We are so thrilled to share with you today’s wedding inspiration that was curated so perfectly by this incredible team of vendors. Beatbox Portraits and Vintage Sparkle Rentals created four unique styles using a few basics in an effort to inspire and show you how many elements from decor pieces, design, and even a dress can work for any season if you’re willing to make modifications.
What we really love about this concept is that each style they created has a very different feel, but it is a great way to see that just because you are using the same basic pieces as someone else, the whole look can be completely different based upon how you implement the design, and what details you choose to incorporate. Through each style, they also offered unique food selections that paired well with each season, and A Sophisticated Affair and Amuse Bake Shop created the most delicious looking spreads for both the reception meal and dessert options.
So, what were the basics they started with? The picturesque venue, one gown, a basic arrangement of greenery and white florals by Vivienne and Vine, and a farm table. From these simple elements, this team of vendors produced not one, but four completely different wedding looks to span the seasons, and we think you’re going to love the outcome!
This team of vendors began their journey through the seasons starting with spring, where they created a Pearlescent Spring Brunch infusing soft shades of pink, lavender, and blue that captured the light and dreamy feel of the season. The bride wore an intricately beaded A-line strapless gown from Bliss Bridal, and they added a tulle skirt overlay and a delicate opal jeweled belt to create a classic romantic look that can later be transformed through the seasons. They used a soft romantic floral arrangement full of lush greenery and large blooms. They chose to create this first look as a brunch, and we love how it allowed the style to take on a fun playful feel, while maintaining a classically romantic look. We love the beautiful watercolor placemats that served as the perfect focal point for each place setting of vintage china and peach glassware.
For the summer season, this team created a Colorful Summer Soiree with bright pops of color infused throughout the design. From the candles, to the place settings, to the fresh fruit salad, color is sprinkled throughout in perfect little touches. The bride’s look was updated with a navy statement necklace, and she wore her hair and makeup in a bolder and edgier style. With the meal incorporating fresh fruits and refreshing treats, we find the menu perfectly tailored for the warm summer months.
Autumn means family, comfort and sharing, so what better way to celebrate than with a Traditional Fall Fete style. We love how they morphed the same gown by adding a unique leaf and floral shoulder detail overlay along with a cathedral length veil. Throughout this style, they kept the focus on food elements that were incorporated into the design. We love that they used pears as place cards, and mixed artichokes, cabbage, radishes, purple lettuce, and berries into the floral arrangements. And don’t even get us started on the family style dining full of the most delicious looking comfort food, and the cutest individual pies added in as a dessert option for guests.
A color palette of deep blue, dove gray, and frosty white set the tone for the sophisticated Winter wedding style. The bride was the picture of cool, Hollywood glamour, with elegant hair and makeup featuring smooth retro waves, a smoky eye and a nude lip. They transformed the beaded gown yet again by pairing it with a refined faux fur capelet in cerulean blue and large statement earrings. We love how they carried this icy style through the table design with gold chargers, china, and crystal goblets in varied shades of blue. With a hearty fair and decadent desserts ranging from tarts to biscotti, and those stunning cakes, the food inspiration offered a bit of warmth to this relatively cool design.
We love the idea of taking a selection of design basics, and transforming it in a variety of ways, and we think this team did a great job in really bringing all four seasons to life with their designs. It is always fun to see how common pieces can be used in so many creative ways, and this team pulled off some incredibly looks that were complete on their own, but it is fun to compare them between styles.
Are there elements you’re looking to incorporate in your design that you’re transforming based upon the season of your wedding?
