Blue and White Vintage Garden Wedding in the Midwest

Today, we are having fun soaking in the beauty of this vintage wedding inspiration. Within this quaint garden wedding, blue takes center stage! This majestic, tranquil color is seen on the wedding shoes, bridal bouquet, bridesmaid dresses, wedding invitations, and even the hand-made cake.

From the lace on the wedding dress, to the lace on the tablescape, every piece complements one another within this inspiration. The vintage blue wedding invitations are a perfect fit, and seem as though they were made for this chic event. The detailed vintage china plates and stunning gold chargers are a real treat, and help elevate this captivating tablescape nestled within the charming Midwest.

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.

A Romantic Southern Outdoor Wedding in South Carolina

Today, we are swooning over this seriously stunning styled shoot! There are so many things we love about this piece- its romantic charm, the golden summer hues, and the vintage Rolls Royce automobile. If you are thinking about hosting a summer outdoor wedding, take notes on this epic traditional wedding inspiration.

There is something so nostalgic about Charleston; we are forever smitten with the Spanish moss that dangles along the old trees, and the ageless brick homes that live within its city limits. It’s a quaint little city that almost seems to take you back in time. Though any wedding theme looks stunning in South Carolina, we can’t help but fall head over heels for a soft color palette here, where the scenery does most of the talking. This formal wedding used our premium foil pressed wedding invitations to tie in their chic theme.

Make sure to also check out the fun creative video down at the bottom! #swoon

Chic Black Tie Wedding in NYC

Today, we are so delighted to be sharing this spectacular black tie wedding with you all!

Alice and Peter held their big day in the ever-glamorous New York City. Their chic wedding had an all white wedding theme, paired with soft neutral colors. Have we mentioned yet that we think metallic tones are neutral?

From amazing rooftop pictures, pale champagne bridesmaids dresses, an elegant church ceremony, and a twinkly reception venue, we have to refrain from staring at all of its splendor. Their timeless wedding invitations help tie everything together!

Alice was lucky enough to wear two different gowns on her wedding day. The first wedding dress is strapless and filled with lots of glamorous tool; her second wedding dress has an amazing illusion neckline, with dainty floral accents scattered about. This classic, formal affair is truly a wedding that wowed its guests.

Classic Black and White Wedding Shoot

Today, we are really enjoying the clean, crisp lines within this wedding inspiration. If you long for a classic black and white wedding, this inspiration may be for you!

Refined, chic, and elegant, perfectly sum up this timeless photography. For this type of formal wedding, think about a grand piano, designer wedding dresses, and unique wedding accessories. Perfect for any time of the year, this black tie event will be just as beautiful during the winter as it will during the spring!

We love the silver-rimmed glassware, amazing white Calla Lilies, and marbled wedding cake. The matching wedding invitations elevate the reception decor, and help tie the neutral wedding theme together. Even if your guest list is rather large, these stylish decorations will help give your wedding a more intimate feel.

Formal Black-Tie Wedding

Today, we are beaming with joy to share Megan and Benjamin’s classic, formal wedding. Hosted in Tampa Florida, these elegant venues perfectly captured their traditional day. Weddings with a soft, neutral palette remain effortlessly timeless! Great for any season, this dignified wedding theme easily translates no matter where you and your significant other may live.

From The Bride:

Our wedding was very “us” in every way possible! From the venue’s botanical vibe, to our wine cork collection serving as our personalized “guest book”, and our musician’s alternative sound, every single detail of this wedding was hand-chosen by myself and my husband. Our simple yet beautiful flowers, the meal and appetizers served, our “exit” details (playing/dancing in balloons to our favorite song and riding off in a Wrangler), our WPD paper products that truly defined our overall wedding “theme”, and everything else in between- every piece was intentional. It couldn’t have been more perfect, or unique to us and our 10 year relationship!
