Moss-covered trees and tiny bees at this orange and green wedding

Winter got you down? This week we're bringing you some spring weddings for inspiration from March to May! And don't miss the custom-made mossy branches. Total love for those.

Kathleen and Larry got married at Seattle's Urban Light StudiosThey ♥ OBB; we ♥ them, an eclectic and chic venue with a speakeasy vibe. Kate from Kate McElwee Photography and Carna from Very Important Events shared the photos from the colorful and subtly bee-themed event from last April. Even the food matched the orange and green color scheme!

Note the sweet little bees on Larry's vest!

Midnight Blossom made a sculpture out of branches and moss to decorate the ceremony space.
Mozart, Ravel, and Talking Heads were played during the ceremony and one of the readings was 'Ode to the Bee' by Pablo Neruda!

I love this back-lit shot. The wedding planning was done by Very Important Events.

Urban Light Studios definitely is eclectic, down to the stuffed lion.

    • Jen, we don't have any contact with the couple. I'd suggestion contacting the photographer and seeing if she can help you get in touch with them.

    • The vests were actually hand made by a friend of the bride and groom. The friend also made the orange tops that the bridesmaids wore. She was incredibly talented! I'm sure you can talk to a seamstress and come up with something similar if you'd like.

    • (This is from the bride, Kathleen, who is having tech issues:)

      Jen, the vests were custom made using a Napoleonic Bee fabric from
      Plumridge Fabrics and a custom pattern created by a friend of ours who's in fashion design school.
