Mardi Gras Wedding Ideas : a fun and festive inspiring photo shoot

I have such a fun photo shoot to share with you today. As we get ready for Mardi Gras later this month {the 21st to be exact}, I have a Mardi Gras inspired wedding reception from a wonderful team in California. The inspiration was deep royal blues, plums, violet and green colors with masks, lots of glitter, and silver. As Tina of Weddings by Tina writes . . . "Think New Orleans, French Quarters, Bourbun street and live music, with feathers, bead work, glam and glitz, people having a grand ball of a time during the celebration all dressed up and the city comes to life with bold colors and lots of fun for everyone. This inspired us to create a very boisterous and lively menu along with an exotic centerpiece that included materials such as: Ornamental Kale, Vanda orchids, green Anthurium, Asclepia seed pods (green balls), privet berries, glittery lotus seed pods and corkscrew hazel." The beautiful menu is from Invitations by Ajalon. I'm loving the extra bling with the rhinestone on the mask. 

Thank you to all the members that put this spectacular shoot together. The colors are just perfect for Mardi Gras and I love the peacock feathers and the Asclepia seed pods are just amazing for the perfect touch of green. Super unique and creative.
