“It’s in His Kiss” Cafe Style Wedding Inspiration

Cafe Wedding Style
When Ashley Garret from Life in the Sunset sneaked this wedding shoot into our inbox, we knew it had our names written all over it! Ashley told us that she wanted to push the limits with some ideas she had for a Valentine’s Day wedding theme. What she ended up with was a gorgeous pink, white and silver modern theme we could easily see being used for an intimate cafe style wedding, engagement party, or rockin bridal shower. Based around the cute “It’s in His Kiss” message it’s jazzed up with fabulous hot pinks, pretty pastels and pops of metallics. You could even take it one step further and have the old hit “It’s in His Kiss” bopping along on your itunes, to really get everyone in the vibe. So there you have it my sweets … time to pucker up and have some heart-infused fun!

The inspiration from Ashley: I had coffee at Graffiti Cafe one afternoon and fell in love with this venue. I thought it would be such a cool place to get married or have a killer party. The floors are perfect for vinyl decals and I love the neon peace sign over the coffee bar. The cafe has a very modern feel but at night ends up being so romantic with it’s lit fireplace and candles.

Gypsy Boho Wedding Inspiration

As the days get warmer and the nights longer, I thought I’d keep it cool and relaxed, with this modern and pretty take on a bohemian wedding theme. This gypsy boho wedding inspiration board features chic and stylish details, vintage decor and, plenty of white gorgeous blooms. A diamente headpiece and a flowing gown ramp up the romance, whilst simple elements such as milk bottle vases, timber crates and hanging flowers keep the whole atmosphere organic and homemade. I think this beautiful outdoor setting would be oh-so pretty to recreate for a real wedding. What about you?

Vintage Glam Barn Wedding Inspiration

Ever since my initiation into the world of barn weddings I have become totally smitten with a gorgeous barn bash. It’s something about the country location, warm rustic features and oh-so-pretty and glamorous details, that gets me hook line and sinker!  And the same goes for this fabulous inspiration shoot sent over by Rachel McNamara Photography. With vintage glam style that includes a tea length wedding dress, patent red shoes and gorgeous diamante accessories. Elegant decor such as vintage glassware and candelabras, mixed with rustic touches, and a gorgeous couple (who by the way, are married!), you have the all the ideas you need to turn a country barn party into a stylish vintage inspired soiree!

From the photographer:  From the red shoes, to the red lips, 3/4 length dress with white gloves, to the rustic charm of the table and place settings, this styled shoot, held at the Oaks Vineyard in Clovis, California, was everything we hoped it would be. Amy Jaye of Posh and Posy Events designed the look of the shoot, with red and pink florals mixed with succulents, rose glass candle holders, and brass candleabras. The table settings featured mixed vintage glassware with burlap table runners and a rustic wood table made by the owners of 3 oaks vineyard themselves! Our models were a real life married couple, who’s chemistry was unmistakable.

Boho Chic Wedding Ideas

We fell in love with every bit of this boho chic inspiration shoot by Petula Pea Photography the instant we saw it.  The subtle and soft pretty pastel palette, the breezy outdoor setting and the eclectic mix of vintage mismatched decor are absolutely dreamy. The decadent petal style wedding cake, the country rustic touches and the beautiful boho headpieces really make a boho chic theme simply irresistible. But the stand-out detail for me, is the gorgeous bohemian style gown by D’Marie Couture – simply stunning! There are so many fab ideas in this shoot to take in, your wedding inspiration meter will be in hippie-pretty overdrive once you reach the end!

From the Event Co-ordinator: A boho chic bride is inspired by nature, loves spending time outdoors, enjoys the simple things in life, and has a free spirit admired by others. The boho chic bride steers away from the traditional style of wedding dress. Instead, she opts for a flowing, lightweight gown with a great neckline (like the halter style featured with a single fabric rose replacing flashy embellishments).

A beautiful headpiece is a must for the bohemian bride. You can add touch of sparkle to a floral headband for a modern twist; or for a more classic boho look, wearing a long flowery headpiece is perfect. {Just like the floral headpiece featured in this shoot. An original by Whichgoose, worn by photographer Patty, on her own wedding day in 2009}.

Rustic, vintage furniture pairs beautifully with boho chic style. The hand-built doorway is an original ceremony backdrop and signifies an opening to a new adventure. The weathered nightstand is a great contrast against the delicate rose petal cake, and the drawers and shelves filled with trinkets represent family heirlooms.

Mismatched chairs are a fun way to mix-up the guest tables and using vintage picture frames to display table numbers gives the tables a creative touch. We added layers of textures and colors to the table for dimension, along with patterned plates and mismatched glasses to compliment the outdoor canvas. Lastly, low floral arrangements of various heights were added to create a soft, romantic look without overdoing it.

From the photographer: This shoot was put together for a new cake company to feature in a Bridal show. It ended up being a fantastic experience. We used two models who are sisters and have been married for 6 years. Both of the girls got to put their own wedding dresses back on and feel like princesses for the day. Afterwards they told us ‘it was the most fun they had had in a long time.’  They were able to relive their wedding day all over again, only this time without the stress.They also loved how they got to enjoy the experience together. Because of this shoot, we have decided to start offering “group” Bridal sessions, not only for newlyweds, but also for those who have been married for quite some time.

Inspiration Board: Field of Dreams

Today I have an inspiration board ‘Field of Dreams’ which I put together when inspired by Emma Watson’s photo shoot in Harpers Bazaar. Sitting in an open field, glowing in etheral light and looking sophisticated and beautifully serene, she represented to me the epitome of a sophisticated country bride. Her wedding style is country chic: a mix elegant decor against a beautiful natural setting, pastel pink, mauve and purple blooms and linens with hints of shimmer, and of course a warm and relaxed vibe throughout the whole day.

Marie Antoinette Inspired Photoshoot by Christina Gressianu

Decadence and opulence are words which immediately come to mind when I think of Marie Antoinette. This teenage French Queen – famous for her beauty and expensive lifestyle – has today become a symbol of wanton extravagance inspiring artists from all over the world. Just like this fabulous team headed up by creative photographer Christina Gressianu. Filled to the brim with gold embellishments, Victorian styling and a gorgeous array of cakes, this Marie Antoinette photoshoot is the epitome of over-the-top beauty and definitely fit for a princess!

From Christina: Living in Colorado from New York City, I occasionally crave the opulence I frequently brushed up against there. While the nature here is magnificent, early this year I began having ideas about a girl surrounded by wealth, gold and frills. A girl who was completely unimpressed with the grandeur around her. And so I thought of Marie Antoinette. In the height of Versailles’ wealth, she preferred to play in the grass with her dogs. This series of photographs came from that vision in my mind, and from a desire to make the pictures I saw in my head real in the world. I feel deep gratitude for the amazing team who worked with me to bring the Marie in my mind out to Fort Collins! I am so fortunate these talented people were inspired by my ideas. They went above and beyond anything I could have expected. Thank you.
