Modern Whimsical Wedding in Black, White, Gold & Pink

Black and white and gold all over, with a touch of pink – what’s not to love about this fun color palette beautifully curated by the talented Haydee of Sweetest Celebrations. An elegant black tie wedding is elevated to new heights with subtle accents in gold, and a flash of hot pink brings an unexpected whimsical flair to the event.

The Inspiration:

The modern bride is someone who takes a classic and romantic gown with a full ruffled skirt and gives it new life with a fun organza flower. Classic stripes in black and white bring a modern feel to the event, from the drinks served under a circus like tent in stripes, to the fun boutonniere worn by the groom.

Gold flatware and plating treats guests like royalty, but the striped straws keep the event casual, while adding a touch of whimsy at the same time. Pink and gold are scattered throughout the wedding in unexpected places — the tiny flags on the straws, the monogram cake topper, and some fun balloons that can be used as photo props for the guests and bridal party. 

This inspiration board is the perfect combination of the modern and whimsical. It is for the modern, hip couple that wants to have fun at their wedding, while still providing their guests with a beautifully elegant experience.

Whimsical Winnipeg Wedding by Sugar & Soul Photography

I think offbeat handmade celebrations have reached an entirely new level with this whimsical Winnipeg wedding.  Not only is it bursting with a kaleidoscope of colours from beginning to end, but there is so much creativity and eclectic fun in each and every detail, it makes you feel like a kid in a candy store. With a breakfast buffet for dinner (yes indeed breakfast!), personalized table settings with cartoon caricatures of the couple, and oodles of paper decorations and glitter, it’s a carnival style affair which is fun, fun and more fun!  And don’t get me started on the incredible DIY heart bouquets or the mock ‘newspaper’ invites – they’re just so unique and friggin fabulous! All these amazing theatrics were captured in brilliant images by Sugar & Soul Photography – so skip to it my friends and soak up all the whimsy!

Bride Nancy shares the details:

The Proposal

We are avid Vegas travellers, so on my 30th birthday, we met up with 10 other friends in Vegas to celebrate! On the night of my birthday, I noticed one of my friends crying! Whilst I was wondering what was wrong with her? (she already knew…), Dylan came up to me and said, “I’m sorry your gift I sent didn’t arrive yet,” (it was a pair of wicked platforms from my favourite designer Iron Fist) –  “But I wanted to give you something right now.” Dylan dropped to one knee and held up the bling! I couldn’t stop screaming “Are you serious?! Are you kidding me?!” over and over. I called my Mom at 5.30am Winnipeg time. She thought we had won the money jackpot!

Wedding Style

I’m very eclectic, so I didn’t really have a theme. Our wedding was based around the concept of the things we loved and that were important to us…magic, relationships, and just a plain ol’ wicked time!

Invitations

The wedding invitations were designed to look like an old newspaper (11”x14,” folded), complete with two articles – one about how we met and the other about our engagement. The ads featured information about places to stay, directions, ceremony information and the breakfast buffet. The RSVP’s were a tear off coupon that said “in order to reserve seats you had to fill in the blanks and send back before the contest closes on a certain date.” 

Bouquets

I didn’t want to spend a ton on flowers and then have to throw them out. My bouquet was made up of 12 heart stems (discovered at Dollarama around Valentine’s Day), which I combined with two giant red ostrich feathers, a couple of smaller feathers, and then wrapped it with teal ribbon to match my dress and added rhinestones. The bridesmaid bouquets also had heart stems but with baby blue sequin stems and champagne coloured ostrich feathers wrapped with champagne ribbon. Now, I have my bouquet in my studio that looks as fresh as it did on my wedding day!

Dress & Boutonnieres

My wedding dress was lovingly handmade by my Mom from a $9 vintage dress (with inspiration from the blog, A Beautiful Mess). The boy’s boutonnieres were made by my sister from my design. They featured feathers, glitter and beads.

Ceremony

The wedding was at a campground just out of the city and the scenery was awesome! We’re cabin people.. so this was just absolutely PERFECT! We got married beside a rushing river, under a giant tree, then moved the party just across the grass to a beautiful cabana with wooden beams, chandeliers, and shutters on two sides that opened up and let in the fresh air. There were some cute surprises during our ceremony including 2 secret ring bearers. The rings were randomly taped under 2 chairs and at the right time of the ceremony everyone had to flip their chairs over – it was such a great idea! We also had fans for our guest. These were displayed in a box with a sign saying “JOIN THE FAN CLUB”. The fans had “I’m a Fan of Nancy & Dylan” on the front, and all wedding party info on the back. •My nephews drew the “Here Comes the Bride” sign for my entrance – so cute.

