30 Unboring Floral Crowns for Stylish Brides

February 21, 2017 | nicole

Floral crowns have been at the forefront of bridal style for the last several years, giving brides a feminine, natural, and even ethereal style on their wedding day. Since the trend isn’t going away anytime soon, we wanted to share four ways to achieve an unboring look that sets you apart from the crown-wearing crowd. Get inspired by these 30 unique floral crowns for your upcoming wedding!

Partial Crown

A partial floral crown provides a more delicate look. Similar to a tiara, the partial crown is created with a single bloom or cluster of flowers at one point on the hairpiece, leaving the remainder of the crown empty.

Bottom Heavy

While most floral crowns carry their weight at the top or slightly to one side, centering the volume of your crown at the bottom makes for a unique shape and an added touch of romance. Bonus tip: wear the crown beneath your up-do, around the base of your head, instead of on top!

Greenery

When it comes to unexpected floral crowns, opting to play up the greenery is one of our favorite styling tricks! Leaves come in as many different shapes as flowers do, so mixing and matching various greenery can provide visual interest in your crown.

Colorful Oregon Elopement at a Haunted Bed and Breakfast

February 21, 2017 | gabby

Kristin and Sterling always knew they wanted to be married surrounded by the Pacific Northwest’s romantic gray skies and naturally adventurous spirit. Heceta Head Lighthouse, known for casting the brightest light on the Oregon coast, provided Kristin and Sterling’s Oregon elopement with gorgeous architecture and a spellbinding view of crashing waves. It’s also said to be haunted by a ghost, which totally adds to its cool, mysterious vibes! Katy Weaver Photography may not have captured the historic venue’s ghost on camera, but we can’t get enough of how she documented Kristin and Sterling’s incredible post-ceremony hike through the Oregon forest.

The Couple:

Kristin and Sterling

The Wedding:

Heceta Head Lighthouse, Yachats, Oregon

We knew we wanted to get married on the Oregon coast, there’s something about the grey skies and rocky cliffs that makes it so romantic. Heceta Head Lighthouse seemed perfect and we loved the fact that it is haunted, it added mystery and intrigue, and was beautiful. We didn’t see the ghost however!

The most memorable part of the day was waking up that morning in the bed and breakfast, watching the waves crash outside our window, and knowing our lives together were just beginning.

I first found my dress and built the vibe around that, the top resembled mermaid scales and reminded me of the ocean. We ended up going with a sort of boho woodland mermaid vibe, because it went well with our personalities and what we liked.

Our advice: Don’t be afraid of doing things differently and plan for the unexpected. Splurge on things you think are worth it but don’t feel you need to spend a lot of money. We didn’t spend very much on our outfits but the venue and the photographer were important so we focused on those areas.

The Wedding Team:

Photography – Katy Weaver Photography
Venue – Heceta Head Lighthouse
Floral Design – Passionflower
Cake – Sweet Life Patisserie
Officiant – Mary Cook
Makeup & Hair Artist – Blossom & Beauty
Wedding Dress – Needle & Thread via BHLDN
Groom’s Apparel – Este’s Men’s Clothing
Rings – Gem Set Love

 

Congratulations to Kristin and Sterling, and a huge thanks to Katy Weaver Photography for sharing their elopement with us. Can’t get enough of this elopement’s cool Pacific Northwest vibes? Then this Oregon proposal in the clouds will blow your mind!
