Emily, head of my Social Media, discovered this lovely shoot that we both found a lot of inspiration from. The attention to details is spot on, and Red Heels Events really added such personal touches. Per Emily, "Fall is officially here, although you wouldn’t know it in LA! Autumn is the best time of year, welcoming changing leaves, crisp weather, pumpkins, and all things apple."
All the small details of this wedding really showcase the beauty of Fall. The ceremony and reception had traditional fall colors like deep oranges, rustic yellows, every shade of brown and small hints of blue throughout. Accompanying the fall color palette were beautiful rustic elements like whisky barrels, birch trees, and the natural splendor of the barn itself.
The bride’s bouquet was a stunning arrangement made by Skeeter Parkhouse in Grand Haven, Michigan. Michelle from Red Heels Events said “I was BLOWN AWAY by this bouquet that Skeeter from Eastern Floral did for us. The amount of depth, color and texture incorporated in it was breathtaking.”
The flowers are common, yet exotic. They used thistle, coxcomb, roses, mini calla lilies, and hypericum (coffee bean), with touches of wheat.

Thank you Emily for finding this gem, and to Michelle for sharing!

This out-of-the-box wedding took place at the Ritz Carlton in Atlanta, GA. I loved looking through the little details. The use of pink and black, traditionally feminine, was pumped up by their punk details, making this more funky than I'd expect. I asked their photographer Nadia D, based now in New York, for a bit of background on this wedding. Lets find out what she had to say!
Per Nadia, "Both passionate motorsports enthusiasts from New York, the couple met through racing. They liked the idea of having a traditional, elegant wedding but wanted to incorporate an edgy twist to make it their own and show off their outgoing personalities. After a beautiful Jewish ceremony, the reception that followed included a lot of details that highlighted their love for racing including custom art on their printed materials, naming the reception tables after famous racetracks and a huge 2,800 horsepower racing turbocharger as the centerpiece for the escort card table."
I love the structure of this bouquet-- textured, modern, and with a shape. Usually we see these type of flowers (roses, orchids, astilbe) used in a traditional round shape. I love the color combo of the magenta, pink, purple and white. It's constructed really well! Flowers by Tulip in Atlanta.
How cool is this cake topper?! So badass! Above, the bouquets are used to dress the cake table, which is a common thing to do. The linen really makes the cake pop and brings masculinity to the pink and white cake.
These boutonnieres are super fun. The accents really spice up normally bland callas. And how about those ring holder below! So cool!
Thank you so much Nadia for sharing. I love how crisp your photos are! Cheers to beautiful photographs and a prosperous rest of the year!
