So many elements make for a perfect spot to dine, mingle, and gather with loved ones. This time of year always makes us excited for dinner parties and excuses to stay in for a beautiful cozy dinner. This seat, once that glass was filled with wine, was the perfect mix of cozy and elegant.

We were up in the mountains over the weekend and the autumn colors busting within the aspen trees was so so gorgeous. Every year fall is a reminder that time does indeed fly by and the years go by so quickly. Totally ready now to let go of summer and embrace that crisp air, shorter days, and crunch under our step. 🍁🍂 This wedding design screamed autumn moodiness in the best possible way. | Vendor team:: Floral & Rentals @yonder_house Photography @rouxby_photo Day of planner @cherry_bomb_events Venue @lyonsfarmette | #banksandleaflove #elevatedgatherings #fallwedding Featured on @greenweddingshoes

Photographers; we invite you. This image came from a collaborative effort to bring peace & rejuvenation to our lives while staying inspired & creative. This October, in gorgeous upstate New York with @carriekingphotographer, we strive to achieve the same. Our last retreat with some of our favorite wedding professionals brought together so many different personalities, professionals in different stages of their career, and all with different strengths. But one reigning fact remained true. All guests were kind, supremely talented, and value community. This time we are inviting photographers near and far to learn from the very best and while you are at it, enjoy some yoga, meditation, ny pizza, and quality time with others in this crazy cool industry. | For more information, head to Carrie’s page and join the party. Limited spaces available. ✨ Retreat vendors partners: @carriekingphotographer @pearlandgodiva @richardphotolab

The antler chandelier was not a rental. This was a piece the bride wanted incorporated that belonged to her family. We loved that while the overall design was white on white, elegant, and romantic, there were elements that intertwined the very rustic location which was on the family’s ranch. And that head table! ✨vendor team :: @theperfectpetal @seedhousephotography @eventrents @designworksevents #elevatedgatherings #banksandleaflove #headtablegoals

Crushing hard on this image from @lauramurray of such a sweet ceremony set up. An arch created by @coricookfloraldesign at the entrance of their aisle so the bride could have a more grand entrance to her soon to be husband. A low semi-circle floral piece to showcase the views behind them. The semi-circle was built large enough to encircle not only the bride and groom, but the entire bridal party, to represent the couple’s focus of bringing together the ones they hold most dear to their hearts. | @premier_party_rental @tlazy7_weddings @lauramurray @coricookfloraldesign #banksandleaflove #elevatedgatherings #maroonbells

Design Discussions: When looking back on these details, we love reflecting on where the ideas came from and why they were meaningful. We thought sharing some of these stories about our design process more regularly would give these images proper depth and more insight to how B&L works with our clients and vendors. ✨
The escort wall was created to reflect the location James proposed to Kristi; Portugal. They also enjoy to travel and areas in Europe they love were brought up often during our planning. These elements became our foundation for many details throughout the overall wedding concept.

So, with the tile design @jolieandcompany created for their invitation’s envelope liner, we carried that design over and had it printed on stone tiles to use as escort cards. We wanted the wall to represent the side of a beautiful European home with venetian plaster texture and one of those old quaint arched windows. The talents of @new_collar_goods created/built this concept flawlessly, and the florals from @coricookfloraldesign added that final homey touch.

Thankful to have clients that tell their stories and trust us to run with them. And, thankful we can work so closely with talented vendors (artists, really) who help us give these stories a life on wedding day. It takes a village, but it starts simply with a glass of wine, a conversation, and a notepad. | Photography @lauramurray | Tile Printing @rockymountaintreasures | #banksandleaflove #elevatedgatherings #designdiscussions

Vows with a view. An unbelievably breathtaking view✨We adored the concept of putting an arch at the entrance of the aisle and low statement florals at the ceremony to allow focus of their stunning backdrop. | Florist boss @coricookfloraldesign | Photographer boss @lauramurray #elevatedgatherings #elevatedgatherings #weddingceremony

Each image from this wedding holds a story to be told and was so perfectly captured by the lovely @lauramurray. We thought it best to start at the beginning; The invitation suite. The first glimpse to guests of what to expect when they arrive on that chosen wedding date. This suite, by the very talented @jolieandcompany, holds the story of a couple engaged in Portugal with a love for travel, food, & adventure. Who have roots in the south. And a bride that loves shades of blue and texture. All of this can be found if you look closely. Little secrets tucked in that maybe only the bride & groom (and luckily, us) will know. But that’s the beautiful part of it. #banksandleaflove #elevatedgatherings | bosses 🥂@lauramurray @jolieandcompany @coricookfloraldesign

The team that brings together a wedding day is a thoughtful compilation of individuals that make the special intricacies of a couple come to life, in all different forms. It’s a truly magical job to be a part of and we always feel so proud to witness all of the talent shine. Just wanted to take a moment to thank all of the vendors we have worked with thus far and make sure you all know how much we appreciate your skills, your hard work, and your passion for your craft. | vendor talent :: @tarabieleckiphotography @theperfectpetal #banksandleaflove #communityovercompetition #elevatedgatherings

Looking forward to some restorative peaceful weekend vibes. #banksandleaflove #restoreyoursoul #terracotta | vendor love: @lauramurray @keepfloral @yonder_house_studio

It’s the time of year we start mourning the the fact that summer is ending soon and fall is around the corner. These hot days of melting ice cream and long summer nights remind us of those carefree times as a child. But alas, life keeps moving. Although...we do ADORE fall. When it arrives we will welcome the cooler nights, everything pumpkin, leather booties, and these sexy moodier weddings with open arms. #banksandleaflove #elevatedgatherings | @rouxby_photo @yonder_house @annabebridal @lyonsfarmette @cherry_bomb_events
