This shoot still makes my citrus orchard loving heart soar... My vision was a preppy, elegant wedding reception set in the middle of an orange orchard.We took this look in a different direction than rustic and vintage, instead we wanted something fresh yet classic. This table design was also featured in the 2011 edition of Bride and Bloom Magazine.
Stephanie Williams of This Modern Romance is by far one of my favorite photographers. Her eye for design and detail is impeccable. She is warm, friendly and extremely talented. I am always in awe of her work and giving heart. She and her husband Isaac also helped us bring a table and all of our pieces out into the middle of an orchard. This shoot really would not have been possible without these two amazing people. They were also the genius photography team behind our Spanish photo shoot. Last year Isaac and Stephanie were dealt a huge blow when Isaac was diagnosed with a brain tumor... to read more about their story and to donate, please visit Help Heal Isaac.

And now the delicious images...
We used a powder blue pin tuck linen, with a soft butter yellow linen runner down the center of the table. The look was fresh and clean.
I used rose patterned containers with flowers in shades of blue, yellow and orange...with a pop of green and coral . I used runnunculas, roses, viburnum, hydrangea, garden roses and dusty miller.
We brought in our own chandeliers and hung them overhead... it added a little bling and elegance to the orchard. Which might I add, smelled as amazing as it looks.
My love for Posh Paperie is BIG. Their designs are always timeless and creative. Karrie and Elizabeth designed simple chair cards for the bride and groom with blue dupioni ribbon.
A single yellow rose and sugared lemon at each place setting.
Another Posh Paperie gem... the menu and programs were perfection!
I LOVE this shot, it reminds me of a warm summer day and pink lemonade...
Melody of Sweet and Saucy did an AMAZING job on the cake. She used the same lace detail Karrie of Posh Paperie designed for all the paper goods on the fondant. And the sugar flower looked so realistic, it was insane!!
Many, many thanks to all of the fabulous wedding talents who came together for this magazine shoot. And I hope this inspires your summer loving heart too...xoxoPin It
