The luxurious The St. Regis Dubai was the inspiration for this stunning styled editorial from Olga Che ofÂ Save the Date. Selecting a color palette of taupe, ivory, and brass to echo the hotel’s grand staircase and silk-embellished walls, Olga worked with Firenze Florals to create a tablescape with an opulent, elegant feel. Blown glass chargers, a sea of taper candles in a mix of neutral and metallic colors, and a mix of low and high centerpieces with areca palm leaves graced the table, each place setting fitted with a gold palm leaf detail, a nod to the locale. The overall effect is glamorous yet understated, as are the bridal looks styled by MHG Beauty featuring both a classic ballgown and a crystal beaded mermaid gown from Vanila Wedding Boutique. The entire scene is the height of sophistication, and beautifully captured by Enchante Studio!

Elegant Socially Distant Wedding Inspiration
Today’s wedding inspiration comes from the idea that downsizing your guest list and implementing social distancing measures into your big day does not mean that you have to downsize your vision! Magnolia Celebrates shows us ways to elevate your wedding style, such as using smaller, more intimate tables and creating unique tablescapes or place settings for each, using stately plate covers for a plated meal, or displaying a faux wedding cake throughout the event. The team behind today’s post was inspired by the old Spanish architecture of the venue. They incorporated shades of mauve, brick, cappuccino, and sage into the tablescapes, each table getting a unique set of linens and gorgeous florals by Flowers By Yona. So many wonderful ideas from this shoot and these photos by Caroline Willett are sure to give you lots of ideas for your own wedding, whether it will be in the time of social distancing or not!
French Garden Inspiration in Washington
A backdrop of verdant green climbing ivy and dreamy painterly florals would play a muse for any impressionist artist, so it’s no wonder that Indigo Event Design chose the stunning gardens and chateau of Monet Vineyards for this Claude Monet-inspired shoot. BLUE Floral Company created a pastel rainbow of locally-sourced florals to paint the outdoor ceremony space and stunning bouquet that is worthy of Monet’s brush itself. Lush centerpieces of coral and butter yellow peonies, lavender scabiosa, and dusty blush roses sit atop a french blue table, with just the right touch of regal elegance from gold flatware and chargers. Romantic and intimate, these photos by RTFaith Photography prove that even a micro-wedding can be a fairytale wedding too!
Modern Organic Elegance Wedding Inspiration
While the color palette of a fall wedding is often full of bold shades, this neutral and natural inspiration from the lens of The Simmons Photography really caught our eye. Julia and her equally-impressive team of fellow wedding vendors took a brief departure away from the tried-and-true jewel tones and went stark white and toned down for fall. Layers of cream and ivory enhanced the pristine white room and hints of dried florals from Evergreen Flower Co. provided just the right amount of color. This color palette and design would work beautifully throughout all seasons of the year, especially if you incorporated a lively background like a sage green wall! It’s a great pop of color and you know us: we’re all for stand-out details.
Elegant Hunter Green Wedding Inspiration
Any way you spin the color green in a wedding palette, it is quite the versatile shade. From soft pastels like mint or sage to deep hues like the beautiful emerald or hunter green, you can easily use this earthy color at any wedding during any time of the year if you fancy it. It’s so timeless and we’re glad that wedding extraordinaires like Olive Fine Weddings & Events and Alexandra Lee ran on the same wavelength as us. This styled shoot has a hefty helping of green all over it, and if you take out the seemingly wintry elements to this inspo, you can readily use it all throughout the year. The luxe blooms by Willrett Flower Co. (check out the installation framing the sweetheart table!) may need some tweaking when it comes to what’s in season and what’s in your area, but no matter if you’re a spring or summer bride-to-be eyeing this shade of green, you’ll certainly get the same gorgeous effect that Alexandra snapped for us.
Elegant Classical Seattle Wedding Inspiration
Seattle’s gorgeous historical Rainer Chapter House was modeled after George Washington’s Mt. Vernon home in Virginia. It contains a multitude of antique furniture and framed portraits that have the effect of bringing you back in time to the late 18th century, and this shoot photographed by Audrey Norman Photography effortlessly blended the classical venue with current trends. A neutral color palette of champagne, ivory, blush, and gold melded with the ornate interior, and pops of texture created a soft feel, especially when paired with romantic candlelight on the elegant tabletop with a ruched cheesecloth runner. Botanique Flowers styled a warm and inviting centerpiece with warm peach and sage tones, and The Sweet Side designed a cake with square tiers embellished with ivory flowers inspired by the Pronovias gown from Labelle Salon. Every sophisticated detail in the design by Pacific Engagements beautifully mixes classic and contemporary – we are completely smitten!
Light and Airy Romantic Bridal Inspiration
I’d love to close my eyes and transport myself to a world where everything around me was as beautiful as this magical bridal inspiration captured byÂ The Jacksons Photography. Taking inspiration from the gilded accents in the ballroom atÂ The Westin Columbus, Leda ofÂ Events Held DearÂ wanted to play with movement and texture, and mixed pieces of glass, wood, linen, silk, and crystal in her design.Â From flowing silk fabrics to shimmering taper candles and cozy rugs, each detail was thoughtfully created to evoke a romantic and ethereal feel.Â Evergreen Flower Co.Â created arrangements of blush garden roses and greenery with an organic shape, so that the entire finished tabletop looks like one intricately designed centerpiece. The pop of deep blue taper candles was the perfect finishing touch! Each moment from the way theÂ Anna CampbellÂ gown floats across the ballroom floor to the smoke from the tapers as it envelops the table is absolute magic!

