This rustic elegant red wedding is filled with meaningful, personal details that Casey Hendrickson Photography captured beautifully! The bride Katie wore her mother’s gown and veil, her rings were made from family diamonds, and the rustic elegant style combined the groom’s love of the outdoors with Katie’s love of everything feminine and vintage. Katie is here with us today sharing more about her wedding…

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

My Mother and Mother-In-Law. I’m so blessed to have these women in my lives, they were there for every step in the planning and with so much of the wedding being DIY, they helped me with every detail.

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

Personality of the vendors. I wanted to make sure who we were working with understood what we wanted, were friendly, easy to communicate with, and well organized. Our vendors were wonderful and nailed every detail, our wedding day went so smoothly it was like a dream. I kept waiting for something terrible to happen!

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

I wanted to make sure both our personalities were represented in the wedding details. I love vintage, delicate details and Josh is a huge outdoorsman, so we added wood slabs, quail feathers, and antlers to the theme. I loved how the rustic details balanced the more feminine details.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

All of the family and friends represented in the hand-made details. Josh designed my rings and used diamonds from our family, his wedding band was his Dad’s. My wedding dress and veil were my mother’s that my grandmother altered to make the dress more modern. The wedding was officiated by Josh’s childhood friend. The bridesmaid’s earrings and groomsmen’s cuffs links were made by one of the bridesmaids. Josh and I designed the invitations, programs, and wedding favors. Josh and his parents made the tobacco stick baskets for the out of town guests. Our red velvet wedding cake was made by my aunt. The list goes on and on, so much love and hard work was put into this wedding from so many people, it made the wedding feel so personal.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

Planning a wedding can be stressful! Start planning early and don’t think you have to do it all by yourself. The earlier you start and the more you allow people to help will make the process so much easier!

How lovely are the shades of red used all throughout everything? And the antlers in the centerpieces are the perfect way to infuse the outdoors, don’t you think?

So tell me- will you be combining two styles to reflect you and your future spouse too?

If you know anything about Lilly Pulitzer, the words fun and colorful are somewhat automatic when you think of the gorgeous brand, and these Lilly Pulitzer wedding ideas are all that and more! Inspired by the upcoming collaboration of Lilly Pulitzer and Target, one of our favorite planners, The Majestic Vision, teamed up with some of Palm Beach’s best wedding professionals to create a Lilly Pulitzer wedding look that would make Lilly herself happily spill her juice (pun totally intended… #spillthejuice)!

Krystal Zaskey Photography captured the beauty while Anchor Weddings Videography filmed all of the happenings, and I’m SO excited for you to see it all! Stefany of The Majestic Vision is here with us today sharing more about the design and details, all of which reflect the history and loves of Lilly Pulitzer…

It all started with a juice stand! When Lilly Pulitzer escaped the hustle and bustle of New York City for sunny Palm Beach, she never could have imagined what lay in store. Her husband Peter Pulitzer owned an orange grove. Sharing that same entrepreneurial spirit as her husband, she decided to open a juice stand on Worth Avenue. Very quickly she amassed a closet full of juice-stained clothes. In an effort to hide the juice stains, Lilly created some brightly colored dresses. Her dresses quickly became popular among those in the country’s most fashionable resort towns, including Jackie Kennedy. For the past 50 years, Lilly Pulitzer’s designs have been ultimate representation of elegant fun in the sun.

Lilly’s designs and spirit inspired this fun, bright and gorgeous styled shoot. We infused Lilly inspired details throughout the shoot, especially the custom upholstered couch with vintage 1970s Lilly Pulitzer fabric and our interpretation the Worth Ave juice stand. The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach is only a block away from Worth Ave and served as the perfect location for our theme – combining the luxury and laid back feel of Palm Beach. It truly is the quintessential Palm Beach location.

Bright and bold pinks, yellows, oranges and greens served as our fun color palette. The incredible floral and decor was provided by Orange Blossoms Florals and Event Styling perfectly highlighted the color scheme.

Lilly Pulitzer was an inspiring hostess. Her books were filled with wonderful ideas to throw the perfect party. Many times she would incorporate herbs into her centerpieces and decor. As an ode to that lesser known fact, we styled our ceremony space in the herb garden at The Colony Hotel. The bougainvillea filled pergola served as the perfect archway for our couple. The aisle was lined with green vases and white lanterns, both filled with orchids and oranges. Our bridal party, including our puppy ring bearer, were dressed in the latest Lilly Pulitzer spring line – Yellow First Impression.

Our escort cards were glasses bottles with attached name tags. These bottles were then filled with juice from our lime green juice stand. Vintage Lilly fabric was used for the awning of the juice stand, names of actual Lilly prints were used for the signature juices and various Lilly glassware was available just in case someone lost their bottle. The golden pineapples were the finishing touch in creating the fun bar area.

The tablescape was covered by a luscious garland and white glass vases, both filled with various fruit, palm fronds and bright flowers. Green glass chargers accompanied by silver roped design flatware, crystal glassware and a bottle of Onli flavored water (the guest favor!) sat a top the lemon yellow linen to set the tone. Each place setting was adorned with alternating orange and lemon calligraphed place cards, custom Lilly Pulitzer napkins and beautifully designed menu cards from Chirp Paperie. Another Lilly twist was taken with creating the monogram chair sign attached with pink ribbon.

The incredible and scrumptious 5 tier cake adds the sweetness that every wedding desires. Johnson Custom Cakes created uneven layers wrapped in lime green ribbon and filled with bright florals. The vintage pink Veuve Clicquot champagne case, palm fronds and oranges tied the cake table design to the rest of the wedding.

