As Seen in Bride & Bloom

So excited to share that Kelly Ashworth Design is featured in the new issue of Bride & Bloom magazine! When the ultra talented, super funny and all around nice/celebrity/wedding planner/online media expert Liene Stevens of Blue Orchid Weddings asked me to contribute to a feature she was putting together, I was ecstatic.
We had a very short amount of time to put this together, but I was really excited with the low key vibe of this particular project. Liene was told to work around shades of yellow, so she opted for a casual picnic-y look with special focus on attainable chic that would be easy for the everyday gal to recreate.
Pick up a copy of Bride & Bloom at your local newsstand, or subscribe right here. Here are some of the highlights from the photo shoot:
This lemon tart from Sweet Pea Bakery is making my mouth water. I need the recipe. Or directions to the bakery. Stat.
Favors were incorporated into the table decor in the form of pretty bottles of lemonade with tags denoting a donation for Pink Initiative. This is a great idea for brides who want to show support for their favorite cause and still keep their guests well hydrated with a delicious beverage!
I created accordion style invitations in shades of spring green and yellow, and tied them together with some cute gingham ribbon I found at my local craft store. (You may notice the bride and groom's names: James & Pamela. Will my obsession with "The Office" never end?)
Gorgeous table decor and florals in shades of yellow, green and white courtesy of BBJ Linen, Tri-Rentals, and White Poppy Floral. And the one and only Darby Elizabeth of Darby Elizabeth Photography captured these beautiful images. Thanks to Liene for this amazing opportunity!
