Styled Shoot: Tangerine Tango + Lime

I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share this amazing shoot inspired by the Pantone color of the year! Photographed by Twila’s Photography, this styled session with bride, Erica, is filled with bold, bright colors. Although Erica, a proud Southern lady, adores rustic weddings, mason jars, and burlap, she opted for a sleek, urban style for this session. Styled by Wedding 101 Nashville, the bold Pantone color of the year, Tangerine Tango, was mixed with bright lime green; a daring combination. Erica, an artist and musician, secured the perfect location, the roof top and art galleries of Two Moon Gallery in the up and coming 12 South area of Nashville, Tennessee. A graphic trellis design in citrus colors adorned the invitations and paper goods, while flower arrangements were grounded by limes and oranges in square vases. Cake pops and slender marmalade and lime parfaits serve as an unexpected departure from the traditional wedding cake. Erica looks stunning in her sleek, modern gown and stylish headpiece. This shoot is just bursting with vivid color and amazing details!

Real Wedding: Alana + Adam in Austin

Captured by SMS Photography, Alana and Adam were married last March at The W Hotel in Austin, Texas. The sleek, modern design of the hotel creates the perfect backdrop for the couple’s stylish event. A color palette of pinks and purples stands out against the whites and grays of the venue. I especially adore the use of orchids; from bouquets, to boutonnieres, to the huppah, these stunning flowers created just the right amount of drama. A few words from the bride:

“Both Adam and I have contemporary taste so The W in Austin was the perfect venue. We loved that we were able to have our ceremony on the outdoor terrace overlooking the city followed by the reception inside the Great Room. We wanted a beautiful, simple and clean spring wedding that was true to our taste…and BZ Events delivered. Our focus was music, food and flowers and we couldn’t have been happier with all three. It was a night we will never forget!”

Real Bridal Shower: Nicole in California

I adore the “fiesta” theme of this colorful bridal shower! Photographed by Snaps and Scribbles, Nicole’s family enlisted the help of Jordan Event Studio to design a co-ed bridal shower for close family and friends. Being that Nicole is half mexican, they decided on a shower with fun fiesta vibe. Guests were welcomed with the authentic Mexican sounds of Pepe and Jorge and enjoyed sangria, horchata and watermelon agua fresca. A salsa bar with five different types of salsa and even guacamole was a highlight of the event! A few more details:

“Jill and Kristine of Jordan Event Studio customized a lot of the elements seen in the décor. We found the vibrant Mexican oilcloth from (Michael Levine) and custom cut and sewed it to a runner measuring over 30 feet! We also hand made the paper flowers, which we placed in front of each seat with the guest names. The custom Papel Picado banner was designed by Joanna from Waterfall Creative. After Joanna designed each banner, we cut and sewed the designs to add the pops of color to the food, beverage and cake tables. Joanna also designed the taqueria menu, seat card names, candle favor tags as well as the food labels. Ashley of Floracopia used peonies, dahlias and ranunculus in varying white trough-like vases to add even more pops of color to the tables. The flowers were so gorgeous that we had to use them as hair accessory for the bride-to-be.”
