

St. Patrick’s Day Wedding Inspiration at a Pub

Wedding Design

St. Patrick’s Day has one of our all-time favorite color palettes, green and gold, and this styled shoot from Juli Vaughn Designs and Sarah Esther Photography fuses together those very colors with a brunch wedding for a shoot that’s making us as hungry as it is inspiring us! The icing on the cake has to be the sparkly green and silver beaded gown, a vintage find in Atlanta — just wait until you catch a glimpse.

From the event designer, Juli of Juli Vaughn Designs: The luck of the Irish sometimes extends to vintage green beaded dresses – at least that’s what makeup artist Andrea Carter experienced the day she found the dress that inspired this shoot. Tucked in between a mound of 80s prom dresses at an antique store in Atlanta, she spotted its sparkly sleeve and fell in love immediately.

Much like finding “the dress” and being excited to plan your wedding day, as soon as Andrea showed it to me, I knew we had to give it a second day in the spotlight as a star in a St. Patrick’s Day inspired wedding shoot. And what Irish-inspired wedding is complete without a pub, a gorgeous redhead, and plenty of Guinness (in ice cream float form)? We also threw in a brunch reception with a pancake “cake”, a hand drawn Celtic knot and family crest, sparkly custom jewelry, and a letterpress invitation suite that could turn anyone green with envy.

An All-White Winter Wonderland

One of our favorite ways to battle the chilly winter season is poring over gorgeous images and inspiring ideas. Luckily this styled shoot from Gideon Photography, Forevermore Events, and Bloomers Flowers & Decor has both of these! Get ready to step foot in a dreamy winter wedding tableau:

From the photographer, Gideon Photography: It’s that time of year — winter is upon us and with it snow and holiday cheer. This winter wonderland inspired wedding theme shoot captures winter in all of its splendor and beauty. The styling of this shoot with its monotone palette let the snow and elements shine. I especially love the hot chocolate shooters for keeping warm on a cold winter day.

Late Fall Wedding Ideas with a Cider Bar

Wedding Design

What’s chilly weather without hot apple cider? We’re thrilled to share with you this inspired inspiration shoot from Cyrience Creative Studios and Natalie Trento, who mixed plaid fabrics with copper, blues, and apples for a photo shoot that perfectly embodies the cold weather spirit. We love the idea of having stemware suspended over the cider bar with ribbon, so each guest can cut down their own glass!

From the event designer, Natalie Trento: Fall in New York is an amazing time of year, so we designed this stylized shoot to capture some of our absolute favorite autumn elements. From the gorgeous plaid table runners, to the DIY hand-painted copper apples, to the provincial wire baskets and mercury glass candle holders, each component of the shoot was thoughtfully chosen to create a rustic yet modern autumn feel.

Additionally, many of the décor elements, such as the cookbooks, spice jars, and apples, were carefully selected because of their affordability or reusable qualities. We truly wanted this shoot to feel inspirational yet attainable, so that regardless of their budget, couples could incorporate aspects of the decor into their own weddings. For instance, the hanging wine glass display above the bar and dessert buffet was created out of a 12’ metal pole, 50 yards of navy and charcoal grosgrain ribbon, and wine glasses. This display is not only unique due to its affordable components, but because of the fun and functionality of allowing guests to select and cut their own wine glasses from the display.

Farm fresh donuts and apple cider (we decided to serve both spiced and hard) adorned the self-serve bar along with some of our favorite budget-friendly red wine. Love truly is the spice of life, so in lieu of traditional favors,a display of spice jars was set up for guests to take home with them. The thought was that these spices could be used by the wedding’s guests again and again, and would function as lovely reminders of this intimate fall wedding.

The Kitchen Table, a beautiful downtown NYC private dining and event space that was recently featured on Vogue.com, provided the perfect setting for this intimate wedding shoot.

