This wedding has a beautiful waterfront ceremony overlooking the Baltimore harbor and an industrial boho chic reception at the Frederick Douglass Museum in Baltimore. Feminine elements of swathes of greenery and florals of soft and light color tones in bohemian design added an earthy bohemian flair. The beautiful Baltimore wedding was photographed by Nikki Schell Photography.
Her dress was a beautiful champagne colored Jenny Yoo Gown. The gown features a strapless sweetheart neckline with embellished with beaded appliqué of english ivy and silk organza. The bodice was a fit and flare silhouette that complements the feminine modern bride. The bridesmaids wore an assortment of blush chiffon Jenny Yoo dresses that, some boasting a soft floral pattern. The bride had a Man-0f-Honor who wore a light grey suit with a blush bowtie to match the ladies.
The groom and his groomsmen went for a traditional black tie look. They all looked incredibly dapper in their property fitted suits.
The invitations are simple and clean. Torn edges and thick paper stock are the modern take on romantic bohemian style. The paper boasts a simple floral design and romantic oversized script font.
Their ceremony was absolutely gorgeous with a beautiful arch, the view of the Baltimore Harbor. The altar was composed of brass and wood, decorated with florals flanking both sides of the pointed arch. Wood chairs were placed along the pier creating an isle and lending to a farmhouse feel while overlooking the iconic Baltimore Inner Harbor. The couple wrote their own vows, which made every single person shed a tear.
The reception space is a mix of historic Baltimore and Industrial chic. The space boasts worn brick, exposed warehouse style ceilings and large windows that overlook Baltimore. The site was styled with hanging greens, long farm tables which were overflowing with greens and flowers. The color scheme was classic white. The texture comes in from the mixed florals and greenery and the historic industrial elements of the space.

History & Founder’s Story
With 25 years of experience in the beauty industry, Eunhee experienced a significant lack of natural wellness products on the market. Eunhee taught herself herbology and chemistry, with a focus on natural botanicals. This was driven by her sensitivity to products used in cosmetic and salon products and the knowledge that many products we use are toxic and creating more harm than healing. Through this process, she discovered a variety of natural botanicals that heal and rejuvenate the skin. Clients often asked about healing remedies for burns, bruises and other injuries to the skin. Eunhee was able to dramatically improve their healing with products that she had created for herself. She became passionate about sharing her knowledge and creations with others and, thus, established Solluni, a beauty line made with vegan, gluten free, cruelty free and organic ingredients. In 2018, Eunhee opened a salon, also called Solluni, which features all of Eunhee’s proprietary hair products in a toxic-free environment. Products are available for purchase in store and online.

This Christmas wedding inspiration shoot gives us all the inspiration for a beautiful and elegant holiday wedding. This real life couple celebrated their marriage with this styled wedding, even including the bride’s sister as a bridesmaid. Designed by Heather Misner of Atwater Lane and captured by Ashton Kelley Photography, this Liriodendron Mansion holiday wedding reminds us that holiday themed weddings can be incredibly feminine and high end while still featuring the beautiful elements of the holiday season.
The bride’s elegant style’s tone is set for a formal affair with a dress that features a sweetheart bodice, an asymmetrical organza skirt, and floral sequence accents. She’s wearing a gold choker with a single diamond pendant. Her look is completed with an up-do that features a soft side sweep bang, a hip length veil, and red lip to bring in that pop of traditional Christmas color.
Having the groom wear a black tux coincides with the formal feel of the overall wedding. The red tie brings in the beloved Christmas color that’s featured throughout the whole wedding.
The bridesmaid’s look features a sequined open-back red dress. The floor-length gown fits the evening affair. Her hair is finished with soft curls and a side braid.
The bridal bouquet features all of the florals that you think of when you think Christmas. White calla lilies, red roses, evergreen branches, light peach roses, and holly berries and leaves. The mix of flowers creates a textured bouquet full of whites, reds, and evergreen.
This elegant wedding inspiration stays with the traditional colors of Christmas – red, evergreen, gold and white. The beautiful and elegant invitations feature this Christmas color theme. Peach and Paperie‘s calligraphed invitations feature gold script and watercolor pine tree accents. Golden wax sealed the envelopes giving the suite a thoughtful finish.
The welcome boxes are offered to guests that stay overnight or come from out of town. These boxes were created by The Welcoming District . These boxes stay with the winter theme offering carefully curated blue spruce scented candle, holiday-themed matches, holly tree coasters, a pine needle ink printed tea towel and a gingerbread bar of soap. The elements in these boxes are thoughtful and high quality ensuring guests will remember and enjoy the contents.
