Pink and Orange Wedding Ideas

Flourish Studio Photography sent along a few pink and orange wedding ideas that could definitely add a little pizzazz to any wedding. We especially love the painted white trees that can easily be used as decor at your wedding alter. Add colorful streamers to a painted tree and voila , you have an instant stylish backdrop.

One of our favorite steal worthy ideas is using fresh fruit as place cards. It’s budget-friendly and an easy way to add a pop of color to your table decor. See more pink and orange wedding ideas in the full gallery.

Classic Wedding Ideas

Adam and Ashley were together for over eight years, so needless to say, she has been dreaming about their wedding together for quite some time. She has changed her mind as often as the wedding trends have changed. So, when the time finally came to actually plan their dream wedding, they both agreed that they wanted a romantic, timeless classic wedding.

Read on to hear more from Ashley and to see more classic wedding ideas visit the full gallery. All of this prettiness was photographed by Austin Gros.

From Ashley:

We knew from the get go that our wedding was going to be on a budget and lots of DIY projects, but not a detail left out! The ceremony site was the first decision we made… Ault Park Rose Garden. The garden is so beautiful that no decor was needed and along with the beautiful music my brother William played, it made the perfect setting for our wedding. Then we found the location of the reception, The Carnegie Event Center. The Carnegie was an old library and had so much charm. It was just the perfect size for our 90 guests and I loved all the original historic detail it had to offer. I started going to local thrift stores and collecting glass vases and wood picture frames. The signs and menus I just made on my computer. We bought the flowers wholesale and two days before the wedding, with the help of my wonderful family and bridal party, we made all the flower arrangements, bouquets, boutonnieres and decorated. I wanted a very whimsical and romantic feel with the flowers and decor. Everything was ivory with gold or wood accents and lots of candles. Being from Texas, I wanted to bring a little of that to our Ohio wedding. The food had a Mexican flare to it and my dad had Dr. Pepper shipped up from the Dublin, TX factory where they still use pure sugar cane and package in glass bottles to give as our favors!! The reception was a blast and we danced the night away with our friends and family!

I found our amazing photographer Austin Gros after hours of searching wedding blogs, and was the searching ever worth it! Austin truly captured what a special day it was for us and we will always be able to remember the special moments of our wedding day looking through these photos for years to come.

Benj Haisch Photography

Benj Haisch Photography shared with us this Pacific Northwest wedding with super cute stationery that the bride designed herself. The groom is a musician and songwriter, so many of the flowers were made of lyrics from his sheet music, even the flowers that the girls threw down the aisle so Erin could walk down to his words. Adorable, right? Love the images of the groom singing to his new bride; so touching. Of course there are so many more images from Benj in the full wedding gallery.

Enough gushing, let’s get back to the wedding, it has all the glamour & style of a big city wedding with the quaintness & comfort of the the piney woods of East Texas.

A few snippets that we would like to share are that the bridal party was encouraged to wear their own choice of shoes and statement jewelry so that they could feel unique and comfortable, and the typical bouquets were swapped for custom over-sized clutches, each adorned with a feather brooch. Be sure to see the entire gallery by clicking here.

Black Tie Boston Wedding

A perfectly lovely Jamaica Plain’s wedding held at the historic Loring-Greenough House. You might want to take note of a few steal-worthy ideas. One being the vintage hankies used as a wedding invitation and later thoughtfully framed. A perfect keepsake.

To see more images from this black tie affair with a vintage vibe, be sure to click here. Captured by Tyra Bleek Photography. Do share with us how much you are in love with the ombre cake. Amazing right?

It is becoming a popular tradition to use vintage typewriters as an alternative to your traditional guest book. Guests get involved and you also have a lovely little decor piece for your new home. Hopefully this trend does not fall out of fashion. We are curious to see what you think about it?

Dogs truly are part of your family and it is always lovely when couples incorporate them into their weddings. Our next couple placed their pooch’s face on homemade beer bottles. Making him the official spokesperson of the wedding. A definite steal-worthy idea.

