The Fourth of July has long been one of my favorite holidays, I’ve often wondered what it would look like with an updated and unexpected color palette. I’m happy to say my wait is over after seeing this incredible shoot from E Events Co! Eileen tackled the holiday with a fresh tropical flair with the help of Tessa’s Garden and Two Foxes Photography.
From the event designer, Eileen of E Events Co: Rather than using the traditional scheme of red, white, and blue, we worked with a bright summery palette of fuchsia, blush, canary yellow, papaya orange and mixed metallics for this fresh take on an Independence Day inspired wedding celebration. We wanted to keep with the nostalgic tradition of the good ol’ BBQs and backyard pool parties we love so much about the 4th of July, but elevate the feel to that of an elegant garden party! Our incredibly talented florist crafted up the most amazing fresh floral table runner to feel like an explosion of florals, and brightly hand painted festive lanterns adorned the space overhead. Guests can beat the heat with freshly squeezed juice popsicle mimosas and treat themselves to a late night s’more. The castle house and garden was the perfect location to bring our elegant summertime BBQ party to life!!
