Make Your Wedding Pop with These Expert Uses of Color / by Kristen Bradley

We are currently loving that color is making a huge comeback in wedding design this year.  We wanted to share some of our favorite ways you can incorporate your favorite tones without your wedding looking, well like a circus.  Today, we are featuring images from Ben & Kelly Photography and Bradford Jones, both based out of Scottsdale, Arizona.  You will see they all are experts in their use of color, and do a phenomenal job drawing rich tones into their photos.  Check out these ideas below in preparation for your big day! 

Smoke Bombs

Smoke bombs - horrible name, we know!  But, stay with us, and check out these fantastic photos from Allison and Adam’s wedding at The Saguaro, located in Old Town Scottsdale.  We love the effect these have because you and your bridal party can have a lot of fun in the moment, and you can order them pretty affordably right from Amazon.  Plus, you can mix and match which hues you want to use, and they won’t stain your dress or other garments.   We also love that if you truly only want a pop of color, these are perfect for a few shots!

Dessert and Treats Table

We are in love with this treats table pictured below.  Just look at these adorable saguaro sugar cookies, (perfect for the couple’s venue, The Saguaro Hotel!), and the sprinkles cake.  We also have loved seeing other eye-catching ideas for a treats table, like a donut wall (best for indoor weddings) or a colorful candy buffet.

Ceremony Aisle Runner

You may not want to have to bright or punchy a bouquet next to your face, but are craving color in your floral pallet.  Why not use your ceremony aisle as the perfect opportunity to incorporate some bolder tones as Christine and Ryan did at their wedding?  You can also continue your theme up through your ceremony arch while still holding some slightly softer hues in your bridal bouquet.  We especially love how the structured floral runner gave way to a softer effect at the alter in these photos below.  Check them out!

Venue and Environment

Another way to subtly incorporate color is through your venue or the environment you are holding your wedding.  Take a look at these photos below from Samantha & Nate’s wedding that was held in Sedona, Arizona.  The red rocks created a stunning backdrop, not to mention the rainbow that peaked out that day was a major bonus! If you prefer an indoor wedding, an art gallery or children’s museum would also make for a colorful backdrop.