Seattle Wedding with Vintage Glam Flair

Elegant Weddings

Photos by:

Kim Smith Miller

If you’ve got a vintage wedding theme in mind, you may want to take notes from Zora and Jerome’s Seattle wedding. Kim Smith Miller, McKenzie Powell, and Simplicity Events LLC were the perfect team of vendors to execute Zora’s vision, which included nods to her recently passed grandmother’s impeccable style. Prepare to fall in love, folks:

Seattle Wedding with Vintage Glam Flair - photo by Kim Smith Miller http://ruffledblog.com/seattle-wedding-with-vintage-glam-flair

From the bride, Zora: I wanted the aesthetic of the wedding to be a blend of vintage and classic elements to compliment the rustic environment of Sodo Park but I also wanted to maintain an overall elegant feel. I wanted my look to complement the venue and enhance the elegant, timeless feel I was aiming to achieve. My grandma was my style icon and truly the most glamorous women I’ve ever known; her influence was definitely a huge factor in creating my look for the big day. Before I even started looking at dresses, I knew “the-one” would have to work with my grandma’s long, art-deco inspired, opera glass necklace. I tried on many white dresses before finding “the one” which just didn’t feel right to me – I wanted something more unique and interesting. The minute I spotted the Jenny Packham Eden dress in Platinum, I knew it was the perfect dress to tie all the elements I wanted together. I guess you could say I was going for a vintage glamor look, sort of my grandmother’s glamor meets Great Gatsby – I really didn’t want it to be too theme-y. McKenzie described it as, “A touch of the dark and romantic offset by the light and fresh. Ornate + rustic + clean + simple + lush + vintage + timeless… blended all together and not too much of any of it.” I asked the bridesmaids to wear long black gowns of their choosing and the men were all in black suits with white shirts, black ties, and tie clips. I felt this look would add to the elegant, timeless, and formal look I wanted to achieve.

I was really reluctant to choose “my wedding colours” as I wanted the colour palette to be rich and was worried selecting one or two colours would make the aesthetic flat. Thankfully, with the help of our florist and event designer, McKenzie Powell, we were able to select a more complex colour palate of neutral tones with accents of emerald green and dark dusty blues. McKenzie posted a great blog entry describing the aesthetic of the wedding here. I added touches of vintage throughout, such as: a vintage cigar cart, a table with old family wedding photos which were displayed in mismatched silver frames and our ceremony backdrop was a pair of vintage glass doors with dark green and white floras draped over top. For the décor and table settings the focus was mostly on florals, mismatched silver trays and lots and lots of candles. I included a few personal touches to the day: I made the wedding invitations myself from vintage handkerchiefs. We wrote our own vows and preformed a wedding wine box ceremony, where we chose a bottle of wine, wrote letters to each other and sealed it all in a wooden box made by the grooms father which we will open on our 5th wedding anniversary. My favourite detail was the fabric swatch with my grandma’s picture on it that I got sewn to the underside of my dress — that way both she and my grandpa would get to walk me down the aisle (I always told my grandma that she and my grandpa would one day walk me down the aisle; my grandma passed away two years ago, so this was a way to fulfill that).

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? It’s so easy to get carried away, remember what it’s really all about – the couple! Everyone says that your wedding day will fly by and to take it all in, and that is more true than we expected! It went by in a flash. I never would have hesitated to hire a day-of-coordinator or in getting a videographer, they were worth every penny!

Handcrafted Finger Lakes Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Photos by:

Forged in the North

Never have ‘vintage’ and ‘rustic’ merged more beautifully than in this beauty of a wedding from Forged in the North (formerly Ryan & Heidi Studios). Delanie and Kayle chose a timeless color palette of greens, pinks, and silver to decorate their wedding day, and we think it worked perfectly against the barn backdrop to bring a bit more of a romantic touch to an equally romantic day.

From the bride, Delanie: We visited the wedding venue for the first time on a hot August evening and could just picture ourselves surrounded by family and friends having the best night ever… luckily what we envisioned and more came true. Kayle is a timber framer, so having a barn reception made complete sense and the venue comprising an old farm house allowed for the vintage inspiration. The barn space could have easily ended up too country for our tastes or “over decorated”, so we had to evaluate our decor carefully and stick to the vintage and rustic theme. All of the center pieces were old silver teapots and borrowed vintage glassware collected by Kayle’s mother. My mother helped to obtain and frame the wedding photos of great grand-parents to parents that we proudly displayed. I work for a museum and like to support handmade products and artists. We knew we wanted to stick to a handcrafted feel and not use lots of newly purchased products. For example, we used an arrow in our invitations and save the dates, so the arrows we used for the table numbers were made by Navajo artists from a vendor at the museum. Ultimately though, we wanted our guests to have a fantastic time. We hoped this plan would alleviate the rush of going from the ceremony to a reception and create an atmosphere with lots of dancing, music in the barn and drinks on the lawn. Luckily, the weather also cooperated for a perfect evening, we even had a full moon.

