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.

Stark white and clean lines tend to be the beginning of a minimalist design, but event designer White Kite Studio and floral designer Anli Wahl Floral Design wanted to add some fine touches to the mix.

Blush Pink Wedding at Carondelet House

Romantic Weddings

Priscila Valentina

Today’s real wedding takes place at one of our favorite LA venues – the Carondelet House! Ever so dynamic, this space features everything from an urban loft interior to stained glass windows to whitewashed brick. Akemi and Brian’s biggest priority when it came to designing their special day was creating an event that reflected, well, them, and we’re happy to say that their wedding was a warm celebration of love, love and nothing but love! XOXO Events made sure the entire day went off without a hitch, and they exchanged “I do’s” beneath a charming combination of chandeliers and exposed beams. We are in serious awe of The Little Branch, whose tangled bundles of ranunculus, anemone, peonies and roses decorated the brick walls in a sliding scale of pink! You can see it all here in these moment-filled images from Priscila Valentina – we dare you not to shed a couple tears.

We’re not kidding when we say this one is a gem – even the bride and groom look like living jewels! With flashes of copper amidst the ornamental tablescape and dessert station designed by eMBee event design, the ruby, emerald and sapphire palette becomes utterly symphonic. It’s hard to miss the creative blend of transitioning lines from the sharp color-blocked frames in the paper goods to the soft velvet overlay of the head table to the wavy strokes that create a marbling effect across the cake. Lindsey LaRue Photography even captures the flower-filled terrariums from Wildflower Fare. All in all, this shoot is sublime to the core – told you we weren’t kidding!

Modern Highlands Wedding Editorial

Wedding Design

This beautiful wedding editorial is just the thing we need for this September day, and how perfect is the styling for the upcoming change of the season? Kati Hewitt Photography and Love Birds Vintage Rentals & Styling collaborated on this Scotland-inspired shoot, bringing in all of the classic elements of the jaw-dropping elements of the Highlands terrain with a hint of modernity. Bride & Bloom drew in some of the most awe-inducing, berry-toned blooms and foliage for the arrangements; great complementary pieces for the earthy feel of this entire shoot.

whimsical wedding ideas - photo by Kati Hewitt https://ruffledblog.com/modern-highlands-wedding-editorial

From the photographer, Kati Hewitt Photography: There are few places in Europe as beautifully enchanting as the Highlands of Scotland, a fact not lost on the Mother-Daughter design team at the helm of Love Birds Vintage Rentals & Styling. “We lived in Scotland when Tiffani was a teenager,” explained Bridgette, “so we brought a lot of items home with us when we returned to the States. There is something about the history and character of those pieces that shaped not just this shoot, but our overall design aesthetic and how we approach wedding design in general. Scotland is all about history, and in a sense, weddings are as well. We want to help our clients create spaces that speak to their own story; their own history, and their families’ histories. That’s what weddings are, after all, taking his history and her history, combining them and then building upon that to create your own.”

bridal photos - photo by Kati Hewitt https://ruffledblog.com/modern-highlands-wedding-editorial

We took the idea of quintessential Scotland, with its intense green hills, beautiful ivy-lined rose gardens and stark gray architecture and then tempered it with a modern touch. There’s a lot of that going on in the region as well, always a push and pull between the traditional and the modern, and that idea extends to American wedding design as well. We really wanted to keep that traditional element, that sort of wink to the past, without creating a design that felt stuffy. Of course there are elements like the tartan throws that are decidedly traditional, but when you look at Kelli, her look is much more edgy. We wanted to show brides that it is possible to combine both in a way that works.

Working with Kati Hewitt of Kati Hewitt Photography, they were able to capture the essence of Scotland without the 8 hour plane ride. “Olde Dobbin Station was the perfect backdrop, and Kati captured it perfectly. It’s one of the oldest structures in the area dating back to the late 1890s. We knew we wanted to capitalize on that for this shoot. When we started adding in all the details, it just took us right back home.”

If you ever wanted to see what modern glam with an ode to yesteryear looks like, this astounding Philadelphia wedding from danfredo photos +  films takes first prize. Deep down, Kaitlin and Mark wanted to throw a huge party with their closest family and friends and the celebration was down-to-earth and relaxed, with heaps of earthy vibes and lush greenery centerpieces by Wild Stems that echoed that aesthetic. And don’t forget to check out the bride’s updo: it’s the bee’s knees.

