We’ve made it to yet another wedding inspiration Friday feature! I am currently writing this to you from a Starbucks in Rosslyn, VA, as I ponder what it’s like to get to work from home/remote locations and be super jealous of those that get to! But I digress and get back to the task at hand, an offbeat wedding from my home state, New Jersey [please refrain from any Jersey Shore comments].

Thanks to You Are Raven photography & Two Bright Lights and a slew of other vendors, I get to share this beautifully offbeat wedding that has so much amazing floral design [with a true explosion of bright colors]. I know you guys are going to love this one ~ especially any bride & grooms-to-be out there that are planning on having LOTS of bright colors in their wedding color palette.

The bridesmaids wore bright teal dresses with cardigans [i love this look!], the bride’s pearl engagement ring is truly unique, and the bright, mismatched floral centerpieces are to DIE for. Enjoy!

Thanks again to You Are Raven Photography & Two Bright Lights for bringing us the colorful wedding floral design inspiration this Friday! Hope everyone has a fabulous [and hopefully restful] memorial day weekend! I am off to perform some bridesmaid duties in Pittsburgh :)



  1. I love the cardigans with the dresses, it’s really nice too since bridesmaids dresses are typically sleeveless and means it’s cold!
