It’s no secret how much I adore color! With my heart craving warmth and summertime, I just had to share some of our summer inspired florals! This ultra-fun styled shoot was inspired by showcasing the beauty not only in the architecture of sky line but also in the way nature softens its edges and colors outside the lines of that architecture.

It’s easy to find inspiration in landscapes, rolling hills, and giant stretches of a skyline. It’s much harder to find beauty in a concrete jungle. You have to look for it and be grateful for the creeping vines on buildings and the artist that creates a mural for the enjoyment of people he or she will never meet. With the help of some of my favorite vendors, I was able to highlight the vibrancy found it Atlanta’s Living Walls and embrace the color and life of street art we walk by everyday.

I remember when Nicole first came to The Seed Studio I was totally in love with her color palette. She wanted every shade of pink I could get my hands on with accents of blue berries and sunny yellow. As if that wasn’t enough to make me swoon, she loves peonies and ranunculus just about as much as I do and also let me sell her on the crazy notion of an asymmetrical wedding arch. Nicole and Dan’s wedding was classic but whimsical and beautifully captured by Rustic White Photography.

Enjoy this bright but romantic affair with fluffy blooms, sweeping landscapes, and one of my favorite ceremony backdrops to date.

It is in the dead of winter that my heart most longs for adventure. The idea of slipping away and seeing the world just feels warmer.

This past year, I embarked on a cross-country road trip from Atlanta to Seattle. I had never had the desire to see the West until I actually saw it. I was overwhelmed. The colors that I had always thought were contrived were suddenly right there painted in sunsets and landscapes. It was breathtaking every single day of our eleven day trip. When we reached Seattle I was so inspired that this shoot was an outpouring of that inspiration. I joined forces with my amazing photographer cousin, Becca Blevins, (We are located so far away from one another that I had never had the privilege of working with her!) and some talented vendors from Portland.

This shoot was inspired by the sense of adventure in all of us. The sense of jumping in a roadster with the one you love and forgetting the consequences. Call it frivolous. Call it foolhardy. That is love in it’s purest form. It is an adventure of trust.

Here is a sneak peek of what is to come this year from our newest designer, Bre Garvin!

“As the newest designer for Juli Vaughn Designs, I knew I wanted to showcase bright, cheery colors in first solo styled shoot. Vibrant colors are a signature of our style and I drew inspiration from the state in which I first fell in love with color—my home state of Arizona.

Growing up in Arizona I was encircled by the warm hues of sandstone and the brightly colored Southwestern Native American designs. I love the patterns and motifs and the way they pop against the natural landscape. Using Papago Park as my background and a few Southwestern jewelry pieces from my mother’s collection, I feel like I captured what Arizona beauty is to me. It is wild and glorious and yet comforting.”

I must say this year was incredibly full of wonderful memories and eye opening experiences. For starters, I decided to expand my business and move to New York, went on a cross country road trip with the love of my life, was inspired by the classic charm of France and Italy, and am currently in Merida, Mexico designing a wedding at the most amazing hacienda. It has also been a year full of meeting new clients and vendors, collaborating with talented friends, and growth both personally and professionally. I have felt overwhelmed and exhausted in many ways but overall am stunned by this year in the most beautiful way.

As we enter 2015, I want to share some of my favorite finds. I hope they will bring you equally as much joy as they have brought me this year! This is a collection of Art, tunes, flowers we have loved, some twinkle for your toes, and booze because well, booze. Run your mouse over the image to find the link.

Cheers to 2015! May it hold new dreams and fabulous surprises and overflow with flowers. Always more flowers.

Whether you are at Monday Night Brewery for a couple of beers or a lot of beers – you are bound to have an incredible time! Throw in food catered by Sun in My Belly, a cake by Sweet Cheats and popsicles from King of Pops and you have yourself a perfect combination! We absolutely loved working with Allison and Kevin and are excited to share their special day with you!

A little message from our beautiful bride:

“We wanted our wedding to be “fun casual chic,” my fiance is a big beer nerd, so we decided to get married at Monday Night Brewery in West Midtown, Atlanta. We loved the strung lights on the patio, which continued inside the venue, to give the whole space a glow as we were getting married and partying into the night. Juli made our wedding amazing, she completely captured my vision of a casual chic night by creating ombre flowers, full/fluffy/low centerpieces, and even bringing in vintage salad and dessert plates to adorn the tables while the guests filed into the reception. Juli also made a ribbon backdrop for us to get married in front of, which enhanced the foliage outdoors and gave us a pop of color. I loved how she accentuated details within the reception space, such as making a mustache and SMOOCH talking bubble on the fireplace mantle, and adding an “MMM HMM” sign above our cakes. All of these details were perfect, and our guests commented on how great they were.

Working with Juli and her team truly made our wedding better than we envisioned. It was like she jumped into my brain, figured out exactly what I wanted, and made it come to life. All of our guests complimented the attention to detail that was paid, and Juli is the reason for that compliment. ”

Lindsay and Ben are two of a kind – sharing a love for the city and for the outdoors. When Ben proposed (via Scrabble board!), Lindsay couldn’t have been happier. Together, over the duration of their engagement, they made 1000 paper cranes out of brightly colored paper – which they later asked me to use in their wedding décor, along with mercury glass and a limited selection of flowers. Flowers are my favorite, of course, but sometimes choosing just the right florals and keeping them small makes for a big effect!

Since Lindsay and Ben were after a city wedding, we agreed to keep the colors very simple – a neutral background (gray) with pops of bright yellow – and of course their beautiful cranes! Summerour provided the perfect backdrop for this wedding, bringing a sense of the sleek and modern to Lindsay and Ben’s day.

I hope you’ll love all the special touches in Lindsay and Ben’s wedding as much as I do!

Get ready for one of the sweetest weddings you will ever see! Lauren and Kyle share that rare type of love that even strangers can feel. A love that lasts a lifetime; that radiates through their wedding photographs by Andy Brophy.

When I first met Lauren I quickly found out that she was very family oriented. Very rarely does a bride come to a consultation with both of her parents and Lauren did. I could tell right away that they were not only super close, but kind and gracious as well. They wanted Lauren’s wedding to be a memorable night for all family members and friends to enjoy.

Lauren and Kyle drew most of their inspiration from nature. We started with an organic concept full of greenery and neutral colors and added in a little touch of glam with mixed metallics.

I know you will see the authenticity and overwhelming love in these photos- just like Lauren and her sweet family.

Enjoy!
