From the photographer:

Stephanie and Randy’s beautiful brunch wedding couldn’t have been any more perfect! From her gorgeous flowers, to custom designed Barbara Bates dress I know it was exactly as Stephanie had described all those months ago on our very first phone call. We spoke for over an hour that day, having never shared 2 words before that point and just connected on what she wanted her wedding to be about. Her love for her wonderful partner Randy and each family and friend who joined them to celebrate. True love can really be found at any age, and it is so very clear that Stephanie and Randy have now found theirs.

Winter Country Wedding at Emu Bottom Homestead

I absolutely adore a rustic barn wedding, so it’s no surprise that I am totally smitten with this darling duo and their winter country wedding at Emu Bottom Homestead in Victoria. With all the touches you’d expect from a stylish country affair – DIY details, open fireplaces, a gorgeous warm toned palette and even a few cute Scotsmen to boot – it certainly does not disappoint. Sorrento Wedding Photography captured all the magic and the beautiful Australian countryside which made for the perfect backdrop.  This is, my friends, what you call a special Sunday treat.

From The Bride Anjeleen:

We wanted to keep our wedding simple, relaxed and intimate. Just 88 of our close Family and friends and just a maid of honour and best man. We tried to do as much DIY as we could to give it a personal touch..from homemade invites, to making my own shawls, to decorating and labelling our wedding favours. We would say our wedding theme was winter country wedding.

From Photographer Shannon:

We shared a wonderful day with Anjeleen and Scott at their Emu Bottom homestead winter wedding. It was a crisp Melbourne day when we met Scott at his family home but that didn’t stop Scott and Groomsmen Emilio keeping the laughs flowing! We then headed to Anjeleen’s as her makeup was finishing up. After a few pictures of Angeleen with her parents and bridesmaids we were off to to Emu Bottom. With the fireplaces going and some amazing flowers it was a perfect location for the couples winter wedding ceremony. With not too much sunlight before the reception we headed across to a lovely train bridge for a walk around and a chance to take the wedding cars for a spin too! The reception was fantastic with the couple using Emu Bottoms old barn for their reception with open fireplaces and an amazing roast prepared by the chefs over the flames.

Wedding Reception Bald Head Island 

 

From the photographer:

Michelle and Preston were wed at the Village Chapel of Bald Head Island and held their reception at Shoal’s Club, Bald Head Island NC. It’s a destination off the coast of Southport, NC a sleepy town at the mouth of The Cape Fear River.
You must take a boat to get to the island and there are no cars, only golf carts for transportation. It’s off the beaten path and provides folks with a comforting sense of ‘leaving it all behind’. Michelle’s family owns a home on the island, and it was her number one choice in places for she and Preston to host their guests for their lovely fall wedding on the island. It was a wonderful celebration to be a part of. 

 

Casual Fall Fete by Jeremy & Kristin

Fall is quickly becoming one of my favorite seasons…. golden hues, rich coloured blooms, cool crisp air – what’s not to love? Combine that with a relaxed casual vibe and a hint of vintage and industrial style, like this wedding by Jeremy & Kristin, and then you really have my attention. But if you also happen to throw in a stunning Vera Wang gown, a hip industrial venue and the natural beauty of the great outdoors – well, I’m in serious danger of catching bad wedding envy!  Take your time to enjoy this one lovelies and cherish all the poised pretty!

 Beautiful bride Sarah shares the details:

1. What was the vision & theme for your wedding?

I wanted to keep things simple and casual. I also wanted to incorporate the season because I love Fall. It helped me pick the colors and decor.

2. What was the size of your wedding?

Average. We had around 90 people at the ceremony and reception.

3. Tell us about the details

Venue

We chose an art gallery in Fort Worth called Artspace111 because we loved the outdoor space. It had everything we were looking for- a place for an outdoor ceremony and a separate space for the reception. It was the perfect mix of eclectic, industrial, and vintage. We had to move the reception inside because of weather worries but it still turned out beautifully because of the artwork on the walls.

