Dallas Dinner Photographed by Ryan Ray

Comments: 0

What a wonderful year of destination event travel for Easton! We were oh so lucky to spend the year planning with this adorable couple. Stefy and Michael are just returning from their honeymoon after an amazing wedding celebration in Mazatlan, Mexico over the Thanksgiving holiday. So by way of reminiscing, we thought we would share some photos from their spring Welcome Party at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas.

We channeled a clean modern aesthetic with mirrored table top, ghost chairs and simple clean lines of deconstructed florals. The palette inspiration for this dinner is a mix of reflective glass and tropical flowers. We especially love the menu detail printed on clear vellum. Ryan Ray did a splendid job capturing the couple and the event for us!

Many thanks to Martha Stewart Weddings for featuring Stefy & Michael’s party on The Bride’s Guide. Check out the post here!

Charleston Wedding Inspiration: Pearls

There’s nothing more classic than a strand of perfectly polished pearls adorning a bride’s neck.  We love the way brides are modernizing the single strand by layering, knotting, and slinging them around the back of their gowns.

Charleston Wedding Inspiration: Frills

Comments: 0

With all of this Gatsby talk, we are loving the look of layered frills to bring a fresh nod toward the roaring twenties.

Many of the 2013 runways are featuring soft, flowing folds of fabric in skirting, sleeves, and everywhere in between.  Frills are an ultra-femme way to pump up the volume on your bridal gown or even decor.

Charleston Wedding Inspiration: Golden Yellow

With daffodils and tulips blooming everywhere, it’s easy to be inspired by spring’s sunny disposition.  Golden hued yellow is such a lovely color palette choice, whether you keep it clean and bright, pairing it with crisp white, or whether you like a more amber color paired with stormy grays.

Charleston Wedding Inspiration: Spring Pastels

Comments: 0

Spring is peeking through in pale blue skies and soft pink and yellow blooms, so naturally we have pastels on the brain.  A pastel palette works beautifully when one hue is paired with a bolder color or a metallic, or go ultra-femme and group your pastels with lace.

With warmer weather just around the corner, we’re thinking pretty spring picnics.  So today we’re bringing you gingham inspiration.  From the quaint picnic blanket to the elegant wedding tablescape, gingham can be just the right print to mix in to your color palette.

Color Me Beautiful: Statement Veils

A bride’s veil is one of those details that can truly make a statement on a wedding day.  Cathedral veils hearken back to the most formal, royal weddings and are just timelessly romantic.  Blushers in polka dot or edged in lace are flirtatious and sweet, while a Juliet cap veil is feminine with a bohemian edge.

Charleston Wedding Inspiration: Winter White

va wedding

It may not be snowing in Virginia quite yet but with parts of the country receiving their first bout of chilly weather, we’re dreaming of winter whites.  A snowy backdrop can be beautiful for a wedding, but even if you aren’t expecting snowfall on your wedding day, a wintery mix of whites, ivories, and creams in a variety of textures can evoke the beauty and glamour of a brisk walk through the snowdrifts.

70′s Inspired Glam

Comments: 0

wedding charleston

The bohemian trend has been around for a while, but right now we are more drawn to that 60′s/70′s glam – the more polished, colorful side of things.  Dramatic cat eye makeup, long sleeved gowns, hair with big volume, and oversized floppy hats are all inspired pieces to incorporate into your wedding.  Keep things fresh by adding modern details and choosing a clean color palette.

Winter Fur

If you are planning a winter wedding consider adding something to keep you warm. We love the idea of a vintage fur to keep you from shivering on your special day. There a variety of styles to stay cozy (and glamorous!) such as coats, capes and stoles.
