Lemon & Lime Spring Wedding Shoot, The Lodge at Malibou Lake
If you’ve checked out or blog or event gallery, you’ve probably seen a handful of events that we’ve shared at The Lodge at Malibou Lake. That’s because this venue is truly one of our favorites! The venue, formerly known as the Malibou Lake Mountain Club, has been rebranded and refreshed, and we’re loving it even more! The venue offers both indoor and outdoor elements, and now come adorned with tons of cute decor all in house. While we don’t think you need to bring in much to make your event sparkle at this venue, we wanted to create something unique and different than we’ve done before. And so came our Lemon and Lime Spring Wedding Inspiration! We’re thrilled that it’s featured on Green Wedding Shoes, and hope it fuels some inspiration for wedding couple and vendors!
Jillian Rose photography captured all the details of the day beautifully. Check out all the photos below, followed but a highlight video, and the full vendor list at the bottom.
I think there’s a “right” venue for every occasion and couple. So many couples are opting for an all outdoor venue. While other couples are set on an indoor reception. There’s many perks to choosing an indoor space: no need for a “back up plan” in case of rain, no need to worry about wind-blown hair, or humidity giving you a glow (sans highlighter!), and no concerns over wind and table top decor. If you’re a couple looking for a cool indoor option, The Lodge at Malibou Lake should definitely be on your list to check out. The venue offers farm table and vineyard chairs as part of your wedding package, but you can opt to bring in your own rentals to personalize it a bit.
The rentals were provided by Party Pleasers Rental Co for this event, and we love how things turned out. The gold deco chairs, grey marble chargers, metallic amber glass, and geometric napkins were some of our favorite details.
The floral designer, Oak Barrel & Bloom Co. was contributed her talents to the shoot by creating organically textured spring arrangements, with tons of yellows and natural tones. These florals are giving us SO MUCH life!! We love how they pair with the rich emerald velvet runner and and butter napkins, both from La Tavola Fine Linens.
Invitations, Menus and Signage were designed by the super sweet Heather, of Brown & Co, and we can’t get enough of these designs! She really is a true creative talent! As a wedding planner and designer, so much of the final product is of course, due to the talents of other vendors, and relying on their particular specialty. My favorite vendors to work with are those that make collaboration fun and easy. Working with Heather is so great! For this shoot, I talked with her about my overall vision and concept, and always welcomed her feedback and creative eye. What she produced was beyond my vision! How stunning are these hand-painted, water color invitations and menus? Also, check out the custom made, wood sign for the “Sprung On Love” dessert table below, with the desserts. We wish we could use this sign again and again!
How awesome are the bride and groom suites?! We’d LOVE to get ready in one of these stylish spots.
In addiiton to the inside of the venue being stunning, the outside grounds definitely match! So picturesque…major heart eyes, right?!
Sweet Art Bake Shop knocked it out of the park with this over the top dessert bar. Mini cup-cakes, cake pops, lemon bars, marble bark, and a custom cake. Can we talk about the cake for a minute? This four tier beauty was completely personalized and adorned with fondant florals. Who wouldn’t want a dessert bar like this for their wedding?
We wanted to go with a cool and effortless style for our couple. This streamlined Badly Mischka gown was perfect for the vibe, and we love how it paired so well with the brides delicate, gold body harness necklace. Friar Tux provided the sharp suit for the groom, which featured the black velvet coat. Part classic elegance/part rock star.
There are several stunning backdrops for the ceremony, but we chose the less-common backdrop, between the two large trees. How lush and gorgeous is this? The natural driftwood pillars from Party Pleasers were a great compliment to the space, and Oak Barrel & Bloom Co. dressed the pillars with just enough florals.
The Bride & Groom Celebrated with a craft cocktail in the Uber-cool “library bar”.
And they wrapped up the day with some Artisan Ice Cream, from Carmela Ice Cream. Carmela features all organic, hand made ice cream, and it’s seriously delicious. We chose organic flavors like cucumber sorbet and lemon basil sorbet, to go along with the fresh, spring theme of the shoot.
We love how everything came together, and hope you do too! And if you didn’t get enough of this shoot from the photos above, check out this awesome highlight video filmed by DJ Sota Entertainment.