Color Palette

Our colors were brown, orange and a light robin’s egg blue.

Decorations & Flowers

The ceremony decor was very minimal. Our wedding was held in one of the sculpture gardens at the gallery so I didn’t want to interfere with the natural setting. We hung fall themed wreaths on the doors into the ceremony space and placed DIY floral arrangements on either side of the bride and groom. We had some DIY signs painted with “dinner” and “dancing” with arrows pointing the way into the reception space.

The table centerpieces were made my bridesmaids and myself. We used a collection of bottles in different shapes and sizes and painted them on the inside with different shades of robins egg blue. Then, we filled them with wheat stalks in them instead of flowers.

Wedding Cake

Our cake was 3 tiers with 2 tiers of lemon cake and 1 tier of spice cake with a white buttercream frosting. The frosting was done as all white rosettes except for 3 orange rosettes- 1 on each tier. Texture was more important to me than color but Robert didn’t want an all white cake so he came up with the idea to do the 3 orange rosettes.

Favors

I wanted to incorporate Robert’s heritage in some way so we decided on Mexican hot chocolate favors. They also struck me as very fall appropriate wedding favors. It’s a hot chocolate mix that has ancho chile powder and cinnamon added to it. I bought small jars and one of my bridesmaids made the mix and put the jars together. I bought Kraft paper tags and some twine from the store, hand wrote the recipe on the back, stamped “gracias!” on the front, and assembled them a few days before the wedding.

4. Tell us about your Wedding style

Wedding Gown & Accessories

I found my perfect dress at David’s Bridal. It was all lace with some draping on the top that gave it a nice texture. The salesgirl was spot on to recommend a belt with the dress. It gave it a nice vintage feel. I didn’t want to wear white so my dress was ivory instead. Again, I wanted to keep it simple and most importantly, not poofy. I wore ivory Toms that were an engagement gift from a friend. I love the concept behind Toms (get one, give one to an in need child) and also couldn’t deny the comfort factor. I wore my mother’s pearl necklace (my borrowed), some earrings I already had (my old), and a sapphire and diamond ring my dad gave me as we were all getting ready that day (my new and blue).

Bouquets

The bouquets were orange gerber daisies (my favorite flower!) and sunflowers, with some cream colored roses mixed in. I loved how bright and happy they looked! The bridesmaid bouquets were wrapped in brown ribbon and the bridal bouquet in ivory ribbon.

Bridesmaids

The bridesmaids wore robin egg blue dresses from Alfred Sung. They each chose a style to fit them and their personality. I wanted each girl to be comfortable in what they wore. I also liked the eclectic look it provided. 

Groomsmen Attire

Robert wore a dark gray suit, an ivory dress shirt and an orange tie. His boutonnière was the same rose that was part of my bouquet with some coffee berry in there also. The groomsmen wore matching gray suits with either a blue or orange tie. Their boutonnières were made of mini sunflowers.

5. Did you include any DIY or personalized details?

A lot of the small details were do-it-yourself. I bought a basic guest book and added details to make it my own style. Other DIY details included the favors, reception centerpieces, a wedding wish tree I made, and some hand painted signs to direct guests from the ceremony to the reception. I loved being able to look around and think to myself “I love that because I made it.”

6. Was there anything that made your wedding unique?

I like to think my venue was a little unique and the overall feel to the wedding was a lot less formal than weddings I’ve been to. I had a lot of guests tell me later that they had a great time because of how relaxed everything was.

6. What did you find challenging?

Making decisions! I’m usually a fairly decisive Type A person but there were several moments throughout the planning process that I couldn’t make a decision to save my life! Another struggle was trying to balance wedding planning with my regular life – I ended up getting a little behind on other things because I was so focused on wedding planning.

7. What were your favorite moments?

My dad surprised me and the bridesmaids while we were getting ready at the gallery with a bottle of champagne and a beautiful ring he gave me. I also loved the moment right before I walked down the aisle because I was so excited to see Robert! Robert’s favorite moment was seeing my Dad walk me down the aisle. I’m usually not good at keeping secrets but I managed to not tell him anything about how I would look that day.

