Looking to incorporate a pop of color in your wedding, while still showing off your sophisticated style? This styled shoot in Northern California combines vibrant and playful details for a bright yet refined wedding inspiration. Styled at the warm and urban Willow Ballroom in the Sacramento Delta, the unique venue lended a muted brick backdrop to complement the dusty blue details. Not one, but two, gorgeous Selkie dresses were featured from their new wedding collection!

Selkie dresses for night & day

Lovely model Hannah wore two different styles of Selkie dresses that perfectly show how you can go from a more formal and ethereal ceremony look to a light and airy reception style. Both gowns radiate their own retro and elegant bridal fashion. We love how hair and makeup artist Michele DeeAnn styled her hair down for the lengthy silk dress and in a fun, high ponytail for the cocktail style gown. The pearls in the bride's hair were such a fun and unique touch!

This long silk gown, aptly named "Queen of the Angels", is part of Selkie's new wedding collection! You can shop all their bridal designs here.

Dolce and Gabbana bridal shoes

We are obsessed with these playful bridal platforms from Dolce & Gabbana. They incorporate the "something blue" tradition while also matching the wedding design! Designer Dragonfly Events & Co. had this to say:

"We cannot forget the beautiful Dolce & Gabbana shoes that were a loud teal color with detailed intricate flowers. We incorporated our love for a modern and bold look while also keeping it bridal and sophisticated!"

Selkie French Puff Dress

The second dress is the iconic Bebe Bloom Dress from Selkie in Ivory. This dress is perfect for a sweet elopement or a wardrobe change to dance the night away!

From event designer Dragonfly Events & Co. :

"This inspirational shoot was created to help couples planning their wedding think outside of the box and not be afraid of incorporating bright and bold colors into their color scheme. We used different patterns and textures with the linen selection and bright gold chairs for the dinner tablescape."
