Sweet Botanical Southern Wedding with Metallic Accents

Romantic Weddings

Modern and organic, this botanical wedding from MorningWild Photography, Something Perfect, and Nectar Floral Designs hits all the right notes. Morgan and Casey met at a concert, so they infused their most important day with a personalized playlist and great tunes from a local bluegrass band. We adore the metallic arch with flowers the couple exchanged vows under, and love even more that it was reused as a cake table backdrop during the reception for double the impact!

Damien Milan Photography

Typical of photographer Damien Milan’s work, is a magnetic intensity of closeness. There’s something about the way he captures a moment, something intoxicatingly real and raw. From the texture of landscape and dress, to the intimacy of pre-wedding preparatory steps, Damien’s approach is one of telling a story through detail – the quiet drama of technique and of tone.

Australia based, Damien and his partner Anastasia have an international scope and are available for booking in and around Europe to which they are already traveling every summer (June – September). If planning an international or destination wedding, consider the practicality and cost-saving of a trusted photographer already in situ.

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?

Colorful Modern Southern Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Lilly Pulitzer was always known for throwing a party with a punch, and the same holds true for Tyler and Connor! We can’t wait to spill the juice on this whimsical North Carolina wedding, whose vibrant display of limes, lemons and oranges balanced with bright pops of pink are giving us major wedding envy. A peony-lover’s dream, The English Garden provided lush blooms in varying shades of pink to remind us that heaven is a place on earth, and Emily March Photography tells a wonderful story through her breathtaking collection of photos from the day. Abundant in gold, glitter, pineapples and confetti, this fabulous fete was fun and fancy free, and we can’t imagine a happier celebration. Of course, none of this would have been possible without the brilliance of A Southern Soiree to curate each detail, so be sure to read on and add more color to your day!

From the bride, Tyler: I envisioned a vibrant wedding, everyone having fun, just like a big party. My theme was Lilly Pulitzer; I have worked for the company and love everything about it. For my flowers I had peonies — they are my favorite and of course they had to be pink. Some advice I would give would be do not get stressed.

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!

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.

This Calligrapher’s Wedding is Elegant Bliss

Elegant Weddings

What an absolute treat this wedding is! From the perspective of Allison Kuhn Photography, we get to see another talented wedding pro work on a wedding and it’s her very own. Bride Megan is a calligrapher so naturally, when it came to her own nuptials, she pulled out all of the stops and designed a stunner. Of course, all of the paper goods were amazing, and like the rest of the wedding, the florals by New Creations Flower Co. were beyond dreamy.

From the photographer, Allison Kuhn Photography: Megan and Chris were married this past May at the Separk Mansion in North Carolina. Megan is a calligrapher and created and designed a gorgeous wedding. Every guest had watercolored escort card in addition to a silk ribbon at their table with their name calligraphed upon it. One of the most stunning details were Megan’s black, purple and gold invitation suite which she designed. To compliment all of Megan’s amazing details, Melanie of New Creations Flower Co. created a beautiful floral design upon the tables utilizing black candles throughout purple and dusty pink florals. The green ring that Megan wore was Chris’s mom’s ring who passed away several years ago. The couple was all smiles the whole day, and it couldn’t be a more perfect wedding.

From the event designer, Michelle Wright EventsCherry blossoms, or Sakura, are notable throughout Japanese history in their literature, art and poetry. The soft pink bloom of a cherry blossom is both beautiful and brief, leaving admirers in wonderment every spring. Osho, a spiritual leader born in India, once said, “Life is nothing but an opportunity for love to blossom. If you are alive, the opportunity is there – even to the last breath. You may have missed your whole life: just the last breath, the last moment on the earth, if you can be love, you have not missed anything – because a single moment of love is equal to the whole eternity of love.” The perfect, yet fleeting bloom of the cherry blossom fully embodies Osho’s sentiments on love and serves as the perfect inspiration for our photo shoot.

From the photographer, Mikkel Paige Photography: A team of talented professionals in the Raleigh, NC got together to brainstorm what would be inspirational to brides and grooms in a great space downtown but also something a really crafty individual could do if they put time and energy into it. With so many DIY brides out there – we wanted elements to come together that you could craft ahead of time but to know when and where to hire pros. Hence, a mix of both featuring the Pantone Colors of the Year with pops of contrasting colors and metals to keep things interesting.

