Cigars, tequila and Spanish flair are the stars in this brightly colored and festive styled shoot from Sue & Lou Events. The amazing, vibrant floral arrangements from Cole Dewey Design adorning the table, fountain and model were breathtaking! The latin tile inspired invitation suite by No Regrets and the ever adorable hand-painted cake and miniature cactus cupcakes from Mishelle Handy Cakes added to the overall theme! We can almost smell the tapas and sangria from Aunt Pitty Pat’s Catering through the pages of the magazine.

For a modern take on the classic greenery color scheme, we’re loving this unique marble element addition to this styled shoot set at Grassroots Vintage Events! Heavily laden with geometric lines and brass and crystal accents, Hope Photography perfectly captured the fresh approach to this trend-filled wedding inspiration in everything from the detailed decor to the eye-catching tablescape. Along with coordinating marble print menus, Laurel & Marie designed a beautiful grey, black and white paper suite in the same printed swirl. An architecturally sculpted cake made to partially resemble a marble block from The Round House Bakery stood as the perfect centerpiece to a table full of treats. But sweeter than the cake was the model bride’s stunning look – a gorgeous off-the-shoulder sweetheart neckline gown from Chantilly Couture with delicate waist embellishments and a full, airy skirt. Her hair and makeup by Brushed Salon were kept simple with a subtle smokey eye, nude lip and loosely swept updo to play off the ease of the shoot. Pin your favorites from this major trend-forward inspiration! Enjoy!

This soft Southwestern inspired tabletop is sure to bring out the boheme in any bride. These light hues and edgy accents bring the desert skyline to the heart of Oklahoma City atop the rooftop at Plenty Mercantile. The wood grain texture in the farm tables from Mood Party Rentals layered with their linen napkins, rose gold flatware, stemware and neutral plates alike is sure to inspire your guests with Southwestern flair. Kristin Morgan, owner of Yellow Rose Co. Events, designed a dreamy table arrangement and created floral elements your guests won’t forget. White leather booties paired with a gown from J.J. Kelly Bridal Salon, a silver headpiece and gold cuff make for the perfect bohemian bridal accessories. Round House Bakery designed the sunset pink watercolor cake trio and adorned them with succulents. Kaydee Jean Makeup & Skin created a look that is both striking and natural – something any bride would look great sporting and Profile Concierge Hair Services gave the bride loose, untamed curls. Bringing geometric elements into the mix, Loni Jane Creative was inspired to create an invitation suite incorporating a Southwest color palette and trendy modern accents. Deisy Photography captured this incredible day on film alongside Stout Multimedia who filmed the awesome behind the scenes video footage. We couldn’t love this tabletop design by Yellow Rose Co. Events any more. Press play for more behind the scenes footage!
