It seems that a setting as stunning as Antelope Island State Park in Utah can’t get more beautiful, but this dreamy shoot proves otherwise. Designer Martha Hatfield pulled from the unique backdrop to create a breathtaking scene for any outdoor setting. The whole thing was captured by photographer Claire Marika.

A delicate DIY wire crown is accessory enough for this ethereal setting…

But of course, a shimmering nature-inspired ring doesn’t hurt either!

Tips for creating a similar bridal look, c/o Martha: Opt for a gown that has an ethereal quality to it to add to the understated elegance of the day. Be sure to work closely with your hair and makeup artist to create a soft look that complements the gown you’ve selected. The final touch? An elegant wire and bead crown that can be crafted in the days leading up to your wedding day.

Martha, on complementing nature: A sophisticated palette of soft neutrals allows for the natural beauty of the blossoms in any arrangement to shine. Wood chairs pair nicely with the neutral color palette and can echo the tones found in your outdoor location. A simple announcement suite, complete with deckled edges, can set the tone of the event for your guests while feeling cohesive with the location, tablescape and overall aesthetic of the day.

Looking for examples of beautifully done DIYs? This Santa Barbara wedding is chock full of ‘em. Friends and fam came together to assist with everything from napkin settings to escort cards to the cake, while Maia created the pots for the seating assignments. Even the succulents came from the groom’s mother’s garden. How amazing is that? Maia says, Every person involved in the wedding knew us personally… So it had a very intimate and personal feel. With so much support, the couple was able to snag photographer Daniele Rose of Lavender & Twine, who captured all the special moments of this SoCal wedding.

This Lazaro gown looks too perfect under the sunlight. The lucky bride was able to save on it by purchasing from a resale site.

Crafty ladies, you’re gonna love this. Allow us to introduce you to Bloominous. Bloominous is a company whose goal is to make DIY floral arranging easy. They have a ton of cute kits you can choose from, with flowers to fit your wedding style and colors. They send you prepped, cut-to-order flowers, plus instructions and everything else you need to make your own bouquet, centerpiece, or boutonniere.

We tried out the Bloominous Party Pop collection, full of pretty coral and pink blooms. It’s elegant with a good dose of sass—perfect for the modern, color-loving gal. One of the other great things about Bloominous is that they are launching their online Flower Market later this month, where you can also order a la carte blooms to personalize your arrangements a little further. We added peonies to our Party Pop arrangements, since we’d be downright silly not to take advantage of peony season!

First, we used Bloominous’ easy-to-follow video to make the basic centerpiece from the kit…

Then, because we like to think out of the box and know some of you guys do too, we used the Party Pop florals to make a floral chandelier.

All you need is…
wire floral wreath frame
floral tape
- string or ribbon of your choice.

Super easy!
