What do you get when you combine black and white stripes, polka dots, pops of color, and chic, sophisticated style? Kate Spade inspired wedding ideas of course! If you’ve been on my Pinterest or caught any of my personal snaps on Instagram, then you know how much I love Kate Spade. So when Ashley Baber Weddings sent over this colorful inspiration shoot inspired by Kate Spade, it was an absolute no-brainer that I just *had* to feature it! Of course it helps that the images by Odalys Mendez Photography are absolutely stunning, and everything is so incredibly fun!

I love how all of this is simple, yet still so incredibly chic. The pops of color amidst the black and white, the bridesmaids’ looks, and the bride’s style- everything is so perfectly Kate Spade!

Are any of you Kate Spade lovers also? What do you think about being inspired by a designer for your wedding decor?

Some of you may remember an “Eclectic Chic” inspiration board that I did over the summer that was inspired by my local Kate Spade store….

 

Kate Spade Inspiration Shoot via TheELD.com

 

Well, this my friends, is the inspiration board brought to life! I LOVE doing photo shoots, and even more I love seeing the inspiration board and everything pulled together! With flowers and decor from MMD Events, Tina Bass Photography, and shooting at the amazing Postcard Inn in St. Petersburg, everything came together gorgeously. This inspiration shoot was actually featured on Wedding Chicks yesterday, which means I’ve had to hold back from posting it- but not anymore, it’s all for you to see!

Now for a little bit from MMD Events (aka me): Our goal with this shoot was to show brides that they can use bright colors and bold patterns and still be chic and modern. Placed with unique plates, the simple, chic menus created by Emily Ley Paper were the starting element. A simplistic colored border and matching font coordinated with the color of the napkins and the “place books”. Place cards created by Emily were made to look like “titles” for miniature books, doubling as favors at each place setting. Various found objects and a unique table number created by Every Last Detail added to the eclectic feel for the table.

 

A gorgeous centerpiece in shades of pink garden roses was placed on top of fashion magazines, standing out against the backdrop of a chic black lamp. A champagne and gold overlay was draped over a kelly green satin linen, all provided by Connie Duglin Linen. Gold chivari chairs from Signature Event Rentals were adorned by custom chivari chair toppers created by Simply & Forever Boutique, adding the perfect amount of style and sophistication. Combined with a custom bench cover made of a black and white floral print, the black and white seating completed the whole table.

 

Our stunning model wore a gorgeous gown provided by White Closet Co. and was all dolled up by Hope Henderson Artistry and Hair By Monique. She was accessorized with Stella & Dot jewelry, Bethany Lorelle hairpieces, and an adorably chic clutch from Oatmeal Lace Design. These bright colors and bold patterns are perfect for a stylish bride wanting a wedding that is a little different, yet still incredibly chic. And of course the details are what complete this whole eclectic chic look!

 

You don’t see bold colors and design like this too often going around the blogosphere and I find myself wondering why. I think sometimes bold colors are done a little tacky, but the key to keeping it chic and modern is all in the details! I KNOW there has to be a handful of brides out there who have a style just like this in their everyday lives! So, what do you all think? Anyone planning on going bold, eclectic, and chic for their wedding?

The romance of this spring inspired wedding design is filled with so much beauty. Captured by one of our favorite Chicago photographers, Nicole Jansma Photography, every detail is just as inspiring as it is gorgeous. Members of the vendor team shared their insights behind their own pieces of the design perfectly, so we thought we would share their own words describing this look: 

From the Planner, Sarah Rhodes-Boyce: For this shoot, spring was on the mind. I envisioned a beautiful young woman riding her bike with a rattan basket up front filled with fresh spring blooms tied in a sweet sky-blue gingham ribbon. From there a color palette was born: light gray, soft blues and pinks, crisp linen-y whites and pure green. I wanted the shoot to be simple, sweet and young, surrounded by lush florals and old architecture. Despite the fact that it was an overcast, chilly Chicago winter day, The Armour House provided us with the most beautiful backdrop for the shoot and made us feel like we had been transported to an early, crisp Paris spring!

From the Florist, Jackson Floral Design: Fresh, just picked from the garden, spring florals in classic white and a touch of blush set the tone for the bridal bouquet and table arrangement. My vision was to add romance to the look with a full, organic styled bouquet and a statement centerpiece filled with big blooms and lush greenery. My favorite touch as a designer is to add long, trailing ribbons to the bouquet. They add a soft, ethereal element that I just can’t get enough of!

From the Photographer, Nicole Jansma Photography: Sometimes I feel like I get the easy part of the gig :) If you surround yourself by talented vendors who hand you something gorgeous to photograph, in the most dreamy of settings, you really don’t have to work too hard to make magic happen! For this shoot, I wanted to show off the incredible architecture of The Armour House and the lovely, springy florals. My style of shooting is very soft, quiet, and organic, so it was fun to blend that with something more bold and symmetrical like the backdrops we were given at this venue.

An elegant old world style with whimsical and fairytale-like details made for a beautiful and romantic wedding day for Alyssa and Steven. Deep burgundy and navy tones and sharp black tuxedos added to the classic style, while florals by Flowers By Lesley  added a fun touch of whimsy to the design of their day.

Alyssa knew she wanted a fairytale style wedding, but didn’t their wedding day to feel overdone or childish, and we love how they made subtle nods to this style while also creating an elegant affair. Deep burgundy blooms arranged in a loose and organic style added a romantic feel to the design, and you don’t want to miss the incredible navy wedding cake!

We think you’re going to love the intentional details that made for such a beautiful day, captured by Rudy & Marta Photography and coordinated by Blush by Brandee Gaar. And be sure to catch some of this bride and groom’s favorite moments that they shared from their wedding day!

Tell us a little a bit about your wedding (your vision, color, style, and location choices).

I love fairytales and stories, always have, so when thinking about our day that provided a big inspiration for the style of the wedding. But I didn’t want it to be the corny fairytale references everywhere type of thing. Instead, I also drew inspiration from the new live-action Beauty and the Beast and pulled the wild, old-style beauty. We are using a lot of gold and to look more antique and will be using a more wild style to the flowers and have beautiful gold candelabras. The best descriptor I could give is the old world, wild fairytale style.

What was the most important to the two of you while planning? Was there anything that you chose to splurge on or skip?

Photography, Videography, and Flowers were our top 3 most important while planning. Obviously, the first two are the way we will remember the day forever. Flowers were also an important feature because they can transform the appearance of an area.

What were your favorite parts of the day? (memories and stories)

My favorite part of the day was probably the first look. I was so anxious prior to, but after seeing Steven all my anxiety disappeared. I also loved our ceremony it was very personal, by having my Aunt perform it, and our vows matched well even though we wrote them separately.

Do you have any advice for couples planning their weddings now?

Don’t sweat the small stuff. Remember that the most important part is marrying your best friend.

These two created such a magical fairytale of a day to celebrate the start to their marriage, and it couldn’t have been more of a dream. We are thrilled to have a short video from You & I Pictures with more of their day.
