Wedding Decor ~ Dont Be Afraid of Color

Go Bold with Color

Couples looking for an easy, chic way to  personalize the feel of  their wedding decor,  should consider decorating with color.  Each year we have several clients  who come to us with a strong color palette in mind. As designers, we love the challenge of pairing a strong exuberant color palette with the perfect offsetting base tones to create a design with WOW factor.   A great color combination is one that creates attention and can stand alone.  The outdoors is a living canvas,  and many couples believe they should work within the color palette naturally created by nature, ( yes that's one way to go) but why not enhance that color palette?

Clos Le Chance winery is gorgeous, and reminds you of a midsummer nights dream with the stucco building atop of  terraced vineyard with rising mountains in the background.  This setting needs little embellishment, but if you look at the details of this design you will see how the bright colors actually bring all of the outdoor elegance offered by this this spectacular wedding location into focus and out of the background.

Audrey and Luis came to us with a very clear vision of their color palette.  Audrey wanted an overall design that was sophisticated and elegant with a hint of whimsy and she was in love with the idea of using Coral as the primary color.  Coral is so alive, it pops against almost any base color but there is a fine line between alive with color and OMG with color, so we knew we had to be smart on how to incorporate it into the design.    We used a heavy infusion of coral in their stationary and collateral, this just made sense and allowed us to set the tone and introduce the color pallet to the guests, a brief snippet of what they could expect on the big day.  The next step was weaving such a vibrant color into the floral design , this was a bigger challenge.  A combination of coral-peachy dahlias, green hydrangea, dusty miller foliage, peach stock and peach-champagne garden roses were selected.  The coral tones would be subtle but would pop with in the arrangements.  To beautifully frame in the ceremony, we created two regal pave'-style arrangements in the soft and subtle hues of the celebration. These arrangements were created within our own matching footed urns with coordinating pedestals standing about 5' tall and include white Dutch hydrangea, white dahlias,  white Oriental lilies, full and open roses "Anastasia", "Sahara" and clusters of champagne-peach stock. The look was tailored and elegant.    Out guests tables were adorned with low and abundant designs featuring cool green-white hydrangea, September dahlias in apricot and champagne garden roses and Ecuadoran roses in cream to champagne-peach-coral, and textured elements such as dove-grey dusty miller and berries.  The guest were thrilled to take home the elegant arrangements at the end of the night- Alicia Falango, Alicia K Designs. 

After tackling the big stuff, the team let their creative muse loose.  A white weathered birdcage sat beside the guest book and we created a custom card sign in the couple's signature color for the guests to leave their wishes for the newlyweds. To add more visual interest and an extra snack for their guests, the couple provided a candy bar, however what made this extra special was color coordinating it in just the perfect hues.
