Carolina Bride

It's a Colorful Life

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

Jack Daniels sausage, charred sweet potato, candied pepper hash, spiced Italian sausage, and Jack Daniels reduction.

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.
