We’ve been gushing over Dru and Brooks’ elegant Victorian-inspired wedding at Gaillardia Country Club ever since it arrived in our inbox. Dru chose a color palette of berry with hints of blush pink and heavy gold accents to start her planning which led to the garden-esque reception scene the country club transformed to below. The romantic scene was set thanks to decor from Marianne’s Rentals and Ruby’s Vintage Rentals, lighting from Innovative Event Solutions, music from Hook (arranged by Box Talent Agency) and a towering cake design by Mishelle Handy Cakes. The stunning bride entered wearing a flowing Maggie Sottero gown from Moliere Bridal with lovely hair and makeup by Malorie Avaline – Beauty Unveiled. Her bridesmaids complemented in berry Bill Levkoff gowns from Moliere as well. The guests were happy to attend after receiving luxe invites from Paper + More, prepping them for the enchanted evening that followed. Dru and Brooks departed the country club in a vintage car from King’s Limousine, and fireworks shot off as they drove away. See all the highlights, including an appearance by Rumble the Bison, in the video below from Pen Weddings. Cheers to the newlyweds!

Anything but White – Continuing with provision of non-traditional bridal wear options, playful splashes of color were spotted across collections in between the expected classic white. Gowns took on new hues this season, from a more classic soft blush to the unexpected powder and baby blues.

Stylish Toppers – A built-in bridal accessory adding the perfect amount of pizzazz, attached capes allow for a glammed up moment in the most un-fussy way. Whether dripping in crystal and bead embellishment or billowing behind in an airy tulle overlay, delicate capes serve as the perfect addition to wedding day looks this season.

Modest High Necks – This season brought neck lines in extremes, for both ultra-conservative and boldly daring looks. With the former, maximum coverage proved undeniably chic with high neck shapes. Raising the necklines and adding a bit more structure throughout the bodice for the turns up the drama!

Voluminous Sleeves – Nodding to a season of unique shapes, voluminous sleeves in varying textures were seen across many of the collections for Fall 2017. Isabelle Armstrong’s options decidedly packed the most punch in versions of billowing sheer embroidery featuring French cuffs and a full lace coverage option with delicate crystal and bead embroidery throughout the sleeve. These high drama elements in full shapes bring a classic feel to a modern look!

Goodness it can be tough to narrow down the infinite color choices to find perfect palette for your wedding celebration! While there are so many trending hues this season, it’s impossible to miss the many bridal parties rocking deep plum bridesmaid dresses! We love the idea of starting with your girls’ attire as your base hue and working from there to complete your day’s decor. Take a peek at each of these weddings below to see what colors the brides paired this trending hue with, along with their coordinating wedding styles and venues. Happy planning!

Ryan and Rebekah wanted to do something different for their engagement shoot and choose to have a relaxed lifestyle engagement shoot with Kelbert McFarland Photography. Captured in black and white film, you’ll see this darling couple cozied up on their couch reading, drinking coffee and held in such sweet embraces. “The idea was to break out of the mold of only doing the dressed up and walking through the field engagement shoot,” says Kelbert, “Life sometimes is nice and relaxed at home. I think we captured that feeling well.” We would definitely agree! You can easily tell this couple was as ease in their own environment and feel the love their home holds. Enjoy this creative engagement shoot and happy Friday!
