Lovingly Handcrafted Backyard Wedding with Boho Details

Bohemian Weddings

Photos by:

April and Paul

Today’s wedding is everything a backyard wedding should be — intimate, a bit eclectic, and with lots of personal touches. April and Paul and Greenbrook Flowers helped to create and capture the entire day, which included rustic reception tables with chevron accents, glass bottles of various hues, and a groom’s cake that plays special tribute to the couple’s love of vinyl records. Let’s jump in!

Intimate Private Island Elopement Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

BOTTEGA53

On the flip side of lavish parties with hundreds of guests, there’s the intimate elopement, and this beautiful elopement inspiration from BOTTEGA53 and Centorose Un Tulipano is just about as intimate as it gets. The couple shares some time together before dressing for the day, then share sweet moments and get whisked away by a boat tour around the lake. This is a true dream, ladies and gents!

Intimate Private Island Elopement Inspiration - photo by BOTTEGA53 https://ruffledblog.com/intimate-private-island-elopement-inspiration

From the photographers, BOTTEGA53: This intimate story was told by the newlyweds on a Private Island called ISLA DEI CIPRESSI populated by herons, and small kangaroos by the charming Pusiano Lake (close to Como Lake). The gloomy day gave to this whimsical story an ethereal atmosphere. We started to tell the story with an intimate getting ready of both in a vintage-romantic room of the only house existing in the island. The bride found a love letter from her granny written many years before and hidden in her shelter, on the house on the tree. Flowers, floral wreath and bouquet have been made with flowers and greenery found on the island, mixed with garden roses that gives a boho suggestion. A ray of light at sunset reveals the last moment of intimacy before getting back to reality. A boat tour around the lake, the cutting cake near the ancient liberty trampoline, gives this shooting a magical atmosphere.

Warm Russian Winter Wedding

We are oh so excited to share with you this real wedding that’s straight out of a Christmas card! This fresh powdered scene proved to be the perfect backdrop for Anton and Eugenia’s nuptials, and we love that every small detail was an unexpected, but amazingly creative nod to the way the couple first met (you’ll never guess!). Some of our favorite elements include the blue scaled cake, the peppermint bark and marshmallow filled dessert station and the gold terrariums suspended from a mix of wiry branches and twinkle lights – bless Holiday Everyday for this brilliance! July Event incorporated pine needles everywhere they could, and we are obsessed with Eugenia’s bouquet that looks simply frost-kissed. But perhaps the most touching part of this whole celebration was Eugenia’s surprise musical performance (in more ways than one) captured flawlessly by WarmPhoto! Okay enough talking. More ooh-ing and ahh-ing!

From the photographer, WarmPhoto: Anton and Eugenia met ten years ago. She took Mathematics courses at the State University, where Anton taught. Almost ten years after Anton made the marriage proposal on one of the most beautiful squares in Rome under the sparkling light of the sun and the sounds of Italian music.

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!

Italian Winery Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

To say the least about this Christa Taylor Photography wedding inspiration shoot, it is stunning. It’s just in time for the change of the season and we’re completely enamored by all of the colors and the ever-dreamy vineyard setting. CK Weddings and Events enlisted a real engaged couple as their models (an idea we always love) and dressed them up finely to suit the chic, provincial vibe and the soft colors found in the tablescapes and the floral design by Bloomsberry. A personal fave of this shoot are the colors: finely mimicking that always-cool change from the bright heyday of summer to the warmth of fall.

To play off the stunning and romantic setting, we pulled in fresh copper touches which balances so well with the blush, grays, and soft greenery. During the early spring the winery is drenched in soft sunlight and sets a natural tone for these delicate colors, rich textures, and organic elements. Since Maysara Winery is a beautiful example of a family run and local business, keeping all the elements of the shoot local was a passion. The wedding dress was designed and made by the talented Nature of Isa, the gorgeous jewelry created by VK Designs, and the modern suiting provided by Este’s Menswear. Even the darling couple are local and engaged to be married later this summer!

