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

Inspired by the magic of sitting on a patio of a charming cafe in Paris, sipping coffee, Jessica Hoang of Bisous Events collaborated with an incredibly gifted team together to design and create this stunning styled shoot. Within the rustic brick walls of The Jam Factory, and the muted tones of the blush and neutral florals exquisitely designed by Mum’s Garden, you can’t help but be inspired by the enchantment of a wedding in France. In these gorgeous images you will see Jessica’s genius vision come to life, and luckily Lénaïc Sanz was there to capture every amazing detail.

Coffee always brings to mind so many wonderful memories. The aroma. The conversations. The meetings. The dates. The taste. The energy. The escape.

For this styled shoot produced by Toronto wedding planner and creative director, Jessica Hoang of Bisous Events, it was inspired by the one word “cafe” that Parisian photographer, Lenaic Sanz, had sent her for inspiration.

Nothing is more Parisian than the idea of a cup of coffee on the patio of a Paris cafe. The location was not only on top of a cafe but was inspired by the colors of coffee seen in the bricks and tones of the editorial. Our bride, Sophie, (played by model, Tanya) exudes that confidence of an urban girl with bold makeup by Ford Beauty while embodying the carefree nature of a small town country girl in these flowing gowns (Sash and Bustle). She gets ready for her big day by styling her hair (by Bridal Hair Collective) while spending most of the morning in her custom robe ByCatalfo.

The wedding is under way and it is beautiful decorated with lush flowers by Mum’s Garden, including a climbing arbor for the ceremony and lush table arrangements. It’s an intimate wedding with vintage pieces such as the amber stemware, bronze cutlery, and brass candle sticks. The custom stationery by Paper Mache Co. set the tone for the sophisticated affair.

Guests woke up to the aroma of coffee in the air at home and ended their dinner with a shot of espresso to continue the night dancing.

The creatives that came together to design this gorgeous inspiration shoot wanted to “combine two different worlds that rarely touch – multiple locations that are both near and far.” White Lace Events & Design described “the flowing picture as California Coastal meets the romantic and historic travels of an opulent European garden.” Isari Flower Studio fashioned the flowing vines, topiaries, and deeply colorful bougainvillea to help create the European aesthetic on the shore of the Pacific. And is there anything more romantic than riding off into the sunset together in a gondola? We are so thankful that all the amazing details were captured in these stunning images by Kristin La Voie.

Soft sand, eclectic shells, seagulls flying, and waves riding the ocean shore — another beautiful day on the coast of San Diego, California. Upon the sand, a setup of artistic and opulent creations came alive with the salty breeze and sweet touches of the sun rays throughout the rich velvet, celestial cake, and dip-dyed fabric. It wasn’t something typical that one would see on their daily walk on the beach, but it spoke a rich and romantic story.

The flowing vines, tailored green topiaries, the groomed bougainvillea, and the rich velvet grey chairs gave way to the castles in Europe. The handmade elements of the plates, the crystal glassware delicately laced with rose gold, continued to elevate the feel of old Europe. The dancing fabric, the sea salt runner, and the raw table with an open shell all lent to the beach elements. The ocean, colorful sunset, and the rigid sand experienced a journey that day.

 

The bride floated in the layers of her Reem Acra gown that stunned anyone from afar. Her rich, long brown hair elevated the softness. The gentle movement upon the gondola and the shoreline with her husband close by her side. He wore a navy tux, with details that enticed the designs of their setting at the Loews Coronado Resort. He strolled comfortably by her side on the beach, and you could see the frames of life happening and being instilled in their memories. The cuddling on the gondola as if they were on the canals in Venice, Italy, kissing under the bougainvillea arch, and sitting in the sand enjoying the views of the coast. The bride and groom had joined the two worlds of Europe and California into their future as husband and wife—living their dreams.

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’re swooning over this amazing indoor wedding inspiration captured by photographer and host Rachel Solomon, and planning, styling and florals by Amber Reverie. The natural light in The Loft Studio Lehi is the perfect setting to highlight the natural hues of gently aging silver, and deep color palette of the hellebore, tinted ranunculus, sweet pea, lilac and juniper that were used in this shoot. Kelsey Malie Calligraphy created the most gorgeous invitations; simple, elegant, timeless; evidence that your stationery can be one of the key elements in the collective beauty of the whole picture.

Influenced by the natural patina of antique silver, this indoor wedding design was curated using elements that manifest the organic beauty that special objects develop over time. As metals age, they take on an iridescent quality with tones of sepia, purple and subtle teal. This palette was reflected in the deep pigments of the flowers. Tender spring blooms like hellebore, tinted ranunculus and sweet pea, and fragrant lilac were paired with sculptural branches and rugged juniper.

 

 

Bathed in subdued window light, we kept the design elements surrounding our real couple few and significant, allowing their love and natural chemistry to shine through. The bride was draped in a billowing silk shift, adorned simply with a striking brown diamond ring. Together, they nestled comfortably into a natural nook, created with clusters of juniper and foraged bits.

 

 

Heirloom elements, including classical wax seals on handmade paper, spools of softest silk, a homemade pavlova wedding cake and an antique wedding crown of tiny waxed flowers, further communicated the depth of their commitment.

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!
