You might have already seen this wedding recently here and here on Ruffled, but after seeing Jess and Mike’s wedding last week on Heather Waraksa’s blog I couldn’t resist posting it on Once Wed as well. I have such a soft spot for small and intimate weddings. There is just so much love and happiness beaming from the images below I knew it would be the perfect bit of inspiration for any couples out there considering eloping or a city hall wedding. Plus, how amazing is the bride’s vintage wedding dress and shoes?

I love her whole look! Kind of a hipster/vintage bride with a very natural vibe. Photography is amazing too – really captured the intimacy of the whole thing.

Gorgeous and so intimate!

Reminds me of shots from a Sophia Coppola movie, So hazy and dreamy. Simplicity is so beautiful!

Proof that extravagance doesn’t compete with personality!

I love the photos, so pretty. They truly capture this couple and at the same time they look like they jumped out of a fashion mag.

Featured Simple Wedding Inspiration from Nature

We always think the most beautiful inspiration for weddings comes from nature. After all, Mother Nature has done a wonderful job, hasn't she? In today's featured editorial, the creative team elected to work with a very simple, pared-down palette of green and brown, both usually found as the base colors in nature. Highlighting the beauty of these natural tones caused them to push the bounds of their creativity, resulting in a beautiful combination of simple, natural designs with a modern aesthetic.
