Buzzworthy Events

Hey there! I’m Ashley, a wedding planner based out of San Francisco planning weddings around the world. Creating an event is something that I value. Not only is an event purposeful but one should be well crafted and beautiful. I don’t believe in sacrificing one element for the other. I believe that purpose, craft, design, and strategy are all cohesive elements to produce a successful event. Weddings are so much more than just a celebration or a pretty tabletop, there is connectivity and flow. From these an opportunity for you and your guests to be enchanted, to be a part of an experience you’ll carry away with you. Have you ever been a part of something where you were swept away by your current state that you forgot whatever else was going on in the world? Where it feels like you’re part of something that only matters right then and in that moment? Creating that experience comes from the energy and love put into planning the event.

Lets be friends. No, seriously though, lets!

I do far more than just plan weddings. I travel, I cook, I laugh (a lot), I play, I hike, I challenge myself, I take risks and I am constantly growing. I love people and adventure. I try new things. I am curious. I have high standards. I listen. I create. I do. Take the time to get to know me and I’ll do the same for you. I am highly intuitive with people and take on personal missions to make your wedding the most suited to you and your dreams as possible. The planning process can be overwhelming and overstimulating. Let’s face it, no one wants to do it on their own, so let’s work together!

I am available for weddings in California and worldwide. Fun fact, I am certified by the board of tourism in Mexico to plan and work there. I have spent years visiting the Riviera Maya + Tulum as well as other regions in Mexico, like Baja California Sur. Tulum is hands down one of my favorite places on earth. If I am not in San Francisco planning weddings and being social, you’ll find me on the beach at BeTulum, Coqui Coqui, Papaya Playa, or exploring the coast lines in Central America.

Alchemy Inspired Wedding Editorial

Wedding Design

Here’s an absolutely inspiring wedding styled shoot with a botanical, ethereal feel. With its clean and modern palette of creamy whites and various shades of soft green, Julie Paisley Photography captured the natural styling of Cedarwood Weddings‘ alchemy-themed wedding shoot. Adding geodes and quartz to wedding tablescapes and other decor elements are a hot wedding trend right now, and we love how the white quartz is perched as a cake topper. Our eyes are loving those tulips, but we’re so smitten over the foliage and the greenery, especially as they snake out in the terrariums. Such a fun concept!

white and green wedding colors - https://ruffledblog.com/alchemy-inspired-wedding-editorial

From the event designer, Cedarwood Weddings: Our Alchemy wedding inspiration uses natural elements like quartz crystals, minerals, and light to elevate event design to an ethereal expression of love. Styling is subtle, a delicate balance of earth and fire. Hues of pale green and mint floral and décor – including hand blown glass terrariums encasing mysteriously exotic air plants – are elegantly natural. Candlelight warms and reflects the neutral reception setting, as sunlight illuminates our gorgeous bride’s golden hour photo session with Julie Paisley.

Vellum invitations and paper goods continue the touch of lightness in design. Elements are carefully curated to represent the connection between heaven and earth, including rock candy decorated cocktails and cake, and an altar of branches grounding a suspended installation of candles and air plants. Guests participate in the mystery with unopened crystal geode favors. Carol Hannah’s AZURITE gown, which “celebrates feminine strength and mystery”, is stunning both in the color and luxurious use of fine flowing fabrics that gracefully drape our bride as she frolics in the estate meadow. Carol Hannah’s Dew Headpiece is a fine embellishment of glass beading and brass wire that is flexible enough to use in any hairstyle.

Game of Thrones on the Beach Wedding Editorial

The More We See

Who’s a “Game of Thrones” fanatic over here? Raise your hand proudly and if your spirit animal is Daenerys, you’re going to fawn over this ultra-creative shoot from the lens of The More We Seebelovely floral and event design wondered what the Mother of Dragons’ wedding day would look like if she decided to get hitched, and it’s nothing short of amazing. With a beach-boho vibe and a striking black dress separate, we think Dany would definitely approve of this intimate wedding inspiration.

From the event designers, belovely floral and event design: When we thought about doing a beach photo shoot, we wanted to put a creative spin on it. For any East Coast (Philadelphia/Jersey) residents, a ‘wedding down the shore’ always has that typical nautical vibe going with it, and we wanted to try something new! At the time of planning our photo shoot, Game of Thrones was still running and we thought to ourselves, “What if Daenerys got married?”

We found ourselves answering with a beach wedding filled with rich tones, textures, unexpected elements and of course a touch of “fire.” For a girl who is always wearing white or blue, we envisioned her in a beautiful black wedding gown allowing her to really pop off the oceanic landscapes. We designed the shoot to of course have a few coastal touches (cause you can’t fully ignore the ocean!) along with Moroccan and bad-ass elements – Mother of Dragons is nothing short of the toughest girl we know!

Waterfall Elopement Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

If you’re in need of a gorgeous setting for a wedding or a shoot, there’s really nothing like stepping outside of the box (literally) and heading outdoors. Chelsea Q. White Photography and Ivory & Lace Events headed to their nearest dreamy waterfall, took one look at it, and the ideas for this shoot began to form. To contrast the rugged look of their surroundings, they went for softness everywhere: in the styling and in the muted colors with little pops of brightness thanks to the florals by Moss Floral Design.

From the photographer, Chelsea Q. White Photography: Both Kristen (of Ivory & Lace Events) and I wanted to create a romantic, intimate editorial centered around this gorgeous waterfall just north of the Texas-Oklahoma border. With such beautiful and raw scenery, we wanted to keep the elements minimal yet romantic and organic – something a bride could easily attain if she opted for a low-key wedding celebration.

