It’s no secret where in a constant pursuit of pretty. So when this gaw-geous gallery landed in our inbox, it was a hard yes to sharing it with the rest of the world! There’s softness in the colors, crispness in the textures and solidity in the contemporary design that looks like it was made for the venue. We love this colorful twist on luxe wedding inspiration, and will be marveling at it forever!
Behind the lens is documentary style wedding photographer, Cavin Elizabeth. A long-time Ruffled Member, it’s always a pleasure featuring her bright + airy work and we love the stories she tells.
Lindsay Coletta brings us flowers from a secret garden, tying in dusty ribbons of plant-dyed silk. Shades of plum honey and ballerina pink decorate the arrangements, as alabaster petals shine brightly throughout.
Molly McKinley Designs is the artist who made this not-so-blank canvas her own – and it totally works! The blend of deep colors draws us closer to the screen, and so does her intricate weaving of textures. Acrylic, wax, chiffon, leather, and silk to name a few!
From the stylist, Molly McKinley Designs: Surrounded by the most beautiful skyline views, our team drew primary inspiration from the stunning details of The Four Seasons Atlanta. A soft palette of blues and greys creates a serene atmosphere inside the luxury hotel. The modern patterns and contemporary art displayed throughout compliment Atlanta’s urban cityscape.
Jennifer C Neiman highlights the bride’s natural beauty with soft waves and a dewy makeup look.
By using moody colors and organic elements, we juxtaposed the venue’s modern feel with natural textures and silhouettes. Mauve, blush, caramel, and deep purple played beautifully with the existing venue palate. A tinted gown brought a unique twist to the more classic elements of day, as The Four Seasons generally hosts more traditional affairs. The couple’s cake, inspired by local Atlanta artist Renee Bouchon, feels like an abstract of the city. Soft hand-calligraphy and taper candles added a romance to the evening. The couple’s beautiful ceremony on the terrace under cafe lights led into a “speakeasy” cocktail hour and an intimate, relaxed dinner.
We’d be remiss to not point out how quickly we fell for this citrine engagement ring from Chaplin’s Jewelry. Pear-shaped gemstone GOALS!
Our bride is a hopeless romantic. Her appreciation of clean lines and midcentury design only competes with her love for soft, overflowing florals and handmade paper. By combining these two styles, we created an affair that is lively and imaginative, like the ever-changing city that surrounds.
We’re deeply in love with this gown from Carol Hannah. If this isn’t compelling bridal fashion, then we don’t know what is!
The Modern Gent is responsible for the groom’s refined wedding day look. No shortage of suave here!
We’re giving much ado about this abstract cake from Lush Cakery – too pretty to cut into, but wayyyy delicious, we’re sure. Don’t you see our dilemma?
