Summer Wedding Cocktail Inspiration - Featured on Wedding Sparrow

Absolute favorite thing about this shoot? (besides the fact that it was with some of my dearest friends in the industry who are also bad ass lady bosses)  It was all born of a "mistake".  

When a floral shipment arrived a week early, Mandy Grace Designs had an abundance of beauty with a limited lifespan on her hands that she didn't want to waste.  In less than 24 hours, we were in her garage making magic.

The focus?  BOOZE of course!  Beautiful floral and cocktail pairings for your summer wedding.  I've included my favorite below, but you can check out more summer wedding cocktail inspiration on Wedding Sparrow featuring this and other pairings we did that day.
