A Bridal Brunch from Briana Marie
July 5, 2013
Should I be concerned that a part of me wants to tie the knot just so I have an excuse to indulge in the girliest of revelries? Ones like this bridal brunch, which is simply dripping in pretty and beyond adorable. Inspired by macarons of all things, this bride-to-be's mama put together this sherbert-coloured affair and you can officially consider me impressed. Curly cue chair covers, co-ordinating outfits and brightly coloured beverages set the stage for a truly unforgettable morning. Beautifully captured by Briana Marie, the gallery is definitely the place to be. Oh and be sure to check out the wedding of this gorgeous Bride to her love right now on Style Me Pretty!

From Briana... All I could think about as I photographed this sweet bridal brunch was the incredible colors! Inspired by the pretty hued macarons, Amandas mom spared no detail. Even their outfits matched! The colors of the the Carneros Inn went perfectly with the theme. This bridal brunch was such a great way for the girls to kick off the weekend!

From the Mother of the Bride… The inspiration for the Bridesmaid Brunch was definitely macarons. I loved the idea of incorporating them in my daughter's wine country wedding. Since the bridesmaids all lived in different cities, we made the decision to have the Bridesmaids Brunch the day before the wedding in Napa. Since the entire wedding party was staying at The Carneros Inn, we wanted to take advantage of their Hilltop Dining Room and Harvest Patio with its picturesque, pastoral views yet clean, modern vibe. I also knew I wanted it to be very feminine and loved the combination of pinks and corals, which tied in perfectly with the macaron theme. Once I saw the Wildflower Linens products, I knew we had to use their sherbet curly willow chair covers and coordinating pieces. The table linens pulled in a yellow reminiscent of mimosas which we served. Literally, the day before I was in the Carneros Inn's Market and saw the Izzie sodas and arranged to have them served as well since they looked so perfect with our decor and sherbet colored striped paper straws

As far as the macarons, our florist recommended a local vendor, Dominique's Sweets, to custom make them to our tastes and color scheme. They were packaged in coordinating salmon colored boxes with white organza ribbon and were a huge hit!
