Cranberry and Gold with Subtle Nods to the Harry Potter Books

Pops of deep cranberry, gold, and purple paired effortlessly with this modern meets vintage wedding inspiration in a way that we truly weren't expecting! With event design by Southern Magnolias Events and the loveliest of florals by Flowers by Kristine, this dream team made magic happen on this day. And lucky for us, Mager Image Photography was behind the lens to capture every single detail on this day at the Pear Tree Estate.

From the team, "When Emily first came to us with her idea, we were immediately taken with the intense colors and elegant feel. These shades were so popular for fall and winter weddings, so we embarked on the challenge of taking burgundy and gold and creating a spring-friendly look!"
