Tangerine Inspiration Shoot

Wedding Design

Photos by:

We are SO beyond excited to share today’s inspiration shoot with you all. With the help of A-list event designers Toast Events and Andy Beach & Co., photographer Melissa Schollaert executed this stunning photoshoot for Occasions Magazine‘s June 2012 issue. I’ll say this — if it’s possible for a person to fall in love with a venue, that’s just I’ve done with Boxwood Gardens at Atlanta History Center!

From the event designer, Lindsay of Toast Events: Tangerine Tango was introduced as the Pantone Color of the Year which immediately inspired me to use it for this shoot. Being such a vivid, showstopping color, we chose to pair it with white and set it in the lush backdrop of the Boxwood Gardens. I loved the thought of a modern palette and tablescape in such an antiquated, classic backdrop.

Bethany and Dan Photography

“Photography so fresh you’ll want to slap it.”

In love wedding photographers with our suitcases packed for adventures. We specialize in personality driven portraiture and emotional storytelling.

Our number one goal on a wedding day is to show truth. We want the vulnerable honest imperfect and gritty real-life stuff. Ugly crying from how stinking happy you are to be married. We like messy hair and un-fluffed wedding dresses with dirt on the bottom, undone ties and tipsy wedding guests. Bring it.

Fresh Palm Springs Wedding

Garden Weddings

Photos by:

As soon as we saw this Palm Springs wedding from Katie Scott of SWOON by Katie, we instantly fell in love with its bright colors and fresh decor. With an all-star team of vendors including Carter and Cook Event Design and Modern Bouquet at Palm Springs’ Viceroy Hotel, how could this wedding deliver anything less than pure beauty?

From the bride, Jaymi: I like to call our wedding style Anthropologie with a touch of Z Gallerie. I scheduled several venue appointments out in Palm Springs for the next weekend and I took my mom. once we got to Viceroy, I just knew it was the place! I got that bridal feeling that I had not had at any other venue. Cute, quaint, romantic, a garden setting, outdoors, it couldn’t have been more perfect. I called Will and told him… I think it’s the one. I set up another appointment to bring him back the following weekend, and together we fell in love!

The colors of our wedding were pink and yellows with a touch of teal (all I wanted was peonies and what I like to call “fluffy flowers”). Our wedding was different; we did several non traditional things, guests told me that it was the most touching ceremony they had been to. Very heartfelt and very spiritual. The wedding really represented us as a couple– fun, romantic, and kind of crazy.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Don’t let the details, the family, and the coordinating make you crazy, remember all the beautiful reasons you are getting married in the first place. The day of the wedding you just need to release everything and let your coordinators take over — if there are any bumps in the day just remember that everything happens for a reason and just embrace it, what’s meant to be will be.
