Today’s Real Love Story is a Cross-Continental Tearjerker

Garden Weddings

Prepare the tissues, ladies and gentlemen – this one is a tearjerker. It’s no secret that we’re suckers for beautiful weddings, but when there’s extraordinary purpose behind each detail, it takes it to a whole other level. There was great intention in the flower selection, the invitation materials, the cake recipe – everything down to the china pattern for each guest! Matthew and McKenzie put so much care into the experience for their guests, and in doing so created a day that reflected not only their story, but their loved ones’. Okay enough talking and more “oohing” over these photos from Betsy Blue!

From the photographer, Betsy Blue Photography: Since the beginning of time, humanity has told stories. Stories are what make us each unique….they are also what bridge us to other people and leave an intuitive legacy for generations to come. In order to truly experience someone’s story you have to live within in, breathe it, and enrapture it with every ounce of your soul. Matthew and McKenzie’s story began long before their Leach Botanical Garden wedding, but it was the solace, magic and beauty found in the gardens that brought their story to life.

From the bride: “I remember the first time we walked into the gardens…it felt like we were being transported to another realm..with each step there was magic that graced our feet and filled our lungs. We wanted this feeling for ourselves as we united as one and we wanted this feeling for our guests. My intention with the wedding was to lovingly curate a truly intimate gathering and a sacred space where friends and family could converge and feel how truly loved they were.”

Matthew is from England, born to a Scottish father and an English mother who loved gardens. It was the couple’s goal to implement small elements of his culture into their details. This began by handpicking each one of a kind piece of china that their family and friends would use for their dining experience as well as using family cutlery that had been passed down from generation to generation. So much thought and intimacy went into every detail…lovingly curated by the couple.

The color vision for the wedding was blush tones with accents of burgundy and gray for a light romantic feel with a touch of bohemian. For the florals, moody draping flowers, hints of protea, and elements of fall scattered throughout created the inevitable feeling of romance and mood. The bride, a true gypsy at heart, tied in elements emanating a sense of wandering throughout the decor…brass centerpieces, candle votives, & accented Moroccan lamps were tucked throughout the entire venue and tabletops.

The Scottish groom’s world-traveling life filled the aisles with friends from near and far… New Zealand, Ireland, France, Canada, UK, Scotland and beyond. Such a wonderful melody of accents and genuine laughter reverberated from every corner of the beautifully tended botanical gardens.

The talented bride hand-created every detail of the lovely invitation suite, which was printed on handmade cotton paper, wrapped in vellum and sealed with wax and hand-picked rosemary. The moody black ink botanicals combined with the light cotton paper and gold wax seal incorporated emotional elements that embodied the couples unique personalities.

The gluten-free naked cake, lovingly made by the bride’s mother, was adorned by Crowley House Flower Farm’s to reflect the jewel-toned, bohemian touches throughout all the florals. Trailing green vines, sprays of wheat, burgundy and blush glimpses…the florals spoke of true romantic abandon. The stunning wreath that hung so gracefully on the vintage white brick chimney, behind the couple during their ceremony, was draping with burgundy amaranthus and lush purple grapes portraying an other-worldly aesthetic.

Touches from the groom, like fine scotch and traditional Scottish wool kilts, made a rich, hearty backdrop to the delicate Moroccan-inspired lace Calla Blanche “Lydia” dress gracefully worn by the bride. His mother’s antique gold wedding ring was gifted to the groom before his mother passed away, and now adorns McKenzie’s ring finger with genuine honor. The bride and groom wrote the ceremony themselves in order to fully encapsulate each other’s own beliefs and to add even further intention and intimacy into a day that would be cherished forever.

Advice from the couple: “Pick three moments before the wedding that intrinsically must be remembered. Whether it be the moment you walk down the aisle and see his face, the first taste of cake shared, or seeing your beautiful ceremony come to fruition…if you pick those three moments ahead of time…you will remember to just breathe and take them in so that they will truly never be forgotten.”

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.

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?

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.

Plan My Wedding Please exists to make every wedding and event magical. My role as wedding planner and calligraphy artist, as cliche as it sounds, is to make your wildest dreams come true. From the little details in signage and invitations, to the big details in wedding gowns, caterers and florals, every detail is important. Every young girl dreams of her wedding day, and I am here to make those dreams become reality. I look forward to working with you!

Backyard Elopement Inspiration for Valentine’s Day

Wedding Design

It seems like Valentine’s Day offers an unending supply of romantic wedding inspiration, which is precisely what we found in this styled shoot from Four Corners Photography and Amanda Jewel Floral Design. With a floral patterned ceremony backdrop, incredibly lush floral arrangements, and a table runner accented with love notes, this is the ultimate in inspiring wedding design.

