For those brides who echo an 'amen' every time Julia Roberts' Steel Magnolias character, famously quotes, "Pink is mah signature color", you stand firm on your stance that multiple shades of pink (or 'blush and bashful', as Shelby quips in the hair salon) are a quite the sight to behold. They are indeed, though I'm grateful we've moved on from yards and yards of pink silk bunting à la Steel Magnolias!
In this ultra-feminine styled shoot put together by Megan Laura Photography and All Things Lovely Paper Co. the pink look is given a more modern rendering with neutral shades of nude and ivory incorporated to compliment the rosy hues. From delicate macarons all prettily boxed up for guests, to tequila rose cocktails served in pink depression-era glassware, to the frothiest of wedding gowns, every last detail is cocooned in sumptuous glory. Even the mauve stamps give a nod to one of the most enduring of feminine icons, England's own Queen Elizabeth the II, who recently sported a brilliant pink ensemble after the arrival of the new princess. The inspiration featured here is perfect for the bride who longs to bring every last drop of romance and pretty to the party!
If you've got a thing for pink, but are looking for ideas that go beyond the traditional, why not take a peek at this vibrant Frida Kahlo-inspired session featured on Vale + Vine, or this exotic West Coast inspiration shoot.
