Romantic, Earthy and Rustic Wedding

When it came to pulling together the fine details of the day, the couple enlisted the help of wedding planner Alexandra Kolendrianos. “Alexandra was incredible,” says the bride. “Our wedding would not have been as wonderful without her.” Brianne found most of her big-day inspiration on Pinterest. “It was my best friend from the moment we got engaged!” she says. After a quick brainstorming session with both Alexandra and Mindy Rice of Mindy Rice Floral and Event Design, Brianne trusted that their visions were aligned. She says, “They completely understood the style and vibe. We really wanted the venue to speak for itself and create a feeling around that.” For the flowers, the bride wanted a collection of muted, earthy tones with a fresh, romantic feeling.

Brianne opted for a body-skimming column of ivory lace of Claire Pettibone, a designer that perfectly captured the ethereal, not-too-girly femininity she desired. “The Claire Pettibone flagship store is right in Los Angeles and I ended up falling in love with the first dress I tried (out of 10 styles),” says the bride. To satisfy the fashion leanings of her 9 attendants, Brianne turned to the cult label Stone Cold Fox to design custom-made silk dresses. “I was most concerned about finding bridesmaid dresses that had traditional elements but weren’t cliche,” says the bride. “Stone Cold Fox came to mind because their aesthetic is one that I love and wear everyday in my life: relaxed, bohemian, and never cookie-cutter.” After settling on a palette of pale pink, rose and peach, they designed three different shapes: off-the-shoulder, scooped back and strapless, all sharing a common hand knit lace bodice.

Wednesday Pinspirations

So excited to announce Wednesday Pinspirations!  I'm constantly browsing pinterest and see SO many things I absolutely adore and would love to share with you! Here is the first set: 

Shabby Chic Handmade Wedding Cake Table
How adorable is this wedding cake table!?  It could be so versatile and could be used for several different wedding applications such as a candy table, a picture table, a guest book or guest tree table, etc, etc, etc!  See the original pin here.

Oh how I <3 this!  I love to see dogs and other animals featured in weddings!  Not to mention her dress is so beautiful! See original pin here.

Using barrels as a table stand for a dessert bar is such a great idea and adds a rustic feel to the wedding!  Loving the hanging light as well!  See original pin here.

How beautiful is this!?  And they used the 2013 wedding color of the year which is emerald!  Mint/emerald with light pinks and gold will be SO huge in 2013.  I've already seen many, many uses of these colors! See original pin here.

Here's another beautiful use of the mint/emerald, light pinks, and gold on a wedding cake!  Original pin here.

Barn weddings were hugely popular in 2012 and I believe will remain popular into 2013.  Rustic weddings are my personal favorite and I love to see different decorations and uses of rustic decor.  The chandeliers give the rustic barn a more formal touch and add to the elegance.  So beautiful!  See original pin here.

Well, that's all for our first installment of Wednesday Pinspirations.  Don't forget to checkout our etsy shop through the link at the top of the page to see our beautiful, handmade wedding stationary and also like our Facebook page to stay on top of current promotions and new designs!

Vintage Valentine's Day Wedding by Hey Gorgeous Events + Elizabeth In Love Photography

It can be tricky creating a pink-infused wedding without it falling into princess birthday party territory but Hey Gorgeous, Events by Rhiannon Nicole totally nailed it with this sweet, feminine, vintage-inspired photo shoot. Heart-shaped cookies, vintage tumblers and striped barber straws are the perfect combination for a girly yet playful Valentine’s Day wedding. And pale pinks and creamy ivories paired with gray brings a fun, modern twist to the whimsical and romantic theme. I'm in love with the dreamy photography of Elizabeth In Love.
