Southern Provencal Garden Wedding With Bunny Mellon Touches

Where do we even begin when it comes to this stunning Savannah affair? Runway-worthy fashion statements, Bunny Mellon inspired design and whimsical floral arrangements filled with allium, sweet pea and antique roses from Blossom Events… these are just a few of the insanely special details you’ll find at the full gallery by Julie Livingston Photography. The darling couple acquired the help of Reagan Events to bring their wedding dreams to reality, and boy did they deliver! To say we’re obsessed is the understatement of the century.

From the bride, Miranda… Having each spent time living in many cities around the country before meeting in Dallas in 2020, Scott and I were lucky to have made such wonderful friends across numerous states who we knew we’d be asking to travel to celebrate our big day. We wanted to pick a destination that would allow everyone the opportunity to enjoy exploring in between our wedding events, so we began our search in Charleston, where I’d always dreamed of a quintessential low country wedding (and thankfully my Milwaukee-raised then future husband agreed). After striking out with available dates at most of our preferred venues, our planner, Reagan of Reagan Events, suggested the perfect “plan B” and ultimately lead us to Savannah and the idyllic Ford Field and River Club—it was love at first sight and we immediately set the date for Memorial Day weekend 2022!

So much of the appeal of Savannah for us was in its eclectic mix of culture, history and of course breathtaking nature! We wanted to fully embrace all of those ideals in the design concept of our whole weekend, so we created a vision board that felt like a southern adaptation of The Secret Garden with a touch of Provençal interior design influence: overgrown florals and abundant greenery, grand garden gates and egret motifs, antique collectibles and silver mixed with rattan and wicker pieces, all under a sailcloth tent! My mom, sister and I all share a forever love of purple flowers, so we special requested allium, sweet pea and antique roses all in purple hues as the standout blooms in our table arrangements. Paired back to sage green as the primary color in our design palate, plus touches of soft peach, dusty rose and periwinkle, our all-star vendor team created a space that truly felt as if you were cocktail-ing, eating and dancing on a warm, candle lit summer night in a garden in full bloom.

One of my favorite aspects of our wedding design process was working with the immensely talented Julie King Studio. She created not only our entire wedding paper suite, but also designed the art work for our band stage backdrop, circular cocktail bar dance floor AND fun takeaways like match books, maps of Savannah and our late-night snack bags. I’ve long loved hand painted wall murals and wallpaper for interiors, so she played off of a few of my favorite saved images to create a unique garden design featuring budding trees, butterflies and an egret that became a fixed little motif across all our wedding designs!

Finding the dress(es) was one of the—thankfully—easiest and most special parts of the planning process. For my gown, I knew I wanted something strapless, column shaped and with a bow on the back, based off an inspiration photo I’d saved nearly a decade ago from an Alber Elbaz-era Lanvin bridal collection. I took my mom and sister to shop with me, and on our second stop of the day, we walked into the Carolina Herrera salon in Dallas and found exactly what I had been hoping for and then some! They graciously made a few tweaks to make the bow fuller and visible from the front, and it was more special (and comfortable!) than I could’ve ever imagined. I initially hadn’t planned to find a second change reception dress, but when an appointment spot opened up at Happy Isles salon in LA, I booked a flight on a whim in hopes of finding something to change my mind! I was elated to find just that in a silver fringe-beaded taupe hued dress that immediately reminded me of a ballgown worn by Audrey Hepburn’s Eliza Doolittle character in the film My Fair Lady. It ended up making for the perfect sparkly party dress!

From the rehearsal dinner to our post-wedding Bloody Mary’s + Biscuits goodbye brunch, our weekend was the biggest blur of pure joy, love and sweet moments we’ll cherish forever surrounded by all of our very favorite people who’ve walked us through so many stages of our lives, separately and together. As our guests moved from cocktail hour to the tent for dinner and dancing on our wedding day, we took a moment to ourselves on the lawn to watch the sun go down and take it all in together. The overwhelming feeling of love and gratitude is something I’ll never forget—for any future brides reading this, take a moment away with your husband to soak in all the happiness. You’ll never remember what goes right or wrong, but you’ll never forget those first few married moments of pure wedding day bliss!

This Couple’s Museum of Natural History Wedding Was Complete with Ring Pops and Dinosaurs

Ready for a roaring good time? Christie and Brian got married at the Fernbank Natural History Museum amongst real dinosaur fossils! Brianne McMullan Events planned the modern romantic day, filled with centerpieces inside acrylic boxes that looked like they could’ve been an exhibit at the museum themselves! Lindsay Coletta brightened the space with bright pops of beautiful flowers, and Laura Watson artfully captured every magical moment.  Fall in love with every chic second inside the full gallery.

