Destination: Charleston, SC

Welcome to Charleston, South Carolina. This quaint Southern beauty is one of the top spots for destination weddings and there’s no wondering why. With its seaside views and beautifully preserved historic buildings, it is chock-full of character and charm. Strolling along the Charleston peninsula you’ll run across some of the oldest churches in the United States alongside delicious restaurants serving up traditional seafood dishes until you stumble upon Lowndes Grove Plantation. It’s right there that A Charleston Bride made us fall in love with Charleston.

This dreamy wedding, designed in neutral shades of ivory and soft shades of blue was overlooking the Ashley River under a magical tent twinkling with chandeliers. With the tables set in cornflower blue paisley patterned linens, A Charleston Bride designed bright flowers in an ombre effect fading from coral to nude to create a beautiful balance of color. The small nods to tradition were so beautifully woven into this couple’s wedding day we can barely believe it! From a custom wedding crest, painted by artist Arabella June, to a fret-pattern ribbon around the bouquet we love how the small touches were tended to.

It was a truly magical night with guests dancing happily and others lounging around in the beautiful rentals from Ooh! Event Rentals set underneath the trees, strung with lanterns and sparkling into the night. And to top it all off? A sparkler send off down the dock for a romantic ride around the Charleston harbor in a vintage wooden speedboat. Can you believe it? Only in Charleston.

Infinite Summer Inspiration

With August upon us, the summer sadness is starting to sink in. We can hardly believe how quickly the season has gone by. But you know what they say, time flies when you’re having fun. That’s exactly what was going on during this Flaire Weddings styled shoot.

Infinite Summer Nuage Designs2

Taking beach inspiration to a whole new level (no navy and white stripes here!) the design has a bright palette full of orange and pink blooms and fun flamingo and pineapple motifs throughout. Wedding Paper Divas really set the mood to party with their bubbly stationary and invitations. I mean, who could deny a pretty pink invitation to “Eat, Drink and Rehearse?” Especially not once you see their gorgeous table set up! Mixing glam sparkle with true Florida-beach vibes, the combination of the white sequin allummettes linens with rattan chargers was just perfect!

Infinite Summer Nuage Designs3

But what really took our breath away were the bridesmaids’ dresses. Nude sequins from Badgley Mishka played so well with the seaside setting at the Ritz Carlton Amelia Island and transitioned with total ease to dinner. This one is definitely one we’ll revisit come the winter months, with one of those flamingo cocktails in hand! Flaire Weddings styled shoot.

Versace, Versace, Versace

If you’ve ever found yourself enjoying a cool stroll down Ocean Drive in Miami’s South Beach, then you’ve certainly come across The Villa Casa Casuarina, or what is more commonly known as the Versace Mansion.

Versace 3

This incredibly grandiose property, built in the 1930s in a unique homage to Spanish architecture, has been a staple of the Miami Beach community for nearly 100 years. It has gone from private residence, to apartment condos, to Gianni Versace’s home (he is the one to thank for it’s beautiful gardens and pool), and now a 5-star hotel on the heart of the strip. It’s no secret that every Miami local has wanted to take a peek behind the walls of this luxury haven so when Nathalie Cadet-James, of Luxe Events, reached out to us for a styled shoot, we jumped right in!

Versace 4

With her incredible style and unique vision, we knew something stunning would come together. Direct from Nathalie’s blog, here’s how this masterpiece came together. “My passion is curating events and experiences that take one’s breath away. “How do you stay inspired Nathalie?” I am often asked. The answer is easy. I allow myself to dream. One night, I literally dreamt I had a bride who wanted a black and gold cake (It’s always about the sweets for me). I wondered, “Who is this girl? What would her story be? And how can I tell it? A clear vision of a styled shoot at the Versace Mansion came into view.  And. This. Is. It.”.

Versace 5

With a truly all-star team, Nathalie’s dream came to life. A black & gold cake from Dominique Couture Cakes pays homage to Gianni Versace and his beautiful home, chic matte black sequin allummettes and a contemporary combination of gold chair covers set the stylish tone of the afternoon and gorgeous flowers by Sprout Flowers add a delicate touch to the gilded design. Oooh, and that bride looks absolutely killer in her Berta Bridal wedding dress from Chic Parisien, as if she is right where she belongs. In true Miami fashion, this styled shoot is gold and shiny and just all around sexy. Definitely one to be remembered!

Spring Fling

With spring officially upon us it’s the perfect time to bust out our brightest colors and boldest patterns and embrace the beautiful season! As the flowers bloom, each one a more stunning shade of pink than the last, our hearts could nearly burst with happiness. Wondering if everyone else felt the same joys of spring as us, we reached out to a few friends in Chicago, Dallas and Charleston to find out. Spoiler art: the answer is yes!

