Turquoise, Red and Brown..what have you just found?

Color combinations can be so exciting! They can be a subtle part of the design or even ALL of the design. This event took place in Malibu at Calimigos Ranch. The bride asked me to create a wedding that used the colors turquoise, red and brown. She was also inspired by Chinese lanterns. The color palette and lanterns made me think of orchids and a deep dark bamboo. Simplicity & romance was also important to the couple so they asked that the centerpieces be low & have lighting/candles.

This was a super sweet couple and I enjoyed working with them so much! I wish them the very best! Here is there story:

The centerpieces were various sized dark bamboo topped with green moss and/or orchids. The center cylinder had copper wire mingling with orchids and a submersed LED. The cluster was surrounded by black river rock and ti-leaf wrapped votives.
The bridal party carried hand-painted paper parasols instead of a bouquet! Loved these!! Amazing find that I must admit matched perfectly!