From Laura WatsonChristie and Brian strayed from traditional southern clichés and played into the modern lines and motifs of Fernbank Natural History Museum in Atlanta throughout their wedding design – from their paper to their florals. Their design showcased the romantic colors of the season, but the pair leaned into the museum aesthetic by placing their centerpieces in delicate acrylic boxes as if on display in a gallery.

They also added sparks of their personality throughout. When Brian proposed, he initially used a ring pop, so they made sure their guests could take part in the romance at their reception with a basket full of Ring Pops at the ready.

Christie chose her brother as her “Man of Honor,” and he fashionably rocked the title in a burgundy suit. And if you’re getting married in a dinosaur museum, you must have dinosaurs at the reception, right?

Elevate the Coastal Grandmother Aesthetic With This Feminine Jekyll Island Wedding!

Inspired by the hues of a salt marsh just steps away from the Jekyll Island Club Resort, this native-Georgian bride planned her dream wedding day in pale blues, greens, and neutrals – a feminine take on the Coastal Grandmother aesthetic! Take notes because we can’t stop obsessing over the stand-out details of the day – the black and white dance floor and the oyster shell escort display, handmade by the bride’s father, to name a few. Kati Mallory Photo Design captured this elevated classic to perfection, ‘sea’ for yourself in the full gallery!

Jacqueline and Ryan’s wedding took place in Jekyll Island, Georgia. Just a short drive away from Jacqueline’s hometown of Saint Simon Island, Jekyll Island was the perfect place to have their friends and family gather to celebrate the beginning of their marriage. Miraculously, the couple did not use an official wedding planner and instead designed this stunning affair with Jacqueline’s impeccable taste.

The wedding color palette was inspired by the colors of the salt marsh – pale blues, greens, tans and golds – which is located only steps away from Crane Cottage where the ceremony and reception were held. Guests got to experience sunshine and the breeze coming in from the marsh as Jacqueline & Ryan exchanged vows under the Spanish moss blowing in the trees above.

Their reception, held in the gardens of the cottage, featured a classic black and white dance floor and greenery, along with an escort card wall, designed and built by the bride’s father and showcasing oyster shells, that helped guests find their seats before the plated dinner service began.

Overall it was a beautiful spring day on the Georgia coast!

Floral-Centric Inspiration in Full Bloom at Savannah’s Historic Bellwether House

Refined and timeless with a hint of the ‘unexpected’ was the creative direction for this styled shoot at Savannah’s historic Bellwether House. Allison Event Design expressed the feeling of abundant romance with garden-inspired patterns. From the bride’s hand-painted floral gown and her cascading white rose bouquet by Jardinière Events to the curated tablescape, this real couple’s love story was surrounded by blooms. Watch love blossom in the full gallery, all captured by The Happy Bloom

From Allison Event Design… When dreaming up this photoshoot, I wanted to pull together the ‘unexpected’ elements. Overall, we aimed to curate a look that was abundant and romantic, while also being refined and timeless. We love that couples are opening themselves up to making their day their own and truly about themselves. At Allison Event Design, we love working with couples that enjoy adding in
traditions and details about their love story, to fully bring it to life.

Here we have a gorgeous bride in a hand-painted dress and embroidered veil full of life and color. She is celebrating their love and not afraid to show their closest family and friends her boldness. We’ve paired it with a traditional white and green bouquet, but large and draping to add to the dramatics. Her groom is in a classic tux adding to the elegance and timelessness of the evening. They are happy throughout the photos, laughing and excited for this next chapter of their lives together.

The design tells the story of how their love started simple. The front steps have the added touch of florals but are simply stating that love is starting here at home. In the back courtyard, the table is lush and full. Their love has grown over time through the simple, delicate details and moments. Inspired by some of the most beautiful gardens in the world, we played with a layering of colors, textures and patterns to bring an organic yet refined feel to the tablescape. Bringing the sense of design and intentionality to the shoot was paramount to ensure their blossoming love story was conveyed and consistent, just as we are with all our couples’ stories.

Full of lush floral pieces with classic white English roses and snapdragons, they created beautiful enchanting pieces to see their vision come to life. 

