Dreamy Bohemian Wedding Inspiration

dreamcatchers backdrop

Today’s fun editorial features a real couple + some killer boho details that we know you are going to love! Sara is a Free People Me Girl (click through to see what that’s all about!) and although she + Garret were recently married, they were still up for playing dress up as the bride + groom for this gorgeous project with photographer Valerie Darling and the designers at Poppy & Blush!

If you’re a fan of dream catchers (we so are!) this setting is sure to inspire you. The dream catcher ceremony backdrop was made by hand by the P & B team, who spent hours perfecting each one. And they are all unique + include stunning vintage lace or crystals into the design! Such a dreamy setting for saying I do…

Romantic French Castle Wedding: Sophie + David

French Castle Wedding

Although it wouldn’t take a whole lot to get us on board with a French castle wedding in general, Sophie + David’s celebration, captured by Anne-Claire Brun, somehow feels better than anything we could ever dream up. Though they didn’t really think of a theme beforehand, as they began to put their design ideas together (thanks, of course, to Pinterest!) it became pretty obvious that they were going for a rustic feel with a chic European twist. And through all the pinning + planning, the main inspiration remained the beautiful backdrop – their epic French Castle venue – where they would eventually recite their vows. As Sophie states, The venue was so beautiful that it really didn’t need much at all.

The Ceremony. Such a beautiful life experience for a couple. The beauty of the location, walking the aisle with my dad on a very meaningful song, then seeing David standing there under this beautiful floral arch. I completely lost it.

We wrote the ceremony so it felt very personal and meaningful. David and I and most of our guests were in tears the whole time! I would have never imagined this moment to be so emotional. There was something magical about it.

It felt like it was just David and I on a cloud.

Enjoy the process and when something doesn’t go the way you want it to be, remember that there is always an awesome back up solution somewhere.

If you have some ideas that seem a bit hard to execute, some suppliers or wedding planner might try and convince you to do things differently because it is easier to do what they do for everyone. It happened to me a few times (i.e. your cocktail is too long, you can’t use this furniture here because transport is too hard, you should put your tables like this, you should get a marquee, etc etc). In this case, be firm (in a nice way!) and stick to your idea. It’s the little personal details that make the day so special.

I think it is crucial to pick the right suppliers who have the same sensibility as yours, which can be tricky especially if you plan remotely. Especially if you get a wedding planner, makes sure she understands your tastes.

One mistake I made: I didn’t ask for enough help the 2 days before and the day after. David and I had a tough time the next day trying to wrap everything. DELEGUATE!

On the day, let it go, enjoy the ‘getting ready’ time and more importantly make sure you spend most of the day with your husband. Stop for a minute and look around you.

Whimsical Boho Wedding Inspiration

Hanging florals backdrop

Today’s editorial features the work of two great photographers (Jessica M. Wood Photography Sincerely, A. Photography) and a whole lotta bohemian macrame goodness! The ladies were totally enamored by the idea of mixing + matching intricate woven textures, and hoped to create a setting that would feel at once whimsical, eclectic and, of course, beautiful, too! They teamed up with Nicole Alexandra Design for the styling, FlorUnique for the florals and Circa Vintage Rentals + Dish Wish for the tabletop pieces + furniture rentals. And as you’re about to see in a sec, what these creatives came up with once they got together at Catalina View Gardens in Palos Verdes, California is sure to inspire couples everywhere!

Simple invites, by Allison Gamble, with subtle stitching details made the right first impression for this fun project.
