We’re loving this collab! Fabulous jewelry designer, Gorjana, teamed up with Green Wedding Shoes create a new line of bridal jewelry. We love the romantic mood of the collection and this wildly beautiful shoot photographed by Stephanie Williams of This Modern RomanceMore details about the collaboration from the designers below.

From Gorjana: We have always had a bridal customer and I’ve wanted to expand to that market for some time now, so a collaboration with Jen from Green Wedding Shoes was a perfect fit to tap into that market. The bridal market is a natural fit for the brand especially when it comes to bridesmaids jewelry. Our pieces have always made great bridesmaids gifts because they are so versatile, unique, and classic so they can be worn after the big day.

For the Green Wedding Shoes Collection, I wanted to create pieces that would take bridal and bridesmaid jewelry to the next level. I love the delicate nature of the pieces in this collection. They truly make for beautiful accents and will make any bride or bridesmaid feel unique on the big day. I was really excited about working with Green Wedding Shoes on this collaboration and getting to make Jen’s vision a reality. You can shop the Green Wedding Shoes x gorjana Collection here.

A bit about the collection from Jen Campbell the founder + editor of Green Wedding Shoes: For Green Wedding Shoes’ first collaboration with Gorjana, I set out to create a unique collection of jewelry for modern brides, bohemian brides, and their bridesmaids that allowed the mixing and matching of pieces to create just the right look for each wedding party. I also wanted pieces that would easily translate into daily wear after the big day, a huge bonus for anyone who’s been in a wedding!

As we kicked off the design process, I drew my inspiration for the collection from nature and textures. I just love the beautiful lace details of a wedding gown, the raw edges of druzy stones, organic-leaf elements, and tiny, delicate details with lots of layers. Then I worked with Gorjana to pair these timeless elements with some of my current loves for this season: rose gold, druzy stones, unique rings, and jewelry headpieces.

Gasp! Swoon. Sigh…We’re basically speechless over this one. Lavender and Rose, a.k.a. event-planner-extraordinaire, created an absolutely breathtaking wedding day for Liz and Jonathan in the South of France. The florals are heavenly, the bride is timelessly elegant and the scenery will take your breath away. We can’t even find the words to describe this level of gorg. Luckily, these incredibly stunning images by the uber-talented Marianne Taylor Photography say it all.classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_04classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_02classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_03classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_05classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_06classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_08classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_09classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_10classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_11classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_13classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_14classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_15classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_16classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_19classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_20classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_21classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_23classic-romantic-wedding-french-decor_24

What made the wedding special and unique?

We really wanted a destination wedding. I was in love with all things French – I had lived there in the past, we both spoke the language, he proposed and so it was easy, South of France it would be. I googled ‘wedding planners in the South of France’ and came across Lavender and Rose. Even from the first glance of their website, I knew they would be the right choice. Thankfully, Jennifer said they would be available to plan our wedding for late September and off we went. Jennifer was excellent. Her vision, style, professionalism and attention to detail was impeccable and at all stages of the planning process, she kept me calm and assured. I knew she had it under control (even when I didn’t) and most importantly, she understood my vision for the day. That’s key.

After a lot of issues with finding the right church, with the help of some family friends, we secured a beautiful church in Bar-sur-Loup, a tiny village just north of Mougins/Cannes. The church itself was perfect but the views were spectacular, in the mountains and overlooking a large impasse. It definitely had that wow factor. Our church ceremony music was performed by Hitched Wedding Music. Their voices are simply breathtaking and even during rehearsals, they amazed our bridal party.

What were some touches added to make it personal?

We had welcome bags hand delivered by Jennifer and her team. They included a tiny bottle of champagne, locally made soap and jam from Grasse and heel protectors (as the Chateau had stony paths). They also had all the details for pick up times, locations etc so everyone knew exactly where they had to be and when. Catering was by Parfum et Saveurs – the food was simply delicious, served to guests under silver lids to keep the food warm as there was quite a walk from the kitchen to marquee.

We had a live acoustic walking band, the Gypsy Queens, who played in between courses and speeches – they went to our guests tables and asked them for their requests. They really got everyone in the party mood. It was such a good idea to have them play in between courses as I often felt at previous weddings, that part can sometimes drag. After the cake cutting (our cake was by Wedding Cakes by Pamela) and dessert, the band led us up to another staged area with a grand piano and festoon lights where Jon serenaded me – a complete surprise. It was so romantic and a moment I will treasure. Jon and I had our first dance to a live performance of the song My Cherie Amour (classic) with all our guests waving sparklers. The Gypsy Queens led everyone to the inside dance area for the final part of the day, the dancing. Our DJ was Yannick Le Roux who was excellent. I think Jennifer had to literally move people off the dance floor at 3am! Yannick really listened to what we wanted and I would strongly recommend him. Another great idea was to have the Photo Booth by Alban Pichon in the same area as the dancing so that when people got a bit tired from dancing, they could act silly with French themed props and take away their pictures.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

Jon and I travelled in style to our reception in a vintage Aston Martin Lagonda. It was so vintage we had a wind up roof! I squeezed me and my dress into the car and there was just enough room for my new hubby! The guests followed behind in organised transport beeping their horns!

