Celebrating Tradition Wedding Walkthrough with Lindsey Zamora Events

Traditions were intertwined throughout the celebration from the crowning and procession in front of a breathtaking gilded altar at the Orthodox ceremony to money being thrown in the air by the Kum as the couple exited the church to symbolize prosperity for the newlyweds. A Serbian band from Chicago kicked off the reception, while Serbian vocalist Angela Suboitc and famous singer Zoran Kalezic added to the evening’s unforgettable entertainment.

From the planner: “It’s my job as a designer to understand what my client wants, even when they may not. Together, we let the design evolve organically. Molly selected a color palette of sage, evergreen, ivories and navy. I then presented options and choices. From font color of invitations to the way the napkin is folded, I helped guide the design with the overall vision and mood in mind. This wedding had so many traditions, which made it super fun! Niki is Serbian, so think of ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ and that is basically what this wedding was!”

“When there are different cultures within a wedding, there is always a learning curve. It was so fun to learn as we went along this wedding journey. As we were learning traditions, we were booking important key vendors, while simultaneously working on and evolving the design.”

“The head table was a favorite — gold starburst chargers sat behind a jade runner with a lush garland. Antlers and sage ribbon were tucked strategically into place. Not only did the flowers create a wonderful aroma, but each guest received Juniper incense as their favor; adding another outdoorsy element.”

“I think it is so important as a creative to always push yourself, learn and grow. Did I know upon booking what all a Serbian wedding entailed? No, but we figured it out! Of course I did my research and consulted with the families on what was important to them and what traditions they wanted to incorporate. It’s fun to figure it out together, and more importantly, learn together!”

From the bride: “I’ve been told by many, many people it was the ‘wedding of the century,’ and the best wedding they’ve ever attended. It really was beautiful and the food was phenomenal… and the Serbian traditional chola dancing late into the night was so lively they even broke the dance floor!”

A case of the blues isn’t always a bad thing, as evident in this wedding inspiration from Shannon Rose Events featuring moody blues and edgy romance. A dark navy hue served as the base of the design, from the stationery by LaneLove Paper Co. to the tablescape adorned with dinnerware from Posh Couture Rentals. Texture play kept the monochromatic palette interesting, with a marble cake from Honeylove Cakery and the stunning whitewashed walls of Hickory Street Annex. Pops of dramatic black in the flowers by Something Pretty Floral and in the chairs from Coral Lane balanced the romantic, ethereal vibes in the bride’s gown from De Ma Fille and beauty by Grand Slam Glam – take a look at how the talented makeup artists took blue eye shadow to a new level! Gray Door Photography captured the whole scene with beautiful imagery, too. One thing’s for sure, this collection of moody blues gives us serious inspiration to work with a color we love and to be bold with it. Cheers to having the blues, in the best way!

From the planner, Shannon Ducker of Shannon Rose Events: “I was really inspired by the color blue for this shoot. I wanted to play with a monochromatic blue palette and let the color pop by using different textures and shades. By allowing the dark navy to be my primary color, it enabled all the other blue tones to stand out, while also making a bold statement. The florals had a romantic element, but the pops of the black florals added a little bit of edge to the overall design.”

With another runway season behind us, we’re heading into the end of the year already looking forward to what Fall 2019 has in store for brides-to-be! Cooler weather seasons allow for greater experimentation with texture, layers, silhouettes and even color palette, and designers certainly proved this to be true for next fall’s lineup of runway fashion. From heavy embellishments to new accessories, there’s something a little dazzling for every bride, no matter your style! Scroll on for a few of our standouts and be sure to check out our Instagram profile for more live-action photos straight from the shows under the “FASHION” highlight tab!

Feathery Frocks

From dainty sleeve embellishments to full-on feather skirts, this light and airy design staple made a mega return this season in every way imaginable. While some designers tread lightly, others dove head-first in embracing the trend by creating looks that capitalize on the fluid movement of feathers in motion, exampled in this one shoulder mini from Pronovias. Be on the lookout for the arrival of the new collection in Bridal Boutique, Lovely Bride, LuLu’s Bridal, Patsy’s Bridal Boutique, and Stanley Korshak.

Cinched with a Corset 

In a year filled with royal chatter, it’s to no surprise that nods to regality continue to inspire the design space in the bridal world. While high necks and long lace sleeves still made their mark for fall 2019, it’s the Victorian-era reminiscent corseted bodice that drew attention for its more versatile take on the trend. In the Watters show, nude underlay and a pearl embellished skirt gave the look a fresh, modern feel, perfect for the fashion-forward bride who appreciates a touch of tradition. Find the new collection in stores soon at Bridal Boutique and StarDust Celebrations.

Capes as the New Veil

While capes have become no stranger to the runways over the last few years, this season it was evident that they’re here to stay. In fact, a staggering number of designers favored showing looks that featured cape styles seemingly altogether replacing the need for a veil. Looks featuring attachments to the gown were neatly hidden on straps or even built-in similar to a hood to create multiple looks on one gown. Others paired the cape as an accessory. But regardless of the style, the one commonality was the trailing length behind each gown as if creating the look of a cathedral-length veil. Be sure to look for this fabulous Berta style and other cape looks from the Fall 2019 collection at Bridal Boutique.

Florals by 21 Parc Floral and Events and rentals from Posh Couture Rentals brought to life the incredible tablescape vision they’d dreamed of, photographed beautifully by Tracy Autem Photography, while decadent dishes from Wolfgang Puck Catering added the perfect mouthwatering touch to such an elegant affair. A cake from C. Marie’s Sweets, adorned in gold of course, rounded out the table vignette, set in a statement-making circular stand. The touches of gold didn’t stop there – the bride’s accessories, including the stunning hairpiece and belt, brought in even more golden hues and complemented an understated yet elegant off-the-shoulder gown from De Ma Fille and bold hair and makeup reminiscent of Old Hollywood by Lip Service Makeup.

We absolutely love seeing wedding inspiration from a completely unique perspective, and this wanderlust inspired styled shoot by Katie Frost Weddings was just that! Inspired by the colors and terrain of Big Sur in California, a love of travel and a love of dogs, of course, this bright and cheerful editorial gives us all the happy vibes and incorporates so many unique and personalized elements throughout. Illustrated Weddings by Lola Lorena blew us away with hand-drawn sketches and watercolor details on the invitation suite, which uses hues of dark blue and pops of yellow to set the tone for the rest of the scene so beautifully captured by Andrea Elizabeth Photography. A mountaintop-inspired altar from Coral Lane and copper tabletop accents from Posh Couture bring metallic elements into the aesthetic, while florals from Kate McLeod Studio both brighten and soften the look against the white backdrop of Firefly Gardens. A cake reminiscent of the sea and sky designed by The Butterfly Cake Factory sits atop suitcases in front of a hand-calligraphed sign reminding us adventure awaits! The model bride, in a boho gown by Lovely Bride with a matching boho braid and bold pout from Lip Service Makeup and diamond ring from The True Gem, is joyful to be with her groom, wherever life takes them. Cheers to wanderlust, adventure and love!

From the planner, Katie Frost of Katie Frost Weddings: “The inspiration behind this shoot was created for the wanderlust bride that loves bohemian vibes but equally loves the convenience of city living. Inspired by the terrain of Big Sur, I wanted to bring in coastal vibes with a mountainside twist.”
