A Succulent Wedding By Love & Splendor

This is for all of you lovely ladies planning a spring extravaganza. Keep on reading to find out all the juicy details of this succulent wedding from Angel of Events of Love and Splendor. Be sure to see the full wedding gallery overflowing with yellow and gray details.

Sarah and Steve envisioned a fresh and elegant springtime wedding dressed in cheery canary yellow and steely gray. They selected the striking rotunda and courtyard of Pasadena’s gorgeous city hall as the backdrop for their celebration. It offered a blank canvas for the wedding, and the bright, modern palette looked amazing juxtaposed against the looming classical architecture. Repeating elements in the wedding design included succulents, driftwood, mercury glass and an organic, California-inspired look. On the big day, the wedding shined with the perfect balance of whimsy and sophistication.
