We recently had the pleasure of hosting a fun, modern, DIY inspiration shoot designed by the wonderful Amanda Auer of In The Now Weddings. Paired with the talents of Jasmine Star and the drink station, beautiful entrées for the main tabletop and cake & goodies by Jay’s Catering, we knew this shoot would be a stunner!
Amanda began with a neon color palette and a monogrammed ‘plus’ motif that was carried through just about every DIY element of the shoot. Custom clear confetti were packed in clear mini shipping tubes and labeled “Toss” for the bride and groom’s walk back down the aisle. A “Relief Kit” containing tomato juice, pepper vodka and salty snacks was created to give out as favors for the late night wedding guests.
Our favorite out-of-the-box design element for the shoot was the bar set up. Neon blue plexi-glass was used to make floating shelves and the “Sip” signage for the front of the bar created a total visual pop. A signature cocktail named the Smitten Kitten crafted by Jay’s Catering perfectly mirrored the bright color palette and was accompanied by neon yellow banana peppers, rock candy swizzle sticks and hand-cut watermelon ‘plus’ garnishes.
