Travel Theme Wedding At The Smog Shoppe

Jenn and Victor are known for their love of wanderlust. So it seemed only natural that their wedding theme would be “around the world”. They carefully displayed art and objects collected  from various countries and used a map for their seating chart. Be sure to take note of the map it is quite a piece of art itself. They also incorporated Jenn’s Chinese heritage and Vic’s Mexican heritage throughout their cocktail hour, making it truly personal.

Enjoy more of this travel theme wedding at The Smog Shoppe photographed by Sweet Monday Photography in the full gallery.

Each guests was given a paper flower before they sat down for the wedding ceremony. After Jenn and Victor became husband and wife guests were asked to toss the flowers. Such a fun and idea.

For their reception, they had amazing BBQ to pay homage to Victor’s Texas roots as well as their mutual love of the BBQ. We love how they infused both of their heritages into their wedding favors. Saying thank you in both their languages on the favor tags is super cute.

Real Bridal Flower Accessories

We are head over heels with this next wedding idea. Using Real flowers in lieu of a traditional bouquet, or in addition to a bouquet. Ranging from bracelets, headbands, necklaces, belts even your wedding garter. Of course you must use hearty flowers that would not wilt quickly and would retain their shape & suppleness throughout a wedding day.

Melissa Schollaert Photography and Birch Blooms were inspired by all of the dresses featured at 2012 Spring Bridal Collection. Many gowns included flowers or natural floral motifs created out of fabric, ribbon and other accoutrements. Many of these flower details were found not only on the gowns, but also worn as headbands or in other accessories. Such a brilliant idea. See more real bridal flower accessories in the full wedding gallery.

Princess Wedding Ideas

eph*ra event design shared with us all these utterly romantic princess wedding ideas. Instead of a grand ball room theme, they opted to go with a charming garden setting. They layered lace, with soft pink flowers, green moss and vintage books.

They had such a lovely idea of having the bride display some her favorite  things at the table to represent her on her wedding day … a hand-painted tray, delicate mirrors, tiny lotus dishes, a crystal decanter, a frog prince, bunny bookends, old family pictures, chandeliers and bird cages. The beautiful pink silk boxed invitation and coordinating table numbers and menus tie in perfectly to the theme. Don’t you think? To see more princess wedding ideas click here.

Old Fashioned Garden Wedding

Jen Rodriguez Photography shared with us this bright and cheery old fashioned garden wedding. Overflowing with seriously pretty wedding bouquets from April Flowers.

In fact, all of the wedding arrangements were pretty amazing. Janine, the bride, wanted an eclectic mix of lustrewear teacups and old bottles to hold a variety of blooms mixed with berries. There are so many more pretty floral pictures in the full gallery for all you pinners here. Love Me Simple created the custom ombre ceremony backdrop that is oh so fabulous.

The bride and groom were married at the Olallieberry Inn in Cambria, CA. It was a destination wedding and the couple wanted to treat their guests, mainly family, for this intimate wedding. The Olallieberry Inn holds a special place in the couple’s heart because this Inn is where the bride Janine’s parents stayed every year when they would visit Cambria. Janine’s father has passed away and being able to not only share this special place with the rest of their family, but to get married there just made the location that much more special. They brought in the talented ladies of Events Redefined to help pull Janine’s vision together.

Vintage/Anthropologie Themed Wedding

Allison wanted a vintage/anthropologie theme, which she knew is super popular, however she wanted to put her own little spin on the theme. Do not fret, she gives complete insight on the entire day. With a little help from her friends and some serious style – this wedding is surely to inspire. To see the entire wedding that was captured by onelove photography and read more from the bride. Be sure to click here.

From Allison on the ceremony site:

The curtain panels was something I wanted to do instead of an arch, which is very pricey. I purchased 27 yds of fabric (3 monochromatic tones of natural) from the Los Angeles downtown area and designed panels to create a neutral classic look for both sides of the gate. It provided two purposes; to mask the reception, and to create a ceremonial focal point. Gretchen Durgan with Flower Power LA only added to it’s design by suspending my little vintage bottles filled with flowers with jute twine.

