Romantic European-Inspired Wedding Ideas

Finding inspiration in your surroundings is the best way to create a truly cohesive and organically-styled wedding, and we simply love how A &B Creative interpreted the European-inspired buildings in Carmel. If you’re looking to create a beautiful atmosphere for your wedding, we suggest taking a few cues from A & B Creative and play off the venue you’re working with. Mimic textures, colors, and an overall aesthetic in your decor and florals, and we’re sure you’ll be happier than if your decor contrasts against the natural feeling of your venue.

Here’s a little bit from Rebekah of A & B Creative:

I feel so blessed to live somewhere with such diverse surroundings. In this session, I chose locations that would match the mood of Sarah Seven’s gowns, which are timeless and stunning in any myriad of locations. By traveling to Carmel, the shoot felt as though we were transported to a Spanish village. And just a short distance away at our second location, we again were able to feel as though we were strolling through a town nestled in the Mediterranean.

Styling such beautiful pieces in an equally breathtaking location was a dream. I chose, and was blessed to work alongside, a dream team that any bride would be lucky to have by her side during the planning process. Melissa Hoffman created natural looks that felt as if they may have been achieved on a summer in Madrid. The Twigss team, as always, made the most gorgeous and sumptuous florals that truly smell as good as they look and Jessica Burke continues to amaze me with the beauty she captures so honestly in each of her dewy images.
