Yeah, Those cliffs and trees as a bridal setting have us pretty intrigued, too. For this earthy bohemian editorial, Brooke of Brooke Michaelson Photography hooked up with Alexia + Emma of Whimsy Events and Design and Sarah of On Solid Ground Vintage Rentals to get all the details in place. Can you imagine how fun it would be to get the creatives in your area together for a day of shooting in such a stunning place? Sounds amaze.

For part of the shoot, the bride wore a handcrafted headpiece by Whimsy Events and Design, and later they switched it out for this bold asparagus fern shawl. How unique is that?

Brooke says, The cliffs and rocky grounds along the St. Croix were the ideal spot for our vision! As we were setting up, we kept noticing large potholes filled with algae that had formed along the cliffs over time. It was the perfect marriage of beauty and wild earth.

Inspired by the raw elements that the Midwest brings, they tied rocks and minerals in with wild florals and these dusty, romantic colors.

The evening came to a close with a cozy lounge area complete with a vintage wicker love seat, a vintage coffee table overflowing with raw minerals, modern terrariums filled with even more raw minerals, and a mix of neutral pillows and throws. Behind the lounge sat a small vintage table holding a naked cardamom cake wrapped in thyme.

Fall botanical wedding inspiration | Photo by Photo by Erin Trimble | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=80579

Any vintage fans out there? How about botanical themes? Or a fairytale wedding gown? We’ve got them all today in this BEA-utiful botanical editorial by photog Erin Trimble. Here’s what the team says:

This styled shoot was all about the idea of paying homage to the past as well as embracing the new beginnings that uniting in love brings. Our shoot took place at Michler’s Greenhouse, a true gem in Lexington, Kentucky. This family run business has been operating since 1902 and has structures standing that are over 100 years old! With Michler’s incredible greenhouses as our backdrop, our vision of embracing history while looking to the future really came to fruition.

Gypsy rehearsal dinner party in Italy | Photo by Cinzia Bruschini  | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=81801

You caught the Italian wedding we featured here on 100lc yesterday, yes? It totally blew us away. Like we explained, these two had their wedding three days at their venue, Masseria Potenti. The rehearsal dinner had an amazing “Travellers and Troubadours” theme where not only did Olivia + Stefano play the part, but all the guests too. And as you’ll see below, it definitely warranted a post all of its own.

Thanks to Cinzia Bruschini for these swoon-worthy pics!

Eva of Chic Weddings in Italy tells us about planning a themed event for 200 guests:

We developed the theme called “vintage troubadours” considering that many of the guests were singers/musicians. We wanted to have a sort of gypsy feeling for the night where we had recreated a vintage caravan decoration at the entrance of the pool area in the alcove. We organized a mute show, with shadows, a man and a woman were representing a theatrical show about love and marriage and they dedicated this to Olivia and Stefano. The atmosphere here was very romantic, despite no one spoke for more than 20 minutes, all the eyes were caught by this delicate show. Guests then stayed by the pool area, in the grass, some played the piano, others played guitars, everyone felt happy and the night passed under a beautiful sky covered with stars.

The custom tambourines also went with their 50s beach themed party on day 3.

Olivia says, We tried to keep it laid back and bohemian, and our friends helped us to achieve this. Everyone reclined on Persian rugs or hay bales on the grass and we provided instruments for our musical guests to spontaneously play if they felt like! It really created magical pockets of groups of friends and family catching up!
