Love Sparkles. A Modern White Wedding

The lovely Myka + Tori of Sitting in a Tree Events sent over some fun modern white wedding inspiration to share with you all today. They teamed up with Brightly DesignedOrganic Elements and Suzanne Hansen Photography to create this Modern White Wedding at Old Venice Restaurant in San Diego. Their inspiration was a clean but cozy white wedding with punches of gold to warm it up and create sparkles.

  10. love, LOVE! we’re having a winter white wedding & i love seeing different takes on a white wedding. i’m filing this away under inspiration :-)

  11. My favorite part is the fireplace! I love the rustic old world look next to the modern chic dining table! Beautiful!

  12. Where did she get the amazing dress?!?

  13. how breath taking and romantic!

  14. Love it so much! The subtle vintage look is very classy! Bride and groom look so happy. Well done photographer, you’ve captured something special :)

  15. So pretty and romantic!! Perfect combination of glamorous, cozy, modern and vintage. Tori & Myka are super AMAZING!

  16. That is the best votive holder EVER. where is it from?!

  17. 2 amazing ladies creating amazing events! Where were you when I got married?! ;) I might have to renew my vows to experience the lavishness!

  18. I love it. That dress is amazing!

  19. thanks for all of the sweet comments. we had so much fun styling this shoot.

    lauren: the dress was bought at bloomindales. they no longer carry it…but the designer does:

    erin: the wood votive holder is actually something that was already onsite at the restaurant. Isn’t it gorgeous!

  20. I love the way the gold just sparkles in the pictures, it’s a great contrast to the white!

  21. who wouldn’t love for their wedding to look like this?! beautiful, so well done!

  22. What fun! A gorgeous, classic, yet with a vintage touch wedding.

  23. Where is her ring from?

  24. I LOVE the theme! It’s so cute and original.

  25. The last two shots are WHAAMMMMYYYYY! <--- that means they’re good...

  26. I remembered my Mom when I saw this. She loves white. I noticed how elegant a wedding is when you use white with sequins, glitters, metallics and of course, glass.

  27. I absolutely love the design on this one, and the photos are excellent =)

  28. This is absolutely beautiful which, of course, we expect from these 2 amazingly talented and hard working women. I loved the simplicity of the bouquet and the nature-shaped, but gilded candlesticks. I am so excited to see what Myka & Tori will come up with next!

  29. How weird I was JUST getting ready to plan a bridal shower at Old Venice, my FAVE!!! Were the ghost chairs already there as well? I love the entire look….so gorgeous!

  30. Hi Kelly,
    Actually those chairs are ours (we brought them in for the shoot). Have fun planning a bridal shower at Old Venice…that restaurant is gorgeous!

    Hi Claudia,
    Not sure where Farra’s ring is from (we are checking with her)…but we do know that the stone is an aquamarine…SWOON!
    xo, tori & myka

  31. Love the retro feel and adore the individual cupcake domes!

  32. So so lovely! There’s a very intimate and romantic feeling to this shoot. I can see me and my new hubby spending our anniversary with close friends in a setting just like this! Yup, I think that’s the plan:) Loving every detail to this, and what a great looking couple!

  33. This came out fantastic, SheWanders captured the attitude just right, Brightly designed got the paper products just right and Tori and Myka must have the most finely decorated house in town because the accents they bring in are just perfect. Love it!!

  34. All-white weddings usually get a bad rap for being too traditional, but I think they are so fresh and modern! LOVE this – and all the little touches, like the “Love Sparkles” tags.

  35. Love the bouquet. Does anyone know the name of those white flowers with the black centers?

  36. Hi Ashley. They are anemones!

  37. What are the tiny white flowers used in the bouquet? I see anemones and tulips, is there any other flowers in there? And is the greenery the leaves from the tulips? Thank you so much, smiles
