This Rustic Chic Arizona Wedding is Love at First Sight

Rustic Weddings

We look at thousands of wedding photos every week, and this wedding is one of those stunners that make us do a double take to be sure it’s not a shoot. It’s just that good – so beautiful from beginning to end, so carefully designed with the sweetest couple that it’s hard to believe that all of it was executed by the bride herself. Amy & Jordan captured so many great moments from this wedding that it was tough to narrow them down, but this gallery will show you how rustic chic is done:

From photographers Amy & Jordan: Meghan and Zach’s day was a perfect reflection of two people becoming one. Every part of the day was so personal. They celebrated on the grounds of a family property. Zach hand-crafted the dance floor and the wooden archways over the tables at the reception. Meghan planned every detail herself (you’ll think Joana Gaines planned this rustic farmhouse wedding when you see the gorgeous greenery and touches of copper details!) Family and friends all worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make it a day to remember. But the moment that really had our hearts swell was when Meghan and Zach made the decision to wash each others’ feet during their ceremony. By washing each others’ feet, they were symbolizing the devotion and humility they want to bring into their marriage from the start.From the start of the day to the very end, there was an undeniable feeling of joy all around us.

Fall Desert Elopement Inspiration with Burgundy and Lavender

Wedding Design

Desert elopements hold a special place in our hearts, and we’re getting seriously inspired by this take on the intimate celebration by Betsy & John Photography, Le Champagne Projects, and Alexis Grace Florals. With an embroidered burgundy gown and eclectic desert blooms, we think this will be right up the alley of any bohemian-leaning couple who has a deep appreciation for organic details. Let’s jump in!

Costa Rica Beach Wedding with a Cute Bridesmaid First Look

Beach Weddings

Things are getting pretty cool outside, so now’s the perfect time to take a trip to sunny Costa Rica for this boho beach wedding from White Diamond Photography, Four Nineteen Weddings, and Stylos & Flores. German bride Sarah married her Costa Rican beau Javier in his home country, opting to say I Do with toes in the sand followed by a relaxed, intimate reception. We loved the sweet first look Sarah had with her besties before the celebration!

Costa Rica Beach Wedding with a Cute Bridesmaid First Look - https://ruffledblog.com/costa-rica-beach-wedding-with-a-cute-bridesmaid-first-look

From the bride, Sarah: I knew right from the beginning that I wanted a bohemian style wedding. As a German having emigrated to Costa Rica for the sake of love, I couldn’t imagine to get married in any other place than on the beach. After visiting many beaches and venues, we finally decided on Playa Grande in Guanacaste. A romantic boho-chic wedding was the 1st thing I envisioned for our big day. My husband and I are both travelers / adventurers at heart, so the topic was perfect for the scenery as well as for the type of persons we are. Also, a destination wedding was the best occasion and opportunity ever to have my best friends from Germany invited all at the same time and show them what the country I felt in love with is like.

My bridesmaids and I all wore our lace dresses in white/ivory/creme tones. Over all, the girls came in summer dresses in light, pastel colors and the guys in light colored shirts, mostly linen-shorts and flip-flops. It was very important to us that everybody felt relaxed and comfortable in their outfits. Our color scheme was all about light pastel tones (white, creme, blush, melon) and highlights / accents of rose gold. These colors were manifested especially in all our flowers, the decoration, the kimonos for our getting-ready-session, the stationery, the cake and jelly-shots, a “love” balloon, the signage and jewelry (like my earrings).

