Orange You Glad It's Summer?


I recently had the honor of being included in a wedding inspiration photo shoot featuring some of the area's top talent. Kathleen of North Photography and Merriam of The Little Purple Cake Shoppe hatched the idea over cupcakes and set out to gather all of the necessary details to make it amazing.


The orange and lime theme is fresh and colorful- perfect for a Summer wedding on the lake! I love all the light and airy details plus the antique touches that add just the right amount of romance. Hints of teal make the orange and lime really pop and adds just enough contrast for a truly gorgeous setting.

But enough talk and on to the photos! But first, here is a list of all the area professionals that were involved:

The Little Purple Cake Shoppe

Just Weddings Floral Design

Fiori Bridal Boutique

Truly Noted Stationary

The Grand Isle Lake House

North Photography


The shoot took place at The Grand Isle Lake House in Grand Isle. It is a beautiful spot overlooking the lake. Set away from the nearest town it is a serene and peaceful location. It also offers rooms for your guests to stay in and booking the entire Inn is definitely the way to go and offers you the most bang for your buck. My Brother-In-Law was married here a few Summers ago and I can say it was one of the most memorable weddings I have ever attended!


I designed a pocketfold style invitation for the shoot, but it is not your traditional pocketfold. I took a patterned pocket and adhered it to the inside of a folded invite. I love the bright green floral pattern with the hints of orange and the faded, antique illustration with the bride and groom's names.


Gorgeous floral bouquet (and all other flowers) were done by Just Weddings Floral Design. The teal and lace wrap really make this bouquet special.


Dress and shoes provided by Fiori Bridal (my favorite wedding dress shop). The necklace and earrings were custom made by Fiori as well- something I never knew they offered, but what a fabulous service!


These gorgeous cake jars from The Little Purple Cake Shop look so yummy! I also designed a menu for the place settings.


I love the idea of using oranges (or any kind of fruit or vegetable) for the name cards. I cut these leaves out of metallic paper and they are attached with colorful pins. Such an easy and fresh way to make your tables special.


Fun, custom labels hung off of the cake jars.


Merriam and I collaborated for the Bride and Groom signs. I created the frame and name part and she painted the wooden signs for them to go on. I love the ribbon and floral touches!
