Sweet & Colorful Candy Crush Saga Bridal Shower Inspiration Shoot


candy crush saga wedding

After seeing so many styled shoots that are “pretty yet have the same overall look of ‘rustic chic’”, event coordinator Kelley Kennedy of Teacup Floral thought it was time to create something bright, lavish, fun and unexpected for the bride who wants to stand out. Kelley also loves pop art so she collaborated with talented local vendors and came up with a bridal shower inspiration shoot based on a current obsession of many: Candy Crush Saga!

I told Kelley that I have never played this game (despite constantly receiving requests from friends — and even my Mom! — on Facebook :) ) but just the idea of it excited me and so I knew I had to share it, and soon. I love how awesome it turned out and I know you will too. Please enjoy the lovely photos by Andrew Kennedy Photography.

I’ve included some design notes from Kelley to better explain the thought and planning that went behind this styled wedding shoot –

* It’s a sweet depiction of the POP culture phenomenon: Candy Crush Saga
* It’s a bridal shower you’d actually want to go to.
* No color has been spared.

* A cavity-inducing spread dentists would love us for —  candy mixed with flowers in a flirtatious and whimsical way- not to ever be mistaken for a children’s birthday party.

Some more information from the team:

There’s a good chance everybody knows about the game Candy Crush Saga. If they haven’t been playing it for countless hours, they likely know someone who has. We decided to take the vibrant familiarity of this phenomenon and mix it with the traditional elegance of a modern surprise bridal shower. Because our photo shoot was inspired by a game (that 50 million people are playing each day) we knew it would appeal to a large audience! We didn’t want to create a completely literal translation of the game, but instead take different parts of the game and fluff them out. Some of the best styled photo shoots start by taking an idea many people have in common and playing off that. We knew it was time to create something bright, lavish, fun and unexpected for the bride who wants to stand out from the rest. We want potential clients to think of their possibilities as limitless and together see what we come up with! We also hope to inspire brides, grooms and their guests to have fun with all of the aspects of their wedding- in this case even the events leading up to that special day.

  4. The vibrant colors, bold gum drops and candy swirls really captures the excitement and adventure of being a child again. The sweet looking cocktails, however, is a reminder that we’re talking adult fun here! Round balloons hovering over the lush landscape reveals a wonderland I’d love to party it up in. Awesome shoot!
