Fine Art Wedding Inspiration + A Juicy Citrus Color Story

Hello dear ones! Who has a love for fine art photography for weddings but an equal love of color? While it's true that fine art generally skews neutral or very pastel, it doesn't have to. Fine art wedding photography can indeed be colorful and we're going to show you using juicy tones of grapefruit, tangerine, and lemon. Featured on Style Me Pretty

The simplest way to incorporate bright color into your day? Florals. Large blooms in bold colors easily carry the color story throughout your event. Not to mention your florist will adore you for choosing something different. And while beautiful silk ribbons are all the rage for bouquets (and let's be honest, hopefully here to stay), I chose to use a sash of chiffon on the bouquet instead for a twist.

Bright, citrus tones look gorgeous punctuated with white linens. Instead of the solid, banquet style linen I opted for vintage lace for it's textural beauty and feminine detail.

A beautiful, bold paper suite sets the tone for this wedding. This is the calling card for event expectations. There's no doubt you're going to see lovely color at a wedding when you receive this in the post.

When you have bright florals on the table, I prefer to keep place settings fairly neutral to let those blooms take center stage. Here I incorporated a blush goblet, a linen napkin in a juicy tone pulled from the bouquet, and a menu card that ties the paper suite to the table setting.

And lastly, the most fun way to incorporate color into fine art wedding photography: be the color. As in wear it. I am such a fan of wedding gowns in color and their detail is captured so beautifully in photos. I mean...