A large floral arch, floral chandelier and floral entrance to their tented reception – which sat on the dunes of Sea Island – greeted guests for every event. Their outdoor cocktail hour showcased custom bars and a beautifully designed floral decor escort card display. 

Music is incredibly important to the couple – so they made sure to have musicians at every stop – including a Bagpipe-lead champagne walk between their garden ceremony to their ocean-front cocktail hour. Custom-stamped ice cubes for their drinks and butler-passed hors d’oeuvres greeted guests at cocktail hour. 

They also included their Frenchie – naming the bars with beautiful acrylic signage “Lulu’s Bar” – and featuring his and hers signature drinks (Red Hand for him, and White Linen for her).

Black and White Wedding Elegance With a Dress That Would Make Carrie Bradshaw Proud

If you’re anything like us, there’s a good chance you’re obsessing over the Sex and The City reboot updates generating some major buzz all over social media at the moment. And after seeing today’s stunning editorial, we couldn’t help but wonder… is this one of the most incredibly chic dress moments we’ve ever seen on SMP?! We’re pretty sure miss Carrie Bradshaw herself would agree that the answer is a resounding yesssEvery fashionista has to see the full gallery of details from this day – brought to life by Greychic Wedding, with floral design by Dinara Almenova and photos from Yulia Galygina!

From Photographer Yulia GalyginaThis wedding shoot was a part of Tamara Gigola Workshop. We were surrounded by the breathtaking landscapes of Georgia and beautiful Vazisubani Estate. Creating this shoot the organizer GreyChic Wedding drew inspiration from the history of the Vazisubannin estate. Style, elegance and modern trends come together in the actual moment. A simple idea, so close in reality or in dreams, for many of us, in my opinion, will not leave anyone indifferent. 

The photographer Yulia Galygina was able to convey all this in an amazing way through her shots. A large team is working for this, stories, poses, shots, and style are carefully thought out for a long time. And all these stages bring great pleasure, especially when we see the result. In the 1800s, this splendid estate belonged to a renowned nobleman Sulkhan Chavchavadze. A pioneer in winemaking back in the days, Chavchavadze built the estate and vineyards in 1891. His contribution to the cultural and educational development in Georgia, particularly Kakheti, is paramount. With time Chavchavadze’s once-prosperous palace and vineyards deteriorated. 

In 2013 the visionaries behind Vazisubani Estate took it in their hands to revive the derelict estate and transform it into an iconic destination – one rooted in its rich history, uninterrupted winemaking tradition, exceptional cuisine, and outstanding hospitality. With that in mind, the vineyards were replanted and an old wine cellar restored. The palace was renovated and now is a 19 room exquisite boutique hotel. Two looks were chosen for the bride. The first image and dress from the designer Murashka Wedding Atelier is simpler and more concise, emphasizing the modernity and natural beauty of the girl. The second one is bold and with an emphasis on the large voluminous sleeve of the dress from the designer Katya Kutz. The decoration and color scheme of the table was very simple, but quite relevant and modern. Florist Dinara Almenova was able to highlight the elegance and color scheme of the Vazisubanni estate.

This Flower Forward Georgia Wedding Has Love In Full Bloom

This classic and elegant Swan House wedding is sure to stand the test of time. Krissy Campbell worked closely with our couple to design a day that not only dazzles but also shows their deepest appreciation to family and friends for celebrating with them. The invitations and day of stationery were designed and calligraphed by the bride herself, a truly personal touch as the couple wrote each guest an individualized note placed at each seat along with the dinner menu. From the fountain cascading with blooms to the reception covered in an abundance of fabulous flowers, Thorne and Thistle Designs created magic at every turn. You can feel the love bursting out of the artful imagery by Bonphotage. Visit the full gallery to fall in love.

From Krissy CampbellAfter hearing about Ariel and Jordan’s love for nature, travel, history, and architecture, we knew it would be fitting to start with a neutral color palette, keeping in line with their timeless taste. It was also extremely important to them to create original moments, integrate their families, ensure their guests felt personally appreciated, and to find space alone for the two of them that day. All of this gave us a wonderful foundation to work with as we designed the experience alongside them.

We worked with talented floral designer, Thorne and Thistle, to create stunning floral vignettes that flowed naturally throughout each space at the Swan House – from cascading arrangements down the fountain to flowing pops of greens and softly colored florals and candles through cocktails and dinner tables.

As you can see through the beautifully captured photos and video from the Bonphotage team, Ariel and Jordan were incredibly thoughtful as they chose each detail of their celebration from beginning to end. The aesthetic and beauty was only heightened by the intimate moments between them and the intentional touches added for their loved ones.