My very dear friend Alina and I had a few little DIY projects. She became one of my best friends here in CR and – serendipitously :) – has her own pastry business “Craft Bakery”, who provided everything for our sweet table including our maracuya-coco naked cake with flowers, cupcakes, jelly shots and alfajores. We prepared the cake topper of wire which said “dulce amor” (“sweet love“), the cones for the rice thrown after the ceremony, we signposted hand fans with our initials and wedding date (as a wedding favor for our guests) and Alina hand lettered all sings with instructions like the one which told the guests to take their place cards and replace it with a Polaroid picture shot with an Instax camera (our virtual guest book). It was fun to have had a friend by my side and, most importantly, she continuously calmed me down during the planning process insanity. Moreover, I designed the Save the Date (with a picture of my husband and me at a beautiful waterfall here in CR), I created the invitation with Paperless Post and the place cards and menu with some templates I bought on etsy. I recommend every couple to handle the invitations electronically, as it saves a lot of money and paper which, unfortunately, will sooner or later end in the garbage.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? 1) Generally speaking, PLEASE don’t feel pressured by what “society” or anyone expects you to do! Don’t invite people, if you don’t feel them close to your heart – just because your mum tells you, you have to invite your great-great-cousin you don’t even see on Christmas, just because it’s “formality” or “showing good manners.” It’s your, and only your, decision! If you want to have e.g. an intimate wedding, you are the ones who decide on the persons you want to have by your side on your special day. 2) If you are looking for advice, don’t ask 20 people because you will only get confused and overwhelmed by so many opinions. Ask your best friends and confidants who can provide you with an honest opinion, constructive criticism and, overall, have empathy for what you envision (not what THEY personally would like for their own wedding day). 3) If you don’t have an unlimited budget: First of all, keep in mind that everything that has the label “wedding” (wedding flowers, wedding cake, wedding shoes etc.) is at least twice the normal price! So, don’t pay frauds — research outside the typical wedding provider industry and consider some DIY projects. 4) Compare the vendors’ prices and see pictures of events they worked at to check their style. 5) If you feel that a vendor didn’t understand your vision, change them! You shouldn’t settle for anything less on your wedding day! 6) An ultimate advice to all brides: Please don’t get frustrated and disappointed with your future husband because you feel he doesn’t participate sufficiently in the creative planning and decision making process. For us girls, this one day (let’s be honest!) will always be a bit more important and special, as many of us have imagined it all our lives – or at least once in a while. ;) It’s like a dream about to come true. Also, I feel that we envision this day with SO many details that men simply are not able to imagine nor comprehend… From the color scheme, types of flowers and details in decoration to the flavor of the cake etc. So, if your sweetheart doesn’t really have an opinion, whether the cake should have a buttercream or curd filling, don’t feel offended! Rather feel calm, as your darling gives you a free hand in the decision making process of many details which are important to you. And, in the end, he surely won’t feel disappointed about the variety of roses you chose for your bouquet. ;)

Tuscan Warehouse Wedding Inspiration with a Floral Bridal Gown

Wedding Design

Few things make my heart pitter-patter like a floral wedding gown — they always manage to bring the romance factor to 100%. This styled shoot from Linda Nari Photography and La Buca delle Fate di Lieta Cima comes to us straight from the Tuscan region of Italy, fusing an industrial venue with seriously sweet details like a pink table runner, eucalyptus garlands, and mismatched lucite chairs for some modern goodness. Of course, we can’t forget the sweet + furry bow tied guest star!

Romantic Savannah Restaurant Wedding

Romantic Weddings

One thing we love so much about today’s wedding from Mackensey Alexander, Rhonda Martinez Weddings, and Moss and Magnolias is that the couple clearly made a point of prioritizing the elements of their wedding day that were most important to the two of them, and kept an easy-breezy attitude towards the rest. And when one of the things most important to the couple was having a Krispy Kreme cake instead of a traditional wedding cake, how could we not be smitten?

Industrial Texas Wedding with Romantic Minimalism

Modern Weddings

Texas is known for its weddings with heaps and heaps of southern charm, but Ashley and Johnny’s wedding broke out and traveled down the road of modern and clean. Rachel Meagan Photography was in charge of chronicling this fun couple’s big day and immediately, it evokes a contemporary feel with simple yet striking elements. The bloom creations by Wild Bunches Floral echo this with eye-catchingly bright white anemones, the ever-loved eucalyptus, and white peonies, to name a few.

Spirited Alabama Wedding with Holiday Ideas

Romantic Weddings

Just in time for all of the merry festivities, W&E Photographie sent over Sarah and Trey’s holiday-inspired Alabama fête that’s giving us all of the Christmas feels. They wanted to incorporate their beloved holiday and did so in a most elegant way, with a moody red and green palette (as seen in the bridesmaids’ dresses and the beautiful floral arrangements by Staci Bledsoe) and a wreath backdrop worth replicating. Just like the dessert table at their reception, this wedding is the sweetest.

