When Christina of Simply Modern Weddings found an old book on vintage California orange box labels, she was totally inspired by the art, graphics, and bright colors. Wheels started turning and it wasn’t long until she began dreaming up lots of great wedding inspiration around oranges…
Her team began thinking of the vintage paired with modern – the rustic organic feeling of the orange groves paired with the bold statement that the orange box labels had. The team visualized a clean white modern table with oranges down the center as a runner and citrus colored poppies almost growing out of the runner as the floral – wait until you see it, so super rad! We like it so much, we created an Orange Crush inspired Get the Look.
All the gorgeous photos by ART IS FOR LOVERS.
From Christina, Overall this shoot was an absolute dream to design. We wanted to show a fun California vibe…a sweet couple marrying their crush…and bright colors for the season. This can easily be recreated by any couple looking to add an extra citrusy “pop” to their wedding day!!
For styling our bride, this chic lace dress from BHLDN had a very vintage mod feel, and we loved how the lace pattern mimicked the circle shape of the oranges. Her beautiful floral crown was a perfect fit for the laid back California style. I love how Krista Jon created it asymmetrical, so it stood out without completely overwhelming her head. Gorgeous!!
Our groom looked equally dapper with his fresh seersucker and colorful paisley tie, sometimes the guys can be afraid of too much color…but this shows that it works!! Love the bride’s pop of color on her lips! Lovely hair + makeup by 10.11 makeup.
Love the raw wood place mats and how they bring that organic flow to the clean modern lines of the tablescape!
For the dessert display, the wood fruit crates brought back that free flowing, easy, vintage vibe. The thought was for this display to be an interesting visual piece for eyes to take in the beauty of little treasures that you may find around your grandma’s house, mixed in with delicious sweets…so much more fun than a typical dessert table!! All the yummy treats are by Sweet and Saucy Shop.
Love the calligraphy on the oranges for the name of each dessert! Too cute…
I’m crushing for some oranges now! :)