Flower recipe: I knew I wanted lots of flowers and greenery, so being able to get married in July was fortunate. Kayle’s mother orchestrated the arrangement of all our centerpieces and bouquets. We used white roses, pink roses, hydrangea, peonies, lambs ear, wild roses, tiger lilies, baby’s breath, smoke tree leaves and palms. If you are ambitious, creative and on a budget, take some floral arranging classes prior to the wedding with your friends and family, you may find you could do some of the arrangements yourself.

We did not want to be limited to a color palette that would be hard to execute so we decided to stick loosely to Greens, Pinks and Silver. Everything else really just coordinated to those choices. I wanted my MOH to choose the dresses for the bridesmaids, and since we found green dresses that became the primary color inspiration. Our biggest DIY project was the Timber Frame Arbor that Kayle built and designed. Kayle works for his father’s company, Settlement Post and Beam, and they handcrafted a beautiful backdrop for our ceremony. We ended up using silk flowers on the arbor due to the intensity of the sun at that time of year. Another fun DIY project was the BAR sign. We used signboard, plywood and patio lights to create one of our favorite decorations of the wedding.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Don’t worry if your bridal party is uneven or mixed gender or too big or too small. Your bridal party encompass the people who will make your wedding weekend more fun and really put you at ease during the chaos, so do whatever you want. Decide on a theme and stick to it. It is easy to get distracted by other beautiful weddings on Pinterest and wedding blogs, if you don’t make a decision you will drive yourself crazy. Really consider hiring a wedding coordinator if your venue doesn’t provide one and spend ample amount of time on the schedule of events.

From the photographers, Ryan and Heidi of Forged in the North : Kayle and Delanie met and fell in love at Penn State. It’s no surprise to why they were a perfect match. Both of them have huge heart, a passion for creating beautiful things and being surrounded by nature. Their wedding venue, Gratitude & Grace, is tucked away in the finger lakes. A unique private residence with a renovated 1870’s farm house and barn, basically a photographer’s playground. Kayle hand cut and assembled the beautiful arbor that him and his bride got married under. Delanie LOVES details, which was clear to see in all the creative decor elements that she and her family completely DIY’d. Even the floral centerpieces! Not to mention they homemade the most incredible pies for dessert. Everything from their day was absolute magic from Delanie’s BHLDN dress to the outdoor bar to the field of gold that we shot them in. They danced the night away with family and friends with fireflies flickering in the fields and a super moon overhead. A perfect summer affair.

North Star Ballroom Wedding

Vintage Weddings

Goodness gracious, this wedding dress. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect fit for bride Amanda than this Tadashi Shoji stunner — the vintage-inspired lace, the tiered skirt, and the long sleeves work perfectly against the contrast of her dark hair with shocks of purple. Thank you to Sarah of Hazelwood Photo for her beautiful work here!

From the bride, Amanda: We wanted our wedding to be relaxed but still elegant. I had decided on a vintage theme, but we didn’t want it to go too far in any one direction, so we threw in some tarot card and crystal elements. We wanted our guests to feel taken care of, instead of feeling stiff or uncomfortable. I think the open bar + photobooth really helped everyone settle in!

We envisioned art deco vintage meets summer garden vintage, with a few vegan and art nouveau touches. We used a vintage-pastel color theme (pink/green/cream/white) for the flowers, added a little bit of gold & silver for deco-sparkle, and some black to ground the whole thing. Our invitations echoed the pink ceiling of the ballroom. The only thing we made ourselves was the seating chart, which only involved cutting up color copies of tarot cards and downloading a nice font.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Give yourself plenty of time so that A.) you aren’t restricted by a vendor’s availability, and B.) you can focus on each task individually. Browse vendor profiles and websites to narrow it down to a shortlist of businesses you’d actually like to meet up with. There’s always going to be one more thing you hadn’t thought of, so don’t sweat it if you suddenly have to add a new task onto your list. Be confident and don’t let tradition dictate something you don’t want.

