Purple and Gold Traditional Wedding in New Jersey

Today, we are swooning over this traditional wedding theme with pops of purple and gold. Laszlo & Joel’s vision for their wedding was all about being elegant and fabulous. These two were married in a stunning old church, and were walked down the aisle by their adorable niece and nephew.

Their fun reception party was held at Rutgers University, where a dining hall was transformed into a spectacular space with an incredible international feast, including traditional Hungarian fare, a whole roasted pig, and paella. We are especially loving the black and gold wedding invitations they picked for their big day. The splash of gold perfectly accompanies the purple accents throughout their luxurious wedding theme.

Colorful Outdoor Wedding with a 50s Theme

Today, this colorful 50s themed wedding is rocking our world! From the polka dot dresses to catching a ride on the zoo carousel, this entire wedding day was filled with so much character. This is also the perfect inspiration for a Kate Spade wedding theme. We love all of the vibrant colors paired with classic black and white tones.

How Did the Proposal Happen?

It was a random Monday night, when Jeff called Joy into the kitchen to see a trick he had taught the dogs. Jeff asked her to hold 3 dog treats in her hand, and shut her eyes.

Joy was secretly hoping he had somehow taught Mike to stand on Louis’ back, the way that goats can sometimes be stacked, one up on top of the other. However, that is not the trick that Jeff had up his sleeve. After a few minutes, Joy looked down to find that each dog was sitting in front of her with a small cardboard sign hung around their neck. The signs read, “Will”, “You”, “Marry”….and then there was Jeff, down on one knee, holding a sign that read, “Me?” Joy said “Yes!” followed by, “Oh my god, we’re in sweatpants!!” They laughed and kissed each other before sharing the big news with all of their loved ones.

Blush Inspired Barn Wedding

Kick off your cowboy boots for this romantic, blush barn wedding. Today’s inspiration dresses a rustic venue with blush florals, flowy fabrics and dazzling bistro lights. It’s a wedding for a couple who loves to mix rustic and elegance.

When you bring layers of petals, delicate fabrics and dusty hues in pinks, greens and blues to a barn setting, you create a beautiful contrast to a rustic wooden scene. Let’s take a closer look at these details.

We love this dress in blush for the bride. It’s flowy, lacy and romantic. When you choose your details, opt for delicacy. Go for decor, wedding attire and flowers that look soft and elegant, just like these flowers on the naked cake. Named for its lightly frosted sides, the naked cake’s look is softened with lush blooms and sage green foliage.

Choose chic linens and delicate Chiavari chairs for your reception. You’ll dress up the barn in the most stunning way. Then, brighten up the ambiance with bistro lights strung over tables for extra twinkle.

dusty-rose-inspired-barn-weddingFeatured Wedding Invitation: Glowing Ceremony . See our full Wedding Invitation Collection here.

This invitation matches the theme to a tee with printed wood texture and a bistro light design. Show off the same design on reception tables with menus, table numbers and place cards.

Little details go a long way and make a place where you and your guests want to celebrate. Plan a little romance for your rustic wedding: colors in dusty pinks, sage greens and grey blues that soften up wooden textures. Remember to find unique details that show off the two of you!

A Pink Outdoor Wedding In Napa Valley

Today, we are so excited to be sharing this romantic wedding, hosted in Napa Valley! If you’re familiar with California wine country, this award-winning hotel and resort will make you feel as though you’ve been instantly transported to Italy.

This sweet couple first met years ago during a study abroad program in Siena, while attending UC Irvine. Their connection was undeniable. After their program ended, these two ended up backpacking all over Europe together! Fast forward seven years, and Don finally got down on one knee, and asked Katherine to be his wife. We are so smitten with all of their wedding details; from their intimate outdoor wedding ceremony overlooking the vineyards, to their luxurious evening reception, we can’t take our eyes off of this special day. Their whimsical, airy wedding colors are perfect for spring and summer!

Blue Vintage Wedding Inspiration with European Decor

Today, we are so overjoyed to be sharing this European-inspired nuptial with you all! Filled with an array of vintage wedding touches, we can’t take our eyes off of this decadent piece. This charming old world venue was built in the early 1900s. Created to resemble a villa in Florence, this house is the epitome of high society. From its serene walled garden to its tall ceilings painted with gold, this breathtaking venue is the ultimate place to exchange I DOs.

We are really enjoying the neutral color palette, filled with soft creamy colors and majestic navy hues. These two colors are a classic pairing, and make a truly great wedding theme, no matter the time of year. The carefully crafted floral letterpress invitations are sophisticated and allow guests to be swept off their feet from the moment they open up the wonderful news. Romantic and stately, these wedding invitations make a stunning accompaniment to the regal wedding theme. Yet, the delicate, hand-painted wedding cake may just be one of our favorite pieces of all!
