Retro Candy Love – Fun Wedding Ideas from the Candy Shop!

For the couple who loves candy + sweets, I thought this retro shoot was just so sweet + fun! Love the bright, happy colors and her button necklace – how cute is that? The most gorgeous florals also – kind of obsessed with the orange bouquet. Thanks to Janie at The Bride’s Cafe for sharing this with us (and creating that GORGEOUS bouquet) and to Katelyn James for her lovely photos!

  16. @Mira Hey that is me in the shoot and my dress! Im so glad you like it! It is by pronovias. We got married in 2009 but you might be able to find that style still? Maybe a previously owned site? Hope that helps!

  17. Lauryn- do you happen to remember the name of the style? I’m completely smitten with this dress! My wedding has a similar color scheme planned. Thank you for the inspiration!

  18. Hi, Fabulous pictures! Did the sweet shop also provide the labels for the candy buffet?
