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

We’re absolutely loving the relaxed, beautiful vibe of this elopement inspiration shoot from Gaby J Photography and Green Orchid Events. The subtle pastel color palette is perfect for a late summer or fall wedding and the organic, airy details are perfectly elegant. City Blossoms Floral takes the look to the next level with arrangements overflowing with gorgeous blooms and She Paperie‘s watercolor and calligraphy stationery adds a timeless appeal. Ultimately, though, we’re mesmerized by all the beautiful moments and details captured by Gaby J Photography at Pahrump Valley Winery.

Romantic, preppy, classic, simple all describe the wedding day of Iris and Joshua at the beautiful, historic Allan House in downtown Austin, Texas. The couple enlisted Joyful Details to plan an intimate affair that focused on the celebration, friends and family most of whom traveled great distances to be there for their big day. We have Exquisite Petals to thank for the punchy pink floral eye candy that contrasted beautifully with the bold blue stripes in the preppy event stationery by Remember November Shop. The genius behind the lens was Stephanie Hunter Photography and we know you’ll love the way she captured Iris and Josh’s lovely celebration.

form the photographer: They chose to serve local brews and they incorporated both Southwest and Asian flavors in their menu to incorporate both the bride & groom’s cultural backgrounds. For their wedding favors, they had fun pie pops in the shape of Texas Longhorns (Bride) and Arkansas Razorbacks (Groom) to represent their alma maters. For their guest book, they had guests pose for Polaroid selfies and then hang them on a frame that they handmade themselves with clothespins.

Their altar was streamlined and simple with the stone ledge that encircled them, adorned with floral arrangements & candles. However, my personal favorite design elements from their wedding were the incredible flowers from Exquisite Petals, the classically designed signage from Remember November and the bride’s understated yet gorgeous gown from Pronovias. At the end of the relaxed evening, the newlyweds were ushered through a sparkler getaway to their “Just Married” pedicab where they waved farewell to their loved ones while their friends and family cheered them on! Kristi Treadwell with Joyful Details did an outstanding job coordinating all of our fabulous vendors.

You guys! We are completely smitten with Jenna and Jeff’s Ironstone Vineyards wedding. The color palette of peach, blush, cherry red and merlot is delightful against the lush garden greens of the venue. Flourish Designs wowed with incredible bouquets and arrangements and Erin Milnik captured all the details and the joy of Jenna and Jeff’s big day.

What made the wedding special and unique?

There are two things that really stand out for us: the location and our wonderful family and friends.

Jeff and I chose Ironstone Vineyards in Murphys, California because it is a place meaningful to us. Our families both have cabins in the area and we have so many fond memories. Also Ironstone Vineyards offered all that we wanted in a wedding venue. It’s lush and expansive grounds offered a beautiful landscape that inspired our vision for the wedding. Secondly, it was important that our wedding personified our relationships with family and friends. From finding special ways to incorporate our family to hosting a weekend of events, there was so much love in the air.

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

Jeff and I tried to find ways to incorporate our family in a meaningful way. One of my most favorite details was the table assignment suitcase. We filled my grandmother’s vintage suitcase with beautiful flowers and guest table cards, named after our favorite travel destinations. On the inside back of the suitcase we placed old photos of our loved ones. Family instantly recognized the suitcase and thought of my grandmother. It was so special!

Other notable details include my uncle’s vintage green Packard, which was absolutely spectacular. It added a romantic and vintage touch to the wedding. Also, the brilliantly crafted ceremony officiated by Jeff’s uncle and my stepmother’s watercolor paintings on the guest tables created an event truly personal to us.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

There are too many to chose from! One of my favorite memories was the drive down to the ceremony site in the backseat of my uncle’s Packard. It was a surreal moment driving through the tree arbor to see the beautiful ceremony site, all of our guests and Jeff at the altar. I still remember the butterflies in my stomach and the strong embrace of my mother’s hand.

Also, the moments Jeff and I had alone were really special. The first look was the moment when the anxiety of wedding planning and anticipation went away. It was just us, and we both instantly felt at ease. Also, dinner together at the sweetheart table, overlooking the reception was so memorable. We were able to take in the fruits of our planning and all of the family and friends there to support us.

Collective members HoneyFitz Events and Heidi Ryder Photography are the powerhouse duo behind Emily and Nick’s stunning LA wedding. The couple were married at the Saint Thomas the Apostle in Hollywood followed by a celebration at the Lombardi House. They enlisted dear friend, and talented florist, Lark Farnum Design to create ethereal tablescapes full of garden roses and greenery and a striking long-stem bouquet, filled with blush pink and cream-colored peonies carried by Emily who wowed in her lace-sleeved Claire Pettibone and fresh braided updo. We know you’ll love the casually-elegant details as much as we do!

What made the wedding special and unique?

Getting married in the church I grew up going to all my life, St. Thomas the Apostle, in Hollywood. My husband’s grandmother also happened to have gotten married there (which we found out only after we got engaged) and his mother attended preschool there. So there were many family connections to the church.

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

My gown was Claire Pettibone, an LA based designer. One morning shortly after we got engaged, I happened to be online and saw that her flagship store on Beverly Blvd. was having their annual 3-day summer trunk show. I knew I would wear a long-sleeve gown, as my mother had in her 1977 wedding, and fell in love with the intricate lace details on the sleeves, train, and back of the dress–very romantic, ethereal, and bohemian–just the vibe I was going for!

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

Having our friends be an integral part of the wedding. My college roommate, Jena Carpenter, is an opera singer, and sang Ave Maria during our church ceremony. One of Nick’s groomsmen, Matt Glaser, who owns the bar Wolf & Crane in Los Angeles, crafted our signature Bride & Groom’s cocktails. He named the drinks after our dogs–Lucille and Bogart. Also, one of our oldest friends happens to be an amazing florist– Lark Farnum. She created the most ethereal tablescapes full of garden roses and greenery, as well as my bouquet, filled with blush pink and cream-colored peonies.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

Dancing the night away. I hardly ever left the dance floor for hours, and that’s where I got to interact with most of my guests in the most relaxed, fun way. Also, both my father and husband’s father gave terrific toasts.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

On the Saturday evening we got engaged, we had just settled in for what I thought would be an evening of Netflix & takeout. Instead, Nick suggested we go out to dinner, and that I pick the place. So I chose my favorite, a cozy little Italian restaurant in Los Feliz. After dinner, Nick pulled out the ring– I was so surprised. When we got back to our apartment, a group of our friends were waiting for us– Nick had chilled many bottles of champagne, unbeknownst to me, that day!

The creative team, spearheaded by Inna Olimpiyuk Events, aimed to gorgeousness of a Florida garden with all its palms and tropical flowers, but also focus on the intimacy of a romantic elopement.  The goal was to show how even the smallest of weddings can still be gorgeous and romantic. The Gardens of First Baptist Church of Boca Grande are incredibly lush and beautiful so the styling was kept simple with a sweetheart table under the palms, soft florals, a textured gown and a smartly dressed groom. A.J. Dunlap Photography was the girl behind the lens capturing all the details and magic of Florida foliage.
