Dusty Blue Chic and Laidback Wedding

Dusty blue and gold — hues that are great for a chic spring or summer wedding. This color combo is not only romantic but has a fresh and effortless vibe. Jana Ingraham, the event designer, did an amazing job with putting everything together. She added the lush of greens to the dusty blue and gold combo that gave the whole setup character. I hope this soft and delicate styled wedding, captured by Anna Holcombe Photography, will leave you having a lovely day!

The Bride and Groom’s Ensembles

The bride’s dress was an ombre Hayley Paige dress that faded from an ivory into an oyster blue that fit the shoot perfectly! Also, note how they strayed from the traditional one colored wedding dress. Ombre, hand-painted, and printed wedding dress is another big trend for 2017. Meanwhile, to match the bride’s and the motif, the groom donned a blue suit paired with brown shoes — such a refreshing sight!

The Venue

The clean and lush setup looked intimate and organic (my dream wedding tbh), but at the same time breathtaking! The subtle vines creeping on to the furnitures is whimsical that’ll make you and your guests feel so relaxed and refreshed. Jana is such a genius for setting up this beauty — kudos to her creative team also.

The Charming Cake

This dusty blue cake is definitely a scene stealer — strategically placed and decorated at that! This four-tier beauty is adorned with fresh leaves every layer to carry on with the organic bohemian theme. You should check ou Creative Cake Design by Tammy Hodge if you want your cake spruced up for the big day!

Remember These Tips!

  1. Don’t be afraid to incorporate a design that fits your personality as a couple, but may not be a “popular” trend based on social media.v Who knows, you may actually start a new trend!
  2. When booking your vendors, trust in a planner to help with the amazing connections they have through previous experience. They are the perfect person to pair you with the vendors that best fit your preferred design, as well as your budget.
  3. Personalize your wedding day through specialty cocktails, signage, party favors, welcome bags, midnight snacks, dances, etc. Guests love to see you shine through the details!
