The perfect shade of sunset orange is everywhere you look in these photos from Erica and Mel's backyard wedding last summer. It's in the desserts, in the bridesmaids' dresses — even in a vintage Ford truck. Seriously, the colors are so luscious, they make me think of those old, hand-tinted photos. Erica and Mel's style vibe definitely contributes to that old-timey feel. Erica said her custom corset and gown fulfilled her dream of a 1950s-style dress. The same designer tailored Mel's dapper outfit as well.

While you're admiring the couple's style, be on the lookout for details like specialty cocktails, huge puppy-dog eyes, and a dessert table that radiates every shade of pastel orange you can imagine.
