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

We’re loving this colorful take on Autumn nuptial style from Grey Collective member Shannon Schultz Events. Shannon and her amazing team collaborated at the Hickory Street Annex to create a look that’s both familiar and fresh. The colorful florals by Bella Flora of Dallas with deep, rich tones and pops of pastel are perfect for fall and the calligraphy stationery by Silver Fox Calligraphy set the tone with the burgundy, textural accents. The tablescape elements nod to traditional family gatherings but feel completely modern. Check out all the beautiful images by Elisabeth Carol for all the gorgeous seasonal inspiration.

from the planner: With touches of old and new you can create a warm traditional on-trend wedding. We created something that speaks to the familiar sense of the autumnal season. With a tablescape that is thoughtful and makes you feel right at home and colors that warm your heart, you’ll see how a wedding can be reminiscent of your family traditions yet also be new and engaging.

The table is dressed with Spode dishware and gold rimmed glassware that makes you feel like you are sitting at your very own family holiday table. We modernized it by including some on-trend elements such as the matte gold flatware and hand-loom table runner. Mixing the familiar and the new generates a feeling of comfort and interest. To bring in more interest we used an innovative translucent hand-scripted flat place card and paired it with a customary linen napkin, again to create that juxtaposition of tradition and on-trend.

Our bride is wearing the Martina Liana separates; a new take on mix and matching wedding attire. With a good mix of tradition and boho we chose the Sadie skirt and paired it with the Casey tulle corset, as tulle is so very synonymous with weddings but wearing a blush top has just the right hint of new.

All of the details: the champagne, the shoes, and the pie come from custom but are given a new twist. Serve champagne with thyme, an herb of the season. The matte gold shoes look like they could be from your grandmother’s closet, except with a young tall heel, and we all enjoy a few too many slices of pie over the holidays so why not dress it up with some gorgeous floral.

So break out the good dishes, find your favorite on-trend inspiration and enjoy this wonderful season.

It’s a rainbow of fall foliage in this gorgeous shoot from Schon Photography. Filled with amazing earthy tones with pops of color, Fresh Designs Florist gives us some incredible inspiration with a cascading bouquet and bold centerpieces setting the foundations of the gemtones in the tablescape. We’re loving the classic bridal styling and the timeless calligraphy by The Lovely Scribe. The result is a beautiful elopement that doesn’t forget there’s a chill in the air, but is filled with a warm palette that evoking hot apple cider and pumpkin pie and it’s all captured beautifully by Schon Photography.

Michelle Landreau, of Morning Light Photography, often documents big southern weddings “filled with folks with even bigger hearts and lots of gorgeous details.” We all love a big bash, but Michelle began to wonder what it would look like if all the warmth and sentiments of those large gatherings were encapsulated in a small, intimate affair. Cue this gorgeous shoot at Cheekwood Garden, a collaboration of top-notch professionals with art design by Lauren Ledbetter, coordination by Linley Stokes, late summer florals by Vintage Florals and beautiful calligraphy stationery by Spurlé Gul Studio. It’s true romance in the garden and we’re thrilled that Morning Light captured it all in her signature fine-art style.

From the photographer: Working with graphic designer, Lauren Ledbetter, and a team of wedding experts brought a unique and fresh approach to this emotive concept. Every detail worked together to create the perfect tension between timeless South and easy modern. Cheekwood Estate and Gardens played host to our shoot, providing a classic and lush backdrop.

Forgoing the double-digit wedding party, our couple assisted each other in getting ready, a tender take on a First Look, and followed with perfectly-lit portraits on the grounds. Their reception table designed by Lauren Ledbetter and 12th Table elegantly displayed loose floral arrangements anchored in brass and accented by clean, white place settings and chairs.

A favorite detail came from Spurlé Gul Studios: organic calligraphy scribed on handmade paper. No wedding is complete without cake and champagne, and this was no exception! Tessa Pinner provided a chai cake with berry filling and frosted in painterly vanilla buttercream that echoes the optimism of a blue sky.

Have you found the perfect wedding shoe yet? We totally know it can be a challenge, so we get super excited when we see new, inspiring options. We’re loving Bella Belle’s Enchanted collection and this stunning editorial shoot at Chateau Cocomar they sent over to us. Not only are the shoes gorg, but the dreamy styling by wedding guru Joy Proctor Design is so perfect for our European-inspired brides. The chaise lounge floral installation Bows and Arrows is crazy-amazing and the gowns and accessories are fab. We know you’ll be into it all—and, seriously, who wouldn’t be with these incredible images by Kurt Boomer.
