Many weddings and events have been forced to cancel or postpone this season, and we all have the same question: When will we be able to host celebrations again with our loved ones? With that in mind, Southern California wedding florist, Araceli of Café au Love aimed to create a wedding table filled with good vibes and a whole lot of happiness. A table that we could eventually sit at and smile.
You can see even more photos in the full gallery here. Read on to see all the sunny wedding inspiration that will make you smile.
Araceli of Café au Love selected the overall design and color palette while listening to "Smile" by Vitamin C," and began brainstorming. She wanted to create a wedding table that brought happiness and joy and came up with her happy table's ideal color palette. It will have pops of yellow, splashes of greens and touches of white.
The color yellow represents happiness, optimism and warmth. The color white represents purity, safety, and successful beginnings. Lastly, green represents friendship, cleanliness, and health -the ideal color combination for a healthy, happy, and safe wedding table.
Once a vision board was created, Araceli took a chance in asking a few brave and sweet vendors to partake in this inspirational shoot. Flora, the ever stunning venue in Downtown San Diego kindly opened up their doors and Allison Davis Photography captured the magic.
All of the details were pre-designed and planned with Isabella Modern Calligraphy creating all of the stunning paper goods.
Our favors consisted of homemade hand sanitizer bottles, macrame rainbows and other details by the Crafty Plant Lady.
Single Use Table Setting
Instead of chargers, plates and a lovely napkin fold Araceli predicts that most caterers and venues will encourage single use wear for a while. In place, Kraft Paper place mats and rolled up silverware were set. T
he eclectic collection of yellow goblets were provided by Not My Dish, with the vintage shot glasses being provided by the Crafty Plant Lady. Florals and tabletop design were orchestrated by Café au Love.
Sunshine Yellow Wedding Cake
Sweet lemon cookies and our gorgeous artistic cake were baked with love by the talented Heritage & Co. Desserts.
Keep Pushing Forward
An important detail and mindset to carry during these trying times for most couples, is to keep pushing forward and never forget the true meaning behind wedding celebrations.
Let's bring joy and life back into celebrations, even if it now has to be expressed and executed in a creative way...we are asking for Good Vibes Only. Looking forward to making magic again!
