Spring Wedding Style

As warmer weather approaches us and flowers begin to bloom, we can't wait for all of the seriously gorgeous spring weddings to come in the next few months! This year we wanted to take a look back at some of our all time favorite spring weddings and to give all of our future brides out there some really amazing ideas!

Our friends at The Black Tux not only offer some pretty amazing suit and tuxedo rentals for weddings, but they also gave us some major color palette inspiration! Check out the three beautiful weddings below and the tips we have for each idea!

Wedding #1: Shawna + Derek
These lovers had the epitome of pastels for their special day. From gorgeous, flowy bridesmaid dresses to dark navy suits paired with subtle green ties, this wedding combined the best of both modern and traditional wedding ideas. Also, how amazing was that floral bedecked swing?!

Wedding #2:  Keith + Claire
In this wedding, the bride and groom had a totally different take on a traditional spring wedding. Instead of using only light pastels, they combined deep reds and bright pops of fuchia with lush green tones and soft pinks. The groom wore a simple, yet classic black tux while the bride opted for a stunning blush toned gown.

Wedding #3: Joaquin + Alexandra
Our final wedding in this spring style blog focused on subtle neutrals for a clean, elegant vibe. The groomsmen wore  deep navy suits paired with soft grey ties and the bridesmaids wore varying natural shades to put on modern spin on this classic wedding.  The bride chose a lavish white gown and it was truly the cherry on top!

Styled Sunday - A Springtime Pantone Inspired Shoot

Back at the end of 2015, we put together a shoot showcasing the 2016 Pantone Color of The Year. We were so excited when Pantone, for the first time ever, announced not one, but two colors for 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity. When it comes to the more feminine tones, we're big lovers of the more muted and matte variations so I knew INSTANTLY that highlighting Rose Quartz and Serenity in a styled wedding shoot had to happen. This spring, we hope you fall in love with this dazzling display of styled simplicity.

Keith + Clare, a Southwestern Inspired Santa Fe Wedding

In a story seemingly straight from a film, Clare met Keith at Bonnaroo Music Festival In Manchester, Tennessee in the summer of 2012 and they both instantly felt sparks. However, assuming that they would never cross paths again, the pair went their seperate ways.  Later that year, it seemed that fate had other plans as Keith and Clare came across one another once again at Austin City Limits in Texas.  After dating long distance for one year, Clare moved to Nashville, Tennessee to be with Keith. Not too long after, he proposed with his grandmother's ring at a park nearby where they had spent their first date. This incredible couple opted for a destination wedding in Santa Fe and we were SO HONORED to capture their amazing day! Read more about Keith + Clare in this feature by Rocky Mountain Bride!
