Is it safe to say it’s floral crown season? Brown Bunny Flowers def knows how to make it feel like spring. For these photos, Alexandria of Peppermint Plum Photography took to her family’s ranch; the pink florals + lace dress added a romantic vibe to the rural setting and the colors of the area had her dreaming…

Part of our daily winter routine while living on my family’s 40 acre ranch in California’s central valley has been going outside to gather as many sweet little tangerines as two tiny pairs of toddler hands can carry. Their waxy emerald leaves and jewel toned flesh was my central inspiration for this whimsical wedding shoot. A pastel palette with pops of vibrant orange, gold sequins, and shimmering nude effortlessly complimented one another.

And a sweet story from Peppermint Plum:

To me, the most inspiring part of this shoot was what was happening behind the scenes. The florist’s two children along with my three year old were climbing trees and catching lizards while we worked, and my 14 month old rode in the Ergo on my back for the entire shoot. It all just felt magical, playful, and full of whimsy, exactly what we wanted to capture. The two of us, along with the event planner who designed the tables and baked the desserts, are all mothers; mothers with an unyielding desire to create beauty and to inspire others through our art.

Thanks to everyone below for sharing today!

Rustic Nashville  wedding | Photo by Kristin Sweeting | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Rustic-Nashville-wedding

Cuties Jenn + Scott made sure their wedding wasn’t just about them. They wanted their friends and fam to know they’re appreciated, so they opted to create a whole experience. It was basically a big ‘thank you’ party for the guys who helped shaped them into the man + woman they are today. Amazing, right? Surprise treats from Jeni’s Ice Cream and photos as wedding gifts (they had a fun family/wedding party photo sesh with Kristin Sweeting before the rehearsal dinner) kicked off the big day…

Thanks to Kristin for sending along the photos below!

Their décor style: eclectic + intentional.

Jenn says, I had always dreamed of having an outdoor fall wedding but never thought it would become a reality. As we were searching for venues in Nashville, nothing seemed to fall into place, and somehow in the midst of the so-far-fruitless venue search, a family friend offered for us to use their property about an hour south of Nashville. When we visited for the first time, our jaws could not move from their dropped position as we toured the STUNNING 400 acres of fields, forests, and even a lake! It had everything we could have wanted including a house on the property where my very large family and I could stay during the wedding week. Scott and I both love being in and surrounded by nature, and this location far surpassed our wildest dreams for our special day.

The DIY list: J, S, + friends collected 200+ glass bottles for months, and Scott’s mom worked hours removing all the paper. Friends also sewed fabric together for the photobooth backdrop + decorated a custom arbor that Beam Design Group created (who also made a custom door for them, and later turned it into their headboard.) Another project was creating a huge dance party playlist that their friend Phil kept flowing all night as DJ.

Now for a wedding video by Matt G Video on Vimeo

As my 90 year old great aunt (who is the wisest person I have ever known) reminded me, “Remember that it is more important to plan for your marriage than plan for your wedding.” This was much easier said than done, but carve out time for the two of you to have date nights where no wedding talk is allowed. Remember why you are going through all of this crazy planning process in the first place.

Jenn also says to think outside the box with things like catering (there’s wasn’t super traditional, but yummy and way more affordtable) and that Excel spreadsheets are a MUST. Cheers guys!

Modern white and pink wedding ideas | Photo by  Bethany Michaela | Read more -  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/2015/03/02/modern-white-a…-wedding-ideas/

That white brick wall + concrete floor that Bethany Michaela captured in the above photo already have us thinking that Sky Gallery in NYC has got to make a pretty stellar industrial-modern wedding venue. But the crew at H&H Weddings + Tinsel & Twine sealed the deal with their design… Modern BHLDN décor, a dip-dyed dress, and two stylish brides are what really complemented the space.

Kate of H&H Weddings says, Rather than overdose on pastels, we, along with the über-talented team at Tinsel & Twine, opted for subtlety! The ombré dress, covered in petals was the pièce de résistance, so for the other model, we played off of the gentle blush tones by bringing in metallic brocade pants and a blush blouse to compliment. We wanted to keep things clean, sleek and predominately white. Because, you know, #solange. (PS: Those J. Crew skimmer pants are on sale in two colors, mhm!)

This cake = all kinds of perfect. We first spotted this darling BHLDN cake topper in action during our DIY Naked Cake tutorial, if you recall.

BHLDN was a major inspo behind the decor + fashion for this shoot. They have a ton of options for same sex couples, so everyone can enjoy their amaze pieces. Kate + the gals loved the hangers, cake toppers, bridal gown, and banners the most. (These chair signs come in any pair you need!)
