Heavenly Wedding Inspiration with a Floral Swing

Wedding Design

Gauzy and dreamy, this Avec L’Amour Photography and Delighted Images shoot is the bee’s knees. Thuy from Avec L’Amour Photography orchestrated the fine details of the shoot and went for a romantic, carefree, and innocent setup, with the sweetest floral swing we’ve seen. Pineapple Petals Studio added to the mix by having heaps and heaps of the prettiest pink fleurs: bougainvillea, roses, tulips, and peonies, to name a few. We can never resist falling for an ultra-feminine shoot like this one!

From the photographer and event designer, Avec L’Amour Photography: California has a natural, golden beauty that is, in one aspect, so harsh, yet also so mesmerizing. The Bay Area is surrounded by golden hills that are often untouched, but only an arms length away. We, a group of Bay Area creative wedding professionals, decided to take a mid-season respite and refill our creative cup with a dream shoot that features some new and different things with which to inspire our clients. This shoot was photographed on both film for its dreamy qualities and digital for expediency. We combined the mediums in this gallery to show brides the seamless blending of hybrid photography, which allows for both cost effective services and true film range.

Before iPads and Pokemon GO, tree swings and warm afternoon breezes were one of the best memories of childhood summers. The quintessential symbol of carefree and happy, we incorporated a handmade rope swing with gorgeous vining bougainvillea and passion flower as a focal point for our model. To round out the look, we added vintage lanterns styled with tree of heaven clusters and more bougainvillea. Finding a hill with a lone, sturdy oak tree to provide an arm and canopy was the finishing touch that made it all feel romantic and heavenly!

The model’s pink champagne two piece dress is perfectly elegant yet playful with the beaded, French vintage inspired cropped camisole and a skirt made of layers upon layers of soft, lightweight tulle. Her light coverage, natural makeup look and loosely arrange low up-do accented with gorgeous handmade hair pieces gives her an organic, effortless look of beauty. Two bouquets were made to compliment this bride’s look — a sweet, but understated romantic arrangement and a more vibrant and textured bouquet. Both looks use the same color family, but feature different levels of vibrancy. Similarly, the menu and invitations showcase a watercolor floral scheme with gold flecked hand lettering to update traditional wedding paper design.

The tablescape is the real life embodiment of our vision of a perfect romantic dinner al fresco. Vintage French bistro chairs were given romantic flare when adorned with olive leaves and budding olives, while delicate, paper thin fuchsia bougainvillea added a feminine touch. The overflowing centerpiece of loosely arranged varieties of roses, tulips, tree of heaven, raspberries, and sweet peas made the rosé wine and lavender buds that much sweeter to sip! Because every dinner should end on a sweet note, the simple, two layered cake decorated with the most organic spray of jasmine vines and a single dusky pink lisianthus could not be more enticing!

Casey Brodley, Photographer

I’m not a traditional wedding photographer. My background and training is steeped in photo journalism, so that’s how I approach a wedding. My goal is to document the day, not stage it. I let moments unfold naturally, with minimal prom posing and minimal “say cheese” interference.

As a photo journalist, I come prepared for anything. Every wedding is different. I have witnessed full-grown men weep more times than I can count. I have seen smiles so wide that I’m concerned someone may burst a blood vessel. I have climbed mountains with all my gear. And this one time a sprinkler system was triggered during a ceremony.

As a wedding photographer, I walk into every job with the guarantee that I will witness pure joy. But more importantly, I walk into every job with the probability that my day will end with cake. I like to keep my cake-to-work ratio balanced. For health reasons.

Colorful Modern Palm Springs Wedding

Modern Weddings

Setting eyes on this wedding, we immediately thought it was just so fun: fun to look at and we’re sure that it was fun to be at, too! Gideon Photography captured this brightly-colored and modern Palm Springs wedding to our delight and it was clear that no design stone was left unturned by Amorology when it came to Katie Leclerc (of TV’s “Switched at Birth”) and Brian Habecost’s West Coast wedding. Pops of color were all over the place, from the darling bridesmaids’ dresses and bouquets by Twigg Botanicals, to that ultra-creative dessert table. This wedding is a bright pastel lover’s dream!

From the event designers, Amorology: We teamed up with Backup Backdrops to create three fun displays for ceremony, escort and dessert. Our simple ceremony wall with Plexiglas arrows alluded to our couple’s love of cycling and the idea of sharing the road together. Inspired by their love for playing Cards Against Humanity, we couldn’t help but make a “Katie and Brian Against Humanity” escort display! We had Peanut Press help us design and create oversized playing cards that served as the table names and had fill in the blank statements. Smaller playing cards were placed at our escort wall and held the guests names on one side and a noun listed on the other side. Guests were invited to find their table by pairing their card with the best matched table name. How fun is that? It was such a great way to get guests moving, talking and laughing at their seats! For dessert, we collaborated with Hey There Cupcake and Backup Backdrops again to display an array of yummy treats underneath a bicycle backdrop as another nod to Katie and Brian’s love for biking together.

During cocktail hour, guests enjoyed Cactus Coolers, colorful popsicles from Si Paletas and delicious bites from Room Forty. The popsicles were a life saver during the hot summer weather in Palm Springs! For the head dining table, we created a custom table runner hand painted by Peanut Press and adorned with living fruit and florals by Twigg Botanicals. And the mid-century tables from Folklore Vintage Rentals were a perfect match for the tabletop prettiness from Hostess Haven. Bicycle shaped save-the-dates from Pitbulls and Posies tied our cycling theme together and were complimented by bright, geometric custom stationary by Peanut Press.
