This Cropped Top Two Piece Is Our New Spring Style Crush

This lace Alexandra Grecco two piece may have had us at hello but it’s just one piece of the pretty puzzle making up this styled shoot. Anna Joy Design put together a scene that is both stylish and subtle, uber pretty and softly simple. From the fashion to the beautiful blooms by Modern Bouquet and more, Mirelle Carmichael captured it all, making our Vault the best place to be today.

From Anna Joy DesignMilagro Farm Vineyards & Winery was the perfect backdrop for this Italian-inspired bridal shoot. The property is dripping with lush greenery and is home to a stunning villa surrounded by beautiful stone. The natural elegance of this venue called for organic and old-world touches, so we dreamed up a design full of soft textures and silver accents.

We started with a color palette that would marry perfectly with the surrounding stone while still standing out in romantic contrast. Slate blue and mixed grays were brought in with delicate silks hand dyed by Silk & Willow and many gorgeous pieces from Archive Vintage Rentals, including gray glassware and the tufted seating of our dreams. Archive’s silver made a big statement in our tablescape, from vintage goblets and antique candleholders to flatware and chargers. Perfectly paired, clear crystal coupes and white china with charming scalloped edges kept the table settings clean and classic.

Hannah of Modern Bouquet created breathtaking floral designs that took romantic elegance to a new level full of organic greenery, textured white blooms and a sprinkling of dainty, foraged blue touches. Combing garden roses, ranunculus, sweet peas and scabiosa, each arrangement added dreamlike softness to the day. With a love for balance, we were inspired to bring a bit of warmth into a scene full of cooler hues. Modern Bouquet wove in hints of caramel toned roses, complementing neutral Silk & Willow napkins in the most beautiful way.

Continuing to weave in soft elements, we chose a two-piece Alexandra Grecco gown from The Dress Theory for our bride. A sheer, lace top and a long, flowing tulle skirt were a match made in heaven with slightly undone hair and natural makeup by Sweet Fuss.

Calligraphy details hand drawn by The Pointed Nib on handmade paper with torn edges provided the same relaxed elegance as our barefoot bride. Besides the lovely place cards rolled into the shape of scrolls, one of our favorite pieces was a recipe card showcasing each ingredient of the delicious Prosecco and Elderflower cocktail.

Popping a bottle of bubbly to celebrate was exactly what we all felt like doing after such a beautiful day, with every bit of romance captured on film by the incredibly talented Mirelle Carmichael Photography.

See How A Wedding Photographer Styled Her Own Big Day

When wedding photographers themselves says “I do” it’s kinda guaranteed to be great. But this one here took it to a new level; to say I’m smitten would be an understatement. From the Jenny Yoo dresses to the gold and silver sparkles, this New Orleans celebration has my heart and isn’t letting go anytime soon. Brock Gomez Productions brought it to life and this darling duo wisely chose Marissa Lambert to snap all their special moments. This Vault gallery is my new happy place – meet me there and thank me later.

Whimsical

From the Bride… As designers and wedding photographers, we sort of knew what we wanted fairly quickly. A wedding in daylight, during the month of December with our closest friends and family were just a few must-haves for our wedding.

We chose New Orleans as the destination. We were residents at the time and love the culture and unique aspects of the city. The Magnolia Bridge is a pedestrian crossing located in the heart of Midcity (the neighborhood Brad lived in); it just felt like the perfect spot for our small, afternoon wedding.

Everything about our ceremony was personal. Brad’s cousin officiated, we hand selected readings, hand wrote our vows, and our good friend Jesse wrote the music. Even the cones filled with dried petals were made of song lyrics from “You’ve Got a Friend” (the first song Brad said reminded him of me).

Following the wedding, we second lined (using stamped napkins with our wedding logo) over to the Pitot House (a historical landmark in the city). On the grounds outside the house, we hosted our guests inside a clear tent with string lights… and spent the earlier portion of the reception mingling with friends and family.

It’s not tradition in the South to have toasts or even a sit down dinner… but we loved the idea of both so we went for it. The seating chart was created out of a laser cut map of New Orleans. Each name on the seating chart was laser cut and corresponded to the table (named after all our favorite neighborhoods in the city). Everyone had their own name cut out of wood again larger this time on their individual place setting. And the tables were decorated with pine cones and a deep colored floral and eucalyptus garland from end to end.

Our linens were mixed: some ivory and occasionally gold or silver to highlight our toasting, dessert, cake and sweetheart tables. Our cake was simple… white fondant with olive branches and lovely Crate & Barrel flutes (I love these!).

We ended the night with dancing and placed a lock gifted to us on the bridge to seal the deal!

Inspired By Tuscany, This Couple Recreated That Magic For Their Big Day

As their photographer Coco Tran said so well, “there are beautiful representations of love around the world, though nothing quite so magical as the rolling green hills, vibrant vineyards and mouthwatering foods of Tuscany,” and so this couple took that Italian inspiration and ran with it. With the help of Whitney Nelson Events and Poppystone Designs they created a magical vineyard celebration and with the Bride beaming (thanks to Bella Bridal), we have a gallery that we’re not leaving anytime soon – see it all in our Vault right here!

From Coco TranThere are beautiful representations of love around the world, though nothing quite so magical as the rolling green hills, vibrant vineyards and mouthwatering foods of Tuscany. As the most romantic destination the couple was fortunate enough to travel to, they were inspired to recreate that inclusive magic for their friends and families closer to home in beautiful Sonoma. Inspired by simple, yet flavorful cuisine, fresh and colorful florals with a hint of antique gold and soft lighting, their intimate wedding was designed to bring everyone closer in the celebration of love and family.
