Sweet Lady and the Tramp Wedding Inspiration

We all know and love the movie ‘Lady and the Tramp’, so it’s no big surprise that we are completely uhb-sessed with this Bella Notte inspiration from Vanessa Velez. Complete with Anthology Co. Floristry and super sweet details (like those delectable desserts!), we’ve got it all waiting for in The Vault!

From Oh My Occasions“Side by side with your loved one, you’ll find enchantment here”. You’ll find it here in our Lady and the Tramp inspired shoot. Bella Notte highlights an unconventional romance, illustrating that opposites do attract. With a soft watercolor ambiance, with burst of deep reds brought together beautifully by Anthology Co. and inspired by the classic Disney movie takes a dreamy, more tender, spin on puppy love. Vintro Hotel provides a quasi-authentic Italian café atmosphere. Complete with bistro lighting, delicate floral centerpieces, a wine barrel table, and some delectable desserts to share, the mood was set for a night between a scruffy gentleman and his stylish lady. Unlike the meant-to-be fairytales or love stories you read about, the Bella Notte vignette showcases the contemporary affection between two dissimilar beings that had to defy the norms to be together and their impromptu adventures together and an intimate bond that forever unites their hearts. The couple always remembers to enjoy the little things in life: playful dollops of frosting on each others’ nose, hiding behind their parasol to steal a private kiss.

“Good Vibes Only” Was the Motto of This Miami Wedding

Though this gorgeous Bride originally wanted to elope, her handsome Groom ultimately convinced her that a wedding was worth it, especially if it was a wedding full of “good vibes only.” This meant friends and family all around, amazing vendors (like Lynne Avallone Bridal and Special Occasion Makeup and Capture POD Photo Booths), and love all around. See it all from Concept Photography and Senderey in The Vault!

From The Bride…It wasn’t long after Alec proposed that I uttered the three little words I never thought I would hear myself say, “Let’s just elope!” After Alec swept me off my feet on a wintery New Year’s Eve in New York City, I wasn’t visualizing a white dress or diamond rings or centerpieces, but all the stuff that comes after. A life together. A home we could share. A Sunday where we didn’t have to say goodbye. You see, Alec and I had spent most of our relationship in separate cities, racking up Amtrak points and frequent flyer miles. So when the day finally came when Alec would be relocating from New York City to Boston, I was quick to pull out the elopement card.

It was Alec who convinced me otherwise. He suggested that we throw tradition to the wind and make our wedding whatever we wanted it to be. On Alec’s wish list? A big party and great music. For me it was simple: the beach. Call me romantic, but the image of sea and sand and wind in my hair while I married the love of my life was everything I had dreamed of and more. So we settled on The Palms Hotel in Spa in Miami Beach Florida, a boutique beachside resort that provided the perfect backdrop for our wedding weekend. The laid back, tropical vibe of the hotel and grounds really set the tone for the entire weekend: a steel drummer welcoming guests to the rehearsal dinner, a beachside yoga class led by makeup artist Lynne Avallone, plenty of time lounging on an endless stretch of white sand with friends and family. No stress and “good vibes only.” A mantra that would come to define the weekend.

We were blessed to work with the very best vendor team. Our party planners, Chiara Clark and Holly Wamser, flawlessly executed our vision and made the planning process a breeze. Our photographers, Sara and Jason Martin of Concept Photography, BLEW US AWAY with their stunning photos. Our videographer, Senderey Video Productions, found a way to capture all of the emotion and beauty of an entire night into a 2-minute highlight reel. But it’s worth highlighting two of my most favorite people: makeup artist, Lynne Avallone and hair stylist, Kristine Collins. I’ve known Lynne and Kristine for many years, and have recommended them to just about every bride in Boston I can get my hands on. Not only is their talent unparalleled, but they are EXACTLY the kind of people you want by your side as you prep for the biggest moment of your life. They have that unique ability to make you feel like the very best version of yourself. The yoga class that Lynne graciously offered to lead was the perfect start to the day. I felt so blessed that they made the trip from Boston to Miami for the weekend.

As I reflect back on the wedding and all of these beautiful memories we now have, I know that Alec was right all along. A wedding is not about pomp and circumstance. It’s a story you get to choose for yourself. I’m so happy we chose ours.

Natural Elements + Industrial Architecture Combine For One Gorgeous Editorial

Photos from Katie Lopez Photography, design and decor by JCG Events, florals by Anthology Co. and furniture rentals from Unearthed Vintage — this Miami inspiration session features the absolute best of the best, and the result is unlike any other wedding inspiration you’ve seen before. See all the pretty moments of this organic-meets-industrial-meets-modern masterpiece in The Vault!

From JCG EventsThe goal of this wedding shoot was to create an organic industrial modern wedding. We wanted to inspire through the details and create an overall story. This is what happens when you bring together a wonderful group of creatives in the wedding industry.

The wedding story began with our couple. They are actually married in real life and their love for each other translated through the lens. The venue 1111 Lincoln Road created the perfect backdrop for this shoot. It has an architectural design with clean lines, hanging greener, with concrete and small wood paneling detail. We created a conceptual design for this wedding to inspire and make you reimagine the elements that make a wedding.

We created a ceremony centered around a unique structure and accented with light bulbs loosely strung together to create a romantic backdrop for their wedding. Guests would then be invited to celebrate in the cocktail hour where we created a lounge area in order to make a more intimate setting for guests to be able to converse with one another, celebrate and take in the breathtaking views the venue offers. The focal point of the cocktail space was the helix dome that was placed over the Hampton bar, along with hanging Edison bulbs.

The reception would then follow. Here we used square wooden tables to create one long royal table paired with industrial metal chairs. Designing one long royal table enhanced the intimate romantic yet industrial feel we were looking to accomplish. The centerpieces consisted mostly of greenery with various textures and long black tapered candles in gold modern candleholders. The plate chargers had silver detail and a modern geometric design. We paired them with black linen napkins tucked into hammered metal napkin rings.

The cake was a clean design with a marble fondant finish. The favors were mini chocolate bars with gold calligraphy words on each of them. This concept could also serve as escort cards or place cards. This design and natural feel of the marble cake fit perfectly with the setting. It all was displayed on top of three various height crank tables.

The three spaces for ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all came together in the design. We achieved visually unique experiences for guests at each space for an overall memorable and inspiring design.
