Nina and Dan were such a sweet couple to work with and their beautiful intimate wedding with 50 of their closest friends and family really reflected them in every way, as you will see in this post.  We blended their together… we took his more rustic style and her soft romantic aesthetic by using interesting rustic textures with soft florals and a warm soft color pallet.  Splendid Sentiments created very unique centerpieces combining drift-wood in the upright position with greenery (such a hanging amarantus) and romantic roses and other lush florals at the base and floral clusters throughout.  For additional romantic ambiance, we added hanging candles & lots of gold mercury votive candles to the table.   The color pallet was soft & romantic, using blush, soft sherbet oranges, soft pinks, and touches of white, which really gave this rustic look a more feminine touch.  The Cafe Au Lait Dahlias were such a pretty floral for these pieces, giving them a soft but very interesting texture.  To round out the romantic look and feel, we paired the floral elements with a soft blush linen and napkin and glass and gold beaded charger plate from Concept Event DesignDarin Fong did an excellent job of capturing the softness and beauty of this intimate Lodge at Torrey Pines wedding. read more
