Do you remember those choose your own adventure books from your childhood? Well today, my friends, we’re doing something a little similar. But this adventure ends with a happily ever after—and one that is styled to perfection, we might add!
Do you have an affinity for all things modern and elegant? Perhaps you like minimalism, but with a pop of color? Well then, we have a feeling you’re going to love Laurel Street Events take on a sort of classic wedding. Or…do you prefer things to be a little unique, different. Would you forgo the traditional white wedding dress, say for something in a bold hue? Do you have a penchant for bohemian stylings and a more of a wild side? Then you’re going to love the wild + free look today!
Who knows—you might end up loving elements from both styles…we can’t wait to hear what you think! Now, let’s take a gander at all the photos snapped by Lindsay Hackney at The Joshua Tree House!
If you’re wanting to mix two different styles, it works well to go with a minimal color palette in most places, and then mix in bold pops elsewhere. Isn’t this invitation suite from AMR Calligraphy so pretty? The yellow florals added even more dimension and tied in hues you’ll see later on… :)
Lindsay Hackney shares: One of the things I hear so often from couples these days is that they want an intimate ceremony, but they also don’t want to miss out on a more traditional celebration with loved ones. Who says you can’t do both?
Looking so dapper in this J.Crew ensemble!
Isn’t that BHLDN dress a dream?
A Classic Tablescape
Bringing in wood accents and neutral elements, along with all the dazzling florals from Apotheca Flower Shoppe, this darling tablescape could work with so many different styles!
We’re big fans of the mustard hues to add playful pops to the otherwise minimalistic look.
The best way to round out a tablescape? Adding a copious amount of fruits, of course!!
And then there was the masterpiece of a cake by Autumn Nomad!
Wild + Free
The transformation for the bride took just minutes with the help of her hair and makeup team, Hair by Kayti + Jenny Face!
To switch up the look, the bride switched in to this gold gown from Leanne Marshall.
Saving this hairstyle FOREVER!! We’re digging that messy fishtail!
Making Use of the Environment
The backdrop was kept minimal in order to let the surrounding environment shine.
The same bouquet from Apotheca Flower Shoppe, but it takes on a whole new look when complemented by the gold gown!

Flowers for Days
Perhaps you want both a modern and classic look…but then more bohemian portraits with your love. This here is proof that you can quickly switch things up with just a few changes (hair, makeup, + dress!)
It’s amazing how the lighting made such a difference to the appearance of the tablescape!
Like a dream! So, we’d love to hear—do you prefer the modern + classic look, or would you rock the more wild + free one? Perhaps you’re inspired to do both? Let us know in the comments below!
