If sequins can work in the décor, they’re sure to work with the dress. The ladies that pulled together today’s midcentury modern wedding inspiration merged soft bohemian touches with more masculine vibes, establishing a balance between the stark lines of midcentury modern + those romantic boho accents. From planner and designer Ashley of Two Be Wed‘s choice in furniture and décor to this gold-dipped gown, the contrast isn’t lost on us. Balance is key, friends!
The goal: to combine feminine and masculine elements in a beautiful + seamless way.
Dana says, The perfect example of this (and one of my favorites!) is the gown by Truvelle, as it starts as a simple sweetheart neckline and then ends with an amazing gold-dipped sequin train. Everything about this shoot was more than we could have hoped from the beautiful hand painted cake by Buttercup and to the beautiful and flawless florals by the talent Flower Power Productions!

Anyone else totally enamored by all the springy bouquets popping up lately? It’s amazing how color preferences can completely change with the seasons. Even if you haven’t set your sights on a garden wedding, the photos Sarah Hannam snapped at the Illuminated Collective wedding photography workshop in Cotswolds, England are pretty darn charming. Abundant peonies, sumptuous desserts… What’s not to love?
Sarah explains, Barnsley House is a highly sought after wedding venue, as the gardens are simply beautiful. Literally everywhere you look is a perfect place to take a stroll amongst lichen-covered statues, trickling fountains, topiary, and riots of colourful blooms, or sit awhile daydreaming beneath the wisteria arbor. Ceremonies are held in the tranquility of a folly beside the ornamental pond garden, which is where we photographed until the sun disappeared behind the trees and the air grew cool. As the day drew to a close, it was time to say goodbye to this awesome team and head back west, but not before enjoying a little supper in the village pub. In hindsight it is probably a good thing I missed the hotel’s outdoor spa or I think I may never have left.
