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

Conceptualized by Osase of Shake Up That Makeup, this editorial was brought to life through the combined vision of Pam Kriangkum Photography and Brianne Gabrielle Cakes to celebrate the idea that the female character can be as equally strong and empowering as she is soft and delicate. Surrounded by the mountains at Fairmont Banff Springs—the contrast of the vast, unforgiving lines of the Rockies, the serenity and enchantment of a fresh snowfall—the team created details that evoke ethereal, textural details like the Alexandra Grecco gown and calligraphy by Sophia Loves Letters, alongside vibrant florals by Always Sunny Design, warm metallic tablescape accents and a stunning blue marbled cake. The details bring strength, warmth and grace to the wild, winter landscape and it’s all captured beautifully in these images by Pam Kriangkum Photography.

Inspired by Claude Monet,Blooming Wed and a team of incredible creatives set out to create a design that epitomized the mood of the impressionist painter’s Houses of Parliament. In his response to the poetry of dusk and mist, Monet used the colors grey and dusty blue, conveying the peacefulness of the late afternoon in London. The team used the same palette to elicit a similarly calm and serene sensibility. Purple, pink, orange and yellow hues of the sunset add an element of vibrancy to the painting and to the floral design by Elevn Fleur, artful food and drinks by Betty Zlatchin Catering. Airy calligraphy by JK Design is showcased in a textural stationery suite and Knead and Nourish created a scene-stealing, painterly cake. The overall mood is incredibly dreamy and Cat’s Lens Photography captured it all in these lovely images.

Photographer Kristen Hendricks Photography brings us a palette of wintery pastels in this inspiration shoot set at Silver Oaks Chateau.

We are completely holi-dazzled by Caroline and Ben’s Auburn, Alabama wedding. Invision Events planned the day with help from florist The Flower Store and stationer Linen & Leaf. The deep maroon palette is the perfect twist on traditional holiday colors and keeps things totally timeless with a multi-seasonal appeal. The details are stunning—a lush ceremony arch, letterpress calligraphy, wood-mounted custom signage, embroidered cocktail napkins, suspended greenery structures and flowers everywhere—and the best part is that it was all set against the backdrop of the bride’s family cabin at Parker Hill. The family property is also a venue and Carline and Ben’s wedding was the first to be celebrated there. Lucky for us, the couple enlisted the skills of our friend Davy Whitener Photography to capture their day and the images are stunning.

What made the wedding special and unique? 

The wedding was unique to me because it was freezing and raining most of the day! We had to do a last minute rain tent for ceremony, but it ended up all working out and was beautiful. We were all close together and huddled up! And our pictures turned out beautiful!

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

My mom and I found the Rivini gown in Atlanta at Lori’s Bridals where “Say Yes to the Dress” is filmed. I had looked at several other places, but when I tried this one on it was that feeling of “THIS IS IT!” It fit me like a glove so I didn’t need to do many alterations and the veil really sold me on the dress as well.

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

We did a lot of personalization like most people do from the napkins to the cups, but I think the biggest thing was having the wedding at our family cabin. My dad renovated it for the wedding so none of our guests had ever been there! It was our own style from the actual venue down to the décor!

What was the most memorable part of the day?

The vows were the most memorable part of the day for me! Our longtime family friend married us and my aunt read a poem that my grandmother – who had passed the year before – had written years ago about getting married on a rainy day. It was so surreal that it was actually raining on our wedding day! I felt like my grandmother was with us at the ceremony.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

We met in Destin when I was on a girls trip in 2015. I vacationed in Destin a lot and had a friend that was living there. We ran into him and he introduced us! Ben deployed to South America a week later for six months. We kept in touch and when he got back to the states we immediately started dating. The engagement was very low key! We were living in Destin and on the way to dinner he said needed to get something from my parents beach condo that he had left there. We went out on the balcony and there were flowers and he got on one knee and asked! It was just us – very personal and sweet! And overlooking the ocean which is a big part of our life!

Robyn Skinner Photography led the team in creating this editorial styled shoot at Harvest Hollow Venue and Farm to inspire the modern bride with a touch of Southern charm. The creatives curated mid-century modern elements with fine art details to create a tangible, timeless, and relatable romance. The color palette was selected from an old renaissance painting: maroon, eucalyptus, and antique ivory hues was brought to life by Old Frond Floral Co. in the stunning winter-perfection bouquet and large, organic arrangements. Soft, relaxed textures and natural elements like the barn wood table and velvet sofa added to the elegant scene in a cozy, farm-style venue and the entire look fell so on-point in this winter season.
