Our Top 10 Weddings from 2013

With the start of 2014 just around the corner, we thought we’d start the week with the top 10 weddings we shared on Green Wedding Shoes in 2013. These weddings were the most viewed, commented on, and shared on social media.

Looking back at the posts from the past year is always so fun for us….this year, we were especially happy to see how diverse our tops posts were geographically (from California, to Washington, to Australia and Austria to name a few) and how varied the styles were (from DIY to bohemian and even an elopement!). GWS is all about making your wedding all about you, so the variety of locations and styles is perfect for us to help inspire you lovely brides and wedding professionals. We love sharing all of the amazing weddings of our rad couples + talented artists….and we look forward to the great weddings we already have planned for 2014!

So, here we go! Is your favorite on this list?

Sparkly New Year’s Eve Celebration Inspiration

new years eve inspiration

Since New Year’s Eve is the most festive night of the year, it definitely calls for sparkle, champagne, and confetti…lots and lots of confetti! And the creative team behind today’s styled shoot, photographed by Apryl Ann, wanted to take the concept of sparkle + glam and throw a styled NYE bash with a fun, modern vibe.  The color scheme of dramatic black + gold, with touches of feminine blush pink, is just the prettiest. When paired with art deco + geometric-inspired details, it’s perfect for anything from a glitzy wedding to a New Year’s party!

Birds of a Feather headed up the design and provided the stunning, richly-hued florals. The dramatic bouquet included tulips, ranunculus, and peonies, paired with an abundance of agonies foliage. So pretty, right?!

The unique table centerpiece was constructed out of gold blocks that varied in height and acted as a pedestal for the florals + candles. The gold geometric accent plates sat atop pink satin napkins and a glittering black sequin tablecloth.
