Google+ Summer Blues Wedding Inspiration by Sarah McKenzie - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

My husband is a summer baby through and through – he’d rather we just skipped right on over winter and moved straight back into the warmer months. Luckily for him, in the South, it does seem like our summer months stretch on and on, filled with bright blue skies, days at the beach, and sudden thunderstorms that send us running for cover. Sarah McKenzie and the ladies of Two Be Wed designed this wedding inspiration around the gorgeous blue tones of a Southern summer – just the thing to tide us over now that Labor Day has come and gone!

From Sarah McKenzie: Ashley of Two Be Wed and I collaborated with some amazing vendors for our Summer Blues inspired shoot for the Develop Retreat for Photographers. Summer Blues was inspired by the many shades of blue found in a Southern summer, from the ocean to the rain, from a bright sunny day to a dark moody thunderstorm. No color has quite the range of expression, from vibrant cobalt to deep indigo. We wanted to show its range by using different shades, patterns, and textures. Korie of the Weekend Type created it perfectly in the invitation suite and escort cards with a watercolor blue ombre. The palette provided a soothing ground for the warm floral tones to pop right off of – clean and classic whites with pops of orange mastered by Maxit Floral Design. Continuing the mixing of colors to our tablescape, a patterned napkin and individual ranunculus created a cozy and comforting invitation to the table. Our cake was minimal but soft and elegant, just like our bride and bridesmaids. An effortless Oscar De La Renta reminded us of soft cloud floating in a sky of jewel tones. This shoot captures the essence of an elegant Southern Summer Wedding.

    The deep blues are lovely and I like that the ruffles and lace soften it. The lace on the bride’s dress is gorgeous.
