Summer wedding bouquet

When you hear the word rustic, do pineapples come to mind? In this beachside shoot they do, and can we say it makes total sense? Driftwood and pineapples and the sand beneath your toes… Sounds like heaven to us. As winning as this combo is, there are actually very practical reasons behind all the details Laura of Kennedy Events and Design dreamt up. Check ’em out in Emily Chastain’s photos…

Laura says, As a southern girl, I love the symbolism of the pineapple, which has been a quintessential representation of hospitality dating back to colonial times. In this shoot, we took this symbol outside of the plantation and feature the pineapple in a natural beach setting… The guest experience is an important aspect of this hospitality-themed shoot. Guests would receive this classically designed invitation suite featuring an amazing pineapple envelop liner. The welcome guest bag features coastal snacks, a beach towel, and a driftwood calligraphy tag. Also, calligraphy driftwood place cards display each guest’s place name.

The pineapples on the table rep a tradition of having pineapple centerpieces to welcome dinner guests, and dried pineapple flowers adorned the front of their cake.
