I’m not ready to give into November weather just yet (except for the thick, luxurious socks I’m currently wearing) so today I have summer sunshine and citrus wedding inspiration! A perfectly sweet palette of pastel yellow, peachy pink, and amber is the perfect way to infuse summer warmth into winter wedding planning. The inspiration came from the inviting hues of tart and tangy cocktails served in mason jars with adorably patterned straws, relaxing and refreshing at the same time. With that in mind, it made perfect sense to create a comfortable and laid-back atmosphere – that’s what us Californians excel at, after all!
Easy-going in no way means lacking in artistry, so this design is still bursting with innovative and creative details. Loose, free-form floral arrangements of summery poppies, ranunculus, and garden roses perfectly capture the relaxed vibe, with trailing ferns and flowing ribbons to add movement. An eclectic array of retro armchairs creates mismatched but beautifully harmonious ceremony seating – striped and patterned pillows add colorful accents to faded velvet and worn wood. An antique ladder topped with slabs of wood creates a unique bar for those cocktails – the perfect way to welcome guests and set the mood for fun!
