Coral + Rose Gold Inspiration

A few months ago a photographer friend and I probably had a little too much coffee and decided we needed to do something big.... thus came the Coral + Rose Gold Inspiration Shoot! We wanted to do create a look for brides to draw new and refreshing ideas from for their upcoming weddings. We've seen the blush and gold, the emeralds and pinks, the wedding whites, but I wanted to add a pop of color and go a little bit extreme with the new color trend that brides have been asking for and that was, CORAL. I've had a lot of brides asking for corals, but I wanted to add a twist onto the coral with the ombre style of going from light to dark, by using peach, coral and reds, with an accent of rose gold. The rose gold plays so well off these colors and I really love using the bold colors in the flowers to make the photos pop and add a bit of drama.  I hope you enjoy this shoot as much as we enjoyed creating it. Please make sure to check out all the amazing vendors that teamed up with us to make this vision come to life, and a special big thanks to Mirelle Carmichael for the stunning photos.

This ombre bouquet was created with coral charm peonies, garden roses, spray roses, dahlias and sweet peas. I also added in some foliage of umbrella fern and rose gold eucalyptus leaves.

A simple sweetheart table design with a trailing centerpiece is a perfect accent to any table! This floral chandelier was a dream to create, the coral charm peonies opened up perfectly and were such a stunning part. The hanging amaranths in the center brought in the flow and created a natural ombre look to the design.

I Love the idea of using all foliage for bridesmaids bouquets. These greens pop of color of the coral dresses and you can add some much texture with foliages. These bouquets included, umbrella fern, mint leaves, explosion grass, veronica, and green fern curls. 

The place settings were creating with the Rose Gold Design Master spray paint over maiden hair fern leaves. We also sprayed the fern curls the rose gold to tie into the place settings.

The menus and dip-dyed napkins and tassel garland worked so perfect perfect together!
