Romantic French Garden Shoot Featured on Inside Weddings

Have you always dreamed of an elegant garden wedding, yet now that you’re in the planning process, you find yourself gazing longingly at on-trend boho-chic designs? This styled shoot featuring two of our gorgeous gown is sure to inspire brides who want to blend different décor elements into one beautiful day. “This photo shoot was derived from a sense of the Victorian era, with the focus on elegance and a touch of lace, lush flowers, and fine accessories,” explains Debbie Liaw of Aquafuzion.

"The model bride, wearing a boat-neck gown in French Alençon lace with a satin-organza skirt, sits on a lovely vintage settee while looking straight out of a Victorian painting. “The dress is an ideal choice for a bride who is looking for a classic, but elegant look,” says Grace Pei, owner of the JINZA Couture Bridal boutique in Los Angeles. However, the lush, oversized bouquet – composed of peonies, scabiosas, tweedias, clematis, clovers, smokebush, and seeded eucalyptus – that the model holds showcases a bohemian style. The model groom wears a classic tuxedo, but his scabiosa boutonniere reveals a less-traditional slant."

Memoirs of Romance Featured on Inside Weddings

We love this vintage glam tabletop from Luxe Linen's LUXE Launch 2016 designed by Charis Events and Avant Garden! Click HERE to see the original feature on Inside Weddings.

"When building a table for the launch party that celebrated Luxe Linen’s 2016 line, Grace Song of Charis Events & Design wanted to start with a solid base. “The inspiration began when we fell in love with two of their newest linens – ‘Creation Natural’ and ‘Cashmere Iridescence Dupionique,’” Grace explains. “[They created] a very romantic texture that played a tremendous role in our tabletop.” She notes that her team desired to match the elegance and historical concept of the venue while adding a bit of glamour into the design. From this idea sprang forth the name of the tablescape, “Memoirs of Romance,” meant to represent its propensity to linger in a viewer’s memory."

Romantic Vibiana Inspiration Featured on Inside Weddings

Vivian Anne Delpilar and Pamela Joy Augustus of Love Anne Joy Design & Events worked closely with photographer Steve Torres to produce a classic, timeless aesthetic for the styled shoot they had in mind. “When Vibiana was secured as the venue, we knew we wanted to ensure that [its] ornate architecture and sophistication translated through every vendor, piece, detail, and shot,” explain the pair. Natural light from tall windows bathed the space that boasted fluted Corinthian columns, frescoes, marble features, and dark hardwood floors.

The bride entered the main hall reception in a two-piece gown crafted with off-white silk shantung lining and a French Chantilly lace pullover from the new JINZA Couture Bridal 2016 collection; a beaded and crystal sash accented her waist. Her relaxed coiffure revealed dazzling dangle earrings and was completed with a handmade gilded hair comb showcasing a floral motif. Plum leaves and greenery punctuated her garden bouquet of white blooms. The groom was dapperly attired in a three-piece tuxedo. His unique boutonniere resembled a petite version of the nosegay held by his beloved.

Vintage furnishings composed the sweetheart table against a magnificently carved Parian and Carrara marble backdrop. The couple took a seat on chairs with aged gilded frames. Two decorative options were presented on the white console table with brass accents. The first was an arrangement that echoed the bride’s pastoral bouquet in an urn. The second was a grouping of taper candles in varied gilt candlesticks accented by a leafy strand.


Place settings were inspired by the colors of the cerulean envelopes showcasing gold patterned linings in the invitation suite. Matching the tone of flatware, golden chargers with ornate rims provided an exquisite frame for pale blue dinner plates, napkins, and dessert plates with a florid gilded design. In keeping with the style of the invitations, names were elegantly written in grey ink and accented by a tree branch graphic on ivory place cards.


A different look fitting for alfresco celebrations was also displayed. The bride strolled the courtyard garden clad in the “Carla” design from the JINZA Couture Bridal 2016 collection. Its sexy silhouette featured a floral lace bodice and embellishments on the off-white silk crepe skirt, as well as a plunging back. Her hair fell in loose waves and ruby lipstick provided a striking finishing touch. “Having JINZA Couture Bridal on board made dress selection so easy because they immediately understood the look and feel we wanted to portray,” note Vivian and Pamela. “The intricate details of the dresses were a clear reflection of timeless elegance.”

Deciding on an all-white palette foundation allows you to be creative in incorporating a myriad of accent colors – from soft pastels to vibrant hues – on your big day. Take a look at the large library of real events on our weddings page for more inspiration.
