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!

Colorful Wedding Inspiration for a Beach Wedding!

Beach weddings in Florida never fail to delight us! Whether it’s a destination wedding on Florida’s Atlantic Coast or a local’s Gulf Coast wedding, they are always guaranteed to be gorgeous and this Florals by the Sea affair is no exception!

The beachside vows set a beautiful backdrop for this wedding! Guests were seated on wooden benches
lined up right on the sand, accented with glass hurricane candle lanterns, that directed straight to the
beautiful ceremony space. The ceremony’s flower arrangement in bright shades of coral was tempered by soft cream and sea green colored flowers and accented by sheer curtains blowing romantically in the ocean breeze.

From the “I Do’s” on Rosemary Beach, we went straight to the reception! We love how this party brought in bold, colorful design accents to brighten up wooden tables and chair elements. The tables were set with a combination of our Royal Papel Chino pattern in runners and high top linens scattered throughout the venue.

The real magic was happening with the incredible arrangements on the tabletops! Bringing in shades of
coral, fuchsia, orange and blush pink, Sally LaCourse of Florals by the Sea created a bright setting! We love how the flowers are set throughout in an assortment of glass vases and mixed in with natural elements like twine-wrapped candleholders and pieces of driftwood.

And as with any great wedding, let there be cake! This naked-style cake from Confections on the Coast was a perfect sweet treat to end the night. The sugar flowers were made to match the wedding florals and they pulled it off deliciously!

From it’s bright colors to its sugar sand, this is definitely another gorgeous wedding on Florida’s gorgeous Emerald Gulf Coast!

Napkin Designs to Elevate your Event Design!

You already know, it’s all about the details when it comes to designing an out-of- this-world event (case in point: stellar parties like Engage!2017)! If you’re looking around thinking, “I’ve got it covered, every little thing looks amazing,” then kudos to you! But, let us ask you one thing before you go…what do your napkins look like?

That’s the game-changer right there, an unexpected napkin to really surprise your wedding guests when
they sit down for dinner. You’ll know you’ve nailed it if your guests are wondering whether or not they’re
supposed to actually wipe their mouth with the napkin – which, by the way, yes they are! So, if you’re ready to take your tabletop design to the next level, scroll through to see just how to complement your event theme with a pretty little napkin!

For a Southern sensibility with a touch of Charleston Wedding charm, go for lace napkins against textured
cream-colored linens like the Parchment Tulle Wave, Gold Emma and Beige Velluto. Complete the look with the Ivory Athena Chairback and accent with furniture like our Vintage Wood Coffee table.

Are you channeling a tropical climate or throwing a beach party? Whether you have a Fiji or Jamaica
wedding destination, have fun with a bright printed napkin! Pair it with bright colored linens like our Rust
Velluto, Lipstick Velluto or Palm Springs print. Give your guests a place to lounge using our Rose Gold Cage Side Table and midcentury modern inspired Walnut Chair.

If you’re dreaming of Tuscany, go for a rustic wedding style with linen-inspired fabrics. Add a napkin with an embroidered edge detail, perfect for folding in a napkin or tucking an olive branch. Pair it with delicately
gilded linens like our White Josephine and Birch Metallic. Bring in an exposed wood table, like our Maison
Dining Table with a runner in our Shell Tuscany. If you’re adding wedding lounge furniture, consider country inspired pieces like our Maison collection sofas.

Go for color! Maybe you’re looking for bridal shower inspiration or afternoon brunch ideas, either one pairs
well with a blue and yellow palette. We love this blue paisley print napkin played against a geometric pattern, like the Yellow Papel Chino or Marigold Venetian. If you’re looking to go all blue it matches nicely with the Indigo Velluto. Keep the design fun with our White Mirage Chair and Iron Side Table!

To nail that modern wedding at an industrial loft look, mix shades of gray and silver with wood accents. Try
bringing in a soft abstract pattern on your napkin to pair with neutral linens. The Silver Metallic Faux Dupioni and Gray Western are great solids warmed up with metallic elements. If you want to bring in some pattern, the Grey Palomino has a nice ikat pattern! Bring in wood accents in furniture, like the Oak Chair or Silver Aspen Table with Cognac Croc Cover, to create a cozy atmosphere for guests.

Whatever your wedding style or event theme, there is a perfect napkin for you! From printed styles to bold
colors or even napkin décor, look around to make sure you make every detail count!

Henna Inspired Sangeet Linens in Bright Colors!

There are bright colors everywhere, intricate henna designs being delicately drawn on guests and the best dance party ever taking place…where are we? Welcome to a Sangeet party! This gorgeous one in particular from Kate & Co. took place at the beautiful Overlook Farm, just outside of St. Louis, and has us so excited!

From the location to the décor (you know how we love pink!), it’s not a party to miss! We are so obsessed with this color palette; from fuchsia to orange and about a million shades in between, this is a stunner! Festive Couture’s assortment of wild flowers added a beautiful touch to the décor, tying in the farm-feel with tin vases on the farmhouse tables.

We love how they played so well with our Pink Hemp Flocking and Orange Hemp Flocking linens, bringing out the bright hues while letting the Paisley Henna- inspired patterns shine!

The night wrapped up in a wild dance party, with the bride in her Anushree Reddy outfit, and the groom tearing up the dance floor with their friends to the sounds of DJ MOMA. If this is the Sangeet, can you just imagine what the wedding was like?

Traditional Weddings Inspired by History

Inspiration comes from in many ways. Often we are looking for what’s current and what’s coming when we should be exploring what’s in the past to find something refreshing. We did just that when we looked back to our own history here at home to find some traditional wedding inspiration to pair alongside an elegant styled shoot from Lindsay Bishop Events.

So, you can imagine our delight looking through this impeccable styled shoot from Lindsay Bishop, who not only planned and designed but also put together the lush florals for the day!

From a navy and white color palette to ornate silver décor, the details are everything in this inspirational wedding photo shoot! Clay Austin Photography captured every little thing not just on digital but on film as well – be still my heart!

We’re obsessing over the tabletop silver, from the serve ware to the punch bowl, borrowed from Terrace Oaks Antique Mall and Gryphon Estate Silver, and how perfectly it pairs with the simply sophisticated china from Sasha Nicholas and against our Navy Jamestown toile linen. Add to that Hatch Cove Designs’ stationery suite with grey-hued calligraphy, a dainty touch to tie it all together!

Of course this all came to life in the heart of Charleston at The Old Exchange, a location oozing with history’s sweet secrets. From cobblestone streets to old seaports, we’ll be keeping an eye for historical inspiration from here on out!
