A Bohemian Inspired Wedding Shoot With A Touch Of Gold

At heart, we’re really somewhere between being in love with a laid-back bohemian look to the opposite and going for all glitzy and luxe, who can truly decide? Well, when MMD Events put together this styled shoot, a blend of boho cool with the perfect touch of gilded accents, we were beside ourselves! Scroll through to see just how everything came together.

Armature Works Tampa set the tone with their industrial style loft. Exposed brick, beautifully framed windows and endless natural light flooded the room giving it an inviting feel. The tablescape, set with a hanging arrangement of flowers running the length of the table by MMD Events, created a beautiful illusion against the impossibly tall ceilings of the venue.

We love how this table was set! Our Gold Metallic Forest created the canvas for the setting which was highlighted with shades of plum, fuchsia and red. MMD Events combined assorted vintage china with mirrored chargers and Moroccan-inspired colored glassware for a chic look.

The gorgeous hanging florals draped beautifully over the center of the table, hanging above a macrame runner decorated with an eclectic assortment of driftwood, crystals and gold geometric decor. Just look at those votive candles in mercury glass encased by delicate geometric shapes!

Tying everything together was the chair selection, a mix of French-style upholsted pieces from MMD Events’ collection. We adore a mix and match seating look so you can imagine we were over the moon to see high back chairs mixed in with wooden crossback chairs and plush upholstered seating. Bonus points for that luxurious sheepskin throw! Anyone else ready to take a seat at this table?

Fisher Island Wedding in Miami

Let’s be honest, we love nothing more than a Miami party (we might be biased) because where else can you throw outdoor soirees all year round? Since it’s still winter for our Northeast friends, we thought we’d warm their hearts with a stunning wedding straight from Fisher Island!

For starters, Fisher Island is a truly remarkable hidden gem for weddings in Miami. It’s a bit of a trek to get out there but completely worth the adventure! Just look at the backdrop it sets for this wedding. With its limestone floors and just-ornate-enough decor, it strikes the perfect balance of luxury and elegance for a celebration! The sweeping staircase, decorated with sculpture busts, opened up to the escort card table, topped with a blooming arrangement of flowers from Petal Productions.

When you stepped outside, views of the water surrounded guests as they took their place under a beautifully draped tent – which, did we mention had chandeliers sparkling overhead? Oh My! Occasions dressed the tables in our Preston Bailey Collection Champagne Iris and Crystallize Pebbles linens, creating a beautiful effect throughout the space! Pair that look with tall floral arrangements from Raffi and Petal Productions and the room was truly aglow!

As the party kicked off, lounge furniture from Elements and Accents came into view with a lovely assortment of vintage-inspired pieces and white leather decor, a great place for party goers to rest between songs! Lucky for us, Erika Delgado Photo was there all night to capture the fun. You know how it is in Miami, the party never stops!

Romantic Wedding Inspiration at the Biltmore Estate

Another year, another Valentine’s Day, and another fabulous occasion to celebrate love…as if we didn’t do that enough already! We love any excuse to decorate in shades of pink and red and today is the perfect chance to share a beautiful treat with you. Straight from the gorgeous Biltmore Estate, Rebecca Rose Events dreamed up an impossibly romantic styled shoot that landed in the (print!) pages of Southern Weddings V10. Scroll through and prepare to fall hopelessly in love….

So, the Biltmore Estate. Can we take a minute to soak it in? What a spectacular place full of history and character, and a breathtaking backdrop to this styled wedding shoot. Ornate terraces and seemingly never-ending vistas created a magical spot for this couple and perfectly manicured lawns were just the place to catch up with bridesmaids before the big “I Do.”

When it came time to sit down to eat, drink and be merry, a royal table for 14 was set for guests to enjoy. Rebecca Rose Events set the mood with our White Vine Tulle overlay, an embroidered take on lace, paired over a champagne hued base. Adding in a quintessential touch of color, red napkins were folded delicately atop gilded chargers.

We love the florals, designed by Rebecca Rose Events, in a runner style cascading down the table in shades of blush, red, and burgundy with lush greenery all around. Taper candles nestled into gorgeous brass candlesticks from BHLDN popped up at different heights ranging in color from pretty pink to deep aubergine, giving the tablescape an incredibly romantic feel.

There were details galore at this one and lucky for us, Henry Photography captured every single one! From Bella Figura’s invitation suite, with its delicate gold lettering and red accents, to calligraphy by four different creatives, each giving the day their distinctive touch, nothing was overlooked! Even the escort card display, a vintage console decorated with books covered in whimsical patterns in the day’s color palette, was uniquely fitted to the shoot.

