Today’s laid back coastal wedding inspiration shoot was dreamt up by the team at Classically Lovely Events with the idea of vibrant color in mind, along with hints of tropical inspiration. They wanted to inspire brides to grab hold of their typical summer weddings and mix it up a bit with some fun, foliage and free-spirited decor – and we’re pretty into the setting they’ve created!
The photographer behind the beauty, Brianna Venzke, shares with us her favorite part of the day: The true gem was the lovely seafoam green vintage Volkswagen Photo Bus, the original photo booth bus from San Diego. These guys were incredibly gracious and really bring a special element to the wedding day, onlookers couldn’t stop gushing at the VS bus!
We’re pretty ready to be whisked away into this dreamy, coastal scene…what about you?!
Swoon, swoon, swoon for these peachy blooms! Brianna tells us, The crew couldn’t have come together more perfectly, Compass Floral created lush green and vibrant bouquets and centerpieces, overflowing with protea and tulips, a whimsical combination. We wanted to encourage Southern California brides to embrace a coastal state of mind with palm and pineapple profusion.
CC Vintage Rentals had the most beautiful blush glassware that really made the rose quartz and serenity shades come together on the tablescape. The incredibly talented Simply Jessica Marie created the invitation suite, hand painted envelopes and tropical place cards.
We doubt we will ever get over this VW Bus photo booth. THE most genius idea!
Loving all the textures in this bouquet, like protea, roses, astilbe, ferns and more!
A huge thanks to the talented team below for inspiring us with this lovely coastal scene today!