Reception

The seating chart was SO FUN! Everyone had their own ticket which said their name and “Scratch until you find your table.”.  Each guest’s place setting had a placemat designed with our cartoon characters and included a crossword puzzle, word search, a maze, and the best quote about breakfast for dinner! We also had special ones made for the kids. The tables were covered in brown tablecloths with strips of kraft paper rolls so people could draw on them during the night! The centrepieces were vintage tins and glass jars/decanters with amazing glitter decorations and a single stem of white hydrangea, crayons and giant white diamonds. We even had a magician do some amazing table magic throughout the night!

Wedding Menu

We served a breakfast buffet for dinner (who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner?! It’s a staple in our house!!), complete with waffles, eggs, bacon and omelette station. There was the most delicious mini sticky buns from a local baker, a chocolate fountain for mounds of fruit, and chocolate milk on tap! For dessert we had a buffet of some of our favourite treats – nanimo bars, gluten free brownies, Americana cookies, Fork Cookies, Nibs, Lemon Tarts, Banana Cream tarts, sour soothers, the best organic/vegan carrot cake and a spectacular banana/chocolate cake that was designed to look like a huge stack of pancakes! Later in the night we had pizza delivered and Dylan and I walked around the cabana and handed out boxes of pizza! This was one of the highlights! We also had a bonfire later on and had ingredients for s’mores. 

Favours

Hot chocolate cones, with chocolate chips, cinnamon hearts and mini marshmallows

Other DIY & Personalized Details
  • Donations were collected for the Winnipeg Humane Society if people wanted to see us kiss!
  • We hung a handmade glitter sign with “Nancy + Dylan =4 Eva” above the main wedding table. We also had a red glitter sign above the dessert table saying “Goodie Goodie Gumdrops” (my sister and I always said this when we got excited).
  • Guests were given mason jars as glasses. Each jar had a tag for the guest to sign their name and a cute poem with instructions. 
  • Signature drinks included a chick drink: Cranberry Splash, and a dude drink: Pucker up Sucker.
  • Our guestbook was custom designed and included questions for guests to answer rather then just signing their names.
  • Through the night, guests could help themselves to a popcorn machine and a gumball machine filled with jelly beans (pennies provided). 
  • Our campsite and camper was decorated amazingly by our friends!

{Cake Inspiration} Ruffled Wedding Cake in Pink & Gray

I would have to say this pretty two tiered concoction with layers and layers of delicate gray, white and pink ombre ruffles literally ‘takes the cake’ as far as I’m concerned. What girl wouldn’t be smitten with this amazing ruffled wedding cake? It’s so pretty.. and whimsical… and ethereal, you want to wrap yourself in it from head to toe!  This will have to be filed under one of my favorites for 3 big swoon-worthy reasons: 1. It has a pretty pastel palette in vintage tones of pink and gray 2. It’s topped with a gorgeous crown of plump peonies, and 3. I love the ombre design – it gives the cake a modern meets vintage vibe all rolled in to one! Yes, I’m sold. Bring down the hammer! That will be ‘one fabulous wedding cake to go‘ thanks!

Bride Liz shares: 

What was your wedding vision?

For our wedding we wanted to make sure that it was a memorable night for us and our guests but we also wanted to make sure everyone had a great time filled with good food, dancing, and great friends.

Color Palette

Our wedding colors were chocolate brown and khaki with pops of apple green.

Ceremony Decor

To decorate the ceremony site we used shepherd hooks with hanging vases full of baby’s breath and tall glass cylinders with apples and hydrangea to line the aisles. A friend of ours made us a cedar wedding arbor as his present to us and it was decorated with a large hydrangea and curly willow arrangement.

Reception Details

To decorate the cocktail hour we used glass vases with brown ribbon and hydrangea on the tables. We also had games on some of the high top tables as decorations. Guests were encouraged to play Guess Who? But instead of of the typical characters you would see we put in pictures of all of our family members. The game Headbanz was also out for guests to play. But instead of guessing different objects on the headbands they had to give each other clues about what Wedding Party Member they were.

For the reception tables we used chocolate brown linens with gold overlays and chocolate pin tuck table runners. We used a combination of high and low centerpieces. Some tables had tall cylinder glass vases filled with apples, curly willow and hydrangea. The other half of the tables had Manzanita trees with hanging glass votives and crystal jewels. The entire room was also illuminated by candlelight, and uplighted with green uplights.

