It’s sweet summertime and that means it’s getting hot, but I have something that’s even hotter…🔥
I had the pleasure to team up with a group of über talented women to create this mango-tropical wedding inspiration – and a big shout out goes to Jennifer Garrett of Aggie Photography for being the creative director with an eye for design and one of the most organized women I know!
This romantic and vibrant wedding inspiration took place at the Shahnasarian Event Hall in Saint Petersburg. The florals from Rose Garden Florist were beyond gorgeous and I absolutely loved the hexagon shaped arch; which was the perfect backdrop for a ceremony under the rustic pavilion where I could see a couple exchanging vows and smiling from ear to ear.
The bride was in a classic white gown and instead of a veil she sported a beautiful flowing ombre cape to add in a hint of color for the bride who wants to spice up their wedding-day look. She was the epitome of grace and her husband rocked a bright coral jacket.
There was a custom made floral wall that served as a unique backdrop behind the cake and featured cocktails. The head table was adorned with a vibrant garland that spilled over the edge of the table. Each plate setting had a gold hand-lettered mango with their name on it – adding into the cute detail of tying in the mango! Every detail from this summer inspired wedding photo shoot could create a view picture perfect wedding day for the bright and cheerful couple!
I know when it came to creating an invitation suite to match this inspiration I immediately grabbed my paintbrush and created a very warm and rich floral bouquet. I made sure to have all of the colors you would see in a mango and just had to throw in some pink to spice it up! Plus, I really wanted to push the boundaries with color and texture, making sure these invitations would pop! I included a printed vellum sheet to lay over the invitation that played with the different shapes and colors of the actual invitation and the florals within it.
When it comes to invitations, your idea is not too bizarre or too small, these are to represent your day and I want them to be as simple or extravagant as your little heart's desires!
The vendor team behind this wedding inspiration shoot was pure magic! Every single woman is a true artist in her craft and I highly recommend seeking out anyone of these fabulous ladies to help execute your perfect wedding day. Let me know what you think and if there’s anything you would love to see me create!
