Southern Magnolia Wedding

One afternoon, in search of Southern wedding inspiration, we delightfully stumbled upon this fairytale wedding and couldn’t help but squeal with delight. This unbelievable wedding, planned to perfection by the Social Office, literally took our breath away!

First things first, Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art in Nashville, Tennessee is kind of unreal. Its gorgeous grounds, lush with greenery and bursting with color, set a magical backdrop for the wedding. From there, Music City Tents & Events created a most unreal tent for the reception. With its delicate draping and sparkling chandeliers, you were transported to a gilded dream!

We love the mix of tables, a combination of family-style longs broken up with round tables dressed in our Gold Gardenia linen, all tied together with a rustic wooden chair.

 

And the flowers, oh my! The Tulip Tree’s gorgeous arrangements in shades of coral and ivory added a perfect touch of color to the tables. But the theme strung throughout the wedding? Magnolias! These Southern flowers, holding a special meaning for the couple, were used first in the paper suite, designed by Tenn Hens Design, later to create an incredible statement inside the tent and all the way to the end of the night, making an appearance as the couple drove off into the night.

Lucky for us, Kristy Hogan shot this unbelievable wedding in all of its Southern charm and sparkling glory for us to dream about for many seasons to come!

Diamonds or Tanzanite? – A Conversation with Très Chic Southern Weddings & Events!

Whitney Carillon, the owner and lead planner of Très Chic Southern Weddings & Events has a couple of tricks up her sleeve. The Orlando-based planner originally hails from Atlanta, Georgia where she grew up dancing ballet and getting early exposure to performing for a captivated crowd. Couple that with her time working at Tiffany & Co. (i.e. a leader in luxury customer service) and her innate Southern charm and you’ve got one pretty awesome event planner on your hands! We sat down with Whitney to pick her brain on the magic behind her events (spoiler alert: Mickey Mouse is a friend of hers) and why guest experience should always be top of mind. Read on to find out more…

Nuage Designs: First and foremost, let’s get this one out of the way, how do you get your hair to be so long and beautifully shiny?

Tres Chic Southern Weddings & Events: Well I would say, my hair has definitely become a bit of a trademark of mine. Honestly I just don’t use a lot of product. I have always had longer hair for as long as I can remember but it has been Rapunzel like over the past couple of years and it has just kind of stuck!

ND: Now that we have that covered, tell us about your story. We know you have a dance background, how did you go from that to event planning?

TCSWE: I began dancing at the age of two and had many incredible opportunities and experiences through dance over the years. I performed in many stage productions at beautiful theatres surrounded by incredible sets and costumes. I danced with the Atlanta Ballet and trained over the summers with American Ballet Theatre and New York City Ballet. Every event I produce, I think of as a stage production and no matter what happens, the show must go on.

ND: How does your time working at Tiffany & Co. inform how you work with your clients at TCSWE?

TCSWE: Tiffany & Co. is a true leader in customer service and creating an experience for their clients. From my time in leadership at Tiffany, I am inspired to always create a luxury experience for my clients and their guests. Tiffany & Co is built on brand recognition, quality, strength in originality and lasting excellence; I strive to do the same in my business but with the events I create.

ND: Originally from Atlanta, you certainly have a built-in Southern Hospitality. How does that play into your client experience?

TCSWE: Yes, I am definitely a City Southern girl. I grew up learning the finest ways of treating one another and how to not only present yourself with grace, but also how to put on one heck of a dinner party! True Southern Hospitality is being very welcoming, kind and gracious. I try to emulate this with my events, especially throughout the weekend festivities. We want our couples to create a warm and welcoming environment for their guests, which can start with a personalized note and gift in their hotel room at check in. We can carry this through all the way to the end with a send-off gift at the Sunday brunch. Even a wedding with more than 300 guests can feel more intimate when you bring in small personalized touches along the way.

ND: “Southern” is also in your company’s name – what was the impetus behind including that?

TCSWE: Growing up my parents had multiple businesses that included the word “Southern” in the name. I lost both of my parents in my 20s and as I was forming my business I decided as a way to honor their memory and their successes, I would also include “Southern” in my business name. I changed things around a bit by adding “Très Chic” to represent my then new French family for my husband’s side.

ND: Your designs are always so dreamy, where does your inspiration come from?

