(Above) What would a celebration be without man’s (and woman's) best friend? Denali is dressed in his very best for the big day, with a collar of peach blooms from Studio C Floral

(Below) Designed by Pink Peony Weddings & Events, this wedding theme plays favorites with warm summer hues. Blooms in shades of orange, peach, magenta and yellow (the focus is on the flora, hardly a sprig of greenery to be found) are artfully arranged in a geometric bouquet from Studio C Floral, mirroring the shapes of the ceremony backdrop by Botany Creative Works. Those brilliant blooms also appear in the bride’s floral wristlet, which pops against her gown by Jenny Yoo from BHLDN

(Above) Geometric details carry over into this stunning stacked cake by INK Sweets, featuring delicious grapefruit, orange and lemon shades of ultra-smooth fondant, as well as slices of the real thing.

(Below) Give your guests a sneak peek at the event to come. In this stylish suite by Printerette Press, watercolor illustrations adorn coordinating pieces, from the invite to the signature cocktail menu. 

(Above) Infuse your table décor with a dreamy dose of color. A rainbow of lush and lavish blooms, from ranunculus and garden roses to anthurium and hanging amaranthus, runs the length of the table. Cylinder vases of varying heights lend a dash of warm, bright shades to the centerpiece.

(Below) End a perfect summer evening on a sweet note. Here, The Parlor ice cream truck satisfies dessert cravings with fruit-flavored ice cream (try black cherry, strawberry or orange sherbet) served up in grapefruit bowls.

(Above) How divine to dine at a table as gorgeous as this. The theme of the day continues with watercolor triangle place cards, tucked on top of tiny clementines. The setting is complete with bright white plates, glam gold flatware and prettiest pink glassware, all from Anthropologie, set against a dazzling array of flora in sunset shades.

(Below) At new venue Pinewood Weddings & Events, outdoor ceremonies are held amid the property’s namesake towering trees. Here, Botany Creative Works draws inspiration from the surroundings for a ceremony backdrop, creating a geometric neon forest with floral topper.
