You’ve heard people say “hang on to your hats”, but you may want to throw them away entirely after spotting the dramatic floral headpiece in today’s pretty French Flower Market inspiration from our New Orleans Styled Social Event earlier this fall. A total celebration of flora + fauna, every image has us inching closer to the screen to admire such darling details as handpainted cakes, floral printed neckties and fringed napkins atop vintage petal-filled china. Heck, even the engagement ring is inspired by flowers! So huddle up with us as we dig in deeper to these images so beautiful, even Mother Nature would frame them!

New Orleans wedding photographer, Mon Soleil, is no stranger to impeccable beauty, so no angle was left uncaptured. Spoiler alert: this wedding inspo has no bad sides!

We’ll be marveling at these designs from Brooke Casey Weddings for a lifetime. With such perfection as a courtyard bistro table bedecked with an ombre floral runner, would you expect anything less?

Romantic script in modern brush calligraphy decorates this emerald invitation suite from Paper Refinery with an illustrated crest to boot! Three cheers for these whimsical tassels to hold it all together too.

It’s official. Chasing Wang is the Beyonce of the cake world. Not sure what that means? Basically, she’s queen.

This bride came to SLAY with a shiny new Jenny Yoo gown complete with a plunging v-neck silhouette and dramatic paneled wings! Are cascading sleeves like these the new bridal cape?

Equally as handsome is the groom’s tailored suit from Stitch & Tie in a rich hunter green.
