Outdoor weddings present some of the loveliest of gatherings we’ve seen. There are so many different elements to choose from. Whether you will be on a beach with the water at your back, or cliffside with the majestic view of what lies ahead, or maybe you are on a vineyard with charming and lush surroundings. Where ever you are the natural elements usually set precedent, and one sure way to give that space your own touch is with color. For this we chose fabulous fuchsia.
We love the idea of matching bridesmaids dresses with the bouquets in the wedding. Moving on to the reception, small but prominent details such as fuchsia napkins make the entire setting pop with color and life and give a personal touch to this pretty scene. The centerpiece florals play off of the simple fuchsia theme and give a finished look that leaves us with a beautiful memory, and some fabulous ideas…

Many sisters have close relationships but these sisters, Candace and Gillian of Hallifax, Nova Scotia are so close, they even married brothers! It’s a lot like the sisters in the fable of Snow White + Red Rose, which inspired the gorgeous photo shoot, Everything’s Coming Up Roses.
I can’t get enough of these stunning images, especially the bold pops of red against the muted and natural background. The florals by Chelsea Lee Flowers are rustic and elegant. I particularly enjoy the greenery and candelabras suspended from a tree over the dinner table. Check out the table design as well. The soft gold and white color palette is a great fit for this romantic design, as are the garland and moss runner. I adore Red Rose’s sweetheart wrap shrug, which is so striking. I’m also smitten with the grooms’ faux-fur trimmed jackets. I’m so grateful these wedding professionals have shared their talents with us!
