Orange and hot pink wedding

Since she was a little girl, bride Kimberly envisioned herself in a pink and orange wedding.  Her dream came true this past May when she married Ian at the Arizona Grand Resort. Photographer Renee of The R2 Studio captured all the electric, eye-popping details of this fabulous wedding, full of clever ideas for brides-to-be. The groomsmen wore hot pink and orange socks with crisp black suits, while the bridesmaids showed off (what else?) pink and orange heels.

Beyond the beautiful fabric and floral details at the ceremony, the reception had fabulous pink and orange touches, from the decor to the appetizers. Guests were greeted by a table full of party favors, including sunglasses and bead necklaces. Framed scrapbook pages of the couple were on display throughout the reception space, while another station invited guests to, “Make an impression at our wedding! (‘Leaf’ a thumbprint)” by fingerprinting a keepsake tree. As if that incredible cake wasn’t enough, guests also selected from the couple’s signature drinks and a candy bar decked out in pink and orange candies.  Other favors included flip-flops and hand-rolled cigars with the couple’s logo!  Consider us inspired!


Wild bohemian wedding: vintage meets fire

Phillip of PhillipVN Photography shot this incredible wedding between a professional hula hooper and electronic music maker. Veronika and Torin had a whirlwind, two-week romance before getting engaged, and later tied the knot at the Burning Man music festival. The official ceremony took place at a private estate in the Bay Area of California, surrounded by a circle of their friends and family. The couple stood in the center of two golden hula hoops for their vows, while Torin’s musical creations played over the speakers.

The bridesmaids’ sweet yellow dresses were customized for each girl, from lace details to peacock feathers. Veronika made her beautiful button and ribbon bouquet with pieces from her family’s generations-old factory. Veronika’s friends gave starlit performances, including fire breathing and fire dancing. The bride topped off her night by dancing in a pair of handmade gold heels and spinning her LED hula hoop.


Midsummer in November: a whimsical autumn wedding

Chefs Laura and Zach were lucky in love on their 11-11-11 wedding day, photographed by Bill and Kelli of Kelli Nixon Photography.  The autumn wedding in Denver, Colorado, featured lots of DIY details like chalkboard signs, burned wood cutouts, and adorable fairy costumes for the flower girls, reminiscent of the play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream:

“Rustic, yet glamorous, with a touch of my personality everywhere you look,” Laura said.


Bright and colorful Texas wedding

This whimsical wedding by Cory Ryan Photography POPS with color. We love the way the bride paired eye-catching colors with bold black-and-white patterns. It’s a gorgeous mix that perfectly suits this fun-loving couple.

Hope and Noah wed in October at the Hummingbird House in Austin, Texas. Almost all of the details were created by the bride and her family; Cory Ryan calls them the “holy grail” of DIY crafts. Hope created all of the glittery details you’ll see below, including the bedazzled purple high heels and the brilliant tiger centerpieces.

Have a fabulous Friday, everyone!

The bride’s mother, an antique collector, created these gorgeous brooch bouquets for the bride and bridesmaid.
