Before the holidays, we showed you a sneak peek from this fall wedding. Here is the rest of the story.
Color. I love working with clients who stay true to their own styles and sensibilities. Being that this wedding was in the fall, people naturally think fall colors like brown, deep orange, and mustard yellows. Not here. The bride chose jewel tones with deep purple / eggplant, dark red, gold and pewter / silver for her color palette.
Check out her stylish pewter colored jacket. She also carried a sparkly clutch with gold beading.
At the reception at the Newseum, we agreed that alternating shimmery tablecloths in Butterscotch and Black Cherry, along with eggplant colored napkins was a smart choice. Amber colored uplights washed the room in a warm glow.
Flowers. For centerpieces, Petals Edge Floral Design nailed the style perfectly, alternating between low clusters of red and orange mokara orchids and eggplant mini-calla lilies, and tall submerged orange cymbidium orchids. Their design was cohesive, with just the right amount of variety in color and textures to keep it interesting but not over the top.
