For the couple who doesn’t shy away from color, why not go all out with bold, brilliant hues. Magenta, chartreuse, and ice blue work surprisingly well when paired with bright white. To keep your wedding theme from looking too loud, focus on one bright color as your main hue, and use the other colors as accents in the details.
For a fall wedding, Pantone Cypress has just the right amount of sophistication and elegance for a botanical theme. Think lush garden foliage paired with romantic fabric draping in an outdoor atmosphere.
This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful celebration of Michelle and Heart, held Putah Creek Lodge in the UC Davis Arboretum, Davis, CA. Since the groom is a student and the bride is an employee of UC Davis, they decided to celebrate all things Davis on their special day, including renting the vintage double-decker bus from the campus, using the Davis pedi-cab as their getaway “car” and hiring the Cal Aggie Band-Uh Marching Band to surprise everyone (including the groom) mid-ceremony right after the pronouncement.
This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful celebration of Katie and Billy, held at a private residence on Lake Winnipesaukee in Wolfeboro, NH. The bride is a daughter of a florist and she wanted to find a place they could bring their own creativity to and create a laid-back, relaxing atmosphere. They spend each summer at the lake, so it was fitting to have the ceremony in a place they both love.
It turned out to be quite the undertaking. After a full week of pouring rain, and a 911 call for an unresponsive groom resulting in 7 stitches, the wedding stress settled in. The bride had her hair done the morning of the wedding while looking out the window at the grey sky and swaying trees and feared another storm was on its way. About 30 minutes before the ceremony the sky turned sunny, the clouds diminished and they were able to have the ceremony outside of the tent where she had dreamed of. It didn’t start raining again until 10:00…right as the night ended.
This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful destination wedding celebration of Sara and Matthew, held at St. Pius X Church in Plainview, Long Island, NY., with a reception at Majestic Gardens in Rocky Point, Long Island, NY. The couple really wanted a wedding that reflected both of their personalities, while capturing the glam of the 1920s. So, they had a church wedding, and a ballroom reception – both of which reflected the couples love of good music, fashion and cocktails. They couple are both teachers, and met teaching in the same school, so the choir from the high school in which they work sang at the ceremony, and a younger woman they both taught sang old standards at the cocktail hour.
Pantone Comfrey, a muted, mossy jade, is the perfect green shade to use when playing up natural tones at your wedding. Whimsical touches, like the dragonfly motif in this invitation, will complement a fairytale forest ambiance.

This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful celebration of Jessica and Robby, held at the Bluemont Vineyards in Bluemont, Virginia on top of Mt. Weather. The couple met in college while studying to be meteorologists so when they got engaged they decided to have a weather-themed wedding. There were many little things that came together to make their wedding special and represent exactly who they are as a couple. The program fans had weather backgrounds, the table names were named after famous hurricanes, and the cake topper was uniquely made to look like the bride was forecasting the weather. The cupcakes had clouds, sun, and lightning bolt decorations on them and the wedding favors were wine glasses that had umbrellas with rain showers on them.
