This spring and summer inspired wedding has Pantone’s 2016 colors of the year rose quartz and serenity blue along with Pantone’s spring/summer colors Buttercup, Peach Echo and Iced Coffee. The pastel color pallet is feminine and modern and fits several different styles. Details below from the amazing planner behind this shoot, Sarah Sofia Productions:
“The Historic N.S. Alexander Homestead is a beautiful wedding and reception venue, located just minutes from the heart of Charlotte, NC. Farm tables, vintage violent china, and gold chiavari chairs play up the eclectic and beautiful venue, and provide a unique setting. The design is inspired by various styles, such as rustic, vintage glam, and modern chic to complete the couple’s signature look! The Save the Date and invitation by Olive Paper set the tone for the wedding by giving guests a sneak peek of what’s to come.” Ariel Perry did an amazing job photographing this stunning shoot:
Succulents, glass filled flower boxes, over flowing blooms, vintage candle holders, and votive candles line tables making it feel intimate and romantic! Naked cakes are definitely trending in 2016, however, the new naked cake is the dirty iced cake and dripped cakes are also hot. Edible Art Cake Shop designed a custom dirty iced dripped cake with dripped caramel on the sides and top, adding flowers in the wedding colors for a pop of color.
Playing on the dripped cake, the custom popcorn from SugarPop’s Candy Store had dripped chocolate and caramel and was oh so good! Guests could enjoy a bag of popcorn or take it to go as wedding favor in these cute personalized popcorn bags by The Laguna Collection. Instead of a huge dessert bar, mini versions were served after dinner at a cookies and milk bar with the couples initials that A+C that also coordinated with the personalized popcorn bags.
Instead of a champagne bar why not pair with cotton candy and make a signature cotton candy champagne cocktail for your guests to enjoy! Everyone had so much fun feeling like a kid again and walking around with the cotton candy Champagne cocktail. The custom calligraphy signs for the popcorn and bubbly bar by LJ Designs add a fun loving element that you get from the couple!
“One of my favorite designer dress boutiques is Lula Kate for their fun colors and unique designs. I love how the four bridesmaid dresses coordinate with the colors of the wedding and very in style.The designer bridal gown from Hayden Olivia Bridal was a perfect fit for this wedding with the blush tulle and beaded top. Gone are the days where grooms only option is a tuxedo. Since the wedding is a mix of rustic, vintage and modern the groom opted for 3 piece linen suit that coordinate with the wedding colors.”
“Did I mention how fun loving this couple is? Your personality should shine through on your wedding! From the dress, wedding cake, flowers, first dance, to the food, it should reflect your tastes. While this wasn’t their actual wedding day, Amanda and Corey are a real life couple, who just got engaged, which made this styled shoot even more fun!” We wish nothing but the best for this lovely couple.
