Air plant and wildflower bouquet

Sometimes the best thing you can do for an event design is combine two distinctly different elements, like the desert greens + softer petals in this bouquet, or romantic hand lettering amongst geometric shapes and modern tableware. Kelsey Rae Designs took the succulent garden, tiled wall, and velvet chairs of their Del Mar venue to bring a modern twist to a seaside retreat—basically, the best of both worlds, as captured by Plum & Oak Photo.

Nothing better than a big, beautiful xerographica air plant at the center of your bouquet.

Geometric modern wedding inspiration

Kelsey explains, The moment Elyse Barton of Plum & Oak Photo and I stepped onto L’Auberge Del Mar’s property, we knew we had found a gem. With its exposed brick exterior and ivy covered walls, we were surprised to walk in and find a little piece of retro heaven right in Del Mar, California.

Cast Calligraphy sure has a way with loopy letters.

Kelsey says, Inspired by clean and chic geometrics such as our love for terrariums and air plants, Elyse went to work building the giant geo structure that soon became the focal point of our shoot. We wanted brides who share our love for geometric shapes to be able to incorporate it beautifully into their day. The exaggerated size of our geometric structure can only be matched by the heightened emotions of a wedding day. It is breathtaking, modern, sophisticated, and most importantly different.

Red and pink bouquet

World’s dreamiest wedding bouquet?! Sooo pretty. We recently caught sight of the captivating seaside bridal shoot that Leighanne Herr Photography sent our way and why YES, every other photo is as swoon-worthy as this first one. To inspire the bride who feels drawn to the water, Leighanne + the team below created three ethereal looks and set out for a coastal paradise—with a piano and some heavenly accessories, of course.

A few words on Leighanne’s inspiration…

Powerful and gentle, serene and chaotic, water embodies so many characteristics, and its melody is different to each individual captivated by its call. I aspired to create looks that depicted a few of these characteristics and that could be useful for a bride planning her wedding day by the sea. I had an old piano that I knew I wanted to incorporate into the shoot and together with the stunning gowns, the floral arrangement in the seashell and the piano placed in the ocean everything came together just as I had envisioned!
