We love to see bolder colors used in wedding design, but we’ll be the first to admit that it can be incredibly challenging to use vibrant hues in an elegant way. The way that this wedding navigates an incredible use of color might be what we love the most about it, and that’s thanks in large part to the amazing florals by Sarah Winward.
Today’s bride, Wilhelmina, has a personal penchant for rich color, but her mom wanted to maintain an elegant aesthetic. We think that their decision to use a natural palette at the outdoor ceremony, introduce a bit more vibrancy into the bridal party bouquets, and then really dive into full color at the reception is a clever and unique way to bring the wedding to life. Creating a “branch” arbor for the ceremony using just blooming branches and white blossoms ensures that the design fits perfectly with the natural spring setting, while tucking a touch of yellow and peach into the bouquets beautifully compliments the bridesmaids’ buttery gowns. Working with very narrow tables at the reception meant that Sarah had to get creative with her tablescape designs, and we think the clean white linens punctuated by bright hues and those lemon-hued taper candles is genius – especially when you look up. Covering the ceiling in an incredible tapestry of bright green foliage creates a major statement and we’re sure that no guest will forget this. Ever.

We always think the most beautiful inspiration for weddings comes from nature. After all, Mother Nature has done a wonderful job, hasn't she? In today's featured editorial, the creative team elected to work with a very simple, pared-down palette of green and brown, both usually found as the base colors in nature. Highlighting the beauty of these natural tones caused them to push the bounds of their creativity, resulting in a beautiful combination of simple, natural designs with a modern aesthetic.
