A Pink Wedding Fairytale Styled Shoot {Complete with a Frog on the Cake}

This fairtytale themed styled wedding shoot is absolutely breathtaking. I LOVE the bright pink in the bouquet, the sequined pink wedding gown and the mini cakes with the gold touches. There's even a white frog with gold accents on the wedding cake.

A Pink and Blue Summer Wedding with Roses Inspiration Board

Today's post is another fun flashback to a past inspiration board I created. Since, it's now officially summer, I thought it would be fun to kick it off with a pastel summery inspiration board for a pink rose wedding with sweet little blue touches. And, since it's summer, why not serve your guests gourmet ice cream with their cake? It's the perfect treat for a hot summer party. PS: There's a fun new addition to this inspiration board - be sure to see the end of this post to see what it is.

The above sash was shared with me from Kathleen Barry Bespoke Occasion Accessories right after I posted this inspiration board and I just had to add it in. She just finished creating this bridal floral sash for a Bride to be in Washington. It's the perfect match for my inspiration board.

Glam Floral Chic Wedding Ideas in Pink, Black and White

Bird's Party Magazine has released their Spring issue and it's filled with so many wonderful ideas for the spring season. In this new issue, there's a wonderful styled wedding table setting in hot pink with black and white stripes {makes me think of Kate Spade}. The design for this tablescape was inspired by seasonal blooms and boasts stunning ideas for both the eyes and tastebuds. PS: Be sure to check out all of the Bird's Party Printables and Party Supplies - you can save 20% right now with code LUCKY.

My favorite ideas from this glam wedding + dessert table include:

1. The large "Best Day Ever" poster behind the dessert display
2. The single bloom on the top of the cake with the striped ribbon along the bottom. Prefer to place an everlasting bloom on your cake? You may like this clay peony cake topper.
3. The white milk glass bowls for the dessert display - they match the white ruffled cake stands
4. The glitter bows instead of ribbon around the "spread the love" favor jars
5. The black pom-pom topped drink stirrers

Hot Pink Peony Wedding Inspiration and Peony Invitation Ideas

I am in love with the pops of pink in today's featured bridal shoot from Maribel of Eight Tree Street {a member of my vendor guide} and Allison of Allison Hopperstad Photography. Along with this beautiful shoot, I have some great peony wedding invitations to share with you at the end of this post. But, first Maribel shares a bit behind her designs/ideas for this shoot . . .

We love the idea of combining the rustic images of this beautiful working farm with the romance of flowers. For the florals in this Romantic farm styled shoot, we used peonies, the perfect compliment for a spring wedding, and we love these gorgeous hot pink ones. To style the bride with a sweet touch, we included a headpiece of peonies, Faith roses and ferns with small accents of greenery. Model Giovanna was the epitome of spring beauty in her dreamy gown with beaded bodice. With such flowy lines and silhouette, the bouquet we created was one of the things we love . . . a bouquet of texture and pops of color with white and pink peonies, ranunculus and roses wrapped in burlap ribbon. Something sweet and delicate, but still rustic and romantic!

If you are a DIY bride, you can see that a little goes a long way, just a few peony blooms with other rich textures and you have a gorgeous bouquet for your wedding day.

Rustic Garden Inspired Wedding {it's whimsical with a modern twist}

I LOVE today's Rustic Garden Inspired Wedding . . . which is a stylized photo shoot from D'Love Affair Wedding & Events. It's rustic with a modern twist and it takes place in a little secret garden that was found in an urban city. The color palette of soft yellows, pinks and greens with gold details is beautiful. And, the ideas in this stylized shoot? Wow - there are so many . . .

In this stunning shoot, you will find vintage books and suitcases, wooden doors, couches, a rustic dessert table {supported by wine barrels}, a beautiful wedding dress from Pronovias' new 2015 collection that features a unique loose strap design & elegant bead work, pretty Badgley Mischka heels, a wedding cake that features exquisite details like ruffles and gold sequins and is painted with white and gold watercolor effects. The details {including the pink and ivory flowers} on the cake are all handmade and edible Kitty Wong Pastry Shop. The gorgeous photography is by L'Estelle Photography.
