You know the feeling you get when two of your favorite things collide, and magic happens? That’s exactly how we feel about today’s modern white wedding inspiration. Marie Alsleben bottled up everything so captivating about luxe style, and brought in all those feel-good, breezy design elements of boho weddings (hello, pampas grass). It’s luxe meets boho…and at quite a historic setting!
There couldn’t be a cooler, more gorgeous + historic setting for this editorial than Klosterruine Heisterbach. The ruins of this ceremony spot made up a Cistercian abbey in the mountains some 800 years ago. The century-old stones and architecture really make this a unique and romantic spot for all the dreamy, modern and clean wedding inspiration.
With floating fabrics and soft, light colors, you’ll get lost in another time scrolling through these modern white wedding designs. From orchid overload (in the best way) to a sparkly wedding gown and more – Kathrin Krok didn’t miss a thing:
Wow, light and airy starts here with Nicnillas Ink. This modern white wedding invitation suite is beautiful with an organic edge to it (literally).
Nude Wedding Dress with Major Sparkle
Just a gorgeous cascade of white out flowers from Shabby Chic Events. We love the very, very soft pink roses mixed in, too!
The Rosa gown, designed by Catherine Deane, radiates modern romance. Intricately sequin, sheer tulle embodies this tour-de-force of glamour. Dramatic billowing sleeves are balanced by the v-neckline and luscious open back. So epic against the historic ruins.

To illustrate how well a modern white wedding plays into delicate romance, Der Brautsalon styled this gorgeous braid + hairpiece.
Artful Cake Among The Ruins
No this towering creation cannot be cake. It cannot be cake. It’s art! April Rose Cake Art designed this masterpiece – perfectly playing into the modern romance of it all. With soft pink, romantic rosettes and structured designs, it’s so exceptional.