First up, we took to Charleston, South Carolina. With all the beautiful happenings in this quaint city, we were more than thrilled when Yoj Events invited us to be a part of the Bliss & Bespoke retreat. And when we sat down to this final dinner? Well, we could barely contain ourselves!

The gorgeous design, combining a Charleston garden party feel with a Moroccan vibe, drawn from the unique seating, came to be called the “Southern Moroccan Garden Party.” Never shy when it comes to design, Yoj Events loves to play with all the amazing things that can be done with bold colors – insisting that florals can still pop when combined with the right layers of metallics and hues. We love how the juxtaposition of the geometric pattern on these adorable plates against the organic watercolors from stationery and linens.

From the Designer, on Spring Weddings: My advice is to not be afraid of colors you love. Anything, when used in the proper context with the right florals and textures is completely appropriate for the season. For florals, everything pretty and fluffy and colorful is amazing in the spring…use it (hello peonies)!!

Spring Bliss 1

Hopping over to Chicago, we met with Hey Gorgeous Events at the Trouvaille Workshop. Although Rhiannon Bosse is a Michigan native, she took to the windy city to host a week of workshops and called us to join in on the fun! Imagine our delight waking up to find breakfast at this dreamy table. We could certainly get used to this!

Rhiannon admits falling just a little bit in love with this watercolor linen the moment she saw it. The decision to use such a vibrant print this early in the morning was easy – she wanted something unexpected and fresh to get everyone revved up! We love how the details were thoughtfully considered – stems of pink hydrangeas, napkins with a bright yellow border playfully wrapped with delicate pink bows and simple vineyard wood folding chairs – keeping the tablescape looking light and airy.

From the Designer, on Spring Weddings: Spring is hands down the best time of the year to get married if you’re looking for an incredible variety with florals. Peonies, lilacs, cherry blossoms, garden roses from American based family farms, ranunculus blooms, sweet peas; these are just a sampling of the gorgeous product bursting out of the cooler at our floral market come spring!

Spring Bliss 2

Traveling down south to Dallas, we met with Jordan Payne events for this glamorous styled shoot. With her love of fashion (and impeccable style!), Jordan was inspired by the timeless femininity of Chanel and the avant-garde designs of Alexander McQueen when dreaming up this design.

A self-professed obsession with bright colors and watercolor finishes led Jordan straight to this print as a focal design point. Wanting to add dimension to the tablescape, she mixed in different textures and gold tones – with special attention to the unique metal drip effect of the chargers. On first impression, it may look rather whimsical but look closely, you’ll find a nod to McQueen in the beautiful black butterflies and black lace trim accents scattered throughout – making this a perfect balance of light and dark.   

From the Designer, on Spring Weddings:  I always say to my brides, pick a color palette that reflects you and what you want to see in your memories. Take advantage of those amazing blooms that are in season—dogwood, cherry blossom, peonies, lilac and anemones!

Spring Bliss 4

Just as we guessed, spring is clearly the most wonderful time of the year! So enjoy the pretty blooms, clear skies and cool weather because before we know it, spring will be gone as quickly as it arrived, leaving us waiting until we meet again next year!

Shades of Pink

Just when we were beginning to think we were getting too old to feel pretty in pink, Ashley Henry, of Henry Photograpy, reminded us why that’s not even possible.

Shades of Pink 2

Blending delicate shades of pink with deep berry tones, this gorgeous styled shoot is the perfect palette for any blushing bride! With a centerpiece of hanging roses and crystal chandeliers, Madison House Designs really added a contemporary feel to this romantic setting. We love the addition of clear acrylic chairs and menu cards, balancing the lush florals with minimalist details.

Shades of Pink 3

With a keen eye for design, Ashley created a unique blend of modern elements warmed up with just the right touch of rose-colored hues. After seeing this lovely wedding inspiration we are definitely tinkled pink!

Southern Pastels in the heart of Florida

This is Southern sophistication at it’s finest! Set amongst southern moss filled grandfather oaks in the heart of Florida, this pastel-hued inspirational shoot promised to take our breath away, and it certainly did! With winter melting away and dashes of spring starting to come to life, this stunning shoot makes for a beautiful transition. The combination of pale pastels, a bit of shimmer, and a modern touch from our Black Metallic Forest runners created an unforgettable fairytale-like atmosphere that is perfectly suited for the Starlit Supper. Laura, of Ashton Events, says:

“The Starlit Supper is an inspiration shoot-turned-dinner party, in which a team of the most talented Tampa Bay and Central Florida wedding professionals collaborate to create a wedding (or rehearsal dinner) inspiration shoot, and then host all involved plus a few more wedding pro friends too! It’s an evening filled with great conversation, celebration of the end of another year, fabulous food, and nurturing friendships- everything that a good dinner party should entail!”

