Pastel + Geometric Wedding Inspiration

pastel inspired wedding

We heart all things pastel. And all things geometric. So combine the two, and we’re so all about it. The Nolans – Wedding Photographers (a husband + wife photo team based in Arkansas) had a vision for an indoor editorial filled with fun gold geometric shapes and a soft, romantic vibe. They teamed up with Magnolia Belle Floral & Design to execute their ideas at the Dreamland Ballroom – an old music theatre in downtown Little Rock that is currently being restored. Choosing colors + textures to complement the aged ballroom – the pale dusty turquoise floors and multi color walls of brick, aqua and peach – an unexpected + beautiful scene came to life, perfect for inspiring couples dreaming of a wedding with a utopian feel.

Homespun DIY Paramount Ranch Wedding: Lindsay + Patrick

Paramount Ranch Wedding

Lindsay + Patrick took the term DIY to a whole new level with their fun, handmade wedding at Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills, California. They crafted the wedding favors (adorable little jars filled with jam), fun flags for their guests to wave as they walked back up the aisle, utensil holders for the tables, bunting that spread across the entire reception space + so much more. Aside from being beautiful, their day was filled with all the things they love. And we think it’ll be inspiring for other couples who want to create a celebration with a similar, homespun feel!

Lindsay  says, We wanted our wedding to be about celebrating with our closest friends and family something so special – our covenant to each other. As a couple, we love people, the outdoors, & food! We had 250 friends and family, at a beautiful outdoor venue with oak trees everywhere, and ate some of the best bbq around! Patrick is great at building things- he made our wooden center piece boxes, the arch that we were married under, and all of the wooden signs. I love anything diy – so our 6 month engagement period was filled with making things for the wedding day…

Thanks so much, Kayla Adams, for sharing these gorgeous photos + big congrats to the newlyweds on a beautiful day!

When we had our first look - it was surreal finally standing together in our wedding outfits about to get married! We soaked in every minute we had during our first look- we couldn't stop hugging and kissing each other. For that moment nothing else mattered - we were in our own little world. It was perfect.

Think a DIY wedding sounds like a lot of work? Here’s some fun perspective on the topic from Lindsay, One of the best things about making all the decorations for the wedding is using them afterwards in your house! I saved all the bunting flags that were on the tables and hanging from the buildings to use for future parties, I had plenty of jams left over to keep giving people, all of the wooden boxes we saved and now use around the house for planters or decor, the deer antlers, the signs- the list is endless. there is so much we have left from the wedding that we now use!

It's a lot of work to put on a wedding- remember to include everyone you would want to be a part of the memories you'll look back on. It was super stressful for me trying to make everything and stay within budget, but what I remember most are the people who helped me get all the stuff done. I have great memories of such important people helping us for such an important day. Remember to not let the overwhelming parts of planning take over.. Your wedding day is about marrying your best friend and having your closest people around to celebrate that.

Signature Wedding Cocktails with BevMo!

DIY Cocktails with BEVMO!

It’s five o’clock somewhere, so let’s chat cocktails for a sec. Once you start planning the details of your reception, it’s time to think about which fun drinks you’ll serve your guests that will pair with your menu + the vibe of your day. But if you’re about as familiar with wine or bourbon as you are with the currency exchange rate, you’re in luck because BevMo! is here to help!

BevMo! offers one-on-one service, beverage ideas, and all the quality liquor, wine + champagne necessary for turning your wedding reception into the epic party you’ve always imagined. With just a quick email, you can schedule an appointment with a BevMo! weddings expert (parties{at}bevmo{dot}com) to get the process started, or to set up a complimentary in-store wine tasting. (Something we think is seriously just as important as your cake tasting, folks!)

To get the signature cocktail ideas flowing, we teamed up with Dan from The Whaling Club to share two ideas for refreshing cocktails that’d be perfect for serving at your summer wedding! The liquors used were not only mixologist-approved, but can be found at your local BevMo! (or delivered to you directly) for an affordable cost. An important detail to factor in since you’ll likely be serving quite a few cocktails when the big day rolls around. Let’s check ’em out…

Fresh Strawberry Daiquiri Recipe

Strawberry Daiquiri
white rum, strawberry, lime +sugar
2 oz white rum (We used Flor de Caña white rum from BevMo!)
1 oz fresh lime juice
3/4 oz simple syrup (1:1)*
2 – 3 whole strawberries

In a shaking tin, muddle strawberries with lime juice and simple syrup. Add rum, shake vigorously, and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a strawberry. Enjoy!

*simple syrup: In a pot add 1 part granulated sugar and 1 part water. Stir over low heat to combine ingredients.

TIP: Long before it made its way into the blender, this classic Cuban cocktail originally consisted of just three ingredients shaken to perfection: dry rum, lime juice, and sugar. We love to add strawberries to our daiquiris, but feel free to substitute your favorite seasonal fruit.

Bee Sting Recipe

Bee Sting
tequila, fresno chili, lemon + honey
2 oz tequila (we used Espolon Tequila Blanco from BevMo!)
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
3/4 oz honey syrup (2:1)*
3 – 4 fresno chili wheels

In a shaking tin, muddle fresno chilis with lemon juice and honey syrup. Add tequila, shake vigorously, and strain over block ice into a chilled rocks glass. Garnish with a dried chili pepper. Enjoy!

*honey syrup: in a pot add 2 parts clover honey and 1 part water. Stir over low heat to combine ingredients.

TIP: This chili-spiked tequila adaptation of the famous “Bee’s Knees” cocktail is the perfect pairing for barbecue or tacos. When slicing the fresno chilis, you’ll want to remove the chili seeds for a mild heat, and increase the number of chili wheels for an added kick.
