Ice Cream Inspired Wedding Ideas - Taylor Rae Photography  - smitten-mag.com_0563

Wedding cakes are a classic sweet choice, and there are some beautiful cakes out there.  But what if you want something extra fun?  Or perhaps not a fan of cake?  So why not give your guests the ultimate in dessert options with an ice cream cart on a bicycle?  You can offer a few flavors, toppings, and who can’t resist a fresh waffle cone?  We love how this inspiration started with the striped umbrella topped bike and bright pastels of the ice creams, then used lots of beautiful flowers and fresh ideas.

Enchanting Sea Oasis Bridal Inspiration - Rachel Haylie Photography - smitten-mag.com_0531

This enchanting inspiration takes place on a hidden beach on the Oregon coast.  The light and airy film images, thoughtful styling, and pale neutral hues are perfect for a dreamy summer wedding.  The illusion back of the dress is sexy and romantic.  Setting the table on the rocks is the perfect modern picnic elopement, but if you rather have tables of guests, these are gorgeous ideas to bring the salty air tabletop.  A bare wood table is a must with gauzy runner woven among the succulents, driftwood, and occasional seashell.  Complete the look with white flowers and gray green foliage.  Keep it elegant and save the cabana stripes for the honeymoon.

Here TMInspired Photography explains the inspiration for their color trend workshop:
I held a workshop for photographers in Southern California to help guide them towards their ideal clientele, and focused on my favorite thing: chasing after love and light with clients. We talked about setting up a styled shoot, and of course had one set up with lots of pretty details for the photographers to build their portfolio. I love to bring out genuine emotion from the couples I work with, so there is a lot of movement, laughter, and having them look at each other instead of me. I always look for a real couple who is deeply in love with each other for styled shoots, and strive to make every shoot feel like a date night (even one happening in a middle of a workshop).
For this shoot, we used the Pantone Colors of 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity, as the decor inspiration.  The Bride wore a strapless wedding gown in blush, and her bouquet used just the right amount of Pantone colors to compliment the dress.  Even the chairs at the sweetheart table were just the right hue. To capture lots of fun poses, the couple went exploring in the hill tops. It was an overcast day, so it called for lots of snuggles and little kisses. They danced together in the tall grass. He hummed a tune in her ear as they swayed. As it became dusk, the sky took part in our pale pink and periwinkle colored day.
