Botanical Wedding Dream on San Juan Island

Robin's Nest on San Juan Island created these beautiful floral pieces. Flowers, leaves and stems plucked right from Robin's own garden were added to the pieces. These stunning and unique arrangements show the abundance and beauty of the natural vegetation in the Pacific Northwest.

Gown: White Dress

We see Quartz Rose. Bridal dresses with pale pink layers and tones. 3-D floral details, bare shoulders on dresses and sheer decorative ponchos layering over the top. We find variety in shaped and textures. Sexy boned corsets also charmed this years collections for the brides that dare.  A swing of floral eye stopper by La Tulipe.
We have incredible embellishment from Julie Schnoll Jewelry. She used vintage pieces and makes them modern. 

Bridesmaids dazzle in sequins. They sparkle all night and photograph like a dream.

The Pantone color of the year is Greenery. We have that in out green goblets but we went so much further. It's the mix not the match! Relics Vintage Rentals put together a virtual kaleidoscope of color for this one of a kind table. Tying in sheer Rose Quartz plates and popping with fresh blue and yellow. Delightful and unforgettable. They go beyond interest to unforgettable. Furnishing from Relics make every guest feel special. Vintage chandeliers make everyone feel a star. Flowers by Belle Fiori.

Our blushy tones and pinks whites and creams hold their own and used in small whimsical vases are playful on our table. Arrangements by Bella Fiori.

CAKE OR ART? Elizabeth's Cake Couture made our dreams come true. This cake ties in our pink and garden flower with a bogie fresh twist. I am in love. And of course it sits on a Relics Vintage Rentals treasure as only fitting!

Delish treats and salad from the Zilli Catering is bringing it at the Boerner Botanical Gardens. When they work with Relics Vintage Rentals gorgeous plates, bars and dessert carts the results are stunning.

A grand royal gown with embroiders flowers and a slim floating silhouette Tulip Dress from White Dress with sheer pink flowers gently collecting on the back. One of my favorites- a dress with so many layers of tool a small child could get lost in it.

Wind Swept Goddess

Makeup: "OOOoooh! Love this one! I like to match lips and cheeks, it's like a handbag-shoe thing for me. I used Ben Nye Creme Foundation in 'P-101 Light Auguste' on her lips & cheeks" - Maggie

Hair: "From a ponytail this look can be achieved easily with just a few good hair pins and some strong hold hairspray like Elnett. Start with the ends of the pony in your hand and wrap and roll around your fingers until you reach the head and secure where you like. Finishing styling with fingers….and spray!" - Gina

 NEW TRENDS IN HAIR

For this look hair Gina first used a fine tooth combs end to make a deep side part. Next to add more of a retro feel, back-comb the crown and spritz with Redken's 'Quick Tease Spray', gather hair into a low pony at the nape of the neck and secure. Tease the pony slightly for added drama and use your finishing cream, paste or stick to tame fly-aways.

Makeup

"The inspiration was to keep it clean and light. So I skipped foundation entirely and used a luminizer instead. I opened up the eye a bit using a white eye pencil in the bottom inner rim. I like Kevin Aucoin's white eye pencil because it's creamy and soft to apply into such a delicate spot"- Maggie

Products used: NARS Luminous Moisiture CreamCle de Peau concealer in 'Ivory'

Paige and Nick put so much thought and care into every detail of this beautiful wedding. Whistling straights made a perfect backdrop with golden grasses waving over rolling hills with a peek of lake Michigan at the horizon. Love the old hollywood style brides maid dresses and classic mens tux's with bow ties. They carried the gold into the reception with a custom cake by Delicately Delicious


Modern Table Decor

This beautiful table brings together clean modern lines with organic elements. This combination is warm and inviting in this beautiful penthouse at The Moderne.
Janelle at Evenement pulls a vintage table painted a glossy white with lucite chairs and table platform elevating gorgeous orchids and white new tulips by Esther at Impressions.. The look is grounded with two chocolate wing back chairs. Flatware in bone and luxe sheepskins contrast wonderful square plates. This look stands alone but also plays harmoniously with the vista. Guests at this event were enchanted. Great job ladies!

 


Cake Gems

Think a centerpiece to the room. These glorious confections are a decor statement as well as the grand finale to a wedding feast. Elizabeth's Cake Couture shows us embellishes galore with her one of a kind cakes. A faux cake creation gives the reception a wonderful focal point even if you're serving an alternative dessert.

Another big trend is watercolor wedding cakes. This modern use of washed color over the cake is a wonderful way to tie in the colors of the room.


We launch AG high style for the Milwaukee style obsessed bride with a shoot celebrating the summer of 2016!
