The Details: Wicker settees flank a table of bare wood heaped in crystal, fine china, and classically romantic roses in a palette complementary to the simple organic theme

I incorporated some of my most fave photos of all time for this post. After all, anyone who knows me knows garden parties and tea time have to be my number one wedding theme. Once upon a time when I was a tyke, I thought garden weddings were actually held in gardens amid rose bushes and dark soil. Once I was old enough to really catch on, the garden weddings I saw were on TV in old movies in black and white. Dated flicks aside, these afternoon socials aka garden parties were big in the 1920s-30s. Think Jay Gatsby and Katherine Hepburn. Fast forward to my designer years and I see just what you do here: the beauty of green and the vivid colors of florals, vintage fashion and all-around elegance.

I begin every post on elopements with the explanation elopements once upon a time could be a little bit to very taboo affairs. Running off to tie the knot usually meant you had to do it in secrecy. It still means the two of you slipping away, or getting away, only now there's no stigma. Some couples think of it as a celebration of intimacy--all the trimmings of a wedding just for you. Especially appropriate now because of the pandemic, here is your inspo for a spring getaway in the countryside. The bright, vivid pastels of pinks and yellows infused with white and greens say, the dawning of a new season is upon us--the beginning of our journey.

Gowns with multiple skirts called tiers are incredibly romantic. The tiers on this one fall asymmetrically and are bordered lace that fall into a sweep train in back. Add an all over Chantilly lace bodice into the design and you have the perfect Boho bridal look. This white tulle gown was named after the beautiful Angelique who is wearing it. You can see more photos of this jewel on Etsy.

Here's some drama! A shot of Brooke looking every bit lovely in the ivory cathedral veil. Because this veil has so much length and character, we paired it up with a simpler silhouette. Surprisingly, it will work with more ornate gowns and come off looking spectacular! Read more about long veils here

Meet GLORIANA, the newest gem just off the work table. The center point is a shirred tullle bodice over Chantilly lace cutouts underneath with custom buttons down the front. Lots of love of my craft went into fashioning this piece where a mix of all kinds of different laces complement one another. I love being a sustainable designer, using bits of lace from other projects to create something so whole and gorgeous. I call this a real salute to brides wanting to flaunt the Boho/fairytale/pre-1920s theme all at once!.

Today we're sharing a styled shoot celebrating the ultimate elopement. These days weddings are small, sometimes just the bride and groom tying the knot with only a couple friends or family on the scene. READ MORE . . . . .

O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright! It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night Like a rich jewel in an Ethiope’s ear; Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear! So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows, As yonder lady o'er her fellows shows. The measure done, I’ll watch her place of stand, And, touching hers, make blessed my rude hand. Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight! For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night.

A medley of quick inspo today for all you out there deciding between a Gatsby and/or Boho look. Did you know the two are so different yet interchangeable? With a switch of accessories, the look of the era is changed out easily. Even though Gatsby conjures images of the 1920s and Boho was all over the 70s, certain elements echo through both themes and eras. The leaner gown silhouette for instance is symbiotic of both as well as yards of lace and flowing sleeves. Start with these images and come up with your own details!Sean Sato//Photos 2&3: Bride Chic//Photo 4: Sean Sato////Photo 5: Jim Vetter Photography///Photos 6,7&8: Bride Chic// Photo 9: Sean Sato