Speaking of ideas, we also love that they wrote out all the beverages they will be serving on a chalkboard. A clever alternative to an open bar and a bit more cost effective.

Black Aves Dinnerwear By David Pressman Events

An Associate Member of the Royal Academy of Needlework, Sybil Francis was one of the first needlewomen in England. In the 1930’s, she embroidered a pillow that was translated into a copper print engraving and the first Aves dinnerware was produced. Black Aves with Gold was created at Gump’s request and launched as an exclusive for the store in 1987. A monochrome design with 22kt gold edges, the pattern represents the birds of paradise and was originally inspired by silk embroidery.

David Pressman Events designed an entire table around this iconic dinner wear. Complete with fancy lettering by Soolip and one stunning floral centerpiece by Krista Jon. To see the entire shoot by Aaron Delesie be sure to click here.

Elegant Peach Wedding Ideas

Britt wanted her wedding to be classic and elegant with a vintage feel and that relaxed Santa Barbara mood. In order to help fulfill her vision, she enlisted family and friends, and of course, one of our favorite coordinators, Merryl Brown Events. With their help, she was able to achieve this lovely peach Santa Barbara wedding, captured with beauty and grace by Jessica Lewis Photography.

Read on to find out more details from Britt below and of course there are so many more elegant peach wedding ideas to see. Click here to view the entire gallery.

From the bride, Britt:

“I designed the books on the table, but they were put together by Maggie Hammer in IL, who is a friend of my mom. The guests’ escort cards each had a place on them in lieu of a table number. If their card said ‘San Remy’ then the book at their table was ‘San Remy’. Each book had a write up of a different place Roni and I had been together. I also wanted to have pictures of the different places in the books. Each book also contained questions for the guests to fill out, for example, ‘What is one book that Britt should read and one that Roni should read?’ I wanted my wedding to be very personal. I also wanted to have lasting memories; so many people had told me that your wedding night flies by and it was very hard to remember. I wanted to have peoples thoughts and memories from my wedding forever. I chose fabric over ribbon to tie the books together with because fabric frays. I wanted the books to have a vintage feel and frayed fabric helped to do that. The fabric was tied in big bows to give it a girly feel.

“One of my bridesmaids is an artist and drew out birds that were printed onto mugs that I used for wedding favors. She also drew the peony that was used on the escort cards. I wanted my wedding to be as personal as possible, so I did all that I could myself and what I couldn’t do (like drawing) I had my close friends and family do. More than anything I really wanted my wedding to be memorable and fun.”

Classic Peach Wedding Ideas

Be Inspired PR shared with us Kristy Rice of Momental Designs 10 year anniversary. This big renewal bash that was an eclectic mix of vintage finds and artful details. From depression glass centerpieces to hand painted western novel invitations and a Sylvia Weinstock Cake inspired by Kristy’s artwork, the couple infused every last corner of the 1800’s Victorian summer home with details that spoke of their personality and life together. Read on to learn more details.

THE INVITATIONS: After a magical time in Zion National Park renewing our vows we could hardly wait for the big party in Pennsylvania to celebrate with those who were unable to travel. Bringing a touch of the southwest to our party in PA was really important, so when I found this collection of Zane Grey Novels I knew I had to include them somehow.

Zane Grey was a prolific western adventure author who spent the later years of his life in Pennsylvania. The historical landmark that once was his home is 45 minutes from ours! The symbolism was perfect; western writer who spends his later years near our hometown. And the price wasn’t too shabby either; only $0.65 per book at a local vintage shop!

Betsy Dunlap’s work has been present throughout our renewal invitations and save the dates so I saw it fitting to have her create an image that I could have turned into a rubber stamp. I knew hand painting 75 books would be a chore but didn’t want to make it an impossible task. Betsy penned a frame of text that repeated the words “Kristy and Adam 10 Years.” I then imposed one of my Cosmo illustrations and sent the image off to a stamp maker. White acrylic was brushed onto the stamp and voila, our altered book invitations were begun!

