Google+ Memorial Day :: Turquoise and Red Inspiration Shoot - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

This bright and summery turquoise + red shoot is perfect for Memorial Day, hmm? I love that the designer behind the goodies, Allison Barnhill, modeled this inspiration shoot off the dream wedding she would have loved to have for her big day eight years ago — “whimsical, lighthearted, and filled with unexpected touches.” What can I say, we wedding people love to dream!

Beautiful stationery made by Allison set the cheery tone.

I am loving the team’s use of carnations! They’re often discarded as an ugly flower, but if you mass them together in one color, they can be beautiful — and cost-conscious!

Thank you so much to Allison for sending this over, and to Elizabeth for the lovely photos! We hope you’re celebrating somewhere sunny, readers!
