Some of my favorite vendors, including Rebecca Stone of Duet Weddings and Kate Holt of Flowerwild, to bring Megan and James’s romantic wedding to life – in shades of vibrant pink and red – and it’s just full of details to inspire and brighten your day!

The aisle was covered in fuchsia petals, and lined with overflowing potted arrangements.

The groom’s boutonniere perfectly echoed the bride’s red and pink bouquet.

Escort cards were displayed with pomegranates: perfect for both the vibrant red color scheme and the fall season.

Centerpieces included peonies, roses, and red (unripe) blackberries.

In lieu of a traditional guest book, guests signed a globe on the location where they are from.

Signature cocktails included a Spiced Pimm’s Cup, Blooming Champagne Cocktail with Wild Hibiscus, Raspberry Champagne Cocktail, and Sardinian Iced Tea.

      I love the pomegranates in the decor! I’ve seen apples, but I’ve never seen it done with such a cool fruit.

      One of the loveliest weddings we’ve seen! Makes you wonder why this bold combination of red and fuchsia isn’t used more often…it’s fabulous!

      This is my new favorite wedding! Such a sophisticated and romantic take on the red and pink palette! I especially love the pomegranates, the floral decor, and the earthenware jugs and pots! The whole thing kind of has the feel of an Italian Renaissance still life!

      Beautiful wedding! Love the pomegranates for the guests! The colours were pulled through well, keeping it fresh and elegant without looking tacky (i’ve seen a few fuschia explosions in my time). Well done! It’s stunning!

      Love the last photo with the petals in the air as the couple kisses. Also love the beautiful simplicity of this wedding, allowing the color to pop. This couple looks so happy and relaxed on their big day.

      I love it when brides are not afraid of full, saturated colour! The rich pinks and reds paired with the white and rustic details are to-die-for, and the bride and groom look like they are loving every minute of their wedding day.

      I am planning my garden wedding now.. I am in love with the colors here, but I am stumped on what color bridesmaids would wear. I do NOT want pink or red bridesmaids – seems like it would take away from the beautiful color saturation of the flowers. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