We imagine our bride, SaraBeth, setting the scene with details like linen napkins and delicate escort cards. The Truvelle gown was the perfect combination of feminine and yet unfussy for a wedding in the outdoors. Her tousled fishtail braid and sweet makeup enhanced her girlish style yet looked natural enough that she could’ve done it on her own. The wild, unstructured flowers added a hint of bohemia to the shoot. We loved the way Moss Floral incorporated the raw silk ribbon from Silk & Willow in the bouquet and a few pops of color in the centerpiece in an otherwise muted environment. As SaraBeth prepared for the big day, we imagined her penning a heartfelt love note to her beholden, the one for whom she waited at the waterfall.

From the planner, Kristen of Ivory & Lace EventsDuring the Christmas holiday last year, I did a lot of hiking with my husband and it turned out to be a huge source of inspiration for this shoot. I wanted to create a look that drew heavily on nature and the natural beauty of the environment that I witnessed during hiking. I wanted an atmosphere that was as elegantly otherworldly as it was natural. The organic beauty of Turner Falls was where we drew inspiration from and was really the cornerstone of the shoot.

There’s no better way to capture a beautifully natural environment with bountiful blooms, free flowing water and long-lingering light. We paired blush-hued florals with soft green foliage and long branches loosely nestling them together in a way that made them seem like they were spilling out of their vases. The long silk ribbon blew in the wind as if to mimic the flow of the waterfall. The gown offers a soft look which was elegantly paired to the ethereal texture of the rocks and surrounding elements. The highlight of this shoot is captured through the colors of the waterfall and the delicate palette that was carefully chosen to balance out the rough terrain of Turner Falls.

Alexis June Weddings

Hello beautiful! We’re Brandi + Ryan, the husband-wife photographers behind Alexis June Weddings. So who is Alexis June? They are the two loves of our life, our daughters, Kierstyn {whose middle name is Alexis} and Kaija {who was born in June}. Two years ago we sold everything we own to pursue our dreams and move across the country to NYC. We’ve been married for nine years and still crazy in love. Ryan speaks Norwegian. Brandi loves everything about Norway. Ryan has his MBA from Notre Dame, but loves to cook. Brandi was a journalist in the United States Air Force and eats everything Ryan cooks. Together with our girls we live in Atlanta, Georgia and cherish every day together.

Being wedding photographers is an honor and a privilege, to be a part of one of the most important moments in a someone’s life is deeply personal. Capturing a couple’s love story together makes what we do even more special. We have laughed, we have cried and we have experienced those joyous moments when its more about two individuals joining as one and less about the details. It’s about the marriage. It’s about the future. Love is a gorgeous thing and we are truly passionate about what we do. We believe everyone has a story and it should be told.

This is our story, what is yours?

Modern Botanical Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

The team behind today’s shoot, which includes Keira Lemonis Photography, Mary Elise Rees Event Design, and Dark + Diamond, was inspired by their invitation suite to create an urban greenhouse styled wedding. Then came lush greenery, shades of pink and purple, and a real-life couple so adorable our hearts just might explode!

modern botanical wedding inspiration - photo by Keira Lemonis Photography https://ruffledblog.com/modern-botanical-wedding-inspiration

From the even designer, Mary Elise Rees Event Design: Initially inspired by the invitation suite, “Artfully Ever After” from Wedding Paper Divas, I wanted to create a story around something lighthearted and modern. We also wanted to create a sort of urban greenhouse vibe that would be fun for couples getting married in the spring or summertime. We found the Lucas Confectionery in downtown Troy, which has a back-enclosed garden patio, complete with a glass rooftop. This venue lets in tons of natural light and has funky greens growing within its brick walls. Dark and Diamond created florals based around our greenhouse theme, as well as the fun color palette on the invitation. There is also an array of unique air plants scattered about the venue.

From Tufted Vintage Rentals: This editorial was designed to encapsulate our organic interpretation of the bohemian style. Conceptualized by Glitz Events, Tufted Vintage Rentals and Citrus Press Co, we focused on a natural, earthy aesthetic and the healing powers of metaphysical elements to create a neutral, yet moody shoot with some edgier moments throughout. Inspired by materials from nature, our team sought to feature soft textures of macramé, lace and wool juxtaposed with raw, earthy elements of wood, stones and crystals.

The raw backdrop of the Rialto theatre, a 1920s theatre with original exposed brick walls and one stellar arch, was the perfect setting. We even incorporated industrial letters from the buildings original signage. Floral arrangements focused on neutral toned flowers paired with earthy and natural elements such as fungi pods and air plants mixed with greenery including seeded eucalyptus and plumose for texture. Air plant terrariums with gemstone accents were sprinkled throughout the shoot. The bouquet featured one large tillandsia air plant with dried fungi, greenery and dusty miller.

When creating the tablescape we layered textures of lace with fringe placemats and paired the soft elements with warm wood tones and edgy black accents. Air plants, greenery, wheat and cattails were arranged in mismatched clear glass vessels. We decided to use mismatched flatware in mixed tones of silver, wood and gold. Pieces of agate and stone place card holders tied in our rock and crystal theme. Wicker and wood chairs warmed up the sterile feel of the industrial chairs. Unique aspects of our editorial include the ode to metaphysical healing powers. We created a favor station featuring healing crystals that complimented our color scheme. We also incorporated incense as well as a sage smudge, which is an ancient practice used to attract positive energy. To take advantage of Rialto’s expansive space and cozy corners, we created a ceremony with a hand-made macramé backdrop as well as a lounge to showcase unique vintage pieces in wicker and Mexican equipales chairs.

