Wedding Ideas: Bridesmaid Dress Color Spectrum

Choose a color spectrum and have every bridesmaid pick out any dress they love in that palette. Either make a mood board by cutting out shades from magazines, or drop by a paint store to grab some swatches. Then copy and mail it to each of the girls and let them go shopping! Make sure to have everyone text you a photo of their winner before cutting off the tags – just in case two girls choose the same dress. We loved how the flowers pulled all the colors together perfectly. To see more from Elizabeth & Marc's rustic wedding, click here!

Christina & Joe

Christina and Joe's elegant wedding day unfolded in Des Moines, IA.  The ceremony took place at Sacred Heart Church with reception following at the Wakonda Club. Christina's style was radiant throughout the day. Everything from her hot pink heels to the playfully modern decor of the reception. One of our personal favorite details from the day was the customized Jones Soda bottles (showcasing an assortment of engagement photos in multiple flavors) placed with each table setting as a keepsake – we have ours on display in the studio! We chose a brightly-colored area of town to photograph portraits to match the bright flowers and fun-loving personalities of the wedding party. The speeches at the reception were among the most hilarious and most moving we've ever heard. There was an awful lot of love on display at the wedding and it's apparent that the couple has a great support network of friends and family. Christina and Joe, thanks for entrusting us with the privilege of capturing your spectacular wedding. We wish you the best and lots of fun on your marital adventure!
