North Carolina’s Old Sheldon Church Ruins Wedding Sunset Bridals

 845     09.15.2017 9:58 am

Whenever I travel there is a particular place I seek out to visit if they exist in the area, ruins.  There is something so incredibly enchanting about them.  The mix of man made structure, left undone, overtaken by nature.  Over-sized windows that now serve as doorways, a preview into the next landscape that lays just around the corner.  I have long since been infatuated with the idea of a ruins wedding.   When real bride Lexi, along with wedding photographer Casey Hendrickson Photography, set off for her portrait session, they headed to the dreamy North Carolina hideaway of Old Sheldon Church Ruins.  Dripping in southern bride elegance, Lexi’s look is one that is perfectly on trend.  From a draped & cinched silhouette wedding dress, to the pulled apart braid wrapped around her neck, dotted with baby’s breath.  The duo took over the ruins around golden hour only to be meet with severe thunderstorms & the threat of tornado.  Not ones to back down easily, they instead yielded the inclement weather into artistry, resulting in a wonderfully romantic ruins wedding dream.

Lightbox Like Minimalist Glam South African Wedding

 844     09.11.2017 8:30 am

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!

Sun-drenched Fall Bohemian Bridal Style On The Chesapeake Bay

 843     09.08.2017 11:21 am

Whether you’re a fan or not, fall is coming here in the US.  With fall’s arrival so does the power of golden hour in all its color drenching glory.  When three wedding pros from Maryland met up for the first time they knew immediately that they had to create together and create they did!  Wedding photographer Manda Weaver Photography headed to the coastal shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club for a swoon-worthy bohemian bridal style inspiration shoot.  Florist Amy Nicole Floral took the bohemian bridal spirit to heart, gathering a mix of blooms in an untamed way, true to the bohemian nature.  Calligrapher & stationery designer Calligraphette Co crafted a handwritten invitation suite that was gorgeously captured fall romance.  The end result is a golden pink kiss of wind swept bay breezed hair with moments plucked straight out of your favorite dream.  Fall is here, but can we really be that mad about it if this is how we toy with her??

Colors of Freedom Inspired Style For Fall

 842     09.01.2017 8:30 am

One of my absolutely favorite places to look for wedding inspiration are places that are anything but wedding related.  There is something so refreshing about looking outside of a particular genera, essentially seeing how the other half lives if you will.  Elements in women’s style such as hair and makeup can be transported from any glossy page, simply insert occasion/event here.  Even attire, like the gorgeous dark floral beauties here, speak to occasions such as bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, engagement photos and more.  Love a gorgeous lip, cant get enough of a certain curl, who cares under what pretense you find that inspiration, all that matters IS that your being inspired.  When Colors of Freedom from Passionate Wedding Photography came my way I was down right giddy.  Fresh, bold editorial yumminess that oozed style perfection. Women’s fashion is all about style and is unique as it is organic in evolution.  This little editorial spread features 5 moody dark floral loving looks that are all kinds of style everything.  While the dresses are divine, its the unapologetic bold red lip and wind loving pencil perfect locks that I cant get enough of.  The making to any great style is one that captures perfection all while harnessing effortless ease, like you didnt care, but we know you soooo did and we love you for it.

“We wanted the wedding to reflect us as a couple. We are vibrant, inclusive, and love a good party! So much of life is serious and stressful and we wanted our day to be free from that as much as possible. Most of all we wanted the day to be fun.  We live in the Orlando area and really love Winter Park specifically. It’s an area with a lovely downtown, very walkable, central to many shops and restaurants, and a lot of history. We knew that we wanted to have our wedding and reception at the Winter Park Farmers’ Market because it’s a beautiful old train station that’s a blank canvas.  Neither of us is a style maven, but we knew what we liked and we were able to put together a team of vendors who executed our vision to perfection.”

“We chose to do a cake bar with 5 different cakes from Fig & Flower Bakery. Olivia, the owner, put just as much care and love into the presentation of her cakes as she does in the taste. The cake that we cut was a delicious lemon & lavender flavor. We also had red velvet, honey lavender fig, vanilla almond, and coconut. Each flavor was just as lovely and delicious as they sound.”

“The minute you decide to have a wedding, it’s no longer just about you and your future spouse. It’s now about you two and all of the people that you’re inviting. While you should definitely make the day “yours” and personal, make sure you make it enjoyable for your guests as well. If everyone around you is having a good time it’s not going to matter that you opted for the less expensive escort cards or table linens.”
