Captured by our own Rodeo & Co. Photography, these images are full of whimsy + happiness. Totally speaking our language!
Super fun paper goods from Fink Prints with thick pink brush calligraphy and embossed cardstock. Sí, you will see us there!
The bride’s spaghetti strap gown from Blush Bridal & Formal is totally rad with its intricate sequined patterns and flirty neckline.
Her BFF’s ruffly tangerine gown from Loves + Friends is equally as enchanting. It wouldn’t take us long to cha cha real smooth in that number!
Okay this cake from Autumn Nomad is setting the bar wayyyy high. With colorful motifs and a topper of pomegranates, cacti and tropical foliage, this is at the top of our bookmark list!
We hopped on the tassel train as soon as it came chugging into the station, so when we spotted these pink earrings from Katherine Stuart Design our hearts just about stopped.
From the stylist, Kristin of By Emily B. : My birthday is May 1st. I’ve always loved it so much because has usually arrived in New England, the leaves are showing up and animals emerge after a long winter. The new warmth has this ethereal, soft quality that I always soak up when potting my first flowers. But also, and more importantly, Cinco de Mayo is five days later. And since tacos are my favorite food and margaritas, my favorite drink, this also makes belated birthday celebrations extra sweet. Because of this, I’ve always dreamed of doing a Cinco de Mayo wedding shoot. Stretching my legs creatively during my favorite time of year while also honoring the Mexican-American culture we are so lucky to have in this country.
We partnered with some of the best New England vendors I’ve ever worked with. I wanted our beautiful model to rock hair and makeup that pushed the envelope. We wanted it to be surprising and inspiring, yet realistic, approachable—something a daring bride may try. Making Faces and Hair that Moves understood exactly, giving us a bold, colorful eye, a punchy lip and a full, yet refined updo. The dress, OH THE DRESS. Blush Bridal & Formal tossed this Hayley Paige design out the moment I said “Cinco…” and it couldn’t have been more perfect. Reserve Modern built us an exceptional lounge, featuring their Scallop Swivel Chair and yellow glass FLY pendant lights, and provided table rentals that really spoke to the vision. Can I set every table with a pink-rimmed tequila shot?!
My team brought it all full circle with bright, punchy florals, featuring Coral Charm peonies, yellow pin cushion protea, tiny yellow orchids, and locally-grown Spring Ledge Farm purple parrot tulips. We did some hand lettering on terra cotta pots, which we finished off with a variety of cacti.
