Fall floral workshop in Virginia | Photo by Rachel May | Florals by Anthomanic | Read more -  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=84781

The scene above is pretty spectacular, isn’t it? A bride enveloped by all those garden roses and hydrangeas—nothing but gorgeousness. It’s from a Virginia floral workshop that Amanda Veronee of Anthomanic recently put on for local Virginia designers and we can only imagine how lovely it would’ve been to take part! The magic happened at Stevenson Ridge in Spotsylvania, VA, which, from perusing their website, looks like one beauty of a venue. (You have to check out this venue’s collection of historic buildings!) Big thanks to Rachel May Photography for letting us in on every last detail of this one!

Stevenson Ridge was the backdrop for the on-site, large design experience. Kat of Dear Sweetheart Events was the planner for the styled shoot portion, creating a fun and eclectic mixture of muted tones with charcoal black in a romantic aesthetic. Paisley and Jade provided gorgeous vintage rental furniture pieces that brought the styled shoot together with a unique style. The gorgeous detailing in the calligraphy and stationery design, as well as the adorable cake table under the floral canopy make this shoot so romantic and lovely!

Bohemian Big Sur Wedding | Photo by Evynn LeValley Photography | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=84558

Happy, happy Friday cakies! You’re gonna love this one: Photographer + design blogger Kim and her guy Seth, an engineer, opted for a glammed up natural curiosity-inspired theme for their Big Sur wedding, with feathers and antlers, glitter and gold. (As you can see on Kim’s Pinterest board, she knew just how to mesh the two.) Between all the lovely details + Evynn LeValley‘s breathtaking photography style, the whole thing was meant to be.

Their most memorable moment…

Her: Coming over the hill and seeing everyone looking back at me. I was crying before the ceremony even got started.

Him: Seeing her come over the hill.

Kim, on all her DIYs: The tissue paper tassels that we used as a photo backdrop, gold-leafed Geode bookends for table numbers, gilded feather garland on the cake table, and the crystal bottle stoppers. The ring box was a vintage find that I filled with moss and I wired succulents and Billy-button to create boutonnieres for the guys. For the girls I created custom totes with their names, had the robes embroidered with a floral monogram and made the sequined hangers. The welcome bags were created using a custom wedding map off of Etsy and tote bags. For favors we made s’mores kits.
