“I love this unique ceremony setup. Its very natural looking and gives off alot of transparency. I would love to find a bride who would step out of the box and try this!”
“I love this look for smaller, intimate wedding ceremonies. Engaging guests into a circle is so beautiful and intimate. I also love the combination of different pieces of furniture. This is a DREAM for a small winter ceremony.”
“Unconventional seating! I love when brides opt for shabby chic seating by mixing chivari chairs and small upholstered seating with throw pillows. LOVE this unique look – elegant and inviting for your wedding ceremony!”
“I love mismatched vintage chairs, sofas and settees as ceremony seating. Beautiful and comfortable!”

“A fall bouquet favorite… I LOVE the colors used in this bouquet.”
“As much as I would like to take credit… I asked one of my favorite local florists for the floral rundown in this bouquet! Textural hand tied bridal bouquet of white garden roses, “Camel” apricot roses, “Amnesia” lavender roses, purple dahlias, burgundy astilbe, white hypericum berries and bittersweet vine with berries all arranged throughout antique green hydrangea with dusty miller foliage throughout. “
“I have always loved the pale blue, medium blue mixed with peach and apricot. Against the darker shades in most autumn bridal dresses, it really makes a beautiful fall bouquet.”
“I love the unique combination of grey dusty miller and orange dahlias in
this bouquet. Perfect for fall!”
“I absolutely adore this fall bridal bouquet. The different shades of orange blend perfectly with the ivory flowers. The dusty miller is a beautiful touch as well.”
“I’m not sure whether I love this bouquet as a fall statement piece or because it is just so dang clever! The actual floral arrangement isn’t exactly my personal taste, but what I love is how the bouquet has a ribbon attachment which allows the bride to keep her bouquet throughout the ceremony. Ideally I’d want a small handle hidden to use while carrying it down the aisle, and then somehow do a quick switch allowing her to slip it on her wrist before taking her groom’s hands in marriage. Genius!”

What is your favorite hair accessory for a bride?
“Definitely a flower crown! I have always loved the bohemian yet elegant look of wearing flowers in your hair. I think this look is perfect for an outdoor garden wedding.”
“A long cathedral veil! Call me old fashioned but I really feel that the veil is what makes the bridal look complete.”
“I love hair jewelry on a bride. It is such a natural, not over done, look with a little boho to add some spice.”
“I love adorned fabric headbands that are left flowing at the nape of the neck. It is the perfect way to get a “veil like” feel without having an actual veil.”
“I love the classic 1920s veil on a bride. Very elegant and sweet! Throw in some feathers, flowers or pearls to glam up your look!!”
“I adore the floral wreaths and headbands that I’ve been seeing popping up everywhere. I think it is such a sweet and whimsical trend that makes me happy. The only problem is that it doesn’t translate as well for winter weddings. But how do you solve a problem like Maria? You wear a fall/winter foliage crown like Maria Von Trapp did in that amazing wedding scene from Sound of Music. I love the way that the costume designer paired a dramatic veil with a simple arrangement and think it would be a beautiful twist on a popular trend. “

What is your favorite way to decorate a ceiling at a wedding?
“This is my favorite ceiling treatment! I love nothing more then to swag and drape a ceiling, whether ballroom or tent, with a rich high-quality fabric that billows from side to side. Adding a chandelier will create an elegant atmosphere while adding ambient lighting.”
“I love the look of adding tons of greenery to the ceiling of a wedding reception. This would be perfect for a tented shabby chic wedding. “
“I love using specialty lighting! It can be so much more than a single color wash. There are a ton of designs that can be projected, thus making a truly cohesive event.”
“LIGHTS, LIGHTS, LIGHTS! Hanging lights are my FAVE! Lanterns, chandeliers, candles… any of these hanging lights in your decor creates a soft, intimate mood.”
“I just adore these beautiful magnolia leaves suspended over the dance floor, created by A Legendary Event’s floral department. What they did was hoist a horizontal trellis over the floor and then covered the entire 20′x20′ unit with leaves, then they projected lights downward to cast a real pattern on the floor. It’s absolutely magnificent!”
“I love bringing the outdoors into any space, whether it be woodsy or garden-like. Hanging trees, branches, florals or crystals from any ceiling is truly divine and unexpected. In my opinion, it surpasses anything you could ever do with draping! Mixing trees with floral truly allows the guests to escape into another land.”
“Floral ceiling treatments are my favorite! Maybe it’s because I’m a Colorado girl, but I absolutely LOVE bringing the outdoors in with a mixture of florals, greenery and lanterns hung from above!”

Arielle and Chris both lived in Atlanta, so a lot of the planning was done from afar. After many choices were considered, the couple decided TPepin’s Hospitality Centre would play host to their 250 guests. Arielle wanted a classic, elegant feel and had only one specific request… LOTS of candles! White flowers accented with gold vases adorned the guest tables. Each table also had an abundance of gold votives, tables and pillars. The bride’s wish came true!
The ceremony was held in the bride’s childhood church… the same church were her parents exchanged vows! Afterwards the guest continued their evening of dinner and dancing. When we say dancing… we means DANCING! The night concluded with a sparkler tunnel that ended with a Rolls Royce getaway car!

