Romance surely was in bloom for this floral-inspired wedding design from LK Bridal Studio. A stunning painted canvas of peonies from Castle Walls served as the perfect ceremony backdrop framed by dreamy pale-pink-hued florals crafted by Surroundings Events & Floral. An elegant beaded gown from Premiere Couture and a light pink suit paired with a floral-patterned undershirt from J. Robert's Menswear were both fitting for the theme of the occasion.

Soft pink tones inspired the beautiful stationery and signage pieces LK Bridal Studio artfully designed for the affair. From a delicate invitation suite to layered menus, and beyond, every detail was coordinated to perfection. With rental items from Event Essentials, Velvet Rentals, and Melody Rose Designs, the ceremony, reception table, and lounge area spaces were brought to life with elegant pieces big and small fitting for a light, bright, and polished party. 

A white two-tiered cake intricately decorated with floral and pearl detailing from Mai Lara's Bouqcakes stood as a central focal point on the reception table, while their equally impressive flower-inspired cupcakes accented the table decor. Continuing the floral theme of the day, peony-shaped lollipops from Lily's Magical Treats offered a gorgeous and delicious take-home favor for guests to top off the pretty-in-peony celebration of love!

Inspired by the funky and dynamic details of Velvet Rentals' Celestial Chair, Fest Paper and Design creatively coordinated a colorful and quirky wedding look perfect for couples with a playful style! Vera's House of Bridals fashioned two bridal looks in distinctly different, but equally dramatic, styles including a statement-making pale pink tulle ballgown and a dazzling fit-and-flare dress embellished with all the sparkling details fit for a celebration under the stars.

Comfortable and unique ceremony seating was comprised of an array of furniture pieces from Event Essentials and Velvet Rentals, all pointing attention to the couple in front of an impressive wooden sun backdrop to say their "I dos"! Color-blocked floral designs from Cosmic Gardens flooded the ceremony and reception spaces with bold, eye-catching, and texture-filled arrangements, while all the stars aligned for a modern cake design from Cowboy David's Bakery. Both their cake and Event Cups placed on the reception table artistically incorporated details drawn from the Celestial Chair's designs.

Fest Paper and Design craftily designed their innovative stationery and signage pieces to complement even more fun and funky elements from Velvet Rentals' chair, ultimately executing a visually impactful celebration from start to finish.

Calling all nature lovers! This woodsy wedding look, crafted by Melody Rose Designs, is the perfect blend of rustic elegance for those inspired by the beauty of the outdoors. DuBois Formalwear embraced the neutral tones by outfitting one groom in a creamy beige suit accented with a floral-patterned tie, and the other in their heathered, cappuccino-colored suit with coordinating brown leather shoes.

Instead of florals, Melody Rose Designs creatively adopted an authentic woodsy aesthetic, using plants, shrubs, and herbs of varying shapes and sizes to craft a greenery-filled atmosphere for the celebration. Utilizing woven baskets, mismatched wooden chairs, amber glass, wooden candle holders, chargers, stone dishware, and other neutral pieces from their vast rental collection, they intentionally used the natural tones and textures of each decor element to instill a warm and peaceful ambiance throughout the ceremony and reception spaces.

LK Bridal Studio artfully constructed stationery and signage elements fit for a forest wedding nestled in the Wisconsin pines. From their welcome sign guiding guests to the ceremony to an elegant invitation suite featuring soft neutral hues and a unique wood-resembling envelope, as well as coordinating place cards with a custom shimmering gold wax seal for added charm.

This one's for the foodies! Buck & Honey's brought a feast for the taste buds and the eyes with their individual charcuterie boards for each guest, while Craig's Cake Shop brought the sweetness with a white 3-tiered cake creation featuring horizontal ribbed detailing, embracing the simplicity of the day's design.

Here's to a lifetime of butterflies! Orange Door Weddings channeled modern whimsy with their new acrylic butterfly chargers, crafting a wedding design ideal for couples seeking an impactful and playful look for their special day. Sleek black rental items from Orange Door's collection, such as the dramatic Benito Black Backdrop, Modern Table, Black Sofa, Atomic Stars, and more, provided the perfect canvas for other colorful decor elements and bright, bold blooms from B-Style Floral to pop, creating an overall colorful and eclectic event design.

DuBois Formalwear dressed the groom in a gray suit accented with a white floral bowtie and matching pocket square, while Brandi's Bridal Galleria, Etc. fashioned the bride in a stunning gown featuring fluttering off-the-shoulder sleeves, a sheer bodice with exposed boning, and gorgeous floral and pearl embellishments along the length of the dress.

LK Bridal Studio embraced the colorful palette, butterfly theme, and acrylic details with their unique stationery and signage pieces, bringing even more whimsy to the day's design. From butterfly drink tags to 3D butterfly-themed signage, sleek acrylic table numbers, and arched acrylic invitations, they provided further playfulness and creativity to the celebration!

B-Style Floral brought the colorful, spring-inspired wedding vision to life with their arrangements of vibrant blooms gracing every corner of the design, altogether modern and full of life. Craig's Cake Shop crafted a delightful dessert display including a two-tier cake decorated with colorful palette knife paint strokes and butterflies, along with their innovative cake push-up pops and layered desserts. What better concept for one of the most transformative times in a couple's life than butterflies that represent transformation themselves?