There are travel inspired details everywhere you look, and we love the photographer’s advice to decorate your wedding with things that carry special meaning in your own life.

From the photographer, Dawn Photography: When I began planning this Galileo Inspired Wedding, I was drawn to bring in organic, natural and nostalgic pieces. The vintage compasses and telescope, the deep blues, greens and golds that decorated the tables, the beautiful tree that completely draped over the entire wedding. The bouquet was created with such organic and natural pieces, including artichokes, air plants, and blackberries. The decor was collaborated by so many wonderful vendors to tie in this theme. The bride in the photos created the incredible backdrop, the painted compasses and the other signage.

Plan My Wedding Please

Ever since I was in grade school, I was obsessed with my penmanship. I would not turn in my homework until it was perfect; it drove my mom crazy! I practiced writing every chance I had and eventually fell in love with this art form. Little did I know, it would be the reason I would fall in love with the wedding industry.

Debonair Wedding at The Wythe Hotel

Modern Weddings

Photos by:

Amber Gress

This stylish wedding at Brooklyn’s brilliantly modern Wythe Hotel is calling our name, lovely readers. Amber Gress and Tinsel & Twine contributed majorly to one heck of a party wedding for Kurt and Kyle, a truly cosmopolitan couple who knows how to have fun. There are TONS of great details and goodies to share here, so take some time to soak it all in!

From the grooms, Kurt and Kyle: We met while studying abroad in Prague in the Fall of 2009. Kyle proposed in December 2013 at St Mark’s Church in the East Village (our meet up spot during college). We didn’t notice until later that Kyle proposed right above an astrological compass cemented in the square. The astrology theme tied reminded us of the famous astrological clock in Prague and it’s what ultimately led us to our design motif of constellations/stars/etc.

When deciding the look and feel of our wedding, one word came to mind: Chic. We wanted a neutral color palette that felt traditional and romantic, but as a juxtaposition to The Wythe’s amazing industrial details like exposed brick, raw air ducts, and graffit’d walls. Tinsel & Twine paired loose wild flowers with really cool, unique details like gold and glass geometric shapes as a nod to our shared love of Czech Cubism. Besides the food and the music and the decorations (!!!) one of the biggest hits of the night was our custom photobooth backdrop: a custom step-and-repeat with our wedding logo and an illustrated portrait of our dog, Butter, lovingly and skillfully created by Meghan of And Here We Are. Guests loved it. We literally had to drag people out at points in the night.

From the event designer, Erica of Tinsel & Twine: Our first meeting with Kurt & Kyle began with a bottle of rose and ended with an in-depth talk about astrology signs. It was love at first Air Sign. We had a blast working with an A-team vendor line-up. We’re seeing a big trend towards cocktail style weddings like Kurt & Kyle’s. We love this departure from the traditional wedding format because it allows guests to let loose and celebrate from start to finish. It feels very Now, and very New York. Traditional with a twist.

Palm Springs Wedding for a Creative Bride and Groom

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

Laura Goldenberger

Laycee and Jon’s wedding is so chock full of great design it’ll make your head spin. The creative couple (the bride is a designer while the groom is a cinematographer) had their hands all over the day, right down to the creative Save-the-Date video you’ll see at the very end. Laura Goldenberger and next saturday affairs did remarkable work on this one, as always!

From the bride, Laycee: We love the mid Century modern style of our venue Frederick Loewe Estate. The architecture has clean lines, geometric sculptures, design books with large Swiss typography, etc, which is all a cohesive design language used throughout our wedding. The surroundings of the venue is an expansive and beautiful desert-chic landscape. We used this contrast between geometry and organic shapes on everything from our invitation, place cards to welcome signs. We thought that this contrast creates more energy and interest rather than the hand-written, DIY look a lot of other weddings have.

All the napkins and table runners were hand-made from a few different geometric patterned fabric we chose. All the table numbers were house numbers from home depot, spray painted gold. The little geometric shapes holding up the name cards were made from clay, cut into unique shapes and baked in the oven to harden. Quite a few of the geometric shaped terrariums were made from 90s lamps, with the light bulbs and cords removed. The 2 white columns with the clear casing on top at our altar were also custom made. I designed our own letterpress wedding invitation, all the place cards, name cards, welcome signs and all other collaterals. The wedding favors were designed by me as well: a pair of letter press coasters in black and white, with gold patterns. Our Save the Date was a collaboration between Jon and I. I design for a living and he produces video for a living. This piece is a perfect example of the magic we create together, and a “making of” teaser of the real wedding invitation.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? I think the trick to planning a great wedding is to have a clear vision of your design aesthetic or theme from the get-go and stick with it throughout. Not to say everything needs to look the same, but if there’s a central theme threading everything together, the entire look will be cohesive. Changing minds about the look will often create disjointed experiences and confuse yourself as well. Also, do as much as you can but not over commit. Spend your money on the most important things like the venue and catering. It’s totally okay to let some of the smaller things go. They won’t have as big of an impact to your wedding as the venue and catering will.

Modern Geometric Wedding with a Bright Color Palette

Modern Weddings

Today’s wedding is one of those that require a little bit of extra time just to soak in all the good details. The all-star team of vendors, including Rachel Havel Photography, Calluna Events, and Perfect Petal, went all out on this one, bringing Kelly and Adam’s awesome vision of a modern wedding with on-trend geometric details to life in a very bright and cheerful way.