Lake Como Destination Wedding with Hanging Amaranthus

Having finally visited Lake Como for myself earlier this year, I can tell you it makes for a super dreamy destination wedding location. There’s no shortage of beautiful water or looming mountains, meaning you’ll always be looking at some stunning scenery, no matter where you turn. Today’s wedding from Irene Fucci, Benevent, and Cip Garden further proves how lovely the Italian destination spot is, with some seriously cute wedding ideas for you to bookmark for your own upcoming celebration.

If feminine and romantic is your game, this incredible wedding in Spain has got your name.
Romance Weddings by Joseba Sandoval Photography and Boutique Weddings in Spain are the masterminds at work behind this elegant celebration, from putting together all the personal details to capturing it all on film. Casa la Siesta, the picturesque venue, not only provided the scenery, but also took control of the sweet floral arrangements for the ladies and the reception. Hats off to everyone, especially the happy newlyweds!

Romantic Hindu and Humanist Wedding Weekend

Garden Weddings

When we see the words “wedding weekend” pop up, we’re automatically enamored by what’s to come in the photos. Dominique Bader was in charge of documenting Sundari and Andy’s festivities and it was kicked off by the warm and vibrant Hindu, Sri-Lankan Tamil wedding. Following their first celebration, their Humanist wedding was dressed in lovely shades of white and grey with delightful additions of green thanks to the creations by Floribunda Rose. With a gala like this, Always Andri Wedding Design was on hand to offer not only smooth planning but fantastic design as well.

Autumn Wedding for Two Middle School Sweethearts

Rustic Weddings

The sweetest details and couple storyline are splashed all over this beautiful Alex Lasota Photography wedding. Not only does it have sweet and pink whimsical details designed and planned by Tin Sparrow Events with florals by Simplified Celebrations, Jordan and Dyllan’s school-age love story is one for the books and it definitely gets two thumbs up from us with ooh’s and aww’s thrown in as well. It’s clear from Alex’s fantastic shots how overjoyed these two lovebirds are to finally be marrying one another, and there’s no better place to say their I Do’s than with these stunning ranch views in the background. Heartfelt weddings are just the best!

Garden Party Wedding at Demetria Estate

Garden Weddings

Another onelove photography beauty and it takes place all in the majesty of the great outdoors at California’s Demetria Estate. Genevieve and Clark’s wedding is just so elegant and what I love the most about it is that despite hosting their big day outdoors, they pull in lovely, soft pops of color that simply work well with the vineyard surroundings. From the gray in Clark’s dapper suit to the sweet pink hue of Genevieve’s bridesmaids’ dresses and the dahlias in the centerpieces by Connor Casavan, it was all compiled so effortlessly by Emily Bowser. Enjoy this classic garden fête!

Bohemian Portland Forest Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

Today’s real wedding gives a whole new meaning to “the great outdoors.” Oregon couple Meng and Max celebrated their marriage beneath a woodsy canopy that was heavenly to behold. Hazelwood Photo embraced every natural backdrop (yes, that includes towering waterfalls and lakeside cliffs!) and Floral Sunshine was there to spruce up the bridal party with flower crowns for all. We especially love the way Gather Event Planning & Consultation and Something Borrowed tied in details like the gold speckled cake and the oversized chalkboard in lieu of paper programs.

Old City Philadelphia Wedding

Romantic Weddings

When you have a couple as fun as Onna and Chris, you know you’re in for a good time. Their day was nothing short of entertaining. From the top notch eatables to the lively reception bands (that’s right, there were TWO!) to the wedding parade that quite literally swept the streets, we know everyone had a great time. This sweet couple’s love for one another is evident from the start, and we’re so glad they personalized every bit of their celebration. Some of our favorite details include the flower-garnished fans that were swapped for bridesmaid bouquets and the wedding cake sporting soft watercolor brushstrokes. The ever-so-flawless Emily Wren Photography captured every second, so read on for the inside scoop!

Tangerine and Soft Blue Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

This is one color palette that really sticks out at you and with just the right maneuvering, you could certainly pull it off for all four seasons. One July Photography showed us the beauty of a vibrant tangerine and blue wedding shoot designed by Elm Street Social and we haven’t been able to shake off the elegant glam vibes this inspiration is radiating. Wallflower Designs not only sought out the prettiest sunset-colored orange garden roses and delicate pale blue hydrangeas, but also added in lovely dashes of seasonal fruits like apricots, cherries, and even an aubergine-hued plum for some color depth. We love this editorial’s versatility!