Each bloom was then painted with various color inks; four shades of orange and red, a touch of gold, and three shades of green. Rich, heavy strokes of color were added to each bloom to contrast the rough, water-stained shape the books were in when we found them. Black velvet ribbon acted as a simple bookmark to discover the page in the book where the actual invitation was adhered. Betsy also created the calligraphy for the kraft paper address labels, which were adhered to boxes that contained the party invitation and Zane Grey novels.

Chicago Farm Wedding

Welcome to Weekend Wedding where we make sure you get your all the inspiration you need to make it through the weekend. Today we have Tom and Alexa’s Chicago Farm Wedding.

The couple was married at Alexa’s family farm in the northwest suburbs of Chicago where not only her parents were married, but her two sisters as well. The farm is full of the family’s precious antiques and heirlooms, and nostalgia lingers in the air. They chose the 39th anniversary of Alexa’s parents, June 26th to wed. They tied the knot in the same small church as her parents and sisters before riding in her grandmother’s Rolls Royce to the family farm. Cocktail hour was enjoyed surrounding the pool and later guests moved into the tent to dance the night away to an 8 piece orchestra. A special thanks to KT MERRY for sharing this with us.

Classic Malibu Wedding

Michelle & Barrett had a relaxed wedding at The Adamson House in Malibu. Michelle was inspired by a small vignette of succulents, shells and crystallized rock that they placed on their head table. They brought in the laid back and relaxed feeling of the beach with turquoise & purple accents, a lounge for guests to relax and flowing organic florals. Barrett & Michelle took on quite a bit on their own. Barrett handmade all of the beer at their home. Michelle handmade grapefruit liquor from the grapefruit tree at their newly purchased home. The labels, coordinating with the rest of the paper materials, fit the theme perfectly. As they are both from the east coast, they really wanted all of their out of town guests to feel comfortable. To have fun. To be able to relax. It was the perfect event for just that. Relaxed. Fun.

Bel Air Bay Club Wedding In Pacific Palisades

Classic, traditional and graceful sums up this Bel Air Bay Club wedding in a nutshell. Lauren and Mitch had an elegant wedding filled to the brim with elegant touches.

Their Jewish and Christian wedding took place on the grass of Bel Air Bay Club overlooking the ocean. Lauren’s dress was absolutely stunning. The bride glowed. Mitch wasn’t dressed in the typical black suit, but rather a brown one that helped accent Lauren’s dress. The whole wedding party was dressed in Earth tones, which went nicely with the theme of the reception. The reception had a market place feel with the tables being named after herbs. As the bride and groom left, their guests gathered handfuls of white rose petals to shower them with. This was a cute twist on the throwing of the rice tradition.

Sara France Photography did an excellent job capturing this event with grace and elegance, and Savoir Flair Wedding Coordinating created a memorable atmosphere that the couple and their guests will remember forever.

Elegant La Jolla Wedding

Prepare for something simply delightful from Boutwell Studio that’s totally going to inspire you. We have the elegant wedding of Brett and Melissa, held at one of our favorite San Diego wedding venues, The Estancia Resort. Nestled in the heart of Torrey Pines on nine acres in a unique rancho style, the intimate outdoor gardens and elegant indoor spaces set the stage for any wedding.

Enjoy all the lovely details and classic touches that could not have been accomplished without month of coordinator Brooke Keegan Weddings and Events.

Bubbles and butterflies are quite nice but, Brett and Melissa opted to place adorably designed bags on each guests chair filled with cut out paper hearts. They called it, “The Heart Parade!” Guests were prompted to tear open the paper bag, grab hearts and shower the newlyweds with cut out paper hearts. You have to admit the idea is utterly adorable.

We know that you are going to swoon over all of the soft and sweet wedding touches that Brett and Melissa incorporated into their wedding details. Another steal worthy idea is to post your family and friends photo booth pictures on your wedding web site for everyone to see. How cute is the sign that they made above?

Atlanta Elegant Wedding

Meghan and David had a small budget and less than six months to plan their Atlanta wedding. With the gracious help from family and friends they were able to pull off their dream wedding. Meghan dove right in and created most of the wedding projects on her own. At times she was overwhelmed, but knew that the money she was saving and the rewards of DIY wedding projects would outweigh the stress. Photographed by Atlanta wedding photographer, Jeremy of Harwell Photography.

