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

Influenced by enchanting florals and a pastel color palette, Westcott Weddings created a stunning scene bursting with romantic, elegant details. The venue, Villa Del Lago is well known for its immaculate grounds and views, and it served as the perfect French Countryside backdrop. We’re loving the timelessness of the muted palette, the soft white florals by Bristol Lane, the gold calligraphy by Wondrous Whimsy and gorgeous vintage car. This one’s a real formula for wedding elegance success and lucky for the team enlisted Kirsten Wilhelm Photography to work her magic behind the camera a capture all the beautiful details. Enjoy!

Dare we say it—summer’s end is in sight (sniffle) but it’s beautiful shoots like this one, planned and photographed by Anna Kardos Photography, that remind us to savor all the fleeting final days of the season. Filled to the brim with sunny elegance, the details shine at the manicured grounds of the Tuckahoe Plantation. Floral Designer,Love Blooms DC created the most elegant overgrown bouquet to fit the color scheme of clean and white with highlights of dusty blue and lavender and Jenn Heller Design Co. created timeless calligraphy and stationery pieces. Happily Ever Designed Event Planning & Rental styled the details to perfection and the resulting images are sure to delight!

We’re loving the intimacy of this lovely countryside wedding inspiration. It’s organic and delicate like the natural surroundings of The Retreat at Cool Spring and the textured details designed by stylist Linda Ha Events create and inviting scene that embraces the beauty of the countryside at sunset. We’re especially into the gorgeous florals by Nature Composed. The unruly greens cascading down the staircase are quietly spectacular and the bouquet and centerpieces are stunning! Lucky for us Kristen Lynne Photography was behind the lens to capture everything with the romantic qualities of film photography.

We’ve got a major soft spot for blue details and this gorgeous shoot at Kohl Mansion planned by Events by Satra brings the blue details out in major fashion—like a gorgeous tailored blue-on-blue groom ensemble, an adorable collection of teal mini cakes by Pretty Please SF, and silk ribbons in various blues cascading from an oversized bouquet.  The blue touches are delightful and elegant and captured beautifully, along with some gorgeous bright light, in these photographs by Catie Coyle Photography. Enjoy!

You guys are going to love this ethereal elopement styled shoot from Viva L’Event and Vanessa + Thaniel Photography. The team was “inspired by the ocean – delicate and light in a way that seems too transcendent for this world, yet profoundly deep and unknown – much like the journey to finding sublime love with your mate.” The details are so gorgeous. Complementing the stunning beachside backdrop of the untamed elements were a soft, muted color palette, a gloriously chic and voluminous crop top gown, cascading untamed florals and greenery by Viva L’Event, and silk ribbon accents from Natalie Stopka. We’re especially drawn to the vintage trailer from Ida Lou Weddings—SO adorable. Lucky for us Vanessa + Thaniel we behind the lens to capture incredible shots of the details and even more beautiful shots of the couple, in love on the beach. We know you’ll love the beauty of the shoot as much as we do!

From Viva L’Event

We loved the transitional looks throughout the day, from the bridal luncheon-ready romper (shouldn’t every bride have a bridal romper!?) to her sweet lingerie captured in an adorable vintage trailer – available for rent as a light and beautiful mobile bridal suite, and perfect accommodations for the non-traditional wedding.

Stunning hand-drawn calligraphy graced a sentimental, personalized handkerchief from the groom to his bride, the keepsake vows, invitations, elopement announcements, and a gorgeous farewell banner with the couple’s favorite quote by E.E. Cummings: “You are my sun, my moon and all my stars.” Standing hand-in-hand, encircled by a driftwood altar, serenaded by the crashing waves and lit by the setting sun, they exchanged vows in an intimate setting and became husband and wife.
