With the refreshing subtleties of the first days of spring, Ais Portraits along with RW Events created classic Southern garden wedding ideas inspired by the vision of “The First I Dew.” We appreciate a good pun, but this inspiration stole our hearts with the bright spring colors, a design dripping with lush blooms evoking a natural and organic feel, and the soft watercolor patterns. Oh, and that pup y’all… you will LOVE the adorable puppy that stole the show in several of the portraits!

RW Events created a style that mixed the classic elegance of a Southern wedding with a handful of modern touches and feminine fun. The florals, designed by Flowers by Lesley, created a lush garden feel that immediately puts you in a joyful spring mindset, and the style she created tied together beautifully with the watercolor invitation style and fabric that was incorporated throughout the design.

We think you’ll love this fresh floral style as much as we do, and we can’t wait for you to see!

Nestled under the tall mossy trees of Cypress Grove Estate House, Sandra and Geoffrey exchanged their vows among family and friends in this classic Florida wedding. Their style was full of romantic details- from the rose-filled bouquets to the red and pink color palette, we just love how it played into the beautiful setting of the day.

An eclectic mix of old books, soft blooms, and potted succulents for the table settings were the perfect compliment to the vintage pieces used for the sweetheart table and cake set-up. We are also a fan of the custom calligraphy found throughout the wedding day, creating sweet statement pieces in their design. RW Events did a beautiful job styling the most perfect details of the day, and we are just loving the way Tara Libby Photography brought the day to life. We hope you enjoy!

Nikki and Ryan felt as though they were taking a risk when they opted for a wine themed wedding for their day at Orlando’s Cyprus Grove Estate. Wine corks were accented with flowers for the gents’ boutonnieres, wine barrels were stationed on either side of their aisle, and wine bottles served as table numbers. With help and guidance from their wedding planner, Runway Events, it’s safe to say their risk paid off beautifully! Pink, red, grey, and gold filled their wedding day palette – a gorgeous combination for a New Year’s Day soiree! Rustic details meet lovely notes of glam in today’s fete (plus a dessert bar with donuts!), and I’m so excited to share the photos taken by Captured by Belinda and Nikki’s best advice below. Keep reading, y’all!

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

This question is a toss up–  it’s between my fabulous wedding planner who truly helped me with familiarizing myself with how weddings work, styling, and getting everything coordinated day of so I had nothing to worry about. My sister, aka maid of honor, who was always around whatever I needed whether it was just to vent, give me advice, or just making sure my guests were having a good time on wedding day. However, I really think this honor has to go to my husband for supporting me throughout the wedding process from beginning to end and for making me feel beautiful on our special day.

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

The most important thing was professionalism. I needed to find a team that was organized, timely at responding to emails, and able to answer all my questions.

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

My  husband and I decided on a wine themed wedding – I mean who doesn’t like wine?  We thought we could utilize the common day wine materials for DIY projects to help save costs. Searching Pinterest and the web we started to develop our picture perfect wedding. We decided on a winter color palate that both captured a mixture of elegance and rustic qualities: A luscious rustic pink, glamorous gold, deep red, and gray blue. With the help of family and friends we made a luxurious wine cork chandelier, eye catching wine bottle trays, and spray painted wine bottles with DIY labels for center pieces. We captured our theme with two flower filled wine barrels lining our ceremony aisle, a wine barrel table topped with a beautiful candy display, and the rustic elegance of our sweet heart table set.

The romance of Valentine’s Day can be felt all throughout this eclectic inspiration featuring gorgeous red wedding ideas. As a nod to Cupid, arrow heads were used as inspiration for details and design elements throughout the romantic, eclectic inspiration. A unique color palette of marsala, red, and pink created a look that would be perfect for a wedding taking place any time of year, not just around Valentine’s Day! Captured by Amalie Orrange Photography and Ashley McCormick Photography, this inspiration shoot was a part of the Develop Workshop (which I also had the pleasure of speaking at), and I can’t wait to share the beauty with you!

From Amalie:

I came up with the design concept because I love Valentine’s day but wanted to do something different than the typical red roses and hearts that were associated with it. I love geometric patterns so we used the gold arrow heads to tie the entire concept together from the chair backs that we made, detail on the cake, table runner, invitations and backdrop I think it brought the entire look together quiet well. We chose marsala and gold as our accents to show a soft palette using the new Pantone color of the year, I am slightly obsessed and cannot wait to see brides use these colors!  

I just love the combination of a romantic style with a bit of a boho, eclectic vibe! And the arrow heads used throughout everything are awesome- the subtle nod to Valentine’s Day is perfect, don’t you think?

So what do you think of these red wedding ideas? Would you use a color palette like this for your own wedding?
