Modern Outdoor Wedding Inspiration

Lemon Grove Inspiration

When dreaming up her version of a spring wedding that incorporates this year’s Pantone colors, rose quartz + serenity, Brynn from Dandy & Fine Parties knew she wanted to layer the overall design with the soft femininity of this cotton candy palette, but still be true to her cheerful, colorful style. She says, And what is more cheerful than the color yellow and lemons? So, our love story begins in and near the lemon groves of sunny San Diego, California. I added in hints of cheer with fun and fresh yellow, which truly elevated the palette to a new level.

GWS Wedding Artist, Cavin Elizabeth Photography, was the talent behind the lens and we just love the bright, playful scene that lies ahead! Be sure to pin a thing or two from this vibrant editorial – it’s the perfect inspiration for a sweet spring wedding, pretty bridal shower or fun summer soirée!

The stunning florals by Blue Ladder Botany incorporated soft pinks and pops of lemon yellow to give the perfect nod to spring. Diamant of Blue Ladder shares, I love experimenting with colors and textures, but the best part about this bouquet is how good it smells! It had that perfect hint of lemons from the geranium and long leaf wax, mixed with the sweet perfume of garden roses…yum!
