Don’t get us wrong—we adore pretty pastels and airy, white wedding décor. But when we saw this shoot that Odalys Mendez, Simply Charming Socials, and Rosegolden Flowers put together, there was something refreshing about the rich and moody fall hues. It’s something you don’t see as often, that’s for sure! Holly from Rosegolden Flowers says, We wanted the photos to feel deeply romantic. Jewel and berry tones have a dramatic, sensual quality that we found very inspiring. Using bold color can be intimidating, so we wanted this shoot to show how they can be combined in an eclectic, graceful, and balanced way.

Kristin from Simply Charming Socials says, From a styling perspective, much of the inspiration for this shoot came from balance in weight, color, and texture. Where we had black candles, we chose some blush florals. With soft, fleshy figs, we added hard walnuts. Delicate glassware is anchored with petrified wood coasters. We chose a bulky wood table and set it with wiry bistro chairs.  Every element had an opposite counterpart.

You could say we have a soft spot for Amanda Judge and her Untamed Petals collection. And no, it’s not just because we featured her totally dreamy wedding on le blog a little while back. (Although it is one of our all-time favs!) Rad wedding or not, we’re just big fans of her veils, headpieces, sparkly sashes, and other stunning bridal accessories. Here’s a look at the latest collection…

Did we mention that Amanda also has a line of adorable party dresses under $100? It sounds too good to be true, but it’s for real. In fact this short little lacy number is one of them, and it’s only 78 buckaroos. There are a bunch of cute and colorful frocks in the mix that would make great bridesmaid dresses.