8. Any advice to Bride’s & Groom’s planning now?

Try to not sweat the small stuff. At first, I was really upset about having the reception inside the gallery instead of outside like we had originally planned. However, everything still turned out beautifully. We still got married, and everyone still had fun.

Also, do things little by little and don’t let it pile up. The more I procrastinated, the more stressed I felt. One last thing- find vendors that you love because it makes the wedding day much less stressful if you have full confidence that they will execute your vision.

Tuscan Themed Winery Wedding by Natalie Hilliard Photography

It’s not often you get to escape to Tuscany on a Tuesday, but these lovely winery nuptials from Natalie Hilliard Photography is allowing us to do just that. Filled with beautiful rich tones, stunning florals and rustic Italian details, this tuscan themed wedding, held in an elegant tent, has us beaming from ear to ear and humming Ti Amo over and over to ourselves!

Lovely bride Natalie shares with us the details:

1. What was the vision for your Tuscan themed wedding?

I envisioned a Tuscan villa with many simple, natural elements. And eggplant purple, celadon green, wood & iron for our color palette.

2. What was the size & budget of your wedding?

We ended up spending approximately $14,000.00.

3. Your florals were stunning! What flowers and decorations did you choose for your theme?

  • Ceremony Island Arrangements ~ Salmon Gladiolas, Purple Stock, Green Hypericum, Yellow, Solidago, Green Bells of Ireland, Terra Cotta Rose, Hanging Eucalyptus, Italian Ruscus, Sword Fern.
  • Rusty Iron Spheres ceremony aisle arrangements ~ Mini sunflowers, Purple Stock, Purple Sage, Rosemary, Green Hypericum, Terra Cotta Roses.
  •  Wooden Bowl Reception Centerpieces: Herb Foliage, Purple Lisianthus, Mini Sunflowers, Terra Cotta Roses, Green Hypericum, Physicocarpus.
  • We used antique wooden wine crates from Vintage Ambiance  to use for the dessert buffet tiering. Rustic farm tables (from seattle Farm Tables) were used for the head table, and dinner buffet tables (from Vintage Ambiance) for the guest tables. We also had wine barrels with glass tops for occasional cocktail tables.

4. What do you think made your wedding unique?

The venue itself is very unique! The ceremony site is situated around a pond with an island in the middle of it. The guest sits on one side of the pond and the wedding party stands on the island. Its absolutely beautiful and unlikely anything I have seen before! We did multiple different mini desserts rather than having a wedding cake and we also made all of the beer. We loved it and so did everyone else! Also we decided to hire Chopstix Roadshow for our reception entertainment which is a dueling piano show. The entire show is a live request show so the guests are able to choose what they want to hear. The most fun thing of the night was the photo booth with props that our photographer integrated into our reception. We got some absolutely hilarious and memorable pictures!!

5. Rather than a traditional wedding cake you chose mini desserts. Tell us about those?

We chose a 4 inch mini White-Chocolate raspberry cheesecake as the cutting cake. For guests we had a selection of desserts including mini Quadruple Chocolate and mini Lemon White Chocolate cheesecakes, mini Key Lime blackberry pies and mini classic Apple Pies, mini classic Vanilla and mini Spumoni cupcakes, Hazelnut gelato or Rice gelato.

5. Tell us about your Tuscan themed wedding favors?

We used mini terracotta pots filled with herb starts (ie; basil, tarragon, parsley).

6. Describe your Bridal style?

My dress was from Laineemeg Bridal (formerly From the Gown Up) – an off-white Satin fit and flair, with some lace and rhinestone detailing. My shoes were M by Marinelli with Sparkle silver with rhinestone detailing. I wore a birdcage veil with floral and rhinestone embellishments and carried a bridal bouquet filled with Cream Roses, Orange Dahlias, Cream Hypericum, Orange Calla Lily and Green Hanging Amaranthus. 