Urban Botanical Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Maybe part of it is the breezy green and blue color palette, but the coolness of this shoot from Photography by Angela Tucker can’t be denied. Start with an industrial venue, add in a romantic BHLDN wedding gown, lush floral arrangements from Springvine Design, and a bit of boho flair by Social 10 Events, and you just can’t lose!

From the photographer, Angela of Photography by Angela Tucker: Our inspiration for this shoot started with this gorgeous BHLDN dress. From there, our event designer from Social 10 Events, made this shoot beautifully boho, the perfect fit for our urban/industrial location. The table settings were true eye-candy with florals provided by Springvine Design. Deedie from Springvine Design and Mandi from Social 10 came together and created a beautiful ceremony backdrop for inside the event space. This backdrop on the exposed rustic brick paired with our couple made for an amazing look. Our cake fit perfectly with the style of our shoot with a gold water color effect. I shot it under a brick archway with the most beautiful light coming in. Everything about this styled shoot would offer an incredible amount of inspiration to any bride. We had so many talented vendors involved in this shoot. The best in the business. We could not be more pleased with the final product.

Blue and Peach Organic Wedding

Romantic Weddings

The combination of soft blue and delicate peach in today’s wedding is one to fall in love with. Caroline Lima Photography and Tre Bella worked to make Danielle and Adam’s big day as memorable as possible, and we have no doubt they achieved their goal. There’s much to love in this wedding, but we’re still reeling over the bride’s emotional first look with her father!

blue and peach organic wedding - photo by Caroline Lima Photography https://ruffledblog.com/blue-and-peach-organic-wedding

From the photographer, Caroline Lima Photography: When I asked Danielle and Adam to name three things that made them fall in love with each other, they had a bit of trouble responding at first. That’s because they both felt that creating a short list would be difficult. But finally they spoke of being drawn to one another also because they each share a deep devotion to their families. And as I watched their beautiful wedding unfold, as their two families became one, I could clearly see why! Danielle and Adam come from truly loving, kind-hearted stock.

French Impressionist Inspired Wedding

Wedding Design

We started off our day with a trip to Italy, and now we’re celebrating the beauty of France with this French Impressionist inspired wedding shoot. Emily March Photography and Rebecca Rose Creative created a styled shoot inspired by the 19th century style of artwork, which means lots of soft textures and pastel shades that come together like an artist’s dream.

French Impressionist inspired wedding - photo by Emily March Photography https://ruffledblog.com/french-impressionist-inspired-wedding

From the event stylist and floral designer, Rebecca Rose Creative: This shoot was inspired by the beauty of 19th century French Impressionist artwork. In designing these wedding ideas, we strove to give a modern take on French Impressionism, which is always characterized by soft textures that blend together, abundant garden blooms, and vivid use of a pastel color palette. The gown, by Elizabeth Dye, quickly became the perfect element of inspiration, with its classic, romantic silhouette and unique blue-gray tulle overlay. Artwork by Monet lines the envelopes on the invitation suite and the colors, textures, and details of a French garden party are recreated for a modern elegant dinner setting.

Farmhouse Inspired Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

“Farmhouse Fête” conjures up a world of beautiful ideas for me, and I have to say the team involved in this event for The Big Fake Wedding’s trip to Raleigh did a brilliant idea bringing everything together. Bright colors are mixed with rustic elements and tied together with lots of candlelight, and we couldn’t love the effect any more than we do already!

“Photography so fresh you’ll want to slap it.”

In love wedding photographers with our suitcases packed for adventures. We specialize in personality driven portraiture and emotional storytelling.

Our number one goal on a wedding day is to show truth. We want the vulnerable honest imperfect and gritty real-life stuff. Ugly crying from how stinking happy you are to be married. We like messy hair and un-fluffed wedding dresses with dirt on the bottom, undone ties and tipsy wedding guests. Bring it.

Enchanted Provencal Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

For its most recent event in Asheville, North Carolina, The Big Fake Wedding turned its attention to the talented wedding vendors in this mountain region. The theme for the day was Herbes de Provence, mixing elements of the casual European aesthetic with an enchanted forest feel for a look that’s both unique and inspiring.