From the bride on her DIY projects: To start, I drew an oak tree that would be on our programs and party favors. My desire was to create an environment that was elegant, yet airy and whimsical. The venue was at my dear friend’s home. The setting was perfect for the vision and theme of the wedding. I spent time studying inspiring wedding blogs and etsy, which expanded my vision. My wonderful Aunts and friends did all the flower arrangements, bouquets and centerpieces and made the delicious cakes.

The original 1907 style architecture still embodies elements of the nautical history of San Francisco in its heyday, its plush, stylish decor nestles guests in an accommodating, stimulating environment that is both modern and comforting. Since Patrick went to the Maritime academy, it only made sense to update the style of the wedding to nautical theme with vintage flair.

Monica daunted a flirty tea length Melissa Sweet Dress along with a pair of satin navy blue peep toe pumps. Love the tea length gown it looks adorable on her don’t you think? Captured by Larissa Cleveland Photography.

A Beyond Stylish Orange County Wedding

Honestly we really cannot gush enough about Hugh Forte Photography! His work is beyond stylish thus the reason why he snags up some of the chicest weddings around. Without a doubt our next wedding is no exception, filled to the brim with elements of the past, whimsical florals and pastel details. Josh and Marci’s Orange County wedding is sure to inspire.

Read on to find out how Marci and Josh’s wedding came to life.

From The Bride on her wedding details!

Inspiration for our wedding came after I found my dress; Blair Britt (our wedding coordinator) and I completely fell in love with the vintage lace look of the dress, and knew we would take advantage of the vintage look throughout the wedding. Josh had no idea what my dress looked like, but liked the colors and theme we proposed. Once we picked the theme of our wedding, we knew we immediately wanted to go with Hugh Forte Photography. His style of photography worked so well with our desired theme.

We had a wonderful time collecting different vases and going to antique stores; however, our true excitement came when Blair Britt found a vintage desk at an antique store that she refurbished for us to use as for our dessert table. We painted it white, and it really set the stage for the cake and dessert (all made by Jay’s Catering). Josh and I also wanted a backdrop for our dessert table, so Blair came up with the idea of making a ribbon backdrop.

Our florists Jayne used about 5 vases/jars at every table. Each table was unique in that we didn’t have a uniform look, but instead put together various combination of jars for the tables. Joie De Vie (the jewelry and paper good company owned/operated by Blair Britt) put together all of the paper goods and bridal/bridesmaid jewelry at our wedding. It was great to maintain the same theme throughout our rsvps, invitations, menus, programs, fans, etc.

The highlight of our wedding was the same day ceremony video footage that was created by Tom O’Hara and Matthew Forrey from Aqua Vivus Productions. They surprised us by creating a quick edit of the ceremony to be played at the reception; it is the one part of our wedding that our guests can’t stop talking about.

Eco-Friendly Wedding Celebration

Theresa and Giovanni wanted their wedding to be a family-centric and eco-friendly celebration, and we worked together to make it just that! Theresa’s family is largely from Iowa, while Giovanni’s is from Italy; so this wedding was such a fun fusion of cultures. They even hired an Italian DJ/emcee so that he could translate the ceremony into Italian for Giovanni’s family.

The venue was the garden of a private home in the San Fernando Valley owned by the founder/executive chef of Savor Solar Catering, Susan Rigali. Susan is an organic caterer with many years of experience in eco-conscious catering. She grows her own produce on the property and uses a huge solar-powered oven to prepare her delicious meals. Wedding guests dined alfresco at long feasting tables in the garden, enjoying an Italian-inspired feast prepared by Susan (who also happens to be Italian!).

Thanks to Katy Carrier Events for sharing this eco friendly wedding with us and Benjamin Lowry Photography for capturing this lovely wedding.

SmogShoppe Los Angeles Wedding

We have a special treat to share with you today from Picotte Photography! The colorful SmogShoppe wedding of Dan and Joanna who married on a sunny California day in May. The happy couple fell in love with the venue the minute they set foot on the property! The renovated auto repair shop is located in a rapidly evolving arts district in Culver City. The SmogShoppes eclectic style and sustainable design practices perfectly fit the couple’s personality.

