Ever since today’s bride saw Father of the Bride, she’s been in love with the idea of an elegant backyard wedding. She got her wish with the help of her landlord, who opened their gorgeous home for this couple’s big day, and Sweet Julep Photography was there to capture it all. The color palette shows springtime at it’s best, with teal pairing perfectly with a soft peach. The teal tulle Jenny Yoo bridesmaid dresses are what dreams are made of and the florals by Laurel Greene Studio completed the enchanted garden look. And while we are all about the details here at ELD… could this couple be any more adorable? Their smiles and joy are so infectious, securing their wedding day as a favorite!

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

In the process – My now husband! With his background in engineering and business, he was incredibly important to helping me determine how to prioritize, allocate funds, and negotiate contracts. In close second, my maid of honor. She was there every step of the way to go to wedding dress fittings with me, pick out bridesmaids’ dresses, make site visits, work on invitations, and so much more.

On the wedding day – Our reception coordinator, Allison Westlake. We met a couple of times before the wedding to nail down day-of needs and the timeline. She executed the timing of everything so well, and it really helped me relax and not worry with the details on that day!

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

I wanted to work with people I respected as artists and who caught Hunter and I’s vision. I never had to over-communicate what I wanted, because our vendors were so well aligned with our own style.

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

Ever since I saw “Father of the Bride” when I was younger, I had always dreamed of a backyard reception. When I saw my landlord’s backyard, I knew it was perfect. That elegant, relaxed garden style became the tone for the rest of the wedding. I also loved the colors of the stained-glass in the chapel where we were married – a soft palette that we drew from in our invitations, flowers, and other details.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

We chose to place our cake table under a wooden arbor in the backyard. My florist, Staci, really did an amazing job filling it out with beautiful greenery and roses. When I saw it at the reception, it took my breath away!

What is your best piece of advice for other brides? 

If it isn’t something you love, or something that your guests will love, don’t do it. You can easily put that money into something with a better return. Take time to discuss your priorities with your groom and family, and when issues come up during the process go back to that list and see where it fits in. It helped me stay sane!

Copper is the big new metallic this year and we are even more in love with it after seeing this intimate coastal North Carolina wedding from Taken by Sarah Photography. From the beautiful florals (seriously, who thought you could get that copper color in a flower?) to the cog cake decoration, Phyllis and Aaron beautifully infused copper details to help create the fun and laid-back wedding they’d been dreaming of. Moscow mules were, of course, the signature drink of choice to help get the party started. But our favorite detail has to be the bread loaf place cards! We love when details work double duty and think this is a genius idea! Enjoy all of the gorgeous friends!

Chris and Katie’s Arizona wedding day filled with color and happiness took place at Paradise Valley Country Club, a location that happened to have great meaning for both of their families. A color palette boasting shades of pink, peach, and orange set the stage for a fun, chic affair. The two exchanged their vows with Camelback Mountain in the background, surrounded by their family and friends. Citrus fruit was incorporated into the centerpieces and tablescapes, and my goodness are they gorgeous! Great food, an amazing bad, and a party that people are still talking about was all the icing on the cake. Jay & Jess Photography were there to capture every moment and detail, and we are so very glad to share it all with y’all today!

Today’s wedding inspiration is a beautiful balance of contrasts. Juxtaposing hard and soft, urban and romantic, Katie of Chancey Charm Weddings and her team created a stunning wedding design that will set any city bride’s hearts a flutter. The industrial vibe comes from the High Line Car House, an old car house and barn from 1873, that has amazing exposed brick for the perfect urban backdrop. The glamorous gown and rich florals balance out the hard, creating a soft elegance that is too dreamy for words! Captured by Derks Works Photography, the end result is a combination of feminine romance and raw urban vibe that is easy to fall in love with.
