Today’s Black and Pink wedding planned by Winsor Event Studio is one to not be missed, it’s simply, gorgeous! This is a color combination we don’t see too often which makes it totally worth swooning about, to see how well the colors were combined. Being that Knotsvilla is big on culturally inspired weddings, Christi of Winsor Event Studio, thought it was best to share this gorgeous wedding with us as it featured many details inspired by the bride’s Peruvian heritage.
About The Black and Pink Wedding
Paolette and Josh met in a bit of an unconventional way – out at a bar. While neither of them were looking for anything serious, the connection was real and they became inseparable. Five years later they declared their love for each other in front of friends and family.
According to planner Christi, the Davis Islands Garden Club was perfect for Paolette’s vision of waterfront nuptials following by dinner under the sprawling oak trees. Her color palette of pink and black was accented with pops of yellow, a color that is auspicious in the Peruvian culture.
There were also other cultural elements as a nod to her heritage, such as Peruvian lilies in the floral arrangements, boxed alfajores cookies for favors, traditions like cake charms for the bridesmaids to pull out of the cake, as well as La Hora Loca (The Crazy Hour) where guests dress in costume and dance to fast-paced festive music for the last hour of the evening. The couple wanted a fun experience for all of their guests; even their dog stood in as the ring bearer!
The couple also incorporated some soft romantic elements, such as rows of candles along the veranda wall, storybook love quotes as table names, and heartfelt personal vows exchanged during the ceremony.
Most Memorable Wedding Moment
Paolette said “The most memorable part of our wedding was when my husband and I said our vows to each other. We wrote our own vows and hearing him say his vows made my day, as he is normally not that verbally expressive.”
Wedding Planning Advice
When asked what she would tell future brides, she said “The advice I would give other brides is to get a wedding planner because it is so worth it! Also to keep it genuine, do what you want and what you can afford, not what you think others would like or what they expect of you.”