This Couple’s Savannah Fête Will Charm You with Its Formal Meets Fun Festivities!

Bethany and Jesse’s wedding fête was filled with festivities, endearing touches, and a show-stealing furry ring bearer in Savannah, GA — the city that stole the couple’s hearts! The talents of Design Studio South and Gray Harper Florals’ muted arrangements with pops of burgundy accentuated the natural beauty of the intimate garden where the couple tied the knot. After the ceremony, a soulful, New Orleans-inspired parade kicked off a lively night at the Mansion on Forsyth Park complete with a bourbon and cigar bar. Relive the mesmerizing charm and romance of this formal yet fun celebration in the full gallery, vividly shot by Kati Rosado

From Kati RosadoBethany and Jesse’s destination wedding highlighted the charm and romance of Savannah, Georgia – a location with both family ties and precious vacation memories, like visiting every Christmas, that quickly stole the hearts of this couple. The historic and natural beauty of this city set the most perfect backdrop for this couple to say “I do!”. Although the couple initially planned to have the ceremony at Forsyth Park, a quick pivot was made to a nearby private garden due to COVID restrictions.

The private garden screamed romance with its natural awe and wonder. To make sure we accentuated rather than transform this incredible space, we chose soft colors + patterns with subtle pops of bold burgundy flowers in the Gray Harper Florals’s arrangements to keep the party going. A bold floral design wasn’t all this couple had in mind for a party. This couple celebrated “tying the knot” with a second line band (@Equinoxorchestra), giving off a New Orleans vibe, that led a parade featuring the newlyweds through the streets of Savannah back to Forsyth Park for a final round of celebration at the Mansion on Forsyth Park. We wanted to carry the intimacy from the private garden inside and push the formal romantic vibe through to the reception space while continuing to keep the fun atmosphere which included a bourbon and cigar bar! To accomplish the romantic vibe at the reception, we canvassed the venue with subtle pink linens, plenty of lit candles, gold metals, and deep red/pink tones in the table arrangements.

We valued the intimacy in this COVID restricted, destination wedding and ensured that personal details of the couple were scattered throughout the ceremony. A handmade quilt honored the bride’s mother, and a pot of pansies signified their shared sorority. Every detail in this wedding shared more and more about this darling couple. The star of the show, however, was undoubtedly the couple’s fur baby who appeared dressed to the nines in his very own tux. This sweet pup carried several roles as both the inspiration of a specialty cocktail at the reception and as a featured ring bearer during the ceremony.

The romance and fun felt on the wedding day was enough to carry us to the moon! Despite the challenges faced planning a wedding during COVID, Bethany and Jesse made sure every touch remained intimate, personal, and full of vibrant celebration. We were thrilled to partner beside them to make sure the whole show went down without a hitch and fulfilled their wildest destination dreams!

There’s so much more pretty to see in the full gallery, authentically documented by the talented Eve Yarbrough!

From the photographer Eve Yarbrough… Kiersten and Will’s spring wedding day was the perfect balance of classic and modern, yet fun and whimsical. From the dramatic floral installation hanging above the reception space, to the bride’s blushing pink bouquet, and sleek black bridesmaids dresses to match the groom’s classic tux, no detail was overlooked by this stylish couple.

From the bride… Our vision for our wedding day was a chapel-like feel in the space of our warehouse venue, with a modern color palette of black and white, softened with pale neutrals and blush. My dad, with some help, made a 10 ft cross out of cedar that was delicately draped with flowers and greenery. 

My favorite moment of our wedding day was definitely the first look, as it allowed allowed us to have some alone time, and decreased our nerves throughout the rest of the day. We got ready and shared our first look at my childhood home, which was a special and personal touch. Our florist exceeded our expectations, and utilized the high ceilings and exposed beams of our industrial style venue to design a stunning hanging floral chandelier, one of my favorite details of the day. My advice to brides-to-be would be to find a vendor team that understands your vision. Our vendors made all the difference, and it was worth the time to find a team that you trust!

How to Incorporate Old World Elegance at Your Micro Wedding

The historic elements of Georgia’s Swan House make for the ideal location for a dreamy wedding shoot, and that’s why these images are simply stunning. Using the European feel of the venue, Storybook Weddings & Events perfectly incorporated organic, wild details into their design. We’re head over heels for the earthy color palette and luscious floral installation by The Perfect Posey. From taper candles to rose gold vases and a classic tux, this day is the epitome of Old World elegance. Fill your heart with joy by viewing the full gallery of graceful images, captured by Sarah Sunstrom Photography.

