New England Wedding Inspiration with a Honey Velvet Tablescape
There’s a feeling of euphoria in the air today. Especially after an impromptu swoonfest over this soft New England wedding inspiration whose middle name has to be Autumn. Seriously, anyone else getting some Gilmore Girls vibes here? Hand-dyed gauzy napkins and a honey-colored tablescape (in velvet!) were enough to have us hooked, but the bride’s heirloom veil captivated us entirely. Prepare for the fall wedding inspiration you never knew you needed!
J. Harper Photography may be responsible for these 1000000% stunning images, but hey, you can thank her for the concept too. Grazie, Jackie!
Color was the name of the game for Tarrnation Flower Farm who designed everything from the vibrant bouquet to the loosely twisted (and poetically romantic) stairwell garlands.
Count on Silk + Willow to deliver the most breathtaking plant-dyed silks. The bouquet’s trailing ribbons even have a subtle botanical print on them!
This dreamy gold calligraphy from Emily Rose Ink has us ready to pull up a seat at this feast.
Where can you recreate this scene? Pecketts On Sugar Hill is your answer. We’re not-so-casually flipping out over these gorgeous nature views in the heart of the fall season.
Such fairytale romance in this sweeping gown from Carol Hannah Bridal!
From the photographer, Jackie of J. Harper Photography: Nothing screams New England like the change of the seasons and Autumn is one of the ultimate sources of inspiration; from the colors to the natural elements we see in the surroundings, this shoot came together with hopes of inspiring couples to embrace bold palettes, especially when the season calls for it!
While arranging the details of this styled shoot, we found ourselves continually coming back to the idea of a burnt-orange hue that complemented today’s modern, whimsical, bold, and sophisticated bride. We knew that ignoring a softer palette altogether wouldn’t match our styles so we were sure to incorporate more delicate hues of blush and grey with the addition of stone and wooden textures that truly brought the shoot to life. All of this made it simple to decide on the flowing, organic gown from Carol Hannah Bridal and subsequently the heirloom pieces from Hushed Commotion.
Like so many couples who are planning their weddings, we wanted the feel and overall aesthetic of the shoot to be cohesive throughout; this meant that everything from the paper goods to the signature cocktail needed to carry that bold, vibrant autumn feel while still maintaining the softness of a traditional bridal look. The bouquet was so beautifully composed by Vanessa at Tarrnation Flower Farm and is a perfect testament to our overall vision: that is, you can incorporate bold and saturated hues into your wedding decor without it feeling overly moody or, let’s face it, halloween-y.
This pastel color block cake from Henny B’s Cakes is giving us serious dessert envy.
Joanna and Chip Gaines have brought some serious light into our lives. And this table decor from Magnolia is exhibit A. Not to mention, J+C have had some pretty credible influence over all kinds of wedding events, and boy do we hope it keeps coming!
How cute is this idea for a welcome bag? Gin from Barr Hill Spirits and some honey too – you can incorporate these elements in the wedding to continue the theme!
If we could style our hair and makeup like this look from Jennifer Perellie everyday, we’d be doing quite alright.
We don’t want to be dramatic, but give us velvet or give us death. Thanks, La Tavola for providing the former.
