It’s the first full week of spring, and we’re celebrating appropriately with this spring-hued Virginia wedding from Love Life Images. Cristina and Brock’s wedding palette included yellows, aqua and hints of pink, along with beautiful DIY floral prints and elements. And it was all inspired by Cristina’s shoes, as all color palettes should be! If you aren’t feeling a little spring fever yet, this outdoor River Farm ceremony is sure to put you over the edge!
From Cristina: Our wedding day was just how we pictured it during the planning process – full of love and happiness, casual yet elegant, intimate, beautiful, comfortable, delicious, and FUN! As for the color palette, yellow is one of my favorite colors and I was set on wearing yellow shoes with my dress. After looking far and wide for the right pair with no success, my mom stumbled upon the most perfect pair of yellow satin peep toes while she was in Paris. Which set the color palette into motion! After deciding on June 2 as our date, we went with light, spring-time colors. Our palette became aqua blue, inspired by our living room couch in our home (one of our favorite places to be) and soft yellow with touches of blush pink.
If I had to pick a favorite detail… it would be having the pearl rosary my late grandmother gave me when I was little as my “something old.” I held it with my flowers as I walked down the aisle – it was so special to have a part of her with me that day.