TCSWE: I am inspired by both current and past styles. I like to design modern styles in a timeless manner. I am inspired by everything around me honestly, from nature to theatrical sets, galleries, movies, interior designs and more. I feel that inspiration is all around us if we just open our eyes.

ND: How does (or doesn’t) Orlando and Disney World play into inspiration for your events?

TCSWE: For our events in and around Orlando, we find that many of the guests are coming from out of town so we bring a little fun and whimsy into the welcome bags at times. We also do many events at The Four Seasons Resort Orlando, which happens to be on Disney property, so we are able to bring special guests from Walt Disney World to our weddings sometimes. It can be really fun to have a black tie, super fashionable wedding and all of a sudden Mickey and Minnie come in and dance with your guests and are there to cut your cake. It’s something you just can’t do anywhere else, and we are able to bring some magic and pixie dust to our luxury weddings.

ND: How is the collaboration process with your clients? Where does the basis for their wedding begin?

TCSWE: Typically, my clients will have some general colors in mind that they like for their wedding. From there we talk about overall styles they like and then we create a mood board for them with linen choices, floral options, inspiration design. We also talk about how the music and the menu will be intertwined to create a cohesive environment. My performing background looks at every event as a stage production.

ND: We know you always put the “experience” at top of mind. How do you keep that the focus of the event in every detail?

TCSWE: We look at the experience of the event in the eyes of every guest in attendance. We look at what they will see from the moment they first get the invitation in the mail to set the overall tone of the event. Some people don’t view the invitations as being as important, but they truly are and set the expectation for your wedding! The next point of contact is in the welcome they receive at the hotel whether in the form of an itinerary or custom gift. The food we choose on the menu and the music at each stage of the night should go with the style of the event. We love bringing unexpected surprises in as well when appropriate. Every single detail is thoroughly thought out so your guests walk away thinking it was an incredible party and they had the time of their lives!

ND: Do you ever find it difficult to push clients away from “trends” and towards a more unique design?

TCSWE: In the past few years we have had many clients who wanted either an all-white wedding or the blush, gold and ivory wedding. Both of these are beautiful and elegant, but they are also very popular. We like to work with our clients to create a unique take on these styles to make them more them rather than just the same wedding you have seen done a million times.

ND: What is your advice to couples that do come to you with a “trendy” design in mind?

TCSWE: My best advice is to remember that this is your wedding and you want to always be able to look back on your pictures in 10, 20, 30 plus years and think how special the day was. You don’t want to look back and say “What was I thinking?” I always try to find ways to personalize a wedding by bringing in details that represent the couple whether it is something with where they are from, favorite foods, flowers, colors…you name it!

ND: What are some of TCSWE’s trademark styles?

TCSWE: I would have to say some of our trademark styles are an elegant and sophisticated glam. We also love to do a mix of table types with long kings tables and round tables and always encourage lounge furniture around the dance floor so those who may not be dancing fools still have a place close to the excitement!

ND: If you could plan/design a party for anyone in the world, who would that be?

TCSWE: I love my clients so it’s an honor to be a part of all of their events! But, I would have to say I would love to plan a party for the Royal family….there may be another wedding coming up in the near future with Harry and Meghan.

ND: What is your favorite thing about designing weddings?

TCSWE: I love being a part of one of the most important days in a couple’s life and helping them start their happily ever after. It is such a joy and honor to get to share in the moments leading up to the wedding and to create a personalized event for them to share with their guests! To get to see the excitement and love shared by all of their close friends and family as they see the ceremony unfold and onto the revealing of the reception is pure magic!

ND: We hear you’re a Graduate Gemologist…what’s your absolute favorite gemstone and why?

TCSWE: Oh it is so hard to pick just one! I of course love my Diamonds, but for colored gemstones a beautiful Tanzanite that is a royal blue with just a hint of violet is definitely one of my favorites! Tanzanite is only found in Tanzania and I secretly would love to go on an adventure to climb Mt Kilimanjaro and possibly find a beautiful rough Tanzanite just waiting to be discovered. Tiffany & Co is actually responsible for naming Tanzanite.

ND: Last one, because we have to pick your brain while we have you, what trends do you see for the spring wedding season? Any color palettes or themes that you’re dying to use?

