Something’s got a hold on me right now, and there’s a 100% chance it’s the peach summer wedding flowers abounding in this gallery from Missouri based photographer Rochelle Maples. Together with Be My Guest Events, this equal parts cozy, sweet and elevated wedding concept was brought to life at a 24-acre farm in the Midwest. The sleek bridal ponytail and clear gold-rimmed clutch gave us a hint from the beginning that this wouldn’t be the kind of rustic chic barn wedding vibe we’re used to seeing from farm venues. Instead, this team took a refined mod approach, marrying the clean lines of the architecture, the the candle holders and the cake cart (to name a few!) with the curved shape of the floral ceremony pillars, overhead table garland and perfectly imperfect bud vase arrangements scattered down the table. Yep. Roses + Mint is a genius. We have been waiting far too long to share these peach summer wedding flowers in all their glory, so without further ado, enjoy this exquisite gallery in full below!
…. Did we mention there was a Dog of Honor? Cherry on top indeed!
From the Photographer, Rochelle Maples Photography: Featuring a stunning real-life couple, a fresh take on the classics you love and a flexible palette for any time of the year, this Sorbet Soiree themed editorial shows you how to create awe-inspiring memories with a budget focused on the details.
Last year, we saw a lot of weddings with smaller guest lists. Having to downscale on certain aspects of your wedding can still mean MORE… more of everything else! More florals, more small details for stunning photo ops, more intimate moments with your new spouse, more time to enjoy and relish these memories with your VIPs.
Looking to up your floral game? Suspended installs allow for the eye to balance height and dimensions within a space. With interest overhead, guests are able to talk freely without sprawling centerpieces obstructing their view. Consult with your floral team on the possibility of installing a ‘wow’ moment in your event.
An intimate event creates a more inviting environment for your four-legged attendants… like this bride’s sweet yorkie. Opt for a greenery leash instead of a floral collar to add a budget-friendly and fresh take to your pup’s style. Plus, can you think of a cuter photo op than being draped in greenery by your Best Dog?
For those that have postponed their event and question the seasonality of their color palette, fans of blush tones will appreciate the depth that deeper coral and soft apricot hues provide. While elements like scrolled hand lettered stationery keep the design traditional, acacia wood chargers serve to provide warm balance and dimension. The balance of warmer tones and brighter hues is adaptable for a summer wedding moving to fall or a fall wedding switching to a spring or summer date.
Nature always provides an amazing color palette and the gradient tones of peaches seen in this Sorbet Soiree inspiration are no different. Have fun with your tablescape by incorporating whole and sliced fruits among the floral elements. You can utilize your favorites based on what fits your color scheme or something that triggers a memory that’s special to you – did your love story start as a summer romance? Try peaches as an ode to summer. If fall speaks more to you as a couple, apples and cinnamon sticks could add a nice touch to your tablescape.
Pro tip: Be careful with berries which have stronger color transfer and can affect linen rentals!
As this gallery begins to fade from view, we’re tempted to scroll to the top and do it all over again. Let’s be real… all the cool kids are doing it! From the palette to the fashion to the darling ideas for incorporating fruit in the wedding decor, we have a feeling this wedding inspo is a definite keeper.
