Capitol Inspiration: Vivacious Pink Wedding Design & Decorations

Well we’ve made it. Somehow. Barely. If you don’t follow me on twitter or instagram, Andy & I have been going through a bit of a home renovation and it’s been QUITE the week. We have no working kitchen appliances, have been mostly living out of our upstairs (until yesterday, then it became the basement) and on Wednesday our AC stopped working (but thankfully it is now fixed). So needless to say, this Friday is one that I really didn’t think I would see, but couldn’t be happier now that it’s finally here.

So though I am pretty sleepy, with a scratchy throat and an eye twitch that has been going since Monday, the floors are ALMOST done and to help us all get to the weekend, I have a super bright & modern wedding shoot to share for today’s Capitol Inspiration.

A special thanks to MeShenee Photography for submitting this one via Two Bright Lights.

Details from the designers:

We teamed up to design a non-traditional Fall/Winter wedding in a bright palette using Pantone’s 2013 “vivacious,” a rich fuchsia color. The shoot aimed to celebrate an exciting Urban wedding in pinks and fuchsia, with silver, chartreuse and yellow accents.

This inspiration photo shoot celebrates an organic combination of Indie wedding designers (gowns, jewelry, florals, sweets) – a natural blend of modern and sustainable design.

The main aim of this shoot is to inspire brides to include thrifted/recycle components that can be seen in a modern palette and decor style. Most times when you hear “Green” wedding you think of rustic or vintage decor, our idea is that you can always find a modern or contemporary twist to green wedding decor as well.

Flowers come from organic farms, and the wedding gown is designed by one of Ohio’s up and coming Indie designers, Solitary Pearl.

Natalie & Melissa’s Hot Pink Wedding Brunch at the Eastern Shore

Another week has come and gone. This one surprised me – it was one of my first FULL weeks back at my day job, and I thought it was going to CRAWL. Fortunately, it blew by in a whirl and another Capitol Inspiration ~ Friday’s Wedding Inspiration post is upon us already!

Hoping everyone has some nice weekend plans in store. Andy & I are off to traverse the Garden State [our hometown – NJ! What? What! … ok, i’ll stop], while I attempt to recover from my first Bikram yoga class last night [good LORD I have NEVER sweated like that in my life]. Anyone else got some fly weekend plans?

While you ponder and hopefully share, please enjoy today’s offbeat wedding inspiration, courtesy of  Andi Grant Photography. Andi submitted [via Two Bright Lights] this beautiful brunch reception wedding that took place on the Eastern Shore, after the beautiful couple, Natalie & Melissa, had their civil service in Washington, DC.