Let’s face it… wedding gift ideas are hard!
Find out the Chicks’ go-to options below!
“This is one of the coolest ideas, especially when the couple writes their own vows. GeeZees has a ton of options!”
“I love the idea of a new piece of luggage or cosmetic case with the couples new initials on it. It is something they can both use and who doesn’t love Louis Vuitton?!”
“I found this idea and I think its oh so apropos for “first time” milestones as a married couple. You purchase the wines and then order custom labels for each event. We found these on StudioBLabels.”
“Wedding invitation inside an ornament! This beautiful glass ornament allows the invitation to be preserved and displayed for years to come. Makes the perfect personalized gift for newlyweds!”
“Give the newlyweds a unique gift… a honeymoon basket/beach bag with the essentials for their lovers’ getaway!”
“I love monthly club gifts! What I really think is great is the Variety Club through Amazingclubs.com. You can customize each month with something different. The beauty is that it is customizable and YOU decide what they receive each month. It is a gift that keeps on giving for an entire year! The newlyweds can have fun trying out new things each month and you are remembered on a monthly basis for an entire year as a fabulous gift giver!”
“Honestly, I’m not a fan of giving clever gifts to the newlyweds, I always suggest sticking to the registry. They have already told you what they could use and would really love, so why not go for it? In case you’re unsure of where they’ve registered you can check TheKnot.com where there is a collated list of registries searchable by the couple’s names – super convenient!”

What is your favorite wedding table linen?
“I love the look of a mirror-top table with a soft linen skirt. The mirror adds glam to the look yet the blush linen softens it up to look more romantic.”
“I love this feminine linen from Nuage Designs. It has gorgeous appliqué flowers and a hint of sparkle. It fabulous when paired with a blush pink satin underneath. Even better… I get to use it in November!”
“My favorite linen comes from I Do Linens, Tamara made the tablecloth specifically for my clients based on a sketch I sent her. The couple used this for their cake table and it was a great way to showcase their favorite scripture and personalize the wedding in a completely fresh way.”
“I love WHITE weddings with a little SPARKLE! The little details in your table decor can make it sweet & special :)”
“I LOVE draped petal table linens. It’s a romantic and elegant twist on table linens.”
“Nothing makes a girl smile more than a little bit of sparkle! Although this gorgeous linen by Nuage Designs made its big debut a few years ago, I still just love it! “

What is your favorite fall style?
“In Florida we don’t really get a change of season, which means it stays warm and sunny until around Christmas! But I still love the change in wardrobe so this is my new favorite fall look for 2014!”
“My Fall Fashion Faves and must haves… A cozy scarf. Oversized sweater. Beanie. Leggings. Boots. Flannels. “
“Fall is my absolute favorite season for fashion! There are so many fabulous looks to love. Here is my favorite fall style: tailored coat, chunky sweater, flirty skirt, tights, ankle booties and a pop of color with that gorgeous orange clutch.”
“My favorite fall fashion trend is definetely oversized scarves. I love this look with a leather jacket, skinny jeans and booties. Anytime I am wearing an oversized scarf, I feel cozy!”
“I love warm, neutral colors for the fall. Being in Florida means I can still wear shorts and tank tops with tights or a scarf!”

In honor of Back to School, what is a creative way to incorporate apples into a wedding?
“Try using apples as a side dish for your salad or entrée. Baked apples cooked in cinnamon and brown sugar was a staple in my house growing up and it would translate onto your menu beautifully for a light and refreshing bite.”
“I love the look of using green apples as a vase filler for a centerpiece. It really gives a modern look that I love!”
“No one ever drinks their champagne during a champagne toast. Why not offer a caramel apple champagne? Be sure to have the glasses rimmed cinnamon sugar!”
“Back to school also means fall is just around the corner, and to many that means APPLE picking! One way to incorporate those delicious “Fall treats” into your wedding is to serve warm cider with a cinnamon stick!”
“One of the best ways to incorporate apples into a wedding is with an apple dipping station. Let guests relive their childhood by creating yummy dipped apples.”
“A creative way to incorporate apples is through your centerpieces. I love the look of apples floating in tall glass vases. It makes the centerpieces more interesting and adds a pop of color!”

The “First Look” is when the bride and groom see each other before the wedding ceremony. This is an intimate time alone with the most important person in your life on the biggest day of your life. Here are our top three reasons to consider a “First Look” on your wedding day. First, it is more romantic to see each other for the first time alone. This is a private moment shared between the bride and groom. Second, better photographs that capture the groom’s expression when he sees his bride for the first time. Third, more time to enjoy your cocktail hour and reception. Taking all the formal photos before the ceremony leaves more time for the bride and groom to enjoy their PARTY!
Need more convincing? These stunning “First Look” photos speak for themselves…