Elegance and romance were the theme of the day for Kara and Lance’s winter black tie wedding at Tampa’sÂ The Vinoy Renaissance. The couple were married on a gorgeous Florida day atÂ Sacred Heart Catholic Church, one of the most stunning cathedrals in the area. After their traditional ceremony, guests moved to the Vinoy’s Mezzanine for cocktails overlooking the water and a reception in the grand ballroom where amber uplighting created a magical display in the stately hall.Â Events in BloomÂ created centerpieces in neutral tones of ivory and soft peach with roses, peonies, ranunculus, and stock. Kara and Lance opted for a sweetheart table, and it was a true centerpiece of the reception, with glimmering sequin linens and an elegant garland centerpiece of roses and eucalyptus.Â A sophisticated palette of warm metallics carried throughout, from beadedÂ Adrianna PapellÂ bridesmaids dresses to champagne bottle place card holders. Of course, it’s the personal touchesÂ that make a wedding special. Guests signed wine corks in lieu of a guest book, and Lanceâ€”a baseball playerâ€”wore Batman cleats in his Major League debut, and donned a special gift from Kara, monogrammed Batman cuff links. We are absolutely smitten with every detail, from Kara’s laceÂ Girl with a Serious DreamÂ dressing robe to the sparkler exit and vintage Rolls Royce. Prepare to fall in love with every beautiful image captured byÂ Justin DeMutiis Photography!

Together with the ladiesÂ fromÂ Estera Events, we set out to create an event that would showcase all of the things thatÂ Aisle SocietyÂ represents: fun, friendship, community, and of course, utterly beautiful wedding inspiration! Dramatic draping from Drape KingsÂ was the centerpiece of the room, swathed along the ceiling and leading to a ceremony altar flanked by simple but show-stopping eucalyptus arrangements fromÂ Fleur. In the rest of the details, we bathed the whitewashed space in color! Our gorgeous ladies donned frocks fromÂ Bella Bridesmaids and Davidâ€™s BridalÂ in shades from blush to dusty blue and flowingÂ Truvelle and Sarah SevenÂ bridal gowns, carrying bouquets of vibrant summer blooms. TheÂ modern but elegantÂ tabletop featuresÂ glimmering sequin linens and rose gold chargers and amazing confetti popper menus fromÂ Sarah Drake Design.

Today’s ethereal winter wedding inspiration fromÂ Leighanne HerrÂ is so delicate and lovely, it almost feels as if it descended from a cloud. Working with Sarah ofÂ Blomes Paperie, Leighanne drew inspiration from a clear winter’s day, with angelic touches. A neutral color palette allowed for swaths of lush greenery to take center stage, with painterly centerpieces of pampas grass and the palest of blooms created byÂ Blush and Vine. Sarah designed a backdrop of hanging feathers with gilding, its sparkle only matched by the gorgeous ring byÂ Susie Saltzman! We are utterly enchanted by every beautiful image fromÂ Leighanne Herr!

