After the big day comes lots and lots of anniversaries with your sweetie and what better way to celebrate than with some sweet rooftop feting? Jennifer Blair Photography teamed up with Perfectly Taylor’d and Flowers by Shirley Page for a gorgeous skyline dinner built for two. Technically this is inspiration for a wedding but we thought it perfect for an anniversary shindig, maybe an uber romantic date night or incorporating friends and having an intimate dinner party under the stars. The blush colored sparkle mixed with succulents and just the right amount of twinkle lights; it makes for a party done so, so right. Catch it all right here.
From Jennifer Blair Photography… This session was birthed from my life-long love affair with my hometown, Jacksonville. The beautiful St. Johns River runs right through downtown and frames the blue skyline so well. For this session, I wanted to take advantage of my gorgeous city by creating a chic rooftop affair. I loved the idea of creating a soft, romantic feel in such an urban environment. Once I found the Badgley Mischka gown, I knew we were headed in the right direction. The fabulous, gold, sparkling gown was contrasted with green succulents, whites and soft tones. For the table, we incorporated neutrals, gold accents and simple floral designs to give a romantic feel. Over the table for two we built a canopy of hanging lights and flowing tulle. What could be more romantic than a dinner under string lights on a rooftop? (It is definitely a look that can be recreated by DIY-savvy brides! Plus, I was able to build it by myself.) As the sun began to drop, our couple danced the night away under the city lights. That beautiful dress sparkled even more as the sun began to fade.
