Colorful San Juan Destination Wedding – Wendy + Brent

On the blog today is Wendy and Brent’s colorful San Juan destination wedding!  Her color palette is just stunning.  Here was her inspiration:

“The color palette was inspired by a Thank You card designed by Rifle Paper Company. We wanted something that was very bold and fun, but had a very beautiful and easy feel to it by adding in the soft peaches and shale colors. The Matron of Honor stood out being in ivory. I wanted to accomplish a live rifle card within the bridesmaid dresses, and worked nearly over one year to establish what that palette should look like. I wanted people to be surprised, so throwing in pops of tangerine and fuchsia I felt would really make it fun, unexpected, but yet the colors would still work very well together. If the girls had the same color dress, they had a different style. If they had the same style, they had a different color. Also, if they were in a pink/peach/orange tone, they were shoes that were in the green tones, and vice versa.”

“I think my favorite detail was having a custom escort card for every guests. When the guests walked up, they had to find a picture of them. The photos of our guests were either photos taken in the San Juans, with us, or a photo with the bride, groom, or both of us. The photo had a small note of what table they were sitting at. The best part was, they had to exchange the photo (that looked like a mini polaroid) for a real mini polaroid. I love personal touches and reminding people why they are at our special day, so I thought this was a really cool way of reminding our guests of that, but then also having a cool photo guest book to take home with us of all our guests.”33_san-juan-outdoor-destination-wedding-ceremony34_outdoor-san-juan-destination-wedding35_colorful-san-juan-outdoor-wedding36_mr-and-mrs-painted-chairs37_outdoor-san-juan-reception-wood-chairs38_moscow-mules-cocktail-hour-drink39_happily-ever-after-starts-here-painted-sign-at-wedding40_confetti_b_at-ceremony40_confetti-at-wedding-ceremony42_outdoor-reception-chandelier43_colorful-flowers-on-wedding-cake-for-destination-san-juan-wedding44_father-daughter-first-dance-black-and-white-portrait45_couple-walking-on-beach-at-dusk-in-san-juan
