Botanicals like these by Anna Le Pley Taylor make us weak in the knees! Shades of ruby, garnet, and blush play amidst all sorts of beautiful textures that spill from an oversized centerpiece. Bouquets that any bride would be delighted to hold are trimmed in elegant white silk ribbons and I think there are even some hints of marsala in this shoot! Pantone’s color of the year for 2015. Pops of plum in the fruits on the cake and the bridesmaid’s lace dress add a rich deep tone to this scheme which is perfect for fall and winter. And what else but a full skirted Vera Wang gown to express the sophisticated grace of this alfresco celebration.
