Tucked inside are endless ideas for floral displays, place setting vignettes and more crafted by Madison Sanders Events along with florals by Victorian Gardens. Get inspired to celebrate Spring a wee bit early with even more photographed by Jordan Brittley right here in the vault.
From the Photographer… I’ve been thinking that maybe place settings need a little loving! You’re about to see place settings that make you just a little weak in the knees. What guest wouldn’t want to sit down and feel pampered with place settings like these? Madison makes everything feel inviting – whether it’s chic and simple or elegant and elaborate! We couldn’t resist the boutonnieres and bouquet from Amy of Victorian Gardens, either. It always adds such a lovely touch to let the floral design inspire the rest of the design – including place settings. Here, you’ll find 2 different table setups that compliment each other and a variety of ways couples can create unique, chic place settings.

From the Wedding Planner… I was so thrilled when approached by Jordan Brittley to collaborate with Victorian Gardens on some Spring Table Top Inspiration! When discussing our favorite elements to include in chic weddings, beautiful floral and soft, romantic accents topped the list. We instantly started scheming fresh ways to set a table top with a variety of paper pieces, flowers and tableware configurations to make it special for guests and fun for the couple! The ideas we created could be utilized at parties both big and small. We might even suggest incorporating some of these set ups to accent the place settings for your guests of honor – just the bride and groom or the entire bridal party. The finest details make the most memorable parties and we are encouraging our clients to think outside the box when designing their tables. Here’s some inspiration for your lovely tables because want to see more of you in the place settings!

From the Bride…Before starting the planning process, my husband (Alex) and I had three priorities (well four for me) ; photographer/videographer, food and music and my dress. We had a general idea of what colors we wanted but it wasn’t until we met with our wedding coordinators, Cosmopolitan Events, did we really dive into the details.
I wanted our color palette to be timeless so we went with a warm neutral palette with soft pinks, ivory and rose gold. My style along with my husband’s is traditional and classic, we kept it trendy by using some fun textures for our linens.
We wanted our day to represent us so we included a lot of our favorite foods, drinks and even our favorite charity at our reception. At our reception we served a signature cocktail to greet our guests, St. Louis themed food as our midnight snack which included Gus’ pretzels, toasted ravioli and in lieu of favors, we donated to Friends of Kids with Cancer in our guests names and in support of my niece, Elliana, who is a cancer survivor.
Our favorite moment of the day was our first look. It was exhilarating walking up to him and anticipating his reaction to seeing me in my wedding gown. I’ll treasure those few minutes we shared together before the ceremony forever.

From Lauren Field Design…
”We don’t persuade people through intellect, you do through emotion.” -Aristotle
Being the observer in one another’s life creates the loveliest environment. We were inspired by the beautiful moment a bride has with her bridesmaid before she embarks on a new journey in her life. Sharing this small moment with her dear friend fosters the strong intimate relationship she will desire to build with her groom.
The harmonious palette of taupe, light green & golden rod illustrates earth’s energy allowing us to observe the beauty that radiates from within. Focusing on the raw simplicity of the woodland area was important in creating a calm and peaceful backdrop where the colorful hues of orange, cream, and light pink of golden hour shined through the foliage.
The bride was adorned in an exquisite cap sleeve full lace Claire Pettibone gown paired with a loose modernist side braid. To highlight the gorgeous lace details we created a custom sheer ivory ribbon and light mauve lace cape to cascade behind the bride.The bridesmaid wore a dramatic floor length vintage silk beige pin tuck halter gown and loosely drawn up hair. To pair with the delicacy of the gowns we selected lustrous raw stone jewelry for the event. A custom crimson fabric wrapped ring box showcased the striking engagement ring. Adding this vibrant hue to our color story created a rich ambience for our highly neutral setting.
As the sun starts to set on this lovely event, our ladies toast with a signature cocktail of champagne and hibiscus flowers.As they forge their own paths in life they will always share in that bond that brings them together.
