Wedding Paper Divas Spring collection

21 Mar

Fellow paper fanatics, get ready to swoon. Wedding Paper Divas has a fresh new collection for spring and summer, and it’s Gorgeous with a capital G. Our very own Jillian got a sneak peek at the new collection when she spoke at the luncheon Wedding Paper Divas hosted in San Francisco last month. And since she couldn’t stop talking about it, we figured we should share it with the rest of you too…

The Spring/Summer collection draws on the loveliness of the season (hello, color) while taking classic themes and giving them a fresh twist. Some of the sweet new design elements you can see below include tri-fold wedding invitations, fun typographic layouts, and hints of shimmer and shine (including glam new foil options!). They don’t call them divas for nothing. These gals are at the top of the paper game.

The BHLDN for Wedding Paper Divas collection (seen above) beautifully mixes rich, feminine textures with graphic elements and handmade touches. They’ve also teamed up with bridal fashion designer Claire Pettibone for a collection brimming with vintage botanicals, woodland charm and love letter scripts.

Australian Bush Wedding Ideas

Australian Bush Wedding Ideas001 Australian Bush Wedding Ideas

The Australian bush wedding ideas that have come out of this incredible shoot from the talented Kristy Marek of Imbue Weddings and The One Day House are a beautiful way to spend an afternoon. Classic romance in the Australian bush- blush pink paired with fern, neutral furniture with plenty of texture and detailing. An elegant take on something so beautiful in itself.

Captured by Byron Loves Fawn and pulling together beautiful pieces from Jennifer Gifford Designs, 3rd Lady, Green Willow,With Love Stationery & Design, Cotton Blossom, Blissful Makeup, Rhylee PassfieldPeachy Vintage Collections, Covered Linen and Adorn Event Hire, Kristy was inspired by the theme of “fern and blush”.

She notes “The colour palette was neutral cream, white and taupe with beautiful blush pink. The touches of green, so evident in the bush setting came through in added touches of fern and greenery placed in vases to decorate the setting. The styling for this shoot was quite neutral to highlight the natural beauty of the marquee.”

Green Willow created loose, open floral arrangements. Kristy recalling “Green Willow did some beautiful designs using ferns and  Queen Anne’s Lace”.

The “Bride” was dressed in a pink bridal gown Kristy remarking, “The gown from Jennifer Gifford was classic in style but in a gorgeous light blush colour to match in with those amazing wood tones from The One Day Houses furniture.”

Guests are invited to relaxed under a shaded marquee filled with furniture in tones of taupe, cream and white. Kristy noting, “The Indian canvas marquee was the basis of the styling. We used that colour and the beautiful natural fabric as the inspiration behind everything. The marquee makes me think of a Jane Austen dinner party but it has this Indian feel as well. So we combined classic furniture with cane and brought in ferns (which I think are really Edwardian).” The marquee featuring natural cotton voile curtains which blow beautifully in the breeze.

The reception dinner table was kept simple – a beautiful botanical inspired table runner and napkins from Covered Linen  with white vases filled with ferns. Cane charger plates from Adorn Event Hire sat under white plates. Kristy notes ” We used a taupe and white leaf designed runner and napkins to add some interest to the table setting, setting off the natural cane of the charger plates. When you do something neutral it’s all about the textures, so there are touches of cane, wood, embroidered fabric, pressed tin (my fav… that wall!), sheepskin fur, sisal, jute and linen all tied together beautifully.”

Kelly + Will: A Rustic Chic Michigan Orchard Wedding by J & E Fusion Photography

20 Mar

Photos: J & E Fusion Photography; Second Shooter: Jonathan M Steinberg Photography; Event Planner: Tara McFaydyen; Bridal Gown: J.Crew; Bridal Shoes: Anthroplogie; Bride’s Rings: Hugo Kohl for Abra Cadabra; Groom’s Ring: Custom Mokume Gane by Debra Tapian; Hairstylist: Giovanni A’Balatti; Groom and groomsmen attire: J.Crew; Venue: The Frey Orchard; Officiant: Mike Schersten; Ceremony Musicians: Stringtown Trio; Invitations: Rock Paper Scissor; Flower: Yvonne Gorman; Rentals: Superior Party Rental; Cake: Iotis Even; Reception Music: The AV Pro, LLC; Caterer: Puerto Mex Latino Grill, Albright Swine Farms; Transportation: Stellar Access Shuttle

Kelly and Will were married at The Frey Orchard (her grandfather’s) in Adrian, Michigan on August, 24. The bride wore a simple thin-strap v-neck chiffon gown and accessorized with a floral wreath around her delicate updo. Her ‘maids donned casual above-the-knee yellow dresses in various styles and they carried wildflower bouquets. “We relied on what was around us for our colors,” Kelly said. “The wildflowers in bloom at the time were mostly yellow and purple.” The groom wore a tan three-piece suit with no tie, while his men wore tan dress pants, button-down shirts and suspenders. Following the ceremony guests made their way to the tent where they sat at cafeteria-style tables adorned with wildflower centerpieces that the bride, her mom and and aunt arranged. Guests danced along to a bluegrass band and took home s’more favors. “There are tons of distractions on your wedding day,” Kelly said. “But it’s ultimately about your bond, your partnership. Make sure you relish the day with that person because it will be gone in the blink of an eye.” See the full wedding here.

