DIY holiday wreaths | 100 Layer Cake

Bows and Arrows collaborated with Apryl Ann Photography to share a DIY that we’re all in need of- holiday wreaths. They can be kind of intimidating, right? They look SO pretty, you see a zillion ways to make them on Pinterest, but then you run out of time and end up buying one. Tsk, tsk. Well take a look at the wreaths down there. They look simple enough, yes? You’re going to make one of these this weekend, watch. They’re that easy!

Black and gold Art Deco wedding inspiration | Photo by Lauren Peele Photography | 100 Layer Cake

The glamour, fancy cocktails, gold details, architectural elements. We totally get why Art Deco wedding themes are so popular right now. There’s always something that draws you in, and for Jen Rios Design and Lauren Peele Photography, it was the scallop pattern, which you’ll see they used in a big way. While the shoot is pretty glam, it was nothing too over the top or dramatic, just gorgeous lines and simple details to really show off the style of their Fort Worth, Texas venue, T & P Station.

Black tie San Francisco wedding | photo by Annie Mcelwain | 100 Layer Cake

It didn’t take long for this black tie stunner, photographed by Annie McElwain, to catch our eye. That bouquet alone is something else, isn’t it? But then again we’re talking about getting married in San Francisco here. There’s a picturesque spot on almost every corner of the city. And if you’re going to pick a venue with one of the best views of the bay, Legion of Honor is a beautiful place to start. And if you’re going to do a black tie affair, fashion is key, and Ashley (a fashion model), knows how to do it right.. while also honoring her Chinese culture. Take a peek!

Ashley’s day job as a fashion model came in handy when it came to what her ‘maids would wear and accessorize with. She had a friend loan out the designer clutches her bridesmaids carried instead of bouquets.

These are some seriously stylish bridesmaids, with their black gowns, fur boleros, designer clutches and orchids in their hair.

We love how her bouquet of red orchids, roses, dahlias, and fountain grass looks against her silk gown.

Their cake was made up of two heavenly flavors: Earl Grey tea with lemon buttercream and almond with caramelized pears and cream-cheese buttercream. Sounds amazing!
