From Crowned Events: “For Amanda and Trenton, we created a timeless and romantic style with complementary Mediterranean accents that worked cohesively with the architecture and decor at the Darlington House. We centered their color palette around the brick and shades of blue throughout the traditional Spanish tiling displayed around the property. We complemented the preexisting terra cotta hues with buttercream, soft yellow and muted blues.
Whimsical Olive Branch Ceremony Decor
For their ceremony, we took advantage of the beautiful pre-existing arches on the Egyptian Patio and had Leela, of Organic Flora, created a grand, installation comprised of olive branches and blooms. One of our favorite parts of Amanda and Trenton’s design was their escort display, created by Sophia Loves Letters. We love engineering ultra personalized spaces for our couples, so when we spoke to Amanda and Trenton about their shared passion for teaching, the idea came to create vintage name cards for their seating chart! We completed the escort display by using soft blue ribbon to tie the name cards to the Darlington House’s iron gate.
Lemon, Blue and Terracotta Reception Details
Their color palette really came alive in the reception space, where their tables were topped with pale yellow runners, vintage inspired tableware, sky blue napkins and pops of gold, set to a backdrop of lemon trees and terracotta tiles. Each table was adorned with lush, organic feeling arrangements and candles that gave off a soft, romantic ambiance.”