From the stylist, Jennifer Minns of Luxe Special Events: Christina & Jonathan’s love for each other is simply tangible in a room. They are the kind of couple we just want to work our tails off for to create a warm, fuzzy, intimate ambiance to surround their sweet selves in on their wedding day. They met almost 5 years ago through Jon’s sister at their church. After a few years of dating, Jon proposed on Windansea Beach with boxes of mementos of their relationship. He sang a song for her and she accepted his proposal. Christina and Jonathan chose the New Children’s Museum as their wedding venue to host an elegant and interactive adventure. Upon entering, guests were provided a map of the museum to guide them to hidden surprises and favorite playful exhibits. The urban industrial backdrop lent a blank canvas for the soft, romantic blush flowers and gold accents. Linens and Versailles chairs were chosen in white for a clean finish. Although Christina & Jonathan had a definite opinion on styling, this couple had their hearts and wishes right where they should be – the sanctity of the ceremony. “It’s all about the vows. “And so together with Root 75, we brainstormed the stunning garland draped altar structure to frame them during their ceremony. Over-sized balloons guided guests to cocktails near the bounce house after. Downstairs, a stunning reception including long white family-style tables with ikat polka dot and stripe runners held miles of romantic arrangements and candlelight. Guests enjoyed a creative foodie dinner (ancho smoked gun chicken in a mason jar, yum) and a generous display of desserts created by a dear friend. The wedding day was playful, dreamy, and romantic all at once.

Stylish Green Building Wedding

Modern Weddings

Time and again, The Green Building has proven itself to be one of our favorite wedding venues. How can we possibly resist its easy blend of industrial and romantic styles? Clean Plate Pictures was recently there to capture the wedding of Jen and Rob, whose wedding was decked out to stylish amazingness by Whimsy Weddings and Molly Oliver Flowers.

From the bride, Jen: We’re not a couple who likes a lot of attention and fluff, so we wanted our wedding to feel fun and modern. In terms of style, we like a mix of minimalism with graphic colorful pops. We are also obsessed with food and it is a huge part of our relationship, so we wanted to make it the “theme” of our wedding. We were inspired by Smorgasburg, which incorporates a lot of our favorite things: cool people, hip location in Brooklyn, and the ability to feast on a variety of different things. I think we ticked off all those things!

Georgia Railroad Museum Wedding

Vintage Weddings

Photos by:

Tory Williams

One of our favorite recent trends over the past few years is seeing non-traditional sites pop up as wedding venues. Jennifer and George latched onto this idea and chose Georgia’s Railroad Museum as the perfect location for their wedding reception. The couple effortlessly blended their styles for a chic wedding day, all captured and styled by Tory Williams and Morgan Gallo Events.

From the bride, Jennifer: George and I both have an appreciation for art and history, so we knew we wanted to incorporate these elements into the wedding. We chose Savannah for the location because we had both attended SCAD and because the laid-back vibe of the city mixed with with beautiful historic architecture gave the perfect feel. We loved the idea of mixing the soft colors and fluid designs of the art nouveau period (which I love) with turn of the century industrial feeling (which fits George’s aesthetic). We kept this mix in mind when we chose our locations.

Since both George and I are designers, we knew we wanted to incorporate as many personal details into the wedding as we could. One of the things we love to do together is to visit museums. In fact, George proposed to me at my favorite museum, the Met. To incorporate this we chose a work of art for each guest and printed special postcards which included the date and museum where we saw each piece. We used these for the RSVP cards as well as the escort cards. We also used the names of our favorite museums as the table names. George designed the table names to look like vintage subway signs, printed them out, and used a transfer technique to put them on wood panels. We also wanted to make sure our photo both had an artistic and original spin – we created our own props from some of our favorite paintings.

Berkeley Church Wedding

Elegant Weddings

Christine Lim

Any time Christine Lim and Sweet Woodruff collaborate, you can consider us happy wedding bloggers. From the Jenga guest book to the glittered Jimmy Choo heels, we soaked up all the details and fell in love with every single one. Just wait until you see the brilliant ivory and orange wedding cake from DT Bistro!

Berkeley church wedding - photo by Christine Lim http://ruffledblog.com/berkeley-church-wedding

From the bride, Rebecca: Between our family and closest friends, we knew we would have a guest list of around 140 people. At the same time, we wanted to keep the wedding as intimate as possible. We tried to achieve that by keeping the colours warm and more importantly, incorporating little touches of ourselves wherever we could. We love board games so we placed a Jenga set by the guestbook and asked everyone to jot down marriage advice on each of the blocks. For our bonbonnieres, we sourced little tins of tea sachets from our favourite tea company, and we wrapped each tin with ribbon from my favourite store (Mokuba). (When Darin proposed, he had tied the ring to a long strand of Mokuba ribbon!)

