Move over, pastels and neutralsits time for something a little more daring. Splashes of color pop against a white gallery canvas, and playful accessories bring two gorgeous wedding dresses to life. From a stunning ceremony site to dreamlike hors doeuvres and cocktails, this is inspiration for a wedding your guests have never experienced before. CW
