Are you in love with a color palette, theme, venue, wedding gown or all of the above and don't feel like they fit together? When I was planning my wedding, I think the hardest part for me, at times, was reining in all of my ideas and figuring out how they all could work together cohesively. With oodles and oodles of inspiration out there, there are no shortage of beautiful ideas available; but figuring out what to use, what to drop and what to modify can be tricky business.
The wedding that I'm featuring today is what actually got me thinking about this common conundrum. Not necessarily because the bride felt this way, but because I think that she selected a really unique color palette (red and cerulean blue); yet she chose to combine it with a more classic garden venue and rustic style. The colors are unexpected, but they're brought out in classic ways - red bicycles and red ribbons wrapped around aqua blue mason jars. Lots of white hydrangeas, vintage hankies, burlap and chalkboards all give this wedding a subtle rustic charm.
Beautifully designed by Bella Weddings & Events and photographed by Tammy Swales Photography, Evelyn and McLean were married last July at a private cottage in Kent, New York. The classically beautiful bride wore an adorable tea length wedding dress, a pearl necklace and a flower in her hair, and walked down the aisle holding a romantic ivory flower bouquet. The wedding ceremony took place outside by the lake, and then guests enjoyed cocktails and lawn games before moving into the tent for dinner and dancing.
