Lofty, colorful, and graced with gravity-defying beauty, hot air balloons are both art and transportation. I love how vintage photos of hot air balloons make me long for a time I never knew. There is something both romantic and thrilling about a ride in a hot air balloon, which makes it the perfect thematic for a wedding.
I was inspired by the photo below (from greenweddingshoes.com) to recreate this scene for Lil' Miss Sunshine (our affectionate name for The Original Panty Pinata.) I wanted to capture the warmth of the sun and also the confidence of the bride. I think Sunshine looks pretty confident as she prepares for a sunset sail, don't you?
