There is something pure about the art of simple elegance in wedding details. A subdued approach that is not necessarily over the top, but stunning when it all comes together. For brides who are not the type to "over theme" this little gem with Jack & Grace Events and Carrie Wilcox Floral Design will strike a chord. A jewel toned one at that with an organic flair in hot pink and purple hues contrasting with soft blues for one cheerful and summery color palette. The inspiration? The rich history of the Wainwright House nestled among exquisite gardens, trees and lawns. The perfect jewel as a backdrop that reveals waterfront views across the Milton Harbor on the Long Island Sound. George and Claudia Photographers capture the scene bringing forth the allure of its natural aesthetic and showcasing the art of simple elegance in wedding details for brides to take a cue and find their inspiration.

Art of Simple Elegance in Wedding Details

We also love when a team of industry professionals find a real couple to be their models for the day. Meet Maggie and Jack who have known each other nearly 11 years and share a passion for sailing. Growing up and sailing together at the Cedar Point Yacht Club in Westport, CT. They still share their enthusiasm for the water with beach time and playing with their labs. Maggie wears a stunning Reem Acra gown from Jessica Haley Bridal with a sophisticated bridal style and skirt that is meant to bellow in the wind. Perfection for and outdoor wedding ceremony at this particular location. Mix and match Bella Bridesmaids dresses work seamlessly. One in a soft muted tone and the other in a fresh floral fabric print, each complimented the color pop in the bouquets with the fuchsia ribbon tie off. For a bride who prefers the non-theme the mix and match styling works fabulously allowing her tribe to let the dresses reflect their own personal style too. To set the tone for this tranquil styled shoot and focus on the art of simple elegance in wedding details, the Wainwright House becomes central to the inspiration. Jonathan Mayhew Wainwright who fell in love with the chateau de Raincheval in France brought back his own vision with a perfect replica for friends and families to enjoy in New York. The result is an incredibly beautiful stone mansion overlooking the water, complete with lovely sunsets. Wainwright House is known as the oldest non-profit, non-sectarian holistic learning center in the United States.
