Yesterday’s ballerina bridal editorial was dreamy, right? Today’s shoot by Alixann Loosle Photography has a similar ethereal vibe, except taken outdoors against greenery and river rocks. The team really wanted to share a bride with a bit of an edge, and model Evelyn Eslava‘s pastel locks did the trick, we think!

Stephanie says, Originally inspired by a small brass four-leaf clover trivet found in my grandmother-in-law’s sitting room, I floated the idea of a St. Patrick’s Day inspiration shoot to the ever talented Cody, of Amore Events by Cody. Cody, who has an innate talent for bringing her concepts to life in the most breathtaking way, brought this St. Patty’s Day inspiration to another level. From the delicate touches on the lush green tablescape, to the playful and punchy lomo camera, each element brought its own level of style and elegance.

Ethereal vintage wedding inspiration with a ballerina | Photo by Andre Teixeira of Brancoprata | Read more -  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Ethereal-vintage-wedding-inspiration

If you were smitten with the flawlessly draped gown we featured the last time we had an editorial with dancers up on 100lc, you’ll be pleased you happened across this post today. Portugal-based duo Brancoprata (made up of photog André + designer Sofia) chose an airy Gio Rodrigues gown that effortlessly envelopes their ballerina bride, Ana, in this dreamy scene:

André says, This editorial was inspired by a suite of drawings that Man Ray published with poems by Paul Eluard in 1937. He later remarked that in those drawings his hands were dreaming and that he wanted to create ‘a contrasting of similar and different forms at the same time’. The epiphany of movement (our greatest inspiration for this editorial), the graceful gestures of the hands, takes us to a parallel universe, where a monochromatic color scheme unavoidably is in control! Portuguese ballerina Ana’s understanding of movement made her a natural model for an ethereal scene.

Green and white bouquet

Fresh greenery, simple romantic calligraphy, and subtle sweets make up the recipe for today’s vintage-inspired shoot. Dana + Keren, the gals at Your Wedding Project brought organic, vintage touches to Found and Made Co.’s fresh warehouse space (which is available for studio rentals, Pittsburg creatives!). With a juxtaposition of high industrial windows, cement accents, and metal against the antique sofa + thrifted décor, we’re super into all the charming touches below…

From photogs Dana + Keren:

The perfect stage for a vow exchange was achieved by another ingenious DIY idea: hanging tulle and ribbon, illuminated with strings of bistro lights, along the warehouse’s steel beam using simple magnets creating a soft and romantic backdrop. The concrete candleholders were arranged along the chair rows to bring the same romance to the aisle.

The concrete planters and candleholders also served as the centerpieces of the picturesque table scape. The rustic farm table was decked out in antique silverware, clean white plates, and neutral linens. Beautiful menus and a sprig of yellow mimosas flowers added a pop of color and dimension to the design. Guests sat around the table on cool metal café chairs and cozied up on the beautiful green antique sofa; the contrast made for such stylish and eclectic seating. The heads of the table were meant to seat the Bride and Groom, whose attention would be drawn to by the chic ivory upholstered chairs with a bronze studded detail trim.

Flowers in your hair

Elegant engagement party inspiration with Crate and Barrel | Photo by Jennifer Young Studio | Read more -  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/elegant-engagment-party-inspiration

We love ANY excuse to throw a party and seeing as it’s now commonplace for couples to plan their wedding (and be engaged) for over a year, throwing a festive fête to mark your engagement has never been more en vogue. Or if you’re like us and already hitched, planning a party for friends freshly betrothed is a welcome way to put the gifts from your own gift registry to excellent use. We styled this elegant, cocktail-focused engagement party with our friends at Crate and Barrel to inspire stylish spring entertaining of any kind this year.

But first, let’s not forget the engagement party gift registry! Sure it’s part of your regular gift registry, but we think it’s nice to include a special group of items that guests will be excited and inclined to give for this particular occasion. Did you catch our top engagement registry picks we posted on Friday? We love the idea of focusing your gift registry on the theme of your engagement party. Cocktails, of course, in this case!

Signature drinks look so much more delicious in special glassware. Plan your registry around glassware that suits the drinks you love to make together, and add a few unexpected pieces, like fancy decanters, to dress up your home bar.

PS did you know Crate and Barrel has a beautiful line of metallic frames? Perfect for the engagement photos! *wink*

Love those hex appetizer plates. Total conversation piece at the buffet line, if you ask us. And affordable enough to register for two dozen so you’ll always have enough for a future party.
