1. Rustic Elegant Wedding Perfection At Tennessee’s Candoro Marble Factory

    Of all the different styles one could put together when it comes to wedding design, a true favorite for me is rustic elegance. It is also, in my opinion, one that isn’t the easiest to pull off. As a rule, to craft a wedding like this, you need to start with an elegant wedding style as a foundation much the way TeamWedding, and The Bride Link have done. To then massage in rustic wedding décor, you need to understand the nuances that make it so, allowing that to guide your décor selections. Simply opting for a wood table isn’t quite enough. Choose the wrong one and it looks more ragged than sophisticated. French country style does an unbelievably gorgeous job of crafting rustic elegance. Polished, yet gently worn, natural and wholesome all while encompassing regal perfection, much the way the natural wood table and modern black plates from All Occasion Tent & Party Rentals do. Location is key, you can almost never have any sort of an elegant wedding without a venue that first exudes elegance, much like the one here at the incredible Candoro Marble Factory. Then there is the fashion, it’s pretty impossible to have an elegant wedding without stunning wedding attire choices that drip in style like the Gilded Gown and Regal Tuxedo showcased here. Driving this dreamy rustic elegant wedding home is the artful eye...

  2. Early Autumn Golden Hour Dream Forest Wedding At Historic Castle Rock

    There is an undeniable beauty to the light that falls just as the sun is setting, a light lovingly referred to as 'Golden Hour'.  A warm honey hue cast all around, the light in just the right place within the sky to create dreamy halos.  A time of year when golden hour is especially delicious is the end of summer, a time when fall ever so slightly begins to peek through.  Wedding photographer Rachel Fugate wanted to harness that earthly beauty, putting together a romantic styled shoot at the Historic Rock Castle that evoked a dark early autumn forest wedding feel.  Riding the line between a indie style meets haunting sophistication, the shoot serves as a love letter of inspiration to those looking to stylistically be their own.  Another key element at play that makes the dark forest wedding so successful is the hearty earthy nod found in elements like the two tier wedding cake adorned with blooms and berries, and an utterly to die for hand-tied bouquet by Hannah Jones.  Each capitalizes on elements derived from the earth, displayed in such a way that their true beauty and rich falling loving hues become stars all their own.  This late summer forest wedding is the stuff winter dreams are made of, the kind that leaves you swoony in the head for the beauty of things to come.

  4. Effortlessly Elegant Wedding With Undone Touches At Rancho Las Lomas

    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...
