The Hummingbird Nest Ranch venue in Los Angeles County provided the most perfect backdrop for this jewel-toned modern styled shoot. With candles and the prettiest bold-colored florals, we just can’t get over how beautiful this shoot is!

Whimsical Maryland Wedding at Woodend Sanctuary

whimsical-wedding-inspiration-shoot-blog-vendors

If the boutonniere bar is any indication of just how fun and whimsical this wedding is then you are in for quite the treat. From the gobs of cool stationery by Little Bit Heart  right through to the endless parade of pretty details by Karson Butler Events or Holly Heider Chapple’s happy florals, this is whimsy done in such an elegant way. But we’ll let Jodi Miller’s images speak for themselves. See them all right here.

From the Bride… Aaron and I met in Chinatown in Washington, DC. I went with a group of friends to see Mamma Mia and my friends insisted to go dancing afterward. Aaron was out with a friend who was PCSing to another military post. He spotted me not dancing and struck up a conversation. Our first date was dinner and a movie in Chinatown, but we took too long talking over dinner and missed the movie! We eventually saw it on our second date 🙂

Aaron proposed over the phone! He was stationed in San Antonio and I was in Washington (our third year of being apart). He got down on one knee when he was in town the next month (after we chose a ring together).

We designed a wedding with Karson Butler Events that was casual, creative and a fun party for all of our friends and family to enjoy. I love crafting, stationery, lettering, calligraphy and all of those lovely things!

From Karson Butler Events… Danielle also wanted a touch of DIY which we loved! She had participated in a calligraphy class and hand lettered all the playful save the dates herself. When it came time to select her wedding calligrapher, we knew her instructor Michele at Meant To Be Calligraphy was the perfect choice for her invites and day-of paper goods! (Talk about full circle! Of course, Michele was honored!

Some of our favorite design elements from their wedding included:

*A Boutonniere Bar escort card display for all the guests – Guests loved wearing their special boutonnieres and the tags let guests know what table they were seated at! We loved dreaming this idea up and all our creative partners were such troopers in helping us bring this to life!

*Gorgeous blooms – Holly Heider Chapple’s flowers speak for themselves – drop dead gorgeous!! And when a rain storm brought the ceremony inside at the last minute (despite forecasts showing 0% chance), Holly’s team were all-stars at repurposing the flowers to decorate the mantle before guests arrived! Proof that even a plan B can be gorgeous!

*Creative paper goods – Our bride LOVED paper & calligraphy, so we partnered with Little Bit Heart on a custom invitation suite that mixed Danielle’s favorite design elements. The save-the-dates even had a scratch off to show where the wedding location would be – so fun! The welcome baskets perfectly complimented the colorful paper goods too.

FRESH SPRING WEDDING IDEAS ON THE RIVER

AS SEEN ON Magnolia Rouge

 

Robyn from BARE ROOT FLORA created some lush and wild arrangements to complement the incredible beauty of River Bend. Using a fresh and lovely spring colour palette, deeper tones were added in for a bit of moodiness and sophistication. Textural pincushion protea, artichokes and figs were a perfect contrast to the softer blooms of peonies, ranunculus, roses, sweet peas, poppies, azalea and perfect parrot tulips. Gorgeous olive, eucalyptus and plum foliages gave the flowers beautiful movement. The element of terracotta added an earthy feature and is a perfect foil to the cliff walls reaching high above the river.

This River Wild inspiration by RACHEL HAVEL and designer A VINTAGE AFFAIR is full of bright, warm colours, organic elements, and touches of elegance flowing within every touch. The landscape of the Lyons River Bend offers a serene and peaceful environment allowing every colourful detail to shine.

Nothing says home quite like getting married in your backyard. Nico and Ryan exchanged sweet vows on a sunny day in June on a private family ranch in Somis, CA. Nico’s palette of white, creme and tons of lush and wild greenery was the perfect match for this rustic themed wedding.