But probably our favorite detail was the couple’s vintage getaway car. With a bright red bag packed ready to go, they jetted off into the day with nothing but love in sight. Congratulations!

Winter Wedding Ideas Inspired by Suiting

This one’s for the guys. The guys with their peak lapels and shawl collars, perfectly tied ties and just shined shoes. And the guys with their suits. Oh their suits! We so often overlook what grooms are wearing, assuming all suits and tuxedos are created equal so when we stumbled upon The Black Tux and saw their incredible suit and tuxedo assortment…we were impressed! Their suits come in such a breadth of styles and colors, looking over their selection we wondered, what would a winter wedding look like if inspired by a groom’s suit? Scroll through to see our three favorite color palettes and find out who wore it best…

The elusive midnight tuxedo, a big trend at the moment and we’re all about it as a modern upgrade on your traditional black tux. For the perfect mix we love a midnight tuxedo with a black lapel accent and it pairs perfectly with our Midnight Parker. A geometric patterned linen in just the right color combination. Navy has always been a wedding color palette favorite and we especially love it for winter weddings with a pop of Marsala (we’re big fans of Marsala). If you’re feeling super swanky, maybe don a Marsala-hued smoking jacket to pair with our Wine Velluto linen.

Maybe you’re ditching the cold weather for a tropical wedding in Miami – we can’t blame you – and a more colorful wedding palette. We’re totally feeling shades of olive green, to fit right in with the lush foliage, anchored with black details, to keep it classy. Go all in on the full black tuxedo or swap the jacket for an emerald green and you’ll feel at one with the tropics. As for tabletop, keep it light without losing the elegance. We love the idea of a patterned linen, like our Honeydew Palomino linen, on one table style mixed with a combination of our Apple Metallic Burlap and patterned Black Ink Napkin on the other style. That’s a winter wedding in the tropics!

And if you’re going to a destination spot for your winter wedding perhaps you’ve landed in New Orleans just in time for Mardi Gras! Let’s embrace the location with a palette in traditional shades of plum (and maybe even Ultra Violet). We’re so into a grey suit, it really anchors the look, and creates a great base for a tablescape. If you want to add that Nola flair to your party we like the Preston Bailey Collection Off White Shimmer or the Natural Mini Koi to give it that sparkle! Or really embrace the French Quarter with a fleur-de-lis motif, like our Plum Neiman linen. Of course dress for the occasion, perhaps a head to toe Rose colored suit, a perfect match for our Rose Velluto linen. Laissez les bon temps rouler!

Black and Gold Décor Inspiration for New Years Eve

It’s that time again, the end of the year and preparing to welcome in 2018 with a bang! Last year we were all about bright colors for the celebration, while this year we’re really feeling the gold love. Anchor down those metallics with some luxe black details and we are ready to party!

We worked with Rodri Studio on this lavishly elegant look, full of rich metallic and cascading orchids. The table was set with our Black and Gold Koi linen giving us the perfect base to build this look on. Rodri Studio gave the tablescape a modern feel with square mirrored pedestals topped with minimal arrangements of white flowers, including a centerpiece of cascading white orchids.

Keeping with our gold motif, we added in gilded tabletop accents such as our Clear Charger with Gold Rim and Stone Metallic Faux Dupioni Napkin paired with gold flatware. As for seating, mixing and matching two styles gave the table a fun added dimension! Our Rose Gold Phoenix Chair, an exclusive design, ran down the table with our Gold High Back Wing Chairs anchoring the ends.

Combining a stellar sequin linen with simply chic décor, we think this table is just the place we want to ring in the new year!

A Bright Blue and White Winter Wedding in North Carolina

Blue and White is a quintessential wedding color palette, and one that we’ll never tire of! Whether you’re
going light blue, like this shoot here, or adding in some vibrant reds, like this real wedding, it’s all good in our book. So, when Hart and Co. Events came to us with this navy blue wedding inspiration photoshoot, we were beside ourselves. Scroll through to see it come together beautifully…

Henry Connor Bost House & Farm, in North Carolina, was the most gorgeous location for this shoot. With the feelings of fall in the air and the foliage turning all around, it just feels magical! Moving between the house and the grounds for a small ceremony was the loveliest way to say “I Do!

What about the reception? Well, a pretty intimate table set for 4 found its place under warm streams of
sunshine at just the right moment. Set against our Navy Western linen, blue & white Chinoiserie plates, from Old South Vintage Rentals, popped to life with small gold ornate plated, from VTG VLT, to complement them.

