For the past few weeks, I’ve been pondering how to incorporate royal blue into a theme. E and I mulled it over today and inspiration struck. Royal blues with iridescent grays and blues, with just a touch of red.

Dreamy Brooklyn Wedding with Flowing Flowers and Hints of Citrus
Sarah and Scott originally had a large celebration planned, but like many other brides, COVID changed that. In a cautious manner they decided to move forward with their wedding with just their 12 closest family and friends. Despite the small guest count, the design aspect was large. Their outdoor ceremony took place surrounded by banyan trees under the most stunning Chuppah. Reception was followed with the most divine tent with flowing florals and hints of citrus.
Perfectly Pink Fairy-Tale Wedding in Romania
Sarah & Benjamin wanted guests to feel like they were entering a magical world when they arrived at their wedding and the day was full of awe-inspiring details which made that vision a reality. From getting married at the castle-like Wonderland Cluj Resort, to the horse-drawn carriage fit for royalty, to the show-stopping, jaw-droppingly lush, floor-to-ceiling florals by Elena Bodea – Las Floristas that filled both the ceremony and reception, guests were transported into a fairy tale for the day. Add to that that these two look like they walked out of a magazine themselves, and this may be one of the most dreamy weddings ever! The gallery is full of more incredible photos by Ioana Porav Photography, from the stunning rose petal seals on the stationery by Invogue Art, to Sarah’s romantic Milla Nova wedding gown (a nod to her Hispanic roots), to even more photos of their unbelievable florals, and trust us, you absolutely want to see them all!
Timeless DC Wedding with Shades of Green
Almost instantly, a wedding in Washington, DC has visions of ultimate grandeur. Jen and Nick wed in the early spring at the Four Seasons and they left no stone unturned when it came to the ins and outs of their wedding design. Jen’s favorite blooms are the ever-stunning and lush magnolias and with that color inspiration as their jumping point, they coveted a white/ivory and green wedding with gold accents. Florist Amy from Amy Lauren Floral Designs expressed and continued the color palette by using sumptuous white peonies and white roses along with the glossy magnolia leaves. This wedding has too many impeccable elements to it, both in design and in personality. We’re just glad that Kristen Gardner captured all the splendor in full!
Blush Colored Wedding in the Temecula Desert
Let’s all take a moment (or two) out of our day to check out this bliss-inducing Janita Mestre wedding. It’s delightfully in the desert, so of course you’re going to spot a few cacti at Galway Downs, but you’re going to see such a dreamy color palette too. Being so close to Valentine’s Day, Stephanie and Alex wanted to evoke love all throughout, so they picked pink as their go-to hue. Big and bright blush and ivory florals by Events by Floral Sensations complemented the eye-catching David’s Bridal mauve bridesmaids’ dresses, and we loved this idea, too. Instead of continuing the soft tones everywhere, shake up the colors like Stephanie and Alex and throw a deep hue in the same color family somewhere that will be seen. Adding it to the bridesmaids’ dresses was a clever touch without overwhelming the couple’s desire to have an airy feel to their wedding day.
Instead of the traditional church wedding and reception, many brides choose a chapel in the mountains as their wedding venue. Two friends married several years ago in a chapel built around a huge boulder. The guests rented several cabins in the area and spent a weekend celebrating. Inspired by that, I give you a simple mountain wedding, simply southern.
Pale Blue and Gray
I am love love loving this color combination! The two shades are fantastic separate, or combinable into a dusky gray/blue. Any accent color would pop against these neutrals. I want a complete outfit in these shade! Or a house, or a wedding! I’ll take anything. The colors perfectly fit this cold winter’s day.
Being a true Southern girl at heart, I adore weddings that take place at marinas, on yachts, or at sea.Â Crisp navy, shades of blue,Â and white look amazing against the backdrop of the water, and adding punches of other primary colors, like red and yellow,Â is key.
Red and Aqua
E and I were discussing the pros and cons of having a red wedding. For me, the pros (looks fabulous on brunettes, favorite color) outweigh the cons (hello, Christmas theme anyone?). I was happy to find this article on Martha Stewart. It suggests using it for a summer theme. I’m sure you could adapt for any season.
