Live Floral Backdrop Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Floral wall backdrops are something that we’ll never tire of, frankly. No matter if they’re used at a ceremony or behind the sweetheart table, they give off such elegance and the best part is you can do absolutely anything you want with it. So when LVL Weddings & Events tackled this brilliant shoot, they moved towards the direction of a fun and refreshing botanical floral wall exquisitely done by Flower Bar, mixing and matching tropical green leaves with bubblegum pink roses and peonies with creamy hydrangeas to name a few. Not stopping there, the wow factor extended all over this editorial. Definitely a shoot to see and we have Amy and Jordan Photography to thank for it!

From the event planners and designers, LVL Weddings & Events: Emily Schiesl of LVL Weddings & Events took the reins on a styled shoot design held at The Clayton on the Park in the heart of Scottsdale, Arizona. Emily was inspired by botanical florals seen in spring fashion and decor popping up in the early months of 2016 and chose to complement the bright blooms with bold black and the softness of blush and gold throughout the overall design.

The most bold statement came from the ceremony backdrop designed by Flower Bar, to create the look of a live floral wall (floral wallpaper anyone?!). The flower wall was designed to look like botanical prints found in books and wall decor, with carefully placed blooms mixed with greens. This bold statement piece complemented the softness of the blush linens by La Tavola as well as the stationary suite by Vee Creative.

We couldn’t have asked for a more darling couple – a local, recently married duo, whose love just danced in every photo. The bride wore the Ariane gown from BHLDN with a cathedral veil and teardrop earrings before changing into her ‘getaway’ dress, also BHLDN. We kept the groom more traditional in a tailored tuxedo-style suit by Brothers Tailors (letting him lose the tie for their getaway photos in the desert sunset). The cake and specialty deserts by Ruze Cake House almost stole the show! Macarons and cookies shared the same floral designs by Vee Creative, while the lollipops and sugar cubes held edible flowers, perfect for a bubbly toast. Ruze Cake House also tied in the black, blush, gold and floral theme with a 3-tiered gold gilded cake and mini naked cakes in dark chocolate with fresh blooms.

A Summer Boho Picnic


M&M’S® just happen to be one of those treats that will always hit the spot for me — a bit of chocolate, a hint of crunch, and total bliss. They’re a classic as wedding favors, and for good reason; they’re easy to package and everyone’s a fan! For this styled shoot, I wanted to show how you can implement the fun candy into your wedding day decor using My M&M’S® personalized candies. We also have a 25% off promo code that you can use for your entire order!

First I picked out the colors that best fit my scheme (electric lime, aqua, and teal in this case), and then I added some cute sayings that reflected the whimsy of the day. “I like your face,” “you’re shmoopy” (for all you Seinfeld fans out there), “love you always,” and “let’s do this” were printed onto the backs of each M&M. I filled up a bowl at each place setting with the candies, and then popped in a waffle cone as a cute to-go container for your treats.

Casey Brodley, Photographer

I’m not a traditional wedding photographer. My background and training is steeped in photo journalism, so that’s how I approach a wedding. My goal is to document the day, not stage it. I let moments unfold naturally, with minimal prom posing and minimal “say cheese” interference.

As a photo journalist, I come prepared for anything. Every wedding is different. I have witnessed full-grown men weep more times than I can count. I have seen smiles so wide that I’m concerned someone may burst a blood vessel. I have climbed mountains with all my gear. And this one time a sprinkler system was triggered during a ceremony.

As a wedding photographer, I walk into every job with the guarantee that I will witness pure joy. But more importantly, I walk into every job with the probability that my day will end with cake. I like to keep my cake-to-work ratio balanced. For health reasons.

Catalina Point Oceanview Wedding

Romantic Weddings

It was just impossible to not be so enamored with this west coast wedding. Not only are the ocean views of the Pacific sheer bliss, but the heaps and heaps of purple and silver are incredible. Dave Richards Photography was thankfully present to capture the day, and every detail of this wedding was on point thanks to the planning expertise of Katie over at Bob Gail Special Events. Filling the reception with even more purple to look at, Hollyflora went wild with the arrangements of very classic lavender and plum-colored blooms. The pretty in this California wedding is almost too much to handle!

From the bride, Alexa: We wanted to embrace the natural elements of the resort but also make it feel like a west coast fall, which is why we went with vibrant purples and a classic, timeless feel. We went with a variety of purples as our main color with touches of silver.
