I am so excited to feature this Beautiful Tiffany Blue Vintage Wedding or as the cake designer says “a Little Bit of Vintage Spring Wedding” Emma from Truly Scrumptious Cakes designed this stunning Wedding cake that will make you never want to cut into this perfect work of art Showcasing this cake into a beautiful inspirational wedding you will get tons of ideas from.
Word from Emma: Although my first wedding cake for 2015 isn’t until the end of February, there’s nothing wrong with forward planning. Many of my brides have already designed their cakes and the vintage trend that was such a heavy influence last year is very much still present. So for my first blog I thought I’d share one of my favorite weddings from 2014…Sarah & Darrell Wilson’s wedding was 30th May 2014 at the stunning Corick House nestled in the countryside of County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. Such an organized bride with a true vision of combining the fresh tones of late spring and early summer with a hint of classic vintage.
I adore this Sweet Down Home Farm Party from Yolanda of Kiss With Style formerly Kiss me Kate of Australia. Their themed children parties are always so fun and stylish. So you know I was just so thrilled when they passed me their photos for this adorable themed birthday party with all it’s girlie goodness. In Collaboration with Anders Ruff having them design the sweetest printables to coordinate with this party.
Check out my favorites, like the barnyard cake, the cupcakes, the shabby chic banner, the windmill Centerpiece and the macaroons decorated to look like farm animals. The tiered cake made to look like a barn with an adorable fondant chicken on the top is to die for, Oh and do not forget those farm animal shaped cake pops, they are the most creative ever!
I love this Coastal Family farm wedding, it is so Relaxed and woodsy with so many elements a little bit of beach, a little bit of woodland, a little bit of rustic, a lot of farm and a lot of family and so much FUN! All the homemade foods and handmade decor and favors, including their gorgeous wedding invites that the bride designed herself make this a truly inspirational wedding.
Words From the bride, Emily: Our wedding was a cross between a garden party and a Kentucky Derby soiree with lots of handmade touches, a vintage twist and a rustic farm feel. We wanted to infuse the festivities with a sense of romance and whimsy, while creating a glow of warmth and intimacy for our guests to let loose and dance the night away.
What an absolutely precious Baby shower, this Pink Rocking Horse Baby Shower is by the Talented Yolanda Cerra of Kiss with Style. I am totally inspired by the cute pacifier cupcake toppers and the baby rattle cake pops. I think the giant rocking horse table decor is so beautiful and I love the cute backdrop with pom poms and a safety pin. This baby shower party has so many cute elements that would be perfect in blue for a boy as well.
My Favorite parts of this party and I hope my pregnant daughter is also inspired by are the adorable Mini Baby Russian Cakes, the Pacifier Cupcake Toppers, the ABC Blocks, the cake pops that are featured in both baby rattles and baby foot prints and diaper pins on them. The mother to be in this classy baby shower had to be so happy with every aspect of this party, with all the unique one of a kind elements it was definitely a day that will never be forgotten.
Who doesn’t have fond memories of the wizard of oz and all the wonderful mystical characters? The ruby red slippers, the wicked witch, Dorothy, Oz and the Good witch? Don’t forget the amazing Lion, Scarefrow and tin man. Wizard of oz would not be a hit without them. So all of you Fans, Hold onto your seats, because Wizard of Oz Wedding will melt your heart and blow you away. This beautiful shoot is by the talented Sarah Kathleen with styling by Ever After Artistry.
Words from the photographer, Sarah Kathleen: When you hear “Wizard of Oz”, what do you immediately think of? Munchkins, yellow brick roads, rainbows, ruby slippers, and a cute little dog…. right? Well, I wanted to go the complete opposite direction and draw inspiration from the dark side of Oz — flying monkeys, wicked witches, tornadoes, storm cellars, and poisonous flowers. So I teamed up with some of the area’s most brilliant creatives to bring this twisted Oz to life. We decided on a color palette of emerald, black, and white — with very few colorful nods to the brighter side of Oz (mostly through the floral design and the rainbow streamer ceremony backdrop). Seeing my dark and twisty vision come to life in a way that was still applicable to parties and weddings was surreal. We had so much fun playing dress up and throwing rainbow sprinkles, I want to do it all over again
Australia, a Place well known for it’s beaches and having stunning weddings, this is a beautiful showcase Bohemian Byron Bay Wedding shoot from Ryder Evans. Feather hair accessories, antlers, and a beach ceremony make this photo session one for the bride on the look out for Inspiration.