Allison collected old photos and documents from both sides of the family and thought they would look awesome displayed on ripped dropcloth garlands that were made by visual merchadiser, Patrick Michael Masterso. The ripped dropcloth was originally hung in the window of Urban Outfitters, which I run by all the time and is how I came up with the idea. Patrick donated them to me for free and used the wooden clothespins and shipping tags to finish off my design and break the trend of hanging photos just on a clothesline.

In order to make these do-it-yourself table numbers Allison removed the glass and spray painted them with chalkboard paint and hand wrote each number with chalkboard marker. A steal worthy idea that we are sure you are going to take note of.

You might notice a fantastic bird garland in many of the photos, a $30 decoration that took forever to make and required the assistance of Allison and her friends. There are more close up views of this spectacular diy project in the full gallery. Amazing the things you can do with paper.

This lucky couple is the winner of the 2010 Choura Events Facebook Events Giveaway with De-Lovely Events. You must watch their submission video on YouTube here. It is pretty hilarious.

Vintage Chic Portugal Wedding

Today we are off to Portugal for Mariana and Duarte’s vintage chic wedding. This wedding is overflowing with family heirlooms, such as a small art deco chest that carried the rings. The rings were made with the same gold used for Duarte’s great-grandfather wedding rings. The earrings Mariana had were from her Grandmother and some vintages pins she wore on her beautiful dress were from her Aunt. Talk about keeping it in the family.

Brancoprata captured this wedding and knows for a fact that all the guests danced the night away until 6am. To see more wedding details from this vintage chic wedding click here.

How sweet is Mariana and Duarte’s wishing tree table? Filled with sentimental items including Mariana’s Aunt’s art nouveau ink holders. Guests were asked to write their well wishes and then pin them to a small olive tree with a clothes pin. Incredibly cute, don’t you think?

Steal worthy idea:

The couple made table numbers out of doilies and a gigantic doilies tree showed guest were would they be seated. How much do you love that? Brancoprata did all the flowers (except for the church flowers), and we love the simple yet incredibly chic little arrangements scattered throughout. As far as the flowers, they used a mix of coral and pink colors. They incorporated glass cake stands from Marinha Grande, crochet doilies, egg holders, old bottles, cake stands and bell jars candle holders to hold they flowers, a very old weighing-machine … everything was used and incorporated to make the vintage look more modern and chic. We love it.

A Simply Shabby Chic Wedding

Before we dive into this week’s Sweet Treats we had to share with you Mary and Dana’s backyard wedding. Mary actually found a vintage green tandem bike in Santa Cruz that she wanted to use as her wedding theme … and after discovering our Tandem Bike Free Printable Wedding Invitations Templates, she was all about it. We love it! She also looks pretty darn cute in our Vintage Bride Tee shirt captured by Jessica Burke Photograpy. To see more delicious photographs be sure to see the entire wedding gallery.

Fortunately for Mary, her mom owns an antique shop, Junk in the Trunk … how cute is that name? So sourcing a lot of her decor was relatively easy. The milk bottle vases were found at various flea markets that her mom frequents, and the banners were made by the bride herself and she sells for holidays in her mom’s store. How stinking cute are those personalized wine labels? Remember so many more shabby chic wedding ideas to see in the wedding gallery.

Summer Floral Ideas From Signature Bloom

If you are still on the fence on what your wedding florals are going to be, we have some marvelous ideas for you form Signature Bloom. From the sweet and lovely garden bouquet all the way to an elegant vintage number for all you hopeless romantics out there. Each bouquet is described perfectly so you can share with your florist your exact vision. All photographed by Lacie Hansen.

Be sure to see the full gallery of wedding bouquets here.

Spring garden daisy wedding bouquet for a rustic casual garden wedding.

Soft and loosely arranged, this bouquet looks like it came straight from the garden. It’s perfect for the sweet bride that loves Daisies. Garden roses and fragrant herbs add fullness, texture and scent while the bow finishes the bouquet with nice country flair.

Flowers: Daisies, Daffodils, Garden Roses, Ranunculuses, Mimosas, herbs and foliage

Peony wedding bouquet for the modern bride looking for pops of color.

