Inspired by a wonderland of natural surroundings and colorful landscaping, this setting includes a trunk full of whimsical touches and bursts of color that, while not at all traditional, lend a joyful air to a unique jewel tone wedding look!

Bright and Vivid

The bride's bouquet is an exuberant mix of gemstone colored blooms. Bright colors and vivid tones come together in a display that is seemingly fresh-picked from the garden and put together with the singular purpose of bring smiles. 

Deep-toned and Daring

Daring to be different, this look broke all of the rules in a bold way.  How many would don harlequin-patterned tights and a gauzy gown to pose for a photograph in the arms of a mysterious tree? We love the imagery!

Playfully Elegant

What could be more fun for a bride-to-be than posing for a formal portrait on a rustic open staircase in front of larger-than-life red-painted barn doors? What a way to add your own stamp to wedding photographs!

Through the Looking Glass

It's not hard to see that Lewis Carroll and his tales of adventure served as inspiration for this storybook style wedding look. Even the bright flowers on the wedding cake embrace the sense of wonder that is so much a part of this event's style.

Color Weaves a Dream

Deep jewel tones and intense colors, flowing calligraphy and whimsical details are all combined to create a world of delight. From the time the invitation arrived, we'll bet that invited guests anticipated the fun that was in store. A detail we're in love with; even the stamps were chosen with an eye for color and design.

Black? Oh, yes!

Always follow your heart -- at a wedding or any other special event! Sheer black table runners topped by sequin-studded linen are elegantly playful. So are black chargers, napkins and gold-toned service plates. Even the black napkins and colorful menu card underscore the lighthearted nature of this celebration. 

Capturing a Literary Vision

Glorious green stemware, exotic floral centerpieces, touches of sumptuous velvet, detailed wooden ladderback chairs, and a simple wooden table seem pulled from fantasy. Gleaming brass candelabra heighten the effect.

Vintage Furniture, Velvet and Gold

Antique settees, touches of velvet, the surprise of dark, mysterious colors, literary references, an air of wonder and high adventure, of childish delight and sophisticated expression -- it's all here and it alternates between dream and expectation. What a wonderfully unique way to celebrate love!
