While discussing the design of a fall wedding with one of her brides, Utah Events by Design couldn’t help but notice her bride was frustrated at the common impression that because she was having a fall wedding, her design elements would be limited to the standard fall palette of reds, yellows, oranges and browns and that guests would have to be surrounded by pumpkins, spice candles, and maple leaves. That cozy fall scene isn’t for everyone, so a new innovative wedding design took place. This gorgeous peach and plum one!
I wanted to use a deep, romantic and striking color. I couldn’t help but notice that part of what makes fall such a beautiful season is the striking contrast in colors from the bright yellows to the deep reds and rich browns. I decided if I was going to use shades of purple, I would need a lighter color to help soften the look. I selected peach for a few reasons: it provides a softer alternative to the popular fall color orange, it’s such a calming, feminine, and soft color. I also chose it because peach and purple are an unlikely color combination and yet they work so beautifully together. In addition to these colors, I introduced elements of golds and coppers throughout the details of the shoot to anchor the look and identify it as a fall color pallet and not a spring soiree.
I wanted to explore a watercolor look which would allow all the colors to run together much like the falls leaves did outside my office window. But I didn’t want the paper suite to be the only area where this style appeared in the shoot, so I decided to incorporate the watercolor design on the wedding cake.
I simply fell head over heels for the combination of peaches and purples in this shoot. I think this design encompasses the beauty of the fall season while offering alternative options for brides saying “I do” during the autumn bridal season.
Don’t you agree? We absolutely love this alternative fall look. Thanks to the creative folks below for sharing such pretty inspiration!