Wedding Attire

I had a Casablanca wedding gown in ivory. We had chocolate brown bridesmaid dresses with apple green Nina shoes, and gold and pearl necklaces with apple green flowers on them. The groom and groomsmen wore khaki suits with chocolate brown vests, and brown with green argyle ties and socks.

DIY Details

We tried to include as many personalized details as possible. We used monograms on almost all the vases for a added touch. Our favors were wine glass that we dipped in chalkboard paint and wrote guests names on them to double as place-cards. When we displayed them on the placecard table we put lampshades on each wine glass and illuminated them with battery operated tea lights.

Wedding Menu

We served all mini-dishes for cocktail hour. From mini carmelized mac n’ cheese, strawberry shortcake bites, mini pork sliders, and a taco bar. Also for cocktail hour we served signature cocktails: “Married Mojito,” “Foster Fizz,” and “I-do Margaritas.” Also, after dinner we had a s’mores stations and an Italian Dessert Bar (made by my Grandmother!) with over 700 cookies and pastries.

Verandas Manhattan Beach Wedding by Figlewicz Photography

I’m absolutely besotted with this stunning wedding at Verandas in Manhattan Beach California. There are so many gorgeous details to love, I’m not quite sure where to start? But I promise, I’ll do my best. First up, there’s the beautiful bride glowing from tip to toe. Her handsome groom who just happens to be a fireman (who doesn’t love a fireman?). A refreshing color palette of purple, green and yellow tastefully used throughout, and the prettiest floral decorations turning the outdoor ceremony into a blooming paradise. Then, to add just the right amount of whimsy, there’s a fun array of photo props, and a unique ice cream cookie sandwich to replace the traditional wedding cake! Love, love, love! Figlewicz Photography did the perfect job of capturing all the elements of this outdoor beauty and we couldn’t be more thrilled they chose to share it with us. So take 5, settle in, and lap up all the loveliness for as long as you can.

We asked beautiful bride Bayley to share the details:

Location 

James is a Manhattan Beach fireman and we wanted to keep the wedding location in Manhattan so the guys on duty could still come to the wedding. We looked around online and I saw my first picture of the Verandas, looking down the staircase outside in the courtyard, and I never looked back. 

Color Palette

James and I love to hangout with our friends and family and wanted our wedding to be fun with plenty of dancing. I was not very particular in my planning, I am very easy going and in looking through a few magazines I saw a color palette of purple, green, and pale yellow and I liked it, so we went from there. I was referred to Commerce Flowers and after meeting with them; we had planned out simple but elegant flowers for the wedding.

Wedding Cake

James and I aren’t fans of wedding cake, but we do love the ice cream cookie sandwiches from a local Manhattan Beach creamery. We were able to get them delivered for dessert and they even made us a giant cookie sandwich to cut as our cake!

Wedding Favors

For wedding favors we decided to make a donation to The Widows, Orphans, and Disabled Fireman’s Fund. We had cards made and I attached them all to a tube of bubbles. These, along with the seating chart boards were my two DIY projects.

Decor

One of my favorite details of the wedding was that my cousin and his friend started their own business turning wine bottles into candles (www.glassed-over.com) and he made candles with labels of pictures from our engagement shoot, for the wedding favors.

Biggest Challenge

I didn’t really come across too many challenges in planning the wedding, which was a relief. I planned so much of the wedding in the first two months we were engaged so it was hard to wait until November!

Favorite Moment

I had so many great moments but one of my favorites was my first look with James before the ceremony. I will never forget standing at the top of the stairs with my dad waiting to walk down the aisle. I loved having my whole family together in one place, James’ parents are from Australia and it was such a great time having them here. We still talk with all of our friends about how much fun we had at the reception. Sharing my vows with James was also very special and important to the both of us.

Congratulations Bayley and James! We just love you and your gorgeous wedding day – and and now that we know you have family ties in Australia we have to love you even more!

{Cake Inspiration} Pretty Croquembouche with Spun Sugar

The historical French croquembouche with it’s majestic design and historical origins, will always come in and out of vogue for weddings. We’re seeing a bit of a comeback of late – just like this gorgeous creation from an equally stunning handmade Sydney wedding. I love how the over-the-top design is toned down by displaying it on a rustic-style timber log. And the use of spun sugar and teeny-tiny white flowers give it a magical and whimsical look – a lovely mix of organic, glam and pretty. I expect we will see more croquembouche’s inspired by this year’s glamorous wedding trend making an appearance.