7. The bridal party look very smart. Tell us about their style. 

The bridesmaid dresses were from David’s Bridal Satin Dresses in Lapis. The wore Jessica Simpson Black Patent Pumps and their bouquets were filled with Purple callas, Orange Callas, and ornamental grasses. Tyler’s (groom) boutonniere featured a Sword Fern & Mini Purple Calla Lily and his groomsmen wore herb foliage. They wore Banks Charcoal Grey striped suits with white dress shirts from Jos. Tyler wore a white tie, whilst his groomsmen had patterned Lapis ties to match the bridesmaids.

8. Did you include any DIY or personalized details?

I created the monogrammed stickers we used on the candy bags used for our candy buffet. The wooden bowls used for the reception centerpiece were bought from a thrift store, sanded down, and re-stained. I created all of the table name cards (different grape varietal names) and escort cards display. I also designed the save the dates which were laser cut into cork, as well as all of our boxed invitations.

9. What did you find most challenging?

The most challenging part of our wedding planning was working with a caterer who was too busy to deal with me or my questions in a timely manner. I struggled through it and was able to get everything wrapped up, but it was by far my biggest cause of stress. I’m very detailed oriented so I completely enjoyed the planning of everything else right down to picking the different Italian flavor themed cupcakes and other desserts.

10. What were your favourite moments?

Getting ready was very fun… it’s not every day you get to be so pampered! Also, walking down the aisle and looking into the face of my soon-to-be husband is an unforgettable moment. The fact that we were able to share it with so many of our close friends and family made it that much more special!

11. Your advice to Bride’s & Groom’s planning now?

Seek out multiple reviews on your vendors (particularly from outside their website or their given references). Also, I went into planning with the idea that if I hadn’t received some sort of response after a week of contacting a vendor for the first time, I would cross them off my potential list because communication obviously is not very important to them. I broke this rule with my caterer and ended up seriously regretting it!

From the bride:
 
David has always wanted to get married on Halloween and I always wanted a Fall wedding, so we meshed the two together!  The inspiration for the day was for our guests to have fun, whilst still keeping it romantic. We asked our guests to dress in costume since it was a Halloween themed wedding (only a couple days before Halloween). , and it was so fun walking down the aisle seeing everyone dressed up!
 
Michelle, the owner of the Jones Victorian Estate, took my mom and I shopping at Shinoda where we found a lot of the vases, the picket fence for the seating chart, and some other spooky decorations. I went to the Long Beach swap meet to find most of the frames and the old timey clock. I found the old bottles on Etsy and my little sister bought the pumpkin head couple for the guest book table.  The fountain’s water in the middle of the tables was died red to resemble blood and there were fake black ravens placed everywhere.
 
My bridesmaids “bouquets” were my favorite feature. I was inspired by another bride who had used lanterns instead of bouquets in her wedding, so I took her idea and ran with it by adding flowers inside the lanterns. As for the DIY projects we made our Save the Dates, our invites were bought from Michaels, but we printed on them and added the fence with the crow on to the response cards. We made the tutus for my flower girls and their fairy wings are actually butterflies – we just added shoulder straps and covered the butterfly bodies with tulle. My niece {Montana} made the couple in the coffins that were displayed on the sweetheart table, the witch finger cookies were made with some help from my aunt and family friend, we made the “toe tag” escort cards, the Trick-or-Treat banner and the favor bags as well.

Vintage Chic Wedding Theme in Citrus

I want to send out a big hello to all of our lovely Californian couples and talented vendors! We always get to see so much amazing, chic and stylish inspiration coming from the West Coast of USA, and I’m so excited to be able to share all the gorgeousness with you here at the Love Wed Bliss blog! Speaking of chic, we’re kicking things this wedding week with the prettiest little wedding theme ever. Meghan Wiesman Photography, along with an awesome group of vendors, created this stunning vintage chic wedding theme shoot, just bursting with citrus colours and modern shabby chic style. (Australian brides may also want to take note of the wonderful way they incorporated Kangaroo Paws into the florals!). I would just love to see this stunning theme brought to life by a lovely couple out there…. hint hint!

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:
