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.

Bohemian Styled Southern Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Pasha Belman

Pasha Belman Photography and Blossoms Events really pulled out all the stops with this one. This creative team put together two incredible tablescapes with modern inspiration and a slight touch of nostalgia, bringing in the best that farm-to-table has to offer. Don’t you just love the hanging sunflower display?

From the event designers, Blossoms Events: Wildberry Farm’s organic elegance inspired us to create designs that were both proper and pastoral with just a whisper of nostalgia. We honed in on a mostly modern aesthetic by building asymmetry and boldness into the designs. This proved challenging, as we wanted to ensure that the designs were appropriate to the rustic setting and that no element of the shoot felt out of place. To create harmony between contemporary and country, we invoked feelings of whimsy and thwarted the overly-orderly. We relied heavily on texture and methodical bloom-placement, delicately situating heady roses amongst sculptural twigs and textural foliage. All of these elements ultimately generated a look that we feel embodies a spritely sophistication, paying homage to the feeling at Wildberry Farm that we love.

Whimsical Winery Wedding in California

Rustic Weddings

Photos by:

Gideon Photography

This is one wedding that never fails to make us smile, no matter how many times we look at it. How can we resist, with the vibrant sunflowers, jewel tones, and handmade touches? A crew of amazing vendors including Gideon Photography, When Pigs Fly Events, and Layers of Lovely made Ashley and Brian’s dream day a reality, and you may just remember the darling bride from when we shared her cookie decorating bridal shower a while back!

From the bride, Ashley: The minute we entered the driveway to Quivira, we knew we had found “the one.” Like the moment I met Brian, like the moment I tried on my wedding dress, Quivira was the same “a-ha” moment. In my mind, I pictured myself getting married surrounded by sunflowers. I grew up on a farm with horses, chickens, and pigs. I also own a company called “Road Apples” where I makes organic treats for horses, dogs, and pigs. My design team, When Pigs Fly Events, really took the personal details of my life and transferred that to a cohesive wedding scheme. I wanted everything to feel inviting like you were ‘coming home to the ranch for a big family dinner.’ At every turn you were greeted by smiling sunflowers and ranch inspired details like the vintage horseshoes that were stuffed into floral pieces, large overturned crates of apples, and buckets of wheat.

My favorite part of the wedding day was dining in the vineyard with our friends and family. This was the truly magical moment of the day and when I felt like my vision of ‘a big family dinner’ came to life. We had a farm to table dinner under a gorgeous canopy of foliage and grapes – completely erected for our event. It actually looked and felt like it had been there forever. It was a magnificent setting and we loved the moment. Green and yellow were the dominant colors throughout the wedding. I asked all of my bridesmaids to choose a green dress that they loved. The sunflowers in our bouquets and the floral treatments provided that sunny pop of color that complemented the Quivira grounds and quaint yellow barn on the property so well. As an ode to the farm, we had a 5′ horse topiary made to welcome guests into the ceremony gardens. The cocktail hour had chickens and roosters in different areas including the “Get Yo’ Cocktail On” sign at the bar, on the custom made napkins, and the metal cork collectors.

Our after party at Barn Diva was an amazing way to end the night. As an entirely different venue, we wanted to change up the mood from the vineyard. We wanted some fantastical elements including unicorns and nods to the 80s. We had an ice luge in the shape of a unicorn from which guests took shots of martinis! And, the spiked milkshakes really hit the spot. I loved every moment of the day.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? My biggest advice would be to make the day a reflection of you as a couple. Don’t be afraid to include some out-of-the-box ideas, inside jokes, and design elements. Make it about you. I wanted to give Brian a groom’s cake shaped like a steak because it’s a joke we share. He said that he decided to propose the night he did because “he just ate the best steak he had ever had and felt like the moment couldn’t be more perfect to ask me to be his wife.” I was also super excited to make my special homemade strawberry jam for my guests as a wedding favor! These are the details that you will remember forever. Beautiful can live in the same world as Unique. Also, let the day develop organically and don’t be afraid to throw control out the window and be surprised. You will be so inspired by the outpouring of love and thoughtfulness of the special people in your life if you encourage them to see the day as a platform for love.

Sunflower Field Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

CJK Visuals

There are few things I can imagine more romantic than a wedding day in a field of flowers. This shoot’s photographer, CJK Visuals, scouted a sunflower field in Annapolis that blooms for only a few weeks each year and brought along an amazing team to create cheery wedding goodness, including lemon & lime event design and Flowers & Fancies. With plenty of sunflowers, succulents, and paper goods to go around, this one is sure to inspire!

From the photographer, Caitlin of CJK Visuals: When I had heard about this incredible sunflower field that blooms for a few weeks every year, I knew I needed to take advantage of it for an incredible styled shoot! These flowers made the perfect backdrop for a transition into fall. Lemon and Lime Event Design did an amazing job designing this “sunflower and succulents” themed shoot. They brought in b.Willow to create custom mini-terrariums that would later serve as guest cards and a DIY terrarium station. As a favor to the guests, what could be better for a sunflower field wedding than a homemade jar of chocolate covered sunflower seeds!

We kept the colors and decor very natural, with pops of gold and a little bit of crystal to contrast the muted colors of the succulents. Our model, former Miss Maryland, Kasey Staniszewski, was a modern day Pocahontas with her fishtailed braid done by Up Do’s For I Do’s. She couldn’t have looked more beautiful surrounded by all of those sunflowers while wearing her Watters wedding gown.

Irvine Circus Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

Jagger Photography

How can you go wrong with a good circus-themed wedding? Jagger Photography was behind the camera for a wedding filled to the brim with DIY projects, bold colors, and cakes from Beverly’s Best that tie everything together seamlessly. Truly, this beauty of a party wedding is jam-packed with great ideas, so let’s jump on in!

From the bride, Kady: We wanted a romantic feeling, but we also wanted a casual and fun environment. We wanted it to feel like a great party celebrating our love. Our wedding was inspired by a vintage circus theme. We loved the feeling of creating a canopy with lights and vintage parasols, while still enjoying the beauty of a rustic outdoor venue. Along with vintage circus elements, our color palette consisted of black and white stripes and bold jewel tones. Our theme lent itself to many fun DIY projects: center pieces, bouquets, boutonnieres, invitations, ceremony backdrop and the ring bearers pillow were all handmade. We also created many different stations that were heavily decorated with DIY projects, including our “souvenir table” (ie. favors) and our cigar bar.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Establish your budget early on and stay true to it. Decide what elements you’re willing to splurge on and book those vendors first. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. You will have many people offer their services in one way or another – take them up on it! They wouldn’t be offering if they didn’t love you. We were very fortunate to have the amazingly talented SOS Entertainment & Jagger Photography in our family. We definitely lucked out having the DJ and photographer as siblings since those vendors were most important to us. The DJ truly sets the mood of the wedding and keeps the flow throughout the celebration. After months, sometimes years of planning, the day/night tends to fly by, details and candid moments get missed, so having an amazing photographer is key. It’s incredible being able to relive your special day, moments you may have missed and memories shared with your guests all thanks to your photographer! Last but not least… don’t lose sight of what the day is truly about… celebrating love.