California Sand Dunes Wedding

Wedding Design

Natural decor elements inspired by the sea are always right at home in beach weddings, but today’s team (including Ashley Williams Photography, Urban Shindigs, and Luxe Botanique) went in the opposite direction and placed them amidst the sand dunes of Southern California. Using sea glass and non-floral bouquet elements, this styled shoot blends the best of both beach-y and desert wedding inspiration for a look that’s keeping us deeply inspired.

From the event designer, Urban Shindigs: It all came to me in a “Blue” haze. Luxe Botanique was wanting to create something with simple natural elements like sand, grape wood, cotton, and air plants. Most minds would immediately go to the beach… but mine went to the blue skies over the majestic California Sand Dunes. I wanted to embrace the raw elements the dunes had to offer. I pulled some natural items from Witty Rentals. We used cowhide for the table linen, equipale leather chairs, and of course a collection of bone skulls.

For the fashion styling I wanted a slate blue look. It first started with the the slate blue Adrianna Papell gown from Bella Bridesmaids. The cap sleeves, beaded sharp lines, and glittering sequins combined to create the stunning look. To top off the brides look we pulled the natural metal/stone jewelery from Kim Egel Jewelry. The groom’s slate blue Allure Suit by Allure Men came from Friar Tux. Hair & Makeup was done by the amazing Erin Dunaway. To keep this shoot raw and natural we wanted a real honest couple. Ashley and Bryan were a perfect match! No flowers were used at all in the bouquet. Instead, Luxe Botanique used rustic textiles like cotton, dried mushroom, seed pods, blue thistle, foliage and an air plant to complete the look. Twinkle & Toast designed a blue water color handwritten invitation to go along, as well as custom sea glass escort cards. It paired perfectly with our stunning cake designed by Hey There, Cupcake. This shoot was all captured by the very talented Ashley Williams Photography & Audrey Alba Films.

Freixenet, pronounced (fresh-eh-net), is a cava produced in Barcelona, Spain. Cava is a sparkling wine much like champagne, except it’s made in Spain with indigenous Spanish grapes instead of the Champagne region of France. Freixenet’s most popular cava, Cordon Negro Brut, is housed in a matte black bottle, making it as stylish as it is tasty! The bottles come in a mini, 750ml and a magnum size, all of which make great accessories even for the wedding day. The minis are perfect for place cards or escort cards, and the magnum bottle is a great idea for a memento guest book you can open and enjoy on your anniversary and the 750 ml could also be used as table number holders!

Modern Industrial Wedding Editorial

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Heart and Sparrow

Today’s styled shoot has a look that’s sure to please both brides and grooms, fusing feminine and masculine design concepts into one cohesive event. Heart and Sparrow, J’Adore Décor Styling + Event Planning, and Willow & Whimsy put together a blend of modern and organic styles set in an industrial space for a wedding theme that’s sure to be timeless!

modern industrial wedding editorial - photo by Heart and Sparrow https://ruffledblog.com/modern-industrial-wedding-editorial

From the photographer, Natalie of Heart and Sparrow: The inspiration behind our photoshoot came from our backdrop – The HQ sits in one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Calgary, in a former factory turned creative space. We wanted to juxtapose the modern, industrial architecture with an overall romantic feel. At the same time, it was also really important to infuse the shoot with masculine elements while at the same time maintaining a softness and femininity.

It’s very easy for brides to envision a look for their wedding that is very feminine – this shoot definitely has a color palette (greenery, dark woods, blacks, pops of marsala) and design elements (scotch bar) that gravitate towards the masculine. I think this shoot is a great balance between both.

Galactic Wedding with a Navy Bridal Gown

Wedding Design

If Vincent Van Gogh’s The Starry Night met with modern day weddings, I have no doubt this styled shoot from Candice Benjamin Photography and Lace + Lilies would be the result. The show-stopper here is the incredible Rebecca Taylor navy gown specked with silver sequins, which provides the perfect backdrop for a lovely anemone, air plant, and eucalyptus bouquet.

From the photographer and stylist, Candice of Candice Benjamin Photography: The story of how the shoot came together is a simple one. I’m new to Northern Colorado and wanted to show a little un-traditional flair to my new state. I’ve always loved the idea of wearing a colored wedding dress, and wanted to show couples that just because it’s snowing doesn’t mean that you can’t hold a beautiful wedding.

Also, I’ve always been inspired by the galaxy, and feel like you can always find some sort of romance surrounding it. I dip-dyed napkins to remind me of the night sky, hung paper stars over the table, and we dressed the bride in a blue dress with what looks like shooting stars falling down the fabric. My favorite part of the shoot was done by Lace & Lilies. They took the idea of stars and translated that into using star-shaped air-plants in the bouquet.

Bohemian Wedding Inspiration with a Botanical Twist

Wedding Design

You can’t go wrong when you infuse bohemian style with botanical inspiration, two of our personal favorites. This styled shoot from Izzy Hudgins Photography, Ivory + Beau, and Colonial House of Flowers takes those two concepts and adds in a bit of science for some wedding inspiration that’s nothing short of magical! Stay tuned later today for a DIY project straight from this shoot.

From the event designers, Ivory + Beau: For this shoot we wanted to mix and match a tree loving hippie fairy bride who loves botany, plants and the forest with a hipster nerdy science loving groom. We felt that oranges would pop perfectly with all the plants and nature of the shoot. The Coastal Botanical Gardens was the perfect location for our theme and we set up their table in the greenhouse and the ceremony we set up in front of a bamboo garden.

For all the printables we wanted to mix the botany side with the science side so we put together the themes using chalkboard details with botany illustrations. We spent hours cutting out botany illustrations to put them between acrylic planks for a fun table setup.

