Part II: Organic Minimal Wedding Inspiration

From gorgeous gowns to ethereal elegance, we’ve featured stunning inspirations before, but sometimes it’s minimalistic and organic shoots that catch our eye. Overflowing with earthy shades of neutrals and soft silks, this piece of pretty has simplistic elegance down to an art. Designed by Martha Hatfield with images by Megan Robinson, it’s easy to get lost in the loveliness here!


From Martha Hatfield… This is part two of a two part editorial I put together. I love minimal design. Through my formal interior design training I learned that in order to achieve a minimal aesthetic, simplicity is key. The idea for this two part editorial came from Mies van der Rohe’s aphorism, “less is more.” My concept was to design a minimal wedding from two different aesthetic approaches, modern and organic. I wanted to showcase how careful editing and restraint can create the greatest impact regardless of what design style you work within.

Organic Giant Wreath Wedding Inspiration

With snowy days right around the bend, wintry candles, twinkly lights and wreaths galore have made their appearance in our home. And oh, how I love wreaths. So when this thing of beauty crossed my desk? I nearly fell off my chair. With Mood Events behind the concept and design, Sarah Winward of Honey Of A Thousand Flowers crafted this wildly captivating oversized wreath, accompanied by one of the prettiest bouquets I’ve seen yet. Feast your eyes on the full gallery from Leo Patrone!


From Garrett of Mood EventsMy vision was to create a single décor element that was not only simple and beautiful, but classic and timeless at the same time. Weddings have increasingly become more and more ornate, filled with layers upon layers of beautiful details. But in this instance, I wanted the focus to solely be centered around the bride and groom, with a beautiful floral wreath, and in an environment that only Mother Nature can provide. The only theme used in this photoshoot is that of a circle/oval – the floral wreath, the wreath around the invitation, the simple and delicate wreath on the cake, the bride’s halo, and the amazingly simple and understated groom’s mini-wreath bout made from jasmine vine.

Lush, Natural Inspiration Shoot at the Cathedral Of The Madeleine

If I could, I would crawl into this shoot and live amongst all the pretty forever. Styled to perfection by Erin Kate Photography and Soil & Stem, this gallery is overflowing with the kind of lush, floral-filled inspiration that will make your heart beat a bit faster this morning. See what I mean here.  

From Erin Kate Photography and Soil & StemGargoyles peered over the jagged pitches of the roof, while pigeons swooped and cooed around us during this lush courtyard styled shoot.

Our color palate really allowed us to focus on the simple, natural textures of our subject matter: the porous cement, heirloom silver, and the infinite patterns of layered greens that included ferns, eucalyptus, foraged vines, and incredible peppermint scented felt geranium.

Like freshly picked from an overgrown secret garden, our bridal bouquet was a bit wild, but also timeless. This beauty was hand-tied in antique French silk ribbon in the most beautiful shade of dove gray I’ve ever seen.

Other lovely details from the shoot…The bride wore a delicate chiffon gown. Her hair was styled in a simple twist bun adorned with vintage rhinestone barrettes. A guest sign-in book was created with an old book and maidenhair fern was pressed between the pages. Place cards were displayed on vintage silver forks that were wrapped in geranium leaves, fern, and soft blossoms. A cement cake stand displayed a lovely, chocolate naked cake with buttercream frosting spilling out between the layers.

We hope brides will find simple, clean beauty can pair well with unruly, lush stems in this elegant courtyard shoot.
