Laura of Ashton Events Planning and Design + the team below snagged the coolest venue for their shoot: Snap! Space in downtown Orlando. It’s an indoor-outdoor art gallery with contemporary industrial features that the team honed in on with a simple color palette of black, white, and cranberry with metallic and organic greenery. With ultra chic accents and geometric accessories, this shoot is all about the littlest details.

Thanks to LH Photography for sharing the images below!

Laura says, A few favorite details included the whimsical yet modern, lucite swing seats, the stunning concrete detailing in the stationery, as well as the unusual presentation of an “interactive” centerpiece where the guests can serve themselves.

It was all about contrast: Between light and dark, modern and raw. And can we just take a moment to admire this cake…

How epic was this morning’s Vegas bachelorette party? If you haven’t seen it, you need to put it on your Monday to-do… You will not regret it! Kelsey + Matthew’s colorful Texas wedding is another fun one. They went for an Austin-meets-Palm-Springs vibe with a food truck, desert colors, and succulent décor to represent how relaxed but chic both cities are. These snaps by Two Pair Photography capture how laid back and chic our couple is too!

Gah, those dresses… and bouquets… and ribbons. Kelsey says she sent about 100 inspiration photos to Wendee Sawran Petals, and she nailed it for sure.

(Planner Joyful Details tells us ribbons are a low cost way to totally up your décor game! Such a good idea.)

Kelsey tells it, The reception was very upbeat and fun. We had a guacamole bar as an appetizer and service cocktails in mason jars. The “LOVE” marquee sign ended up being the center of the reception and everyone wanted to take a picture with it.  Our band, The Nightowls, really kept the party going and they went great with our theme and venue.

Charming cupcakes are the way to go for a relaxed vibe, mhm! Kelsey also surprised Matt with iPhone cookies, since he’s so techy and at the time was the Mobile Marketing Manager at Victoria’s Secret.

Kelsey’s advice: If you love details like me, start planning early. It’s more fun to have time to relax the month before the wedding and not worry about last minute planning. Also, let the groom plan the honeymoon. That is one less thing the bride needs to worry about planning. Matt chose our location 100% on his own—Costa Rica.

That honeymoon tip is a good one! Cheers!