TCSWE: I am seeing some color come back, but definitely still staying with the trend of greenery and white weddings. I would love to play with more colors as we go through the year. We have some weddings coming up where our brides are excited to use rich deep colors or some bright. So I think we are about to see a change for sure! We have some events coming up this year that have some personalized details and color that we are super excited for! Very Town and Country style design.

ND: Any other thoughts that you’d like to share with us?

TCSWE: This year we are continuing to expand on more Destination Weddings and going to more amazing locations with our couples. We are also doing some fun social events at the Four Seasons Orlando and are looking to expand this segment throughout the year to other locations!

Lovely Gulf Coast Wedding

South Florida, we love you, you’re our home and we would never put anyone else before you…BUT, there is something to be said about North Florida beaches. Nestled in the panhandle, their white sugar-fine sand and turquoise waves looking out over the Gulf of Mexico make these beaches an enviable wedding destination. So, when Kellie McGehee of Florals by the Sea sent us these Panama Beach nuptials with us, we had to share them with you!

The day started with a beachside ceremony where the couple said “I do” under a delicate driftwood canopy decorated with pretty little blooms from Florals by the Sea. The bride’s bouquet, a bursting assortment of lavender and light pink flowers coordinated perfectly with the bridesmaid’s lilac dresses.

With the sun setting over the Gulf Coast, everyone headed over to the intimate reception at the Grand Pointe Pavilion of Inlet Beach. A family style table was set with glowing candlelight to welcome the newlyweds and their guests for dinner. At each seat, the couple’s monogram was water colored and delicately placed atop ivory satin napkins. Our favorite surprise was the pink flamingo peeking out at the top of their customized menu cards – such a cute souvenir from Florida!

The event’s color palette, warm ivories mixed with soft pastel shades of lavender and blush, had us head over heels! We love how the texture of the Ivory Rose linen from our Preston Bailey collection played against the smooth flower vases and pearlized chargers. Looking down the long table there were so many lovely little details to catch our eye!

Seeing this beautiful wedding on a perfectly clear night catching a cool ocean breeze, there’s no wondering why they call it the Emerald Coast.

Rustic meets Modern in Atlanta

We’re so torn when it comes to planning our dream wedding – honestly, how do you even get started? We love string lights and exposed wood tables but also acrylic chairs and marble chargers…can this rustic and modern design exist? We weren’t sure it was possible…until we saw this unbelievable wedding from Lila Wilson Weddings!

In the heart of Atlanta, Summerour Studio set a fairytale backdrop with its ivy-covered brick walls and cobblestone-clad courtyard. And of course, just the perfect touch of string lights shimmering above the couple during their “I Do.”

Inside the reception, guests were welcomed to take a seat at an exposed wood table or a sparkling sequin round arrangement. We love this combination of rustic tables with the modern Natural Mini Koi sequin linen, adding just the right touch of sparkle to the night. Whichever your choice, they both featured lush green florals from Bloomin’ Bouquets and perfectly printed paperwork from the bride’s own stationery company, Foglio Press.

The wedding palette, a dreamy combination of grey, taupe and the loveliest shade of blue just bridged together the rustic meets modern design. From the “Hey Y’all” on the wedding invitation to the minimal floating candles, every detail made sure the night was imbued with southern hospitality in a modern light.

Sowing Clover Photography caught this magical night to share with us proving that you can really have it all on your wedding night!

The Perfect Neutrals

We are always on the search for that perfect neutral. Be it a light shade of blush or a golden shade of champagne, there’s the right neutral tone for every event. So when Jenny Corts, of Jenny Richter Special Events, shared this Country Music Hall of Fame wedding with us, we were so in love with the combination of neutral hues that came together like magic!

The wedding was set in a palette of warm champagne tones, with high back sofas lining the room, tables dressed with the Sand Web alternating with the Goldmine Faux Dupioni and sunset streaming in at just the perfect moment – captured perfectly by Kristyn Hogan. A simply elegant cake, from Dessert Designs by Leland, sat a top the Blush Scalla, adding a tinge of blush to the night.

Our favorite thing about a netural palette is how it gives flowers the space to shine! Branches Event Design & Florals brought in pretty pops of color in the centerpieces, from bright corals to lush greens, to brighten up the room.

From the perfect palette to the dreamy draping, this event really just came together beautifully. And we’re not sure if someone planned on that golden hour light streaming in, but we definitely want that one at our wedding too!