Hosted by an incredible team of wedding professionals at the private estate, Rocking H Ranch, get lost in the unforgettable film images from Hunter Ryan Photo and the lovely florals and design by Ashton Events below.

From Ashton Events:

This year’s inspiration was rooted in the venue: Rocking H Ranch. We’ve loved working there in the past and for Starlit Supper we focused on bringing in elements of romance, sophistication, and history to one of our favorite charming Southern venues.

The color palette all started with a picture of a pitcher. The soft, pastel colors were offset with touches of rich greens. The very bottom of the pitcher has a thin black line. That brought in a hint of refinement to the outdoor space. We echoed the black accents in the marbled runners from Nuage Designs and the print materials. We loved that the pastels allowed the colors to be feminine without being overtly feminine.

We will soon share more about our inspiration + design process over on our blog, but we loved the idea of mixing textures, contrasting soft palettes and as always for our designs: interaction. We love for guests to feel involved + inspired by every aspect of the event, and truthfully the details of the evening executed just that.

Weddings in NYC: A Conversation with Jes Gordon

This week all eyes are on New York City for Fashion Week, so we decided it couldn’t be a better time to sit down and chat with the ultimate NYC girl, Jes Gordon of properFUN. Drawing inspiration from the city and all its moving parts, Jes shared with us insightful details of her design and planning process, favorite places to visit, and even told us how she got started!

Check out the full interview and make sure not to miss all the stunning details of her magical events below!

Love Felt in the Five Senses

There are certain times of the year, we can’t help but fall head over heels in love with love. Valentine’s Day is a great reminder to include a little more romance in our events and in our personal lives. It can be challenging to to redefine romance when we’ve been taught it’s all about red roses and pink hearts. This year, Rebecca Rose Creative found a way to do it! She blew our minds with one of her unique styled shoots, filled with love and affection, and no pink hearts in sight.

What really got us about this shoot is how it touches each of our five senses. Absolutely breathtaking soft hues are accentuated by soft candlelight and a stunning custom watercolor pattern by Simply Jessica Marie – used on both the cake and as the liner to invitation envelopes. A sight for sore eyes!

Our Silver Velvet Linen adds so much to the element of touch – so smooth and warming, velvet is a texture that is impossible not to feel. The fresh floral aroma blossoming from the arrangements draws you in before you even sit down. And of course, the simply beautiful and delectable cake could not have been more ready to be cut and enjoyed.

We’ll go ahead and leave the last sense, hearing, to your imagination – a romantic partner’s voice leading you into this dream dinner design, perhaps?

Notes from Rebecca Rose Creative on the shoot:

This editorial shoot was styled and shot at The Lively Workshop for Photographers in October, 2015. The workshop was co-hosted by Rebecca Rose Creative and Perry Vaile Photography and held on location at the beautiful historic Graylyn Estate in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

As part of the educational experience for our photographer attendees, we prepared several editorial shoots so that they could gain insight into the creative process of preparation, styling and photography instruction and have an opportunity to shoot the design content and model themselves. This particular shoot was planned in conjunction with Michelle Butler, the editor of Trendy Bride Magazine. As a speaker at the workshop, Michelle gave our attendees invaluable insight into the editorial process and then we were able to jointly share our inspiration for this shoot with the attendees as well so that they could be privy to the entire creative process from start to finish.

Our biggest challenges were seasonal considerations and the weather! This workshop took place in the fall, when the leaves were turning color. One of Michelle’s requests was for this shoot to include content that could transcend the season and be inspiring to couples planning and designing spring or summer weddings as well. We worked carefully to include soft colors in the palette (which is why we included blush!) and strategically select locations with Perry where we could ensure that fall foliage wouldn’t be within the view of her lens.

Michelle also requested the inclusion of a floral pattern, so we worked with Simply Jessica Marie! Jessica developed a beautiful watercolor pattern that we used on the cake and the liners of invitation envelopes. The week of the workshop, we learned of a terribly rainy weather forecast. Not ideal conditions for an editorial photo shoot! But we decided to embrace the challenge and demonstrate the beauty of a rainy wedding day by using the wet windows and surfaces to our aesthetic advantage. This was a great learning experience for all of the photographers who often have to tackle the elements on wedding days with very little warning. Nobody can control the weather!

Perry’s final film images came back just as we’d hoped and show a beautifully moody, rich and lively aesthetic that is perfect for any wedding day…rain or shine.

