Seacoast Weddings - Team Pink

Seacoast Weddings Team Pink was all about fun, sweet fun. Quite literally - candy elements (figurative and literal) were sprinkled throughout, like the pink(!) vintage cotton candy machine.

I don't know where Heather found this vintage candy sign, but it paired perfectly with the pink rock-candy-filled box that housed the letterpress lollipop escort cards mounted onto pink swizzle sticks. And please, those little bride and groom toys-cum-cake-toppers?

The other theme the emerged was the dots - dot cookies, dot runners, dot invitations, dot candy decoration on the wedding cake. I don't recall whether this dot love seat was brought in or happened to be on location, but I think the bride behind the window and dot couch is my favorite from the shoot with the striking pink/white/black color combo. [full disclosure, the wall was actually bright red, but I photoshoped it pink because come on, how perfect is that!]

As a complement to the dots theme of the day, I went with a pink version of our dots invitation suite. Fun and sweet, it perfectly captured the spirit of the event. And how about that table setting? Love the dotted fabric accent on the table runner, and the little collections of pink flowers with singing golden accents in the white milk vases.

I'll also take credit for the cuteness of the flower girl. I dragged poor Sadie along for the ride and I like to think she had some fun being a pretend flower girl for half an hour. It was also my only opportunity to get her into this adorable pink dress I had hanging in the closet (no other weddings or holidays during this size-season). She rocked it! The floral headband was a gift from a fellow exhibitor at the Stationery Show, whose name I unfortunately can't remember.

I admit that I'm really not much of a pinky-pink girl, and pink as a wedding theme has the potential to be saccharine and over the top, but if you're going to do it to the max it has the potential to be truly joyful and fun, which Team Pink absolutely succeeded in doing.
