The Best Yellow Themed Spring Wedding

We don't know about you, but the color yellow automatically puts a smile on our faces. This is such a versatile color to inspire the design for any wedding. Today we are sharing an indoor spring wedding with pops of bright yellow. We love the way the season was incorporated into the details of this day. Kristof & Becca are such a joyful color so we wanted to create a wedding aesthetic to match! Keep reading to gather inspiration from this yellow-themed spring wedding.

Invitations & Florals

The invitation suite was kept super modern with minimal pops of yellow. The bright tone that the couple chose for the day is so refreshing without being overpowering.

For the bridal bouquet, Becca wanted to incorporate plenty of the yellow color. The addition of different texture florals added dimension to her beautiful bouquet. Then she opted for more romantic pastel tones including blush, lavender, and peach. Of course, no bouquet is complete without some fresh greenery!

The Ceremony

At Smoky Hollow Studio, we allow the industrial venue to shine. A modern wedding arch decorated with organic spring florals was the perfect amount of decor. The contrast of the natural design with the urban style venue was so stunning.

Venue Details

How cool is this guest 'books' idea! Instead of having one traditional guest book, the couple added in a bit more personalization. They chose their favorite books that hold sentimental value in their relationship for guests to sign. That way, when they pick up any of the books in the future they can be reminded of their special day.

For the venue decor, a simple string art sign greeted guests to the day. After the ceremony, we transformed the wedding arch to a creative backdrop. Check out that marquee light sign!

Bride & Groom Photos

Kristof and Becca snuck away for bride and groom photos while guests mingled and enjoyed a cocktail hour. They got to adventure through the local city, capturing photos with different backdrops. Becca got to show off her floor length tulle veil. The bride and groom featured their favorite yellow color with their accessories.

Table Decor

A simple way to transform any space is by adding in an abundance of fresh floral arrangements and greenery. Cascading garlands and hanging floral features brought this design together. We kept the place settings simple with a muted linen, modern black flatware, and a vintage style plate. For a bit more ambiance, we added romantic gold votives.

Woodland Fall Elopement at Autumn Lane Estate in Maine

There really is nothing quite like an intimate elopement surrounded by nature. Today we are adventuring to Maine for the most dreamy woodsy elopement. This rustic boho design will surround you with the feeling of crisp autumn air with colorful fall tones and effortlessly romantic details. Ready to escape to the forest with us? Keep reading to gather inspiration for your elopement vision!

Wedding Arch & Florals

This eco-friendly floral wedding arch seems to emerge from the ground, blending in perfectly with the fall surroundings. The florals were foraged locally in Maine, keeping the theme of the forest consistent. This is such a creative and sustainable way to honor the location of your elopement! The addition of dried textural elements like the seasonal leaves is so unique for this ceremony design.

The bridal bouquet was a continuation of the wedding arch following the colorful fall palette. A mix of warm marigold, burnt orange, deep reds, and blue tones brought pops of color to this elopement. If you are planning an outdoor wedding but want to include more colors, add in plenty of fresh florals to keep things inspired by nature!

Bride & Groom Attire

The bridal look was minimal and ethereal with a flowy floral length gown. For the bride's accessories, she wore dainty and modern jewelry pieces to complete her elopement look. The groom's muted blue suit was so chic, complementing the wedding florals.

The Barn & Lounge Decor

This sweet local barn at Autumn Lane Estate is the perfect Maine elopement location. It is a great spot for photography with a wooden backdrop and modern barn silhouette! Even with intimate elopements, adding a lounge area is a great way to extend your venue space. We added in a matching floral garland, a simple accent bench, and a vintage-inspired rug.

Table Design

How cute is this table design? We selected a two-tone wooden round table and chairs to place our fall decor. The cascading natural floral garland made a stunning centerpiece. We added organic-shaped plates layered between a real seasonal leaf to each place setting. The linen napkins and flatware remained simplistic to allow the place settings to shine.

The Cake

Let's talk about this beautiful cake! The minimal two-layered was decorated with sprigs of pampas grass and a piece of fresh fern with a few more fall florals at the base. We paired the cake with a simple wood cake stand. Of course, we couldn't resist having the bride capture a photo with the sweet treat!
