Taupe, Sage, and Ivory – Color Theory

A muted, earthy color palette of taupe, sage, and ivory embodied the beachy laid-back vibe Allison and Brendan were looking to create on their wedding day.

Having always loved Newport it was truly a dream come true for the couple to be married there surrounded by breathtaking ocean views and their family and friends. An old weathered fence draped with a garland of greenery and flowers from Botanica Wedding Flowers anchored the ceremony site creating doorway that looked out onto the vast ocean. Bountiful white blooms filled vintage cement urns softening the weathered look as the couple said “I do.” Dinner was served upon glossy farm tables lined with greenery that was wrapped around crystal votive candle vessels varying in heights. “I loved our flowers from Botanica Wedding Flowers — especially the pops of green in the centerpieces!” Allison exclaimed. The day concluded with sugary confections and endless dancing.

Since childhood Alexandra had an affinity for the color yellow. The cheerful color symbolizing happiness and positive energy embodied both Alexandra & Ryan as individuals and as a couple making it the perfect hue for their wedding.
