Mint and Peach Wedding Inspiration

Mint and peach make such a lovely and light Summer wedding palette! The combination of the two colors is so refreshing, and can add beautiful color without being overwhelming. So, we’ve dreamed up a perfect mint and peach wedding inspiration board!

Wedding Bouquet | Mint Bridesmaids | Just Married Car | Signature Cocktail Signage | Mint and Peach Table Setting | Mint and Peach Cake

Not only are mint and peach a lovely combination, but we also love adding a touch of blush pink to the mix, like the ribbons in this beautiful bouquet. And if you can’t find a way to incorporate mint into the actual bouquet, finding a mint backdrop like this vintage chair would be a great way to add that pop of color!

Your bridesmaids will absolutely love wearing a mint bridesmaid dress that they can wear to fun cocktail parties even after your wedding day. We love the full length strapless dresses that these ladies are donning. After your ceremony, you and your new hubby should ride away to the reception in style. This vintage car filled to the brim with flowers would be our ideal getaway!

During cocktail hour, if you are having signature cocktails (which we always think is fun!), have signage letting guests know what they are choosing from, and incorporate your colors into the design of the signage. Once cocktail hour is finished, seat guests at a table that is set with pretty peach and mint pieces, from the votives to the china to the ribbon that holds together your silverware, and even a real peach on top of the china that supports your escort cards. At the end of the night, unwind with a slice of delectable cake, that has been decorated with mint and peach icing of course.

Are you planning a mint and peach wedding? If so, what details are you including? We’d love to hear! And if you are looking for more mint and peach wedding inspiration, make sure to check out our Mint and Peach Wedding Inspiration Pinterest board.

Nashville Wedding Vendor | The Dress Theory

We know that Southern brides love having unique wedding gowns that not all of their friends have seen or worn. If you are looking for a beautiful and unique wedding gown in Nashville, you absolutely must schedule an appointment at The Dress Theory!

I had the opportunity to chat with the lovely ladies behind The Dress Theory, Camille the owner, and Kaylee the Nashville store manager, and let me tell you- they are the ladies you want to have by your side while you are choosing your wedding gown! Camille told me that she originally started The Dress Theory in Seattle after she had her own wedding dress shopping experience. She noticed a need for a more boutique style bridal gown store in Seattle, and happily filled that void! After moving to Nashville, she once again realized that there was a need for a boutique bridal shop for brides who are more daring, fashion forward, and enjoy getting all dolled up for their wedding day.

The amazing thing about The Dress Theory is that Camille personally knows all of the designers of the gowns that she has in her various stores. This assures that the quality of your dresses will be outstanding, and that you know you will be getting a one of a kind experience when shopping for your gown. A little birdie told me that they are even having an amazing Australian gown designer come to Nashville during Memorial Day weekend for a trunk show where you will get to meet the designer and receive 10% off your gown! And that designer may or may not be the incredibly talented Rue de Seine! Nashville brides, you do not want to miss this!

The Dress Theory carries a carefully selected assortment of gowns from sought after designers from both the US and abroad. Such designers include Claire Pettibone, Sarah Seven, Temperley London, Lela Rose, Hayley Paige, and more. The gowns in this Nashville store range in price from $750 to $7000, so there are options for brides with a variety of budgets. They will also be introducing gowns that they fell in love with at the Bridal Market to their boutique within the next few months, so definitely keep an eye out for that!

We highly suggest scheduling an appointment at the boutique to browse their gorgeous gowns and find the perfect one for you! If you are interested in scheduling an appointment or learning more about the designers that they carry in their boutique, make sure to take a look at their website!

Pink and Peach Wedding Inspiration

Pink and peach go together so perfectly, and make a lovely color palette for a wedding! The color combination reminds us of warm summer days and champagne cocktails paired with sherbet. If you love this color palette, make sure to take a look at our Pink and Peach Pinterest board!

Escort Card | Peach Cobbler | Pink and Peach Cocktails

If you are a preppy couple, we think that it would be absolutely wonderful to have your husband wear bright pinks and peaches on your big day! Who says the bride is the only one who is allowed to have fun picking out an outfit for a wedding? But, the ladies do get to have fun of course. Wear a pretty pop of pink from your shoes in these pastel Badgley Mischka pumps.

Invite guests to enjoy a cocktail hour under gorgeous pink and peach draping, and then allow them to find their seats with these equally colorful escort cards. After dinner, treat them to a delicious peach cobbler (we love how this one has been presented!) and pink and peach cocktails to drink to cool down with after a night of dancing.

Nashville Wedding Photographer | Frenzel Studios

We love welcoming new wedding vendors to our Nashville community, and are so happy that Sarah and Derek of Frenzel Studios recently moved here from California! They are incredibly passionate about weddings and the photographs they take, which truly shines through in their images.

 

Frenzel Studios is run by a husband and wife team that focuses on the excitement and emotion of the day and capturing each of these moments in a fresh and organic way! The studio is “bi-costal” in both Nashville, TN and Orange County, CA; specializing in shooting Nashville, Destination, & Luxury weddings. Their work has been featured on Style Me Pretty, Southern Weddings, Green Wedding Shoes, 100 Layer Cake, The Knot, and more!

Sarah and Derek are skilled in both film and digital photography, which is a wonderful balance to have in a photography team. It allows brides to have the option to choose which style of photography they love, and also works well with a variety of budgets.

“We absolutely love what we do!  Being able to be a blessing in our clients’ lives in a creative and meaningful way is one of the greatest opportunities we’ve had; it challenges us, stretches us, grows us, and fulfills us.”

Frenzel Studios offers custom collections rather than set packages, and their collections are based on your wedding location, season, and any specific needs and desires. They photograph weddings primarily in Nashville and California, but also love to travel to domestic and international locations! So, if you adore their work, make sure to contact them today to see if the two of you would be a perfect fit for your wedding!
