Color Series #20 : Pink + Orange + Yellow

I’ve always wanted to do a citrus inspired palette. Well, I was mostly torn in choosing what citrus colors I will include. Will it be Pink and Orange? Yellow and Lime? Orange and Lemon? I have made up my mind today and here’s what I’ve come up — a yummy concoction of Pink + Orange + Yellow.

These colors actually remind me of lemonades. Yes, lemonades. Oh geez, I think all the juices I have been drinking today have taken over me! Tee-hee. So anyhow, here’s why you should grab this color palette for your wedding. This delicious combination of pinks, oranges, and yellows is sooo refreshing to the eyes they could quench your thirst just by looking at them! Plus, they are happy colors. Dull and gloom would never exist if you have romantic pink, yummy orange and lemon yellow on your plate. 🙂 And they’re just perfect for Spring / Summer outdoor weddings. There! Have the freshest wedding ever with this citrus-inspired color palette! Enjoy!

I’ve noticed that the June drizzles are starting to pour in, and makes me think, oooh, is summer officially over? But before we let the summer smiles leave our faces, I’ve decided to bring you today a garden wedding so lively and bright, it will make you feel like it’s the first day of summer once again.
This wonderful marriage of two cultures will show us the picture of a love so pure and true, and will give us a glimpse on how, individually, each one is rich with cultural heritage too.

Kim and Kath decided to have a delicious pink color palette that reminds me of strawberries and sherbet. All those gorgeous bouquets, pretty vintage ring pillows, cute boutonnieres and watercolor inspired invitations are sure to give the color-spiration you need. You have to check out Kath’s adorable flower girl as well, wearing a traditional Korean dress. The colors are so vibrant and happy! I think it would be nice if I get to wear one someday. 🙂

I am also quite taken at how the simplicity of the bride Kath resounds with so much beauty and quiet elegance. This kind of bridal style always wows me because it takes courage to embrace simplicity especially when everybody else expects a bride to be glam to be beautiful.