Words from Event Planner: Byron Bay is synonymous with an addictive bohemian edge that people have tried to replicate the world over. This slither of coastline at the tip of New South Wales is as luxurious as it is casual. It is this juxtaposition that keeps Byron Bay long in our souls, so it was only right that we created our styled wedding concept on the shores of beautiful Byron Bay.
I truly adore this Nature Industrial Wedding Inspirational shoot focusing on the romantic side of autumn, with decayed walls and beautiful textiles. Jenna Trapasso Thomas of Red, White & Green Photography and McKinna Hahn of House of Ceremony showcase this vision using the sixth floor of Piedmont Renaissance Center for the ideal spot for this shoot.
words from Ashley: My main inspiration point was textiles, with some metallic and deep amethyst thrown in. I love the pizazz that gold brings, but I wanted to focus more on gold’s warmer sister, copper, to give things a fresher look. I knew I wanted the tablescape to be full of natural elements, so I used greenery with some lesser-used flowers and petite pumpkins to create the base. Most challenging was the ceremony backdrop, which took quite a few late nights watching The Cosby Show, gluing down rolled yarn, and making dip-dyed tassels. In the end, it turned out to be my favorite piece.
Living on the border of 4 different apple orchards it is so obvious the beauty found on these farms, so you could say this styled shoot from Sarah Park and Nessa K Photography is the inspiration for many weddings to come. The theme was perfect, down to the apple tucked into the bouquet beautifully styled by Petal and Print. I already know a bride that will eat this one up, in every way possible!
Words from the event stylist, Sarah of Sarah Park Events: For this shoot we were inspired by one of the most popular activities Fall has to offer, “Apple Picking.” We wanted to incorporate apples into the shoot as much as we could, so we found the most beautiful backdrop at Baugher’s Orchard and made magic happen. From the centerpiece to the escort card station, apples were everywhere! My favorite part of the shoot has to be the “Bobbing Station,” we took a simple idea and made it into a unique escort card station that guests will remember for years! I could have not asked for a better team to work with on this fall inspired shoot and we hope we have inspired many Fall brides.
I am so in love with this precious Baby Blue Showers from Above Baby shower by the Talented Justine of Pretty Little Vintage. A few of the things I love about this sweet rain themed boy baby shower are The dessert table set up on a baby crib, the baby rattle cake pops, the polka dot raindrop garland and the blue ombre cake with the pom pom banner cake topper. and the adorable onsie and umbrella cookies.
Words from Justine: “I’ve always had to work with lots of pinks and girly themes so I was very excited to put this baby boy shower together for a dear friend of mine Jennifer! This ‘showered from above’ themed party featured a dreamy baby cot dessert buffet with pom pom clouds and raindrops dropping from above. As all babies are a blessing from above we wanted this shower to reflect how special this time really is for the mom to be.
With the Cold right outside the door, I try and think of inspirational winter themed Wedding and when I saw this Plum winter wedding I fell in love! This Beautifully styled shoot from Casey Hendrickson Photography and Chelish Moore Flowers is one to inspire any Bride planning a fall or Winter Wedding. This shoot has a bit of everything, from lush plum florals to warm winter drinks to a one of a kind inspirational wedding cake decorated with the poetry of ee cummings. It is a perfect woodland scene with just enough bright colors to keep things feminine and yet Classic.
Words From the photographer, Casey Hendrickson: With winter starting, I wanted to capture a love filled with beautiful natural and warming details. The colors I chose were gold, plum, with pinks added in. We used classic vintage china with these colors along with plum napkins folded in. I topped the table with a lamb skin along with antlers as well as gold painted pinecones for a natural approach as well as natural wood table and antique chairs.
