From Lovelyfest Event Design... This wedding shoot was inspired by the whimsy of summer- soft pastels, big blue skies, and pool-side lounging. We wanted this shoot to have a cotton-candy pastel look, and to incorporate a romantic retro feel. Taking inspiration from photographers like Gray Malin, we created a soft pastel palette with water being the central focus of a lot of this shoot! From the bright blue pool water behind the sweets table, to the dining table on the dock of a beautiful lush pond, topped with adorable natural lily pads. We incorporated hints of a retro feel within the bride's soft curls and simple makeup, and in the dining tables with bright gold stars on lucite looking ghost chairs. We just knew we had to get the adorable Bon Puf to bring in the cotton-candy aspect of our shoot, and her cheery face did not disappoint! Her large poofs of cotton candy matched perfectly with the color scheme and added that bit of fluff that we wanted! Not to mention it is a super cute idea to have her little cotton candy cart at your wedding! We took this cotton candy feel and also incorporated it into the linens, using the most ruffled, full, and gorgeous linens we could find! Atop the dining table, Borrowed Blu provided the perfect antique place settings and gold flatware, adorned with vintage lucite place cards and lovely florals by Noonan's Designs. We accented this glittery table with pastel confetti and tall gold candelabras with bubblegum pink taper candlesticks. All contributing to the adorably retro and fun feel of our shoot!

We hope this shoot inspires brides and grooms alike that the retro whimsical feel of summer can be recreated at any time of the year and is such a fun way to relive the best season of the year!!
