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!

The Best Wedding Planning Tips of 2014

Taking place in beautiful Seaside, Florida, this chic navy and orange wedding is overflowing with personal details and tons of fun! A chic style and nature-inspired design elements were the perfect match for Megan and Rich’s gorgeous outdoor fete, and Holly Gardner Photography was there to capture it all. And as an added bonus, Megan is here with us today sharing insight into planning her amazing wedding- you’re going to love this one!

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

I loved searching the web for inspiration & ideas it was so fun (and helpful) to see blogs, magazines, and articles detailing beautiful weddings with personal touches. The inspiration was so helpful, and Arden and Jen at It’s A Shore Thing and Sally at Florals By The Sea helped execute all the details to perfection.

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

Ensuring you have someone you trust, it’s so reassuring to know you can step back and enjoy the day not having to worry about the details.

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

I wanted a mix of natural, classic and modern. Since we were at the beach and our wedding was a destination event…I wanted a casual fun affair.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

Enjoy the details, we got married in four months – so I was limited in time – I loved making quick decisions, inspired by the things I loved. Pick what makes you happy.

Aw, I love that Megan recommends to enjoy the details- that’s a first I think! But it’s important, especially when you’re choosing to have details that are intentional and representative of you as a couple.

I don’t know about you, but I’m loving the orange and navy color palette! This wedding is a perfect example of using bold colors in a gorgeous way. Are any of you going to be using bold colors like this orange and navy? I’d love to hear what your colors are!
