The Oster Wedding: Pinterest.Vintage.Perfection

23 Apr

The way we met Jennifer was very similar to the way she met her now-husband, Anthony- online! When we met with Jennifer and Anthony for the first time outside of cyber-space, we knew that we just had to help them plan their wedding! It was too original and perfect not to! Not to mention, their style, chemistry, and our connection to them were undeniable and we were happy to help their dreams come to life!

Jennifer is also a wedding professional (Photographer/Owner at Gallery 29 Photography) so we knew the stakes would be high! She has such an eye for the artistic and small details, it was going to be a match made in wedding planning heaven!

Brides, planners, and future husbands alike may find themselves searching Pinterest for wedding inspiration. We love when brides come to us, iPhones in hand, Pinterest page pulled up, and have a wedding “theme”! Pinterest can sometimes be overwhelming and stressful for brides but when you stick with your idea and theme, The Oster Wedding is what you get! This wedding was deliciously pinterest-y, vintage, DIY, and just all together perfection! Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I’m going to stop talking and let her pictures speak for themselves…..

Excuse the pic quality (from our iPhone), but this was the head table at the reception. Don’t you just love the idea and feel of an Art Gallery Wedding and Reception? It was so unique and amazing!

Simple, Mason jars adorned with flowers made by the Groom’s Mother, tied with ribbon. Set atop gray and white table runners made by the Bride!

We used these to line the aisle for the ceremony and placed them on the table during the reception! This is a perfect way to get the most “bang for your buck” with flowers and centerpieces!

As you see, this bride had a clear vision and she really went for it! She used birdcages on her tables, birds on her cake (wait till you see it!), and the ring bearers carried birds nests!

Dreaming of a White Wonderland (Wedding)-Pic Heavy!

3 Dec

Good morning Belles!

I’m sure many of you always dreamed of your perfect wedding as a child. Big white dress, flowers every where, Prince Charming waiting at the end of aisle. For me, I’ve always dreamed of having a winter wedding, all white full of snow and crystal! Alas, as we sit in 75 degree weather here is south Louisiana, I realize that dream is never going to happen. Since we always want what we can’t have, let’s day dream about the wedding we could never have.

Here are some beautiful all white winter weddings, snow and all, that Two Belles is currently obsessing over:

Starting with the ceremony, these bare white branches bring you into a fairy tail. They immediately set the occasion and mood, and you feel as if you are walking into a wintery forrest.

And of course, bridesmaid without fur would not suffice! How cute is this! Cute and functional, can’t beat that!

On to the reception: A winter wedding is the perfect time to go over the top with flowers and crystals! There’s no such thing as a casual winter wedding and this gives you permission to go as over the top as you want! Imagine walking into a room like this! What bride wouldn’t die over this?

Reception filled with flowers! I die.

And just because you can’t go this over the top doesn’t mean you still can’t be fabulous! More shots of  “simpler” table decor:

So, what if an all white winter wedding isn’t what you’ve always dreamed of? Maybe your taste is a little differnt (in a good way). Baam! Black and Gold Winter old Hollywood style wedding. A black and gold themed wedding is sophisticated but has just enough playfulness to keep from being stuffy. I’ve loved this style for a while. The bride that goes for the black and gold wedding is stylish, classy, and possibly a huge Saints fan. We love it, let us know if you love it too!
