I'm always amazed how a little pop of color can infuse so much style and whimsy into a wedding. Take this day designed by Laurie Arons where she helped the couple pull off an unexpected color palette of shades of mustard yellow paired with midnight navy blue. From the Sarah Winward's florals to A Day in May Design's invitations, they carried the palette throughout and the drop-dead gorgeous gallery is from none other than Jose Villa.

From Laurie Arons Special Events...Our bride Wilhemlina loved the idea of using a bold and unusual color combination for her March wedding. Knowing that flowering mustard is prominent in Napa Valley that time of year, we decided to use bold mustard yellow, complimented by beautiful midnight navy, on the printed materials.

Since their venue Durham Ranch is in many ways a clean palate, we could really let the flowers be the design statement of the wedding. Each aspect of the wedding received a stand out installation of floral that progressed in richness of color.

Starting with the ceremony, Sarah Winward and her team created a full dramatic arch for the couple’s backdrop. The arch was constructed of incredible blooming white branches, which are only available for a couple weeks during the season. After cocktails, guests moved into the barn at Durham Ranch for dinner under a magical ceiling installation of green vines and delicate hanging lights. It covered 40 feet of ceiling and was a labor of love for the teams from Sarah Winward and Got Light, who executed it to perfection.

To close out the night, we revealed a dance tent built over the Durham Ranch pool that was full of bold yellow flowers. My favorite part of the tent was the bright yellow entryway valance Sarah constructed out of forsythia. It was unexpected, yet so perfect to set the fun tone inside.
