Aqua and gold wedding ideas | Photo by Tasha Rae Photography | 100 Layer Cake

If you’ve never considered the possibility of gold + aqua for your wedding colors, time to add it to your list of potential palettes. Surrounded by crisp wedding whites, the gold leaf and dip dye textures that Stephanie of Roses and Lace styled up added an air of sophistication to such a playful color combo, and we totally dig the end result…

Thanks to Tasha Rae Photography for sharing these photos with us today!

The team wanted to take the classic floral archway a step further with the dip dyed backdrop, and it ended up setting the mood for the rest of the details – like the table settings, décor, and neutral flowers.

All the fresh greenery at New Orleans Pharmacy Museum is quite the sight. Stephanie tells us, The New Orleans Pharmacy Museum is an intimate wedding venue surrounded by old brick, trees, and the sounds of the French Quarter. When we designed the shoot, our main purpose was to take the garden setting and add a pop of creative details to it.

Modern bohemian wedding | Photo by Max and Friends | Event design Amorology | 100 Layer Cake

We’re sure glad photogs Christian + Reinna captured even the tiniest details of Jacyln and Tommy’s bohemian backyard wedding. Hailing from San Diego + Phoenix, their hometowns were the inspiration for their southwestern romance theme, and according to Jacyln, it was the stuff of desert dreams. (We believe it.) They transformed her childhood home into a boho oasis for 250 that rivals even the grandest venues, and the team at Amorology played up the theme with a ton of southwest inspired accents.

This little anecdote made us smile:

When we came out of our church’s ceremony, we were hungry, and went straight to In-N-Out with our entire wedding party, dressed to the nines. We caused quite a stir, but I thought, I’m the bride, and when else can I look this gorgeous eating a hamburger? Love and hamburgers, that’s what it’s all about.

A few deets from Amorology… Playing off of a dreamcatchers theme, we created a backdrop reading “Today is a dream” and used Casa de Perrin‘s gorgeous china, a collection of different vessels, wood menus with laser cut antlers, brass to house Twigg Botanicals succulents, and turquoise rocks.

(Peruse Jacyln’s Pinterest for even more inspo.)

The venue, via Jaclyn:

It’s my home, but transformed. The tennis court was metamorphosed into a tented outdoor garden. We brought in grass to cover the floor, draped tapestries lightly over head, just enough to be inside but still under the stars, and a stage for the band was erected.

Our band, the Wayne Foster Band, sang us into the reception, and set the mood for the rest of the party. Our walk down the aisle transitioned right into our first dance. The song was “I Love You Always Forever” by Donna Lewis. We are 90s kids, so an airy and sugary love song was just what we wanted.

Jaclyn says, Once I stepped back and let Heather of Amorology take the reins, I actually got to enjoy my engagement. You’re only engaged for a short time, so be sure to take it all in. Don’t rush through.

Congrats guys! Cakies, stay tuned for more aqua goodness later today. We’re kinda on a roll.

Smogge Shoppe wedding | Photo by Chaz Cruz | 100 Layer Cake

C + C met at a mutual friend’s house back in 2009, but they didn’t go on a first date until a bit later when Charlton started working at the same company as Cindy. (Cindy didn’t even realize their first date was a date until he showed up with a bottle of wine!) Luckily it was a good one, because four years later they set out to plan the ultimate wedding day slash bash for their family + friends. The first thing they did? Book SmogShoppe of course. Thanks to Chaz Cruz Photography for sending these snaps our way!

They opted out of wedding formalities like cake cutting and the bouquet toss. Instead, Cindy surprised her mom by presenting her with the bouquet. They also created a custom vinyl jacket with photos for a guest book—another nod to their personalities—and of course, spent time crafting the perfect reception soundtrack to party to.

Who needs ceremony décor when you have a succulent wall, right?

Cindy’s fave décor detail:

We created faux-mini Polaroid images of our guests, using some of our favorite photos of them, and used those to note their seat and meal choices. Some photos were sweet, where others were just hilarious! We had the opportunity to secretly peek down at our guests as they arrived and see their reaction to escort card display. There were a lot of surprised faces and laughs—it was such a bonus to our big day!

Charlton and I wrote our own vows, so we marked a day the week before the wedding where we would have our vows ready to share with each other. We ended up making dinner reservations at a restaurant where we had our very first date (the date I didn’t know was a date), and we read our vows to each other in private. Looking back after the wedding was over, I was so grateful we did that, as it gave us a chance to sincerely deliver and receive these important words to and from each other.

Cindy & Charlton from Matthew Forrey of FORREY films.

Congratulations to Charlton and Cindy! Wishing you the best.

Modern Romeo and Juliet wedding inspiration | Photo by Carmen and Ingo | Design Chic Weddings in Italy | 100 Layer Cake

This shoot is srsly rad. Dreamt up by Chic Weddings in Italy and inspired by Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet (aka the Leonardo DiCaprio version we all know and love), it conveys the story of two young lovers and their whirlwind romance, complete with a one of a kind color palette, youthful details, and stills by Carmen & Ingo that are anything but still. Take a peek…

On the venue, Byblos Art Hotel (coolest place ever?):

We have chosen for this project a historical villa just outside Verona, Italy, the only property of this grandeur with a contemporary pop interior decor, combining therefore classic with modern. This theme runs throughout the shoot, in the usage of jeans to contrast the dandy elegant style of the suit that Romeo wears for the wedding ceremony.

They chose models Luca Piovesan & Angela Robusti to express the fresh and careless enthusiasm of their relationship. Stunning.

The plot of the shoot starts with the evening ball where the couple meets, continues in one of the rooms of the villa and ends with their secret marriage. The female model’ skirts used were Dolce & Gabbana vintage collection of the 90s and we wanted to show a psychedelic love tucked in the Romantic Villa Amista’ in Verona.

Thanks to Chic Weddings in Italy + Carmen & Ingo for sharing such an original take on Romeo & Juliet with us today! We sure wouldn’t mind seeing a bride + groom take this concept and run with it.

Rustic black and white wedding idea | Photo by Jenavieve Belair | 100 Layer Cake

Sometimes an event design lacks color and you really miss it, and then there’s this. Julia of Luminous Lines Creative (who not only conceptualized the shoot but whipped up everything from the paper goods to signage and more) added color with only a few earthy details in this black and white scene at The Loft on Pine in Long Beach, CA. Upholding every sense of the idea that opposites attract, she combined a spread of opposites right down to the modern tableware and the rustic decor beside it.

Thanks to Jenavieve Belair for sharing these photos!

Julia says, As a creative, I am always torn between clean lines with bold elements, and soft spoken neutrals with organic strokes. Just like great relationships and famous love stories, I wanted to see these opposite concepts come together to create an unexpected romance.

They incorporated a little gold, natural elements, and calligraphy to soften the look a bit… Bold shapes combined with brush strokes, calligraphy and brush lettering accompanied with softer elements such as tea stained silk ribbon and vellum envelopes, helped tie everything together.

And we thought we’d seen it all in last week’s Easter desserts by Sweet & Saucy Shop. Now, a calligraphed cake? They’re killin’ it.
