Dazzling Hot Pink Wedding Inspiration + A Pop of Confetti

When it comes to all things girly, hot pink, gold and confetti are the name of the game. And it’s exactly what this shoot from Caroline Lima is filled to the brim with. Hot pink bow shoes, coral charm peonies and gold rimmed glasses… did I mention there’s a gold-petaled pink ombre cake, too? You can find every lovely bit right here in the gallery.


From Unveiled Design & EventsThis inspiration shoot was dreamt up using traditional concepts with a fun twist. We used hot pink, a dazzling gold, plus a pop of fun with the confetti. A summer wedding set in a magnificent backyard, this couple truly enjoyed their day. Our bride, Elizabeth, was beaming in a traditional champagne lace Stella York gown and wore Nina shoes in a saucy shade of pink. Our groom, Jeff, wore a sleek tuxedo with a custom made skinny tie -huge in the fashion world right now! We decided to use their special family heirloom china to draw inspiration from. These fabulous New Zealand peonies, pink roses, baby hydrangea, hypericum berries, and colorful orange and pink ranunculus made the bouquets stand out. The four tiered wedding cake stole the show and was a true piece of art.

Lakeside Engagement Session

So, these two are adorable.  That kind of adorable that is reserved for sweeter than sweet duos that were set up by their parents and spend their e-session frolicking around the great outdoors, pups in tow.  Oh, and they’ll also throw caution to the wind and jump head first into a lake, just because.  In other words? You’re going to love them.  See their sweet e-sesh captured by Robyn Van Dyke right here.

From Robyn Van Dyke Photography Jamie and Wes were set up by their parents, and it actually worked! They are now engaged to be married and they are head over heels in love with each other, the outdoors, and their doggies! Riley (the Golden Retriever) was a gift to Jamie from Wes, and one of their favorite things to do is taking their dogs on walks together! In fact, Wes proposed to Jamie at the exact spot where they had their first date while they were out walking their pups! So they, of course, had to incorporate their adorable doggies into their engagement session as well as their love for the outdoors! I love that they brought a canoe along for their engagement session and even jumped into the lake at the end!
