Since the WeddingWire team is pretty much glued to Olympics coverage this week, we are totally dreaming in gold and silver this week. Yesterday, we featured some gorgeous gold and silver wedding cakes and today we’re all about metallic wedding dresses. Luckily, this was quite a trend at bridal market last season, so there were lots of dresses to choose from!

Olympics Week: Gold and Silver Wedding Cakes

Posted by Kim on Jul 31, 2012

Like many of you, we’re obsessed with all things Olympics this week! When we’re not watching Ryan Lochte swim or Gabby Douglas flip, we’re thinking about all things gold and silver for weddings. Today, we’re featuring some truly medal-worthy wedding cakes featuring gold and silver details.

Love the color palette of this style shoot. The shoot was planned by Liv by Design with Flora Fetish, photographed by Katherine O’Brien Photography and occurred right around the opening of this new venue,  Ranch Austin, in none other than, Austin, Texas!  The design team wanted a farm theme with a monochromatic design, so they used a touch of modern mixed with a farmers market pick. We adore how they pulled together such a modern look in such a rustic setting. Hope you enjoy!
