With St. Patrick’s Day later this week and Pantone declaring it the color of the year, there is lots to love in this emerald styled shoot! For this photoshoot, You & Me Events and Hazelnut Photography thought it would be fun to create an imaginary couple and design a wedding perfectly suited to them. So, meet Dexter and Ella! :) He is a master mixologist who loves the grandeur of eras gone by; she is a jewelry designer and fashion blogger who has a serious love of the color green.
And more from the team about the shoot, “We found a lot of inspiration in the gorgeous lines of a St. Germaine bottle, which has the essence of Dexter’s favorite time period. We used these art deco shapes to inspire everything from the invitations to the Bride’s bouquet. Using important keepsakes is a wonderful way to infuse their personalities into the wedding day. We imagined that the vintage ice bucket is a cherished family heirloom and we were able to re-purpose it as a unique cake stand. We put the Bride’s incredible jewelry collection to good use as a glamorous base for the escort card bottles. These small details are sure to make the day feel like their own, which is exactly how every Bride & Groom should feel on their wedding day.”
Thanks to all these creatives for sharing their talent with us today!

I’d love to know where that necklace is from. I have a gorgeous 20s Art Deco style wedding gown & an emerald engagement ring. I’ve been looking for the perfect necklace & I LOVE that one. Anyone know where I could find it or one like it?
that bouquet is insanely beautiful!
@Cate – Thank you…we fell in love with it too! It’s by Kendra Scott.
Thank you! Can’t wait to check it out.
Always an honor to be featured on Green Wedding Shoes! It was so fun fun working on this shoot alongside some of my favorite vendors!
Wow, how regal is this wedding shoot? I love the richness of the wedding invitations and stationery – there’s a slight gold sheen that bounces off the green. Loving the altar – SO original! And the cake – WOW! :D Love all the various shades of Emerald and how well it’s been used,like the right amounts and such! Kudos.Beautiful feature!
I think the theme is truly perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. I love green!
A beautiful shoot :)
Loooooove this shoot!!!
Such an honor to be featured, thanks Jen! Absolutely loved working with such talented vendors. xo
The flowers are the best part of this entire spread. I have NEVER seen such gorgeous florals in my life. They seem like they’re from another planet–other worldly–totally amazing.
Ohhhh I REALLY need to know where to get that necklace. Anyone?
What an awesome, original idea to use velvet ribbon for chair sashes! Might have to borrow the idea! I love all the attention to detail, and absolutely love the bride’s hair!!!!!!
Wow. What a fabulous idea. Perfect for an irish wedding!
Very very nice! Green is such a wonderful colour, actually it is my favourite colour. Makes everybody feel great!
I never knew green could be so classy. All this time I thought it only worked for garden weddings. This is a fabulous shoot! That necklace is captivating! Anyone knows where I can get one?
