Minimal Wedding Details That Pack a Stylish Punch

Whether big or small, weddings these days are all about the details and we’ve fallen big time for celebrations that merge minimalism with the modern day soiree. Think monochromatic blooms with a modern twist, or added texture with gorgeous greenery and wildly beautiful bouquets styled to a T. From clean lines to luxe materials, we’ve rounded up how you can get the ‘minimal’ look without sacrificing major style on your big day.

Embrace Your Inner Ballerina with This Wedding Inspiration

It’s public knowledge that everything Greg Finck captures is pure perfection, but add in the largely talented Branco Prata on hand styling every detail to perfect? Well that’s just a downright dream. Take this lovelier than ever inspiration as proof and see it all firsthand in The Vault!


From Greg FinckThis is the inspiration shoot behind the 2nd edition of Greg Finck Workshop, which occured last May in Provence. Greg Finck Workshop is a 3-days retreat for wedding photographers. The purpose of this retreat is to guide and help wedding photographers to find their way in a saturated wedding photography industry. Days are composed of learning technic and business principle, as well as shooting. We always try to think out of the box at Greg Finck Workshop, and that’s how we came up with this ballerina wedding inspiration.

From Sofia Ferreira of Branco PrataAs creatives in wedding industry we have a constant need to improve our aesthetic, overcome our fears and evolve. Our creative inner voice wants to be challenged and we truly want to experiment new concepts and above all present meaningful designs and imagery that truly reflects who we are. That is why we decided on breaking some barriers, be adventurous and explore unfamiliar grounds… Body language is the unconscious and conscious transmission and interpretation of feelings, attitudes, and moods, through: i) body posture, movement, physical state, position and relationship to other bodies, objects and surroundings, and ii) facial expression and eye movement. This transmission and interpretation can be quite different to the spoken words.” Sofia Ferreira, Branco Prata

A Mid-Century Modern LA Wedding

Lindsay and Derek have a modern love story if I ever heard one. They met on Tinder and four dates later knew they’d found The One. Fast forward to their wedding styled by the interior designer bride with coordination by Tessa Lyn Events and you’ll find a chic, organic mix of Japanese denim, brass, and wood infused with a moody vibe to amp up the romance. Elizabeth Messina photographed and the happily ever after doesn’t stop here because these two have a baby girl due this winter!

Event Venue

From the Bride… It was a modern day romance: boy and girl both swipe right, fall in love, and the rest was history. Derek and I met on Tinder (it really works!) and four dates (in seven days) later, we knew magic was brewing. After thirteen months of wining, dining, traveling, and making a home together, Derek proposed in front of the storied swans at the Hotel Bel Air with a custom-designed oval diamond ring set in rose gold. The evening was beautifully and thoughtfully planned, with surprises unfolding at every turn, culminating in an intimate engagement party with out-of-town family and our closest friends.

As an interior designer with a foodie fiancé, our wedding priorities were clear from the start: a stunning backdrop, personalized styling, and an unforgettable meal were the prerequisites to finding our ideal venue. As we embarked upon a California road trip the following week, we spent hours dreaming up how magical it would be to get married at our favorite LA restaurant, Hinoki and the Bird. We were thrilled to learn that it was the perfect fit to accommodate 110 of our nearest and dearest. The design concept for the wedding began with the existing materials at the venue – a chic, organic mix of Japanese denim, brass, and wood. To infuse a sexiness and romance appropriate for the black tie optional affair, we turned to Dutch-inspired florals and loads of dripping tapered candles, which struck the perfect balance to the venue’s earthy minimalism.

We chose a dramatic palette of white, indigo, oxblood, and blush. To set the event’s tone from the first touchpoint, we combined a raw deckle edge invitation with an envelope liner adapted from the sculptural work of Dutch fiber artist Peter Gentenaar. My bridal bouquet of hellebores, ranunculus, and privet perfectly complemented his thistle boutonniere, all brought to life by the brilliant floral stylings of The Bosky Dell.

Upon arrival, our guests were greeted with champagne and hand brush lettered denim fabric place cards. The aisle was lined with vintage carpets and adorned from above with hanging floral installations sculpted from budding magnolias and quince. I chose an etherial gown by Mira Zwillinger and walked down the aisle to Ben Harper’s Forever. We read the vows we wrote for one another beneath a simple chuppah of bare branches.

Following the ceremony, guests were invited to enjoy custom craft cocktails and an abundance of delicious appetizers like lemongrass lamb and lobster rolls, accompanied by a lively gypsy jazz trio. The family-style dinner of black cod, miso steak and jidori chicken was served on Heath ceramic place settings with gold-rimmed stemware along candle-filled farmhouse tables. After dinner, a roaring dance party commenced, and we partied the night away into the wee hours with family and friends.

We spent our wedding night at the hotel where we got engaged and upon returning there that evening, took a late-night swim and relived every detail of an unforgettable day. Derek and I are forever grateful for our dream wedding and are thrilled to be expecting our first child, a baby girl, in January.

4 Things You Need To Know Before Registering for Your Wedding

Guys, we know curating the perfect registry isn’t always easy. Trust us, we sooo get that. Which is why we’re turning to the experts at Zola for a little how-to on registering for all the gifts you most definitely can’t live without. From baking essentials to splurge-worthy items, it’s your journey to a must-have list that will last you long after the “I do’s” have been said. Scroll for four very awesome steps.

Consider Your Personal Style

No two couples are alike… and Zola? Well, they totally understand that. Their premier universal registry offers gifts, experiences AND funds all in one place, which makes showing your unique style and personality sooo easy… and fun. Think a never-ending list of awesome products (hello, KitchenAid Mixer) that are the very definition of well-rounded, plus trendy accent pieces that are really meant for you and your love. Not to mention that you can personalize your Zola registry with awesome pics and sweet notes to your guests, so the entire experience screams “YOU” from start to finish.

Don’t Leave Out Splurge-Worthy Items

Feeling a little shy about registering for those big ticket items? Don’t. Zola offers group gifting, so guests can contribute any amount they wish to those items that are a little more expensive than most. Which means saying “goodbye” to those guilty feelings and “hello” to that splurge-worthy piece that you’ve had your eye on. And products are even narrowed down with super handy categories (everyday, upgrade and standout), so you can easily figure out which ones are worthy of that group gifting tag when you are filling out your Registry Checklist. Afraid the gift won’t be 100% funded? No worries – you’ll still receive whatever amount was gifted to you. We love that.

Think of Your Future Needs

You may be saying “I do” in the near future, but registering? It’s forever. Which is why spending time perusing Zola’s 450 top brands and thinking about what “future you” may want or need is a total must. I’m talking camping equipment (here’s looking at you, Halulite Microdualist Complete 14-Piece Cooking Set), baking essentials for next year’s Thanksgiving feast and that bedding that will take your guest room from okay to fabulous for all of those visitors you are sure to host in your newlywed abode.

Personalize a Cash Fund

Have everything you need, but can’t stop thinking about that trip to Thailand or those fab excursions you and yours are dying to try while honeymooning in Hawaii? With Zola, you can create a personalized cash fund with whatever you wish AND the lowest cash fee on funds you’ll find. Zola even offers a wide range of unique experiences you can register for, like wine clubs, SoulCycle Classes and more. Such a win-win, loves.