From the bride, Kaitlin: Front & Palmer is such a beautiful and unique raw space that we wanted to highlight and play off its exposed brick, high ceilings with industrial beams, and gorgeous hardwood floors as much as possible.  We felt that this worked well with our vision of a minimal, romantic, earthy vibe with lots of soft candlelight and greenery.  As far as our vision of the day itself, it was important to us that it felt more like a huge party with all of our closest family and friends as opposed to a regimented event with specific things needing to happen at specific times.

Modern Romance Inspiration with Pops of Jewel Tones

Wedding Design

This wedding inspiration editorial has everything: a stunning backdrop that could double as fine art, an impromptu boudoir session, and a lovely modern grey tablescape with flashes of deep plum. It’s all so brilliant and we’re so thrilled Jillian Rose Photography snapped it all. Ede by Jacqueline was smitten by the location of the shoot and knew the exact direction to go to complement the outdoor space, highlighting the delightful architectural features. Autumn Vine Design thought to pair the various shades of blue with shades of purple, and it was such a swell move since the floral arrangements stick out so beautifully amidst all of the design elements.

From the event planner, Ede by Jacqueline: The venue itself was so incredibly charming and unique. I loved Ebell’s high ceilings and unique chandeliers that were offering that outdoor feel. I thought having stronger jewel toned colors would pop in this space. Also, with Ebell’s stunning bridal suite, I knew I had to incorporate a soft and romantic boudoir session.

Don’t hesitate to ask your photographer about getting some choice snapshots of you before the heyday of hair and makeup come around. Pick a great spot with nature lighting and wear your favorite lingerie and most importantly, relax and let the camera snap those natural smiles!

Industrial Meets Earthy Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

It’s so much fun to blend styles and design concepts for wedding editorials, and here we have another beauty to share from the lens of Gray Door Photography. It’s got equal parts modern and industrial mixed with the right amount of organic elements, and these ideas work so effortlessly together. We’re squealing over how Rustic Roots Design created the ideal arrangements for this styled shoot and put the emphasis on the foliage, allowing those dreamy, lavender and blush colored roses to peek through and add some romance. This indoors-meets-outdoors inspiration is so mesmerizing!

From the photographer, Gray Door Photography: Providence, Rhode Island is known for the historic preservation of its mill buildings. With a team of local entrepreneur vendors working to bring our vision to life, this white-washed mill felt like the perfect place to bring earthy and industrial together. Our inspiration grew from our team’s fondness of intimate, thoughtful weddings, playful yet romantic details, and a serious love of texture. This shoot is for the bohemian bride who values those same things – down to the very last detail.

The watercolor invitation suite was hand torn, painted, and lettered. The headpieces, sash, and garter were all handmade to complement our gorgeous silk chiffon, organic cotton gown, which was also made here in America. Each piece of furniture is vintage or antique restored to preserve its beauty and character. Even the donuts in our pretty little donut tower were hand crafted by a local donut shop! The floral elements (composed of a variety of thistles, blackberry branches, bay leaf branches, queen anne’s lace, ranunculus, smoke bush, olive branches, succulents, and a few other blooms) were perfectly overgrown, bringing the outdoors in. We believe your wedding should reflect you and your love. This wedding inspiration shoot is for those brides and grooms whose love is true, sweet, romantic, playful, a little bit wild, and a little bit free.

Colorful Modern Palm Springs Wedding

Modern Weddings

Photos by:

Gideon Photography

Setting eyes on this wedding, we immediately thought it was just so fun: fun to look at and we’re sure that it was fun to be at, too! Gideon Photography captured this brightly-colored and modern Palm Springs wedding to our delight and it was clear that no design stone was left unturned by Amorology when it came to Katie Leclerc (of TV’s “Switched at Birth”) and Brian Habecost’s West Coast wedding. Pops of color were all over the place, from the darling bridesmaids’ dresses and bouquets by Twigg Botanicals, to that ultra-creative dessert table. This wedding is a bright pastel lover’s dream!

From the event designers, Amorology: We teamed up with Backup Backdrops to create three fun displays for ceremony, escort and dessert. Our simple ceremony wall with Plexiglas arrows alluded to our couple’s love of cycling and the idea of sharing the road together. Inspired by their love for playing Cards Against Humanity, we couldn’t help but make a “Katie and Brian Against Humanity” escort display! We had Peanut Press help us design and create oversized playing cards that served as the table names and had fill in the blank statements. Smaller playing cards were placed at our escort wall and held the guests names on one side and a noun listed on the other side. Guests were invited to find their table by pairing their card with the best matched table name. How fun is that? It was such a great way to get guests moving, talking and laughing at their seats! For dessert, we collaborated with Hey There Cupcake and Backup Backdrops again to display an array of yummy treats underneath a bicycle backdrop as another nod to Katie and Brian’s love for biking together.

