August 20, 2014 | Junebug Weddings

1. Earthy Elegance

Earthy elegance merges the hues of the natural world with just the right dose of ornate. Ferns, grasses, and other lush greens alongside deep reds, golden hues, and hard woods create modest, humble beauty. We are loving the simplicity behind Dorothy and Mac’s reception tables photographed by  Bradford Martens (featured below).

2. Simple Sophistication

Fresh and oh-so-chic, simple sophistication is the embodiment of  “less is more”. Perfect for a timeless wedding, clean lines and brilliant whites allow the beauty of floral centerpieces and elegant candlesticks to shine. The tablescape below from Alix and Matt’s wedding is so refreshing and was captured by Marianne Taylor Photography.

3. Vintage Romance

With intricate lace, soft pastels, and old-fashioned details, vintage romance combines beauty with charm. Small antiques and family heirlooms offer sentiment and style. We love how Evita and Alex utilized books into their destination wedding table decor, as seen in the photograph below by  Elizabeth Lloyd. What’s a better way to personalize your own love story than to incorporate details that are meaningful to you?


4. Modern Luxe

With dramatic dark tones, geometric shapes, and metallic accents, modern luxe offers an industrial, yet romantic appeal. The bold black and white stripes of Meghan and Aaron’s wedding, as seen in the photo below by APictureLife Photography, in contrast with the shining gold centerpieces result in a stylish success.

5. Feminine Grandeur

Feminine grandeur is a celebration of all things delicate and sparkling with sequins tablecloths, tulle, crystals, and more. The blush tones and beautiful flowers of Saba and Ali’s wedding  tablescape in the photo below by Jinda Photography  are reminiscent of royalty.

  1. Soo in love with the black, white and gold. Add a sequin belly band to the napkins….”POP”

  2. This is such a great mood board! I think these concepts should also apply to the rings. It’s that kind of encompassing attention to detail that sets apart great weddings from merely good ones.

  3. All of those are very awesome .
