Vintage Cape Cod Styled Wedding Inspiration Shoot

Captured by Luke and Ashley Photography on the shore of the gorgeous York River, this Cape Cod inspired styled wedding shoot gives off a distinctly vintage feel.  The soft palette and old-time feel begged for an intimate area away from the sandy beach and this location, with its scenic view of the river near Yorktown Beach, definitely delivered.  

A soft color palette composed of silver, pink and green compliments this intimately romantic wooded area overlooking the water perfectly.  The furniture looks absolutely stunning and gives an almost nautical feel - parts of the table and display cabinet are painted slightly off-white, and the portions not painted are crafted from a distinctive dark wood.  The bride looks beautiful in her vintage silk slip dress with classic draping at the neck and thin straps.  Go ahead and have a look at the sea of inspiration we have gathered for you today!

5 Head Table Wedding Decoration Ideas

The head table is the focal point of any wedding reception.  It surrounds the bride and groom and brings emphasis to the newlyweds.  Whether you decide to stay traditional with your head table decorations or go bold with a statement piece, don't leave your head table to the last decorating decision.  This is your chance to make your wedding decorations shine.  Your head table should tie together the overall theme of your wedding and set the tone of your reception. 

1) Signage

A bold statement that is trending with couples.  The use of signage as a statement piece for the head table is a simple and effective way to bring attention to the newlyweds.


2) Family Style Seating

Family style seating is the ideal way to provide an intimate atmosphere for guests to mingle and make conversation.  With a family style head table, this relaxed setup also allows the bride and groom the chance to sit next to their close family members instead of just the members of the wedding party.  Be sure and seat the members of your wedding party next to their spouses or dates to ensure everyone is comfortable and relaxed.


3) Sweetheart Table

Take a breather from all the mingling and thank yous with this intimate set up.  Sweetheart tables are making a swift comeback at wedding receptions and give the bride and groom a chance to steal a few moments together alone.


4) Hanging Focal Points

Nothing screams romance and elegance more than hanging wedding decorations.  While it may not be in the budget to hang decorations above every reception table, using them just above the head table is a more affordable splurge.


5) Dressed up Chair Backs

For those sticking with a traditional head table setup, you can still set the bride and groom apart by dressing up their chairs with decorative chair backs.  This will put the focus on the newlyweds and add a personal touch to the reception decor.

Rustic Elegance Fall Wedding in the Catskills

Jamine and James set off to create an amazingly fun, family-centric celebration - and goodness, did they deliver! You can just feel their joy radiating from the photos of their special day, skillfully captured by Sherry Sutton Photography. It was quite the action-packed day for guests, with the wedding ceremony in New Jersey and the reception about two hours away in the Catskills of New York.

Their touching wedding ceremony was held at the bride's home church amidst all of their family and friends. Jamine walked down the aisle with her mother and father, looking beyond beautiful in her mermaid-style lace gown. The smile on the groom's face is priceless when he sees his bride coming towards him. After a bubble-send off these newlyweds and their guests headed off to their tented outdoor reception. 

The fall-inspired reception was held on the groom's family property, where they had transformed a wide open field into a wedding venue with gorgeous views! They brought in a large white tent, tables with linens, a bar, DJ, and portable restrooms to cater to guests. The groom even custom built a trellis and fire pits as a wedding surprise to the bride, which brought her to tears when she saw them. The bride's family is Latin, so the evening was filled with Latin music and dancing - and lots and lots of love and laughter.

After the sun went down, the fire pits were lit and everyone made s'mores from the kits the bride and groom had made for their guests as favors.

Traditional Mexican Themed Wedding in San Diego

Mexican weddings give true meaning to family, togetherness, and tradition.  When Christy and Jose's wedding graced our in-boxes, we were so taken with their vibrant and fantastic details.

Christy and Jose tied the knot at the romantic Saint Francis Chapel, owned by the Museum of Man in Balboa Park, CA. These two love family and wanted to focus on a traditional Mexican themed wedding.  They did not disappoint.  I mean, the live mariachi band at their ceremony is above and beyond fantastic.

Keeping with any traditional Mexican wedding, both the bride and groom's families helped tremendously with the wedding details.  Their reception was held at the Mission Bay Women's Club and the groom's family cooked all the food. Their vibrant heritage-inspired decor was the perfect backdrop for a fun and lively reception. Everything was done on a budget, and the couple and their families did such a great job in making their wedding vision come true.  A huge thank you to Brit Jaye Photography for sharing this beautiful wedding with us.  The day was definitely one filled with joy, family, love, and laughter.

We adore Christy and Jose's unique seating arrangement idea that incorporated Mexican Loteria cards.  Such a great and unexpected addition! The vibrant, heritage infused styling of this wedding really pulled together the feeling of tradition, family, and commitment.