Bohemian DIY Inspiration Shoot

Wedding Design

It’s a fact: when Izzy Hudgins Photography and French Knot Studios get together, magic happens. That’s what we have with this bohemian inspired shoot, which is not only pretty to look at, but also comes with the perk of DIY tutorials. Check back later today with two tutorials from the French Knot girls to help get the looks seen here!

Bohemian DIY Inspiration Shoot - photo by Izzy Hudgins Photography https://ruffledblog.com/bohemian-diy-inspiration-shoot

From the designers, French Knot Studios: Our inspiration has bold colors, sequin and beaded gown, and fun bohemian touches. We started with Cohen’s Retreat, the newest wedding and event venue in Savannah, Georgia. The historic property has beautiful hardwood floors, crystal chandeliers, and beautiful grounds. One wing is for events and the other is full of items for sale designed and made by local artisans. All of the table elements, including the fabulous bird are available at this eclectic venue. The centerpiece is made of yarn wrapped embroidery hoops wired together in three dimensions. Air plants are tucked in the threads and candlelight flickers into the night.

For the ceremony, French Knot Studios created this easy curtain of fabric circles in vivid jewel tones. Wedding gowns are beautiful, but not required for a chic nuptial. The bride and bridesmaid’s gowns are from a local boutique. The glittery sequins are perfect for the wedding, and could even be dressed down for a romantic honeymoon or anniversary dinner, or are ready for a museum gala. Large air plants are the perfect bouquet for the bridesmaids and can be kept alive in your home after the party. Flower crowns are always fun, but this succulent headband is striking, and like the air plants, able to survive long after the last dance of the night. Just pop off the succulents and place in some soil formulated for cacti and succulents.

Riverdale Manor Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Seeing a wedding from Lauren Fair Photography is always a treat, and we get even more excited when we see the talented Belovely Floral + Event Design on board! Crystal and Nick wanted a wedding that was a bit rustic, a bit elegant, and a bit whimsical. With the touches of glitter, chalkboard, and bright pops of coral, we’d say they certainly achieved their vision!

Riverdale Manor wedding - photo by Lauren Fair Photography https://ruffledblog.com/riverdale-manor-wedding

From the bride, Crystal: We wanted a warm, welcoming, fun atmosphere for our friends and family to enjoy. The style and feel that we envisioned was rustic refined with some fun whimsical details — rustic elegance down by the river. The theme for our day was “let love grow” – Nick and I added water and soil to a unity plant and had given our guest little glass vials of passion flower seeds as favors. We also played off of the day that we met, Thanksgiving day, by placing breakable wishbones on the guest chairs. We asked them to break them and make a wish after we said I do. We had a little quote that read: The day we met was our lucky day. Today might be yours. Please break and make a wish after the bride and groom say I do.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Take time to enjoy the day. every married couple that we spoke to leading up to the wedding told us that the day would fly by, but we didn’t realize how FAST it would fly. I made a point to sneak away at one point to walk around and look at all of the details – to try to take it all in and just enjoy it. We put so much heart into planning this one single day, that I wanted to really appreciate all of the love and hard work that went into planning it. Another thing that I would recommend is for the bride/maids to give yourself plenty of time in the morning to get ready. Plan for the hair and make up first thing in the morning, don’t put it off until mid morning. I hate to feel rushed with anything I do. The morning flew by for us and we were rushing off to the venue to finish getting ready and start prepping for first look photos. I felt a bit frazzled right before Nick and I met each other for the first look. However, the minute I saw him, all of the angst quickly disappeared. Which brings me to another bit of advice, first look photos are so amazing. It gave me such a sense of calm and peace to be able to see him and speak to him before the ceremony. some people want the raw emotion from the first look during ceremony, which you still get but it helped us get through our vows without being a big ball of tears and nerves the whole time. It also gave us the opportunity to take some amazing portraits before our ceremony and in turn gave us time after the ceremony to enjoy our cocktail hour and mingle with friends and family.

Kona Kai Resort Wedding

Rad + In Love

When you put together a wedding by the water and styling by lace and likes, you’re essentially guaranteed a winner. Dorene and Omri’s wedding was filled to the brim with amazing styling ideas, like the painted cinder blocks and the epic wood seating chart display, all captured by the wonderful Rad + In Love.

Kona Kai Resort wedding - photo by Rad and In Love https://ruffledblog.com/kona-kai-resort-wedding

From the bride, Dorene: Our style is eclectic and wanted to incorporate a mix of modern and traditional elements. We wanted to combine our two families and celebrate our own cultures, so we incorporated Israeli and Jewish traditions into the ceremony, and Chinese elements within the reception. Unbeknownst to the guests or even Omri, I changed outfits in the middle of the reception and came out in my mom’s Cheongsam, a traditional Chinese reception dress, which she wore in her wedding! Our number one priority was to celebrate our marriage and our newly merged families and we wanted to make sure everyone had a good time. Rachael helped to create a beautiful and unique ceremony-scape that embodied the both of us – there were soft flowing elements (the hand-dyed muslin hanging from the chuppah) and also more modern and rustic elements, such as the raw wooden podium and cement cinder blocks lining the aisle.

