Winter may be your very favorite season… congrats for finding the best where so many of us find weary grey days. But to celebrate your favorite season, why not plan a very unique wedding day! Alchemy Events braved the extreme temperatures of Alaska to bring you this extremely unique wedding idea, an ice cave wedding! Beauty really does hide everywhere. 

So cuddle up in a big pile of blankets as you admire the amazing colors and glittering lights at play in this shoot. And don’t forget to stop by the full gallery, it is packed with shiver worthy beauty thanks to Anne Marie Moran Photography!

Capturing Magic In Nature

Alchemy Events brought together vendors from around the country for a shoot in an ice cave inside the Matanuska Glacier in Alaska. We used opals as a nod to the famous aurora borealis of Alaska and although we were surrounded by snow and ice, we wanted to bring in those famous aurora pops of color. The jeweler provided $10,000 worth of opals and gold quartz jewelry for the shoot. 

The cake featured ice paper flowers and both she and the florist brought in some beautiful pops of color into the white and blue backdrop around us. 

The ring dish and vintage place settings both mimicked opals and the hand crafted invitations also picked up on those beautiful aurora colors that dance across the Alaskan sky.

Behind the scenes
We drove two hours outside Anchorage to the valley surrounded by mountains that the glacier sits in. After driving to the edge of the glacier, we loaded everything into sleds which were pulled by snow machines and went the last mile to the ice cave. Once there, we had to haul everything down into the cave ourselves and by the time we were done setting up, the clouds had rolled in and wind had picked up, cutting our shoot shorter than we would’ve liked. We got the model down into the cave then changed and started shooting. 

Temperatures were around -20 that day so even with frequent breaks & long johns under the dress, our poor model, Carolyn Layne, was definitely tested to the extreme for this shoot! We actually started to worry about her when she stopped talking and seemed less responsive so we bundled her up and rushed her back to an outpost on the edge of the glacier and put her in front of a wood burning stove to get her warmed up again. It was an experience of a lifetime for all those involved!

Organic Fall Garden Wedding Ideas

Move over Spring and Summer. We have evidence that these are not the only seasons fit for a garden wedding. In fact, these organic Fall garden wedding ideas are about to give what is known as “the wedding season” a run for its money. Treebird Photography has the pictures prove this case, while Design A Dream Events and Verzaal’s Florist transformed The Atrium by Ligon Flynn in Wilmington, North Carolina. Luscious Fall (and Winter) colors burst onto the scene with gorgeous floral that seamlessly incorporates all the natural wonder and organic elements of a secret garden setting – perfect for intimate affair. Adding to the instant mood boost is the behind scenes video that brings to the entire day into motion thanks to Cuff and Veil Wedding Films.

Organic Fall Garden Wedding Ideas

Tucked among the buildings in to the heart of historic downtown Wilmington, is the Atrium. One of the town’s few contemporary courtyard gardens originally designed with the philosophy to intersect people with nature. The area is filled with natural elements, local foliage, climbing vines, brink masonry and water combined with lines of modern architecture. The space was easily recognized by this team as a place to create magic with its open-air cathedral. A true hidden gem. It is deliciously draped in some of the most fantastic berry blended hues with greenery taking a major role. Each detail was executed with precision to help tell the story of the couple’s memorable journey together. A multitude of components blending into their vision with the whimsical elements of the venue. The extravagant ivy walls, natural lighting, and simplistic water features throughout play right into the organic Fall garden wedding ideas eloquently presented. Adding color and texture were next by using gold geometric shapes and organic components of greenery while incorporating red tones from a blush pink to merlot. Above all else, this styled shoot radiates classic and timeless love that surrounds a wedding day! It is a story that breathes life and inspiration into all the possibilities that can unfold in a wedding celebration.

Fresh Blush & Lavender Southern Wedding Ideas

The simple elegance of this southern wedding design was the perfect mix of simple, yet beautiful details that truly allowed the bride and groom to shine. The plantation style home surrounded by lush foliage and winding paths on the grounds of Wavering Place offered a beautiful setting for Meredith Jamison Photography to capture the beauty of this inspiration. The classic floral style crafted by Karin Jeffcoat from Cote Designs completed the elegant tabletop design, while the foraged foliage bouquet and backdrop added a natural organic feel that infused interest in the ceremony design. We loved the idea of having two bouquet styles that transformed the feel of the design in a subtle, yet impactful way. And from the bride’s form-fitting lace dress with sleeves from London & Lace, to the sharp navy tux from Granger Owings that the groom wore, we love how every subtle detail fit into the overall style for the day.

We hope you enjoy this intimate design that has so much beauty thanks to the the simplicity of it’s style!

Colorful Cultural “Dia de Los Muertos” Wedding Ideas

With Halloween celebrations behind us, and the sugar rush from the past few days setting in, we close out one holiday as another cultural holiday is beginning. “Dia de Los Muertos,” or “Day of the Dead” is a celebration of loved ones who have perished who they believe they will meet again. Where it is a holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, it is also a tradition held by may other cultures as well. With vibrant colors, traditional attire, and a play on “til death do us part” we absolutely love how this team pulled together such an inspiring design to represent this holiday.

We are absolutely taken with the gorgeous imagery captured by Rudy & Marta Photography, and the incredible detail in the design created by Modern Chic & Shabby Events. With the colorful floral style from Orlando Flower Market to the incredible hanging cake from designer Michelle of Bakers Cottage Cakes the culture and tradition of this celebration was truly brought to life with the color, detail, and style that was created.  We love the inclusion of  Sugar Skull models who whore traditional Mexican attire provided by Creaciones de Lucy, adding a fun element to the story of the day.

We hope you love how every colorful element of this wedding design came together!

We are thrilled to share more behind this colorful style that the planner, Modern Chic & Shabby Events shared with us.

During the ceremony, when reciting your vows, in many traditions you will say “Till Death do us part”. Our thought process when designing and creating this wedding style, was that Death is another sure thing in life. A bit crazy in our thought process for this design, but it was created to showcase two sure things, the Love for one another will never die. 

I love the way we handpicked every detail showcased. The vibrant colors played a key role in our design process, and we wanted to show the joy these colors bring to a celebration of Love with a flair of this tradition. We wanted Sugar Skulls to represent “till death do us part,” and we incorporated this motif throughout the design.
