Glam Black and Gold Wedding in Monterey California

When I announce a wedding to be up there with my favourites, it’s a pretty big deal, considering I fall head-over-heels for at least 10 weddings a week. But I’m going to be up straight. This glam wedding by Studio 13 Designs is a bona fide favorite. No surprises there, when you have Italian glamour, black and gold details and a location that is one of my favourite places in the US of A… the picturesque seaside locale of Carmel, Monterey. Sigh. Sigh. Double sigh.

Wedding Highlights:

Brittany and Antonio were married on a stunning day in Carmel and their day was a beautiful, family filled celebration with gorgeous handmade details all around. Their wedding was filled with Italian glam–with a gold and black theme and glittery details everywhere! There were so many special and personal touches—both veils were made by the bride’s aunt, and all of the flowers were designed and executed by the her mother. Authentic Italian cookies were provided by the groom’s sister (which were to die for!) and the favors and the “love” marquee were hand made by bride. I was blown away by the time and love that was poured into their wedding day as they finally joined together as husband and wife surrounded by so much support.

Vintage Style Love Shoot by Jessie Felix Photography

This cute couple went for something totally different and re-enacted a 1950s scene for their vintage style love shoot. Infusing old-fashioned values, retro country decor and total adoration for each other, they bring to life an era that once was (complete with single beds!) And we totally LOVE that! Jessie Felix snapped up all the fun and we are so thankful she did!

English Literature Inspired New York Wedding by GT Modern Creations

The inspiration for Lindsay & Tom’s wedding theme came from a mutual interest in English literature. They incorporated books into their centerpieces and used a library card catalog for their escort cards. The whole day was filled with smiles, love and lots of dancing – making this New York wedding totally enchanting. Take a moment to enjoy their beautiful highlight video by GT Modern Creations which puts you in the front row to witness their amazing day.

From the cinematographers: We met with Lindsay and her bridal party on the morning of the wedding at Peter Frank Salon, and before her hair and makeup had even started, she was radiant! Her friends and family recounted cute stories of her and Tom as they watched her get her makeup done, and tears filled their eyes when her veil finally went on…the day had finally arrived, two families would become one.

Once we got back to her house, Lindsay put on her gorgeous Jim Hjelm gown with the help of her mother, and her dad watched nearby in awe of how beautiful his little girl was. Hand in hand, she held on to her dad as she walked down the aisle and into the arms of Tom…her best friend and love of her life. Once she and Tom were finally together, there was nothing but smiles, joy, happiness, and love. There’s just something about these two, almost as if they have already been together for a lifetime. They spent the entire night dancing, holding hands, exchanging glances, laughing and sharing sweet kisses.

Mad Men Wedding Theme

I’m a huge fan of the Mad Men series – the cool 1950s era, the stylish fashion, and the intriguing characters…absolutely every bit of it! So, if there was a theme I would be jumping over the moon to see, it would be a Mad Men wedding theme. This gorgeous 1950s inspired shoot designed by Laura Lorraine Designs and shot by Randi Marie Photography, is full of Mad Men glam with a little modern twist and is shimmering with so much elegance, I’m sure all vintage brides out there will do a major double take. With a gorgeous tea-length lace dress, seriously pretty shoes, gorgeous jewellery and a mint green vintage suitcase I just gotta have, it’s a romantic dose of inspiration this MM fan is loving to bits.

Inspiration from the Designer: We set out to produce a one of a kind styled photo shoot to mirror the 1950’s (a timeless era), along with a Mad Men-esque modern theme. We hand selected the linens from La Tavola and these were the starting point of inspiration for the entire shoot. The color palette in the linens also complimented the elegance and ambience of the NOOR’s Ella ballroom perfectly. For the ‘Mad Men meets Modern’ theme, we chose dresses, provided by Alina Pizzano Couture Bridal to reflect the era and create a modern twist. Beautiful floral arrangements by Savvy Flowers added a pop of class to our tablescape. Sandra Nicole Designs, Crush Jewelry and Disco Toes added that little bling and the “wow factor” to tie together our model’s looks for the shoot’s integrity. Randi with Randi Marie Photography worked her magic to create a subtle yet beautiful collection of photos alongside SEP Lighting & Entertainment, which added to the beauty and essence of the Ella. Melinda with Cake Goodness, topped off the design with her beautiful, sweet creations and custom backdrop. All of this allowed for and complimented the design thought up and heavily fostered by Laura with Laura Lorraine Design.

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.

From the photographer: Vintage Chic was the look we were going for with this stylized shoot. Bringing a modern shabby chic twist with vintage elements. We wanted to show that it’s possible to have vintage elements without going heavy on vintage and keeping it bright, fresh and beautiful. The flowers were bold and along the lines of a citrus color palette. We wanted to use flowers you wouldn’t expect – Golden Yarrow, Pincushion Protea, Kangaroo Paws, Snap Dragons and King Protea… just to name a few.

We added in small vintage book page elements as an accent. Book page flowers were also in the flower arrangements, bouquet, boutonniere, and the bride’s ring. The alter was made of long strips of fabric and lace strung between two hoopa poles. Several amazing vendors collaborated to make this shoot a success:
