Amber Gustafson at Amber Events sent us Nicole and Rocco’s California wedding ~ and it’s a virtual rainbow of purples and pinks and burgundy! From the luscious wedding flowers, to the bridesmaid’s dresses to the plums in the centerpieces to the candy buffet! If you’re thinking of using these rich colors in your wedding, and you love lots and lots of gorgeous details … you’ll love today’s featured wedding!

Killer shoes!

Nicole’s makeup was done by Little Black Book member Fiore Beauty … gorgeous!

from Amber at Amber EventsNicole and Rocco were high school sweethearts and have been together for over 8 years. We had about fifteen months to plan their Old World-Inspired Italian wedding at the Athenaeum at Caltech.

You can read lots more of their story over on Amber’s blog!

The gorgeous photos were captured by Carolyn Troadec of Troadec Photography.  Aren’t the flower girls just too cute for words!
