Vintage Hot Air Balloon Wedding

Wedding Design

My goodness, what a treat we have to share with you all today. This styled shoot from Natalie Franke Photography, Pop the Cork Designs, and My Flower Box Events grabbed our attention right away with its color palette of fuchsia, peach, and cream, but it kept it with the amazing tablescape and the hot air balloon. How great would this idea be for a cheery summer wedding?

From the photographer, Natalie Franke: With pops of peach, pink, and cream – I felt swept away by all of the gorgeous details from this styled shoot. Held on a gorgeous estate north of Baltimore, a vintage hot air balloon served as the backdrop (and inspiration) for this editorial. I absolutely loved working with Jenna from Pop the Cork Events and watching her creative vision come to life in the summer sun! This entire shoot was a dream!

Dart Collective

DJs • Bands • Party Down

Started as a California-based DJ collective in 2013, Dart has now grown to include numerous live musicians and performers, all with the same simple goal of offering a more customized and personal approach to music curation at weddings and special events.

At Dart, we are all working DJs and musicians. Music is our passion and we want to share it with you and your guests—whether that means digging through vinyl crates for that one song you have to have, or customizing a repertoire list for one of our bands to flawlessly execute, our main goal here is to elevate and personalize your event so that it uniquely represents you.

Despite our attention to detail, we are not elitists and we do not take ourselves too seriously. These events are supposed to be fun, inclusive experiences and we want to only enhance that feeling by playing the best music we can. Whether it’s getting down to LCD Soundsystem or setting the mood with Paul Simon, we want to offer something a little different that will still connect with you and your guests.

Tropical Cuban Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Bright colors, a lovely dress, and delicious eats make up this fantastic shoot concocted by Amber Vickery Photography and Uptown Events and Travel. Cuba was the foundation of this beautiful shoot and we feel transported there already. We’re loving all of the brilliant shades of orange, yellow, and pink shot against the stark white background of One Eleven East. The colors stand out so perfectly. Not to mention, pairing all of the stand-out shades used with the moody indigo blue was spectacular! Petals, Ink. definitely brought it all together with their lovely floral creations using the most colorful flowers from the tulip and orchid families.

From the photographer, Amber Vickery Photography: Together with Uptown Events, One Eleven East and many other amazing Austin based vendors, we planned a very Cuban/Tropical inspiration shoot. We took inspiration from vintage Cuban tile work, tropical plants and florals, and the architecture of Cuba. Finding so much great indigo colored architectural while researching Cuba, we knew we wanted to pull in that deep blue to anchor the shoot and throw in a massive splash of color in contrast. Gretchen with Petals, Ink. blew us away with her use of tropical florals. I absolutely love how it all came together.
