Nothing is more breathtaking than a sunset, so when it came to dreaming up the design for a shoot at Prindle Mountain Overlook, this talented team of local vendors looked to the sky. The radiant color palette centers on shades of orange, with bursts of deep pink, purple, yellow and dark blue. Circles—a nod to the shape of the sun—are also featured throughout the decor and on other items, such as the showstopper cake created by Bite Me! Cookies & Treats. The design’s theme, which the team coined “retro vintage eclectic,” touches every detail of the big day, from the font on the signage to the retro stoneware plates at each place setting and the funky ties the real-life married couple is sporting.

A dark natural wood table serves as the foundation for the colorful reception. Event planner Ash Does Events’ handmade table runner is composed of hundreds of paper circles arranged in an ombre effect to emulate a sunset; and a stunning floral installation by Scarlet Blooms hangs overhead for an unexpected look. Small terra-cotta planters containing succulents double as place cards and favors. For the ultimate “wow” moment, Marley Jo Balloons decked out the venue’s vintage milk truck with a colorful balloon arrangement for the welcome area and gift station (plus, an amazing photo backdrop!).
