It’s always been very important to me to strike a balance in the content we offer on Once Wed. Don’t get me wrong…I love a beautifully done photo shoot just like the next girl, but if none of the details are relevant or attainable it falls into the eye candy category which doesn’t help you much when your trying to plan a DIY inspired wedding. Some elements from this shoot might be too out of reach for some, but everyone can collect old wine bottles and spray paint them or gather milk glass from local thrift stores…
Our head table background is a white on white painted Chevron pattern with a mix of gold tone hammers and nails, milky ropes , fawn and honey colored ribbons, wispy strips of golden tulle, gold rick-rack, natural twine, and glass orbs filled with sugar cubes and wheat grains. The perfect blend of feminine textures, avant garde utilitarianism, and earthy details.
The table scape is moody vintage meets modern happily ever after, a perfect juxtaposition that embodied John and Yoko. Old jeans and untamed hair yet driving a white rolls royce. Ghost chairs are divinely invisible allowing the textures of the design to be the showcase. Ivory burlap draped across the table brings in the feel of bohemian simplicity. Gold rimmed champagne glasses from a flea market filled with peace and love cookie favors (Bittersweet Treats), mod-white square dinnerware from England, and vintage gold flatware make up the varied place settings.

Last bit of inspiration coming up next!
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.
