After last week’s Tex Mex inspiration board, and yesterday’s accompanying color palette finds, it seems only appropriate that the inspiration we have to share with you today is also full of fiesta flair! Desiree Dawn Events and Chelsey Boatwright Photography collaborated to bring this shoot at Grandview Gardens B&B to life, and we think you’ll agree that the bright colors, soft Latin influences, and tropical elements are a fresh and sophisticated take on South Florida wedding style. Kudos also to Millie V’s, who created the gorgeous fruit and floral arrangements and bouquets for this shoot!
Desiree was kind enough to share a bit more of the inspiration behind the shoot:
Our inspiration was from all of the beautiful combinations of Spanish and Latino cultures in South Florida – a Cabo Hacienda Fiesta! South Florida is just so lush and tropical almost year round, it seems silly not to enjoy all of the bright and happy colors of the greenery and fruits – and the people! We created a “Dinner for Two” scene showcasing beautiful pottery and fresh mangos – and Tequila Sunrise cocktails. A Tequila Tasting table provided “guests” with a chance to enjoy five tequilas – salt and lime included. And a “Toss Table” gives “guests” the option of choosing petals, oats, salts, rice crispies or lavender to toss towards the bride and groom. The bouquet was made of peonies, tulips, roses and lavender, and the table decor was made of palm leaves, roses, bougainvillea, tulips and artichokes! Our bride and groom, Sara and Kevin, were gracious enough to pose for some post-wedding shots, and they were a delight!
