“I wanted to merge a cool bohemian vibe with a fun and playful feel.” Began events designer, Allison.

“I wanted the styling to be visually powerful with bright, beautiful, rich colors and varying textures, expressing a distinct style, while at the same time portraying a more lighthearted and buoyant mood. I wanted images that would make both the eyes and heart happy!”

“To accomplish this bright, bold, and beautiful look for your own wedding, you’ll first want to nail down an inspiring color palette!  Start by picking out the color that most excites you, then add some gorgeous complimenting colors.  If it excites you, it will inspire you!  Play around with different combinations, gather images that you find aesthetically appealing, and most importantly, don’t be afraid to use multiple bold colors!! Use your main color (teal in our case) to add some fun to some important elements (i.e. bride’s shoes, groom’s tie and socks, and a pop of bold color in the florals)! ” She explained.

“For the aisle I used potted succulents and some beautiful colored glass candle holders. Since I had so much variation in the plants themselves, as well as the different colored candle holders, I knew I wanted all of the pots to be uniform.”

“To compliment the brass elements I was using on the tables I decided that brass pots would be a perfect fit, however they aren’t necessarily available in large quantities at an affordable price! So for these babies, I just loaded up on terra cotta pots and metallic brass paint… and viola!  They turned out beautifully! For the ceremony seating, I mixed and matched vintage couches and chairs for a fun twist!”

“To me, the most important part of your wedding look is that it represents YOUR personality!  You don’t have to do what’s trendy, just do YOU and it’ll be perfect!” Allison added.
