It’s always so inspiring to hear about a shoot that came together off of one simple vision. For today’s inspo, that vision happened as Rachel of Rachel Leigh Photography explored the back roads of Natchitoches, LA and came across a cotton field. An editorial was born: cotton, gold, and the glowing light of sunset. She met a woman named Lacy who let her use her family’s field, and hooked up with talented locals to pull everything together. Thanks to Rachel for sending these shots our way!

Rachel tells us, Mandy Cathey Weddings & Events provided all floral arrangements, and did an incredible job. Gold succulents, baby’s breath, and lots of greenery really polished everything off. Mandy is so talented. Yes, she did say gold succulents!

Roxie Pinder, a baker from Montgomery, LA created the perfect cake that tasted as good as it looked! A pale pink colored buttercream icing was the perfect look. The two-tiered ruffled icing was to die for.

Guys, can we all just breathe a sigh of relief that it’s finally Friday?! And the Friday before Christmas, no less. Before the insanity begins, you have to check out Y + B’s French wedding set at the historic Château de Dangu. The venue gave off the romantic, formal vibe they wanted, but they added their own Gatsby twist in order to balance the it with a relaxed, unpretentious spirit for guests. Josh Goleman of The Wedding Artists Collective captured it all below:

The dining room was decorated with white antique lace tablecloths, giant chandeliers adorned with seasonal flowers, lots and lots of candles (we both hate artificial lighting to eat!) and some furniture we had already at home or found during the year at the flea market: on old gramophone, 1920s box and figurines, antique vases and our favorites novels from F.Scott Fitzgerald. The bride’s best friend Anais also performed Bruno Mars’ You Can Count On Me on ukulele.

Contemporary Scandinavian winter wedding inspiration | Photo by Tandem Photo | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=83407

Lemonbox Studios + the photogs at Tandem Photo love winter weddings and can really envision how much potential they have for the contemporary couple who wants their big day to be all things cozy, warm, and inviting. They had a Scandinavian theme in mind when they discovered this rustic venue in the Scottish countryside… AKA the ultimate backdrop for a festive, welcoming event like a winter wedding…

They used a monochrome color palette with pops of copper for warmth, then layered wool and wrapped twig place settings for texture + depth. All of the details contrasted with the clean lines with the The Byre at Inchyra’s rustic surroundings.

Lisa of Floral Menagerie says, Although generally viewed as the supporting cast in a floral arrangement, foliage can be used to create all kinds of texture and drama and that’s why I love it. The vision featured lots of beautiful contrasts and I wanted the florals to add to the softness and for the suspended wreaths of flowing winter foliage to bring a warmth to the table.

Okay guys, ready for something seriously sweet?

From Lemonbox Studios: The concept for our hot chocolate bar was to give guests a warming welcome drink, complete with a rum kick to warm them up on a frosty wedding day. The vintage spoons were filled with chocolate for melting into warm milk by the cake geniuses that are bakery47, who also provided a whole host of delicious sweet delights including cinnamon curls, delicate macarons, rochers and amaretti to fill the table.