We Believe in Pink

There’s just something about the color pink, in all of its many shades that we will always love. From light hues of blush to deep shades of fuchsia, it just magical to us!

So what happens when Karen Tran takes lots of lovely pink things, such as vintage glassware, sequin overlays and many, many roses and puts them all together at The Santaluz Club? Basically it’s the prettiest event that you have ever seen! The Youngrens captured this magical night, pink glow and all, so scroll through and find out why we’re seeing the world in a whole new –pink- light after this!

Valentine’s Day Inspiration

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner we’re seeing pretty pink hearts and lovely red roses everywhere we look. And while we’re big fans of these traditional tokens of love, Gretchen Culver, of Rocket Science Weddings, kind of gotten us thinking about Valentine’s Day in a different way with this styled shoot, inspired by Francis Bacon’s painting, “1946.”

Right off the bat we’re drawn in by this unique venue. Machine Shop, in Minneapolis, sets the tone for this styled shoot with its unique original details and modern loft feel. Couple that with the incredible ceremony backdrop, designed to fit in seamlessly with the existing elements and we’re obsessed. Avant Décor draped sheer pink fabric so beautifully (note: from a crane!) to contrast against a tiered hanging installation. Also let’s not miss the candle installation; an assortment of tapers and pillar candles in shades of deep red and black anchored the design at the foot of the fabric. This was truly a dreamy place for these gorgeous grooms to say, “I do.”

The tabletop was just incredible! Gretchen mixed unique textures, from the black leather linen to the pink chiffon draped chair backs, giving the design an elevated feel. The centerpiece, an amazing arrangement of red flowers crafted by Rocket Science Weddings, is a true statement piece sitting on Event Lab’s tall stand.

Gretchen Berry’s unique menu design laid a top of The Festive Frog’s pink glass plates and black & white Monique Lhuillier plates from Ultimate Events made for a gorgeous stack – almost too pretty to eat on!

Winter Wanderlust

As the temperatures dip and there’s snow on the horizon, we’re going to just ignore it and pretend everything is fine. In fact, we’ll just close our eyes and take a little trip to…Santorini. And why not? Let’s wanderlust the afternoon away with Sabrina Seymore Events to guide us there!

Nuage Designs - Santorini 2

Here we are at the Rocabella Resort in unbelievable Santorini, Greece. Everywhere we look its white washed buildings, romantically narrow alleyways and cliffside views for days. Certainly no complaints from us!

Nuage Designs - Santorini 3

The bride and groom say “I Do” while looking out across the water with the sun starting to set behind them. As the guests make their way to their tables, the magical sunset casts warm shades of pink and orange on the Sultry Beige Faux Dupioni linens with the gold décor shimmering with the last rays of sunshine. The flowers, by Fabio Zardi, are perfect shades of mauve and peach with bright little bursts of greenery. This is true destination wedding paradise!

Nuage Designs - Santorini 4

While we were getting ready to party under the Grecian sky, the bride and groom sauntered away without us noticing. They snuck off with Blue Spark Photography who captured some of the most surreal images of the two together. I mean, honestly, the bride and groom set against the clear blue sky with her veil flowing in the wind? Words cannot express the power of that photo!

Nuage Designs - Santorini 5

With winter seemingly not going anywhere and Santorini on the mind, you might excuse us a moment while we book the next flight outta here!

Blue Koi – NYE Party Inspiration

Oooh, how we love New Year’s Eve! The night holds such promise and it always feels like there’s magic in the air. Our favorite thing about NYE is ringing it in with good friends, delicious snacks and a little bit of bubbly. So what’s the only thing that could top an already fantastic party on the 31 st ? A New Year’s Eve wedding!

Nuage Designs New Year Inspiration2

Cue Mikkel Paige of Mikkel Paige Photography and Leah Weinberg of Color Pop Events with the perfect NYE wedding inspiration. Shot at the new trendy Williamsburg, Brooklyn venue, Dobbins St., this Jackson Pollock-inspired shoot is just incredible.

Nuage Designs New Year Inspiration3

The team pulled in the venue’s black, white and Yves Klein blue color palette to drive the design for the Bliss & Bone paper goods, Hawkins New York dinner plates and Nine Cakes wedding cake – all of which were the perfect blend of elegance and coolness.

