Alex + Stephen :: Part One :: The Color Palette

As promised, this week we are sharing all of our favorite parts of Alex and Stephen's wedding that was held at Vista West Ranch last August.  Today we are kicking off their 5 part series with focus on their pretty peach color palette.  We love love love "Color Bars" like the one we've created and shared above.  This is a great tool when planning and designing your wedding... it can even help you nail down a color concept if you are having a hard time deciding between a few options.  From the get-go, Alex and Stephen knew they wanted their wedding to feel casual and nice, but not stuffy.  They wanted color, but not overwhelming color... so they went with hues of light pink, light orange, and peach.  They also knew they wanted more muted tones of the colors than pastels.  As you'll see over the next week, Alex did a fantastic job tying together her color palette through her flowers and tablescapes, the wedding party's attire, the linens and the rest of her details, right down to the real peaches that adorned the tables amongst the flowers.  The neutral background of the barn and the natural landscape of the ceremony setting lent themselves well to her soft and rustic chic style.  Alex's photographer, Erin Woosley of EE Photography couldn't have done a better job, in our opinion, of capturing the look and feel of Alex and Stephen's "rustic chic" peachy celebration.  And the photo above, that's the clever seating chart that brought together all the shades and hues of Alex and Stephen's color palette that were used in various aspects of the wedding details and decor.  We love!

Next up, we'll indulge you with the lovely wedding party attire.  Sand colored suits and bow ties on the boys + flowy bridesmaids dresses in the perfect shade of pink... we can hardly wait!

More tomorrow!
