Elegant Heirloom Farmhouse Wedding
Holly and Jacob chose the beautiful Grandeur House for their fall wedding and the all-white farmhouse was the perfect backdrop to highlight all of the personal details they chose for their event. Dusty blue tablescapes were warmed by centerpieces from A Pocket Full of Posies in hues of rust, burgundy, and orange, reflecting the fall foliage outside, and Holly’s mother used stained glass from churches hit by Hurricane Katrina to make beautiful glass flowers for the tables. Small magnolia and Japanese red maple trees were even placed in the space for the evening but then brought to the couple’s home to be planted as a memory of their big day! They did an amazing job incorporating family heirlooms into their celebration while also creating new heirlooms and Jessica Brown Photography captured each of those details perfectly!

Iconic San Francisco Garden Wedding
Patrice and Nick met in one of the most unique ways we’ve heard of: the pair were production assistants on former TV sitcom “The New Adventures of Old Christine”. They started out as friends and their relationship bloomed from there, ultimately with an inventive engagement proposal that involved Patrice’s boss (read more below about that fun tale). They wanted a wedding that drew in their love for California, Patrice’s Filipino heritage, and an overwhelming elegance and thoughtfulness. Sabine Scherer Photography captured their wedding, from the stunning ceremony at Patrice’s family church, St. Dominic Catholic Church to their Bently Reserve reception. Their reception venue is hailed for its opulence, so to add balance, Mango Muse Events and Violetta Flowers pulled in live trees, organic asymmetrical elements and garlands, and added meaningful orchids and roses (as an homage to family that had passed on). Of course, fun had to be had, so to kick off their reception, the newlyweds partnered up to do a medley dance that ended with hip hop. We love all of the injections of Patrice and Nick’s fun personalities and fascinating lives all throughout their big day.
Springtime in France Wedding Inspiration
This gorgeous shoot from Sara Reynolds Events is inspired by the hope, the anticipation, and the subtle calm of spring’s beauty. Stacy Bowen Floral Design worked with florals that are cheery and fresh without being overwhelmingly bold, mirroring the feel of everything abloom at Baltimore’s stunning Cylburn Arboretum. The architecture of the venue and elegant calligraphy by Shotgunning For Loveletters brought charm and refinement to the shoot, while the fresh and colorful blooms of the arboretum grounds kept it from feeling too fussy. There are so many soft and beautiful details in this shoot by Ashley Boyan Photography!
Classic Soft White Wedding Inspiration
Hands down, an all-white wedding is the utter classic wedding palette. It will go down in wedding inspiration history as one of our favorites here on EAD. As simple as it is, a white color scheme can make a wedding feel so luxurious and elegant and the varieties are endless. In this captivating Flora Bloom Photography editorial at the bright white Venue 1902, Pearl White Events (how perfect) opted for a soft, creamy white and ran amok with it. The venue is painted in a stark white, so gingerly toning the room down with ivory linen-clad tables dotted with blush and gold details and foliage was an exquisite idea. Punctuating it with a cleanly-done ceremony section with heaps of green space and a brick-lined lounge area makes this styled shoot chic, modern, and timeless to boot.
Organic + Timeless New Jersey Wedding
Janine and Mike chose Woodbridge Township’s stunning Ariana’s Grand for their reception venue, and the venue was perfect for their clean and ethereal wedding vision! To keep their wedding timeless, Flowers by Bernard filled their reception with swaths of greenery and mixed metals, accented by succulents and acrylic elements for a modern touch. Janine’s late grandmother was named Rosalie, and they honored her by sprinkling roses throughout the arrangements.

After the traditional ceremony at Saint Joseph Cathedral, guests made their way to The Country Club at Muirfield VillageÂ where they were wowed by the event design and planning byÂ MMJ Weddings & Events. There, pops of deep blueâ€”reminiscent of the color of Perrine’s Badgley Mischka shoesâ€”joined more pink, white, and silver details to transform the reception hall into a beautiful backdrop for dinner and dancing. One of our favorite details is the bride, groom, and dog topper perched above the cupcakes from Nicely Made Cupcakes. We’re madly in love with these images from Jen & Jonah!

Blush Colored Wedding in the Temecula Desert
Let’s all take a moment (or two) out of our day to check out this bliss-inducing Janita Mestre wedding. It’s delightfully in the desert, so of course you’re going to spot a few cacti at Galway Downs, but you’re going to see such a dreamy color palette too. Being so close to Valentine’s Day, Stephanie and Alex wanted to evoke love all throughout, so they picked pink as their go-to hue. Big and bright blush and ivory florals by Events by Floral Sensations complemented the eye-catching David’s Bridal mauve bridesmaids’ dresses, and we loved this idea, too. Instead of continuing the soft tones everywhere, shake up the colors like Stephanie and Alex and throw a deep hue in the same color family somewhere that will be seen. Adding it to the bridesmaids’ dresses was a clever touch without overwhelming the couple’s desire to have an airy feel to their wedding day.
Romantic Estate Wedding Inspiration
Though the setting may be in Southern California, the Villa Del Sol D’Oro transports us to Tuscany with its romantic European estate feel. Sweetest Love Events designed an elegant outdoor soiree with a beautiful mix of vintage elements and muted tones.

