You don’t have to convince us that a shoot centered on floral wedding ideas is bound to be a good one – we’re into floral anything around here. But give us lush, romantic bouquets, then mix in a few indulgent desserts, and you have our hearts forever. In this fall floral editorial shot by Tori Watson of Marvelous Things Photography, the deep berry tones of the flowers channeled a sophisticated autumn vibe that we just can’t get out of our heads. Janie of JM Flora Design tells it, When we all came to the table with our ideas for a fall floral shoot, the end result was rich tones, decadent treats and an extra touch of elegance.

Recipe for flawless fall florals: Dahlias, black scabiosa, chocolate Queen Anne’s lace for their deep harvest purples, ranunculus and roses for a bright dose of autumnal hues…

Janie says, The draped tablescape mirrored our bride’s classic wrap dress, setting the stage for a romantic dinner straight out of a renaissance still life. A hair wreath featuring dahlia and coleus finished off her exquisite and timeless look.

Coastal Maine Wedding | Photo by Jen Huang | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=78140

If you love history, nature, and those New England summer vibes, you’ll totally fall in love with this venue. Mike and Kate wanted to tie the knot somewhere that encompassed all the things they loved, and found that in Wells Reserve at Laudholm – a space rarely used as a venue. Kate says, We wanted something truly special and unique for us, and given our love of the ocean, farming, and conservation, Laudholm Farm (historic farm turned estuarine research reserve on the coast of Maine) was more than perfect; it was a dreamland. 

A big shout out to Jen Huang for the photos below.

It was super important to K + M that their guests felt comfortable, even amidst a hot July in Maine – so they told them to wear what they wanted and provided drinks and lawn sports, while the farm gave everyone space to spread out in a laidback environment. Kate says relaxed is the way to go… She even went surfing the morning of. Love this attitude!

They went local whenever possible – with delectable eats from Dandelion Catering + flowers from Marianmade Farm. Not to mention that both their Day of Coordinator and DJ were also in the wedding party!

We really both can’t say enough about how wonderful, helpful, and talented our family and friends. The first hurricane of the season, Arthur, hit the east coast on July 4th. Our amazing bridesmaids had been asked to set up decorations and they ended up struggling through seriously strong wind all morning. Chairs were falling over and plates were literally flying off tables. Despite this, they did a beautiful job. The wind died down by the ceremony and we had perfect weather plus – fireworks that had been postponed the day before!  

Cheers, Mike and Kate!

Outdoor entertaining ideas by Eye Swoon | Photo by Photographed by Winnie Au | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=78106

You may already know this from the above photo, but after seeing this spread, you’ll so want to cancel your weekend plans and recreate this late summer scene in your own backyard (oh, how we wish all backyards looked like this!) instead. Athena Calderone, designer + blogger at Eye Swoon, hosted this bohemian backyard soiree at her Amagansett home and it kinda illustrates everything we’re hanging onto about summer: expertly planned yet casual hangouts, warm summer nights with friends (poolside, of course), and a major emphasis on food. We’re just happy Winnie Au caught it all on camera for us to swoon over too!

Chef Jeff Schwarz (see his column for T Magazine) brought Athena’s menu dreams to life with seasonal veggies, herbs, surf and turf kebabs, and some drool-worthy sweets, like Cointreau-glazed peaches and ice cream.

Athena partnered with Cointreau on the party, and paid homage to the liqueur brand with sophisticated but rustic details like the vintage bottles that ran the length of this gooorgeous custom table.