Romantic Redwoods Wedding

Rustic Weddings

The California redwoods are such impressive creations of nature, and in all of their majesty, it’s no wonder why so many couples choose to get hitched there. It’s gorgeous! Victoria Carlson Photography snapped Lindsay and Eugene’s romantic wedding day to our delight. For color choices, Lindsay wanted to keep the focal point on all of the organic elements around, so a clean neutral palette with hints of greys and blues were important. There’s nothing more timeless than a pairing of white and green florals and root & riot did a fantastic job creating such complementary pieces. We give this wedding an A-plus!

California weddings - https://ruffledblog.com/romantic-redwoods-wedding

From the bride, Lindsay: Whenever my husband and I talked about getting married, we always knew we would say “I do” beneath the redwoods. My husband and I love being outdoors in nature, but one of our favorite places to be is amongst the trees. We wanted something simple, elegant, and timeless, yet also laid back and relaxed. My husband and I are not formal people by any means, so it was important for us to have an environment that was comfortable for our guests. Whenever people would ask me about the vibe of my wedding I would tell them, “it’s going to be a magical, romantic forest wedding!” I really feel like I accomplished this! But some more adjectives I used to describe the day were: ethereal and woodsy. Before I purchased ANYTHING I would make sure it stayed true to these descriptions.

I chose a neutral color scheme and I feel like that perfectly complemented the gorgeous setting and the feel of the day. I knew I wanted my bridesmaids in different dresses and different colors, but was still somewhat particular on the dresses they chose. I ended up giving them 10-15 different dresses to choose from and everyone chose the dress that I wanted for them (without me saying a thing!). I thought they all looked beautiful! For the men, I think my groom looks so handsome in navy, so we found a gorgeous slate blue tux for him. He wanted to be in something different than his groomsmen, so we chose grey suits with navy ties for the rest of the guys!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Stay true to you. It sounds cliché, but it is so easy to lose sight of you and your partner during the craziness of wedding planning. Remember that this day is about the two of you and the celebration of your love and commitment to each other – that is all that matters. I loved my wedding day and it went perfect, despite all the things that actually “went wrong” (like it raining on wedding day for our outdoor wedding!) But what I loved the most and what I remember the most are all the amazing moments shared between my husband and me.

Don’t worry about making everyone else happy and just worry about making you and your groom as happy as you can be! Also, we highly encourage a first look. I know it’s not traditional, but aside from saying our vows during our ceremony, our first look was the most special moment. I can’t even explain in words how beautiful that moment was, and one of the only moments of the day where it was just the two of us.

Carmel Forest Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

EPlove

Flowing drinks, gorgeous sky-high redwood trees, and sweet whimsical touches are some of things that made up Ashley and Mike’s fun Carmel wedding. EPlove was there to capture their big day and we’re so, so glad he sent over some amazing shots of their wedding ceremony amidst the mighty California redwood trees. Hana and Pine wanted to keep up with the woodsy theme and incorporated some lovely, dusky-colored floral arrangements of roses and greenery. This beautiful wedding day planned by Colette Cuccia has our hearts fluttering and dreaming of California!

weddings in Carmel - photo by EPlove https://ruffledblog.com/carmel-forest-wedding

From the bride, Ashley: I didn’t have a set vibe but hoped it reflected our personalities while also highlighting our surroundings. Our wedding was in the foothills of Carmel influenced by the Rumsen Native Americans, Mission Indians and Ranchers so we had so much history to pull inspiration from. Getting married in the redwoods was so magical and whimsical, we joked that fairies were going to fly me down the aisle. We wanted every element to reflect us as a couple and as individuals.