Mountain Estate Wedding in North Carolina

Elegant Weddings

Hearing Nancy Ray Photography describe Taylor and Chris’ wedding day, we so wish we could have been there ourselves to take in the whole day. Flower Gallery outdid themselves with arrangements full of ivory and pink blooms and lush greenery (including a cool weather favorite, dusty miller). Prepare to fall in love!

mountain estate wedding in North Carolina - photo by Nancy Ray Photography https://ruffledblog.com/mountain-estate-wedding-in-north-carolina

From the photographer, Nancy Ray Photography: The moment I stepped onto the beautiful mountain estate where this wedding celebration was held, my breath was taken away. I wish I could take you by the hand right now and lead you through the secret passage ways that led from one garden to another, to show you the historic home nestled on the side of the mountain, to let you feel the cool summer air that can only be felt in the mountains, to let you listen to the rumblings of thunder that never brought the rain (thanks to the buried bourbon!), to lead you to the ceremony tent that perfectly fit inside a garden walled with trees, to walk you around the wrap around porch that held the laughter and conversations of so many guests that day. This wedding was one of the most uniquely beautiful weddings I’ve ever had the privilege of photographing.

To add to that, Taylor and Chris are the most down to earth, devoted couple you’ll ever meet. High school sweethearts have a familiarity that already gives you the feeling that their married in some ways, because they know each other so well and have been together so long. This familiarity in Taylor and Christian only made things more exciting on their wedding day, because they, as very best friends, had looked forward to it for so long. This day sealed the many days of their lives they had already spent together, as they vowed to continue to live their lives together loving one another forever. They have an old love with a new, fresh excitement.

North Carolina Tree Farm Wedding

Rustic Weddings

When the weather starts to get a little crisper, what could be better than a wedding at a Christmas tree farm? This beauty from Chelsea Morgan Photography, Sawyer Family Farmstead, and Enchanted Florist of Asheville truly celebrates the beauty of nature during the cooler seasons, and the love between now husband-and-wife Jesse and Hannah. Congratulations to the newlyweds!

From the bride, Hannah: When we were dating, we spent a lot of time together hiking and camping in the mountains. Being out in nature is part of who we are as a couple, but weren’t sure how we would incorporate the mountains and outdoors into our big day. We were so pleased when we found this venue with amazing atmosphere and views, because after that the rest simply fell into place. We wanted our day to have a classic but rustic feel.

Any advice for other couples planning their weddings now? Let the day be what it becomes, let it take on its own charm and its own beauty. I wish I hadn’t worried or cared so much about the small things. My favorite moments were those I hadn’t planned or overanalyzed in my head. The less micro-planning and overthinking the better; just be happy with your decisions, and move on. Remember, regardless of all the details, it going to be a wonderful special day!

From the photographer, Chelsea Morgan: Hannah and Jesse’s wedding was a beautiful display of rustic elegance. The Sawyer Family Farmstead was a unique approach to a mountain getaway, with the most stunning views and open reception area that allowed you to feel the cool mountain air. This Christmas tree farm was nestled perfectly in the North Carolina mountains, providing the most gorgeous backdrop for Hannah and Jesse to say their “I do’s.” Hannah and Jesse had an intimate wedding day amongst their closest family and friends. They added simple touches of green to their reception space to bring fresh natural elements indoors. Hannah has quite the green thumb and created many of the centerpieces herself. Their cake was decorated with olive leaves and Hannah’s bouquet was created with a combination of dried grasses and sea oats. It was the best smelling detail I have experienced at a wedding! With the perfect weather, we took our time after the ceremony to roam the beautiful property of their venue as the sun dipped below the mountains. Their day ended with the two of them dancing together with family and friends to tunes played by a small band. The mountain venue truly set the overall rustic outdoor atmosphere the couple wanted for during their special day. It was one of the most special weddings I have ever had the chance to photograph.

Antique Silver Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Breathless, organic, airy, elegant, romantic — all of these words perfectly describe this shoot from Wedding Nature Photography and Flora. The color palette remains simple, focusing on the natural greens and whites found in nature, and the vineyard setting couldn’t possibly be a more perfect fit. The inclusion of a two-piece wedding gown is an on-trend choice that ensures the shoot will be both modern and timeless!

From the photographer, Ilya of Wedding Nature Photography: Inspired by all natural, this styled shoot was a calling to all lovers of sophistication, organic elegance and nature. When we came to Western North Carolina, we fell in love with its natural beauty, picturesque landscape, tones and textures of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Standout Addison Farms Vineyard, with nearly 360° mountain view was another essential location with phenomenal and unique nature so well taken care of by the family of owners. Surrounded by the incredible Blue Ridge Mountains plus gorgeous bride and stunning florals resulted simple yet romantic inspiration shoot for those couples who rely on nature’s best offerings. To express naturally elegant feeling we chose white and green hues combined with soft and delicate yellow tones as a color palette for the bridal bouquet tied together with flowing silk ribbons.