From Sarah Sunstrom Photography… This stunning editorial was inspired by the ambiance of the Atlanta Historical Society iconic venue, Swan House. With its old world details and chateau centric feel, it makes for the ideal location for a romantic wedding celebration.

We wanted to use a very earthy palette with a luscious floral installation for the ceremony altar. With the use of all shades of taupe, cappuccino, blush, rust, wheat, soft whites and muted green hues, we had a bloom heavy asymmetric altar feature. The floral combination of a variety of lush garden roses and white oversized chrysanthemums were woven together into the large design using ruscus and dramatic pampas grass to make an impressive backdrop against the water fountains on the estate.

The bride wore two different Mistrelli House of Design gowns. The first featured an ostrich feather cape overlay that is the essence of breathtaking. Whimsical yet fierce this look was captured in gardens of the estate alongside a classic black tuxedo from The Knot Standard. The second Mistrelli look was a classic gown with incredible beading work along the neck and bust as well with a shimmer all throughout the dress. The final look was a Berta collection lace gown that hugged Natalie’s curves..

The cake was a showstopper with all of the elegant and intricate sugar work from the incredibly talented Elaine Drouin Cakes. The three tier cake featured a feather technique in blush and white tipped in gold. The top two tiers had beautiful floral textures reminiscent of the gowns worn.

For the tablescape at our reception table, we had an eclectic grouping of floral cups and taper candles. The floral elements were in rose gold vases with organic arrangements of ranunculus, garden roses, dalias, and ruscus. The place settings were french inspired with soft lines and complemented with hand calligraphed place settings and personalized menus from Sugared Fig Paperie.

This 1928 mansion in the heart of Buckhead is frozen in time and continues to be the inspiration of romance and aesthetic for black tie affairs including weddings today. Creating an emotion with the use of so many beautiful pieces coming together to create a moment in time that no one will forget is what a wedding and marriage is all about. The environment provides a sensory experience that no one can define but it is filled with joy and warmth that we are all still enjoying today.

After the ceremony at Peachtree Road United Methodist Church guests were shuttled over to the Swan House to sip the signature “Dukes Raspberry Mojito (named after the couple’s dog) & enjoy hors d’oeuvres in the gardens. Our designs featured organic and loosely arranged flora, and an abundance of unique textural elements that highlighted the space.

We set the estate table for the bridal party under a cream-colored 50 ft chiffon draped cabana which served as the perfect focal point. One moment that will be a lasting memory for our team was the reception reveal for this special couple. Witnessing their happy tears as they saw their vision come together on the day of as they took in all the details was such a cherished moment as a designer.

Old World Charm Meets Modern Inspiration At The Swan House

Old meets new at the Atlanta landmark, The Swan House. The venue’s neutral tones made for the perfect complement to a colorful mid-summer inspiration shoot. Krissy Campbell worked tirelessly to create a design that mimicked the couple’s full of life and laughter personalities, and the result is a bright and vivid dream come true. You’ll fall head over heels in love with each inspired image by Bonphotage. Take a peek at the full gallery for all the picture-perfect details.

From BonphotageWe were so excited to use brighter color in a meaningful and timeless way while still adhering to the organic, outdoor elements and Old World, timeless elegance of the property. We chose warmer tones in the paper that helped pull out the soft pinks and neutrals of the architecture and kept the floral within the warmer and deep tones to pop off the cooler velvet Mist Blue table linens.

We chose cleaner lines, neutral colors, and modern elements for the contemporary couple through the beautiful clean white china, gold flatware, candle stands, and clear textured glassware from TableMade. Each guests’ name was scripted on soft paper name cards tied with ribbon, and every menu was handpainted with a delicate script and design.

We hope the laughter, life, color, and romance of this day inspires other couples and professionals to continue to have confidence in the details of their story and personality. We love being able to showcase that these customized and fun details can still within the timeless and elevated spheres of design.

The 5 Major Benefits of an Intimate Wedding You May Not Have Thought of Before

If you’re looking for reasons to be excited about a smaller guest count for your Big Day, look no further. Lucky for you, Amanda Olivia Photography is breaking down the 5 major benefits of an intimate wedding you most likely haven’t already thought of! From quality time with your VIPs, to quality details that make all the difference. Keep on scrolling to find out why intimate weddings are taking the wedding world by storm. Oh, and for some pretty inspiration along the way, head on over to the full gallery of today’s styled shoot, made beautiful by Whitewood Events and Amy Osaba Events.