This bouquet is sweet and innocent, yet playful. The Peonies look so delicious; they almost look like cotton candy. The vibrant hues of yellow, coral and hot pink blend nicely together; making this an ideal bouquet for a summer wedding.

Flowers: Peonies, Craspedias, Tulips, Roses, Ranunculuses, Mimosas and foliage

A classic spring bouquet complete with berries and major pops of color.

Spring inspired bouquet featuring some of the best flowers of the season. Anemones and Peonies open beautifully and the Hyacinths with their signature sweet fragrance are the stars of this beautiful composition. A few Hyacinth blossoms will do since the scent is so strong. For a pop of color, add some lime green Viburnums to this classic bouquet.

Flowers: Anemones, Roses, Peonies, Hyacinths, Viburnums and Viburnum berries.

A romantic vintage bouquet with lace and pearls.

This romantic vintage bouquet has an understated elegance. Instead of real feathers, Astilbe is used to add a pretty soft, feathery texture to the bouquet. The white lace is a nice contrast to the flowers and the brooch and pearl strands add some personal touches.

Flowers: Amnesia Roses, Stock, Sweet Peas, Scabiosa Pods, Astilbe and Astrantia

Kate Spade Inspired Wedding Ideas

This eclectic, chic photo shoot was inspired completely by Kate Spade. MMD Events wanted to create a table reflecting the eclectic, bright colors and chic design. The absolute perfect location for this eclectic chic inspiration shoot was the Postcard Inn, a fabulous new boutique hotel located on St. Pete Beach. Everything was focused and designed around a bold pattern and the colors of kelly green, hot pink, gold, orange, and black and white. Read on hear more about how this Kate Spade Wedding shoot came to life. All photographed beautifully by Florida wedding photographer, Tina Bass Photography

Be sure to check out all the details by clicking here

We wanted to show brides that they can use bright colors and bold patterns and still be chic and modern. Placed with unique plates, the simple, chic menus created by Emily Ley Paper were the starting element. A simplistic colored border and matching font coordinated with the color of the napkins and the “place books”. Place cards created by Emily were made to look like “titles” for miniature books, doubling as favors at each place setting. Various found objects and a unique table number created by Every Last Detail added to the eclectic feel for the table.

A gorgeous centerpiece in shades of pink garden roses was placed on top of fashion magazines, standing out against the backdrop of a chic black lamp. A champagne and gold overlay was draped over a kelly green satin linen, all provided by Connie Duglin Linen. Gold chivari chairs from Signature Event Rentals were adorned by custom chivari chair toppers created by Simply & Forever Boutique, adding the perfect amount of style and sophistication. Combined with a custom bench cover made of a black and white floral print, the black and white seating completed the whole table.

Our stunning model wore a gorgeous gown provided by White Closet Co. and was all dolled up by Hope Henderson Artistry and Hair By Monique. She was accessorized with Stella & Dot jewelry, Bethany Lorelle hairpieces, and an adorably chic clutch from Oatmeal Lace Design. These bright colors and bold patterns are perfect for a stylish bride wanting a wedding that is a little different, yet still incredibly chic. And of course the details are what complete this whole eclectic chic look!

Ireland Boho Chic Wedding Ideas

It is a great day over here at The Wedding Chicks! We have more sugar-coated eye candy for you to swoon over from Brosnan Photographic.

The entire set up took place at The Fern Cafe restaurant in County Wicklow, Ireland. Designed by the lovely ladies at The Bridal Lounge in Dublin, the scene features mismatched chairs in faded pinks, blues and greens, crystal chandeliers tied with ribbons and the most amazing floor to ceiling french paned windows with views over lush country gardens. Read on to see how they set up this to-die-for wedding shoot.

To see all the details from this inspirational shoot click here

The initial inspiration came from the venue itself and from the eclectic range of vintage inspired and wildly colorful, chintzy wonders in the Avoca ranges (which we were allowed pilfer at will for the shoot – we were like kids in a candy shop bringing the concept to life!!) We mixed wooden bird houses, with elegant glassware, mismatched china and lots of coloured candle holders to create a ‘grown up’ tea-party feel, with the overall look being a ‘luxe-vintage-chic’. A miniature tree adorned with individual cards in a sparkling french vintage theme with the guests initials on the front, and table number on the back served as the escort table, and guests were welcomed with a vintage wooden notice board draped with jewels and pearls.

