1. Huntsman Inspired Fantasy Woodland Wedding

    As we shift away from the summer months, heading into the fall wedding season, there is a playful spirit that takes over.  Hollywood is a fantastic source of inspiration for all things, those especially wedding.  Woodland weddings are a perfect place to harness the fall energy while offering up a playland to work with.  A group of California wedding pros got together, wanting to bring to life a Hollywood inspired fairy tale wedding, Snow White & The Huntsman.  Taking a cue from fantasy, the team decided to articulate their vision into a woodland wedding filled with antique decor & furnishings that spoke to a time long ago.  Working with pieces from a byfone era, elements like heirloom china & jewelry from Koryn of Intimate Gatherings grandmother were used. Dipping into fall's own hues, berries and blushes from The Wild Floral Co dotted the warm tone surroundings.  Wanting to capture the true adventurous nature to the cinematic revision, two stunning wedding dresses dance in the dappled woodland light playing beautifully on the lighter and darker side of the story.  Bringing everything together, Victoria Johansson Photography artfully captured each savory little detail, giving life to the fairy tale story.

  2. Whimsical Treats In This Moody Harry Potter Wedding

    I'll be honest, when I first received this submission I thought to myself, Harry Potter?  I struggled back-and-forth with the idea, thinking had the moment passed for a Harry Potter wedding, was it long gone now?  As I made my way through the styled shoot I began to take note of beautifully arranged florals by marigold + Moss featuring choice blooms in lush dark hues.  I saw table top decor from Bon Goût Party Deco styled by Just Styling executed with refined elegance and a graceful touch of class. Then I saw that piece de resistance to this Harry Potter wedding, a set featuring floating candles that decorated the air above and I knew I was hooked. Whether or not you're someone looking to be directly inspired by Harry Potter or someone that simply loves a sense of whimsy, this stylish take on magical design is up just about everyone's alley.  In the perfect moody color palette the shoot dances on dream inspiring details, allowing your senses to do the heavy lifting.  The spirit to gem is captured by wedding photographer Diana Bello Studio and does a treat of a job inspiring future brides no matter the direct influence!

  3. Lightbox Like Minimalist Glam South African Wedding

    Sometimes it feels like there are a million and one things to consider when planning a wedding.  For anyone that is in love with the idea of a glam wedding, but not all of the extra that goes with, consider a minimalist glam take like this metallic infused South African wedding!  With an eye on the gorgeous blank slate event space of The Square Cube, a team of South African wedding pros brought sparkle and sophistication with a few choice pieces.  The key to all glam weddings is shine, something this team brought to life by working with a sequin tablecloth and metallic details.  No South African wedding would be complete without vibrant proteas, in hues that echoed the pink palette.  The beauty to this gem is in what isn't there, the clever choice of sparing decor, allowing shine and reflection to fill the towering space making for a light and dreamy South African wedding!

  4. Art School Cool Urban Hipster Wedding

    Art school cool. It sounds like something you say when you're trying to be clever, however being an art school alumni myself, I can attest, art school cool is indeed a very real thing! Easily sliding in to the world of all things hipster, an art school hipster wedding is pretty much the stuff that modern millennial dreams are made. During last fall's New York Bridal Fashion Week, Aisle Society & Minted hosted a gala that played off the very idea of diversity in the world of weddings, head on. Showcasing inspiration from a beach wedding brought to life complete with sand and palm trees, to a rustic mountain wedding filled with log seating weighing in the 100's of pounds. One faction of the diversity was a uniquely cool art school hipster wedding that paid homage to the collection of boho fair that might typically dress a room. From walls lined with indie art dripping in greens by Sachi Rose Design, to re-purposed trophy's that spoke to achievement, details like vintage vinyl and metal tables breathed life into the whole hipster wedding. In the spirit of oneness meets technology, an unique guest experience was set up via the Wending Machines, which allowed guests to hand select the very items they received as wedding gifts a la vending machine. Each moment was captured in perfectly moody detail...