I’m not sure if we had an overall theme or style that we were trying to achieve, but we knew that there were certain things we just needed to have. String lights were a must – Christmas lights are a year-round decoration in our home! An added bonus, the warmth of the string lights looked so beautiful against the rustic backdrop of the old converted church where we celebrated. We also wanted to have long harvest tables, which felt more communal to us… like everyone is a part of one big family! The one other thing we knew we had to incorporate was our love for music. The reception part came easy – a good friend of ours had volunteered his DJ services as soon as we were engaged, and since he knows us so well we were comfortable giving him full reign of the evening. For the ceremony, we knew we had to find a specific someone but weren’t really sure how. One of our favourite places to go to while we were dating was a small creperie in Toronto, and on some weekends there would be an accordion player playing French-style cafe music. With a little google research we were able to connect with him, and we were so glad we did because having the accordion and clarinet play during the ceremony and cocktail hour was a definite highlight. They walked around amongst the guests during the cocktail hour, which really lent to a more intimate feel, and the sound of the music was so charming and old-worldly – a perfect match to our venue.

An exact colour scheme was hard to pin down, but in the end it became a mix of corals, peach, blush pink, and orange with touches of gold and silver. I was most excited about finding the dresses for each of the ladies in my bridal party – I knew I wanted them in different dresses all in neutral colours, and with a mix of texture (lace, brocade, etc). One of the DIY projects was putting together the seating chart. We had found a beautiful old wooden frame, not really knowing if it would be large enough to fit all of the place cards. With help from my bridesmaid, we stayed up one night measuring out twine to hang from the frame and properly spacing out all the cards to fit within it perfectly! Another project was the menu cards. Aside from ribbon, beautiful stationery/greeting cards is my weakness. Instead of printing out menu cards, I thought it would be a great idea to place cute Rifle Paper & Co. cards on the tables with the menu handwritten inside.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Don’t procrastinate! We had planned to take a few days off work leading up to the wedding day, so we ended up leaving quite a few things till the last minute. However, it just caused unnecessary stress and less hours of sleep! Try not to leave things like the seating arrangement and your thank-you speech till the week of the wedding – they ended up taking more time than we had expected.

Metallic Garden Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Day 7 Photography

Today’s styled shoot is a true experiment in classic romantic details – metallic tones, pinks, lush flowers, and a garden setting make this shoot truly shine. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have a team of incredibly talented vendors, including Day 7 Photography, Leave the Details To Me, and Flora Fetish, to execute the vision to utter perfection.

From the photographer, Sean of Day 7 Photography: Here’s a shoot I recently had the privilege of photographing. Some of Austin’s best vendors were involved and we all had a great time. The purpose of this shoot was the highlight the trend of silver and gold working together. We loved the contrast of this garden with metallics. The metallics in our details highlight the “glam” element while juxtaposing with the beautiful gardens and florals. Another element that we feel stood out was the use of a non-traditional bouquet. The horns mixed with florals and beads adds to the theme of garden metallics.

Winter Whites Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

To be honest, I’m not sure I can do this styled shoot justice, try though I might. You see, it’s that special kind of gorgeous that defies explanation, with its muted pink flowers, sparkling golds and silvers, and enough jewels to make your head spin. This beauty was styled to the nines by Heyday Events and captured by Natasha Hurley Photography.

From the event designers, Heyday Events: The styled shoot – ‘Northern Lights & Winter Brights’ – captures the clean, crispness of a Scandinavian winter with a dash of party sparkle and glamour. We wanted to find a freshness and new beauty in tradition, with the aim to inspire Brides to look at the exquisiteness of Winter with fresh merit. This take on Christmas encapsulates a ‘plaster and palette’ colour scheme with textures and colours being drawn from an original oil painting. These colours were translated throughout the styling with branching magnolia, grey roses, oil paint and cloth stationery, all illuminated by the warm candle light.