Italian Love Letter Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Roma Elizabeth

When Roma Elizabeth was given the chance to head to a workshop by Belleandbeau Photography in England last summer, she jumped for joy at the potential of how beautiful this shoot could be. It turned out to be an artfully-crafted love story between a dashing English gentleman and a lovely lady born and bred in the Italian countryside. The sweetest letters were written and the shoot was their wedding day. How sublime is that and what an experience! The Rose Shed contributed their floral expertise to the whole shoot and made the whole day even more romantic, with bountiful bouquets and centerpieces.

From the photographer, Roma Elizabeth: I think it is important to continue to improve as a wedding photographer and to take every opportunity to learn as much as I can from other people working in the industry who I admire. That’s why I was so excited when last summer I had the honour of being picked as one of 13 participants to be part of a fine art wedding photography workshop with the very talented Naomi and Holly from Belleandbeau Photography.

Let’s switch things up a bit today and go for dark reds and purples in a lovely moody shoot photographed by MW Photography and thoughtfully created by Jessica Wonders. First of all, let’s gab about how amazing this styled shoot looks! From the fashion picks of the bride and groom, to the rich berry tones in her bouquet and the blossoming centerpieces with flowers like dahlias and calla lilies by Forget Me Not Floral Events, this wedding inspiration is just a major win all over. Switch up your wedding inspiration boards and take a gander at this dusky beauty.

From the photographer, MW Photography: I personally loved working with all the vendors on this project. It was my first styled shoot and I think all the vendors did a fantastic job by really pulling this together. My favorite part–although hard to choose because so many things tied in so well–was the flowers! They just make me swoon! All of us had a fun time with the photos and the details of tying in the plum and red theme with winter.

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!

Industrial Modern Colorado Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Connie Whitlock

How lucky is it to be able to pull off a beautiful Galia Lahav wedding dress straight off of the runway and use it in a shoot with Connie Whitlock? Quite lucky, indeed! We’re so excited to share these yummy photos with you so you can go gaga over all of the beautiful details of Moss Denver‘s transformation, and the modern color palette with the Victorian garden-esque florals by Flora by Nora. Simply amazing!

industrial modern Colorado wedding inspiration - photo by Connie Whitlock Photography https://ruffledblog.com/industrial-modern-colorado-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Connie Whitlock: The inspiration for the colors, mood, and style of the shoot came from the invitation suite provided by Wedding Paper Divas. The shoot took place in a modern/urban venue, but we kept the decor very organic and simple. The stunning dress by Galia Lahav is fresh off the runway – we lucked out and had a chance to incorporate it while it’s going around on the trunk show circuit. We loved the juxtaposition of the clean, elegant lines of the modern, urban, industrial venue against the organic feel of all of the decor we chose. We chose organic textures like rustic wood, silks, and linens, and layered with a simple color palette and lush florals. We used overflowing floral to accent everything and to create that look.

Scarborough Fair Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

We just love the inspiration behind today’s shoot oh-so-much. Inspired by the herbs listed in Simon & Garfunkel’s “Scarborough Fair,” the talented team of White Rabbit Studios, Kathleen Bernal Events, and Old Frond set to work on a styled shoot incorporating these fragrant green bits. The result? Total romantic bliss.

Scarborough Fair wedding inspiration - photo by White Rabbit Studios https://ruffledblog.com/scarborough-fair-wedding-inspiration

From the event designer, Kathleen Bernal Events: This wedding inspired styled shoot, entitled “fair and light,” was designed and planned by Kathleen Bernal Events and photographed perfectly by Ashley Vaughn, with White Rabbit Studios. The inspirations for this shoot were the herbs, parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme, as listed in the Simon and Garfunkel song, “Scarborough Fair.” Taking us back to the Medieval times, these particular herbs were often used in wedding bouquets, as symbols of love and prosperity, and ways to ward off bitter and sad feelings. Not only are their scents heavenly, but they are also long-lasting. Mixing these age-old traditions with modern foliage created a stunning set of florals for the bouquet and table decorations. Styled in a magical woodsy area, with traces of a snowy day still remaining, we could not have asked for a more romantic setting.

