And oh so much more…
Brittany and Cedric are getting married this August. We have been busily planning their wedding to meet her “romantic” theme. Oh, I cannot wait for this beauty! It’s going to be drop dead gorgeous, with blush linens, wine colored flowers and lots of candle light. Meg, of Burke Photography, and I wanted to surprise these two at their engagement session with a dazzling and sweet shoot.
A glam urban picnic is the design you see here. Tons of candle light and shimmering sparkles are the foundation of this classy look. We spray painted some old crates with a metallic finish then layered it with mercury glass votives and crystal bud vases. Brittany once told me that she and Cedric can’t get enough strawberry cheesecake- I mean, who can’t right? So instead of Mason jar dessert s (one of her inspirations on Pinterest), we used crystal punch cups- it’s the fancier alternative of the standard Mason jar desserts. What do you think about the sparkly linen instead of a blanket? We absolutely adore it.
Pinterest Board to Reality:
You can easily get lost in the wedding Pinterest world. And sometimes themes and colors fight each other for a bride’s attention. For example, when I looked at Brittney’s Pinterest board I saw pretty rustic and stylish glam. Also bright colored wild looking bouquets and light tight flower arrangements. I knew that Britney was striving for an overall theme of romance and in the end I came up with the glam urban picnic design.
