Bright + Playful Breakfast Wedding Inspiration

Though the idea of hosting a breakfast or brunch wedding is becoming a bit more popular, I’m still completely smitten with the concept!  This shoot, photographed by Jen + Ashley, is bursting with inspiration for a sweet + stylish daytime fete!  Here’s more from Antonia Christianson Events (who is based in Virginia Beach, VA + Paso Robles wine country in CA):

There is something beautiful + refreshing about bright white details with pops of color. For this shoot, we really wanted the flowers, gradient colors on the plates + fun silverware to pop off of the blank canvas. The food + beverage stations were my favorite detail; tasty + colorful food with a theme is always noticed by guests at an event! Sweetwater Cuisine hit the nail on the head + was paired perfectly with One Hope Wines.

Ladies, how amazing is this textural, knee-length Kirstie Kelly frock?! I’m always a huge fan of her gorgeous dresses. (See bits of another gown later in the post!) And in case you haven’t heard, Kristie has a “Borrow Me” program where she’ll ship gowns to brides all across the country to try on at home. Pretty great, right?