One of my favorite details of the shoot was in our lounge area – custom upholstered couch using vintage 1970s Lilly fabric provided by Orange Blossoms Florals and Event Styling. It was perfect spot to put up your feet and relax after a long day.

I love it all so much! If this doesn’t leave you with a smile on your face, I don’t know what will! As a Florida girl myself, seeing the essence of Florida embodied in a wedding design is pretty exciting. Oh, and Lilly Pulitzer for Target, that’s pretty darn exciting too! My big concern is that we only have one Target store in my small town… wish me luck!

A big huge thank you to all of the amazing Florida wedding vendors involved in this inspiration! They are all are amazing- be sure to check them out via the links in the vendor credits below!

Tara and Brent’s glamorous black and white wedding was planned by Scheme Events and captured by Adam Trujillo, and is most definitely one for the books! Traveling to Las Vegas to celebrate in style, this Pittsburgh couple incorporated their favorite hometown team- the Steelers- in the classiest and most gorgeous way. Tara is here with us today sharing all about her planning experience, so sit back, enjoy, and take in all of the beauty and insight!

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

My wedding planner/designer helped me every step of the way. I hired Las Vegas based Scheme Events early in the planning process and my lead planner was Tara Federico. I truly don’t know what I would have done without Tara and the ladies of Scheme Events. I also had a ton of help and support from my family and my bridesmaids. I am very fortunate to have so many great people in my life!

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

The most important thing was to have vendors with experience and credibility. We planned a destination wedding in Las Vegas from across the country in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania so it was important to have people that I could trust to plan and coordinate our vision for our wedding day. I relied on preferred vendor lists from various venues in Las Vegas that we checked out prior to hiring Scheme. Scheme was on every preferred vendor list along with the other vendors we ended up using including our bakery (Gimme Some Sugar), photographer/cinema (Adam Trujillo Photography), florist (Layers of Lovely) and DJ Mike Fox. I also relied on many online reviews from different wedding websites. After Tara and I started working together, I also looked to her for vendor recommendations including the first and most important decision being our wedding venue. We chose The Westin Lake Las Vegas for the beauty, great wedding reputation and delicious food. The Westin is located about 30 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip. Having the wedding here took our guests away from all of the distractions of the Strip and to the beauty of a lake, mountains and palm trees in the middle of the desert.

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

I always knew I wanted a glamorous and classy feel to my wedding and I also knew I wanted my wedding colors to be black and white. The color gold also added that touch of class I was looking for. Black, white and gold would not only achieve the glamorous and classy look but it perfectly incorporated our Pittsburgh pride…we are huge Pittsburgh Steelers fans. I especially wanted to do this because we were having a destination wedding so bringing touches of home with us to Vegas was a great way to incorporate it all.

The design portion was a lot of planning and working with Tara on floral, linens, place settings, favors and all of the other small details. I used websites like Pinterest as inspiration. I love sparkle, feathers and pearls. Tara was able to design this look with black sequin linens, gold sparkly candles and huge centerpieces with draping pearls and feathers. We incorporated each color at different times during the wedding day. The ceremony was all white, the cocktail hour was gold and the reception was where it all came together and the color black was introduced along with accents of white and gold.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

My favorite thing was having our family and friends all in Vegas at the same time and celebrating our special day with them. My other favorite things I have to say were our wedding favors. First, we had custom Terrible Towels made with my new last name, wedding date and location. Each guest waved their towel during our grand entrance with our wedding party. This was another way we brought a little bit of Pittsburgh to Vegas. Second, we had caricature drawings of each guest as a place card. They were adorable! The best part of this was that the guests had no idea we were doing this. I pulled most of the pictures from social media or used photos I already had and submitted them to the caricature artist (Girl Who Drew You). It was so much fun to see the guests surprised reaction!

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

A couple of things:

1. Consider a wedding planner. If you can include a wedding planner in your budget, my advice is to absolutely hire someone with experience. Wedding planners aren’t just for celebrities or wealthy couples like I originally thought. They are for everyone. I am very organized and detail oriented so I thought I could handle it all myself but it does get overwhelming at times especially when planning such a huge life event. I had a lot of stress taken off my shoulders by having Tara by my side so I highly recommend at least contacting a few planners for a consultation. Another option to consider is to have a “day of” planner only. This may fit more into a budget and still ensures your wedding day will run smoothly.

2. Invest in a good photographer and videographer. A wedding day is the most important day of your life so you need every important moment captured in a beautiful way. I am beyond pleased with our wedding photos. Also, we debated on whether or not to include cinema (video) in our budget and we ended up doing it. I will say it is definitely worth it…you can’t go back and re-make those special moments.

3. Really think about entertainment. Our DJ was awesome! Our guests are still talking about him 5 months after the wedding. This is something your guests will remember so consider investing in some great entertainment.

4. Last but not least…enjoy the day! Everyone tells you to enjoy it because it goes fast and it truly does! I took that advice and on my wedding day, I enjoyed each moment. I actually ate my dinner, tried our wedding cake (because you hear so many brides and grooms don’t have time to), enjoyed cocktails and I was on the dance floor all night long. Most of all, I had a blast with my groom, family and friends. Every bride should do this at their wedding. Trust your vendors and let them handle everything else while you are having some fun!

Oh my goodness, Tara’s advice is absolutely perfect! And I just love the details of her wedding and how they were all so personal- everything from the design inspiration to the special placecards, they are all truly amazing!

Tara and Brent weren’t afraid to be inspired by their hometown team when it came to their wedding, and they did it gorgeously with the help of their team of professionals! So tell me- do you and your future spouse have a favorite team that you would want to draw your inspiration from?
