They had us at “mermaid.” Creative directors Olea & Fig Studio describe their inspiration as “seaside mermaid at the beautiful, serene and untamed Ocean Beach in San Francisco” and we’re enthralled.  The team implemented a color palette composed of a range of soft, rustic hues with a rich and mystic accent of blue, embodying the elegance and fantasy of the deep sea. Organic textures and elemants in the tablescape, unruly florals by Delphinium Floral Design, watercolor spills on the stationery by Refine Studio and flowing gracefulness in the bridal styling all add the romantic tale of the sea. Janine Licare Photography  was enlisted to capture the modern mermaid and her whimsical fete and produced these dreamy images.

Caitlin Krebs Events was inspired by old-meets-new, with a goal of bringing a bit of late nineteenth century antiquity to modern times. Specifically the team aimed to channel Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice and we are completely on board with it. Liriodendron Mansion‘s gorgeous architecture and garden-like atmosphere created the perfect backdrop for a scene that could be easily mistaken for the English countryside. Sandy hues and pink tones in the fabulous florals by Steelcut Flower Co. compliment the lush greenery. Texture is added with the the vintage Gossamer gown and handmade paper suite by Shotgunning for Love Letters and velvet The Mrs. Box. Topping it all off was Megan Harris Photography behind the lens working her magic with these stunning fine art images.

Photographer Erin Milnik‘s singular inspiration behind this shoot was her love for poppies and the bright and cheerful vibe they bring to weddings. Keeping details simple and focusing on the bloom, Madilyn Broxham Design incorporated poppies into the whimsical invitation suite along with added pops of orange using vintage stamps. Susan, with Sweet Lilacs Studio created a bouquet made up of entirely all Icelandic poppies in an array of bold oranges, magentas, and soft pinks. Kumquats decorate garland draped across the bar of an adorable caravan— a joyful little detail adding to the mood of the shoot and capturing the warm feelings of summer seen here in Erin Milnik ‘s beautiful images.
