Chris asked Danell to marry him half way down a ski slope! :)
They live in Colorado and ventured back to Danell’s home town for their wedding. On a warm sunny day, they married at St. Joseph, (my favorite church in Seattle, can you guess why?), and had their reception at Pike Place’s Top of the Market. Full of personality, their wedding included a vibrant color palette and an ecstatic gathering of family and friends who danced through the night. My favorite parts: bridesmaids who changed from pink pumps to pink flip-flops at the reception, burgers at Dick’s Drive-In, and a deliciously sweet ice cream bar.

I love orange, a lot of people love orange, but it is one high maintenance color! Easy to misuse, complicated to blend, quick to overwhelm. So, what is one to do who must have orange in their wedding? The key is to make it work with your palette, rather than against it. Orange is best used with equally warm neutrals. A warm cream and toasty charcoal are the perfect pair to tone down the powerful color and let it stand out as a beautiful pop of energy.
Below is my compilation of items that fit this perfect palette. Flirty bridesmaids dresses, a fun Swarovski goldfish bracelet, and the star of the show is the amazingly flirty and fun Badgley Mischka ruffle flower t-strap sandal on the bottom right. Delicious!
