Alchemy Inspired Wedding Editorial

Wedding Design

Here’s an absolutely inspiring wedding styled shoot with a botanical, ethereal feel. With its clean and modern palette of creamy whites and various shades of soft green, Julie Paisley Photography captured the natural styling of Cedarwood Weddings‘ alchemy-themed wedding shoot. Adding geodes and quartz to wedding tablescapes and other decor elements are a hot wedding trend right now, and we love how the white quartz is perched as a cake topper. Our eyes are loving those tulips, but we’re so smitten over the foliage and the greenery, especially as they snake out in the terrariums. Such a fun concept!

From the event designer, Cedarwood Weddings: Our Alchemy wedding inspiration uses natural elements like quartz crystals, minerals, and light to elevate event design to an ethereal expression of love. Styling is subtle, a delicate balance of earth and fire. Hues of pale green and mint floral and décor – including hand blown glass terrariums encasing mysteriously exotic air plants – are elegantly natural. Candlelight warms and reflects the neutral reception setting, as sunlight illuminates our gorgeous bride’s golden hour photo session with Julie Paisley.

Vellum invitations and paper goods continue the touch of lightness in design. Elements are carefully curated to represent the connection between heaven and earth, including rock candy decorated cocktails and cake, and an altar of branches grounding a suspended installation of candles and air plants. Guests participate in the mystery with unopened crystal geode favors. Carol Hannah’s AZURITE gown, which “celebrates feminine strength and mystery”, is stunning both in the color and luxurious use of fine flowing fabrics that gracefully drape our bride as she frolics in the estate meadow. Carol Hannah’s Dew Headpiece is a fine embellishment of glass beading and brass wire that is flexible enough to use in any hairstyle.

Spring Crossroads Estate Wedding

Elegant Weddings

Photos by:

Brooke Borough

Lizzie and Paul’s wedding is one of the most darling things we’ve seen today, and Brooke Borough captured all of it in its glory. This California fête in the springtime by Jill & Co Events is radiating in its whimsical flashes of pink with Anna le Pley Taylor‘s floral goodness ranging from the bride’s dainty bouquet to those creations lining the ceremony aisle. One thing we have to comment on: vintage barns can rock ceiling draping like no other.

From the event coordinator, Jill & Co Events: Lizzie & Paul tied the knot at a beautiful estate in Los Olivos, CA – Crossroads Estate, a Foley Family Wines property. Mid spring they said their “I Do’s” underneath an old oak tree at the base of rolling hills surrounded by 250 of their loved ones. The bride and her mother were meticulous with design details and strove to truly bring the outdoors into the vintage barn. Soft drapery on the poles of the barn with garlands flowing up and down drapes truly brought this outdoor feel alive.

The strewn market lights and chandelier over the dance floor softened up the barn and gave it elements of warm dimension. A trio played during cocktail hour al fresco, where guests gave heart felt speeches to the newlyweds. This couple chose a different direction than your typical sit down dinner, and offered numerous delicious food stations in a cocktail style meal, with guests mingling about, offering a unique guest experience. The night fluidly continued into hours of dancing with an incredible live band, compliments of the best friend of the groom and lead musician. Lizzie & Paul capped the night off with a bottle of champagne and jumped into a romantic vintage car before speeding off to their honeymoon and life as husband and wife!

Colorful Bohemian German Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

An outdoor boho chic wedding doesn’t always have to be in an earthy setting as Sarah and Martin’s vibrant Germany wedding proves. Expertly photographed by Ashley Ludaescher Photography, hosting a bohemian-style fête on the grounds of an impressive estate like this one in the equally-impressive German countryside is just as perfect! Choosing a palette with moody reds as the foundation, Love Circus transformed Sarah and Martin’s wedding venue into a hip location with the right amount of elegance from Ulrike Buchheim‘s floral designs. All of the different elements and trends harmonizing so well together has us gleaming with delight!

From the photographer, Ashley Ludaescher Photography: This wedding beautifully styled by Love Circus, was so much fun to photograph. With a bohemian garden theme, guests enjoyed the beautiful summer weather in Northern Germany on the stunning grounds of Schloss Herzfelde. Guests escaped the city and spent the weekend celebrating Sarah & Martin tying the knot after a decade together. From the flower crown station for the guests to create their own flower crowns, to the bride’s gorgeous Mira Zwillinger dress, the weekend was filled with beautiful touches and details. Sarah works in fashion and her dress purchased from Brown’s Bride in London fit her perfectly and matched the relaxed sophisticated vibe of the wedding weekend.

Mixing and matching wedding style ideas can be nerve-wracking, especially if the two or more ideas are complete polar opposites of one another. Opt for having luscious florals if you’re seeking out an elegant wedding and toss your more modern ideas in during cocktail hour, as seen here in Sarah and Martin’s fun and bohemian wedding lounge area. A huge tip for pulling the ideas off: be sure to keep the color choices consistent throughout your big day!

As a graphic designer, I believe that great graphic design is in the details {read: spending lots of time at the computer looking at pixels.} If you dont know what a pixel is- congratulations- because that’s why graphic designer types exist! {to save your eyesight} Really, though-design is more than matching colors and picking pretty fonts {but I do have major love for fonts} – it’s about conveying your message to the world with a swirl, a flourish, a dot, a pattern- whatever it takes to creatively encompass your clients vision and send that vision out into the world with impact.

That’s what I try to do. EMPHASIS on TRY. I adore designing and am currently the owner of NOTEDOCCASIONS.COM , an online site catering to everyone who loves having a party. And who doesn’t because as I see it, life’s a party!

Custom invitation design requests are always welcome – we welcome the opportunity to make your event absolutely perfect!
