Front Porch Farms Wedding {Ashley + Quinn}

Tips, tricks, and bargains – these are a few of our favourite things, all of which this wedding has in abundance.

Ashley and Quinn wed on the picturesque rolling hills of Front Porch Farms located just outside of Nashville, Tennessee, United States.

Their exquisite wedding had a lovely southern vibe {with tasty home-cooked southern food} and was captured by Wedlock Images, who had this to say…

“Get inspired by Ashley’s ‘do-it-yourself’ attitude. From the centerpieces to the bouquet, this crafty bride is the perfect example of how to throw a fabulous themed and detailed wedding on a small budget. You’d be amazed at how much Ashley saved by not only making her centerpieces and bouquet, but also designing and making her bridesmaid’s dresses and having homemade cakes and sweet treats instead of the traditional wedding cake.”

We especially love that Ashley discovered her gem of a wedding dress at a charity trunk show with proceeds going towards breast cancer.

We also love that the charming wedding favors were jars of homemade jam especially made by Ashley’s sweet grandmother.

Stockholm Wedding {Hanna + Corrie}

This couple melts our hearts. Plus, their wedding is pretty, posh and simply perfect!

Gorgeous Hanna and Corrie wed in Stockholm, Sweden. Their venue of choice was M/S Borgila and their photographers of choice were Isabelle and Emmi-Sabina of 2 Brides Photography.

The couple also picked a chic colour combination of “black and white with splashes of bright purple, pink, orange and blue,” explains Hanna.

Here’s what else we love about this wedding – the brides La Sposa wedding dress, the grooms suit, the colourful bridesmaid dresses, the darling bouquet, the napkin tissue pom poms from Miss Prop Shop, and the fun wedding banners.

Hanna recalls, “The ceremony in general was so emotional. We felt like finally everything we had been fighting to make happen was official and that our love had been strong enough to conquer all obstacles we had previously faced to be at this point in our life. One moment that was very strong was when we saw each other in church. Corrie was crying and we grabbed each others hands to walk the last steps together. At that point we really felt how right this was and how it was truly worth all of our struggles to be here.”

“Corrie’s speech at the dinner was also truly something special. It was so genuine and grateful and full of love and did not leave a dry eye.”

From the Couple:

What made your wedding unique?

“Our wedding was unique due to what it symbolized. Corrie being American and Hanna being Swedish, it has been a struggle to make this relationship happen, since we spent a lot of time apart with great distances between us. This wedding truly was a manifestation of love, as all weddings are, but we think the love and happiness that surrounded our wedding was really something extraordinary. We had so many people coming from all parts of the world to share this day with us, which truly set the international and loving spirit of our wedding.”

Did you DIY any details?

“We made copies of Hanna’s parent’s placement cards that was used at their wedding 26 years ago {yes, they are still married} and used them again at our reception.

We also made a sign for the church entrance in black and white and colourful ribbons that stated ‘Once in your lifetime you meet someone who changes everything’, which exactly describes our story. Corrie left his life in sunny California to come and live with Hanna in Sweden with all the difficulties and joy that brought.”

What was your biggest challenge?

“The biggest challenge was planning it while being in different countries. Hanna was in London for much of the time before the wedding doing her masters while Corrie was in Sweden. Besides that the biggest challenge was making sure that everyone understood what was happening during the ceremony and reception since we were using both Swedish and English as well as Swedish and American traditions.”

What’s your advice?

“Enjoy the day, feel the love you share and the love from everyone who are there to share your day. Live every moment of it.”

Cheers to the happy couple and thank you for sharing your pretty wedding pictures with One Stylish Bride.

Yellow and Grey Wedding Inspiration

The combination of yellow and grey is just so sophisticated. We think it’s definitely a winner.

yellow-and-grey-wedding-inspiration

The fabulous thing about yellow and grey hues is that they can be easily incorporated into everything wedding related, from your wedding ensemble to your reception décor.

But we’re certainly not the only ones loving yellow and grey. The colour combination has even caught the attention of bridal designers like Vera Wang, who now design wedding dresses in these hues. That’s not all – the options for bridesmaids and groomsmen are just as varied as they are delightful, and easily adapted to everyone’s taste.

Whether you choose a wedding gown of grey, yellow, or white, there are plenty of options for working shades of yellow and grey into your personal bridal look. Think jewellery, an accent sash, the right floral touch in your hair or bouquet – these are all easy and fun ways to accessorize your look.

So what shades should you use? We love the idea of pairing a pale buttery yellow with a charcoal contrast. But, we’re just as enthusiastic over pairing a bright or pale yellow with lighter greys, pewters, and grey-blues.

This colour combination is one wedding inspiration that remains trendy, season after season.
