Just try looking at these bright and happy florals without smiling. It’s basically impossible. Amy Osaba Events had Haley Sheffield come take photos of their arrangements while they were in production for a wedding a couple weekends ago. As Amy tells it, they just couldn’t resist having someone come photograph the outrageous amount of poppies they had.

Amy says, It was refreshing having all of this bright color, coming from so many weddings where it was mainly muted colors.

Love all things retro? What about a striking color combo? Then this one’s for you. Modernly Events + photographer Mary Wyar channeled some major vintage vibes with this mod inspiration shoot. Mary’s take: This shoot was inspired by the vibrant, colorful, and geometric sun motifs created by mid-century modern textile and interior designer Alexander Girard. After a long, hard Midwest winter, we were craving sunshine and warmth! Well, this oughta do it…
