Is Red The New Blush!? We Vote Yes!

I’m all for beautiful blush and pretty pink any day of the week but pops of red might just be my new favorite wedding hue. Have any doubt? Just gaze upon Samantha Kirk’s elopement inspiration pics right here and you’ll be dialing up your designer with new ideas pronto. See every image in our Vault right this way!

From Samantha Kirk PhotographyEvery bride dreams of running off to a far away country to elope with her love, so we wanted to inspire that bride with this Italian styled elopement which happens to be nestled in the hills of California. We wanted to create a story that shows the love of these two as they go off and elope, sharing moments of just them two without the chaos of a wedding day. The beautiful hills and calming environment is what any bride would dream of for her wedding day. How beautiful is this red inspired bouquet to bring in that pop of color for such a day as she wears the beautiful Hayley Paige dress. So much inspiration for the bride to be.

From the Grooms… We pulled our color inspiration from the persimmon tree, on the side of the house, and the stonework around the home. We wanted to embrace our surroundings and play off what was already naturally there. As a result, we drew from the beautiful fall colors, which ended up being the perfect color palette!

Chris’ parents have a house in St. Helena so we love the town and know the area well. It looks especially great in the fall when the leaves have turned colors!

We actually had our “official” wedding in Nevada City, CA (in Gold Country) however a lot of our close friends could not make it – or were not invited due to space constraints. Consequently we decided to hold another ceremony and reception for close friends in the Bay Area that couldn’t make the initial event.

We had such an incredible time. It was a beautiful day; the air was crisp but the sun was shining and there was no wind (which is something you hope for when planning an outdoor event!) The leaves of the trees had already turned colors, but the leaves had not yet dropped. We were very thankful to be surrounded by close family and friends.

From Kate Siegel Fine Events Chris and Andrew’s wedding is the height of curated autumn style – each detail so thoughtfully chosen to draw feelings of warmth and intimacy out of the fall splendor. A color palette inspired by persimmon trees – deep orange, yellows and reds – perfectly matched the changing leaves of their St. Helena venue and lent a coziness to a ceremony with only six guests.

Shades of grey marked the invitation suite and cake, giving a neutral contrast to the November opulence. Dark wood pieces mixed with industrial accents balanced warmth with masculinity and modernity, while tall, carved candelabras added a classic touch. A stunning table garland designed by Max Gill mixed an array of foliage and florals into a lovely, wild centerpiece of the outdoor reception.

A Colorful Sonoma Wedding with an Ombre Petal Lined Aisle

If you thought this was just another Sonoma wine country wedding, think again! Because this couple not only rocked an ombre aisle of rose petals on their big day, but they also incorporated color like you wouldn’t believe. From the prettiest pink reception dreamed up by Charmed Events Group, LLC to the blushing bouquets, Melanie Duerkopp captured it all to share in The Vault!

From Charmed Events Group LLCLet’s have color, more color…And lots of it! This was the resounding theme of this sweet couple as we started to design the day. Because their wedding was taking place during the heart of summer at one of the most beautiful venues in Wine Country, we wanted to make the wedding fun, colorful, cheery and bright! We used a fun color palette of sherbert hues in coral, mustard yellows, peach, and shades of pink for the design, paired with summer fruits you’d find on fruit stands such as mini oranges and lemons.

Their ceremony took place on the lawn at Cornerstone Gardens with the lovely vineyards on the side and a waterlily pond in the front. With the help of Poppy’s Petalworks, we created a draped opening that was adorned with jasmine vines and bright and cheery blooms. The aisle showcased a decadent and full display of ombre petals in their color scheme. We adorned the aisle chairs with colorful ribbons in their palette accented with blooms.

For cocktail hour, we had a “refresh” station of flavored lemonades for guests to enjoy. Each guest had a mason jar labeled with their names that were pre-filled and guests were invited to take their mason jars home as a memento of the day. We had bowls of fruit to welcome guests at the bar during cocktail hour as well as when they arrived at the ceremony.

Their reception took place under a beautiful tent. We had a beautiful tablescape of coral linens accented with fresh bowls of fruits and beautiful flowers in gold urns. The most unique part of their wedding were the customized, floral placemats that were individualized per guest, they made for an amazing pop of color on the tables. We also accented each place setting with mini sprigs of oranges. Guests enjoyed dinner under the tent and then danced the night away in the barn.