Our reception was held at the dreamy Franco-Italian Chateau Diter located just outside of Grasse. Filled with statues, fountains, ponds, flowers and the most spectacular renovated chateau, it was the perfect location for us. We had two large marquees set up (just in case) and boy were we glad of that. For what seemed like a lifetime (I was told later it was 20mins), we had a torrential downpour, just as we arrived at the venue. Jennifer dealt with it in true professional style and ushered everyone to champagne and canapés under the marquee. We had stunning music again from Hitched Wedding Music during the cocktail with Rob playing on a grand white piano and Rosie singing 1950s classics to jazz favourites. The French caricaturists and live cooking stations by caterer Parfum et Saveurs kept guests entertained.

The rain was worth it – after the clouds parted, we had this heavenly ethereal light, something I have never witnessed before. It was magical and made for some amazing photographs from our photographer, Marianne Taylor and videographer Clark and Palmer Wedding Films (both UK based) . They captured the detail, the light, the mood and all the tiny details which whizz past you on the day.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

I met Jonathan at a friend’s birthday party in a steak house in East London. He wasn’t my usual type I have to say but I was intrigued when he ordered the largest meat platter I had ever seen. He has now admitted it was all an attempt to get my attention but I just remember asking myself ‘Who is that hungry Chinese guy and how on earth will he finish all that meat?’ Well it worked – the following weeks were full of old school romance, fun filled dates like ping pong, swing dancing and restaurant hopping. It was the most fun I’d had in a long time! After a year and a half, he got down on one knee in true romantic fashion at a beautiful Chateau in a small village outside of Lyon. And so the French story began.

From Poppy Design Co.: In this series, I used a ton of color. Jewel tones are really happy, and they really work well together. There isn’t much rule when working with such an abundance choice in tones, just go for what you love. For this series, we found a lot of inspiration from simply walking the market and choosing healthy, seasonal blooms in rich, deep tones.

Happy Fourth of July!! Maybe you’re celebrating at the lake and enjoying picnics, canoeing and some much-needed relaxation? Maybe you’re planning to take in some fireworks at the pier? Either way, this adorable summer engagement shoot from the fabulous A Love Supreme Photography is sure to get you pumped to take in the scenery and enjoy a beautiful summer day with your guy. We’re especially crazy about the super cute styling by Emily Elizabeth Events.

How they met: Nick and I were introduced during a typical summer boating trip out on Sebago Lake. Nick’s college roommate happened to be my long time friend from grade school. In the winter of 2009 Nick asked me to help him navigate the basics of getting a tan, in preparation for his upcoming trip to Mexico. He was crafty in finding a way to spend time with me and it eventually led to him asking me out on our first date.

The proposal: Nick and I take an annual trip to Acadia National Park each summer. We spend 4 days camping, hiking, biking, and enjoying the beauty of Maine summer. It is our first tradition that we created together and one that we look forward to every year. During this particular trip we were looking forward to seeing the sunset on Cadillac Mountain, since the year before we had woken up at 4:00am and rushed to the top to see the sunrise. (It is the first place in the US where you can see the sunrise and the view is undoubtedly worth the early wake up time)! While we were walking up Cadillac Mountain to see the sunset, Nick led me down a secluded path where he found a large boulder you could stand on and see above the treeline to view the entire harbor. He held his hand out for me and hoisted me up onto the rock. It was there that he asked me if I would marry him and spend our lives together. That was certainly the most memorable trip to Acadia we have had, but each year we go back to Cadillac Mountain and look forward to reliving that first sunset.

Calling all vintage-loving brides! We’re excited to share Estate Diamond Jewelry with you today.  Here at GLW, we’re firm believers that your engagement ring should be a reflection of your individual style. This sounds like a lot of pressure, and let’s be honest, there’s a bazillion options out there. However, we’re continually working to find awesome resources to help you (and your oh-so-fabulous guy) select the perfect engagement ring. First, you’ll need to define your taste. And, as we’ve already determined—you love all things vintage which is why you NEED to check out Estate Diamond Jewelry.  They’ve been in the biz of antique and vintage engagement rings for more than 30 years. We’re talking gorgeous, one-of-a-kind Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco engagement rings. Now, there’s plenty of beautiful vintage-inspired designs out there, but there’s something incredible about a true heirloom engagement ring….maybe it’s the story behind it, maybe it’s the breathtaking statement style. Either way, we’re saying GO FOR IT! We’ve rounded up some of our faves below.lady_grey-estate-diamond-jewelry2
