You are going to fall head over heels for this eclectic and whimsical tented wedding from Maura Jane Photography. The mixture of Chinoiserie vases with wild local florals is breath-taking! The whole look turned their outdoor tented wedding into a wonderland of lush florals. Even the bridesmaids’ bouquets are as vibrant and unique as their dresses!
I wanted an outdoor, seated dinner wedding in beautiful scenery. Chris and I had been coming to Santa Fe for a couple of years and it felt right. I loved Asian blue and white vases and that really became the over arching theme. I wanted less of a Southern Living look and more of a chinoiserie feel. I wanted more natural organic flowers, sticks, pussy willow, etc. I wanted vivid colors to make the blue and white vases pop. We loved that La Posada was so central, our guest could walk out of the hotel and easily access the plaza. The lawn was perfect for the seated dinner I had imagined.
I visited several boutiques to find a wedding gown. I tried on numerous gowns but just was not finding anything I loved. I sought out Nardos, a couture dress designer in Dallas and she created a custom gown for me. It was the perfect mix of classic and elegant but sexy and fun. Chris’s Tux was a designer tux, he is very into fashion and loves wearing more edgy looks. He found a Thom Browne tux, Gucci slippers and then changed into Nike sneakers and a Nick Fouquet hat.
One of my favorite parts was seeing the tent come to life.After 2 years of planning, I was able to see my vision and it was exactly what I had imagined. The tent was truly breathtaking. Floriography was our florist. I had a very specific vision in mind. They used all local flowers and went above my expectations. The florals blew away everyone! I had men coming up to me telling me how gorgeous the flowers were and they had never seen anything like it. We had rich reds, pinks and oranges with sticks and stock mixed in. It was so whimsical.
My sister Gloria who is a senior in College designed all the stationery. We worked together to create something unique. We had some trial and error but the end products were beautiful. I really wanted to incorporate moss into the florals. I found these cool moss numbers and our wedding planner A Beautiful Theme helped make them into table numbers. We collected all the vases in the wedding. Some were family vases others we found at vintage shops. The head table had custom napkins that were gifted to the bride after her engagement.

We love when weddings take inspiration from the art world! This shoot from Olivia Hatfield Photography, inspired by Art Nouveau painter Alphonse Mucha, is an absolute dream. The details are modern meets vintage. With an iridescent wedding gown, ethereal painted backdrops, and lush florals, it is hard not to fall head over heels. The color palette of mauve and plum is utterly romantic and a fit for any season.
The inspiration shoot features many key elements to attract an artistic bride who is looking to use texture, whimsy florals and pops of color. This was inspired by Alphonse Mucha, an Art Nouveau painter who celebrates the female figure by using beautiful colors and amazing floral elements. Alphonse Mucha was an Czech Art Nouveau painter. The majority of his artwork featured strong floral elements, organic fabric, pastel or bold colors all while capturing the beauty of a woman. I have always been inspired by his work. I love the color and how the female figure is intertwined in all the floral elements. The more I have looked at his work and the further I grew as a wedding photographer, his images reminded me more and more of a bridal look.

If fall is your favorite season, but you also love bold colors, have we got the inspiration for you. This vibrant take on fall from Weddings By Eccentricity, captured by Chelsey Black Photography, is stunning. The color palette of mustard, orange, and plum gives a fresh uplift on traditional fall hues. With hand-painted floral paper goods and floral print linens, the tablescape is a dream! And seriously, how cute are the ring bearer and flower girl?
Bold colors, happy and wonderful wedding party, vivid designs, paper, cake, and table all come to play at the gorgeous Shade Home and Garden in Vineyard, Utah! Fall has always been my favorite season, but since the wedding world has taken over the fall, I feel like it’s been pigeonholed into romantic, soft, and elegant weddings with deep rich colors. I really wanted to bring a fresh and bold take to the fall colors! At Eccentricity, we really like to create things we haven’t seen before, and we never shy away from color and eclectic finds, so we really wanted to bring together vivid and colored groomsmen apparel, and stunning bridal and bridesmaids looks. Mismatched mustard bridesmaids dresses, paired with sage green suits, with the groom in an incredible spectrum of purples featuring bold patterns, next to a show stopping dress. The tablescape and paper pretties we created all feature custom hand-painted artwork by us at Eccentricity. The watercolor florals of the invitation suite along with the modern calligraphy are the perfect first peek for guests to truly love and get excited about our vision.
