{Fun Summer Palette}: Red, Shades of Aqua + White

June 9, 2009


{Red, Aqua, Dusty Aqua + White}

Aqua and red has long been a favorite color combination of mine. There is just something so very fun about how these two colors play off of one another. I think what I love most about these colors together is that it's hard to take them very serious. Simply put, these colors are kinda quirky. Aqua & red are perfect for any bride who wants to set the tone for a fun filled day. Anna's wedding was to take place in a charming little red barn. In my design, I chose a lovely pale shade of aqua for the bridesmaids dresses.

To contrast, ladies carried red bouquets wrapped in silk ribbon. Table settings consisted of red napkins wrapped with aqua ribbons and monochromatic centerpieces. A red and white gingham pattern was used throughout the wedding on things like favors & invitations. Guests went home with jars of homemade apple butter & memories that would last a lifetime.
