When something dark and dreamy comes my way I always get a little more excited. Weddings are always thought of as white, bright, and full tilt classic storybook. The problem is that that particular mindset only truly appeals to a selection of bride, not everyone. I am delighted to be able to share a bridal session that features wonderfully moody bridal style that is inspired by a fairy tale with a bit of edge photographed by Magdalene Photography. This beauty is shoot on location at the secret garden like oasis of Flora Flowershop in Door County, Wisconsin. Featuring a voluminous Mori Lee wedding dress from I Do Bridal of sparkling tulle, our bride begins her journey in a gathered cathedral veil crafted to create a hair fascinator like effect. As the shoot progresses, our bride trades in her more formal veil for a wild and free organic floral crown. Her loose flowing locks and darker makeup by A&A Artistry, pick up on the more sultry dramatic cues, giving us relief from the more storied white weddings we see so often. This moody bridal session is a delight, something I know will appeal to all brides looking for an alternative to the standard weddings we see each day.
With a touch of french country provincial flair, today's gorgeously styled tablescapes are inspired by the unique linens and table runners from Candy Crush Shop. Playing with a mix of lace, sequin and linen runners, the team, lead by wedding event designer Petite Pomme Event Design, crafted three elegant table settings that embody a dreamy serenity blue & rose quartz wedding. Furniture, china, and vintage rentals in the form of an old trunk, wooden tables and mixed chairs from Trunks & Tales beautifully came together to create three distinct looks, each gorgeously classic and wonderfully chic. Whether its blue glass goblets or ceramic plates & cups filled with delicate blooms, there is something ever so perfect about each. Wedding florist Fringe Flower Company did a beautiful job crafting floral designs that complimented each table setting design using low centerpieces that drew out the beauty to a serenity blue & rose quartz wedding. To perfectly compliment the dreamy orchard setting, Batter Up Cakery put together the most gorgeously sophisticated 4 tier buttercream whipped wedding cake, accented by wisps of rosy watercolor...

A late winter wedding with a classic touch set in Virginia seems like a page straight out of a movie script. Hoping to inject a fresh take on a stately Virginia wedding, a talented crew of wedding pros got together to create! Lead by Kayla Dreesen, refined wedding bouquets and petite arrangements were put together by Eight Tree Street while gorgeous rental pieces from Bella Villa Rentals supplied a hint of Victorian charm. Northern VA & Washington D.C. area photographer Ali McLaughlin Photography was the last piece to the puzzle, capturing each sweet moment. The focus of this styled winter wedding is centered around a bride and her two bridesmaids, in elegant romantic winter wedding bridal looks. Hair is kept loose and flowing, keeping shoulders warm against the freezing temps at Rixey Manor, while wraps and stoles do the heavy lifting. Inside is a sweet little dinner setup with vintage decor accents as well as a super cute hot chocolate bar for the girls to sip on. All in all, a styled winter wedding that is easy to crush on!
The idea of a classic wedding set in spring has a certain warm and cozy feel to it! Virginia wedding photographer Heather Michelle Photography wanted to put together a spring wedding that highlighted gold metallic, all the while pairing it with a something equally soft and cool such as robin's egg blue. Taking a step off the more traditional wedding path, donuts from Sugar Shack Donuts are a shining star, dressed in hues of natural bake, petal pink & robin's egg of course! The sweetness to this classic wedding isn't just elements filled with sugar! From the Victorian inspired lounge area from Paisley & Jade dressed in blues to the rustic row boat that our couple canoodles in, details like this help fill this classic wedding with whimsy & style. Excuse me now while I go make a donut run, this feature is already inspiring!
