What could spell dark romance better than a moody snow filled woodland world as your stage?

Expressing a dark romance feel, everything about this delicious elopement is style driven. Wedding designer A Pretty Styled Life brought the drama in the from of grandeur & sophistication. Working with a dark palette centered around black & gold with deep burgundy accents, wedding decor details were chosen that echoed an artistic mod edge.

Sweet treats in the form of sugar dusted donuts, chocolate dipped red velvet Oreo's and a petite gold wedding cake found the perfect home among the snow dusted surroundings.

Rustic chic with a dash of whimsical boho is the perfect way to describe this dreamy kinfolk wedding nestled among the trees at White Rock Lake. Looking to evoke an elevated down home feel, a team of Texas wedding pros including wedding photographer Rachel Meagan Photography and floral & event designer Shannon Rose Events created the perfect fall wedding inspiration shoot. With a focus on texture and movement, unique areas were created within the sprawling park grounds. Noshes, both sweet and savory, were displayed on wood & marble platters placed on top of an antique trunk which was finished with vintage lace. A chocolate naked wedding cake was the perfect choice, echoing the moody the color scheme, topped with a gold calligraphy style note of love. To give the kinfolk wedding a relaxed feel, the team worked with a shorter table opting for gold metal ottoman seating paired with Mexican blankets. Charcoal plates offered moody contrast to a white table runner which was then dotted with gold accents throughout the table. The final piece to the kinfolk wedding puzzle was the ever delicious golden hour time of day, drenching each moment in savory gold goodness!

I imagine classic and timeless are two wedding descriptors that designers hear from brides all the time. While these two wedding themes are forever mainstays it's their kissing cousin that is getting all the glory lately! An effortlessly elegant wedding releases some of the restraints that a classic wedding may have, allowing for a wedding design that dips its toe into perfectly undone. Wedding event planner A Sweetpea Event & Celebration teamed up with wedding photographer Halleigh Hill Photography to bring to life a gorgeously elegant wedding, set al fresco at Rancho Las Lomas. To hone in on the effortless elegance, a delicate soft feminine palette was used with a heavy emphasis on texture as a focal point. Florist Upton Grey Floral got the call to action, working with generous blooms in the form of David Austin "Juliet" Garden Roses, blush and cream Peonies, along side peach Poppies for a wild garden like bouquet for our pale pink wedding dress bride. Dialing up the romance, the most perfectly elegant wedding table was set, featuring a soft gray wood table with raw silk runner. Dotting the tablescape was a mix of tall gold candelabras & candle sticks accented by ornately framed mirror table numbers. Woven into the silk garland runner were elements of Eucalyptus, Pearl Acacia, and Olive Branches...