The cake table featured a wooden birdhouse to compliment the birds on the china plates, and assorted cake holders in simple white china – and again lots of colored glass candle holders to bring light and color – although nothing could take center stage quite like the amazing (and delicious) french fruit flan and tartlets!

The flowers couldn’t have been anything but wildflowers, and Deirdre from Ruby&Bloom used mixed heathers and dahlias with delicate wildflowers in vintage holders and birdcages that were flea market finds. The bride’s bouquet was a simple avalanche rose bouquet with lisianthus and freesia and bound with raffia and a luxurious smokey velvet bow to give an earthy yet luxe, boho feel.

The Bride wore a selection of dresses from White Orchid in Dublin complemented by beautiful hair and makeup by Aoife Callaghan Makeup Artist and Michelle Grimes. Michelle adorned Kamila’s hair with a beautiful silk flower corsage from Ban.do which worked so perfectly with the overall look.

Ireland and Chicago Wedding Photographer Brosnan Photographic is a proud sponsor and preferred Wedding Chicks vendor.

Reno, Nevada Handmade Wedding

Let’s start out our Monday right with a, seriously cute handmade wedding from Reno, Nevada Photographer Courtney Wilson Photography.

You are going to love all the details made with love from Cindy, the bride, who personalized her wedding with her passion for ‘from scratch’ creations and took DIY to a whole new level. The majority of the desserts and the favors are from scratch, as well as most of the decorations. Sit back relax and enjoy this handmade extravaganza and be sure to read Cindy’s blog, Hungry Girl Porvida. She has some tasty treats going on.

From Cindy, the bride on her homemade wedding adventure

With the help of my fabulous friends and family, I was able to do so much DIY! I really think that the hands-on aspect of this really made the day and all of the details that much more special. Most of the decor was hand-made, some was thrifted, and some things were items that we have in our home. We literally sewed yards and yards of fabric flags, not to mention the bow ties for all of the guys. Baking the desserts was really the only option for me, I not only felt like I had to but I really, really wanted to! Most of my family and friends know about my blog and many haven’t tried anything that I’ve made, so this was really a time for me to share with them. A lot of people told me that I would be overwhelmed by all the tasks I took on, and though it was a whirlwind of baking, crafting, canning, and sewing in the weeks and days before the wedding, I really wouldn’t have it any other way.

Texas Rustic Wedding

Texas weddings always seem to be filled with charm and good old fashioned elegance. Cassie and Sam’s rustic wedding is definitely not an exception. They chose a fantastic Texas venue filled with country flair and rustic charm, The Vista West Ranch.

They chose a romantic and classic color palette of soft pinks, whites and creams. To complement the country feel of the venue, Cassie incorporated rustic touches. The table numbers were brass house numbers placed in the centerpieces and flowers were arranged loosely in vintage glass vessels. Wendee from Lucie’s Events custom designed the distressed window frame “Guest Book” and hung it from one of the amazing trees on Vista West Ranch‘s property.

Shannon Cunningham Photography did an outstanding job of photographing this charming wedding.

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.

Tina is daunting a gorgeous Melissa Sweet wedding dress and the bridesmaid each add their own eclectic mix to their wedding look. All in all this wedding is filled with steal worthy eye candy.

Tina and David actually took their portraits before the ceremony. We love to hear the opinions of brides that have experienced this so that you can make the best decision for your special day. Below is what Tina had to say on her choice.

“We’re so glad we took all of our pictures before the wedding. It gave us more time to hang out with our guests and we were able to enjoy every part of our wedding. The day goes by so fast so that extra time with our family and friends was really special. ”

We are quite positive that there are going to be a few images here that you are going to steal some inspiration from. Tina and David wanted a vintage, country, shabby chic style wedding. Tina really like that shabby chic cottage look and Dave really wanted a rustic country style, so combine the two and you have a rustic shabby chic extravaganza.

Take note of all the incredible love and detail that went into this wedding. How tasty do the white chocolate pretzels look? Carrie Goff pretty much did an amazing job of coordinating this detail filled wedding.
