Carnival Inspired Wedding full of Color

Sometimes a theme isn’t shouted, but instead is more of a whisper. This carnival themed affair crafted by Shannon Leahy Events and Cherries Flowers is understated, letting the vibrant color palette of pink and aqua hues and small touches really set the stage. But maybe the best detail of all? That would be the edible cotton candy escort cards. Genius, and so beautifully photographed by Ryan Ray. See it here.


From Shannon Leahy EventsFor Kassandra & Michael, St. Vincent’s in San Rafael was the perfect location for their fun-filled carnival-themed wedding. Filled with vibrant colors and classic carnival elements, this beautiful wedding was an affair to remember for all of their guests.

The papers for the wedding included whimsical and light details based off of the architecture of the space. Kassandra and Miles’s light-hearted personalities were revealed in individual cotton candy escort cards and carnival games for their guests to enjoy during cocktail hour.  Arriving in a vintage bride car, Kassandra looked stunning in a beautiful empire gown with floral details, while Michael looked handsome and collected in hues of blue.