Equestrian Ranch Wedding

Rustic Weddings

When you’ve got a wedding with a guest horse and a bride wearing Manolo Blahniks, consider me intrigued. Add in a batch of rustic elements, a reception full of lush greenery, and the talents of Sara Lynn Photographic, Organically You Events, and Sweet Pea Flowers and you’ve got me reeled in!

equestrian ranch wedding - photo by Sara Lynn Photographic https://ruffledblog.com/equestrian-ranch-wedding

From the bride, Ellie: Being that our wedding took place out-of-state, it began with quite a bit of research online and frequent trips to Denver to scope out potential wedding vendors. We also spent many nights on the couch with a glass of wine in-hand exploring different design ideas and vendor options. Our saving grace was hiring our local wedding planner, who was able to help make our dream come to life while we were home in Texas. What were your favorite moments from the wedding day? Right before our grand exit, our band put Michael Buble’s “Save the Last Dance For Me” on. While our wedding planner was lining up our guests outside the tent, the two of us remained inside and broke out in a completely unplanned, final bride and groom dance. It was such a magical moment, complete with cheers from our band members!

From the photographer, Sara Lynn Photographic: Ellie and Zach were married on September 26, 2015 at Arrow C Ranch in Parker, Colorado. Their day was a beautifully planned equestrian ranch wedding with bohemian touches mixed with luxury. Some of my favorite touches were the antlers and furs scattered around the tables, chairs and lounge seating area. Ellie’s ‘something blue’ were high heeled Manolo Blahnik’s that turned her into a supermodel that she paired with a stunning layered gown.

Their ceremony was in the estate’s courtyard and they were married under a draped arbor with Pike’s Peak in the background. The reception was kicked off with yard games, drinks and appetizers and guests made their way to the tented reception where they feasted on a Texan themed meal to tie in Zach’s southern roots. The night had a cool breeze, perfect because as the band kicked off Zach and Ellie’s first dance, the full harvest moon began to show – something almost every guest took snapshots of.

Farmhouse Inspired Wedding Ideas

“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.

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.

Pumpkin Themed Fall Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Photos by:

Jenny Smith & Co.

We know there are a ton of fall lovers out there, and this wedding is for you. Bride Samantha loves the cozy season too, and had always envisioned pumpkins at her own wedding — and that’s exactly what she got! Jenny Smith & Co. and Mayberry Events put together some beautiful work here, and thanks to their considerable talents we’re sharing this beaut with you all today.

fall wedding ceremony setup - photo by Jenny Smith and Co https://ruffledblog.com/pumpkin-themed-fall-wedding

From the bride, Samantha: We met at a coffee shop bible study through a friend. After our first meeting, David started spending time with the homeless with me every Friday at a park in Costa Mesa. In the midst of loving the forgotten and downtrodden our love began. Two years later (with one year being long distance) David proposed! I love fall and I have always envisioned pumpkins at my wedding! I wanted my wedding to be fall themed – fairy tale pumpkins, fall colors, pumpkin desserts, pumpkin patch, etc. Paramount Ranch was the perfect venue for us. We wanted to feel secluded and surrounded by nature. The venue had a rustic feel and included an old town used in film productions. It was so unique and had such a romantic feel.

During our ceremony we said our own vows and we took communion together. We wanted to invite people into our relationship and to know our love is founded on Jesus’ love for us. My most vivid memory that day was during our vows. I laughed when I heard his personal vows because they were almost the exact same as mine. It reminded me that we were like minded and had similar desires for our marriage.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? My advice to future brides and grooms is to be emotionally present. Remember that your wedding day isn’t about the decor, DIY, or food. It is about committing your life to the person in front of you. Be present with each other and take in beauty of the love you are celebrating.

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?