And in the center of the table, a primary-colored arrangement of flowers from Nectar gave the tablescape that bright pop of color. We love how taper candles, in blue and white, ran down the center in varied heights, like a runner.

Of course it wouldn’t be a celebrating without the bubbly! A rustic bar sat on the porch of the house
decorated with spirits and delicious fruit to accompany. Just the place to dine al fresco, which we love to do ourselves! Cheers to that!

Festive Holiday Wedding Inspiration in Fuchsia

From corporate holiday parties to winter weddings, the season of celebration is upon us and we’re so very excited (can you tell we love hosting?)! Everything comes together this time of year in shiny gem colors and vibrant metallic tones and it’s our absolute favorite thing to see. No surprise then that we’re completely obsessed with this Christopher Marcs Design styled shoot, full of hot pinks and purple for us to gush over!

Biltmore Ballrooms in Atlanta played the perfect setting for this brilliant design. The room was lit up in pink- hued up lighting that accented the statuesque columns and crystal chandeliers – a real dream of a venue!

A head table set for 18 was the highlight of the reception, centered in the middle of the action and
surrounded by round guest tables in shades of purple. To accent the head table even more, Christopher
Marcs Design dressed it with our Raspberry Sequin Pattern linen. Combining bold fuchsia and a geometric pattern of sequins, this linen really shines!

We love how the tabletop brought in ombre shades of purple in the florals and bright accents of gold on the tableware. The look was completely refined and brought a ton of fun to the party!

And of course, a sweetheart table fit for royalty graced the stage dressed in our Gold Sequin Chain overlay. The table was brimming with blooms and anchored by high back chairs in ivory and gold. Just the place to celebrate your “I Do’s!” Whether you’re celebrating your winter nuptials this year or working up a fantastic holiday party, this styled shoot should provide plenty of inspiration!

Pastel Inspiration in Pink and White for Winter Weddings

In case you missed it, pastel colors are back! From pretty yellows to light pinks (sometimes made modern with a mix of grey), we’re falling in love with these soft shades all over again. So, when Jacin Fitzgerald dreamed up this incredible styled shoot, full of blush and mint green hues, we were obviously head over heels! Scroll through to explore the full beauty of this one…

Let’s start with the Biltmore Ballrooms. WOW. What a perfect setting in Atlanta for this one (no wonder it landed in Southern Weddings v9)! The classic space set the backdrop for an elegant and refined wedding style, made all the more fun with its mint-green walls and sparkling chandeliers. We love how Sawyer Baird captured the natural light filtering through, giving every moment that magic touch.

Jacin Fitzgerald not only planned and designed this lovely day but she also arranged the gorgeous florals for the shoot. A mix of white and green with tinge of blush, they added just the right touch of greenery.

Setting the tables, one for guests and the other for the sweethearts, Jacin Fitzgerald used our Anita linen – in two ways! Our White Anita for the couple and our Sultry Beige Anita for guests. The two styles played right into the color palette while adding a little sequin sparkle.

From start to finish, this gorgeous styled shoot is the perfect inspiration for that timeless wedding of your dreams!

Fall Wedding Inspiration in New England

Do you dream in the colors of the fall? We do (at least when seasonally appropriate, like here)! And lucky for us, Ivy and Honor does too. Their recent styled shoot, inspired by real family heirlooms, is a gorgeous palette of cornflower blues accented with deep reds and bright copper tones. Get ready to fall in love…

First things first, The Black Horse Inn was the perfect setting for this shoot. Its lovely landscape and ornate detailing could not have been more suited to the concept. We’re in love with the creeping ivy and the wrought iron fence playing backdrop to the couple’s day.

A charming ceremony space, marked by a vintage desk, decorated with a flowing runner and heirloom Bible, and a festive wreath, marked just the spot to exchange eternal vows.

The table was set in a French blue hue, using our Sky Western linen, decorated in contrast with florals, from Le Fleur du Jour, in deep fall colors and delicious sprigs of rosemary. The look was both simple and modern, tying in the vintage feel with delicate rentals from Bella Villa Shop, while maintaining a minimalist sensibility on the calligraphy menu cards, from Lady G Paperie.

And the couple, the groom looking dashing in The Black Tux and the bride looking ethereal in a Wren Bridal gown, wrapped up the loveliest day with a signature whiskey cocktail, cheers!

A Bridesmaids Brunch for the Modern Bride!

The days leading up to your wedding can be as exciting as they are stressful, why not do a little celebrating with your bridal party leading up to the big day? Michelle, from Lemiga Events had just that thought when she put together this fun and chic bridesmaids brunch styled shoot! We were head over heels with the idea because…well, you know we love any reason to brunch!