From the photographer, One July Photography: We know everyone has seen the 2016 Pantone Colors of the year – but have you seen it with a healthy dose of TANGERINE? From the vintage corvette, to the masterful floral textures, and hand drawn stationery elements – the romantic color palette was echoed throughout the day. Some fun details included: a great DIY seating card project (all you need is a copper pen, marble backsplash tiles, and some gorgeous handwriting!), a fabulous short haired bridal hairstyle, and a fruit and floral filled tablescape paired with painted church pews. Marla from Wallflower Designs is the queen of floral texture. She created the perfect blend of vibrant seasonal fruit with an eclectic array of florals. The brides bouquet was an organically composed masterpiece! Ashley from Paper Love Club created a beautiful suite of products: invitation suite, menu, hand-drawn map, just married sign, and more. Each element incorporated fine paper, watercolor, copper leaf, and custom calligraphy.

Fun tip: Our stylist, Jen from Elm Street Social, purchased a set of hexagon marble tiles typically used in a backsplash. These backsplash tiles were transformed into escort/seating cards when Ashley added gorgeous hand lettering with a copper pen. The romantic dress was created by up-and-coming designer Ellyn Goodman. The illusion back is a showstopper. Carly Pribich created a fresh-faced look with makeup application and hair styling from Jen Spair added the perfect balance of soft feminine romance and modern appeal. Check out that hair for short-haired brides! 

Heritage Prairie Farm is a farm-to-table venue nestled in the Chicago suburbs. This gorgeous location provided the perfect backdrop for a charming, romantic, and organic setting. Jen from Elm Street Social brought the vision together with her impeccable styling. She introduced perfectly paired tones, textures, and styling concepts that are fresh yet timeless. This real-life couple emoted so much JOY during this inspiration shoot. We are so blessed to capture this chapter in their love story!

Dinosaur Inspired Wedding at Fernbank Museum

Whimsical Weddings

What better venue for two self-proclaimed “big nerds” than a museum of natural history? Jade + Matthew Take Pictures captured the wedding day of Jackie and Jon, who filled their day with bright and colorful decor (need we point out the amazing floral design by Artistic Flowers?) to complement the museum’s own architecture. Don’t miss a single second of this one!

Dinosaur Inspired Wedding at Fernbank Museum - https://ruffledblog.com/dinosaur-inspired-wedding-at-fernbank-museum

From the bride, Jackie: Jon and I both have a lot of family, so we knew from the start we would be having a large wedding. With that in mind, we wanted a setting that would be large enough to suit all our guests and still have a lot of personality. We looked at a number of hotel ballrooms that all looked supremely bland, so the architecture of the museum was refreshing… Oh, and we are both big nerds (Jon just got his PhD in Computer Science and I am a major pop culture and science fiction fan) and we love dinosaurs, so that helped. =)

You will notice from the photos that we wanted a lot of bright, beautiful summer flowers — especially because I had originally hoped for an outdoor wedding, which ended up being impractical in Atlanta in July. The colors were actually picked to match the watercolor image on our invitations. Jon and I were living in New York while the wedding was being planned so Wayne, our wedding planner, designer and florist, chose all the color combinations and planned all the table layouts, including the glassware, tablecloths, chairs and a variety of other things I never would have thought of on my own.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Our strongest advice is to look at a lot of photos for ideas and go into any conversation prepared with your own opinions. Pinterest helped us find a lot of creative direction for small details. Definitely don’t be afraid to listen to others’ ideas for creative direction, but if you find something you love, stick to it!

Wedding Music:
Wedding Party Processional: Handel’s Royal Fireworks; Vivaldi’s Allegro in D from Concerto for Two Trumpets; Handel’s Hornpipe from Water Music
Bride’s Processional: “Te Diem,” Charpentier
We had no real recessional music because we recessed to the sound of everyone ringing dozens of unique antique bells my mom had painstakingly sought out one by one over the past year from antique markets and junk fairs and put under every seat as a surprise. Very fun play on Jon’s last name. :)
First Dance: “Sea of Love,” Cat Power
