Hey y'all! It's been a busy year at Petal! One of our own got married at the end of May and Santara did not disappoint when it was finally her turn! It was the sweetest wedding and you could tell there was so much love and support in the room.
She used a rich color palette from a fig including creams, nude, blush, mauve, rich burgundy's and eggplants, with a touch of gold. I love this versatile color palette because it can be used any time of the year. She used it in the Spring as an unusual twist, but could also be used in the Fall with more focus on the darker and richer colors.
Making Santara and Dwight's flowers was extra special to me but she gave me lots to room to play! Like the paired down bridesmaid's bouquets consisting of no flowers... you heard me. NO flowers!?! I recovered and I thought there were so unique and really made her bouquet even more of a focal point. From the simplistically elegant green vines climbing up the drapery that we put on the wooden arch to the vignettes of fruit in wooden compote dishes on each table filled with blackberries, grapes, plums, and blueberries, their wedding was filled with texture, contrast, and lots of beautiful real-life wedding inspiration!
