A Bright Blue and White Winter Wedding in North Carolina

Blue and White is a quintessential wedding color palette, and one that we’ll never tire of! Whether you’re
going light blue, like this shoot here, or adding in some vibrant reds, like this real wedding, it’s all good in our book. So, when Hart and Co. Events came to us with this navy blue wedding inspiration photoshoot, we were beside ourselves. Scroll through to see it come together beautifully…

Henry Connor Bost House & Farm, in North Carolina, was the most gorgeous location for this shoot. With the feelings of fall in the air and the foliage turning all around, it just feels magical! Moving between the house and the grounds for a small ceremony was the loveliest way to say “I Do!

What about the reception? Well, a pretty intimate table set for 4 found its place under warm streams of
sunshine at just the right moment. Set against our Navy Western linen, blue & white Chinoiserie plates, from Old South Vintage Rentals, popped to life with small gold ornate plated, from VTG VLT, to complement them.

And in the center of the table, a primary-colored arrangement of flowers from Nectar gave the tablescape that bright pop of color. We love how taper candles, in blue and white, ran down the center in varied heights, like a runner.

Of course it wouldn’t be a celebrating without the bubbly! A rustic bar sat on the porch of the house
decorated with spirits and delicious fruit to accompany. Just the place to dine al fresco, which we love to do ourselves! Cheers to that!

How to Use Bold Colors at your Holiday Party!

It’s true, we really do love fifty shades of neutral when it comes to weddings and events but our real guilty
little pleasure is seeing parties that have gone all out on brilliant, bold colors! Don’t get us wrong; neutrals will always be our first love but what if we dared play with some bright color palettes?

In your wildest dreams would you combine hot pink and vivid orange? What about a cheerful yellow with chartreuse shades of green? Don’t be shy, great things can happen when bright colors combine! Just scroll through to see more….

How about this – is it not the most incredible combination of bright pink and orange that you’ve ever seen?The details, all the way down to our Floral Monet napkin, bring this look together in a mutli-colored array of perfection. The Petal Productions team in Miami, FL, really set the bar high with this one!

Our Lipstick Velluto linen set the base for his sleek “runner” centerpiece arrangement made up of geometric vases holding flowers in clear tubes, giving it the illusion of floating! We love how the linear pattern imitates the intricate woven backdrop too.

Just add clear Mirage chairs and ta-da – a modern dream come true! This design will liven up your next
corporate holiday party or double as a chic bat mitzvah look!

If you’re looking for a more gentle transition to bright colors, how about mixing dainty yellow with shades of Greenery, Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year?

This setting, using our Grass Velluto linen, just nails that contemporary vibe! Petal Productions brought to
life a bold colored design offset with shiny optic white accents.

The contrast of dainty yellow flower against their sharp white box vases works surprisingly well, especially when paired with those unique geometric horse statues in the style of Jonathan Adler. And of course, white acrylic Mirage chairs are the perfect touch for guest seating.

Our favorite thing about this setting is how seamlessly it blends into Miami’s lush tropical paradise –
camouflaging right in for a dreamy outdoor wedding reception or a company retreat party! With so many colors and endless combinations, we think bright colors are a safe bet! And just for good measure, here’s one more time where bright colors made the party. Give it a try and let us know how it goes, we bet you’ll love it too!