During cocktail hour, guests enjoyed Cactus Coolers, colorful popsicles from Si Paletas and delicious bites from Room Forty. The popsicles were a life saver during the hot summer weather in Palm Springs! For the head dining table, we created a custom table runner hand painted by Peanut Press and adorned with living fruit and florals by Twigg Botanicals. And the mid-century tables from Folklore Vintage Rentals were a perfect match for the tabletop prettiness from Hostess Haven. Bicycle shaped save-the-dates from Pitbulls and Posies tied our cycling theme together and were complimented by bright, geometric custom stationary by Peanut Press.

Colorful Bohemian German Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

An outdoor boho chic wedding doesn’t always have to be in an earthy setting as Sarah and Martin’s vibrant Germany wedding proves. Expertly photographed by Ashley Ludaescher Photography, hosting a bohemian-style fête on the grounds of an impressive estate like this one in the equally-impressive German countryside is just as perfect! Choosing a palette with moody reds as the foundation, Love Circus transformed Sarah and Martin’s wedding venue into a hip location with the right amount of elegance from Ulrike Buchheim‘s floral designs. All of the different elements and trends harmonizing so well together has us gleaming with delight!

Germany wedding photographers - photo by Ashley Ludaescher https://ruffledblog.com/colorful-bohemian-german-wedding

From the photographer, Ashley Ludaescher Photography: This wedding beautifully styled by Love Circus, was so much fun to photograph. With a bohemian garden theme, guests enjoyed the beautiful summer weather in Northern Germany on the stunning grounds of Schloss Herzfelde. Guests escaped the city and spent the weekend celebrating Sarah & Martin tying the knot after a decade together. From the flower crown station for the guests to create their own flower crowns, to the bride’s gorgeous Mira Zwillinger dress, the weekend was filled with beautiful touches and details. Sarah works in fashion and her dress purchased from Brown’s Bride in London fit her perfectly and matched the relaxed sophisticated vibe of the wedding weekend.

Mixing and matching wedding style ideas can be nerve-wracking, especially if the two or more ideas are complete polar opposites of one another. Opt for having luscious florals if you’re seeking out an elegant wedding and toss your more modern ideas in during cocktail hour, as seen here in Sarah and Martin’s fun and bohemian wedding lounge area. A huge tip for pulling the ideas off: be sure to keep the color choices consistent throughout your big day!

Mid-Century Mod Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Bright colors, a fun and festive setting, and a beautiful couple are what makes this wedding inspiration so great to look at. This San Francisco wedding event was inspired by the coolness of the mod 1960s and we can’t blame them! It was a lively time and everything was as vibrant and energetic as it could be. Don’t miss the eye-popping shades of aqua and orange, paired with some incredible details from florals to that retro wedding cake that looks almost too good to eat.

Modern Geo Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

There’s nothing that’s more impressive than when vendors brainstorm to design a shoot that has us enthralled with the creativity and talent they have. Shelley K Photography and Haley Hueckman did just that and what came from their collaboration is quite amazing. One of the things that we’ve learned is that if there’s anywhere that a black wedding dress can work so well, this shoot has proved to us it’s in the desert, paired with the most eye-catching flowers by Bramble & Brass and those sultry jewel tones.

modern wedding dresses - photo by Shelley K Photography https://ruffledblog.com/modern-geo-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Shelley K Photography: This modern geometric wedding editorial took place in the high desert region of eastern Oregon. The shoot was styled with a love of geometry and equilateral shapes as well as deep jewel tones. The jewel tones paired beautiful with the neutral backdrop of the landscape and created great contrast. We also wanted to step outside the box with a black wedding dress. All florals were foraged locally in eastern Oregon.

Like brides, grooms are most certainly entitled to jazz up their wedding day threads. Classic tuxedo jacket styles in black or cream are always a winner, but picking out a navy blue, ruby red, or even emerald green tuxedo jacket will be sure to wow everyone. Mixing and matching different prints are another fun way to show your sartorial skills, like this groom who dressed up his casual linen blue jacket with a diamond-print bowtie. Quite snazzy to say the least!