From Amanda Olivia PhotographyHaving an intimate wedding is all about having a Small in Size but Rich in Story experience and I TRULY believe that. Having an intimate wedding comes with it’s own benefits that are worth mentioning and celebrating. There are important aspects to point out about an intimate wedding day that you may have not thought of before:

01 | Quality time with your favorite people

By inviting just your closest family and friends you can spend one-on-one quality time with the people you love. A wedding is all about being surrounded and supported by those you love most and there is no better way to do that than with an intimate guest count. By keeping your guest list small you can avoid all those awkward conversations with distant relatives or family colleagues that you really don’t want to have. By keeping it small you know exactly who you’re going to be spending time with on your wedding day

02 | Quality Details

This is a big one! When you have a smaller guest count you can make every. Single. Detail. Count! I don’t know about you – but I’m a details girl, and I want everything I have at my wedding day to contribute intentionally to my story and not just take up space.

So what can that look like?

Beautiful personalized paper goods:
– You can create custom invites to send to your family and friends getting them excited about the wedding experience you’re creating.
– Personalized “thank you” cards at every guests seat to let them know how special they are to you.
– Custom vow books that are as unique as your love story
– A beautiful welcome sign and seating chart that showcases the experience your guests are about to partake in.
– Keepsake ceremony programs that you can look back through years to come feeling the story you created on your wedding day.

Incredible florals everywhere you look:
Flowers are SUCH a beautiful and important part of the wedding experience. By having a smaller guest count you can really allow your floral budget to cover:

– The bouquets and boutonnières of your dreams for you and your bridal party to hold.
– Statement ceremony pieces that transform your guests into a new place.
– A curated floral design that brings your intimate garden dreams to live at the dinner table.

Your dream tablescape
So often we connect over meals with family and friends – and having a meal over an intentionally designed table….it doesn’t get better than that. By hosting an intimate wedding you can carefully pick out all your favorite elements to celebrate with:

– Linens
– Dinnerware
– Flatware
– Chargers
– Candles
– Vases/Vessels

Goodness…there is so much creativity that goes into the tablescape process that the possibilities are really endless! An intimate wedding ensures that you contribute intentionally to your story with only the highest quality details and thought.

03 |A heartfelt ceremony

Traditionally at large weddings the officiant and maybe one or two people speak, BUT at an intimate ceremony you can really create the experience you want. You can sink into the time you have with those present. You can relax knowing your most important guests are present and even allow them to share a few words and create a more inclusive ceremony experience.

04 | A more relaxed experience

By surrounding yourself with your closest people you can relax your shoulders and take a deep breath because THIS IS IT! These are your people. Since you have more time to chat with each guest and soak in your surroundings you can really enjoy the experience and not worry about missing anything or having to say hello to Aunt Judy before she takes off for the night. An intimate wedding ensures you focus on relationships and your story opposed to putting on a show. 05 |More time to create amazing portraits with your photographer

Selfishly this one is my favorite, but by having a smaller guest count you can create more breathing room in your timeline so we can get creative and fun with your bride and groom and family portraits. I’m ready to run with you in fields, do some dancing, hop on a boat across the lake, and get creative with the space you have to again tell your unique story. At the end of your wedding day you leave with your spouse, your memories, and your photographs. So let’s ensure your images match the beautiful story you want to tell.

To the bride who spends most of her spare time flipping through the pages of Vogue, this inspiration is perfect for you.

From Janna Brown Design“The Swan,” where opulence and wild beauty collide, in this ultra romantic editorial hosted by Janna Brown Design.

Inspired by the juxtaposition of fierceness and femininity found spilling out of the pages of Vogue, our editorial balanced delicate, wild blooms and ethereal fabrics with immense architecture, powerful posing, and the intensity between our couple and the lens. 

Our bride donned an impressive gown by Dana Harel Design, with a cascading train and a sheer bustier, adorned with a plethora of delicate hand-sewn flower petals. She carried a bouquet composed of wild jasmine, elaeagnus, and garden roses, finished with trailing silk ribbon. 

Our table details mimicked the bride and her bouquet: soft cream fabrics paired with untamed florals. Tara Spencer created vellum menus which sat atop each place setting, while the flowers nestled into a bed of cream fabrics…