LaPartie Events did a sparkling job with all the details and extra touches. One touch we especially love is the use of succulents in their flower arrangements and that they encouraged the guests to take them home after the reception. A great idea to ensure less waste on your special day. Read on to hear more about the wedding day.

Picotte Photography also does Cinematography.

They used photos from their engagement shoot with Picotte Photography to create the guest book. A ton of online web sites offer great photo albums that you can create and use as guest books. A a great one that we recommend is blurb.

Rather than giving traditional wedding favors to each guest, the couple made cash donations to the Susan G. Koman for the Cure Foundation and Partners in Health (two organizations that are meaningful to each of them).  They then printed place cards memorializing the contributions and thanking each of their guests for attending. What a great idea!

From Joanna on skipping the wedding photo booth:

There is an empty closet at SmogShoppe commonly used for the ever-popular wedding photo booth. We, however, skipped the instant picture option and put the space (and our money) to use in a different way by hosting a booze tasting bar (separate from the regular bar) with a personal touch.  The bar featured special whiskeys (Dan’s drink of choice) and sparkling wines (Joanna’s favorite), that for one reason or another had a special place in the bride and groom’s life. A “Whiskey & Bubbles” printed menu sat atop the bar to explain the significance of each selection.

How delicious does all the food look?

Dan and Joanna skipped the traditional wedding cake and opted instead for a desert table, featuring Apple Tart Tatins, hand-torched s’mores with brulee banana, and homemade doughnuts (fried fresh on site and served with a variety of tasty dipping sauces). Looks so incredibly yummy!

Palm Springs Wedding At The O’Donnell House

Anna and Brandon live in snowy Canada and wanted to have a wedding filled with sunshine. The obvious choice would be Palm Springs, where the sun is rarely shy and the skies are always blue.

They settled on The O’Donnell House for their wedding venue. What makes The O’Donnell House a little different than a boutique hotel is that offer two different large houses that you can stay in and hold your wedding and reception. Nestled against a mountainside in the heart of Old Palm Springs Village, this makes a more intimate desert wedding. Thanks to JAC Photography for sharing this desert wedding with us. Take note of all the exquisite flower designed by Luna Salomon. We especially love the anemone wedding bouquet and birch trees used as vases. Everything is simple yet elegant.

It is actually a very famous church in NYC it was the first Roman Catholic Church in New York City, the site of the famous Irish and American turf wars. But even more famously it was the church where the last scene in the Godfather was filmed.

San Francisco Intimate Wedding

All weddings are so different some are in the rustic country with hay rides and cherry pies. Some are in ballrooms with candelabras and tiaras. Others are just small intimate gatherings filled with family friends in your living room. That is what Jennifer and Mark wanted and they planned it in less than a week and tied the knot with all that they held near and dear. Captured by Zoom Photography.

DIY Texas Wedding

Our next Texas wedding was dubbed the, “Macho,” wedding by the bride and groom. A combination of the bride and groom’s names, Tiffany Ma and Danny Cho. How cute is that? Basically everything you see here was hand made by the bride. Hours and hours of love and preparation went into making all the little wedding goodies. The cake topper took her 5 hours to hand paint. Another great idea that we thought you would love was their centerpieces. Each table had a small postcard with descriptions of their travel adventures together.

This DIY extravaganza was captured by Texas wedding photographer Love Lee Photography! We had the pleasure of meeting Margaret at our last Stylelab workshop. To see some of that nautical goodness you can click here.

Guestless Texas Wedding Ceremony

When we first looked at this wedding that Stacy Reeves Photography shared with us we noticed immediately that everything seemed to be quite still. Come to find out that this wedding actually an elopement.. The only people present were the bride and groom, the officiant, Stacy Reeves Photography, and their two hunting dogs!  They wanted something low key, relaxed, and intimate, and that’s exactly what they got. It was rather different and sweet so we wanted to share it with you if you.