The clean, crisp lines full of Nordic sentiment were juxtaposed with the vintage imperfection of the exclusive London city wedding venue, MC Motors. This stunning wedding venue with its textured palette was set against the clean whites of the jewel encrusted Zaeem Jamal gowns. The morning winter sun was the perfect accompaniment to this shoot, the light danced off our beautiful couple and the Bride’s stunning diamond accessories; the abundance of natural light added to the luminosity & fresh winter feel. In addition, the red lip, sparklers and glowing candlelight added a twinkle of glamour that made us swoon! Retreating further into the incredible venue we were able to capture cozy moments too; candlelight embraced the gorgeous couple as its gentle flame lit the way into their new lives together. Akin to the freshness of winter and the new beginnings with the passing of the year, in marriage they enter a new life together… ‘They open a door and enter a world’ – as the insert for the Order of the Day quotes C.S Lewis.

The stationery was hand crafted to create a bespoke feel to this wedding and to reflect the Scandinavian style of the day. The Order of Service was a handmade book which told the story of the couple, with quotes inside to represent the beginning of a new story in the lives of the Bride and Groom. In addition the insert was taken from the original oil painting that inspired the colour scheme, this added texture and beauty to the book. The invitations had a hand-sewn crisp white cloth envelope with the couples’ initials on the front; this held the oil painted and calligraphy Invitations.

1920s Inspired Knoxville Wedding

Vintage Weddings

Photos by:

Dixie Pixel

This bride and I have something in common — we both have a soft spot for Art Deco and the 1920s. Something about this era seems so consistently elegant and opulent, and Dixie Pixel Photography nailed that very something in her photos from Adrienne and Will’s wedding. You’ll be swooning as soon as you see her portraits of the bride, which masterfully mix modern photography with vintage styling and technique.

From the bride, Adrienne: I loved the beauty, elegance and carefree feeling of the Art Deco era. We chose an old Catholic church that was built in 1926 for the ceremony. For our reception venue we chose The Emporium, a non profit are gallery in downtown Knoxville. The building itself was built in 1898 and was perfect for our theme. I chose to have my wedding dress made by Colleen Moore with White Orchid Bridal. Having my dress made was such a special and amazing process. It was so wonderful getting to meet with her to discuss ideas and to watch the dress come to life with each fitting. She also embellished my bridesmaids’ dresses to create a more cohesive look. Fourth Year Studio created the perfect invitation to portray the classic, elegant look of our upcoming wedding. Our caterer, Chef Mark Wischhusen, researched old menus from places like the Waldorf Astoria, The Stork Club and The Plaza on Central Park as inspiration for the menu. It was common to serve a “herbal drink” to aid the digestion of an upcoming meal. Chef Mark took that idea and put a modern twist on it by serving a ginger infused margarita. We also chose to have Pavlova for our wedding cake.

Will’s family has New Zealand heritage and I grew up dancing ballet. The desert was named after the famous ballerina Anna Pavlova when she toured the country in 1926 and it is one of our favorite desserts. We also served New Zealand sauvignon blanc as one of our wines and used New Zealand lamb on our menu. When I was little my father and I loved going to yard sales. One time when I was about 7, I found this small straight pin with a funny little bird on it. My dad told me it was a kiwi bird and he bought it for me. I still had it and had it with me on my wedding day.

I wanted the wedding to be clean and bright. My colors were champagne and other metallics. I used touches of orange-red in my flowers for a pop of color. I wanted people to know the significance of why we chose certain menu idems, so even though we had a buffet I had menus at each place setting that talked about some of the history and importance of our selections. I had purchased different art deco and some art nouveau postcards online. Some were old advertisements for food, fashion, and travel and some were just pictures of people or historical events of that time. I used the postcards as the cover to my menus. I wanted more texture on the table and it was really hard to find art deco fabric or paper that I liked. I ended up finding specialty wallpaper with an art deco print that I cut and placed on the table. And then we come to my stars… I loved the idea of hanging star lights and I found some plain 9 pointed ones online. So then I began to bedazzle them…. and bedazzle them… and bedazzle them some more. I mixed 4 different kinds of glitter together to get the right look and hung smaller stars and beads from them. They were absolutely the most time consumes venture of the whole wedding but I was very happy with how they turned out. I gave extra beads to my florist to hang off the centerpieces to help tie in the look. Colleen Moore with White Orchid Bridal had a giant crescent moon that she let me borrow for the reception. One of my bridesmaids painted it and one of the groomsmen made and stand for it.

I chose to have a string trio for the ceremony music. My husband’s family is Methodist so I incorporated some old hymns for the mothers and the wedding party to walk down to. For the reception I downloaded original songs from the 1910s, 20’s, and 30’s and had our DJ play them during the cocktail/dinner hour and then transition into dance music when the time was right.
