Punches of color make a wedding feel lively and youthful. That’s why we are suckers for adding yellow to any wedding theme. It effortlessly matches up with everything and anything. Looks especially snappy with a hot air ballon theme … don’t you think? All this fun and playfulness was captured by one of our very own Hand-Picked Wedding photographers Lavender & Twine.
Be sure to read on as these central coast wedding vendors go into more detail on this playful inspirational shoot. So many many more pretty pictures to swoon over in the full gallery. You have to see a close up of this yellow cake and you will fall in love with these hot air balloon table numbers designed by Lilly & Louise.

Tenley Erin Young, named “America’s Best Floral Designer” after winning the TV Show “The Arrangement”, designed the gorgeous florals to enhance the lemon yellow used in the attire. She worked with billy balls, dusty millers, parrot tulips, hydrangea, succulents and greens. We especially love the bouquet–so unique!
Lilly & Louise took our ideas and ran with them, translating our Hot Air Balloon Wedding Ideas into the most precious invitation suite that tied everything together perfectly.
This lemon-themed shoot was inspired by a beautiful local venue, Limoneira Ranch in Santa Paula CA. It is a hidden gem, known for both their delicious lemons (a real working ranch!) and hot air balloons. It’s tucked away in the hills and when you drive up to the Ranch you drive through towering eucalyptus trees, and miles of lemon groves. The site is amazing with several wedding locations on the property, which allows each of it’s couples to customize their wedding to fit their own personal vision.
We wanted a fun and playful look, and to inspire bride’s who love a pop of color we incorporated yellow into different parts of the bride and groom’s attire. Our bride is wearing a sweet short gown by La Soie Bridal – Santa Barbara. We wanted to add a little ‘zest’ with her accessories; the sweater is from Forever 21 and the adorable satin shoes are by Nina Shoes. The bride’s birdcage veil was handmade by VVeronique Coleccion.
For the groom we stumbled upon Me and Matilda who handmade the Gingham print suspenders and tie to match the rest of our vision. We completed his look with khakis and a white shirt from Gap and penny loafers from Bass.
