Nature is amazing; there are so many different textures, colors, and aroma's - you never know what will inspire you and where you will find that perfect color palette for your wedding celebration. A sunrise walk at Muir Beach, hiking in Mt. Tam, or a visit to your local farmer's market may be all the encouragement you need to get your creativity flowing.
The primary theme of this celebration is a wonderful combination of complimentary soft greens paired with chocolate and wheat. The bridal bouquet combines pale green orchids, tulips, and nurines in a classic bouquet. Modest table arrangements of a similar style are neatly bound by organic twine - a twist to your classic white satin ribbon. I love the use of the artichoke as a vessel for candles - this unique and fun element also looks great when added to formal flower arrangements. Rustic lanterns surrounded by river rock are a great functional accompaniment to this overall design. The table arrangements are comprised of driftwood with cattails, bouvardias, and viburnums. These clever arrangements surround a trio of pillar candles and votives. The detail in the guest book is wonderful; the ultimate message in a bottle. This creative and unique idea makes a great "mantle" decor until you are ready to read all the well wishes from your wedding guests.

Color Palette Recommendations

There are so many different ways to style a color palette primarily consisting of moss green, granny smith, and coco brown. These colors look amazing in any garden setting accented by ivory and ecru. There is a current trend leaning towards a "barn" wedding and these colors will blend seamlessly. The Mill Valley Outdoor Art Club features these color well, and they would look great at the Brazilian Room in Tilden Park.
