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...
Today's feature from South Carolina florist and wedding designer Culpepper Designs is pretty much a checklist for what I am loving these days. Gorgeous white washed industrial locale, generous overflowing floral arrangements topped heavy with lush greens, a slightly boho feel, all done with a chic refined hand! Shoot on location by the artful eye of wedding photographer Anna Duncan Photography at Southern Bleachery, the team crafted a world of sophistication in an eco-chic palette of mixed greens, soft ivory with dashes of pink. A rustic wood table served as a focal point, set with a tablescape that drew on gold detailing in the form of candle sticks, trays and metal work pieces intermixed with high and low centerpieces, giving the table the perfect amount of drama. Gold chargers and flatware for each place setting perfectly played off the dreamy tablescape while handcrafted wood Mr & Mrs signs complimented the stately rustic wood table. Hair & Makeup Artist Cotton Rouge did a gorgeous job giving each girl a unique yet wonderfully cohesive look that played up the modern boho feel of the open back wedding dresses and gorgeous 2 piece wedding dress creation. The shoot overall is simply beyond, something I know I can't wait to pin every moment of and savor!

Everyone's definition of a romantic setting varies slightly, but my word it is hard to argue with a gorgeous industrial loft setting like the one at Seattle's own Axis Pioneer Square! Spearheaded by the owner of Seattle's new specialty rental company Fanciful Rentals, a romantic candle lite loft wedding was crafted featuring a mix of antique furniture and decor. Working with a strong wedding color palette of blush, red & ivory, vintage blue floral china and a steel grey linen were choosen as the perfect counterbalance to soften. Playing off the blue floral found in the table setting, a highlight to the loft wedding design was a light beige love seat lounge accented by 2 gorgeous stately toile pillows! As if details like taper candles and vintage champagne flutes filled with rose champagne weren't enough, the team really embodied romance for this styled loft wedding utilizing a lace top BHLDN wedding dress and understated accessories. The last piece to the puzzle, tying the loft wedding together, were the bold florals from Verde & Co. that were equal parts fresh and modern. The beauty to a loft wedding is how the space can transform into just about anything you dream up. Easily one of the most versatile locales, its no wonder that these urban wedding venues are such a prize!

Metropolitan weddings can easily be some of the most fantastic as you're surrounded in a metropolis filled environment with unique and diverse sub-worlds all around you. Kayla Broadway knew the moment she visited St. Louis's NEO on Locust that it had the perfect loft like feel for her shabby chic vintage wedding to Jordan McGaughey. The loft space was filled with old school detailing from chicken wire hung antique key escort cards to picture frame highlighted centerpieces of taper candle dripping candelabras and mixed bottle blooms. For the perfect juxtaposition of a modern urban world, Kayla & Jordan selected the enchanting UMSL Provincial House Chapel filled of marble, vaulted ceilings & old church opulence for their ceremony, resulting a dreamy mix of current day meets rich tradition & beauty.
