Whimsical Brooklyn Bridge Anniversary Session: Allie + William

Brooklyn Bridge Anniversary

Out of all the iconic photo spots in New York, the Brooklyn Bridge is probably our fave. And it was the perfect place for Allie + William to mark three awesome years of marriage with a sweet anniversary shoot with Whitney from Tulle & Grace! Since they knew they would be leaving NYC to head back to Atlanta, they loved the idea of not only celebrating their anniversary, but capturing some memories to remember their time living in New York.

Leah from Color Pop Events styled the shoot + it was done just right if you ask us! Plus, we loved hearing Whitney describe how Leah brought a vintage bike (from Little Vintage Rentals) + a giant pink tassel balloon over on the ferry! And Allie, who’s also the creative behind the floral studio, Bowman & Clark, whipped up a paper-wrapped, market-inspired bouquet that looked just perfect resting in the wire bike basket. And it also seemed to be an amazing match for her fun mint tulle skirt from Space 46. Cuteness all around, folks!

Let’s hear a little bit of marriage advice from these cuties: Listen to each other and compromise, always. Do what is best for your partner even if it is hard on you sometimes. Push each other to be better and stronger. Never stop adventuring and learning together. Let the little things go, it isn’t worth the fight.

Congrats on three years, Allie + William! And best of luck with your move back to Atlanta!

Flower of the Month: Ranunculus

Ranunculus Flower Feature

It’s no surprise that we’re flower obsessed here at GWS (which is one of the reasons why we’re so excited to share our spring flower guide with you in, like, a week + a half!) To tie us all over until that happens, we are beyond thrilled to share today’s feature, and a new monthly GWS column, highlighting a flower each month that you can incorporate into your wedding, next party or around your home. (Or you can follow along simply to discover + learn more about some ultra pretty blooms!)

Janie from The Bride’s Cafe + photographer, Serena of Love By Serena, will be teaming up to produce + share these features with us each month. First up is a personal fave of ours, the ranunculus, and a flower that makes us think ‘spring’ every time we see it!

Spring Arrangement

Janie tells us more about this crazy-pretty flower, One of my very favorite spring flowers are ranunculus. They come in a variety of beautiful colors and I love incorporating them in my floral designs. I’m always amazed at the varieties….from the dark plums which look like velvet to the pretty shades of pinks. I thought it would be fun to design two totally different floral arrangements….one look incorporating the light shades of the ranunculus and a “moodier” look using the darker color palettes.

Get the Look: The pretty arrangement above includes tulips, mini carnations, seeded eucalyptus in addition to ranunculus.

Colorful Art Museum Wedding: Shawn + Phil

Cleveland Ohio Wedding

It’s FRIDAY! And we thought we’d go ahead and end the week on a fashionably fun note. With a colorful handmade reception held at Cleveland’s Museum of Contemporary Art, Shawn + Phil’s wedding packs a punch of modern neon + gold details that we’re seriously loving right now. These two went all out, creating a day that was imaginative + artful and – of course – reflective of their relationship. Modernists + fellow music devotees at heart, they were super excited about their ceremony tunes and had their string quartet perform modern versions of songs they love. How cool is that?! Let’s hear a little bit more about their inspiration + how they made their day their own…

The overall inspiration came from Kate Spade’s aesthetic. Her brand is formal yet fun, which is exactly how we wanted the day to feel! Tuxedos and cocktail dresses with loads of bold colors and textures.

A shout out to Mary Wyar Photography for the lovely images + big congrats to Shawn + Phil on an amazing day!

Vera Wang Wedding Dress

Shawn was so stylin’ on her big day! Here’s a quick list of all the fun elements that made up her bridal ensemble: the Kathleen Gown by Vera Wang (via Cincinnati Bridal and Formal) a BHLDN veil + garter,  earrings + clutch by Kate Spade + fun Badgley Mischka shoes!

The big pop of confetti for our church exit! I also really loved the neon signs made by Marcus Conrad Poston, and the seating chart Aimee Paquin from Modernly Events constructed using the neon lights. I also really loved the "If I do say so myself" guest book alternative she constructed; turned out exactly as I envisioned!

First and foremost, figure out what kind of vibe or style you want for the event. Then, choose your decor and vendors very carefully based on the style you have in mind. This is absolutely key, and will help you eliminate lots of ideas that just wont work for your big day.
