Soft, feminine and completely dreamy, bride Stephanie’s bridal style exudes a loveliness beyond words. Shades of pink and creamy white provide the perfect palette for a spring wedding – and the floral crown and bouquet by Deitra Butler of Lush Couture Floral tie everything together flawlessly. Get ready to swoon over these exquisite photos from Taylor Lord Photography!

The Couple: Stephanie and Ajay

The Wedding: 6.29.2013 – Park Cities Baptist Church, Dallas, Texas

The Vision: I always wanted an intimate garden wedding, but when I fell in love with my Indian husband, I quickly learned a wedding that small would never be an option! I had to find a balance between my west coast earthy/hippie desires and his extravagant culture and love of glamour. I took inspiration from the Crillon Ball in Paris, Jane Austen stories, Grace Kelly, and a little mix between Kate Middleton and Kate Moss’s weddings. I wanted a lovely, peaceful, romantic atmosphere.

The Style: I have never seen another flower crown paired with an updo, and I think that is what makes it an interesting take on the trend. I took inspiration from Kate Moss’s wedding flowers, Lana Del Rey, and of course Pinterest. I put my trust in my florist that she would make something magical, dreamy and light that could also go along with the glamorous aspects of the wedding.

The most important aspects of my bridal style were fit, comfort, and timeless grace. I didn’t want a look that would overwhelm me, or draw attention from my natural bridal beauty. I chose a natural waistline to enhance my hourglass figure and the full skirt for ease of movement… and who doesn’t love a floaty fabric that blows in the breeze? My mother and I are tall women, so since she wore ballet shoes on her wedding day, I wore my own version – sheer Zara ballet flats that had subtle sparkle and make me think of glass slippers.

The Dress: Before shopping I did lots of research to narrow down the look I wanted. When the time came to find a dress, I flew home to Portland for Christmas and used that opportunity to shop with my mother and sisters. We went to a lovely boutique called Charlotte’s Weddings & More and found the dress quite quickly. I knew I loved a Reem Acra dress from several seasons ago, but couldn’t find anything like it, so I found a similar gown by Justin Alexander and had a tailor add silk chiffon sleeves.

The Accessories: I found my wedding jewelry in a Bloomingdale’s in Los Angeles with one of my bridesmaids, I didn’t want the jewelry to stand out, only to add a bit of polish. The earrings were lightweight and flattering with an updo, the tiny bracelet was true to my personal style of dainty jewelry. I bought them quite quickly and easily with the advice of my trusted friend! On the wedding day, for my “something old” and “something borrowed” my sister Kaitlynn offered me a little silver ring of hers, and my “something blue” was a handkerchief of my mother’s, tucked into my bouquet.

The Advice: Be brave enough to stay true to yourself, choose a cut and fabric that flatters your figure, and feel free to adjust your dress if you can’t swing a designer gown!

Botanical Wedding Inspiration Photo Shoot at the Philadelphia Horticultural Center from Juniper & Dash

Brought to us by Sarah Kudlack of Juniper & Dash, this gorgeous styled wedding inspiration photo shoot took place at the Philadelphia Horticultural Center where Lindsay Docherty Photography captured the beautiful organic details and design. There is so much to love about this shoot, but I have to say I absolutely adore the bride’s stunning wedding dress by Anna Campbell!

Here are a few words from Sarah Kudlack of Juniper & Dash on the inspiration for this lovely photo shoot…

The Inspiration: It has been a long winter here in the Northeast and we’ve all been starving for signs of spring. We knew we wanted color in this shoot! We proposed a color palette of navy, sage, mustard with pops of fuchsia to our awesome vendors and let their creativity fly!

