Soft and romantic spring wedding inspiration with a pastel color block palette

April 6, 2020

Now THIS is what April’s all about, right, Cakies? Those dreamy pastel hues and big, bright blooms on the table for spring weddings, bridal showers, and of course, Easter brunch. Yes, it’s totally hard to see spring wedding photos during such an uncertain time, but that’s kinda why we fell in love with the ones Rachel Owens Photography shared: as creative and inventive as the ideas Lauren Field Design styled up are, each detail has a timelessness that reassures us they won’t fade by time we’re all able to physically gather ’round.

The team chose a soft Claire Pettibone gown for their ethereal bride.

We were moved by the romantic elegance of the Woodbine Mansion and its classical architecture set amongst a picturesque landscape. The baroque shapes found in the mirrors, doric columns, and the dramatic yet delicate shapes of the interior spaces influenced our design aesthetic from the gown selection to the cake.

As wedding bloggers, yes, we’ve seen a zillion pretty blushy pastel tablescapes in our day. But this beauty sure stands out, dontcha think?! Overdone, we think not.

Inspired by the fresco paintings of cathedrals from long ago and their soft yet impactful hues, we chose a rich palette of dusty blue, lavender, rose, peach, and golden ivory. With these shades, we wanted to capture the concept of pastel color blocking in a polished way with tonal blocks in the florals, tablescape, and paper suite. This approach can also be implemented at a larger scale to color block across an entire event design.