Romantic North Carolina Beach Wedding

Sawyer Baird

Today’s wedding is light, airy, and romantic — everything the newlyweds wanted, and everything a beach wedding should be. Sawyer Baird captured the entire day on film photography, a day full of inspiring floral design from Tildy Designs and expert coordination by Bridal by the Sea. Keep an eye out at the end for special sunset wedding portraits in a gold reception gown, because we’re pretty sure it doesn’t get any better than something that beautiful!

From the bride, Jessica: Austin and I would have been happy to be married at the court house so we really wanted to focus on simplicity and romance. We had a gorgeous venue to get married at so luckily it didn’t really need a lot of decorating… plus we had an ocean view and it really doesn’t get much better than that! I had some close friends who I have known for a long time and where directly involved with making the day extra special — the ceremony painter, dress designer, ceremony vocalist — which was amazing! We aimed for Light, Airy and Romantic with personal touches and a Southern food theme.

I am a painter and a photographer by trade so the color palette was pretty hard for me — I knew the colors could easily get carried away because I don’t really have any one favorite. I would just have them all if I could! I tried to start with a pretty neutral color palette with blush and gold — I ended up with added hits of darker magenta added and splashes of green from the greenery. I hand painted some signs for the dessert table and for the menu. I also made gifts for the women (some coworkers of mine threw a breakfast earlier that day with about 25 ladies). They got simple tie string infinity knot bracelets with a little card that had an illustration of Austin and I on it. I also made the Thank You cards at the place settings. Also – my Mother made the ring bearer pillow from her own veil from when she got married.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? My best advice for a couple currently planning a wedding would be that something will inevitably go wrong — and when it does, the most important thing to remember is that this day belongs to you and your significant other so take time to soak it all in and enjoy it. I was so excited to marry Austin that I wanted to run right down the isle to him. Throughout the day when Id notice something that wasn’t quite right Id just look over at him and remember that this was the first day of our forever — it was only going to happen once and little things like napkin colors and too much wind wasn’t what was important… The most important thing was who I was leaving with and how much we love each other.

Bohemian Nouveau Wedding with Midnight Blue

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Anna Naphtali

To be perfectly honest, I don’t think I’ve been able to tear myself away from this styled shoot from Anna Naphtali, Kathryn Godwin of Studio Cultivate, and Vintage Charlotte since I first laid eyes on it. With a tassel backdrop in varying shades of blue, vintage rugs, and a cake reminiscent of intricate henna designs, could you possibly blame me?

bohemian nouveau wedding with midnight blue - photo by Anna Naphtali https://ruffledblog.com/bohemian-nouvea-wedding-with-midnight-blue

From Amy Herman of Vintage Charlotte: An obsession with antique rugs lead to this glamorous twist on bohemian decor. The rich dark blues and marsala create a sophisticated setting for the gold and white details of the table and the dress to elevated and glow. We allowed the details to evolve in a natural way, the invitations hint towards design elements from the antique rugs and the cake is iced with the intricate lace pattern from the dress.

Candy Colored Wedding Inspiration in Charlotte

Wedding Design

Few wedding themes conjure up the idea of a fun time better than “candy colored,” and that’s exactly what we got with The Big Fake Wedding’s second trip to Charlotte, North Carolina. Bright pinks and purples, watercolor accents, and a sweetheart table surrounded by a greenery pergola to add a secret garden effect are just a few of the details that make this event a favorite!

North Carolina Wedding Sourced from Antique Shops

Romantic Weddings

This right here is a wedding after our own hearts. Andrea and Joseph, the very talented duo behind Connection Photography, exchanged their own vows in the heart of North Carolina with their friend and fellow photographer Kelly Maughan Photography behind the camera. The couple collected endless amounts of beautiful antique decor to display throughout the wedding day, so let’s get started!

North Carolina wedding sourced from antique shops - photo by Kelly Maughan Photography https://ruffledblog.com/north-carolina-wedding-sourced-from-antique-shops

From the bride, Andrea: As wedding photographers ourselves we see so many weddings and everyone would constantly say “You must know exactly what you want for your wedding!” But it was completely opposite. We knew for sure all the things we did NOT want on our wedding day but everything else we just kind of decided along the way. I’m from Ohio and Joseph is from North Carolina so we wanted to incorporate that in our wedding somehow so we used our state shapes for decoration on invites and menus. We spent hours walking through dozens of antique stores picking out gold and cream colored vases, tins and accessories to use for centerpieces. Then when we had countless boxes filled we spent a few nights setting up each table the way we wanted it to look and taking pictures. Joseph’s aunt was also our florist so it helped that she could bring flowers over to see what we liked and didn’t like.

