This stunning blush and gold wedding is timeless, elegant, and full of romance. I love this couple’s elegant color palette, pairing a pale blush with gold and gray, and their escort cards and favors, all captured by amazing photographer Kellie Hetler.

I love the elegant style of this wedding- and the sweetheart table might be one of my new favorites! A sequin linen and beautiful florals are the perfect combination, don’t you think?

Are you planning on having a sweetheart table? Or will you be having a head table? We’d love to hear!