Be still our hearts. Sara Cangueiro fromÂ Hoje Ã© especialÂ designed this ethereal inspiration shoot around the theme “Love is the salt of life”. Her vision of a timeless and romantic wedding was brought to life with a neutral color palette and a stunning setting. Seixas do Minho, Portugal’sÂ Villa IdalinaÂ has an almost other-worldly feel, its stately ceilings and paneled walls in the most perfectÂ shade of blue and gold. The gorgeousÂ florals byÂ Hoje Ã© especialÂ added a romantic touch to the intimate table setting for two. Janine is resplendent in a Jesus Peiro PortoÂ gown and gold jewelry from Jewellery for Al, with tousled waves byÂ Pedro FerreiraÂ and soft makeup by Makeup By BÃ¡rbara BrandÃ£o. A simple cake with sugar laurel leaves fromÂ Peace of CakeÂ is delicately placed on a wood console, and taper candles alight the room. We are utterly in love with each frame fromÂ Momento Cativo!
Elegant Chicago Wedding at the Drake Hotel
Jessica and Ben’s wedding is quintessentially Chicago. A ceremony at Rush Street’s St. James Chapel gave way to the reception at the Windy City’s iconic Drake Hotel. The Drake’s stunning ballroom doesn’t need much dressing up to be gorgeous, and we love how the couple enhanced the beauty of the room with a color palette of ivory, gold, and a touch of spring green. Florist Anthony Gowder created a mix of low and high arrangements with lush peonies, ranunculus, roses, hydrangea, vibernum, lilies, and blooming branches of spirea. The finishing touch? A classic white wedding cake with gold leaf from Amy Beck Cake Design with a hidden surpriseâ€”confetti cake inside! Jessica’s inspiration was simple, timeless elegance, and we couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Enjoy all of the lovely images from the equally-lovely Emilia Jane Photography!
Timeless + Elegant New Orleans Wedding
We are just loving these images of Ashley and Michael’s New Orleans wedding! The historic feel of the city blended with modern touches and classic details is the perfect combination for a stunning affair! We’re amazed at the breathtaking architecture ofÂ St. Louis Cathedral, site of the ceremony, as well as the timeless setting ofÂ The Roosevelt New Orleans, where the reception was held. “I wanted a classic and romantic feel for the ceremony and reception,” says Ashley. “My vision was lots of creams and whites inÂ the furniture and flowers with lots of candles and mirrored accents. Our florist, Bahara ofÂ Plants N’ Petals, did an absolutely amazingÂ job bringing our vision to life!” Sophisticated black bridesmaids dresses fromÂ LulaKateÂ are dramatic, especially beside Ashley’s dazzlingÂ RiviniÂ gown with a dramatic scalloped skirt! We just can’t get enough of the bridal party’s amazing ensemble! We love the glam accents at the reception, too, from crystal candelabras to a swiss dot cake byÂ The Roosevelt New OrleansÂ and the bride and groom’s classic NOLA ending: a second line with umbrellas! Enjoy these gorgeous images fromÂ Greer G Photography!
Elegant Canadian Vineyard Wedding
“I planned my own wedding, as a seasoned wedding planner for Legacy Events and Media, and I loved being very hands on,” says Lara of her wedding to Graham at La Stella, a vineyard in British Columbia. Lara and Graham wanted an elegantÂ yet simple celebration with an Italian estate feel. Using chandeliers, candles, and simple but beautiful blooms by Arlene Fenrich of Edgy Petals, they achieved the perfect romantic look. We love the classic gold flourishes on stationery from Love by Phoebe and lace linens from Upright Decor Rentals + Event Design! Lavender-gray BCBG bridesmaids dresses are trendy but still elegant, especially next to Lara’s breathtaking Enzoani gown from Bisou Bridal. We just love the simple, stunning details in these images from Melissa GidneyÂ andÂ Blush Wedding Photography!
Ivory + Gold Ballroom Wedding
Emily and Danâ€™s Columbus, Ohio, wedding is impossibly classic and sophisticated, with a dreamy palette of ivory, blush, and gold and dramatic pops of navy. The gorgeous St. Maryâ€™s Catholic Church was host to the catholic ceremony, and the ethereal colors continued at the reception, held in the breathtakingly gorgeous The Westin Columbus. Marble floors and gold details created a fairytale space for Emily and Dan; Emily looked like a princess in a CB Couture lace gown, accented by a stunning vintage veil from Veraâ€™s House of Bridals! Bridesmaids wore long navy dresses byÂ Joielle, but their flowers, like the others, were held to the neutral palette. Flowers on Springtree Lane translated Emilyâ€™s vision so that the blooms accented rather than competed with the surroundings. Textured roses on linens by Urquid Linen and the cake by The End Dessert Company were in keeping with the intricate detailing of the dÃ©cor. We are simply in love with these swoon-worthy images from Two Maries!
