These gorgeous images from Lucy Cuneo were taken at Charleston’s Middleton Place, which is home to America’s oldest landscaped gardens – how fabulous!







A bit from Rebecca Rose Events:

Nestled just outside of Charleston, South Carolina, this historic landmark site is so beautifully preserved and curated that something blooms year-round. It is full to the brim with beauty and quintessential southern charm. Inspired by the grounds and gardens, with this shoot the creative team imagined a summer garden wedding celebration that is as strikingly simple in its beauty as it is cheerful and welcoming – both hallmarks of classic southern hospitality. In the 1700’s, Henry Middleton championed geometry and symmetry in planning the layout of the garden. They crafted our details with a like-minded approach, using clean and simple lines paired with colorful organic floral details.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said “earth laughs in flowers.” Today’s irresistible floral feature from Mariel Hannah and Poppy Design Co. is proof that Emerson had it right. Everything about this shoot is pure happiness. The jewel tones are mesmerizing and the final arrangement is lighthearted and spectacular. Go ahead. Enjoy some of earth’s laughter.

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.




  Loving this arrangement? (really, though, how could you not?!) Here’s a list of the florals Poppy Design Co. utilized in this shoot. Bring them in to your florist at your initial meeting! / Pink Piano Roses / Twilight Zone Roses / Berries ‘n Cream Roses / Bearded Iris / Blue Delphinium / Muscari / Clematis / Bleeding Heart / Sweet Pea

Jennie and Zach celebrated their marriage with a gorgeous wedding day at the historic Bingham House in Texas. The couple sought the help of close friends, and fabulous stylists, at Blooming House Collective, for all their event styling—and, wow, was it ever beautiful! The florals are beyond spectacular, from the signage wreath, to the head pieces to the striking bouquet. And we love the underlying romance in every stunning image captured by Cassie Loree, who happens to be another friend of the couple. How talented are Jennie and Zach’s friends?!

What made the wedding special and unique?

Our October wedding celebration was special to us because it was actually a follow up to a more intimate ceremony we had in April. We were able to use our close friends at Blooming House Collective for all our styling, the title theme “I Love You, I Do” came from a song written by a close friend of the brides, Maggie Koerner, photography by another close friend, Cassie Loree Photography. Having it in the evening at the Bingham House set the perfect backdrop for the atmosphere we were trying to accomplish. This really was a celebration for all our friends and family!








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

I first became aware of Berta Bridal through searches on Pinterest, but quickly realized how hard it would be to actually get a dress, let alone just see one in person. The nearest store to try one on was NYC or Boston and that wasn’t happening. In perfect timing, I found out they were doing trunk shows in Texas and I was able to talk myself into an already booked show at Bridal Boutique Lewisville. The dream dress fit in one try. No alterations needed – so I knew for sure it was the one. So they sent off the order to be hand made and I would get it just a few weeks before the actual wedding date – cutting it super close.











What were some touches added to make it personal?

We tried to keep the whole ceremony very personal. First of all it was super low key – less than 100 guests – very close friends and family. Everything from start to finish was done through the same company (BHC) who did our invitations and also our event styling and all calligraphy (pics) . We were married by our friend and church pastor. In one of the sitting areas we were able to use some of my parents old radios that my dad had restored and scattered family photos around. Our 18 month daughter was a flower girl and also made her way up the stairs to join us for the sand pour. And finally for our sand pouring and first dance we had our close friends sing and play rather than a DJ. We also made sure every guest had a personalized name tag (BHC) to go home with.




What was the most memorable part of the day?

The entire day was a happy blur (even more than I thought it would be) but there were a few points where we were finally able to slow down for a moment. The first time was our first dance. We had our friend Taylor Phelan sing “All Of Me” by John Legend and that was when Zach and I were finally able to relax and feel everything happening around us. What an incredible day it had been so far! The next time was at the very end. We were picked up by a horse and carriage in front of Bingham house and I think we both had the biggest smiles and tears in our eyes as we were driven off and were able to look back at all of our friends and family who made all of this so special.



Tell us how you met and became engaged.

We met in Shreveport while I was recording an album at Blade Studios but it wasn’t until a few weeks later on the back of Dave Matthews tour bus driving to SXSW that we actually talked. Soon after that we moved back to Dallas and had a daughter named Stella. We had talked about getting married, but didn’t get serious about it until he proposed at our Valentine’s Day dinner the next year.

