Red and pink bouquet

World’s dreamiest wedding bouquet?! Sooo pretty. We recently caught sight of the captivating seaside bridal shoot that Leighanne Herr Photography sent our way and why YES, every other photo is as swoon-worthy as this first one. To inspire the bride who feels drawn to the water, Leighanne + the team below created three ethereal looks and set out for a coastal paradise—with a piano and some heavenly accessories, of course.

A few words on Leighanne’s inspiration…

Powerful and gentle, serene and chaotic, water embodies so many characteristics, and its melody is different to each individual captivated by its call. I aspired to create looks that depicted a few of these characteristics and that could be useful for a bride planning her wedding day by the sea. I had an old piano that I knew I wanted to incorporate into the shoot and together with the stunning gowns, the floral arrangement in the seashell and the piano placed in the ocean everything came together just as I had envisioned!

So, who’s in the mood for a little color inspiration today? We always forget how fun these palettes are to dream up. With all the spring editorials to gush over as of late, the possibilities are endless.

100 Layer Cake color board

Quite a bit different than our last colorboard, yeah? (Of course gold is always a necessity.) If this year’s spring wedding trends have taught us anything, it’s that it’s A-ok to swap out the pink in favor of a more surprising shade (kumquat, anyone?). Purple hues are great alternatives too.

PS: If you haven’t seen the editorial that incredible cake came from, you gotta check it out.

Adding a selection of simple, sweet dessert table accessories to your Gift Registry pretty much guarantees that you’ll host a cute party of your own (hello, baby showers are probably coming your way!) after the wedding festivities have passed.

Short wedding dress

Morning guys! You’ll flip when you see all the geometric goodness in this mid-century modern inspiration shoot that Smitten Events sent our way. Their inspiration began with a mustard, geometric printed fabric and bloomed into a turquoise, gold, and silver wedding theme with clean lines and an essentially endless amount of spring blossoms.

Thanks to Kirill Bordon Photography for the photos.

Garden Party Flowers nailed it with the flowers for sure.

Florals in tangerine, gold, green and cream added another dimension to the tablescape and décor. Spring daffodils, hyacinth and tulips were tucked among ranunculus, poppies, roses and succulents which gave the arrangements a fresh, organic look, perfectly suited to the season.

The gals at Smitten Events explain, We complimented the mustard color with magenta and turquoise, and mixed in gold and silver. Continuing with the geometric theme, we used square dinnerware and angular cutlery, octagonal napkin rings with triangle-shaped place cards, and made triangular sculptures in bright colors to add pop to the natural wood harvest table. Even the Bertoia-style dining chairs, a mid-century staple, fit the geo-theme with their diamond pattern.
