This scene totally has us fantasizing about an al fresco dinner under the stars, what about you? Having lived in Barcelona for a bit when she + her guy first got married, Lara of Sealed With A Kiss Events was all about bringing the inspiration they found there together as newlyweds to this workshop shot + hosted by Daniel Kim + Charity Maurer. Naturally that meant adding a rich pop of color to bring a sense of renewed vibrance to a romantic wedding design—see what we mean:
Lara says, The first year and a half of our marriage, we went through tons of transitions including several moves across states for my husband to get his Masters degree and then one last move to Barcelona where my husband finished his program. There, something happened—our marriage started to change tones and went from a theoretical blue and grey color story to a vibrant hot pink one. We found our spark again in Spain of all places. There we spent so much time soaking up the culture and vibrance of the beloved city and just… well… we figured out how to love each other better. I took inspiration from this time in our lives when I was approached to style the Unveiled Workshop hosted by Daniel Kim and Charity Maurer.El Chorro in Arizona seems like the perfect venue for a vibrant color palette, yeah? Carte Blanche channeled Lara’s vision with a red + pink bridal bouquet accented with a navy ribbon.
And this floral ceremony arch? Best pop of color of all!
I love bougainvillea—all over Arizona—but thought it also captured that color and whimsy that I felt about my marriage again. With small details from the square pattern in the La Tavola linen representing the square street blocks in Barcelona to the artichokes and bread on the table (we ate SO many fried artichokes while we lived there!), it felt like I brought a little bit of Spain to Arizona.
Love hearing the story behind an event as spectacular as this, don’t you? Thanks to the crew below for sharing with us today…
