Mid century modern bar cart

Sweet ‘n simple. Some things are better that way. The key ingredient? Killer details. In regard to this wedding vignette, those details would be mid-century modern furniture set inside a Victorian home, all brought together with a feminine color palette and clean accessories. Like we said, killer details. Thanks to Danielle Poff Photography for sending this our way!

Kate of Pieces By Violet explains, The General’s Daughter, built in 1864, provided the perfect Victorian canvas for the shoot. The airy bay windows breathed life into our cocktail lounge, and the lush grounds widened our color palette with beautiful pastel yellows and greens. I just love how the simple lines of the dress, jewelry, and furniture complement the flowing beauty of the space and of our bride.

Kate says, The inspiration for this shoot came from my never ending love of vintage Eames furniture, and the clean, simple lines of the mid-century era. But rather than putting together a typical mid-century modern shoot, I wanted to soften the look with an ornate Victorian setting and a pure, fresh color palette. The goal was to create something very feminine, very stylized, and also very different.

Studio Mondine has a way with ranunculus, don’t you think?

Pink peony bouquet

How about breathtaking blooms and a romantic portrait sesh to kick Monday off? These snaps are by the talented Jen Huang from her most recent film workshop in Santa Barbara. Attendees also learned calligraphy from Paperfinger + floral design by Poppies & Posies, rounding out the wedding gorgeousness. The workshop also consisted of an intimate dinner + shoot at Butterfly Beach.

Was it a success, you ask? These photos kinda speak for themselves…

Bianca and AJ’s bridal shoot echoed the fun, bright colors present in the welcome dinner hosted by Jen and designed by Sierra of Poppies & Posies and Cassandra of Borrowed Blu. Sierra has a love for color. She paired beautiful bright blooms from Florabundance with beeswax outdoor candles and galvanized metal trays for a cozy but casual look. Cassandra pulled in the warmth with beautiful wooden plates, wood, copper silverware, and copper glassware. Bryn from Paperfinger brought in a beachy vibe with indigo and navy nametags and a foldout menu.

Calligraphy love sign

This garden wedding inspiration captured by Yasmin Sarai is too cute. With a palette of pastel pink, peach, coral, and pops of cotton candy blue, it’s flirty but sweet, and comes complete with tons of fun ideas like a cupcake decorating bar and a game station. Yes please.

Jessica of Hee Weddings and Events says, As soon as you step into Shelldance Orchid Gardens, you’ll be immediately captivated by the uniqueness of the greenhouse. The whole design was drawn out to complement the greenery and the diverse plants by incorporating delicate spring hues of peach, blush pink, and coral… Being a huge sweets fan, I couldn’t forget a dessert bar! The desserts were showcased on a vintage dresser and included delicious soft pink and creamy orange frosted cupcakes and gold-brushed macarons, which looked similar to the colors of sherbert ice cream, adding to the whimsy of the day.

Long wedding veil

The Pinewood Estate at Bok Tower Gardens in Central Florida is the epitome of Mediterranean-inspired elegance. The team knew right away that the 1930s mansion would inspire their entire wedding design, while the nearby octagon-shaped garden would be especially ideal for a ceremony. With the venue as a muse, geometric shapes, earth tones, and a lush green landscape became the basis for photog Tiffani Jones + Lisa of Wish Vintage Rentals’ Mediterranean vibes.

They imagined their bride as part of this family estate, channeling someone who appreciates tradition but isn’t afraid to embrace individuality.

Knowing that our bride would not have settled for a look that was just like everybody else’s, we were grateful to The Dress Theory in Nashville for allowing us to showcase the spectacular Rue de Seine’s ‘Colette’ gown. Its classic style but still unique shape and colors couldn’t have been more perfect for the shoot. I completely love how the custom-made veil by Olivia Gray and hair and make up from Brie & Brie complete our bridal look with a pure simplicity reminiscent of the 1930s.
