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

When Victorian meets modern, romantic meets edgy, and a natural desert setting becomes an elegant venue–the incredible talent behind today’s moody desert  inspiration mixed unexpected styles together to create a unique look. Planner BTS Event Management and florist 1209 Creative used TONS of florals with a focus on orchids, black ranunculus, dahlias and large garden roses for an edgy-elegance that we love. Check out all the details in these beautiful images captured by Andrea Elizabeth Photography.

Quail Ranch Events—with its expansive grounds filled with lemon, orange and avocado trees—was the ideal setting for this citrus-themed inspiration shoot. Pairing bright, citrusy colors in the florals by Peony & Plum, actual citrus fruit from the Ranch with metallic golds and grays in the form of marble accents and tabletop decor completed the fresh, summery, outdoor vibe that A Stunning Affair envisioned. All the vibrance in the sun-kissed details is captured in these gorgeous photos by  Birds of a Feather.

The inspiration in this romantic and colorful shoot came from planner Brianne McMullan Events love of the Magnolia bloom. The southern-influenced shoot at The Cator Woolford Gardens includes gorgeous florals by Shean Strong  like the Magnolia ceremony installation and romantic bouquets and centerpieces in a bold palette. With stationery by Empress Stationery, a Ginger Spice Bakery cake and calligraphy by Anna Sayers Calligraphy, the overall look is bright garden party with old European undertones and it’s all captured beautifully by Shelby Rae Photographs .

Planner Tara Nicole Weddings and Events describes the design direction for this breathtaking inspiration shoot as “whimsical, painterly feeling – lightness anchored with a touch of dark.” The team, including florist Isibeal Studio, titled the shoot ‘The Fine Art Wedding’ in reference to their careful curation of each element used, from hand-dyed silk table runners and hand-rolled and lettered name cards, to jewel-like spring blooms, and the delicate beauty of film photography. The result is a fairy-tale editorial that accentuates fanciful and romantic details including stationery by Jupiter and Juno, calligraphy by Manayunk Calligraphy and cakes by Classic Cakes and it’s all captured beautifully by Cory + Jackie in these film photographs.
