We love the commencement of the design process. When we meet with a client to begin brainstorming event style, we look at a variety of medians before coming up with the final look. The client’s clothing style, favorite travel spots, their personal or hopeful home style, all in addition to inspiration photos pulled from wedding magazines & blogs. It so much fun to go back and look at the original inspiration when receiving event pictures back from the actual event set. Here, we have a very specific style a bride was inspired by and you can see how beautifully it came to fruition. Although this bride did not realize how focused her look was with the pictures pinned, when she stood back and saw them again through our designer eyes, she realized her seaside coastal style. This was, of course, a result of her upbringing of being emerged in the activities surrounding the sea, from sailing to deep sea diving and everything in between. The look was subtle with respect to the chosen venue’s grand southern, elegant ambiance, but the overall feel most certainly acquired that coastal influence. The color palette exhibiting a fresh array of soft tropical hues. Corals and peach, an array of blues and greens in all tones and tints, with touches of buttery ivory, and deep pink created the basis for the look. We utilized a variety of natural textures including white coral & succulents, drift wood and Manzanita enhanced centerpieces, organic, woven lounge pieces, and a natural grain bookshelf displaying objects d’art in an upscale beach swept motif.
