Coral and Emerald Wedding Inspiration

With its soft coral and calming aqua hues, today’s styled shoot from Cannon Candids Photography and Jstat Design has us longing for spring. While we wait for things to warm up a bit outside, this is a fantastic way to tide us over! We’re particularly taken with the wedding bouquet — it took us a few good looks to realize that it wasn’t made with real flowers, but rather silk ones with vintage brooches.

From the photographer, Cannon Candids: This summer Cannon Candids Photography had the opportunity to shoot at a new up and coming venue in Barberton, Ohio, The Piggery at Anna Dean Farms. After shooting their first wedding there, they knew that they wanted to go back. The space was simple and full of beautiful natural light. The designer of the shoot wanted to take the fresh rustic space and fill it whimsical colors and sparkle! Elyse’s Boutique, Suzie Kays Keepsake Brooch Bouquets, Sitting Pretty Linens, Jstat Design, and Cannon Candids Photography worked together to create this stylized shoot. We were inspired by the natural accents of everyday life and wanted to reveal nature’s beauty of glittering dew, natural light, and vibrant greenery.

From the bride, Caitlin: We wanted our wedding to be super laid back and fun for everyone involved; we saw it as a great opportunity to bring family and friends together and have an amazing evening making memories. It was so great to have the people that we love and cherish there to celebrate with us, and we wanted that to be the focus and not get hung up on too many little details. We wanted everyone to feel relaxed, have some great food, dance to some awesome music, and just enjoy spending time with loved ones.

My wedding could probably be best described as simple and classic, with vintage elements, and a soft color palette with the occasional pops of color (brought in largely by the flowers used in the bouquets and on the tables). Everything felt light and soft with just the right amount of contrast. There were several DIY projects, including the menus, table numbers, the “ribbon wall,” escort cards and the display they were attached to, bride and groom chair backs, cake topper, ring box, wooden gate with bride and groom’s initials, stands for the vintage windows displayed at the altar and behind the sweetheart table, the game of “life-sized Jenga,” hangers for the bride’s/bridesmaids’ dresses, and several pieces of refinished vintage furniture. The wedding planner along with my mom and dad totally rocked at all of these DIY projects!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? My best advice for couples would be to relax and be adaptable when planning your wedding—especially if you are doing it long distance, which is becoming more and more common these days. If you would have asked me a few years ago how I expected my wedding planning to go, I would’ve said, “I don’t need a wedding planner, I can totally do everything myself.” Little did I know that I would be planning a wedding long distance, and wouldn’t have the freedom to fly back and forth between Omaha and the Bay Area to get my hands dirty in all the little details. I was able come up with a vision for the big day, but needed to leave the execution in my mom’s and my wedding planner’s hands (yes, I did get a wedding planner after all, and she was a huge blessing to us). I learned through the process that it’s okay to trust your vision to other people—no, I didn’t get to do every DIY project myself, and I didn’t get to see everything first hand before the big day, but guess what? I had a beautiful wedding and reception, the planning process wasn’t stressful, and the most important part was that I got to marry my best friend that day—that’s all that ultimately matters for any bride or groom.

From the photographer, Majesta Patterson: Marrying tradition with modern design, Cole and Caitlin held a sweet, rustic wedding at the Rengstorff House in Mountain View. Planning all the way from Nebraska, they carefully chose the perfect details and vendors – from their food truck spread to their gorgeous tablescapes. I love that Caitlin chose to add pops of color in her bouquets while keeping the bridesmaid dresses mismatched and neutral! Cole adorned a classic navy blue suit, my absolute favorite suit color of the season. Let’s just talk about their tablescapes for a second – one of my favorite details from their wedding! Like all good things, the layers to their table created a perfect balance to create a homey and inviting feel to their reception. With custom menu’s nailed to wood blocks and mismatched glass vases to hold their delicate wild flowers. Napkins were wrapped and placed in cute buckets to carry the food truck theme, placed on a natural wood board atop their light blue table runners. And lastly, the overhead bistro lighting created a warm environment for their guests to dine under. It truly was a charming celebration!
