On Cloud Nine Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

I’m beyond enamored of this afternoon’s photoshoot goodness from nbarrett photography, Grit + Gold, and Bows and Arrows. Dreaming up of a On Cloud 9 inspired wedding, this shoot has pops of pink, ribbon streamers galore, fluffy clouds of hydrangeas, and scrumptious goodies from Culinary Arts and Layered Bake Shop. Make sure you catch the behind-the-scenes video by I Do Cinematics at the end to get the full experience!

From the event stylist, Lottie: When we pulled together to think up the On Cloud 9 shoot, it was a must to incorporate all things heavenly. We wanted soft textured touches in the floral and details throughout to give a feel of floating on a cloud. From the hanging tabletop to the lush floral cloud above, this shoot encompasses all that is whimsy and romantic. Yes that is an actual cloud!! A dreamy, predominate white background was chosen while weaving gold and hues of pink all in an ombre’d effect.

A dip dyed muslin runner was DIY’d and pooled on each side of the table, which coordinated so lovely with the cascading ribbons from above. Both tying beautifully into a matching ombre invitation suite. And you cannot fail to notice the wonderfully constructed floral head piece, bouquet and cotton boutonnières. Desserts were carefully chosen and display the soft touches and flavors of a croquembouche cake, mini waffles, staked crepe cake, meringue puffs, and mini cotton candy puffs. Our cute couple played and laughed while sipping from their “Love Floats”.

Midsummer Night’s Dream Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Few things conjure up the image of romance more quickly than Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. The incredible design team of Bows and Arrows conjured up this styled shoot to celebrate the love and beauty found within its pages, with endless amounts of luscious flowers and candlelit spots, captured to perfection by Apryl Ann Photography.

midsummer nights dream wedding

I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.
—Oberon describes Titania’s bower, where she sleeps.

From the stylist, Bows and Arrows: Shakespeare knew a thing or two about romance. Of all his works, “A Mid-Summer Night’s Dream” best evokes the magic and romance of a summer wedding day. In this shoot we recreated that magic and whimsy through opulent florals, cakes and tarts worthy of the queen of fairies and a dress sent from the gods. White Rock Lake Park was chosen as the backdrop of the shoot to showcase the natural beauty of the wild south. As we all know there is nothing more extraordinary than a candlelit southern summer evening with your love, fireflies winking at you like fairies in the trees, and the smell of wild honeysuckle in the air.

Dallas Spring Wedding

Romantic Weddings

With the incredible team of vendors this Dallas wedding has, it’s no wonder it’s such a stunner. It’s the nuptials ofApryl Ann, who you may also know as an incredible photographer! The floral arrangements from Bows and Arrows are making our heads spin with their beauty, the darling stationery from Southern Fried Paper is just breathtaking, and the images from Squaresville Studios capture every detail to perfection. And then there’s bride Apryl’s wedding gown… just amazing.

From the bride, Apryl: From all the big decisions to the all the little decisions that go into planning one of the happiest days of our lives Jon and I had the main priority of taking things slow. We wanted to really soak in the day and enjoy every minute and every detail.

We share a love for modern decor and wanted our wedding to bring in natural, bohemian touches while keeping things simple. As a wedding photographer, I knew I would be working with my favorite vendors and friends and wanted to give them direction but at the same time letting them have creative control to do what they do best. Bows + Arrows did an amazing job with our florals. They created a fresh-picked, bohemian vibe with mismatched elements such as cacti in gold pots, lush whimsical flowers spilling from black urns, air plants and succulents, and touches of turquoise, cobalt blue and green.

We knew we wanted to do a first look for many reasons but one big reason was to have plenty of time to enjoy ourselves at our party. We also decided to eat our dinner alone during cocktail hour. This was such a great idea! It was so romantic to have time by ourselves after bring married. Then we said our hello’s to everyone during dinner. Our first dance was to acoustic version “Big Me” by the Foo Fighters and the rest of the night was a dance party! We also opted out of traditions such as a bouquet toss and garter toss in order to spend more time on the dance floor :) Oh and lots of cafe lights!!!

Farm Inspired Bridal Shower

Wedding Design

Photos by:

We love it when bridesmaids run wild with ideas for a bridal shower, so we were delighted when this styled shoot from Grit + Gold landed in our inbox! Lottie took the idea of “milk maids” and ran with it, creating a flavored milk station, a spread of gourmet cheeses and scones, and ice cream cartons. We’re also huge fans of the “Will You Be My Bridesmaid” handkerchiefs!

From the event stylist, Lottie: I have been scheming up a sweet little shoot that is solely focused on bridesmaids just having fun. Finally, it has arrived. With the help of great friends, one sweet little house belonging to The Wooly Thistle and lots of farm critters, behold! This shoot is so southern, it’s breathtaking. Details include a flavored milk station, Blue Bell mini carton ice cream setup, one sweet and southern porch table setting, gourmet variety cheeses, pancakes, biscuits, farm fresh eggs, ahh! Everything sweet about the south, all in one shoot! Stationary details by Southern Fried Paper include custom “Will you be my Bridesmaid” vintage hankies, paper banners, place cards and cookie favor milk cartons.

Wildcatter Ranch Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Photos by:

This wedding shot by Natalie of nbarrett photography and planned by A Stylish Soiree is one of those that just makes you instantly happy. Maybe it’s the amazing ranch setting, or all the bright and cheery pops of color, or the clearly-madly-in-love newlyweds, maybe it’s all of it. If you’re looking to inject your wedding day full of color, look no further:

newlyweds in field

From the bride, Stephanie: When we were deciding where we were going to have our wedding, I wanted the location to reflect both of our tastes. I am an antique lover and Brian loves the outdoors. We wanted to combine both of those loves into the style and feel of our wedding.

Our day was a mix of shabby chic with modern day bright colors. Our color scheme was orange and teal from one end of the spectrum to the other. We didn’t want it to be matchy-matchy. There were many DIY projects involved. We made a “Love Story Chalkboard”, a fabric Thank You Banner, and hand sewn programs.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? My advice to future brides is to take the planning one step at a time. I became overwhelmed many times during the planning process, and I neglected to focus on the fact that I was marrying my best friend.

Mexican Inspired Florals

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Don’t these colors give you a jolt of happiness? These fiesta inspired floral arrangements from Bows and Arrows are absolutely divine, from the bouquet with its loose ribbons to the incredibly unique boutonnieres for the gents! Natalie of nbarrett photography captured this shoot that is simply a goldmine of gorgeous inspiration on any budget. We just can’t help ourselves but obsess over those mini terra cotta pots with bold blooms, paired with confetti and die cut place cards, all designed to perfection.
