Oh my goodness- isn’t this wedding from Jillian Mitchell a breath of fresh air?! Really, could this bride be more elegant and modern? She looks as if Jackie O has just stepped out of the 50’s right into 2014 (today would have been Jackie O’s 85th birthday by the way). We were instantly enamored with her bold patterned Dior skirt, paired with a classic set of pearls. And her groom is rocking that white dinner jacket. These bold choices together created a most elegant and fun aesthetic for their wedding day.
Saipua’s floral designs are seriously to die for as well, and Jillian Mitchell did such an amazing job capturing the gradations of color and texture used in the decor. They took a space that was already stunning and amplified the beauty by 1000 by adding lush greenery garlands, large arrangements, and trees on the tables. We just adore how they brought the outside garden in for this exciting and lovely reception.

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.
