{Modern Romance}: A Palette of Poppy Red, Gray + White

May 4, 2009

{Poppy Red, Gray + White}

I just love the color red. Don't you? Especially when its used in a playful & quirky kind of way. Just look at how fun this color palette! It's unique, its edgy, & its even a little kitchy feeling. It's perfect for the bride and groom who are interested in making sure their guests feel that carefree "lets all have a good time" kinda vibe. For Madison, I wanted to bring to life her ideas- the modern sensibility she was going for... and the overall sense of fun she was hoping to communicate. Madison told me that she and her fiance planned to get married roof top and then have a reception in a city loft right in the midst of all the hustle and bustle that is NYC! {continued...}

Her space she said, was beautiful, but she admitted she was having a hard time figuring out how to infuse color into their reception. For her design, I incorporated red and white laterns which hung from the rafters. These big pops of color truly set the tone and made for a lovely visual. Ladies wore dresses inspired by candy stripers and groomsmen wore gray suits with red and white checked neck ties. Since they are both graphic designers, I opted to create various visuals in unique & punchy fonts! In lieu of a wedding cake, the newlyweds opted for a cupcake buffet! Guests left this wedding with big smiles on their faces and memories that would last a lifetime.
