Elegant & Organic Fall Wedding Inspiration

When Desiree Shuey found a gorgeous ivory dress that she had purchased for an event years ago tucked away in the back of her closet, she knew she had to do something with it. Her wheels began turning and after a good amount of time was spent brainstorming, an elegant + organic fall inspired shoot began to take shape. As a self-proclaimed lover of autumn, she knew she wanted to incorporate lots of details that identify with the season – like pumpkins, candles, glass domes, and seasonal foliage – but with a more nontraditional palette of ivory, silver-y sage and rust. So many pretty details for all of you fall brides to be inspired by and pin for your big day!

An all-white aisle is so pretty + refined. Loving all the sizes + shapes of the pumpkins Desiree used.

And Collette Budd did a beautiful job creating arrangements that definitely have a fall-like feel, but incorporate Desiree’s fresh color palette.

Greek Mythology Halloween Wedding Inspiration

greek mythology inspiration

Happy Halloween, everyone! Inspired by the Greek mythology of Hades + Persephone, the team behind today’s Halloween wedding inspiration staged an elegant dinner filled with design elements true to the tale and a gorgeous, aphotic color palette. Photographed by Kristen Booth + styled by Simply Sera Events, this shoot is sure to get you in the Halloween spirit with all of it’s dark + moody details! And I’m pretty head over heels for the stunning, black Tadashi Shoji dress – it would be such a fab choice for a bold + daring bride! :) For those of you who don’t know much about Greek Mythology, here’s a snippet of the story of Hades + Persephone from Sera:

Hades is the god of the underworld who kidnapped Persephone, the goddess of vegetation to be his queen. She would have been able to return to the living but because she ate a few pomegranate seeds in the underworld, she must reign as Hade’s queen in the underworld during parts of the year.

An Autumn Sunset Bridal Soiree

bridal soiree inspiration

Today’s styled shoot provides perfect inspiration for those of you who are planning a bridal soiree to ask your gals to be by your side on your big day, or want to thank them for all they’ve done for you during the planning process! The Confetti Committee + Gypsy Floral did the most incredible job of producing a party that is filled with lots of beautiful + intentional details that we know you’re going to love. We imagine an intimate outdoor picnic where you + your ladies could make flower crowns, sip yummy cocktails and, of course, enjoy some delicious cake, too! And while this editorial is inspired by fall, we think you could take the overall concept and apply it to any season or theme with just a few small tweaks! Here’s a bit more from Loft Photographie, the talent behind the lens on this one:

With a color palette inspired by the warm tones of a sunset, we wanted to breathe some fresh air into an autumn-themed bridesmaid soiree. Giving nature a makeover, we hand painted wood slices, acorns, and sticks to lend a whimsical touch to an otherwise very earthy setting. We incorporated figs, herbs, peaches, pears, pomegranates and other fall “must’s” into the decor by including them around the naked cake and in floral arrangements.

And while I love Spring + all the abundance of beautiful flowers available at that time, there is something about the colors + textures of fall arrangements that make my jaw drop every time. These lovelies by Gypsy Floral are definitely no exception! Just gorgeous…

Michelle’s Patisserie baked a charming naked cake + as Loft Photographie mentioned earlier, the wood slices were hand-painted by a bunch of the creatives involved with the shoot. Such a fun backdrop idea!
