Berry-hued Botanical Wedding Inspiration

berry botany inspiration

Yep, it’s true, we’re crazy for color. Any + all hues are welcome in our book. Today’s editorial provides the perfect palette inspiration for a super gorgeous fall wedding, so we were loving it right from the get-go. The gals behind this one (Lime Green Photography + Statice Couture) were influenced by vintage botanical posters, bright + unique florals, and the contrast between light and dark. And they staged a setting that would inspire, say, a stylish dinner party, a pretty Autumn wedding, or really anything in between! Let’s hear a bit more about it from Megan of Lime Green:

We wanted to use an array of natural elements and plants that couples wouldn’t normally think to consider when choosing their florals and table decor. For example, Suzie of Statice used aloe vera leaves as an interesting way to add texture and elongation to the table, instead of a traditional runner. The plates were decorated with large fig leaves and leucodedron flowers. The candlesticks were wrapped in birch, and pomegranates + blackberries were included as another way to incorporate nature. A large black ceremony backdrop made out of plywood was installed behind our couple to create contrast in our light filled space, similar to a vintage botanical poster or floral Dutch Masters painting.

The cake was designed by Jonathan Caleb, who is a true sugar artist. All of the flowers on the cake are made of sugar, and it was covered in dark chocolate.

Our bride wore beautiful Sarah Seven gowns from Wildflower Bridal and was decorated with jewelry from Christina Nicole. We loved having different options for her hair, as most brides like to change things up for their reception. The flower crown was designed by Statice and the headband from Three Bird Nest

Laidback European-Inspired Wedding: Molly + Asher

Molly and  Asher Wedding

Happy Monday! Today’s wedding is a fun one, friends. Molly + Asher tied the knot at a gorgeous, old Los Angeles mansion with a celebration that was filled with chic, European-inspired design elements and a carefree summer dinner party vibe. Some very special people were involved with Molly + Asher’s wedding, ensuring it would be memorable and one-of-a-kind…but don’t worry, we won’t ruin the surprise for you. It’s just too good! Molly has a few words to share with us about the day, then it’s right to the lovely photos by Heather Kincaid, which you definitely won’t want to miss…

As a stylist, I had done a lot of photo shoots at the Paramour Mansion and felt very connected to the space. I knew that when the day came for me to get married it would only feel right to do it there. Boy was I right! I wanted the reception to feel easy and casual with a chic European edge, and my wedding planner, Sharlene Griffith, really stayed true to that vision. Whoa Nelly Catering did an amazing job with the food, and the wine from Hess vineyards superseded my expectations. I didn’t want any part of the evening to be uptight. The goal was for people to feel like they could kick off their shoes and run through the grass if they wanted to.

I grew up with Mary Kate and Ashley. They are very close friends of mine and have been for 15 years. The minute I got engaged they said they would love to design and gift me my gown. There is no one I would rather have done it than those girls. Their taste is impeccable and I really trust them. Their team was so incredible and patient with me. They were always so calming and made the process even more enjoyable. Designing my gown with them was the most exciting and emotional experience of my life and I will never forget what they did for me, I will hold it in my heart forever.

I cried all the way down the aisle because I was so overwhelmed with all the love around me. It was so personal. We wrote our own vows and both cried while exchanging them. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

Minimal Bohemian Beach Elopement Inspiration

minimal boho elopement

One of the best aspects of eloping is the freedom to just do your thing. And if you’ve been dreaming of a minimal bohemian seaside celebration, it just might look a little something like this! For today’s styled shoot, Tina from Loveridge Photography, Taylor from A Wild Poppy, and the ladies of Twiggs Floral Studio worked together to create a setting that would complement, rather than over power, their gorgeous beach surroundings. And who could blame them? With that stunning rocky shoreline backdrop, less definitely was more. We hope any of you who are considering a boho elopement at the beach will find yourselves inspired by this one! Here’s a little bit of backstory from Tina:

Taylor and I originally got together to just shoot a look-book for her growing line of weddings dresses in her vintage store, “A Wild Poppy.” After talking about how we are inspired by a seemingly growing trend of intimate and thoughtful gatherings for weddings, we decided to keep the inspiration going and create a wedding at one of our all-time favorite locations, Montana de Oro, California…

The idea of a sweet post-ceremony picnic in the sand sounds pretty perfect to us. And how rad is that driftwood + cinderblock table? Would make for a fun DIY coffee table, too!