Handcrafted Wedding with a Rabbits and Wreaths Theme

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Dearheart Photos

While themes certainly aren’t necessary for a wedding day, we sure enjoy seeing brides go all out with their own once in a while. Jana and Heinrich chose a “rabbits and wreaths” theme, which had tablescapes full of sweet bunny ceramics, rabbit shaped boutonnieres made out of wood for the gents, and floral wreaths for the bridesmaids in lieu of traditional bouquets. Dearheart Photos and The Stables did some incredible work, so let’s take a look!

handcrafted wedding with a rabbits and wreaths theme - photo by Dearheart Photos https://ruffledblog.com/handcrafted-wedding-with-a-rabbits-and-wreaths-theme

From the bride, Jana: I wanted my wedding to be very rustic and we wanted to do everything ourselves.
We wanted to create a whimsical feel. Our theme was “rabbits and wreaths.” All the tables had wooden or ceramic rabbits on them. The table numbers hung from wreaths. We also hid rabbits in the garden at the pre-drinks. We did not have a set colour scheme my bridesmaids wore different coloured dresses and the flowers were all different colours. We wanted to incorporate the feeling of spring.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Just remember what the day is all about…it is a celebration of your relationship and your wedding day should reflect your personalities. People will try to persuade you into going with their choices but stand your ground and go with your gut feeling. Your day should be about your style and not someone else’s.

Camping Inspired Wedding at Sundance Resort

Elegant Weddings

Photos by:

Rebekah Westover

Goodness gracious ladies and gents, sit tight because we’ve got one heck of an event to share with you today. Stacy and TJ’s wedding at the renowned Sundance Resort in Utah is a brilliant collaboration of vision and talented vendors, including Rebekah Westover, Michelle Leo Events, and Urban Chateau, just to name a handful. Their day is overflowing with captivating ideas, so let’s jump on in!

Camping Inspired Wedding at Sundance Resort - photo by Rebekah Westover https://ruffledblog.com/camping-inspired-wedding-at-sundance-resort

From the bride, Stacy: Early on we decided that we wanted our wedding to be an intimate celebration with our closest family and friends, spanning several days. We wanted every element to reflect us as a couple, which meant balancing TJ’s love for the outdoors and rustic aesthetics with some glamour in a place that has special meaning to us. A year earlier, TJ and I shared our first camping trip at Mount Timpanogos, and loved the idea of having the mountain serve as the backdrop for the weekend’s festivities. In addition to the wedding, over the course of the weekend we invited guests to partake a number of activities and events that we coordinated including: hikes, a rafting excursion, a BBQ with cornhole and a bluegrass band, and more.

During our nondenominational wedding ceremony, guests were given a small cup which contained wine from a bottle that TJ had purchased in France as a child. A young romantic at heart, while in France on a school trip, TJ managed to use all the cash he had on hand to buy a nice bottle of wine with the intention of sharing it with his future wife on their wedding day. He also promised himself that he would take his future wife there one day. Cheers to that! Hours after our engagement, he surprised me with a trip to Paris that night.

Our wedding was sophisticated and down to earth at once, and truly a reflection of us and our love for each other. We didn’t want to compete with the natural beauty of the mountain setting, so we incorporated minimal teal, gold, and tribal elements with neutral colors throughout. Guests received teal and gold arrows with their names calligraphed on the fletching to escort them to their seats. Bistro lights hung above the dining room and chandeliers were suspended above the dance floor to balance the rustic glam aesthetic. Meanwhile the floral centerpieces provided pops of bright pinks and reds, and taper candles and votives lined the blue farm tables. We wanted guests to be comfortable and have places they could go to sit and talk once the dancing began, so we arranged vintage furniture inside by the dance floor and outside on the deck with fire pits.

