When searching for a timeless wedding theme or color palette that you won’t regret years down the road, you don’t have to opt for bland. This emerald wedding inspiration planned by Jordan Flowers and Events proves that dreams really do come true! Incorporating bold emerald green alongside classic metallic and crystal elements from Premiere Events Austin, this wedding scene is just as elegant and stately as it is eclectic and unique, and we just love how alive florals and greenery on every tablescape make it all feel. Our favorite part of this big day is the model bride’s wedding attire. She is stunning in a sleek and simple V-neck gown from Unbridaled. Read on to hear what the planner had to say about this timeless, emerald wedding scene. Cheers!

From the planner and florist: “Emerald green, white and gold were the colors selected for this styled shoot. So often clients request a timeless floral and table setting. Something that they can look back on 20 years from now and still be gorgeous. To us, this is a very classic, unique and elegant wedding, but best of all, it can be used any season year-round. The white flowers mixed with the gold silverware, cups, orchids and pillars gave the entire setting such an upscale feel and complements the green and marble place setting. So much color and texture in a picture it’s makes you just want to touch your screen. The lush green fabric gives off such a velvety rich satin look. The acrylic name setting paired with the marble plates provides this setting with a modern twist and matches the marble vase centerpiece. The gold orchids are the cherry on the cake giving each setting a more finished look by highlighting the gold-rimmed glasses, dining ware, chargers and table centerpieces.”

Urban Destination Engagement from David McCandless

Shanon and Alex met senior year of college during a spring break trip to Cancun, but didn’t rekindle their old flames until later on during post-grad.  After about four years and countless Bloody Mary’s later, Alex proposed to Shannon on the same Andy Warhol Bridge that he first asked her to be his girlfriend! The couple had some serious sparks flying during their urban Pittsburgh engagement session with David McCandless Photography. They explored the Mexican War Streets in Pittsburgh’s North Side neighborhood before making a stop alongside the river overlooking the city. The couple got to show off their immense love for the place where it all began, while simultaneously capturing the whimsy of  water. We are adoring the shots spotlighting her delicate solitaire engagement ring, and of course, the genuine look of love in each others’ eyes.

This lovely couple is getting married on July, 11 2020, along the river in Aspinwall, Pennsylvania. Shannon and Alex are planning a bohemian affair with bursts of pink and purple florals against an array of succulents. Sounds pretty dreamy to us! Cheers to the soon-to-be Olon’s!

From the bride: “I was heading back to West Virginia from another weekend in Pittsburgh when I got a text from Alex asking me to watch the Steeler game with him. I quickly made a U-turn and stopped at my friends to change my outfit. In my excitement, I locked my keys and my phone in the trunk of my car. He thought I’d blown him off by the time I finally made it to his place. We went to a bar to watch the game while I waited for Honda roadside assistance to arrive to unlock my car. At the end of our date, he walked me to my car, grabbed me by the waist and dipped me back for a kiss. I smiled the entire way home!”
