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.