Given we were planning the wedding from NYC, we decided to focus on a few specific DIY items in order to personalize the event. Upon checkin, guests were greeted with linen hiking backpacks filled with assorted goods including the homemade gorp that I always make for TJ when we go hiking. The key ingredient is orange chocolate! At the wedding, we served guests coffee that we brought from Irving Farm in NYC, the location of our first date. We also spent a tremendous amount of time writing personalized wedding vows and crafting decor items for the July 4th BBQ rehearsal dinner.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Your wedding is likely to be the only time in your life when all of your loved ones are together in one place at the same time. Take time throughout the course of the festivities to look around and soak up the love surrounding you. I can’t recall half the details of our wedding day, but when I close my eyes I can recall the feeling of pure joy and the chill that overcame me as I looked out to all our friends and family from our chuppah and the dance floor on our wedding day. That memory will forever warm my heart. Also remember to take ample time for yourself and your significant other. On the morning of my wedding day, I woke up at dawn and sat outside with my journal and a cup of coffee for two hours before my mother-in-law led yoga and meditation for the bridal party. It was such a refreshing way to start the day and allowed me to reflect on the significance of the commitment TJ and I were making. We also made it a point to have plenty of private time together throughout the weekend, whether it was taking the scenic detour to get to our rehearsal dinner, going for a walk on the mountain during cocktail hour, or enjoying a private picnic lunch after the group hike. Inevitably the events will fly by, but taking a moment here and there to pause and reflect on the occasion with your partner will help you be more fully present in the moment. These moments ended up being some of my favorites and are the ones I recall most vividly months later.

From the event designer, Michelle Leo Events: Stacy and TJ were a delightful couple to work with. It always helps when my clients are interested in creating something truly unique and personal rather than duplicating something they’ve already seen when it comes to their wedding design. Stacy put her faith in me as her designer and together I feel we were able to create something that was as equally fun as it was elegant. We infused rustic pieces into the beautiful setting of Sundance through wood tables and linen furniture pieces to create comfortable conversation areas for guests. To balance these rustic elements, we used lush blooms in bold colors on top of the light wood tables dressed with cream runners to create drama. A variety of gold candlesticks with tapers also dressed the tables. This lighting combined with the strung bistro lights overhead created a comfortable and romantic atmosphere for guests to dine. One of my favorite elements of this “Tribal Glam” wedding was the combination of tribal elements throughout the paper suite. I loved the patterned used by Peter Loves Jane on Stacy and TJ’s invitation suite which carried over to the table menu and place cards. To accentuate this tribal element, we designed a completely custom gold and ivory target for the escort card display. The target was filled with darling mint and gold arrows provided by Fletcher and Fox. Guests names and table assignments appeared in hand calligraphy by Curlique Designs on the fletching of each arrow. Guests really enjoyed approaching the target and locating their arrow (which also served as their wedding favor). Rather than signing a typical guest book, guests wrote messages to the couple in a coffee table book boasting images of beautiful Mount Timpanogos, the mountain that served as the beautiful and natural backdrop for Stacy and TJ’s nuptials. Overall this wedding was a joy to plan and design and I’m extremely happy with the results of this darling celebration.

California Wedding with Leafy Decor

Rustic Weddings

We hope you’ve got some time to spare, because this wedding from Erica Houck Photography is a doozy – in the best way ever. Bride Chelseah planned her wedding day around the theme of vintage-antique-meets-boho, and the result is surprisingly timeless and absolutely breathtaking. Don’t you just love her cascading bouquet with heaps of eucalyptus?

Rural California wedding - photo by Erica Houck Photography https://ruffledblog.com/rural-california-wedding

From the bride, Chelseah: Making my day happen on a budget was not only important to me, it was my only option. I went full commando mode to make our beautiful wedding happen on a non-existent budget. I wanted our wedding to be fun and laid back. Everything spurred from there. Fiddy and I are both very into antiques and items chucked full of patina so we centered our wedding theme on that shared love (the bohemian aspects were all me though… guilty as charged). I went from flea market, to thrift stores and even to some sketchy parts of town (wouldn’t recommend it) to collect all of the items. It took about a year but came in under $1000 total for all of our vintage décor.

