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

The blue watercolor walls of the Ampersea, a waterfront venue in Baltimore, inspired the modern, textural vibes of this inspiration shoot planned and style by Moore & Co. Events. Organic, gathered florals and ceremony arrangements by Steelcut Flower Company add soft texture to the contemporary elements in white, grey and black accents.  Cheer Up Letterpress created the clean, letterpress stationery and the sleek tailoring of the Modern Trousseau gown feels totally fresh. Jen S Photography was behind the lens capturing all the details and we’re exited to share the images with you today!

Hidden in the heart of London lies a piece of historical romance—Home House, an elegant venue where celebrations and intimate moments have been captured since 1773. This gorgeous editorial planned and styled by Elmo Paper Stories and captured by Julie Michaelsen Photography celebrates the opulent, the intensity and the romance of the renaissance era seen here through the eyes of a 2018 bride and groom. The team, including florist Jo Flowers, cake designer Mimolo Designs, and atelier Morgan Davies Bridal were inspired by the contradictions of an old love in a young couple, the ancient venue in a modern city, and most of all by a piece of history where time stands still in a world of fast paced modernity.

The draping, ghostly quality of the Spanish moss at River Oaks Charleston was the inspiration behind this stunning workshop hosted by Michael and Carina Photography.  East Made Event Company led the creative team in crafting details in a deep, rich, autumn color palette and romantic garden style that accentuates the richness of the grounds of the venue. Highlights include old-world stationery design by Maurelle Calligraphy and Design, a show-stopping bouquet and floral chandelier by  La Fleur du Jour and a delicate Alexandra Grecco gown. Lucky for us, The Ganeys were behind the lens capturing all the late-summer/early fall inspiration in these lovely film photographs.

The team behind this Cali Coastal inspiration shoot led by Kingsley & Co. Event was inspired by the natural colors of the coast and shore. Keeping the details of this elopement true to the characteristic of the rocky and sandy landscape, they coupled a natural, soft palette with romantic touches and a few vintage, timeless pieces to blend the old and the new. Plenty of Petals incorporated a palette of soft, sunset tones and beautiful calligraphy touches are by Pirouette Paper Company. A scene-stealing veil with lace appliques adds drama and Jordan Galindo Photography captured it’s movement along with all the lovely details in these ethereal images.

We LOVE Bella Belle bridal shoes and the launch of their latest collection does not disappoint. Fittingly titled Euphoria, the new line—designed once again by Joy Proctor—evokes the essence of happiness with abundant soft textures, floral embroidery and speckles of sequins. To compliment the collection, the powerhouse team including Tulipina and  Gabrielle Hurwitz, styled this stunning editorial filled with warm, happy colors in lush floral arrangements, dreamy gowns and textures of the old-world setting at Jardin De Buis. The inspiration is ideal for the feminine romance of modern brides and Laura Gordon Photography‘s signature soft and ethereal captures bring the Euphoria flair to every frame.

The aura of the lookbook is inspired by the euphoric nature of the shoe collection itself. It is intended to serve an edgy and fashion-forward interpretation on a bridal look. Joy Proctor once again lent her impeccable design skills and taste in styling and directing the vision of the pictorial. Laura Gordon’s signature soft and ethereal captures brought the Euphoria flair to every frame. Under Gabrielle Hurwitz’s authoritative fashion styling, ethereal gowns from Le Grebenau, Liz Martinez, and Hayley Paige provided airiness to complement the shoe collection. The inimitable Kiana Underwood of Tulipina created lush floral arrangements and centerpieces that became key backdrops throughout the lookbook. Garden roses, fern, carnation, orchid, and foraged foliage in an array of hues and textures were crafted into delightful components for the lookbook by the floral artist. Thoughtful details such as floral eye lids, a magical floral head piece, and statement-making accessories were used throughout every scene to further enhance the Euphoria theme. Last but not least, the scenic orangerie and greenhouses of Jardin De Buis provided a slice of quaint South of France, captured beautifully on film by Josh Gooden.

The result is truly a representation of the Bella Belle’s celebratory romantic aesthetics and its quest to be a pioneer in redefining bridal shoes.
