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

The inspiration for this stunning shoot was to draw from this 1800’s Italianate estate, with its red brick and unique design, to create a wedding inspiration filled with bold pops of color. From the softness of the hand lettered invitations by Calligraphy by Carole and floral accents on the shoes, combined with the bright flowers against a textured linen, to the delicate detail on the Claire Pettibone dress, the team felt it captured the essence of a small wedding ceremony on a family estate, filled with meaning and bright color. Each and every detail is captured beautifully by our friends at Live View Studios is the images below.

Bright, cheery fall wedding inspiration takes center stage in this editorial shoot from photographer Kylie Mones and florist AvaFlora. The palette is a blend of dusty mauve, flecks of gold and apricot hues with a pop of blue in the taper candles. The cake, by Sugar Lane Cake Shop, was hand-painted to accent the dip die invitation set by I Can Do That Design, complete with gold foil edging and wax seals. The Maidstone venue offered the perfect backdrop—a private garden, furnished with classic Swedish furniture, croquet, boules and a ping pong table—all for the couple who wants a happy, fresh take on a fall soiree.

Wow, where to start with this gorgeous Mediterranean shoot?! The stunning images were taken by Nicole Lapierre Photography while she was attending the Boheme Workshop in British Columbia, hosted by Vasia Han Photography. The beautifully rustic venue, ​Gods Mountain Estate needed little embellishment, but White Event Studio transformed the space into a dream destination wedding with ​Celsia Floral adding the elegant floral design in the tablescapes and a bridal bouquet to die for. We’re sure you’ll love it as much as we do.

From Nicole LaPierre: The inspiration for this collection was to bring a destination feel to a bride’s local area and keeping things elegant, yet attainable. Destination weddings can often seem logistically daunting for many couples, but it is nice to find unique venues close to home, that have a look of another place, and where you can host beautiful, family style Al Fresco dinners for your reception. This will keep your guests engaged and intrigued by the beauty.

From Leslie Dawn Events:

So many of us have memories of visiting a farm with the smell of hot baked apple pie drifting  through the countryside and fresh eggs on the table as the early morning sun broke through the clouds. There was something so comforting and also romantic in the early hours of the day.

We wanted to design a wedding concept reminiscent of those early mornings on the farm. We chose a muted palette of neutrals and brought in fresh baked goods. We wanted to convey a sophisticated and soft farmhouse style with slight rustic elements that created a charming and romantic backdrop.

Inspiration from Payton (Promise Event Planners): This shoot was inspired by my parents’ wedding china. My parents were married in Texas in 1990. While everyone was registering for classic white and blue or floral china, my parents decided on this modern, onyx black hexagon set. They were way ahead of their time and passed along their love of black to me.

From the china, we built a dark colored and modern mood for the shoot. We went for blacks, deep emerald greens, with pops of white, and assorted metals. I have a love for combining contrasting design styles. We combined modern clean lines and shapes in a natural and organic space at Cottonwood Glen.

Through the medium of film, Tamara Gruner Photography effortlessly captured each image while taking her time to get the perfect shot. Her eye and use of natural light and fine art style was a compliment to the modern styling that blended in contrasting harmony.

House of Yonder created a textured bouquet of dark lush greenery and fall foliage with soft touches of blush garden roses and white ranunculus. The spilling organic centerpiece gracefully complimented the mid-century modern style table, wood slat chairs, and wooden tapered candle holders. The black champagne flutes were complimented by the green crystal goblets. They also provided the lounge setting staged in the middle of a field.

 

The stationery suite by Stefanie Hofmeister was comprised of a black origami inspired folded invitation. The opening of the invite revealed a modern script and organic polka dotted pattern. The envelopes were a contrasting black with white calligraphy. Stefanie added in touches of glimmering copper to tie in the metallic touches.

The models have a remarkable story of their own. The couple met on a styled bridal shoot years ago. While pretending to be a couple in love and displaying their chemistry, they fell for each other during their shoot. The rest is history. They are now married with two beautiful children. Their real-life love shined through in the photos more than we could have imagined. The groom wore a classic black suite with a polka dotted black bow tie. The bride adorned a two-piece gown from Emma & Grace Bridal. The modern constructed bodice met the flowy bottom to create a sexy yet ethereal bridal look.

Using my parent’s actual china in the shoot was something that was so personal and incredibly special. This shoot was a breathtaking combination of opposites that came together to create something so beautiful and seamless.