Cutting open sweet-smelling citrus fruits like these and displaying them in and around your wedding tables are a fun way to dress up your tablescapes if they’re in need of more styling. They add brilliant pops of color and an even bigger plus is that they smell divine!

Tuscan Inspired Terrain Wedding

Garden Weddings

A wedding inspired by Mediterranean colors at Terrain is always a good thing and in the case of Phoebe and Tim’s wedding, it’s a great thing. Ali & Paul Co. were the maestros behind the camera for their big day, catching shots of the organic-colored, Sicily-inspired wedding day. The deep and rich hues from this wedding are a match made in heaven with the venue, to say the least, and Katie Rebecca Events worked wonders to fuse everything together so effortlessly! Weddings like these are certainly a few of our favorite things.

Terrain wedding

From the bride, Phoebe: I always wanted something that was lush with greenery and botanicals. Tim’s grandfather came from Sicily, so we wanted to capture some of that feel, with the ash-green leaves and oranges. I love the juxtaposition of masculine hues with touches of light, feminine colors, so the palette of dark emerald, navy, apricot, and cream worked perfectly. I showed Katie, our wedding planner, some ideas of things I liked, but then she took those ideas and ran with them — and produced something amazing! We gave her style guidelines, but in the end, we trusted her eye and her expertise and gave free reign to her to create and pull together all the details.

Tim and I both have a sibling that was not part of the direct wedding party. However, my brother and Tim’s sister are very important to us, so we wanted to include them in a very special way. They not only read passages during the ceremony, but they also gave speeches, in addition to our maid of honor/best man, in lieu of traditional parent/family speeches. My brother’s speech was unexpectedly laugh-out-loud hilarious and the big hit of the night! Also crazy is the story of my wedding cake: Several years ago, I was a food editor for Cooking Light magazine. I’m very picky about my desserts, so my dear, dear ex-coworker Deb (who is an amazing pastry chef) handmade the personal coconut cake and shipped it to us overnight from Birmingham, AL!

The hanging florals Terrain created for the reception were amazing! I also loved my bouquet — it was so heavy because of just how full Terrain’s floral design team packed it! It’s hard to narrow it down, but I have to also mention the tables/place settings. The napkins + goblets + gold flatware + candles + foliage and oranges was everything that I was hoping for. Katie of Katie Rebecca Events and her team totally delivered.

I think the best moments were when you KNEW you made the right choice because they just GET you. This was especially true when talking to our ceremony vendors. Our officiant, Donna, really wanted to tell our story and write a custom ceremony that was very personal, which was exactly what I had always hoped for. I wanted the ceremony music to be very us, which wasn’t the traditional songs or hymns but also nothing dance-down-the-aisle crazy either! Our musicians, Shawn and Sharon, made the perfect suggestions right away. I fell in love with their rendition of Bob Dylan/Adele’s “To Make You Feel My Love” as soon as I heard it — gave me goosebumps!

Tim and I did a first look. In the nearly 9 years we’ve been together, I’ve barely seen Tim get emotional. He did when he turned around and saw me. It’s funny — I cry a lot at my friends’ weddings, but I didn’t even shed a tear at mine… just lots of laughter! Tim and I are not dancers, so we took classes, like many couples. We only were able to make it to two classes, though, so we were very worried we were going to mess up the steps, even though it wasn’t a true choreographed dance (it was just the rumba). So after photos, while our guests were still at cocktail hour, we snuck into the reception area and practiced like crazy, haha. Lastly, I didn’t expect our father/daughter or mother/son dances to be so emotional. I kept cracking jokes so my dad wouldn’t be too sad. He’s pretty stoic in person.

From the photographers, Ali & Paul Co.Tim & Phoebe wanted a Tuscan inspired wedding surrounded by their closest friends and family. They shared 8 years together and finally planned the wedding of their dreams, thanks to the help of wedding planner, Katie Rebecca. They tied together her favorite color palette of navy, emerald and apricot and created a dreamy reception space filled with citrus and olive leaves. From hand painted wedding invitations, floral creations by Terrain, and mini bottles of Limoncello with custom watercolor and calligraphy tags in place of a seating chart, the details pulled everything together perfectly!

Jackson Pollock Inspired Wedding Editorial

Wedding Design

There’s nothing that says “modern” quite like a Jackson Pollock painting. The artist’s drip-style of painting is quite well-known and with the surge of modern wedding trends, we knew this Pollock-style splatter look would make its way in! Mikkel Paige Photography captured the lovely images from this Pollock-inspired wedding shoot and they are brilliant. With a team of vendors like Color Pop Events and Blade Floral and Event Designs, it’s no wonder this wedding editorial turned into a funky and fun minimalist playground!

