Glamorous Garden Wedding

The very first thing to catch our eye in today’s wedding, which was all captured by Amanda K Photography, was the bridesmaids dresses. A neutral color palette with some patterned gowns thrown in, AND they were made by the bride’s sister? What’s not to love! After a modern, feminine yet modern wedding reception, Pamela and Shane skipped town for a honeymoon in Paris, Aix en Provence, Barcelona, and Mallorca.

From the bride, Pamela: I had envisioned an outdoor Parisian wedding. I love pink, hearts, Chanel and everything feminine and girly but wanted a modern look to it all.

I was very inspired by Chanel. I ran across a photo of a backdrop made of paper flowers from a Chanel runway show, and instantly I knew I had to have something like this in our wedding. We purchased a flower making kit from Paper-Source and made hundreds of paper flowers for the arch where the ceremony took place. We kept the color scheme was very neutral – white, blush and cream with a hint of black to give it that modern touch. The sequined linens, mirrored vases and mercury glass votives tied everything together perfectly. It was perfect combination of everything I loved.
