Our current color obsession is a feminine palette with some truly elegant flair.

Why we love it: Summer is around the corner, which means wedding color palettes are about to get more vibrant. There's just something about lush gardens in full bloom, fun, fruity cocktails and those vivid sunsets that breathe life into color schemes—we're so excited!

Why it works: The aqua and pink combination is feminine and fun, but when styled with elegant fabric draping, glitzy tablecloths and fine china it's completely elevated into a glamorous affair. Color is drawn in through unexpected elements like uplighting and a vintage getaway car, making for visual treats throughout the celebration.
