St. Patrick's Day Wedding Inspiration

March 17, 2016
St. Patrick’s Day — with it's vivid greens and it's shimmery golds has always been a favorite color combination for me. Adore these colors too and want to find a way to incorporate these colors into your event design in a way that's sophisticated and elegant?

Well, get excited because this dream team of wedding pros featuring florals and design by Juli Vaughn Designs and coordination by Color Pop Events — is just bursting at the seams with inspiration! And lucky for us, Sarah Esther Photography was there to capture all of the pretty!

From the event designer, "The luck of the Irish sometimes extends to vintage green beaded dresses — at least that’s what makeup artist Andrea Carter experienced the day she found the dress that inspired this shoot."

"Tucked in between a mound of 80's prom dresses at an antique store, she spotted it's sparkly sleeve and fell in love immediately."

s soon as Andrea showed it to me..."

"...I knew we had to give it a second day in the spotlight as a star in a St. Patrick’s Day inspired wedding shoot."

"And what Irish-inspired wedding is complete without a pub, a gorgeous redhead, and plenty of Guinness (in ice cream float form)?"
