Carousel Inspiration Shoot by Amorology + Sunday Romance
December 26, 2011

We hope you had a magical holiday weekend!  We are going to keep the magic going with this whimsical photo shoot by the talented folks of Amorology.  I couldn't think of a sweeter sentiment for a wedding than "Love makes the world go round."  This creative group of vendors brought that theme to life with carousel-inspired decor and a fun, interactive maypole.  The colors are cheerful and sweet, the flowers just beyond gorgeous and the details are an absolute delight.  Sunday Romance brought a sunny glow to every photo and it is making our Monday that much brighter.  Start your week off right in the full gallery!

From Amorology...Whimsical carousel horses were the driving force behind this "Marry Go Round" inspired shoot . We played with the saying of "love makes the world go around" and included a May Pole for an afternoon wedding activity. Soft pastel pink and mint green lent a candy-like feel across the tablescape and into the flowers, which consisted of peonies, dahlias, clover, hydrangea, and roses. Bright shades of yellow and orange also added a playful touch to the dreamy pastels. The stripes on the napkins created the illusion of poles and lent themselves to the horse china. Sweet details, such as the "Giddy Up" sherbet and Seven Up float greeted guests at each place setting! Playful pink Cotton Candy cupcakes alluded to the nature of a merry go round with horse graphics that stuck into each delicious treat!

When searching for a venue for the shoot, Leo Carillo Ranch seemed to be the perfect fit and played to the carousel horses but in an unexpected way. We loved the gorgeous gown by Lazaro as well and the softness and twirl it added to the shoot.
