Inspired by William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, a team of local West Virginia wedding pros turned The Carriage House into a wonderfully romantic winter wedding. Working with rich textures like fur and velvet, a complimentary color palette of deep reds and blush pinks were selected to breathe life into their winter wedding. A stunning vintage soft pink tufted couch from The Mustard Couch created the most gorgeous portrait opportunity, perfect for canoodling. Wanting to taking a playful turn, an outdoor reception table was set, lined with rich greens dotted by organic detailing such as picturesque pomegranates. Really giving off the romantic storybook feel is combination of stone locale in the Carriage House plus our bride's stunning long sleeved full skirt Hayley Paige. Maybe its just me, but this is the kind of winter wedding everyone goes nuts about!
If ever there was a love song to indie wedding seekers, this wonderful styled shoot from wedding photographer Caitlin Trickett Photography at the uniquely cool Dandy Roll print shop, just might be it. Dandy Roll, collects and sells antique prints and maps dating back to the early 1900's. The shop has a working printing press, and uses reclaimed barn wood to make gorgeous frames. Taking a cue from their eclectic vintage surroundings filled of prints and poetry books, the team imagined the bride as a poet who wondered into her own wedding. Bringing on the sense of a boho indie wedding, a sweet heart table was set near the large shop front windows, while the table was adorned with rustic nosh detailing, accented by shop prints of course! Much like a true indie bride would be, our poet dons a simple white dress from Anthro, perfectly paired with vintage brown shoes. There is a causal coolness to this indie wedding that is inescapable, the kind that no matter how hard you try, you simply can not replicate, it just is. The locale is incredible, the table divine and the style.... utter indie wedding perfection.
In my time I have seen some incredible Spanish weddings. No matter what the artistic direction might be, there are two elements always present, style & passion. When wedding planner La Puesta en Escena sent this red essence Spanish wedding my way, set in the unique locale of a poinsettia farm, I was immediately captivated by all it had to offer. The location, the styling, the incredibly unique bouquet and the delicious moodiness with which it was all captured spoke to me. I also love the insight on why the location was so choice, "The poinsettia, so recognized as a Christmas plant, has a lot of work, (to become a full size plant) which made me think about a wedding. It needs 6 months of preparation, from planting the cutting until it starts to bloom. All this taking care of it with care and nutrients." Joined by Spanish wedding photographer Carlos Lucca Fotografo, the team pulled together a dark & wondrous styled shoot that spills of moody love and deep red passion. While each image speaks for itself in this moody Spanish wedding, do not miss the in's and out's of why each element was chosen after the gallery. This is not your cookie cutter wedding, and for that, I could not love it anymore than I currently do.

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...
