Sangria Inspired Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Though perhaps unexpected, we love that the event designers in today’s styled shoot chose to pull their inspiration from a white sangria. The sophistication of the wine mixed with the bright colors of the fruit make for a truly stylish affair, don’t you think? Thanks to Amalie Orrange Photography, RW Events, and Windermere Flowers for sharing your beautiful work on this one!

From the designer, Katie of RW Events: I wanted to create a Sangria inspired shoot, and I wanted to do the exact opposite of typical. Not a dark wine cellar, but a bright and airy feel. In this shoot you will find the vibrant Pantone colors of Cayenne, Celosia Orange, Freesia and Hemlock. These colors are found naturally in the fruit used to make our White Sangria; Oranges, Strawberries, slices of Peaches, and Raspberries. These same colors inspired the floral, and greenery. With added accents of bright pink, gold, light blue and creamy milk glass, we created a fun and flirty atmosphere for this Sangria inspired shoot.

The shoot featured many DIY elements, because frankly, DIY makes me happy. Most every piece you see in this shoot was made from scratch, refinished, or enhanced in one way or another. The wooden Sangria Bar was made from reclaimed wood, and featured “upgraded” wine glasses (gold painted bottoms), creamy light blue painted wine bottles, a custom sangria sign and refinished wooden crates used as the sangria stands. Some of those same handmade elements carried over to the head table, which also featured handmade placemats, refinished chairs, and a farm table cut, built and stained right in our studio. The seating are featured our stunning gold refinished dresser.

One DIY element you will find throughout the shoot is “blue washed” wood. The Sangria sign, place mats, and Sangria stands all donned this soft finish. I love using wood in any way possible, and was trying to think of how to incorporate it in the shoot. I didn’t want to just paint the wood because then you lose the grain pattern (and that’s the best part about wood!) I decided to wash the pieces in a light blue hue. This is done by applying a small amount of paint brushed on the wood, and then while the paint is still wet, wiping the paint off with a damp rag. You can repeat this process until you acquire the desired shade. Once dry, I added the calligraphy with a gold paint pen. This look allowed me to incorporate color without covering the wood completely!

    The bite-size pie on a stick. The color palette. The paper and font choices. The giant tree with a table beneath it. These are all such lovely details sure to inspire anyone who wants an outdoor wedding!