You guys! This workshop is breathtaking. We are loving the crazy-gorgeous palette of blues that Kruse & Viera Events put together for Natalie Franke & Krista Jone’s Bayside Workshop. That french blue making it’s way trough all of the styling elements is a ticket straight to our hearts. Not to mention the English Garden setting—SO. BEAUTIFUL. Make sure to check out the escort card display—it’s painterly and perfect. In case it’s not obvious yet, we’re smitten with this one and thrilled to be sharing Natalie Franke’s lovely images with you.

You know that effortlessly cool girl? She’s both laid-back and elegant at the same time? Yep—that’s definitely Britta, whose wedding to Ty is a total extension of her relaxed, gorgeous vibe. Britta and Ty became engaged in the south of France. So amazing, right?! Naturally, they went with a “french antique” theme which they incorporated into a day filled with meaningful touches. From the head table candlesticks, to the bride’s veil, each wedding detail has a story and Alexandra Steele captured it all.  We love how Alexandra’s film photography adds to that effortless, antique elegance of Britta and Ty’s big day.

What made the wedding special and unique?

We wanted to get married in a place that was meaningful and true to us. We couldn’t think of a more perfect place than Ty’s best friend’s parents’ house that he pretty much grew up in. Their Iowa estate was so charming and surrounded by the most beautiful trees and even a pond! We also made sure our wedding was full of personal touches to make it our own. Our “head table” was Ty’s parents’ first dining table after they got married, our head table candlesticks were Ty’s grandmother’s and my veil was Ty’s mother’s – just to name a few. I’m an antique dealer, so it was important to me that we incorporated antique pieces that were a part of our family’s personal collection. I was also lucky that Ty let me pretty much take the reins and plan the entire wedding. It was a labor of love, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way. We not only designed our own wedding invitations, but printed and cut every single one! We got great joy from knowing that every touch was hand done and curated by us. Most importantly, we wanted every guest to get a sense of “us” through all the special personal touches.





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

It’s a funny story about the hunt for my wedding dress, actually. I initially wanted a black wedding dress because I didn’t want to look like every other bride. I’d scoured every bridal magazine and wedding dress show, and I just didn’t think a traditional dress it was for me. After telling Ty my vision was for the dress, he politely suggested I get a “fitted ivory” dress. I then realized that you should probably look like the bride on your wedding day. I luckily found Le Soie Bridal and found the perfect dress for our vintage theme.





What was the most memorable part of the day?

The most memorable part was probably me having a Freudian slip during our vows and saying, I promise to “control” you, instead of “console”. That was a good laugh. And of course, the best man speech. Ty has twin older brothers and their speech was priceless. They started by rolling up to the dance floor in a four-wheeler while Thin Lizzy’s song “Jail Break” played. Then they proceeded to “apologize” for all the things they did to Ty growing up. One of them being, tying him to a pole in his underwear and then leaving him. Everyone was falling off their chairs laughing, including us. They then ended their speech with a role play of how Ty and I met (acting as Ty and myself) that was unforgettable. We’ve watched their speech many times since the wedding and it still makes us laugh until it hurts.






Tell us how you met and became engaged.

Ty and I met while I was managing the vintage furniture store in Santa Monica in 2009. He had Yelped furniture stores and accidentally wandered in not knowing it was a girlie furniture store. He then feigned interest in a bookshelf we had for about two weeks, as it gave him an excuse to come in and see me. When I finally told him I couldn’t hold the shelf anymore, he came in and asked me out. He later admitted buying a bookshelf the evening we met from an office store for $40. We now own that special vintage bookshelf, as it was too meaningful to let go.

We got engaged in the south of France (Aix-en-Provence) after being there for a film festival that Ty was featured in. I had no idea he was planning to propose while we were away, which is strange, because I had even picked out my 1920’s engagement ring about eight months before. After leaving the film festival, (and he won!) we made a plan to spend a few days in a beautiful chateau in Aix. Just before we arrived, we were stopped at a light and two guys on scooter drove up to our car and quickly jumped off and tried to open our back door in an attempt to take our luggage. Thankfully, our doors were locked so nothing was taken – most importantly the ring in Ty’s backpack! Once we got to the Chateau we wandered through the gardens and came across this lavender field and that’s where he proposed. It was absolutely perfect and unexpected. We then decided on a “French Antique” wedding theme to incorporate our engagement into the wedding.