Our wedding was a mix of modern, rustic, romantic, and traditional. Our color palette included various shades of pinks and nudes, golds and silver/greys, and soft green colors. Leah did an amazing job incorporating the colors and truly embodied the look and feel we wanted in all the floral arrangements. There were quite a few DIY projects involved, and my sister Danielle was a huge help with all of them! She made all the wooden signs, table numbers, and wrote out all the seating tags. I constructed the wooden podium, the wooden card box, and painted all the cinderblocks with gold spray paint (which Rachael expertly styled for the aisle). My mom put together the party favors which were bags of coffee beans stamped with our monogram, as well as the bow tie and ring pillow for our ring bearer, Teddy. Rachael and her team constructed the reclaimed wood seating chart backdrop, and also dyed the muslin for the chuppah.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? I would recommend starting early and making sure you have a clear timeline. Things always take longer than they seem, so make sure you give yourself a buffer! We also realized early on that we did not need everything and anything under the sun – so it’s important to make sure your priorities and must-haves are clear and not to stray too far from the plan or budget! Also, it is important to ask for help when you need it – it really takes a village and we are so lucky that our families were really hands on and were able to tackle any challenges we gave them!

I didn’t want to be limited to “wedding colors” and really wanted it to feel like a celebration. I didn’t want it to feel traditional and I didn’t want to be restricted to any wedding stereotypes. More than anything I wanted it to reflect our personalities.

Wedding flowers: Ranunculus. They are my favorite. Also garden roses, china berries, succulents and air plants, marigolds. But the standout was the over-sized handmade paper flowers.

Early on I started calling it the Yay! Wedding and over time that really became the theme. There was a lot of bright color mainly orange, pink, yellow and blue. The DIY pieces got a little out of control. Finally the week before the wedding my planner told me I was no longer allowed to make anything else. It started with the dinosaur escort cards. I have a thing for dinosaurs and wanted to incorporate them somehow. I spent an entire day spray painting them with my mom. Then there were hand painted signs, program fans, coasters and menus. I also did the invitations which included a poster, felt patches and were all stitched shut.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? The best part wasn’t what it looked, tasted or sounded like. It was having all our friends and family there to celebrate with us. Hire vendors you trust and then trust them. I gave them all a lot of free reign to do what they thought was best. It created for an amazingly stress free day.

Pacific Northwest Rainforest Wedding

Modern Weddings

Few things pique my interest quite as much as the idea of a rainforest wedding. As a wedding planner, bride Kira knew she wanted her wedding day to Brendan to be unique, relaxed, and one heck of a party, and we got on board with that pretty quickly. Thank you to Shari + Mike Photographers and Filosophi Events for doing their wedding beautiful justice!

From the bride, Kira: When planning our wedding we sat down and thought about what was most important to us on our wedding day. We wanted to be with each other all day, we wanted to say our own vows, and we wanted to throw one heck of a party. We didn’t want a super flowery, girly wedding, but wanted something raw, different, and relaxed. Working in the wedding industry as a wedding planner, I’ve seen almost everything under the sun and so I knew right away what kind of vibe I wanted for our wedding. It was important that we got married in the winter (we’re lovers of snowboarding and met at a snowboarding event – he an athlete, me as event staff), so it just seemed fitting. With the date set we then choose our venue, the Cheakamus Centre in Paradise Valley, just outside of Squamish, BC. It is a unique green-built ‘tree house’ set in a mossy rainforest with snow-capped mountains found in the distance. Being there made us feel like we were in another world and it hardly required us to do anything to make it look phenomenal.

We decided to forgo some traditional elements to our wedding day and spent the morning with our wedding party in a rental house cooking breakfast, getting ready, and… writing our vows! On a day that goes by so fast, it was really nice to be able to spend all day with the man I was going to marry. One of my most favourite moments was when I was able to straighten his tie and have a few moments together as he got ready. We may or may not have exchanged a couple high fives at this point. Another element that we left in the dust was starting a wedding with the ceremony. Instead we started with cocktails and hugs! We wanted to get the party started right, so we mingled with our friends and family over some beverages and then headed outside for our ceremony. It was so amazing to be surrounded by friends and family right from the beginning of the wedding. We then got hitched in the freezing cold, rainy covered area under the Cheakamus Centre and I got to tell the man that I love that I wanted to get really, really, really old with him. We then celebrated further with a second cocktail time, a gourmet dinner buffet and capped the night off with dancing, ‘life-size’ Jenga and foosball!

The style and decor of our wedding was industrial chic and elements of cedar wood 4×4 beams, glass bottles and candles showcased down long tables could be seen. Charcoal grey, oxblood and gold were the colours that also played with the theme. Brendan and I agreed that we didn’t want to focus on florals for decor, but wanted to use items that were raw/industrial yet played with the background of being in a forest. We wanted simple. So what started off as simple turned out to be a whole lot of DIY. Brendan cut 4×4’s into various heights which were used on long tables as centerpieces. I then taped and spray painted over 200 votive candles which would then be placed at various levels among the 4×4’s. Between the blocks, clear glass bottles filled with cotton and greenery and helped break up the length of the tables.

FYI – The glass bottles with flowers were something I had talked about with the girls at Filosophi, but at the end of the day our budget wouldn’t allow for it. But to my surprise, they appeared on our tables as a very generous gift from some people ‘in the know’ and I may have shed some tears upon seeing the room and the generosity of some pretty amazing ladies. Brendan also cut a small cedar block which we used to hold each place card. The place cards were cut from plexi glass and rounded corners were sanded. I then hand wrote in calligraphy each guest’s name. While we spent a great deal of time making the perfect pieces for our wedding, it really was the girls at Filosophi, the wedding planning company I work with who set everything up, made the venue look incredible and made sure that our wedding was one of the best days of our lives. I may have shed a few unexpected tears when I walked into the room and saw how it had all come together. It was more amazing that I’d ever had imagined in my head!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Your wedding day goes by incredibly fast. Too fast! Get ready together if you’re not into doing the traditional thing, sneak away with your new husband after the ceremony for a few minutes and revel in the fact that you’re actually married(!) and hire a wedding planner so that you can focus on mingling, dancing and partying. Definitely mingle. dance. and party. Oh and just one more thing – stay true to yourselves throughout the planning process. Take in stride the advice you will get from family and friends and work as a couple to determine the must-haves. It’s your wedding day. Make new traditions, leave old ones behind, and make sure you have fun throughout the planning process.

