The color palette of this gold, aqua, and lavender wedding from Tracie Domino Events and Andi Diamond Photography might be the best I’ve seen yet! Inspired by the crystal clear blue-green waters of the Keys, lovely bride Lindsey wanted to incorporate aqua into her wedding design. Pairing aqua with sparkling gold elements and lavender floral accents created a stunning Florida wedding that is absolutely overflowing with chic elegance.

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

We hired Tracie Domino, a college friend, sorority sister, and established wedding planner in the Tampa/St Pete/Clearwater. She and my mother were the force behind our whole wedding. I had a few ideas, colors, and things Adam and I wanted, they did the rest!

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

That the planner we hired had a good idea of not only who we were, our style, and what we wanted, but also knew our budget. She always gave us a few suggestions for all the different vendors, but never suggested someone she knew we would love that we simply just couldn’t afford.

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

I have always loved the beach and the ocean, and the color turquoise, not teal, and not too blue, like the water in key west. This color was the center of what I wanted for the wedding…mint, golds, and whites. I had a whole Pinterest page. Then our decor company said we needed another accent color like pink or peach. In our meeting, my fiancé suggested lavender instead of pink or peach, and we all ran with it…it became the way we brought in color with flowers, table accents, and lighting. It was beautiful. Only after we were married did my loving husband reveal to me his thought process of why “purple” would go with “turquoise”… the Charlotte Hornets.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

Marrying my best friend. Our vows we wrote. Having him serenade me to his favorite song Wagon Wheel in front of all of our friends and family. Walking down the aisle to “somewhere over the rainbow” over an aisle covered in lavender rose petals…it was a total dream. I have so many favorite moments, it’s hard to pick.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

Relax. Don’t take anything too seriously. Even the things that are stressful, if you let them get you angry or upset, you lose sight of the fact that you get to get married. You are in love. And there’s a man waiting at the end of the aisle that looks at you like you are his angel. And no table charts, name cards, or decisions about centerpieces will change that. And that’s awesome.

Isn’t that color palette absolutely fabulous?! I would have never thought to combine aqua with lavender… and it makes it even better that the groom came up with the idea to use lavender as an accent color!

So tell me- what color would you pair with aqua? Are any of you using aqua in your own weddings?

So what do you think of a wedding with a theme like this? What other themes do you like for a wedding?

Taking place at the Fullerton Arboretum, this rustic garden wedding was the perfect taste of home for New Jersey natives Holly and Rol. A vibrant color palette of purples, oranges, and greens infused a bit of the garden state in with eclectic, nature-inspired details, and Candice Benjamin Photography captured it all beautifully! The lovely bride Holly is here with us today to share more about her planning experience and insight…

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

For the planning process The Knot & Pinterest were the biggest help. The Knot was really helpful in listing out every possible thing we needed to do/think about and pinterest was great for inspiration. It was fun sharing my wedding board with my bridesmaids and getting ideas together. 

My friend and bridesmaid Stacy helped me a TON. It just so happens that she works for a party rental co.  so she really carried us through the planning process. She would give me my weekly to-do list, went venue shopping with us, went to the rental company warehouse with us to choose dance floor/linens/tables/lights/table settings, etc., we had mock table set-ups at her apartment, she wrote out our entire day of timeline. She was simply amazing.  Also she hired us a day of coordinator which was a HUGE help. She set up all the decor I had, the tables, the seating chart, etc.

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

The most important thing to us was price since we didn’t have a huge budget and everything is 10x more expensive in Southern California. A close second would be quality. There were some things we splurged on like photography/video because the quality of our vendors was just so amazing. Lastly, we chose vendors who we really seemed to mesh well with. They were all very personable and easy to work  with which meant a lot to us.

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

The inspiration for our wedding was my hometown in New Jersey. Rol and I decided it would be next to impossible to plan a wedding in New Jersey (my home state) from all the way in California, so we decided to stay put in Socal for our “big” ceremony and then have a back-yard bash in New Jersey with those who couldn’t make it. I grew up in South Jersey where “the garden state” actually applies and I was raised at my parents family run farmers market. For me, I’ve always loved nature and the outdoors due to where I grew up. We really wanted an outdoor wedding so we could dance and dine under the stars, but the question was… where?!  I really wanted something that felt a bit like home and when we found the Fullerton Arboretum, we fell in love. From the community gardens, to the windmill, the cottage-style house, all of the beautiful trees, to the wisteria covered arbor, we knew it was the place we would say “I do.”  We wanted to to have a whimsical/nature/rustic kind of feel.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

My favorite thing about our wedding was our ceremony. Our pastor did such an awesome job. Having known him for several years, he knows very well the back story to our love. He compared our love for dance with our spiritual  “dance” with Jesus.  It was so beautiful and so fitting. Aside from that, dancing beneath the stars really made the night feel magical.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

I would advise brides to not take everything so seriously. In the end it’s about you as a couple uniting and sharing that day with friends and family and no one will notice if every little thing came together perfectly! Enjoy the moments!

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

 We were helped a lot by the coordinators that Disney provided, they were excellent. We also got a lot of help from Louisa’s sister and the best man’s wife, Cathy, both of whom helped out immensely with all of the little details and DIY projects that went into the wedding.

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

By far, it was word of mouth. There’s too many random reviews of everything out there nowadays, and you don’t know what’s real and what’s not, so our friends’ opinions were valued much more by us. With that said, we found Kaysha, our photographer, through online searches, and working with her was one of the best decisions we made, so I guess some good luck goes into it as well.

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

Louisa settled in on a color scheme first, and we wanted to try to stay true to that with all of our decorating decisions. We grabbed some inspiration from blogs and Pinterest online, and bounced ideas off friends, some of who had recently gotten married as well, so we got a lot of advice on what may or may not have worked well for others.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

To be honest, just that everything went smoothly and that nothing blew up in our faces, and being able to enjoy the day with our closest friends and family. And our parents’ reactions to the day was what made it all worth it. It was a blessing that everything came together so well. From a detail standpoint, the carriage, by far. Expensive, but looking back, it was the most memorable feature and worth every penny.

What is your best piece of advice for other couples?

Get coordinators and learn to let go and let everyone else take care of everything. It’s your day, and it will all go by in a flash. Spend the day soaking it all in and enjoying everything with the closest people in your life, instead of worrying about all the details. Josh is a bit detail obsessive and did not do this, and this is the only thing he regrets a bit about the day. Just know that whether you plan it or if you hire somebody else to do it, something is bound to go wrong, but spend a little more on a coordinator and let them stress about it instead of you. It will be a fraction of the cost of the wedding, but it will let you fully enjoy what took you so much time and effort (and money!) to plan.

Such great advice! I just loved this gorgeous romantic wedding! From the soft color scheme to the elegant touches, this Disneyland wedding was a beautiful success.

The hints of aqua mixed in with the pink and gold is a perfect way to add in a bit of eclectic style to a usually elegant look, don’t you think? Are any of you using a color to assist in creating a more unique wedding style? What will you be using?
