Spring 2021 Bright Wedding Inspiration Editorial (Part 2 of 2)

This collaboration was just too good to stop at just one post! The amazing vendor team (links below!) really showed their talents bringing together the Spring 2021 Wedding Editorial that featured bright whites and pinks, oranges, terracotta, and luscious greens. All inspired by Pantone 2021 palette called "Summer Bouquet".

So let's look at that hella gorgeous cake!

Delicious UnVailed by Natalie Vaile created a rustic, yet elegant multiple layer cake to reflect the venue and spring vibe perfectly.


Each cake contained three lays of rich, yet delicate chocolate with a light almond buttercream frosting.


Natalie chose the almond buttercream because it is the perfect blank canvas for a wedding cake if you are going to adorn it with flowers or greenery, as Sunborn Gardens provided the florals here.


Delicious UnVailed styled the florals and topped the cake with her own special creation, a shattered sugar glass, of course in pink! You can see it at the very top of the cake, with the light shining through it. The edible sugar glass made for such a unique and unexpected element. Oh, and did I mention it was DELICIOUS?!!!



Speaking of gorgeous, let's talk about how perfectly our model (and bride-to-be!) Kaci looked in the dress. That. Dress! Haute Luxe Bridal & Beauty House, has a BRAND-SPANKING-NEW location in downtown Beloit, WI and it is beyond- I mean BEYOND- so much more than your typical bridal gown store.

Our groom, Derrik (Kaci's real-life fiancé!!) wore a modern black suit, slim tie and no-doubt had some great practice getting ready for the real big day! (Which I'll be there for too!)

One of my favorite photos to get of the groom, is him taking a few moments to relax the morning of the wedding.


This is a great time to hang with your crew and try to shake some of those pre-ceremony jitters.


While the ladies get primped and pampered for hours, I usually grab the groom and have him get on his coat, tie and jacket for me. It takes all of 10 minutes, but there is just something about a groom getting ready for his bride that brings all the romance.

I love to find a nice window for great light --so grooms, we might move to a different room than where you are hanging or even to the hallway to get dressed!



Luckily for us, the venue (see the first post for more photographs!), The Barn on Prairie is Janesville, WI's brand-new wedding and event venue. It is a two-story venue with this gorgeous, light and bright room you see here on the first floor. This room would be perfect for an elopement or small wedding, cocktail hour, or even a company party.

Upstairs at The Barn on Prairie, the barn is a gorgeous, and completely and expertly renovated space that easily can host your ceremony and/or reception with its expansive size (165 seated upstairs, or 185 first floor), high ceilings, and massive Restoration Hardware chandeliers.


SO, thank you for coming along on the journey as we created a bright, light, spring wedding for you! We hope you truly enjoyed it!


And on a personal level, thank you to each and every vendor on the team (give them some love below!) Your talent is a true gift.


Lastly, thank you to our models, real-life ENGAGED couple (September of 2021!), Kaci & Derrik who made this all possible. Not only are they nice to look at (haha), but they are sincerely nice and funny people, who were a pleasure to spend the day with, and I'm lucky to call my friends.
