Just as we’ve been craving a bit more sun and outdoor weather comes this gorgeous new editorial from our Spring/Summer 2018 issue chock-full of elegant al fresco wedding inspiration from Cloud Creative Events! With Dove Ridge Vineyard as the backdrop, Rachel Elaine Photography captured the setting in the golden glow of late afternoon. The team brought a touch of moody sophistication through the use of deep jewel tones in everything from the table centerpieces to the plum and merlot hued paper suite from Brown Fox Creative. Matching the crest of the invitations, Flourish Floral Design Studio crafted a dreamy bouquet and similar centerpiece filled with blooms of dusty rose, merlot, plum and ivory. The swoon-worthy table setting was anchored by elements of whimsy mixed with contemporary decor. Beautiful Event Rentals provided plush, sand-colored end chairs with ghost chairs to accompany, along with the large birch colored wood table. Lace-edged chargers were topped with powdery blue ceramic plates, and gold flatware and rimmed glasses all from Posh Couture Rentals brought a touch of vintage elegance to the setting. The soft blue hue was again incorporated into the embellishment of the sleek cake designed by Loft22 Studios. We can just picture the model bride delighting in the beauty of her outdoor wedding, wearing her cold-shoulder lace gown from De Ma Fille with soft, windblown waves tousled by WZ Beauty Studio. We truly can’t get enough of this gorgeous editorial! Enjoy!

From the planner: “For this shoot, I was inspired by deep jewel tones and wanted to capture that richness in the floral design through the use of big, bold-hued blooms and organic, lush arrangements. Mixing modern plates, flatware and calligraphy with lush, organic florals creates a unique and beautiful look for a tabletop.”

Just in time for all things love, romance, feminine and sweet, we’re so thrilled to share this bright pink modern barn inspiration from Events by Jade! We couldn’t think of a better time than Valentine’s Day week to share this styled shoot jam-packed with the hot, bold hue paired back by the serene simplicity of The Nest at Ruth Farms. Expertly captured by Rachel Elaine Photography, bright, natural light brought the perfect well-lit wash to the photos taken at the white wood barn. The model bride’s look was soft and romantic compared to the boldness of the decor and table display, wearing an airy tulle gown in a powdery blush pink from De Ma Fille. Her beauty look was kept just as sweet with loosely pinned back waves and peachy-pink makeup, from lids to cheeks! Drawing your eye immediately to the bold table display, Coral Lane provided unexpectedly complementary and unique pieces, like ghost chairs sitting atop a fuchsia Persian rug. Hot pink linens lined the table and sat at each place, set with gold flatware and crystal glasses. Out of the Garden crafted a giant centerpiece and bouquet of a variety of roses and bud flowers in a range of pinks that perfectly suited the setting. Unique place cards, along with an entire paper suite in watercolor pink and wispy calligraphy writing from LaneLove Paper Co. added an extra hint of softness to the setting. To top everything off, we just can’t get enough of the simple white iced cake from Creme de la Creme Cake Company, topped with macarons to serve as embellishment and an additional sweet bite! Cheers to love and this festive shoot!

From the planner: “I wanted to create a Valentine’s Day shoot that was romantic and lovely, yet fun and whimsical. My goal was to make it a wedding inspirational shoot that someone who was getting married on Valentine’s Day would enjoy. I loved all of the small details with the cherries – they were a perfect addition. I hope you enjoy this shoot as much as we do.”