The Details: The stunning floral arrangements and chuppah were crafted by the lovely Kate Farley. We discussed texture, texture, texture and she more than delivered with all the lovely eucalyptus, silver brunia, ivy, and dusty miller. The Horticultural Center was the perfect space for the shoot because of all the vibrant foliage thriving in the gorgeous Philadelphia greenhouse. We created a nontraditional head table: an L-shape with farm tables. It’s a great way for the bridal party to have a better view of one another while still looking out on the reception area. Jessa with Squeeze My Hand Letterpress collaborated with Kate (who created beauty with flowers AND hand-lettering) and they brought to life the wonderful stationery suite. Kate also created those amazing place mats! Samirah with Suga put together a delicious milk and cookie bar along with a fabulous gilded cake. The butterscotch ones were a particular favorite. Sugar Philly provided the French blue macarons – such a unique color that you don’t typically see in macrons; they were equally as yummy!

The Look: The bride wore a stunning Anna Campbell dress, completely handmade in Australia. The back of this dress was so intricately detailed, it was truly amazing to see. Anna Campbell recently started bringing her collection to the US and we couldn’t be more thrilled to see more of her lovelies on local brides! The bride was adorned with Bario Neal’s 14k rose gold aquamarine halo engagement ring that I had to simply try on myself, and let me just tell you it was fabulous! Her band was a dainty rose gold fishtail wedding ring with a diamond inset to pair with our groom’s more rugged and textured rose gold band. If you look closely you’ll see something blue with sapphire slice earrings.

Elegant Winter Wedding in Florida with Photos by Dana Goodson Photography – Jordann and Adam

The picture of sophisticated elegance, Jordann married her sweetheart Adam surrounded by family and friends in Gainesville, Florida on New Year’s Eve.

The Goals: As a couple, the main priority was the wedding date. This was very important to us. It was the anniversary of when we started dating and not only that, but also a symbol of starting anew. It wasn’t the easiest thing, planning a wedding on a Tuesday that was also a holiday, but we stuck to our guns on that one. We loved the idea of having a sweet Black Tie New Year’s Eve party (that also happens to be our wedding) with our closest friends and family.

The Design: We wanted an intimate, natural setting with some personality. We had mostly cocktail tables to encourage movement throughout the late night. The venue was like a nighttime secret garden with plenty of twinkly lights. The vintage style carried over into our seating area with its loveseat and wingback chairs, the low centerpieces with their dusty, romantic hues, and the champagne and lace linens. All the while we kept black as a constant accent to reiterate the Black Tie theme. Cake and desserts were from our favorite bakeries in my hometown, Ocala, Florida.

The Look: Above all, I wanted to feel confident and comfortable. I wore blue velvet shoes, following the tradition of blue wedding shoes from my mother and sister. To be honest, my dress was the inspiration for the entire wedding. I built everything around it. The lace, the asymmetry, the not-quite-white color, the glitzy belt, the fact that it made me feel beautiful – all things that made it the perfect thing for me to wear as I married my honey. My makeup artist, Kendra Chaney did a smokey eye on me with defined brows, as I had a birdcage veil covering my face during the ceremony. My hair was pretty simple with some fingerwaves, allowing the veil to take center stage. The whole look was very coquettish, as was my intention. I wanted my bridesmaids to be individually beautiful with a fabulous lacey dress that suited their personality and style. They each had some kind of braid incorporated into their hairstyle.

The Moments: The “first look” we did with our photographer Dana Goodson was so special. Dana found a little park behind our venue and my sister, also my Maid of Honor, walked me to Adam, standing with his back to me. That allowed us to have a genuine, private moment that was just about us and our love before the whirlwind that was to ensue. I was calm and focused by the time the ceremony rolled around. Another fun moment was when I couldn’t get Adam’s ring on during the ceremony and really had to jam it on there. We got a laugh out of it and the light-heartedness I think Adam was looking for in our ceremony. His ring was a whole size too small.. oops. The best moment, though, was turning to face our guests after being pronounced husband and wife. Biggest. Smiles. Ever.

The Advice: Crystal, our wedding planner from Style & Grace Events, was invaluable the day of the wedding. I would have been worrying all day had I not been able to rely on her and her assistant. Even if you only hire a planner to coordinate the day-of, make the investment. It will take a lot off your shoulders. My advice is not to lose sight of your and your spouse-to-be’s vision for the special day. Everyone has an opinion of what you should do but it’s your wedding and you can do anything you want.
