This citrus-inspired shoot is a little lesson in color. The takeaway here? Layering bright, like-minded hues is a complete and total “do.” Add in the talents of Vanessa Noel EventsKissing Bees and Alissa Bell Press, and you’ll be left with quite possibly the prettiest, peppiest lovefest EVER.

From Anna Delores PhotographyVanessa of Vanessa Noel Events in Bakersfield, CA was initially inspired by watercolor art in bright pops of pink and orange.  Ideas for a summery, citrus-inspired wedding design weren’t far behind. Vanessa, along with Emily from Anna Delores Photography, worked to create a number of DIY accents for this shoot, including a hand-painted watercolor table runner, gold-dipped centerpiece vases, watercolor placecards, a ribbon backdrop for the ceremony, and spray-painted orange bentwood chairs.  A wooden farm table, colorful florals by Kissing Bees, and custom letterpress invitations by Alissa Bell complete this effervescent design. The shoot took place at a private estate in Bakersfield in the central California valley, captured by Anna Delores Photography.
