on themes and motifs

let me begin by saying...
NO we don't have a theme. and NO coral and teal is not the color motif of my entourage. HAHA! there i said it. but im totally digging the coral + teal color combination right now :) i think it's a good palette for a socal-ish drop dead gorgeous wedding <insert perfect lighting here and some freshly-picked garden flowers>. sigh!
unfortunately mr. im-too-macho-for-pink fiance is not too keen on having any shade of pink in our wedding. his picture of what that day might look like is a meet joe black inspired affair-- a lake, a well-lit gazeebo, black coat and tie, a skinny girl with a flimsy outfit (hehe)-- borderline morbid i must say. but in fairness, very high class, timeless and elegant indeed.
*swoon* hehehe oops i meant this next picture...
(white tiffany chairs FTW!)
so as couples must do, we ended up with a compromise. i've always wanted to have the color teal/ turquoise-- "shades of the sea" if i must say, as a reflection of our love for the beach. at one point i even thought of having a water/waves-inspired wedding, with matching wedding cake with an actual water fountain or some such thing, a waterfall backdrop, and a waterfall projector (oops! that was our little secret right there :P ) crazy!!! good thing we did not go with any of that. it was a wedding, not a children's party after all.

i still can't tell you what ours will look like, but for sure there will be a little bit of coral here, some teal there, and it will definitely be a classic, timeless, and elegant black suit affair. :)

ps. i love you mr. im-too-macho-for-pink fiance!!! hahaha... another one for you :P

  1. Loved this fabulous theme. My sister just got married at one of domestic Los Angeles wedding venues. The venue really made this day so catchy and mesmerizing. All services offered by this venue were great and affordable too.