Most everything was made or assembled either by myself, my mom, her best friend Debbie, or my rock star Matron of Honor, Andrea. There was so much painting and assembling involved it took nearly our entire engagement to complete all of the projects. Though Pinterest is a wonderful thing, do your research. Sometimes Pinterest doesn’t always warn you about the potential problems, like the health concerns related to sanding lead paint or that making a door table really isn’t that simple. A wonderful friend from church, Erin and her amazing crew, did all of my flowers for me. We bought wholesale and my method for picking flowers was based on three things. 1. What is in season? 2. What do I like? 3. Which flowers will give me the best bang for my buck? We used a lot of silver dollar eucalyptus, a tree which we had access to, which saved us tons.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? The greatest most helpful lesson I learned is that anything with “wedding” attached to it is likely going to cost at least three times more. Sometimes we as brides get so caught up in what a wedding is supposed to be we lose track of not only our budgets but what we really want. Taking the word “wedding” out of most of your searches will not only give you more options but a better variety of prices. This is particularly helpful when you are looking for vendors. Look for non-traditional vendors who are excited to be a unique addition to your event and are willing and motivated to work with you. Never be afraid to negotiate.

Leduc Stone Barn Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

David Guenther

Groomsmen in dashing blue suits, a stunning bride in a Spanish veil, and a reception that sends our hearts aflutter – how could we possibly resist? Brett and Brittany’s wedding day came together with the talents of David Guenther, D’elle Event & Design, and Tickled Floral, who all made this glamorous and relaxed day shine as bright as fireworks.

From the bride, Brittany: I wanted our wedding to be bright and fun, laid back, but glamorous. Garden Party, outdoors, but not backyard BBQ – even though our caterer did BBQ our food :) Our colors were mainly bright pink and purple, but with bright green accents. My husband and his friends made all of the wood tables and the wooden cross at the alter of our ceremony. All decorations were hand made – sewed the fabric that draped on the ceiling of the tent, made a cone back drop, reused extra invites to make paper fans for all guests for the ceremony.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Get a wedding planner, because you will go crazy without one! Don’t listen to what other people want for your wedding, do what you want and what makes you happy. Start planning early! (and saving too!) Don’t spend more than you can afford – it’s only one day of your life. Go on a honeymoon right after – you need a break!

Wedding Music:
We had a live guitar soloist, our good friend played for our ceremony and he just played whatever he wanted to! I don’t even remember what it sounded like :)
First Dance: “Never Going to Give You Up” (original song by Rick Astley) sung live by Ryan Hamilton and acoustic guitar by Ryan Jacobson.

From the photographer, David: Brett and Brittany are both super stylish, and they’re probably the coolest bride and groom I’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting. Brett hand-built every table at the reception, and the elegant style of the decor matched perfectly with his rustic craftsmanship. It’s rare to find a couple whose personal style matches so well with the style of the wedding day, but these two made it happen.

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.

Backyard Indiana Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

We’ve seen many a bridal hairstyle here at Ruffled over the years (and have pinned many faves!), and this high bun + braided halo + floral crown is quickly rising to the top of our list of most inspiring styles. Kristin La Voie Photography worked her photographic magic behind the scenes for us, so let’s take a look!

From the photographer, Kristin: Do you know that feeling you get when you just know you are in the presence of pure happiness and love? There are no two sweeter, more down-to-earth people than right here. I couldn’t stop smiling. In fact, my cheeks still hurt from all the smiling while editing. No one else has ever had quite that effect on me while editing either. Even tears of happiness ran down my puffy cheeks.

You see for Heather & Mike, the house where Mike grew up was the perfect location for them to tie the knot surrounded by their closest family and friends in the backyard. They walked hand in hand together down a row of trees, to no music at all. They had their loved ones standing around them, encircling them in more love than one could imagine. They did not need a long drawn out ceremony, because all they wanted was to profess their forever to each other. They cried together. They laughed together. They were just themselves. And it was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. All of the details, the colors, the ambiance; swoon. And a good backyard wedding to me… well, it’s the most beautiful type of wedding there is.
