So lovelies, the World Cup has well and truly started and unless you have a groom who cares nothing about football (erm… tell us where you’ve found him, please!), if you are based in the US , you’d know that today its going to be feeeever! 🙂 USA is playing against Ghana, so to keep the fever going, Linen and Silk Weddings is giving you an American style backyard inspiration shoot with a traditional palette of red, white and blue, beautifully shot by dani. fine photography and designed & planned by the creative planners at Engaged Connecticut, Kia Martinson & Jennifer McAdam.
Over to Dani who will tell you more about the inspiration about this shoot.
We wanted the shoot to feel fresh with lots of details and bright colours; to that end, we worked with some of the best wedding venders in New England. We spiced up this basic American theme with vintage nuances and modern sensibilities, with charming DIY details like pinwheel place cards, pouches of homemade confetti and old time glass bottle sodas.
No wedding would be complete without a sumptuous spread and this one included a medley of desserts comprising of artisanal cakes from A Little Something Bakery and as well as some colourful old time treats from Sweet Emotions Candy Shop. Other delectable delights were presented buffet style by Eclectic Tastes Catering. Every great event has some kind of libations and this backyard wedding boasted beautiful ruby red signature cocktails as well as a variety of old fashion glass bottle sodas from one of the oldest independent American soda companies, Hosmer Mountain Soda.
The lush, bold floral arrangements were created by Azalea Floral Design. Props, antiques and other well placed treasures, supplied by General Eclectic, made for a fantastic overall ambiance and detail shots that were full of character.
Thank you dani. fine photography for sharing this fun inspiration photo shoot with us! I love the way those all-American vintage details have been given a contemporary twist. And, a bride and groom in the pool?! Awesome!!! I’m waiting for the day one of my couples will do just that 🙂
If you’re supporting USA tonight, hope the game goes well! 🙂
Baci e abbracci,
