A romantic pink Dahlia inspired wedding by Krista Mason

Gorgeous pink and white Dahlia wedding bouquet

It doesn’t really get more romantic than pink Dahlias. This year’s new it-flower isn’t just full and beautiful, it’s got the most intricately shaped leaves and comes in a variety of colors, which makes it the perfect inspiration to build a wedding around. That’s exactly what today’s couple, Raina and Matt, did! Married at the stunning Talega Golf Club in Orange County, CA, this romantic Dahlia inspired wedding had the prettiest pops of pink and unexpected rustic details  like driftwood centerpieces.

Top it all off with Raina’s gorgeous, backless lace wedding gown and well… it’s a recipe for true love! Shot beautifully by Krista Mason, this wedding day is a true stunner from the elegant ceremony to the perfect sparkler send-off. More pretty pink Dahlia inspired wedding goodness after the jump…
