Earthy wedding inspiration at The Wayfare Chapel | Photo by Brian Tropiano Photo | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=76635

Craving a to-die-for view and a few stunning details this morning? Sure ya are! And with a venue overlooking the peninsula in Palos Verdes, CA, you can’t beat a sweet scene like this. That’s why photographer Brian Tropiano + Two B Events vowed to compliment the setting, rather than try to complete it. The deets: For our Wayfarer’s Chapel shoot in beautiful Palos Verdes we wanted to create something simple yet elegant and whimsical that any bride could pull off.

The team used an existing bench as a sweetheart table to look over the cliffs and ocean below…. So romantic, right?

Ah, those last few moments before the ceremony. So much going on at once… which is exactly we love how the team behind today’s wedding ideas slowed everything down a bit, reminding us of the sweetness of it all. Julien of Mymoon dreamed up a shoot based on a bride’s final moments before I do. She takes a few deep breaths and checks her makeup, all while in the company of a myriad of lilacs and the loveliest dessert table, where she finds a love note in watercolor. So. Sweet.

Thanks to for the Pierre Atelier photos below…

Julien says, Lilacs always remind me of the paintings of Monet. That is why we chose to involve some elements reminiscent of a Parisian artist’s studio: tubes of paint, brushes, painting knives, a pallet, very sweet stationery inspired by watercolors.

Onyx and honey wedding ideas | Photo by Heather Cook Elliott Photography | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=76584

After seeing today’s inspiration shoot, we’re totally on the off-white dress train. With the striking style of those late 70s black onyx rings as their muse, Heather Cook Elliott Photography + Tailored Engagements whipped up a shoot that reimagines this season’s most unique bridal trends—from sequined tablescapes to floral wall hangings and a hippie-chic bridesmaid dress + big jewels.

Heather says, We wanted to style a shoot for the new vintage bride that loves the sheerness of lace but not lace itself, the shimmer of sequins but not bling exactly, the romance of a crown with out wearing a tiara, the detail of handmade items but not thrift stores, and her coffee with a little gold, or rather, honey.

Elegant, romantic calligraphy by Paper EnvyLooping calligraphy is carried through to the place cards that sit atop the hand-painted polka dot plates on gold chargers (that are just a tiny bit 80s) and all together they create a stack of layered loveliness. And layers are what this shoot is all about – like honey sweetened coffee layered with creamy milk and foam the details are all multi-faceted, a little surprising and always sweet.
