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

The grandeur of Hatley Castle and the richness of film photography provided the inspiration for this shoot produced by Shannon Elizabeth Photography. Ornate architecture and the lush greens surrounding the property set the scene while  a meandering peacock simply adds to the ambiance. To add a modern feel, the team focused on simplicity in the details—white garden florals by Thorn & Thistle Flowers, black calligraphy on textured neutral paper by Carli Anna, and an airy Truvelle Bridal gown. It’s a palace wedding for the modern bride and it’s all captured beautifully by Shannon Elizabeth Photography.

Bright and airy in the barn—this styled shoot embodies Texas inspiration for the modern bride. Elegant details like gold calligraphy by Custom Crafted Calligraphy and white florals by Bramble and Bee, pair beautifully with modern touches like the blue marbled dishware from Vestige Event Rentals at The Farmhouse—a whitewashed barn venue. The icing on the cake is definitely the ruffled cake—an updated take on rustic by Buttercup Houston. The fine art film photography of divya pande captures all the details (and the beautiful light) with a timeless quality that we love so dearly.

Get ready green thumb brides—this one is for you! Nature was kept at the forefront of this inspiration shoot from planner and florist The Days Design. The scene at The Old Art Building incorporated fallen branches, forgotten twigs and foraged evergreen vines. Springtime botanicals filled the space with minimalistic touches on the tabletop and a living art installation serving as the backdrop to the hand painted cake by Coco Renee Specialty Baking. The team enlisted the eye of Cory Weber Photography to capture the details and we’re happy to share the images with you today!

Stunning florals by Evergreen Flower Co are gathered, unruly and organic, classic calligraphy in the dusty blue stationery by Plume Calligraphy is timeless and details like the delicate headpiece by Sheeta Design add vintage style.

This styled shoot is like if our dream patio design was translated into a wedding. The tropical gardens, Spanish tile and Mediterranean-style terracotta mansion at Pinewood Estate at Bok Tower create a stunning backdrop to the romantic garden details designed by Melanie Paige EventsAndi Mejia combines delicate watercolor and gold foil details in beautiful paper pieces while Fern and Curl Designs utilized coral, yellow and barely-there pink in gathered and graphic arrangements. A blue and gold leaf cake by  Sweet Flours plays off the details of the location and The Ganeys were on hand to capture it all in these lovely images.
