I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

The team led by Brita Olsen Creative and J. Lee Photos put together this lovely shoot—a take on simple elegance, incorporating muted and beautiful tones within every aspect. We love the bold emerald green hue they highlight throughout the details of the day set in NYC with florals by Days of May Florals and beautiful paper by Chavelli Tsui. The team describes that they “felt like this inspiration is a beautiful take on what anyone could really incorporate into their wedding decor without needing it to be overly complex. Less is more; refined and pretty.” We couldn’t agree more.

Katie and David’s wedding day was nestled in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina with a ceremony space that will take your breath away. The styling and florals of Kate Asire Flowers bring the celebration to life with draped greenery and abundant arrangements and bouquets. The white tent reception at Claxton Farm Inc was light and bright and just, plain happy! We love the smiles of the couple and all the adorable details captured in the lovely style of Jessi Nichols Photography.

What made the wedding special and unique?

After being together for a total of five years, finally getting to the wedding day and seeing how beautifully everything turned out was amazing. We had friends and family fly in from so many states and even another country, which was incredible. The venue itself was breathtaking – I loved how natural and laid back everything felt without being too casual. It truly was the most joyful day!

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

I originally went dress shopping with my mom and aunt, and we visited several local places while they were in town. Although I really liked a couple that I tried, I wasn’t sure I had found the one yet. A few weeks later, my friend and bridesmaid was in town staying with me for the weekend, and we went back to the first store, Carolina Traditions, really more as something fun to do while she was in town. She ended up picking out a beautiful dress for me to try, and I knew right away it was exactly what I was looking for!

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

We got married in front of a huge wooden cross that our florist, Kate Asire, had draped with a beautiful garland made of greenery and flowers. That, along with a hand-lettered sign a friend made for us with Song of Solomon 3:4 were the sweetest reminders of what the day was all about.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

There are a couple of things that stand out – David and I did a first look under a willow tree right beside a pond that was just down from our ceremony site. We both were pretty anxious all day but as soon as we saw each other, we felt relaxed and excited about the rest of the day. It was such a sweet moment to be able to share a few minutes together alone before the ceremony. Second, the ceremony was outdoors, and the weather started looking ominous right as the guests were arriving. It began drizzling as I was walking down the aisle, and although David and I hardly noticed, everyone told us later that they were collectively holding their breath and praying it would stop! Luckily it calmed down and actually held off until right after the ceremony, when it started pouring and the wind started blowing like crazy.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

David and I both went to Clemson University, and although we had many mutual friends, we never met while he was in school (he was a year ahead of me). We met in Clemson a couple of weeks before I graduated when he was back in town for an alumni weekend. We dated for almost four years after that before he proposed on the beach during a New Year’s trip to Miami. I later found out that he had taken his mom and my best friend ring shopping back in November, and since we had to drive separately to Miami for New Year’s, he drove a few hours out of the way to take my dad to lunch and ask for his blessing. I was completely clueless about all of this, so it was the biggest surprise when he popped the question! :)

We’re really digging all the inspiring elements in this moody styled shoot from the team at  Studio 110. With planning led by Jill & Co Events, the ethereal floral inspiration weaves its way through all the details, like the floral stitched gown from Moondance Bridal, a grey, velvet tablescape overflowing with peachy tones in the florals by Camellia Floral Design, the gorgeous green floral cake and cookies by Lele Pattiserie. We love the balance of light and dark in details like the juxtaposition of dark taper candles against the soft blooms in the centerpiece. Kristen Beinke Photography was the girl behind the lens capturing all the gorgeous details, not to mention some spectacular light at FD Photo Studio.

Catherine and Patricio’s intimate elopement at The Fairmont Empress is one for the books. The couple chose a quiet elopement in lieu of a traditional wedding including the upwards-of-four-hundred immmediate family members. This way, they could celebrate in a way that felt most natural to them and also get the look and vibe that they wanted. French Kiss Events helped the couple achieve their vision and—WOW—is it STUNNING. Overflowing, romantic florals everywhere by Verbena Floral Design, blush watercolor nd calligraphy stationery by Caribou Creative and, of course, the striking historic Empress Library location. It’s all just so beautiful and we’re thrilled to share all the details and moments as captured by Taylor Roades Photography.

What made the wedding special and unique?

Our wedding was special in that it was so intimate and unique to us. We both come from incredibly large families that we are very close to. We knew that to include all of them would easily put our event at over 400 guests, and that just did not feel like it fit the two of us. Patricio and I are both somewhat quiet and reserved and do not love being the center of attention. Also, I’ve been a wedding blog follower and enthusiast for so long, I knew exactly the vibe and look I wanted to achieve. In order to maintain that feel and do it well, our best option was to keep it small and romantic. We only included our parents, siblings, nieces and nephews for a total of thirteen attending. Barb was able to knock my vision out of the park just via a few phone calls, emails, and a shared Pinterest board. It was as seamless and simple as I could imagine wedding planning being.

