Watercolor Wedding Ideas

Such fun inspiration today for the artistic couple! Vince is an art history professor and Olivia is a painter. Maybe it was destiny’s unmistakable set up that they first met at an art exhibit. Both inspired by the abstract expressionist painter, Jackson Pollock, they frequented galleries or museums on weekends for the past two years they dated. Now for their wedding, they wish to re-create their passionate moments and their undying love for art + painting. The shoot was inspired by lots of gorgeous watercolors (in the paper details + cake) and Jackson Pollock (in the backdrop + macaroons).

Each table was labeled with an artist name. The Escort card/guest favor was a mini palette & paint set! :)

Love the watercolor painted cake and the Pollock inspired macaroons + mini cupcakes along with the hand painted dessert menu.

Anyone planning on incorporating any watercolor or other painted details into their wedding? Would love to hear about them in the comments. :)
