Whimsical Garden Party Wedding Inspiration

garden party

Today’s styled shoot is all about having fun with details! And the team behind this gorgeous, whimsical garden party wedding inspiration was not afraid to use color + pattern in some beautiful, extraordinary + unexpected ways. Styled by Sweet Sunday Events (who also provided the florals + rentals) and photographed by EE Photography, this shoot evokes the most perfect summer vibe and is sure to inspire you with some fun design ideas! Here’s a bit more from the stylist:

Our Garden Party shoot took place in within the ivy-sheilded walls of Chandor Gardens. Using just about every color of flower available, the bouquet and table centerpiece were fun + whimsical with head pieces made of roses and butterflies. A ceremony backdrop was made from paper butterflies fluttering into the wind and the low table scape set with a pink polka dot linen, vibrant napkins, and pattern happy pillow seating made the day perfect for a summer celebration. Custom made covered parasols fit for a king + adorable paper goods from The Stationery Bakery completed the look seamlessly.