Henry Miller Library Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Evynn LeValley

Has there ever been a more romantic coastal destination than California’s Big Sur? Judging by these images from Evynn LeValley Photography, I’d have to say there hasn’t. Shawna and Greg exchanged vows at the Henry Miller Library, and filled their day with heaps of personal details and sentimental memories. You’re going to love this one, so let’s jump right in:

henry miller library wedding - photo by Evynn LeValley https://ruffledblog.com/henry-miller-library-wedding

From the bride, Shawna: We chose to get married in Big Sur because it was one of the first places we went away together as a couple. We had already made some very fond memories there, so it was an easy choice for a wedding destination. The Henry Miller Library was the perfect venue for us because it embodies many of our passions including nature and music. Two of our best friends performed a sentimental, fun and non-religious ceremony in front of about 140 of our closest friends and family. The event was full of details that we knew our loved ones would recognize from our personal tastes including an awesome bluegrass band, animal shaped place cards, a curio-cabinet like altar and the movie ‘Endless Summer’ playing on a huge screen against the redwoods. We wanted the wedding to really represent both of our personalities and just be a party we would love to go to!

It can be a really stressful process but I can’t begin to explain how magical it is to have almost everyone you care about at the same place at the same time. Sure, we had a few loved ones not able to make it to Big Sur but they were there in spirit and we were able celebrate with them in other ways. Also, be sure to choose vendors that really understand your vision and have experience. The day ran so smoothly and I know it was hugely because of the exceptional vendors we decided to go with.

New Year’s Eve Cleveland Wedding

Modern Weddings

Photos by:

Suzuran Photography

Where do I even begin with this wedding? Rachel and Jeff wanted their wedding to be “vintage with a modern twist,” and brought in just the right amount of gold and Art Deco influence to carry out their dream. They found the absolute ideal location for their vision in Cleveland’s The Arcade, which is so beyond gorgeous and steeped in history that it has its own place on the National Register of Historic Places. With Suzuran Photography behind the camera and Lisa Daniel Floral Design in control of the stunning flowers, this is a wedding Daisy Buchanan would surely envy.

bride and bridesmaids - photo by Suzuran Photography https://ruffledblog.com/new-years-eve-cleveland-wedding

From the bride, Rachel: We envisioned a wedding that was vintage with a modern twist. The venue alone is spectacular so I made sure not to take away from that. The Arcade is a classic since 1890 and was one of the first large-scale indoor mercantile center in the United States. It was the first building in Cleveland and the 9th in the country to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Its elegant grandeur was the reason for choosing a New Year’s Eve wedding. So after picking a venue with such beautiful architectural details full of history and securing our New Year’s Eve date, I envisioned a party rich in glitz, glam and all things that sparkle. I went to school for merchandising and have a love for all things vintage so there was a ton of fun had when stylizing the details. I chose items/decorations I knew I could use as accessories in my house after the wedding. There were even a few unsuccessful times when Jeff tried to talk me out of taking pieces from our home to use as stylized items for the wedding.

As for a color scheme, I’ve also been pretty obsessed with anything gold for the past few years so I knew that was an absolute must. Other than that, I told my bridesmaids that I wanted them to wear all different dresses and to envision a glitzed out New Year’s Eve, over-the-top kind of party full of texture, sequins and glitter. I gave them a few inspirational photos to run with along with my pinterest board but of course had the final say. Oh, did I forget to mention that I planned everything from sunny South Florida? Since I couldn’t be home in Ohio to go dress shopping with my girls, I figured this would be easier to let them pick out a dress they’d actually wear again. Thank goodness for technology! When it came down to seeing them all together in their dresses the day of the wedding, I couldn’t have envisioned it better.

I bought all of my bridesmaids vintage hankies and stitched “no ugly crying” on them. My mother and grandmas got “I love you” ones. Mom helped with a lot. She found the large alarm clock neon and removed the old diner looking photo with an engagement photo of Jeff and I done by Sondra Kelly at NE Meadow Studio (not sure if you need any of these photos or not) and then proceeded to slathered it in gold paint. I gave her inspiration photos and ideas and she ran with it. She made the “Pop, Fizz, Clink” sign along with the “Happy New Year” sign. Then lastly the fun glittery gold arrows that pointed guests in the right direction. My mom enlisted my brother-in-law’s artsy brother to make the Arcade/Rachel and Jeff’s New Year’s Eve Wedding sign as well. He did it by hand after looking at our wedding invitation.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Stay true to who you are. One of the greatest compliments I received was about how the wedding was so “Jeff and Rachel”. Having said that, as you are planning the wedding of your dreams, flash forward 30 plus years and ask yourself the tough question, am I going to like that aspect or look back and think what was I thinking? Also, don’t be afraid to use everyday, household items to help stylize your big day. It should be an inviting environment that spews “Jeff and Rachel” or “Mary and Joseph” or whomever you may be!