From the photographer, Mikkel Paige Photography: Dobbin St is the hottest new venue in New York City, located in a very trendy area of Brooklyn on in Williamsburg. Wanting to be amongst the first vendors and “wedding” in the space that opened just two months ago, this very talented team of popular NYC vendors came together to create this Jackson Pollock inspired, vibrant inspirational shoot.

The color palette was chosen to play off the already amazing curated art and colors in the venue: black and white with pops of yellow, mauve, green and blue (“Yves Klein blue” particularly on the front exterior statement wall, a color first mixed by this famous artist around 1960.) Everything in the shoot played off those colors, with an addition of Pollock-like splatter paint throughout particularly on the dinner plates, cake and guest book paper. Two other well known artists are highlighted at the venue including Christine Gedeon who created the mural on the back wall out of tape, inspired by an aerial view and side view of the Manhattan/Brooklyn landscape as seen from the venue’s rooftop, and custom wallpaper by Brooklyn native Sarah Merenda. A blue sequin tablecloth, pink boutonnieres and bouquets, an incredible stationery suite custom designed for the shoot by Bliss and Bone, and a stunning Hayley Paige gown all contribute to this absolutely outstanding wedding shoot.

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!

Brightly Colorful Sequined Wedding

Modern Weddings

Maybe it’s a girly girl’s thing, but we can never have enough glam, gold, or sequins and we’re so thrilled this A.J. Dunlap Photography wedding came our way. Kast Events and crew worked their magic all over the modern venue and transformed it into a shining spectacle. Eclectic Sage certainly stopped the show with those elaborate and gorgeous floral arrangements. In every bright color you could think of or imagine, the blooms worked so well against all of the sequined decor. Shout out to the bride’s floral crown, especially; it’s so divine!

From the photographer, A.J. Dunlap PhotographyThe pops of color, sparkly sequin and the happy couple that fill this wedding will make you smile from ear to ear. The bride wanted a glamorous and colorful wedding day, and she got just that! The ceremony was set on a theater style stage with a gold and silver paper chain background that was breathtaking. Match that with the mismatched floral bridesmaid gowns & flower crowns, and you had one gorgeous wedding.

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.

Modern and Linear Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

We see what stylists Taylor and Katherine from Aisle Planner mean when they laid eyes on the venue for this place: it’s the perfect spot for creativity to run rampant and theirs sure did with this trendy, contemporary wedding shoot by Cavin Elizabeth Photography. It’s full of razor-sharp lines, clean and bright colors, and just the slightest dash of romance from the florals by The Flower Shop; because we all need a dash of romance, right?

Modern and Linear Wedding Inspiration - photo by Cavin Elizabeth Photography https://ruffledblog.com/modern-and-linear-geometric-wedding-inspiration

From the stylists, Taylor Hollman and Katherine Oyer from Aisle Planner: Sharp geometrics, defined lines and a stark black-and-white palette come together to create modern wedding inspo like you’ve never seen in this perfectly styled shoot. The Romantik Studio made for a killer setting—their clean-slate studio provided stylists Tayler Hollman and Katherine Oyer of Aisle Planner the perfect blank canvas to play with, and Cavin of Cavin Elizabeth Photography captured their vision beautifully. Hollman and Oyer dressed the bride-for-the-day in an ethereal pleated piece from The Dress Theory that softened up the sharpness of the shoot perfectly, and really set the scene for what we can only describe as oh-so-chic modern romance.

Lucky To Be In Love created a marbled invitation suite as mesmerizing as they come, and Amy Samuel of The Flower Shop crafted wild, sprawling floral arrangements that managed to feel both sharp and soft. Greenery as bright as it was lush played perfectly against soft white roses—and both were complemented by pops of pink and dusty lavender ranunculi.

The gold chairs provided by Folklore Rentals where the show-stopping and added modern and masculine lines to the scene. Gold flatware and airy gold-wire chairs added a touch of metallic that really brought the shoot to life, and—our favorite part—Jenny Wenny Cakes handcrafted a two-tiered cake that encompassed the aesthetic of the entire scene in one (super tasty) treat. The stylish spread was complete with unbelievable poke plate provided by Waters Catering and Fine Foods—and blackberry mojitos we’re still washing it all down.

