Vibrant Garden Wedding Inspiration

garden inspired shoot

There’s probably nothing prettier than a garden wedding, but sometimes it seems like garden themes are synonymous with pastel color palettes + overly-feminine elements. Well, the team behind today’s lovely styled shoot wanted to break that mold and design a vibrant setting that incorporated tomato red hues, bold black-and-white stripes and stylish touches of metallic gold. They also found a way to beautifully incorporate arthropods (<– the prettier way to say ‘insects’, you guys!) into the design plan. So genius! Hats off to photog Kimberlee MillerOrange Blossom Special Events + The Little Branch for making it happen!

Iceberg Proposal in Iceland: Kara + Kevin

Iceland Iceberg Proposal

Kara + Kevin met through a friend in college and carried their relationship through life in three different cities – Kara in Seattle, Kevin in Denver, then Sacramento. Many flights and late night phone conversations finally came to an end about a year ago, when they both moved to San Francisco. They spent their first year together exploring + photographing their adventures around much of the U.S., but their biggest adventure yet was a trip they were planning to Iceland. They both had travelled to other countries, but this was their first international trip together, and they were excited about it to say the least. Deciding that it would be fun to document their journey, they invited their close friend, Karen Obrist, who also happens to be an amazing photographer, along for the ride. But what Kara didn’t know was that Kevin was also planning to propose during their visit to Jokulsarlon, a picturesque glacier lagoon complete with floating icebergs and home to arctic seals!

How fun to have such killer memories from such a special journey. We love that at this point Kara still didn’t know what was about to happen…

Modern Metallic Wedding Inspiration

Modern Metallic Inspiration

While we’re pret-ty sure we’ll take metallic details anyway we can get ’em, when paired with modern design elements in a stunning, rustic space seems like the best possible outcome imaginable. For this amazing editorial, Sara & Rocky Photography teamed up with Sweet Pea Events to design a minimal + airy wedding scene in the Dallas area’s newest stunner of a venue, The White Sparrow Barn. What they created, with the help of Blue Lotus florals, is truly a dream. See for yourself below…
