This season, I admit to having a secret crush on the color orange; from creamy shades of peach and coral to bold punches of tangerine, I just can’t get enough! (Sorry pink, I’m sure I’ll return to you soon)! Wedding planner and designer Crystal Adair-Benning of Distinct Occasions must be in a similar frame of mind, since she dreamed up this lush coral and orange wedding inspiration photo shoot and worked with an incredible team of professionals to bring it to life.
From wedding planner Crystal Adair-Benning of Distinct Occasions: My Inspiration for this shoot… we ALWAYS talk about being authentic and true to yourself in designing your wedding. I design for clients all the time but on this shoot I really wanted to speak to my own heart and all the things that I love. Essentially offering my clients, colleagues and friends my vision of an amazing wedding. I spent weeks doodling and daydreaming about what thrills me, gets me absolutely swooning and this was the outcome. Abundant flowers in corals and oranges, dresses by my favourite designers, Sarah Houston and Claire Pettibone, and details that aren’t fussy but super fabulous. Add some fantastic sparkle and just WOW! I am NOTHING without an amazing team who saw my vision, ran with it and helped give it shape, texture and a whole lot of love! And the couple, by the way, are real, truly in love clients of mine who are saying their own ‘I Do’s’ next year – how cute are they!?!
