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

For this Little Sahara, UT (Sand Dunes) shoot, the creators / visionaries chose to simulate the Utah desert sunset with soft neutral hues of yellow, blush, orange and red with the florals as a stark contrast in the unadorned desert setting. Ambra from Query Events about the stunning model and her dress: “We paired our dark haired model with the Bainbridge Alexandra Grecco gown with tons of movement and a slit for days.” Query Events skillfully planned, designed, and arranged the florals in this gorgeous shoot, and aren’t we incredibly lucky that Callie Manion Photography was there to capture every perfect detail? We think it’s amazing, and we think you will too.

Inspired by the desert landscape, a team of Texas vendors made the trip to the gorgeous sand dunes of Little Sahara right outside of Salt Lake City. Designer Ambra Costner-Portillo of Query Events used a neutral color story with floral arrangements meant to mimic the sunset – butter yellows, soft oranges, blush and red.

 

Keeping all textures and elements as true to the existing landscape as possible, meant for a story that looks at home together. We knew we wanted a minimalist dress with zero “fuss” to really showcase how gorgeous our native Salt Lake City model is – a true desert girl!

 

 

You can just feel the desert wind in these photos! We love the location and the variation in landscape – everything came together just beautifully!

We think you’ll agree that the vision to combine vivid floral hues with the blue tones of the California beach is a winning combination in this colorful coastal inspiration shoot by Perfect The Event. The floral arbor by Three Petals Floral & Event Design is an absolute show-stopper, and the perfect “altar” for exchanging vows on the beachfront. The historic Ole Hanson Beach Club offers panoramic views of an expansive lawn and the Pacific Ocean’s softly crashing waves. And Lovisa Photo was there to capture every gorgeous detail of this stunning shoot.

This look was inspired by the ocean waves crashing gently along the beach and the beautiful floral that lines the coast. Between the divine blue tones of the water, and the vibrant hues of the flowers, it only made sense to celebrate the two. Having a colorful oceanfront wedding inspiration shoot meant using bright and warm toned florals, and incorporating the water with pops of cool colors in the textiles and smaller details such as our paper goods from Jen Simpson Designs.

Ole Hanson Beach Club was the perfect venue to host this California coastal dream. Since touches of glam were incorporated we needed our bridal gown to be both flowing like the foamy waves, but also have touches of bling to pair well with the details. Casablanca Bridal had the most stunning gown for our bride, and Friar Tux’s tan suit was the perfect compliment.

The design mixes in metals such as our rose gold laser cut items from Happily Ever Etched to contrast against the Spanish villa feel of the venue. Whimsical floral are featured throughout and the white hanging roses from Three Petals are intended to imitate the fluffy clouds over the horizon. Love Cakes took this fluffy feel into one of their layers, and the colors of the floral into a watercolor design for the bottom tier.

This shoot could of not been a success without such a talented team in place. Corin Cruz made our bride glow, and Baker Party Rentals supplied such an array of mixed matched wood tones that everything tied in so well. This day was captured to perfection by the infamous Lovisa Photo and Cloud 9 Cinematography. Inspiration for the oceanfront wedding couples for days!

What’s more lovely than a wedding shoot in Paris? Not much as proven by this gorgeous editorial from our friends over at French Grey Events. Inspired by the idea of a madly-in-love-couple eloping in Paris, the team put together romantic, feminine inspiration including vintage gowns, couture heels, boudoir accessories and stunning florals in orange and yellow adding a modern twist of color. The location at the Maison des Polytechniciens offered both the impressive French interiors we know and love and a beautiful courtyard for portraits. Lucky for us Bonphotage Photography was on hand to capture all the inspiration.

Vicky and Will met for the first time while living abroad, and they bonded over their shared love of reading. As their relationship grew, they continued to make their love of books and travel central components of their life together. So, for their wedding day at Cavallo Point Lodge, designer and planner Linen and Lilac used the couple’s love of reading and travel travel, along with their modern and vibrant, yet unfussy style as the jumping off point for a minimalist aesthetic, acrylic accents, and a colorful peach and ochre color palette. With punchy florals and stationery by Bowerbird Atelier and amazing photography by Sorella Muse, this wedding is such a treat for the eyes and we’re thrilled to share it with you today!

From the planners: Cavallo Point, located in Sausalito near the Golden Gate Bridge, provided the perfect backdrop for this New York-based couple who wanted a wedding with a classic Bay Area feel. We sought to weave the couple’s love story and personal style throughout the wedding in a way that was consistent with the aesthetic of the venue.

 

We conceptualized with floral + stationery vendor, Bowerbird Atelier, a minimalist ceremony design of asymmetrically placed potted plants and branches that served to welcome guests, set the tone of the wedding design, and were later reused to highlight the sweetheart table in the reception space. Vibrant centerpieces with votives were layered on top of neutral linens for the guest tables while the Harper linen from La Tavola added visual interest to accent tables.

Playing off the couple’s love of books, we designed modern acrylic bookmarks that served triple duty as escort cards, guest favors, and adorned with a colorful pom indicating the guests’ meal selection. In lieu of a traditional guest book, we incorporated their love of travel by having guests write notes on cards designed to look like airmail envelopes in their color scheme. Cards were bound together with thick acrylic covers and simple silver rounds, making it easy to store and read through the notes from their loved ones. Vicky and Will’s wedding came together perfectly as a colorful, elegant San Francisco affair. Even though it was March, the sun shone brightly enough for the iconic Golden Gate Bridge not to be shrouded in fog and peek out in the background of their couple portraits!
