St. Patrick’s Day Wedding Inspiration at a Pub
St. Patrick’s Day has one of our all-time favorite color palettes, green and gold, and this styled shoot from Juli Vaughn Designs and Sarah Esther Photography fuses together those very colors with a brunch wedding for a shoot that’s making us as hungry as it is inspiring us! The icing on the cake has to be the sparkly green and silver beaded gown, a vintage find in Atlanta — just wait until you catch a glimpse.
From the event designer, Juli of Juli Vaughn Designs: The luck of the Irish sometimes extends to vintage green beaded dresses – at least that’s what makeup artist Andrea Carter experienced the day she found the dress that inspired this shoot. Tucked in between a mound of 80s prom dresses at an antique store in Atlanta, she spotted its sparkly sleeve and fell in love immediately.
Much like finding “the dress” and being excited to plan your wedding day, as soon as Andrea showed it to me, I knew we had to give it a second day in the spotlight as a star in a St. Patrick’s Day inspired wedding shoot. And what Irish-inspired wedding is complete without a pub, a gorgeous redhead, and plenty of Guinness (in ice cream float form)? We also threw in a brunch reception with a pancake “cake”, a hand drawn Celtic knot and family crest, sparkly custom jewelry, and a letterpress invitation suite that could turn anyone green with envy.
I am SO in love with everything about this shoot! Bravo! So honored to have my headpiece in it! Happy St Patty’s Day everyone!
Wow, how lovely! Everything on this shoot is a dream. I want to know more about the stationary, it’s so prettyyyy! I want it for my own wedding.
Crazy to think that I only came across this dress a little over a month ago! Still amazed by the beauty that our vendors created at such a breakneck pace! Thanks for the feature, lovely Ruffled crew. ?????????? http://www.andreacarterartistry.com
