The heavens have inspired the people of the world for centuries. Whether its the twinkle in the sky, the beauty of the twilight colors or the mystique of another place so many worlds away, our heads swim with their euphoric enchantment. Its only fitting that such a thing would influence and inspire the wedding worlds as well. The idea of a celestial wedding brings a jewel tone palette, a dash of metallic detailing, and bevvy of geometric inspiration. When our friends at Love Inc saw David’s Bridal Ruffle Trim Faux Wrap Bridesmaid Dress collection, they knew a celestial wedding was the perfect way to showcase the figure loving bridesmaid dresses, no matter your style preference, shape, size or budget.
Inspired by real life couple Jennifer and Chris, who married in the Dominican Republic, a team of Hudson Valley wedding vendors wanted to create seasonless styled tropical wedding inspiration. The result is a dreamy little minimalist loft wedding that blends a modern atmosphere with tropical fauna. Freeing themselves from seasonal restraints, the design evokes a windswept outdoor aesthetic in a fresh urban way by housing Lady Slipper Orchid stems in solitary glass vessels by the plenty. The bride's look is another nod to tropics, a lace wedding dress that features a convertible skirt, something perfect for tropical destination weddings. Keeping in the more modern loft wedding spirit, a lace overlay from BHLDN was added, giving the overall look a more timeless, classic feel. Simple, delicate, well appointed details are the touches that bring this minimalist loft wedding to life. There is a beauty in the retrain and flavor in the dash of color.
Iceland is one of those magical wanderlust locales. A top travel destination, a sure bucket list item for most. So many photographers and creatives that I know actively seek out an Iceland adventure, its no surprise that Iceland elopements are all kinds of utter perfection. Didi and Nick have an adventurous spirit yet wanted a intimate day spent in a special world that felt like it was created just for them. Teaming up with wedding photographer Your Adventure Wedding, the trio were on the hunt for the most amazing of locations. Seeking out private off the beaten path areas for their Iceland elopement, the couple explored a stunning secret waterfall, offbeat canyons, and an incredible mountain vista locale. The result is an Iceland elopement that is storybook perfection, filled with lush green Iceland dreams!
For those not faint of heart, opting to shoot during inclement weather can offer up some incredible rewards. Often the skies are wondrously moody, the air unsettled potentially leading to fog and mist while the wind... the wind can be absolutely everything. While shooting during intense weather wasn't the original plan, when weather struck, wedding photographer Avonné Photography did not back down. Instead she embraced the brutal weather Great Orme turning the shoot into a beautifully stormy wintry UK wedding bridal session. The beauty to the shoot overall is how powerful of a force nature plays into each and every moment, serving to heighten and enhance each design choice. From the simple sleek J.Crew wedding dress that plays tag in the wind, to the thick wool tartan blanket warped around the bride juxtaposed to the angry winds. A collection of dark moody blooms were assembled into a wild and free bouquet, the perfect pairing to this UK wedding inspiro. No matter how hard we try to plan, be it a real wedding or one for a photo shoot, weather is the one aspect you can never control. Try not to get dishearten by it, instead embrace the elements as much as you can and turn them into your 12th man.
