In the Pink: Blushing Wedding Day Details

Modern meets timeless with millennial pink and classic details.

Taylor Curley, creative director for the Simply Elegant Group, is a big believer in pink, especially as a neutral to showcase texture and detail. Curley mixed this subtle shade with rose gold and marble to create a fresh, refined feel, for elevated sophistication. “This couple,” she says, “embraces the idea that less is more.”

Foiled Again

The top tier of this cake by the Copper Hen is gilded in edible 24-karat gold leaf. The inside is just as flashy, with champagne baked into vanilla cake for a fluffy, unexpected flavor.

Flower Power

Artemisia Studios used peonies, garden roses, astilbe, jasmine vine, roses and ranunculus for this ultra-romantic bouquet.

First Place

A tone-on-tone white foil marbled border on the place cards matches the envelope liners in the invitation suite created by Paper Rock Scissor.

To the Letter

“The invitation was extra-large to add elegance,” says Paper Rock Scissor designer Kate Panke. She used a black vellum overlay with rose-gold foil and a rose-gold string to add dimension and texture to the appealingly soft and simple invitation.

Set in Stone

Gold flatware, glass plates and rose-colored votives from Linen Effects create an elegant place setting. The marble charger is Curley’s own—“I loved the texture of the speckled plate with the marble and the pale-pink blush linen.”
