Inspiration Board: Pink and Orange

Bright! Elegant! Playful! The essence of Spring! Those were the keywords behind Yenta Alison’s Memorial Weekend wedding that tied in pink and orange details. The most colorful and natural way to capture the pink and orange motif was through all the variations of floral arrangements by Lei-Ann Salter of Happy Flowers Inc. in Agoura Hills, California. Pink and orange ranunculas, roses, dahlias, calla lilies and splashes of green via fuzzy little buds called kermits all contributed to a successful theme. These flower varieties were highlighted in the chuppah, bouquets, cake (which was deliciously baked by Skiff’s in Simi Valley, California) and centerpieces. The chuppah treatment also transformed into floral arrangements on our sweetheart table at the reception. This is a great way to get more bang for your buck and recycle your gorgeous ceremony flowers! Extra flower petals were sprinkled on the cake table and the legacy table where we featured wedding photos of our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents! The bright pink bridesmaid dresses by Jasmine B2 purchased at Bridal Elegance in Torrance, California allowed the color to splash through, while still providing a playfully elegant look thanks to the strapless detail on top and tea-length skirt. Even the table favors adopted the pink and orange theme. We provided guests with a yummy treat — caramel apples! — and wrapped them with an orange ribbon and a label printed in the wedding colors that read “And they lived apple-y ever after.” These seemed to be a big hit with the guests and also look great against neutral cream-colored linens. Chairs were also wrapped in cream covers, but a bright pink sash tied in a knot created pop-outs of pizazz throughout the room. Pink and orange are great main colors you can incorporate into your palette. You can always add cream, green, and turquoise hues to vary the tones.
