Happy St. Patrick’s Day, cakies! You know we’re always looking for an excuse to throw a bash around here, but honestly, St. Patty’s 2015 was kiiiinda overlooked until this batch of beautiful images by Stephanie Yonce Photography popped up in our inbox. Part wedding inspo, part St. Patrick’s soiree, she + Amore Events by Cody combined forces for an evening of green + gold goodness.
PS: Let us know if you try the festive cocktail recipes below… We’ve got three!Amore Events by Cody ain’t just about event design… They’ve got a major knack for florals too.
Stephanie says, Originally inspired by a small brass four-leaf clover trivet found in my grandmother-in-law’s sitting room, I floated the idea of a St. Patrick’s Day inspiration shoot to the ever talented Cody, of Amore Events by Cody. Cody, who has an innate talent for bringing her concepts to life in the most breathtaking way, brought this St. Patty’s Day inspiration to another level. From the delicate touches on the lush green tablescape, to the playful and punchy lomo camera, each element brought its own level of style and elegance.

Stephanie says, It was incredibly inspiring to work with such an amazing team of vendors to pull together such a lovely a concept, especially one centered around a color that often doesn’t receive nearly enough love—all those lovely shades of green.
Totally agreed. Thanks to the vendors below for such a spirited shoot.
