There are just so many details to love in this inspiration board – the track lighting in the ballroom reception venue, the delicate tulle on the Samuelle Couture gown (seriously, how amazing is that picture?!), classic heirloom pearl strands, the ‘barely there’ pink hue of the drinks, the single rose bridal bouquet, white calligraphy escort cards, and the stained glass artistry on the wedding cake.

Ballroom weddings, when done right, are absolutely magnificent once-in-a-lifetime fairy tale kinds of events!

  1. I am in love with the Samuelle Couture gown, perfect choice for a ballroom wedding in a Grand Chateau in France

  2. That cake is incredible! So lovely.

  3. That track lighting is awesome. Kudos to whoever designed that. I’m obsessed with Samuelle Couture’s gowns. There is nothing else like them. Same for Maggie Austin’s cakes. I wanted one so badly for my own wedding, but I would have had to buy the cake its own plane ticket across the U.S. That’s pretty much where my husband drew the line.

  4. I adore that watercolor cake! Beautiful and muted, but still lovely detailing!

  5. That ballroom is fantastic – so grandly decorated, but still soft and light!

  6. I love the overall feel from this board. And that dress?! IN LOVE.

  7. This is absolutely gorgeous. That cake is amazing and the dress is beautiful.

  8. So so pretty – ballroom weddings are super elegant. And, I love how the track lighting actually looks like pearls.

  9. Gorgeous. That cake is the most beautiful I’ve ever seen!

  10. Love this…and that cake is amazing!

  11. I’m absolutely crazy about the work of Sam Beasley and Maggie Austin so you already had me hook, line and sinker from the start – not to mention this soft, neutral palette is absolutely dreamy! Altogether, very alluring and sophisticated inspiration.

  12. In love with the artsy wedding cake so beautiful!

  13. So so dreamy!

  14. Hand painted cakes are truly an art! I love the intricacy and detailing that each cake takes. I must say it was a nice incorporation of color with a neutral color palette!

  15. That cake is awe inspiring. Stained glass is tricky enough, but to do it on a cake – wow! And, yes, the dress is to die for 🙂

  16. Oh this is soooo so dreamy!
