Country Glam Engagement Party and Rehearsal Picnic Inspiration

Kunbi O / Friday August 16, 2013
Hold on to your hats ladies! Today’s beyond gorgeous inspiration shoot is filled with glitzy details and rustic charm bound to blow you away. We’ve been seeing a lot of inspiration for the big day but how about the events leading up to it? The folks at A Monique Affair created some serious gorgeousness for an Engagement party and a super chic Rehearsal picnic. There’s a little bit of country, a little bit of super glam and a whole lot of gold all wrapped up in an awesome vintage bow- be inspired!

The absolute romance of picturesque vineyards is one of the reasons the wine country inspires me so much. In this dream, I envisioned taking some of my most trusted vendors friends and creating a country-vintage environment like one you’ve never imagined. We achieved this effect using a romantic combination of mint and gold as our base colors, with hues of red to highlight the color possibility of mint.

We offset the table setting using delicate gold crusted china. We added a touch of country leisure by staging an elegant rehearsal picnic lounge. Our reception table was arranged using the perfect items made available by Hartmann Studios. Our favorite element of the shoot has to be the effect created by a country setting infused with a little glitz and glam.Not to mention that gorgeous amethyst engagement ring that deserves at least a minute of your admiration. We also love the versatility of the color mint when paired with gold, and with subtle hues of red which allowed us to pack two color effects into one shoot. We hope you’ll take a minute to enjoy our country-vintage wedding dream.

To play up the country glam they paired elements of gold glitter linens with gilded vases and glittered bottles.
A highlight of the shoot stars the gorgeous three tiered cake Marla Erojo of Cakes Made by Me created, a geometric masterpiece too pretty to eat.
The Rehearsal Picnic..
Gosh We’re in love!
