Brunch & Bubbly
Working in the wedding industry means you have to stay up to speed with all of the new wedding trends. One we are the most excited about in the year 2020 is brunch style wedding receptions. Several of our clients have chosen to go with a mid-day ceremony paired with an iconic brunch meal for their guests. This trend is opening the door for a lot of creativity in the industry, so we teamed up with an amazing group of vendors to showcase our ideal brunch style wedding and reception.
When thinking of brunch, clean and bright came to mind. The Barn at Reynolda Village in Winston-Salem, NC was the perfect backdrop. The white walls of the barn and the uniqueness of the silo helped bring our vision to life. We chose a color palette of lively sorbet colors – rich and vibrant. We adorned our table with a peach ombre linen from QT’s Pretty Little Things. Staying true to our clean lines and bright vibe, FLORA filled milk glass bud vases from Rusted Root Rentals’ collection with vivid orange and yellow poppies. Acrylic coffee mugs served as escort cards, finalizing the table setting of lavender plates, soft grey linen napkins and silver flatware with a mini doughnut to start grazing on upon taking your seat.
Our gorgeous bride wore a sleek satin, full bodied Hailey Paige gown from TreBella’s located in downtown Greensboro, NC. Her bouquet of bright pinks and yellows brought the warmth of a mid-morning bride. Retro curls with morning glam makeup by Blush & Bobbys pulled our bride’s look all together. Her dashing groom wore a chambray tuxedo from The Black Tux, which we felt brought a sense of cool tones to the pair. Belle Belle Shoes were the designer of the heels worn by our bride, covered in delicate pearls along the T-straps.
Food seemed to be another of our favorite parts of this styling. Bungalow Brews served a mixture of iced and hot coffee drinks from her renovated camper, perfect for events at any location and a fun addition to any event! A breakfast grazing table, topped with all of your breakfast food staples of waffles, pancakes, cinnamon rolls, fruits and yogurts were styled on a simple dark wood table to let the “food do the talking”. No matter brunch or dinner, weddings must have a sweet treat. Artsy Cakesy designed a three-tiered cake with geodes made of sugar. Tasty fruit tartes, parfaits and macaroons were also offered.
Details were the focus of this shoot. From Magnolia Pen and Paper’s beautiful watercolor invitation suite, to the “morning coffee” scroll, to the prosecco bar, hedge wall, and Schiffman’s Jeweler’s collection of cufflinks, his and hers wedding bands and bracelets, A Touch of Southern Events made sure this shoot would provide any brunch bride some inspiration for her own big day, as well as show brides the option of a mid-day ceremony and some of the uniqueness this could have. Alayna Kaye Photography brought each image to life with her skillful eye. The unique qualities and strengths of each vendor shone brightly, and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome.
