It seems like we’ve been waiting forever for The Great Gatsby to come out, and we’re so excited opening week is finally here that we’ve decided to kick it off with this gorgeous 1920s inspiration shoot. As we were putting this feature together we were chatting about how much we can’t wait to dress up and have a girls night out at the theatre… so, we figured we’d gift that night out to you as well, with a fancy movie ticket giveaway. More deets below, but for now ooh and ahh over this Gatsby inspired wedding shoot by Lauren Scotti and Just Wenderful! Click here to see the full gallery of images.

The desert scene is such a great source of inspiration; the colors of the sand, plants and succulents, open skies, the sun… it’s all so vibrant and warm. Christine McGuigan Photography & Kate Whitecotton took that image and started combining all these great southwest-inspired prints and patterns, to give this shoot a vintage, desert feel; perfect for summer weddings. Check it out!
There’s a way to add modern touches to your spring wedding decor so that it’s not just pastels and soft florals. We love how rak designss and emmy-ray utilized the modern architecture of contemporary wedding venue, River Market Event Place. The playful spring accents seen in the glittered fabrics, pops of color in the floral arrangements, invitations, and graphic prints alongside the concrete floors and metal accents illustrate the perfect way to style a modern spring wedding.
We’re all for dramatic florals. Whether they’re used in centerpieces, hanging above tables, or in your bridal bouquet. Oh, you want to add florals to your hair too? Um, if they look like this then yes, yes, yes! Tinge Floral Design has always felt flowers photograph the most beautifully in the dark, so she worked with Blush Photography to create a dramatic affect with both the size & style of these headpieces as well as the lighting. They look more romantic and mysterious that way, no?
Brides, if you’re trying to come up with the perfect way to ask your favorite ladies to be your bridesmaids, take note. Host a party and ask them all at once, in style! The concept of this shoot was a “Bridesmaids Picnic” with a very playful, bohemian flair planned and styled by Sterling Social. The entire day was shot by Braedon Flynn with a lifestyle, editorial perspective….basically bringing a Free People catalogue to life! You can click here to see the full gallery of images.
Charming hand-made wooden boxes were presented to each girl with the words “I Choose You” inscribed on the outside. Filled with meaningful mementos and whimsical bridesmaid dress swatches, each bridesmaid-to-be was given a heartfelt note from the bride asking them to stand by her side on the wedding day. The note read…
“Your Role. I know weddings can become a lot of work for bridesmaids…so let it be known that the honor to have you stand by my side is simply that…an honor! Your presence and love you have always shown me throughout our friendship is all I need. As my bridesmaid your only role is to feel beautiful, hold some gorgeous flowers, make unbelievable memories with me, wipe away my happy tears, and understand how much your presence on this day is appreciated. Always know how grateful I am to call you family and realize how much I love you. Basically, you are standing by my side because you have made me the happiest, luckiest girl just by being you and being a part of my life! You’re a part of my heart and forever will be…my one and only request is to have a blast, laugh, dance and make sure that in all the commotion on this magical day you pull me aside to share a moment between you and I. A moment that I want with you on my wedding day…and one I will never forget and will always cherish.”
