Black Tie Wedding Inspiration in our Favorite New Photography Style

Tuesday, September 20th, 2022

Old Hollywood style has a newer, fresher look in this black tie wedding inspiration held at The Range Wedding + Event Venue as captured by the talented A.W. Photography Inc. who worked alongside planner Blue Chalk Events to coordinate the details of this most eye-catching day. In wedding scenes of high contrast, floral runners designed by Gorgeous Blooms Floral Design awash in white petals are the perfect pair to stately black accents like modern velvet chairs, crisp linens, and even modern, matte black flatware from the very best – the collections of Mood Party Rentals and Marianne’s Rentals. A modern gown silhouette from Chantilly Bridal Studio is just what this bride needed to elevate her look into next wedding season, and its clean lines and elegant neckline only add to our adoration of this entire styled day.

 

Tucked Hollywood glam waves were simply the only way to syle her for this affair and Hayley Hall Hair totally understood the assignment. Her groom looked dapper as ever, donning a black suit and matching black tie from The Wardrobe Modern Menswear. The two exchanged opulent rings of the highest craftsmanship from BC Clark just before time to cut into a ruffled abstract wedding cake masterpiece created by Mishelle Handy Cakes and pour a luxurious champagne tower to accompany mobile bartending by Okie Soirée Mobile Bar Co. so that all your bases are covered and cups are filled. There isn’t a luxury this black tie wedding inspiration doesn’t take into consideration and we want to see more! Keep scrolling for the full photo gallery below. Cheers!

 

Check out the Pastel Bounce House in this Whimsical Wedding Inspiration

Monday, September 12th, 2022

This fun-filled whimsical wedding inspiration coordinated by Joy & Honey Events is the prettiest pastel dream we’ve laid eyes on in a while! Loaded with colors that could make any romance feel cheerful, bright and new, this styled shoot was decorated with all the chicest furniture from Party Pro Rents plus a stunning picnic scene that instantly stole our hearts.

 

To provide the party vibes, BOLD brought balloons installations that were simply poppin’, and fringe garland to trim the ceiling while a two-tiered cake designed by Sweet Devotion Cakery wrapped in a fondant bow tempted us for a slice! Both bride and groom were dressed to the nines for this perfect pastel affair, with her in a romantic lace gown from Chantilly that was secured at the shoulders with delicate tulle bows. To contrast yet keep with the lighter tones, he wore a pale grey suit from EVERYMAN while they enjoyed some fun time on a lavender bounce house from BA Bounce Houses.

Waterside Wedding Inspiration Held at Carlton Landing

Friday, September 2nd, 2022

It’s no issue that Oklahoma happens to be landlocked – this waterside wedding inspiration captured by Kelsey LaNae Photography proves you can still host a wedding that carries the beachy vibe of your dreams while staying close to home all around the lakeside property of Weddings at Carlton Landing.

 

In one scene down below, an altar of pale blue florals takes our breath away while in others, cheery pink blooming centerpieces are oh-so-fun to look at all thanks to Poppy Lane Design and their expertly crafted floral installations. Two distinctly beautiful sets of paperie designed by Eros Studios steal our hearts from the get-go, enveloping scripted save-the-dates in a luxurious, illustrated insert as well as covering a pretty pink invitation suite in delicate floral designs. Blending both vibes in outdoor reception seating creates a totally unique garden party-meets-Seaside, Florida feel thanks to décor from Party Pro Rents.

 

Bride and groom both look chic as can be, with our bride modeling a romantic, long-sleeved Monique Lhuillier gown from J.J. Kelly Bridal Salon, adorned with natural details and paired perfectly with effortless hair and makeup styled by Chelsey Ann Artistry. It has to be 10s across the board from us while looking through the full gallery from this waterside wedding inspiration. See more from this styled shoot down below!

Throughout both curated aesthetics, fresh flowers of a wild variety arranged by Kasse Duffy Designs swept us off our feet while both brides modeled impeccably fashionable ensembles. All came together so beautifully in this moody wedding inspiration that we’d never guess it was a styled shoot!

Modern Spring Wedding Inspiration in the Prettiest Pastel Shades

Monday, August 15th, 2022

We’re crushing hard on this whimsical spring wedding inspiration held at The Range Wedding + Event Venue where a burst of color perfectly accented this blank canvas wedding venue and its airy, white walls allowed for total creative freedom with this spring wedding inspiration’s color palette. All around, playful floral installations catch our eye, but we can’t help behold a tablescape awash in opulent garden party inspired details as well as even more delicate pastel floral design from The Flower Shop Pryor. Guests were invited to celebrate with beautifully hand-lettered envelopes and a stately matching invitation suite by Eros Studios accented with gold filigree. Upon arrival, could find their way to an assigned seat with the help of escort cards sealed to an ornate seating chart with a gold wax stamp.

Conveniently nestled between two stunning champagne walls was a towering five-tiered cake design from Sweet Devotion Cakery decorated with artful pastel features and looking every bit too good to eat! Beautiful bridal models in gowns of every style and silhouette posed around these inspired weddingscapes, each seeming to suit them oh-so-well. Our groom modeled just as much wedding fashion in a burnt orange suit and groom’s attire provided by EVERYMAN which complemented his bride’s feathery ensemble flawlessly. The two said “I do” in a ceremony scene so lovely you’d want to see it twice, so luckily Courtney Kibby Designs was on-site to create an intricate and elaborate painting right as it all happened to help remember the day by. Scroll on to see all our favorite details from this modern spring wedding inspiration for yourself and continue reading for a note from the venue owners about this perfect pastel day. Cheers!
