Days of Summer Wedding Inspiration

summer love inspiration

The concept for today’s sweet styled shoot started with a conversation reminiscing about the lazy days of summer as a young teenager – lounging by the pool dreaming about boys, secret excursions, and stolen kisses under the sun. Photographed by Ryan + Jillian of  With Love & Embers and styled by Sparkle Motion Decor, there are so many fun details from this shoot for you to be inspired by! I’m loving the retro feel of the pool scene (inspiration for a laid-back engagement party, perhaps?!) and wait until you see the colorful tassel garlands decorating the swings at the end of the post! Here’s even more from Jillian about the playful concept:

Reminded of the days when we were limited to the confines of our neighborhood, unable to travel further than our bikes could take us, we wanted this styled shoot embody how we all felt during this time. Using iconic items like candy necklaces, mixed tapes, and jellies to make the dream sequence of our shoot feel reminiscent of our past, it was a true trip down memory lane.

Super in love with the flurry of paper hearts strung from the trees! This would make such a cute backdrop for your ceremony, photobooth or even desert table!