Barefoot and Bohemian: Wedding Dress Inspiration

20 Mar

There you are, strolling barefoot through the fields with wildflowers in your hair – a flowing gown trailing behind you. Sound appealing? If so, a Bohemian inspired wedding might just be for you!

During the late 1960′s and into the 1970′s, eclectic and alternative wedding dresses were favored by hippie brides. This look is all about embracing nature and tying in a few nostalgic touches (an ideal look for woodland or barn weddings!)

Boho wedding dresses are soft and capture the perfect balance between modern and vintage.  For a relaxed look, simple and flowing dresses with a streamlined silhouette can provide the perfect blank canvas. This is great for an alternative and laid back style, which can be amplified with stunning bohemian accessories. Lace, crochet and broderie anglaise touches are key features for this trend. They have a nostalgic quality that shows an appreciation for the past when combined with a contemporary dress. These details can be seen in sleeves, trims and bridal shawls. A wedding dress with sleeves is another option; asymmetrical, flowing and lace sleeves all highlight the 1970′s mood.

We’ve rounded up a few gorgeous examples of the boho look:

How amazing are all of these floral crowns? This is reason in itself to opt for this trend. 1960′s and 70′s brides tied flowers in their braids and made flower chains to wear in their hair. Floral crowns are bold, earthy and really focus on the important element of embracing nature. Bold blooms create a focal point especially when paired with a matching bouquet. For a more subtle look, small flowers woven into the hair or worn with a headband still taps into this look.

Juliet-cap veils and braided headbands are also stunning accessory options. For a stripped back look like this, delicate jewelry will work best. To really embrace this trend, nothing is stopping you from going barefoot!

Caroline & David | New England Wedding at LeBelle Winery

19 Mar

This is one of those weddings that I wish I could live in… the envelope liners alone are enough to inspire! Then there’s the whole invitation suite from Select vendor, Swiss Cottage Designs, the lush flowers by Poppies & Posies, the bride’s romantic Juliet veil from Twigs & Honey, and to top it all off, Jen Huang‘s incredibly romantic photos from the day…

The bride’s gorgeous bouquet included bright pink peonies, peach garden roses, and clematis. The groom wore a rosemary boutonniere.

Says the bride, “I drew inspiration from lots of sources and collected them all on a Pinterest board. After some time, the loose theme that came together was ‘Italian Garden.’ This theme best described for me the romantic, natural, and simple elegance of the design and decor choices that I made, and it inspired me to pull together a color palette of creams, greens, and lavender.”

“The best advice I received was to try to live in the moment despite the whirlwind going on around me,” says Caroline. ”I did my best!”

Why did you choose this location for your wedding?  After David and I decided we were going to celebrate our wedding in southern New Hampshire, near my hometown, we did a weekend of venue tours and didn’t fall in love with any of them. A lovely venue in Groton, Massachusetts, the Barn at Gibbet Hill, was booked until the fall of 2013 or into 2014 and we didn’t want to wait that long. In the end, we decided to go with LaBelle Winery, a sister location to the Barn at Gibbet Hill that was still under construction and hadn’t yet hosted a single wedding!

What was your favorite moment or part of the day?  My favorite moments of the whole wedding weekend were all the opportunities to spend time with family and old friends. David and I felt blessed that so many people made the trip from far and wide to attend our wedding, and we cherished the experience of gathering all the people we love around us to celebrate.

Did you include any traditions in your wedding?  The traditions we included were religious ones. The ceremony was an interfaith service that combined Jewish and Episcopalian elements. We also signed a ketubah, said our vows beneath a chuppah, broke the glass, and danced the Horah.

What advice do you have for other brides?  I’d recommend giving serious consideration to changing into a second dress for the dancing. Since I splurged on my dress, I decided wear it all night, but unfortunately it wasn’t conducive to really getting down on the dance floor and I wished I was more comfortable!

Do you have any budget tips for other brides?  As I’m sure all brides come to realize, it’s really tough to stay within the budget. My approach was to spend what it took to hire a few essential vendors whose work I loved. We decided to forgo other vendors entirely. For example, we hired an incredible photographer but did not hire a videographer.

Industrial Botanical Bash

19 Mar

It’s been a long time between inspirations and I have missed pulling together the ideas and concepts that float about my brain. I dug this half completed one that I started last year and loved it again immediately. I love the contrast of the dark grey – the cement, the hard wire chairs, the untouched spaces with the trailing floral arrangements and rich jewel toned blooms.

Adding industrial but fun touches like black taper candles, paper flag escort tags, neon signs and then the femininity of beautiful floral hairpieces, petal adorned gowns and elegant calligraphy make this industrial botanical wedding inspiration board an elegant beauty.