Backyard Elopement Inspiration for Valentine's Day - photo by Four Corners Photography https://ruffledblog.com/backyard-elopement-inspiration-for-valentines-day

From the photographer, Four Corners Photography: I have photographed quite a few backyard weddings as well as Valentine’s Day weddings and I really wanted to create something to inspire backyard brides everywhere that they can have something beautiful, romantic, and timeless. I also wanted to create something that inspires you to think outside the red that comes with Valentine’s Day. I still wanted to incorporate a few intentionally red pieces (ring, lips, a few florals) and heart motifs (shape of the dress, hearts on the cupcakes), but tried to keep those things minimal!

Old World Southern Charm Elopement Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Vitor Lindo

Maybe it’s the riveting feeling of escape from a quotidian world or maybe it’s the rich history that each cobblestone and brick exudes, but we’d be lost in a world without Savannah. In today’s styled shoot, Vitor Lindo captures the elegant tranquility of a city that boasts enough love stories to fill our history books. To give this elopement a European twist, Tristan Needham and Colonial House of Flowers combined buttercream blooms, rich hand lettering and a delicate china pattern that puts a twinkle in our eyes. The soft neutral palette of the tablescape is the perfect complement for the distinctive architecture in the background, and the lace detail trailing the bride’s gown is enchanting to say the least. Prepare to be mesmerized as you step into the wonderful world of Savannah.

Old World Southern Charm Elopement Inspiration - https://ruffledblog.com/old-world-southern-charm-elopement-inspiration

From the photographer, Vitor Lindo: Savannah’s southern charm can sometimes be well, a bit too southern. In this styled shoot we aimed to create something more upscale and European. Something one would find in any old city in the world. The Harper Fowlkes House was this perfect venue. It exuded the “old world” feel in and gave this styled shoot a ‘je ne sais quoi’ and allowed us to shot Savannah in a different light.

Pronovias Wedding Show at Barcelona Bridal Week 2016

Fashion & Beauty

Last week, Ruffled had the incomparable honor of attending the Pronovias runway show in Barcelona, where the unparalleled brand unveiled their 2017 collection. After spending the day prior to the show visiting both the atelier where the gowns are hand-stitched together by talented seamstresses and the flagship store on Rambla de Catalunya, seeing the gowns in motion on some of the industry’s premier models was just the cherry on top.

Pronovias holds the crème de la crème title when it comes to wedding dresses in Spain, so it was a given they’d close out Bridal Week on the last night. The show was attended by over 2,000 guests all dressed to the nines and tittering with excitement, with attendees ranging from famous fashion faces to international press and buyers. And the actual runway show itself? Pure amazingness, boasting a modern LED light installation mimicking starlight and featuring a touching tribute to Prince as all the lights turned purple and Irina Shayk walked out to a rendition of “Purple Rain.”

Peach and Gold Southern Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Riverland Studios

We’ve been hearing so many wonderful things about one of the newest venues in Charleston, The Gadsden House. And rightfully so! Recently, this venue was gussied up with the one-of-a-kind floral design by Branch Design Studio. Using Riverland Studios as the photographer for this shoot, Whitney wove her magic and came up with the most pristine creations of ranunculus, anemones, and kumquats nestled in milk glass. Topping off the tables was the most darling printed table runner from Lulie Wallace‘s textiles. Very southern belle chic!

From the photographers, Riverland Studios: Riverland Studios is a collective of talented photographers based in Charleston, South Carolina. We recently launched a sister studio, Studio Adele, and decided to put together a local styled shoot to mentor our newest talent and get inspired for the spring wedding season. When we were brainstorming ideas we were really drawn to the notion of using only local vendors and Lulie came to mind as the main inspiration! Lulie is a local designer and artist who exemplifies contemporary Southern style. All of us here at Riverland love her gorgeous paintings – we pulled inspiration from her “tablescapes” series – and were so excited to incorporate some of her fabrics into the day.

The color palette of soft, warm neutrals and feminine aesthetic of her designs felt like the perfect compliment to the soft light in The Gadsden House. Whitney at Branch Design Studio did such an amazing job with the florals. We decided on ranunculus, anemones, kumquats (which are all around the Lowcountry right now!) among other gorgeous blooms. She also created a pretty amazing flower crown which of course we had fun shooting. We included vintage pieces of milk glass to add to the tablescape of florals and golds accented by a fabric table runner sewn from a Lulie Wallace textile. One of our amazing photographers, Amanda, also happens to be quite talented with hand lettering after taking the Parris Chic Boutique Calligraphy Workshop. She hand painted the ombre peach and gold place cards which perfectly paired with the “Iris” fabric from Lulie.

Mountaintop Bridal Inspiration

135milimetros

The second we saw the Cristallini gown in this bridal shoot from 135milimetros, we stopped in our tracks. Soft blue-grey lace, a dusty mauve skirt, plus an illusion neckline? Utter perfection. Add in the most jaw-dropping scenery straight from Portugal, and you’ve got the ideal bridal inspiration shoot.

From the photographers, 135milimetros: Some weeks ago we got the desire to do this styled shoot. “We have to!” – that was our feeling. When we feel this onset of inspiration we never second guess it and we always go ahead, even when that transforms the whole logistics into the greatest adventure.
