Aqua and Gold Easter Inspiration

Wedding Design

Spring is definitely here, and along with it comes one of our favorite holidays: Easter! Ashley Hayward collaborated with Jenna Trapasso of Red White and Green Photography to create this Easter-inspired bohemian affair, full of pops of aqua and gold. Thank you Ash and Jenna!


Aqua and Gold Easter Inspiration

From the stylist, Ashley: We wanted to create an airy backyard affair complete with pops of our favorite color scheme, gold and aqua. We knew two things for certain: we wanted to use the amazing Sarah Seven aqua stunner from Ruffled Shop, and wanted to play around with glitter bomb eggs. We also knew we wanted to avoid too much structure, so we kept things a bit bohemian by using a loosely grouped bouquet of open tulips and a halo of Carolina jessamine for the bride’s hair.

Gainey Ranch Spring Wedding

Garden Weddings

When Victoria Canada Weddings and Events sent over this gorgeous wedding shot by photographer Stephanie Fay, we knew it would provide the perfect inspiration for this Easter weekend. The delicate color palette and the bird motif are all so perfectly reminiscent of spring. Animal lovers Angie and Garrett made sure to include their furry friends in the wedding ceremony, and we adored seeing them pop up around the reception as well!

As anything can happen when animals are involved in a wedding, one of the dogs got loose and ran full speed down the aisle before ceremony. The dog on the loose ended up being scooped up by a wedding guest and watched happily as Angie and Garrett said their vows.

Salt Lake City Garden Wedding

Vintage Weddings

This Salt Lake City from Lindsey Stewart of Green Apple Photography fuses the best of both worlds: an outdoor garden ceremony with an ultra elegant indoor reception. We love their guests wore they favorite 20s inspired frocks, complete with some seriously amazing headpieces the ladies made at Laura’s bachelorette party. Wait until you see Laura’s stunning bouquet, complete with amaranth and loose twigs!

From the bride, Laura: We wanted a sophisticated feel in a nonfussy, earthy style… warm and inviting but still luxurious. Our color scheme for the ceremony was white + all shades of green… the reception was held in a very nice old house so no decor was necessary! DIY elements included wedding programs and our wedding favors.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Simplify and narrow down your DIY elements early on, focusing in on what you know you will enjoy doing. The week before the wedding is crazy no matter how much you try to do ahead of time, so plan and recruit help to make sure everything gets done with minimal stress.

From the photographer, Lindsey of Green Apple Photography: Laura and Alister had their ceremony up in the Wasatch Mountains, at the Groom’s cabin and then their reception at a historic home in Salt Lake City. A couple of things I really loved about this wedding were the amazing hats everyone wore to the Ceremony. Laura and Alister invited everyone to wear their best hat attire, and part of her bachelorette party was making some of these gorgeous creations. Their reception was at an historic home, and so many of their guests also dressed up in their best 1920’s style. It was so fun to see everyone show up. Laura’s sister-in-law owns a winery, and created a custom wine especially for Laura and Alister’s wedding. It was a gorgeous wedding, full of style, personality and love.
