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

We’re loving this masculine-inspired shoot at The 1912 —a brand new Santa Ana venue. The creatives, led bySugar Branch Events, were inspired by copper, leather, cement and whiskey and sophisticated vibe. Add in a real couple in love and the shoot is sure to inspire. We’re definitely digging the unique floral designs by The Bloom of Time and the gorgeous food styling by 24 Carrots. And, what’s more perfect for a groom than whisky-inspired details?? Check out these beautifully captured images by Brett Hickman Photographers for all the details!

From the team: The shoot centered around a farmhouse table covered with a rich cognac leather runner and white blooms. Each type of flower was arranged in its own vase for a masculine touch, and paired with greenery, copper-sprayed eucalyptus and suede-like magnolia leaves. Each set of matte gray plates was wrapped in a metallic hand-lettered leather strap to serve as the place card, and was accented with a deep blue cotton linen napkin loosely wrapped with a black velvet ribbon. Maidenhair fern favors planted in handmade cement and copper pots served as the individual favor at each setting. Small bottles of bourbon served as the escort cards, wrapped in a copper, hand-painted sleeve. Catering included a miniature Bites & Shots menu of succulent beef with dark beer shooters and Moscow mules (in tiny copper cups) paired with the cutest little sliders you ever did see!

To add a touch of personality that might suit the gay community, the paper goods utilize slight innuendos to classic gay culture (like the invitation attire reference to a “white party,” outshining the bride, and the word “commitment”). Even the signature drinks are a reflection of the masculinity and spicy Latin culture of our gentlemen couple.

We couldn’t have said it better that stylist Krissi Farrimond who had these words about the anniversary shoot: “From the obvious love and playfulness of our real couple, to the stunning hanging floral, to the five-tier cake with sugar flowers as big as your face, to the light pouring in from the expansive open window, and that gown! Everything felt as if spring was sprinkling each detail with pixie dust.” Yep! That pretty much sums it up and we know your going to love the way Grey Collective member Sheradee Hurst captured all the details on film!

From stylist Krissi Farrimond: The gorgeous florals, appearing out of thin air to drape the table in botanical bliss, by Talia Prather ofInspire Events, featured blue hydrangeas, green hydrangeas, delicate Jerusalem blue anemones, blue thistle, small blue veronica, silver Brunia, white Amaryllis, Dendrobium Orchids, a pop of pink with spray Roses and white Anemones, all beautifully complimented by copious amounts of lush greenery, including Moss, green Salal Leaves and green Amaranthus, which is hanging everywhere.

The five-tier cake is blanketed in fondant and inspired by the bridal gown. “As soon as I laid eyes on the dress, I could see the cake, from the silver and gold sugar to match the beaded bodice, to the ruffles and textured fondant,” said Amy ofmy Cakes. It was softened with a serenity blue watercolor tier, topped with handmade gumpaste flowers.

We’re always beyond-excited to share images from Anouschka Rokebrand—especially when she pairs up with floral genius RedWhiteBluePink in the chicest city in the world! Paris is the perfect backdrop for the oh-so-current bridal styling in this elopement inspiration—the textured lace cropped top on the bride is fab and we’re obsessed with that Trousseau & Co. hatbox! The florals are punchy and the authentic Parisian cakes from Angelina are adorable. This on is sure to inspire all you french-loving brides!

Serenity and Quartz—Pantone sure got their colors right this year because we seem to love every inspiration shoot that highlights them. In this case, the talented team led by Alex Thornton Photography and Kennedy Occasions added marble and rose gold/copper aesthetics to bring a contrast to the soft pantone color palette. The session was photographed entirely on film to retain the romantic feel they were after and we know you’re going to love the inspiration as much as we do!

OH EM GEEEE you guys! This inspiration shoot, planned by Pop the Cork Designs, is what dreams are made of.  The all-star team, including one of our all-time favorite florists Holly Chapple and the ah-mazing Elizabeth Fogarty behind the lens, aimed to capture the carefree elegance of the wedding day. We’re obsessing over all the blush and peach goodness, like the stationery from Julia Ha Caligraphy, sweet cakes by Fresh Bakes and textural beauty of the dress by Elizabeth Dye. And the florals, we’ll never get enough of these florals!!
