A Perfectly Pink Wedding

Despite being major pink lovers, it’s sometimes tough to convince the groom-to-be of an ultra-feminine color scheme {and can you blame him?}.  But this bride and groom captured a happy medium, with plenty of pink to go around, mixing various shades of light pinks and peaches with sophisticated metallic and rose gold accents.

From the bride: The theme for our wedding came from a decor inspiration shoot by Jill LaFleur. It was linen tablecloths with soft peach cottage roses and passion vines. Romantic and sweet. We added in crystal chandeliers and soft pink mercury glass hurricanes filled with candles. I made scallop-edged round burlap runners for the tables and planned for the peach hued cottage rose arrangements to take center stage. April Peet of April Flowers was a huge help in visualizing all the different concepts of the day. She does amazing flowers, but just as vital are the straightforward opinions she can deliver. Just a few weeks before the wedding, I was exhausted and told her we were not having anything at the ceremony except a sprinkling of rose petals- she said no and convinced me that, me and my personality would not be happy with that.  She was so right! So my sister, my mom and I cut and sewed and hung and slaved over the ceremony backdrop, but it definitely paid off. During the ceremony, the layers of tulle flowed in the breeze and made the scene very magical. We also decided to have a thick layer of rose petals extend up to the backdrop and that little detail added a ton more magic to the setting.
