Drop dead gorgeous weddings, stunning inspiration and the debut of. Yep, it’s been a pretty fabulous week here on SMP. So fabulous, in fact, that we couldn’t possibly bid adieu without adding just a little more spice to your weekend festivities. I’m talking the crazy beautiful stylings of and fab photos from - all coming together in a neon inspiration shoot that is oh-so-perfect for your upcoming nuptials OR that summer party. So, – and then we’ll see you back here on Sunday morning! xoxo
From… The concept for this styled shoot was a combination of our love for creative event spaces and color. For a while, we had been brainstorming ideas about developing a chic summer shoot that highlighted the latest color trend: neon. Because neon can be an intimidating color palette, we decided to pair it with gray and white to create a balance. Our combined colors ended up being a perfect fit for the venue we selected, a Philadelphia-area brewery with an industrial feel. We then reached out to other vendors to help create our vision.
For the shoot, we recreated a wedding reception from start to finish, featuring three settings: cocktail hour, dinner and dessert! The first was our “Snack Bar” for cocktail hour, which featured beer bottle escort hang tags, gourmet bar snacks, a vintage scooter and wagon and a bucket of beers with custom labels. The tablescape featured bright, floral arrangements from Roberts Florals, a neon backdrop, colorblocked plates, a neon scarf runner, a chalkboard table number and menu and steel chairs with a neon heart garland. Dani of Sweet Dani B jumped on board to design a custom “Neon Sweets Table” and matching invitation. Teaming up with Carrie of Goodie Box Bake Shop, this adorable dessert buffet featured a delicious wedding cupcake tower set atop a beer barrel, a pink and yellow heart garland backdrop, neon cake pops, a beer and cookie pairing, and marshmallow topped beer mug cookie favors. Dani also created a custom invitation, which was designed to look like a beverage coaster. The element that tied all the settings together? A shiny, bright, neon heart!
The bride and groom, Sorya and John, are a real life couple getting married in 2013. They are so cute together, and their personalities fit the photo shoot perfectly! The bride’s dress was from H&M, but the look was all about her accessories — from the neon heels and jewelry to the unique bouquet! John’s laid back look featured a shirt from Express, a neon pocket square and neon shoelaces. We are so happy with how the shoot came together and it would not have been possible without the help of all the wonderful vendors. Cheers to love!
