Our next two boards are by Yelena...

The first board features the raspberry color prominently in different shades for a warm, rich feel. I also incorporated a cream color to add depth to the palette of red and white. The unusual cake, adorable changes of shoes and ruby sparkling wine add cute unexpected details to the day.

Here is Yelena's second submission...

For the second submission, I introduced navy into the raspberry and white color scheme. I think the navy adds richness and prep to the feel of the wedding, and pairs beautifully with pinks. I chose the pearl necklace with navy ribbon to bring in a vintage vibe, which the bride mentioned she would like. Unexpected details include the navy satin shoes, pearl necklace with a twist, vibrant seating chart and favor baskets with shortcake and strawberries, which I thought were a cute, quaint favor for an outdoor wedding.

Credits (from L to R): Navy and raspberry seating chart via the Knot, Amsale party dress, pearl necklace from subersive jewelry, silk taffeta wedding dress from J Crew, strawberries and shortcake favor baskets from Martha Stewart, blue satin peep toes from J Crew, and bouquets from Artfool.