Kicking the morning off at Atlanta’s Legacy Test Kitchen, these ladies who brunch were enticed by beautiful settings of quiche, waffles and the cutest individual cakes from Confection Perfection – one for each bridesmaid!

We love the modern table setting, a dark slate hue set by our Charcoal Velluto, whose velvet-inspired touch gave it a nice warm feeling. The accents, in shades of blush and rose gold, really brought a lovely feminine touch without going over the top. Add to that romantic flowers from Ginger Rose and we are over the moon. It’s the perfect color palette for a sophisticated, modern bride!

But the most fun had to be seeing the gorgeous dresses from Fabulous Frocks Bridal. Lace, tulle and
sequins to be had!

So, all in all, wedding party brunches leading up to the big day get a big thumbs up from us. They’re definitely something we can cheers to!

Destination Wedding Inspiration in Provence, France

Oh boy, you are in for a real treat today, all the way from Provence, France! It’s no surprise that we love a destination wedding (see here dreamy beachside nuptials in Tulum, Mexico) and this styled elopement from Cassie Cherneski of Flaire Weddings and Events is no exception!

First of all, Provence, you are gorgeous! The setting for this one, at the Abbaye Saint Eusebe was an
incredible location. From the elegantly simple ceremony inside the abbaye to the perfectly manicured
grounds where the table was set, the backdrop could not have felt more magical.

Dinner was set between the Cypress trees right at magic hour with the setting sun casting dreamy shadows across the grounds. Inspired by the natural palette of the region, with its medieval stone walls and fields of lavender abound, Cassie designed a centerpiece overflowing with pastel shades of lilac, blush and ivory accented with delicate greenery.

Our Lilac Velluto linen, with its soft velvet feel, set the base for the table with a wispy runner flowing in the wind, a nod to the linen textiles of France. And to give it a touch of modern sensibility driftwood chargers and black flatware, from The Treasury Rentals by Emily Grace Designs, were combined with romantic taper candles in assorted brass candlesticks.

And the lovely couple, the bride in her two-piece gown from Eddy K Italia and the groom in a perfectly
tailored suit, was the epitome of romance on this gorgeous day. We’ll definitely keep this one in mind as we gear up for fall, with this beautiful color palette and velvet inspiration on the brain!

Inspirational Tips for a Timeless All White Wedding Design!

There’s something so timeless about a wedding designed with an all-white palette. The look, while classic for weddings can also be great for modern weddings and boho weddings too! So long as you make sure that you aren’t letting it fall a little…flat…all-white décor can set the tone for unique wedding accents and beautiful wedding flowers.

In the spirit of embracing a fresh white palette and seeing what kind of great wedding ideas can come from it, we’ve put together some of our top styling tips for an all-white wedding design! Scroll through to see what our team has to share and get inspired for your wedding!

White can be a great base for your event, use it across your tabletops to unify the space but consider mixing the styles and textures on different tables to add an interesting dimension to the room. If you have an overlay in the mix, consider using a solid linen to complement the other design.

If you prefer a uniform linen look, play with the tabletop accents instead! White linens can be a blank slate for patterned china, elaborate menu cards, napkins in elegant designs and bright colors and innovative floral arrangements. Or if you’re feeling really bold, how about bright red taper candles down the table? Let your creativity flow!

And it’s not just on the tabletop where you can have some fun, adding a diverse assortment of chairs to the décor elevates your wedding look without much effort. Consider specialty chair rentals or using chair covers for chiavari chairs in the mix. Combining a furniture piece, like our Ivory Sky Sofa, with chairs can also create an intimate dining experience for guests.

If you’re going for a minimalist modern wedding look, we love optic white accents! Consider using high-gloss pieces, like white acrylic vases or white acrylic chairs, to add an element of shine.

For a more boho wedding feel, white and wood are a perfect match. Wood can soften bright whites giving the night a rustic and romantic feel. Extra points for mixing in flickering candles and oversized crystals with this one!

If you’re looking to go on-trend, find rose gold accents to mix with your white tabletop. We’re very much into metallic rose gold chairs or shiny rose gold glassware for a simple but sophisticated combination this
season! A touch of rose gold on your dinner plates or chargers can add just the right amount of metallic.

Our all-time favorite piece of advice, no matter what wedding theme you’re going for, all-white décor is
timeless! You can take it through the seasons, use it indoors or outdoors and no matter what your venue. So have some fun with it, we promise you’ll come up with a beautiful all-white wedding design every time!
