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

Susan and Alex both spent much of their youth by the water so Tiburon, with its coastal views and gorgeous scenery, was a natural choice for the couple’s destination wedding. We love the way planner Cassy Rose Events created a day filled with romance, beautiful gathered wildflowers by Mandolin Flowers and relaxed vintage details at Corinthian Yacht Club. Lucky for us, J Wiley Photography was there to capture all the happy moments set against a stunning seaside backdrop. Enjoy!

This Chicago-based couple are college sweethearts, and chose to have their destination wedding at Old St. Hilary’s Chapel set atop a grassy hillside in Tiburon, CA. Susan, a San Francisco native, writes, “The ceremony site is a small white clapboard former church located on a wildflower preserve overlooking the SF bay. We fell in love with the church immediately because it felt intimate, full of history, and a little quirky. We both spent a lot of time by the water growing up (Susan in the Bay Area, Alex in Cape Cod) and chose a venue by the water with gorgeous views.”

They incorporated the wildflower motif into all of their ribbon-adorned floral arrangements, and didn’t shy away from color! Their brightly colored flowers popped against the neutral landscape of the chapel and the whites and sky blues of the reception space.

Susan kept it simple with her understated, lace-back Amy Kuschel gown and baby’s breath adorning her updo, and Alex stayed sharp in a J. Crew tuxedo with classic lines.

The couple transported their wedding party and guests to the reception in an iconic San Francisco trolley car which perfectly captured the flavor of this destination wedding, and everyone partied the night away to a live band.

The Concept: Layered in perplexing patina and mystique, an inimitable beauty emerged in a faded manor from the bygone era. Dusky roses in tints of mauve and mustard mixed with sumptuous pure white peonies form an intoxicating palette that carries a powerful visual impact. The decadent backdrop speaks of decayed opulence with its manifest signs of nostalgia – floor sweeping fraying velvet drapery, heirloom decorated rooms, delicate sheer lace gown adorned with hand-sewn rhinestone embellishment, and so on. A sense of unutterable poetic allure is everywhere.

Spring means blooming trees and florals and green, green, GREEN! But it also means rain in much of the country, and this lovely editorial from Claire Duran Weddings and Events is the perfect inspiration for bringing spring indoors. The white walls and large windows of Pamela Jane Studio provide gorgeous light and a softness to the fun details in green copper, gold, and green and gourgeous florals by Succulents and Saffron Design. We love Lauren Werkheiser Photography‘s bright images capturing the airy romance of the shoot. Enjoy!

We love the way creative director and stylist Cynthia Martyn Events describes the inspiration of today’s featured shoot: “low, luminous light, a rustic ambiance, moody hues of blue and grey, and gorgeous organic details.” The result is a beautiful editorial with an intriguing etherial vibe. The inspiration was Scandinavian Winter—which they nailed— but we definitely think the relaxed elegance of the florals by Sweet Woodruff  and stationery by Post & Plume would translate beautifully to an outdoor, organic spring celebration too. Of course, we’re obsessed with Grey Collective member Corina V. Photography fine art style. She captured the essence of the shoot perfectly with her film photography.

From Cynthia Martyn – Creative Director/Stylist:

Nordic Beauty is a concept that we put together to explore the beauty of the Scandinavian Winter – low, luminous light, a rustic ambiance, moody hues of blue and grey, and gorgeous organic details all brought together in a wedding setting. We wanted to showcase a less contemporary Scandinavian style and focus on the beautiful earthiness of places like Iceland.  The wood table and chairs, the tangled beauty of the loosely arranged florals, and details like the delicate blue ceramic charger plates all add a serene beauty to the setting.  A gathering where you take comfort in the harvest and bounty of the land, even during the coldest days of Winter.  Celebrating a great love, surrounded by your closest friends and family.

From Collective Member Corina Van Sluytman – Photographer:

I wanted the imagery to be hauntingly mysterious to convey something ethereal, moody & intriguing for this shoot. Brides can easily incorporate some of the Old World charm and organic elements into their own wedding by adding some blue & grey shades,  beautiful tapered grey candles in vintage brass holders and loose bouquets.

We’re super excited to be sharing this gorgeous styled shoot from Anna Smith Photography with you today! Led by coordinator and stylist Chic Fleur Weddings and Events, the team was inspired by a vintage blue and white china pattern and built around a punchy palette of blue and white with pops of coral. Vella Nest created garden-like florals incorporating tons of garden roses, anemone, dahlias while Bunny and Bear created pattern-filled custom stationery pieces. We’re especially loving the bride’s second dress—the blue pattern matches the china perfectly! So fun and we know you’ll love it!
