Taking inspiration for your wedding from your surroundings is a sure way to create a beautifully cohesive event design, and today’s inspirational editorial in shades of blue and white is the perfect example of how to do that. Keeping your eyes open on a simple walk around your venue will show you options for your color palette (for example, the detailed blue and white murals and painted tile throughout this private estate are an obvious choice), as well as dictate the formality of the event. This garden setting is beautifully echoed through lush, botanical-inspired floral designs.

“Hidden away in the foothills off Lawrence Canyon in Southern California, sits a private estate which we used to draw inspiration from for tones and design elements.
Beautiful nooks featuring intricately painted blue and white murals served as natural backdrops and lent itself to the clean palette of colors for our florals. The design was traditional yet fresh, with a nod to more modern details such as the stunning Alexandra Grecco gown with a deep V-front & back, and delicate material which flowed and moved with every turn our bride, Miss California, made. Our groom’s attire was also modern with a trendy blue jacket, and fitted slacks complete with an old-school pocket watch as nod to signs of an era long past. Grooms oftentimes have heirlooms pieces passed down from generation to generation, and something borrowed isn’t always reserved just for the bride.
Our table scape was traditional, and used beautiful pieces from the designer’s private collection, such as blue scalloped lace chargers, bone handled flatware, and crystal stemware, along with the floral centerpieces he created, which were a lush green & white in palette.
The look was completed by soft shades of silk runners sitting atop natural linen runners for a layered look, with off white tapered candles. It spoke of a quiet, yet sophisticated elegance.
Most Weddings these days also offer little sweets in addition to the traditional cake, and our custom made little oreo-gems with our blue/grey tones in a marbled watercolor effect were the perfect touch! Imagine little pieces of chocolate heaven with colors that compliment your own, for your special day. We think it’s a beautiful way to incorporate an extra little touch of class.”