Heritage Plaid: A Beach Affair

Plaid – one of the most timeless patterns in modern fashion and design. Every year, regardless of trends, plaid always is a major force for fall and winter events. But what about when the seasons change? With the holidays now behind us and warmer days slowly breathing life into these chilly months, we are loving the working plaid into a fresh new season and pairing it with the most renewing backdrop: the beach.

This cozy seaside concept was breathtakingly executed by Kelsey of Kelsey Rae Designs. She assembled an A-Team of awesome visionaries in Connecticut to create what you’re about to enjoy. Pairing vintage china and stunning red & fuchsia florals with our Khaki, Wine & Black Plaid Runner and our Flax Metallic Burlap Napkins on a rugged farm table, Kelsey created a true winter escape.

Notes from Kelsey on the shoot:

“I’ve been traveling back and forth from Southern California to Connecticut, and I was inspired to pull together my favorite east coast vendors to do a shoot on the calm beach of Fairfield, CT during my last trip back east for the year. I partnered with Brooke Allison Photography to bring a unique twist to a winter shoot. We wanted to incorporate plaid with hints of ocean elements. Our bride model gleamed in a JLM Couture gown from A Little Something White Bridal Couture, while our male model posed in plaid.

I used a Southern California calligrapher, Louise Letters, to showcase her modern hand letting with an invitation suite and reception stationery that gave off a fun and youthful vibe. The florals blew me away! Carrie Wilcox is one of the most talented women I know and the way she arranged the centerpiece and bouquet, just left me breathless. She tied in vibrant colors and also included hints of berries- two opposites that seemed just to work.

Erica O’Brien is a wiz in the kitchen. I gave her what seemed like an odd task to interpret- use elements of the beach and winter. The cake she created was perfect! My shoots are never made possible without the help of Lauren Kreter of Borrowed, A Vintage Inspired Company. Her vintage china and styling is the very best! A huge thank you to East Coat Occasions and Amber Papastavros who adorned our model! I hope this shoot inspires beach lovers to bring in elements of the season and not be afraid to mix textures and patterns!”

A Conversation With Suzanne Reinhard & Anne Barge Fashion Show

Atlanta – the striking scenery, the small-town charm in a major metropolitan hub, the born and bred polish with big city edge, and of course the 2016 Anne Barge Fashion Show this week! It’s an amazing opportunity for us to see the latest trends coming up in bridal dresses for 2016, which couldn’t be more exciting! Designing one’s dream wedding often begins with a beautiful dress.

Returning to plan this year’s event, after planning last year’s successful inaugural show, is Suzanne Reinhard. Her philosophy of “Creating Luxury From Love” has manifested in some of the most memorable weddings in Atlanta. Coupled with Anne Barge’s latest collection, inspired by the “gardens of France,” this not an event to be missed!

Suzanne is a planner who is known to always go above and beyond for her clients, turning even the smallest special details about her bride and groom into something spectacularly unique to be shared with 250 of their closest friends. She makes every single wedding that she plans a one-of-a-kind experience. Not to mention how she consistently raises the bar in the epicurean arena!

There is also no one that understands Atlanta better than Suzanne, who believes that southern style encompasses three key elements: beauty, warmth, and sophistication.  With a major vision of turning this fashion show into an annual experience akin to NY Bridal Fashion Week, we decided to sit down with Suzanne to chat about her experience and philosophy in the weddings and event industry.

Impressionism: A French Inspired Wedding

A table design truly is a work of art and we can’t think of a more accurate example of this than with this table design inspired by the French Impressionism movement, which derives from the title of a Claude Monet work, Impression, soleil levant.  With winter officially in full force, we are lost in dreams of warmer days ahead of us. That’s why this week we’re all about embracing soft textures, abundant garden blooms, and vivid use of a pastel color palette with this French Impressionist inspired wedding shoot. The super talented Emily March Photography and Rebecca Rose Creative created a stunning styled shoot inspired by the 19th century art movement, which means lots of soft textures and pastel shades that come together like an artist’s dream.

2016-1-12_photo-2

As she talks about the concept, the event stylist and floral designer, Rebecca Rose Creative says:

This shoot was inspired by the beauty of 19th century French Impressionist artwork. In designing these wedding ideas, we strove to give a modern take on French Impressionism, which is always characterized by soft textures that blend together, abundant garden blooms, and vivid use of a pastel color palette. The gown, by Elizabeth Dye, quickly became the perfect element of inspiration, with its classic, romantic silhouette and unique blue-gray tulle overlay. Artwork by Monet lines the envelopes on the invitation suite and the colors, textures, and details of a French garden party are recreated for a modern elegant dinner setting.

2016-1-12_photo-1

We just can’t get over all the beautiful little details! From the styling of the napkins to the beautifully handcrafted stationary, this shoot was truly a work of art.
