English Countryside Wedding Inspired by Gardening

Romantic Weddings

Few things make my heart pitter-patter quite like the words “English countryside wedding,” and this one is definitely making my heart sing. Kelly and Ahmad’s big day was the perfect fusion of their styles, bringing in the bride’s love of all things feminine and the groom’s love of gardening. Thank you to Cecelina Photography and Amber Persia for helping to make such a beautiful day!

Lavender Big Island Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Today’s wedding just happens to be one of those that feels so relaxed, you just wish you had been there to share in such a special day. Kylie Martin Photography and Bliss in Bloom took the reins on Natalie and Dylane’s wedding day, capturing beautiful scenes in various shades of purple and lush arrangements filled to the brim with roses.

From the bride, Natalie: I really just wanted the wedding to feel elegant and whimsical, Hawaii is so beautiful it wasn’t hard to make that happen! Purple is my favorite color so it was pretty easy to pick the color scheme for the wedding. We went with lots of different shades of purples, some blues, and white accents. When I saw how all the colors came together I was beyond amazed at how well they complimented each other.

Monochromatic Bride Flower Guide

Flower Guide

We’re super excited to share today’s shoot with you, put together by the wonderful Amy Nicole Photography and Violet Floral Design. This duo dreamed up a few different bridesmaid looks in monochrome palettes — a pink, a purple, and a green — with makeup, hair, and flowers to complement each one. While these are great ideas for bridesmaids, we also love that they’d work perfectly for a bride who’s open to some fun color for her own wedding look!

monochromatic bride flower guide - photo by Amy Nicole Photography https://ruffledblog.com/monochromatic-bride-flower-guide

From the photographer, Amy Nicole Photography: Tricia Egan of Violet Floral Design and I envisioned a monochromatic shoot with three different color families to inspire some different bridesmaid looks + styles + approaches. We chose the color families Green shades, Purple shades and Peach/Pink shades and then selected a bridesmaid dress, hair and makeup looks, fresh florals, and hand painted canvas backgrounds (by us!) that all kept within each color family. Each model has a different style; Boho, Preppy and Vintage. See below for the details from each color.

Bouquet Recipe: Peonies, Garden Roses, Poppies, Ranunculus.
Our Preppy Peach bridesmaid wore a Posy by Kirribilla gown in the style “Willa.” Her hair was done in a classic chic french twist with a fresh peony garnish, she wore Stella and Dot jewels, and she had fizzy peach cheeks, bright eye color and a light coral lip.

Gold Glam Vineyard Wedding in Virginia

Elegant Weddings

A Muse Photography

A romantic vineyard wedding is always a show stopper and this gorgeous event from A Muse Photography and Amore Events by Cody will blow you away. With a dreamy backdrop and glamorous gold accents, sweet couple Liz and Zach’s wedding was a memorable affair.

gold glam vineyard wedding in Virginia - photo by A Muse Photography https://ruffledblog.com/gold-glam-vineyard-wedding-in-virginia

From the bride, Liz: Even though I’m a designer and like to think I’ve got a great sense of style and vision…I’m probably among the most indecisive people on earth… so to be honest- I didn’t really have a clear vision of the feel we were trying to create. There are SO many different ways you can go style wise and that’s where our wedding planner with amazing vision and taste came in. It was really helpful to have somebody understand what I was going for on a more broad level and to then help me pull all of my little details together in the end to create one cohesive beautiful look.

I would describe our wedding as rustic, glam, and classic. Blush and Gold ended up being our color scheme. DIY: Zach and I made some corn hole boards for our guests to play with at cocktail hour. I also designed our invitations, programs, favors, and guest book.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? My number 1 piece of advice is to hire a wedding planner and number 2 is to try to find room in your budget for a videographer. Our wedding video is one of my most cherished things from our wedding day. Obviously the pictures are an amazing keepsake but the whole day felt so surreal so to be able to go back and see and hear everything is priceless to us! And lastly, just try not to sweat the small stuff! Being engaged and wedding planning should be fun so just think big picture and try to keep calm and carry on!

Philadelphia Estate Wedding

Romantic Weddings

The More We See

If this Philadelphia wedding isn’t the height of intimate elegance, we don’t know what is. Emily and Edith hosted their beautiful nuptials at Cliveden, an estate overflowing with natural beauty and lush scenery. Thanks to The More We See for capturing all of the lovely details!

Philadelphia Estate wedding - photo by The More We See https://ruffledblog.com/philadelphia-estate-wedding

From the brides, Emily and Edith: We wanted the wedding to feel elegant and intimate. Having delicious food and great music were our top priorities. We also aimed to have a very locally sourced wedding and found wonderful Philadelphia area vendors to partner with. At the time of our wedding, same-sex marriage was not yet legal in Pennsylvania. We had a small legal ceremony on April 27 with our immediate family in New Jersey. What we called our “real wedding” was on May 17 with a larger but still intimate crowd where we exchanged vows and rings. It was important to us that we celebrated our love in front of our family and friends in the city where we met, fell in love and call home.

The wedding color scheme was green. We were married in May so the trees at Cliveden were a lovely new-leaf green and we wanted to play off that color. We both love nature so we wanted the wedding to feel as outdoorsy as possible. The ceremony was outside, the cocktail hour in the grass and we had a clear topped tent so guests could even be among the trees at the reception. For the favors, Emily made Christmas Crackers for each guest to pop after the toasts. They were stuffed with paper crowns, salt caramels that Emily made and riddles that Edith put together representing the Balentine Ale caps of the beer her dad liked to drink. Emily’s dad and grandmother made Spirytus – a family tradition of polish vodka cut with honey. This was used instead of a champagne toast. Edith’s sister made a gluten free the cake, which was used for the cake cutting. Emily’s sister made props for the photoboth and her dad made lawn games. Edith’s college friend sang during the ceremony.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Stay organized from the beginning! We had multiple spreadsheets to track guests, payments and projects which helped us keep sane throughout the process. Pick vendors that you like and enjoy working with. We had a great team around us which made the planning a lot of fun and the wedding amazing. If you can, have your wedding close to home. We could have done the wedding in a state where it was legal but it was a huge benefit during the planning process to live a few miles away from most of our vendors and location.
