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

We have Cynthia Martyn Fine Events to thank for all the dreamy inspiration in today’s soft and romantic editorial at Harding Waterfront Estate. The neutral palette is gorgeous for any season—we’re especially loving the way it’s applied in the lush florals by Sweet Woodruff and layers of tabletop enhancements and textures. Plume Calligraphy invitations and a stunning Saint Isabel Bridal gown add refinement while an antique hot air balloon basket adorned with colorful balloons adds a touch of whimsy. Grey Collective member Corina V. Photography captured it all in her signature film style and the images are sure to delight!

The inspiration for this shoot designed by Spell Events was derived directly from the whimsy of the lush surrounding of the venue Tiny Boxwoods in Houston, Texas. The gardens are filled with charm and ambience and the team wanted to match that whimsey with the style of the editorial details. Bringing on floral-magic-maker Maxit Flower Design was a must. The abundant florals are romantic, graceful and filled with unexpected details like figs and seasonal fruits. Silk & Willow‘s moody linens are the perfect accent to the colors and warm feels from Maxit’s arrangements, while A Fine Flourish added a timeless touch with calligraphy. We’re loving all the rentals, but the farm table that was built for the shot by the design team is definitely a show piece. If romance and whimsy are what you’re looking for—this one has it all and every, single gorgeous detail is captured in these beautiful images by Awake Photography.

Moody, soft tones and deep, rich textures come together to create an incredibly stunning vibe in this gorgeous inspiration shoot planned and designed by Kaleb Norman James. We’re basically obsessing over Every. Single. Detail.  The florals also by Kaleb Norman James, are amazing—a striking mixture of deep garden roses and pale Italian ranunculus and flowering branches. Bespoke Strokes created a multi-toned calligraphy invitation suite with plenty of romance that perfectly introduces Hotel Ballard, the Seattle venue.  And finally, the jewel-encrusted, and caped Jenny Packham gown is vintage, glam and totally current all at once. It’s perfect for the seasonally-transitional style of the shoot and all it’s inspiring details as captured to perfection in these film images by Sarah Carpenter Photography.

Rustic but most definitely elegant, this London shoot had an Italian-inspired theme, with olive leaves and lace in abundance. “A Curation of Light” was a workshop led by photographer Cecelina Tornberg and captured here by Liz Baker Photography. Shot at The River Rooms in central London, a light-filled wedding venue where floor to ceiling windows overlook the River Thames at Blackfriars Bridge, a truly verdant Italian garden installation was created byCrimson Blue Design. This Italian theme was extended to the table decor and bouquet, and the stunning wedding cakes from Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium were iced with lace to reflect the Morgan Davies Bridal gown. Simplicity and beauty were the order of the day, with plenty of achievable inspiration here for any couple.

Known as the “Jewel of the Desert”, The Arizona Biltmore has been the magical location for weddings for the past 85 years. Every nook of this stunning resort showcases art, history, and beauty and this inspiration wedding shoot showcases the glamour of this stunning oasis.

The ceremony is set in the front courtyard of the resort to showcase the Frank Lloyd Wright architecture and stunning towers. Carte Blanche Design created luxurious florals and pompous grass pieces that framed the couple so beautifully while the soft flower tones added so much romance.

Dinner tables draped with luxurious linens from La Tavola Fine Linen and overflowed with beautiful florals, fresh fruits and wines – delicious food and decadent desserts! Textures and metals were mixed to combine both masculine and feminine touches that perfectly fit the Arizona Biltmore Gold Room.

The bride wore a gorgeous gown with an architectural applique by dress designer, Madison James. This paired perfectly with the rich velvet tux by The Black Tux on her groom.

At the end of the night, when it was time for a nightcap and a little piano playing, the bride changed in to the most beautiful farewell gown in black and blush! Paired with a leather jacket, it was a beyond stylish way to depart this magical evening.
