Hot Pink and Blue Garden Party Wedding Inspiration

Confetti, plus root beer floats and a live swan, makes for quite a celebration.

There are few things we love more than some dreamy garden party wedding inspiration, but this shoot by Lauren Werkheiser Photography and Alyssa Gable of Lovely & Bubbly Events worked in bright pops of color and a cute confetti theme that take it over the top. Add in a dessert bar with mini root beer floats and a confetti cake, and this styled shoot is not only filled with pretty pictures–it’s got plenty of ideas for you and your future spouse to steal.

“‘Your love makes my heart pop’ was the quote that inspired the details behind this shoot,” says event designer Gable. “We strived to show the two sides to a wedding love story: it’s romantic and pretty, but it’s also fun and celebratory.”

The color palette for the shoot also worked to bring together the juxtaposition of ceremony and celebration. “Using soft romantic colors like pale pinks and blues brought that romantic feel tot he shoot, but our confetti and cotton candy details brought the fun celebratory elements,” says Gable. “We just love seeing a couple celebrate their love over cotton candy cocktails and popping some confetti!”