The Ceremony Space
The outdoor ceremony space overlooks the bare woods creating the feeling of winter. A geometric copper pipe archway defines the ceremony space. The archway is partially covered in evergreen branches and the sides accented with dark green flower vases full of poinsettias, evergreen branches, baby’s breath. Laying next to the vases are white birch wood logs. We love that evergreen, birch and traditional winter florals are included in this space.
Place Card Mantle
Guests can find their seats by use of the freestanding mantle. Adorned with two fur stockings, gold lanterns, white cranberry branches, wrapped presents and a welcome sign. The mantle continues to set the tone for the holiday-at-home vibe. The place cards hang from the middle of the fireplace on a red string and feature calligraphic names and watercolor floral accents. We love the uniqueness of this element for their wedding day. Say goodbye to boring tables and say hello to this stunning mantle!
The Cake Studio created two cakes for inspiration. The main cake features a tall two-tier cake with a clean white fondant. It’s finished with a collection of pine needles, holly leaves and a light peach rose.
The second cake is a one tier cake. It mirrors the first cake with fondant design but only features pine needles and cranberries. The cakes are complimented by chocolate covered “present” desserts, a mix of vanilla and chocolate cupcakes, an almond tart and star sandwich cookies.
Everyone loves dessert, so this does not disappoint. An additional dessert table features cupcakes, petite fours, and cookies displayed on clean white trays and cake stands. They are accented with all the elements of the holiday: cinnamon sticks, holly berries and poinsettias.
Of course, no wedding inspiration would be complete without a cocktail addition, which comes in the form of a Rose with a skewer of cranberries. Wooden tables and signs are adorned with holiday plates, and champagne with cranberries. Bottles of Rose keep in line with the color tones of the season and are corked with Christmas tree stoppers!
Rustic wood sweetheart table is swathed with pine boughs, brass candle holders and an oversized table runner . A gold trimmed formal place setting reminds us that this is an elegant affair. The table is complete with a white lace runner which has been placed at the front of the table and left to drape off the sides. The runner is covered in fresh pine branches, holly leaves, poinsettias, and tall candelabras. Each place setting features a pink cut crystal glass and a gold leaf napkin ring (can I tell you how much I love these napkin rings!!).
Say goodbye to the traditional elements of most styled shoots and take a look at this creative and edgy styled shoot. The style is bohemian rocker meets millennial artist and it was held at Main Street Ballroom. This was photographed by Emma Dallman and it features two different bridal looks, luscious florals and rich color tones. We are excited to bring this funky styled shoot to you.
This non traditional design was provided by Blush and Swoon. The stationary has torn natural edges with soft watercolor hues along the left side. The names are not centered, but featured in the bottom left corner. The stationary is styled with an untraditional gold ring that plays host to a red ruby.
First Bride’s Look
Our first Bride is wearing a slim fit bridal gown. The spaghetti strap dress is simple with a cross strap in the front. A lace Applica on the bodice is the main focus of the dress. Her make up features a red lip and a dark neutral eye. Her braided updo is finished with wavy side bangs.
Second Bride and Groom’s Look
The bridal gown is a low cut lace dress. Her hair is down in very loose waves and her makeup is natural tone. Her look is completed with a hunter-green brimmed hat.
The groom is wearing a two-tone brown suit. Dark brown pants and a tan jacket complete with black shoes. His green and white patterned tie is the focal point of his attire and coordinates with the bride’s hat. His look is finished off with a pocket square.
There ceremony space focuses on the use of the iconic white barn doors and chandelier of Main Street Ballroom. Victoria Clausen draped Italian ruscus in an asymmetrical form to create a natural feeling.
As always, Victoria Clausen brought her A-Game to this styled shoot. Two separate looks for each bride, a boutonniere for the groom and a centerpiece for the sweetheart table were created.
The sweetheart table’s crescent floral display is made of a mix of tropical and traditional flowers. Using bright pink roses, white laceleaf, spotted orchid, yellow orchid sprays, and a mix of greenery.
The first bride’s hand-tied bouquet features deep rich tones and a wide variety of florals. Orange ranunculus, rust orange roses, green celosia, and yellow cockscomb celosia and allium bullet, to name a few of the key players.
The second bride is holding a large crescent bouquet. This bouquet brings in all the flowers from all other locations throughout the shoot. Plus some large tropical leaves.
Cake Sweetly Entwined used three buttercream colors and a rustic technique of icing to create a dramatic simplicity. Styled with a grey cheesecloth and slate ribbon finishes off this reception focal point.
