Succulents & Bark

There’s one thing that makes us go crazy for a wedding… mixing trends!  That’s right, the FP staff goes bonkers for couples who laugh at the face of motherly guilt and take risks with their wedding design.  Here’s a perfect example of a subtle way to accomplish this style rebellion.  Bailey & Hal’s nuptials were largely of the classic rustic persuasion, but if you look closely you’ll see hints of the uber trendy “succulents” crazy.  This fete fabulously demonstrates that couples can have a solid theme with a splash of mixed stylistic details.   Photography:  Tracy Moore Photography Cake:  Cake …

Succulents & Cream

Modern wedding themes, with their sharp lines and muted colors, can often feel simplistic and cold.  But add a bright color into the mix and a couple can transform their contemporary nuptials from a bleak futuristic to a warm contemporary fete.  This is exactly what Kristin & Rob did for their Monterey, California nuptials.  Filled with succulents and accents of grey, cream, & yellow, this adorable couple’s wedding day was anything but cold.  Further, special details gave the day a loving air – Kristin honored her father’s memory with a charm on her bouquet; guests were served a delicious lemon …

Country Harvest

With Autumn quickly approaching, it’s time to start storing away the bright Summer palettes and bring out the warm neutrals of Fall weddings. However, some believe that you can only have a season-themed fete only if you’re in the right climate.  Well Petticoat Nation, you know we’re not ones for rules here at The FP!  So check out Chris & Mandy’s nuptials.  Set in Tampa, Florida their wedding is the perfect example of how to do a seasonal theme in a warm climate.  Instead of going full throttle on burnt oranges and dark browns, the couple kept the colors more …
