Happy Summer Time Wedding Inspiration

As you may be aware, this year is the 50th anniversary of the famous 1967 Summer of Love in San Francisco, California. To honor this moment in our history, San Francisco had year-long festivities and events including colorfully painted buses and concerts in the Golden Gate Park. What better way to celebrate that famous summer with a wedding style shoot to inspire soon to be brides on how to bring in a day that will be remembered for the rest of their lives. This happy summer time wedding inspiration is the perfect tribute to celebrating the theme and the joining of two souls, bringing friends and family together and absorbing the loveliness of nature around you. Amber Amelingmeier of De Joy Photography and Kim Baker of Kim Baker Beauty sought to recreate the intimacy and innocence of that historic summer in San Francisco with an outdoor tropical themed wedding complete with the classic VW Bus made famous on Haight-Ashbury. The only rule for this event: you must wear flowers in your hair. Every detail lead to some pin-worthy results on your Pinterest boards.
