Inspiration to Reality: Sugary Sweet Love Part Deux

Today I'm finishing up sharing pics from the deliciously sweet photo shoot that a super talented team of Minnesota vendors put together for Style Me Pretty's Inspiration to Reality series, based on my own Sugary Sweet Love inspiration board. I just can't get over how great of a job these vendors, especially Red Ribbon Studios (photography), Just Bloomed (flowers), Paperista (invitations), Coco and Fig (sweet treats), and Jenna of Eat Drink Pretty and her husband Erik (bride and groom models) did in bringing my inspiration board to life.

Here are some of the ideas this talented team came up with based on the ideas from my inspiration board:
- Coke in classic bottles as refreshment (“Have A Coke and a Smile)
– Ribbon waving wands for guests to “Wave for a Kiss” from the couple (DIY)
– Late night popcorn snack
– Bedtime milk & cookies treat
– Rock candy cake by Cocoa + Fig
– Candy bar
– Lollipop escort cards with table names like “rock candy” and “laffy taffy” (DIY)
– “Love is Sweet” signature drink (Jackie’s sons Barrel of Monkeys came in handy to add a little whimsy to the cocktails)
– “How Sweet It Is” sign for cake table and would be great as a prop in photos, made from decorative paper, chipboard letters…pasted paper around a string, very easy (DIY)
– LOVE letters. . .cardboard letters found at craft store with decorative paper collaged on to the letters, another great photo prop (DIY)
– The patterned flags are made from quilting fabric found on Etsy. (DIY)
– Macaroons, rock candy, cupcakes, and other sweet treats from Cocoa + Fig
