Black and red each exude drama, doubly so when paired together. Sometimes a little too much, maybe. But if you think blackberries and raspberries, the dramatic colors turn sweeter. In this imagined garden wedding with its berry motif, black and red act as accents, adding a touch romance, whimsy and sophistication without being overbearing. Hints of pale blush pink and the backdrop of garden green round it all out nicely.

Mood: modern garden romance
Palette: red raspberry, vine green, pink blush, black accents
