It's a Colorful Life

Move over, pastels and neutrals--it's time for something a little more daring.

Move over, pastels and neutrals—it’s 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 d’oeuvres and cocktails, this is inspiration for a wedding your guests have never experienced before. —CW

Modern Garden

It’s all in the arrangement to put a modern twist on classic wedding flora: coral and peach roses and draping tulips, peach stock, green cymbidium orchids, and hanging amaranthus create a luxurious texture with bright, spring hues.
