I get asked by people all the time if I have a "Favorite" wedding. I have lots of favorites, however I thought I'd show you 2 of my favorite outdoor summer weddings. I'm showing 2 because they really tie for first in my favorites list. Some other time I'll have to show you some of my favorite indoor weddings.
Okay, so up first is the wedding I nicknamed The Starburst Wedding. If you don't know why, then you need to go eat a piece of Starburst candy:) I had to dig a little, this wedding was a few years ago, and I still couldn't find all the pictures:(
This particular bride actually let me pick her colors. Yes that happens more often than you would think. Basically I was given a list of her favorite colors and I went ahead and picked 3 of them. I also was told she is a fun and bright person.
Fuschia Pink - Canary Yellow - Soda Pop Orange
If your wondering the bride and her family absolutely loved it. They thought it fit both their backyard and their daughter perfectly. They had so many compliments from their guests they were over joyed. Which only made me and my crew just all smiled that day/night!
If your wondering why this one tops my list. Well I have to say using candy as the theme and then the beautiful surroundings I had to work with. These colors just pop the word FUN!
|This is an aerial view. The guests came down a U shape hill that was lined with|
sheppards hooks and bows that matched the rest - I couldn't find these pics.
I'm actually standing at the top of the waterfall in this picture. I loved that thing!
|Another aerial view, this one a bit closer up of how we did the tables. We alternated|
the colors so their were a few different table color combinations.
Hard to see but we did the banquet tables in the back overlapped to look like starburst:)
|Another view of the eating, refreshment and candy bar area.|
You can't see it but there is a 2nd level similar to this one that is was just a table
eating area for the guests on the 2nd floor.
|Just the entrance book sign-in area. Nothing fancy just simple.|
-VICTORIAN LILAC AND CANARY YELLOW FUN ELEGANCE-
Okay, so my 2nd favorite wedding was one that I again never met the bride. Her mother and I designed the wedding. Mom said to me, "I am paying for it and my daughter doesn't care as long as it looks nice, so we are going to design the dream backyard wedding I always wanted." And she did!
Mom had chosen Victorian Lilac and a lighter yellow. I talked her into the Canary Yellow because it matched the Victorian Lilac a bit better and gave things more of a pop!
The fact that I used a triple arch backdrop in both of these weddings was just by chance. Why is this one on the top of my favorites for outdoor weddings? Well I loved the colors, and it all blended together so beautifully and we had the space we needed to make everything fit and look nice.
|There were about 10 banquet tables throughout that we just did in white|
linens that dropped to the ground. These were used from everything from
the dinner bar, drink tables, candy bar, gift, photo etc.. tables
|I do all of the floral arrangements we use at the brides weddings.|
This one was one I did myself:) These are all done days in advance
They take too long to wait until the day of.
|I forgot to get a picture but we did a beautiful candy area, and used|
my old fashion candy cart. I am still kicking myself for not getting the pictures on that
It was one of my most favorite candy bar set ups!
So those are my two favorite Outdoor Weddings. Not to say many of the others weren't nice, because they were, but probably I am drawn to both of these more for the colors we used, and some of the creative liberties I was able to take:)
Purple and Yellow weddings are some of the most popular color combinations here in Utah for several years running!
However, I would absolutely love to do another "Starburst" wedding someday:) I loved those colors together!
