With brunch weddings being one of today’s hottest trends, brunch was the leading inspiration behind this shoot. Vibrant and natural colors was the second. For the cost conscious couple, brunch weddings pose the best compromise of on-trend and on-budget. For the same reason brunch weddings have become such a craze, we predict they’ll remain a wedding mainstay for years to come. Because really, who doesn’t love brunch? A pop of color, bubbly, breakfast food, and love! Best served before noon.
Inspiration shoots are such a fun time for the vendor team to try new things, have fun, and flex those creative muscles. This team did just that! From the can-I-drink-them-all cocktails, to the towering crepe cake, and the stunning floral arrangements, we can’t get enough! Bright pinks, oranges, yellows, and greens... A palette inspired by, and then surrounded by delicious foods. No detail was left untouched and Leslie of Leslie D. Photography captured it all perfectly on film.
A local favorite for their farm to table cuisine, The Farm at South Mountain also provided the quintessential oasis in the desert for the shoot. A one of a kind luscious green, botanical ambiance in the middle of the desert - it was the perfect backdrop for the day. Sarah's Garden brought the brightest of the bunch, creating eye popping combinations of color that graced the luscious tablescape and a ceremony arch that could have stolen the show. Set atop the luxurious Nuovo Peach linen from La Tavola, was the original inspiration for the entire design. The new blush Olivia linen, we used for the napkins. You heard that right - the entire design was sprung from the napkin print. Every standout needs the right backdrop, and we couldn’t be happier with how the napkin and the linen support each other in this design. These days, you don’t need everything to be custom to be extraordinary, and the semi-custom paper in this shoot from Foil & Ink perfectly demonstrates that. We love an option that saves some money, and still includes detail like watercolor and can include gold foil, embossing, and cotton paper. Classy and budget friendly, the winningest of combinations. With such a bright table, bursting with floral and food, we had to phone a friend for some complementary textures and colors. Both Event Rents and The Confetti Studio answered the call, providing accents in spades. Adding natural elements like wood chargers, breadboards, and bowls, paired with ornate crystal glassware, we kept comfort and classy in harmony. Linen and wooden chairs supported an off-white plate combo featuring stunning detail, flanked by vintage flatware. All in, we can’t picture a more brunch-worthy combination. Is it even brunch without a good cocktail? Couple of Bartenders doesn’t think so. Matching the colors and textures perfectly, they complimented each seat with a unique cheers-worthy and potent creation. And the food. Oh the food. Brunch wouldn’t be brunch without more tempting food than one should ever eat. And since this was brunch, we tossed out the traditional cake for a towering stack of ombre colored crepes, by Dessert First by Veronica. “I hate donuts” said no one, so cake donuts and jelly filled donut holes joined the spread, helping ensure no sweet tooth was left behind.
In the end, we found ourselves reflecting on the brunch wedding trend and thinking to ourselves that it’s popular for a reason. Surround by the most quintessential love event (wedding) and the most nom-worthy of foods (brunch), what could go wrong? Cheers to the perfect couple. Weddings & brunch, that is.
We are SO proud of this shoot. We feel it really is one of the most beautiful things we have ever helped create. We hope you enjoy these photos as much as we do.
