Peony Punch!

Such a bright summer day deserved a bright palette!
Monnee & Kentson went for a fun, fresh spring has sprung into summer color scheme with all the trim- it was a blast to work with her creative detailing as you can see :)
Bride & Bridesmaids in candy coated pinks and reds with that fresh burst of green, softened by ruffly dusty miller around the edges..
Daytime lanterns reveals their cute colors and floral patterns, keeping the sweet playful theme from top to bottom.
Kentson's boutonniere of candyland pink ranunculus and bursting red hypericum berries..
Flower Girl!! Q-T Pie!! Pink ranunculus and red ribbon streamers can't even compete with her adorable ric-rak adorned dress and big-girl-pearl bracelet, so cute!
Along the aisle, petite mason jars were filled with dahlias, hydrangea, and pink spray roses.
Monnee's 2 bridesmaids carried white hydrangea punctuated by delicious red dahlias in a cuff of silvery dusty miller and hidden pink bouvardia.
For Monnee herself, a fluff of pink peonies in every shade with their ruffly petals and pink ranunculus to boot!
Adorable Ring Bearer pillow and bitty boutonniere of fuzzy green dianthus and a pink ranunc.
Groomsmen & family were doted on with blush dendrobium orchids and red berries.
One of those cute details I alluded to... Super sweet vintage lunch tote in suitcase style to hold memorabilia and love notes signed by guests for M & K.
Precious rose blooms potted in biodegradable coir pots put together by Monnee and her friends- DIY at it's best.
Love under the evening lights in the tent at Orfila Winery..
I just want to say Well Done xo! to Monnee for taking a palette and expanding its potential beyond what others might have imagined belonged only to Valentines or Christmas. Truly, the sweet colors and freshness make her lovely vision work very well. In addition, she is a lovely person to know- You can read her blog and see more photos of the whole process and day, as well as life beyond the wedding here~ Pink Argyle
& of course, Many Thanks to Jessamyn Harris (www.jessamynharrisweddings) for the fantastic photos!!

Purple Purple Purple

It's everywhere you look- Purple!! Bonnie & Marty knew it would be a hit color and they were not disappointed.. there are so many ways to love purple, and theirs was very sweet.
I love how happy they are!! Bonnie's bouquet was a stylized gathering of white and purple miniature calla lilies surrounded by a cuff of lisianthus buds- it fit her personality perfectly!
Groomsmen boutonnieres of single "Cool Water" roses with lisi buds...
..And the Groom with his purple mini-calla to match his Bride.
Precious moments with the flower girl and Something old to go with the new, borrowed, and blue- Bonnie's vintage coin purse.
Sunny skies over Coronado Island's Cays Yacht Club.
Roses, lisi, and white flecked alstroemeria to deck the aisle with color.
Sometimes a single giant purple china mum is all you need! Love those fluff-ball flowers!
Table centerpieces of whites, deep to light shades of purple, grass loops and wraps of variegated tropical leaves..
Yummy cake with pearlescent beads- perfect match to the color scheme.
Thank you to Shannon Henry with Studio Carre for the beautiful pictures and credit to Sweet Cheeks Baking Company for the pretty pastry!
