The colors you choose for your wedding play such an important part to the feel of your entire day. You have to think about how they fit you as a couple, the time of year, definitely the venue down to what flowers you choose and how much of the specific colors to implement. From when I began doing weddings 9 years ago when discussing something like purple it was pretty much light, dark or both. Now that this industry has leaped in to such a customized world and the colors offered have become endless, it is important to remain true and specific to your palette. This brings me to Lindsay and Zachs gorgeous wedding. The past couple years the plums and eggplants have been making a statement and pulling in flowers to represent that is very limited. We have Calla Lilies which are a more modern and sleek look, scabiosas which are more on the wildflower side, ranunculus which are breathtaking but not always available and outside of that we need to achieve that look by pulling in things like succulents and actual plums. When working with Lindsay she was so kick back over all on knowing what style she wanted with long runner type centerpieces, she wanted to pull in some rich vine foliage to the bouquets, also requested to use some cream cotton or jute to finish the bouquets off, wanted some succulents as well. She mentioned and sent a sample picture of her making of her killer gilded gold water bottle table numbers but never did I know she was going to knock my socks off with all the other details she put in to this event herself. She had custom wood pins made to enhance each boutonniere for the men that were in the shape of squirrels, dinosaurs, fox and bears, gold gilded dinosaurs scattered in specific places at the reception, wood heart garlands with specified signage around the reception, her own pallets for her ceremony altar area. All the way down to the very dedicated detail of taking every guests facebook profile picture and making it a Polaroid for them to find their faces and then the table numbers. Such a gorgeous day this past August at The Evergreen. You can see by the photos how rich and powerful her simple color scheme was!
