Most of us have at least an idea of what season we’d most like our big day to take place within. But that doesn’t necessarily translate well to where you live or what your venue is like. Jeff Brummett Visuals, Ginger Roots Florals + the team behind today’s shoot had precisely that in mind when they dreamed up this fall picnic theme—Texas is a beauty, but it doesn’t show off in the fall quite like the northern states. So for this event, they went straight to the details… Starting with a most lovely autumn gown + a rich, full bouquet of course.

In order to have a bold dress without it conflicting with the colors in the bouquets and décor, they looked at the burgundy stitching of the gown and chose colors that complemented it specifically.

We used seasonal dahlias, eucalyptus, handpicked Japanese maple and ranunculus. By using colors in the detail stitching, the bouquet holds its own without being distracting and still fitting in the color scheme of the outfit and the day.

One last tip: Consider using different colors in the ‘maids’ bouquets to make them unique and different than the bridal. That way the bride’s really pops!

Sigh… That dress!

Kudos to the team below for showing us just how versatile a fall theme can be.

South Italian food market themed wedding | Photo by Cinzia Bruschini | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=81762

Guys, Olivia + Stefano’s Italian wedding was pretty darn epic. With Masseria Potenti for a venue (which they have nothing but good things to say about!), they hosted a 3-day event with different themes: First, a “Travellers and Troubadours” theme that included wood-fired pizza, music + entertainment, and bonfires in the garden. Then, an Italian market-inspired wedding with canapés served in food stalls and a banquet style dinner. Lastly, a “1950s Beach Party and Seafood Grigliata”, where everyone rocked 50s hairstyles and swimming hats, dined on BBQ seafood, and surrounded themselves with inflatable seagulls, rings, and dolphins. Whew! Does this sound like the most amaze wedding weekend ever, or what?! We say YES!

Photog Cinzia Bruschini, who they loved for her intimate way of photographing each and every little moment, captured the whole event for us all to marvel at:

Olivia’s original gown wasn’t finished with only two days left (gasp!!). But she found a tailor in London to customize a drop-dead-gorgeous Reem Acra dress she found at Harrods. Not only was her gown not ready in time, but neither were the bridesmaids’ gowns. Luckily, J. Crew saved the say with mint green + ivory dresses.

The ceremony itself was on a hilltop in a Basilica cathedral in Oria, near their venue. Goodness…

Olivia wanted a unique bouquet that would last. She chose silk flowers + unripe blackberry stems paired with tie-dye ribbon, and collaborated with florist La rosa Canina to bring all the floral details to life. Eva of Chic Weddings in Italy also styled everything with Olivia’s vibrant aesthetic to mind… a true collaborative effort.

The bride’s most unforgettable moment:

Driving from the church to the venue after we were married, just Stefano and I, with the sun setting, speeding along the road, in a classic Fiat 500 that had just been given to us outside the church by our parents—an amazing and very unexpected present! The roof was down, the cans were clattering along the road and the extra large balloons were being slowly torn away by the wind and flying off into the distance! It was like we were literally starting a journey into our future together.

Olivia says, We love travel, different cultures, and embracing the environment around us, wherever we are in the world. I think the style throughout the wedding represented our desire to enjoy the everyday things we have around us without the need to overcomplicate.

We always love to see one of our favorite wedding trends, bohemian, kicked up a notch. (Think back to those vibrant woodsy bohemian wedding ideas from last month, if you’d like a little proof.) So when these images by Danielle Poff popped up in our inboxes, we knew they’d fit right in (and then some!). Ashley of Buzzworthy Events whipped up a scene loaded with lovely details all wrapped into one without feeling even the slightest bit busy. See what we’re getting at below:

Model Stevie donned a vintage 1930s slip dress adorned with a shoulder chain by Nous Savons in Oakland, CA. A geometric hairpiece and a vintage-inspired ‘do by Katie Nash completed the ensemble. Gorg!

Your new fave color combo, right? Ashley of Buzzworthy Events says, I was most motivated by textures and adding depth into everything. I wanted richness and colors that added to that feel. I really dug deep to find the right elements​ like rich brown and indigo​.
