Last Sunday was The Inspired Bride event, at the Intercontinental Buckhead. This event is one of my favorites all year, because it brings the best Atlanta vendors together and allows them to pull out all the creative stops to show how to turn inspiration into gorgeous reality. This year’s theme was fashion icons, and our designer was Valentino. Valentino is known for his signature red, lace, sophisticated sultry glamour. So how do you turn that into wedding decor?

Check out the entire Valentino inspiration board here on Pinterest.

Let’s start with this amazing cake, by For Goodness Cakes. I adore how the bottom looks like a classic Valentino dress. How do they make it look like fabric?? And these sparkly poppy designs on the top? Holy cow.

Let’s take a look at the ceremony. Gorgeous background filled with floral details, and a candle-flanked, runway-style aisle. So dramatic and modern.

Jan McBee of La Fete was seriously inspired when she designed this romantic, dramatic tablescape. I especially love the lace gobo on the black drape.
