Yellow Wedding in North Carolina by Julie Roberts Photography

I have never seen a yellow wedding look as fantastic as this mountain wedding in Asheville, North Carolina at the The Grove Park Inn Resort and Spa! From yellow, flirty shoes and a bright parasol, to happy floral arrangements at the reception, all the pops of yellow are elegant while still cheery and fun. Thank you to Julie Roberts Photographic for sharing a wedding so full of life and joy with us today!

Designer, Shanna of Ruffles and Rouge Events, gives us a little background into the design of the day….

“When I very first met with Jessica, she told me that she really wanted a vintage inspired wedding with rustic touches. She explained that she was inspired by the setting of the Grove Park Inn. And, she also wanted her two sons to wear vintage bow ties with news boys caps! So off we went… We chose mustard yellow and chocolate brown as the main colors, with touches of blue.

Jessica wanted mismatched china, a one of a kind cake topper, and some vintage and rustic inspired details to bring together the day. So I found for her some beautiful glassware from the Hwy 127 “World’s longest yard sale” and mixed it with local thrift store finds to make up her collection. I made her cake topper out of a birds nest with thistle and moss, topped with a yellow and a blue bird to represent Jessica and Andy.

Her “guestbook” was a collaboration of her want for a thumb print tree~so I took it a step further and crafted an actual tree for guests to print and sign a leaf, then attach to the tree with miniature clothes pins. Guests also had tissues for “happy tears” during the ceremony and received homemade smores as their favor at the end of the evening.

All of her beautiful details were tied together perfectly with the help of paper designer Erin Haines from Be True Designs, who made custom tags and signs. And the florist, Studio Flora Diva, used old window panes, mason jars and gorgeous yellow flowers as accents and centerpieces at the dining tables. With the collaborative efforts of all involved, I think we had one happy bride!”
