After meeting a bride-to-be and talking with her about initial thoughts and inspirations, we put together mood boards and color palettes. Today, we’re sharing a mood board for an outdoor wedding, held in the gardens of a castle venue. Ceremony inspiration images, of a lavish floral arrangement set in a stone urn, and a grass aisle thickly strewn with petals, set a romantic, extravagant tone, perfect for this setting.
Starting with a soft color palette of peach, ivory, blush and green, we added depth by choosing flowers that also incorporated slightly more saturated tones. Peach Juliet garden roses deepen to coral at their centers. Butter-yellow parrot tulips pick up the warm tones present in cream hydrangea and stock, and ivory garden roses. Pale blush comes into play with ranunculus, and with the outer petals of pink tree peonies, while that flower’s deeper-pink, inner petals surround a yellow center. Italian ruskus, jasmine vines, seeded eucalyptus and geranium leaf added a range of medium to dark greens, and lush textures, evocative of a summer garden in fullest bloom.
