Blush + Marsala: Does It Get Any Prettier Than This!?

This is one of those posts that could have gone on and on forever, there was just too much goodness to work with. Because while it’s no surprise that we love blush around these parts, add in some pops of marsala and our hearts pitter patter even faster than usual. Charmed Events Group took the pretty palette and ran with it and we’re so glad they did. Jasmine Lee captured every stunning spec and it’s all in our Vault ready to be enjoyedright this way!

From Charmed Events GroupIt was love at first sight for this lovely couple. For their wedding, they dreamt up a romantic wedding of marsala, gold and blush to complement the venue that they chose and dreamt up a European experience for all their guests to enjoy. The bride wore the most amazing blush dress by Vera Wang and her bridesmaids wore various blush and rose gold gowns by Amsale. The men looked dapper in their Menguin tuxes.

The ceremony took place inside at Wente Winery; Gavita Flora did an amazing job of creating the dreamiest arch with lush foliage and blooms accented with lots of candles and foliage lining the aisles. Guests were given petal toss bags upon entering the ceremony and as the couple kissed and said “I do”, guests celebrated by tossing rose petals in celebration.

For their cocktail hour, they wanted to re-create the love they have for Italy. They were engaged in Italy so they wanted to pay homage to that special place by inviting guests to their seats with homemade limoncello.

Their reception was a beautiful affair under a tent of stringed lights! We created an elegant feel by pairing grey linens and modern, gold chairs. The marsala and blush blooms really popped on the tables and guests were seated at place settings of grey and custom wax seals. As the sun went down, the atmosphere became a rowdy yet romantic one as the tent of stringed lights came to life, allowing guests to celebrate and dance the night away.

Modern Art + Romantic Gardens Combine to Create Wedding Magic

A stylishly chic dress + gorgeous florals; really, what more does a girl want? With these pics by Kayla Barker we don’t need to venture far to find this and more. Designed and planned by Anne-Claire Allen Planning & Design, with ridiculously beautiful blooms by Bows and Arrows, this shoot mixes modern art with pure romance and we’re 100% on board with every bit of it. See it all in our Vault right here!

From Anne-Claire Allen Planning & DesignIt all seemed to click when we came across the Nasher Sculpture Center in the Dallas Arts District. Our team envisioned an ‘art brought to life’ shoot that embodied a mix of the elements found in sculptures and more modern museum-like settings with soft, feminine touches of ethereal beauty; essentially a painter’s palette meshing with a sculptor’s completed work to create one overall piece of living art! When we discovered the Nasher Sculpture Center and their incredible collection of art (including Rodin, Picasso, Calder, Kooning and more) the overall vision came to life and the beautiful sculpture lawn was just the icing on the cake.

Together with our team of A-list vendors and real-life Dallas couple, Katy and Rocky Cherry, we chose unique details and textures to complete this true, life-like work of art to inspire weddings and events for years to come. We chose to combine the soft, modern concepts of a bride, her dress and decor and pair it with the richness and masculinity of her handsome groom! The structured Sarah Seven dresses from a&be bridal shop along with sleek hair and make-up by Meg B incorporated the modern details of the venue. The concrete, slate and marble textures used were inspired by the sculpture works of art around the lawn. Romantic florals by Bows and Arrows and soft calligraphy by Fig & Flourish softened the modern edges and incorporated the soft tones of vintage abstract art. There is something so mesmerizing about blending the stillness of artwork with real life celebrations and we feel we achieved that with this romantic and beautiful styled shoot.

From the Bride… Steven and I met in Texas, just by chance. Turns out, it was the chance of a lifetime. From that moment on, we started to build a life together and never looked back. A few years later, Steven proposed in Big Sur on a California road trip up Highway 1. To no one’s surprise, I said yes.

How we decided to get married in Italy is still not completely clear to me, but it was the best decision we could have ever made. It was the perfect place to gather our closest family and friends and enjoy what we love most; eating, drinking, laughter and exploring new places.

We were married in San Galgano, a roofless 12th century abbey, on a warm and beautiful day in late September. The mayor of a nearby town performed the ceremony and honored us with the most poetic and kind words we could have ever hoped for. It was one of the most breathtaking moments of our lives; even our guitarist joined in the happy tears.

We had rented a villa in Tuscany for the week, and there, under a sky of twinkling lights, we had the most spectacular dinner feast. The traditional Italian meal was served family style and wine flowed freely late into the night. That evening, my mother presented us with the most wonderful gift we could have imagined. Unbeknownst to us, she had asked each of our dear guests to share their favorite memories of both Steven and me during dinner. Throughout the evening’s celebration, the people we love most in the world, shared stories that made us laugh, made us cry, and left us feeling so incredibly blessed to have such amazing people share this truly remarkable day with us. Our wedding day is something that we think about often and we know we will cherish forever.

For us, Italy was a dream; something out of a fairy tale. It took a lot of faith and trust to plan a wedding plus a week full of group activities and events from a distance (Mom in Michigan, me in Seattle, wedding planner in Italy), but it was truly one of the most extraordinary experiences of our lives. We are eternally grateful to all those who traveled so far and did so much to make our week in Italy an unparalleled experience that we will hold in our hearts always.
