This styled LGBTQ+ wedding brought a modern twist to the historic Ebell of Santa Ana in Orange County, California, with pops of bright orange, yellow and pink for marvelous ideas for spring wedding colors. The overall design allowed the florals to take center stage with vibrant colors and underutilized blooms such as gerbera daisies and gladiolus to show how you can have an out-of-the-box design that’s just as trendy as the more popular styles marriers tend to favor! A grazing mezze station; pink cake pops; a three-tier wedding cake with sugar flowers in bright orange, yellow and pink; and passionfruit margaritas brought the entire showcase together for the perfect punchy spring soiree!

The gay grooms Patrick and Shaun, who modeled for this spring wedding inspiration shoot, are a real couple living in Orange County. For the styled LGBTQ+ wedding, the couple wore suits from Friar Tux. For the vow exchange, Patrick and Shaun donned one set of wedding attire: a cobalt blue suit with a white shirt and a white tie punctuated with small flowers and a forest green suit with a white shirt and a buttery yellow tie. Then they changed into new wedding outfits: a forest green suit paired with a marigold velvet bow tie, and a creamy light tan suit and a floral tie.
