I can't quite pin-point the style of this wedding. It has the personality of a whimsical affair and the elegance of a classic wedding. Maybe it lies somewhere in-between the two but the result is nothing short of extraordinary. It's a medley of pretty pastels and elegant details planned by Favor Me Events with florals by Willow Floral Boutique and photography by Red White And Green Photography. Click here for so much more.

From the Bride... As two very creative people my husband and I tackled planning our wedding from beginning to end. Myself being the more visual creative mind and my Husband being the business creative mind we planned a wedding that stayed on budget as we spent many weekends and nights DIY-ing away. With a love for modern, romantic and classic styles I managed to dream up a wedding day that touched all points.

My inspiration was watercolor (used for invitation). Our wedding reception was held at an art museum so it seemed appropriate to incorporate anything from watercolor to using freehand and brush stokes for decor. I made table runners that were dip dyed the color of the invitations and I did an ombre effect as to resemble watercolor. I also incorporated a frame design that was used in the invitation and as a backdrop for the sweetheart table. Watercolor and frame shapes seemed to tie into the art museum theme well!

Our colors were a marriage all of their own! From the very beginning I knew the light jade color (called "Dusty Shale" from J. Crew) was the color I wanted to highlight. It is such a romantic and vintage turned modern hue. It is a very delicate light green where in some light gives the appearance of being grey. I often refer to it as a light jade (although I've heard people call it mint). I decided on this color for the bridesmaids dresses that were from J. Crew. My only concern was if the color looked too Spring-like for an early Fall wedding. But after "marrying" up all the other colors of dark red tones, gold and brown it really felt like an "early Fall" palette. The Groomsmen wore navy suits with brown stripe ties. The main accompanying color would be gold. Which meant gold accessories for the girls along with brown shawls to warm up the palette. Gold charger plates, chairs, candle holders and such were featured at the reception.