Nuage Designs New Year Inspiration4

We really love how the table scape came together, contrasting our royal and silver sequin linen, the Blue Koi, with modern black & white accents and pretty pink bouquets from Blade Floral and Event Designs. Modern wedding design at it’s finest!

Nuage Designs New Year Inspiration5

And of course the bride, in her gorgeous Hayley Paige gown, was stunning! The soft layers and edgy design make for the perfect gown for a modern bride. So, what do you get when you combine a brilliant design plus the Manhattan skyline in the company of your most beloved? Sounds like a perfect night to us!

Winter Wedding in the Berkshires

Nestled right in the Berkshires, just a stroll away from the heart of Lenox, Massachusetts , is the lovely Kemble Inn. A modern haven housed in an 1881 historic mansion, this little inn is the perfect place for an intimate wedding. And with a setting like this, who else but Emily Starr Alfano from mStarr Design to make it a magical night!

This lovely wedding took our breaths away when we saw it. Starting with the bride…talk about a lady in red! This gorgeous bride rocked a burgundy Modern Trousseau gown that really just stole the show. Paired with her handsome groom, in his navy blue suit, this couple wowed together.

Berkshires2

Stepping into the Kemble Inn, the mood was set just right by the stylings of mStarr Design. With a palette of black, taupe and deep red, the look was equal parts romantic as it was provocative. We love how Emily mixed in burlap linens with sequins, making it an elegant yet casual evening really playing off of the Inn’s look with the Berkshires vibe. Our very favorite thing however was the fur and feather details. Pairing metal café chairs with taupe throws really brought everything together.

Berkshires3

The lush florals, with blooms ranging in color from blush pink to deep wine red, were placed amongst an assortment of sage and evergreen foliage. We love how Carolyn Valenti Flowers tied in the bride’s dress colors in the arrangements throughout the ceremony and reception, from atop of the mantle, to the marble torso on the grand piano and the detailed antique standing vases.

Captured in all of it’s beauty by Lovebird Studio, this wedding really got to us. Looking through the pictures we felt like the couple’s aesthetic and personality really shined throughout the event. An intimate wedding, a quirky inn and a cozy refined design, this is one of our winter faves!

Utah Dreaming

Have you been to Utah lately? Between the Great Salt Lake, the sweeping canyons and the mysteries abound in the desert, there’s so much to discover in this Southwestern state. Needless to say, we’ve had Utah on the mind lately, so when this breathtaking Park City styled shoot came our way, we could barely contain ourselves!

Nuage Designs 2

Tracie Domino Events takes us to the St. Regis Deer Valley, a picture perfect venue offering luxury and modernity set against spectacular nature views. Imagine being able to step into the mountains, just a few feet away from where you said your vows. Even in this gorgeous Reem Acra gown it’s worth the adventure.

Nuage Designs 3

Designing with a delicate blush palette, MMD Events created a lovely tablescape that blends glamorous and rustic styles perfectly. The centerpiece, a pretty array of light pink, coral and sage hues set atop of driftwood, is just lovely. We love how the metallics, in rose gold and copper tones, create a soft yet glitzy contrast to the wooden chargers and oak chairs.

Nuage Designs 4

Captured on film by Lexia Frank photography, this was a truly magical shoot. You can see how vivid the colors, how warm the sun and how dreamy of a destination Utah is to say “I do!”

Fall in the Lowndes Garden

Before the temps dip too low, let’s go back to Charleston! We cannot get enough of how gorgeous weddings are at Lowndes Grove Plantation and today’s wedding is no exception.

Nuage Designs2

Under a clear-top tent, this Boutique Planning wedding had us feeling like we were right in the gardens the whole evening. Even more so, the incredible arrangements from Branch Design Studio really made us feel like we were surrounded by flowers! I mean, let’s just look at the stunning floral chandelier, captured so perfectly by Paige Winn photo for us to obsess over.

Nuage Designs3

Imbuing the evening with the bride’s Italian heritage, olive branches were arranged on tabletops to resemble runners atop linen tablecloths. Keeping things in a very Tuscan-style, we love the use of simple white linen with light blush accents scattered throughout. Coupled with brushed gold accents, this rustic style reception was reached a perfect level of laid-back elegance.

This couple shared special parts of their heritages and tied them in with their personal aesthetic to create one amazing celebration of love. So, tie on your Chucks and let’s hit the dance floor to celebrate!