Bright Summery Arizona Wedding

Romantic Weddings

We are so all over this summery Arizona affair today from Amy & Jordan. We’re talking about refreshing flashes of pinks and aqua set against white and cream backgrounds to really make those colors stand out. Don’t even get us started on the modern backdrop; it’s utterly divine. ROAR Events designed and planned Alyssa and Spencer’s southwest wedding with such finesse and Sarah’s Garden Style followed it up with darling florals in the same fun and flirty shades, with a bit of orange to pack an added punch. Enjoy today’s fête; we certainly did!

geometric wedding ideas - photo by Amy & Jordan Photography https://ruffledblog.com/bright-summery-arizona-wedding

From the photographers, Amy & Jordan: Such a bright and summery wedding. A bold color palette of light pinks, fuchsia, aqua, and accents of gold. There were luscious succulents interspersed with pops of cream florals. They were married by a white brick fireplace with a mirrored mantel and sat in front of a geometric floral designed wall at their sweetheart table. It was a stunning day, from beginning to end.

Having a sweet note at each guest’s place setting is a touching gesture that all your loved ones will appreciate. Though it won’t take the place of a more elaborate thank you note you’ll send to them later on, it’s another way to show them your appreciation for attending and showing their support at one of the happiest moments of your life! Tip: print your thank you on the back of your wedding menu cards if you’re doing individual menus.

Modern Festive Austin Wedding

Modern Weddings

What more could you ask for from this beautiful wedding? Sloan and Jose had a ultra-trendy venue, The Nichols as photographers, and an afterparty/second reception to celebrate their New Years’ Eve fête all-in-one. Stems brought in vibrant colors to amp up the otherwise cool-weathered Austin wedding day, and with the festiveness of the day, Olive and Belle reined in all of the hip details. We would have loved an invite to this glorious event!

From the bride, Sloan: Right from the get-go we knew we wanted something different than a typical “all in one shot” wedding. We also knew that we wanted our wedding day to evoke two different feelings: Ceremony, intimate. Reception, non-stop party.  Having lived together for three years before getting married, we really wanted to get into the heart of a wedding and marital union from a non-traditional, non-religious standpoint. We felt we could achieve this with a very intimate ceremony that felt both personal and communal. It was important to us that our family and guests knew how appreciated their roles in our lives to the point of our marriage meant and how much we look forward to having them in our futures.

Initially, we wanted a private ceremony one night followed by a reception the following night, but had a hard time wrapping our heads around how to not make guests feel excluded from the ceremony. When our ceremony venue, Union on Eighth had New Year’s Eve as one of their only remaining available dates in 2015, the idea of a split event on the same day was born. 

We decided to host a morning ceremony followed by brunch at The Union on Eighth and a reception later in the evening at Easy Tiger. This turned out to be the best decision we made for our wedding day. It allowed us to have time with our guests twice that day which made the day feel all the more special. It was also really fun for our guests. We got to hear stories about their adventures between the ceremony and reception, how they hung out with other guests between each event, and how it made their New Year’s Eve so unique.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Take your time and go with your gut. Jose and I had a long engagement, 2.5 years. Throughout that time we came up with a million ideas, viewed over 20 venues in multiple cities, etc. I’m so glad that we took our time, did our research, and didn’t jump into anything that didn’t feel right. Hire a coordinator, or if you can fit it into your budget, a planner. We ran into Sydney of Olive and Belle at a mutual friend’s wedding the April prior to our wedding. After a few months of thinking I could handle everything on my own I sent a desperate, ragged message to Sydney inquiring if she would be interested in working with us. Thank goodness she said yes! Our day wouldn’t have been as seamless or anywhere near wonderful if it weren’t for her.

Stand your ground, but also learn to pick your battles. One question I would repeat in my head during times of conflict or battling preferences was “If this happens/doesn’t happen at your wedding will you be devastated?” While that sounds a bit extreme, it allowed me to figure out what I absolutely had to have, what I could compromise on, and what I absolutely did not want. 

If possible, write your own ceremony. My godfather was a gem and officiated our wedding. He, his husband, Jose, and I collectively had a hand in the writing and planning of our ceremony. We chose to honor our family and friends with community vows and a ring warming passing. We also infused a loose take on a hand tying ceremony. It meant so much to us to be married on our terms, in a ceremony that was uniquely ours, and even more, that it was delivered by someone who means so much to us.