The stylish couple embraced the glamour with a sophisticated pale dove gray Willowby by Watters gown from Mary Me Bridal and classic tuxedo from The Black Tux . We are completely smitten with this dreamy wedding shoot photographed by Devon Donnahoo Photography!
Chic San Francisco Cafe Wedding
We are head over heels for Lauren and Taylor’s chic blue-and-white San Francisco wedding! Lauren, a wedding planner herself, immediately began pulling together ideas after Taylor’s proposal, so thatâ€”with the help of Ryder Sloan Eventsâ€”they could have an outdoor affair to remember. She started with the location, Stable Cafe. The urban garden space was a great backdrop for a collection of blue-and-white ginger jars filled with florals from Mandolin Flowers.Â Plumosa fern garlands and cafe lights added an air of sophistication, while classic arrangements of hydrangeas, anemones, and roses accented tables covered with Swiss dot linens from La Tavola. Lauren wore her cousin’s couture Carolina Herrera Bridal gown with embellished blue Manolo Blahnik heels, a Christmas gift from Taylor; her bouquetÂ was wrapped with long pieces of vintage laceÂ and blue velvet ribbon.Â Amy Nichols Special Events ensured the day ran smoothly from start to finish, which included transforming the courtyard after the ceremony into a luxe space for dinner and dancing, along with lounging areas outfitted with seating from One True Love Vintage Rentals. Later in the evening, guests sipped warm spiked cocktails from the DIY coffee bar, the perfect accompaniment to aÂ salted caramel wedding cake from Cake Coquetteâ€”the design of the dessert mimicked the ginger jar pattern. We are just in total love with all of these fabulous images from Julie Mikos!
Sophisticated San Francisco Wedding
We’re crushing pretty hard on Jennifer and Matt’s breathtaking San Francisco wedding in all its sleek black and white glory!

The black, ivory, and gold reception at The Olympic Club featured all white florals from Asiel Design, including centerpieces of cascading white orchids that are simply stunning. We love the personal touch of hand-carved shorebirds on the tables, done by Jennifer’s decoy carver father.Â A dessert table with confections from SusieCakes lent an air of fun to this sophisticated affair. These images from Milou + Olin Photography are just flawless. Don’t miss a single detail!
Pretty Pasadena Wedding
We adore the elegant Pasadena wedding of Sarah and Ron! These images from Stewart Uy are like a fairytale, with frothy pinks and lots of ethereal tulle. Sarah wore a custom gown from Kara Wedding for the ceremony at Glendale Presbyterian Church and reception at the stunning Imperial Palace Banquet Hall. We’re loving the unique mix ofÂ blush peonies, black anemones and white ranunculus in Sarah’s bouquet by Dana of Karen’s Garden. Two of our fave details are the romantic taupe bridesmaids dresses and the garden of blooms surrounding the cake from Queen’s Bakery. Simply gorgeous! When asked about her favorite memory of the day, Sarah shares, “I love the last few shots taken of us dancing. It was the perfect ending to such a beautiful,Â crazy day.” We couldn’t agree more with her sentiment!
Lush Gold + Coral Winery Wedding
“We knew that we wanted an intimate setting that was surrounded by lush greenery, and we fell in love with the beautiful Firestone Vineyard in Los Olivos, California,” says bride Amy. We’re in love, too, with every lush and gorgeous detail of Amy and Brett’s wedding, especially the peonies! “The flowers were some of most beautiful floral arrangements I have seen! “WeÂ were absolutely blown away by the work that Green Leaf Designs did,” says Amy. Fluffy bouquets and table centerpieces included peonies, garden roses, gardenias, andÂ hydrangeas in shades of coral, peach, pink, and ivory. Also draped with gorgeous florals was the couple’s ceremony arch, beneath which Amy stood wearing a classic strapless gown and lace-edged veil. Coral bridesmaids dresses continued the color palette. We adore the whimsical details of the pink-and-blue trellis-print ceremony programs by Ree Jae Chi. Taking family duties far beyond the expected, Amy’s sister, a wedding planner at CCL Weddings & Events, engineered nearly every element of the big day herself. Enjoy these exquisite images from Christine Farah Photography!

Alexa and Virgil fell in love with the Tuscan style of Villa del Sol d’Oro in Sierra Madre, California, which was the charming backdrop of their romantic outdoor wedding.

Alexa’s stunning Saison Blanche Couture gown from Mary Me Bridal is slightly modern, with a shirred tulle skirt that is simply divine! Alexa and Virgil remember the entire affair as the perfect day. “The atmosphere was phenomenal!” says the bride. “Everything went so smoothly that day, we were fully enjoying our wedding and soaking in very happy moment.” We are head over heels for these gorgeous images from Diana Marie Photography!
Rustic California Garden Wedding
Cheyenne and John’s lovely wedding at The Outdoor Art Club in Mill Valley, California, is an earthy but elegant interpretation of the local scenery, with garden florals by Studio Choo and a ceremony beneath a canopy of lush green trees. Continuing with the bohemian spirit of the day, Cheyenne’s matron of honor and solo bridesmaid chose their own dresses from J.Crew and Free People, while Cheyenne stunned in a column-style lace gown from Atelier des Modistes. We love the green garland details on Cheyenne and John’s stationery from Painted Tongue Studios and menu cards from Fairmount Creates, which ties in with the rustic look of the venue. Events by Satra helped the couple coordinate the day, ensuring that every detail was perfect. Organic touches like seed packet favors and loose arrangements in gold and green reinforced the laid-back elegance of the affair, creating a cozy ambience. We are loving every single image from Matthias Photography!
