Navy blue is an unexpected choice for a fall wedding, but together with gold, it works perfectly for the season (it would also be lovely in winter). Materials like velvet, gold leaf, and silk jacquard add even more richness to the already luxe palette. Without being too literal, there’s sort of an Art Nouveau vibe here, too, don’t you think?

Mood: richly romantic, moody
Palette: navy blue velvet, gold leaf, warm white
