Bright + Colorful Wedding Inspiration

bright florals

Today’s vibrant styled shoot took place at Vaudeville, a gorgeous new venue housed in a historic building on Main Street in Fredericksburg, Texas. With a perfect mix of old world glamour + just enough rustic charm to make the space feel comfy, the restored three-story event site was the perfect backdrop for some bright + textural wedding inspiration, ideal for transitioning from summer to fall! Conceptualized + designed by Ellen of Westcott Weddings + photographed by Love, The Nelsons, this shoot is sure to inspire you guys big time! I’m majorly in love with the jewel-toned color palette, the beautiful ombre watercolor place cards propped up by quartz stones, and the beyond stunning bouquets + arrangements by Rosehip Flora. So many great ideas for you brides-to-be to pin for your big day!

The floral design included not only beautiful blooms, but lots of greenery + seasonal produce – like pomegranates – too! Layering all these elements is a great way to ensure your flowers have a fun + textural vibe.

The string light “wall” behind the bar is another super fun idea! Such an easy DIY + a great way to bring in some warm + pretty lighting…
