Autumn wedding inspiration with a hint of lilac | Photo by Jenna Henderson | Read more -  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=81230

Anyone else feel like fall is just flying right on by? Seems like just yesterday we were sipping summer cocktails poolside! Annnyway, we figured this beautiful bit of wedding inspiration from the team behind Cedarwood Weddings in Nashville would be just the way to kick off such a festive month ahead. Channeling the romance of autumn, they designed a color story that’s both warm and cool, feminine and earthy, wild and subdued.

Photog Jenna Henderson captured all the delicate details, from the berries in their floral crown to the cutest custom drink stirrers. See for yourself, below…

Linda of Cedarwood Weddings tells us, Sometimes a few unique elements inspires a complete eventscape, and in this case, the pairing of amber and plum was inspired by Panache’s “Leaf ” dessert plate in plum, along with Cedarwood’s collection of vintage amber glassware, raw linen, antique gold velvet, and wood.

On their muse, from WITTY, We’ve loved and admired the photography of Alexandra Valenti for some time and wanted to style a shoot inspired by one of her photos. We kept the colors of the furniture black and white and the fun pastel tones in our florals and styling… and of course, our hair.

Rachael of Lace & Likes says, Erica of 1011 Makeup created a natural look on all of us with thick brows and soft lips, and Kate Doyle added twigs and feathers and copper bits to our hair. This crew was an unreal team to work with; everyone brought something to the table that really made the shoot all that it is.

Thanks to the crew below for such a unique editorial!

Saddlerock Ranch wedding | Photo by Lindsey Johnson | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=81123

It may be Halloween, but this sunny SoCal wedding with the dreamiest of floral arrangements simply couldn’t wait until Monday. Ya feel? E + J are both wedding photographers themselves, so they set the bar high when it came to their own big day. Even after seeing countless California venues, Saddlerock Ranch stole their hearts. Then fellow photog-friend Lindsey Johnson Photography swooped in to capture it all just how they’d always hoped…

The bride designed all the paper goodness, like invites, menus, programs, etc., herself. Such fun prints!

They envisioned an intimate outdoor wedding (they had 85 guests; the venue allows 100) that they could dress up themselves. So they enlisted Twine Events for the planning + Oak and the Owl for the floral arrangements. Emily suggests hiring a wedding planner, even if you think you can do it alone or with the help of family, so you and your loved ones can be fully present the entire time. She says:

Being wedding photographers, we’ve seen people stress over the small stuff. But really, it’s just one big party that you get to celebrate with all of your friends and family. So make sure the big things are what you want, the venue, the main décor, and don’t stress over little things, or be glued to one idea.

A few notes from Lindsey… Even among all this gorgeousness, the real star of the day was the excitement and love between Emily and Justin along with their family and friends. There were really nothing but smiles to be seen in every direction. Both families so happily celebrating. Friends laughing and toasting. Emily and Justin giving each other these sweet and intimate stolen glances and kisses. 

Congratulations!