Elegant Oahu Wedding

If you think there aren’t many places more stunning to marry in than Hawaii, then you’d be right – just ask the bride and groom from today’s wedding, shot by photographer Austin Gros. The beauty of the day was only heightened by bride Leah’s Ulla-Maija lace wedding gown and protea-filled floral design from Passion Roots.

From the bride, Leah: I wanted to get married on ‘Oahu where I grew up, outside under a big tree, but my husband wanted to get married where he was from in Lincoln, Nebraska in a Catholic church. We compromised and got married on ‘Oahu in a Catholic church and had the reception in a botanical garden. We had our reception at a botanical garden and set up long rows of tables and chairs under a big Monkeypod tree. Besides the lush botanicals, the venue features roaming peacocks, and even a natural waterfall at the end of the property where guests can swim in a postcard-perfect setting. All this fit with our idea of an old world, exotic, nature experience amongst our close family and friends.

With the wedding taking place in Hawai’i at a botanical garden, I pulled together the history of explorer Captain James Cook and our affinity for the natural sciences to create a scene that featured: nautical décor, a vintage globe, antique and aged wood accents, a cake decorated with black pearls, a garland made out of their oyster shells, and lush natural looking centerpieces. Together with the blush, nude, grey and gold color scheme, one’s imagination could’ve described the whole scene as a garden party, thrown by Captain Cook’s wife with things collected from the ship and garden. A real eclectic, whimsical mix that added to the botanical ambiance.

The surroundings and flower decorations were important to my husband and I, as I am a biologist and my husband an entomologist. Naturally, this part of the wedding planning was a big deal. When one works in the flower industry it is actually quite difficult to narrow down your favorites. All I could commit to was a King Protea in my bridal bouquet. The flower seemed to go with the large bloom featured in the lace in my dress. Plus, the protea held a special meaning – centered around a beetle pollination expedition to Cape Town, South Africa’s Kirstenboch Botanical Gardens with my bridesmaid, Cari.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? People will invite themselves. So, have a response prepared like, “We are still working on the guest list.” This lets them know not to be presumptuous in a polite way. Remember to say thank you to those who have helped you. On the day of your wedding, empty your mind of any expectations; of how things should look, etc. Just like clearing cache on a computer. The void of expectations will help you maintain joy throughout the day and not get bothered by the things that don’t work out the way you planned; all the while helping you to remember that this is a party you’ve planned and to focus on the fact that you will be spending your life together. Wait a week or two before you leave for your honeymoon, because you will be exhausted after your wedding is done. Waiting will help you enjoy it better and be more willing to explore the wherever you go, rather than staying in the hotel the whole time. Unless that’s all you want to do, in which case don’t go anywhere far or expensive – just spend it all on a super luxurious hotel room.

Green Building Brooklyn Wedding

Modern Weddings

Photos by:

Katie Osgood

Every time I look at this wedding, I just can’t get over how darling the bride is! Katie Osgood captured the wedding of Stephanie and Ben at Brooklyn’s Green Building, one of our all-time favorite venues. There are many wonderful details to behold, but prepare yourself for Steph’s jaw-dropping bouquet from Sprout Home.

From the bride, Stephanie: We knew we wanted our wedding to be warm, inviting, and echo our home decor. My husband had said, “We wanted a wedding that looked like a big beautiful dinner party that we would host at our house if we had the space.” Which is why the Green Building was perfect for us. As soon as we walked in, we knew that was where we wanted to marry one another. Its beautiful white washed brick walls, and ornate chandeliers create the perfect setting for our intimate wedding. It really means something to us that when we walked in we could picture the whole evening start to finish. And as an added element to our idea of our wedding wanting to feel like our home, the Green Building is 2 blocks away from our home!

We knew we wanted our wedding to be romantic, warm, cool, fun, and filled with personal touches. While we didn’t really have a theme, our decor really did reflect our home life and design sensibilities. Our house is filled with candles, geodes, old bottles filled with flowers, and richly colored geometric rugs. We wanted all those design elements present in the details of our wedding. My amazing Mom made the silver triangle garland on her sewing machine that would be used to decorate mine and my husbands chairs. We found beautiful geodes, bottles, and candles on eBay, educational supplies, and other fun sites! Our cool geometric wedding programs and menus were created by my Maid of Honor, Jennifer Katz, a super talented graphic designer and awesome gal pal. We also wanted to try to use the most local Brooklyn vendors as we could. Music is also very important to us, especially my husband. So he worked with our amazing DJ to make sure all the songs we wanted were played and none of the ones we didn’t want weren’t!

MyMoon Brooklyn wedding

We envisioned a warm and simple environment with a coziness for our guests. We knew this would be our chance to be around all of our loved ones at once and we wanted to create a special feeling environment. It also reflected our personal aesthetic as well. The rope was a nod to our love of water and sailing.

We used natural, wooden, and organic materials. Aside from the wood and rope we used touches of grey and coral. My fiance tied tons of monkey fists knots with rope and we used antique sugar molds, cheesecloth and airplants as the main decorations.My parents were a huge help collecting all the props. My maid of honor helped me make a garland of ribbon that hung in the entry. We used extra ribbon as accents on the aisle and the bride and grooms table. I asked friends and family set up decor for me and they literally read my mind and gave me my dream wedding. I am so lucky and very grateful!
MyMoon Brooklyn wedding
We decided that we would love to get married in the neighborhood we live in. Our loved ones are so spread out to it was important to have them all gather and get to know the place we call home, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. When we stumbled on MyMoon and it was perfect. Beautiful outdoor patio and old brick walls. The staff was perfect. They are experienced with weddings and took great care of us. Kenan is the wedding guy there and he is amazing.