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

A few years ago, one of my sweet fellow teacher friends left her job at our school to pursue her dream of owning a bridal boutique. I admired her drive so much that I knew I’d buy my dress from her when the time came! It is called Blue Bridal Boutique on the well-known South Congress Avenue in Austin, Texas. The dress I chose was romantic, delicate lace that I thought was so sweet, but on top of that, it was so comfortable! I felt like I was wearing a nightgown.

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

Patricio and I are both Hispanic. His family actually being from Mexico, we included a bilingual book of love poems by Pablo Neruda at the table as our wedding favors. My dad and I are both music lovers, so he had a blast choosing the jazz trio and per his request, they learned a song called “Lucky” by Austin artist, Kat Edmonson, for our father/daughter dance. That dance was a very precious memory. My mom is a librarian, so having our wedding in the beautiful Empress library was a kind of nod to her. My mother-in-law gave me a gorgeous fur cape to wear while we were taking pictures outside because it was a little chilly for us Texans! I wore a diamond cross pin on my dress that has been worn by brides in my family for five generations, all the way back to Ireland. That gave me the feeling of having all the family with me.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

Every detail about the night was memorable. Nothing felt rushed, stressful or forced. The flowers were BREATHTAKING. I loved walking across the street after the ceremony to take some photos in front of the Harbor. The food was amazing – I’m going to try to replicate the salmon and gnocchi dish for our anniversary! After dinner, we sat on the lounge furniture with our nieces and nephews, and impromptu read a couple books with them that we had put in their little goodie bags, which I know we would not have been able to do during a larger wedding. We, of course, are so excited as we continue the celebrations back in Texas with the rest of our friends and family, but the most special thing to us was bringing just our two immediate families together for a special trip to get to know each other better and witness our marriage, and that’s exactly what we did!

It’s always fun to see the wedding day that a wedding planner creates for herself. In this case, Grey Collective member Dana, of Field & Feather, put together a modern-boho celebration with a fresh, laid-back vibe. Show-stopping details include the foliage wall and details by Florist: The Farmers Daughter, the graphic, black-and-white stationery and paper by Field & Feather, hand-dipped linens, the naked cake by  The Butterwood Bake Consortium and a ballerina silhouette Leanne Marshall gown. Notably, though, when the couple encountered tough times during their planning process, even the focus of  a professional planner bride was challenged. See how Dana worked through it and the beautiful, intimate day that was the result in these stunning images by Palermo Photography.

What made the wedding special and unique?

The year we spent planning our wedding was more trying than not, and brought on new challenges. In addition to being newly engaged and planning a wedding, my husband was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. As we rode the learning curve of what that meant, we were simultaneously designing and coordinating things like invites, budgets, and decor. Even as an event planner, it started to feel materialistic compared to what we were going through in “real life”. But we carried on and tried to stay focused on designing a day that would reflect who we are together. We are so happy we did, as the day was exactly what we wanted and needed–mostly thanks to our amazing vendors, friends, and family. We’ve never felt more love and support as we did on that day, knowing everyone traveled great lengths to be with us in Pittsburgh. We will forever be thankful to those that shared the weekend with us.

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

The wedding dress was Stella by Leanne Marshall. A ballerina style has always been a silhouette that works with my body type. I tried fighting it in the beginning of my search, wanting something “new” for my wedding style. But in the end I tried on this dress, and it just felt like mine. Each of Leanne’s designs are beautifully draped and layered, making you feel like you’re in a romantic dream. My husband still claims it to be “the most beautiful dress that’s ever existed”, and that’s all a bride wants to hear at the end of the day. I never wanted to take it off.

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

We wanted our venue to feel cozy and fun and a little non-traditional. Bar Marco–which is a converted fire station–was really special in allowing our vision to happen. They allowed us the freedom to be creative with how we designed the space. On the patio garden, we felt like we were in someone’s backyard. And inside, we felt like we were hosting a party at home. Field & Feather hand-dipped all of the linens and set up very cozy lounges against my favorite detail: the fern wall installed by The Farmer’s Daughter. All of the signage, coasters and quotes throughout the space were handmade by Field & Feather and were special to us. But, hands down, the most personal touch was the furniture, which was designed and custom made by my dad and me. It was so special to see all our work as we walked down the aisle and enjoyed the night!

What was the most memorable part of the day?

The most memorable part of the day was our first look. Up until that point, we had put so much effort into designing the wedding and making sure it looked good and was laid back and fun for our guests. We very much knew how the event was going to “look” but didn’t comprehend how emotional it was going to be. When we saw each other for the first time, we immediately realized that we were there for much more than fern walls and good food. It was very special and I’ll never forget Tim’s face when he turned around or how much we giggled between happy tears.
