Colorful and Whimsical Wedding // The Laurel // Melissa + Justin

Winter is here in Dallas and I couldn’t be happier about it! Helloooo cozy sweaters, hot cocoa and snuggles by the fire! This weather also really helped me transition my pumpkin strewn home to the Christmas wonderland it is now- er, I mean we’ve got our tree up!

For those readers out there who are more of the sun worshipper than the snow bunny, this wedding will warm you up! We are sharing the most colorful, warm and wonderful summer wedding today! The details of these nuptials are unreal and we were so proud to be a part of the loveliness that is Melissa and Justin’s wedding!

When Melissa contacted me about her upcoming summer wedding, she had already hired the ever talented Jen Rios, and I knew then that I wanted to get involved! Jen Rios is an amazing wedding planner and designer whose attention to detail is out of this world! I always know when working with Jen that her weddings will be styled to perfection.

When talking with Melissa and Justin it was clear that they envisioned fun and unconventional design for their special day. We had so much fun incorporating terra cotta pots and the bride’s love of all things balloons! How much do you love the use of balloons here? The ring bearer killed it with that blue balloon and we love the balloons incorporated into the centerpieces.

It’s clear from these photos that Melissa and Justin are a super fun couple! From the bright colors and textures used in Melissa’s bouquet, to the super cool tear drop photo booth to those incredibly unique and whimsical wedding invites. We were honored and proud to be a part of this beautiful wedding and I hope you enjoy these photos, cause this ones a beaut!
