Today we bring you an inspirational Al Fresco wedding with lots of details and bright colors. Here is what the photographer had to say:
“Our love story begins with two people. Regardless of gender, love exists and it is powerful. In our industry, the driving force behind any wedding is love.
The colors and vibrancy of the styled shoot were inspired by details only experienced during long spring and summertime days. Al-fresco, in a lush rose garden, enveloped by the day’s glory –
The wooden furniture provided the perfect canvas for the tablescape, which included bright cobalt blue vases filled with bright pink garden roses, tulips, ranunculus, sweet peas, azalea and of course, bougainvillea. Additional accents among the table included a colorful woven runner, contrasting napkins and gold chargers. A lounge area was created with the same design concept and included a fun rug and bright turquoise cushions to carry on the alfresco style. In lieu of a full dessert bar, we opted for a Sweet and Salty Bar, which surrounded the beautiful cake. And of course, a signature drink, the “LGBTini”, a lemonade ginger berry tea. Custom orchid place cards completed the table décor.
The ladies each have their own style – one sweet, one edgy. For the ceremony, the gown is delicate, ethereal, and pink. Her bouquet included a vibrant pink pallet, full of garden roses, tulips, sweet peas, peonies, ranunculus and azalea. Perfect for a blushing bride. The gown for the reception is form fitting, ultra feminine and a little sultry. To compliment the look, her bouquet is the opposite of the first. It has a strong dose of cobalt blue delphinium, surrounded with spiked blue thistle and purple statice.
Finally, what would a day in the outdoors be without a few adorable pups? The cuties joined the festivities and were even pampered with their own beverage and snack station, which included chicken and bacon flavored water, and doggie treats.” explains Holly from Cakes & Kisses.
