Rose Quartz + Serenity Valentine’s Day Inspiration

Pantone Valentine's Inspiration

Drawing inspiration from the subtle, diffused shades which were named the Pantone Colors of 2016, Rose Quartz + Serenity, today’s styled shoot is romantic enough to have us feeling those sweet Valentine’s Day vibes + practical enough to inspire many spring + summer weddings to come!

Adrienne of The Bloom Of Time designed the dreamy setting, set against the backdrop of The Colony House  in Anaheim, California. She shares, I love the mood that the two colors together provide, so we went for a whimsical theme with lots of fluffy, softly textured details. Blooms full of ruffled petals in our chosen color palette provided the base of the design: garden roses, peonies, sweet pea, delphinium, and hydrangea, amongst others. Sparkling jewelry from Petals & Stones and accents of natural rose quartz provided a bit of contrast to all the softness.  

Thanks so much to our girl Katie Pritchard for the beautiful photos!

Relaxed, bohemian, ethereal and most importantly, cute as can be, the new Babes of the Nile collection by Joanna August provides an alternative to standard flower girl attire. A Boho bride’s dream, Babes’ four dress options and top and skirt combos are flawless for mixing different styles or for sending a single girl down the aisle in the perfect flutter sleeved dress.

Modern New York City Wedding at The Foundry: Lauren + Ben

Colorful NYC Wedding

Today’s wedding incorporates so many of our favorite things. Bold color, great florals, an amazing venue and a stylish, creative couple. Lauren + Ben worked with Jove Meyer Events + BRRCH to craft a setting that was beautifully reflective of their everyday aesthetics. They went the extra mile to personalize the environment at The Foundry LIC (in Long Island, New York) and we love that they weren’t afraid to include lots of color + texture into their day. Just check out those vibrant bridesmaid dress hues!

They go on to say, We both care very deeply about design and aesthetics, and wanted our wedding to feel modern and non-traditional, but not follow a particular “theme”. Inspired by our love of mid-century architecture, furniture, and modern artists who work with geometric shapes, we went for a look that was both contemporary and natural with hand-designed elements and materials like brass, copper, and stone.

Thanks so much to Amber Gress for the beautiful photos + congrats to Lauren + Ben on a gorgeous day!

We knew it would be an emotional ceremony and provided handkerchiefs on each seat in a custom made wrap that read, “For Happy Tears”. For the handkerchiefs, Lauren selected four black and white Ikat patterns at a fabric market while on a business trip to India.

While each and every moment felt like a dream, one of our favorite moments was during our dinner outside in the courtyard at the Foundry. We were beyond lucky to have the most perfect weather during our wedding weekend. Perfect weather, eucalyptus garlands, cafe and candle lights, and incredible food set the tone for the most heart-felt and memorable speeches from our family and friends. We laughed, we cried and couldn't have been happier in that moment.

People always tell you that the little things don’t matter, that no one will notice. I totally disagree – the little things we did to personalize the wedding all added up to a big impact. Of course we put a lot of work into every detail, but it represented our style and our passion which made it all worth it.

Be present! Everyone says the day will fly by and you won’t believe how quick it all goes. But we kept reminding ourselves to be in the moment and savor it all – and it worked.

You might think that you won’t want a video, but we recommend getting a low budget option to re-live the speeches and special moments again.