3 weeks before our wedding we were wondering through an antique store and found our gold backdrop for the ceremony! It was sooo big and heavy that I had to ride 2 hours home in the backseat because it would only fit in the car with the front passenger side seat down! Joseph built a lot of things too. He built our cake table, the arbor that went over it, our head table and the bar sign out of an old mattress spring, lights and a custom sign we made. Everything just seemed to fall into place. We had tons of family and friends from North Carolina and from out of town who came and helped set everything up and without them it wouldn’t have been possible! They were amazing!

I think our favorite part of the day was our first look when we could finally see each other and all the stresses of the wedding day just melted away. It was so nice too because we knocked out all the pictures we wanted before the ceremony and it calmed the nerves! We also loved having our friends shoot our wedding. It made it so easy to just be ourselves. Also, our reception was a blast! We had the Band of Oz and danced and laughed and just really enjoyed each other and our friends and family during the reception!

If ever there were a wedding that perfectly encapsulated “elegant rustic,” it would be this beauty from Connection Photography. Fusing glam details with good old fashioned southern charm, Mary Margaret and Michael’s wedding was nothing short of memorable for their truly once-in-a-lifetime event.

From the bride, Mary Margaret: Fearrington Village absolutely exudes southern hospitality and rustic elegance. In choosing a style and feeling for our once in a lifetime event, my husband and I, both natives of North Carolina, envisioned a southern wedding as unique and exceptional as Fearrington Village itself. Above all, a truly memorable and fun celebration with our closest friends and families was at the top of our wish list.

Overall, our wedding could be described as rustic, elegant, bold, romantic, and whimsical. In combination with the charming and naturally graceful backdrop that Fearrington Village provided, our primary inspiration for the color scheme began with the bridesmaids dresses, fashioned from a luscious and bold floral brocade in shades of pink, purple, and red, with gold stitching throughout. This romantic botanical motif in rich berry hues, along with touches of sparkling gold, were incorporated in every aspect of the wedding, and provided an unexpected and refreshing divergence from the more prevalent colors of Fall in North Carolina. The undeniably talented owner/designer of the bespoke paper boutique, Indigo and Company (and one of my bridesmaids!), further translated this theme into custom invitations, ceremony programs, and dinner menus.

Another more subtle motif carried throughout the day was that of a moon and stars. This was illustrated in our ceremony recessional, “Starlight” by Muse, our first dance song, “Fly Me to the Moon” by Frank Sinatra, our cake topper, and a giant glittering gold half crescent moon made out of wood that guests could actually sit on for photo opportunities during the reception. In fact, the idea for the giant moon originated from a much-loved vintage image of my grandparents as young adults posing on such a moon, as was common in the first half of the 20th century. Displayed alongside the photo booth, the timeless image of my grandparents gave a nostalgic nod to the past, while the new moon allowed for the formation of fresh memories with family and friends.

Any advice for couples planning their wedding now? Plan ahead! When the official wedding date is first set, it may feel like a lifetime away, and that there is an endless amount of time to plan. This period of time is the most ideal in which to go ahead a start considering caterers, musicians, photographers, and any other big ticket vendors, as many of these folks become entirely booked a year or more in advance. Make the effort to do the research while there are still plenty of fish in the sea to choose from, then go ahead and pull the trigger! Chances are, you will still be thrilled with these decisions on the day of the wedding if you are staying true to yourself and your vision. Another piece of advice – be as flexible as warranted for any given situation that does not go exactly as planned (because nothing ever goes exactly as planned!), and always have a backup strategy up your sleeve. Make a valiant effort to remain calm and level-headed about circumstances that cannot be controlled, such as the weather. Our wedding day was undoubtedly gloomy and uncharacteristically chilly for the time of year. Because of the dreadful weather, however, we had the ability to serve hot apple cider and enjoy a real wood fire in the stone fireplace during the ceremony without fear of broiling our guests. Furthermore, use was actually made of the tonal pashminas provided to each guest in order to “have and to hold, and shelter them from the cold.” Sometimes, the silver lining to an undesirable situation turns out to be even more fabulous than if the original plan had gone off without a hitch.
