Modern & Minimalistic Woodland Wedding

Who says a woodland wedding needs to be rustic or boho? Both lovers of clean lines and modern minimalistic décor, Aaron and Katie wanted that reflected in their September day. The bride also always wanted to get married in a forest location so finding Pinewood Weddings & Events, located an hour north of Minneapolis, in was the perfect combination for their vision.

“Honestly, we just chose the things we love the most to feature (darts, great music, hot sauce etc)”, the bride explained. “We DIY’d a seating chart installation with darts and cork boards. Aaron and I spray painted each dart ourselves to match the colours of our
wedding. Our colours were sage green, emerald green, chartreuse green, burnt orange, marigold yellow and blush pink. We also used hand drawn trees and plants for the table names and numbers.” Another unique touch was their ‘guest book’ where they asked guests to sign some of their favourite records. They then hung them up in their house afterwards.

Contemporary & Colourful Saguaro Palm Springs Wedding

Ali’s main goal for her June wedding to Mike was for it to feel modern and contemporary with a colourful edge. They chose the iconic Saguaro Hotel in Palm Springs which obviously ticked all the colourful boxes! They didn’t need to add much in the need of extra decor at all, using the rainbow backdrop of the hotel in all their photos.

“We both knew we wanted a desert wedding, but didn’t want to ‘rough it’ out in the middle of no where”, Ali said. “Palm Springs has always been a special getaway for us since early in our relationship, and it has the look and feel of the desert vibe we wanted. Mike and I are also big fans of the tiki world. We knew we wanted to incorporate some of that into the wedding, but without having it be a ‘tiki themed’ wedding. As soon as I saw The Saguaro Palm Springs, I knew that’s where we’d be getting married one day!”

Bold Meets Moody: A Modern Multicultural Wedding with their own City!

Stephanie and Rich married on their 10 year dating anniversary, to the day. As a couple, they love to be creative and tell a story – Rich’s proposal included an elaborate scavenger hunt to all they significant date spots across San Francisco, with meticulously planned video clues pre-recorded and all their friends and family waiting at the final proposal spot! No pressure for their wedding, then. 

The couple came up with the concept of creating a ‘city’ to represent their relationship as their reception theme. The couple have deep love for their urban lives – Stephanie grew up in San Francisco and Rich works as an estate agent. They hinted towards it with house-shaped structures and city lamps as props and created ‘destinations’ for their guests to visit during the reception based on all their favourite past-times; a car show, an art gallery, a bar named after their dogs and ‘restaurants’ of their favourite foods, to name but a few.

Pretty in Pink: A Tropical Meets Junk Food London Wedding

Lucie and Tommy’s London wedding was inspired by the bride’s love of pink, their mutual appreciation for the tropical aesthetic and the 1950s, and London, where the day took place. The bride arrived at Hackney Town Hall in a pink Cadillac, her bridal party all wore pink dresses from Coast and their reception decor was all shades from pastel to fuchsia and everything in between. They served their favourite junk food (burgers and Domino’s pizza!) and had one hell of a party!

They chose Core Clapton for their reception. a lovely blank canvas of a venue with a domed white ceiling and lots of space to get creative with the decorations. DIY wasn’t their forte, but they did pull the vision of the day together themselves.

Eclectic & Modern Bohemian Wedding

Sara and Thom made their family and friends the focus for their summer wedding; they wanted to create a comfortable space for everyone to hang out, get to know each other, have good food and just enjoy themselves. Most of their friends and family were travelling out of state to join them in their celebrations, so they wanted to make it kid friendly so everyone could relax together, too.

Aesthetically, they didn’t really have a theme, but they wanted their personal styles to be reflected in their decor. “We wanted sort of an eclectic vintage boho modern vibe without looking too trendy,” said Sara.  “But I have to admit we didn’t need to do much because our venue was already perfect. I mean – open air chapel built with antique doors found in Paris, overlooking a pasture where horses are galloping by during the ceremony? We didn’t need a theme!”

A Modern Marie Antoinette Meets Witchy NYC Wedding

Hosting their wedding day at a mansion on the Upper East Side of New York meant Mike and Midge couldn’t go halves with their wedding theme – and they did not disappoint! “The inspiration behind our wedding was a very modernised and stripped down version of the Marie Antoinette aesthetic,” said Midge. “Think classic yet decadent, with a lil’ bit of a witchy touch!”

Aside from dressing it with dozens of white roses, pillar candles and eucalyptus, the house needed little else in the way of decor to achieve their opulent, palatial vibe. Complete with chandeliers, sweeping staircases and original features, it was the perfect setting for their day.
